School’s in session, internets. In the first installment of the Real Architect of the Matrix (It’s been a minute, hasn’t it?), we met Edward Bernays: Sigmund Freud’s nephew and the father of Public Relations in the epic BBC documentary series: The Century of the Self. Today’s episode, called The Engineering of Consent, takes a look [...]

Only thing during the work week worser than a Wednesday is a Tuesday. I felt compelled to dig into my stash until I found something I thought you might enjoy. I decided to lend it to you, let ya’ll hold it for a minute. [||]. A clip from one of the dopest cult underground flicks [...]
You see that picture above? Nothing pretty about it. Billy Danze and Lil’ Fame do not make for a pretty picture. No colorful tight pants, happy feelie dance steps for the kiddies, shirtless men running around gyrating to swoon female fans. No effin way in the world these dudes’ll ever land prime time with Oprah. [...]
You know how every now and then I’ll drop some random personal rambling quasi-motivational posts on ya’ll? This is one of them. Was try’na wait til the end of the month, you know, bring in the last quarter with a bang. But sometimes my thoughts take over, and I’m learning slowly how to get out of [...]

Let me switch it up a bit. I told ya’ll about my homie Gabe a few months back, how he enlisted with Uncle Sam in our fucked the fucked up great war against terrorism. Gabe was just deployed to Afghanistan earlier this month. My dude just sent an email letter (gotta love technology) and I [...]
*LATE PASS* You like rough sex? Me too. Sometimes. The homette Angela Yee put me up on the daggering craze a couple of months ago. No, not like that. Via Twitter. Daggering, or “daggeration”, is Jamaican slang for very, very VERY rough sex. According to the Urban Dicktionary, Daggering is where the penis [||], during [...]
I feel so bad. I so should not have started this. Some of you may know about my past issues with Peter Rosenberg, the hackjob radio personality ruining currently co-hosting the Hip Hop morning radio show at New York’s Hot 97. I used to be a big fan of Hot 97, back when they had [...]

“All white men is runnin this rap shit, Corporate forces runnin this rap shit, The Tall Israeli is runnin this rap shit” – Mos Def, “The Rape Over” I haven’t written a post like this in a while. Not that I ran out of them, stories of my days as a record exec, but because [...]
September 11, 2001 was a good day. Or at least was gonna be one. I was in the middle of re-negotiating Jaheim’s contract with Warner Brothers, and was looking at bringing home a fat stack, even though his manager Pookie was becoming a royal pain in the ass. On top of that, I had the [...]
For real though. Not that I was initially asking, but when the homie Marcus Troy sent me this article from The Vigilant Citizen, I read it and it most definitely had me going “hmmmm”. I’m usually not down with the conspiracy theorist set, but you can’t deny that some strange shit has been going down [...]
Once again, sorry I kept ya’ll. Summer’s over and I had to take care of some personal business. Took a long ass weekend off and escaped to the mountains of Pennsylvania where I get minimal to no internet service. I need that sometimes. Even though she’s a Brooklynite like me, wifey hates the Labor Day [...]
I heard about this a couple of months back when it first hit the book stores as a monthly comic title. I kinda slept on it, not really, I just prefer to read dope series in trade form, collected volumes of the individual issues usually packaged better in quality. They call them graphic novels. But [...]
Holy fucking Moley! Not even a day after Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint 3″ leaking and I’m downloading getting another advance listening copy of Raekwon’s “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt II” from my same friends in high places. Since the big wigs in the industry continue in recognizing me as a world renown taste maker and [...]
So the album leaked was sent out to several world renown taste makers today. I was one of the fortunate individuals to have received a copy for review purposes. I guess the powers that be heard I was a dope blogger who also happened to be a long-time Jay-Z fan. A lotta songs have been [...]

It’s back to school season and you know your boys at the Daily Math have to go in and drop some shit to feed that cerebrum and cerebellum. A couple of months back I was listening to WBAI radio, and during one of their myriad pledge drives, they played clips of a BBC video documentary [...]
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwPEwZvoRCY Late night web surfing. Stumbled on this joint from ’95 by Little Shawn. One of the first uses of “Little” in a rapper’s name. Took me back to how dope the game was during the ’90′s. A few of my peoples, along with the celebrity cameos is in this video. I ran into Shawn [...]
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eW2avxc7zSI You already know I’m locked in deep with this title. No need for any types of reviews and such. Just wanted to share a bit of what I’m seeing til consecutive bedtimes at 5am. Bruce Wayne is not having a good time.
Anyone who knows me knows I can’t muthafucking damn stand Microsoft. Fuck a Bing. Fuck a Windows. Fuck a Xbox360. Fuck ‘em all… I hate ‘em. But honestly, as virulently anti-Microsoft as your boy is, the last thing I was expecting was to see the picture above. Turns out someone in Skip Gates’s long-lost cousin’s [...]
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlzoL-wQwio I’m in the market for a new phone and I was digging around looking for reviews and I came across this video. “They should have never gave y’all kniccas no iPhones.” Or at least access to the App Store. Funniest shit is that in the right car system, you might could cause some real [...]
*Late Pass* So I personally haven’t posted in a while. Been playing that new Batman video game “Arkham Asylum” on the PS3. Some are saying not only is it the best Batman video game ever, but THE best super-hero game ever made. It is that dope. Keeping me up for the past two nights until [...]
