I’ve been running that a lot recently. For The Win! That phrase is dope. Just saying it, blogging here or letting it fly on Twitter makes me feel good. Feeling good is important. Essential even. It’s good for me. You too. June is here peoples, does that make you feel good? I dig when the [...]

Guaranteed Spoiler Free! I figured I would take my 11 and 12 year old sons with me to see the new Sam Raimi flick “Drag Me To Hell”, especially since it’s rated PG-13. Having basically grown up with the Spiderman franchise and blowing their minds by having them view “Dark Man” earlier this year, they [...]
I don’t remember specifically when our paths crossed, but from what I remember, he knew me before I knew him. I didn’t really know how impactful I was in the industry at the time, being that 1st entertainment attorney in the game that claimed hip hop culture. The attorneys before me were at closest, of [...]
I don’t really follow this Charles Hamilton rapper dude with the Sonic The Hedgehog fetish too much. I think I’m kinda too grown for that. Plus, I’m not trying to post up every event that goes down in hip hop. But this lil clip right here that’s been circulating across the blogosphere of late is [...]
Previously: Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Pt. 3, Pt. 4, Pt. 5 Just in time to wrap up the week, as well as to bless ya’ll with some reading material during this Memorial Day weekend, the homie T just dropped his latest installation of “Chronicles Of A True Hustler”. T, for real my dude, thanks so [...]
LEVERAGE. Defined as positional advantage. It means having an advantage over others, particularly when negotiating a deal. Leverage is key. If you ever find yourself having the upper hand in a deal, never ever give up your positional advantage. Summer of 1996. I was representing Chico Debarge as he was recording his album “Long Time [...]
The homie Mookie over at Def Thought thought it would be a good idea to interview me. I was most definitely interested as well as honored. Didn’t know he would go that in with regard to my background, but he was able to get more shit outta me on his site that I usually drop [...]
So word on the Internets is that I fell off because I cut back on my standard 2000 word posts, which, I guess, is what keeps a bunch of ya’ll coming back. Or I fell off on account of how I stopped dropping behind the scenes stories about my days as an attorney in the [...]
Whaddup B? Our good homie Dallas was the first person to ever put me on to you a coupla years ago. I checked your performance at Fort Greene Park two summers ago. I even brought my kids with me. No lie, you killed it homie! I’ve been following your work ever since. I truly dug [...]
Fucking Cam’ron. I hate that his albums require multiple listen to’s before judging the final product, eccentric bastard. Been banging this piece for a week now. An acquired taste yes, but fuego nonetheless. A public apology to all Cam fans. + 3/4 Killa!
I kinda slept on this, but yo, Wanda stays keeping it 100%. Not mad at her at all.
Previously: Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Pt. 3, Pt. 4 I really appreciate the fact that my friend “T” is extremely diligent in trusting me with his very personal story. I am also very thankful that dude is patient with me taking a couple of extra days to post his work, only because I’m trying to [...]
I hated that last Terminator flick with the chick roboid. Plus, I’m wary of the upcoming “Terminator Salvation” having a PG-13 rating. Any Terminator joint should be nothing less than R. Still and all, this newly released 4 minute clip kinda looks dope. I made it a point to miss that “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” basura [...]
I’m not a Trekkie. Them cats epitomize the corniness in corn ball. I always rocked with the young James Tiberius Kirk though. Maybe it’s because my intro to good science fiction, not that throwaway ish, was the original “Star Trek” series, the reruns of which I watched religiously when I was growing up on the [...]
I remember a few years ago when I had the opportunity to screen “Matrix Reloaded” before it came out. The next day, a couple of people asked me what I thought and I let ‘em know how much it sucked ass. Some people were so pissed off at me, like if I said something about [...]
It’s been five years since Eminem dropped his last lp “Encore”, which was at most… meh. His most recent venture “Relapse” found it’s way into my ipod today. Here’s my review:
Previously: Pt. 1 Special thanks to Mr. Dick On Wheels (NSFW) and [||], Dallas Penn and Terrence Cam.
When they dropped their “The Bake Sale” ep last year, I was like, meh, decent concept of going retro via old-school as their whole platform, but not much else. Just copped their latest 18 song mixtape “Gone Fishing” mixed by ATL DJ Don Cannon. The production is dirty, heavy, dense and just top-notch dope. Beats [...]
I’m not trying to swerve out of my lane and claim to be that sneaker dude like, say the homie Dallas Penn. And I haven’t rocked these since like ’88. Lupe Fiasco can rhyme his ass off, but I’m not really a fan of his. But cot-damn! I need a pair of these in my [...]
“Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder” I’ve always liked Cam’ron as a rapper [||]. Not that he was ever that dope, just dope enough. What I also liked was that Cam’s been able to be consistent in being unpredictable, and also, unfortunately, inconsistent. He hasn’t always delivered, and even though he actually led the “dumb [...]
Well, they should’a!!!
Previously: Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Pt. 3 T is a beast with his very personal and true story. Here with another installation is Part 4 of Chronicles Of A True Hustler: She’s dead. She was drug free but died of an overdose at the age of 14. The pastor who presided over her funeral referred [...]
This has GOT to be the most bizarre commercial I’ve ever seen in my entire effin’ life. Especially because it’s no jokes. WTF 2x!!!
My man Fritz put me up on this cat Lee from Brooklyn. Told me Lee was a wheel chair bound paraplegic who was now living the life of a porn star. WTF? He then pointed me to Lee’s web site Dick On Wheels (NSFW) and [||]. I checked the site and… let’s just say I [...]
