Welcome back my dude. Live your life to the fullest! httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BeTqapowAU UPDATE: Shyne remains in custody due to immigration status. Uncle Sam still [...]
I copped most of this off the internet about a year ago. Someone took the initiative of compiling most of Jay-Z’s discography. I’m a Jay-Z stan fan like that. BP3 had me reminiscing on old Yung Hov though. This collection reminded me why Jay-Z is top contender for GOAT. I linked this from Kevin Nottingham’s [...]
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3VgBR0_weA I eff with Adidas. But after they eff’d with the homie Dallas Penn like this, I might have to take a hiatus. Power of the dollar and what not. Word to Byron Crawford, a free shake in any flavor on me to anyone who gets that chick fired.

One of the ugliest logos in history managed to change history. Hadn’t had contact with my peoples from Bad Boy in like months. Hit ‘em on the email yesterday afternoon, me wanting to reminisce, joke with them about some funny shit we saw back in the early nineties, she hit me back on the Blackberry [...]
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 [...]
