I don’t know if you heard but TMZ posted something about Tupac Shakur being alive and well. They even claim to have a “recent” picture of him throwing some back in a bar reportedly in New Orleans. I don’t believe it, TMZ needs more people. But if dude did happen to be alive, does that [...]

I’m not a fan of the whole drug rap genre thingie. Maybe it’s because I’m not too into the systemic destruction of a darker peoples. Or could be that 99.9% of these cats rapping it ain’t never did it like how they say they did. Clipse, I been effin with them since their debut album [...]
What’s better than good Hip Hop + Comic books? I called my brother from another borough Dallas Penn this weekend to see what was popping off since I was playing Mr. Dad with my four kids. He told me he had just taken a “deuce” at Bloomingdale’s while in the midst of shooting a DOOM [...]
I missed this last Friday, 7pm on Nicktoons. Not too keen on the yung Tony Stark, but heard and read it was dope. Did anyone see it?
Wow. You both know how much I love, live for blog beef. That shit right there is what brought me to this game in the first place. Being that we somewhat fit into the Hip Hop blogger category, it’s most definitely par for the course. It’s kinda weird though, when two of my favorite bloggers [...]
He goes and drops the “nappy headed hoes” thing on Twitter. I’m just saying.
Previously: Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Once again, and like clockwork, T goes in with his memoirs. Here with another installation is Part 3 of Chronicles Of A True Hustler: A few weeks after I moved back home, Uncle Mark came to visit us. Uncle Mark is Mom’s younger brother, the youngest of her five siblings. [...]
A lot of ya’ll have been requesting that I write a book of some sort or another. I actually did write one a couple of years ago, “Bling, The Hip Hop Jewelry Book”. My publisher is Bloomsbury, the same publisher that owns the worldwide rights to the Harry Potter franchise. Yes. I roll with Harry. [...]
Perception. is. reality. Rick. Ross. is. a. fraud. “Deeper Than Rap”. is. almost. perfect. Almost. When he rolled up on the national scene in his white Maybach and monster single “Hustlin’” back in 2006, we all knew Rick Ross wasn’t being 100% with us. Especially with him bragging about how fabled drug lord Noriega owed [...]
“GET IN THE VAN. DO YOUR THING. GET OUT OF THE VAN.“ Now that your boy is coming up on his Internets Celebrity status, I’m getting emails from all types of people asking me to play their songs, showcase their blogs and such. I was going over some of them and checked one I received [...]
“My slow flow’s remarkable, peace to (Mateo) Now we smoke weed like Tony Montana sniffed the ya-yo” Notorious B.I.G. “Live Freestyle – ’95″ One has to be special when a famous rapper drops your name in his raps. Extra special even when that rapper is considered by many to be the G.O.A.T. of Hip Hop, [...]
Previously: Pt. 1 The homie T really liked the way it went down last week, and we’re loving the comments. Please keep them coming. Like I expected, he went in and blessed me with part 2 earlier this week. That being said, I proudly bring to you “The Chronicles Of A True Hustler”, Pt. 2
This past weekend, I was up in Ithaca, NY, speaking on a panel at my Alma Mater, Cornell University. I was on a panel with a couple of Cornell grads who ran with their Ivy League degrees and went on to having a career in the music industry. Like the homie Londell McMillan, a fellow [...]
Lars von Trier’s Antichrist – Official Trailer from Zentropa on Vimeo. Sorry I’ve been taking a while cooking up some more posts. They’re coming, trust. But in the meantime, I just came across this trailer which looks creepy as all “hell”. The movie is directed by this Danish cat Lars von Trier. Starring Willem Dafoe [...]
Dunno if you’re up on the recent string of animated straight to DVD/ blu-ray hits DC has been dropping. With dope titles like “Batman: Gotham Knight”, “Justice League – New Frontier”, “Superman – Doomsday” and “Wonder Woman” their next heat rock “Green Lantern – First Flight” is looking good. Plus they landed a PG-13 rating [...]
Other than that college song, I have not given dude a listening too. Too much hype, plus that whole white rapper who sounds a little bit like the G.O.A.T white rapper thingie. Decided to pass on him until the CD dropped, give him the full dissection. Just listened to this. Sounds like a white rapper [...]
I never idolized drug dealers. Their way of life seemed too risky and way too dangerous. I do deeply respect the few that I know. And I know a few. Seems like the ones I knew the best were filled with an incredible sense of wisdom, a clear sense of mission as to why there [...]
Kanye on SPUploaded by yardie4lifever2 I do have kids.
50 cent talks about his ongoing feud with Rick Ross (Big Boys Neighborhood Exclusive) from qdeezy on Vimeo. Even when he’s serious, he’s funny.
If you’re younger than say, 34, 35, close your eyes for a minute and as impossible as it may be, try to imagine a world without Hip Hop. My first experience with Hip Hop was in the summer of 1978. My best friend Frank, who lived up the block and was two years older than [...]
A couple of days late, but the 1st quarter of 2009 is in the can. That means I survived my first quarter of blogging on the regular. Yo! This. daily. blogging. shit. is. an. effin. grind. I have a whole new level of respect for you internets soldiers out here in the blogosphere who have [...]
Not that you might care, but I’m a big film buff. Love the movies. All types of movies. My favorite though, is horror. When I was five years old, me and my older cousins were left alone, unsupervised by adults, on a cold wintry Saturday night. As my oldest cousin went to sleep, I stayed [...]
I first heard about the rapper 50 Cent back in 1999, when my dude and former client Deric “D-Dot Angelettie, p/k/a The Madd Rapper produced and was featured on 50′s 1st single “How To Rob”. “How To Rob” was that perfect single for a rapper trying to get noticed in a market then flooded by [...]
