SPOILER FREE I caught this at a local movie house in Pennsylvania last night, on a relatively small screen. I usually catch my sci fi fixes up on the IMAX screen in Midtown, but I was fiending to catch a viewing as soon as possible. Didn’t matter as the movie was that dope. I’ve been [...]

via boingboing I know I keep talking about this recession fucking people up. But I don’t know if it’s so much the recession keeping this lil homie from getting his parents to cop him a Mac Book -or if lip synching videos and video blogging from inside the Apple Store is just his thing. Whatever [...]

I ain’t see the God perform live on stage since like forever. Last night I had the opportunity to peep undisputed greatness.

Unless your internets is broken and you don’t get all the channels, you’ve probably read or heard about angry right-wing assholes making a ruckus at town hall meetings around the country. Lawmakers on their August recess are meeting with constituents to hear their thoughts and concerns on proposed health care reform and they usually descend [...]
There’s been a lot going on of late between SlaughterHouse and Wu-Tang. Specifically, 1st, some sparring words between Joe Buddens and Method Man, and as of this weekend, Buddens and Raekwon. This weekend, during the Rock The Bells Tour in Los Angeles, Buddens was approached by Raekwon and members of his entourage. During that encounter, [...]
*Late Pass* I’ve been running around a lot this week, out of town with wife and kids, recuperating from spazzing out on you know who last week and what not, so sorry I’m bringing this to ya’ll just now. Shouts to Blackneck for covering the Daily Math in my absence. The homie Dallas Peen already [...]
Seems everyone’s fiending for a return to the 90′s … and supergroups. Nike put Kevin Durant, Rashard Lewis, Mo Williams and Andre Iguodala in a rap crew called the Hyperizers and they dropped this throwback videomercial. They mighta coulda used some 90′s ghostwriters.
It’s no secret that this recession is hitting lots of people hard. Unemployment numbers are looking better only because the rate of job loss is smaller than its been in months. Which is like a doctor saying “You’re doing better cuz you only lost three toes this month… Hopefully next month you’ll only lose two.” [...]
Last week, this dude, George Sodini, went apeshit in a Pittsburgh LA Fitness health club and shot up the joint, killing 3 women before murking himself. News of his blog rantings about his problems and planned “shoot ‘em up” spread like crazy on the internets and old media systems. The running theory is that he’s a [...]
Emmis: Hebrew for “Truth” Peter Pudge Nubby: A fictional gnome-like character from children’s bedtime stories. Famous for making assinine assumptions, stupid comments and ill timed opinions on Urban Radio based solely on arrogance, ignorance and a false sense of entitlement. I blame Byron Crawford for not finishing this dude off when he had the chance [...]
The lawyer in me hates shit like this. As posted everywhere, Liza Rios, widow of the late, great Christopher Rios p/k/a “Big Pun” is crying broke, telling how she and her kids are living in a shelter and putting Fat Joe on blast, alleging that he somehow ganked her for royalties earned in connection with [...]
Everybody knows Michael Jackson was a little crazy. But I didn’t know he was Bruce Wayne, trying to be Peter Parker, crazy. I’m kinda late on this too, but MTV has an interview with Stan Lee from Comic-Con where he says that the late great Michael Jackson approached him about doing a Spiderman movie. Stan [...]
So it’s been almost a month since the new Daily Math went live and Combat Jack and I have noticed that a few people are assuming that all of the posts are his. A little bit about me.. my shit’s all over the place. Born in BK, grew up in Queens. I grew up playing [...]
I’m late on this only because my 12 year old son was on a field trip with his summer camp playing football earlier this week when one of his camp counselors tackled him, fracturing two of his fingers. Me, him and wifey have been at the hospital all day getting dude’s shit splinted and wrapped [...]
The rule of the land goes: if you take police on a high speed car chase, you’re going to jail. If you’re black, you’re probably going to get billy clubbed and stomped. If you’re black and the cops are having a bad day, you’re getting billy clubbed, stomped and shot. But what happens when you’re [...]
It was 13 years ago today that A Tribe Called Quest’s penultimate album dropped. Beats, Rhymes and Life was arguably the most anticipated album from the 3 man crew but it received the coldest reception. Previously, the group seemed to amass critical acclaim with ease. Their first three albums: People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths [...]
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGMz4DVjRto I first came up on Kenzo Digital’s dope music project City Of God’s Son earlier this year. Described as “an experimental hip-hop opera starring Nas, Jay-Z, Ghostface, Biggie Smalls, Raekwon, Samuel Jackson, Deloy Lindo and Laurence Fishburne. It is a crime drama/coming of age tale of three fictitious characters growing up in a crime-ridden [...]
So last night the experiment went down. Me, Eskay, Dallas Penn and Marvelous Mo collabo’d with A-King from PNC Radio where they let us invade with the Nah Right Radio concept. We all started a bit tentative until I dropped my drank. Once the Grey Goose hit the floor, it was 2 hours of consistent [...]
I remember when I first met Memphis Bleek (Malik Thurston Cox). This must have been around 1995, when he recorded “Coming Of Age” with Jay-Z. He was about 16 years old then. Jay’s protege. They recorded that song way before “Reasonable Doubt” dropped. Crazy how they was putting that album together, bits and pieces, and [...]
Cuz some stories just don’t go away… Larry Wilmore from the Daily Show busts down how Henry Louis Gates was ecstatic that he was arrested by a white cop in his own home. Funny Shit.
“It’s nineteen ninety-now, and there’s certain individuals who swear they rollin’ hard and get robbed on principle.” -mos def It took a little while for the whole Nas/ Kelis thing sink in for me. I don’t know how much money the god Nasir makes, but regardless, I think that 40K a month for child support [...]

In the late 1980’s, around the time that the grimy streets of New York City lay in stark contrast to the colorful tops of crack vials that filled them, Squeegee Man was born. The city was broke and broken. Ronald Reagan and his conservative agenda forced the city to put its budget to the guillotine. [...]
