Saw Brother Ali at Bowery last night. Very dope show. Next time he's coming through your 'hood, I highly recommend checking it out.
Many of you know I am Kanye superfan number 1. However, I am not going to the show at the garden. Some things you just have to stop and say, "Hey. I don't need to spend $154 on this." Although I'm sure that same week I'll have one of those days where I drop $25 to see a shitty movie, then go drop $30 on drinks, and $20 on a cab, and $75 on a replica Mike Pagliarulo jersey. So I guess it all evens out. Right? Baseball season starts for the Yankees Monday and I could give two sh*ts. They're all on steroids and f*cking Jose Canseco's wives, so who gives a sh*t anymore. Someone wake me when the NFL starts up again.
WTF am I even talking about at this point?
The choice cuts...
FRIDAY, MARCH 28!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fat Joe - "That White"
Which angle should I even take for this one? The fact that this is the return of DITC Fat Joe raps? Or the fact that this is the first time in a while I said "OH SHIT PRIMO YOU DONE DID IT WITH THIS ONE!". F*cking ridiculous track. And if you aren't downloading it already, then just hand in your Georgetown starter cap.
Hard 2 Obtain - "Hip Hop Lifestyle"
This is one of those groups that every time you say you love them, someone is quick to say they weren't all that. That their "legacy" has become something more than it really is because people are reaching for underrated 90's gems. What can I say? I was a fan of the album, and I was a fan of all of the b-sides and unreleased I heard. This is one of those tracks, with the ill Krs sample. Here's a link to the video that introduced me to the group one late night as a kid watching Yo! MTV Raps : http://youtube.com/watch?v=FeZO_hZZo3Q ("LI Groove").
Nine - "Lyin' King"
The only song to my knowledge that starts over again so that the emcee can transform into his more "known" voice. This was a great track off of Cloud 9, especially considering the era in which it was dropped. He's aiming at many emcees on this one (without naming names). Dopeness. Download it.
Have a good weekend all.
Happy birthday Axiom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
