Video: recording 'Super Friends' In studio ... w/ Fresh Daily, Mickey Factz, Oddisee, Print and mad others

So this track came out 2 days ago and its utterly ridiculous number of artists...The track is so good they probably just decided that they should all jump on it..Some of hip-hops best up and coming voices...if you missed it...


I'm out..I 'disappear in a sandstorm woooosshhh'

Andy Warhol X Bianca Jagger X Steven Spielberg...WTF!!

Sitting in a room and talking about random ish....but seriously WTF are they talking about...?

Jay-Z + Radiohead = Jaydiohead via Minty Fresh Beats

So we all knew the two artists that set the remix and blend worlds going nuts the last couple of years...some one would go out and remix the two....This was a natural it came out of my own brain....well anyway this tape is freaking amazing...I'm listening to it as I post this as usual when I post Mixtapes......The 10 track Mix was created by Minty Fresh this one...


tracklist + play by play:

1.Wrong Prayer <---Beyonce intro..Whoa!! Like the feeling of Soulful Rock music..
2.99 anthems <---Another great blend selection..
3.No Karma <---Nice....
4Lucifer's Jigsa w< play this rollin in a drop top with some shades on
5.Optomistic Moment <---Two of my favorite songs...not my favorite blend
6.Dirt Off your Android <---Very Very Minty fresh..gonna play this a hundred times...
7.Dreaming Up <---just remembering how great these Radiohead records are
8.Change Order <--Brilliant mix!...Great selection
9.Fall In Step <---Let me just say this...I feel cool listening to^^^
10.Ignorant Swan <----Saving the best for last....WOOOOOOW....

SPZSHIP Artist Spotlight: Lovejones aka Ferris Bueller

I love finding new artists with great talent but little buzz or acknowledgement and watching them develop. I stay up late lookin for that new new....its just how I when I find a great artist its like finding a diamond in the I am starting this series to shine a spotlight on new artists that I think you should check out.

Today its Lovejones aka Ferris Bueller out of Chicago. This young MC has been using youtube, local shows, and a gift for lyricism(dude can spit for real) to build a little following and a silent buzz on the net. Enough so that it seems that he has even caught the ear of hip hop wonderkid 9th wonder. Take a listen to 'Daydreamin' from Lovejones..SPZSHIP's first artist spotlight....

Imagine a computer that weighs 1 pound. Could fit in your pocket and has global 3G capability and a fresh OLED touch screen and a slide out Keypad.

The 2+ is a massive upgrade with more power, better memory, bettery battery life, and a touchscreen oled the release of their Model 2+ is looking like they may just have the breakout model.....Its one of the best designed UMPC I've seen.

Based on the 1.86GHz Intel Atom processor and 2GB RAM, the OQO model 2+ offers performance up to twice as fast as its predecessor and includes an embedded touchscreen for easier input.'

Nike Air Yeezy: 3 Colourways due in March 09'

These are the first images of the 3 Colourways that are slated to drop as a Quickstrike in March....Those Black on Blacks are murdering sh--!!! The Air Yeezy will clearly be the biggest sneaker release of 2009. Some people like em some people hate em....I'm not all that big into sneakers, maybe more than the next...but its hard to deny how fresh these are. They say ohh all Kanye did was take 3 different kicks (bape roadsta, Jordan 4, hyperdunk....3 of my favorite kicks....) and fuse them...but so what! Can you come up with a better design??

Video: Blue Scholars - Coffee and Snow + The Ave ...Makes Me Miss Seattle..

The thing that makes me love this...other than that this track is f___ing the fact that I'm from Seattle and my Dad is down here visiting from Seattle and I keep hearing these stories about how bad the snow is up there...and so Blue Scholars trapped in the snow, like everybody else, decided to take out their camera and give a glimpse into Seattle life..and than I listen to the track below...and I start to reminisce about some fun me and the homies had messing with college kids on 'the ave'...I love it when art does that...Man, I gotta go back and visit!

Blue Scholars - The Ave

Seattle I see you..

Item of the week #3: Nike Court Force Lux

The Nike Court Force Lux was released in November and made available @ Undefeated (where all the cool people buy their kicks)and other tier 0 account retailers like both Black and Grey, as pictured, the kicks have a Suede upper giving off the look of a Street/Dress hybrid. People like me who hate not being able to rock my kicks at the club and who like to rock grown sh-- find these to be a God send from the brain trust at Nike..But I'll let Nike explain it.....

'Lux is driven by a particular level of taste and recognition by those few sharing the same point of view. Lux is a subtle nod of approval vs. a shout of 'look at me.' Lux is about everyday and all occasions vs. hidden in your closet.'

This is the first sneaker launch for Nike with the 'Lux' concept and moving forward more items will be released by Nike using the "lux' concept in different facets of Nike's premium design items. 4 or 5 items are expected to come out each year following the Lux Concept. And these right here are a fantastic start.

retail: $180...and yes they are still available

The Twelves - Works for Me ...Bacardi Live Films

World Renowned remix artists The Twelves are best known for their remix of M.I.A's 'Boyz', but impressed the sh-- out of me with this track which is their own production. This track is major catchy like that Virgins 'Rich girls' track. This track 'Work For Me' hit the web back in July and has since been played all over the world. This video popped up on discobelle and as simple as it is..I always appreciate artists getting in front of a camera and performing their art for the public to enjoy..even if its a couple of dudes punching buttons and bobbing their heads.

The Twelves - Works for Me
