lol..'Its got like that... the mooovess..you know what I'm sayin' ...Yeah..
I love this song....No need to explain...Yes, I like Peter Bjorn & John....If you never heard their music and just went off their name you would think they were a Yucalali(not even sure what that is or if thats actually how thats spelled) playing trio from the Netherlands?
Peter, Bjorn & John - Nothing to Worry About
I've been such an Obey fan since I was about 20 and I started getting deeply into politics(Poli Sci grad) and Shepard's ability to use his art to support and set a public tone for the proggressive movement is inspiring. With the Obama's transition Commitee's launch of the Inaugural Commitee Store , to celebrate Obama's inauguration, Shepard has added his own work for the inauguration including pins, stickers, a tee, and this 'Be the Change' poster for sale. One is a plain poster for $100 and another is a signed poster for $500. Definitely cop the poster...a no brainer collectible.
This is the Loren Kulesus Cadillac Concept car...This car was designed for Cadillac's 100th anniversary.....I can see myself in this...driving up to my futuristic Spanish Villa out in Malibu...sorry, little bit ahead of myself...CTS 2020?....I love Concept cars they're generally way cooler than what actually ends up on the road and I love Cadillac...I drive one...And this is just retarded...
Not the first to post it thats for sure...But he sent me this video via Myspace and I really liked this...I'm not gonna lie I wasn't that hip to Convinced..I heard some tracks before, but I've been listening to some of his music and I gotta say its good sh__! Artist profile coming soon...for now enjoy this video...+ baby girl in the video..?? I'm not mad Convinced....

Was wondering when these 2 would hook up on a joint..Pharrell and Wayne link uponthis newtrack Yes!....I think this collab was delayed due to the whole Wayne, Bape, Clipse thing...whatever..Pharrell X Dubstep?
Lil Wayne - Yes ft. Pharrell
So here is the Yeezy and Louis V collab sneaker 1 of 6 different designs that are to be released...Yeezy wanted to have a jump on the leak..Verdict: Coo, but a dissapointment...I'm sure at least 1 of the other 5 will be more interesting..
Adam goes in on Justice's Nazareth and gives us yet another MGMT 'Electric Feel' from a rapper...But this time its not just some rapper jumping on the original production....One of my favorite up and coming European artists Adam Tensta and his crew @ RMH remix MGMT's track and get Dida to jump on it. Good stuff check it out....Excuse the Myspace shouts at the begining...

Couple of days behind on checking On Smash, but after seeing this I have to say I now know why some good albums flop on the charts....some thoughts...
1. Put all your label project money into a big video for the sh__tiest song on the album..
2. Put the least amount of time and creative thought behind the video for one of the best..
3. Don't even make a video for the best song (Get Your Money)
4. Give your album a silly, shallow, and frivilous title 'Songs about Girls'
5. Listening to Label people
The mix artists fromELSEWHERE give us this mix for the female focused events and marketing company Lovemade...a very cool mix of some old stuff...laidback and downbeat material from artists like Sneaker Pimps, Lali Puna, D'Angelo, The Cardigans, Janet Jackson, Ladybug Mecca, Telepopmusik, En Vogue, Norah Jones, Slum Village, SWV, Lily Allen, Notwist...AHHHHHHH*me yawning*..shi__ making me sleepy....cure for my insomnia?
and since I know some of you dont f___ with M4a I loaded an mp3 version..
hipped me to it = Pauline

Let me just make this clear I haven't skated seriously since I was like 8 or 9, but it seems to me that when you add a naked woman to just about anything it makes it about infinitely cooler....so Doodah gives us these...The 4 set include Isabeli Fontana, Lara Stone, Toni Garrn and Edita...Not the first or even the coolest skateboard decks with women or even supermodels on em, but I just thought these were pretty coo..

Ahhhhh yes....on BET's 'The Deal' with Memphitz.....Man, its really hitting me that hip-hop is the only music form that rebuilds itself in this way....when one era ends its tossed out it doesn't just fade away...Say hello to 2 guys working on doing the tossing...

I thought this was a joke when I read it....but its actually serious. It doesn't seem that this was a real threat but its still funny/scary/odd..The story via URB:
Roth gave a statement to the FBI, and has been asked not to speak about the incident at this time. We will try to get at him ASAP.
According to his publicist, none other than Asher Roth was involved in detaining the man who just made a bomb threat on an Atlanta-to-LAX flight. The rapper was on his way to LA for a performance on Carson Daly. The LA Times reports:
"The unidentified man was aboard Delta Airlines Flight 110, which was approaching Los Angeles, when he got up and stated he had a bomb, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
"There was an altercation with multiple passengers, who ultimately subdued the man with plastic ties. At one point he tried to exit through one of the aircraft doors after the flight landed at LAX."
Hip Hop DX confirming.
They were clearly making a bunch of love songs for L.A. and whats its like to live here I can relate to that..

The video of the interview on Angela Yee's Rumors Shade 45 radio show where Joe Budden and Vlad of Vlad TV go at it over Vlad TVs questionable hyping of rapper Ransom into violence. I thought this was a very interesting discussion about hip hop beef and hip hop 'journalism' and blogs....If your familiar with Budden's whole situation with Ransom and Vlad TV's 'coverage'/hyping of Ransom and his entourage's response you should see this.
I love Nasalization font..BBC adds a little twist to the font....this new prnit is apart of BBC's S8 Spring/Summer Releases...
I've learned, since I've been blogging, that insomnia is great for the blog. Cause I end up with sh__ like this before most everybody else has posted it already...Nice mix of some old verses...Ok I'm done with the Biggie and Eminem posts until I get some new sh--.
Notorious B.I.G ft Eminem - The Glorious
'I never went to college but I f__ked a lot of College Bit__s' Yeah thats about how I imagined it.

This is another unreleased Biggie Demo track that was just leaked..supposedly this is going to be on the 'Notorious'soundtrack....Its nice hearing some of this stuff thats leaking out....this comes on the heals of the Microphone Murderer leak off the Mister Cee demo tape Biggie did. The great thing about these records is that they really sound like demos and you can see Biggie's raw talent shine through. And on 'Love No Hoe' it actually sounds like Big is trying to flow like Slick Rick paying homage...These are both classic audio clips.
Notorious B.I.G. - Guaranteed Raw
Love No Hoe
The Nixon Newton comes in 4 different colorways. The watch comes in Japanese Quartz and has an led light display..I love Nixon's design ethos..
purchase @ Nixon for $100
Its pretty clear that the hip-hop electro fusion thing is big in Europe right now and seems to be the it thing...seems like a natural progression from the whole Grime movement...With artists like Wiley, Kano, Adam Tensta and others making major play on European Charts. U.S. charts are a whole other beast. But I'm not mad European artists have their own flavor and bring something different to the game...U.K. artist Kase clearly wants to be the next artist in the succession. Kase goes over a Busy P production in this one. And he just got an important shout from P over at Le Cool Cats...
Kase - I'm the Shit (prod. Busy P)
you can see Kase's video for 'Ray Ban' on the other side...
Terry Kennedy's wet dream come true^^^
So Louis Vuitton is gonna be selling this Louis Vuitton Skateboard case along with 3 Sprouse spray painted skateborads for $8,250. The proceeds will be donated to charity to celebrate the launch of its new Sprouse collection inspired by collaborations with Marc Jacobs.....Not that anybody normal would actually cop something like this...I just thought it was funny...
more info @ WWD
J.A.M.E.S dropped this one @ midnight...First thought....a little different..What was he talking about?...But I couldn't do it justice...I'll let Mr. Watts do the talking...
'this self-produced song tells the story of a superhero/secret agent type who's out to rid the world of all evildoing and malice. However, the track only explains the early part of his day, and the beginning of his mission, as I may choose to elaborate further on his adventures in the near future.
While a little bit of a departure from how I usually get down, I'm trying to stretch my boundaries a bit; hope you enjoy it! Any and all feedback on this one is definitely appreciated.'
What he said.
J.A.M.E.S Watts - A Better Tomorrow
Premo on his relationship with Jigga, Nas, and Weezy...Gotta say this was enlightening. You wanna know why Nas had a streak of wack records after Illmatic...no Premo behind the boards..Nas actually turned down records from Premier?? WOW!
Great idea from Prem..If Nas would just bring them all back..Imagine another Nas record with Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock, and Q-tip (Maybe add Raphael Saddiq...just a suggestion)? A man can dream can't he?

I saw Exile Saturday night @ Boombox with DJ Day and it was one of the best sets I've seen in a while with Exile doing some amazing stuff on the MPC...when I saw this I had to post it...Exile's album 'Radio' Jan 20...

One of my favorite blogs on the net Meaning of Dope, back from a short hiatus, blesses us with this classic footage of Biggie performing 'Unbelieveable' w/ Puff from 1994...MAN!...
The week seemed like it was gonna be a little slow, but turned out pretty damn good!
I love it when lyricists make remixes like this...jumping on tracks that are not expected...Shawn Chrystopher jumping on The Ting Tings hit isnt as suprising...good stuff though...from my inbox this morning...
The Ting Tings - Thats Not My Name remix ft. Shawn Chrystopher
you want to take advantage of that one?^
One of my favorite brands Neighborhood JP is having a sale and Boundless NY is @ 50% off!
Like I said the recession has hit retail hard...everyone is having a sale..I'm surprised we're not hearing about some of these brands and shops going out of business...
