So I guess Dallas Austin has been in the studio experimenting on his own music and decided to produce these two low budget..extremely low budget..clips to support them..
You can see 'Exasperated' on the other side...
So I saw this when it first started hitting blogs, I think it was a couple weeks ago..So I was gonna post it and completely forgot about it.. Than I saw it on Va$htie's and this morning on Mick Boogie's and now I am posting it finally.. So here.. I may not always be first, but you can definitely depend on me to be 10th or 11th..lol..
Not really into the 'Teen loving' thing, but I like this video and its funny how you can see people shaking when they get the close ups... ?
You can watch the video to one of my favorite tracks of last year ..'Rich Girls'.. on the other side.. Really.. I just want an excuse to post that video...

Nice work from the kid....dropped this one in my box yesterday...The first one I've seen to go over this beat...
Quest - 'Post My Shit'
No opinion really...I would say the other version was pretty wack...This one is coo...The track far out shines the video..
You can see the 'I didn't approve of this....let me make it the U.K. version' of the Video on the other side..
The artistic community seems to be gravitating to this story of one of its own...This time its Shep Fairey & B+ with a poster design which you can grab here Feb 20th... The poster will be a limited run of 400....All proceeds go to Ma Dukes...

Every Charles Hamilton Ex-Girlfriend's Worse Nightmare

I was away for a minute there and I have to go again, but I love this video...The song I don't know... I love this video
Why does this guy always look depressed on Mag Covers??
Details Mag normally bores the sh__ out of me...
Nice read..Kanye never dissappoints on the quote side...
"Put this in the magazine: There's nothing more to be said about music. I'm the fucking end-all, be-all of music. I know what I'm doing. I did 808s in three weeks. I got it. It's on cruise control. . . . Man, we talked about music for God knows how long!" he yells. "Now let's talk about how my fucking sweater didn't come back right from Korea. That's what's interesting me."
"One of the problems with being a bubbling source of creativity—it's like I'm bubbling in a laboratory, and if you don't put a cap on it, at one point it will, like, break the glass. If I can hone that . . . then I have, like, nuclear power, like a superhero, like Cyclops when he puts his glasses on."
"The big payback," he calls it. "I work with different designers and they'll see me coming, saying 'I wanna do this line,' and they're like, 'Cool, give me $150,000 for two weeks' work'! It's like, 'This dude is so eager to get in—he's a millionaire who doesn't know his ass from his face, and we're gonna charge him up the fucking ass for a sketch, for an idea, for a sample.' Every time I did a sample line—it was over a quarter-million."
Of course me I zero in on the sex quote..' "People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age," he says. "Look at the drive that people have to get sex—to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 A.M., the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic . . '..agreed..read 'Think and Grow Rich' Chapter 10..lol...

As promised earlier... Track One off their highly anticipated Interscope release The 'F.A.T' lp. It was Mark Ronson playing it during his podcast which I posted earlier that sparked me into looking for it again...And I generally find what I'm looking for.. Anyway everybody loves watching them perform this track and I can't help but join when they do 'The Mayor'....This is kind of a rough version...when I get my hands on a CDQ I'll be passing that on, but for now enjoy!!
Pacific Division - Mayor
In the Past: Pacific Division - Mayor Live @ Highline Ballroom
'I was valedictorian cause I was probably the best cheater there ever was'...Me 2nd..
Go pickup Troubadour Feb 24th!!! I love this right here. I posted his live set of this song for Hip Hop Official. Hes in his own lane...Theres nothing like this anywhere in modern music. I think K'NAAN is one of those artists whose under appreciated while they're around and than later on down the line we come to appreciate what they bring. I hope he really gets props for what hes doing out here. And now we have the official leak with Mos Def on it? Gotta download that.
K'naan - America ft. Mos Def & Chali2na
Previous >>> HHO: KNAAN - America Live
I really like this track... My post on it got DCMA pulled cause I guess Shawn hasn't managed to get clearances for this track from Sam Sparro's people. Shawn did this performance @ UCLA for the Fashion Resurgance show (Damn I gotta keep up with events at my alma mater...I had no idea about this)
thanks to 2 dope for the clip..

This was the record produced by Cool and Dre I posted a while back that Wale's Manager(Wale) hit me up on AIM and asked me to remove. Well I guess its the first single off the new LP...
Like every week I have a lot of music for you to listen to.... These of course are my picks for the week.. And as usual all the tracks on this playlist are available on this blog..
except Wale's - Nightlife which I so slept on...
Not that big on book launches... This one might be coo to check out though.
I love this podcast and Mark always gets his hands on those songs that everybody wants...So I've been listening to this this morning (thanks to Ronson's myspace blog) and I notice that hes playing some of my favorite records.. Trackademick's 'Topsidin'(which is on that playlist over there--->), Wale's Nightlife(which I never posted..but will be apart of New Music Monday) and he has Pacific Division's 'Mayor', which nobody seems to have and I just added to my hard drive (like a few minutes ago...will post a little later). So I started playing it and as usual Mark Ronson brings his funny commentary in his British accent and some great exclusive music(Wale, Adele[f__-ing Amazing voice on that demo]+more)...So definitely give that a listen..

Karmaloop TV from the Shepard Fairey experiment party in Boston.... the night he got arrested. The guy doesn't have to do that hes got enough money...Lesson = Hes commited to his art... I'm inspired.
haha.. While I was getting the link to his blog for my last post I noticed he posted a new mixtape....
Downloading it myself right now... But I'm listening to this Bjork on his page...This guy is great..
My Brain is Alive Mixtape
you can check out his post as usual he has a lot to say..
Update: After listening to this tape... Bananas! Download this tape really...!
I thought this conversation was very stimulating. One thing thats great about hip-hop is we have discussions like this. Charles Hamilton is an extremely inquisitive dude don't believe me check out his blog. I also gotta say I love how this was shot too..
Illdoctrine.com talks to Elizabeth Mendez Berry, who wrote a vibe article on Big Pun's(r.i.p) abuse of his wife, on the stunning levels of domestic violence in the hip-hop world and the general populace. The statistics and subject matter are not new to me...but I think with the whole Rhianna Chris Brown thing becoming as crazy as it has become I thought this was worth a post. I don't agree with her suggestion though that Rhianna was taking major flack after this whole incident...I haven't seen that.. and I think that female victimization in every dispute is a problem too.
I will say this... Its never...never....never...ok for a guy to hit a woman... never. Self defense?...Never! ..and don't get on my case..I'm talking about striking or in Chris Brown's case biting a woman(wtf was that??).
