So the guys from N.E.R.D have a new song and it features everyones favorite Alt chick of the moment Santigold. The guys revealed the song to the American audience @ MTV's Spring Break 09 and posted about it via their BBC blog without anouncing the name...well today we have a name for the track its called 'Popcorn' and if your anything close to as big of an N.E.R.D fan as I am than your probably hoping that this is a sign of a new album in the works?....No word yet...Above is a clip that popped up on youtube of the guys performing the song in Singapore last week without the help of one Santigold.
Being the complete nerd I am heres a rip of the performance for your listening pleasure...Record is DOOOOPE..even if the audio sucks!
N.E.R.D - Popcorn ft. Santigold (Live Rip)

So I hade made a post about Diplo working with Kelis not to long ago and since these are 2 of my favorite artists in music I was obviously all over it.... So diplo had sent these tracks to the pregnant Kelis and I'm assuming these are going to be off an upcoming album and if they're any indication of what a new Kelis record might be like I think its gonna be pretty damn good. These tracks are mad low quality snippets and they sound like they were just recorded from her session and are not snippets of the actual mastered recording, but at the end of the day just hearing this will do for now...so.....
Kelis - Feel Alive (Snippet) prod. Diplo
Kelis - Love Cherry (Snippet) prod. Diplo <---WOOOOW! @ approx :24 in..
Still miss her Neptunes days but...

So I posted Adam getting on the PBJ 'Nothing To Worry About' Remix...Now I have a track with some of Europe's finest...Kano & Lazee having been ripping up the UK for a minute.. And if you pay attention to this blog you know Adam is probably the brightest star in European Hip-hop(On the verge of a deal with Interscope!)...Well the track is a remix of Kano's track 'Hustler' seen above..
Kano - Hustler (Rmx) ft. Adam Tensta ft. Lazee
[My Best Friend is My Grind]
Quest is talented. Does some work replacing Rick Ross on his own track...Nothing against Ricky Ross....I like this version better.
Quest - Maybach Music 2(ft. T-pain)
Word to Quest for shooting me this and staying on his grind...
Ok..I actually like this Ash Roth record a little...Waiting to see what Asher comes up with..
Download: Asher Roth - Lark On My Go Kart
Well just got home running through my inbox I stumble on this nice remix...
I love this Peter Bjorn & John record...Which I posted a while back...Its only magnified by a remix featuring Adam Tensta, U-N-I, & The 87 Stickup Kids....They all do their thing on this one...
PBJ - Nothing To Worry About (Troublemakerz Remix) ft. Adam Tensta, U-N-I, & The 87 Stickupkids
Thanks to the Infokid from 87 Stickup kids for shooting that my way..
Message of the day = 'Left turns make artists interesting..even if the product isnt that great'
Is House/Drum & Bass/electro the future of Hip-hop?... probably not, but it sure does make some of these guys more interesting. This Diddy meets electro/house/dance/drumandbass record has been in the works and talked about for I don't know how many years..I'm somewhat interested..
Wanna know what a Felix da Housecat and Diddy collab sounds like...?
Diddy X Felix da housecat - Jack U
Bonus: Diddy & Felix - Jack U(MSTRKRFT edit)
On another note Felix is also another great Twitter follow..
Biggest Duh of the century...
"It might [blog for] two hours in a day, it might be fifteen minutes in a day. I have two people that I hired and I tell them exactly what I want — it's just like how a designer would work. I tell them, you know, Surface magazine, Wallpaper, Architectural Digest, Hypebeast, Bossip — go to these different blogs and keep on pulling information. And then they send it to me, and I get like 80 e-mails, and I have to check and go through them. And sometimes I'll have my own stuff where I'll just be in a cool place, like if I had my camera right now, I'd like photograph this stuff and go home and be really excited to blog it. You know, cause I'm in cool places all the time. So it's a great outlet, and I'm glad so many people are reacting to it. And it's another opportunity to present design and my opinion of the world and what I think is cool."
Vulture Exclusive: Kanye Explains How His Blog Works
I'm busy, but not as busy as Kanye and somehow he was supposed to be able to manage making blog posts all day? *picture me shocked*
Snoop dropped this one via his Twitter...Snoop & Dupstep really? I guess I shouldn't be shocked...Snoop is never scared t take a left turn which keeps him interesting...To be honest the track itself is not that great to me, but I think if he works on it Snoop is the type of Artist who could score a hit off dubstep....The record was produced by UK Drum & Bass kings Chase & Status..
Snoop - Snoop Dogg Millionaire
Thanks to Semtex and Thatrealish for the rip....
Ahead of his time. 'I should be a punk rocker...'
BTW..is this guy wearing a pair of handcuffs on his pants? lmao...

Since Cudi's 'retiring' ...Buggin Out would be the ironic cover..
XXL gives a behind the scenes look @ Sonic's next clip for 'Loser' off his 'Pink Laval Lamp' Mixtape....

Download >> Charles Hamilton - Loser
'SEAL. A familiar, worn-in piece. The SEAL crewneck sweatshirt has a vintage sportswear feel, constructed of a broken-in 360 gm cotton fleece, with a raglan cut, ribbed side-gussets, distressed treatment, and screenprinted graphic. '
Well if the original was not enough for you....Heres a sick remix by Good Life Mike!

Artist Spotlight and Massive (Unofficial) mixtape coming soon...As in like this week.
Thanks to the 2dopeboyz..
'We Put the A in Austin' mixtape is a collection of tracks from the A's brightest up and coming artists....To be honest most of these tracks are not new(like I had hoped) but anyway a good listen if your not familiar...I'm a big fan of forwardthinking artists in hip-hop and the ATL contributes more than its fair share to that cause...
Mick Boogie & The Pressplayshow.com Presents: We Put the A in Austin

Pretty much anytime I can hit up the Standard and score a drink and kick it for a minute this week..I'll be taking advantage..
Now I've always had an interest in art, but it was always more musical not so much visual arts. I've noticed that my interest level has grown over the years and I'm definitely more interested in learning about the 'Visual Arts' and different forms of Art in general...XLR8R Magazine recently created a free downloadable magazine and an accompanying website: VIS-ED.net, which I don't think you can call a 'retrospective' more like a look into the world of some current visual artists.. The magazine includes works and bios on several different contemporary visual artists each with a unique approach to the arts...
'I got a million dollars in the ___ing bank account what do you got B____?'
BTW...Crack is Wack.
More = SPIN
'Add this little bit to the "odd" column: Phoenix's recent confrontation with a heckler at a Miami gig has been downgraded from heated brawl to prolonged man-grip by a source who spoke to the New York Post: "It was a fake fight," the witness said. "Nobody threw a punch. They were just holding onto each other." '
This was just the one of the two Pharrell tracks on the upcoming Fast & Furious Soundtrack that didn't irritate the __i_ out of me...Its club ready as most Pharrell productions are....
Pitbull - You Slip She Grip ft. Pharrell & Tego Calderon
I'm getting more into suits and I'm rocking mostly Calvin Klein and Banana Republic recently(not just to work)...I've noticed I'm outgrowing streetwear for the most part...Calvin Klein never dissapoints and they deliver some more solid pieces for the 09....Kanye makes an appearance...
Shes nuts...Thats ok with me...'I'd love to work with Colonel Sanders'..Someone needs to release some new music...Another reason why I love the ATL(And I've never been there, but they have a great music scene out there)... Well your gonna get some more ATL on this blog since Mick Boogie's 'A in Austin' mixtape drops today..
Bonus: Donnis & Proton - Allstar off...'A in Austin' Mixtape..
