First Dr. Dre Single from Detox: Kush

Fire. Can be found here:

Lloyd Banks ft. Eminem - Where I'm At

Bonus track from Lloyd Banks' The Hunger for More 2. This ain't no Beamer Benz or Bentley but it's one of the standout tracks from the album. A driving beat with Em's flow and a side of Lloyd Banks (who I'm not a huge fan of but he's growing on me) - dope dope dope.

Garbage Happenings in Fantasy World

Here you can see this week's fantasy football results: my 150 to his 60. Now, thanks to him, the biggest shit-talker of the group will be 1 step closer to winning it all (he's claimed he is going to win from the beginning). Unreal.

This is one of those "who cares" posts that doesn't really have any effect on those who are reading it. Just go with it...

Monday Throwback: The Pharcyde - Passin Me By

Pandora reminded me of this gem. Gotta love the Jimi sample, it would be cool if more hip hop tracks utilized his work.

Theme Song of the Week: Kanye West - Dark Fantasy

Must have listened to this song 5 times yesterday. Ask Tommy Stirling to sing the chorus to you some time - it's truly a magical experience. Good luck out west BH

In Honor of Friday Night: Nero - Innocence

Happy Thanksgiving. Posting one of Nero's biggest tracks (Diplo put this in his set at Electric Zoo this summer) before I go check them out at Webster Hall Friday. Hey Brian, at least you're leaving the East Coast in style.

Monday Throwback Presented by Davis: Big L - Put It On

Davis says: "I smash mics like cornbread, you can't kill me I was born dead"

Well said Big L, well said.

Awesome Stop-Motion Graffiti with a Dope Soundtrack

I can appreciate some good graffiti. Granted I can't create any for shit, but this is worth a look. Big fan of the music behind it as well. Stop-motion always baffles me...

New Deadmau5 : Sofi Needs a Ladder

Love the beat, not crazy about the vocals. Posted this up here to get your thoughts. I miss the days of "Strobe," "Brazil," "Alone with You"

Dai Mahou Touge - Vegetable Suicide

I am just having a field day with hilariously bad videos

'The Situation' and Bristol Palin Talk Sex

Bristol Palin is obviously the poster child for abstinence.

Goodbye Four Loko :(

Thanks to Brian for the link. It's a sad day in alcoholism. But, now we have these t-shirts:

This will be one of the biggest weekends in shit show history - people stocking up and having four loko parties. Oh baby.

The sample for Today's Monday Throwback: Ronnie Laws - Just As You Are (1981)

Davis shot this over to me as well. Obviously a corny song on its own but definitely makes for a good sample with "Make or Take" by Nine. It's always been really interesting to me to hear what songs evolved from what and used which samples.

Monday Throwback Presented by Davis: Nine ft. Smooth Da Hustler - Make Or Take

Davis shot this gem over to me last week but I had already posted the Roots' "What They Do." In proper fashion, here is "Make or Take" by Nine. I gotta say my ignorant ass hasn't really heard much Nine so I appreciate what Davis is trying to do here: school me in real hip hop. Check back every Monday for a new throwback jam.

Monday Throwback: The Roots - What They Do

One of my all time Roots favorites, and maybe one of my favorite hip hop songs of all time. This is true hip hop. Sit back, light up a spliff, and enjoy.

Pendulum - The Island - Part 2 (Dusk) - ORIGINAL!!!!!!

Holy fuck.

Listening to Rap for the First Time. With A Book Critic

Really interesting article. It's so mesmerizing how you can compare the same song by reading its lyrics on paper and by listening to it with the beat, the flow, and the different personalities applied to it. I found the insight on Lil Wayne's Dr. Carter to be the most interesting. As the author states, "The personality in that voice, just in that little back and forth with the "nurse" in the intro at the start of the song. It's something hard to quantify — but it's the same thing that makes you love and trust a performer onstage."

I never really thought of this song as a dialogue between "doctor" and nurse" but the author has a great point. The lyrics are definitely creative on paper, but once you add the audio the listener is actually picturing a hospital-esque scene.

Eminem, Mos Def, Black Thought & DJ Premier - Cypher 3 (Live 2009 BET Hi...

Three of my favorite rappers in the game (Black Thought is dope but I can't mention him without mentioning one of my favorite bands, The Roots) spittin crazy freestyle flow to a DJ Premier beat. Mos Def takes the cake for flow but I gotta hand it to Eminem for most knockout punches.

Monday Throwback, presented by Davis: Gravediggaz - 1-800 Suicide

A new segment, being called your Monday Throwback, is being brought to you by my good friend Davis. This kid has his head deep into the underground hip hop scene and will be bringing you a new throwback each and every Monday. I'm trying to get him to contribute more than just a YouTube clip, so stay tuned for more.

He said he was calling this number to cure his Halloween hangover. I believe it.

Theme Song of the Week: Erol Alkan & Boys Noize - Lemonade (Original Mix)

Saw Boys Noize & Rusko @ Webster Hall in NYC this past weekend. Boys Noize killed it and the place went nuts when this came on. This should lighten your Monday mood.
