HIP HOP RAP UP

12 10 2008

Slick Rick was honored recently at the VH1 awards with this performance by rappers such as Busta Rhymes, Pharrell, Eve, etc but the best part in my [totally unbiased ;)] opinion was Ghostface performing La Di Da Di whilst Biz Markie beatboxed. Watch it below:

New kayne anyone? It’s either gunna be a really good album or really wack. My hopes aren’t particularly high.

New Kayne West: Heartless snippet

Below is an interview with Notorious BIG’s Mom on the set of the Notorious movie. This movie is gunna be legit for real, all the family is involved. Biggies son is in the video also.

Finally here is some info on Travis Barkers condition:

US Weekly magazine talks to Travis Barker after his tragic plane crash with DJ AM and others who died.

“I am doing the best I possibly can be. I’m so anxious to get out of here. I’ve just been in surgery after surgery. I have third degree burns basically from my feet up to my waist and both hands. One of my hands was second degree burns and one third degree burns. I’m trying to have a quick recovery and play the drums again and be able to hold my kids again.”

“I hate planes. My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash. I sit here and I read books and watch TV. I think if this surgery went well, I’ll be here at most two weeks.”

Apparently DJ AM is now home also.

For anyone who is curious about my blog and where my taste lies here is my list of the best rappers in the game right now/ever according to my opinion.

1) Notorious BIG: Flow, Swagger etc. Every single track Mr Smalls appeared on was hot, I haven’t heard a single verse from him that isn’t fire.

2) Wu Tang: The best rap group ever, every single member is extremely talented. Personal favorites at the moment being GZA, RZA, Ghost and Rae.

3) U.G.K: Underrated as fuck and they represent everything that is good from the south. Swagger, Longevity these guys had it.

4) Jay Z: Not really a total favorite or anything as far as music goes but as far as staying relevant and running the game for over a decade jigga definitely deserves a spot. Don’t forget without Jigga you don’t have Kayne either.

5) Busta: Busta has made some classics in his time and he’s one of the most likable rappers at the moment.





Slick Rick, O.J, Flea unit.

9 10 2008

That’s Slick Rick at the VH1 Hip hop honors.

You know I hate 50 Cent but you might be interested in hearing his new track, its the usual fare. You know what I mean, boring flow, boring voice, medicore beats, usual subject etc:

O.J Probably did do it the first time.

I haven’t actually seen this on the internet a whole lot but 61 year old O.J Simpson has just been sentenced to life in prison on 12 counts of robbery, weapons and kidnapping-related charges. Karma?

Back!

7 10 2008

What an epic week, happy 21st to myself. I’m pretty run down and I burst a blood vessel in my eye spewing, no shit.

Here is the new Kayne video, everyone is hating on it because it is different and they want to see 50 cent with his shirt off instead. As long as Kayne keeps his ego on hold I don’t mind him, he does some good stuff. This video is based on American Psycho apparently.

This isn’t really news because everyone knows Yung Berg is a bitch, he is ruining his own career by trying to be someone who he isn’t (a man). Apparently he stepped to Maino in a club and instead of proclaiming “Hi hater” Maino straight slapped Berg in the face. .. Here’s an interview:

Someone else who is getting caught the fuck out pretending to be somebody who he isn’t : Officer Rick Ross, he’s finally admitting the truth about his correctional officer past in a recent interview. Secondly what the hell is this album cover? hahaha

Tidbits

Weezy is blogging for ESPN as we all know and he now has an ESPN tattoo on his arm, someone is going to be in laser surgery in a few years time.

Camron’s comeback album has been pushed back till next year.





My opinions are always right

30 09 2008

The notorious BIG MOVIE is coming, Fox pictures wants to know what you think. This movie could actually maybe beat the odds and turn out good, the chick they have acting as Faith Evans looks exactly the same.

Click here for details: Vote for the notorious movie promotion poster

Travis Barker has been released from hospital, I didn’t realize him and DJ Am were THE ONLY survivors!

Sean Kingston tried to fed-ex 500,000 worth of Jewlery and apparently it all got jacked. Really though who would put that much cash money in a box and expect it to be delivered safely? And secondly how does Sean even have $500,000? Dumbass

New albums to be excited about for the end of 2008? Detox, Thr33 Rings, Kayne, 50 cent,and lastly Blueprint 3.Jockin\’ Jayz~!

He’s also making Swagger like us part 2 featuring Young Jeezy and Andre “3000”.

When Funkmaster Flex spoke about R Kelly I agreed with him fully, but this, this is blatantly false.

Funkmaster Flex claims in this video that the most overated rapper he has ever experienced in his career is Method man. I find it ironic that during the video he speaks about 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and Soulja Boy, this dude has got to be joking calling out Meth like that.

“I’ve been dying to speak about a rapper that’s been overrated…

AllHipHop.com: Who’s that?

Flex: Method Man is the most overrated rapper I’ve experienced in my career.”

Fuck ya!





Feelin lazy

27 09 2008

Feeling a bit lazy today, I wanna do another lyrical appreciation write up soon but for now just some interesting stuff… all the news at the moment is about 50 cent and Kayne and I really need a break from them.

The Wu Tang shoe

Wanna get your hands on a pair of these seemingly average Wu Tang kicks? Well think again, they are next to impossible to find and apparently there is a store in NY selling them for 7,500 US. That is alot of cash, you could probably buy one of their album plaques for the same price.

Dr Dre: DETOX

Apparently Detox is going to drop around December with a first single release possibly next month, as the album being delayed for like four years I find this kinda hard to believe. I think until I hear an official release date I won’t say a thing. Also do you think Dr Dre can stay relevant in modern hip hop?  Everyone knows the rap game is constantly changing and if pop rappers like Nelly can’t stay on track do you think Dre can still go platinum and be taken seriously after a seven year hiatus since his last Chronic album? I don’t know personally. He’s also using live instrumentation on the album, same as Rza’s production style.

DETOX IS COMIN? LINK

Anyway here is some classic 1992 Dre:

Michael Jordan recently spoke honestly about the comparisons between him and Kobe,  Jordan said that in his prime that there would be absolutely no competition. You know what? I agree 100%, Jordan is the greatest alive no doubt, he is a legend and even as a product the Jordan brand is still going strong. I remember when I saw Space Jam as a kid, it was my favourite movie ever and MJ was my hero.  One of the greatest, if not the greatest sports star of all time.

Watch the video, its from this year and you can see even at the age of 45 he can consistently shoot and even dunk. Cool to see him teaching some kids as well.

Link!!!!!

And that’s it for now.





hmmm..

26 09 2008

In case you didn’t know already, Kayne has recently changed his album date to November, I wonder how 50 cent is going to sell records now that he can’t try compete with Kayne and gain publicity for a shitty album again?

He only sells through Beef after all.

Oasis and both those Gallagher brothers are notorious for their douche behavior. Here is their diss song for Jay-Z because they are mad he played at Glastonbury and the crowd loved it.  Source: Allhiphop.com

I hope he comes back and laughs at this.

VH1 Recent did a top 100 greatest rap songs ever list and its no suprise that they have the worst opinions ever:

01 Public Enemy / “Fight The Power”
02 Sugarhill Gang / “Rapper’s Delight”
03 Dr. Dre / “Nuthin But A ‘G’ Thang”
04 Run-DMC ft/ Aerosmith/ “Walk This Way”  <No
05 Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five / “The Message”
06 N.W.A. / “Straight Outta Compton”
07 Notorious B.I.G. / “Juicy”  <Gimme the loot shoulda been here in my opinion
08 Snoop Doggy Dogg / “Gin and Juice”
09 Salt-N-Pepa / “Push It ”  <No no no way
10 Kurtis Blow / “The Breaks”
11 Jay-Z / “Hard Knock Life”
12 L.L. Cool J / “I Can’t Live Without My Radio” < LL is in this list but Outkast isn’t?
13 Wu-Tang Clan / “C.R.E.A.M.”
14 Tupac / “I Get Around ”
15 Eminem / “Stan ”
16 Missy Elliott / “Get Ur Freak On”  <Definitely not her best song and def not deserving top 30 even.
17 Sir Mix-A-Lot / “Baby Got Back”
18 50 Cent / “In Da Club”  <WHAT THE FUCK
19 Ice T / “Colors”
20 Kanye West ft/ Jamie Foxx / “Gold Digger” Basicially worst list ever.

Lil Wayne was placed above Slick Rick as well, hasn’t anyone there heard Art of Storytellin or Liquid Swords?

On a lighter note:

Yes, that is Ludacris in high school, I have like a million of these.

What about Pharrell with the fade:

Hahahah!





Shoes and assorted news.

Eye candy from Sneakerfreaker:

News:

Firstly, Big Boi from Outkast has signed as a solo artist to T.I’s Grand Hustle label, looks like T.I is getting alot of business done before going away to jail for a year. Props to him, I wonder if his record is going to sell anywhere near as many units as Lil Weezy’s?

Kayne with some help from his friend Rhymefest is developing his very own puppet styled T.V show with the Creators of “Crank Yankers”, it’s going to be named “Alligator Boots”.

Source: Kayne developing comedy show.

Mariah Carey has a new movie called “Push” coming out, will it flop? Probably. Her role is as a social worker, I find with her Diva attitude this may be a little hard to believe.

Source: Mariah staring in new movie.

Excited for the new Notorious BIG movie? I REALLY AM and it actually looks like it pretty good.

Check out the latest teaser: (Source: Whoohah.com)

DMX. No he is not in jail again, this time he has missed his court date because he has been hospitalized. Dude needs to calm down, lay off the drugs and focus on his new album/staying out of jail in my opinion.

Apparently because of all of the stress on his body they are fearing he could have a stroke.
