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.

New Pumas, T-Pain, Barker and Am out soon!

28 09 2008

Check out these new “Sketch” styled Puma’s you might have seen floating around.

Secondly, I read on an interview that after Thr33 Rings comes out T-Pain wants to make a rock/country album with no vocoder. He’s pretty good creatively but I can’t see him without the vocoder unless he’s going to use some other form of studio magic on his live vocals.

Well we all know about the plane crash a week ago that killed four people and burnt Dj AM and Travis. Dj AM was reported to have burns to the face and has just been released from hospital whilst Travis Barker has another week or two until he is alowed out. I wonder if anyone had to get skin grafts, that shit is painful, also did the fire mess up any of Barkers tattoos? Source: DJ AM RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL

Some cool djing shit I picked up:

Currently, I’m listening to The Games album L.A.X, it’s ok but I think Doctor’s Advocate had more bangers although the name dropping was even more obnoxious, especially that track with Busta where he is crying over Dre. That shit sounds semi homosexual. I aint hating though, I don’t mind The Game.





I’M BACK!

22 09 2008

Well I was away last weekend so I have some news to catch up on don’t I? However, its not good news…

Firstly last Friday Dj AM and Travis Barker were critically injured on a plane crash and although they are alive and ok they have suffered some burns, travis from the waist down and DJ AM to the face. The plane crew suffered four casualties also.

Look at the condition the plane was in after it drifted off the run way:

Just goes to show it can happen to anyone.

“In what should have been a happy time in Travis Barker’s assisant’s life, turned out to be a devastating tragedy.  Chris Baker was about to become a father once again and wanted to rush home to witness his baby’s birth, but sadly, he will never meet his new child, nor will his child meet him.

Chris was one of the four people killed in the plane crash late Friday night, that also saw rocker Travis Barker and DJ AM severly burned.

Baker told everyone that his pregnant wife was going into labor, and he wanted to be by her side.  Travis, who apparently doesn’t normally fly on private jets, decided to make an exception, so his assistant could make it in time to witness his child’s birth”  (Source- babble.com)

Travis has been doing alot of hiphop collabs at the moment including this video I posted a few weeks ago:





DJ AM scratching with Travis Barker

8 09 2008

Seems like all I’m doing is posting clips at the moment, this is a dope video with Dj AM scratching over beats and travis barker jamming along. Check it out:

Dj AM ft Travis Barker

50 cent is claiming he is going to reinvent hiphop on his latest album “Before I self destruct”, hey 50 do you mean reinvent like when you and Kayne faced off for album sales and that is the reason he bet you? The same reason Terminate on Sight didn’t sell alot of records also. I’ll have to wait and see before I believe all this talk personally, plus he hasn’t put anything out that interests me in…………. forever?

50 Talks new album

Lil Wayne tore it up at the VMA’s last night (except when T-Pain came out and was half heartedly lip syncing ‘got money’, dudes a good songwriter but he looked rubbish live). Now apparently Weezy is in trouble after police released him on 70,000 bail a few months ago after finding a concealed weapon and drugs on his tour bus.

Speaking of T-Pain…..

Can\’t believe it remix
