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.


Notorious B.I.G lyric appreciation.

13 08 2008

Every few days or so I’m going to post a video so we can appreciate the lyrics, So far we have heard- Raekwon Incarcerated Scarfaces and now it’s time for one of my fave BIG songs. For those who don’t know these two artists used to essentially hate each other, Method man/RZA were the only ones who prevented the two from a full scale beef.

Raekwon:”To top it all off, beefin’ with [Frank] White/pullin’ bleach out, tryna throw it in my eyesight”

Biggie responded to this line on “Kick in the Door” by saying “Fuck that, why try? Throw bleach in your eye”

Anyway here’s BIG- Nasty Boy (Party Boy remix is 1000000 times better but couldn’t find it)

He kills it on every line:

“Reach the gate, hungry just ate

Riffin, she got to be to work by eight

This must mean she ain’t tryin to wait

Conversate, sex on the first date I state

“You know what you do to me”

She starts, “Well but I don’t usually”

then I, whipped it out, rubber no doubt

Step out, show me what you all about.

I remember we, went to Tennessee

Then we came home, mad messages was on my phone

Bitch named Symone

Screamin, she feenin, for the semen

Me bein, the man that I am

Took it to her condo, pronto

Half indian, called her Tonto

No one can rhyme like Biggie.
