Music to my Ears ... George Bush getting booed!

Bush greeted with what was overwhelming boos over the cheers, last night throwing the first pitch at Washington Nationals game. He got that over with quickly! Thats the last time he'll present himself in front of a crowd that wasn't hand picked!

Honorable Mentions

Following on from our recent round up of mp3 heat I thought I would shine the light on some other mcs making noise in the underground. So if you had been caught up in the G-Unit, Rick Ross, Flo rida side of things. Take some time to give these artists a listen. (Click on any of the images to hear the artists music)

wale.jpg
Wale - Washington native, last release was a mixtape, collaborative effort with Mark Ronson. Has since gone on to record with Weezy and Bun B among others. Also featured on upcoming Roots album.

jay electronica

Jay Electronica - The bloggers champion. Signed to Erykah Badu's label, previously known for leaking tracks out onto obscure websites but soon to be coming out of hiding.

Blu amp Exile

Blu - Album with producer Exile considered to be one of the best of 2007. Just released a new effort with Ta'Raach called C.R.A.C. Knuckles. 

sick jacken

Sick Jacken - Member of Soul Assassins camp, last album produced entirely by Muggs. A few months old now but as latin hip-hop tends to get fronted on, alot. Though I would include him in the list. 

Slaine

Slaine - Boston mc, part of La Coka Nostra collective with Ill Bill. Released several mixtapes over the past couple years. Also copped a part in 'Gone Baby Gone' written and directed by Ben Affleck, but don't let that put you off because its not bad at all. 

Bar Exam II Coming Soon


nickelniatch

If you heard the first one, you know what to expect. Mainly Royce tearing down other peoples beats along with a few tracks. Heres a taster of whats to come, click on title below.

For your entertainment




Not much poppin today in the world of hip-hop so I thought I would direct you to a couple of websites I discovered whilst spending too much time of the internet. Firstly we have themeaningofdope.com, a site dedicated to all things 90's. Highlights include Buckshot performing at Jack the Rapper '94, a dodgy Alkaholiks Coast II Coast promo video, artciles from The Source pre Benzino and interview with The Alchemist pre Soul Assassins at his parents house in Beverly Hills.

Secondly check out muxtape.com, this site lets you create your own mixtape and email to your less enlightened friends and collegues who can listen to it online, up to 12 tracks at a time.

BEEF! BITCHES AND SOME HOMO SHIT!

First let me just tell you that Gangsta BITCH Remy Ma is awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of assault. She got done for shooting her friend who she suspected of stealing, Claiming it was an accident. LOL.
We know bout friendly fire out in Iraq but this one is taking the biscuit. Anyway she faces up to 25 years in prison.

remymahangingout261a7balo1.jpg
I do like this pic with the titie out. Classy. Nipple looking ok still as well.



Trina releases tune dissing Lil Wayne


Taking shots at the beast who she think she is? lol
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"
she was one of the "hoes he uses and discards"!


What else?

Oh yeah TI is going to take the plea bargain for his gun charges and that means hes going away for 12 months and has to do 1500 hours of community service. Maybe while he serves his bird this motherfucker can push some iron and bulk up cos DAMN! he looks malnourished .

Theres also some accusations and rumours floating around about Bow Wow being gay.
Personally i don't give a fuck but if it turns out to be true it would be pretty funny. Bow Wow's camp and some friend of his have come out denying it, but again who cares??!?!?!

WU-TANG! WU-TANG! WU-TANG! ...

News for those 25 and over.

cuban linx

Remember the days of solid album releases, def jam with a respectable roster and westwood on at 12-3am playing decent records. Seems like a distant memory. Well the closest you can get to those days may just be a night like this:

ARTIST: RAEKWON performing ONLY BUILT 4 CUBAN LINX

SPECIAL GUEST: GHOSTFACE KILLAH

VENUE: KOKO

DATES: MONDAY 19TH MAY 2008

TICKET PRICE: £16.00

VENUE ADDRESS: 1a Camden High Street NW1

VENUE TELEPHONE: 0870 432 5527

Lets hope they stick to the script, because as much as we love the Wu, no-one wants to pay to hear any Rae, post cuban linx album cuts.

In other news Redman & Method Man, also on tour together announced plans for 'How High 2' and a follow up to 'Blackout'.

Who the F is Mighty Joseph?

Mighty Joseph comprises of mc's Vast Aire from Harlem & Karnaige from Brooklyn. Their album 'Empire State' is out now featuring production from Madlib and J-Zone among others as well as appearances from Poison Pen and Murs. Let me say that after feeling slightly baffled and confused after just listening to the Rick Ross album I was extremely glad to stumble across something this good. If I was a lazy journalist I could label this as 'an underground gem with a street edge', (in fact it's so underground right now I cant even find a photo to post up) but as a mere blogger I'm just gonna say this shit is fire! 

Heres a couple of tracks to download so you get the idea:



Myspace page to preview rest of the album here

Next step, go here and cop it instead of buying "Trilla", you can thank me later. 


WHAT RAPPERS WILL DO FOR PUSSY

Gucci mane is a MUG


It's highly amusing when these so called G's and Playas get caught out being, well , how can i put it? Taken for mugs by a trick ass Hoe.
Now i know that hardly anyone gives a fuck about Gucci mane but its just funny how these people portray a persona then get caught put being a total waste.
Priceless !!

Poor JOE BUDDEN gets exposed for eating pussy being a pussy and so forth. if the allegations are true of course

NEWS- GOSSIP AND SHIT LIKE THAT

LOL - Scott Storch is selling his Yacht on Ebay for less than $1 million after he paid clse to $20 million. Is this white boy broke or what????!?!?!?!?


After very STRONG rumours that Def Jam bought 100,000 copies of the American gangster Album to help Jay -Z get his little number 1 record, the internet is now full of further rumours about the current number 1 album in America Trila by Rick Ross. It is claimed that def jam have again given their artist a little 100,000 help. Maybe Fat Joe needs a def jam deal to help him out.

The CARTER 3 s coming out soon, so it is speculated and this time no leaks, apparently!
drought_is_over.jpg
Also a new (official) mixtape is coming out first from the empire and will be the final installation of the popular series the drought is over called the drought is over 5 the grand closing. I will post this up as soon as its out there. but for now here is the first leaked tune from the mixtape called I download HERE




Timbaland caught out again

If your records get play on mtv and radio around the world, probably best to clear the samples to avoid embarrassment.





Heres some other Timbaland copyright infringement classics: 



Hottest month on record

A ton of records were released towards the tail end of March. Some of which were actually decent, heres a selection of some of the best.

Outkast

Outkast ft. Raekwon - Royal Flush (skew it on the bbq pt. II, fire)

Skyzoo - Art of storytellin' pt. 5 (new rhymes over beat from DJ Drama album)

Cl Smooth & Skyzoo - Perfect timing

Ghostface - The Wallabee Champ (new mixtape, more unreleased gems from Ghost)

Dj Nice & Joe Budden - Lost Sessions mixtape

Ali Vegas - Leader of the new school (new mixtape from NY young veteran Ali Vegas hosted by Statik Selektah)

The Roots - Get Busy (new track from upcoming album ft. Peedi Crakk)

Lupe Fiasco - Superstar remix (ft. T.I. and Young Jeezy, yeeeeeeaaahhhhh)

Sheek, Jim Jones, Jadakiss, Hell Rell, Styles P - DBlock/Dipset (had to finish the list with some hood shit, because you love it)

Now, if only someone could release a decent retail album, but then again if no-ones gonna buy it, why bother?

RUMOURS, NEWS AND SETTING RECORDS STRAIGHT!

Ok yesterday we posted some rumours and these were slightly wrong. This is why we call them rumours! Anyway we good people so we setting the records straight.
SO

The Game has been released from prison after 8 days served, its official!!!!! After serving only 8 days of a 60 day sentence he was released by his correctional facility.

Also Papoose has squashed the rumour that he and Remy Ma are engaged. "we just friends"
he said.


News
Juelz Santana has been stopped by police and caught with some bullets and i think some drugs (weed)
I'm gonna keep you posted on this one.

More free vibes











Still looking for part 3 of the halftime show 10th anniversary that wasn't broadcast. Wanna hear Ill Bill, Masta Ace and Craig G rhyme over new beats from Marco Polo and Premier. Well, we got the link right (here).

Bashy - The Never Ending Story zzzzz

For anyone living in a hobbit hole for the past year - Bashy's track Black boys is starting to piss me off, I have had a dozen or so emails this week alone to my day job's inbox. To make matters worse peeps are not bcc'ing so every mug and his mother that was on the list (what does that make me?) has now added me to their wacemailout - USE THE FUCKING BCC U DICK HEADS!

Anyway, we liked the original, really liked it, repped it, pushed it and played it but then the Bashy squad got excited and it all got a bit annoying.. think mozzie's on holiday, a dose of syphilis or Jeremy Beadle (R.I.P) as your cell mate.

If it wasn't enough that for the past 6 months Bashy Brigade has bombarded us with 'Black Boy' video after 'Black Boy' video, an avalanche of shit version tracks, cynical guest appearances, propaganda, manufactured rumours and a mountain of other yawnworthy content. They have now decided that we be subjected to a DVD containing ... you guessed it: The same tracks, videos and outtakes that we have endured, day after day for so long.

They have even found the time to include interviews with every has-been rapper, Z list radio DJ, witless junior A&R and unknown 'Urban Celeb', the tea lady, dustman and local bus driver, no sorry that's Bashy, on the DVD.

Thanks Bash, no really, thanks, Can't wait 4 that.

Black Boys the DVD is out now, please go buy a million so he can move the fuck on..

Summary of The Wire - NBA style

imgres.jpg imgres.jpg


If you like the NBA and The Wire, courtesy of Slam online, this article is just for you. If you don't. Then, well I guess you shit out!


article (here)


Prodigy got things on his mind


imgres.jpg


And he wants you to hear them. On his latest blog he gives some of his opinions about some of your favorite rappers. Do you agree, do you care?

T.I. got some shit up his sleeve but i really prefer
YOUNG JEEZY jeezy just got a more unique and futuristic flow to me ,,the ears need something new, not the same ol' shit...jeezy got that


SNOOP DOG forever wit his simple dont give a fuck gang bang flow..i love it. reminds me of old style new york rap

JADA KISS & STYLES P always loved how they do they shit,,could do with sheek tho, he one of the worst ever to me

JUELZ SANTANA got the best to offer out the whole dipset, his voice is not anoying like the rest. the rest you can tell just rap cause they man's rap. cam used to spit, now i dont know what happened. and he did too much sneaky back stab shit

people say "how you gonna like pac when he dissed you?" but i dont make my decisions off of what people say, i move on my own instincts. dont care if pac said shit bout my sickle cell, i still like 2pac regardless. so whoever disagrees, so what

Snoop takes it back (Party Time!)










Way back! If you thought sensual seduction was a departure from the usual Snoop track, wait till you hear this one. He's come along way since Deep Cover.

Ayo Technology (the deleted version)

Maybe they could put this on the next mixtape, get some of that easy listening paper!

This is how you warm up to bang in 50 points at the garden


Oh, and this would be how you end the first half of a game (below)


In memory of ...

Tomorrow, March 9th marks 11 years of Biggie's passing. Think how many rappers since then have tried to copy his format of making both r&b and hardcore tracks, gaining pop appeal but not losing credibility in this process. Well how ever many, they have never quite managed to do it like Big.



first solo single, pre Bad Boy. 'Party and Bullshit'



Total ft. Biggie 'Can't you see'



Junior M.A.F.I.A. 'Get Money'



Biggie and 2Pac together as friends in the early days.

All good things must come to an end


We're talking about The Wire. Calling it good doesn't quite do it justice. A statement like "the greatest tv show of all time" may seem grand but I'm willing to bet anyone who's watched all 5 seasons would tell you this. As much as I wanted to see the last episode I didn't want it to come round because now it's over. A perfect time to watch it all over again. For UK residents, season 3 is running on FX, mondays at 10pm. Season 4 is out on DVD on monday. Invest now, don't let a piece of genius like this pass you by.

NEW MUSIC AND NEWS ROUND

NEWS AND GOSSIP

Shaun Wright_phillips is a WACE MAN!
39E70D57-E296-EE1E-1726C0D885E60196.jpg
Rumour has it that last week while Alicia Keys was in London to do a gig and also promote the launch of BET in the UK. At the gig in cafe de Paris the lil Chelsea second string midget tried to whoo her with some crystal and a little note inviting her to go watch him at Chelsea, which he sent to her through a waitress at the club. The singer must have noticed he looks about 12 not too mention the fact he's fucking ugly and declined, so lil Shaun went home alone. Wace man!

The Definition of LOL



Whatever you may feel about the Dipset, and whether you find grown men wearing scarfs on their head funny or not. You gotta laugh at the sight of Jim Jones in shock as he thought he was about to fall off the roof whilst filming his latest video (i ain't goin out like a sucka!). Thanks to the good people at Complex magazine, here it is for your hilarity.

Fat Joe's response to papoose (yawn)





As quoted from The Wire "a lie is not a side of the story, it's just a lie"

Fat Joe's angle on things (here)
Apparently he didn't like Pap laughing at 50's jokes about him, so sensitive for a big guy!
Papooses version (here)

Somewhere out there the is truth but does anyone care, sadly I think they do.



Tuesday, 4 March 2008

Spot the Difference






Did Papoose hit Fat Joe? Was he set up by Cassidy? Exclusive behind the scenes footage but no actual video of the alleged punches. Did you see 50's expression before it went down, it was as if he knew what was about to unfold. Hip-Hop appears to be mirroring the traveling circus of the WWE with on camera arguments and back and forth verbal sparring. The only question is, is it real? Has 50 taken on the mantle of Vince Mcmahon or is hip-hop now just falling in line with the mainstream medias fascination of celebrity culture. Many websites and blogs these days seem to be more of a hip-hop version of E! news than anything else. Music is now a minor element compared to gossip and alleged 'beef".

THE GOOD OLD DAYS (WU TANG UP IN THIS BITCH) BACK TO 97

HERES A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH A GREAT INTERVIEW OF METHOD MAN AND OL'DIRTY BASTARD ON SWEDISH TV WHILE PROMOTING THEIR THEN NEW ALBUM "WU TANG FOREVER"

NEWS ROUND UP

Papoose vs Fat joe

Apparently there was an altercation between Papoose and Fat Joe on Friday 29th feb in a hotel room in North Carolina.
Story has it that Pap went to see Cassidy in his hotel room then Fat joe stormed in, asked if had a problem he then punched him so on and so forth.
This story has not been clarified by any of the camps so we wait to see what happens and who clear the air on this.

If it came to a fist fight doe, Pap is not packing more than a light middleweight at the most. I mean this guy probably a super bantom weight and we know fat joe aint no lightweight. So if it was a one on one i would expect pap to get at least a lil bruising.

More to come on this story soon


R.Kelly is on beef (he's a beast) lol

Everyone knows R.Kelly has had some problems regarding his personal life, from lil girls, urinating on them and all kinds of other dirt, this guy is pure classy.
Last year there were some well documented problems with Kells' tour and it ended up with Ne-Yo leaving the tour amongst some other problems. Now the Pied Piper of RnB has put out a tune that can only really be described as a beef tune where he just goes fucking greazy, its hilarious i hope this brings about a case of RnB beef just for the joke of it. He goe of on Ne Yo. Damn

Check it out here boomp3.com

THE GAME GONE TO PRISON FOR BEING A RETARD
the_game1_011905.jpg
The Game turned himself in to serve his 60 days in jail for, wait for it. Pulling out a gun in a basketball game in a school and waiving it around like a "G". (dick head)
What a fucking mess, these people in the public eye need to realize they cant just do anything they like, cos there will be repercussions. Waving a fucking gun in the air at a LA school, and this was after he had already punched the guy up. What a retard!!!!!
Enjoy it, BLOOD.

The regression of Shawn Carter



(Jigga back to the future?)

"are we hustling or are we grown up?" This is what Joe Budden asked. Well, Jay once said 30 is the new 20 (well, something like that), I guess he thinks he's 20 again based on these latest tracks. 40 this year, rapping about things you did 20 years ago in present tense is not progress.

Rick Ross ft. Jay-Z - Maybach music (here)

Jay-Z/Mary J Blige - You're welcome (clean-no tags) (here)

Mavado ft. Jay-Z - Never Stop Me (here)
