A bit late on this but as it features our favourite hip-hop personality how could I let it go.
A few weeks later still no flip cam for Jim Jones, Jim calls up Ciph at Shade 45 and enquires about this. Something along the lines of "Pete got my f*****g camera yet, he has, good coz I was about to beat the s**t out of him" He then goes onto advise he's giving him a pass as Pete is now officially Jimmy's white n***a. Thats a quote. You can catch the whole story plus Ciph's breakdown of what would happen on tour with Jim Jones by checking out their weekly podcast:
We start off this week with a (lupe) Fiasco FRIDAY Courtesy of DJ Johnny Vega over at Digital Undaground

Joe Budden ft. Heartbreak- No More
T-Pain - Can’t Believe It f. Lil Wayne
For those with some good taste
Let's face it though, its not all about the new music, is it?
We have to celebrate the good shit. It was only, what? Ten or twelve years ago? When good urban music was so abundant you would actually struggle to fit all the good current albums into your schedule so you could listen to em all properly.
With this guy though it wasnt like that if you knew bout good music you knew bout D'Angelo. If you missed it, you were either slipping on the music or pure retarded and too busy listening to the Diddy album of the 90's, which was shit.
Anyway possibly one of the best RnB artists of the 90s download this right here if you dig it and if you don't know bout d'Angelo, then shit, you need a wake up call and a trip to your local music shop.

Hood legends Robbie Fowler and Baron Davis meet at last! Along with Juan Pablo Angel, Thierry Henry, Saloman Kalou, Steve McManaman, Jason Kidd, Raja Bell and Leandro Barbosa they showed support and came out for their boy Steve Nash' charity football (soccer!) match in New York this week. Speaking from someone who enjoyed killing every other school in basketball after suffering endless defeats on the football pitch it's obvious that the skills are equally non-transferable in the pro's. Although Baron Davis did manage a header with his LA Dodgers fitted on, LOL.

My favorite mc under the most slept on/under-rated... category. Broken lines, non-concise lyrics matched with sick cadence, the boy was fire. Kanye agrees, if you consider that as a good thing. See below for links to his 2 unreleased albums, unfortunately on a par with Nas when it comes to consistently picking decent beats. The mic skills make up for this however.

So I'm watchin' her fine ass
Walk into my bedroom, and thought to myself
That's the shape of things to come
She said, "Why you in the club, and you don't make it precipitate?
You know, make it rain when you can make it thunderstorm"
I'm like, "Why? "
The world needs sun
The hood needs funds
There's a war going on and half the battle is guns
How dare I throw it on the floor
When people are poor
So I write like Edgar Allen to restore, got a cord?
Umbilical attached to a place they can't afford
No landscaping, Or window draping
This old lady told me,
"If I ain't got nothin' good, say nathing"
Whilst still eagerly waiting the 'Out here grindin' video I thought we better post the new Shawty Lo video being that there is a Dj Khaled intro. Possibly one of the worst songs I've heard for a while, Baby on the autotune (!?) and nonsense from tha Boss. Wait till the end though otherwise you'll miss the Jimmy Jones verse.

The recent viral mess from Curtis and his friends has been nothing short of embarrassing. Lets have a look at some recent low lights.
Lloyd Banks : I guess I would judge that on my time period. I haven't been in the game for long but ill say I'm the best under 30.
Now I'm not an Ice T or Soulja Boy fan, I respect their hustle but their music is another thing. I saw this video posted and I had heard 'bout the comments made, but I paid it no attention 'till I was told that actually Soulja boy had some good points and in the end made Ice T to look a bit of a prick so enjoy this youth telling Ice how it is. He starts a bit playschool with some good shots aimed at Ice T's age as well as the fact he made a record called fuck the police and then 35 years later went on to play a police officer on the telly(this guy was born in 58 dammmmmmmmmn). Anyway after the 4 minute mark he gets serious and to be honest hats off to him he's right.
Weezy sells a million copies in the first week and records a free remix to thank his fans
A millie (freemix)
Nas hooks up with Dj kahled, Who? We the best! and brings us
Styles P brings us new stuff with
Bitch Nigga Run
For those of you who like your hip-hop with a lil less bitches and bling and a lil more reality and political awareness, immortal techinque will be vocally cutting his wrists and calling for some economical reforms on this 3rd solo album/mixtape called
The 3rd World
New hot shit from the Alchemist. Hes been away for a hot minute but we all know this guy can make serious beat, catch the latest installement of his mixtape series "the cutting room floor."
The Cutting Room Floor 2
OK OK OK
I know a lil late with these, i had them for at least a week but i just didnt have time to put them up.
First we have the Nas "Nigger" album saga. He wanted to bring the album titled Nigger out for some shock value as well as maybe a lil marketing ploy but people for whatever reasons were not having it (both good and bad resons), so Nas decided the mixtape was the only way to bring the knowledge to the masses with the title and message that he wanted. He teamed up with Green Lantern an bought us this the
Next the boys from D block have got together again to give us another mixtape. Styles P, Jadakiss and sheek louch bring us some fire on the supa mario mixtape
So You Wanna Be A Supa Hero?
Now for those of you who dont know Joell Ortiz let me say just this. What the fuck are you doing???????????????
Joell is pure latin fire straight outta BK, first signed to Aftermath imprint then later dropped.He has now put that shit behind him and come back to hit the streets hard with hard features such as the Last night song with Mavado. If you aint heard him this is the time to kop this mixtape and get to know.
The Brooklyn Bomber
If you're older than say 25 you probably got the CNN "War Report" album sitting pretty on top of your all time collection. I know for a fact that Cappone and Noreaga fans have been waiting for some new shit for some time now.
Dj Whoo Kid has now put together a new street album from the war veterans of hp hop.
CNN Back On That QU Shit
Ok also LL cool J has a new mixtape but i aint posting that shit if you want it go find it. Nothing against LL i just cant hear him chatting shit bout chicks and licking his lips.
This should keep you going till at least next week, when i will be back with another installement of Friday freeness.

(the big 3 have all waited 10+ years for this moment, they deserved it)
If there was a points system for hustle play, desire and hunger to win a title, the above scoreline would go someway the highlight the disparity among the two teams. Lakers got embarrassed last night as the Celtics continued to shut them down on the defensive end and dominated every statistical category imaginable.
|Fast Break Points||2||16|

Another poor performance from Kobe (8-21 shooting) ensuring that ridiculous comparisons to you know who will never resurface again. Benefiting from a superstar no-call at the end of the game and poor free throw shooting from Garnett, the Lakers surprisingly held on to win after looking second best for 3 quarters. Interestingly enough the only player competing like his life depended on it was James Posey, who already has a championship. Facing elimination there was a severe lack of energy among the Lakers and the Hollywood crowd who only seem interested when the camera is on them or Kobe scores. Boston will take what they deserve on Tuesday.

Kay Slay responding to Jermaine Dupri's stupid 'djs are dead' comment. Whatever you think about Kay Slay, he's been part of the culture since its birth. The majority of what he says is absolutely right. Gets a bit crazy at the end though.
The beauty of the NBA is that there's always an opportunity to make a come back. 24 points is a reach though. With another superb performance from Paul Pierce and big time contributions from the boys E House and Posey the Celts are now 1 game away from the trophy. I was leaning towards the Lakers before this started but have been totally impressed by the resolve of the Celts. Jesus Shuttlesworth also reminded everyone he's still smooth on the court when he needs to be. Check out the super slo-mo, seems to be forever falling but never hits the ground.

A 20 year old kid from Harlem via Cleveland signed by Pharrell to Star Trak. Recently gained notoriety through this freestyle cipher with Kanye and The Game. The kid is definitely coming through with his own style, finding a way to create entertaining rhymes without referencing guns in every other line. Which is nice.

I for one can't wait to see this video, I think getting chased by a fireball whilst rapping your verse is a new event in video history. Whatever you think about Dj Khaled it goes to show that unity breeds success. Think about how many people are down with 'we the best', besides the Miami contingent you got people like Jeezy, Maino, Gym Class Heroes, Kardinal Official, Cipha Sounds, Nore ... the list goes on. A pretty varied collection of cats. As Westwood once said 'beef just gets in the way of making paper'. And Khaled is all about that paper!
Last year Peter Rosenberg had just joined Hot97 and went straight to SummerJam to get played out by everyone. A year later and things have changed. The biggest superstars in the game actually know who he is and strangely seem to enjoy his insults and awkward interview style. The dynamic of a conversation between a suburban nerdy white guy who has an underground hip-hop show and the biggest names in rap make for pretty entertaining viewing.

I'm right, chyeah
In my chair
With my crown, with my dear
Queen Bee, as I share
Mic time, with my air
Is that not
Why we came? and if not,
Then why bother?
Show no mercy in Murcielago's
Now my name's being mentioned with the martyrs
The Biggie's and the Pac's and the Marley's and the Marcuses
A Molotov Cocktail
Flow even if you box well
Can't stop the blows *Kaboom*
The Roc Boy in the room
The dope, boy just came off the spoon
Fly I'm on auto-
While guys just
Stare at my wardrobe
I see Euro's
That's right, plural
I took so much change
From this rap game
It's your go!
(Hey Mr. Carter)

I was over on the UniverSOUL Blogg and this is the Omet Saar produced album of classic Al green instrumentals laced with some classic hip-hop acapellas.
Found this on the net of two kids going sick. One on the turntables doing the cuts and more impressively one serious youth going crazy on the violin.
He covers in this order- A Tribe Called Quest, Check the Rhyme then Jurassic 5 Canta de Ossanha then Ghostface Killah Chercez la Ghost then The Roots The Next Movement then Gnarls Barkley Crazy, i don know what the last tune is.

The latest update on the pied peado is this. Kell's is well and truly fucked! I bet you now is the time that he really wishes he could fly. I can only wonder what other skeletons this sicko has trapped in the closet? It would appear that as the prosecution star witness took the stand R.kelly began to prepare himself for some prison Bump and Grind as he looked seriously worried in the courtroom. The star witness, a Van Allen has not only identified both Kell's and the victim in the case on the video tape but also the wooden room which she claims was in Kell's former home. She went on to say that while she had a relationship with Kell's with everything paid for by him she had had a threesome with Kell's and the victim on more than one occasion. Once in that wooden room and once in R. Kelly's basketball court with all the freaky shit being filmed by him. Further to that she claimed Kell's always carried a certain duffel bag full of his home made porn everywhere he went. She also Claims she had been given money by Kells people to keep it on the proverbial DL.

Jadakiss again masters the art of saying the most with the fewest words. His style of short, broken sentences and short words has been the formula taken by most mc's since his arrival, which for the most part goes unnoticed.
Usually i don't post stuff about waste music such as UK Mc No Bizzy unless of course shit is so dumb that it merits some exposure even if only for laughing purposes.
Now then, this is surely potentially as amusing as such other hip comedy classics like the R Kelly beef tune (where he calls out for Ne-Yo) or maybe even as amusing as Jim Jones' adlibs, " Vroom Vroom".
This, and i havent heard it yet, can only be an album full of bad rhyming, shit flows and Play school beats as The Jackass lays out his style in this his debut album. Steve-O did recently try to top himself or maybe he was sectioned. i'm not sure, as i don't watch the Hollyweird circuit to closely, it was one of the two anyway and I hope it wasn't a result of his lack of good reviews for his debut album or some rap beef. Finally the question that remains in my head is, how in the fuck did he get a feature from Kool G Rap on this and could it be any good? I saw the tracklist and he's there. True Stories!
Now the link i had for the download ain't working so as soon as i have a working one i will post it.
I myself am curious as hell to hear this particular white boy lay down some bars. Whats next for the Jackass boys??? Maybe Johnny Knoxvile is about to release a RnB love jams album called "know my gooch" (no homo).
Stay tuned for that one.
Last week we posted the advance up, now we bring you the Carter 3 special edition, there are a couple of extra tracks on there - 18 in total - click the image to download.
