Tyga "Exposed"

Part 1

Part 2

"You a competer nigga, you a competer"

The "Tyga exposed" series should be made into a straight to TV movie about a boy (played by Ralph Macchio of course) who rises to fame by getting robbed, exposed, and having homo-thugs wearing punk rock mohawks make youtube videos about you while clutching your baby pictures. No offense to homo-thugs. or mohawks.

Black Moon's Buckshot hospitalized for seizures

Buckshot of the legendary group Black Moon was hospitalized yesterday after returning from Europe due to multiple seizures.

A statement from Duck Down's CEO and the article can be found here:

"While of course we are disappointed to have to reschedule a sold out show obviously nothing takes precedent over Buckshot's health. If he could walk out of that hospital on his own right now I know he would have been on that stage. He was truly looking forward to this night," said Duck Down CEO Dru Ha.

Damn, hope he gets better, this aint nothin to play with


Since when did Jim Judas need a documentary?

T.I. Is Mad

I mean, shit like this happens, even though this vid screams "Public Relations", im sure that Paper Trail will be fine. Especially seeing as though "Whatever You Like" did so well in its first few weeks of release. Rappers and record companies have the wrong idea about how blogs and the internet in general work. There's a shaky (read: im talking Michael J. Fox here) relationship between the internet and music in general. Rappers are starting social websites and youtube channels and forgetting that the key of internet culture is that it is a COUNTER culture in the end. It's all well and good that you give away free music, but in the end dont think you are smarter than the average blogger! Just because you send out lowly interns and street teams to spam sohh.com and nahright comments and forums doesnt mean that you "understand" or that they will stop going to their local newsgroup to download your (likely) shitty album. Spam is spam, niggas will ignore it and do what they want.

"DMX Stops, Drops, goes to emergency room"

I had to steal that tagline from TMZ:

"DMX is once again inside a facility, but for once it isn't a jail.

Sources tell us DMX was brought to the emergency room at a hospital in Aventura, Fla. yesterday for "fear of a stroke."

Since DMX is on a court-appearance-per-week regimen these days, he's actually scheduled to appear in an Arizona court today.

We don't think he'll be making it."

DMX is hip hops britney spears hahaha

Kid Cudi interview

this guy is up next forreal

Kanye will control your TV too

From Hollywood Reporter:

"Comedy Central has teamed with Kanye West for a project described as hip-hop meets the Muppets.

A half-hour pilot has been shot for the project, tentatively titled "Alligator Boots." It's from Jackhole Prods., the production company founded by Jimmy Kimmel, Daniel Kellison and Adam Carolla that also was behind Comedy Central's puppet-centric "Crank Yankers."

The project, which is under consideration for 2009, would feature music produced and performed by West and fellow rapper Rhymefest, both of whom are serving as executive producers on the pilot alongside Kellison. West also hosts the pilot; the idea is to have a different celebrity guest host for every episode, similar to the setup on the original "Muppet Show."

Kimmel's brother Jon ("South Park") is co-exec producer on the pilot."

"Notorious" Trailer

Looks a bit VH1'ish for my tastes, but I guess this movie lives or dies by Biggie's portrayal. LOL @ Puffy though.

Travis Barker & DJ AM in critical condition after plane crash

Travis Barker, a former Drummer for Blink 182, and DJ AM are in critical condition after the plane they were flying on went off the runway and crashed. Four other people aboard the plane were killed.

According to local news reports, Barker and DJ AM, whose real name Adam Michael Goldstein, were transported to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia where they are listed in critical condition.

Barker performed Friday night at an event with Perry Farrel, Gavin DeGraw, and DJ AM.

The FAA said the plane carrying six people was departing when an air traffic controller reported seeing sparks. The plane went off the runway and crashed on a nearby road.

If you're trying to build a buzz for your new song "Pants Hang Low"....dont DONT DONT do it in New York. Some of the responses to "do you like Plies?" range from hilarious to cringe worthy. And then to masquerade it as a "documentary" is even more perplexing, as if we need to know the gay and NON gay definition to "Easy Access". All in all, the most ignorant vid of the week

Music Review: DJ Khaled: We Global


Another year, another Khaled mixtape album, though this time "Global" makes up for the fatal missteps of last years "We The Best" (one of the worst albums of last year in my opinion). Focusing on what made his first effort, 2006's "Listen", such a solid album, Khaled ditches the tried and true formula (the Wayne, Baby, Ross, Fat Joe superteam that molested your ears last year) and gives us new mashups and all around better production.

Khaled uses "We Global" to showcase breakthrough producers The Runners, who produce a quarter of the album, including the Kanye West helmed "Go Hard" which features T-Pain in a autotune anthem that is up there with Khaled's best anthems, like "I'm So Hood".

"Global" isnt short of its share of anthems, which include the first single "Out Here Grindin" which features Akon, and a myriad of southern artists, and the title track which features Trey Songz and Ray J surprisingly waxing gangsta over a smooth Runners produced track.

The album also features appearances by Nas and the Game, who serve to raise the quality of the album (and the authenticity of Khaled's guest verse address book). Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott and Pitbull also make appearances of negligible quality. If there's one thing you cant fault the album for is the feeling of freshness that it has Lil' Wayne is nowhere to be found, Fat Joe is on only one track, Rick Ross' appearances are at a minimum as well. Newcomer Ace Hood has a excellent showing on the album as his rapid fire delivery and grimey flow highlight one of the reasons Khaled puts him on most of the album.

"We Global", while not the most lyrically sound mixtape albums around, serves as a great diversion in an increasingly cramped Fall and Winter for hip hop music. I'd definitely give it a listen.

According to SOHH:

Busta Rhymes has left Aftermath/Interscope and is officially signed with Universal Motown.

According to Motown reps, the New York rapper has signed an agreement to release his next project on the famed label - which is also home to Lil’ Wayne and Chamillionaire.

This is a good look for him i would suppose, home of Wayne and to a lesser extent Chamillionaire (who caught a brick last year). Interscope is slowly becoming the home of falling stars and hasbeens.

Music Review: LL Cool J: Exit 13


LL Cool J isnt lying when he exclaims (as he has done many times before) that he helped build a fledgling label named Def Jam into the powerhouse it is today. He's remained at the company for over two decades and "Exit 13" reflects an end of an era as his Def Jam tenure ends. Though it isnt his best work, "13" is the most focused LL has been in years.

Opening the album with the "300"-esque sounds of "Prepare For War", LL puts young rappers on blast expressing his frustration ("when i walk in the room young boys look at me strange/as if i am a relic from some long forgotten game") at being seemingly forgotten in the current state of music. LL struggles to prove his worth on songs like "Rockin Wit The G.O.A.T.", or "Ringtone Murder", ("drop jewels like yoda, my young students love me") proving that he is still a competent spitter, weathered by years of polish. "You Betta Watch Me" is a damn near throw back to LL's old teenage "Bigger and Deffer" years, once again pleading a case of relevance ("you cant compare me to them line for line, im beyond that i represent eras and time").

LL is of course a great MC after all these years, though "Exit 13" features some pretty limp production overall. Ryan Leslie, Dame Grease and Marley Marl all contribute, though on "Get Over Here" you wonder why the producer (or the guest artists) even tried.

"13" also manages to be bogged down with filler that borders and crosses the corny boundary. "Baby" (Featuring The-Dream) would have you fooled into believing that this album was another "Todd Smith" disaster (lyrically the song is confusing), and "I Fall In Love" is even more disgusting. Who thought that including the "Baby" remix (with Richie Sambora!) two songs after the original was a great idea?

"Mr. President" features Wyclef Jean and also strikes as foul on LL's part as it's too little too late, and along with the other offending tracks on the album (just wait until you hear the "American Girl" song) it creates an album that is schizophrenic in its delivery. LL wants to go hard again, this being his last album and all, but he seems to fall into the same caveats that got his past few albums panned critically.

"Exit 13" is a bittersweet ending to LL's era at Def Jam, as LL proves that he is more than capable at holding his own lyrically in this day and age, but he makes certain decisions that prove that he is out of touch as well. Will LL be able to come back rejuvenated with a new deal, or will it end here? Only time will tell

Hell Rell speaks on his Dipset departure

Shouts out to Real Talk NY for the vid.

sad day in hip hop. Hell Rell was probably the LAST die hard Dipset soldier, so yeah, the set is pretty much over for real now. I'll never forget his in jail freestyles from Diplomatic Immunity 1 (complete with the "I love you"s at the end).

This goes to show, as the industry downsizes, so does crews. Nothing ever lasts forever in music and this is a testament to that. sad.

Dame Diddy comments on Kanye's arrest

Cosigning Jim Jones as the future of hip hop died in 2004, Dame.

At the end of the day...

......I wish Juelz well. That's all i can say.


Just when you think it couldnt get worse...


From Sohh.com

According to myfoxatlanta.com, after pleading no contest to a 2005 assault charge, Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis) was sentenced to 6 months in jail and required to serve 6 and a half years of probation.

The terms of his probation required the Atlanta-based rapper to serve 600 hours of community service however in the 3 years that he has been out Gucci has only logged 25 hours total. Along with revealing that information at today's hearing, authorities also said that Gucci tested positive for ecstasy, marijuana and alcohol at a probation meeting.

As a result, the judge revoked one year of his probation and ordered him back to jail. After serving one year behind bars, Gucci will still have 2.5 years of probation and 600 hours of community service ahead of him.

I mean even i coulda told you that he was still on X and weed, he made a song called "Pillz"!

oh yeah, and this;

see ya later gucci

Uncut Dope

Young Jeezy claims his second chart-topper on the Billboard 200 as "The Recession" starts at No. 1 this week. The Def Jam set moved 260,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, 92,000 short of the 352,000-unit start for his previous No. 1, 2006's "The Inspiration."

Kanye gets LOCKED UP

He's either having the best week ever, or he's lost his damn mind.

Courtesy of TMZ:

Kanye West has just been arrested at LAX for felony vandalism.

A still photographer was trying to take pics of Kanye at the American Airlines terminal. According to our guy on the scene, Kanye allegedly confronted the photog and smashed his camera to the ground.

Our photog then began videotaping the scene when Kanye’s assistant grabbed our camera — a struggle ensued and the assistant threw the video camera to the ground, breaking it.

When Kanye realized our camera guy had videotaped the incident, he rushed our guy and yelled, “Gimme that f**king tape!”

Both Kanye and his assistant have been arrested and will be booked.

The video should be up shortly, but a couple of media outlets have already picked up on the story.

New M.O.P


Damn, just as SOON as i get a new ipod

Apple announced the new ipod nano and touch today at their "Let's Rock" ipod event this morning.

along with being environmentally friendly, the nano comes with new upgrades that connect well with the newly released ITunes8 along with upgrades that incorprate the technology from the iphone/ipod touch:

* An accelerometer so you can now tilt it to the side to see album artwork (Coverflow)and games being made for it which take advantage of the accelerometer just like the iphone/ipod touch.
* You can now change song to a random one by just simply shaking the nano.
* The screen is 2 inches which will be good for your videos on the go.
* The 4GB nano is no more (thank god) and now it goes from the 8GB = $149 and the 16GB = $199

for the first time i actually want a damn nano, they are fucking cool.

more info about the upgraded ipod touch and more at apple.com

Re-Up Gang is NO MORE *crickets*

According to Sandman via HipHopDX:

"I'm not tryin' to be a god-damned architect or nothin', or else I'd put my time into that. When you have a movement like the Re-Up Gang, something that came out of nowhere that was turned into a cult following, I just don't see how people dropped the ball on the last project. So it didn't make sense for me to stick around if +@$+ ain't in my best interest."

The most interesting quote however is this:

He elaborated further, stating that a key point in his dispute was the album's video, which featured on The Clipse rapping. "It ain't in my best interest to put out a 'Fast Lane' video, after three years of nothing but street-driven music." The album the aforementioned single promoted added to the displeasure "We gave y'all three critically-acclaimed mixtapes just to give y'all this toilet bowl-ass album and their video. To me, it's unjust. The fans are onto it now too, 'Damn, that's it for the Re-Up?' 'Cause now all you hear about is [The Clipse' forthcoming album] Til The Casket Drops. The Re-Up Gang has been phased out; I guess I was just supposed to play along. I'm not no fuckin' nut!"

can't say i didnt see this coming, the Koch project wasnt beneficial for Ab Liva or Sandman at all. They werent even featured in bulk on the Fast Life video. I think I predicted this on my review of the re up gang album way back when, The Clipse' shtick of disappointment is getting old.

Kanye West: 808's and Heartbreak (December 16th): UPDATED INFO

From: uheardthatnew:

So, an EXTREMELY reliable source (Young Legend, GOOD LOOKS!) has just revealed to me that the title of Kanye’s 4th solo Lp is, 808’s & Heartbreak and it’s arriving December 16th. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, LowKey ain’t BS’ing, 808’s and Heartbreak will be hitting stores December 16th and you heard it from LowKey FIRST! I’ve also learned also that Kanye’s vocals for the entire Lp will be sprinkled with the Auto-Tuner (T-Pain’s magic vocal toy, lol). Why?? Don’t ask me, but I can assure you this will probably be 2008’s most interesting piece of audio.

After finding out the title to the LP, I now understand the title of the first single and its content. Legend also explained to me that this project will be somewhat equivalent to Andre 3000’s, The Love Below. Some are confused as to why he’s returning so early, but with the loss of his mother and the split with his fiance, Alexis Phifer, one could only imagine that type of ish he has to get off his chest!

“Love Lockdown” makes MUCH more sense now!

Happy BIrthday Dreamcast!

The Sega Dreamcast was released nine years ago today, and it was truly one of the most revolutionary consoles for its time. It introduced online gameplay, the 2k series, and allowed deveopers like Capcom to really take games to the next level. Though it was only around for a few years, it's presence is still felt. Dreamcast games are still being made in Japan, and most if not all of the systems hits have been remade or rereleased in some capacity.

My favorites:
Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike (one of the greatest fighting games ever)
Resident Evil: Code Veronica
Marvel Vs Capcom 2
Capcom vs SNK 1 & 2
Sonic Adventure 1 (the killer whale scene is the GOAT)
NBA 2k1
Jet Grind Radio (the illest artistically sound games ever)
Project Justice

Music Review: Gym Class Heroes: The Quilt


Popular Alt Rock/Hip Hop playboys, Gym Class Heroes, have enjoyed an almost whirlwind year, starting with the breathrough of their popular single "Cupid's Chokehold", and the charismatic leadership of frontman and MC Travis McCoy. Where the band lacks in a real definition of their genre, they gain in their pertinent anthems about, pretty much anything someone from 16-25 could understand.

"The Quilt" sees the band embrace more of their hip hop stylings, teaming with Cool & Dre, who frequently team with artists like Fat Joe and Lil' Wayne, Tricky Stewart and R&B act The-Dream. The result is ultimately mixed, as it is in direct conflict with the more traditional underground pop style that they have carved a niche out of. Songs like the first single "Cookie Jar" (featuring The-Dream) are nice diversions, yet "Kissing Ears" (also...featuring The-Dream) is bordering on corny. Cool & Dre seem to understand the band more, and thus fare better with "Peace Sign/Index Down" and "Home" where their production compliments the groups weaknesses.

The rest of "Quilt" is pretty much by the numbers, aside from the new risks the band takes with production. "Blinded By The Sun" features Patrick Stump from Fall Out Bou is sure to be the new anthem for the anthem, and "Catch Me If You Can" follows the formula the band set when they worked closely with Stump. Perhaps the most perplexing feature on the album isnt a The-Dream or Lil' Wayne (whose verse on "Dont Tell Me Its Over" is suspiciously missing), but Daryl Hall from Hall & Oates on the 7 minute "Live Forever (Fly With Me)". It's almost as if the gods of pop rock/soul are handing off the reigns to the next generation...a distinction that GCH are glad to take.
