I saw this video a while back, I remember watching it for the first time in Thurston. It was a masterpiece then and its a masterpiece now. The animation is amazing and it really captures the song. It is also the 2 video released by Kanye this month. Why the material dump? Could new material be on the way? Stay Locked!

Full CDQ track off Paper Trail, props to Fake Shore Drive
Aug. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Barack Obama chose Senator Joseph Biden, a Delaware Democrat, to be his vice presidential running mate, selecting one of the party's leading foreign-policy figures and harshest critics of Republican John McCain's national security views.
The Obama campaign sent a text message to supporters at about 3 a.m. New York time announcing the decision. Obama and Biden are scheduled to appear together at a rally in Springfield, Illinois, today at 2 p.m. local time.

Also we are looking for a logo, so all you creative types out there get your pencils going. Winner gets to design the official Cornbread and Matzah T-Shirt and Mixtape cover and not to mention tons of internet exposure, and if your lucky you'll get some dough . All designs must be submitted to Stacks or myself and the readers will pick the final design.
So, here I am minding my own business at work today and out of nowhere on my Ipod's shuffle the Thong song came up and I couldn't help but to listen to the whole thing (twice?). If you know anyone who say that they didn't enjoy this song at some point then you know a DAMN LIAR! Whatever happened to Sisqo?
For our first Throw Back Thursday I dug out a track that mixes the old and new and as usual has a Chi Town focus. Kanye West and Consequence replace Q-Tip and Phiffe Dog in this 2003 remake of the Tribe classic "Electric Relaxation." For those of you that don't know 'Quence is actually Q-Tip's first cousin and began his career by making a bunch of guest appearences at the tender age of 16 on Beats, Rhymes and Life.
French musicians Justice did a mix for the latest Dior Homme Spring Summer 09 fashion show in Paris, just like Daft Punk did a year or so ago for Louis Vuitton. They dropped a new track. Classic Justice sound, epic piano chords, distorted arppegiated harpsichord, super compressed drums, filtered out synth, all the proper elements of a Justice track.
For all you fashion heads, the new Dior line is siiick. Check it out
What the fuck has our society come to? Until today I thought that the clearest sign of the decay of our society was that people spend time watching other people driving in circles - but nothing could prepare me for what I saw this afternoon.
I was watching T.V. earlier today and when I flicked over to the Olympics, I was appalled to see what looked like a group of 30 or so women speed walking in the rain. I rubbed my eyes because I didn't think that this group of wet, over-the-hill, mall-walkers could possibly be passing themselves off as Olympians. It seemed impossible to me that our society could award someone a medal for walking. I mean my grandma can walk, I can walk, toddlers can walk - What I'm getting at is that its kind of strange to honor someone for doing something that literally everyone can do - Jumping a pole vault is impressive - Doing a double back flip between uneven bars is really impressive - Walking is just pedestrian, in the most literal sense.
I became saddened when Bob Costas confirmed my worst fears - I was indeed watching the women's 20k speed walk - and worse, there were medals involved. What is most incredible about this whole "event" is that someone somewhere had to propose to an Olympic committee they should honor someone who speed walks for a half an hour with a medal equal in stature to the athlete that runs a marathon - and an entire room of people agreed with that moron. What's more, a television executive at MSNBC thought that people would be interested in watching what can only be described as the slowest and least interesting race imaginable. I would honestly rather watch Michael Phelps make a salad for a half an hour than that shit. If they can have a gold medal for walking, I want my gold medals for sleeping, smoking, and eating.

Barack Obama has become the most bandwagon topic in hip-hop production. Everyone from Jay-z to Common to (yes this is serious) DJ Drama have begun dropping lines about our Senator in recent recordings. The most recent ludacris mixtape, produced by DJ Drama "The Preview" even sparked a debate on Fox News when Judacris dropped these lines over the beat from Young Buck's single "Get Buck" -
"Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevent"
"John McCain doesn't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed"
"George Bush is mentally handicapped"
Although Ludacris is funny intentionally, DJ Drama's commentary at the end of the song is fucking priceless - For some reason hearing Drama scream "Its Time for Change" in the same voice that he screams "Gangsta Grillz" makes the slogan sound really sleazy... like mall Santa sleazy.
Fox news earlier this year refered to the pound Barack gave Michelle as a "terrorist fist jab" - So it makes sense that they would blow the Luda thing out of proportion as well.
Anyway we all already knew that Fox news is evil. Just ask Nas who recently delivered his petition to their corporate office to ask them to "stop their racist attacks on the Obama family."

CDQ Track from up comming Young Jeezy album "The Recession"
The Internet has been a buzz with details of the sequel to the summer smash "Dark Knight," The rumor mill is going crazy with a cast list that features Johnny Depp as the Riddler, Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin and even Angelina Jolie (Pitt?) as the sultry Catwoman. Well that would be dope to say the least. Stay Tuned for more spoilers.

American Sweetheart Shawn Johnson ended her runner-up streak with a beam routine Tuesday night that blew away the field, including all-around champ Nastia Liukin, behind whom Johnson got one of her three silvers.
Sergio Aguero scored two second-half goals in seven minutes Tuesday and later set up another to lead Argentina to a 3-0 win over rival Brazil and into its second straight Olympic final, this time against Nigeria.

I was just surfing and found these. With an opening date for this year’s Beijing Olympics taking place August 8th, 2008, the end seems near for the numerous Olympic-related lifestyle releases which have come to fruition to mark these games. For Nike, they’ve taken the age-old Chinese association with the numeral 8 and its derivatives with numerous designs focusing on octagons. In a limited run of One Piece Dunk Highs, Nike has created a pixel-esque pattern of the general upper of the Dunk High in a few different colors. Five different colorways are available at UNDFTD LA and SM starting Friday, August 8th.
Ben Stiller's "Tropic Thunder" scored $26 million over the weekend to claim the #1 spot at the domestic box office, ending the four-week reign of supremacy by "The Dark Knight." The war spoof has made $37 million since opening on Wednesday (incidentally, $4 million behind what "Pineapple Express" made last weekend).
But with a second-place finish and $16.8 million, "The Dark Knight" is still the story of the summer, meaning "Tropic Thunder," "Iron Man" and just about everyone else save Michael Phelps will have to settle for minor victories. Falling only 35 percent, "The Dark Knight" continued to make history in its fifth weekend in release, climbing past "Star Wars" to become the second-highest-grossing movie of all time. Its total now stands at a mind-boggling $471.5 million.
The self proclaimed "Funkiest Teenager," Ill Cosby (aka EnfaRedd, Dookie Sinclair, SlimeZilla) of the Wiggidies Crew has had a busy summer. Spending June to August in the studio, Cosby relies on self production, the beats of Benny Nice, The Kid and even Polow (Love in this club remix is fire) and a strong list of guest appearances from fellow Wiggidies members. A few highlights include a sample of TV's Dora the Explorer and a soulful KMD sampled "Blunts in my fronts." Stay Tuned for more artist profiles and more from Ill Cosby The coldest. SouthSide!
