If there are two artists white people (especially ones that buy music on I-Tunes) love its Jay-Z and Chris Martin. They're like the Barack Obama and Joe Biden of the recording industry. No offense Joe Budden, you know we supported your VP candidacy. Anyway, the pigment imared super DJ's of the League Crew, Terry Urban and Mick Boogie, follow up last years success with The Graduate, with Viva La Hova. This collection of Jay-Z and Coldplay Mashups is an immediate underground senstion and a must have for anyone that wants to look with it or hip or deck or whatever the fuck people in tight jeans want me to call cool these days.
The youth of America are scared shitless by you. I'm not sure whether its the red baiting or racist attacks that you've made on my family's friends or just your disregard for basic human decency. Frankly you remind us of our friends awkwardly attractive hyper-conservative control freak mom, and that doesn't sit well with us. We don't want her in the White House telling us that we need to stop smoking blunts and start hunting wolves from helicopters. But policy matters aside - This is a woman who named her children Trig and Treg. This shows a blatant disregard for our generation and the naming conventions within the English language. Shame on you Karibu Barby, Shame on you.
In reponse to this kid shit campaign effort, Super Producer Jared Paul brings us a banging track from a rugrats sample. The Stax Rothstein premire track will feature on two upcoming mixtapes including Jared Paul's follow up to last year's Ratatashups. Not to come off as more cocky than usual, but this track is amazing. The quality of writing from Andrew Gladstone "Stone" and Josh Smith "WordSmith" is apparent in each of their carfully crafted lines. Plus just like Kanye I'm working this whole autotune thing out of my system. The difference between me and Kanye is that when I do it I say something that people give a fuck about. The situation in the Economy is dier, this election is of paramount importance, and at this defining moment in history no one gives a fuck about Kanye's heartbreak. They want to talk about some real shit and the Kosher Nostra brings it. If I sound more arrogant than usual then its because, as Chi Town legend Common said "I'm on my own shit like and entrpenure that stepped in manure" Without further adue here this is the CornbreadandMatzah world premire of Stax Rothstein "Pickles vs Palin: Round 1 (Trig Onometry) feat. Stone & WordSmith." More hot shit to come.
So I was told this weekend that I should put more ladies sneakers up, and we all know that I am never one to disapoint so I got two hot joints for the ladddiees. Fresh pair of Voltage Nike Dunks, tailor made for the ladies just in time for winter (I know you love the boots ladies, but no winter footwear collection is complete with out a good sneaker these days lol)
this is a fresh pair designed by Jeremy Scott and Missy E. I kinda wish they made em in men's.
Eminem announced that his next album, titled, Relapse, will be released by the end of the year. He also released a hot freestyle that showcases how he has refined some the more positive elements that developed recently in his flows (e.g. rhythms in his bars like "Smack That" and Encore with better content in his lines). Looks like Shady Aftermath/Interscope is planning some epoch shit for 2009 and 50 Cent plans to drop Before I Self Destruct in December and Dr. Dre's white whale, 8 years in the making, Detox is supposed to be out in early '09.
What it is boys and girls? It's been a great week in hip-hop. Monday was VH-1's Hip Hop Honors. This years Honorees were De La Soul, Slick Rick, Too Short, Cypress Hill and Naughty By Nature. Highlights include a tribute to De La by Q-tip, Mos Def, Estelle, Public Enemy (With Flava Flav) and EPMD. The best performance of the night by far was the tribute to the late Issac Hayes by the Roots, Mos Def, Q-Tip, Cee-lo, Estelle, Scarface and Public Enemy, Shit was FIRE! If you haven't seen it please watch it ASAP.
