Christmas Ends - Chanukah Still Kicking Ass

Twas the month before Christmas and all across the web - a bunch of dudes my age began to spread - Cold rhymes by the dozen they leaked over blogs - While quietly hip hop fans light their yule logs - Freestyles they spit from off their domes by the dozen - And a smile hits my mouth while my headphones are thumping
XXL called them Class of '09 - all that matters is each has fat bags of rhymes - So get your shit right with CBM this holiday season - as Stax yells "On Asher, On B.o.B, On Blu - Charles - and Blixen"

Anyway, I've never been much for Egg Nog, Stockings or Suburbanites flooding onto Michigan Ave. So, this year since Chanukah extends after Christmas I'm opening the vault and bringing out hot shit from new MCs that has been put out at various points this year to keep your Holiday party rocking until 2009. Anyway, the point is I need you to pause the bullshit on your I-Tunes and put this on right now

Stax Rothstein Presents: The Music You Should Be Listening to Part 1: Asher Roth and B.o.B

Asher Roth is the hottest Jewish kid to hit a mic since Aesop Rock. His voice sounds remarkably like Eminem's but honestly comparing the two beyond that is like comparing Biggie to Gorilla Black. Plus he's the first white guy to get a Gangsta Grillz Mixtape from DJ Drama - What's not to love. Below is the aforementioned mixtape and a few other tracks including "I Love College" which would have been his first single until Weezer front man, and big asshole, Rivers Cuomo, put the breaks on it by refusing to clear the sample from "Say it Ain't So."

DJ Drama and DJ Cannon Present:
Asher Roth - The Green House Effect

Asher Roth - I Love College

Asher Roth - The Reading

Merry Christmas, Happy Hunukkah, Happy Kwannza

Got some Dub Crew Christmas music from the homie WeirdScience- Peep-

HoHoHo Merry Christmas!
