RIP Guru

We lost a legend in Keith Elam.

Despite having tried to distance himself from his legendary work with Dj Premier as one half of Gangstarr in the later years, he still dropped knowledge whenever he grabbed the mic.

For those of you disrespectful fucks who were in the club yesterday at Afterlife in Scottsdale AZ when the DJ dropped Mass Appeal and you looked dazed and confused....kill yoselves.

In rock n roll/popish we got Ke$ha talkin about how she wanna fuck men that look like Mick Jagger and he looks like death himself.


Hip-hop, rap, or whatever you wanna call it is the only musical genre that doesn't respect the people who pioneered the shit.

All you aspiring MCs who aren't up on Guru and what he represented to this culture?

He was Gifted, Unlimited, Rhymes, Universal.

RIP Keith Elam

Shout Out B.o.B AKA Bobby Ray AKA Mr 3 Top 10 Singles

Since itunes currently is single-handedly the financial lifeline to the music industry, if you can sell some itunes units, it usually is a pretty good indication that you are gonna sell some physical copies too.

B.o.B, Bobby Ray, or just talented young brother.

Mad props for getting 3 singles on the itunes Top 10 Rap/Hip-Hop Singles at once.

Go out and buy a copy of his album when it drops this Tuesday and support talent so they stop mass producing rappers.

Nothing against Wayne and his love of guitar strumming...

But there is a HUGE difference in rapping over beats that have guitar riffs, and rapping over a guitar riff that you actually created yourself.

Good to see that talent is rising again to the top in the cesspool that is the music industry.
Dream is the Radio Killer.
So Bobby Ray is the itunes Killer.
And Radio Reviver.
Grand Hustle's Secret Weapon...

Blame it on the Warrants - DJ Drama & Fabolous Bury the Dead

No not the alcohol T-Pain.
Send your thank you's to Sherrif Joe for keeping me from blessing yall with smackers.

America's most loved Sherrif Joe Arpaio and his Tent City in case you aren't familiar.

Tent City gave me an ear infection during my stay there and an asthma attack at 6:30 in a cold Arizona morning.

That picture makes it look hot but hot in the desert day means cold in the desert evening in desert logic.

Also in a strange twist of fuckery, check me out on MSNBC's Lockup in July.

Not by choice but as the Detention Officers informed me when I protested my being filmed, "You're county property. Be happy we feed you."

Now back to our regularly scheduled music.

Shout out Fabolous because dammit There is No Competition. 2.

Personally I support DJ Drama to the fullest so yes you will be getting his drops people.

Quality music should be supported by us the fans.



DJ Drama & Fabolous - There is No Competition 2

PS: If you have been sleeping on Freck Billionaire, the Billionaire in his name probably makes you feel worthless.
Step your bars up.
Before Fab dropped this tape, I only had There is No Competition and Freck Billie's Fist Full of Dollars and one other mixtape to quench my thirst for bars.
Peep Mr. Bar 4 Bar.
Freck Billionaire - Mr. Handsdown
Freck Billionaire - Drug Dealer
And just for kicks lets listen to Freck rip into Floyd Mayweather.
Floyd better beat Mosley's ass is all I'm sayin.
Don't be like Oklahoma and just be OK.
Freck Billionaire - 39-1 (Floyd Mayweather diss)
Fabolous and his Street Fiddidaboys are quite skilled with the wordplay, word to Paul Cain.
