Been around for a while now but I’m sure somebody out there hasn’t seen it yet. Hilarious. Typical Crews.
I dunno why but for some reason I can’t stop listening to this album: I mean…I never really cared for Triple 6 Mafia, but for some reason I’m really feelin this album. It’s a guilty pleasure. Makes me think of those clubs you find yourself in at 3am with zero lighting except something pink and..
I know…it’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to update my blog…it’s just…there’s this nu thang goin on in my life… For real though…I’m just busy. The move to Oakland seems to have shortened my available time for messing around on the internet. But I’ll try to keep updating it. I swear.
Easily one of my favorite albums of all time, Doggystyle changed the game. I’ve come across 4 or 5 articles out there talking about the 20th anniversary of Doggystyle and learned a lot of cool stuff I didn’t really know. And then a friend of mine sent me a mixtape hosted by Snoop walking the..
20 years since this one came out (and on my Mom’s 38th, to boot). One of the greatest party anthems EVER…I’m sure a lot of people laughed this one off. Classic album nonetheless. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance yet.
Caught this on the corner of Grant and Sutter (maybe?). I thought it was a pretty cool poster.
Apparently I’m years late with this but… I fell down the Vice rabbit hole the other day and came across a video that made me blush…even though I was at home…alone…and nobody else was around. This video and song has got me feeling some sort of way, I just don’t know what it is.
I don’t know how or where I came across Minus the Bear, but I downloaded their latest album (about a year ago) while stuck in a hotel room in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We listened to it quite a few times on that trip…but…any time I hear Infinity Overhead, I think of that hotel room. Anyway,..
Yes, I’ll be the first to say it – I discovered this band before anyone else did. And I’m proud of that fact. My friend Mike and I went to BB Kings in New York to see Slick Rick, Scarface & Goodie Mob in concert back in 2009 or 2010 and these guys from Boston,..
If you haven’t checked out Big KRIT yet, I’d highly recommend him (again). Definitely my favorite *new* rapper since maybe K’naan. If you’ve been around me any time within the past 2 (almost 3) years and asked me about what I’m listening to, I’m sure I’ve told you about this dude. And I’m sure you’ve ignored..
Just caught this on Vice’s music blog…sick video (reminds me of those days at The Wherehouse burnin through stacks and stacks of CDs). Great for the hip hop historian:
As a kid I spent countless hours in this fine establishment digging through the crates. I went in these places so often (the nearest one was in Reno, NV), that I knew I’d see 95% of what I’d find in the racks the previous week I was there. I knew exactly where to look for..
Looking forward to tomorrows commute…reading about one of Whitey Bulgers enforcers in ‘Street Soldier’ and the new Nickatina leaked… A great way to start the day. This definitely gets me in the mood:
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re not livin:
Another HOT one from Killer Mike & EL-P…helluva video Killer Mike “BIG BEAST” Music Video from thomas bingham director on Vimeo.
Somewhere around the year 2000, I kept hearing about this website ‘ebay’ and how you could find a lot of neat stuff on it for cheap. I used to collect rap CDs and would spend hours digging through CD stores trying to fill gaps in my collection. The first item I ever bought off ebay..
I was in San Francisco with my Grandpa Platt and I asked him to bring me to ‘The Wherehouse’ on Scott street…I know what was releasing and I saved up enough cash to pick it up…there I picked up another one of my all time favorites: Along with the CD came a bumper sticker and..
