"The world is so fucked up
People don’t seem to care anymore
People seem to have distanced themselves from other people’s problems, they have been programmed not to care!
Politicians are corrupt...So many companies are corrupt and taking excessive profits in certain sectors.......and we keep allowing this shit to happen
There are 1 billion plus people living in extreme poverty. You know what that is? You don’t know if your getting your next meal, no shelter, no medical. You have no chance of hustling your way out of it!
We have been programmed to not give a shit about these people!
Well I have woken up and Im not turning a blind eye anymore!
Im not playing the game anymore. Our Company CEO’s and politicians want us to keep our heads down and not ask questions. Not demand the truth
they don’t want us to care, they have trained us to turn a blind eye!
Because they control us and profit from us this way!
to push back at them questions and threatens their lifestyles.
Children are dying everyday from hunger. Its fucked up, its wrong and I am angry
Im not going to shut up or give up – fuck the system, its wrong.
wake up we are being used!
Innocent children are dying each day.... we need to shout out to companies, politicians that we aren't playing their games anymore
We are waking up to their lies and deceitful dealings
Im angry, Im going to make a difference and no one is going to stop me
Join me if your tired of being used and manipulated
Make this world fair for everyone"

I really like this track, Im really looking forward to some new Chip. According to his Twtter he is prepping a project called Tell Ya Friends so.........Tell ya friends about his dopeness. Wale was ehh on this to me
Chip Tha Ripper – 25 Wives Lyrics
Posted by LouisArtisan at 7:03 PM
The Roots have an album coming out December 6th!!!!
Tracklist via 2dope & SlangRap
undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
2. Make My f. Big K.R.I.T.
3. One Time
4. Kool On
5. The Jump
8. I Remember
9. Tip The Scale

And just to let it be known I fugg with the boys at Rap Genius now, so the FAT majority of all song posts will have the explained lyrics attached to em. So just check the bottom of the posts usually they'll be there.
In addition, check out Rap Genius in general because long before this I would visit them frequently to understand certain lyrics (especially Lupe's) and it actually did that and more. Even what I thought I knew, I quickly found out I didnt know much. The site is great so, go there create an account, and do some explaining of your own.
Til then Im swaggin
Posted by LouisArtisan at 9:38 PM
I've been feening for some new 2 Chainz too lol, this is my effing favorite rapper right now man, fuck with the homie.
UPDATE: T.R.U. REALigion (a Gangsta Grillz project) is set to drop November 1st!! I'm Ready ._.
Hit the jump for the mini-vid series by 2 Chainz!!!
Posted by LouisArtisan at 9:31 PM
I'm really feeling Tip's addition to this track yo, shit is jumping. I've heard a bunch, cause hello? I run a blog here, but this is by far my favorite aside from the original of course.
T.I. – Niggas In Paris Remix Lyrics
Posted by LouisArtisan at 9:15 PM
Im just gonna post the vid's description because it's TOO DOPE:
When rigor mortis occurs within a corpse, its muscles tighten, causing the body to become stiff and very difficult to move. The chemical reaction makes all blood gravitate to the areas of the body that are closest to the ground, leaving colorful spots as an indication of life that once existed. As the soul escapes, toxins remain causing the corpse to rot and decompose. This is the fate that Kendrick Lamar has deemed onto the competition, more commonly known as your favorite rapper. Amen!
Death can be so beautiful at times. Boasting bars as mad as Marilyn Manson, one grim rapper emerges to hold hip hop ransom. Hailing from Compton, Los Angeles, one of America's most neglected graveyards, Kendrick yields his sickle (ballpoint pen) to pry open the caskets of lyricism, musicianship, and tradition. The emcee, once known as K. Dot, hence displays an heir of irony in his verses, murdering the fraudulent with the same weapon used for shedding light on realness.
Section 80 was released in the first week of July and continues to receive steady rotation from barbershop stereos to iPods on college campuses. A clear game changer, his debut album is dynamic in the sense that it brings forth the story of a generation incubated in the years of Reaganomics, while projecting the rebellious voice of a youth discontented by society's harsh inflictions.
Directors, The ICU caught up with Kendrick Lamar at various locations throughout New York City to shoot this highly anticipated video off of Section 80. Accompanied by a triumphant three piece brass section, this funeral procession is not a mournful event, but rather a triumphant proclamation for a resurrecting art form. Chuuuch!
Posted by LouisArtisan at 8:57 PM
Im pretty sure he wanted to build some more hype for the apparent debut album that is in the works so we have this ladies and gents.
Posted by LouisArtisan at 8:49 PM
I actually feel good about posting this because when a beef gets squashed in Hip-Hop its always a GREAT thing because no one should get hurt over silly disputes because we know what they can amount to RIP all the lives taken by Hip-Hop disputes.

Soulfully, Me ends a slight hiatus by dropping an inspired freestyle over Little Brother's Away From Me. Ventilation is Part 1 of the 9th Wonder Series that Soul will be doing. Each week Soul will drop a freestyle over an classic 9th Wonder beat to build anticipation for his new LP entitled Sincerely, Soul coming out in early 2012. Also, Soulfully, Me will be performing on BET's 106 and Park October 26, 2011. Be sure to tune in for that soulful episode!

Posted by LouisArtisan at 4:53 PM
1st off, FUCK! these stupid ass videos have been giving me trouble for like an hour, the embed code is stupid as shit Im mad as fuck so I just put the entire thing for the fucks and it works -.- but watever. Basically the cyphers were pretty weak, but I liked Jay Rock's little verse. The others were mehh, and it was so mehh Mike Epps lil rap blended in well.
But there is hope, check the other lineups:
Cypher 3: Estelle, Nitty Scott, Laecre, & Saprano
Cypher 4 (MMG): Wale, Pill, Stalley, Meek Mill, & Rick Ross
Cypher 5 (my personal fav): Big K.R.I.T., MGK, Kendrick Lamar, Tech N9ne, B.o.B.
Cypher 6: Lady of Rage, Blind Fury, Dom Kennedy, & Skillz
Cypher 7 (Shady): Yelawolf, Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9, Eminem
and Oh I dont like the beat either.
