Big K.R.I.T. - Live From The Underground [Artwork]

I've been a big KRIT fan ever since the 1st time I heard Krit Wuz Here and I've never looked back. I'm really excited about his debut album and the artwork furthers said excitement. Pretty creative, what do you guys think? 


MGK - Wild Boy (Remix) [ft 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Mystikal, French Montana, & Yo Gotti] (Video)

This video is too live! Kellz really rages like he says he does and the Steve-O prank omg I would've lost it man. Dope vid tho, lots of energy

Political Cartoon of the Week: Trickle Down Effect

1st off, let's see how long I can keep this installment of the blog going lol. But I thought this to be very humorous and truthful and those are the 2 elements of a great political cartoon.


Ab-Soul - SOPA [ft ScHoolboy Q]

Here goes another one off of Control System and I personally cannot wait for the May 11th release date.


Nas - Daughters (Artwork)

Single drops on May 1st, Life Is Good drops July 17th


Wiz Khalifa - Work Hard, Play Hard (Lyric Video)

Here goes the lyric vid, just in case there was something you didn't catch.

Wiz Khalifa - Work Hard, Play Hard

(prod. by Stargate & Benny Blanco)

So here it is, saw the Artwork a bit earlier. But the 1st single off of O.N.I.F.C. (Only Nigga In First Class) is available now. With the Stargate production it seems as if he's reverting back to the Rolling Papers sound and that's a shame because Taylor Allderdice went over so well. That's the industry for ya. 


Brian Dawkins retires

Today one of the best players from my childhood has retired today. He was one of the hardest working, most spirited, emotional players I've ever see hit the field. He was a beast, an animal, and an outright force on the field that earned his respect. Happy trails, B. Dawkins. We'll always remember you, for your intensity if for nothing else. Here's a lil highlight vid to show the kind of player he was:


Madden NFL 13 gets a new announcer

Although my interest for the Madden franchise has waned, I'm pretty excited about Gus Johnson not being the play-by-play guy anymore. I swear there's no way you can be THAT excited about a 6 yard gain. Also when you add the fact that his co-commentator, Chris Collinsworth, couldn't be more of his opposite. Jim Nantz & Phil Simms, the CBS broadcasting duo, are set to replace them.

And if you aren't following the little cover vote bracket thing, Cam Newton & Calvin Johnson are in the finals and the voting is still live until 4/25 so go be heard.


Ice Berg - Keep It Burning [ft Gold Rush]

Another one from Berg?!?! Let's go boy, he's on his way. Strictly 4 The Streets 3 is on the way.


Wiz Khalifa - Work Hard, Play Hard (Artwork)

Ice Berg - The Good, Bad, Ugly

Wait, whoa, Has Mr. I'm On My Way finally made it? I've been hearing MMG rumors about him for months but no confirmation. He's one of the better street rappers down here in Miami and deserves a shot to at least be heard because he's better than a lot of people already. He's well known in the 305 but he wants the world to know his name. I support you bro.

Strictly 4 The Streets 3 is coming soon


Chuck Inglish - WRKOUT [Official Mixtape]

Meek Mill - Dreamchasers 2 [Artwork]

Nice lil artwork here, the sequel to the tape is now slated to be the debut album. Also, the album has been pushed back to May 7th.


Dammmnnn Bruhh: Delonte West Edition (Video)

Pretty sure this move is on page 7 of the Most Disrespectful Gestures handbook. What I'm saying is this a pretty well-known sign of disrespect and there is no way I'm standing for that. Let's just say that Gordon Hayward has a lot of restraint.

Sad Improper Black Guy - Damn Bruh Not My Ear


Ab-Soul - Pineal Gland (Video)

Damn man, Ab never disappoints. I'm stoked for this new project Control System (5-11-12) and this video is entirely too dope props to Aplus Filmz


Mystikal BACK?! Naw

So after his 6-year stint in Prison, "the man right chea" has seemed to have violated his probation by partaking in a classic case of domestic abuse. This violates his 5-year probation and will send the newly signed YMCMB artist back to the slammer for 3 months starting May 14th.

NCAA Football 13's cover is ready

Not sure why they couldn't just allow the kid to have his own shine, why add Barry? I haven't been following the game's development close this year so I have no idea why, but I thought it'd be better with RGIII by his lonesome


Theophilus London - All Around The World (Video)

Another track off of Timez Are Weird These Days gets the visual treatment.


Nas - Another Black Girl Lost

Call me old school, but I like the 1st version better.

The 2Pac Hologram (Video)

I just realized I never posted this, but I must say that this is some real crazy shit yo. It's super dope even though I know people will kill it like they do everything. Although what this really had me thinking about was this Project Blue Beam thing my boy told me of last year. That's just one link, google it and do your own research. Just to expand your knowledge, if for nothing else. 


ESPN's new Michael Jordan Ad (Video)

This commercial is sadly a reality for 3,000+ people but isn't it just the funniest thing haha. Everywhere is just always disappointed to see you that's so fucked up man, but I'm laughing regardless.


Chevy Woods - U.S.A.

(prod. by Young Jerz)

Kanye West's "Theraflu" gets a new look

New Artwork

So it seems Theraflu was not happy with the way their likeness was used & portrayed by Yeezy so he ended up removing their name from the song and likeness from the artwork. There is the new cover & the new song is "Way Too Cold". Now lets all pretend we give a damn......for Theraflu's sake.

UPDATE: Here's a video recap

Andrew Bynum makes me lol & smh [Video]

Now just watch those 2 videos and think that he's the guy that the Lakers have to rely on to win a championship this year. He's hilarious, but he hurts LA with his antics. I swear he's just clowning now, he knows how good he is & he knows the Lakers cant get rid of him. He has turned a bit Hollywood to put it in better terms. 

It seems that Andrew Bynum is the only person who can stop Andrew Bynum. He takes himself out of the game more than any player or defensive scheme. He doesn't get in foul trouble, he gets in technical foul trouble. But he's our knucklehead and I'm down for the ride, interesting to see where this thing goes. At least we know that he's becoming a great player, 30 rebounds last night in a win over the Spurs. I can live with the clowning.


UPDATE: Q-Tip signs to GOOD

He was basically in GOOD already, but now the papers have made it official. I'm in favor of the move and just want good music (no pun) to be come out of it. I really enjoyed his last solo project The Renaissance and his set to release another album entitled The Last Zulu as early as next year.

UPDATE: Q-Tip sounds off on the signing on the Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg show


illest Thing of The Week: Blake Don't Care [Video]

If Blake is trying to take out all of the NBA's bigmen one-by-one with these nasty posterizing powerhouse dunks, he can go ahead and cross OKC off the list cause mannnnn.

Here's the video of Q's freestyle sesh on Hot97 with Flex. These are actually some reallly good freestyles, you can tell it was off top and not structured a raw fun rhyme sesh and I enjoyed it. The above video he raps over E-40's "Function" instrumental.

Hit the jump for the second part of the freestyle over Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "Skinz"

J. Cole - Sideline Story [Video]

Cole drops another visual from the album, check it out. Oh and while we're on it, damn J. Cole sucks at basketball. Hd us all tricked for years then comes out and misses point blank layups in the Celebrity All-Star game. C'mon Cole.


Dammmnnnn Bruhhh: Finger Rolls

So I decided to start another segment here on the blog to go along with "Funniest Thing of The Week", "illest Thing of The Week", & "Great Moments in Pause History". It's gonna be this new meme that me & my boys were thinking of. It started around Spring Break and resulted in this: Sad Improper Black Guy. Vince is the first person to get the Damnnnn Bruhhh treatment, enjoy lol.

Sad Improper Black Guy - Damn bruh i ain't even much got no finger roll


Theophilus London - Big Spender [ft A$AP Rocky] (Artwork)

Interesting artwork, I'd say it was...flashy. I've been looking forward to this collab for quite some time. Seems the world will get it on April 15th.

French Montana - Everything's A Go [Official Video]

As I mentioned in a previous post, over my 5 month long hiatus I have become a huge French Montana fan. Because for every Kendrick Lamar you need a French Montana. I love the hardcore, street, hype, violence, & drug references ahh just brings me back to my roots in the hood ya know. But this is one of my favorite tracks from Mister 16: Casino Life and its seems he is working on the second one. Also be on the lookout for Coke Boys 3.


2012 XXL Freshman Mixtape

This is my 1st time catching a look at this year's XXL Freshman and man this is a weak class. There is no really big talent on that entire page. I honestly believe that they're putting their streak of creating big names on the line with this class. I've had my encounters with most of the artists on here and if I were a betting man I'd say that MGK would shine the brightest. Although, over the hiatus I have become a big French Montana fan, I don't think he'd garner the biggest buzz for a variety of reasons. But he's a niche rapper and I believe he's cool with that and I like em for it. Also Roscoe Dash, if he continues to swag on hooks could stay for a while. As for the rest "I don't even much know bruh".

Carmelo Anthony DOES IT....TWICE [Video]

So I'm chilling in my living area, fresh out of church.....shouts out to Jesus, watching the game and the Knicks are just SMACKing the Bulls. I mean 21 pt leads in the 1st quarter and Melo is going off. But as you know by now, nothing comes by easy with the Knickerbockers. They fully blow the lead and D. Rose puts on a show in the 3rd quarter that only an MVP who sat because he had the AIDS can. Not to mention JR Smith was throwing up & missing every pass he received. But but for some reason the Knicks did not die as they usually do in these situations. 

They stuck in there with great Defense oddly enough. But even though they were fighting back they couldn't capitalize on Offense so the game seemed to be over when Luol Deng went to the line with a chance to seal the game. But somehow he manages to take out his anger towards his barber on the rim and misses both shots. Then not only does he choke, D. Rose re-experiences his own FT struggles and misses both. And I should add that somewhere in between there Novak missed a three to tie the game that went in & out the basket about 4 times. But then it was Melo Mania. So epic that it made the boy come out of a 5 month hiatus of posting.

A Day in The Life of The Fly BACK!

thanks to Melo.
