This book captures the evolution of the hip hop phenomenon from the streets of New York City to the pages and screens of the NYC media culture. Photos of groups like RUN-DMC, Beastie Boys, and Furious Five in the early years, along side De La Soul, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, and even the best coast pioneers N.W.A.
The new Nike Air Max BW model is scheduled to release in September. They are rocking the multi-colored design including grey, brown, white, and black. They are constructed from a combination of leather and mesh which allow your feet to breathe easily.
Deejay Premier got a unreleased project (beat disk) that just came out.. I gave it a whirl and for some reason I really wasn't to hype after hearing it.. All due respect to the king, but i don't know something was missing for me.. But i still have to give the brother his shines.. So here is one that caught my attention..
Track: "Original Represent"
Dj Babu from the Beat Junkies got a follow up mixtape dropping soon called "Duck Season 3". Here is a track from the project featuring the gangsters of grime M.O.P. and they sound like they really want to make a statement in Killa Cali...
Track: "Dearly Departed" Feat M.O.P.

I haven't done one of these in a while so it's only right to hit you off correct to get your weekend started.. This is a classic track coming out of my own personal stash called Bon Bon Vie from the group T.S. Monk.. If this doesn't get those toes stompin, and them hands clapping, then you got some serious problemo's on your hands...
Track: "Bon Bon Vie"
Here is the new project by Madlib & J Rocc of the Beat Junkies this entire project is dedicated to J Dilla. The project is called "Madlib The Beat Konducta Vol. 5. Dil Cosby Suite" I have to say this is a solid album of production at it's finest with a splash of Dilla voice samples to make it all come together.. Here is the first track off the project called "For My Mans"..

Okay this is the new Alife Shell Toe.. This rim retails for about $110.00 bucks.. But what bothers me so much is how these new sneaker companies just straight up rip the classics and really pay no homage.. If you look close they even went as far as keeping the classic "ollie pad" that made the real original classic Vision Street Wear shoe famous for as well as being one of the first strongest built skate shoes out at that time... But the thing is now it is cool to wear a A Life, when it was a automatic hood dis to be wearing the classic Vision Street Wear back in the day.. This 80's shit is getting to crazy if you ask me....
You remember Onyx?? Well they got a new project out. I gave it a listen and i had to say, it still is the same old grimy, gun talking, mashing you up, playing no games Onyx... Here is a track off the project called "See You In Hell Pt. 2"
See you in the bank,

Okay by the time you read this I should be leaving with the brother from Hip-Hop Battlefield on a 7 wing jet (tomarrow morning 5:30am) to the Sucka Free, (San Francisco) to meet up with the Amen Raw of Hip-Hop Culture Afrika Bam.. So when i get back, I should have some exclusive footage for ya'll... When I mean exclusive, i mean something worth to watch, not no live performance shit, but some real backstage antics. Some shit the average cat doesn't get to see.. (Hopefully) Anyway, before i go i want to make sure i got all my music lined up for the flight.. So i posted up 2 albums that i'm taking on the road with me to get it started on the good foot.....

Ran across this one today and thought i share.. This is a clip of M.F. Doom at the 2008 Rock The Bells San Bernadino Show. But to bad it isn't Doom rocking, and see how the crowd starts to react to the phoney... The sad thing is this is not the first time Doom has pulled this type of behavior on his fans..
