Pa..Pa...Pa.. Premier (New Sh*t)

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..

Track: "Original Represent"

New Joint...

Jay Dilla's little brother Illa J came up on some of his brothers beats and he just dropped a new joint. It's called "We Here"..I'm not going to drop my two cents on the track, but i like the production..
Rest In Power Dilla,


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....

New Angry Sh*t....

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,

More M.F. Tom Fooliery....

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..

New Joint....

The new Elzhi Album "Preface" just cameout. For the most part its cool.. I personally think there is a little bit to much hype on it. But it's still a cool listen for all the Detroit fans out their..
Track: "Transitional Joint"
