GIMME DAT BEAT FOOOOOO
I'm fairly sure that when I die and go to heaven, heaven will be a funky place, and it will sound a lot like Pete Rock. When his first all-instrumental release Petestrumentals came out in 2001, I played it so many times I wore out the MP3s. I love everything he touches. Because everything he touches is so deeply sweet. Released just last week on CD: The Surviving Elements, a new collection of downbeat instrumentals derived from the same classic soul sources that fueled his 2004 release Soul Survivor 2. Am digging this mightily. Snip from the Amazon description: "Like Petestrumentals, The Surviving Elements is a testament to Pete Rock’s love of the groove; a homage to a craft endangered by saturation, sample clearance legislation and pop crossover appropriation." Link to album info. What's up with Pete Rock's website? It appears to be geb0rken. That's alright -- in funk heaven, there are no websites. Just grooves. WORD!
One half of the duo that makes up Gangstarr, Guru, has announced that he is embarking on a solo career and will drop a pair of new albums in 2005, according to Allhiphop.com.
The veteran rapper recently announced the launch of his own label called 7 Grand. "We have a new project, a new venture," said Guru. "The label is called 7 Grand and the project is called Guru 7.0." Guru, along with his new label partner Solar, are both excited about the venture and have already secured a distribution deal with Studio Distribution, who has also released projects for Freddie Foxxx, Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock and Marley Marl.
While Guru is pursuing solo ambitions, he also stated that him and DJ Premier were still a unit.
The first two projects being released on 7 Grand will be "Guru 7.0", as well as the fourth installment of his Jazzmatazz series.
Both projects are due out in 2005, but Guru 7.0 is slated for an April 19, 2005 release.
This is a classic picture of a classic artist. If you don't know who this is then get the fuck off my blog bitch! Anyway, I can't wait to hear some new shit from this fool. The joint that he dropped with Primo was some of the best I've heard in years from the Dolomite battlin' emcee. I remember back in '02 I saw him perform as a special guest along with Nice N Smooth and The Beatnuts back at a CMJ concert at Irving Plaza. The best part about the show was seeing him perform "How You Get a Record Deal." It still had just as much flava as it did when I first heard it on the ...Looks Like A Job For CD. I used to sit in the car ride up to camp with my walkman and play that shit from beginning to end. To this day I still know all the lyrics. Thanx Kane for helping me know waht real hip-hop was back then. Other titles that got much play on car rides that year were...Onyx's Bacdafucup, A Tribe Called Quest's Midnight Mauraders, and Pete Rock and CL Smooth's The Main Ingredient.
Since this is mostly a music blog today I thought that I would break it up a bit. Ever wonder what happen to the ultimate jackass, Johnny Knoxville???? Here's your answer...He is currently trying to get all these girls in the same bed at the same time. Way to go Johnny, I guess if you put your mind to it you can do anything, even 11 ugly girls. These chicks are the best example of sloppy barslores that I could find. Never judge a book by it's cover though, they could be nice...that is if they don't stink like The Cousins fish market. A picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case it was summed up in about 50.
Jim Rome is burning !!!!!! What we all wanna know is what the fuck is he burning from. Maybe he is really the kid that got around to all the dirty chicks at college. Maybe he still has a thumbnail up his ass from his freshman rush when he had to walk in a single file line with the other frat brothers. Or it could be that he is just pissed at the fact that the MILF hunter gets more ass than he ever will and looks similar. Ohhhhhhhh Snap! I know why...because his brother Sammy Hagar doesen't have to work anymore due to the Cabo Wabo sales. Plus he is a bitch-ass lightweight. Drink up fuckers.
