DJ Premier has recently started his own label called YEAR ROUND. He has started to sign the artists that he thinks will make this label a success. Blaq Poet HOTSHIT* (former Screwball member) is among one of the first he signed. You may remember him from the underground classics "h.o.s.t.y.l.e.", "on point" and the "Y2K" cd. His new single "We Goin' Ill" dropped last week and is selling off the shelves. Another artist Primo was interested in, Big Shug, who has just dropped his freshman LP "Who's Hard?". The album almost sounds like a classic Gang Starr album, but without the Guru. It's jam packed with songs that will bring and end to this mediocre shit we are so custom to on the radio. Thank God. Fucka Radio Playlist...AND FUCKA WEAK DJ THAT THINKS HE'S A VET!

If you are looking for some new music from some artists you've never heard before peep this shit out. The Black Milk album was something that I put on while I was scanning my emails and deleting the junk. I thought that it was just a mixtape from some unknowns, and that I would be deleting that soon too. To my surprize after listening to the first few songs I was scanning all of them hoping for more fire, but then the album kinda died out toward the end. Still though, the production on the album was fasinating and I'm looking forward to hearing some of these instrumentals. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS.
"Hey...hand me that piano."
Our favorite comedian George Carlin is back with his new special Life Is Worth Losing airing November 5th on HBO original programming. Guess I know what I'm doing that Saturday night. The link above contains a new poem sure to make you piss your dickies. Any one of his books are great bathroom reading material for you or your inconciderate friends that always happen to feel the need to drop a doogan at your place.
BLOG VS. CHEF.
Raekwon is set to release his long awaited followup to the Only Built For Cuban Links LP. I'm only calling this the followup to that because from the sound of it, he's on that shit again. What shit you ask???? That gritty, grimey, ghetto gully, Mutumbo sneaker under the bridge shit. I'm goin to guess that what he has on that table is not 4 Lbs. of tobacco. His new label Ice Water Inc. will most likely be the centerpiece of this album, including the usual, drugs, hoodrats, and snitchbashing. It seems that more and more people are taking thier fate into thier own hands, and building a label, and putting up most of the lucci for thier projects. Good for them...it's about time that these fools stopped losing money that they don't have to. Sure they won't get the promotion that a major can give, but as long as it's hot the radio jocks will take care of that. Rae...a little sidenote from me if you are reading this...make sure the album lives up to the hype...or your career is ooooover...ova.
THE HUNDREDS... WEBSITE OF THE MONTH. SNUFF SAID.

First off, I just wanna say that when he played for The Raiders, he was nasty. Nasty, meaning that I knew that he was an above average player, but couldn't figure out why. Now I know why...I also now know what a fucking retard Romanowski is. Not only is he a giant clutz that is mad about his popularity now-a-daze, but he is ruining any chances of getting into The Hall of Fame by blowing up his own spot and taking others with him. Is this just a cunning attempt to clean the skeletons in his closet?? Could it be that he is stirring up all of this to sell copies his new book????(obviously) Maybe if he is lucky he will end up on next season's episode of the Surreal Life starring Sinead O'Connor, Sammy "the bull" Gravano, and the guy who played "Doofy" in Scary Movie. Come to think of it, he looks a lot like my cousin Tucker, I haven't seen in ages. His nose itches because he sniffed away his septum. bru-bu-bu-broow.
CHECK YA ZIP CODE....nukka.
From one quick glance you'd think that you were looking at the backside of a superresort, one that is all inclusive and very expensive at that. The last thing that you would think is that you were looking at rapper 50 Cent's cribo. Purchased from, and previously owned by Mike Tyson, this gated community estate boasts a backyard waterfall, an indoor club, raquetball court, and narcissistic paintings of himself all over the building. The sad part for his fans is that this is FAR from the hood. So I have a question for you???? Is he keeping it real???? It's actually a trick question, there is no possible way he can be. That is unless the ghetto delivers. Sorry 50, but you can't convince me.
IN THE HOOD (yet another 50 diss)
REGGIE NOBLE IS AT IT AGAIN.
Redman has recently finished his new album entitled Red Gone Wild Thee Album. Some cameo appearances from Ludacris, Ghostface, and Icarus. Scheduled release date is set for Nov. 15th. Peep the preview...What I'm Here For (song...no corny djs screaming)
This is by far the best song I've heard off the album to date.
SHAOLIN STYLE VS. THE UNDERGROUND
Everywhere you go, boards, blogs, chate rooms, word on the street, is that this is the must buy album of the year. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this release really sucks...not as bad as the GZA and Muggs project, but almost as bad. The beats are very mediocre and this also sounds like it was thrown together. Some of the emcees don't even sound like themselves, and I will be the first to scream it. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY...or your bandwidth for that matter. Actually, the download may be worth it, but seriously, this is one of the worst anticipated releases to ever come out of the Wu camp. That logo dosen't really mean shit now. I remember when you could but any record that had the WU symbol flipped every which way, and know that it was totally worth your money. Now it seems that everyone that uses (aside the original members) is just ruining the face value of the 36 chambers. Here's the best track on the album in my eyes...and ears. R.A. the Rugged Man and J-Live (mp3)
Pablo Francisco make fun of clubbing in NYC. (video)

The new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm has been underway for about three weeks now and each episode gets funnier than the last. At first I have to admit, I was snoozin on this show, but after watching it for a couple of weeks, I'm loving the simple everyday comedy. A new episode premiers Oct. 30th... tune in and find out whats so funny.

Chillin' in the studio...just another late night... me... some warm brandy... and blunts of sour deez. Beats are getting broken...I'm running out of ink...and my eyes look like I should be working at a fish market on Canal St. Live, no Memorex...just memories...of when hip-hop was actually worth following. Keep your ears peeled for the new Refried Redneck Remixes due out late November.
Something actually worth buying.
....COME OUT AND PLAYYYYYYY!!!!!
Rockstar Games has done it once again. They are set to release (out of nowhere), a game that is bound to become a classic among cult followers of The Warriors. The new special edition DVD has also been released and includes 10-20 minutes of bonus footage including comic clips, and a cast commentary. A MUST for any fan of this flick. Ev Boogie knows...late night dorm room sessions with Vinyl, catlogs n spoofs... and we can't forget IJAY.
ME FIRST MOTHERFUCKER, I'M THE COACH!!
Not only is (Money) Mike Tice having a shitty season, now he has other problems. Apparently some of his squad were having a little too much fun boozing on a recent luxury cruise. Sources say that at least 17 Vikings players were actually working overtime (as players) and had a large public orgy on the ship. If anyone has any photos or picture of this please send them to me direct...not only would they be great to break out for Xmas eve dinner, the cops would like to be able to identify the players who were getting extensive slowneck. Remember...the answers always NO! --david spade
Well don't just stand there...Kick a Freestyle.
Not sure how many of you know this, but tonite on almost all of the local news channels I saw a story about the kid who got killed outside The Hudson Duster. One of the bouncers involved may go to jail for a few years...and on a sad sidenote, The Duster may be closing it's doors for good. Read more here. Damn. NOW where we gonna have our shows? Lark Tavern is way too small and all the other bars around here just suck anyway. Who the fuck am I kidding...I haven't went to a show in 3 months. Nyay. lates.

After letting us all in on the secret that "George Bush doesn't care about black people"...his albums sales suddenly slowed down then came to an abrupt halt. I guess that he really didn't count on any of his white fans taking that to heart. And just for a sidenote...this wasn't about black or white, it was about a disaster that no one (not even congress) was prepared for. I'm surprised that some of those people even stayed to try to ride out the storm...to all the victims of Hurricane Katrina, I salute you...and to those still at the bars drinking...have one for me, after all you are on your 100th beer concidering that you've been on a 1 month drinking binge, you haven't been home yet, and the worse part is... your dog is probably pregnant.
One of our favorite DJ's, Dirty Harry is back with his latest installment. Nas Legends Vol. 1.
This mixtape is dope from start to finish and is an essential addition to any Nas collection. J-Love has released his series of Nas Legends Cds, and they aren't even worth comparing to this disc. Consisting of all Nas' classics and a few exclusives, this is the way it should be done, from a true soul survivor. I wear chains that excite the F.E.D.S. too. Crystal dogtags to be exact.
-----SINGLE OF THE WEEK-----
Forreal, this joint is still just as hot as it was when I bought it. The beat is bangin' and it prompted me to break out "Da Fat Gangsta" CD. Don't sleep on this one, it was, and still is ahead of it's time. Not to mention that it is 10 times better than anything he has recently released. Buy it, Download it, Get it...whatever it takes.
Debra Messing...The only other redhead worth noticing. She actually may surpass Julianne Moore for the dopest redhead on televison. ROoOaor.!
Diggin' In The Eighths
Madlib a.k.a. Loopdigga a.k.a. Beat Conductor a.k.a. DJ Rels a.k.a. Quasimoto a.k.a. Yesterday's New Quintet has a new album out. It's 11 tracks of heat with no vocals...that's right no vocals. Some of these tracks will be released seperately for the 7inch series that Stonesthrow has been doing for a while now. A DIVINE IMAGE-----(audio from the album) Enjoy your free sneak peek and make sure you go out and buy his shit so that he can keep doing what he does for us.
...a new update with video (coming soon). till then playaz. UNO!

Just a quickie on a flip n fuck for this week... Here's yours truly rockin the custom M. James Swarovski Astros '05 season hat with the National League Kent Jersey. M. James are the official joints...the first to do it...the right way to do it...all others are just the M.O.'s ...
Rhinestones are for suckers.
"kICk IN tHE dOOR"
Wrexclusive shit to come...off the soon to be released Don Smog-Puncture Wound Promo...it will contain some lost songs, exclusive freestyles, and remixes that will not be released on the album.
It will also be very hard to find concidering we are only releasing 5-10 copies...the spread of this will mostly rely on dubs...but you guys should know plenty about that you pirates of the music sea.
OUR DRUNKEN HERO...
I still can't believe that this dude is gone...It's almost about that time when he would've been dropping an new album. I hope that RZA saves some of his acapellas for real cats, and not make the mistake that Diddy did with B.I.G.'s unheard verses. Damn.
They always say that most Part 2's are never even close to as good as the first. I beg to differ cause I'm a bit deffer than helen keller's iron made her.
D-Block's Peer Pressure II (snipper) is one of the hottest joints on the net. The mixtape grew on me, will it grow on you? Also the new Clinton Sparks n Clipse pt. 2 is very well put together. I respect that...but a little inside note to Clinton...I AM FAMILIAR, you can get rid of that sample now. I'm sure you know enough people that can give you hot drops. DO IT...............DO IT.

"WHAT THE FUCK you mean theres no Coke!!??!???,
There's Gotta be Coke!!!"
Well if you haven't heard it yet, your gonna hear it from me. Kate "da snoblower" Moss has been dropped, fired, or whatever you wanna call it from all the companies that she worked for. These companies include, but are not limited to: Burberry, Chanel, and Christian Dior. Apparently her close friend Sharon Stone has come to her rescue, and is defending her in a recent article. I never thought that she looked that great anyway, and I'm sure that you will agree. This picture is a rare shot of her actually looking attractive and not like a coke head. The thing that I can't believe is that no one caught it up until now. All models look like twigs and have the makeup that makes them looked cracked out, but maybe that's why she was so good, they could put an 8 ball in her dressing room and cancel the makeup specialist for the day. It's a lot cheaper to spend $125 for a day than $125 an hour. The other thing that bothers me is that if this was just your average girl, she would be locked up and forced into rehab for her "problem"or "addiction", and still be stuck in jail after the fact. Why is it then that when a movie star, musician, or model/actress does it, they go away to get "help" and come out a hero. What a fucked up world we live in. The next time your are reading the latest issue of OK mag, or watching Pat "pain killer" O'brien on Cracksess Hollywood, think to yourself that you and me are not any different than any of these fools, we just hang around a different crowd, got to different parties, and have different numbers on our bank statements. Other than that the only thing that seperates "us" from "them" is that "they" are in the public eye and "we" have yet to get there.
Smile back wiggas.
$100 on Oakland to win.
There are actually two brand new movies that I can't wait to go see in theater...Two For The Money starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey is about an upscale sports gambling ring that....well you should go see it too. and...
"Domino Muthafucka!!!" ---Ice Cube Boyz in The Hood
If you are into the whole bounty hunter thing... Dog the Bounty Hunter, or Midnight Run, you should go and check this movie...The cinematography is seriously serious. It has and all-star cast including Christopher Walken and Lucy Lu. Pirated copies of the screener are already circulating around the net and Mickey Rourke is no joke in whatever movie he plays in. (i.e. Barfly, Spun) This is def a movie I will be going to see...I never said I was gonna pay for it...I just said I was gonna see it. So I got an idea check this... I'll catch Two For The Money...pay for the first and then sneak into Domino, or vice versa, it depends on who I roll with and how I'm feeling. One thing is for sure, you can'y do THIS in the city. When it comes to great movies I'm always feeling thrifty...hence the large popcorn and soda w/ free refills...all day long.
