Discovered by firebrand rapper Sage Francis, the Sol.iLLaquists’ combustible live presence prompted the world renowned MC to take them along on two global tours. Steered by machine-gunning MC and Vocal Polyrhythmatician Swamburger, The Sol.iLLaquists achieve lift-off with the fervent virtuosity of MPC (Midi Production Center) whiz DiViNCi. Yet the urgency of this group’s approach is keenly tempered with the harmonic vibrance of Alexandrah’s soulful vocals and the spoken contemplation of Tonya Combs. This should be a great album concidering there was very little or no promotion for this. Look for it if you are a fan of Def Poetry with a mix of Digable Planets, and heavy drumkits.
I was visiting one of my favorite sites that I really wasn't gonna expose to everyone and thier mother, but this is just too ill. MF DOOM DUNKS... with the piping manufactured by everyones favorite office supply company "3M". They feature an embroidered doom logo from the MM Food album and the now famous doom mask on the tongue tag. Where do I get this crazy shit from????? KIXANDTHECITY is an online sneaker community/magazine dedicated to giving us all what we want. The EXCLUSIVES!!!!!! They are more circulated toward sneakers than clothing, but this is the spot to hit for all your new kix pix, info on those you so desperately want, and of course all the Air Jordan release dates. They won't tell you where exactly to get them, but then that would take the fun out of the whole sha-bang. What they will do tho, is give you the info on if it is an internet release only, which in turn, could save you a shitload of time, frustration, and best of all, money. Slide over and check 'em out. You don't have to thank me, just buy me some new laces or some shit.
Apparently we haven't heard the last from baseball legend Pete Rose. It is said that during the time he was trying to push his latest book, he concocked a plan that would ensure the value of his autographed memorabilia. He released a minimum of 30 baseballs that hold a minature confession that reads "i'm sorry i bet on baseball" followed by the hustler's signature. There could be as many as 300, but that is just heresay as far as we know. Either way, the Roseman keeps popping into our lives as if he dosen't want us to forget that we (the Rose fans) stuck behind him... and then all looked like complete assholes after he contradicted himself that day in '04. Whatever way you look at it, he fucked up, he belongs in the Hall of Fame as the greatest hitter that ever lived, but doesn't deserve it as far as he can be thrown. The movie with Tom Sizemore was dead on in my opinion, and if you get a chance, you should peep it. Rose fan or not.

*************VICE CITY STORIES**************
The lastest news on the new Rockstar release Vice City Stories is that the game will NOT be released for the PS2 home console. It will be exclusive only to the PSP and that thier upcoming game Bully will be pushed for the main system. No word on what they have planned for the PS3, but I'm sure if you do some research you could find some press on it. Peep mo!
In no way is the game bully, to be confused with the 2001 release of the movie with the same title.

>>>>>>The RED ...The Black ...and The Green<<<<<<
Veteran Brooklyn Hip Hop group X Clan appears to be more motivated than stagnated by the death of Professor X, as it prepares the group's new album, 'Return from Mecca,' due October 31. The LP, the group's third and first in almost fourteen years, will come just nine months after Prof. X died of complications from spinal meningitis. Leader Brother J, Ultraman Ra Hanna, ACL, DJ FatJack, Kumu M. Haynes, Master China, and Grand Arkutect Paradise plan to continue the squad's Afrocentric based movement through a new venture with Suburban Noize Records. 'Return from Mecca' will feature a revamped version of X Clan's signature ancestral and cultural teachings. The crew, originally comprised of The Rhythm Provider Sugar Shaft (who died of AIDS in 1995), Brother J, Prof. X., and Paradise the Arkutect, was apart of Blackwatch, a musical/cultural movement which included X Clan, Queen Mother Rage, Isis, YZ, and Daddy-O. The Clan espoused the views of militants like Malcolm X, Huey Newton and Clarence 13X, moving dance crowds simultaneously. The group's 1990 debut 'To the East, Blackwards' was followed in 1992 by 'Xodus.' Both albums peaked at # 11 on Billboard's Hip Hop/R&B charts. The Clan split at one point in the nineties and Brother J formed Dark Sun Rider, releasing one LP. If the new LP is anything close to what Xodus was, then we can guarantee that the movement will awaken the spirits that be and flow back to east my brother, to the east!

Catch A Beatdown...Collective, that is.
This just in....BeatdownCollective and the staff are working on a greatest under the radar series from Upstate NY artists. There will be some well-known joints on there and also some exclusive (only for this cd) type shit. Make sure you quit smoking before then so you can keep up with the lyrics while your ghostrapping your heart out in that piece of shit bucket you call a vehicle.
The Other POPE.
Pope is back in the studio working on his latest. This is sure to be a more underground based album. Giving it that "NY" feel will be Jack N. Vinyl on all production. How did he get us to do pretty much his whole project???? If you had to ask, then you couldn't afford it. Be up in the lighthouse looking out for this release. No name yet, but that's just us being lazy fucks.
Nike has begun to release thier '07 line of SB Dunks. I really don't know how they'd outdo thierselves after last year, but I'm sure they will find a way. Check out some of the new samples. For those who can't afford the real deal you could always order from an ebay seller with a China address, (way bootnick) or simply buy the minature collectibles that are on ebay right now.
looking for the hot gear to match dose shits, slip n slide on ova to check out The Hundreds new fall collection. They specialize in hard to find colors that are linked with on another. Superhot!

Swagger.com has teamed up with the Wu to release a series of limited edition tees, hats and other accessories. Peep this out.
Apparently L.L. Cool J. is in the studio working on a new album collabo with rapper 50 Cent. Maybe if we are lucky we can hear more garbage beats from Scott Storch on this project. Oh, and if we are truly blessed they may have that cornball Usher sing a hook for this sad idea of an album. It will probably sell a shitload of copies, but the people buying them aren't hip-hop, hell, they aren't even rap fans. They're just a bunch of people who got this shit fed down thier throat till they've convinced themselves that it tastes good. As far as I'm concerned G-Unit is deader that Jim Nabors and L.L. should quit while he is ahead. Read more on this dumb shit.
New York's Finest were kept busy by the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, busting actor-rapper Mos Def outside Radio City Music Hall during the show.
Def (aka Dante Smith, 32, of Brooklyn) was staging an impromptu performance of his song "Katrina Clap," which criticizes President Bush's response to the hurricane last year.
Police said his entourage rolled up in a flatbed truck and were "inciting the crowd" outside the VMA venue. After the driver refused to comply with a request to move, Def was issued a summons for "operating a sound reproduction device without a permit," according to an NYPD spokeswoman.
The incident happened about 10 p.m. "He was free in plenty of time to see the awards show," a police source said. "It was real quick - just a summons."
King, meanwhile, got his summons for trespassing.
The 33-year-old Angeleno and sometime Howard Stern guest has made a career out of crashing awards ceremonies. He was snatched off the stage after grabbing the mic and promoting his Web site during the live broadcast.
Can you believe these assholes? damn.
