Rare video of The Opposition (Shaz Illyork and Spit Gemz) blazing the mic at a recent house party. Watch how people bug the fuck out toward the end when Gemz grabs it. I miss shit like this... house parties are where it's at.

Grab their CD from on of my previous posts here. Link

Preorder the new "G13" shirt here. shipping Dec 30th

A message from Raz...


It began as a regular night in Upstate NY with a few good friends. After much stimulation of the mind the ideas started to flow. We went back and forth on ways to bring this exclusive culture we enjoyed so much to the common marketplace.

We initially started with a huge blown up picture of one of our exclusive nuggets on a Shurt. When it was worn around NYC it got so much attention and inquiry we had to develop this idea fully. After many more sessions of mind stimulation among friends and chronisseurs we came up with a way to brand our strains of exclusive marijuana on a t-shirt.

"Be Exclusive” started by only burning the finest on the planet. Bringing that culture into the fashion industry is where we stand now. This is a truly exclusive piece of clothing with a limited production of 420 and a custom number assigned to each Shurt. So support the cause, rep your culture and get your own exclusive Tree Shurt today.

Stay Up,
Tree Shurts

They recently released a limited edition MIRK Grind Tree Shurt with album presale purchase. Inquire via the site for those. They are superlimited and Mirk's album doesn't drop till Feb.
Check out previously released designs on Clone shirts as different colorways.
Originals are much different than the clones. They are less in price and of the same great quality as well. Check the tree hats as well which fit better than any other fitted. Shouts out to Grassroots, Raz, Mike B., the tree bunnys, and the rest of the heads I met down at the HQ.
I will be grabbing another fitted for sure.
They linked up with Method Man at the Wu Tang show and check out Mr. Meth setting off the tour with the Upstate Trees hat. I want to personally thank you Meth... for always taking good care of your fans and followers.



on to the music... Crazy new shit, you know how I do. This is the only place you need to come for the greatness.

The reign of the Harlem Diplomats is without a doubt one of the most influential periods in modern hip-hop. The movement that officially started with family features on Camron’s ‘S.D.E.’ album turned into one of New York City’s most powerful crews. Dipset created a sound that transcended the borders of east coast rap with a style that fueled urban culture for the better half of the 2000s. Killa Cam’s unapologetic uptown crew, Jim Jones, Freaky Zeeky and Juelz Santana, evolved to be leaders in their own rights commanding offshoot rap groups while still reppin’ the eagle and still screaming Harlem.

To celebrate the legacy of the Diplomats, we put together a comprehensive mix spanning years of bandana wearing and flag waving. While there is no possible way to include every significant offering of their vast catalogue, we believe we compiled some of Dipset’s best music in this 100+ minute homage.

Welcome back. I recently did some research on the house that the Griswold's spent Christmas in and was surprised to find out that the entire neighborhood was built as a set. If you look in the background of some of the shots you can see Danny Glover's house from Lethal Weapon, and the house that was used in the series Bewitched. Just a little tidbit. On to the dope shit.

Don't get "got" this year by the bootleggers. Make sure your joints are purchased thru a reputable site. Everyone has a hustle these days and if you're not careful even you can get laughed at for wearing the phonys. Shout's out to DJ Clark Kent for sending the link.

I wonder how many cornballs are going to run to their nearest smoke shop to cop a volcano? It's really sad, but people will do it. This is a far cry from the 3 liter bottles of soda (what ever happened to them?) cut in half and made into a gravity bong.

If you don't feel like listening to the same ol' Christmas songs that are way beyond played out, I got you covered. . Trojan always puts out the best of the best in reggae and they have done it again with this fine release. This set will have you thinking about taking a trip to Jamaica for next Xmas. Remember to bring a little extra cash though, Dec.-Feb. is the most expensive time to travel to the Caribbean.
