Murs for President

I've been waiting on this album forever!
MURS a.k.a Making Underground Raw Shit, finally comes through with his much anticipated major label debut. Longtime fans may not like the move to a major label, might call him a sellout, they might complain that he's all over MTV and Myspace, but c'mon, this man deserves it. It's about time the masses got a real hip-hop artist.

As for the music, it's no 3:16 the 9th edition, but it's close. For me, the best major label hip-hop album since Lupe Fiasco's The Cool. Overall best hip hop album since Sweet Lord two months ago. Hahahah, just kidding, Johnson and Jonson destroys. I've heard people complain about the Will.I.Am track but hey, let the man have some fun and try something else for a change. Nothing to complain about, MURS always comes correct.

BUY this album. You won't regret it.

U-N-I- Yesterday

Ima hit you up with some more L.A. hip-hop.
This time it's by U-N-I. They recently won Breakout L.A. Artist on Mtv or something like that. I've been on these guys since "K.R.E.A.M" came out last year and I haven't looked back.
This song is off of Dub Frequency’s Creme De La Creme mixtape.

I must be Trippin'

I saw this movie today called Trippin'.
It was filmed at my old high school. I find it strange seeing a low budget teen comedy about finding yourself and true love take place at your own school. It's like, I could have been there in the background, you know, chillin with my boys while Donald Faison and Anthony Anderson run around. It's funny because I can definitely relate to the main character in this film. Weird shit.


Mi Vida Loca, not so much.

I got home today and watched this whole movie on youtube.
Parts 1-10.


C-San- LA life

I love Los Angeles.
I love this song.

Czech it.
My man C-San repping the best city in the world.
Hooked after the first listen.

Peep the green and red Hundreds fitted.
That's wassup!

WTAPS "Red Dawn"

Japanese label WTAPS has released some images from their 2008 winter/fall line. You have to admire the attention to detail they put into every single one of their garments. I especially like the mouton vest, I don't know why, it has this sort of bad-ass aesthetic about it. And we all know that "bad-ass" is the first word that comes up when you think of me.

Check out the rest of the collection here.


Supreeme- Silver Medallion

After all the controversy, delays, and hunger strikes, it's finally out.
Now go eat a sandwich littlelolita08 and "Barb".

Download it here.



I hate homework.

I wish I could fly.

That would be the best.

Kanye West-Love Lockdown

This is the first single off of Kanye's new album 808's and Heartbreak. It was rumored that Kanye's album would be titled Good Ass Job but I guess those rumors were false. Love it or hate it, you gotta admire Kanye for going in a new direction. I for one can't wait to see what Yeezy has coming for us this time around.

Download the song here.


what the effff?!

I'm never taking the greyhound.
Fuck that shit.




Last night I had a crazy dream. I was in a big convenience store, i don't really know how to explain it, think of a Rite Aid, but it had really low shelves and it had huge windows all around.It was night. For some reason, a whole bunch of strangers and I lived in the rite-aid at night and we would hide during the day. One day, as the sun was about to rise, cops raided the store and I got shot for some reason. All the other people got away except for me. I remember when the cops busted in, the other people, who were somehow my friends, ran towards the cops and miraculously got away. I thought I did the smart thing by not running right at the 5-0, but instead I was the one who failed. I remember being on the floor as hundreds of cops rushed me. At first I was angry for being the only one caught, even though in my judgment I did the smart thing. Then I started laughing at the sheer silliness of the whole situation. There I was, in a weird ass rite-aid, as hundreds of officers circle me. ME. I was cracking jokes with the police as I was bleeding on the floor. Then all of a sudden, I started thinking about it and It wasn't so funny. I was about to be arrested and taken to jail. Everything now seemed so severe. A million things rushed through my head, thoughts of my life and the people I would miss. And then I realized it was a dream, and willingly woke myself up.

I don't know what that was all about, but I hope it isn't a sign of things to come.

Fuck, that's what I get for finishing my homework at 2:00 clock on a Monday morning.


Blu & Mainframe are: Johnson and Jonson

L.A. rapper Blu and producer Mainframe have joined forces to release their new album Johnson & Jonson.
After releasing one of the best hip hop albums ever alongside producer Exile, Blu has returned, this time with Mainframe behind the beats. If you haven't heard 2007's Below the Heavens, then get on it. In my opinion it was the most slept on album of the year and probably one of the best. It's great to see a sort of re-emergence of Los Angeles hip-hop. Between Blu, Murs' release later in the month, Ice Cube, Living Legends and others, the west coast is once again making it's mark in rap.

Check out Blu's myspace here.

Johnson & Jonson drops September 23rd.
