I'm going to go home and eat pie.

Something for your earholes.

The Midnight Marauder talks to Breihan about his new stuff and music in general. Read it.

Noz has something about Group Home over at XXL. He rocks on the block with the real hip hop… as you start to jock… and clock.

Cornball outfits, Vol. 1

I was reading the archives of Noz's blog over at XXLMag. com (I kid you not) and I found this picture, and was inspired to start a series where we post people, famous or not, looking like damn fools. Here's the start, I am sure there will be more, even if the posts are less organized.

Somebody should have slapped some damn sense into you. And Stanley Crouch should not be seen in public. Good lord. I am back at Swat in a couple days, and I'm going to be back on the radio, after some rest/ being really lazy about signing up. The music tastes have expanded, so expect more from my show, as always. And subscribe to the podcast, when in starts. But, I need a name for my show and a partner. I'm iffy about the latter, since it means I may have to share song time. But I really want to talk about rap and not just do stupid PSAs that no one cares about. I've also been told by a few people that they listen to my show (no, not my family), so I need some way to fill in that space in between the stretches of songs. As far as names, I'm thinking "Sock Over the Shoe," or some other kind of random rap lines. Honestly, I am leaning towards simply "Ayo!" It's simple and I'll get no questions about where it came from. Who knows, I may create a catchphrase at school. Right. But that still does not resolve the problem of a partner. If you're reading this (you need a hobby, or my mother) and you're a Swattie, shoot me an email and we'll do business.

But yea, cut out that cornball mess.

don't tell Minister Farrakahn.

I guess you can at this point, since he hasn't been relevant since Cube vs. Com Sense.

Give my ladies dick, my young hoes pee-pee

The title has nothing to do with this, I just thought it was a stupid Jay-Z line. Noz, I still don't get it, you must explain fully. Carmelo is a moron. "You can't laugh at a fact"? Of course you can. Observe: Jason Kidd has ugly children. Well, maybe you cry at that, but I'm still right.

Oh. Yes.

Oh, here's a funny fact. Sorry, I had to do it.

What is this? I swear, I can never read any good news. 52/54% compared to 23%? Something just does not click.

Baby let me get the keys to the Rover truck

I used to love this song. R/C Tyco vs. Carrera, pick.

I'm goin' way down south, way down south...

I am sure if people read our blog we'd get crap for a) unnecessary posting of flickr pictures just so one of us can download them to our hard drive and b) only caring about rap music. Well, that is not true. We do care about other kinds of music. So read this, and stop whining.

This boy is assed out. Soon in more ways than one.

And sorry about the pictures. Like I said, flickr is a douche.

News and such

''I do not see this country allowing another Katrina-type event to happen.''
- R. David Paulison, the new head of FEMA

That's good to hear (if not obvious). So does this mean we'll be able to help places like Jamaica, or are they on their own?

There's also this article where a task force leader compares MS-13's spread across the country to a virus, not unlike "The Matrix." Some of these kids sound like aspiring rappers. And a few probably are, for that matter.

That was a dick move, Hebrews.

I've also been reading the blogs a lot, Noz in particular, and he writes well (which says a lot since most hip hop bloggers can't form a complete sentence). He really likes Jay-Z, and makes interesting arguments about him (like Breihan), but I don't get it. So for this reason, I must return to the radio after a 9 month absence to understand why Jay-Z is good (if he is so). For that task, I need a partner. But not just any old fan, someone who actually likes to talk about rap and has open ears. No small task back at the Dungeon. We'll see how that goes.

Don't let the patent leather shoes fool you young'n/ I got the fully in the tux

He represents progress. He represents what hip-hop is about. Hip-hop is about progress, the struggle.

He also likes Beyonce and the Martha Stewart who's far from Jewish. Call DYFS, this is child abuse for real.

Apparently, colored people are allowed in pools, but those with HIV are not. My mind is blown. Progress in the South is like hot ice. That's not to say I'm offended, but it was probably the worst thing you could say given the question asked. Your case took a big hit, sir.

My crime work, ninja style shit was did

Imus so it seem to be.


What I find even funnier is that Al Sharpton and Co. are still going to attack the "real reason" behind Imus's comments: a type of music. In fact, he did that already across the country. I am more than a bit skeptical about the "lyrics" committee thing, since I've heard plenty of stupid remarks about all types of people who are not black women in recent rap songs. More on this at some point.

Good day in the news for the Chocolate City. And it seems like black people are the leaders in this field. I am sure these two things are the result of too much rap music being distributed to our political leaders and young people. Oliver Thomas must have had his mind submerged in the world of Mobb Deep. Don't laugh, political leaders are always under pressure like fat bitches.

Maybe if kids could get a job after high school without a college degree this wouldn't be so necessary? I hate adults.

heads must roll

Someone stole our blog name. that's not cool at all. and I know the Mayor of Trenton. He may not be the best (take a drive through the place), but he's a nice enough guy. Although 13 years of the same leadership is a mighty long time.

Obviously, it is not a good year to be in charge of any sports organization. But this issue came up last year right before the start of the World Cup, and they interviewed Thierry Henry about during one of Freedomland's games. The guy does not really say anything constructive, and you can't really expect him to, he's a high level official. But saying Africa isn't diverse or that Eastern Europe is more racist because of the war in the Balkans are a) offensive and b) a stretch for me, to say the least. Hopefully his comments don't make it back to the turbulent nation that is Africa.

Am I a terrible person for thinking the subway may be shut down again this week is funny? If I am, oh well.

Tornadoes in BK?

This nonsense and this only confirm for the general public what Nickleodeon told me 15 years ago (it's scary how old I'm getting): global warming has been real, and it took people being bothered for us to care. How predictable. Also, what's with the recent failings of our infrastructure lately? And NY should invest in aboveground buses... they rock.

I only skimmed over the first page of this Village Voice piece, but it seems to be an interesting piece on Disco D's life during his come-up. You may recall he had some emotional issues and ended up committing suicide last year.

And if you ever thought about teaching in NYC, think again...

“Governments do not want to pay for maintenance because it is not sexy,” said John Ochsendorf, a structural engineer and an associate professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Something's not clicking with me

Can any explain why the President is rushing to the aid of Minnesotans less than 24 hours after the bridge collapsed, but three months after Katrina this guy was still waiting for a damn FEMA trailer? It's not about race, it's about being unprepared and inept.

NASA can do no right.
