Green Light

My good friends at Love Machine Films are hoping to get their project "green lit" onto TV.

To help them simply click the link below and register to vote. It takes about 30 seconds. Then watch the short and give it a "green light" score.

The short film made in conjunction with The Glue Network and Surf Aid International sheds much needed light on the plight
of children battling malaria around the world.

Artists like Persue, Tim McCormick, Depth, and Menso among many others donated their collective time to paint a mural that would inspire viewers to "Give" a little more of themselves towards helping people in need.

Timbaland vs. Scott Storch

Timbaland is now beefing with Scott Storch and vice-versa.
Storch's Timbaland Diss on XXL

Ed* Is this for real? Producers are now jumping into the beef soap opera? Who's next body guards? P.R Agents?


Both of these dudes are off my radar for the most part anyways so it's not ruining my day at all.

What value is there in Scott Storch? I mean what can I say about Scott Storch that hasn't already been said about shark's mating?

Dude is so foul looking. He's definitely runner-up for worst dresser in hip-hop right behind Eminem.

Ed* How do you own a Phantom and then dress like you're 10 years old and Puerto Rican?

And Timbo?

Uhhh...he's fat then sort of buff then fat again and he's always wearing super metro-sexual Ed Hardy tees that got glitter and bedazzled jewels on them and sh*t. It's no wonder why hip-hop is so snoring of late.

Moving on....

So I got Jeremy to fix my banner amongst the other things that were kaput on the blog. I use Safari instead of Explorer and I never knew my banner wasn't visible.

Geez. The blog must have been looking suspect to say the least.

Above: Alborosie a long way from home

The Italian born singer/producer's big tune is a huge hit over seas and was recently banned from all Jamaican radio by the Jamaican Broadcast Commission which conversely makes the tune even more sought after by the eager public.

Anyways, I don't know much more about Alborosie other then he also produced the "XXL" riddim that seems to be all rage right now in dancehalls the world over.

Here are his two big tunes that are running as of now:

Alborosie "Herbalist" mp3

Alborosie "Gal Dem" (XXL Riddim) mp3

P.S Anyone out there that has an mp3 of Gyptian "Sensi" from The Biggest One-Drop Anthems 2006 Compilation please holler at me.

Tropical Storm Riddim

This riddim came out towards the end of last year. I was at Dasheye's house and he put on this Capleton track that was murda, but I never paid attention to the name of the tune or the riddim.

Turns out the tune was called "Hit Maker" and the riddim was "Tropical Storm."

I grabbed a couple more versions I was feeling.

Capleton "Hit Maker" (Tropical Storm Riddim) mp3

Vybz Kartel "Gun Shot" (Tropical Storm Riddim) mp3

Buju Banton "Gal Fi Get Page" (Tropical Storm Riddim) mp3

Assassin "Mouth" (Tropical Storm Riddim) mp3

Women Behind Bars

There I am flipping through the channels on t.v when all of sudden I stumble on to the most fascinating prison phenomenom out
Women Behind Bars.

To sum it the site it is simply a Myspace for female inmates.

I haven't even broken the surface of this site and I've already come across special nuggets like

Vernice's hobbies include: chilling, playing basketball, going to the movies.

Not sure, but there has to be way more internet gold all through out this website.

Where Are They Now Answered

Nas has gifted us with one of the more inventive ideas I've seen in hip-hop/rap in a long time.

If you heard the track "Where Are They Now?" on Nas' "Hip-Hop Is Dead"
then you know Nas spits off an impressive roll call of "forgotten" emcees and asks the listener to respect the pioneers of the art form. Preachy? Not really, he does the newbie and the hip-hop scholarly justice and then some.

Nas goes through a very sizeable list naming off everyone from K-Solo, Special Ed, The Pharcyde, and even EMPD. He goes on to lesser known like King Sun, Father MC, and The Skinny Boys. Some on the list I was not entirely versed with, but for the most part the list encompasses several people that made it through my Walkman rotation during my high school tenure.

Now back to the inventive part...

Nas (or most likely a team of ASCAP heads) went and tracked down almost everyone one of these emcees and had them spit a verse a piece for 3 remixes of the song.

The versions are organized by category i.e. 80's, 90's, and West Coast.

Rumor has it there is a Southern version on the way.


Nas "Where Are They Now?" (Album Version) mp3

Nas "Where Are They Now?" (90's Version) mp3

Nas "Where Are They Now?" (80's Version) mp3

Nas "Where Are They Now?" (West Coast Version) mp3

Also here's the list of the emcees and where they currently are now click here

Am I alone in thinking that this years Coachella line-up is snoring?

It seems like it's too spread out over 3 days when it used to be only 2 days and you just had decide which day was better.
The line-up seems uneventful to say the least. They put a "huge" headliner for each day and then follow it with 2 or 3 indie rock bands that we're supposed to oohhh and ahh over.

Did I pay to go last year? Certainly not. I snuck in through the front gate like any other skilled derelict did, but I'm sure as hell not going to make the effort to "ninja" in this year to see f*cking Bjork.

If I had to pick a day to attend I think it would be Sunday with Rage, Manu Chao, Willie Nelson, The Roots, Spank Rock, and The Coup being on my checklist. In all reality I just don't think I'm even going to go. Peep the line-up here and decide for yourself.
