I set aside stuff that catches my eye when I comb through FFFFOUND everyday.

This website will seriously impede your ability to focus.

Ian Curtis

Horace Andy

All of Wackie's album covers are black and white and have this xerox aesthetic that makes them stand out instantly when you dig through the bins for vinyl.

This Horace Andy cover has always been one of my favorites.

Nail In The Coffin

Pencils? Seriously?

Way to raise the bar guys.

As if the sub-culture that decided to dub itself streetwear wasn't cannibalizing itself enough we now have brands making limited edition pencils that you can pick up for a mere $27 dollars.

Can we at least pretend like we're in a recession?

Peer Pressure

Originally I saw this clip a really long time ago, but failed to save it. I tried looking it up so many times without success. I typed in tons of variations (dudes humping chair, chair humping, chair freaking, freaking chairs, dudes getting swerve on with chair, ottoman sexing, how to freak 101, so on and so forth) none of them came back with the right clip.

But now if you type "dudes humping chair" it will come up in the que. Go figure.

Anyways, what you are about to watch is just damn near amazing.

It is a group that calls themselves "Peer Pressure" members include: Relentless, X2C, Pipelayer, Pressure, and last and surely not least Satisfaktion.

Each of these guys introduce themselves to the camera and then proceed to give their best to this poor ottoman, but the best part is not when they are actually humping the hell out of this poor ottoman, but when they do improv air humping in the background.

Technically this clip is safe for work. Technically.

Big L

Here is a nice treat for all the Big L fans that read SDTW.

Now...I could go on and on about why most rappers couldn't even stand in L's shadow, but I will leave that argument for the nerds.

J.Love works with a lot of the 90's favorites and this Big L tape is really well done. There's remixes of classic tracks, unreleased tracks, and b-sides.

If "Lifestylez..." and "The Big Picture" don't do it for you anymore then grab this mix.

Sizzla In Gambia

I've been to a few Sizzla shows. They are by and large my favorite shows to go to in terms of crowds. They get pretty rowdy, but in a good way.

However I think the citizens of Gambia put to shame any crowd in the U.S. The first clip is of people driving and walking to the show and the second is the opening part of the show.

If you have a second watch these to get a scope of how big dancehall is in the far corners of the world.

Reggae Album Cover Art

Look at that Jah Ruby cover with the one shoe on and one shoe off barb wire pose. Too good.

Uncle Murda

A lot of folks are over rap and hip-hop including myself. I mean I still check Nahright daily and listen to new songs now and again, but for the most part I've grown tired of the genre.

That being said though I am a big Uncle Murda fan and the dude is single-handedly saving a deflated and formulaic genre of popular music. Check his new website which aesthetically speaking is pretty blah, but content wise is actually pretty cool. You can even get at Unk if you want or most likely an intern who will then talk to Unk.

Sin Nombre

This one looks pretty good. I think this may be the first feature film to have MS 13 in it. I could be wrong.

Ghostface Don't

"Can you believe grown men still wear pants like this? He looks like he’s sticking his head through a Joint-Rolling Baby cutout at the state fair."

Looks like the Wally Champ himself got put on blast in the "Dont" section. Of course being a "Do" isn't all that great either as Vice is sort of biased towards the coke snorting, ironically dressed, Justice listening crowd better known as "themselves."


This is the first 5 song EP from Judge in 1987. They recorded and mixed the tracks down in 5 hours.

Lil Wayne Vs. Lil Lenox

Lil Lenox from Skip Buringrud on Vimeo.

For those that don't me personally this is my son Lenox b/k/a Baby Zeus and yours truly getting dumb to "Go Dj" by the Young Man Young Carter Fly Weezy F. Baby himself.

I'm not sure why people complain about having kids? They're like miniature drunk people that you can take everywhere with you plus you get to dress them however you want and they love you more than any person you've ever known.

Dizzee Rascal

Grime, dubstep, garage, whatever you want to call it has sort of come and gone, but it is still thriving in many ways. I'm all for it as it is something different to listen to and it sort of adheres to some of the same aspects as dancehall culture.

I don't own a lot of grime albums and don't know too much about the genre to be honest.

I like all of Dizzee's albums. Probably because they actually play like albums and not a whole bunch of singles and b-sides slopped together.

This is Dizzee's second record and was sort of his answer to critics that thought he was going to be a flash in the pan.

Capleton "Stamping Flat"

This is Capleton's reaction to "Ramping Shop". I don't think it is Kartel diss like the tag line says.

Jamaicans are obsessed with this whole "lewd" lyrics thing. Police are now giving tickets to anyone who publicly plays "daggering" tunes on public transports.

A cover of the "Crossfire" theme song. If you don't remember this you're a loser.

See the original below:


I am an outspoken advocate for logo parodies. I despise them on many levels, but every once in a while I have to laugh at them.

There are exceptions to every rule and a life without hypocrisy is not a life at all my friends.

Madvillain Two

I can usually find any album I'm looking for without much effort, but this one was a huge pain in the ass to track down folks. It was originally released in the Madvillain Box Set that Stones Throw put out, but has been subsequently released separately as an album.

The original Madvillain is one of my favorite hip-hop albums. It's bizarrely wonderful in so many ways. Doom's production on his own projects has never really been all that great in my modest opinion, but Madlib on the other hand is probably one of the most prolific producers to ever lay down a track. Let Doom talk and Madlib hit the buttons.

This is nerd rap at its back packingly finest. This isn't an album you would want to put on for a party, but if you're gonna take knife hits and take a nap than this is your bag my friend.
