Souls of Mischief discuss G.O.A.T.

NR spotted an interview that SoulCulture.tv did w/ the Bay’s best, Souls of Mischief. While in London, they get on a very thoughtful and thorough discussion about who is the Greatest of All Time in regards to rappers and MCs. Although I disagree with what they say that Jay-Z brought nothing to Hip-Hop and their basic definition of what the “greatest” means, I respect their opinions and glad to see an intelligent discussion on the topic. Quite the opposite of what we see at MTV or BET.

The Onion – Lil Wayne helps DEA


DEA Recruits Lil Wayne To Use Up All Drugs In Mexico

This was genius. Just a little sad and true after just watching the documentary on Lil’ Wayne. But I still laughed. Spotted at Info’s.

Keys N Krates – The Live Remixes Vol. 1

knk-live-rmx-vol-1-back

I posted about these guys awhile back. I think it was the City of Awards video. And I found online the mp3 version of the C.E.O. joint which I’ve been playing at my gigs for the last few months. People trip out to it – in both the good and bad ways. Anyways, as Ivan says, “I jizzed in my pants” when I saw this promo EP posted at Blind I. Download, you won’t be disappointed.

Swagger Like Us (live at the Grammys)

You know I had to post this video. Its worth your time but I can do without the Black and White intro. Obligatory props to MIA for her boldness to go onstage on her due date. Weezy looked silly, Kanye like a kid with autism running rampany, but TI and Jigga gave the show some class and energy. However, I think the performances for the night went to Radiohead (F*ck U$C) and Neil Diamond. Yeah, I said it.

25 Worst Lyrics in Hip-Hop

camron_main

I wasn’t clever enough to come up with this myself but if I had to put my two cents in – there are super rapper’s with just bad lyrics in regards to rhyme and word strucutre (i.e. Prodigy who never rhymes).  But as much I love Ghostface, him, Cam, and Lil’ Wayne def take the cake for non-sensical.  Up there with RZA.  Enjoy the list and lyircs after the jump.

Lil’ Wayne – Interview with Katie Couric

Much more of a gift to Weston than anything else. Lil’ Wayne = new Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson, Little Richard? What I am mad at is that Katie Couric is so soft and hypnotized for the martian! Those are some of the stupidest, softest questions I’ve ever heard. Sounded like a 12-year old white girl from myspace commenting on his page. Ugh. (via NR)

TV on the Radio – Heroes (David Bowie cover)

tv_on_the_radio

Hip-Hop heads are slowly rearing their heads to TV on the Radio.  I can say with much pride and confidence that my brothers were up on them for years now!  Even Wale, who has them on his new album, didn’t have a good idea of who they were before they recorded. (It was a labelmate/blind date kinda of thing from what I’ve heard.)  So, I am doing my part to make up for the Lil Wayne post below and give you some good alternative to hip-hop.  And since HEROES (the TV show) is trying to redeem itself with a new show tonight, I thought this song was appropriate.  Its off a new compilation album where the original artists chose specific artists to redo their songs. In the case of Bowie, he chose TVOTR.  And as a bonus, I’ll give you the Karen O and ODB joint from N.A.S.A.  Supposedly, this is the last verse that ODB recorded.

N.A.S.A – Strange Enough (feat. Karen O, ODB, & Fatlip)

Lil Wayne – Around the way girl

SUMMER TOURS LIL' WAYNE

Worst song since… i don’t know, maybe ever. I try to keep KTL positive and not hate on anything but you can not tell me this is a real song. Imagine a koala being raped by a rhino in room full of crying babies. Weston, you can’t even defend this one. Can’t believe eskay even posted this. Can’t believe I listened.

Lil’ Wayne – Gatorade Commercial

Gotta give it up to Gatorade, they hired a good marketing firm AND they got my attention. I saw this ad twice last night when my two least fav teams in the Pac 10 (GO BRUINS!) & Big 10 (GO WOLVERINES!) were playing against each other in my yearly despise of the Rose Bowl. Immediately after I saw the ad, I tried to figure it out. “Is that Weezy on the voiceover? Was this an ad for Georgetown? Did Nike create a new “G” shoe I didn’t know about? What the hell? Who could get Bill Russell and Ali?” My search on the iphone came up with nothing. Luckily, this morning I found out what it was but its not till tonight that I got the video. I think it was a brilliant move for Gatorade (now “G”) to steal the marketing ploy that Cloverfield used to get people talking about their brand. Internet nerds rule the world. Spotted via Wooohah
