I blogged about this a little over a year ago, but that was before Lil B was the internet sensation he is now so I figured it was a good look to re-up this song that I did with B back in July of 2009. I made a special trip out to the Bay to meet the young bol and get some work done with him and he was truly the most kind, interesting, genuine kid I’ve ever met in this rap game. Spending 10 seconds with B will forever prove to you that everything he does is worth paying attention to… regardless if you like it or not. This song we did is pretty damn silly and I’m not extremely proud of how it turned out, but it is a worthy part of B’s diverse discography and I’m actually really proud to be a part of Lil B’s now classic album “6 Kiss” (even though I get no production credit on it! Hah!). I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on it from a variety of sources regardless of my own personal feelings about it but it’s definitely kinda crazy to have a song on an album that Soulja Boy has in his top 10 of all time. It’s also the 7th most popular Lil B song on Amazon so clearly people are feeling it.
Anyway, look out for The Based God World Takeover that’s BEEN happening and will likely continue to happen in the coming weeks and months and (hopefully) years.
Sean Fennesy just posted about 200 Just Blaze productions for download. It’s a fairly comprehensive collection though I’m sure he’s missing a couple joints here and there. Regardless, it’s an excellent look for your ipods.
So Emil and I do these “the year” parties. It’s a great excuse to dl some old joints that I might have otherwise slept on in the vinyl-mp3 transfer that a lot of us went thru. Now I’m hooking YOU up. I put a couple joints I never bought/ripped on the zip and a couple I’ve been had on mp3.
1. Brandy “I Wanna Be Down”
2. Mary J. Blige “I’m Going Down”
3. TLC “Waterfalls”
4. Boyz II Men “Vibin’”
5. Aaliyah “I’m So Into You”
6. SWV “Anything”
The +1 is Ice Cube “You Know How We Do It”, because when I realized that wasn’t in my serato crates last week it made me very angry.
I played a really fun party in LA this past weekend playing a really wide variety of shit (as usual) from Bmore to mainstream House to Dirty South classics. A fairly good 5 minute portion of my rap set was captured on da youtube machine for posterity as well as 2 minutes of Club (and embarassing behind-the-tables dancing by yours truly). Oh well.
Sound quality is surprisingly good. Dark as fuck up in there but it was jumping. Big up to THEE MIKE B and them for hosting the young bol at their banging downtown party MORE ON THE FLOOR!
In August of last year Morro de Provincia, touted by Brazilian press as Rio’s most violent favela, made news for a different reason: the completion of 28 Millemetros: Women, an installation by French Photographer/Street artist “Jr.” The artist documented women in the Favela and wheat pasted their images on house facades.

2008 was an incredible year for your boys, but 2009 is set to be even bigger and we’re starting the new year off BUSY AS ALL HELL. If we’re in your city, come holler. Or if you find yourself in Philly, give us a shout. If you make the trek to Philly for one of our parties, holler at us on the myspace and we’ll gladly hook you up with some guest list love. Got a lot of stuff popping and I know the google calendar on the side there is a bit too ugly to pay attention to so lemme break it down like this.

French Wheat Paste artist “WK Interact”, whose work is pictured above, graces the cover of the current issue of Juxtapoz magazine. Last week the artist was rushed to a Miami hospital during an Art Basel Art Show after allegedly being knocked out by the prolifically destructive graffiti writer “Nekst”. The beef stems from the wall pictured above, which was painted months ago on a bustling NY corner. WK got permission to wheat paste the wall in the daytime over the underlying graffiti of “Wyse”, a crew member of “Nekst”. Both “Wyse”and “Nekst”eventually went back and painted the 2nd image at night.
Whatever you think about the use of violence, the aesthetic of the pictured graffiti or motivations for any of the above, this example makes clear the fact that one thing that separates graffiti from other forms of art is its unwritten code of social norms. If you go over people you may have a problem. For more info…
As over saturated i am with contemporary Jay-zness this is a nice change of pace. This is off of Nigerian Gangster, a Grey album-esque project where Fela Kuti samples where placed under American gangster lyrics. Slow and Funky.
