Check out Emynd‘s late-90’s-Cash-Money-Mannie-Fresh-Bounce-Rap inspired remix to Grande Marshall‘s hilarious V-Nasty.” If you’re not up on Grande, he recently signed to Fool’s Gold on the strength of his excellent debut mixtape “800.” Grande is young, driven, talented, and has a confident, unique vision of what he wants his music to sound like. We here at CFB eff with young bol HEAVY and we’re hype to have him performing alongside Emynd, Bo Bliz, and DJ Diamond Kuts this Friday at the 5th Anniversary of THE BOUNCE. Enjoy the song and come check Grande out this Friday! Hope y’all enjoy it.
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.
LONG LIVE THE BASED GOD!
Next Tuesday (March 1st) my new mixtape Somewhere Between Fast Food and Vegan Vol. 2 comes out. Here is another edit off the mix. If you didn’t grab the Ricky Rozay one peep it here.
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.
Fever Pitch is the riddim famous for “Rich Girl” and “Limb by Limb”. I didn’t include either of them in this zip. This is 4 other nice cuts from the riddim. Check it.
Dope release from my dude Took and Glych who I know nothing about. Some interesting dance-meets-rap shit.
If you see me in the streets with a hot pink Wu-Tang t-shirt on ask me about it.
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.

While you flip through dude’s portfolio bang this:

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.
