"Star War's XV, I'm the last hope"

New...ish XV. For all of you that like some uptempo, upbeat hiphop, XV is that dude. He's got an eclectic style that is definitely unique. American indie band Jupiter One drops in on this one providing a dope ass hook.

Party Track

As the Thanksgiving week closes up and you're spending the last two or three days at home or visiting family I hope you get a chance to party it up if you haven't already done so. To help lubricate your party situation a bit let me throw a few tracks at you...
The first is a fire mashup over from White Folks Get Crunk and gets people bobbin their heads and shakin their asses before you can say I'M THIRSTY!!!
The second might is by my favorite band at the time called the Classixx and it sets a very good theme for any night because I'm not sure if they're saying get started or retarded. It might be both, either way they are both fully acceptable. Hope you enjoy the rest of your break and that you are eating left overs at like 4 AM because you're drunk off your ass.

After 72 years the AMA has now recognized marijuana as having beneficial medical value. It's about god damn time, whether it's all mental or it does actually serve a purpose in treating patients it helps people and that's enough in my opinion to do something positive with it. I also recently read that in portland the very first cannabis cafe opened up allowing authorized users to enjoy their cannabis in privacy and a relaxed atmosphere outside of their home. Big steps are happening guys! Living in VA I don't think any of these amendments will be coming soon but I'm sure one day every state will have some kind of leniency towards weed.

I'm not too big into sports of any kind but I can honestly say the I appreciate the athleticism that these men and women display. Watching highlights gives me a boner forreal. The video below is a mini commentary about Dock Ellis, pitcher, who pitched a game, by accident, on LSD and did amazing during the game. It's pretty ridiculous if you ask me but I love it.

1, 2....break it down

It's been a long haitus, but damnnn school has been kicking my ass. Here's a couple of joints I've come across over the last weeks/months. First off, Miike Snow takes a shot at Vampire Weekend's Kids don't stand a chance, which I found to be very enjoyable. The progression of this song is badasssss, once the tempo kicks up this becomes even more ridiculous.

Vampire Weekend- Kids don't stand a Chance(Miike Snow Remix)

Second up, John Roman gets it in with his take on the ever-remixed "Heads will Roll". Personally got to say this is my favorite, over A-trak, over anything I've heard
Heads Will Roll(John Roman remix)

A Tribute to Rosie Perez

Off FELT 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez hitting stores 11/17, Murs, Slug, and Aesop Rock bring the heat giving me my first fix in 5 yearsss.

Travis Remixes Forever

Most will admit that Travis Barker is a force to be reckoned with. Blink 182 created classics that I'll still happily throw on and have any number of people starting singing along to it. Blink's back on top of shit making a new record coming off a recent tour, he's also working on a solo album, surviving almost lethal airplane crashes and on top of that he's a Dad. Gotta hand it to him mang. Travis takes care to not drown out the instrumentals of the original songs he works on like so many drummers do while playing for their own bands.

MTV interview:
"This song gets played so much — whether it be on TV or on the radio or XM — and I think songs like this that you can't escape, you start to get ideas in your head about how you'd want to flip it," Barker said. "And this song is awesome; every verse is crazy. Who could ask for a better lineup as far as rappers? And everyone's going in on their verse. So I was excited about it, I didn't have to think twice about getting on it." -Travis

He def. got on it...

Drake Ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem (Travis Barker Remix)

Lonely at the top

There are a lot of ways that the video below can be interpreted and I don't think there is a point in the video where it makes any more sense than when it first started. In the past few years Kanye's head has been growing exponentially. I mean who can blame him? Everything he does is successful, yea he may have done some ridiculous shit along the way but it was only for the attention. No one has stopped listening to Kanye because he actually took a dump on Taylor's (almost said Miley, haha) head on live tv, I mean look at this blog, Kanye is in the top 3 blogged artists. Am I proud of that? I don't know, but the point is that he's made an impact. The thing about Wayne & Kanye is that they both have evolved in major ways, starting from The Carter and moving into the Carter 3, wayne has had a completely different style every album. Kanye almost made me gag when I saw the first live performance of Love Lockdown on SNL (I thought it was a joke fittingly enough). But his attempt to take rap/hip-hop to an entirely new chapter of his book was something pretty daring. But it grew on us and now... we're locked down. Where is it going from here? Who knows. I think you owe it to your self to sit through the 11 minutes that are below. Maybe Kanye has gotten to... well, Kanye. Maybe he's realized how he's acted, I doubt it though. Even if I have some sympathy for people at the top, an appology and a return to earth is really all people are looking for. Don't bellitle yourself Kanye, just come back to your roots. (I'm sure he'll read this)

NOW, to balance out this influx of Kanye on this blog let's drop something sooo sexy that you'll forget all about Kanye and his little rat heart thing. This goes out to someone special.
If you haven't gotten a green eyed love yet, you should really try to do something about it, it'll make your life so good. Lift me upppp <3

Mayer Hawthorne - Green Eyed Love (Classixx Remix)

Auditory Pleasure

What is arguably my favorite cd that has come out this year, Boy Meets World from Fresno native Fashawn delivers. Boy Meets World is a cohesive, energetic and brilliant cd, a result of the masterful/soulful production entirely done by Exile, matched perfectly with the talented and introspective Fashawn. The whole cd is a great listen all the way through and is definitely worth 10 bucks to say the least. Below is a cut off the album, featuring Blu, who also happens to be one of my favorite up and coming emcees. Get the cd, here.

Samsonite Man- Fashawn ft. Blu

And sidenote: Talib Kweli played at our homecoming this past weekend. Man is a great performer and he did a couple songs acapella that will be on his upcoming album, Revolutions Per Minute. Needless to say, it was and is going to be ridiculous.

A Sweet Death

So I was about to start studying when I randomly came across a cover of Ayo Technology originally sung by 50 (fi-ty) and JT. Not only is this a cover but it is also a completely different approach to the meaning of the song. The meaning I haven't really understood yet but the artist ends up being suffocated by the sweet/thick syrup of the alluring maidens around him. The artist, Milow, hails from over seas as you will bea able to hear in his pronunciations of certain words but it only makes this cover more interesting. The accoustic intro reels you in and once the drums drop along with a few other instruments its game over. Make sure to give it to him or her after you're done listening to this song.

Couldn't leave without droping a song for everyone so here is a remix of Ayo Technology by Johnatron who is from San Jose in Cali. He has some really legit remixes on his myspace so check it out if you got the itch.

The Great International Friday

Today, all around the world people are celebrating the end of the work week and the beginning of what some may refer to as the weekend. Let's celebrate in harmony and then tonight we shall all get naked at some point and have a fantastic night.
Let's all raise our glasses to FRIDAY!

I'm not sure what just happened, but I was in a spell of some sort that was caused by this.....!!!!

Hero - Funeral March

Bottle shaped body like...

As much as I want to keep myself from posting Kanye tracks because he really doesn't deserve to be listened to until he takes his cool cap off I couldn't help but let you guys in on this rediculous mashup by Xaphoon Jones. This track takes Testify by Kanye Stupidweezy and layers it over the instrumentals of Reckoner by Radiohead. It's funny that Xaphoon chose to use Radiohead's Reckoner because Dj Earworm did something very similar with Love Lockdown earlier this year. Hands down the best of this track starts around the 1:20 mark where Thom Yorke's voice pierces the sound waves and continues with Lupe who I miss a good amount. Both tracks can be found below...

Bizarre Looking White People.

Time- Mr. Hudson

Never really paid much attention since Mr. Hudson arrived on the scene. The name itself was kind of comical to me and for some reason I never gave him a chance. But this melodic tune is pretty nice not gonna lie.

Wake up and Smell the Garden

Cult Logic Forever- Drake & Miike Snow(The Hood Internet)

Humans < Cats

Found this following piece while Stumbling thorough the internet. It's a masterpiece beyond all regards. The animation is sleek, and matches the poetry to a heartbeat. The narration is exquisite and so keen. We as humans can be cruel and this video should be a reminder to spare an insects life and be friendlier. Just beautiful, watch below!

This bangs. POKER FACE.
Make Her Say- Kid Cudi ft. Kid Cudi & Common(88 Nadastrom Remix)

9 P.M. til I Bojangle

The song title alone gives this one a "must listen". DJ Real Juicy combines ATB's "Til I come" with classic Pitbull. This shit is dope.

Tony Royster Jr is probably one of the best definitions of gospel chops out there....
Thomas Pridgen is probably one of the most talented drum players i've ever seen and he plays with one of the best bands that could've picked him up.....
FIRST, Watch both play at a young age and understand how much talent they both have
THEN, watch them play together in the present-------->>>

Tony Royster Jr @ the age of 11

Thomas Pridgen plays below, do you understand how rediculous both of these people are yet???

Now just cream all over your self when you watch this below

Imogen Heap does the incredible

Picture has nothing to do with Immi but that dog is peeing in the right pool

It's really good to be back and on this special sauce situation right now, but let me just show you exactly what I experienced tonight with my roommates and left me astonished at this woman below.... Just Take a look below and don't start crying ok?/??!?aowirh

The first video is Imogen on Letterman who is ridiculous on the show and doesn't really understand what he just witnessed with his eyes

Now Dj Tiesto takes Imogen into his hands while playing for thousands of people and looks so relaxed about it..

Just understand that you may cry while watching the video below because it is actually that intense on your emotions. The song is about a relationship that she had with a male and does an incredible job in transferring her emotions to this beautiful song called Hide and Seek

But you were never on the lease, they just continually return the mail to the sender. Finally got it though. Up first we got a few songs that have gotten some play since i've got my computer up and running. Shout out to Amir for turning me onto J-Cole, dude is dope.

Pogo: Chopping up Disney

A little while back, DJ Lova introduced everyone to Pogo. Sampling and chopping up classic movies such as Alice in Wonderland and The Sword and the Stone, Pogo has an extremely unique talent for creating melodic masterpieces in trippy, upbeat, and even sinister ways. Below are a couple personal favorites, which should show you how much of a beast this guy is.

Here, Pogo redoes "The Secret Garden" in a relaxxxingggg ambient style.
