I really meant to put this up earlier but I loafed on posting. I actually saw this on one of my boys twitters and I was really feeling it. I was trying get hold of this cat but couldn't. Anyway I am not really sure what spark this up but its a dope track he really kills this, there must be some real stuff going down in the DMV that do not know about this week it might pop up and things that were underground will show up and maybe we will see whats going on with the DMV hip hop scene.

Drake Finally signed. He is officially with the team he started with YOUNG MONEY, so this means he will have back up from universal did any of YOU really doubt that? You had to know it would end with this.
Still blown that this was like the final performance lol like really Im not sure has he even been officially signed but yea here it goes but o yea to back up drake he really tore his ACL so that why he was sitting and didn't do a REAL performance you know. So i guess we did get that Wheelchair Jimmy
So Back to biggest Coonery Channel ever with the corniest event REVIEW. As most of us watched the BET awards really just to see if they will have a dope MJ tribute. Jamie Fox did his thing I will give him that his hosting was dope and it started off pretty good. I will also give credit to BET for doing this in such a short time. BUT I was really hoping to see a good Michael Jackson tribute with all of the songs and dances performed from the people who idolize him from Usher, to Neyo and Chris Brown. I heard they did not want Chris Brown perform just because of the incident. I do not think its fair to punish him from showing respect from his idol. Anyway I was still waiting for a classic performance. Hopefully there will be better tribute but I still am not BET lover and I do not except there coonery and the evil ways of Debra Lee-vil. How did you enjoy it and think of the show?
LOL @Wale he went on cat at Sneaker Pimps as a dude in the crowd tries to go and Wale goes SMACK at cat it was very amusing, I think it made the performance even better wale had so much more energy and so extra live

The Greatest Performer of all time passed away today. Michael Jackson was the best, he is the only artist people will never be ashamed to say I know all his lyrics, or I have the best hits of, from Jackson 5 to doing Thriller to Making Great MOVIE VIDEOS that started it all he was great. Linking up with great artist such ass Paul McCartney to actors and comedians like Eddie Murphy and Chris Tucker EVERYONE loved MICHAEL he was the man and is now the Legend no one could be him with the concerts and the music he has produced its not dupliable. He has had his crazy spotlights as a celebrity, and is prob in every joke in the world but people will always love MJ. Rest In Peace to the Greatest Entertainer Of All Time.
This here is prob one of my favorite videos of Mike this is a classic

We have a new emerging artist out of VA. He has been on several shows that he has showed his talent on BET from spring bring freestyle which he won to 106& Park and The Center. I got his new track It always something, Its dope track I was feeling the whole production he had some real futuristic track like Kanye Stronger type. Many people cant flow on beats like this so when he came on it I was surprised and I was digging I can def get in to his music check it out

Today I was checking out the usual blogs and I came across Wale new Mixtape Back To The Feature one Kanye blog. This is a good look for Wale I was really glad to see it an wale getting some great views on here with the mixtape, he has already blew so many downloads in such a short time now on pretty big blog where I believe many folks go on A LOT get to see Wale and maybe with Wale being cool with a lot of kanye boys does this mean a collab in the near future? That would be real dope for Wale and he done great job with putting DMV on the map
If you want to check out a great review on the album check out DDOTOMEN
So last post I was telling yall how my name dats dope was basically stolen. And way before I posted this and was heated really I sent a twitter remark and message him coming at him off some real grown man shit before I knew the nigga bought the name out and its legally a domain. I came at him correct cuz yall no me I am not that type of cat and im not no "INTERNET THUG" who be rapping and yappin at cats but punk out in person. So I get a email from this... lets just call waste of life, talking shit I will show you what he wrote me after basically talking shit and rapping like a little bitch. Usually you know I do not curse on the blog to keep suitable for everyone so they can read and make legit but this punk ass nigga came at me in a way like REALLY? wtf.
So first he was like how G am I? lol Like son for real what does being G have to do about this damn shit, and first wtf son you from RHODE ISLAND why the fuck you talking about being G or thug or whatever whats hood bout that anyway. Then he was like he promotes he a rapper his name is big in his state blah blah nigga you want a cookie for that shit? Anyone can be big in Rhode Island shit I could fit that shit in Rhode Island Ave in the city Adams Morgan is bigger than that. So I am really not that type of person to talk trash but he really blew me off that shit. He saying all this shit how he got fan base and how MY blog is some shit? have yall seen his site that shit is GARBAGE I talk about real shit and REAL music I am not even goin to both listen to his trashy ass music LOOK AT THIS NIGGA HE LOOKS LIKE A GUMP.

I get emails on traffic I use on my blog, and other sites that say where my blog name has been used. So today I get a email saying there is another Dats Dope blog. So I go to it and see there is actual site with my name that just started this month. Where I have been doing this more months. I found out that now he actually bought the domain name dats dope so its legally his? THATS SOME BULLSHIT real talk, if someone tries to use a name that clearly has system for awhile they need to notify people before anything like at least can i get a email stating someone wants to use it or tell them they cant I would have purchased it if I knew. Fuck that I will not change my name or anything I really think as my Dats Dope readers you should go against that fraud of a site and stay supporting mine. And yea I have a right to be pissed because after you put so much work into something and then this happens to you man F that.
Go here to look at the fake site they have up with MY NAME

As a DMV resident the Metro is big part of our lives. Many of us use this transportation system everyday to get to work, school or any other activity we have to do. There was very bad train crash today on the Red Line which is the stop I may start off if I leave my house to use. It happened between the takoma and Fort Totten stop. I am very sadden to say that there were some deaths in the crash. My prayers go out to anyone who was involved and there families.
"A Metro train slammed into the back of a stopped train on the Red Line during the height of rush hour Monday afternoon, killing at least six people and injuring 70 others in the deadliest crash in the transit agency's 33-year history."

Been trying to post a Baltimore Rapper for awhile, just seem like I couldnt find one at first but we finally got one. Rapman Ron G from B-more has a track called “Da Law” it thats song if you hate the cops, like I mean HATE. If you cant stand being harrased for no reason driving, walking down the street, or being on the metro and you have the dick head of a cop who has low self esteem but has to have that big ass ego to mess with you out of all people. This song got me all types of hype when I heard first. Like I always say F the POLICE yea I said it.
This will be my chant forever now lol:

Today we found out that NFL player Donte' Stallworth will be serving ONLY 30 days in jail. Where Michael Vick served 22 months in jail and still currently under house arrest for fighting dogs.
First I just want to say that what happen to Stallworth could happen to anyone and glad he wont be Jail for the rest of his life because he could have served over 15yrs for manslaughter because of his DUI. Second I do not agree with what Vick did with the dogs but I still think there is big difference between killing and animal and killing a human.
I have nothing against making Vick serve time but the man lost EVERYTHING all his money, his home, endorsements and hopefully not his career. Peta made this a bigger event than this really is, we have drunk driving accidents happen so much in this country but we wont take stand and make a serious matter? I don't see MADD going crazy saying we need to kill Stallworth, ban him from the NFL. Vick got the worst treatment I still do not condone to what he did I love dogs shit I myself have a dog. But America has to get there priorities straighten out. We have so many people in jail for a long period in time for DUMB SHIT like marijuana possession gets you pretty good time, where we have people who committed a crime like murder or rape and child molestation basically getting off or serving no time at all. Vick served his time leave the man alone Fuck PETA. NFL let Vick get back to what he does best.
I guess they were not thinking of Blacks in general when they created this LOL
It is a pretty smart idea because we know it takes forever for student to even start studying and then not giving up after 15 mins. But my whole thing is the Study Ball will start up some controversy especially in some African Diaspora classes lol.

Anyway Phys Edison creates some dope beats that just got you loving music the whole production caught my ear real quick, he mixes a lot of classic and real chill instrumentals and You just cant stop listening "Phys Edison Brunch" is one of those tracks you can just be in anymood for. LoveJones is on point I did not even expect this at all, each track he spits on I was like this another good look for the game. He has nice flow and everything he does just sets the proper mood for this mixtape. Couple Tracks I was digging was Sucka MC's which cool remake of Tribes Sucka N****, Had a Dream and New World. These two are deadly combo they mix real well. One track was still DOPE but did not fit so well was The Get up but I still like the track it kind of goes away from the look of the original concept I think. They also sent me a video for "New World" which I think also caught my attention it was real different and creative www.youtube.com/watch?
Out of all the emails I get from people they might be one my favorites and I get A LOT
I know a lot of yall would love this especially if you around me and know what we listen too.

So this artist I have hear sent me an email to put him on the blog. I really like his grind actually because most people ask me to throw them here but dont put the effort. He gave me all his info several tracks information and all that. His style sounds different to me which I like I cant really put him in a "Category" right now or pin him to another artist that he may sound like. He is own The track I will put down next with the link Doin What I Do is pretty dope track its the best one he sent to me out of all. Another Good looks on his part I believe he sampled Wale Nike Boots in the begining of the track and aint even from the DMV so good looks on showing love. Check this cat out and tell me what you think.
Doin What I Do-
Ive always tried to have that Artist Of The Week but its hard to determine that when you get request. I love receiving emails for peoples talents I like putting people on. Before I would just wait and space out who I want to put on but if you send me info I will def put you on so hit me up all my info is on the bottom in the disclaimer so def hit me up with your music, art and etc..
But make sure you check the blog because I do have couple things lined up from alot artist also New Mixtapes, Debut of some new local artist coming up in the game So bring the best out people I will show you love and put you on BUT I WANT TO HEAR FIRE so give it your best
