I found out about Cloud 9 actually through twitter las night, they popped up on my timeline and this rack "Theory Of Destiny". It reminded me of Linkin Park/Gym Class Hero type ish but I was rocking with it. I dont know much on this group but they sound very talented from the Band to the MC, from the artwork it is def a diverse group hopefully they can send us some more tracks in near future. There from the DMV also is another dope stamp.

Meant to post this as I saw it but been loafing a little due to certain projects that will be happening for Dats Dope. Once again Nike comes up big with this commercial for World Cup. If your not a soccer fan at all this just shows how EPIC World Cup is and how serious this game actually is. I am not soccer faithful 24/7 but world cup in South Africa will be amazing def somewhere I want to go. June 11th is the big day.
I have to say Aaliyah was such a great talent and hearing her voice sample just brought back memories. Anyway though we finally got the CDQ of this Drake x Jeezy collab, def a dope track Drake got people really anticipating June 15th when Thank Me Later drops. 2bz good looks once again on the track

I am pretty big fan of Supra collection even though I personally do not own a pair just cause I am lazy and buy other kicks that I may not get later LOL. Anyway the supra mainly the Muska Skytop brand for obvious reasons just the whole design of the shoe to even the minor things like the "stash pocket" shhh not many know about it. With this "Wino" edition I just like the whole look from the Jet black look to the Wax shoelace's this is just a dope shoe. You can't forget about the Gum bottom that brings it out even more, I am fool to gum bottoms and Icey bottoms thats on shoe I most likely will be purchasing it. They are already in stock so you can purchase them now at any Supra retailer props to Freshness
It feels dope to drop some tracks of people who you know especially when its a pretty dope project, glad to introduce Casper G MC from Jersey. I met Casper back freshman year at Morgan and he was my roommate during orientation and neighbor through freshman year in the OC. Man some of the stuff we did and I saw because of this cat were pretty Reckless!!!! LOL anyway Casper was probably the FIRST actual person I ever met who said they rap during that year. He put me on some tracks back then but never really heard anything from him always thought he was nice and wanted to hear more.

Glad to see some Ash haven't really posted anything from him, dope visual he had for this and BB GUN always dope. I think most of these rappers need to hook up with BB GUN because he does it right. But yea this track is dope I just got to listen to the mixtape it was ight nothing to crazy but it rocked.
It was ight nothing really to crazy but only posting it because you gotta respect that grind little dude has plus I wanted to laugh I think he said "WHORES" I don't think Rev Run approves of that language.
New Kendrick Lamar today just boosted me, He right now is one of my favorite MC's out right now. If you havent checked the EP of Kendrick Lamar you def have to check him .

I always try to put a little of feminine side to Dats Dope because it is for everyone but don't get that side as much might have to hire something for that LOL, but anyway the only line of clothing that always catches my eye is Married to the Mob they have so many designs but so simple which is always good. You always wants something simple but will always stand out, some fellas might actually notice know this model on there late night movie watching. Check out this summer line up and this trailer they did for this line below.

I've been a huge fan of boondocks for years I have many of the comic books still and actually saved a couple of the one that used to be in the post. I remember when I first got into Aaron McGrudger drawings, back when he was still at UMD I would see them in the papers and thought this was so DOPE. I did not understand much of it then but just seeing black cartoon was just not seen at all especially one who broke the boundaries in what was said. As I got older yesss I became a Boondocks Stan I even tried to draw like McGruder and everything, you have to love the racial stereotypes and American culture that McGruder brings to this cartoon. So boosted for this new season which starts tonight, check out some of the trailers. If your not into this I really don't know why I guess I am the only one who finds racial truths hilarious but being around me you will watch it.
