Truth (Featuring Shawn Collins) - Hospital Bracelets


The White House Band - Ghost f Tupac - Prod. By David E Beats

Yea I know I slack a lot of reviewing many artist music but I get so much I truley do forget its not that easy but I get music sent from The White House Band a lot and never truly gave it a solid listen. This track using some excerpts from Tupac and production is nice. Hopefully I can get more time on reviewing new artist like I am suppose too.


The First Date: Dont be a Sucka

Dont Be a Sucka

This post was inspired by twitter today and the many rants we went on for this subject that turned trending. I am not sure how it started but I saw on my TL about some sucker guy possibly dropping $200 on the first date. First before I go in, that is straight up Foolish!!

Twitter turns into male and female bashing from the other sex but we can all agree this is pretty extreme unless your the gold digger LOL. And in no way I am blaming the females for this because I know if a girl was going drop that cash on me I am not stopping her!! Why would I really? lol. If I am dropping 200 bucks on the FIRST DATE  I am fully entitled to many thing I believe(i.e. some sort of sexual act) LOL. Its not the Money so don't be calling any guy cheap because he said no to that, because the lifestyle most of us live 200 bucks is nothing we spend that in like 2 minutes, we have more than 200 bucks worth of clothing when we go out and that can start at most guys feet. Hey guys its cool if you want to stunt if you got it, but why on the first date? What are you going do on the second date or even the Third? Some cats really don't know how to prioritize so I guess they don't mind faking with a chick with $200 first date. You are truly foolish if you do so, LOL I am really serious that you better be getting something if you drop that much or more on first date. The only way I am dropping that on a female for a date is if we are married or in serious relationship and its our anniversary or V-DAY, and even then if I had a girl for that she would know we could have great time without all that money spending.

 All jokes aside though a date is suppose to be fun and entertaining between the two people and that's it, and with the FIRST DATE its really more about trying to find out who that person is and not what they have in their wallet. Ive been on many dates where I never paid close to that and had a great time with the girl, there are many places you can take your dates where you can go without dropping stacks on someone. Yall cats out there just gotta be creative, yea you have your typical dinner and drinks but there are many options out there beside that and still have blast. Just gotta do your research, know your area, and do it by the seasons there is always something cool to take someone too. I would list some but I don't want anyone taking my Skeems and secrets I have learned LOL but guys please no more 200 dollar dates its never worth it! AND YES I BLAME YOU DRAKE !!!HAHAHA


My Top 10 Projects of 2011

I have been debating about doing this post for awhile just because everyone does a list and I was lazy but with a little push from some people telling me I should why not! 2011 has been a solid year for Hip Hop and just Music just all together, many artist have delivered some great albums and given me many options to things to listen to this year. I just made a list of some projects I enjoyed this year that I have been bumping in the whip on everyday basis. None of them are in any specific order it just want came to my head at that time.

Lets Begins this list with Dom Kennedy and his  From the West Wide, With Love II. I really enjoyed this project, every track on here is Solid with features with Casey Veggies, Asher Roth, Big K.R.I.T. and ScHoolBoy Q. Dom Kennedy always makes that smooth OG type vibe music that can make you feel like the Don, I played this a lot getting ready for school in the early mornings and with this project you feel like its Summer everyday even if its snow outside. Some Tracks that you should check out Grind'N, She Aint In Love with Me, Platinum Chanel, Beats, Hoes Rhymes, The Ways and Ice Cream Truck.

Add-2 One Missed Call

If you want some real lyrical crazy flow and dope production listen to my man Add-2. This Chicago Native has been coming into his own and really developing his skills to turn into a great MC.This past project he did had a lot of bangers that just had me getting hype and hearing him just kill those beats got me waiting till his next project drops. Tracks to look out for GotDamn, Chicago Blues, Iron Mic.

ScHoolboy Q- Setbacks

I have been enjoying a lot of what ScHoolboy has been doing in this past year with features he has been on and after watching his performance at 9:30 club this year showed me he has some true talents. Setbacks is great project and is definitely gets a lot of plays on Google Music Library,with getting backed with some dope features from TDE members Jay Rock, Kendrick and Ab-Soul, Bj The Chicago Kid, Jhene Aiko and Big Pooh he delivered great project with all different types of tracks to show his range as an artist. Tracks to check out are Live Again , Figg Get Da Money(great production!! I can say thats a classic track) , KamiKaze,#BetIGOTSUMWEED, Fanatasy(For The Ladies as Well)

Mahtisyn (Pronounced Madison) is a dope clothing line I got a chance to stumble upon, I actually ran into one there reps at the mall and they threw me one of there dope bracelets. Based out of Baltimore this clothing line brings great simple but dope designs, they just emailed me a new line up they got working up and if I can say it is sick. These items are must cops, from the Crewnecks to the tshirts and even the snapbacks and I dont even rock snapbacks. Make sure you go check there site out


Add-2 – Ghetto Dreams (Freestyle)

Man Ive been hype for this for awhile since Ive seen Add-2 twitpic this photo above us and I knew he would be working on something ill. Add-2 is def an MC if someone ask me who is dope right now I mention, he always delivers and I havent talked much about an MC like this since Kendrick and yall already know how I feel about that cats music as well. Add-2 has been doing major things and is currently working on another dope project and I cant wait because I am still bumping One Missed Call and even his Tale Of Two cities saga's where I first became a fan and a supporter. Look out for this guy right here, when my man blows up and gets his year remember Dats Dope told ya!

Wheres Julian? – Episode 5 (Pedx)

Yours truly makes a little appearance in this video of Where's Julian, this video brings back soooo many memories. This was actually the first video we got to shoot for the Where's Julian series, this was first time I think I met Toroes and Julian and I really didn't know what he wanted to we winged the whole thing. It was a dope day we were just browsing the store and chopping it up with the owner. This episode we catching up with the only dope boutique in Baltimore PedX as you can see I have some ads on the site thanks to Julian on linking me up with these cats. PedX is definitely a dope shop to have in Baltimore to bring a whole new look and scene to an area that is much needed and that why Julian wanted film it because that was the whole concept of his Where's Julian. I really miss my bro and he will never know how much he really inspired me to do great things.


Jared Evan – Traffic Light (prod. !llmind)

Dope track from Jared havent heard much from the singer/mc but he always delivers on some dope productions.


Phil Ade – P.O.P (Paper Over Pu**y) f. Casey Veggies (Video)

Yeaa Ive been bumping this track in the whip since these to dropped this song. I'm glad to see Phil Ade grinding and getting his shine, def feel like 2012 will be a big year for the young DMV MC. For past couple years seeing him just freestyling at CP and talking bout being signed to 368 to now making great music and developing into such a dope artist.

I am not big on watches I'll wear them every now and then but just not big on accessories on me but I do enjoy seeing them. This device is sick! Just something real creative and out the norm when it comes to watches I would definitely like rocking this. The device has taken some styles from the smartphones everyone love and brought in the slide effect with this watch to go to each setting of the watch. Really dope idea but not right now for that price of 9 stacks!!

AWWWW SNAP! I put a 50 track on the site lol that's a major step for me their but 50 has been going in the right direction lately with his music and glad to see that there is a possible chance we can get classic 50 and not Curtis. I possibly could have just posted the video because of the booty but who knows you go ahead and decide.


Add-2 - Modern Day Coons

These are the tracks that set you apart from all the MC's that are out, Add-2 hitting all the major points that many of us young black youth or at least the ones I associate myself with talk about on daily basis. From all the shows to music that they exploit us in. I like to hear real tracks, I want MC's to have the passion for their music but as well have a real meaning to the tracks they deliver and my man Add-2 did it justice on this tracks Open your eyes folks.

The Green Street fam sends over thew visuals to dope song they did linking up with Tanya Morgan. I be getting a lot of dope music from all types of artist and some just amaze me with the passion they bring but it confuses when I dont see half of these cats hitting the big blogs but eh I guess I wouldn't have a job if that was the case LOL. 


Eyedeal Bayano - Good Feeling

Love to see tracks ive seen my homies actually work on and the progress it took them actually come out so dope. This instrumental is crazy and when my man played it I was like yea your about to rip this. Keep a look out for the homies next project though he been grinding out to make this perfect. My man has improved so much as an MC gotta be proud of that and he only can get better. The track tells a story and that's what a lot cats are missing but he hit it on this one.

Mikey Rocks x Boldy James at The Air Up There

My bro Toroes directed and wrote this dope short film, I really am blessed to know so many talented people who are really grinding out here for what they want. This film is some real stuff, this can happen at anytime and people don't realize them pushing people can bring them to that limit.

Troubled (A Story Of Truth)

Received different type info about an artist with this Film, which documents the life of the MC and looks more into as a overall person. Always enjoy getting Mini Documentary/Short Films to throw on the site.

Chronicling the life and times of Truth (born Iad Carson), Shawn Collins (Director) paints an honest an often unpretentious portrait of the struggling Hip-Hop artist's uncompromising attitude toward the music business, fashion, and most importantly - fatherhood.


Phil Ade x Casey Veggies– P.O.P (Paper Over Pu**y)

NICE! Glad to see this link up of artist, Phil Ade has a range to hop on many different beat selection that many artist cant and that show the talent that he really has. Phil Ade links with young Casey Veggies on this track, this is a real CV type of track as well so I really enjoyed this one. I am telling you keep look out for Phil Ade to make some crazy moves soon he has already done so much in the past 2 years.


Akello Light-Green Tea Mint 2: New Age Hippie

Havent received any dope mixes from this artist in awhile, usually gives me some dope tracks to just to rock to in the whip. Akello Light def brings a crazy vibe to music with different type of mixes and innovative style plus I always enjoy the album art can never complain on dope images of sexy females.

This North Carolina creative artist magical ability to make tripped-out beats that satisfy both the weed head and the hardcore B-Boy/Girl in you is the vibe. Akello’s laid-back hazy tripped-out smooth sound is the foundation for this project.



The 90's back? No complaints over here I guess its just Nostalgic feel but its cool glad to see
new revamp styles come from all different areas now. We have this Florida native SpaceGhostPurrp who brings new sound to Miami but nothing strange to the city because he has a classic old school Miami sound with an Three 6 and Easy-E type twist to this. I guess we can call this the new rebel era of hip hop with many different changes happening in the game, I believe SpaceGhostPurrp is associated with A$AP Rocky as you can kind of tell by the style of music they have and easy influences in each of their music possible dope features in near future.

Check out this track – Don’t Give a Damn (Miami Bass)


DWade - This Flight


Terrace Martin – Do It Again f. Kendrick Lamar & Wiz Khalifa (Video)


James Rich – “Gourmet”

NY trying to start a new movement now, getting a lot of new different styles of Hip Hop coming from up north and getting away from the typical gritty New York sound that we have known for years. Some people may just say just being slightly different is not enough just because everyone is but I like this movement for NY they need something big to keep them a live in this new Hip Hop era. With A$Ap Rocky coming from Harlem and his different style and the rest of his A$AP crew giving a whole new twist to the game as well as other NY MC's like Smoke DZA and Vado I believe New York has finally a range of artist that are not all the same which is a great thing. Hopefully with all these different style of artist NY can have East Coast movement and come up as the West Coast has been doing these past couple years with their young talent out now.
