Blogladder needs me

Some random dude asked me to join This was my response (and I quote):

"in short: fuck you."

Don't beleive me? Check the link.
Next day, I get an e-mail saying that I registered and blah blah blah. So I figured if they wante me so bad, I might as well now that they already registered me. Just goes to show you how much power I hold in this blog community. I bet you wish you were as popular and succesful at life as I am at blogging.

Hot97 Tsunami Song = My bad

After weeks of several racial slurs by Asians directed at Blacks, this whole thing got a huge breakthrough when Bol's "Jig Radio Affairs Bureau Chief", Princess Rock reported that:

Ms. Jones [black] is not the singing voice. The song was voiced by Rick Delgado [guessing hispanic], DJ Envy [hispanic].

So I responded:

I, as a certified spic, admit it was all my fault. Asians, please come to my blog ( with all sorts of stereotypes and racial slurs and call me a racist. thank you.

So let it begin. It's all that DJ Envy's fault. Plus I got his mixtape free and still thought I was almost ripped off. So fuck him. They act like I'm going to shoot all Asians.

Sorry, my mic got "clipped".

South Park Character Builder

I would provide you with my etensive Iraq election commentary, but I'm too busy building my own South Park character (spotted via Ian's Blog).

I don't look like this.

Someone Shoot Paris Hilton

I dont feel like making a graphic right now. Use your imagination.

If there is one person that is so irrelevant to my life yet so often included in it, its Paris Hilton. First, let's start with the name. Paris is a guy's name. Hilton is a rich person's name. If there's one thing that doesn't turn me on, it's rich males, especially French ones. Her parents opened the door to a lot of bad jokes (Did you know it only costs $5 to get inside the Paris Hilton?). Second off, is her complete lack of any talent or intelligence WHATSOEVER. Her acting is....terrible. Her singing is...much worse. She is a stereotypically stupid dumb blonde. She is a complete and total slut. We all can see right thru the sex tape (not like "watching it the whole way thru") and see that it was a marketing ploy. No one knew who she was until she gave a blowjob to a guy twice her age on camera. Also, she is ugly as hell. She is incredibly flat, and waaay to skinny. She puts on a ton of makeup. In the end, she looks like a rectangular sack of bones with eyeliner. Her accent is beyond annoying. And lastly, she is a racist bitch. Weekend Update reported that the "n-word" is clearly heard during her sex tape. I also heard from Chris Rock on Conan O'Brien that his HBO special was on. I wonder if these 2 events concided...and if he called Chris Rock a certain racial slur. Someone D/L it (for reaserch purposes, of course) and tell me...

"Fuck that! Do that shit! Shoot that bitch! / Can you afford to blow this shit? Are you that rich? / Why you give a fuck if she dies? Are you that bitch?"

"FUCK slittin her throat, CUT THIS BITCH'S HEAD OFF!!!"

I'm going to hell when I die.

See. That's the type of shit I'm talking about.
If you see my profile, you'll see I listed "Religion" as my industry. I said I was a "Preacher/Ex-Con". I impersonated a preacher once. I wrote a post called "God approves of my site" and look at the end is says "AS TOLD BY GOD TO DJXPLICIT". And of course, the new "Trinity Church" banner.
Haha, who am I kidding? God loves my site.

"When I was 12, I went to hell for snuffin Jesus"
"This is Nas, kid, you know how it runs
I'm waving automatic guns at nuns
Sticking up the preachers in the church, I'm a stone crook
Serial killer, who works by the phone book"

"I' m hard, Jehova said I'm banned from the pearly gates,
Fuck em, I didn't wanna go to Heaven anyway,
But my mama got me on my knees with my hands gripped,
Talkin about some praise the Lord shit,
Hail Mary? Fuck her! I never knew her,
I probably screw her, and dump her body in the sewer"

Bitin-ass dj's (or sum isht liek dat)

First off, there's DJ LRM. He fuckin stole my initials! All of them! If you see his tapes, theyre mostly all-instrumental tapes, meaning he d/l'ed some instrumentals from Kazaa and burned it into a CD and called it a day.

But more importantly, is this piece of trash. DJ Explicit? What kinda bullshit is that? I already made it all kool-lookin without "E", space and caps. djxplicit. Like that. And all this kid's tapes are bullshit dirty south tapes, which he then realeases a "Screwed and Chopped Version" of. That means he changed the color scheme of the cover art and slowed down every song. That bitch.

Currently I am in talks with Skillz in Virgina to write some sort of diss record for me. I'll pay him the $5 flat fee for writing and recording, and I'll produce some sort of beat. Get ready, bitches.

"Ain't they like $8?"

Nah, we agreed at $5.

Review 2

Nas & Statik Selektah - The Prophecy

01 - Nas Prophecy Introduction Not Rated
Just some samples and some talking introducing the tape.

02 - Reporting Live from Central Park Not Rated
Another intro, Nas at a concert from Central Park. Whatever. Get into the mixtape, dammit!

03 -
Wiseguys feat Styles P (World Premier) 3.5 Stars
A flashy beat that doesn't sound over-produced, claps and a lot of orchestral instruments. Nas's verse is a lot of bragging, but Nas pulls it off, somewhat. Styles P does the usual gangsta rap, and he pulls it off even less. A dissapointing track.

04 -
Push It Up (Prod D-Dot) 4 Stars
The beat, produced by D-Dot of Notorious B.I.G. fame, uses very nice drumming and strings on the background. Nas puts up another "New York State of Mind"-type verse (although, obviously not as good). It's just 1 verse, so it doesn't tire the listener.

05 - Jonesin' feat Scram Jones (Prod Scram Jones) 4.5 Stars
I always thought this kid Scram Jones had talent, and the beat re-affirms that. Warr-ish, with trumpets and military drumming and horns. Nas spits his best verse in this mixtape yet. Scram, who, to my knowledge at least, is white, sounds suprisingly non-corny. His voice is baritone and graspy, sounding almost like Shyne (who in turn sounds like Biggie) but with not such a low pitch. Scram doesn't dissapoint, it's another punchline-filled verse, even switching his beats.

06 - Serious feat AZ 5 Stars
This track was for whatever reason, cut from Street's Disciple. The beat is active, with piano samples and crazy drumming and trumpet samples. Nas and AZ trade bars, which is always special. Very nice track.

07 -
Nas Interlude Not Rated
NO ONE CARES. If I wanted to listen to a Nas speak his mind, I would on an interview, but right now, I want to listen to his music. Damn.

08 - Eastside Story feat The Ghost & Biggie 4.5 Stars
The beat uses a some light piano keys and a nice bassline, plus a synth in the background. This is the "Westside Story" instrumental, I think. Nas, of course, drops a very nice verse. Then "The Ghost" comes in, who, unfortunately he's not Ghostface. Apeareantly he's from D-Block. He sounds like Styles P, its punchline-filled and entretaining, but not all that great. Then they sample Biggie from "If I Die for a Wake", and of course its good.

09 - Nas for President Interlude Not Rated
This is actually interesting on a first listen. But then, you never wanna hear it again.

10 -
Dead Prezidence 5 Stars
This uses Jay-Z's "Dead Presidents" instrumental, which samples Nas's "The World Is Yours Remix". Then puts "The World Is Yours Remix" acapella over it. It works very well.

11 -
Live From Central Park Not Rated
Can this motherfucker play 2 songs straight? I mean, if this was the 1st time, itd be cool but...

12 - Virgo (FreshFest Remix) feat Luda, Doug Fresh & Slick Rick 2 Stars
Slick Rick only does the intro and sings at the end. And they put extra beatboxing from Doug E. Fresh, plus a piano. It'd be much better if they had Slick Rick do a verse, and just use completely different beatboxing, instead of putting more shit on the original beatboxing.

13 - Nas Interlude 2 Not Rated
Fuck, man, play 2 songs through. I mean, its interesting to hear what Nas has to say, but right now, I want music.

14 - Stay Chizzled 2005 feat Prodigy (New Lyrics) 5 Stars
Using a deep, funk-inspired bassline and sped up string samples, the beat is actually great. Nas drops another nice verse, and Prodigy comes in with a suprisingly good verse, considering this *is* 2005. Nas comes in with a second verse that is better than the other 2. Cool shit.

15 - Affirmative Action 2004 feat AZ & Cormega (New Nas Verse) 4 Stars
I didn't know this pella was out. They use Fabo's "Breathe" instrumental, and I just love how they put that active beat instead of the original solo Italian-inspired, relax beat. AZ spits some nice stuff. I think he's very underrated. Mega's debut verse was meh, even though he is really good. Nas spits a new verse, and it's twice as long, with multisyllables and a stream-of-consciousness style.

16 -
Sosa vs The State feat AZ (Prod Dr. Dre) 5 Stars
This AZ/Nas/Dre combination obviously means this is one of those unreleased Firm tracks. Dre shoots for a cinematic feel, achiveing it with orchestra-type instrumentation to build a tension accentuated by AZ's story of facing the judge. Nas storytells on AZ, telling the same story about AZ's trouble with the law, except from the prosecution's perspective. Great and original.

17 - Life's Still A Bitch feat AZ (Prod Mad) 3 Stars
This mixes the classic "Life's A Bitch" song by Nas & AZ. I don't know who Mad is (Madlib?), but this beat, with it's sped-up singing on the hook which carries over to the same melody except with instruments and vocalizing. It actually turn more interesting later with interesting a violin sample, except a sped-up singing "Ah" sample ruins it. The hook sounds cool with that melody and vocalizing. AZ, of course, drops his best verse ever, and Nas doesn't dissapoint either. The beat seems more suited for Nas, although the sped-up vocal sample still sorta ruins it. Obviously, this is not as good as L.E.S.'s original or The Arsenal's b-side remix of the song, but the lyrics are still amazing, while the beat is not enough to ruin it.

18 - Nas Interlude 3 Not Rated
Pretty interesting, if not for showing Nas's huge, erratic ego speaking a little there.

19 - For The Love of You feat The Isley Brothers 5 Stars
AKA "Good Morning". This a song cut from "Street's Disciple", it is ill, describing shit that happens in this morning. It has an Isley Brothers sample.

20 - U.B.R. (Golden Era Mix) 3 Stars
U.B.R. was a pretty good track, even though the beat was so-so. They use "golden era" samples like the bassline from "Paid In Full" or the electric guitar from "Rock Box" all over the orignal beat. Interesting, but not for a while.

21 -
Faster Life feat Kool G Rap (80's Blend) 5 Stars
They use 80's beats. I don't know what the first beat is, but it works, even if it's a little to mellow. Nas is great, and G. Rap absolutely kills it. After Nas's verse, they use the music from Dennis Edwards & Siedah Garrett's "Don't Look Any Further", scratching it to extend it through Nas's & G. Rap's back-and-forth.

22 - Analyze This (No Love Lost) feat Jay-Z 4 Stars
This is the rumored Nas/Jay-Z/Lord Tariq track. Well, Jay-Z and Tariq made a song called "No Love Lost" with Shaq. For whatever reason, someone merged those Jay-Z and Tariq vocals with this Nas song called "Analyze This". Tariq's vocals are cut on this version, and they add some samples. The beat is very light using high-pitched samples, and horn hits and a low bass. Jay-Z and Nas's verses are straight 90's stuff. Jay-Z's performance suffers from being too repetitive. Nas drops a much better verse, not "Illmatic" shit, but good shit regardless.

23 - Thief's Theme feat ODB & Low Key (DJ Premier ''Pop Shots'' Remix) 5 Stars
Shit. This is uses the DJ Premier-produced "Pop Shots" instrumental , and adds UK artist Low Key, who is good, but he can't hang with Nas and ODB. Nas is amazing, and ODB is ODB.

24 - You Know My Style (Showoff Records Remix) 3 Stars
This is a lackluster Nas performance. It's good, but it could have been, much better. The beat is light-hearted, with a flute sample, it all sounds 80's pop or some shit. It works suprisingly well, though.

25 - 1 Plus 1 feat Large Proffesor (Unreleased) 4.5 Stars
Large Pro drops another laid-back instrumental, it sounds like "You're Da Man", with a soft piano sample. Nas drops another street poetry verse, except he brags a little too much. Large Pro drops a verse that impresses me. A good combination of artists, and a good song.

26 - How We Live feat Termanology 5 Stars
This sounds vaguely reminiscent of "One Mic" in its soft stages. Obviously it doesn't have the same build-up or epic feel, but it has a similar instrumentation and drumming. Nas goes with street poetry built on references and metaphors, although some could be seen as old or tired (the Jerry McGuire reference, for example), but I'm guessing this is because this song is old and not released until now. Some chick drops a pretty good hook. Termanology (?) comes in and impresses me alot, he actually might have out-rhymed Nas. The beat breaks down during his verse gradually, accentuating the "One Mic" feel. Great song.

27 - Imagine feat John Lennon 5 Stars
This uses "Imagine" by John Lennon as a background, and some singing. Nas drops a real nice verse, I posted the lyrics a bit back. Best song on here.

28 - Nas Outro Not Rated
Nas speaks about the DJ's the record companies, the CD, etc. over a re-worked "One Love" beat, something I actually like. For whatever reason, there's 50 seconds of silence after this. No, there is no hidden track.
An inconsistent mixtape, with its fair share of ups and downs. Nas fans will eat it up, but the casual listener better be ready to hit that skip button.
Final Score: 4.04761905 (Not kidding).
Rounded to: 4 Stars Out Of 5

You bitches.

My sister lost my mom's debit card, meaning we had to pay everything with cash. She gave me $10 and literally told me "go buy something to eat". I, obviously, went to the Giant and bought some Wing Zings (spicy chicken wings). I came home ate 8 wings, I left and my sister came in and ate some. Then for whatever reason, she didn't put the wings container in the fridge. She kinda just left it there. Predicitabily, I later saw an the top of the container on the floor. I was like "No!"...and then I saw the empty container on the floor. My dogs had eaten it. Now, I'm a pretty-laid back sorta guy, and I let a lot of little things go. But no one, NO ONE, fuckin does that to MY CHICKEN WINGS. I let out some scream and then I yelled and manically gestured at my dogs, knowing fully well it had no effect on them. I would have called to bitch at my sister, and even hit/kicked my dogs (something I've never done, cause it just doesn't feel right to hurt something so small) if I wasn't so depressed that I didn't want to talk to anyone and/or do anything. So now I'm hungry, having only eaten chicken wings and one small school pizza the whole day. There is no real food at my house, and I actually don't know what I'm going to eat. Wish me luck.

Don't mess with science AKA the cereal debate

*Conducted by the master and the good folks at Super Villain Style*
djxplicit09: can i ask you a very personal question?
Stokey Ross: Go.
djxplicit09: what is your favorite cereal?
Stokey Ross: Golden Grahams.
djxplicit09: really? the ones with the bear in a blue shirt?
Stokey Ross: Blue shirt? I have no idea.
djxplicit09: so what does the golden grahams box look
like? just yellow-ish? does it have a mascot?

djxplicit09: now i remember...
djxplicit09: its the yellow one with the spoon and the
square-shaped cereal!

Stokey Ross: Yeah that's it.
djxplicit09: ok - the one i was thinking of was golden
crisp. it has this brown bear with a blue shirt on the front
of the box

Stokey Ross: I don't eat cereal with funny little cartoon
characters. It's beneath me.

djxplicit09: my favorite cereal count chocula - does he
count as a "funny little cartoon character"?

Stokey Ross: Hell yeah. The effed up pointed ass
head. The effed up teeth.

djxplicit09: whatever. i wasnt ever drawn by the
character. its the promise of chocolate with chocolate

djxplicit09: ...and then they pretend that its good for you
Stokey Ross: Might as well shot sugar in your veins.
djxplicit09: hell yeah!
Stokey Ross: Fiendin for CocoPuffs.
djxplicit09: yeah - but they lack marshmellows. and the
regular cereal bits arent as good anyway

Stokey Ross: But the sugar at the bottom of the bowl.
And the nasty brown milk. MMMM delicious.

djxplicit09: i thought silly cartoon characters were
beneath you

Stokey Ross: They are. At least until I contradict

djxplicit09: trix is overrated
Stokey Ross: I agree. Nasty.
Stokey Ross: I'm also against them Frosted Flakes
djxplicit09: Theyre meh. Theyre not exactly "nasty" tho
Stokey Ross: Oh yeah. they're nasty. And too sugary
Stokey Ross: And Frosted Flakes get too mushy.
djxplicit09: yeah. thats a problem.
djxplicit09: one question - milk first or cereal first?
Stokey Ross: Cereal first.
Stokey Ross: When milk is first, you don't get the
maximum of cereal in the bowl.

djxplicit09: im a milk first guy. im insane, i know. i
actually was suprised to find out people put their cereal
in first

djxplicit09: see - i pour cereal in spurts
djxplicit09: to maximize content
Stokey Ross: Man, it's all about getting as much cereal
in the bowl as possible.

Stokey Ross: because you always will have an excess
of milk in the end.

djxplicit09: but then you just put more cereal in
djxplicit09: thats what i do - i put more cereal as needed to have each spoonful with maximum cereal content
Stokey Ross: But then the cereal falls over on the table
out of the bowl.

djxplicit09: why does the cereal fall over?
Stokey Ross: All that liquid. The cereal floats.
Stokey Ross: You put more in, the cereal falls over.
djxplicit09: you dont fill the milk to the top of the bowl -
the bowl is around 3/4 or less full

Stokey Ross: Too much trouble.
djxplicit09: its automatic for me. ive done it all my life
djxplicit09: again - i know im insane
Stokey Ross: Fill the bowl up with cereal to the top.
Put weight on the cereal. Add milk.

Stokey Ross: You'll still get floatage. But you'll have
maximum cereal yield.

Stokey Ross: It's science
djxplicit09: hahaha
Stokey Ross: Come on, dammit.
Stokey Ross: Einstein put that crap in the theory of

Stokey Ross: It's all about gravity
Stokey Ross: e=mc2
Stokey Ross: Don't mess with science
djxplicit09: m= milk
djxplicit09: c=cereal
djxplicit09: e=enjoyment
Stokey Ross: Something like that.
djxplicit09: enjoyement equals milk times cereal squared

Stokey Ross: Dude. You just gave me inspiration
Stokey Ross: Like Jesus or something
Stokey Ross: I might have a real theory workin in a day or two.
Stokey Ross: I'm getting all hyped up with the

djxplicit09: theory about what?
djxplicit09: and who's jesus in your simile? me?
Stokey Ross: Cereal, man. CEREAL
Stokey Ross: I haven't put it all together yet.
djxplicit09: jesus is cereal?
djxplicit09: whaaaaaaaaa?
Stokey Ross: Yeah. Go with that
Stokey Ross: Twix is the messiah
djxplicit09: twix? what is that? isnt that some sort of

Stokey Ross: Whatever. Yeah. I don't know.
djxplicit09: yeah - its those chocolate bars which have 2 in each package
Stokey Ross: Yeah, cookie, then caramel, then

Stokey Ross: That's the top candy bar.
Stokey Ross: Plus you get two

me = poor

These are pictures of stuff in my room (except the first one) which pretty much defines my poorness.

That is my family's first TV. It cost $2 at a garage sale. As you can see, it lacks 5/7 buttons and doesnt have a remote. Meaning you cant actually change the channel without technical equipment and/or risking your life.

This is a picture of the only light source in my room. It is a lamp that is broke down on its neck. As you can see, the white cover thing (whatever it's called) has sustained heavy damage. Behind it is my window, which doesn't close, and I try to cover half-assedly using some gay towel I found.

Now. This is a TV in my room (and the only other one, might I add). It's pretty old and pretty small, although the remote's 6, 2, and volume buttons dont work. Meaning if I want to turn it up, I have to get up and change it manually. BTW - bet you a dollar you can't find where the volume control is. It doesn't look all that bad except...

That. It has a large burn (or melt) mark on the side, and you it ocassionally looses all its volume. To make it regain its volume, I have to get up and smack it. No joke.

Now...tell me that isnt the ghetto-est antenna you've ever seen in your life. As I have previously stated, I don't have cable or nothing like that, so I watch NBC and FOX and even that shitty Spanish channel. But notice the left antenna is all bent and shit, while the right is broken and taped and rubber band'ed and shit.

That's my headphones. Terrifying isn't it? So obviously I don't have an iPod, or a cellphone. My family's car is a Toyota Echo. Yeah. We rent this house. Yeah. Discover Card calls like crazy. We never pick up. Oh - and I took all those pictures with a digital camera that the school owns. No, my family does not own any type of camera. But I can't complain. I could be out like my cousins areNT, illegally and NOT in Texas. Actually, we got this house cause of a legal complaint in which the landlord of our old house had to give money to us (long story). The last house (which this kid visited) had my mother sleeping on the couch since there were only 2 rooms. No joke. And some 4 years ago, I was legally homeless for 6 months. I need to take pictures of my old house in the big GUA. I still visit there every year, since my cousins (on the other side of my family) live there now. conclusion, I can't complain. Thanks for letting me bitch about my personal finances, though.

Cutting = Beautiful

I am outraged at other's comments about cutting. Cutting is art, and it is beautiful. I am attracted on a regular basis to women who have exotic patterns on their forearms. It is natural. Since the beggining of the late Middle Ages, people have cut themselves to show power, beauty, or for other reasons. In the present, it has many functions. Some still do it for art, or because they "[like] to see blood" (according to one cutter, who I assume wants to be kept anonymous). Obviously, some people beleive blood to have purposes in magical and medicinal potion-making. Because of this, some do it when in dire times because the combination of blood with oxygen touching a person's hands is said to releive depression. It also gives off a sort of fume which reacts with the basic predator consciousness in human instinct. This creates an "addiction" of sort, but a healthy one, since it prevents hydroencephalitis and diphtheria in pre-adults. Not only that, it heighten's a person's self-esteem, and as I have mentioned, shows power and beauty. In short cutting is natural and beautiful, just like masturbation.

Know what I hate?

When people side-step your questions. Like when President Bush does it. Well, most politicians do it, but Bush especially. Another much more recent (and insignificant) example is Fitz evading my questions about The Who. I could go on with more personal and significant examples, but its not worth it. Just know that it kinda pisses me off more than anything else a person could do when I ask them a question. Especially if it's repeated more than twice. Whetever.

A word about Mike Vick

So. Fitz and I had this discussion on him. I'll spare you the conversation, as I'm sure it's boring to other people. He basically said that Atlanta could have any other average QB like Jake Delhomme or Byron Leftwich and still be as good. I disagree with that notion. If anyone remembers - a pretty average QB played for Atlanta last year, subbing in for Vick. And we all now how that went. Say what you say about McNabb, but the Eagles last year had 2 average (and even some would say below-average) QB's subbing in for him, and they won 4 straight. But anyway - Mike Vick is one of the most naturally gifted QB's in the league. The problem is consistancy. But no one can doubt his arm. It is amazing. And certainly, no one can doubt his legs. Defensive Coordinators don't gameplan against his throwing, running, and throwing while running for the fun of it. He can make plays no one else can. On third-and-17, I would rather have Vick than possibly any other QB in the league. Obviously, not every play is third-and-17, and so Vick will make mistakes. But he's young, and, with all his natural talent, he will become an elite passer someday. As of now, he can make big plays or bad ones, and that's why you couldn't ever count the Falcons out - because of his big plays. Atlanta lost because Vick had more mistakes than big plays. And ultimately - Vick could have carried the average Falcons if he had all big plays. Unfortunately, he had more mistakes - and look where the Falcons are at now.

My Conference predictions = absolutely right

Guess Who's Right?
Guess who's rizight?
Back on the blog with the old
xpl goin "i told you so"
Don't make me relapse
Back to the blog with a cold
Cuz this NFL shit is all I know

PS - I do have a light cold because of shovelin snow, but more importantly, I have a backache cause of that shit. But my predictions are right, so you know if you want to bet on the Superbowl, just wait for my post.

Conference Champinship Predictions

Yeah, first game is in 1/2 an hour. Here are the official LTDMK predictions:

Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have been in this position before. The last three years, in fact. This time, however, Philadelphia hopes to get it right after losing three straight NFC championship games, the last two at home. But while the Eagles will be the first NFL team to host three straight conference title games, the Falcons are no strangers to pulling off the upset on the road. They beat the Vikings in Minnesota in the 1998 NFC Championship Game to get to their lone Super Bowl appearance.

The Falcons are an attractive upset pick, with the X factor, QB Mike Vick. However, the Eagles defense will not allow for RB's Warrick Dunn and T.J. Duckett to control the game. Vick will have to win with his arm by passing, something the Falcons as a whole are far too inconsistant to do against such a great secondary as Philly's. The Falcons will also be bothered constantly by D-Cordinator Jim Johnson's famously exotic blitz packages, especially with FB Fred McCrary still familarizing himself with Atlanta's blocking schemes. Philly's RB Brian Westbrook underrated running and QB Donovan McNabb leadership seals the deal for the Eagles.

--Pick: Philadelphia---

New England Patriots at Pittsburg Steelers

The Patriots are a game away from their third Super Bowl trip in four seasons. Standing in the way, however, is the same Steelers team that halted New England's NFL-record 18-game winning streak -- 21 in a row including playoffs -- back in Week 8. This time around, however, the Patriots will have RB Corey Dillon. But New England isn't the only team looking for redemption. The Patriots and Steelers tangled in the 2001 AFC Championship Game at Heinz Field -- and New England got the better of its hosts.

The Steelers are the obvious choice - they seem unstoppable. Howeveer, I think you can never count out the Patriots. They are a team with a brilliant head coach that knows how to win. The defense, with or without howmever, can stop anyone. They proved that last week. Even without their top DL man, E/T Richard Seymour, and without their best cover man, CB Ty Law, they beat the top ranked passing team in the league, and contained record-shattering QB Peyton Manning to 0 touchdowns and contained star RB Edgerrin James to 46 yards on a 3.1 average with no touchdowns and no first downs. A rookie, Steelers QB Ben Rothelisberger, as good as he is, will have trouble against a Bill Belichick D. Plus, there has been more games to study Rothelisberger's play. RB Corey Dillon will be the difference maker in this re-match, his powerful running will allow New England to pass more freely.

--Pick: New England---

Hot Karl has a blog?
According to HAHG, that is Hot Karl's blog. Who? You know....Hot Karl. That guy....he had a song with Eminem on some mixtape...ahhh, forget it. I only heard him once, on that Eminem song. He is a white rapper, and his CD is dropping April 19th. His blog is interesting but not special.

Lord Finesse acapella freestyle

Props to Robbie's A Tribute to Ignorance.

Real-Audio Stream.
MP3 file (lower qual). Mirror 1. Mirror 2. Mirror 3.

I couldn't record the .ram on my computer using rawavrecorder, so I had to play it thru my speakers into the microphone, which explains the loss of quality. I digitally re-mastered it, so it's not that bad at all.


    "Jungle Boogie" by Kool & the Gang Okay, this is an old song, but its still cool. Can you argue with something EPMD sampled like 26 times?

    "Ain't No Half-Steppin" by Big Daddy Kane Classic BDK. The lyrical display is straight 80's, and the beat is fun, but mellow.

    "It Ain't Hard to Tell" by Nas Classic Nas. The last song of of "Illmatic", produced ny Large Pro. A jazzy feel and MJ samples accentuate one of the most impressive lyrical displays ever.

    "Latinos" by Proyecto Uno This is only a sample, and it can't really capture the intensity of the 6-minute song. This was a radio single, and its actually really a miracle the radio would play such a long song. The other songs were 8 or 10 or 12 minutes long. It was something like an 80 minute CD with 12 songs. This song is part Spanish, part English, part salsa, part merengue, part reggae, part house, part R&B, part rap, all party. They should make that the tagline.

    "T.R.O.Y." by Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth Featuring storytelling from CL and one of the most memorable beats ever by Pete R., with its saxophone sample. Classic.

    "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'" by The Wu-Tang Clan RZA creates an incredibly head-bobbing beat, using vocal samples and oriental instrumentation, while U-God and Masta Killa drop their best verses ever. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface and Raekwon are their usual incredible selves. Method Man lends his graspy voice to the chorus. ODB is ODB.

    "Se Acabo" by The Beatnuts featuring Magic Juan & Swinger This is some Latin American convention or something. Beatnuts members Juju and Psycho Les are from Puerto Rico and Colombia, respectively. Magic Juan from Proyecto Uno is from the Dominican Republic and Swinger is from...I don't know who he is. Whatever. Where's Peru's own, Immortal Technique?

    "Hot Sauce In The Dick Hole" by DJ Q*Bert Yeah, I don't get the title either, but remember Q*Bert is part of a group called the Invisbl Skratch Piklz. Q*Bert has crazy scratches, he is one of the better turntablists out there.

    "The Nature of the Threat" by Ras Kass The song that inspired this blog. Epic, almost 8 minutes. (Disclaimer: The views promoted in this song are not necessarily those of the LTDMK staff or Pyra, Inc.)

    "I Used To Love H.E.R." by Common Sense An incredible story, which in the end has a suprise ending. One of the most incredible extended metaphors ever.

Imagine - Nas Verse

Imagine we can all get along,
Won't be long, till that day comes,
Mothers, stop cookin, take off your aprons,
Fathers, stop lookin at every sport station,
Take a second, and think of every poor nation,
Makin weapons, they can't afford to play, no proper healthcare,
Over here, Section 8, a lot on welfare
Yo, the wealthy laugh, the market crash, economy's bad,
How do we change it? Newsflash about a power that's dangerous,
How do we escape these brainless acts of terror?
I tell you how, if Jesus ever comes to knock me be better,
Put our hearts in the right place,
Humans of all colors will stand up as one race,
I promise you one day...
Imagine that

Fuck it.

I can't compete with Ronny Octavius. I quote:

"Fuck this blog. This blog can eat shit, at least until next week."

...which is exactly how I'm feeling. However , if you have checked his latest post, you will see what I mean by "I can't compete". However, I guess I have to for the legions of fans. Here goes:

I Intellectually Beat The Shit out of a Racist Guy
Who has a blog I will not link to, since I don't enjoy linking to racists like that. Allow me to show a little of the back-and-forth.

racist guy: I guess my point is: A) Black people, you cannot get my sympathy. This is the land of opportunity. B)Just look at those black guys on MTV cribs with the talking ferraris and the jets with swimming pools in them. I mean, this 'oppressed' business is losing credibility, stop milking it.

me: was it intentional for your argument to so closely follow the arguements presented for segregation in Brown v. Board? they said, "look at all these wonderful black people who aren't poor! segregation obviously isnt hurting blacks because look at W.E.B. Dubois. a wonderful human being! surely segragation cant be that bad if someone like him comes out of it!"

obviously, he could not actually admit to being racist, he had to find a way to shift the attention from his flawed logic.

racist guy: I guess you are right. There really is no sense in having ambitions. You're right. Blacks are just plain hopeless. Why even try. I guess the other 98% are just destined to be poor ghetto guys, and there's no reason to think otherwise. I love how you think.

I will never visit and/or mention that blog again. Just one last response:

Whew! Really dodged a bullet there. Instead of conceding you are in basic agreement with the people who oppose the descision of Brown v. Board, you claim to be helping blacks (a classic KKK strategy, btw) and saying I am being racist. I never said a person shouldn't have ambitions. My point is, the government sets people up to be poor. To fail. And a few outstanding people can get by, and get rich, but the vast majority can't. Not very many are born outsanding basketball players or businessmen, and those who don't unfortuanetly, have a lowered opportunities. For example, George W. Bush is accepted at Harvard and Yale for being rich, white, and the President's son, while the average poor man or woman does not have that advantage. The one thing I'm NOT saying is be a conformist and let it be that way. No. Just like the people in Brown v. Board didn't say "segregation damages people, but oh well, too bad". Change must occur. And people like you who ignore it and say the problem doesn't exist are the people who are doing everything in their power NOT to change and NOT to fix the problem. In other words, the problem's not "liberals who make people want to be poor" by giving them help when they really need it. The problem is the average citizen who elects leaders who don't want to do anything about the problem, and if anything, only worsen it. I'm out of this forever. Don't even bother responding. Have a good day.

P.S. - If you want to talk to the racist guy, his AIM is evilnursemask. He is always ready to blame "liberals" for anything and entretain you with stupid ideology like saying that MLK would be a Republican (even though he opposed Vietnam, which is what Bush II wants to re-create, and even though MLK wanted economic equality between races, something Bush II quitely opposes, and even get the point).

Another crazy comparison

John Lennnon & Nas.

In a new Nas tape I promise to review soon, I heard Nas put a quick verse on top of the classic-est John Lennon track, "Imagine". This led to this crazy comparison.

Instrumentation: Do I really need to speak on the Beatles here? Lennon's solos, however, were a lot different from his group albums, featuring pianos and flutes and a lot of different, fresh compositions. Nas's songs, at their best, feature DJ Premier's, Pete Rock's, and Large Pro's jazzy, soulful feel. Nas definitely also strives for different sounds, as evidenced in more recent albums like "God's Son" or "Street's Disciple".

Lyrics: Nas's main topic is street poetry and story-telling, plus socially-conscious lyricism and the occasional brag-rap. Lennon went a very similar route, poetic lyrics and story-telling plus social-consciousness.

Other: "If I Ruled the World" is very similar to "Imagine", lyrics-wise. The instrumentation is much different, "If I Ruled the World" is faster and R&B-inspired while "Imagine" is a slower, piano-driven song.

Conclusion: Strangley similar artists. If I had to pick a rapper who most closely resembles Lennon's music, I'd probably pick Nas or maybe Talib Kweli.

Bonus Audio
Nas featuring John Lennon - "Imagine"
Its pretty good for being an obscure, mixtape-only remix.

"Our parents sing like John Lennon, 'Imagine all the people watch'
we rock like Paul McCarteny from now until the last Beatle drop"

Snoop f/ Pharrell & Jay-Z - Drop It Like It's Hot (Remix)

I heard this on that radio station I hate, Hot 99.5. It's pretty bad. The beat sounds exactly like anything else (it loses the percussive tongue clicking and long bass breaks of the original). Jay-Z does some average rap, maybe earning my attention 3 times. "These bitches givin out cases like a liqour store" - that's a pretty cool punchline right there. Itd be better if he was more interesting throughout. I really could have cared less for Snoop's and/or for Pharrell's verses.

P.S. - Isn't Jay-Z retired or something? He has had 2 tours, 2 cd's, and around 8 million mixtape-only songs since he "retired"

How much of a FUCKING LOSER is this motherfucker?

No, not KISS. The fat guy

That's Albie Dee, also known as the "Don of DC", or so his profile says, but I doubt anyone calls him that. He's a "HOT jock" (no homo) at that shitty radio station, Hot 99.5. Not only does he play bad music, but he attempts to stay "relevant" with the "youth" by not ever showing what an ugly, old, fat guy he is. I hate him as much as I hate the annoying-voiced Asian, Julian.

I'm sure he digitally altered that photo, as no human could be around his annoying voice for more than 5 minutes. Yet he has a 3-hour radio show. Even IF Hot 99.5 played good music (which they CLEARLY don't) I would not listen to his show cause of his annoying voice. Fuck DC-area stations.

Chiseven if a fucking genius

Chiseven is posting on the Kanyegate site now. I got an invitation to do so also, and hopefully I can accept it, but my computer is acting up worse than Paris Hilton's herpes and refuses to go to accept the invitation. In the meantime, check my Kanye-hating blog for djxplicit's bashing of Kon the Ashlee Simpson Don.

You dumb motherfuckers

So the other day I was explaining my ban kanye graphic, and talking about how Milli Vanilli is on the left. And I get a big "Who is Milli Vanilli?"

WTF you mean "who is Milli Vanilli?"??!?!?

And then some other people were like "yeah, what is that?". Damn. Quick history:

Milli Vanilli ("milli" is a word meaning "national" in Turkish, picked up by the artists while visiting Turkey on one of its national days) was a duo, Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus, formed in Germany in the mid-1980s. They are notorious for being the only group to have their Grammy Award stripped from them after it was revealed that they had not been involved in the creation of their breakthrough album, Girl You Know It's True and did not sing in concert. Their photos were pictured on the album cover and they lip-synced in concert. They have since been used as an example of utter shallowness in music.

Don't let history repeat itself. Ban Kanye.

Appearently I gotta let these dumb motherfuckers know 24/7 now.

MLK day!

Yeah. I know it's dumb. Let's move on.

Today, I saw a 3 hour documentary up in Silver Spring. It was pretty good, and I won't lie, I almost felt like crying a couple of times. But it was too long for me, 3 hours is a hell of a long time. For the first time in months, I actually feel like watching a movie in the "theaters". The first one is "Hotel Rwanda" which didn't look so good in the previews on TV but I saw a sneak preview on the big screen and I was sold. The second one, which I am more excited to see, is "The Woodsman" which stars the underrated Kevin Bacon, plus Mos Def, who's movies I've always liked even though he rarely has any really big roles. It also stars Kyra Sedgwick (?). I went into the wrong room and saw like the first 10 minutes of" The Woodsman", and it looked good. Happy MLK day...

Public Enemy - "By the Time I Get to Arizona"
10 days after PE played this song on the U2 Concert Tour in Arizona, the governor repealed the law which made today a non-holiday.

Public Enemy - "By the Time I Get to Arizona" (xplicitremix)
Cooked this up in literally record fuckin time. Say 1 minute. Uses the "No Mercy" instrumental.

"Neither party is mine...not the jackass nor the elephant"
He try to keep it yesteryear
The good ol' days, the same ol' ways
That kept us dyin'
Yes, you me myself and I'ndeed
I'm on the one mission
To get a politician to honor
Or he's a gonner
By the time I get to Arizona"

Talib Kweli isn't any good anymore?

I'm sick of the e-thugs over at SOHH saying Kweli isn't good anymore right before listening to their Cam'Ron CD. Yeah, "The Beautiful Struggle" wasn't as good as the last 3 Kweli albums, but really, there were NO albums that topped "Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are..." in 3 years. "The Beautiful Struggle" was just as good as Jay-Z's "Black Album", but it's a step down from older Kweli albums. Still, its good. If you put it together with some "Beautiful Mix CD" songs, I can't beleive someone had that much a better year than that. Kweli put out 30+ songs in the "Beatiful" series which are better than anything Snoop Dogg has put out in 3 years. So in short: shut the fuck up.

"Radio...suckas don't play me cause I won't let 'em"
No, I didn't count "Back Up Offa Me" in my 30+ songs.

Review 1

Joey Fingaz Presents - Nas: Hood Prophet (Remixed By The Chemical Kick Drums)

01 The Genesis Intro Not Rated
This is the same as the Intro on Illmatic except Nas comes in and says "this is the mixtape ...blah blah." A typical "whatever" intro.

02 Hate Me Now (CK Original Remix) 3 Stars
The CK's uses a dramatic strin-orientated beat. It gets annoying after a bit, and "Hate Me Now" isn't necessarily the best song originally. Bonus points for a scratched chorus instead of Puff Daddy.

03 Got Yourself A Gun (CK Original Remix) feat 50 Cent 2.5 Stars, 4 w/o 50 Cent
The beat uses a piano and a synth mainly, plus some strings. It sounds like a Dr. Dre beat, which I guess I s a good thing. I already spoke on how bad 50 Cent makes this song. I just deleted his verse using Goldwave.

04 Stillmatic (CK Original Remix) 5 Stars
Nas's original freestyle intro to "Stillmatic". The CK's imitates the original beat somewhat, with vocalizing samples and epic horns and reverse crashes and everything. Great remix.

05 One Love (CK Original Remix) 4 Stars
First, let me say that I've already heard MF Doom, One L, LG, NYDA and Da Riffs make remixes of this. This one is another good mix, using a keyboard loop and a good bassline and violins and Bob Marley samples on the hook.

06 Nas Is Like (CK Original Remix) feat Big L 5 Stars
Can they do justice to a DJ Premier original? Fortunately, the CK's make a good beat with horns and even a saxophone. Adding Big L is a good touch.

07 Life's a Bitch (CK Original Remix) feat AZ 4 Stars
This is the mix I've been waiting for, since this acapella is so rare. Using carefree soul samples a guitar, and a nice kick/clap combo, the beat is pretty good. Unfortunately, this is does not touch the original or the Arsenal remix that was on the b-side of the single.

Pray For Me (Smoke Break Interlude) 4 Stars
Wtf is this? And ambiental song that is supposed to be for smoking I guess. They use all kinds of psychedelic sound effects, for example a rainstorm or what sounds like a cut and re-sampled cell phone ringing. Other effects such as a scream and a saxophone and the constant hitting of hi-hats plus a bassline reminiscent of maybe Bob Marley make this a good ambient instrumental cut. Not to be played very many times.

The Cross (CK Original Remix) 4 Stars
Moving on. The beat starts with a chorus and an extremely light guitar, but then goes into a beat with a distorted guitar and that ocassional chorus coming back. I like how they cut and mess with the elecric guitar, sometimes reversing it. It's not all that engaging for a long time, though.

King of New York (CK Original Remix) feat Jay-Z 5 Stars
Another epic beat, sampling an orchestra and even an opera singer. They use Nas's "Ether" as a basis, but then they use Jay-Z's verses from "Takeover" to create a 4-line back and forth from Nas to Jay. Pretty damn cool.

Made You Look (Remix) (CK Original Remix) feat Jadakiss & Ludacris 3 Stars
This is a very experimental old-school-ish beat. Techno inspired, somewhat. Sometimes using distorted or compressed drums, and thick synths. It gets interesting when Ludacris's verse starts, using simple distorted beatboxing and light synth sounds. Somewhat annoying after repeated listening. Especially the vocal samples, although the distorted beatboxing and scratching at the end is really good.

The Bridge '04 (CK Original Remix) feat QB's Finest 4 Stars
Another old-school-ish beat, except more early 90's than late 80's. Using orchestral samples, all the QB rhymers get a shine, sometimes with scratched interludes. Pretty good, although the beat like many others, wears the listener down.

Get Down (CK Original Remix) feat Kool G Rap 3.5 Stars
Using horns and hi-pitched samples, as well as synth trumpets and loud snares, this beat sounds like a better version of an Eminem beat. However, it is curiousley ear-pleasing, and the addition of Kool G. Rap should be noted.

Blaze a Fifty (CK Original Remix) 4 Stars
Using a great bassline and nice strings but an annoying vocal sample, the beat fits Nas's graspy storytelling.

Thief's Theme (CK Original Remix) feat Dead Prez 2.25 Stars
This is an annoying beat. Jazz and funk inspired, but with an annoying horn loop, which is the main beat. The vocal samples are nice though. It's sad that the beat isn't better, because adding Dead Prez is a good move.

16 Leatherface (CK Original Remix) feat Big Pun 5 Stars
Uses an electrtic guitar and aggresive drums over the "Leatherface" acapella with a Nas verse. Really nice.

If I Ruled the World 04 (CK Original Remix) 5 Stars
A beatiful sample is used in the intro and for the hook: scratched samples. The beat has a "oh" vocal sample with a light piano and strings, as well as other sounds. The second verse is actually from "Rule".

Mastermind (CK Original Remix) 3 Stars
Uses a somewhat annoying synth in the hook, but a very listenable guitar sample through the verses. A good if not spectacular traack.

Quick to Back Down (CK Original Remix) feat Bravehearts & Lil Jon 2.5 Stars
This sounds exactly like every other dirty south beat, which is a good thing, somewhat. The beat uses typical 808 drumming and threatening strings and synth flutes. Unfortuneately, after Nas's amazing verse, the Bravehearts are not worth listening.

This is mostly a straight-up remix album, allowing all the creativity up to the producers, the Chemical Kickdrums. They explore every type of beat out there, although following the original a bit too closely sometimes. Overall, though unknowns, the CK's pull through, giving an entretaing, if flawed, mixtape.
Final Score: 4.04166667. Not Kiddin.
Rounded to: 4 Stars out of 5.

Nas mixtapes

So I'm going to be on a reviewing Odyssey of 3 Nas mixtapes. They are:

Joey Fingaz Presents - Nas: Hood Prophet (Remixed By The Chemical Kick Drums)
Nas and Statik Selektah - The Prophecy
LOP Presents: Nasir Jones - Carry The Cross (Chapter 2 - The Rebirth)

It'll be a head-to-head contest. Get ready.

The Radio Sucks.

Particularly Hot 99.5. I'm sorry if I'm the only one who doesn't like listening to pop-rap and pop-rock and pop. I'd call this the traditional "wanna be urban 13 year-old white girl station". I mean look at their damn logo:

Well, if it isn' t Britney Spears AKA that bitch. They play Britney next to Simple Plan next to Guerilla Black. Damn, out of those 3, I don't know who I hate the most. But there you go, terrible pop + terrible pop-punk + terrible pop-rap = Hot 99.5.

Why Nas Is Better.

So I was listening to a new Nas mixtape remixed by the "Chemical Kickdrums" (don't ask). So track 3 was "Got Yourself A Gun (CK Original Remix) feat 50 Cent". I was like "OK, whatever." I listened to the mix and even tho I wouldn't call "Got Yourself A Gun" Nas's best (by FAR) it was so completely evident he was better than 50 Cent in every single way. I'm talking:
* Breath Control
* Flow (no mumbling)
* Voice
* Multi-syllables
* Varied Rhyme Schemes

And of course, lyrics. Nas might seem like he is saying "go get a gun", but really he is making fun of all these rappers who go get guns (alliteration!) to make themselves look "hard". The 50 Cent verse they put in is a him talking about getting another gun so he is "harder".

Random Rapper on the U Peoples Network next week

Ban Kanye. I don't know...I'm out.

Thursday, January 13, 2005

I don't have cable/ with it, bitches

So I was watching the U Peoples Network and was just SHOCKED to find out that they were the highest-rated network for African-American's on Wednesday. Next you're gonna tell me that that shitty-ass Spanish channel is the highest rated network for Walmart workers. They even went so far as to ask why this was, and said something about "originality". Riiiiiight. It doesn't have to do with the fact that random rappers show up on the shows every week? No, people watch because it is executively produced by Kelsey Grammer (true, btw).

The only sitcoms worth watching regularly are "Seinfeld", "My Wife & Kids" and the "George Lopez Show" (not that I actually do that, btw). "Seinfeld" is easily the best because of just plainly being funnier. "My Wife & Kids" is pretty funny also, and it doesn't rely on the fact that its a "black" show by having Lil' Bow Wow or whoever every other day. "The George Lopez" show is actually funny too, and you gotta give extra points for casting Masiela Lusha, who is Turkish, as the attractive half-Mexican half-Cuban 16 year-old. Moving on...

Easily the best non-comedic show on television is "Law & Order" (the original, altho the other 2 are pretty good). The acting and storylines are OUTSTANDING. "SVU" is the best spinoff, the storylines are as complicated as they get and the acting, particularly by children, is AMAZING. Plus, bonus credit for casting Ice-T (the kid with the song "Cop Killa") playing a cop.

Speaking of "Law & Order" I caught a "Ripped From the Headlines" episode yesterday. I saw the beggining, and it's the "Rap Awards" or something or other. Someone goes to meet another person upstairs and he starts yelling out his name. The dude coming upstairs gets no response. I was like..."Oh no, I see where this is-" and before I could finish my thought, they show a dead body on the floor. I was like "shit! they didn't really..."

For people who haven't caught on, the guy on the floor dead was supposed to be Jam Master Jay (RIP). No one calls him that, but the black dude takes the white guy on a refresher course of the dead guy's career (btw the dead guy's name is RC). I thought it was funny how the black investigator turned into "Stereotypical Black Person A" when rap is brought up...

Black Guy: "Yo, this be the man of them ol skool cats on the wheelz of steel, knahmean? He was all about parties and all that other crazy dope shit, feel me dawg?"
His partner: "Huh?"
BG: "Erhm, I mean, this African-American fellow seems to be the type which sung the rap music."

I thought that re-making JMJ's death into a TV show was kind of tasteless. I mean, it's like making a show about John Lennon dying. They went all graphic, showing him lying there with blood on his chest. Kinda tasteless. The fact that there were so many similiraties to the JMJ death made the guilty person really easy to spot. The show isn't going to say it was the bodyguard or the wife or the protege, otherwise they're kinda suggesting thats what happened in real life. They raised a few points about rap music, for example, the fact that streep rep = sales and that a lot of rappers will make up stories about how "hard" they are in order to increase it. Case in point, ODB (RIP), sadly. The story gets a little more suprising towards the end, but that's it. It ends with the blonde woman gettin fired, and she goes "Is it because I'm a lesbian?"


There was a lesbian all the time on the show and no one told me? Did she just make that up? The guy says "no" but still fires her. Thinking about it, if you were a woman about to be fired, make sure to tell your male boss that you're a lesbian. He'll probably keep you and go looking for another and install security cameras everywhere. That is, if you're not fat. No one likes fat lesbians.

Seriously, one of the girls said that they were embarassed that Bush was from Texas, and no one bought their album. People's heads would explode if they ever heard a Public Enemy record, or a Dead Prez album, or a Paris album. Look at this PE cover art:

Or worse, this Paris cover:

Anyways, speaking of Dead Prez:
Bonus Audio
Dead Prez - It's Bigger Than Hip-Hop

"I rap ’bout what I know, what I go through
What I been through, not just for no dough
Even though the rent due, what I’m into, ain’t for no dough
Or just no fame, everything must change, nothin remains the same
Sick of the same ol’ thang, it’s bigger than bling bling"

From Dead Prez's revolutionary album "Let's Get Free".
Other Dead Prez albums are "RBG", "Turn Off The Radio Mixtape" and "Turn Off The Radio Mixtape Vol 2: Get Free Or Die Tryin'"

"Fuck wavin' flags bring these dragons to they knees
Oil blood money makes these killers ride cold
Suspicious suicides people dyin' never told
It's all a part of playin' God so ya think we need 'em
While 'Bin Ashcroft' take away ya rights to freedom
Bear witness to the sickness of these dictators
Hope you understand the time brother cause it's major"

Tests coming up tomorrow.

yeah, english and science. i didnt EVER read ANY of "night" by elie wiesel. the time i was supposed to be reading the book i got sick and missed school for almost 3 weeks, around the same time the Jenny Saga went on. so now, ill be reading the "plot overview" and whatnot on sparknotes.

Currently listening to the man Buckwild's remixes, right now to the "4 My Peeps Remix"

Jay-Z was legendary...

before he made songs about cleaning yourself as a dance. Jay is still better than a lot of people, for example when he says "Like a running back, get it man? I'm straight off the block". But in 1996, he was legendary. Songs like "D'Evils" really showed more than just rapping about cars and chains (which granted, he can do pretty well). He really was at his best with the "street hustler" tales...sample from "D'Evils" (note: produced by DJ Premier, a guy who everything he touches turns gold):

{Scratched chorus:}
[Snoop Dogg] Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Prodigy] Illuminati want my mind, soul, and my body

[Snoop] Dear God, I wonder can you save me?

[Prodigy] Secret society, tryin to keep they on me

[Snoop] Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Prodigy] Illuminati want my mind, soul, and my body
[Snoop] Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Snoop] I can't die

{Verse 1}
Uh, yeah
This sh*t is wicked on these mean streets
None of my friends speak
We're all trying to win, but then again
Maybe it's for the best though, 'cause when they're seeing too much
You know they're trying to get you touched
Whoever said illegal was the easy way out couldn't understand the
And the workings of the underworld, granted
Nine to five is how to survive, I ain't trying to survive
I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot
Life ills, poison my body
I used to say 'f*ck mic skills,' and never prayed to God, I prayed to
That's right it's wicked, that's life I live it
Ain't asking for forgiveness for my sins, endz
I break bread with the late heads, picking their brains for angles on
all the evils that the game'll do
It gets dangerous, money and power is changing us
And now we're lethal, infected with D'Evils...


Yeah, yeah,
We used to fight for building blocks
Now we fight for blocks with buildings that make a killing
The closest of friends when we first started
But grew apart as the money grew, and soon grew black-hearted
Thinking back when we first learned to use rubbers
He never learned so in turn I'm kidnapping his baby's mother
My hand around her collar, feeding her cheese
She said the taste of dollars was sh*tty so I fed her fifties
About his whereabouts I wasn't convinced
So I kept feeding her money 'til her shit started to make sense
Who could ever forsee, we used to stay up all night at slumber parties
now I'm trying to rock this bitch to sleep
All the years we were real close
Now I see his fears through her tears, know she's wishing we were still
Don't cry, it is the beat,
In time, I'll take away your miseries and make 'em mine, D'Evils...


Uh, uh, yeah
My flesh, no n*gga could test
My soul is possessed by D'Evils in the form of diamonds and lexuses
The exorcist, got me doing skits like Homie
You don't know me, but the whole world owe me
Was thought to be a pleasant guy all my f*cking life
So now I'm down for whatever, ain't nothing nice
Throughout my junior high years it was all friendly
But now this higher learning got the Remy in me
Liquors invaded my kidneys
Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me
I can't be held accountable, D'Evils beating me down, boo
Got me running with guys, making G's, telling lies that sound true
Come test me, I never cower
For the love of money, son, I'm giving lead showers
Stop screaming, you know the demon said it's best to die
And even if Jehovah witness, bet he'll never testify, D'Evils...

[Snoop] Dear God, I wonder can you save me?
[Snoop] I can't die
