That slave one…

The slave picture reminds me of some Talisb Kweli lyrics, 

"These cats drink champagne and toast to death and pain
Like slaves on a ship talking about who got the flyest chain”

Kanye West - New Slave - An Excerpt

They throwing hate at me
Want me to stay at ease
Fuck you and your corporation
Y’all niggas can’t control me
I know that we the new slaves
I know that we the new slaves
I’m ‘bout to wild the fuck out
I’m going Bobby Boucher
I know that pussy ain’t free
You niggas pussy, ain’t me
Y’all throwing contracts at me
You know that niggas can’t read
Throw ‘em some Maybach keys
Fuck it, c’est la vie
I know that we the new slaves
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with me
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye
I’ll move my family out the country
So you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash their recorders
See they’ll confuse us with some bullshit
Like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock niggas up
They tryna make new state
See that’s that privately owned prison
Get your piece today
They prolly all in the Hamptons
Braggin’ ‘bout what they made
Fuck you and your Hampton house
I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
Y’all ‘bout to turn shit up
I’m ‘bout to tear shit down
I’m ‘bout to air shit out
Now what the fuck they gon’ say now?

YOU CRAZY FOR THIS ONE RICK

His beard is a tax-exempt republic.

My goal in life is to have realized my creativity to a level of success at which I can go about this world looking like an absolute train-hopping hobo.

Rick Rubin’s been a legend for decades but for some reason I think his popularity is about to explode due to his cameo in Jay-Z’s 3-minute album advertisement where Rubin is just chillin out on the couch in multiple scenes. Dude doesn’t care.

I don’t plug too many other people on my own tumblr/twitter but my very talented friend, Armen Soudjian (ACRS), is finally getting some breaks in the business. He comes from a talented family (His sister is La Cocha from Perez Hilton and his brother is the award winning filmmaker, Ara Soudjian).

Anyway. my boy just finished putting this video together for Dizzy Wright’s Verbalizing. Check it out.

Macklemore ft. Ryan Lewis - Thriftshop

Damn, that’s a cold ass honkey.

This was amazing.

Damn, I love Jurassic 5

If you wanna fight tha powa,
get tha powa to fight.
‘Cause some of us judge
without knowin’ a man’s inner.

This song you posted reminded me of a story so I shared the story. http://sugashane.tumblr.com/post/36772949349/talib-kweli-and-the-best-hip-hop-show-i-ever-went-to

Talib Kweli And The Best Hip-Hop Show I Ever Went To

Best Hip-Hop show I ever went to was about 7 or 8 years ago, it was supposed to be a Talib Kweli show in a random warehouse in Hollywood. 

My and my 3 friends were big fans and had see nearly every show he played in SoCal. Talib is notorious for putting on a hell of a show that always ended up becoming an impromptu house party. He always brought on special guests and would drift off from playing his own music to having his DJ, Chaps, throw on other classics, like the Jackson 5, James Brown, etc. 

This particular night was insane because it was, at the time, the biggest venue Kweli had played in in LA but the place was only big enough for, at best, 1,000 people. but Talib pulled out all the big guns, Mos Def showed up as well as Chali 2na. And, like always, Krondon and some of the Strong Arm Steady boys came out and did a few songs.

Now, it’s like 11 pm, Kweli was supposed to end his set at 10pm, and this is where shit got insane. Talib got on the mic, put the music on pause and said he had one more special guest for the night. As the crowed waited in anticipation Kweli yells out, “Lil Jon, everyone!”

The crowed was perplexed Lil Jon? That’s not the type of music this crowd listens to. And then it happened, we all heard the famous yelling on the speakers, “YEAAAAAAAAAH! WHHHHAAAAAAAT! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” 

Dave Chappelle comes out in his Lil Jon outfit accompanied by Donnell Rawlings (Ashy Larry) doing the robot. The place exploded into a near-riot. Kweli, 2na, everyone got into an awesome dance grove, they invited girls onto the stage and the party popped off. You have to understand that this was like 2005 or 2006. It was the height of The Chappelle Show. This was the most famous man in the Urban social circle and there we was, in fake dreds, 5 feet from us, doing the robot to some James Brown. There’s only one word that comes to mind to describe this night; Legendary. 

To me, those few years around the height of The Chappelle show also correspond to the height of true Hip Hop. The Roots, Mos Def, Talib, Common, classic Kanye, Ghostface, Meth, all of these guys were pumping out once classic after another classic. Not just great tracks but legendary albums. I miss those days and I miss that music.

Killer Mike - Reagan (Official Video)

I can dig it. 

"Jay, listen, I know you have street cred and all, but there’s no way you’ve killed more people than me… and Eminem murdered you on your own shit."
