Writer's block. Give me a second...

I'd love to pretend like I'm not writing this post with a smile on my face. Its been far too LONG since I've posted and writing again feels amazing. But fuck all this mushy small talk. Let's just hurry up and do this and enjoy it while it lasts. Like firing up a jay on the porch before your mom gets home from work. Don't worry... someone reading this knows exactly what I'm talking about.

So I'm currently living a day-to-day life where internet access is limited. (Hopefully, I'll get a chance to go more in depth about that in a later post.) Not for any real reason other than the fact that I can't bear to spend my hard earned money on an expensive ass internet plan; not yet at least. Mind you, this is not the reason for my half-year absence, nor is this post as a whole a contract written in blood that I'm back to regularly scheduled programming. Unfortunately, none of the above. However, while surfing the free internet in my local library, I found inspiration. And that shit felt good.

Coming soon. 4/20/2010 to be exact. Enough said.

dizzy's a fool.

New Wale "Chillin" video.

Please look at this bamma Dizzy at 2:29.

oldie but goodie.

Kanye just posted the video for "Spaceship" from his first album College Dropout on his blog and wrote "I DIRECTED THIS VIDEO FOUR YEARS AGO BUT I WASN'T SATISFIED WITH IT SO I NEVER RELEASED IT. BUT NOW LOOKING BACK AT IT I LIKE IT."
I kinda like it, too.

kanye - paranoid

The real version...

we didn't shake on it, so....

Around this time last year I made a bet with my friend Destiny that Wale's debut album would come out within the next year. She was convinced that it wouldn't, and I was offended. Needless to say, a year has passed and I'm still here twiddling my thumbs, patiently waiting. Even though I lost the (unofficial) bet, I'm still really proud of the progression that he's made in the past 12 months and I honestly to consider it an L. Perfection takes time and I really hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment by saying that. Everything in due time. We'd hate for him to rush the release of his album just because like some artists do *cough*AsherRoth*cough*.

His first single "Chillin" with Lady Gaga hit the radio about a month ago and the video is due out soon.

70,000 fo' that ass!

Still reading KTH, eh? I don't get it. Even though I only show my face once in a blue moon like taxi cabs in North Philadelphia, you still continue to check on me. I'm not going to pretend like I understand why you do it... but thank you. Sincerely.
Lets make it another 70,000, shall we?
Have a good day everyone!

yeezy videos.

I love the songs. The videos are poop.

The Dream Feat. Kanye West - Walking On The Moon

Kanye West - Paranoid

UPDATE: I just read on Kanye's blog that the uber-boring version of "Paranoid" above is not the one he intended for the world to see. Apparently, after this one was made he was satisfied with the turnout (no s**t) and filmed another, more cinematic version. Good thing. There's nothing interesting about a fully dressed Rihanna. Wait... no. That was wrong. I apologize.

this is a band...

I'm well aware of the fact that by now, more than half of my readers (if I still have readers) have downloaded this mixtape and are already over it. Due to the long, unexpected hiatus that however, I never posted it with a couple of my thoughts on the project...

This is by far the best altogether mixtape I've heard in a while. The concept is so in depth that it even dictates the order of the tracks. Every single song is incredible in my opinion except for maybe two that I could have done without. The skits are hilarious and actually make sense, as opposed to some mixtapes/albums where the skits just seem random and unnecessary. Even the front and back covers are relevant. I've been playing this for a month straight. If you haven't, I advise you to "get familiar."

I mean, it is safe for work but if anyone walks by it'd be foolish of you to not expect them to ask "What the f**k are you watching?" It's hypnotizing, nonetheless. Kinda like softcore porn only not as frustrating.

"Hit me! Hit me!"

Okay, so there are two things that I learned from this video clip:
  1. Not all poetry is spoken.
  2. Charles Hamilton is incapable of multitasking.

well alright then.

I mean... I really don't even know what I'm supposed to say. Rumor has it that this is how female cricket players in Panama get down.

Mm hh!
(pronounced "mmm hmmm")

but you already knew that...

I'm currently listening to the Cool Kids "Gone Fishing" mixtape in its entirety and I must say that its pretty good. I've been cool with the Cool Kids since I first heard them but I was completely convinced when I saw them perform at the Rock The Bells concert last summer. I remember it vividly: Donovan and I were on the lawn chiefin and drink beer that we snuck in, when out of nowhere we hear the crowd by the small stage go crazy. We decided to walk over to see what all the hoopla was about and the Cool Kids were on stage KILLING s**t. I've been a fan ever since.

So far this mixtape is pretty damn good so I highly suggest downloading it. I'm quite pleased.
