It's more than a beat with heavy base, and rhymes that cause inevitable head bopping. Or large Xs that cover your chest that do more than captivate a fashionably inclined individual's attention. I again, thank Complex magazine for yet ANOTHER incredible collaborative issue for October/November.
Yeah, say it, GR GR GR GR GRINDING! As soon as you hear this song you bang your fist on the nearest desk to imitate one of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo's many rhythmic creations.
From what used to be Union in New York City to Common Wealth in the nation's only Common Wealth, pardon the pun; you can find yourself drapped in Xs, sporting the new oxymoronic trend, Original Fake.
Peep this new collaboration on stands soon! && Pardon me, I must say, this is kinda like a big deal. So uhm, lights, camera, & oh yeah, action!
i'll continue to keep you abreast of such things that are indeed, ironically peculiar, and super DOPE.

so. he's signed to Kanye's record label. Nominated for awards without even releasing an album. & now, he's on the cover of COMPLEX magazine. And this is not just ANY cover, this is an animated, personally drawn cover trying to capture a "nightmarish approach". pretty damn cool if you ask me. KidCuDi seems like one of those, about his business, but still wants to have fun and let the fans have fun as well. you guys will definitely enjoy this, like I have.
complex aug/sept 2009 issue. look out for it ! hitting a magazine stand near you, august 11th.
he's the man. !

This summer has been filled with Chuck Taylor Converses. Why ? Probably because they're cool, stylish, & affordable. Not to mention the array of styles & colors that they come in. Stepping away from the canvas scene, Converse has decided to release a sneaker made from fleece material. These heather gray fleece converses are available at sneakersnuff.com
peek peek ! feedback is greatly appreciated.
take a looksy. 2009 Fall/Winter
peep this though. yikessss =\
"the white man". Many of us have learned this, time and time again in History classes.
So, learning this in History class would imply that these occurrences have already happened. I am slightly mind boggled as to WHY history is repeating itself. Were there not individuals that risked their lives to break this cycle ? Ooh, alright. Just checking.
But clearly, there is no excuse as to why this black man was brutally beaten, simply because he was driving in South Side Chicago with his white fiance in the car.
But !! I have returned. I know you all have been yearning for new posts, and here I am to give you guys what you've been waiting for.

poke her face. sky might fall, but i'm not worried at aLL.
going back to honolulu, just to get that, that maui wowie.
you've guessed right. CuDi the KID himself.
before admiring his style of rap, and his ability to capture various musical genres in one song, i honestly thought that this guy was just one of those one hit, and forgets. day n' night played all over the place. from bet. to mtv. to ringtones. and it rang my ears off, totally. none the less, i downloaded his mixtape. to say i fell in love, would be an understatement.
native of ohio. singer/rapper. moved to NY and slept on couches and floors for three years. signed to GOOD music.
the only word i can use to describe this deft young man is; modest. patient. & less is MORE.
take notes && enJOY !

beyonce. the star studded. songstress gone actress.
could we have asked for a better collaboration ? i think not !
now, time for me to do what it is, that i do best ! if you haven't noticed, the latter of beyonce's released videos are all within the black and white color scheme, with the glare of white lighting; except for halo, which is in color, but has the white lighting. my appreciation for this video goes without being said. you have similes and metaphors that are to die for. alto and soprano notes. precise choreography & shiny costumes. then again, what do you expect ? this is BEYONCE & KANYE. duh. pardon my ignorance. and peep the significant zoom at 0:18 seconds. don't be a fiend ! chao !

well, enough about yezzy. ye's protege, big sean is definitely an undeniable talent. check out his performance at DEFJAM's twenty fifth anniversary.
yeah. i know you love him; almost as much as i do.
can you say GOOD music ?
peep his other tunes; supa dupa, getcha some, dreams. trust there's more, but see for yourself ! sheeesh brutha. =)
when we think of diddy, we think of; getting off on other people's tracks, take that, take that, & ciroc OBAMA.
put them together, and we have, "Must Be Love"
notice the ambiance of the low lighting, and sometimes sepia lighting.
rather intense if you ask me !

Disappointment has struck on the female youngins as it has for myself. Rumors have been cleared ! Actually, it's not even a rumor. Bow Wow is throwing in the rap towel, and has asked to be released from Columbia Records after releasing S E V E N albums. In my opinion, he latest release, New Jack City Part II, which came out in March was his best album ! With features from Trey Songz, to Ron Browz, it was pretty good stuff.
He just released a new video, not for the kids of course ! I mean c'mon, he's 22, a GROWN MAN. "Pole in my Basement" and he has definitely earned the respect of many guys in the streets. -- indeed.
take a peek ! he's a boss too. a boss, hands down !
L. B. DUB. Gang !
"Spaceship" Featuring GLC and Consequence ! Only bosses can do such things, and be successful with it ! take a peek. this is G O O D music !
3:25 is the money shot ! no, really.
"we're young, having fun, and enjoying life.." true.

Me, I'm a Creator. Thrill is to make it up. The rules I break got me a
place. Up on the radar. Me, I'm a Taker. Know what the stakes are .
Can't roll it back, it's understood. Got to play our cards.
so at 5am, i'm bored; i reek boredom, i display boredom, it is written on my forehead with R E D lipstick, for imagery's sake. decided to photograph my work because i just may make this a new hobby, no really. i would greatly appreciate feedback though. if you like, i could even bless you with some creativity!
