Diplo x Gucci Mane= DipMane?



Thanks to the homie Wes Flexner over on Donewaiting and the folks on Pitchfork, I am now aware that Diplo will be remixing some tracks from Gucci Manes Cold War mixtape series. Now I thought I was all Gucci Maned out but I finally got back on my mixtape grind and discovered a few dope tracks. Below is my X-Mas wish list that I would like Mr. Diplo to remix, tho some of the tracks are not from the Cold War mixtape series...fuck wit me Mr. DipGucci!?











Madvillainy









Most of us have heard the album before, but these are a few cuts I been diggin as of recent thanks to the Boondocks. Does anyone elses taste in music change with the season, Cunesta Negro im pretty sure u said something like this before.

Wu-Tang Clan: 3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day


For this installment of "3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day", I was stumped. How do you get the classics of the Clan down in 3 choices. It's been hard enough with the other posts, and I dont even feel like I did those posts justice considering it is quite redic to get a genre or sub-genre down in three songs. But for this one I am really having a hard time.The Wu completely changed the game. I mean 9 of the illet MC's on the planet in one group!? How do you choose 3 classics when for a time everything these guys did was nothing short of brilliant. From the debut album to the first string of solo releases they did everything right. So do I go with possee cuts, or do I go with their individual classics? So with this problem presenting itself to me( and what a problem it is) I decided to go with(in my opinion) the illest possee joints. These tracks may or may not feature the entire clan, but they get the point across. So with that shitty set up out of the way,lets get groovin!

Female Appreciation





So I finally jumped on the bandwagon, I know im late. So lets just forget that and make Rihanna The Official Pluto Gang Female Of The Year, the first pic above should be enough to earn her points. We already talked about how that RnB nigga Chris Brown fumbled on the goal line in the universe bowl and I now side w/the millions of people that feel this nigga needs a beat down for what he did to this fine female above. But babygirl did bounce back, and she bounced back strong that's why im gonna officially say again RiRi is The Official Pluto Gang Female Of The Year!

D'Angelo - Devil's Pie

Whatyaknoboutit?

Sister Nancy- Bam Bam

Been stuck in my head since Sweatin' at Skylab which was fucking dope, you might have heard this song in the movie Belly.

West Coast Rap- 3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day



I know I know, I been missed a day or two. But I think this post will really keep you warm in these dreary winter days. So fuck off if you're bitching about this post comming late. For this installment of "3 Classics For Your Day" I decided to give the left coast some love. West Coast Hip-Hop is the second most important style of rap music to ever come out. The West Coast is so much more than 2Pac Dr. Dre and Snoop. The West has given so many contributions to Hip-Hop that it is impossible to count and for this post very impossible to dwindle down to three choices. So for the genre of Hip-Hop that dominated the early to mid 90's I have made my choices based on: National and international appeal( I'm givin a shout to cali really, so fuck the radio), not relying on the East Coast template(meaning this is only a sound you can identify with California), and to be quite honest...My own personal favorites.

The West Coast genre of Hip-Hop was something very special to all heads in the sense that it gave us something not the norm. Hip-Hop being dominated by the East Coast almost made it impossible to be takin serious by someone NOT from NYC, and made it possible for cats from all over the country and world to make their voices heard without a Dj Premiere beat. Case in point being the explosion of Southern Rap, which quickly came to the top of the game after the West Coast had it's run.So with that shitty set up out of the way,lets give love to the coast that
made being a pimp cool, the coast that toldus "Fuck Da Police", the coast that let us know what the fuck a Blood or a Crip was, the coast that gave many of us in 95... A hero! Lets get this thing started!

For the Women and the Bitches: 3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day

For this installment of "3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day" I'm givin a shout out to the Bitches and the Ladies. Contrary to some popular Hip-Hop lyrics, bitches and women are not the same thing.

I dont feel like giving an explanation or on this subject because if I have to then your fakin' the funk. All yall bitches, women, sluts, queens, bust downs, mothers, child support seekers, ho's, ladies, gold diggers, and down ass bitches... Know who you are. This is for yall.

First I'd like to have Jeru explain to yall what I'm really gettin at, Then Pac is gonna give respect to the Mammas, and we'll close it off with a track for all yall ho's!

Because they bad...and no one likes a hypocrite.

3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day: Jazz-Rap

So the first installment of "3 Classics For Your Day" had no theme really except that all of the tracks came out in the 80's and they were all from debut albums. So this time around I decided to give this trifecta of dope a theme...Jazz. Yeah I know I said that I wouldn't be really listening to Jazz this Winter season, but I can't deny the huge influence that it had on Hip-Hop. As a matter of fact my earliest memories of Hip-Hop come from a time when Jazz-Rap was the Alpha and Omega in the game. I didn't know who John Coltrane was when I was 7 years old, but I knew who Digable Planets was.
There is so much out there to choose from in this specific genre of Hip-Hop so if you have a favorite that aint on the list(and I'm sure you do)let me know. And with that shitty set up out of the way lets get groovin!

3 Hip-Hop Classics For Your Day


I'm a very seasonal music listener, and when the Winter season starts to rear it's ugly head I tend to listen to more Hip-Hop/Rap music then anything else in my iPod. Now I know alot of you are asking "Rap music? isnt that more of a summer type thing?". And my reply is "Fuck no...What? Should I be listening to Shoegaze, maybe Jazz perhaps? Naw... Fuck that son! I need to keep my head bobbin to stay away from the cold(Metal also works very well for this)!". So I am going to be dropping 3 Hip-Hop classics each day(that is if I get online) to bob your head and keep warm while out in those cold and dreary streets gang.
We'll start this off with a hallmark track from the Boggie Down Bronx, then give The Native Tounge Crew some love, and to finish it off take it to 88' when Hip-Hop was breakin heads and I was breakin gums.

Leave Tiger Alone.....

Throw out the old saying of "I am Tiger Woods", the media is destroying this man. With the recent news of Tiger getting into a "mysterious" car accident outside of his Florida home. Also the many women coming forward claiming they had an extramarital affair w/Tiger this guy is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Honestly I'm tired of hearing about this man. Growing up as a Tiger fan and being able to see him play at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, OH, I felt like I knew the guy. Now the media is trying to paint a picture of this man as a good guy on the outside and scum bag on the inside. The dudes over at The Smoking Section put it best, the man was just hungry for some lovin. When your rich and Cablinasian like Tiger you can get any women you want, and I think Tiger realized that too late in life. Now you cant say that his image as a "black face" to the media didn't have an effect on how they viewed him and portrayed the story. That's what annoys me the most about the situation and the fact that they wont leave the man alone. The only thing good to come out of this situation is this gem posted below....please leave my former idol alone.




No Tiger noooooooooooo.....

So, Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize today after only a year and a half as president. Damn, he's good. And just after sending 30,000 more troops to war?
No, seriously...
This dude means business. He does in one year what would take any mortal a lifetime to achieve.
Congrats, score one for the home team!

Monday


Today is Monday, and December is coming up. Japan is going to be colored by pseudo-Christmas, a fake, imitation, just an decorative kind, of Christmas. I should say, Japan is very laid back on religion, rather not take it seriously compared to Americans. Examples are Anime and Manga themes, ideas and story lines derive from old legends, myths, Judeo-Christian history, and etc. to compose an work. I heard Neon-Genesis Evangelin became a heated debate that the Japanese are pressuring Christian beliefs. To tell the truth, no, and no one over here cares. No matter what Religious background you are the society will not treat it as ''truth'' but more as a fantasy like figure and will not be too conservative on topics like other nations around the Globe (i.e. Pokemon is not allowed in Islamic society due to their belief that they do not believe in evolution).
Anyways, I will end gibberish here and continue on. By tomorrow I will upload random pictures so please check it out my friends.

Monday is always slow and laid back. Nothing happens but time just passes by eagerly. I really need to start thinking about my future plans which I do not have. I am in my junior year, have to get ready to graduate and also find a place to work (straight out of college grads. go find a perminate place to work during school than to do so when your 25 or 26).

By the way, every time I am in front of a screen, there is always somebody watching my screen. Why is this? Anyways I cannot type up what I want. So... yea, Cheers

Augor MSK

My new favorite writer, at first I didnt dig his piece styles but they grew on me, his style reminds me where Crep TPG RIP gets his west coast influence from, shits fresh.

Rilla FBSK PBJ

Found this video on youtube, dood has been painting for less than 2 years but has came up quick.

A Very Ginger Summer

Some skater dudes we know put together a couple of videos, check the homies out...

Beer and gals


I dranks three cans of premium beer (an expansive one than the ordinary kind) one day (about like what, 4-5days ago I should say?) and drank another can the next day. I didnt have enough, but to get more it costs money which I didnt have. This sux, I thought but who cares. The world still spins and revolves even if I dont have anything to drink.
So where did I leave off last time?
On the 21st and 22nd of Nov., KSUA had a school festival. I cannot upload photo of the event because it includes pictures of people so instead I will upload other pictures. During the festival, I was a member of a Mochi stall (crushed and smashed rice) making refreshments for shoppers. What you do is first boil some rice until it is soft, and then smash them in a rice mortar until it becomes somehwat of a puddle. Then, with two people you smash and turn the puddle until it is dense but not too hard and soft enough to eat before it becomes too cold. It is tiring because the rice itself is hot and heavy, while the tool used to smash the puddle is heavy also.
The best part of the festival is, people you know are dressed in costumes and it is funny to see them. I enjoyed myself seeing hotties dressed up in a outfit that turns people on.
It was great two day entertainment and I wish next year will be even better!
Ordinary school days follows after the festival. To not make school life boring, I ganged up with couple of Freshmen, Senior, and Juniors to plan an event to decorate the school with an art work Cuz' its an art school, why not? Art students do not have much chance and place to present their works and we thought that was an weird thing, and also students do not have any chances to present their work in campus, outside of class. No personal exhibition and personal work is not encouraged. So what the hell? This is still in a planning stage and the school is sooooo much of a wuss and have a such a passive attitude on education, this group may suffer making they're goals a reality. We are still negociating with the school to let us use the vacant campus space and allow nobody to use the space for other deeds. Students try to use the space for something else but usually the school dismiss them and let somebody outside of campus use the space.
What a boring school. Its like a fools gold.

The Night Of BroSU






It happens once a year in a Midwest town known as Columbus, Oh to the world, or Buckeyeville U.S.A to the locals. On a usually warm fall Saturday the years old Ohio State vs. Michigan rivalry is in full effect. Filled with scarlet and grey, maize and gold, booze and weed, young and old, drunk and sober, finus and mungus, the buckeye freaks come out at night. I would know for sure, I woke up to these fans playing beer pong and taking vodka shots in my living room at 11am, and I almost felt I needed to join them. On that note it is about that time that I observe these beings, but only as a reporter for the TiPsetGang, wish me luck. DrinkDrankDrunk....

Joe Jackson - One More Time

Another site I spend time on when I should be doing my job. Inspire me, now! displays a variety of pieces and styles that keep me entertained when my office job cant. I believe a few local artist from my neighborhood have had work posted on here, check it out for yourself.

Wiz Khalifa- Burn After Rolling













This has been in the CD player of the chevy since friday and I burnt it on thursday. Wiz Khalifa has become one of my favorite rappers of recent in less than a week, which is impressive. Some have compared him to Cudi (Wiz>Cudi) and I can understand that. The Pittsburgh native has a dope sound and is a double threat singing and using auto-tune on certain tracks. Please click pic for link and be on the look out for more on this dood his second album Deal or No Deal drops on November 24th.

I Know You Dudes....





I think we have ran into these dudes multiple times in the streets....maybe at a local house show!

Tonight The Clampdown At....


My favorite bar plus good tunes and faces I wanna see equals a good time, be there and you can have fun time with me!

Dungeon Family







I remember my dad giving me this CD when I was either a Junior or Senior in high school. I knew who the Dungeon Family was but at the time I was transitioning from my Pink Floyd phase to my stint as Nirvanas biggest fan. Around the time I was living at the 4th street mansion I rediscovered the CD during a pregame session with CunePluto that involved Fifa on N64 and 40oz King Cobras. It quickly became the theme music behind the forming of the black squad click (Cune, M.Davis, and I) and to this day one of my top 10 favorite hip hop Cd's.

Female Appreciation




I would have a crush on the female lead from a film based on race relations (see post below on Jungle Fever), but Annabella Sciorra is fine and I had to show my respect.
