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!?
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.

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!

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!

I don't want to get nasty, but some people feel that attacking others is the best way to promote donations...whatever. Just thought I'd put the word out so all this bitching and moaning can stop. Thanks.

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.
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.

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 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.
