Today is the 11th annual DIPSET Day. Celebrating the release of the classic Diplomatic Immunity (3/25/03). How will you celebrate?
Another Dilla Day is upon us. But really every day is a Dilla day. Rest in beats, god.
This video is a gem. Pure fucking gold! And for all you idiot younging, “twerking” ain’t nothin new. You fuck heads are on our old shit. Twerk sumthin! (c) Massa P
Two years ago The xx dropped this on xxmas (ha!). It’s since become one of the songs I’ve listened to most. It was surely in my top5 on iTunes (when I still had my laptop). I can’t quite pinpoint it, but I just LOVE this song. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
Part of that golden 4th qtr of releases in 2001, Stillmatic, dropped 12 years ago today. I thought it was earlier in the month but *shrugsies*. This heat was phenominal. I used to like it more than illmatic (I was 7 when ill dropped, 14 with Still, context guys). But if you still think ether is better than takeover then you’re just an idiot.
Because Jay was born today and Pimp died today. Beginnings & endings are everyday. Possibilities are endless. Open your eyes
Read this piece on The Fader bout STEEZ. It’s incredible. Eye opening. We’ll never have the answers we want but it certainly provides more closure to some and answers a few questions. RIP STEEZ
now were a month short from the one year anniversary of his passing but this is still important.
Now I dug STEEZ verses on Joey shit. But I just left it at that. Until SHE told me to check his tape. AmeriKKKan Korruption. And WOW. after that Joey didn’t even exist to me anymore. Cuz in Pro Era I knew STEEZ was THAT dude. I was disappointed when I got Reloaded cuz I had thought it was ALL new songs. But at least we got 7. And when the group tape dropped his verse on Like Water was magical. I IMMEDIATELY cut STEEZ verse into a ringtone (one I still have). Then a couple days later on I’m graveyard and I see the tweets. “The End” then I see Joey’s tweeters. And that’s it. No REAL answers about anything until that article. STEEZ, you are missed.
