Now this has been up for a week (give or take a few days) but I’m still gassed. I will go to this! Malcolm style if need be (you know… by any means). I mean Graduation is built for performance, and Lupe’s shows are supposed to be great. I could do without Rihanna but I’m sure her shows are entertaining cuz lawrd know she can’t saing. BUT this being said I want to see N*E*R*D. Period. With the N3RD release rumored this year, and their last 2 joints takin over my life, I AM EXCITED to say the least. Now the real question is who’s joining me?
Cuddle Bums by 88-keys ft Tanya Morgan is a lil ditty bout hittin it and then shakin the spot when the girl wants to lay up, I’m sure we can all relate to this some way. My favorite verse is the first, Donwill’s, with lines like “we cut buddies and cuddlin confusing what doin’…get the dick and let me leave” you know he’s all business. Also cold lines like, ”my bed’s mad comfortable and spacious as I make it, you can hog your own blankets”. I know this song has been out for a minute and I saw Von Pea’s sig on okp but oh well the shit is tight. Not to mention the genius sample of the blues/country sainga Bonnie Raitt.
As for Love Thirst By Jean Grae, it’s a re-mixed (better mix) version of a song from Jeanius. So maybe he new cd may be the new/old Jeanius or that’s just a leak of a better version of the song. Anywho it’s awesome. My favorite line is “I’m in love thirst baby you’re the quencher/maybe we should be taping so you can remember”. Jean gets down! 9th wonder really kills the beat
I must learn y’all bout the beautiful female MC, Ms Jean Grae. Not only is she sexy, but will tear your favorite rapper to shreds. Her rhymes are venomous and flow is unmatched. If you haven’t somehow obtained the unreleased leak of Jeanius, you need to cop/acquire it (maybe I’ll up it later). The tracklist(s) I found are almost the same so the only thing I don’t know for sure is the exact names of the songs but shit is great. 9th wonder handled the production and did so very well. Her new joint on Kweli’s Blacksmith imprint is “supposedly” gonna drop, but I won’t believe it til it’s in my hands. Now this release will be entitled “Jeanius”, as well. I hope its not the same one. Not that its not dope, but I want new shit.

***sidenote: I’ve come across a couple of pics of her lookin rough. BUT! I’ll stick with what I said bout her beauty.
No this isn’t about the fruit who yelled that shit. It’s about perhaps the dopest song ever!! “Paul Revere” by everyone’s favorite hiphop jews(idk if they are but lookup the last names and tell me they don’t at least fit the part), The Beastie Boys. The beat is ridiculous, if that shit came out today(which it did by way of that make ur ears bleed song “so krispy”) it’d get mad spins. It’s nuts! And in the ever classic spirit of storytelling, the song tells of the fictional meeting of the trio. With lyrics that would give today’s “top” rap artists the sour/gas face, becuz by comparions today’s artist are nothin more than gimmick dancers and “party/club” songs. As I digress, basically this song is top 10 all-time and I always gets me hype. Have a safe day and don’t forget to always superman your hoe and jock on a hater.
Beastie Boys – Paul Revere
the hardest working band in the industry (at least hiphop cuz I’m not up on bands like that). And ?uestlove IS the hardest working man in the whole industry. Do these guys ever sleep? Maybe, but i doubt it. They just wrapped up some shows in Japan, where i believe they said they previewed a bunch of new shit. FUCK THAT!! I saw them live(TWICE!!!) and no new ish, now their show is the dopest, but i want new shit!. Anyway, i wonder what exactly did they do and what it sounds like. The “Please Don’t Go” demo version has been around for a minute, and i love it. And word is they have been doin the song in their set too. IDK but I’m just ready for Rising Down.
Martin Luther’s rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep”. GREAT!
