Sleezy Trees Upgrade To Any Chris Faraone Blog Poast

Monday, April 26th, 2010

.    

Does Faraone’s beard and brand of humor leave you unsatisfied?

Do the words he writes come together in your brain like vinegar and baking soda?

Does it make your blood seethe with emotional rage that he turns down more hot bitches in a week than most of us score in year..?

Did you know that Faraone once stated that Jurassic 5′s “Feedback” was album of the year in 2005.. ?

well.. if you’re like me.. reading a Chris Faraone post about hip hop is akin to shaving your eyeball with a salty razor..

I look for ways to improve them constantly.. and quell my rage.

here is one method..

click play on the video above, maximize it to full screen, and stare at it until it tells you to look away.

Then look at a Chris Faraone post.

I assure you, it will be much more enjoyable.

This Is How Dumb Consumers Are…

You’re looking at the display in my local bodega for a ridiculous hood liquor called Nuvo. It wasn’t selling well before, but once they put the bottles behind a glass case that requires a store manager to open with a key, they can’t keep it on the shelves. Sounds ridiculous – I know – but it’s true. Nuvo riche indeed.

I’m not saying this stuff is necessarily bad, though I’m sure it is since it’s fucking pink. But I really can’t get over the fact that people would be attracted to a bottle because it’s locked up in a ridiculous bourgeois aisle-side fortress. And if heads are just copping because the ad has a pic of Fabolous holding a bottle – then they’re especially stupid.

This hip-hop shit really embarrasses me sometimes…

These joints are made of real wood (like actual speakers), plus they don’t come in that stupid impossible-to-open packaging

Disc Review: Truthlive (with Jake One) | “Patience”

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

OTR042310_truthlive_main

Consider Patience a penance for Seattle-based producer Jake One, who recently laced the soundscape for Philly coke-rapper Freeway’s remarkable Stimulus Package. For every young gun whom Free corrupts, quasi-conscious Los Angeles rhymer Truthlive grabs a cat and passes knowledge that pertains to something beyond running the block.

Truthlive is more than just a competent MC — he’s righteous without sounding corny (“That Dude),” and at times even romantic without falling into L.L. Cool J booby traps (“Poetry in Motion”). Obsessive lyric junkies won’t be overwhelmed — for all that this disc plays through exceptionally well, it has very few rewind moments.

Light mainstream fans of Common and company, on the other hand, will certainly oblige. As for Jake Uno’s contribution: though Patience is full of giant romps and catchy riffs (as always), consummate rap fiends will notice a few too many familiar samples. (Boston heads will recognize “It’s Easy” from Special Teamz’ “Fallen Angels,” which Jake also produced.) Still, if you can move past his recycling, tremendous bangers like “The Bush Years” lie ahead.
