Moe Pope + Rain (or is it Nate Mardsen from Bearstronaut) – Lift Off [Video]

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Nate Mardsen appears to be rapping here. He’s starring in the video… But Moe Pope and Rain also make an appearance. Is this a Nate Mardsen song? Is this a Moe Pope and Rain video? Is this a collabo? The YouTube video says Moe Pope + Rain… Did Rain do the beat? Why is the sky blue? Why is water wet…?

Whatever. My head hurts. All I know is this video is fucking really dope. The song is really dope.

Congrats to everyone involved for making some dope shit.

How’s that for journalism?


DJ ON&ON’S Mother Weighs In On JTTS.com’s 4th Annual BMA Loss.

Monday, December 9th, 2013

We are like the Susan Lucci of the Boston Music Awards. It’s all good.

I woke up and was really feeling the self doubt about my blogging ability.

I mean, we all know Vanyaland was going to win. Michael Marotta was all over the place last night. He was fucking DJing the event, he booked a hotel room there, he was nominated in at least one other category, he actually puts in hourly work in the Boston music scene, and lest we forget to mention the fact that he’s probably slept with half the nominating committee, judges, and 90% of the nominees.

Whatever, we love the kid. Hell I fucking voted for Vanyaland over JTTS.

Anyway – I was feeling really #sadboyz status until I received the following email, forwarded to me by DJ ON&ON from his Mom. Words of encouragement (??).

I’ll repost this email after the jump and respond line by line…

Do You Believe This Rumor About Mike Napoli and South Street Diner That Is Blowing Up My FB Feed?

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

So what if Mike Napoli was singing “Straight Outta Compton” and not censoring himself? It’s the lyrics to the song. I am not offended by it. I guess maybe because I am not black and I would find it hilarious to hear Mike Napoli doing this…

Quick off the cuff thoughts I’ll more than likely get hated on for: If N.W.A. didn’t want white people to enjoy their music word for word than that makes THEM the racists? Right? Wrong?

Should he be singing the lyrics in public if people are offended by it? Probably not… but should he be allowed to do whatever he wants because he’s Mike Napoli and a World Series Champ and we’re not?  I think so…

Let me hear it please:

Faraone’s New Book “I Killed Breitbart” Is Now Available. Buy It Bitches!

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Former JTTS blogger Chris Faraone is now on his third book since leaving this blog and abandoning his aspirations of writing about hip hop in lieu of covering politics with a far left leaning skew.

In order to make this completely about me (which it should given the evidence) – please reference this poast where I gave Faraone the idea for his Breitbart book:  LINK

Also please reference this poast where I give him the idea to cover Occupy and basically changed his life forever: LINK

Basically, if you support this book – you’re supporting me – so please buy Chris Faraone’s new book. Description available below:

Mr. Lif x Boston Strong [Video Fail]

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Let me preface my feedback by saying Lif is a great mc/person who has accomplished more than a majority of Boston area mc’s ever have. My interactions with him have always been peace, and you won’t find anyone with a respectable understanding of Hip-Hop calling him wack.

With that said, this Boston Wrong Strong track/video is a fail.

1.) Leave Boston anthems to dudes that approach you at Downtown Crossing wearing sunglasses pushing their latest mixtape with “Bean” in the title.

2.) Reducing the strength and history of Boston to clips of Boston sports teams is cliché as fuck. Not to mention, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett rep Brooklyn now. It’s like proclaiming how you fuck the dopest chicks, then proceed to show clips of all your ex-girlfriends.

3.) Not a single clip of the hood is shown…just yt’s cheering on their hometown team at a sporting event that costs $75+ for a decent seat.

4.) No mention of Adidas. Blasphemy.

5.) Brighton is shouted out. (See #4)

6.) Hip Hop/Jazz dancers backing you up is not Boston Strong.

7.) The beat is suspect as fuck.

8.) I don’t know that I need to round this list off to 10 reasons why this doesn’t work. I regretfully deem this joint as a fail.

Agree? Disagree? Get at me.
