Don’t know how long this will be live..
Yelawolf kinda rips this. Danny Brown a given.
Cam’ron professes his help in saving us from skirt wearing spitttas.
ASAP Rocky shows up to a taping of 106 & Park in a lovely dress.
Spoiler Alert: NYE 2013 @ Good Life. Tranny FoxxJazell will be performing his smash hit Ride Or Die Boy. Ride the wave, kids.
Juicy J and El-P on the same track…just shoveling dirt on Faraone’s dream of seeing the Northeast build a huge electrified fence to keep out rappers from other regions in order to develop the “master race” of emcees that all sound like Cannibal Ox or Bekay and celebrate every anniversary of Occupy from now until the apocalypse. In fact, they’d probably try to occupy that too.
This is the shit me and Jeremy sip “lean” (any drink served in a styrofoam cup) to on these Boston streetz with young girls poppin molly.
From the Fool’s Gold compilation album Loosies out 12/18
Sorry Boston…NY is winning right now.
The Top 5 tracks coming out the rotten apple after the jump
More button mashing than a game of Marvel vs. Capcom. And way more expensive.
The price may be a little steep to watch a guy zone out on his MPC–you could probably go to any dorm in Boston and see the same, much shittier version for free. But to his credit, Araab makes a show out of it. I saw him in Montreal last year (with the admittedly much awesomer Lunice in tow) and it was a good mix of coked-up talent, French-Canadian hipster-bros, and nerds circled around his drum machine like it was the opening of the Lost Ark. We’ll see how Cambridge can compare, but I don’t know if they are ready to get it in Ohio for real.
Speaking of which, in the twisted world we live in now, this guy can book shows for $20 but Cam is busy sonning himself in low budget “Cousin Bang” videos. As JKREALIZE would Tweet, “SMH.”

Marty tweeted about Big Boi’s album earlier. I wanted to see if it leaked, Googled it, and came across a few album cuts.
This dropped in November, so you A$AP stans are probably up on this already (or “awwwwready” if you a southern slang speaking Harlemite).
I feel like I’m listening to JKFGT’s stream of consciousness.
This song literally has all the elements that make up his life.. (except for deep seeded depression, constant whispers of a dark secret that he is to ashamed to reveal to anyone, and jewish guilt).
Bet you didn’t know Boston had some shit like thisssss. The yung homies, OG Swaggerdick aka the #SUSGod and Michael Christmas aka #BobHanukkah, recently teamed up for the most #rare Boston collaboration to date. Young enough to be Faraone’s grandchildren, these kids are sweeping the city as leaders of Boston’s First Based Chapter. Look out for that newnew, especially Mickey Christmas’s EP, Fxck an EP, out at the end of the year. #OMG
The whole Odd Future phenomenon took off about two years ago with the release of an Earl Sweatshirt video. Back then, seeing a bunch of kids skateboarding and doing drugs in a low-budget home made video seemed raw and edgy, and this group of talented artists (Tyler, Frank Ocean, Earl) and fly-by-night coattail riders (the rest of ’em, pretty much) really seemed like they didn’t give a fuck.
Fast forward a couple national tours and dozens of high-minded think pieces in the media later, and the most controversial thing about OFWGKTA is the color schemes on their line of branded socks. Doesn’t matter how many whippits or kick flips you do, you’re not scaring any suburban soccer moms wearing this shit.
But this new video is a good sign, if for Earl alone more than the group. Washed out in shadowy B&W, “Chum” is all slow Spike Lee dolly shots and brooding lyrics about family strife and similes about Vince Carter’s knee cartilage over a murky piano beat. This looks like the single from a new project, but they key with Odd Future seems to be just enjoying this while it doesn’t suck.
If there is one thing this world needed, it was a Juicy J video game.
This got me thinking.. can you imagine a Sage Francis video game?
It would just be him running from Slaine outside of the Paradise.
Or maybe grilling some veggie burgers with Chris Faraone at an Occupy rally.
The final stage he realizes that B Dolan is actually his own reflection and he has to smash through a thousand mirrors in a fun house to find an exit.
Cot damn shame…waste of a good yt girl over today’s awful hip-hop state of mind.
I wish there was a Scared Straight rap reality show where this broad had to spend a weekend in a recording booth with Rah Digga.
Kids these days….
