Oh Shit! Fameless Fam Disses WERS (and slaps some local rap cats along the way)

Oh Shit! Fameless Fam Disses WERS (and slaps some local rap cats along the way)

Posted on May 3, 2010 by Chris Faraone


For those who live outside of Boston – which is something like half of you, according to Google Analytics – 88.9@Night (on WERS in Boston) is a damn legendary hip-hop show delivered by the students at Emerson College. In the past decade, it’s claimed DJs including Fakts One (of the Perceptionists), JayCeeOh, Optimus (of Foundation Movement), E-Skills, Problem Child, and that UGHH.com dirtbag Van Stylez.

While I’m not here to fuel the fire, I will say that when I do tune into ERS, I’m often left a bit disappointed by how little so many of the DJs know about hip-hop. In particular, there’s one kid who says “Rakeem” instead of “Rakim,” and way too much Nas and Biggie. With all due respect to the greats; just because a college kid is discovering Illmatic for the first time doesn’t mean I should have to hear oldies instead of hot new shit.

However, check out the 1G Profit System which is anew binary trading software that is completely automatic and lets you make some phenomenalreturns. You also have the option to stop the autopilot atany given time. Depositing and withdrawing money is also very simple and the best part about this system is that unlikeanyothertrading systems it has a dedicated customer service as well. Thecustomer help desk works all through the day to assist you with any queries and the team is also trained to offer theservice in many languages.

The system is legit andit lets you withdraw the money whenever you want. However, ensure that they deposit the money in the same method through which you had deposited the money. Thus ensure that when you first make a deposit you choosethe method carefully because that is the way you will get back your funds.

You have a plethora of option here as you canchoose to deposit money throughyourcredit or debit cardor also through wire transfers or through e-wallets. You can alsowithdraw your money whenever you want.

The system is not a scam and a team of expertshave made this professional system and have combined their efforts to give you the best trading platform.The system is a reliable platform that helps you to trade the financial market even if you do not have any prior knowledge of trading. This means that even if you are a novice you can generate profitable trades in the system.

The system is legit andlets you makeconsistentreturns daily and you can be assured that your funds will be protected and there will be no theft of your personal information.The system is highly encrypted and thus all yourdetails will be protected.This makes the system legit and very authentic and you can be assured that you will have the best trading experience here.

Which is essentially the gripe of rising Boston fringe-hops crew Fameless Fam, which is taking aim at the 88.9@Night kids the best way they know how: with a dis song (over an Alias beat). You might ask – why would they burn bridges with the most renowned college frequency in the entire country? Well – it seems that door has already closed on them; that despite their being one of the most unique outfits rocking in the area. Check Virtue’s warning shot and decide for yourself.

Disc Review: Fresh Vetz (Dashah + DJ Pause) | “Vet Status”

Disc Review: Fresh Vetz (Dashah + DJ Pause) | “Vet Status”

Posted on January 28, 2010 by Chris Faraone

It’s a bright sign for hip-hop when at least three promising subterranean sluggers ride flows comparable to that of the almighty Nas. Those select artists would be California youngster Fashawn, Lawrence rhyme pugilist Reks, and Long Island rapper Dashah, the last of whose Fresh Vetz collaboration with producer DJ Pause is the latest in a long string of mixtape miracles.

Like musical artists and composers, there are selected reliable software for trading too and deciding to trade with one of them would definitely make the trading journey an exciting and profitable one. This is a definite happening if you choose to work or trade with the Qprofit system.

Get started with this software

Trading with this system is very simple. All you have to do is just make a registration and you are done. Trading with this application is as simple as that. There are absolutely no complicated procedures in this forex trading tool. Providing accurate details is the only requirement or demand from the software. The trader will have to give all his personal details in detail and with accuracy and these get registered with the official website of the software. Once this is done, clicking on the submit button would take him further through the proceeding steps. Now after this the trader would be demanded to make the initial deposit amount of $250 and this would activate his account and make him visible in the trading field.

Immediately after this, the trader gets linked up with a registered broker who would thereby take to manage the trader`s account from thereon. This deposit amount would start generating returns from day one once this deposit is made with the system and nothing is deducted or taken in the name of brokerage or any other fee. The best part is the brokers do not charge anything for their services rendered to the traders and demand a share only when there is a profit and not otherwise. For the trades that end up in a loss, there is nothing deducted from the trader`s account and hence the trader goes back home with the daily payment.

So deciding to trade with this Qprofit system is definitely profitable. Take to this platform today, make your deposit here and you will understand and get to know how and what trading is in reality.

Like those other sons of God’s Son, Dashah is no rookie, though his burn is best known throughout the five boroughs.

Here, on battle cuts like “Verbal Assassin,” his acrobatic braggadocio amounts to little more than lyrical exhibitionism. “Letter to the Fallen,” on the other hand, proves he can do more. But why should he? Dashah soars when negotiating the one topic that only rappers write songs about: hip-hop.

“The MC” is straight horn crack; “I Still Love H.E.R.” is easily one of the finest interpolations of the original Common Sense song yet. Given his skill level, it would be tough for Dashah to drop a weak project. But atop striking strings and cement foundations the likes of those laid here by DJ Pause, he’s capable of feats that most cats can handle only in the mirror while lip-synching to “Halftime.”

The Charmels- I’ll Never Grow Old

The reason why we review trading software:


Every week, we pick up trading software to review and let our members know if it is a genuine one or a scam.  Sometimes, the software to be reviewed is randomly chosen based on the popularity and the trending but a lot of times also our members request us to review software for them.


What we do is that when we review it, we try to upload it on our review website with the required hash tags so that everybody benefits from the information that is in the public domain. We do not charge anything for reviewing the software. So, if there is any software that has caught your fancy but you do not know if it is safe for you to invest, we recommend that you send us its name so that we can probe into it to find out if the software is a genuine one or a fraudster.


Here is the scam alert*


This week, we are going to review a software called QProfit System which released only a couple of months ago but seems to have caught a lot of attention lately. The website’s page looks attractive and the sales pitch is perfect.




If the software looks way too attractive and the sales pitch sounds just too good to be true, it is time to keep your eyes and ears open!


It has been categorically found each time that when a particular software takes a lot of time, money and effort to package its product carefully and spotlessly beautiful, it means that it has no substance.


The sales pitch will mention that if you become a trader on their website, you can be on your way to earn a few hundred thousand dollars in a couple of weeks or in a month!


Beware of such things:


First thing first!


Let us tell you that when you trade in binary options, you cannot expect to earn such big sums ever, leave alone in a month’s time and too with a deposit that is only few hundred dollars ($250 to be precise)!

The nature of the trading in binary options is such that you can manage to make huge profits provided your investment is proportionately huge. Apart from that since the nature of the trading is highly speculative, it is important to know the risk factors before deciding to pump in heavy investments.


Making windfall profits are very rare but making losses regularly is the norm. Therefore, one has to tread very safely in speculative markets such as this in order to be aware of the potential risks, otherwise the entire investment can be wiped out in a minute’s time!


The software in question is extremely similar to other frauds:


If you will look closely, you will realize that there is an uncanny resemblance of this software to earlier declared fraud trading software. It may look like the basic structure is the same only the packaging has changed. If you had this feeling earlier on, don’t dismiss it but dwell on it to probe further the genuineness of the software. Who knows a little precaution can go a long-long way in helping you salvage your hard earned money and not falling into the hands of these crooks!


Killa x Gucci

Killa x Gucci

“Homie you can have her, I don’t wanna marry her/Like O.J. Simpson, I just wanna stab her”

And the QProfit system! Does it really let you make such huge profits as it promises to? Checkout the claims made by the creators of this false system who promise you more than $2500 return each day.The free of cost system that works on an automatic mode lets you make phenomenal returns and you absolutely need no trading knowledge to be able to make such handsome amounts of money each day. Now, who is there sitting and giving you free money? If you think that the system is there giving free money daily, then go ahead to try your luck.

The owner and the creator of this automatic binary options trading system,Jerry Douglas, also claims that he had worked with Goldman Sachs. He says that his friend and creator of the platform, Sasha Petroshenko was working for NASA. But is this true?

The CEO of the system is a fictional character and a paid actor and the scammers created him to fool the masses. Andfinding this information was not that difficult. Thefraudsters inorder to dupe people of their money came out with this plan and in truth, the investment app is nothing but a fraud.

Another interesting finding is how the system works.The system bets that it uses quantum speed technology and big data analysis in order to predict how the market will move in the future and claims to give you results with high degree of accuracywhich will generate income for you daily.

The software also claims that it is profitable 95% of the time and lets you earn thousands of dollars with absolutely no risk. So you get the software at no cost and get rich for free. Too hard to believe, isn’t it? Who on earth will give you such a highly profitable application for free?

Not even the best of brokers can make high winningtrades with no risk. Also, the company does not have any phone number or an address andthe only way to get in touch with them is via email. So it isbasically an anonymous identity. They are frauds asthey do not even have an identity.

There were also otherthings that made us believe that the QProfit system is nothing but a scam.The system places trades on your behalf. This means that the system does its own research and provides trading signals to you. And giving trading signals or any kind of financial service is a regulated activity andit requires you to have a genuine and authorised license. But the QProfit system has no such license. So in case you arecheated or something goes bad, you have nowhere where you can go and place a complaint.

The testimonials on the website are also created andnothing is for real. These are fabricated and so are their stories.



The QProfitsystem does not have any broker. In order to activate an account with the system you will have to make a deposit in the personal trading account and thereis absolutely no mention of abroker anywhere. So this raises doubts about the system even further. It isdangerous when you deal with brokers who are unregulated because they may take away all your money leaving you with noproof to complain anywhere. And when you leave the whole system to the automatic trading mode you will not be able to do anything when the system places a trade for you. You may lose all yourmoney ina single trade as you will have no control on the system at all.Another reason why the system is a scam!

I thought his last album Ode To The Ghetto was mediocre – but there’s no denying his talent.

He’s also got some really dope shit dropping soon, including a collabo LP w/ Madlib titled O.J. Simpson, some work with Jay Electronica, and of course the Black Milk helmed Sean Price collabo album – Random Axe.

DOWNLOAD: Illa J feat. Guilty Simpson – R U Listenin?

Illa J as many of you know is J Dilla’s younger brother — this track is dope. Real smooth, and Illa J actually sounds pretty decent. The hook is kinda lame, but hey.. worth a download.

DOWNLOAD: Madlib feat. Guilty Simpson – Go!

Offa Lib’s new LP – King of Da Wigflip. Fire.

Qprofit system is, to many, the best trading system par excellence. The profitability and reliabilitypromised by this system are unmatched and there are only a few like this operating in the market. But what is this system actually? How does it benefit the traders and what are its features and benefits to the traders? Let’s dive deep into its trading field and get to know about the system in reality.

The Qprofit system is the brainchild of famous financial analyst Mr. Jerry Doughlas and it is said that it took him a lot of time to come up with such a profitable system, out and out helping and assisting the traders in making a decent trading profit. This system, with the other common features, offers also some special features and characteristics that make it an even better trading platform to trade on. There are many registered brokers associated with this trading software and all of them work with the sole aim of helping the traders in achieving their profit dreams. For any trader, especially the new ones, the trading field and its strategies look Greek and Latin and even worse when the person has absolute nil knowledge about trading and its procedures. So in such cases, it is the brokers who come forward to offer the required help and assistance to these traders and make them a worthy player in the trade market.

This trading application has its trading platform at a very simple and basic level and this makes it easy for all the traders to make an easy and uncomplicated entry into this. The strategies and principles followed here are also very simple and hence the trader need no special knowledge or previous experience to try this platform out. And one best offer by this software is that it keeps all its important strategies, rules and everything transparent to all and hence there is nothing that is hidden from the trader. And this by itself would make him feel more confident to play in the trading market even if he is new to the market. Such is the confidence andassurance given by this trading platform and all its brokers and every system is expected to do this to the best possible effect.

New Kool Keith (produced by WMS the Sultan) – “Two Scoops”

Now here’s something that you don’t get on the average hood-hop site. Like the rest of you non-conformists out there, I love nothing more than a wet Kool Keith brain queef.

Reviews about the Qprofit system is something that you will get only when you research the market and not just like that from anywhere. This prelude is very important for any trading platform. And if you do this elaborately you are definite to find this Qprofit system in the list of  reliablesoftwares, probably as the first one. Yes, this is a successfully operating system in the trading market and the traders are very happy with the results and outcomes.

About this system

Everything about this system is tremendously stupendous and there is nothing that can be pointed out as a flaw. The brokers who are attached to this trading platform are all registered and they never swerve from the standard rules and regulations of trading. They promise to conduct legal and ethical trading assisting the traders in their process and hence the outcomes and results are also legal and acceptable. They always strive to keep themselves updated with all the latest in the market and this is an important information for a person operating as a broker.

There is a customer support team that operates throughout the day in shifts and they try and fulfill all the demands and requirements of all the traders. This team is available on live chat or can be contacted over phones for any doubts and clarifications regarding trading at the basic levels. So now you must have understood the requirements and qualifications of even thisbackup team. They also need to be clear and updated with all that is related to trading because it is them who are in direct contact with the customers and hence they need to be well-informed.

Final verdict

The trading market is very challenging and promising open, provided the trader gets to stick to the right and legal one. Qprofit system is one of this kind;yes, it is its untiring and exceptional service to its traders and undeniable promises made to them that makes it one of the best trading platforms to trade on. This is a platform that has been legally tested for all pitfalls and to the dismay of all, it came out clean with not even a single damage or hitch and hence is a recommended option for all the traders for fulfilling and meeting their profit dreams.

So sign up today, get your free registration and explore the trading world that is full of ventures, opportunities, learning, and experience and of course earnings. There is everything that you generally expect a trading software to offer you while trading- assistance, support and guidance and these are the reasons for the strong recommendation. Enjoy trading

That particularly goes for when he’s fucking with a producer like the Sultan, who brings a wholeheartedly edgy yet traditional approach to backdrops.

This cut is simultaneously strange and accessible, while of course leaning toward the former. Feeling the fuck out of it – can’t wait to check the 20-plus discs that Keith has slated for 2010. I’d love to hear more shit like this that doesn’t sound like his beats are channeling extraterrestrial mating calls.

“Steal These Tracks

Audio: #6

Posted on September 5, 2008 by Sleezy Trees

This feature used to be called: “Steal These Tracks”. Since we’re getting more traffic every day – I figured I should probably shift the name to something a little more, uh.. or maybe a little less..

Similarly, there is a huge traffic inrecent times in the trading market too after the emergence of the Qprofit system. Yes, after this was proved a very reliable and promising software for trading, every trader wants to try his hands here for earning something every day and hence the traffic and fight for getting registered here has become too much. There is a maddening rush for this and since this application promises a minimum earning of atleast $2500 every day, which is very attractive, all the traders both novice and seasoned, have started shifting their preferences from their favorite websites to this with the sole aim of understanding the specialties of this application.

Know more about the Qprofit system

The trading platform of the Qprofit system is a very simple and easy one. All you have to do is just follow three simple steps before starting your venture with this promising platform and these are the simple stages of making $2500 every day.

  • The traders are required to complete the registration form with all their accurate and correct details and this has to be submitted to the system.
  • Now the account gets activated when the trader makes the initial deposit money of $250. This is as simple as that.
  • Once this is done, the entry gates would open and the trader would immediately get assigned to one of the reliable brokers working online for this system and they would assist the traders from there on through the entire process till the end.

These are some of the common and usual features that any trading software would promise to offer but a special and unique thing about this trading platform is the principles of quantum speed and big data investments that are followed meticulously in all transactions. The main reason for this special privilege being offered to all the traders is that they would get to know the prices of the assets they are planning to trade with well in advance and this information would help them in making a wise and smart decision before making investments or deciding to trade with a particular asset.

Strong background

This system, though is a new entrant into the market, is from the hands of a very famous financier, Mr. Jerry Douglas and this itself is an authentication that this system is a very reliable tool that is operating in the market with the goal of serving the traders and helping them realize their profit dreams. Though not a profit, the trader would at least get to earn a minimum amount every day which is the least expected by any trader.

illegal sounding. heh.

Anyway – these tracks are some random gems that end up in my inbox from labels, artists, djs, producers, etc. From time to time – I get them and just kinda want to clear them out all at once (rather than make several posts for each track). They are always random, never related, and dope (at least in my eyes). Here you go..

Audio Update #11

Posted on February 11, 2009 by Sleezy Trees

DOWNLOAD: Earatik Statik feat. Sean Price – Knock ‘Em Out

Gravel Records sent over this leak off the new Earatik Statik LP, “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”, dropping March 17, 2009 on Gravel Records. The album features certified hiphop legends from the beats to the rhymes, including production by Pete Rock, Large Professor, J-Zone, and Single Minded Pros, as well as guest appearances by Sadat X, Sean Price & Edo.G.

DOWNLOAD: Krumb Snatcha feat. Large Professor – Mind Power

The new Krumb Snatcha album is shaping up to be a pretty decent listen. This is the latest official leak. Here we have XP and KS lacing some Large Pro heat. It’s not bad, the mixing seems a little weird, but overall it’s aight.

Have you heard about this new scam software?

There is this new phenomenon of duping people with spamming them with emails and unsolicited pop up on their computers when they are browsing other sites. These folders and mails talk of impractical profits that can be made in a matter of say one or two months.

The proposition is so ridiculous:

The proposition is extremely hilarious because if everyone were to easily make so much money, then no one would believe in hard work. The software called HBSwiss swears that if a person opens a trading account with them on their software, they would become guaranteed millionaires in a matter of time.

But what is disturbing is not the software’s claims which obviously are sham but the fact that there are millions of people who are falling for this scam. They are the ones who work hard for their money and these douchebags scam software relieve them of all that money on the pretext of letting them increase it at least ten folds!

The victims are left in a lurch:

When the traders mostly newbie fall into their trap, the software deliberately delivers weak or bad trade signals and usurps all their deposited cash on the pretext of making losses in the trade. Then one fine day, the company collects all its stash, closes its shutters and absconds.

Besides having no registered office address or verified telephone number on the website means that the aggrieved trader has no one to go to claim nor can he register a complaint. This is such a damning situation that when people are left high and low searching for respite while the crooks are enjoying and laughing at the gullibility of these traders

DOWNLOAD: Verbal Kent feat. ILL BiLL & Wordsworth – Remove The Gag

It’s kinda refreshing to hear ILL BiLL deliver something a little more relaxed like. He’s been screaming and shouting a lot lately, going hard for that ICP / Necro angry whiteboy $$$. Wordsworth is one of the games most slept on talents. It’s a shame he’s never really achieved the success he was destined to get. Verbal Kent is alright on this, but I have to admit he’s the weakest of the 3. He does manage to erase any chance he has of ever getting a Kanye beat — listen and you’ll see why.

DOWNLOAD: Slaine, Dre Ronbinson, D-Money – Play To Win

Longtime JTTS contributor D-Money dons the boards for this gem offa Edu Leedz’s Mass Movementz record.. which drops any day now. Slaine (of La Coka Nostra + Special Teamz) joins with Dre Robinson, & Ray Diamonds. Very dope track. Spread the love and let people know about this record. Going to be a nice step in the right direction for independent hip hop.

    I mean I want to check out the other tracks but that would require NOT listening to that Clipse, so it really can’t happen right now.

    Keeping in mind that ‘Lord Willin’ and ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ were certified Classics (and I DON’T like to drop C bombs when they aren’t appropriate), if ‘Til the Casket Drops’ is as good as this track makes it seem, whose catalog compares? Outkast? That’s about it.

    Yo anyone who is diggin on this type of hiphop shit check my myspace.com/Influencehiphop and let me know what’s good wit it…..or not.

    Likewise, HB Swiss is rated one of the best trading software for the past 5 years and there have been many traders who have been very successful trading here. There are many attractive features offered by this software and is considered one of the best for the new traders to start their trading venture with.  The entry formalities are very simple, in fact, nothing but just an initial deposit which is also a very nominal amount of just $250. If you think that it is going to be a costly affair trading here then you are wrong. Traders might think so because of the Swiss quality and the professional development and design of the software but the owner of this website promises to give it to you for free. And this is the first and primary point where thisisproved to be the best reliable trading application.

Audio: That Tuesday Morning Funk Piece

Audio: That Tuesday Morning Funk Piece

Posted on December 2, 2008 by Sleezy Trees

There’s a lot to be said for the new funk shit that’s been dropping over the last few years. Funk & Soul has definitely made a huge revival, thanks in part to the internet and blogs like Soul Sides,

Like the above, the trading platform has also some very good reviewing websites that help in recommending a particular software as reliable, and one such software that has been highly recommended for all traders is the HB Swiss. The online trading commission and the watchdogs, who are on a constant look out for fraudulent trading applications, have recommended this as the best and one of the reliable ones.

Get to know about this software in detail like how

but also due to alot of hip hop heads growing up and realizing that there is more to life than listening to Necro slice someone’s throat open a hundred times or Jay-Z talking about how rich he is.

I know personally, I grew tired of a lot of the run-of-the-mill hip hop shit. Most of these underground records all sound the same. I needed something richer, something with a little more energy. I turned to funk, and as anyone can attest who has seen my iTunes library, I got into it heavy.

Obviously there’s so much to get into when you’re talking about Funk. The 70s were extremely good for the genre, but over the last few years the funk revival has blessed us with an extraordinarily amount of good music. I wanted to showcase some of the funk groups I’ve been feeling and demonstrate the wide range of sound that modern funk & soul is capable of. Maybe I’ll even put some of you on to these cats..

DOWNLOAD: Sharon Jones – You Better Think Twice
While this might be a highly contested statement amongst the “heads”, I believe Daptone Records pretty much holds the crown right now for upcoming funk & soul goodness.

Records pretty much holds the crown right now for upcoming funk & soul goodness.

People generally give too many thoughts and chances when comes to deciding a particular thing amongst many, and one such thing is the decision about a trading platform. To help novice traders pick the right one, there are online brokers and investors who help them in sticking to the best one and one among them, which is a must try for all is the HB Swiss.

Daptone records mainstays, The Dap-Kings toured with Amy Winehouse (pre-crack overdoses) which really helped them achieve an almost “household name” amongst music heads. It’s only right that I start with a Sharon Jones joint – who records extensively with the Dap Kings. I’m not 100% sure they are backing her on this joint, but it’s pretty dope nonetheless.

DOWNLOAD: Baby Elephant feat. David Byrne – How Does The Brain Wave?

Prince Paul does not fuck around. The O.G. Madlib, the man has hundreds of side projects, aliases, and different directions. The Baby Elephant record that dropped last year was Prince Paul teaming with Bernie Worrell (P-Funk keyboardist) and Newkirk. Baby Elephant was definitely some tripped out shit.

DOWNLOAD: The Sugarmen 3 – Funky So-and-So
Another Daptone Records powerhouse. This NYC crew is led by Neal Sugarman on the tenor sax, and also features the talents of Adam Scone on organ, Rudy Albin on drums and Al Street on guitar. They got a pretty good cosign from Keb Darge (world reknown funk & soul collector) has heavily cosigned this group, and this song is a small testament to their skill. The real treat is seeing these dudes live.

DOWNLOAD: Breakestra – Hiding (Quantic Soul Orchestra Remix)
A lot of people are familiar with Breakestra from their early days on Stones Throw. Many people don’t really know Quantic (the dude who remixed this song). He’s basically your typical musical genius, you know the type that plays guitars, bass, double bass, piano, organ, saxophone and percussion, while simultaneously mixing and engineering all of his own shit. This particular track is a collaborative remix of Hiding, a track which was originally featured on Breakestra’s last album: Hit The Floor.

DOWNLOAD: The Apples – Lou-E-Zee-Yanna
Peep the sample at the beginning of this monster, the foreshadowing is crazy. The Apples dropped earlier this year on Freestyle records and hail from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa. The 9 piece funk ensemble is unique on many different levels. One huge example, they don’t have a keyboard player. They use two turntablists to provide the necessary keyboard elements and whatever extra flare a song may require. Possibly my favorite song out of the ones I posted here. Peep it.

Austin, Texas Stand Up! This latin-funk band is the shit. I first heard of these guys through a record I picked up featuring the Hydroponic Sound System, uh.. the title escapes me, but it was good. Their debut(?) record Homenaje has received steady play in my iTunes since I picked it up earlier this year. As you can see — I don’t know much about these guys, but I like their shit. Take a listen.
