It might not even be good, but it's still RAP
Something for everyone, but not everything for someone
Filling the cracks in the sidewalk of online rap

B-B-Bueller.... B-B-Bueller... ...... B-Bueller..... B-Beatles?

Diplo - Shhake It Up (The Beatles Twist and Shout B-More edit)

Say Whut - Ferris Bueller Theme (B-More edit)

Two more classics, down for the count. Hasn't the Baltimore club music trend run its course already? It's all the same drums! Is everybody listening to the same shit I am? Though that Ferris Bueller thing is kinda dope. Bow wow.

Dropkick Murphys-INJUSTICE?

Dropkick Murphys - I'm Shipping Up to Boston

Ya'll should check out the Departed, if you haven't, even though it's just a rehashed movie made by Chinese people. However, Scorsese works out some of the ails and kinks that invariably come with being a Hong Kong film. The ending is better, for one.

Danger Danger High Voltage!

The Good, The Bad and The Queen - Herculean
The Good, The Bad and The Queen feat. Eslam Jawaad - Mr. Whippy

Danger Mouse plus Blur minus instrumentalists plus Clash bassist plus Fela Kuti drummer equals.... a break in our life from decent yet overhyped records by a DJ named after a certain cartoon character rodent with an eyepatch!

The Mouse brings his modest and subtle touches to each track, making "Herculean" cinematic and "Mr. Whippy" quaint and delicate, complete with Arabic rapping/talking.

Not yet boarded up...

Bored Stiff - Spirit of Lee

Bored Stiff - In the House

In the mid-90s, the Bay Area underground rap scene was run by a few syndicate-like groups. There were others here and there, sure, but the largest names were the Living Legends, Hieroglyphics and Bored Stiff. The Legends, which are composed of various rappers from up and down the California coast, have gone onto individual careers of varying success and still periodically reunite for group albums. Hieroglyphics were arguably the most famous of the groups, but their shimmer quickly faded after the home runs of "93 Til Infinity," "No Need For Alarm," "Fear Itself" and a stand up triple in "3rd Eye Vision."

But the last group, whatever happened to Bored Stiff? They were the most street of the backpacking superstars and had head bobbing, West Coast production style. One of the members, Equipto, went on to a reasonable solo career, many times pairing with fan favorite Andre Nickatina. But largely, we haven't heard from them much for about a decade.

Bored Stiff is back, though, with three new songs, and a pending album is set to drop in 2007. From the sounds of these two tracks I've provided, it sounds like they haven't abandoned their signature sound, for better or worse. In a post-hyphy, post-backpack world, can Bored Stiff hold up where few have persevered? MURS and Del are the light at the end of the tunnel.

Bored Stiff MySpace With one more song.

Get (B-More) Housed!

P Diddy - Get Off

B-More, know that Puffy's on your side, trying to squeeze out that winning season into a playoff bid. God, this almost makes B-More house ironically listenable. Stop the ride, I want to, uh, Get Off.

Wu-Tang Temporarily...

El Michels Affair feat. Raekwon - PJs remix
Plastic Little feat. Ghostface - Crambodia

Better than Wu-Tang Never... right? I saw Raek, Deck, GZA and Mr. Golden Arms U-God himself on Saturday night, backed by El Michels Affair, a 12 piece funk band (so they claim... i counted about 7 members on stage). Like always, they took forever to get on stage, albeit they were just anchoring the production competition that took place earlier that evening. The backpacks were in full effect, as the super rap nerds came to see the "select" members of Wu while on the other side of town, Trae and Clipse apparently set up shop and attracted, let's just say, the "CMJ Demographic." I heard it was good, though. But so was the Wu show. They tore it down with the live band. Anyway, this El Michels Affair shit is pure cut dope (Chef, get it?), and one of the nicest things I've heard in a minute.

How much money is Ghost making off making appearances on trendy Spank Rock-ish albums? Speaking of "CMJ Demographic".... I thought he was still gangsta, adding back the "Killah" to his name, but I have my doubts now. I wonder how much he knows the Canada/Falcon/fish posturing worked in some ironic-pseudo ignorant hip way (a la Dipset, but he can rap). Like the audio-version of BAPE here. Man. I'm not too mad at this track though. OK, I am. But anger makes me forget that I'm deeply insecure. Rawr.

Kfed and Britbrit are DUNZO!

When the blogosphere (or as I like to call it, the Internet) gets hit with news as big as this, there is only one thing they need more than anything else: Clever headlines!

Luckily I am armed to the teeth with genius ideas. So I am selling the following:

Baby No More Time
Oops!...He Did It Again ("It" being separated from a mother of his child)
Oops!...She Did It Again ("It" being separated from someone she was married to)
(He Drove Her) Crazy
Britney gets K-Fed Up
K-Fed gets Speared out the House
Kevin makes Bee-erline to the door
Spears files for divorce
Kevin and Britney split!

The following names are tracks from K-Fed's recent album and also work as headlines for the separation:

A League of My Own
Crazy (feat. Britney Spears)... I suggest Crazy (formerly feat. Britney Spears)
America's Most Hated
Caught Up
The World is Mine... I suggest "The World is Hers"
Playing With Fire... I suggest "Playing With Myself From Now On"

please e-mail me for rates. I also have headlines for Brad and Angelina, should they ever wed ("Mr. and Mrs. Pitt," that's just a taste!).

Posting from work... part deux

Clipse - At Your Door

Clipse - New World

Lil Jon feat. Three 6 Mafia - Act a Fool Crunk Rock? I thought that was some lame ass way of reinventing crunk so people didn't forget it. But those are the exact words I would use to describe it after hearing this. And that Lil Scrappy song.

Flava Flav - Hidden Track feat. Smooth B
MP3 Blog Roulette here.

DJ Unk, Andre 3000, Jim Jones - Walk it Out Sounds like Chicken Noodle Soup at first. Eh. I hope Andre 3000 is making that money.

I'm totally not listening to any of this crap. My Chemical Romance, baby. I'm so lame.
