Music of the Moment - November 30, 2009

I was pretty late copping Weezer's latest album Raditude, mainly because I forgot it even came out! I bought it this weekend as part of my Black Friday festivities and I'm pretty satisfied with it. The one joint that stood out to me from jump was Can't Stop Partying with Lil Wayne. Now, I'm not the biggest Wayne fan in the world, but he doesn't ruin the song. It's a pretty good combo and will probably be the next single. Check it.

I hope Rebirth sounds even remotely this good.

LSU's Porter Named at Memphis, Becomes NCAA's 10th Current Black Head Coach

Larry Porter, LSU's associate head coach and running backs coach, has officially been named as the head coach for the University of Memphis. Porter will not only be a head coach for the first time, but he will become the 10th current African-American head coach in college football.

Congrats are in order.

Aight, So the Season is Pretty Much a Wrap, But These Are DOPE

Nike does it again.

This week, college football teams around the country will showcase their special Nike Pro-Combat uniforms. Nike has completely redesigned the jerseys of 10 schools (LSU, Miami, Mizzouri, Florida State, Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, TCU, Virginia Tech and Ohio State) all the way from the helmet and jersey to the dry fits and cleats. It's a win-win for both parties since Nike gets free advertising and the players and fans get to see new jerseys. Especially for teams like LSU and Ohio State with really conservative jerseys. Not only do the jerseys add a new look to the programs but the jerseys are up to 40% lighter than the normal ones.

I mean, it might not sound like much, but these jerseys are DOPE. And don't sleep on the gloves. Each team has their logo one the palm of the gloves. Dopeness.

See the whole story and a better look here.

Miami, Mizzou, FSU
Oklahoma, Florida, Texas
TCU, Virginia Tech, Ohio State

In Depth looks and slogans for each school:
LSU: Cochon De Lait [Pig Roast]
Miami: The U Knows
Mizzou: Beast Mode
Florida State: Fear the Spear
Oklahoma: Stake Our Claim
Florida: Fear the Mission
Texas: Texas Fight
TCU: Don't Back Down
Virginia Tech: Ut Prosim [ that I may serve]
Ohio State: Earned

Well damn.

I've Had Enough. This Really Has to Stop.

I really can't have another sports weekend like this past weekend.

First, LSU goes and loses to Ole Miss. Jealous'd.
Then, the Bears lost to the Eagles in Chicago. Jealous'd2.
And then, to round things out, the Bulls go to Portland and get embarrassed by the Blazers. Jealous'd3.

This really can't happen again. I'm tired of looking like this when I watch SportsCenter:

Dave Chappelle...Best Ever??

No disrespect to some of the all-time greats [Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Bernie Mac, Richard Pryor] but I really feel like Dave Chappelle might be the best to ever do stand up. Not just my favorite but the BEST. I know that Delirious and Raw are considered two of the funniest shows in history, but damn, I wasn't even alive when Delirious dropped and Raw came out a month after my first birthday. This dude Dave just had two things that the others didn't: Relatability and Timing. I'm just sayin, watch Killin' Em Softy and For What It's Worth and try to tell me it's not some of the funniest shit ever.

In case you don't have the DVD, Killin' Em Softly in its entirety...

"Gun store, Gun store, Liquor store, Gun Store. WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU TAKING ME?!" [Part 2, 6:50]

Classic shit.

Bulls vs. Lakers Tonight

Well, it's not quite MJ vs. Magic but it should still be a good one. If you know me, then you know I'm one of the biggest Kobe fans in it...except when he's playing the Bulls.

We need this W...but so do the Lakers.

Not Bad, Bulls. Not Bad...

The Bulls were FINALLY able to eclipse 100 points as they held off the Kings last night, 101-87 in Sacramento. John Salmons had 23 for Chicago, while Donte Greene dropped 24 to lead all scorers. I still feel like Greene should have gotten a technical foul for that dumb ass haircut, but it didn't happen. The Bulls improved to 6-4 and will visit the Los Angeles Kobe Bryants Lakers Thursday night. Highlights from last night's game:
Good win, Bulls.

I'm still shouting "LBJ/2010" though. #kanyeshrug

Music of the Moment - November 17, 2009

I wish I'd heard about the Flaming Lips years ago but I gotta cop another Late Pass. The band has been together since 1983 but I pretty much ignored the mass majority of their music until I heard their new song Watching the Planets from their latest album Embryonic. I'd be lying if I didn't say it was a little different, but it's still dope. Especially the drums. Check it out:

The Flaming Lips - Watching the Planets

Download: Watching the Planets

[Note: WHATEVER YOU DO...don't Google the video for this song. Just don't. Take my word for it. Seriously. Dope song, bad video. You've been warned.]

Iron Mic Sypher featuring Kevin Durant aka JWerk aka Wal-Mart

Since my man Jinx over at The Chinese Society decided to post his favorite video from the Iron Mic Sypher [sic] via the homie @HardcorGentleman, I figured I'd do the same. Me and @Mr_SZS nearly died laughing at this shit. It's no Eli Porter but still fucking funny.
TRY TO tell me that the 2nd rapper JWerk doesn't look like Kevin Durant.
He LITERALLY said "Ye'herme" at 0:06, 0:13, 5:26, 5:34, 5:40, 5:53, 6:11, 6:12, 6:14, 6:18, 6:20, 6:22, [whispers at 6:24], 6:34 and 6:38.

That's too many Ye'hermes.

New Clipse...Again

NOW we're getting somewhere. Peep the new video for Popular Demand from the Clipse and Cam'ron. Three of my all-time favorites?? You bet. Damn, I can't wait for this album.
Go holla at cha uncle.

Music of the Moment - November 12, 2009

Gotta make this one pretty quick. Headed to Tin Lizzy's with @martEMCfly, @KxG_215 and this nigga Rhodan, I mean @Pbbt. Anyway, The Hood Internet is a duo from Chicago that specializes in mash-ups of popular music. Sounds pretty basic, right?? It's not. They take hip hop verses with rock and alternative music and pair them up...and vice versa. They've been doing this since 2007 and none of their mixtapes have let me down yet. So far they have four Hood Internet Mixtapes, a Hood Internet vs. Chicago Mixtape featuring all Chicago artists and even a few with individual artists [Lykke Li and The Pack. I know, random.] I decided to post two of my favorite Kanye mash-ups. Enjoy. Their mixtapes are free and can be downloaded here.

Oh yea, you better know what tomorrow is...
I'll give you a hint. It rhymes with "It's my jirthday."

New Clipse...Can We Get the Album Already????

Clipse dropped a video for "Door Man" off their upcoming album, Till the Casket Drops yesterday. It's pretty cool, but I was really hoping that they'd put one out for "Popular Demand" with Cam'ron since it's heroine + sex: dope as fuck. But hey, beggars can't be choosers. Album's due on December 8. Let's hope it's for real this time...
Oh, and the album art was released today. I'm not really that impressed. #kanyeshrug

One thing for sure: There is NO shortage of snookups in the video. Ariiiite.

Bulls...I Have No Words For You

Actualy, that's not true. I have five.

1. Lebron
2. Chicago
3. Two
4. Thousand
5. Ten

Make it happen, because ↓ this ↓ ain't gon work.
We got beat. No replay necessary.

Music of the Moment - November 9, 2009 [Wale Edition]

Less than a day away from the much anticipated release of Wale's debut album. I know kids have been waiting 5-6 years [and even longer] for this joint to drop. Since most of the people I know have had the album for about a week now, I won't waste time posting joints from the album. [Partly because I haven't listened to it yet.] Instead, I'll just post up some of my favorite somewhat lowkey mixtape tracks from Wale. You prolly know him from the rap.

Yea, I'm Still Salty...LAWRY'S.

This play ended our SEC/National Championship hopes. It was the worst call in COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY. Even the Bama fans watching the game knew the refs blew it. In case you missed it:
I'm not even saying we would have scored after getting the pick, but damn. Can the refs at LEAST get the right call?!

Fucking SEC officials...

Beans to G.Unit???

Word on the street is that Beanie Siegel may have found a new home at G-Unit. I'm not sure how I feel about this mainly because 50's other artists haven't had sustainable careers, BUT they did have better deals than most of artists at the Roc. Another reason I'm kind of skeptical is that the other G-Unit "projects" [Mase, Mobb Deep, Freeway] didn't really work out either. I can't knock 50 for tryin to snatch up the one other rapper that might have Jay as much as him but somehow this happening a week before his album Before I Self Destruct drops is just a liiiiiiittle "convenient." For Beans' sake, I hope it works out.

It was all good just a week ago.

J.J. Redick...?? WORRRRRRRDDDD???

So apparently, J.J. Redick is going to be the next NBA player to drop a rap CD. Wow. This really makes no sense, but we'll see how it works out. Hopefully better than his NBA career because we're all waiting on that to take off. You can get the full story here. It actually seems like the real deal. And just for the record, I actually liked J.J. when he was back at Duke. He was [arguably] one of the best shooters ever at the level but it just never translated to the league. Oh well, maybe he can rap.

Don't bet on it though.
I mean, just look at Ron Artest:

[Note: In Ron's defense, there ARE sufficient snookups in his video.]

The first single from Redick's unnamed supergroup is called "Waste Management."
My god. Please let the hilarity ensue.

Jay & Beans: What REALLY Happened...

I'm sure we're all wondering what really went down between Jay, Dame and Sigel at the Roc. Well the good people at got us covered. They even made it so simple that a kid could follow it. Peep:
Low key, the funniest part of this shit is Freeway's beard and Kanye's hair.
Classic shit.
