Um, he did dunk on Jermaine O'Neal though...
In the midst of being disappointed by a my squad in Chicago, someone else from Chicago saved the day. Finally, Kanye's video for Amazing feat. Young Jeezy dropped. And did I mention it's a Hype Williams joint?? Very wavy indeed. And 'Ye has been doing mad production and guest appearances lately. I'm not mad.
I gotta make this post quick because the Bulls are about to come on. Anyway, today's joint is a remix of 1901 by Phoenix that I blogged about a few weeks ago. It was remixed by French bandThe Teenagers and it's pretty dope. Let me get this shit up so I can watch this W in Chicago. Oww.
Kid Cudi might really be nice. I've heard some good stuff from him, I've heard some aight stuff from him, but nothing bad. This new joint off of his latest mixtape, Dat Kid From Cleveland is pretty dope. It's called Daps & Pounds and it's just the latest of hot joints that Cudi has dropped. Check it out.
After my boys Francis and Chris let me know that that Lebron commercial I posted was actually old as hell, I felt like I needed to redeem myself. So when Chris showed me the Cavs remaking the Heineken commercial with the walk-in closet full of beer. First off, the commercial is dope but the Cavs version is ill too. I'm a big Kobe fan but if Lebron was able to get the MVP and a championship this year, I would be very happy.
First off, I LOVE Nicole Scherzinger. And Lebron's ads for Nike are always ill. This spot is kinda long (nh) but check it out. If not for another funny Lebron joint, but just because Nicole is fine. as. shit.
Clipse x Kanye. I'm there.
The first single for the Clipse upcoming album Till the Casket Drops is a beast. Kanye is back on his game and I'm down with it. Not surprising at all, right?? The most surprising part about this joint is that it's actually not Kanye on the beat. But even still, it really sounds like some 2002 classic Kanye shit. Whatever, it's still hot. Check out the joint by Clipse feat. Kanye West Kinda Like a Big Deal. Owwie.
I'm one of the few people that actually thinks Andy Milonakis is really funny. I mean, it's not like he's a comedic genius, but he made me and my friends laugh back in high school at least. The latest from this kid is his new song about Twitter called Let Me Twitter That. It's fucking funny. Mostly because I don't really like Twitter, but still I was dyin. Check out the vid.
Yeah, it's 4/20. And even though I don't really participate in the all of the festivities but I know someone who does, Asher Roth. His album dropped today and from the joints I've heard so far....I'm diggin it. I'm coppin as soon as I get out of advertising. Fuggggit. The lyrics are still pretty much there: all the happenings of the suburban, upper-middle class lifestyle. It's right up my alley. And he dropped on 4/20 for a reason. There's more talk about drugs than Season 3 of The Wire and more 90's references than an episode of Family Guy. [Those are good things btw.] Whatever though, decide for yourself. Here's Asher's latest video for Lark In My Go Kart. Oh, yeah and the entire album. Oww.
I ran across this video a few days ago and forgot to post it. My fault. It's basically what the title says its: Slow Motion Punches to the Face. And people are getting punished. I'm not a punchologist but I'm sure these joints hurt.
Game 1 of the series against Boston is on and we're looking pretty good. D.Rose is hitting his shots and distributing the ball well [15 and 6 in the first half.] Ben Gordon is on point like always. These KG-less Celtics are definitely beatable. Oww.
Yo I gotta post this song before it gets old. Kid Cudi x Kanye West x Rick Ross?? Oww. Plus, it's less than a week til Ross drops and I'm patiently waiting for his joint. Apparently I'm a pretty big Rick Ross fan these days. BAWSE. Plus Cudi is doin his thing right now. Fuggggit. Well this is the remix to Sky Might Fall by Kid Cudi and Rick Ross, produced by Kanye West. Owwie.
As an avid LSU fan, I find it
impossible difficult to find even a single reason to cheer for Tennessee. The one good thing about the school/athletic program is the head coach of the basketball team, Bruce Pearl. He's a coach that actually has fun doing what he does. From groping Erin Andrews, to cheering on the Lady Vols, he's one of the biggest personalities in college sports. And what he did on Monday was just more proof. At the Tennessee basketball award ceremony, Pearl showed up wearing an orange and white checkered blazer with no undershirt...and he rapped. [Or tried to.] This shit was hilarious and if I was a high school kid looking for a school to play for next year, Tennessee would have just shot up 10 spots. Ow. Check out the Bruce Pearl-inspired Countdown of the Most Memorable Sports Raps. [Note: The only missing is this. ESPN was wylin by leavin that one out. AND don't sleep on my man Les Miles at 3:20. Owww.]
For me to be such a big fan of the song Close to Me by The Cure, I guess I should at least be a fan of the band. I guess it's just that I like the song because I've heard it covered by at least four different bands, and everytime it's dope. I just heard about a tribute album called Perfect As Cats that's two discs worth of different bands covering classic Cure songs. If I check this joint out, I might actually start to like them. Ow.
Check out the original and two cover versions of the best Cure song of all time, Close to Me.
Today was a pretty wild day.
I woke up to a blinking clock after a power outage in the middle of the night, so of course I was late for my early class. [Blown.] Then I get there to see that I got an A on a test that I was sure I failed. [Hype.] Then I found out that my consecutive 1:00 and 2:25 classes were cancelled due to a Morehouse visit from Ben Bernanke. [Extra hype.] Once I get there with Stew and Mike and we made it through the secret service, they told us that we wouldn't be able to leave once the joint started. [Blown. And we left.] So Mike gets the idea that we should get on Rock Band back at my crib. Of course I abided, so we ditched campus and Mike and Stew were gonna ride over and meet me at my crib. So they get here and Stew walks in shaking his head. I look at Mike and he's doing the same thing. I was like, Tell 'Em Why You Mad, Son. Apparently, on the way to my crib the boys got pulled over by a Georgia State Trooper. The trooper claimed they were going 75 in a 50...and they weren't. The worst part was, the speed limit was 55!! But despite all of that, our band The Boomsookas killed Rock Band for about 3 hours.
But even though he's gonna beat the case like Rocky, I guess the moral of the story is, "If Ben Bernanke comes to speak at your school, GO." But if you decide to skip it, drive slow homie.
First off, I'm not a very big Moby fan. Actually, I don't really care for his music at all. As a matter of fact, the only reason I checked out Play when I was younger was because I wanted to make sure that I didn't like it. [Couldn't call myself musically well-rounded if I didn't.] Regardless of all that, when I saw Moby's new video for Shot In The Back of the Head, I instantly liked it. It's mad artsy, and as gay as that sounds, I think that's why it's so dope. [Not because it's gay, because it's artsy.] The song is actually pretty ill too. No vocals, so he couldn't really
fuck mess that up. If his new album, Wait For Me is full of joints like this, I might even pick it up. He just announced the title and tracklist for the album today on his website. Anyway, check out this new video from Moby. Oww....Oww for a Moby joint?? Damn I'm slippin.
So Jinx showed me this earlier yesterday at my crib. It's mildly racist but I still think it's funny. The worst part is that some of these are real names that people are naming their kids these days. You should have seen some of the names of the kids at the school where I volunteer. Parents need to do better. Sorry if your name is in here though. T'd. hahaha
Last night I did my usual routine of doing homework/watching classic comedy movies. This time the channel was TBS and the movies were Happy Gilmore and Old School but between the two was TBS's World's Funniest Office Commercials Special. Since I love commercials and advertising altogether, this joint was right up my alley. [Pause.] It was pretty much the same as the usual World's Funniest Commercials jawn, but all of the commercials in this one were in the corporate setting. And did I mention that it was hosted by Mike O'Malley??
Fucking Brilliant. If any of the job offers that I get even slightly resembles one of these commercials, then I'm T'd. Oh well. Here go my favorites from last night. [Most of these are available at the TBS blog at veryfunnyads.com, even though the site sucks.]
I don't mean the actual celebrating of the holiday isn't the same, that's still cool. I'm talking about what the kids are wearing on Easter Sunday these days. Let me explain. When my brother and I were young, our Mom used to make sure we were fly as hell on Easter. And by fly, I mean we were wearing bright ass pastel colors, stone-washed jeans and Cliff Huxtable sweaters. Ill. I refuse to believe that my brother and I were the only kids forced to wear loud and obnoxious clothing each and every Easter Sunday. My all-time favorite was the blue, pink, green and yellow plaid suits with the matching ties and a matching yellow shirt. That's what Easter fashion is all about!! Our Easter suits were so tight that all the other kids were looking at us like:
So I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to do tonight and my boy Torrance let's me know that I'm missing out by not checking out the new Maybach Music with Ross, Kanye, Wayne and everyone's favorite hookster, T.Pain. As soon as I heard Kayne's verse, I was convinced. 'Ye's lyricism has improved over the years, and this joint is no exception. Wayne didn't even disappoint me on this one, so he's a little bit further from being permanently excommunicated. Check it out though.
First off, last night at Sabor was pretty ill. [Shouts to MJ. You were right.] Me and Jinx rolled up there and it felt like damn near the entire senior class was there. Even Brandon Lafell was there. Yeah, that Brandon Lafell. Cool dude, could have been a first-rounder, but I'm
fucking glad he's coming back this year. Aight, back to last night. The girls were on point, all of my people were in there and they weren't really bustin heads for drinks. I think we might be addicted to the club again. This can't be good. On to the music. Two new videos for today. I peeped the first one on Kanye's blog and it' a fan video for Street Lights off of 808's & Heartbreak. It's pretty dope too. Peep Street Lights directed by Mills Miller. Ow.
So today my computer could NOT get the internet to save my LIFE. I was sitting in class with Jinx and I was buggin when I couldn't connect to Morehouse's slouch ass wireless. I'm sitting in the first of three consecutive Tuesday/Thursday classes (1.5 hours each) and my INTERNET doesn't work?? I spazzed. I mean, SPAZZED. Jinx was like, "Yo Samp, settle down. You're buggin." I responded like this:
Michigan State failed to shock the world last night and got mildly embarrassed by a much better North Carolina team 89-72. [It wasn't as close as the score makes it seem.] This really shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone...except all of the Michigan State fans that appeared overnight. Again, I'll admit that their run was impressive, but there's not way that they really thought they were going to win last night. It seemed like they were out of the game right after the opening tip. Hansbrough = Yaye. Lawson = Beastly. Ellington = MAN. All three of them had big nights for the Heels, combining for 58 of the Tar Heels' points. Ty Lawson also set a Final Four record with 8 steals on the night. It was never really a game after went up 20 in the first half. Just peep the game flow chart:
The Tar Heels even set an NCAA Tournament record by scoring 55 points in the FIRST HALF, which game them another tournament record by having a 21-point lead at halftime. This marks yet ANOTHER example of a Big Ten team being dominated in a Championship game hahaha. You lose.
And yo, why was Magic Johnson at the game looking healthy as hell?? What AIDS??? Man, Family Guy was right, that nigga is down to one AID.
And for the record, I am neither a UNC fan nor hater. I was mad neutral with this game, but I think it's time to stop hating on Tyler Hansbrough. So he works his ass off, performs at a high level and he gets results. Four-time, First Team All-American, ACC/National Player of the Year, ACC All-Time Career Leading Scorer, and a 'ship. Why the hate?? You can hate the commentators for loving his dirty drawls, and his game might not transfer to the NBA. But that's not his fault.
