[CLASSIC] Freeway, Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel - What We Do

One of my all-time favorite Rocafella songs. Free, Jay and Beans over a Just Blaze beat. What better combination was there in 2003?? Don't worry, I'll wait.
I still get hype when I hear this joint.

Shit was all good back then.

Name Dropping. The Story of The Game's Life

Granted, this is a great song. Classic even. But it's the perfect example of why I can't listen to The Game anymore. All he does is name drop for four minutes straight. Wtf man. I mean, the only thing worse would be name dropping for five minutes. Check out this damn list and let me know if I missed any.
  1. Dre (3)
  2. Pac
  3. Snoop Dogg
  4. Stevie Wonder
  5. Kanye West
  6. Whitney Houston
  7. Martin Luther King
  8. Aaliyah
  9. Left Eye
  10. Mya
  11. 50
  12. Vivica
  13. Frankie Beverly
  14. Maze
  15. Dave Maze
  16. Eazy
  17. Jam Master Jay
  18. Huey Newton
  19. Eric Wright
  20. Ronald Reagan
  21. Mike lim
  22. Whoo Kid
  23. Clue
  24. B.I.G.
  25. Marshall Mathers
  26. Curtis Jackson
  27. Marvin Gaye
Whew. I think that's all of em.

Damn, Game.
If you're gonna name drop, at least do it in a diss.

You, Sir, Just Might be the Worst Football Player Ever

I have NO idea what this kid was thinking. I understand that a play can go the wrong way but THIS???!!

Worst ever? Yes...until you see this one:
Both are worth the facepalm of the century. C'mon sons.

It gets no worse.

Dos Equis x Kaws

First off, shouts to my man Franchise over at Brand Franchise for the heads up on these Kaws-designed beer bottles for Dos Equis. Not only is are the bottles extra dope, but Dos Equis is one of my favorite beers. Check out this promo video for the beer:

Extra dope.

I know what I'll be drinking in September.

Late Pass: Mac Miller is Dope

So apparently I was sleeping on Mac Miller when I first heard of him last year. His music was straight but just not really polished. But when I stumbled across his new K.I.D.S. mixtape, I could tell he'd improved...a lot. Like a whole lot. It's not mind-blowing, life-changing music, but it's dope to ride to. [As cliché as that sounds.] Being only 18, you wouldn't really expect the dopeness of this mixtape. Still not sure what you're in store for?? Think Mike Posner - the wackness x Wiz Khalifa x Asher Rosh - sounding like Eminem = Mac Miller. And the videos are pretty dope. Check out these from Mac Miller:

Traffic in the Sky // Don't Mind If I Do
Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza

Nikes on my Feet

La La La La

Download the K.I.D.S. mixtape here.

And put your thumbs up.

Random NBA Awesomeness: Detlef Schrempf on Parks and Recreation

I have no idea how I missed this. Parks and Rec is a funny ass show.

For the rest of the deleted scenes, go here.

9 Days...

Kickoff's just a little over a week away.

Yea, I'm hype.

Power Hour. [Kanye West Power Parody]

This is amazing for a number of reasons. Mainly because of how close it looks to the actual Power video. And then again just because of its sheer awesomeness. All my bros and brostitutes out there should dig it.

Kanye West himself can't even get mad at this one.

Diggy feat. Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell - Oh Yeah!

I'm actually not ashamed to say that this new Diggy joint is dope. Even though you could probably throw me on a track with Lupe and Pharrell and it'll probably come out dope, Diggy really held his own. I was skeptical at first but after the Made You Look video that Phil the God did awhile back, I was sold. Check out the newest joint from Diggy Simmons, Lupe and Pharrell, Oh Yeah!

Download: Oh Yeah!

Airborne coming soon.

And in case you need a late pass, the Phil the God directed Made You Look video. Dopeness.

People Dunk Like THIS in London????

Just wow.

These are video game dunks courtesy of Justin Darington. Check out the one at the 1:18 mark. Sheeeit.

Somebody get this man a muthaFUCKIN scholarship.

Kanye West feat. Jay-Z - Power Remix

Holy shit this is dope.

"No one man should have all that Power..."

Kanye West feat. Jay-Z - Power Remix

THIS is the Kanye I've been waiting for.

I'm glad these last two joints have sounded dope because the first joint with Charlie Wilson had me like:

Impromptu Dunk Contest Featuring Terrico White. Wow.

Another gem I found over at BDL, which along with BullBearSock are worth daily reads for any basketball fan. This is a TwitVid of a recent rookie photo shoot turned impromptu Dunk Contest. Even with all of the jaw-dropping dunks, the hands down winner is Detroit Pistons' rookie Terrico White. Watch how he ethers everyone at the 2:18 mark. Shit's disgusting.
Yea...he could have won last year's dunk contest with that one. Easily. But even with this amazing athleticism, this will most likely be the last time I post about White -- he's a former Ole Miss Rebel and currently a Detroit Piston.

The Tigers and Bulls fan in me just won't allow it.

New NBA Jerseys for 2010-2011. Ehh...

Not sure how many people care about jerseys as much as I do, I like jerseys. Not really to wear like I did back in middle school but I still think they're dope. I got the scoop on some of the new ones for the upcoming season from Trey over at BDL. But honestly, they're not even really that dope.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Alright, so they're starting off pretty bad. And not that they get much better, I can understand the Cavs wanting to get new jerseys. They adopted these jerseys at the beginning of the Lebron era back in 2003 and now that he's gone, it's time for a change. I get it...but they're just not tight. They might instantly become the league's most regular jerseys but whatever.

Utah Jazz
I mean, these aren' bad?? It's hard to say. They're not even the traditional Jazz colors. If you took the name off the jersey I might even say...Milwaukee Bucks?? But at least they're...different.

Los Angeles Clippers
These would probably be the worst of the new joints if it weren't for the Cavs' new ones. There's not even much different from last year's with the exception of the small ass font on the red ones. I would have expected more from these. Like a lot more. Look how sad Blake Griffin is haha

Golden State Warriors
When the Warriors announced their new court, I was pretty sure they would come out with new jerseys. What do you know, asamp was right. These aren't too bad considering they look like AAU jerseys. I don't know how you end up with these after having one of my favorite throwbacks in the NBA. IDK, it happens.

Minnesota Timberwolves
These might be the least terrible of the new jerseys. They might not seem too different from the ones that debuted just two years ago but at least they don't look like WNBA jerseys. Yea, those last ones were just turrible.

Man, I can't wait til the Bulls get some new joints. I'd even be hype for us to bring back the black with the pinstripe. I'll probably look like this:

Kanye West feat. Drake – Ghetto University [Snippet]


More music from Kanye that's supposedly on Dark Twisted Fantasy. I'm not sure if it's on the album, but I am sure that it's better than the last joint I heard. Check out the snippet:

Kanye West - Ghetto University feat. Drake

[Note: Shouts to herfection for the heads up.]

Plumlee Bros: Doin Work.

Slow down Duke, you killin em.

Not only will he dunk over a group of five, yes, five kids but Miles Plumlee has actually outdone himself by dunking literally over his younger brother Mason at this summer's Duke basketball camp. Five kids is amazing enough but his brother is just a shade under seven feet tall. Check it out:

Pretty dope and it looks like these two might be more athletic than we thought.

But I'm pretty sure my brother Orin and I could do this.

Don't believe me?? Then you can

Curren$y - Twistin Stank (Hard in the Paint)

Spitta doesn't sleep. It's obvious. Check out his new video for Twistin Stank over Wacka Flocka's Hard in the Paint beat.

If you haven't copped Pilot Talk yet, kill yourself....then go cop Pilot Talk.

"Makes My Dookie Twinkle."

Just a reminder of how fucking funny Dave Chappelle was/is.

Screenshots of Michael Jordan in NBA2K11

Yea, this is pretty official. Shots of MJ for 2K11 have been released and they're pretty much amazing. The first is from his rookie season and these bottom two are shots from the famous Flu Game.
Dope isn't even the word.

If you're not excited about this game, something might be wrong with you.

19 Days...


Less than three weeks away.

Let's go.

Good luck.

Don't Forget About Lupe's Mixtape Game: Hater Hop & Pens & the Needles

Don't get it twisted. Lupe's mixtape game during the mid-2000's could rival anyone's...yes, anyone's. I was listening to Farenheit 1/15 last night and I found myself excited for Lasers. Even though my favorite joint from this mixtape was Pen & the Needles, I had to throw Hater Hop on here too. I need this fucking album.
Hater Hop

Pen & the Needles

We want Lasers.

Like now.

But until then, might as well listen to some classics:
Touch the Sky - 2006
Farenheit 1/15 - 2006
Revenge of the Nerds - 2006
A Rhyming Ape - 2006
Enemy of the State [A Love Story] - 2009

If you can listen to all of these and not get hype for the album...well, I have no words for you.

Tim Tebow Lost One.

It's pretty common for NFL rookies to get hazed, and Tim Tebow is no different. This year veterans decided to a cut rookies' hair and Tebow's is um....shitty. And even as a die-hard LSU fan, I've always been able to stand Tebow. This, my friend, is for you a Coach Ford.

Timmy, THIS is when you cry.
But then again, it kinda has a Tim Tebow/ a Friar Tuck kinda look.

But still....ownd.

Can't Believe It's Been Two Years: RIP Bernie Mac

"I ain't scared of you muthafuckas."
-Bernie Mac

One of my favorite comedians of all time and I still feel like he's often overlooked in the Funniest Ever argument. Can't believe it's already been two years since he passed.

Photo of the Moment: JFK x RFK x Jay-Z x Kanye West

Even though it's definitely not a recent picture, this photo of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert is definitely among my favorite ever. It even inspired a dope picture of Kanye West and Jay-Z from a 2005 issue of XXL. The photo spread in the issue was actually ingenious because all the photos were modeled after pictures JFK took while in office. Dope idea...whoever thought of it. The JFK picture can also be found in Time Magazine's Illustrated History of the World's Most Influential Magazine. I first read about the book on the website and it features the best photos from the magazine's history. 430+ pages of amazing photos is definitely worth checking out.
Photobucket um, check it out.

Manchester United 10-11 Kits


Even though Manchester United, the best team in the land, released their 2010/11 home and away jerseys last month, I still got hype as hell when I got the email yesterday announcing that they were finally for sale. I'm definitely copping the long-sleeved away joint. Yea, I know soccer jerseys don't really matter but I like em.
You can find the home and away kits as well as t-shirts, soccer balls and everything else here.

And you can run and tell THAT.

30 Days...

With 30 days left until kickoff, I had to use my favorite Tiger to ever wear the number 30: Laron Landry. His NFL career has yet to really take off but this kid is nasty. Now Eric Reid from my alma mater Dutchtown High wears number 30. And he's dope too.


Still can't wait.

How Bout Some Ratatat???

I stumbled across this live performance from Ratatat from 2007's Wintercase concert. Can't hate on Ratatat in any form. I even included the studio versions for a little comparison. Nothing beats live music though. Check em:
Wildcat [Live]
Wildcat [Studio Version]
Loud Pipes [Live]
Loud Pipes [Studio Version]
Montanita [Live]
Montanita [Studio Version]

Oh yea, and if you're wondering, LP4 is STILL bangin.

Kid Cudi - Mojo So Dope. Yup.

If you thought there was no way Cudi could drop more music this summer, then you'd be dead wrong. Here's Mojo So Dope, the next song from his much-anticipated [by me at least] album, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. Couple days late because this campaign life is crazy. Check it out:
Kid Cudi - Mojo So Dope

Cudi is absolutely MURDERING this summer.
