Lupe Fiasco Cancelling His Mixtape Plans AGAIN


Referring to Enemy of the State...
"I was plotting on doing the follow-up to that," Lupe said. "Simply because [Enemy of the State] was short. And I felt like it was space to do another one. I was gonna do another one called Friend to the People, but I started to get wind that people had songs they shouldn't have had. I was like, 'This is just gonna open the floodgates if I come out with another record. I know these dudes are threatening to leak records and do crazy stuff.' Sometimes I feel there may be too much Lupe music out there — whether it be old stuff or new stuff or freestyles. I don't want to have a ton of music sitting out. I made the decision to fall back from it and really focus on the climb. We were a couple of weeks away from doing that"

DJ Absolute tape...
"With this Absolute tape, I had to tell him straight up, 'We homeboys, and you got all this old music, but it ain't time right now. It's too much going on. It's too many people with music they shouldn't have, and I don't want to get it clouded,' " said Lupe, who's putting out his third LP, Lasers, this summer. The lead cut from the album, "I'm Beaming," was recently leaked without Lupe's consent."

Lasers...
"There's investigations going on," he said. "So let's just postpone that and wait until we got a clearer time to do it. Even with that, we're going in to Lasers. The one thing I don't want with that is confusion. I want the message to at least connect until we get to the release date. After that, we can do whatever. Right now, it's Lasers time."

Brey Quick - Gobstopper

http://i49.tinypic.com/2djp2jn.jpg
So the other day, I pitched this instrumental over to Brey Quick and he was more than excited about this track produced by Seven. Homie hit me within a few minutes, FROM ICELAND mind you, saying "Im READY!" The time difference didn't stop him from working on his music that's for sure.. "its 511am... I woke up out of nowhere... Saw the tweet.. Heard the beat... Im ready to rock.."

Nero - Far Away From Here (Prod. by Woody)

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/7564/smallere.jpg
Nero's back at it, after shutting it down for nearly 8 months musically. But then again, are we really gonna call it a shut down? Because you KNEW this was coming didn't you? Now the most interesting thing about this whole track is that, as I listen, the whole tone reminds me of another young artist... Charles Hamilton. Now some of you kids out there are probably thinking "oh no.. not Sonic the Hamilton.. he's nothing like Nero." But if you check the content of the lyrics, the openness of the concept and his ability to isolate himself (between his past problems & situations) you'll notice he allows himself to be vulnerable at times in order to speak the truth, this is definitely a skill Charles Hamilton is known for. With that mentality, he cannot fail... well unless he decides to lie about some J Dilla input on his project and get lit up by his girl on video. But I'm sure Nero will fly where Charles has fallen, so enjoy the track

Ironically he's worked with Hollywood FLOSS, which didn't catch my eye until after I already downloaded it. Nice southern style, good bars and a couple of dope beats to match.

Thirty Seconds To Mars



Well since Natac did it, I'm gonna post some other shit for yall too. I was first introduced to Thirty Seconds to Mars by the single they released with Kanye. It was hot, so I decided to look into their whole album. Lo and behold...shit was dope. Its by no means hip-hop. Not even close. But is hip-hop the only musical genre out there? nope. Is it the only genre with good music? HELL NO. So open your ears. You will probably enjoy it. This is the intro of their last album This Is War.

I'm going to have to track these 2 down and see if we can see what they have planned next. Not necessarily hip-hop but then again, I can't give J*Davey a genre at all right now. ***Get Together is track 4. Check it out, its got some real dope vocals.

Sad news. Taken from HHU. All the info is via the big homie Clif Soulo. Enjoy the episode.
A new episode of Gordon Gartrell Radio! Phonte touches on his personal life, Tiger Woods, The Illuminati/Jay-Z ish, and the status of Little Brother. I wish it wasn't so, but the time has come. Little Brother is releasing their 4th, and last album. It's bittersweet, but I'm glad and thankful that they are atleast dropping one more album and not pulling an Outkast on the fans. "Leftback" will be the title and is dropping around March or April (hopefully). Whenever it drops, I'll definitely be purchasing it.

Doom: An interview with Eye Weekly

http://media.eyeweekly.topscms.com/images/ff/93/0d0d684741b79f29e31a6b530c4e.jpeg
This article goes deep into the career of MF Doom and alot of his intentions for his music. It also touches on whether the character Doom sometimes oversteps his boundaries as far as offensive material. Then of course they discuss the controversy of Doom impostors. For the record this article is detailed as all hell. One of the most extensive interviews we've ever seen on Doom. Throw Stones has their own batch of into to include here as well:

Via Throw Stones

“Cruel Intentions” written by Dave Morris and published in Toronto's Eye Weekly, Jan. 21, 2010. Illustration by Jack Dylan.

For a self-described supervillain, hip-hop MC and producer DOOM has a lot of fans. But with a reputation that’s steadily growing more sinister, is DOOM’s creator trying to alienate his audience — or does this character have an evil mind of its own?

QuESt - The Reason: The Documentary [Presented By ImFlashy]


A true story. I pretty much watched QuESt come up and he's honestly one of the fastest up & comers to date. As far as getting co-signs from 2Dope & Illroots, he pretty much tells the story. It just goes to show all you rappers out there, you have to get up to a VERY VERY high level of lyricism and conceptual depth just to complete with guys like this, in the blog world, but once you get there, there are no limits. Welcome to the jungle boys...
So let me give you quick insight on this project, back in December I went to check out the MULTIVERSAL show headlined by Shawn Chrystopher, Jovi Rockwell and QuESt. Before it was time for QuESt to get on stage I decided to introduce myself and let him know how I felt about his music, then pitched him the idea about doing a short documentary. He was down but we didn’t start until like a month later.
With that said that brings us to this short clip at his Barbershop which was our first stop on an extensive day of filming. In the footage QuESt discusses the blog where he first built his exposure with Waxx from illroots and how Shake of 2dopeboyz apologized for sleeping on him.

Copyright Criminals: A Documentary On The History Of Sampling

"Copyright Criminals examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law, and (of course) money. This documentary traces the rise of hip-hop from the urban streets of New York to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry. For more than thirty years, innovative hip-hop performers and producers have been re-using portions of previously recorded music in new, otherwise original compositions. When lawyers and record companies got involved, what was once referred to as a “borrowed melody” became a “copyright infringement.”The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground—while also featuring emerging hip-hop artists from record labels Definitive Jux, Rhymesayers, Ninja Tune, and more."
Copyright Criminals airs January 19th on PBS and the film will be available from indiepixfilms.com on January 26th.

Ok so this guy is new to the site so his people at MAC Media pretty much have all the info for you. Its a brief bit of info and the song is below. Solid stuff from Basic Vocab, nice production and better bars. Check it below.
After releasing their debut, The General Dynamic, in 2006, Basic Vocab would go on to be featured in Vibe, Urb, XLR8R Magazines (among many) and most of the esteemed Urban Net destinations as well. Their debut was given an extra boost by the LP's breakout single "Come Get With It" which was featured on HBO's wildly popular show Entourage (Season 5, Episode 8) and Miami Ink. Their appearance on Entourage resulted in over 250K Net plays of "Come Get With It."
In April of 2010, Basic Vocab (JL Sorrell, Mental Growth and Tony Galvin) will return with their sophomore LP, A Better Way, which once is primarily produced by Tony Galvin (who has produced tracks for T.I., Young Jeezy, Trick Daddy, Trina and Nelly).

Song of The Day


AGAIN. Phonte>>>Than your favorite rapper. Some of you might be like "Naw son chill...." but yo tell this song and his verse isn't CRAZY nice and I will stop blogging

"This is the last stop, last chance, last train to greatness
Last pain I take within my own chance
For Hip Hop, I feel I got to take a strong stance
I'm sick of that bullshit, hell I'm a grown ass man
I had to sit back, think, pause and recline
Gain a sense of myself while I'm caught in the grind
I could just throw some words together and call it a rhyme
But I'm tryna change the world eight bars at a time
That's what deep thoughts will do to you kid
Have you thinking bout existence and how hard it usually is
I'm kinda young but I ain't new to the biz
Just wanna hear my beats knock like past opportunities did
Phonte still burning it - rhymes so ahead of his time
I reminisce and see future occurrences"
