Ball Or Sword?

February 27, 2009

Kids are presented with many choices growing up. Kick ball or freeze tag? Hot lunch or cold lunch? Fruity Pebbles or Frankenberry? To eat the glue or not eat the glue? When and if I ever have kids, before he or she has the chance to choose what crayon to use to color the sky(Perrywinkle). I will have to pose the most important question of them all: Ball or sword?

February 21, 2009

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..Zzzzzzzzzzz… Huh?! What?! *yawn* Oh, yeah…New Kiks Tyo “Sneaker & A Girl” tees. These just don’t garner the same excitement as they use to.

I mean all it will do is single handedly restore the east coast’s prominence in Hip Hop but who cares right? Anyways, haven’t done one of these in quite some time. Instead of the usual audio Sample Clearance post(and since I can’t find the original sample in mp3 format), let’s do it in video form shall we? My absolute favorite Nas song of all time produced by arguably my favorite producer of all time, Preemo. A church record combined with that boom-bap? Bear witness to the genius of DJ Premiere:

I honestly don’t know what the fuck this sample is:

…but the end result of just those first eight seconds is mind blowing:

“I’m like a whole lotta loot, I’m like crisp money/corporate accounts from a rich company…” -Nas
