I’m sure the video for “Regulate” is gonna be tweeted, blogged and linked to a million times today and I was trying to find another song to honor Nate Dogg with but really there is no other choice. BUT, me being the contrarian that I am…
Give me Mighty Mos and Madlib on a track and I’m in heaven. As much as I’m feeling Tyler The Creator, Odd Future and Lil’ B these days. This right here is my element, my center, my core. This is the Hip Hop where I feel most at home. Forever wearing my backpack.
Why is Mos still using a Myspace page?
I’m impressed at how well The Strokes have branded themselves and maintained their particular style and sound that is distinct only to them through 5 albums now. There are times where I want something new and something that isn’t rehashed but in this case I wouldn’t mind it if The Strokes just kept making the same kind of music over and over.
Hey guys remember Street Wear? Remember that? Man those days bring me back. I think it would be a fun idea to look back at Street Wear when it was still the “in” thing, you know for nostalgias sake. And to serve as a cruel reminder to myself how how much money I spent on those clothes and more importantly, how stupid I must’ve looked in them.
Here’s a Swagger shirt I bought which featured Iggy and Big-O of the Japanese rap group Shakkazombie(and co-owners of Swagger)and Lupe FIasco. I wanted to get the white version of the shirt but all that was available through my endless searching was the gross neon yellow one. But more important than the color, was the fit as it would’ve been nice to get one in my actual size. The shirt I ended up getting was way too long.(The particular site I ordered from was one that didn’t display the measurements of the garment) It was so long in fact when I tried it on before I put on any pants, it looked like I was attending a birthday slumber party for a 9 year old girl.
I sold it shortly after that and now looking back at the pics I took of it for the eBay auction(that tag next to my shirt is my eBay user name) I still really like the art on it and think it holds up as one of the best designed shirts of this last “Street Wear” era.
My personal favorite track off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. My review for this video can be summed up in two words: “Rihanna…wow.”
“All of the Lights” by Kanye West, Rihanna, Kid Cudi:
