Well it’s another dreary day in the illadelph. Winter is rolling through, so not only is the concert season coming to an end but we’re starting to really get shat on by that terrible Pennsylvania weather.
I don’t like waking up with the world all wet, especially not after a night of really effed dreams. I can’t help but feel like there’s a correlation.
Yes. I am that self-centered.
Whatever, I’m not gonna bore you with my egotism, unlike yesterday, where I just threw words at you, today, I’ve got some jams (and various other goodies.)
What’s really ill? Just chilling at work (once again) devoid of things to fact-check, so I thought I might hit ya’ll with a little something-something.
What’s really hood people? Sorry there’s been a lack of updates this week, been busy with school, working like a dog for Philly Weekly. Not really, that gig’s been chill, had to do a bit of a flyer safari today which would’ve been better if it wasn’t so hot, but all in all enjoyed it. I rarely ever go down to South Street because everyone always wants to go in the Spring and Summer when it’s filled with assholes. South Street on a weekday in the Fall is perfect.
Now, let’s get to some new music, shall we?
Mark Ronson/The Business Intl/Spank Rock
Mad Decent/Das Racist collaboration.
Need I say anymore?
So it’s finally here, the remix of Justin Bieber’s “Runaway Love” featuring Raekwon and Kanye West….and…yeah.
This isn’t the future we wanted.
Let me just put this out (in case it was in doubt) – Kanye and Raekwon come fucking hard on this track, and it’s helped even more by the fact that Kanye used a sample from the classic “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthin To Fuck Wit.” That whole bit is great, it really is, it’s just the fucking Bieber I can’t get over.
I’m not going to sit here and wantonly knock the little Canuck. I legitimately have no beef with him, he can keep doing his thing because for the most part it doesn’t intersect into my daily life. But right now it is so I’m gonna have to escalate just a little bit.
I’ve been mad slow on my music tip these past few days with packing for school and what not. But here’s the newest track from the busy Kanye West. “Monster” features Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but it’s pretty good and Kanye continues to impress, garnering more hype for his next album slated to drop in September. Also, Nicki Minaj straight up murders this track.
Just found out about this over at Pigeons and Planes. It’s from a track on the new Big Mike mixtape. Gotta give Weezy props for timing out the release of his material so it doesn’t seem like he was gone at all. He’s gonna make a big splash when he’s home in November.
Check out the rest of what I’ve got for you this b-e-a-utiful afternoon after the cut.
