Let's go to work!

That's a good look...

Finally! My dude Mike Vick has a NFL home. The Philadelphia Eagles have signed homie to a 2-year contract. Say what you want about Vick, but everybody...EVERYBODY deserves a second chance.

When he got convicted, people said "SEND HIM TO JAIL!"

So he went.

Did 23-months. Paid his debt to society. You get it? DEBT TO SOCIETY. Society meaning US, the people. A jury of his peers (meaning us) found him guilty. He accepted that as well as the sentancing and took it all like a man. So what if he went back to the hood real quick? That's the only place that supported him through everything. But yet and still, it's people that don't want to let it go and let him live. They will forever hold it over his head even though he paid his debt to everybody.

That's the one thing I really hate about some people. If a man apologizes, does his bid and apologizes again he don't owe anybody anything. He did what he was supposed to do.

So, if I commend anybody...I commend Mike Vick for walking tall through everything and bouncing back. Forget the naysayers, just focus on your game homie.

ALSO, y'all check for the big homie Omar Gaither. Charlotte, NC native, Myers Park and UT Graduate -- now doing major things on the Eagles Defense. Check for him on Sundays.


Timbaland + Rockstar Games = OH SH*T.

I just found my Christmas gift. Up top we have a teaser video for Rockstar Games' new title "Beaterator;" and yes, it is exactly what you think it is.
"Built from the foundation of Rockstar’s widely-acclaimed original web version of Beaterator, Beaterator for PSP system and PlayStation Network puts a world-class mixer at your fingertips – enabling easy, powerful and innovative creation. Featuring original music and a sound-kit which includes thousands of loops and sounds produced by Rockstar and multi-platinum producer/entertainer Timbaland exclusively for Beaterator.

Coming September 29th to PSP and PlayStation Network"

Lifted from nahright.



The Message - Nas

This song right here? This song will always and forever be my joint. "It was written..." was the first piece of Hip-Hop that I owned. I remember...I let the tape rock 'til the tape popped....and for some reason, I now have 2 copies of the CD, but I don't know how.

The Notorious C.E.O.

I came up on this real nice article today, over at a blog I frequent: The Metric System. Titled the "The Notorious CEO: Ten Startup Commandments," Robert Moore flips the classic song and applies it entrepreneurs tryin to come up.
Rule nombre uno: never let no one know how much dough you hold”
For most companies, there isn’t a tremendous amount of upside to disclosing financials. As such, few privately held companies choose to do so. As Biggie says, broadcasting your financial performance can “breed jealousy,” increasing operational risks and arming your competitors with a more informed sense of your company’s weaknesses.

“Number two: never let ‘em know your next move”
Innovation drives long-term business value. If your company prematurely discloses its strategic plans, it gives your competitors a head-start on emulating or surpassing your innovative strides. It may be tempting to post your 12-month plan on the company blog, but beware the strategic edge it provides to your competitors once it’s out there.

“Number three: never trust nobody”
A healthy sense of paranoia is a valuable asset for business operators. Businesses should take steps to protect their intellectual property, including protection through patents or well-protected trade secrets."

R. Kelly + Tyrese - Pregnant (Snippet)

Mannnn....I don't know what to think about this song. I mean, I'm not tryin to enable this alleged Pedo...but uhhhh, don't this kneegrow know how to make a song about anything and make it sound good? From "You remind me of my jeep," to "put my key in the ignition," to "thoiya thanga thanga," to sexin in the kitchen....Kells know how to make a hit, I can't front. But "Girl you make me wanna get you pregnant"???? I'm tryin to hold in my laughter. Check it out.


Getcha scrap game up...

I was in Durham @ The Ale House (drunk, might I add) when I saw this epic beatdown. I had MUCH respect for Forrest Griffin before this fight, but now I have ALL the respect in the world for Anderson Silva. Homeboy moved up 20 lbs for this fight, and handed Griffin his @ss. Enjoy.



So...Kay Slay brings D-Block and G-Unit together for a track??? Of course 50 wasn't on it -- as a matter of fact, I wonder what Fif' has to say about this. This is crazy..

Peep the new track here:

DJ Kay Slay feat. Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, Styles P, Bun B, Papoose, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo & Ray J - You Heard Of Us (Remix)

Peep some classic Jada/50 Beef here below.

Jadakiss - Checkmate


N.C. Legends - Anthony Hamilton

Earlier today, I was thinking about how NC has always been in the background, lurking around in the music scene, entertainment and frankly, American history period. B.I.G. got knocked here, Jordan -- the greatest -- rocked Carolina Blue, Frank Lucas was from here, and perhaps one of the best soul singers of our time, Anthony Hamilton, was born and raised in this Tar Heel State.

I remember when I first heard "Coming From Where I'm From," I knew he was gonna make moves. That album was ridiculous. I keep it in rotation on the iPod...the big homie never gets a skip from me. I have something very special in the works with some A-Ham music coming up in the future, I hope it goes over well. Take some time and enjoy a few of my favorite joints up top...and the video down below:


This is ridiculous...

This is either the inner workings of a secret society pulling strings -- or -- the single biggest moment, maybe, in Hip-Hop history. Jay-Z pulls out all the stops by bringing Oprah to Marcy Projects -- he really amped it up with this one. I promise you, the Blueprint 3 better deliver after this. More pics and the article here.

J. Cole in Philly

The dude, J. Cole -- Roc Nation artist out of Fayetteville, NC -- just had a dope show @ Sneaker Pimps in Philly, PA. Word on the street is that it was so live, the crowd called dude out for an encore! That's a good look. You know, Philly ain't the nicest crowd...word to Donavan McNabb. Peep the vids up top.

Protect ya neck

So...apparently, Joe Buddens said something out the way about a Wu member, they sent 8 dudes to go see him, and homie wound up with a shiner. Tough. Click here for the whole story courtesy of hiphopwired.com.

On the way back to the Queen City. This was an eventful weekend...sometimes its nice to get away even if for a day. Now, back to work I go...
