This reminds me of that Eminem cartoon that came out awhile ago. Dope and twisted! 1982 is out now.

Video: Souls Of Mischief - Won One



Is it me or was this project with Prince Paul disappointing? I'm going to go back and listen again but I came away with not much after being excited about Montezuma's Revenge. Maybe it was the production?

It's basically his statement about the crucifixion over his rants and antics (read: overblown and overexposed). The production, colors and designs are pretty amazing and fun to watch.

A great piece from Meerkat about the Atlantic Yards/Nets Stadium project and how its affecting the Brooklyn community. It's disheartening to see my neighborhood be developed in a way that doesn't consider those who have been there and make up the community. I will always remember you Brooklyn, the way you were.

A nice tribute to Guru. RIP.
