birdman and lil wayne remixes

much as i hate to admit it, lil wayne is a great rapper. birdman (baby)? not so much. sneakmove ultrapal has put together a couple versions of their hit song "stuntin' like my daddy". the slow one sounds like something from el-p. the fast one is a dancefloor banger.

friday means rap music

"you know. you've got this fantasy in your head about gettin out of the life, and setting the corporate world on it's ear. what the f' you gonna do except hustle..."

ain't it the truth brutha, ain't it the truth.

tuesday next week will see the release of jay-z's newest retirement-ending release. as is par for the jay-hova course, the single is absolutely terrible and the video for it features jay-z, danica patrick, and dale earnhardt junior (side note: who yesterday said that the only way he would win the nascar chase is if everyone else crashed and finished last) racing around in sports cars, hova himself driving a speed boat and splashing a couple of scantily clad broads only to land on a private island with a ridiculous champagne-poppin' party. high concept.

but do i care? do i feel like i need to race out and get the latest underground classic from a group whose highest hopes are to be one of the tracks on the new tony hawk ps3 game (although, how much money in the music biz comes from licensing now)? not really. the new album has some interesting stuff in there to nod your head to while pushing your pt cruiser whip through la, and i think the fella can write. although, they do say that he doesn't write anything down, since, when he was a hustler, you couldnt leave a paper trail, so you had to be able to remember everything. i just hope that when i am 30, i'll make $38 mil.

"i was a real star, complete with real cars. no video ones, you can come and set up a camera, let the video run."

petrol or diesel, i love them

i try my best to be a good environmentalist. i try to recycle as much as possible, car pool when i can. i'm even the advisor to the environmental club at my work. i have to confess though; i do have one guilty un-environmental pleasure, my love for the internal combustion engine. gas or diesel, v4 or v12, i love cars, which brings me to my post. has a new street legal car out called the . it is currently the fastest, most expensive street legal car in production today. the compact w16 has 4 turbochargers and generates 1000hp at the wheels. talking of wheels, the cost for 4 tires? about the same price as new honda civic. and if you can afford the car you probably won't care about the gas prices, 9 city 19 highway and when you're going the top speed of 256mph the car gets an astonishing 4mpg. i really want one.

this next car is also a long stretch from environmental: the winner of this year's was . that's right, a diesel engine. i’m pretty sure their choice wasn't to run it on but it is definitely more economical and required less fill ups during the 24 hour race. i really want one.

For those of you that don't share the love for cars that i have, then hopefully you share some love for madness and driving in my car.

no turning back now. has a brief writeup, with interesting information about how they're documenting the whole process so they can reassemble it when it moves to the new home in las vegas.
The smell is bad enough to test anyone's gag reflex.

Worse than the stench of death, it's a putrid mix of decayed wood, decades-old dust, mold, vomit, sweat, stale beer, rat feces, a million cigarette butts and fruit so rotten that it actually smells slightly sweet.

mr. spears impersonates hip hop legends. it is pretty amazing, actually. he probably is a pretty great rapper when all is said and done, but his is being able to spit like all these other fellas. he did make it into the booth with big tig, on bet, however. i think big tig is a fun rapper to listen to, and sometimes way better in the freestyle booth than his guests. big tig's shark jump? track with r. kelly. i still think he is good and don't mind his nasaly delivery. there are some clips on youtube of tig and ludacris in the booth that looks like one of the funnest hip hop since sessions since

i'm not just being negative here, since it is a beautiful day in san francisco. therefore, check out by K.Hill, produced by khrysis. khrysis sounds like 9th wonder, but it makes sense since both are justus league members out of north carolina. khrysis is the production half of the away team, with sean boog being the half that raps. do it. do it good, and have a fun weekend. happy bday kelly.

friday means rap music

london edition!

i spent the day roaming around soho in london. after checking out hypebeast and other sites for who-knows-how-long, i decided to check out some of the stores that get mentioned for having the "coolest" stuff. i found out it is much like ny/la/sf: a buncha' expensive crap. the worst part is that here, it is two times as much as back in the states. oh, and they have accents. but, then again, to them, i have one, too, so it gets back to the fact that it is just the same 'ol crap. i did find a store that had a good amount of cool stuff, and wasn't crazy expensive. the kid working there had just been over in the states designing footwear at american eagle for the past six months. he said "if i have to design another goddamn flip flop, i'm gonna' go mad. mad." i asked him about how it works with getting nike co-branded deals, since so many come from soho. he was pretty angry, since as a trained footwear designer, he couldn't get any going, and most of the product was designed by people who don't know anything, but just happened to get drunk with a nike rep. sounds about right. i did make it out to the wyld pitch records store and asked around for what was the hot uk hip-hop now. they told me about foreign beggars. an ugly lot, but they seem to be doing really well. see what you think...

"i was jumping across canyons."

Kanye apparently was so disappointed at not winning for Best Video that he crashed the stage Thursday in Copenhagen when the award was being presented to Justice and Simian for "We Are Your Friends."

In a tirade riddled with expletives, Kanye said he should have won the prize for his video "Touch The Sky," because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons."

creative commons' viral video fundraising campaign

as part of annual , cc is becoming the first nonprofit organization to .

cc has uploaded several short videos (which explain cc licenses and talk about how the creative commons project began) to , a video-sharing platform that uses creative commons licenses to help creators .

revver attaches a short ad at the end of each video on its network. when a viewer clicks on the ad, revver splits the resulting ad revenue with the video's creator. usually, it's a 50/50 split, but revver is giving creative commons 100% of the money its videos make through december 31, 2006.

so, watch cc's revverized videos (or help spread them by embedding them on your blog, myspace page, or web site), check out the ads at the end, and help creative commons make some moolah.

2. interesting to see more and more established companies like forbes registering for youtube accounts. cbs has started posting vintage clips of classic shows too. i dig it.
