From Heroes To Zeros

I still think you should learn how to play real instruments first.


Back To School

Red Bull Music Academy (yes, that crack juice). Sort of like an Inside The Actors Studio for music, crazy list of guest lecturers (including the likes of Cut Chemist [where he shares some dope Ethiopian records], M.I.A. [breaks down immigration and about 1:15 in, M.I.A. shares one of her favorite Bollywood dance routines/songs] and countless others.

{CHUCK D FOR PRESIDENT!!! Chuck breaks it down from learning what a break was, why radio sucks, why you should know your history, how the U.S. is full of itself with GREED and how the animals are talkin' sh*t about us. Just watch the whole thing.}

{How Missy dissed Kool Herc, when he cut in the front of the line at James Brown's funeral, how he was a bodyguard for Christina Aguilera & the time when B.I.G. was naked eating a bucket of fried chicken.}

{Just Blaze breaks down flowing in 'Chinese'...about 1:39 into it. Also checkout why Just Blaze might make a club banger, but hates going to clubs.}

{They are all long, but this one is definitely worth watching all the way through. He breaks down the strategy of reinventing The Roots every album, how Scott Storch revitalized Timbaland and Dr. Dre's careers, how Coke saved Common, Dilla as one of the greatest drummers ever, 200+ hours to make D'Angelo's Voodoo, Cody Chesnutt and Death Row Records...just watch it.}

Greg Oden Has Too Much Free Time (So Do I, Worse Ankle Injury Ever)

I hope he's fully recovered from his injury, and not just because he's a great player.

Become a mentor and give a child someone to look up to...because you're a 7-footer.

Hip-Hop Honors Class of 2008

I haven't really dug VH1's Hip-Hop Honors, but last night's show rocked. With a class like Too Short, Slick Rick, Cypress Hill, De La Soul and Naughty By Nature, you better believe it rocked. Here are some of my favorite moments:

{De La Soul's performance. Is it just me or did De La Soul say "Or is it cause we hate this song", instead of "Or is it just my De La Soul"? If so, that's classic De La.}

{De La Soul Tribute: Mos Def, Cee-lo, Estelle, Q-tip, EPMD, Prince Paul & Public Enemy. I also sh*t myself when I heard Chuck D's voice over "Stakes Is High". Just wish he would have had his own verse to kill.}

{Slick Rick Tribute: MC Lyte, Busta Rhymes...and the highlight was Biz Markie and Ghostface doing "La Di Da Di" with the whole crowd singing along."}

{Issac Hayes Tribute: The Roots Band with Mos Def, Estelle, Cee-lo, Scarface & Public Enemy!!!}

Is this a video blog now?

No Justice, No Peace

After watching this, not only do I want to see the movie, I want to go to a show.

Homeboy knows his sh*t. Has interviewed everyone from Ice T to The White Stripes to The Roots and many more and he always flexes his knowledge.




Again, thanks to K-Wyle for these gems.

Twisted up my ankle last night big time. Playin' ball, someone Bruce Bowen'd me.

I still get around in style.
