The King Of All Wild Things

I can't wait to see Where The Wild Things Are. As a kid, it was one of my favorite books and I always looked forward to going to my grandma's and reading it with her. It even made me so bold to declare to my grandmother one time, that I would run away, I even had one foot out the front door, but she then convinced me that I shouldn't because there were "bad people" out there. Until the film drops Oct. 16th, this great soundtrack by Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) will hold me over. And if you haven't heard It's Blitz! yet, make sure you pick it up. One of the best albums for 2009.

But Beyonce Had 1 Of The Best Videos Of All Time!

Mike Shinoda Mixtapes

I've got so much respect for the man. I know mash-ups we're done 2-3 years ago, but good mixes aren't. You should listen. And if you're in LA, go see his Glorious Excess exhibit at JANM. Thanks to Murahito for the heads up.

{banner, I think you'd dig this one. Lots of Wu & Mobb Deep incorporated.}

You can get the rest of mixtapes here.

{Breaks it down}

I know it's only been a week, but I haven't felt this way about an album in a long time, especially a hip-hop album. I also know that it is just his debut album and I'm looking forward to seeing how he is going to flip it on the next ones, but I think Kid Cudi is taking music to another plane. In the tradition set by favorites like De La Soul, Beastie Boys, Outkast, Mos Def, Kanye I think Cudi is taking risks and flipping music on it's head. With Man On The Moon, not only do I love the production, but I'm actually getting into the lyrics (which is a rarity for me, ask MPB). Definitely one of the best albums of 2009. I'm looking forward to his HBO series, but also keeping my fingers crossed that he won't be overexposed (a la Kanye). I actually bought the CD...enough said!

More words of wizdom from Ghost. Make sure you pick up Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx 2. For all the ruff rugged heads out there.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug

Here's my Whitney Houston story. I used to work at Universal Studios back in the day and one time, we had to wait to clear out the loading/waiting area of the Back II The Future ride because we were getting a VIP guest. So that means, usually 3 more ride cycles (the people in the ride had to finish, the people in their "lab" rooms had to board, and the people in the waiting area we're the last cycle) before the VIP person could get theirs. The ride is pretty short, if I remember correctly, about 7-8 minutes long. Anyways, Whitney Houston rolls in with her mom, aunt, and niece (I think...all I know is it was Whitney with two older ladies and a young girl). Automatically she starts giving everyone working there attitude about how long they have to wait...about 10-15 minutes. Whitney then goes on to say that we should stop the other people's ride (everyone at BIIF rides together as it is one big movie screen that everyone is watching together), so that her highness could have her ride by herself. Watching this interview makes me sick. She had everything and threw it all away because she's stupid. Her arrogance is still very apparent with how nonchalant she is when she breaks down how they smoked coke with weed to Oprah. She really shows no remorse at all. She gets what she deserves. That's my Whitney story/rant.

I wish they would have one more season of Being Bobby Brown.

Snoop Puppy Pupp

Snoop must have been about 18/19 in this clip. Damn, I'm old. This reminds me of my youth and it's crazy how much of an icon that Snoop has really become. At the same time, it's amazing how irrelevant Arsenio is now. But looking back on it now, Arsenio really can't interview. That interview was way too repetitive. I still see Arsenio from time to time at this sushi restaurant on Ventura Blvd. maybe I should show him these clips to remind him of the good ol' days.

Better Beats Than The Blueprint 3?

Disappointed with the overall production & of the Blueprint 3, wish Jigga would have just kept the Blueprint at one. Maybe Jigga has reached his Peter Principle recently (ie Def Jam). Also think Timbo has hit a wall. Time for his kid (see video) to come up? It's now the time of Wale, Kid Cudi and Drake.
