Open Your Eyes

Soul-n. deeply felt emotion, as conveyed or expressed by a performer or artist.
That's one of the many definitions of soul, which to me is the most important part an artist needs to portray. It's indescribable when an artist possesses that skill, it makes me relate to them more and i enjoy the music ten times better.
It's been a good year and I have heard alotta albums and a handful have left me impressed;
which leads me to still admiring the craft and listening to it.
This past June I missed a flawless album and I'm upset at my self for it but happy that I finally had a chance to catch up with it. This impeccable album is Dwele's "Sketches of A Man." I cannot express how much this album has me going. It's worthless to keep on bragging about it but rather important to just let you know to go buy it and listen for yourself!
Who am I kidding? People don't buy Cd's anymore. Only geeks like me.

J-Dilla Changed My Life.

I have forgotten the love I have for Dilla's music. The passion I shared when I heard my first Dilla track without even knowing it. I would bump some ATCQ and would ask my self: who in the hell makes this beats? Looking in the credits production to only read: The Ummah. I always would wonder.

I'm not certain nor do I remember when the essence of Jay Dee build upon me but I recall hearing Busta Rhyme's "Can't Hold the Torch" and finding out of some guy name J-Dilla produced it. I digged deep in to the Internets layers and was virtually introduced to the genius. That was when I truly fell in love with music. Not hip-hop but music overall.

Jay Dee showed me how to love music. How to not be gender racist with music. I would stay late nights and listen to the genius then would desperately find the sample and be amazed with the pure chops. Jay Dee made gold into...something much greater, more complex, more soulful. Then later I rushed to the the store and bought his whole catalog. Donuts still fucks with my head when I hear it.

To this day I sit and wonder if he was still alive...it's more than music to me. It's a passion, a way of life, it's pure love. Rest in Beats.

P.S.- I love my (ex)girl for giving me the Donuts Vinyl on our anniversary. I say, the dopest gift I've ever received.

I Still Got A Sidekick 1 With A Crack On It...

I put my chips down on 'Ye Tudda. People are speculating and talking but his new single is from the future. Please believe it, that's why I love 'Yeezy because he is from the future...sorta like me.

Love Lockdown is my jam.

This couple of flicks are old but I was hyped over some pictures I saw on the net that inspired me so i decided to edit my old pictures and share them with you. Keep in mind that I wasn't trying but there's something about them that speak to me. ME, ME, and ME. That's all it matters. Enjoy...

The Quilt Is Here!

I just started listening to it about 2 minutes ago. Later on when the album has soaked in I will post a track to track review. Until then...

Damn what happened to the powerful galactic force of the mighty Dipset? I miss them I really do. I use to rep the Dips to the extreme, even walking around shouting out "Dipset bitch!". Those were the days I wanted to be in the Dips. Now once in a blue moon I throw on the slamming classics and miss the quality of the music.

I use to even go as far as fighting for the Byrd Gang, smell me? I would use their slang to the extreme! Repping that Lenox, screaming out: free Zeeky, get at me, Purple City, capo status! I was a fool for the love of the Diplomats. Now they have vanish as a movement musically but I still own their joints and I still bump them once in a while.

Dipset bitch, byrd gang! Smell me?...

Loves It, I Really Do.

Zzzzzz...gees McBush's speech was boring and so contradicting. It really was, I can say so many facts but it's worthless for you racists. One thing I do have to stress is that Obama has experience, twelve years of it. He's had more experience then when Reagan and Bush got elected into office. But anyways that's not the point of this post.

The reason I'm excited is because of these dudes:

and also the Roots. I just got my tickets to their show. The two most consistent live hip-hop bands ever. This is gonna be a hell of a day. But also this Tuesday run for comfort! The Quilt is dropping. I've been feening for this CD, I recommend it. Fuck downloading support! Support! Fuck itunes too, buy the hard copie it's only reasonable to support real artist who live their music.

As I run for comfort this Tuesday to grab my Quilt...
