Here is a piece I just finished. I think it’s a cool piece, and its funny that it started as an unwanted visual. I’m glad I never throw anything away.
I know this isn’t a current hit but I don’t listen to the radio that much, so I decided to dig into my archives for a sample I felt worthy to share. I give you one that might bring back memories. Good Times was the first single by Styles P off his debut album A Gangster and a Gentleman. It was produced by Saint Denson and Swizz Beatz. I had to search but this was in my early hunting days. Check out what I found.
The official video wasn’t available however this is a good mix of the two.
Freda Payne – I get high (On your memory) MURDER!!
Can you dig it?
As an artist I always seem to search for other artist whose style inspire my own. On FFFFound.com I stumbled across an artist names Benjamin Gudel. His work has a unique comic like style, which happens to work out since he has been known to do underground comics. The works was dope check a few samples I dug and make sure to follow the link to his site. DOPENESS!!!
My favorite thing about this guys work is the use of real color through layer effects rather than attempting to make it look realistic. I really dig it.
My oh my, poor Charles Hamilton, you just can’t catch a break can you. Check out the latest Internet embarrassment.
UPDATE!! The one hitter quitter Bri speaks. The aftermath of the video shown above.
I think this dude might need to find another career choice. Hip hop in general does not embrace soft artists, and I do give him credit for not acting out on being STOLE on!! You figure it out Chuck.
Every Saturday morning I would will until 10’clock for Transformers to come on, and like every little boy I rooted for the good guys. Optimus Prime the big rig, BumbleBee the VW Bug NOT Camero! I imagined being one of the autobots when we would act out any given episode later on that day with the rest of the fellows. I was on the side of good, but for some reason the allure of the sharp deceptacon logo intrigued me. When it came to the toys I loved acquiring the villains because frankly they always had better stuff. Megatron was a GUN!! And Soundwave had cassette tape Minions. Laserbeak, Rumble, and of course RAVAGE! To hear ravage said in that cool robot voice was and still is DOPE!
Now we can have that power ourselves in the form of a jump drive. It even transforms. HOW SWEET IS THAT??
But it HERE
From the same creative vision as 2002 acclaimed City of God we have City of Men (Cidade dos Homens). I am Chilly Coldblud and these are my Deepthoughts…
What does Chilli Think of City of Men?
CITY OF MEN!!! The word that comes from the outreaches of space, beyond the reaches of names, beyond the echoes of thought directly to me to describe this slice of cinematic history is REAL! DIG IT! REAL! The grittiness of the photography places you directly into the favala’s of Rio. The REAL Rio, nothing like the robot race on those born into a resort. In simple ground-mind terms “I enjoyed it”. The movie continues the story of Acerola and Laranjinha childhood friends from the Brazilian series “City of Men”. A lot of movie watchers might think this is a sequel to City of God but its not. But you’re not too far off. This story began with the series, one I can describe as The Wonder Years meets Menace to Society. If you get a chance check that out too. The story is compelling, the acting is memorable, and the photography is crisp. It is subtitled but there is nothing wrong with reading. Feed your brain. I give it 4 1/2 out of 5 funky monkeys.
You figure it out.
You know the name! Mr. James Yancey, the late GREAT J DILLA. Here is a sample of the upcoming post mortem release.
Dilla was a genius in the best sense of the word, able to create beats from any sound imaginable. Lots of fans jumped on Dilla with the release of his Donuts LP (2006), which is a wonderful thing, but for those who have followed his career from Slum Village to Jaylib collaborations there is a certain excitement that comes with news of another J Dilla Album. Wondering what version of the Dilla sound you might hear, will it be the tarika blue influence or the gritty eastside Conant Garden sound. Why wonder check out the sample.
J Dilla’s Jay Stay Paid drops June 2nd. Executive Produced by Ma Dukes.

RICK “FALSE”. What can I say? With his much-hyped beef with 50 we all believed it was over for Officer Ricky. However the consumer is very forgiving and good music trumps beef any day. Rick Ross has emerged the victor. Now the pressure is on you Curtis. Will you deliver the ANGRY 50 that we used to enjoy on Get Rich or Die Trying? Never the less every time we turn on the radio we are sure to hear Magnificent By Rick Ross featuring John Legend, produced my the Justus league. Radio slaves will be the first to tell you it’s all about the beat, but when I listened I found something familiar.
or is it
