First Joint: "Amazin" (feat. Young yzeeJ)
Second Track: "Streetlights"
Third Cut: "Tell Everybody That You Know" (feat. Lil enyaW)


If you want my opinion, the first one is pretty OK.  The second one, I could do without.  The third one...ehh...I'm saying "No."  The second and third, I think are missing drums.  You know how "Love Lockdown" was, until the chorus? Yeah...but these lead nowhere.  Weezy sort of pwns Ye on his his own track.  I mean...neither one...sounds great...but he hits the beat a little better.

Reverse graffiti also known as clean tagging, dust tagging or grime writing, is a method of creating graffiti on walls or other surfaces by removing dirt from a surface. It is usually done by removing dirt/dust with the fingertip(s) from windows or other dirty surfaces. Reverse graffiti on windows/glass can be highly visible due to the reflection of sunlight. Due to the lack of paint it is often considered legal and used for Advertising,with companies such as Microsoft and Smirnoff, have had their products advertised this way. ~ Courtesy of Wikipedia

The name of the joint is "naM redaelgniR", and...it's nice.  I actually haven't heard anything bad from this guy lately.  I think this is the intro for the album; it kind of sets the stage for him to do his thing on the album, cohesively titled Thr33 Ringz. In less than three minutes, he embraces his weirdness, and claims to have the industry by the knickers.  The synths in the beat sound like calliopes, and the entire song is in 3/4 time, so...it actually does sound like circus music. 4/5 on the Shrug Scale.  Click the pic.

Nas (feat. The Game & Chris Brown) - "Make the World Go Round"

Hey, it's Illa J.

Oh, you don't know who he is? That's a probble for you, especially if you consider yourself a Dilla fan. Yeah...major probble.

Illa J's J Dilla's younger bro. [Notice the vernacular similarities.] He produces, raps, and sings a little.

Well, in any event, Illa J's debut album, Yancey Boys, has leaked into the blogosphere. The album is made entirely from previously unreleased Dilla tracks [hence the title, Yancey Boys {peep Illa J's right eye}]. It's pretty chill as a whole, making for good nighttime riding [read: weed smoking] music. Peep the track listing:

01. Timeless 03:11
02. We Here 04:10
03. R U Listenin'? (feat. Guilty Simpson) 04:20
04. Alien Family (By Frank Nitty) 02:18
05. Strugglin' 03:23
06. Showtime 03:45
07. Swagger 03:33
08. Mr. Shakes (a.k.a. Affion Crockett) (Skit) 00:44
09. DFTF (feat. Affion Crockett) 04:24
10. All Good 03:05
11. Sounds Like Love (feat. Debi Nova) 03:25
12. Everytime 04:32
13. Illasoul 03:48
14. Air Signs 03:26

Alright, you know the routine: click the pic, jack the track.

Have you listened? Good. Now...where's that sample from?


Damn YouTube slideshows...

Oh...give the brother some.

So...I DIDN'T watch the BET Awards...

But I'd've killed myself if I missed these:









With a little HTML ingenuity, I was able to put the audio links right in the code, as you can see. Enjoy. Cypher 3 was the best one, in which I'd give it to Jada. Close call, though; even Ace Hood held his own. Peep Q-Tip's verse, too.
