Charles Hamilton, (a.k.a. Sonic the Hedgehog a.k.a. Jimmy Iovine’s newest muse) has been EVERYWHERE this past year.  From radio, to mixtapes, to every hip hop sites ‘artist of the month’ …this kid is grinding.

But it’s not his grind that impresses me, (cause let’s face it, even Plies has a pretty decent grind game but if you ever catch me playing a Plies track , it’ll either be the greatest song of all time, or John Starks and Patrick Ewing came out of retirement to resurrect my heart ache known as the New York Knicks.) no it’s his RAPPING!  He’s an actual emcee!  A 19 year old, major label signee that ACTUALLY cares (remember that?  Remember when majors used to sign Emcees??).  HE ACTUALLY FREESTYLES (I don’t mean Lil Flip Freestyle, I mean Hieroglyphics freestyle) And luckily (imo), in his own words “[Soulja Boy]’s goal is to make you dance, mine is to make you think.”

Now, truthfully, I wasn’t a big fan of his at first.  I saw him freestyling on Green Lantern’s show and was hugely excited by the fact he was as phenomenal as he was, especially at that age, his content was as thick as his flow which was as nice as his endurance. But let’s be fair, Supernatural’s a phenomenal freestyler too but I have yet to support any of his records.  And up until that point, I had yet to hear a record from him that I actually cared about.

Well, fast forward to now and that’s all changed. I recognize they’re not the most mindblowing tracks ever, but they’re refreshing to me. And that makes’em spin-worthy.

And like any good hype, this wouldn’t be complete without a little beef. And boy do I like this beef….

I don’t know much, but I do know that Japan is crazy. Junko is even crazier:

I wish I could have made it to the 80s night last night, just to request the best commercial of all time. I mean for real…what f’s with that? But that’s not why I’m here today. Instead, it’s the dancehall weekend special. If you work in an office like the rest of those white collar clowns, it’s hard to stay away occasionally. I think that is why they invented BBC Radio. Like ‘Ye and Wayne say, “Amazing..just amazing.” Big ups to Robbo Ranx and Chris Goldfiger as I get into dancehall moods, mostly in the spring, and then I’m just on what is going on. Right now, the big thing is Vybz Kartel going against Mr. Anywaaaaaay, Movado. This is an ill quote from a website about the feud:

“a new feud erupted when Mavado referenced about Vybz Kartel’s belief in God, his preference, and criticizes his tattoos. He also bring back the argument about his skin-bleaching. Vybz Kartel responded by saying Mavado’s skin-bleaching argument is lame, claiming to have sexual activies with Mavado’s mother and says that Mavado is not a gangster but a ‘community barber’.

Don’t go callin me a community barber man. The great this about lyrical wars is that it brings out the beasts within that may have been dormant for the multi-millionaire (see Jay vs Nas). Therefore I bring to you the download of the day, The Advocate Riddim.

So make sure and make it down to the wall tonight. It’s gonna be amazzzzzing with the full force of Black Reign International Sound System and me MASHIN up the dance. I’ve got so much new music that if I started practicing right now, I might not be done till my set starts at 1am. And dress up. The King and the Queen get a prize

Also, the reason I haven’t been as blogging as much as I’d like is that I’ve been in meeting after meeting after meeting after meeting this week. But the plan has worked and Boooooom New Years is OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED! The name and theme is GOLD so watch this space for a MAJOR announcement within the next couple of days. 

That’s almost all. But check out these amazing album re-creations using Legos.
