All HHHT Massive and crew.
It has been more than a minute. A big super-strong-stupid-phat shout out to my man LEO37. Quite a massive individual who has been single-handedly holding down the posts for the last 6 months or so. Im gonna stop before this starts sounding like a man-crush. Anyways, I’m jumping back in, so me and Triple can give you that one-two punch of musical treats for all the good childrens.
Here’s a little something from everyone’s favorite clan member.

Mad love Triple. Safe Travels.
HighHeelsandHiTops – 11 Coming soon Victoria.
Go get you some.
Here goes the bonus 45 with the album.
New school galore hey? First Theophilus, then Curren$y and now, the highly touted Mr. Cole.
I don’t know about J. Cole yet. Like unquestionably, this guy can rap, I won’t deny that. But already, this early on in his career, I find myself glazing over when I hear him rap. His content along with cats like Big Sean, XV, Drake so on and so forth all make me hate the youth of today and just makes me go throw the Ecstatic back in rotation just to cleanse my mind.
Anyway, here goes his first official single. Thoughts?
Now before I start getting hate for not supporting the new school, I’m still an enormous fan of Blu, I’m diggin on the homie below and there’s of course Curren$y.
I can’t quite put my finger on it yet, but this guy is dope. The way he carries himself, his delivery, his writing, if he continues down this path he could totally end up being in a class alongside Mos, Kweli, Common, etc. Hell, he’s already in a group with Mos and Jay Electronica (remember Center Edge Territory?…when the hell is that shit coming out!!)
Anyway, some new dopeness from Spitta produced by BluRoc (a.k.a. Ski Beatz). Get live.
I gotta be honest, of this new school of rappers, Wale, Cool Kids, Pac Div, etc., etc. I’m really not feeling any of’em. I’m not saying they’re bad, but none of them inspire me to listen past the first track of anything and don’t take that as me not trying either. Trust me, I have. I’ve listened through a ton of their stuff, and still……nothin.
But with Theophilus London, I get drawn in. No not all his songs are dope but at least he gives me something different to work with. Inspired production. Interesting cadences. Melodies and vamps. Odd changes. This guy is serious. I support this man and I believe you all should too.
Off his upcoming record, check it out:
I really don’t need to say anything. Snagged from 2DBz, Primo‘s tribute to Guru.
Let the music speak for itself.

Someone once came up to me after a show and said “We’re lucky, to have Scarface music in our lives.”
Don’t get it twisted, I’m not a die hard Scarface fan and I didn’t grow up on the Geto Boys, but for everything Uncle Face has contributed, for always making sure his lyrics were correct and for always just, for a lack of a better term, being a real ass dude, we are lucky and we need to stop takin the man for granted.
With some new hotness off his first EVER official mixtape, HHHT is proud to give you some of that good good.
Since I received my promo copy of ‘In Search of…’ in early 2002, I’ve been an enormous fan of N*E*R*D*. Their decision to take what was already a good grouping of beats (unlike their ‘Clones’ showing) and replay them with live instruments only proved to strengthen their musical ideas and ultimately, gave them the freedom to genre jump with ease.
Being a DJ myself, with each album I’ve found that there’s always at least one song that you can play anytime, anywhere, no matter the circumstance because it’s just that good and I know there are a ton of haters out there who’d wanna contest that Pharrell and Chad aren’t really the most technically gifted musicians, and for that you’d be absolutely correct. Yes, many of their chord progressions are the same, and sure many of their songs end up fitting the same formula, but dammit if it isn’t just lovely to listen to regardless. Candy for the ears.
Now, after 3 albums of what I consider to be a clear demonstration of growth, work and imagination, N*E*R*D* will be re-entering the public eye with their 4th album Nothing, and we’ve got a couple chunes right here for you to absorb.
Are you a N*E*R*D*? Hit me up.
