HHHTired,

It’s Father’s day.  And for pops, I’m gonna keep the talking to a minimum.  He likes his quiet.

So while you in Taichung recover from Soul Survivor and we in Toronto recover from a hectic NXNE weekend, I give you some chilled out-ness.

A short film by Tom Mankovsky.  This thing is visually stunning and I can only assume took FOREVER to make.  Please soak this completely in for all its glory.

Sorry I’m Late.

Asher Roth puts it down for his pops and pops’ everywhere.  With this, he has the potential to be to Dads what Pac was to Moms.

Asher Roth – His Dream

And finally, on Friday, the Graffiti world lost their own father figure.  IZ the Wiz, once one of the reigning All City kings of NYC in the 70’s passed away due to kidney failure.  Probably best known for his appearance in Style Wars, IZ  was one of the first guys to try and combine quantity with quality and took mass bombing to a whole other level.  I leave you with his last appearance on camera.

R.I.P. IZ THE WIZ

Happy Baba’s Day.

Be good to yours. I’m bout to go call mine.

Word up.

Im about to take up some of your time if your at work or give you some things to keep you busy if your not at work.

First up, since I missed Manic Mondays, here’s something a little manic to hold you up. Hipsters in Space. ‘Captains Blog…..’
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Since im a little late to catch you for New Release Tuesdays, here’s a little something for ya.
I’ve been hearing alot about this new kid Asher Roth. He’s apparently the frat boys version of Eminem. Sounds a bit like him, but he’s been all over the net and he’s been co-signed by a lot of big names in the scene. He’s got a new album dropping next week on 4/20(haha), called ‘Asleep in the Bread Aisle’. There are more than a couple songs floating around the net. Here are a couple to sink your teeth into.

First one is called Perfectionist featuring Beenie Sigel. Click pic to download.

On this next one he goes right at all the people comparing him to Eminem. ‘As I Em’ featuring Chester French. Click pic.

A man from Staten Island named Raekwon the Chef dropped an album in 1995 called Only Built for Cuban Linx that took walkmans(remember those), CD players, clubs, cars and corners by storm. Heralded as one of the best solo efforts from the Wu camp. That album still gets heavy rotation and is in my top 5 hiphop LP’s of all time. Rae has been working hard on ‘Only Built for Cuban Linx 2’. Word is it might see the light of day this year. Here’s a new track from Rae featuring Busta Rhymes.

Guns and weed. Damn. I like that sticky green shit.

And for the ladies, I just saw got a hold of this new Cassie track, she’s sporting a new ‘do’, and looks like she’s getting ready for some summer madness. I can’t wait.

CAP

As album sales increasingly decline, it seems that official CD releases are following the trend as the next few weeks look barren at best.  All the while, online mixtape downloads seem to be doubling and tripling.  So, as not to combat the grain of the market, I give you a bunch of new DL’s for your listening pleasure.

First up, Jim Jones.

The Dipset Capo definitely knows how to market himself.  Every time he drops a ‘Ballin‘ or a ‘Pop Champagne’, he has the good sense to jump on a Ghostface or Kid Cudi joint and actually hold his own (yes…I said it).  And well, I still can’t tell you why I like him, or why anyone does….perhaps it’s one of those ‘Je ne sais quoi’s (or what Jim lovingly refers to as his[the most overused word in the world right now] swagger) or maybe it’s just time for Pigpen to succeed.  Anyways…here he is once more, this time with Hip-Hop’s Zach Morris, Asher Roth doing a remix of ‘I Love College’.

…Taipei’s Newest Imports

Haha…I still have NO idea how or why DJ Paul and Juicy J were in Taipei on NYE, but I heard they scared the bejeezus out of the crowd and rocked them pretty senseless.  So, hopefully that means more Three6Mafia in the clubs and less Flo Rida. YAAAAY!!!!

Here’re are a couple new tunes from the brains behind Crunk Music….

Three 6 Mafia – DAMN Feat. Project Pat
Three 6 Mafia – They Don’t Like That (Club)

New mixtape ish from Blacksmith Music.

This time Blacksmith CEO, Talib Kweli, long time collaborator, Res, and Toronto indie darling, Graph Nobel have combined to create Idle Worship. No word as to whether there will be an album or if this is just for fun, but here they are debuting over Busta’s ‘How we do it over here’ beat by Dr. Dre.

Finally, if you’re like me, you were bombarded by Loud.com on your myspace and facebook a few months back talking about a competition to be the next Loud signee.

Well, aside from my general reservations of online contests, I also figured there’d be no way I could be among the finalists strictly based on my lack of gangsterific content.  Well, I was wrong….they picked dope lyricists….only problem is that you had to be a semi-celebrity FIRST, to even be considered a finalist (or so it would seem).

Loud has released their contest mixtape featuring the likes of:

  • Jake One : Underground uber producer.  Has worked with everyone from Posdnuous to 50 Cent and had one of the best hip-hop albums of ’08.
  • Brother Ali : Atmosphere labelmate and underground champion
  • Eyedea : Another underground darling, although I think his DJ, DJ Abilities, outshines him like a sun to a candle.
  • Royce Da 5’9″:  You already know about him.

So yeah….check it out…it’s still a good collection of artists, just lacking in the contest department.

KNONAM:  The Loud.com EP

That’s it from me.

The crew will be centralized back in Taipei very soon, so expect more posts from the fellas in the next few weeks.

Triple.
