Starts PROMPTLY at 10 and remember, traffic is gonna be B-A-N-A-N-A-S! so PLEASE leave early.  You don’t wanna be making out with cabbie at midnight.

Anyways…as you prepare for a Fine ’09….here’s a little something to let you remember ’08.

I’ll see you all tonight.

And remember….the Boys at HHHT would really love to see you around for ’09 so TAKE A CAB!

Be safe and wonderful.


1. …to see people like Joe Budden succeed.

To all rappers and true lovers of Hip-Hop, if you’ve had the privilege of following Buddens, you’ll know that he’s serious.

After one big tune and a poorly received debut on Def Jam, Joe seemed destined to travel the path of the Mike Jones’ and Yung Joc’s of the Rap world: one big single and then a career spent trying to regain that success. However, Joe showed his resilience and integrity and accepted the position he was in.  Instead of trying to come back with another Pump It Up, he went left and put out something that HE wanted to put out: the Mood Muzik Mixtape Series. A raw, unrelenting display of pure, unadulterated, good ol’ fashioned Hip-Hop that put Joe amongst the lyrical giants.  It brought Joe back into the eye of both the underground and online hip-hop communities and more importantly, shed his ‘Pump It Up’ skin.

Now, I’m not trying to paint him as the savior or anything like that.  Joe has his weakness, and it’s one he shares with Jadakiss, Kurupt, Canibus, Ras Kass and Eminem:  Excellent rappers who can’t pick beats if their life depended on it. But even still, I’d rather hear a Joe Budden verse on your little brothers Garage Band beat over Mims on a Just Blaze banger.

Anyways…to my point….

….actually I’ll just let Jay Smooth break it down for you.

The Full Joe Budden Response

And Joe Budden doin Joe Budden on Green Lantern’s Invasion(his behavior at the beginning is confusing so watch the whole thing)

3. …to hear more New D’Angelo.

This track is kind of like if you mixed the Brown Sugar songs with the Voodoo sensibilities.  I like.

4. …to Celebrate NEW YEARS EVE at…


Get your shirts ironed and pantaloons pressed.

It’s goin down.


Toniiiiight’s the niiiiiight….

As I sit here getting my Perseus on, preparing for tonight’s Clash of the Titans, I got to thinking about Classic Clashes of the past and thought about re-hashing the good ol’ days.  You know, the ‘Hit’em Up‘s and the ‘Bridge is Over‘s, that goodness that scrunches up your face and gets you all excited to call your like-minded homies so you can get your hip-hop nerd-on but still feel cool cause EVERYONE is into it.

Well…I thought about it, and really, that’s more of a Thursday thing. So today, I bring you some noteworthy clashes of Now (not necessarily music based):

– George W. Bush vs. the U.S.A. (also see: George W. Bush vs. Shoes)

President Bush is not a popular man.  This has been determined.  But, for some reason (perhaps he’s been rockin a little too much Maino) Dubya is dead set on being the Michael Jordan of bad calls until the very second he leaves office.

Rolling Stone recently published this article:

With president-elect Barack Obama already taking command of the financial crisis, it’s tempting to think that regime change in America is a done deal. But if George Bush has his way, the country will be ruled by his slash-and-burn ideology for a long time to come. – click here for full article.

Mike Tyson vs. Food

There ain’t much Iron left.  I miss good Tyson fights.  I really do.

(click pic to see clips from new documentary coming ’09)

– Busta Rhymes/Ron Browz vs. the Arab Community

Busta’s been catching a LOT of heat for his new club wrecker, ‘Arab Money’.   And while he’s gone on to try and clarify/justify his position (not to mention having received a pass from many figures in the Arab-American community for the original), the new remix with T-Pain, Diddy & Akon just got Busta’s pass revoked and shredded.

– Ying Yang Twins vs. Christmas

No, they’re not actually against Christmas.  But it sure feels like it…(btw, this is REAL.)

Anyways, I really could go on and on, but you should probably go get ready for tonight’s show.

I’ll be the one with the Mic and the De La Lows (Check for the Hi’s on NYE).


As predicted by ?uestlove (of the Legendary Roots crew), the blog of ’09 will be Twitter.*

*Editor’s note: I tried to link the video but then realized I forgot where I had seen it (damn A.D.D.) — plus, youtube’s givin me nothin. So you’re gonna have to take my word for it.

Anyways, since I’ve recently been swept in by this Twitter-Coup, I thought I’d try a Twitter Blog without….Twitter-ing? (Is Twitter the new word for ’09?)

HIP HOP WINTER CLASH Tomorrow at V.U.! Sofa Kings, Marcus A, Black Reign and more! Check the thumbys.

NYE GOLD has been ANNOUNCED! Get there EARLY early! And I mean, if you’re coming by cab, aim for 2 hours AHEAD of schedule cause traffic gets RIDICULOUS!!

Dipset….no homo?

Another fantastic version HERE

Marcus A put you on the track a couple weeks ago. Now here’s the Vid:
Jay-Zed – Brooklyn Go HARD (This track is dangerous…HO-LY!)

Twitter is actually just another word for point form.

Peace to CAP X. Strikes alllll day! And this ain’t no Wii bowling neither.

See you tomorrow night.
Triple. – follow me
