I apologize for my recent Twitter‘esque posts but time has not been on my side lately. However, I’m doing the best I can to get these wicked tunes out to you so bare with me as I learn the ancient art of time management.
Dam Funk is the shit.
The L.A. beatmonster is back again with some treats for the kiddies. Who’s effin’ with Stones Throw?!
CRISTAL ON THE MOON
I just met Corinne for the first time 2 days ago (not personally but sonically), and I feel good about it.
I hope to learn more about her and have something to actually write about next time I post on her. In the meantime, she’s dope.
One of, I believe, 3 or 4 tracks that didn’t make the Ecstatic. Album of the year. Artist of the decade. That’s my word.
And just for good measure, new Sade.
SATISFICATION ENDS TONIGHT! See you there Taipei.
Be well world.
In the past 6 years, there have been few other producers/DJ’s who’ve accomplished more than Florida (or Philadelphia, depending on who you ask) native, Diplo.
From hit singles with ex-muse M.I.A. to the success of his own record label, Mad Decent all the way down to becoming the remix darling of damn near every major label and their subsidiaries, Diplo‘s ruining faces and doin it with an almost unparalleled consistency. Combining his love of Baile Funk with damn near every other genre out, like him or not, Diplo has somehow managed to carve out a place for himself that is both unique and exciting and for that, I have nothing but respect.
Now, thanks to HHHT general Marcus Aurelius, Diplo will be finding his way to Taipei for a one night extravaganza and I sincerely insist your attendance. It’s rare that Taiwan gets someone of this caliber, and the chances of a return may be slim unless we ram the place. So Taiwan, book off your Friday, shine up your shoes, and let’s do this. And just to get you excited….some brand new free dope from the man himself.
I AIN’T TALKIN ORENTHAL OR GENE SIMMONS
Madlib and Guilty are back with some new ish. I can’t wait for this shit to finally drop.
LET THERE BE HORNS
And finally, the homeboy RJD2 is gearing up the promo for his brand new record, The Colossus, and I can only imagine you’ll be catching a lot more of his ish here on HHHT.
The first official single off the new record….enjoy.
RJD2 – LET THERE BE HORNS
It’s a good day, let’s get grimy.
Be well world.
To say its been a minute would be an understatement. I’ve been selfish these last few weeks, not sharing any goodies with the HHHT squad. To tell you the truth, I’ve been SERIOUSLY uninspired by music that is coming out and music that is being played out in clubs. If you want to know what I’ve been listening to, its been Drake’s ‘So Far Gone’ Mixtape/LP and soul music. That’s been my inspiration. So Far Gone is a couple months old but it still hits like the freshest shit my ears have been blessed with. Great rhymes spit with style and the right touch of swag. And Soul music is just timeless and makes me smile. Nothing better than listening to some good soul tunes on a chill day.
I know I haven’t been up on the blog for a bit. My homey Triple has been holding it down like Bundy with the 5 count. Good looks and salutes from across the pond thun. PPF I see you. HHHT’ers lets inject some anarchy into a lifeless system. I’m open to suggestions.
On to joints.
I love this pic because Michael looks like the one with the most swagger, next to the Big Dog Joe in the back of course. A leg up and a little attitude. Who knew then, that kid would turn into a fucking weirdo??
Its Great To Be Here – Jackson 5 (click pic)
Next up my homey, the Reverend Al Green. This guy had amazing hair and an amazing voice to go with it. Fans of hiphop should recognize the opening drums.
Al Green – Im So Glad Your Mine (click pic)
This one is dedicated to Triple for all his hard work these past couple weeks. Tim Hortons thun! (Inside joke for my Canadians)
This last one is for the ladies. There’s a big surprise in the middle of this one. (I bet you thought it was all Alicia.wink)
Enjoy your Sunday.
More Treats to Come
As I sit here still in sub zero weather (It’s the effin end of March — What the hell!?), I can only dream about the beauty that is Taiwanese Spring: Hot, but not too hot. Shorts for the boys, panty sized denim for the girls. Xue Hua Bing and 7-11 crawls. It truly is Waakao!
And while I have to unfortunately miss out on all the goodness my oral and ocular cavities would be exposed too (not to mention HHHT’s 7 AND 8 AND Soul Food Fridays — Damn Homie) I take comfort in the fact that the crew continues to demolish your calves and shins with the very best.
So, to ensure everyone’s getting their daily dose of goodies, here’s another small stockpile to tide you over.
Ghostface & Doom (f.k.a. MF Doom f.k.a. Zev Love X) – Chinatown Wars
And simply….dopeness from Mos — I was waitin for this.
Finally, some potential for dopeness (and even bigger potential for garbage), N.W.A. might be getting silver screen love. Check it:
“Rap is finally getting the Ray treatment. New Line is developing Straight Outta Compton, an urban drama about N.W.A. (a.k.a. N-ggaz With Attitude), the hip hop group that helped pioneer the gangsta rap movement in the ’80s and early ’90s. The project will chronicle the rise and fall of the rap quartet, founded by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and MC Ren, whose songs were so incendiary (i.e. “F— tha Police”) they were banned from radio playlists but still sold millions of albums. Then came the inevitable fiery breakup, a grudge match between the former bandmates, and Eazy-E’s tragic death due to AIDS. The film’s producers, which include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Tomica Wright (Eazy-E’s widow), and Circle of Confusion entertainment, are now actively searching for a director along the lines of Curtis Hanson (8 Mile).”
Rest people. We get it in.
In case you didnt know, im putting the whole city on alert. Its OFFICIALLY HUSTLE SEASON! I been talking to people and everyone is on some serious grind shit right now. I know people working on clothing, music, websites, flyers, parties, retail ventures, tours. If this keeps up and everyone stays on their grizzly it should be a good spring/summer season.
Here are some goods for your Friday reading pleasure.
Somebody at format mag did their mutha’f’n homework. If you got some time today, go through this post. Im cool with a lot of the pics, but i think there definitely should be some more Outkast in that list, and Ludacris(he’s made some hilarious videos)
Speaking of videos, im not a huge Kid Cudi fan, but I am a fan of eye Candy, and there’s some serious eye candy in this vid, i believe they’re called the Beautiful Warriors. KC aint even in the video, its not the Official video, but its so official.
Kid Cudi feat. Beautiful Warriors – Super Boo
You like Soul Music?

I love this song.
If you like this come down tonight.
Enjoy your Friday mofo’s
Rest up, for next week we throw down.
Going from the +25c that we were experiencing in Taipei last week when I left, to the -15c (w/o windchill…) here in Toronto, let’s just say, a 40 degree turnaround is not kind to the body. But alas, it’s nice to be back, and even nicer to be busy.
Myself and some of the boys from the House (Magnolius backed by the WPBE), have the privilege of opening for blog darlings N.A.S.A. tomorrow at the El Mocambo here in Toronto and if you don’t know who they are, here’s the second single off their highly anticipated debut featuring a virtual who’s who of the international industry both past and present. For more details on the show, click here.
N.A.S.A. feat. RZA, Barbie Hatch & John Frusciante – Way Down
And the first single they released a few months back with another jumble of artists from the history of the business.
N.A.S.A. feat. David Byrne, Chuck D., Ras Congo, Seu Jorge & Z-Trip
Finally, as you know, HHHT 7&8 are on the horizon, and based solely on the flyer (scroll down), the proverbial ish is bout to hit the fan. So get your tights on, lace up your luchador masks and get ta’ droppin’em ‘bows!
Some rideout music from the ever flamboyant, Camp Lo.
Camp Lo – Regulate (feat. Yahzarah) click flick.
LEO37 is my name.
And bein gangsterific is my game.
Be easy world.
Yeah its a rainy saturday in Taipei City. Im still laughing my ass off about our new flyer. Its gold. Absolutely brilliant. Glimpses of Genius even. Scroll down if you havent seen it yet.
Here is some very random news from Internet Land. Michael Jackson, the king of pop just announced his final concerts in tne UK in July. This guy has been through so much in the press, that its amazing to see how loyal his real fans still are. They are people near tears in the crowd because they got a chance to see their idol. Im willing to bet my next few months salary that he puts on a fucking amazing show.
On to other amazing things. Watch this video. This guy survives, by some form of miracle, getting hit by a truck that was hit by a train. Incredible.
Fucking incredible right?!
And I just came across this new Young Jeezy video, ‘Circulate’. Its directed by Terry Richardson who is one of those hipster photographers that all the hipster kids love. He’s shot for Vice and American Apparel, Staple, etc, etc. The song is produced by Don Cannon and im loving the horn blasts. Its some good morning music.
Here’s a little Saturday rainy day bonus for y’all.
The Dramatics – In the rain
Hit the gym beeches, HHHT weekend is coming up.
Shuffle b-word shuffle
Ladies and Gentlemen…
Life is good. Here’s part 2 of the evidence (once again, courtesy Joe Russo):
And being Thursday ‘n all…lemme hit you with some classic ish.
If you’re rollin in a Caddy: UGK – Da Game Been Good To Me (click flick.)
It’s Thursday folk….go get it.
And as promised…after a bout of Food poisoning, a residual migraine and an evening of cold sweats, I proudly present Part 1 of Joey ‘CRACK’ Russo’s: HHHT6!
As you can tell from this first set of photos, the evening was nutty. A big shout out and thanks to Light Lounge and everyone who came and showed their love for the HHHT Conglomerate. Even though the numbers are diminished, rest assured, the parties will continue to be demolished and daughters all over the island will be in jeopardy of finding Love in a Club.
And well….since it’s Ladies Night, how bout a couple o’ treats…
Y’know B.O.M.B.’s coming out soon cause Busta’s dropping tracks every week. Here’s another potential single for the man. This time he brought his boys T.I.P. and Akon wit’em.
Busta Rhymes Feat. T.I. & Akon – Number One (click flick)
And one from a potential star in the making…Amanda Diva. Although she briefly acted as Natalie Stewarts‘ replacement in Floetry, most of you probably first heard her on Q-Tip‘s latest single, Manwomanboogie. Well, I just snaked this new tune from her in case you were wonderin what her solo stuff sounded like.
Amanda Diva Feat. Johnny Polygon – Neon
I’m goin out singing….
