HHHT Massive, tonight is gonna be nasty.

Simple & Plain.

We, the pre-pubescent Kings of the Futon, will be taking a lengthy hiatus (due to my return to the great white North on some Weapon X ish) and well this foursome (along with Jheri Curl Chest and Sir Sweat-A-Lot) will be rocking our last show together until we get our Police on (the band not the po) and rock you for a cool half-a-billion.

Until then….come out tonight, cause it’s gonna be heavy like John Tenta vs. Yokozuna.

And just to guide you through the steps for tonight….(**notice** zShare’s been acting weird lately, so if it doesn’t work, the file’ll still be on the other servers)

Pre-party

Blu – Amnesia
Blu – JB’s Gone


Party-Party

T.I. – Better Than This


After-Party

K’Naan feat. Mos Def & Chali2na – America

It’s on.

My life for the past month has been completely and unrelentingly submerged in music.  Blogging, writing, recording, release dates, tour dates, etc.  And as much delight as this would generally bring me, with all the happenings in the world right now, I’m glad I’m surrounded by people who don’t do what I do and keep me in the loop.

Well, today…I’m gonna go watch a news program/read a newspaper/visit a news site and gather the information directly.  And if you haven’t in awhile, you should too.

Anyways…that’s my P.S.A. for the day.

One more for Chris Brown…

…and on with the music.

J. Period – Tribute to Q-Tip: The [Abstract] Best

I’ve been hearing little clips from this for awhile now, but it’s finally out and I like it plenty.  J.Period has compiled into this one little mixtape not only some of Q-Tip‘s most classic verses and tracks but he also includes a gangload of surprises like De La redoing Tribe’s Excursions, as well as Consequence and Kid Cudi doin their own Buggin’ Out.  This is goodness right here.

(49 TRACKS! – click flick)

And since we’re at 49…how bout 1 more track to bring it to a nice round 50.

El Da Sensei (REMEMBER HIM!!???) gettin his Golden Age posse cut on with Mike Zoot and one of the most underrated, style breaking groups of all-time…Organized Konfusion (Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch).

El Da Sensei feat. Organized Konfusion & Mike Zoot – Frontline (click flick)


CAP’s at Copa tomorrow.

Marcus’ in Kaohsiung (Roof Park) Saturday.

HHHT….we got you covered.

GOOD MORNIN’ TAAAAIPEIIII!!!

Quick question, what’s worse?  Video game anger? or Computer anger? Are they the same?

Like, by worse I mean the most infuriating because you can’t actually argue with either and yet, when they’re uncooperative, they manage to stir up more malice and animosity within you than any sibling ever has. Or maybe that’s just me.

All I know is, if I was rich, I’d probably be on my 34th computer right now as the rest lay in a computer graveyard out my top floor window.  But I digress, after having some issues with my internet yesterday, I’m back in full effect with plenty of goodies for this Free-For-All Friday.

You like Wu-Tang?  I like Wu-Tang.  You like GZA?  I also like GZA.  Here’s some GZA.

GZA – Seven Pounds (remix) (click flick)

How bout Jay-Z?  Here’s all his new stuff since American Gangster in one neat little package.

Jay-Z – Prelude to Blueprint 3 (click flick)

And how ’bout Shepard Fairey? The man once known for being behind the Obey campaign is now synonymous with Mr. 44 and change due to his instantly iconic Obama pic — that’s poised to be the next Photobooth default setting next to the Warhol one….(incidentally, I went to the Andy Warhol exhibit here in Taipei yesterday and well….I think I hate him. (click for more)

Anyways…here’s Shepard Fairey talkin bout his Obama flick with Boing Boing.

SOFAKINGLATER is TOMORROW!

Stay tuned for a very special Dilla Birthday post tomorrow.
LEO37.

Shine up your pumps and toothbrush your dunks cause HHHT3 is HERE!

To prepare, I give you some jams that are guaranteed to get your posterior doin the sway as you put on your Saturday Best.

The Godfather of U.K. Grime, leader of Roll Deep and inventor of Eskibeat back with his own brand of hip-house.  Off his newest release See Clear Now.  Perhaps not the genre defining opus his first release was, but a very solid record nonetheless.

WILEY – TURN IT UP

Some new dope from 2 of the worlds foremost authorities on Canibus Sativa, the Cypress Hill General and Heir Gong.

sidenote – if you get a chance to see Jr. Gong live…DO IT!

B-REAL – FIRE feat. DAMIAN ‘JR. GONG’ MARLEY

And finally, some NEW new from ATL’s most recent scene stirrers.  If the Coup, Outkast, Sa-Ra and Big Black Lincoln had a baby, they would be Hollyweerd. (Stay tuned for full mixtape DL on Tuesday.)

HOLLYWEERD – I’M SOUL/FIRST CLASS

That’s it for now.  Got a ton more goodies for you tomorrow…but only if you come out tonight.

Light Lounge.
See you there.
Triple.

Oooooh…we’re soooo close.  I can smell it….and it smells like Deliciousnessess.

Tomorrow IS HHHT3:Taichung Edition…and to prepare, I’ve got a ton more goodies to keep your head bopulatin til tomorrow even’n.

Let us begin with Jumpoff Joe Beezy.

As I previously posted around NYE’ish, I’m a fan of Joe Budden: A smart dude with ridiculous 16’s (although he tends to rock 24’s or 32’s).  He’s been receiving many commends for his recent display of logic and common sense, and well, he’s back with some more…this time kickin it towards DJ Vlad on Shade 45’s Lip Service:

And just for good measure, a tune off Budden’s latest Halfway House. The album’s not great, but this is a nice tune.

Joe Budden – Sidetracked

And well, as anyone on the team can vouch, I’m a large Dilla fan.  And although I’m usually really eager to embrace all Dilla related products, since his passing, there have been a slew of people getting on Dilla beats that I don’t readily assume would have had the opportunity had he not fallen ill.

The following was another potential case.  I’m not Termanology’s biggest fan, and originally wasn’t going to post this, but after a quick run through…the beats are dope, there are some great guestspots and quite frankly, he does a pretty decent job (I guess there’s a reason why he’s Primo co-signed — see previous post). Anyways…some definite Bopulatin on this…nice to have on while you’re workin on stuff….

Click Flick for DL

And finally, in case you wanted to just hear some straight up, dope ass, raw ass Dilla.  I give you some more unreleased ish.  This time, his collabo with (then Roc-A-Fella Freshman) Kanye West.

Click Flick for DL

I’ll see you tomorrow night.

Triple.

HHHT Folk…..

I’m just on my way out the door so I won’t really blab too much.  I’ll just get right to the goodies.

First up….another BLAZING remix from K-Salaam and Beatnik.  This time they absolutely mash the Jackson 5’s ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’.   Oooooh….I like this one.

Click Flick for DL

Next…some more New Old demo stuff from Biggie Biggie Biggie off the upcoming Notorious soundtrack.  What can I say….he was good at what he did. 

Notorious B.I.G. – Love No Hoe (Original Demo)
Notorious B.I.G. – Guaranteed Raw

And finally, DJ Premier’s top 20 Hip-Hop albums of ’08!

The following article is courtesy of Idolator.

Nielsen SoundScan has released its year-end numbers for music sales, and perhaps unsurprisingly, they aren’t all that great—no albums cracked the three-million-sold mark this year, with Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III almost getting there (2.874 million) and every other album in the top 10, um, not. Thanks to SoundScan’s Dec. 31-to-Dec. 28 chart year, the top single was Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love,” (had it remained the original Nov-Nov chart year, Flo-Rida’s ‘Low’ would’ve taken it) which shifted 3.42 million digital singles and bested Wayne’s “Lollipop” by some 260,000 units.

THE GOOD: Perhaps most intriguing to me was the number of latecomers that showed up in the album chart’s top 10: Taylor Swift’s Fearless, released Nov. 11, came in at No. 3; AC/DC’s Black Ice, released Oct. 20, ended the year at No. 5; and Beyoncé’s I Am…Sasha Fierce, which didn’t come out until a week and a half before Thanksgiving, squeaked into the No. 10 spot.
THE BAD: Album sales? Down 14%. Overall album sales, which include “track equivalent albums”? Down 8.5%. But hey, vinyl LP sales were up 89%! Of course the 1.88 million LPs sold represents about .43% of the total album picture, but just think of what this’ll mean for the heightened presence of that Animal Collective vinyl release on Tuesday!
THE WHAAA? Rihanna may have been the top-selling digital tracks artist, selling 9.941 million copies of her various radio-ready hits in single-serving format, but her album sales were nowhere near that, even with the reworking of Good Girl Gone Bad that tacked on the seemingly inescapable “Disturbia” and that Maroon 5 song that went pretty much nowhere. Maybe we can blame Adam Levine for this, since his track was the only “album-only” track on that reissue?
ALBUMS
1. Lil Wayne, Tha Carter III (2.874 million)
2. Coldplay, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2.144 million)
3. Taylor Swift, Fearless (2.112 million)
4. Kid Rock, Rock N Roll Jesus (2.018 million)
5. AC/DC, Black Ice (1.915 million)
6. Taylor Swift (1.597 million)
7. Metallica, Death Magnetic (1.565 million)
8. T.I., Paper Trail (1.522 million)
9. Jack Johnson, Sleep Through the Static (1.492 million)
10. Beyoncé, I Am…Sasha Fierce, (1.459 million)

DIGITAL SONGS
1. Leona Lewis, “Bleeding Love” (3.42 million)
2. Lil Wayne feat. Static Major, “Lollipop” (3.161 million)
3. Flo Rida feat. T-Pain, “Low” (2.979 million)

This is in real time btw

And finally, a preview of the gang load of goodies I’ll be sending your way tomorrow.  STAY TUNED!

Swizz Beatz Feat. Lil Wayne – Up In The Club (Click Flick for DL)

Triple.


Gangstas and Gangsterettes,

I bring you news of G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time) sightings.

First off….something from the most recent person to claim the title of G.O.A.T., Li’l Weezy Wee gettin his Don LaFontaine on for Gatorade’s new ad campaign.  Maybe instead of Sprite, Wayne’ll start mixing his codeine with Gatorade now.

Second…something from Weezy Goldberg’s on-again/off-again Idol (depending on Sizzurp intake) paired with the G.O.A.T. from another world.

I’m a huge fan of both these guys, but this idea is starting to get tired for me.  However, I’ve yet to listen to this so there’s always a chance for dopeness.

Jay-Z vs. Radiohead = Jaydiohead (Click Flick for DL)

…And lastly, the G.O.A.T. argument.

No, it’s not Marcus and I jousting over Dre vs. Dilla, or D’Angelo’s greatness….nono….some pure entertainment as Charles Hamilton, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9″, DJ Enuff and a slew of entourage go at it over who the G.O.A.T. is.

I always loved these arguments.

**BONUS**

SHOW DATES

  • HHHT3: NEXT SATURDAY, Jan. 10th in Taichung @ Light Lounge.
  • HHHT4:  Friday, Jan. 16th in Taipei @ 1981 Bar.

Have a great Saturday people.

TripleSevenBillion.

Well Folk,

I don’t know bout you…but from what I can tell, there are OODLES of people (including 80% of my entourage) just gettin outta bed from Wednesday night. So if you’re lucky/unlucky enough to fall into that category, here’s a bunch of music to veg out too.

First up we have the entire compiled Month of Madness by Roc-A-Fella’s version of Ghostface, Freeway.

If you’re not sure what this is, Freeway set out to write and record a track for everyday during the month of December (Kind of like a compressed version of Crooked I’s Hip Hop Weekly series that he did last year).  Anyways, as tedious as it may seem to go through 32 tracks (no matter WHO the artist is), there are definitely some dope verses and nasty beats on this.  Is it too much….perhaps….but a fun project nonetheless.  It’s like actually getting to see a rapper PRACTICE.  Hopefully this means his next album’ll be Bananas.

From the fine people at OnSmash & IllRoots….Click flick to DL.

…And speaking of Crooked I and practicing….

For the past however many years (especially the past 2 or 3) there’s been a LOT of talk surrounding Dr. Dre’s version of Chinese Democracy, Detox.

Word is that the album features 50, Bishop Lamont, Em, a reunion with Snoop (the last one being Imagine off Snoop’s Blue Carpet Treatment with D’Angelo) and even collabs with DJ Quik (which excites me very much.) And well, as many of us wait to see if the good Dr. can return to the strength of Chronic 2001 (because, yes, no matter what’s happened since I am STILL a fan), here are some unofficial leaks from the album.

*Note none of these songs have Dr. Dre rapping on them, but they have his Verses (a.k.a. the Ghostwriter spitting).

Crack A Bottle Feat. Eminem – The 1st and 3rd verses are ‘Dr. Dre’ verses.

Say Dr. Dre (written by Crooked I) – This is a solo joint (sorry but I don’t have the mpfree for this one).

DJ Quik spillin his guts about Detox.

And finally, a 20 min interview with Dre’s current muse (outside of Em and Snoop of course) Bishop Lamont talking about the record, as well as dissing Game and all that other stuff you gossip folk love.
