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….
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)
Tomorrow (cause chances are we’ll still be in bed)
Peoples. Taichung is in for some serious treats tomorrow night. Apparently there are going to be seranades and stripteases along with the usual HHHT madness. Joey Crack will be in the building also so expect it all to be documented. Taipeiers I would advise you to reach!!!
One of the people on that poster is leaving the island for good to go back to Toronto to run a record label with the other guys cousin. You’ll have to come down to Taichung to find out who that is. Its gonna be Sofa King special.
Light Lounge is the place
HHHT is the crew
Your presence is required
No your computer isn’t slow, Kanye is just a creative ass motherfucker!
See y’all tomorrow

Now that the love has gone, lets get back to business like EPMD. I know Marcus A, got something sick he’s cooking up for release sometime this week or next. The crew, 3H’s followed by a T,(thats us for those who dont know…High Heels and High Tops. HHHT) got Taichung on alert for Saturday February 21st. Its going down again at Light Lounge. Taipei City dont worry, although we’re still recovering from the Tittsworth X HHHT collab that went down during CNY. Evidence is located here and here. We are getting ready to hit you up once again with that good ish. Stay Tuned
Here’s a little something for you to enjoy on your Monday. I know there are a few sneakerheads out here, here’s a little something CBS Sunday Morning did on SneakerHeads. Listen out for the Taipei shoutout at around 6 minutes.
Apparently CBS Sunday Morning has someone cool working there, here’s a little something they did on street artist KAWS.
HHHT6:Light Lounge:Taichung:February 21st
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.
On some Canadian shit. The crew was on some Can-con bizniz last weekend, and having been freshly returned from the T-dot, its only fitting that for this Thursday I re-acquaint you with the elder statesman of Canadian Hip hop. Maestro Fresh Wes.
First album. A classic. Let your backbone slide is still the top selling Canadian hip hop single, and the album Symphony In Effect is the still the top selling hip hop album with 190,000 copies sold. Almost double platinum. Maestro aint no joke. He had solid beats and he could rhyme. He had the dancers and the charisma. Some might say he was Canada’s equilvalent Big Daddy Kane.
Check the videos:
Let Your Backbone Slide. The DOPE STATE jackets were pretty dope.
The 2nd single from that album was ‘Drop The Needle. Maestro came strong.
His 2nd Album was the Black Tie Affair.
Not nearly as good as the first album, but it did have this awesome cut. ‘Conductin Thangs’. I still play this one. Its gets people jumping.
He kinda fell off after this album. He worked with Showbiz & AG (to be discussed on another Thursday) on his next album called ‘Nah dis kid can’t be from Canada’. Wack title. Wack album. I prefer to remember the Maestro of old in all his tuxedo suited glory. Please enjoy.
Now on to whats good.
TONIGHT AT PLUSH
TITTSWORTH BROKE THESE DAYS TOUR!
A word that has many meanings, two of them being: eurphoric or intoxicated on drugs. ‘High’ is the word I often hear club owners and managers in Taipei use to describe how the people should be feeling.
‘Make the people feel high’.
‘Well….give them some weed n-word!’ is often my response.
But I digress, tomorrow (Thursday, January 29) night the HHHT crew will be rocking alongside one of the greats in the party scene, Tittsworth. Hit that link to get to all his pages, myspace, facebook, twitter, press, mixes and naked pics.
Tittsworth mixes fast and plays hard. He will definitely keep yo ass shaking, all night long. The last time he was here in Taipei, he played Roxy Vibe. Yes that Vibe, and the night was teetering on madness the entire time he was on the decks. Its one of the only nights where i’ve seen everyone inside dancing. Musically his sets run from booty to electro, to 80’s, to floor stomping b-more, hip hop, rock and beyond. You will smile. You will dance. You will want more.
He’s just finished an 8 city tour of Australia and Taipei is the first stop on the asian leg of this tour which will see him also stopping in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok and Singapore.
Tomorrow night @ Plush its the first stop of the BROKE THESE DAYS TOUR.
You can download the exclusive BROKE THESE DAYS MIX
Check out the article from last weeks VInyl Word.
and the flyer for the event.
Ladies i didnt forget about you. Come out tomorrow night and i’ll give you a Happy New Year hug and a kiss on the cheek.

This one is called How I like it
Let us know how you like it.
Vodka and Raging Bull
My spidey sense is tingling……somethings going down.
Act like you know.
On to other things. Shouts to everyone who came out this weekend to rock with us. The rep grows bigger with each party and I can’t wait til were rocking in the summer. It was a lovely weekend starting things off in Taipei, representing lovely as usual. The crackatologist named Joey blessed us with the Friday visuals. Here ya go…
We gotta THANK everyone who came out and made HHHT5 in Khaosiung as wild as it was. Furry booted dancers, young and old wilin out(some very old!). Pics soon come. Look out for Volume 6 soon. And those out of town in Taichung and Khaosiung we’re coming back!!!
Wow. Guess who’s bizack. Not that you care really. But i’ll tell you anyways. I travelled to the tundra, aka T.O. several moons ago and came back wiser, well fed and with some new drawz(real talk). HHHTers I will let you know this, our squad is IN THERE.
Musically y’all are dancing and wilin’ out to the same tunes people are wilin’ out to back in the tundra. Of course we’re doing it with more style.
Other than that, I just got back online and am about to put you on to some weekend goodness.

This one is also a going away party for Dan 2 Hands lady. She sailing away to South America. She likes to party. So do her homegirls. KHH is gonna be wild.
I leave you with brand new K-os.
Taichung was off the freakin hook. I mean, glass were breaking, bodies were shakin, no one obeyed the new smoking laws, and general mayhem ensued. As UnAwesome NYE was, 2009 is going to be awesome. Big up to the Swank fellas for dinner, Sway and her birthday crew for coming, my two favorite lesbians, Afrolistics, Rob with the funky hat, and everyone else who came out and turned it out. Light Lounge might just be that spot. If you liked what was happening, then call em. Tell them you want more High Heels. You want Hi-tops. Tell em that you’ve only met Marcus and Sofa Kangs. You want to know what’s good with the rest of the crew. Ask and ye shall recieve Taichung.
Do you enjoy Donnie Hathaway? How about Mos Def? Tanya Stevens? MOP? Santogold? Ron Brownz? Obama? Wu-Tang? Gangstarr? Tribe? Crazy Electro House? Sexy ladies in high heels? Fellas in fresh to death hi-tops? Then get out to see a HHHT show.
Coming soon to a city near you. Taipei (This Friday!!!!!)
And a little surprise for Chinese New Year…TITTSWORTH with the HHHT CREW!!!!! It might be good enough to come back from vacation early for.
And a MPFree blog just wouldn’t be an MPFree blog without some MPFrees? The party that absolutely killed the joint last night in Taichung.
Enjoy your Sunday and check the other website for pics coming soon.
