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

Rest up, for next week we throw down.
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

Taipei City, they said we didn’t know how to party like rockstars, but on Saturday we showed them…
YES WE CAN!
They said the rain would keep us away and try to dampen our spirits, but again we showed them…
YES WE CAN!
They said the people wont wear high heels and high tops, but ladies and gentlemen we showed them all once again with a resounding bass thump, that….
First off. Thank You. Thank you all for checking back with the blog daily, for spreading the word to all your friends and for helping us kick off the first High Heels and Hi Tops with a bang. There nothing I like more than a packed party with a good vibe of everybody enjoying themselves. And on Saturday we definitely had that. The ladies definitely represented in some fine footwear, and the fellas came out and repped too.
Big fat shouts to our homey Joe Russo, who was taking pics all night.
Shout out to the HHHT squad, we held it down lovely on the music and microphone tip.
We will be doing the next one at a bigger venue so that we can get everybody in next. Apologies if you didn’t get in. We got you next time.
Here’s some kick love to start off the pics.
And just for your enjoyment….Soulja Boy tries to get the mid-shin deep foot out of his mouth…
This is why stars need PR people.
After shouting out slave masters during an interview with BET journalist Touré, Soulja Boy tries to explain his statement, sayin the comment was “blown out of proportion.”
He cited the mock interview the journalist did with Bow Wow and Omarion for the response given.
“Man basically what happened that day, I was at BET filming the last episode of Rap City and then the Touré dude asked me if I wanted to do an interview with him and I said no. I had seen the interview with Bow Wow and Omarion and he was like roasting them or whatever and it turned out to be bad. I was like, I’m straight, I don’t want to do an interview with you. Then, my management was like if he’s good we can do an interview with him…for promotion or whatever…I was just joking. Most of the questions he was asking me wasn’t making no sense. Like, he was asking me how I wanted to die and asking me all these questions so I thought he was joking with me. I didn’t really take it seriously. Basically it was sarcasm that got blown out of proportion.”
The controversial comment came when Touré asked Soulja Boy which historical figure he hated most. The rapper was informed that other artists named Hitler and Osama bin Laden, he chimed in, saying, “Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we’d still be in Africa. We wouldn’t be here to get this ice and tattoos.”
No matter if you are red or blue or green or yellow, you know that today has been a fantastic day. Come out to Copa (YanJi St Lane 137 #2) and celebrate something new in the world. Have a drink to the new president-elect Obama.
DJs-Please bring anything you want to play. We will have open turntables with serato and CDJs, so anyone can come and play songs for CHANGE.
Let’s do it.
