Archive for January, 2010


It’s a WHOLE NEW YEAR! So I’ve taken a firm stand that everything (well NOT EVERY thing) should, but rather would change. Change is GOOD for the mind, body, and spirit. Some may consider change NOT always GOOD, but rather bad in fact because most people have an undeniable fear of thee unknown. Nonetheless change is the prime catalyst for growth. When I mean growth, I mean in every aspect of the word so when I stumbled upon this theme I jumped at it because It was all that I had imagined in the first place before I had chosen the former layout that was BREAD & Butter.

I hope you all enjoy the NEW look! This is going to be a HUGE year for ME and (HOPEfully) this site as well!
Stay tuned and you WILL NOT be disappointed!


Greg Street Presents Dr. King – The Speeches (Mixtape)

A picture is worth a thousand words.
Wooow… this picture speaks volumes that I can’t even fathom, but I SERIOUSly think that Martin Luther KING Jr. Day should be Martin Luther KING Jr. WEEK!
But then again, what do I know?
(Shrugs shoulders…) I’m just a skinny black kid from BROOKLYN.

Anyhow I came across this post a few days ago on The Smoking Section and found it pretty interesting so of course it deemed a repost by moi especially with my previous post. It’s a mixtape consisting of 3 tracks. The 3 tracks are basically The KING’s speeches over some instrumentals from Dr. Dre’s CLASSIC album: The Chronic.

HAPPY Martin Luther KING Jr. DAY!

Just CLEANed UP, now for an hr or two spent listening to the PROLIFIC & emPOWERing speeches of Martin Luther the KING! I don’t think you people overstand how pivotal of a holiday this is for us NOT ONLY as BLACKS, but minorities as a whole.
I haven’t read ONE HAPPY MLK Day post ALLDAY!
Have we forgotten ALREADY!?
Or are we too busy indulging in the very things we would have never been able to have/enjoy if this martyr didn’t give his life UP for ours!?

A day ON….NOT a DAY OFF”


Lupe Fiasco – I’m Beaming

Ahhhhh! Nothing like some NEW Carrera Lu!
Especially when it’s produced by The Neptunes!
Strange enough, this song had originally leaked a while back and it started this ‘big’ thing where it was pulled and Lupe made a post on his site expressing his distaste  on the matter. However and ironically enough, the GOOD folks over at Atlantic decided let it out!?

(Shrugs shoulders…)

I’m so hypnotized by this DOPE track as I literally can’t stop replaying it.

Late Night with The Roots (Mixtape)

It’s about time! Here comes a compilation of live performance clips from the legendary Roots crew on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night show. They’re predominantly the reason why I even watch the show at all. I’m allured by the fact that Black Thought is usually included as a part of the performances when: A. to replace a feature on the song being performed or B. (shrugs shoulders…) just ’cause. This DOPE joint includes (LIVE) cuts featuring the likes of Clipse, Ludacris, Q-Tip, Mos Def, 50 Cent, Ghostface, Goodie Mob, Black Star, Public Enemy and more!
BIG shouts to 2DBz for the post & 2DBz very own Shake for the DOPE artwork.
