Sorry, I did it again..

So according to my google analytics there’s someone out there still checkin for this.. Busy as I am, its only right I hit yall with an update.

I’ve been busy as hell with the release of ADHD, which I’m pleased to announce has gotten a great response so far..Shoutout to Kev Knottingham, Rock the Dub, Hip Hop is Read, Bostonianz617, Dotgotit, Pen and Sword, TittyPuncher (yes u read that right), The Leakage, Fresh Hip Hop Music, Thats Major, Bsand3s, and any other blog I might’ve forgot to mention that showed love.

I’ve also been serving as the head of marketing for Scope Urban Apparel and still looking for a day job (I’m not one of those bloggers that makes a living off it).  In any event, its been a long time, and I shouldn’t have left you, without.. blah blah blah yall know the Rakim sh*t.

So, what’s new with me? Same sh*t different day, music, disgruntled twitter rants, and failed relationships. We had a very successful release party for ADHD at Kulturez in Harvard Square.. Since then I’ve pretty much been spending my nights in the studio working on new material, and my days hunting down Hip Hop celebrities to endorse Scope.

Its been fun. Last week, I met Tyler and those crazy Odd Future delinquents at the much publicized “riot” at the Newbury Comics in-store. I also put some new joints out myself.

I can’t guarantee how consistent I’ll be with keeping up with this blog but I will try to keep yall updated as much as possible. Don’t forget I also have a tumblr which I check a lot more often so don’t think I’ve disappeared completely from cyberspace. Just know bein a RapperSlashBlogger is a lot harder than it looks so cut me some slack.

Music to start the year with

2010 was a dope year for new music. The Roots album(s), Kanye’s return, The Black Keys, the rise of Odd Future, Big Boi, NERD, Smoker’s Club, Das Racist, Moe Pope, Bad Rabbits, I could go on for a while.. And though we are only two months deep, so far, it looks like 2011 is off to a real good start as well.. 2 projects in particular have been in heavy rotation and deserve mention..

First and foremost, Kweli’s new joint.. Talb Kweli that is.. The conscious Hip Hop veteran has yet to disappoint and with his latest project, Gutter Rainbows, he proves once again, that it is indeed possible to make positive uplifting music without coming off too preachy. Available for sale on itunes and shit like that.

The second recommendation comes from that wild bunch of hoodlums on the west coast known as the Odd Future Wolf Gang. Journey to the 5th Echelon is a well-crafted masterpiece of production from the Jet Age of Tomorrow. Like all releases from OFWGKTA, this piece is available for free download via the OF Tumblr.

Watch For it… OFWGKTA

It would be irresponsible of me as a blogger not to make mention of these dudes. Think the black version of Insane Clown Posse over Neptunes production, with less clown makeup and more swag. Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All is quickly taking over and might be one of the most interesting acts to hit the scene in a long time. These dudes are either on to something, on something, or both, either way, the shit works!

I first came across OFWGKTA a couple months ago via an interview they [Tyler the Creator, their leader] did with the blog Cool’eh. It was such a well-done interview that, I had to find out more. So I started doing my digging. OFWGKTA is a collective of artists, rappers, producers, and skaters with a growing cult following. Since my initial introduction the crew, I started noticing the name pop up everywhere.. I must admit, I didn’t get it at first..

Shit was disturbing to say the least. Over time, however, I continued to follow these dudes and downloaded more of the music, and now the shit makes perfect sense to me..

These dudes are the Young & the Restless for real. They act it out in a way thats meant to scare the shit out of you but it does make you ask yourself, “How the fuck these kids come up with this shit in the first place?” Thats what makes this shit art! I can’t wait to hear what they got in the works but you can be assured I’ll be keeping a close eye on their tumblr for the latest. You should too..
