No More Good Ol' US of A.

According to a Russian professor, the United States will become divided in the year 2010 due to a Civil War that will be caused by "an economic and moral collapse". You can check out the full story, which happens to be very interesting, here. The professor whose name is Igor Panarin even came up with a map which shows what countries the 50 states will become a part of if there were in fact to be a divide. It's kinda crazy.

Soulja Boy Mans Up (Well Kinda).

Soulja Boy recently posted a video on YouTube where he apologizes to the parents of his fans for his recent actions and promises to be a better role model. I'm kinda 50/50 on this. Half of me feels like it could possibly be genuine but the other half believes that it was something one of his PR folks threw at him to read. Check it out for yourself.

Nasty Nasty. Yuck!

I've got a challenge for all my bloggers out there. If you can watch this entire video I will personally come to your humble abode and give you ten dollars. And no, it's not two girls and a cup! Ew.

Koch Records '09 Line-Up.

Here is a list of artists on Koch Records that are dropping records next year:

Havoc - Hidden Files - Jan ‘09

Juelz Santana & Skull Gang Mixtape - Feb ‘09

I-20 - Blood In The Water - Feb ‘09

Slim Thug - Boss Of All Bosses - March ‘09

Bubba Sparxxx - The Impolite Gentleman - March ‘09

Joe Crack & Pistol Pete Present K.A.R. - March ‘09

Alchemist - Chemical Warfare - April ‘09

D-Block - No Security - April ‘09

Joell Ortiz - Free Agent - Summer ‘09

Grafh - The Evolution - TBA

There really isn't anyone on this list that I'm terribly excited to hear from, but there are a few that I'm kind of curious about. Juelz Santa & Skull Gang...hell no, sorry. Havoc, I could maybe possibly kinda give his album a listen, just maybe though. I-20, his voice is really annoying but he's down with Luda and I love my Luda so I might check him out. Slim Thug, I have to say that I am somewhat curious about how his able might sound. Does he have any single's out right now? Anybody? Bubba Sparxxx...pass. Joe Crack & Pistol Pete...pass. Alchemist...been there, done that. That should be the motto for his beats haha. They all sound too similar. D-Block, alright I might check for them when the album drops. Just maybe. Joell Ortiz, his album could have some potential so I'll definitely look out for that. Summer '09 sounds so far away though. Graph...Hmm, I'm somewhat curious about his album. Can we get a release date first though?!

(P.S. I hope no one saw that 'Kock' Records typo :-\ I swear it was a typo)

Tanya Morgan/A-OK Show Wrap-Up.

I had a great time at the Tanya Morgan/A-OK Collective show last night. It was the epitome of a perfect Hip Hop show. Even with all the snow/rain and that dumb broad who you want to knock out because she STAYS bumping in to you it was still a really good time. I didn't get to actually see the headlining act Souls Of Mischief perform because my roommates were ready to bounce. Damn lame's. They're not really Hip Hop heads. This is why I tend to go to Hip Hop shows solo lol. But all the performances I got to see were on point. Kosha Dillz did a nice couple of tracks. I loved the versatility of the A-OK Collective. Tanya Morgan was killing it...Don Will even stripped haha. When I find pics I'll definitely post them.

Last nights show was also one of the last Hip Hop shows to be peformed at the legendary Knitting Factory before they close for a few months and re-open in Williamsburg. I'm not really feeling the move to W-Burg. I've never been a fan of that area. That's hipster territory right there and the trains over there suck. The last Hip Hop show at Knitting Factory takes place on December 19 and will feature performances by Rakim, Black Thought, and more. Woooooah! Can't miss that! It's also an all ages event so all you youngins can come too :-)

I've Got A Grudge With Chelsea Handler.

Someone pointed this out before, but after this interview with Akon I'm starting to see it...The way Chelsea Handler host of "Chelsea Lately" interacts with black men on her show is getting real questionable. It seems like she's always trying to put them down or make them look dumb. I know she's known for her snide remarks and dry humor, but her constant references to the words "you people" is getting to be a little much. I'm just waiting for somebody to shut her down.

Please check out Exhibit A, her interview with Akon...

What Do You Think?

I came across this video late last night via a contact on Twitter. For the most part, I think I'm feeling it. The chick he's talking to in the back of the train kinda scares me, but that's a whole 'nother story :-\

So what do you guy thinks? Is it a keeper...yay or nay?

You have to be available on December 22 and 23, be 21 and over, and a fun person. Sounds easy enough...Unfortunately, I have a jacked up computer, no broadband connection, or webcam so I won't be taking part in any of this although it seems fun.

Killer Mike & Grand Hustle.

Shout out to Killer Mike, one of my favorite rappers, for signing with Grand Hustle Records. Killer Mike's a great artist without Grand Hustle, but I think the move to Grand Hustle will definitely help heighten his career. Here is what Killer Mike told

“Yeah, it’s happening. What I’m most happy about is, man, Tip really came to me respectful of the work I put in. Like, he didn’t come to me like, ‘How can I throw you a bone?’ He came to me like, ‘I see what you got going on. I really like what you [got] going on. I got some questions about what you got going on.’ He asked a few questions. I gave a few answers. And [he] was like, ‘I think I might be able to help with what [you] got going on. How would you feel about it?’”

If you haven't done so already, please check out Killer Mike's album I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II. In my opinion, it's one of the best albums of 2008. Here's a little sampele...(P.S. Does anyone know how you can add audio to Blogger without using YouTube?)

DMX Stays Losing.

Rapper DMX, who was on the run from police after missing his court date, was found today hiding out in the home of producer Scott Storch. Apparently, DMX's whereabouts were given to police by a woman who was probably eager for that $5,000 reward money. With the economy in the toilet and all $5,000 sounds a lot like $500,000 right about now lol. So more power to her.

And as for DMX...I really have no words. First Plaxico, then O.J., and now this?! Come on people, let's get it together.

I REALLY Want To Check This Show Out.

This would be a great "date concert", but umm I have absolutely no problem going solo or with my gal pals :-)

Who's Got Beef?

Apparently Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert and Kanye West do. This has got to be hands down the funniest beef of the year. I think I'm gonna go ahead and take Colbert's side on this one...

Stephen Colbert Wages War With Kanye West

Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, is attempting to humble Chicago rapper Kanye West in a mission Colbert has dubbed "Operation Humble Kanye."

Along with Kanye's recent antics, Colbert seemed somewhat bothered by the fact that Kanye's new album 808's & Heartbreak [click to read] has reached the number one spot on iTunes while Colbert's latest album A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All has only managed to reach the number 15 spot.

Colbert even went on to shoot down Kanye's remarks on being the "voice of this generation."

"With all the auto-tuning on your records, you're barely the voice of your own albums," Colbert explained. "You want to be the voice of a generation? Get in line. It goes me, Obama Girl, the guys - then it's a tie between you and Crocs."

The only response to Colbert's remarks made by Kanye appear on his Twitter page where his headline reads, "Who the fuck is Stephen Colbert?"

808's & Heartbreak was released last Monday and the albums first single, "Love Lockdown" has gone on to sell over 1.3 million downloads on iTunes.

He Did What?!

Unfortunately, my return to the blogosphere has been marred with tales of idiotry (if that's a word).

Todays idiot is Plaxico Burress, wide receiver for the New York Giants. Mr. Burress decided to take his gun with him to a New York City nightclub and ended up accidentally shooting himself in the leg. Yes, he shot himself in the a nightclub. Yes, Plaxico pulled a Cheddar Bob (shout out to Millionaire Max for the hilarious Cheddar Bob reference). Maybe if he shot himself at a more gangster locale, for instance backstage at a M.O.P. show it would have made his situation a little less laughable.

I know it's kind of mean to make fun of his situation and all, but this is how I see get paid millions to do something you love and you have the nerve to do something dumb like bring a gun to a club? WTF. If I was getting paid like that to do what I love better believe I'm gonna be on my A-Game. Now his career is possibly ruined because of one dumb mistake.

But what can you expect from a guy whose name is Plaxico? Sounds like a damn gas station.

Brooklyn (Go Hard).

Feelin' this song a lot...

Ashley Dupre Record Deal? Oh, Hell No!

If you all haven't heard yet, the idiots over at Violator Records have given Ashley Dupre, the call girl involved in the Spitzer (former NY governor) scandal, a record deal. Although this is completely retarded I'm not surprised at all. Actually, I really thought she would have been given her own reality dating show on VH1 or MTV first. Seriously...or a movie on Lifetime.

It really bothers me how much negativity is rewarded. A call girl can get a record deal simply based on the fact that she was involved in one of the biggest scandals of the year, but real artists can hardly get their foot in their door. It's all backwards. And company's like Violator just give right in. I mean, if this is how things are working these days maybe I need to do something shady like shoot someone in the leg to get a magazine gig lol.

Missbehave/Fila Shindig.

Anyone checking this event out on Thursday? I see a lot of free stuff described on the flyer so I may have to check this one out lol. Plus, I kinda like Nina Sky.

Back To Bloggin'.

Shortly, after I started having issues with the adapter and battery to my laptop I ended up having another big issue with my computer. My wireless adapter stopped working :-( And that's pretty much why I haven't been able to blog in so long since my only connection is through Wi-Fi. Right now, I'm borrowing one of my roommates computers and later on I'm dropping my laptop off at the local computer shop to get repaired. That being said, I'll be able to post some blogs today and hopefully I'll have my computer fixed by tomorrow so I can get back to blogging full time!
