One point that I wish to emphasize here that was mentioned in the Jezebel article concerning this matter is that when one wishes to find out whether or not a certain type of oppression exists, you don't ask the abuser or beneficiary, but rather the abused or target group. Here's the video below

Be on the lookout for his upcoming album with Damian Jr. Gong Marley, Distant Relative.

So here's one pic of the many scans that Nahright got of the BP3 booklet. Just read the verses that Jay is reciting off of the cuff. The second verse of "What We Talkin' About" is actually mind blowing.
Here's the link to the original post
Here's the article...Hip-Hoppers we've got to do better!
"After valiantly fighting, reported Daily News freelancer Walter Dawkins, Shanté had convinced Warner to honor a contractual agreement to "fund her education for life." Warner ended up paying more than $200,000"-Ben Sheffner-

I honestly don't know what I'd do without Discobelle. I had this sort of emptiness in my life until I found it and Baltimore Club. Speaking of Bmore...you should listen to this track. I think this one could do well.
Hater Blockers - Poison Ivry (Feat. Jidoe) (Jonny Blaze Reemix)

My favorite leak so far.
People who are hating on the other songs have to listen closer. The man still has out of this world word play. Listen to Jay like he's teaching an AP class and these other cats are just a real tough teacher in a normal class. You have to dig a little deeper to get the best stuff.
Plus J-Cole is doing his thing.

Friday, the world lost one of the most widely respected turntablists in the game point blank period. A lot people weren't aware of what he accomplished or even who he was. While his untimely death is quite unfortunate, use this as an opportunity to find out more about his craft that he shared with the world, and how much of a beast he really was on the tables and in the business room.
Click here for MTV's article tracking thoughts of him through the eyes of Just Blaze, Stretch Armstrong, Premiere, Khaled, Drama, and Rich Medina.
AM just brought a crazy energy to his parties," Just Blaze agreed. "The way he'd put together the perfect blends of hip-hop, rock, dance and so many other genres is what gave him such a mass appeal. He was one of the few DJs that knew how to cross genres and boundaries without losing the crowd. That's one of the hardest things to do as a DJ. You please one part of the crowd, and then end up losing another. He knew how to keep the energy at 10 for the entire night..."

J. Cole just posted another freestyle via his blog and twitter. I'm posting it, so it's definitely worth a listen. Actually, it's pretty damn good so click on this link now.
"Basic hoes, toss em out / can't even get Waffle House"
SMH...Waffle House is like literally 3 dollars...damn. By the way, they have a twitter account check it out on their website for free coupons.

Chelsea FC, Bodega, and Adidas knocking you all upside the head with this Insanely Intense 3 hit combo that is a very exclusive package at this point. Bodega will be selling this out of its store for $279...a pretty penny, but definitely worth it considering the exclusivity, and the amount of things that come with it. Check it all out here.
Oh Em Gee...J&R's 15th Annual MUSICFEST is this week.
It starts today August 27th and ends Sunday August 30th. Everybody's going to be in town. Some of the artists include Mario, T.O.K., Clipse, Melinda Watts, KRS-1 and Buckshot, and Roy Hargrove! Everyone, this is something you do not want to miss. What a wonderful way to cap off the Free 99 tour of the summer.

I was browsing through Hypem when I stumbled upon Binary Ent.'s blog. They found this Luther Vandross electro joint amongst their myspace friends, and he's a Swedish producer by the name of Odahl. Needless to say, I like it a lot. Otherwise it wouldn't be shared with you and everyone else
The song is a remix of Luther Vandross' "Never Too Much". Luther is the shit, and his silky vocals are always great, but Odahl really builds upon them here
For the original post, click here.
The direct link to the song is right here, so give it a listen!

"The most important figures are 2...9...& 9. In case you haven't figured out what that figure means, that's the price. This version of Playstation 3 will be available at €299, $299 in the United States, and ¥29,980 in Japan..."-Spokesperson-
Actually the most important thing you didn't figure was that we, the consumers, are not stupid. It's probably no coincidence that the further from the Japan it is the higher the price, but I'm still paying the same price in NY as in Cali. Joke's on the left coast and the Europeans I guess...whatever

I know you probably don't know, so it's my duty to make you aware of Mad Decent's annual block party. This event is BANANAS. Free music, food, gifts, and fun. Yes...fun is not always free, but it is when the Mad Decent crew has its block parties in Philly on 12th and Spring Garden. Last year there was a crazy water fight too, so if you want to relive your life as a ToysRus kid, go cop that good Super Soaker.
Furthermore...as the night creeps up on everyone in the Philadelphia area, heads will be migrating to Bass Safari at 941 N. Front St.
Get the tickets for $10 at Sub Division or pay $13 at the door
Tameil, Sega, Flufftronix, Toadally Crossed Out, Dirty South Joe, Gun$ Garcia...and much more will be in the building.
Tonight, August 14th, Mad Decent, The Rub, Fool's Gold and more will be holding a party down in Chinatown. $10 at the door and $7 if you RSVP at Flashing Lights. DJ Ayres and Nick Catchdubs will be playing the tunes, and there will also be other musical performances like the debut of Mad Decent's own Toadally Crossed Out. Good times are about to happen.

Hip-Hop's newest lyrical super group, Slaughterhouse, will be invading NYC tomorrow night at the Canal Room on 285 W Broadway. Their self titled album went up on the shelves today, and packs a fair amount of punch. These dudes are too lyrical, competitive, and big headed to let another man outshine him on a track, and this makes for a fulfilling album that is otherwise very dark, twisted, and cold.

"President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky. And that pretty much sums up the 44th president of the US as he takes a well-earned summer break after just over six months in the world's biggest and toughest job." -- Niall Ferguson of the Financial Times
I can't decide if this just obtuse, or an out of left field analogy that some may construe as being apt. A man that has worked his way from a middle of the road upbringing to POTUS can't be written off as lucky. Should Niall Ferguson be compared to Peter Griffin because he's dumb and white? I think not.
Keith Olbermann gives Sarah Palin the business.
"There is no 'death panel.' There is no judgment based on societal productivity. There is no worthiness test. But there is downright evil, and Ms. Palin, you just served its cause,"
Ok, there was a hiatus, but I'm back for good now...Thanks to Going I can let you know all about the ocho loco deal at 8coupons.com. Timeout NY is giving the public UNLIMITED 88cent vodka cocktails on Wednesday August 12th between 6:30 and 7:30PM.

Ok ok ok...we're basically in the middle of the summer. For whatever reason besides my melanin, I equate the summer with Hip-Hop and Dancehall more than I do at any other point of the year. I'm not exactly sure if that actually means anything, but if you like it as much or if you are simply in a Dancehall & Hip-Hop mood, you might want to check this place out here. No cover, and there will be a recession buster according to going.com. Click on this link right here to RSVP and gully creep your ass all the way to Hooper St.

I'm late as crap with this one, but there's still plenty of fun to be had. Above are the dates for the concert series being held at the McCarren Park Pool in Williamsburg, BK. Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Prince Paul, and Girl Talk are the only names that I recognized on the list, but I'm pretty sure there are many more talented artists in store for the people. If you hit it up, let us know how it went!
Just in case, you did not know...Bryant Park goes IN year round. I can't get enough of their free and very entertaining events. So here's another one...free yoga starting today, July 21st, until August 27th. This event will be held every Tuesday morning at 10AM and every Thursday evening at 6PM.
For those of you who don't know, Bryant park is located on 5th avenue and 40th st. in Manhattan.
I was over at High Snobiety checking out some stuff that peaked my interest when I saw Nixon's new 2009 lines of watches. The watches are looking classic, modern, simple, and clean...and that of course is never a bad thing.

The name's Jahdan, and you probably have heard him most recently on Diplo and Switch's Major Lazer LP, on the song Cash Flow. He's got a mixtape dropping soon entitled, Bazooka Shot, and an album, Buzzrock Warrior. From what I've heard thus far, these two project should be more than solid considering what I have heard. Enjoy Gasoline Dream's first post from the Caribbean!
Here's the direct link
After leaving that Badu mix on repeat for the past month or so, I definitely had to share Uncle Q's Maxwell Mix with everyone. I'm assuming he dropped this to help promote the man and his album, Black Summer's Night. Babies will be made to this music...and if not...many people will simply practice.
So here it is...right from Filthy Speaker Addict

The bad news is...it's been way too long since I've posted here; however, the good news is that I have more than the Pakistani 20 in my wallet that I always carry. Employment and paychecks are two things of which I'm always fond. ANYWAYZ, you all need to check out this group of DJs known as the Rub. It consists of DJs Cosmo Baker, Eleven, and Ayres. Although straight out of NYC, these dudes play rock sets all over the country and world.
This particular mix is a GEM that I thought I lost a while ago, but fortunately found when perusing the library on my old computer. It's all house and bmore mixes that include everyone from Robin Thicke to frat classic Jesse's Girl.
Ok...enough talking...DL one of my favorite mixes here! I guarantee that you won't find it anywhere else since it's 3 years after the fact. Gasoline Dream exclusive I guess.

Ok...so until I started reading this list that Complex compiled, I didn't realize how much of a fan I am of action movies. I've seen a good two-thirds of this movies, and while I do have some discrepancies with the list...for the most part it's on point. I mean...if it weren't I clearly wouldn't be sharing it. Anyways...check it out.
I stumbled upon this scientifically driven article on the Washington Post website. A lot of times we (myself included) think HIV or AIDS is not that close to home, but I do know someone very very close to me who is infected. He is one of 30.8 Million adults living with the virus according to the international AIDS charity, AVERT.
At first Karen Pancheau figured her son Tyler's nasty rash came from friction on the mats at judo class. But when the rash began dissolving layers of flesh, his father took the teenager for tests, which revealed he had HIV. Karen, too, tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, which she'd apparently acquired from a blood transfusion in June 1982 and to which she'd exposed Tyler during childbirth and breast-feeding. Yet as Tyler's HIV slowly progressed to AIDS, Karen remained healthy...

This is a definite departure from the norm at Gasoline Dream, but I figured that might be the reason you could be reading this post now. Sooo...my boy Winslow is baking this chocolate cake over in the Land Down Under as I make this post. Apparently, it's the "Ultimate" chocolate cake. I don't know about all of that...but it looks damn good and could win over some girl's/guy's heart. Click here for the recipe. If you happen to bake it, let us know how it turned out.

Time to take a break from the Hip-Hop being shoved down your throats. The link below is to a song by club/rock group Love & Electrik. I saw the post on discobelle. The song, entitled Sex Video, is a club track that is reminiscent of the days when KTU was that deal playing the old school freestyle tracks. Here it is (direct link).

The actual act of gay sex has just been decriminalized in India. Just goes to show that there are still some pretty far fetched laws out there that for which one can definitely do some hard time...no pun intended.
The ruling overturns a 148-year-old colonial law which describes a same-sex relationship as an "unnatural offence"
Check out the BBC's account of the situation here
The Warm Up
Ok, so I haven't been on my cheap/free grind as of late. As a matter of fact...I haven't been on much of any type of grind except my employment one. Anyhow...from whenever it was posted through tomorrow, SideBar is serving 2 for 1 King of Popsicles. They're margarita popsicles, and you get 2 for $5 while you rock out to MJ without the tom foolery of T-Pain on BET. Choose from original, strawberry, or watermelon...yea. Guess I spoke too soon...whatever...here's the address
118 East 15th St.
New York, NY
Nahright, posted this mixtape not too long ago. I knew some MJ tribute would be coming out whether it be a mix or a mixtape, but I wanted to find something both unique and good. I believe this'll suffice. This is a nice little combination that blends MJ with the world's favorite emcees (the usual top 5). I'm usually not a fan of blends, but once you listen to this, you'll see why the exception was made. Not every track is for you, but I guarantee you'll find something you'll like a lot.

Sorry, for the mini hiatus, but that is what employment does to some people. Anyways, apparently the Supreme Court just recently ruled that White Firefighters out of New Haven, Connecticut were unfairly denied promotions based on the color of their skin. This ruling reversed a decision that Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's Supreme Court nominee, endorsed as an appeals court judge. While it is a victory for many conservatives, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg stated that the men do, "understandably attract this court's sympathy. But they had no vested right to promotion. Nor have other persons received promotions in preference to them." Despite the ruling, what she stated was something very necessary.

So I went to see The Hangover, but ended up seeing Transformers 2. The movie was ok, but it was LONG. I went in at 12:10AM and didn't leave until 3:00AM. Needless to say I fell asleep. Besides the movie being ridiculously violent, I didn't feel any type of way until what chud.com calls "Little Black Sambots" came into the picture. Like the writer of the article says, if anyone is going to make a ridiculous comment that might offend someone, it's me or someone in my circle, but this is just kind of crazy for such a big blockbuster.
This is late, but Complex posted its top 1o albums of '09. Major Lazer, Drake, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and my brother, The Dream, made the cut. Check it out here. For those of you looking for new quality music, this is a good place to start.

Chris Brown just pleaded guilty to one count of assault on Rihanna. Now he's got 5 years probation and six months of community service to complete. Additionally, he is to stay 50 yards away from the pop star and attend classes on domestic violence. Click here for the BBC article concerning the matter.
New beat selection
After 3 mixtapes, 2 albums, and a bunch of guest appearances, their consistency reassures me that this next project will be just as good as the first two. Here's there new track with Mr. West himself, Kinda Like a Big Deal. By the way, he stabbed the track to death.

The US Senate just approved legislation taking away a bunch of control from the tobacco industry. FDA is definitely about to go IN. If they didn't have it out for Obama in the first place, they probably do now...smh
"For the first time, the $89 billion tobacco industry would have to disclose the ingredients in its products. Under the new authority, the FDA could ban the most harmful of the estimated 6,000 chemicals used in cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products." - Lyndsey Layton of the Washington Post-

Apparently, the first individual detained in Guantanamo Bay, Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, has just arrived in the Big Apple. He is scheduled to face a US Civilian trial later today, and claims to not have been knowledgeable of the bombing he's for which he is being held accountable. Check it out here at the BBC. Here's a little bit more info from homelandsecurity.org, and take everything with a grain of salt.

Need a new/different bashment jam for the summer? Play and download this joint from USA 808 over in Israel. I think they have a good idea of how it goes down in the States. Will probably be putting up more stuff from them too.
Ok...so I'm not posting D.O.A. simply because you will be able to find it EVERYwhere else. Apparently Mary J. didn't get the memo; however, I must say if people were using the Autotune sound the same way she does in this song, it wouldn't need a funeral. On another note...Jigga can abolish Autotune but the NAACP can't bury "Nigga"...I'm just sayin...
Anywayz, this song is with Mary J. and Young Flamethrower
Don't know how many Badu fans frequent this page, but here's a "Best Of" to download. I found it at Blentwell thanks to filthyspeakeraddict and Supa Qool DJ Uncle Q. You can go here for the tracklisting or to stream it.
According to the original poster this can be used for any of the following:
Fam & friends BBQ
Mood Music with your boo
Ride or die with your Bonnie or Clyde theme mix
To Unwind after a stressful week
