Not sure what to do on Saturday while you're in NYC? That's a shame because you should already know about this monthly party held by one of NYC's premier DJ crews "The Rub".
Consisting of DJ Ayres, Eleven, and Cosmo Baker, this innovative trio never hesitates to get the party crackin' no matter the hour. When they throw a party, EVERYONE comes through. This is why you should clearly not dissrespect yourself by not attending. Their monthly event is every first Saturday of the month at Southpaw located at 125 5th Ave., Brooklyn, NY. Take any train that gets to Atlantic Ave. in BK and you will be within walking distance. See ya'll there!
So I was browsing the Huffington Post not too long ago and found out some interesting information concerning the republican candidate for the US Sentate position in Connecticut, Linda McMahon.
"The minimum wage now in our country, I think we've set that, so there are a lot of people have benefited from it in our country, but I think we ought to review how much it ought to be, and whether or not we ought to have increases in the minimum wage," McMahon said at a press conference.After the event, "McMahon admitted she didn't know what the current minimum wage is or if any of her employees at World Wrestling Entertainment are paid it," CTNewsJunkie.com reported.

The blowup came during a discussion on Thursday's edition of "Money Rocks"about whether or not to privatize the US Postal Service. Though all of the guests appeared to agree about the issue at hand, several took offense at the comments of GOP strategist Jack Burkman.
Burkman launched the discussion by saying, "most of these guys working in the Post Office should be driving cabs, and I think we should stop importing labor from Nigeria and Ethiopia. That's the skill level."Read the rest of the article courtesy of The Huffington post.

Below is prime evidence of the young'ns having fun and being ABSOLUTELY ridiculous. Clearly biting off of Kriss Kross, Boyz II Men and every other successful group that overlaps their demographic. This video is wonderfully horrible and hilarious. Enjoy the backwards overalls, snap back caps with the tag, the old school cuts.

Ok...so when Juelz and Lil Wayne were saying this they were definitely referencing their unhealthy habits pertaining to substance abuse. Yea...so this poor woman said it too except she was actually using something infinitely healthier.

Google's got a new toy everyone...it's called instant
The service predicts a user's query and modifies the displayed results as more letters are typed into the search box.
The company described it as "search at the speed of thought".
Previously Google's suggested search terms and did not reveal results until the "enter" key was hit or the "search" button was clicked.
Google Instant goes live in the next week and on mobile devices by autumn.

Hahaha, ok so as much as we all enjoy our respective genres of music times do arise when things happen that are simply indefensible. Well...that is what this particular article is all about at Cracked. It is the 15 most baffling boasts in the history of rap. Below is one
The Lyrics: "Gap tooth in your mouth so my dick's got ta fit"
Why We're Baffled:
Has an attempt at slander ever backfired as horribly as this? Not only does Dre indicate that his dick can fit between the wide gap in his target's teeth, but seems to imply that his dick fits between even normally spaced teeth (where the extra gap gives him confidence that it's go to fit)
It's not just that he's implying he has a freakishly small penis, it's that he has to be exaggerating how small his penis is for the purpose of the boast. A penis couldn't function as a penis with a thickness of only a sixteenth of an inch. Even if he had dimensions the other way, like if Dre has a roll of six inch-wide penis tape between his legs, it's just medically impossible.

In acknowledgment of Labor Day, famous filmmaker, Michael Moore, decided that he would compose a letter to Rahm Emanuel. So funny and true that it had to be posted. On top of that, it builds up nicely too with a dash of RFK.
Nonetheless labor unions did create a middle class for the majority (even companies that didn't have unions were forced to pay at or near union wages in order to attract a workforce) and that middle class built a great country and a good life. You see, Rahm, when people earn a fucking good wage, they spend it on stuff, which then creates more good paying jobs, and then the middle class grows fucking big.

As a result of his focus on music and less on his ability to rap, people began to appreciated him a lot more as an artist and didn't really hold him in high regard as a rapper or an emcee. Honestly, I felt the same way until I saw this video. This right here is realest exhibition of talent by a mainstream artist in a long time.
By the way...every emcee is a rapper, but not every rapper is an emcee...Enjoy

This song is by soulful disco producer Nicholas Jaar. The only words I can come up with to describe this song are fresh and tough. Below is more information about the man, as well as a link to this behemoth of a track Come N Get It. If a track could ever sum up everything wonderful and memorable about Beverly Hills Cop and the greater decade that was the 80s...this would be it.

Eta declared a ceasefire today. After all the negative news that's been ejaculating all over TV networks worldwide and the internet, this is good to hear.
Armed Basque separatist group Eta says it will not "carry out armed actions" in its campaign for independence.
It is unclear whether Eta is declaring a permanent or temporary ceasefire.

So...I actually might be posting a new Kanye song every Friday if he keeps going in at this rate. With much pleasure I post Devil in a New Dress. It's a crazy change of pace but definitely for the better. Ghostface would snap this beat in half...that would be a crazy collab over this track. The last time they met up with Ne-Yo on the hook it was magic to my ears. Clearly this isn't the final product so I'll hold my breathe and cross my fingers.
"Put your hands to the constellations / The way you look should be a sin, you my sinsation / I know I'm preaching to the congregation / We love Jesus but you done learned a lot from Satan"
