It's the Rub

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," reported.

All Black Everything

Chinese police are investigating claims that a security firm colluded with officials to detain protesters in secret prisons, known as "black jails".

Human rights groups say China has hundreds of such jails, and detainees are often subject to abuse - but the Chinese government has repeatedly denied they exist.

Carlos the Jackal (born Ilich Ramírez Sánchez on October 12, 1949(1949-10-12)) is a Venezuelan convicted in France. After several bungled bombings, he achieved notoriety for a 1975 raid on the OPEC headquarters in Vienna, resulting in the deaths of three people. For many years he was among the most wanted international fugitives. He is now serving a life sentence in La Santé Prison[1] in Paris for the murder of two French agents of the DST (counter-intelligence) and an alleged informant[2].

Race and Ethnicity and Maps Oh My!

My left hand woman B put me on to this. It's an interesting and unique look at Race and Ethnicity in these United States of America. Can you tell what city's in this post?

To match his map, Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, Orange is Hispanic, Gray is Other, and each dot is 25 people. Data from Census 2000.

The Real Report

Honestly, Stephen Colbert is so talented that I could never really tell when he's in or out of character. Below is a brief interview with the man himself somewhat out of his realm so to speak. This one made the guy even that much more fascinating.

What about my Ball Sack??

So I was watching videos on college humor of some dude doing a weird front flip (not GD worthy) but then this commercial came up. I found it funny. Oh well

Never Been by Boy Gee Wiz

This joint is late...but it's in heavy rotation over at Gasoline Dream so we figured we'd share. Dope beat, tight yet elusive flow, and some crispy lyrics. If you need that much more than this, you'll never truly be satisfied...with Hip-Hop atleast.

Das Racist

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."

So Sad is the sample

Hmmm...I think this guy sampled Ashanti's voice from Unfoolish. Regardless, this is a decent house track composed by Jacques Greene. He's popularity is rising on a daily basis and I recommend you all start listening now. His EP is set to debut via Lucky Me.

Another Bad Creation Indeed

So in 2010 we have Teach Me How to Dougie, and back then they had a group known as Another Bad Creation. All of these older music "purists" act as if there was no silly/low level music in existence prior to this generation. Don't forget that No Limit Records was huge and Silk the Shocker is not in anyone's top 100 rappers list.

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.

Jealous Girl - Another Bad Creation

I Can't Feel My Face! when Juelz and Lil Wayne were saying this they were definitely referencing their unhealthy habits pertaining to substance abuse. this poor woman said it too except she was actually using something infinitely healthier.

Instant Gratification

Google's got a new toy'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.

15 Most Bragadocious Boasts in that Hippity Hop

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.

A Laborious F You

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.

This is...The Remix

Peeped this late/early. This is a decent remix out of 50 million by James Jeffery. The whole drumming Hip-Hop remixes is kinda tired, but this is done fairly well.

MC means move the crowd

So over the past few years G.O.O.D. Music artist, Kid Cudi, has developed quite the following. His first album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, received pretty enviable reviews, but the crazy thing is that it was noted for almost everything except his rapping.

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.

Ceasfire Announced

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.

Cruella Cruella...DeVILLE

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"

Ice Cream Paint Job

Not exactly applicable, but you get the point. This is the quintessential example of when keepin it real goes wrong...real wrong.

Fab Freestyle for the Grizzly

Funk Flex used to be a respected DJ who broke artists and labels pay him to do so. On top of that he's always growling. I'm saying all of this because I normally wouldn't post a video with Flex's logo all over it, but Fabolous doing his thing as usual but coming with somewhat unforeseen consistency as of late. Let us know what ya'll think.

Sidenote, someone needs to tell Flex to stop growling. It's actually one of the most annoying things about all these people coming up to showcase THEIR talent.

"Woo HOO Car talk!!!!" -Flex - (Just in case we didn't know)

"Coconut ciroc...Cocoaloso / Pretty boy swag, I don't coke my nose though"
