Stingray


New Fool's Gold track courtesy of A-Trak & Zinc.

They call it Sting Ray, and we call it good and fresh out the oven.

Come to think of it....this does sound like an alarm you might hear in a submarine if a giant stingray attacked Godzilla style.

Dubstep remix was also dropped with Benga.

CMJ 2011: RUN CMJ


Ugh, this is some crappy weather, but today’s showcase with Rocksmith is sure to break more than a couple of necks. STS, King Fantastic, and Dom Kennedy?? Don’t mind if I do attend this appropriately named event.

A little birdie told me a well respected OG from Queensbridge might be rollin through too so um yea…RSVP and I’ll see you there.

CMJ 2011: We Got The Jazz





I'ma be out and about doing what I need to do for this year's CMJ. Last Night I was over at Drom with Brooklyn Bodega for We Got The Jazz where all of the artists showed their asses off.

Below's a pic of the headliner, Kansas City's own, Miles Bonny. Dude is the real deal. Forreal forreal, you should check out his project Lumber Jack Soul. This is also probably one of the dopest titles in a long time.

Fight against Stop-and-Frisk


Past due issue...


Outside City Hall Park, there will be a few speeches. After the demonstration, the students will fan out and visit the offices of City Council members.

They have two purposes.

The first is to protest New York City’s practice of having the police stop and frisk hundreds of thousands of young people, mostly African-Americans and Latinos, an overwhelming majority of whom are charged with nothing.

The second is to do something about it.

Biggie and Yeezy and Lotus...OH MY

Call it what you want...but I think that is Big were still walking the Earth, we might see a product like this come from the critically acclaimed beatsmith and the legendary bedstuy brethren. Shoutout to DJ White Lotus for this one.

Rick Perry's Ties #CMonSon


"Rick Perry, The Apocalypse, and God's Army. Can we get a legit RNC runner who is not tied to crazy. Did McCain ruin that when he sold out and brought Glen Rice's jump off into his campaign?" - Aln Yves

If Governor Rick Perry (R) of Texas runs for president of the United States, he will have one of the most unusual and specific bases for his platform of any candidate in many decades—the spiritual visions of the ancient Hebrew prophet Joel.

Perry has jumped on the “Joel’s Army” bandwagon, claiming in his promotional message for his The Response prayer and fasting event in Houston in August: “Some problems are beyond our power to solve, and according to the Book of Joel, Chapter 2, this historic hour demands a historic response.”

What if Vick were White??


Soo ESPN posted this relatively interesting article written by Touré about Michael Vick, his situation, and if he were white. I don't really agree with the man, but I'll you be your own judge.


All of that is why, to me, Vick seems to have a deeply African-American approach to the game. I'm not saying that a black QB who stands in the pocket ain't playing black. I'm saying Vick's style is so badass, so artistic, so fluid, so flamboyant, so relentless -- so representative of black athletic style -- that if there were a stat for swagger points, Vick would be the No. 1 quarterback in the league by far.

Race is an undeniable and complex element of Vick's story, both because of his style as well as the rarity of black QBs in the NFL.

Donal Trump on the Middle East: "I would take the oil."

Brief Atlantic


So, things haven't been updated as much as they need to be as of late, nonetheless you're still ahead of the curve so keep checking in. This is some realllly dope music from OFWGKTA's afilliate, Frank Ocean.

Fresh sound with unusual content for an R&B dude. Normally you hear about all the emotional stuff behind relationships etc., but Ocean is able to do all of this and more. From the social commentary on "We All Believe" to his heartbroken banger "Swims Good", Frank is able to draw you in hook, line, and sinker, on the first listen with original content. This is something most artists let alone R&B artists suck at as of late. He can do traditional R&B, futuristic and spacey, and alternative as well. Needless to say, this negro is cultured and here to stay.

Bruce Lee's Audition For the Green Hornet

I was never able to get a glimpse into the person Bruce Lee, but this helped. Can't even fathom what he would've been like in HD.

Tatted Up: Toddler 2.0 Edition



You could argue that from the moment that we’re born, we’re exposed to corporate branding. In fact, it is estimated that kids see 40,000 ads per year on TV alone. Australia-born, Pennsylvania-based artist Dietrich Wegner has flipped that idea on its head...

Asian Female MC

Shots at the Grammy Family

You might've heard about Steve Stoute's letter to the NARAS and the Grammys. If not check out the link here. He makes a clear argument about how he feels and what the establishment is doing.

Where I think that the Grammys fail stems from two key sources: (1) over-zealousness to produce a popular show that is at odds with its own system of voting and (2) fundamental disrespect of cultural shifts as being viable and artistic.

Below is also really good post commentary from well respected Jermaine Dupri who was president of the Atlanta Chapter of the organization. ( I didn't even know there were regional chapters)

BK Restaurant Back for the First Time




Long time friend of Gasoline Dream finally has finally brought back home away from home, Brooklyn Star, where they do simple exceptionally. I don't know what it says about me, but out of everything on the menu Kool-Aid is my favorite. Regardless of whether or not you like the tasty beverage, you WILL enjoy the food.

Real Housewives of Civil Rights

"Sign it...by any means necessary" - Betty Shabazz

The ladies of Elite Delta Force 3 re-create our favorite reality TV show alongside Wayne Brady.

That's what she said moment of the day.

If you've (presumably) upset your co-worker in the recent past it's probably a bad idea to set them up with such a gem and expect them not to jump at the opportunity. This reporter snatches the opportunity, THANKS HIM WITH A NOD, continues with her segue, and finally ends with a triumphant smile.

A Duane Reade in Brooklyn with a Beer Bar

Talk about balance...hahaha

When Duane Reade opened a new store a few months ago in Brooklyn, it faced opposition from residents loyal to a local pharmacy. So it decided to include something in the store that the neighborhood did not have: a bar that specializes in beer.

DJ Semtex 10 Min Mix.

Ok...so this 10 min mix is relatively old, but I figured I'd mix things up a bit. DJ Semtex is one of the UK's premiere DJs if not THE premiere one. If you don't know by now consider yourself tardy. This is a little bit of bmore, hip-hop, dubstep, and grime.

Wal-Mart in NYC??




Wal-Mart has launched a full-scale, multifaceted campaign to garner public support for its bid to open stores in New York City.

The company is plastering the city with advertisements and sending out mailers. Wal-Mart also launched a New York-specific website on Monday.
