Let’s face it, in the current day and age, working a demeaning job with horrid pay, moronic co-workers and belittling tasks is inevitable. However, that doesn’t mean you should take it lying down. I think what I really like about the debut video from Top Bananas is his classy spitting in the face of despair. I pretty much dig everything about this video: the art direction, the song itself, the shots of Downtown LA, etc. I also really dig the shout out Bananas gives your favorite rap blog– listen for it!
This post is to let you know that I’m working on a review of Wale’s album Attention Deficit right now, should be up soon. The album is good though, know that. Perhaps even worth paying cash-money for (he’s given you enough free ish already, hasn’t he?). I also wanted to post something where I could use this ridiculous, but awesome, graphic I found; I hope to someday be reincarnated as a mixtape artist. Aside from this graphic, this pic of Wale has been used for the single to “Nike Boots” as well as the cover for The Mixtape About Nothing. It was taken while I was at URB for the cover of their 150th issue, so I always get sentimental when I see it.
Speaking of URB, they just launched their new site, scope it!
Below is–what I think is–the best track on the album “TV in the Radio” which has a guest-verse from K’Naan. Ill.
With Los Angeles’ temps steadily climbing, I really wanted to do some sort of summer-themed post. I began jotting five reasons why you should watch the MLB All-Star Game. However, I quickly realized that there really aren’t too many legitimate reasons to scope the mid-summer classic (the entire Phillies outfield being elected & Tim Lincecum starting for the NL, the exceptions).
Upon scouring the internet for inspiration, I found a collection of videos I wish I compiled. Nonetheless, scope URB’s collection of fantastic BBQ videos.
The old geezers behind the mahogany desks at the cob-webbed old record labels are surely dumbfounded by a few things regarding Wale:
The cooler-than-thou boutiques on Fairfax fall to their knees and jam as many $50 t-shirts into a bag as they can, while making their interns (what kind of retail store has interns) mop the saliva which pours from their mouths. AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
He’s designed a highly sought-after New Era Cap (I’m selling one here). AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
Wale is now dropping his 3rd free mixtape, yet he’s already graced magazine covers and feature stories in pubs like URB, XXL and The Fader. AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
