More geeking out

I have to decide which system I wanna get this christmas season, and even though I had said I didn't want a xbox in one of my last few posts I am starting to come around. Regardless of whether or not I choose to purchase the 360 though I will be buying the PS3, sometime in 2007, maybe mid 2007, when the price is down a hundred or so. Plus the graphics for the new Gran Turismo HD are just plain nauseating (by that I mean SICK, the good kind).


Jay's new clothes

Everyone knows Jay-Z loves street wear, from his days of rocking the orchard street 'baller' tees to his more recent parading around in crooks and castles gear, he definetely has a very good taste when it comes to style. Apparently the one and only Jay-Z plans on releasing his own collection of 'street wear' pieces. It will be under his Rocawear clothing label but it generally follows all the rules of a standard street wear start-up, everything is limited edition and many times over priced for the sake of exclusivity. I think its great that Jay has found a new hustle, and I'm sure if he's succesful with this new venture, which you can bet he will be, then other clothing lines will follow suit (can someone say limited edition ecko tees). Its too bad every Rocawear jeans I have bought since, like, EVER have all been crap in the workmanship department, it makes you really value brands such as levis for being so good at what they do.

Just when you thought HipHop was getting too repetitous Cash Money comes and hits us with this. I really wanna know when this video concept was conceived, was it before or after the Complex interview. It had to be after cuz it feels like a direct answer to Nas' HipHop is dead album. Lil Wayne is a f*kin lyrcist hiphop mastermind. If he was gay he'd still be one of the greatest rappers alive today and thats something you can't NOT give him credit for.

Lupe on Aol

Check out Lupe Fiascos performances on Aol Sessions. I can't tell you how distracted I am watching these vids especially when I should be spending my time working on my 8 page paper right now (and I'm only on sentence 3).

Hip Hop is dead (Part 2)

After Weezy's comments on Jay-Z in the Dec/Jan Complex hit the fan there have been many a radio show discussing the young cash money Ceo ever since. I am aware that the status of Hip Hop as an industry is going down the tubes, albums aren't selling as well, rappers are doing more cliche videos just to snap up attention, and the lyrical content of many a rap album has been watered down to sound as much like a britney spears album but with heavy bass and thug imagery. Young Jeezy not too long ago was on the Monie Love show and had some comments on Waynes Complex magazine blabs, most importantly however was when he mentioned Nas' new song and how he(Jeezy) felt about it. Is Hiphop dead? I think it is in a state of crisis.

The hardest riddle on the internet

Notpron, the hardest riddle on the net. I don't know if any of you out there in cyber-land have ever heard of this site but its pretty sick. You go from page to page decivering different riddles. The pages go up to a hundred and thirty nine, and of the 10,000,000+ people that have tried it only 114 have succeeded in finishing it. The riddles are as varied as rewriting the web address backwards, to using morse code to attain the password, and not one riddle is repeated, ever. I just got put on to it and I am right now in stage 13 (or room 13 whatever you like), looking back I can't believe how far I've come. This is one of those things that forces you to think- how do people come up with this stuff?

Check it out here
Really, you'd be amazed how proud you get when you deciver a riddle all by yourself and without having to resort to cheating.

The first trailer for the new halo game coming out exclusively for the 360, aired earlier this week on Monday night football. Its the one and only reason to get an xbox from my point of view, but I still can't see myself getting one.

Just bought a Cadillac

I just heard the song for the first time ever just a minute ago, this is the type of music that rappers never come out with when first getting on the scene and for this to be the first time I saw this dude, Rich Boy, I know for a fact he's gonna be here for a while. This song is straight fire. Throw some D's by Rich Boy!

Hip Hop is Dead [uncensored version]

Kinda reminds you of that the Hundreds tee doesn't it. I can already smell the new nas album. I know he's been talking about going more commerial with his new album, and about how you can only release so many really hood products. I'm definetely respecting his hustle, you know Jay definetely had some influence on his new way of thinking. Hopefully the new nas will still keep putting out classic albums. Nas and Jay, the union of gods, New York is better for it.

Papoose, lupe, and Styles P

Old school rapping, cipher style. You gotta love it. Its been a crazy long week, but thank God I could get a break from all the stress. This is probably well known fact by now but Casino Royale really is the best Bond movie of all time, I'm probably gonna end up seeing it again.
