So my man D Solo proved he’s got more use than hooking up Kidz in the Hall material haha. Oh boy, Hip Hop is gonna feel the wrath of this one, bet. Laterian Milton’s gutter’ness is better than 95% of the rappers out’s gutter’ness.
Just a little bit, no video games for a whole weekend.
I was going to make a post about The Roots regardless if I had anything new to add (I do, so it’s a bonus) just to tell ya’ll to cop Rising Down which is in stores today! The Roots had a pretty intense day yesterday. From a performance on Letterman with Wale and Chrisette Michele to a jam session on Green Lantern’s Hip Hop Nation Radio show to their release party at Sutra in NYC (check OKP for the full break down, with pictures and all). This post consists of the GL appearance. Shouts to my dude Shamz who was in the building!
Brand new heat from The Game. Yes, I mean it… dude goes in on this. I really enjoy the vibe. He pulled it off well. In response to the Sean Bell verdict (seeing a lot of these). L.A.X. in stores July 8th.

Man I love how artists like this can still pump out dope records years upon years upon years after they came out. Check for this on Craig G & Marley Marl’s upcoming album Operation Take Back Hip-Hop. Dropping June 17th.
As I was getting together a fresh What’s in the Tapedeck (Mixtape Edition) I got this in my inbox. Rather than waiting a day and grouping it with rest I felt this deserved it’s own post. You mad? Of course not. Who would be mad at a dope mix of 3stacks’ music?
As I’ve spoke on in previous posts, my most recent trip to Cali was both business and pleasure. This counts as both really. I interviewed Crooked I for HipHopDX but I also got to kick it with the man (and Mickey too… what up?) as well as listen to his upcoming single with Akon (which is pretty dope). I also asked him about his issues with DMX (listen to week 2, you’ll know). So sit back and watch part one of our (Meka was in the room too) interview. This part focuses on his Hip Hop Weekly Series (from the creation to his favorites). He even suggests bringing it back if something happens. We speak on his upcoming album, B.O.S.S. As well my Lakers and the best player in the NBA. Check out DX for more information on certain things that are brewing.
You know Shake and his non-sleeping methods of running this blog shit haha (after I posted this I see a blitz of emails in my inbox haha, thanks to everyone). Busta’s first single featuring Linkin Park, produced by Cool N Dre (with help from Mike Shinoda) for his upcoming LP, Blessed, dropping June 17th. Be on the lookout for the video in May.
