I Carry The Cross For The Duke

I Carry The Cross

NaS “I Carry The Cross” is currently the soundtrack to my life at the moment. PMD serves as our voice to the people about how we feel about this thing of ours called Hip Hop. At the moment I am in a state where I have to take a mini break from serving yall that real sh**.


When I mean real shit I’m talking about the way I really feel about this music. I never straddled the fence like other waiting for the majority to say what I think is hot or not. That’s why you ride with the Duke (pause) each and every day. With that being said I will continue to carry the cross – except for the rest of the week. My real life is very entwined with the Duke and currently one of my children need my attention. Gotta get some business in order hence the lack of crazy posts since last Friday. Also, a big “fuck you!” to youtube and Fox searchlight for pulling the Gravy video of him practicing for the role. Who else would you give the footage to, Perez Hilton?. This is a Hip Hop portal mufucka, but I digress cause I have tons more and it will be seen.

To pour salt on the wound, I lost my ipod sometime this morning. F.B.I. Pod The 3rd was probably lost on the 4 train or the 46 bus going down Utica. Either way he’ll bring joy to someone and might open his or her eyes to the plethora of music (15,541 to be exact) squeezed on it. I’ll miss you and will remember the play lists that I bumped, tracks I quickly erased and skipped. All in all I wouldn’t have traded my ipod for yours. It was my partner in writing reviews, watching movies on my TV the same night they came out (screeners of course). Hopefully your journey will be a good one in the hands of a music fanatic like myself. Peace my Duke you will be missed.

Back to the cross, I wear many hats in and one must come first until Monday. So for the rest of the week I’ll sit in front of this computer and work. I know I promised a bunch of new things (more reviews, podcasts, interviews, re:versals, etc.) and I will deliver but like I said “I Carry The Cross”. Bout to do a few collaborations (shouts to Dallas & The Real) and take PMD up another tier. So allow me to go to the mountains and learn to harness my Chi. I will be back with a new Kung Fu and will use it on those who oppose. This game is getting filled on every level with a bunch of posers. Were damn sure not the first but we are true to our voice. If I hate something I’ll tell you, if I like it or not I’ll post it but my opinion will be coupled with it. Friend or Foe I’ll keep it real witcha.

I’ll fall back and do what’s needed to get PMD on track and all my ducks in a row. I’ll slack a little tomorrow to go be an extra in the Notorious B.I.G. movie, but for the most part, I’ll be picking digital cotton on this side. My dudes Big Homie | Smartenupnas | Shake | Dallas will keep you laced in my absence. Fresh might leak you sumn, and I might pop in to leak Biggavelli’s new mix (only thing that keeps me from missing my iPod) since it’s suppose to drop any second, but thats it.

For the aspiring artists and indie movements we’ve rocked with keep sending your stuff. We will continue to provide that avenue for real Hip Hop music. And on that note Picture Me Rollin….

P.S. I still need Glow In The Dark tickets. I have two options, comb through my industry contacts or sleep wth some old socialite women for money. Please assist Dukes
