True Romance x 3 More Archives From Skyzoo

Skyzoo

My dude Fresh sent me these tracks from Skyzoo. Turns out these classico archives have been leaking on my hiatus. But now I’m back and I’m going to catch you up. And now a word:

For this 4th installment of “Skyzoo Archives”, I present to you “True Romance – 2004″, produced by 9th Wonder. As some of you may know, 9th and I have a history as far as making dope story joints together (ie: Cloud 9, etc). He’s like the Toomp to my TI. This one though is a joint I did before I even met him. It was one of those leaked beats of his that were all over the net back when 9th first popped off. This one is a deep/emotional story joint. Filled with characters, plots, locations, sound effects, the works. I can count on one hand the amount of people who’ve heard this, so this one is SUPER rare. “True Romance-2004″, produced by 9th Wonder. P.S: wait ’til ya’ll hear what we did for “The Salvation”. Smh. Holla

Plus part 3, 2, & 1 after the jump.

Run D.M.C. Get’s Nominated For The
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Run D.M.C.

Well it’s about damn time!!!! Finally hip-hop’s premier rap group (probably it’s greatest) gets acknowledged by the folks over at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame committee. Along with Metallica & The Stooges, Run D.M.C. is on the ballot for this year’s induction. No disrespect to the other candidates, but Run D.M.C. made hip-hop so big that it hasn’t looked back since. This was a time back when respect for the DJ actually meant something. My vote is going for them & I hope the people in charge make the same decision. R.I.P. Jam Master J.

Andre 3000′s Clothing Line ‘Benjamin Bixby’

Andre 3000

Andre 3000 comes through with his upscale menswear line, Benjamin Bixby. I for one wouldn’t cop an entire outfit, but maybe a few pieces here & there. Gotta get your ‘Love Below’ on when you’re out on the town sometimes. After making it’s debut at Harrod’s in London, be on the lookout for the line at Barney’s New York soon.

Respect due to Hypebeast

Clinton Sparks Interviews T.I.

Konvict’s resident DJ, Clinton Sparks, talks to Tip about his new clothing line “Akoo” & his upcoming date with the Big House. Can’t say he’s too happy about that but given the terms that he’s going in under, he might be the happiest man in there when the time comes (don’t drop that soap bruh).

Common On KUBE 93′s Sound Session


Chi-Town’s savior (yeah I said it, so what???), Common chops it up on the KUBE Sound Session. He talks about his upcoming “Universal Mind Control” album, his creative process working with the Neptunes, upcoming acting roles, his classic catalog, the presidential election & whole bunch more. I’m steadily waiting for him to drop another classic album.

Peter Rosenberg For Hot 97′s “Hip-Hop Votes”

My favorite Jew, Peter Rosenberg, asks the questions that we all wanna ask some of these random ass people we see in the streets. Nothing is better than a New Yorker keeping it real on who they want to vote for in the upcoming election & why.

Charles Hamilton On HipHopGameTV (Part 3)

Sonic’s #1 fan chats it up with HipHopGameTV about established artists who show him love, his time in the studio with Kanye & where he got his drive from. His impersonation of 50 is funny but I mean I really could care less. I’m sure one person will come across this site & appreciate it (not sure who but this is for you). Let the Hate Week begin.
