“Bait” – Wale

I have no idea what the fuck Wale is talking about but this shit is FIRE! This is what hip hop needs. Individuality, creativity and a introduction to another region. I’ve never been to D.C. and this track was like a vacation. I got to experience D.C. culture in 4 minutes. Please don’t get him confused with another rap nigga. #Waleback

Video: Stretching – Rosa Acosta

To show her appreciation to her 115k+ twitter followers, Rosa Acosta sent this viral. Now, normally this isn’t what we really do around these parts but it would just be a disservice if I didn’t post this. I didn’t do it for me, I did it for us. Lastly I’d like to iterate: I’m no pervert, just a purveyor of fine things. It’s important to be limber. I never knew how beneficial it could be, for us.

Knocked Up – Curt@!n$

I haven’t had time to find out about other music other than hip-hop for some time now. Never really bothered me until I heard this. Curt@!n$ is a favorite but the song he covered is the gem here. Yes “The Show Stopper” does his thing but MY GOD Lykke Li has a talent. Her voice is special. If I were in charge of her marketing she’d have headlined the Superbowl. Much, much better than Fergie.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I took the liberty of adding the Lykki Li Rodeo mash up after the jump. NICE

Video: Letter to my Son – Don Trip

This track is so right. It just comes across so sincere. You feel the pain in the words used and hear the anger in his voice. I wish life wasn’t like that for everyman that wants to be there and can’t.

Saw this on ALBe back’s twitter. Shout’s to ALBe & R.I.P. Big Pun

SLEEK by 50 Cent

You want to make some money? Invest in this company H & H imports Inc. Get yourself $1,000.00-borrow, steal, barter- start an etrade account and buy as many shares as you can. Sit back, wait a month then cash in. This stock bubbled 355% over the weekend. It probably won’t see gains like that in a month but that $1,000.00 will see a better rate of return than your standard savings account. You can’t afford to put it in a CD or an annuity so H&HL and various other penny stocks are your best bet. Salute to 50 Cent and letting us make some good ol’ USD. Now that’s SLEEK.

Dayz of Thunder – Curren$y

Curren$y and his favorite directors got together, yet again, and gave us a video. You might think it’s overrated but you love it though.

I Ain’t Shit – Big. K.R.I.T.

This is supposedly off an upcoming mixtape. It has an older look to it though. Why didn’t he go with Creative Control like in his last video’s? Politics. I’m not saying the direction was bad on this, I’m just saying it’s different.

Of course Shout to Onsmash

The New York Times Covers Harlem’s Nutcracker

Visitors to any block party or outdoor event in Harlem this summer could not have missed the chant of “Nutcrackers! Nutcrackers!”

People in the neighborhood said selling nutcrackers had become more prevalent in the dismal economy, a means some have used to supplement their incomes with quick and easy money. Some who remember the crack boom of the mid-1980s and early 1990s, and the destruction it heaped upon the community, justify the sales, seeing them as akin to marijuana dealing or numbers gambling.
