Guess Who's Back? AKA I Can't Leave Bloggin' Alone The Game Needs Me

A whole bunch of shit has happened since the last time I posted here. 50 Cent and Kanye West had a mini clash that was far less real than the Jon Lovitz/Andy Dick feud. I mean damn, even George Lopez is making it real for cats. He actually stepped to a biter a while back and beat the shit out of Carlos "Swiper" Mencia for repeating his old jokes on his recent stand up specials. Common's long awaited "Finding Forever" leaked and people all over the net are dissing the shit out of it...I like it, Then again, I liked "Kingdom Come" so my opinion should hold no weight (like Byron Crawford's overworked neck). I 've been too busy listening to a plethora of great/near classic releases from Camp Lo, Common, Marco Polo, Blue Scholars, Blu & Exile, Buff 1, and J Dilla's little brother Illa J. If you haven't heard "I Don't Wanna Die" yet click that link and do so now.

Remy Ma went and shot her stylist/weed carrier because she misplaced her money. This chick has terrible decision making abilities. She signed with Terror Squad, then she dissed Joe because her wack ass album flopped. Then she tried to get down with his biggest rivals, G-Unit. Then she went and said that there should be an age limit for rappers and that if you're 30 or over you shouldn't be emceeing...she said this shit ON CAMERA with a straight face! Then she chose this as a mixtape cover (Miami KAOS is going to Hell for this) before she fired the shot heard 'round the Net:

Let's all bow our heads and pray for this poor lost sheep *Bows heads and does silent prayer*

I've managed to help my brother sell a few beats, but I'm going to have to get a a real job I have to GO to in another place. I've been in severe writing withdrawal. It got so bad that I have outlines for blogs/articles on the backs of mad old (paid) bills. I've been devoting a good amount of time to the watching Red Sox (no shit?) try to keep the Yankees at bay while hoping they don't make it to the damn Wild Card. The lead is currently 8 games and they still have the best record in baseball at 63-40. Hold on to that lead, fellas. I can't wait until August 28-30 so the Sox can finally smack fire out of the Yankees themselves rather than let the Orioles do their dirty work.

That goddamn "Chocolate Rain" song/video is all over the place! I was groggy at 3:30 in the morning and my TV was still on. I thought I heard someone imitating R. Kelly, T Pain, and Rihanna all at the same just turns out it was some dude named J. Holliday's new video.

Over in Japan, there's this new girl group called Foxxi MisQ that has this joint "Ultimate Girl" that KNOCKS!

The crazy thing is that a lot of artists in Asia are bred/schooled in America and since they have trouble breaking into the American Pop/R&B market they just go over to Asia and blow the fuck up. American producers can also cake up by selling tracks to Korean and Japanese artists (the biggest markets) and get them checks. It's a big world, y'all. You NEED to start submitting tracks to these Asian record labels urban departments, Kanye West, Pharrell, Timbaland, Just Blaze, Full Force (remember them?) and Dallas Austin all have and now they can afford to rock BAPE's

I'm still trying to figure out what exactly is going on in "Meadowlands" and on "John From Cincinnatti". I thought it was an optical illusion, but no it isn't...the mom on "Meadowlands" really does have large spheres in both of her back pockets on the show's opening. Oh yeah, if the kid that plays Sean Yost on "John From Cincinnatti" isn't the worst damn child "actor" I've ever seen then Lil' Wayne is indeed the best rapper on the planet. I'd like to extand thanks to all of the regular readers and bloggers that frequent this blog and all of my fellow bloggers whose blogs I read and those who read mine (when I actually post something at least), I appreciate it greatly.

I don't know how often I'll be able to post for but I'm working on making a permanent arrangement that'll allow me to post well thought out entries like I used to rather than freestyling it all (like I'm doing right now).For some odd reason Technorati isn't processing my Pings to announce to the blogosphere that I updated the blog. Hopefully after I finish posting this it'll work.I'll leave you all with some of the things that have helped to keep me sane while I couldn't write on this blog over the last 24 days:

There's many more but I don't feel like looking for the pics. I'll be back later on. One.

I feel you, I'm kind of feeling "Finding Forever" as well..

Glad to see the return of Poisonous Paragraphs. It was certainly missed.

I'm also glad you're feeling that Lo Record, it might not be a certified classic, but I don't feel it's that far off either.

I feel you about the Common too. Objectively, it's a better record than probably all but 15-20 rap records that will be released this year, but I couldn't help but feel that he came so soft this time, especially after Be was such a great record (at least I thought so). Hell, like I said in my review, I really liked Electric Circus, so to see Common running in circles upset me, particularly when his m.o. has always been to innovate and look forward. Oh well, not like my review matters anyway. XXL gave it an XL and I'm sure it'll go gold.

Anyhow, good to see the blog back in business like Erick and Parrish.

"Well guess who's back and I got the fresh rap,... sorry didn't mean to keep you waiting so long"

"It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you"

"Once Again..."

"Welcome back, welcome back"

I'm a Lakers fan, but it's good to see something happening with the Boston Celtics. Really it's good to see Garnett getting the hell out of his twisted/warped position in Minnesota. I think they got about 3 seasons max to put that potential lineup to use before people start feeling their age.

OH and is that new Camp Lo dope? I've been waiting for a new release and I didn't take to the second one as well(have never finished it...bad of me I know). Anyway, good stuff. Peace.
