A What’s New In Dart’s iPod Special Edition AKA The 1st Of The Month

Hello, true believers! The only "release" worth any attention that has recently surfaced was Kool G Rap's new project on Koch "Half A Klip". This album has been pushed back twice since it was originally announced and now it's time to find out why:

Unfortunately, it seems to be nothing more than an extended EP a la Big Noyd's "Episodes Ov A Hustla". A bunch of these songs sound like outtakes from "The Gianacana Story". The song "With a Bullet" is just a Big Daddy Kane-less remix of the classic joint "#1 With A Bullet" from the last Kool G Rap & DJ Polo album "Live And Let Die" and the song "On The Rise Again" just sounds like a DJ Premier ProTools retooling. The vocals clearly weren't originally recorded to that bloody way in hell. Just listen closely to the song for God's sake!

The two bonus tracks consist of yet another version of "What's More Realer Than That?" that's 1:05 longer than the other and has a different beat (d.original?) and another version of "On The Rise Again" that may or may not be edited. That brings the total amount to 11 tracks (except for the fact that two songs are repeats and one "song" is comprised of 15 year old verses reworked into a new beat). I honestly don't know who would pay for this release given those facts. I love G Rap but what the fuck is this shit? This joint gets the gas face and the bozack for trying to pass off a glorified mixtape/remix album as a proper release.

Is that Del on Def Jux? I had heard he got signed there. If so, should be real interesting.

What up Dart? It's good that I checked by here to see what new music is hitting or has hit the shelves. That 9th Wonder is something that I want to check out. Thanks for posting that stuff. Also, you know I got to ask you about the Patriots' loss to the Giants. What's your take on all that?

Read my lone statement about my beloved Pats colossal failure over at Armchair Linebackers @

Cool. I just read your view on the Patriot's loss to the Giants. I agree with all that you said and I can also add that Tom Brady might have to get pyschiatric help because he has to be losing his mind over the fact that he's lost to a Manning in the playoffs in back to back seasons. It would seriously piss me off.

In other news, the Celtics look like they got all other teams in the East down on their knees and hopefully we'll see the match up in the Finals with my Lakers.
