Katrina pushed one of the boats into the highway, the other into the mall's parking lot. Sounds alot more devastating that alot of rain, which is what everybody got. Also, people from here to about 2 hours north of the coastal line in Mississippi, part of Louisiana and Alabama had no power. Mainly Mississippi. While New Orleans residents got help from everybody it seemed, and got bus rides to Houston. Thousands of people down in Mississippi are without power, without gas, without homes, and all the got was a lousy Bush speech about "this will become an even greater coast." Mississippi was over-looked so bad by the Bush administration, that even the republicans in office in the state were pissed at him. At LEAST New Orleans people were able to get rides out. While my people were stuck, with casinos blocking highways, and nobody comin' to help but our own. New Orleans got national help. Mississippi got their power turned back on by Mississippi power. New Orleans residents got alotta money and food stamp cards from Fema. All we got were food stamp cards and insurance companies that re-nigged on their word. In a nut-shell. We only got a FRACTION of the good things New Orleans got, and got EVERYTHING and then some of the worse part. My point of this being when Gustav REALLY hits Louisina head on, you will see the real difference between the two (even though Gustav is abit stronger.) The media totally ignored Mississippi. Kanye West was wrong, George Bush doesn't care about people thats not in his tax bracket. Not just black people! ( Its a whole different theory going into the New Orleans people gettin' shipped away deal. But that's a different discussion. It also ties into why the French Quarters remained dry.)
They build navy ships off the coast of Biloxi, and there's an army base about 30 minutes north of the city, so save your "Mississippi isn't important as New Orleans" bullshit. So yea, I get heated whenever its brought up or when I think about it. The media, and for people who live / lived in New Orleans that only believe its about them. And I basically saw this in 3rd person because at the time I was in Baton Rouge, LA goin' to schoo' while Katrina was goin' out. So I got to keep up with the news while I couldn't keep up with my parents and friends that were back in Mississippi. Yes, they fucked over people in New Orleans. But my state were fucked over by the government and stomped in the ground by mother nature. Luckily, Gustav has gotten alil' weaker over-night, but you'll still see what a hurricane really does. I'm outta Baton Rouge, so good luck, God bless, n be safe to all yall that's in harms way.
The album drops on September 16th!!! Raphael Saadiq has always been one of my favorites. Not only has he given us great music for almost the last 2 decades but he has also inspired many artists that we love. Kelis, Andre 3000, Pharrell..just to name a few, ya know. You definitely need to cop. He has a new song out now too called Staying in Love. Pretty spiffy.
I almost want to put this song on Autoplay and just let it bang whenever ya'll go to the page. Solange opens up with a statement. "I AM ME. JUST MY GOD GIVEN NAME." Not only is the vibe on this song DUMB funky, but what she is saying is MAD SERIOUS. This is the opening song to her album, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. Solange is finally out of the box. The world's not ready..but they better be. I ALWAYS thought she was more beautiful than her older sibling, not to take away from "B", but I'm just saying, it was only inevitable she would break out. She is seriously rhyming some HEAT on here..the part where it breaks down..MMMMM. I need to remix this NOW. I'm lovin it! Back to the music though!
Lemme Find the Lyrics..
Get me Get me out of this box
I feel so claustrophobic in here
Leave your labels leave with no patience
Hear my voice and fill with your ears
I'm no soul girl equipped with no afro.
I'm just my god given name.
I'm not becoming expectation
I'm not her and never will be
Two girls gone in different direction
Striving towards the same galaxy
Let my star light shine on its own
No I'm no sister.
I'm just my god given name
And I'm sorry if this planet that I'm living on is quizzical.
My lyrical ambition some times dont ring a bell
I'm sorry if my visual don't lie to put my feelings
And my physical exhibit doesn't represent me well
I'm sorry if I'm curious, delirious and I don't take life serious
I'm here at the life of a million debts.
And I'm sorry if I'm talking shit.
But I really do mean well
We gotta long long moon to glow
Hadley's the long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eye open (2x)
We got so long to go
We got so far to go
Hadley's the long road
Hadley's the long road
God given name
Thank you Solange..and WELCOME..
TO SOULFUL SUNDAES.

Free Fresh Jive T-Shirt Giveaways. It's about to be on and crackin. Do You. I'ma damn sure do me.
See ya there boppers!
Everyone is talking about how he is saying vote Obama. Which is obvious and fantastic. But amongst that no one noticed he threw subliminals at these fake ass artists out here.
(*COUGH COUGH --RICK ROSS!--COUGH COUGH*). Towards the end he's like "I'm the realest mothaf*cka that you've seen thus far". Hrrmm.......Clever YEEZY..clever.
TURN THAT FUCKING VOCODER OFF THOUGH!
Katrina hit New Orleans, LA on August 28th 2005. As of August 30th, 2008 Hurricane Gustav is heading that way, although at the time is slated to hit more to the left. I know a lot of work has been done to get the city back to normal, but it can't be near complete after just 3 years. Unfortunately Bushy Boy is still in office. Let's watch them fuck this one up too. We're hoping for the best.
It's about to CRACK. If you like electronica(i.e., Telepopmusik, Flying Lotus, Black Ghosts, Blue Sky Black Death, Justice, The list goes on..) you're gonna love this Festival. It's about to go down!!

One of my favorite websites to shop. We Sold Out Has been acquired by Colette, they have a fresh new layout now, and it's hella dope. Some sick ass cuts on there too. Go listen to the Boombox!
Last April, Schultz sued to regain ownership, contending Bennett failed to carry through on a promise to negotiate in good faith for a new arena in Seattle for one full year. Schultz had hoped to undo the sale so he could initiate a transfer of the team to a buyer who would keep it in Seattle.
"Seattle’s best chance for a professional basketball franchise is to end this litigation and allow the city, state Legislature and other parties to begin the necessary fence mending with the NBA.”
Now I know what you're thinking because I thought the same thing at first. "God damn. Not another fusion bullshit." But once I read the description I was very pleased.
Anyone who knows Jordan's knows that #1) Retros aren't usually made with the toughest materials meant for hardcore ballin'. In other words, just because you get a pair of LeBron's from Finishline, doesn't mean you and James are rocking the same shoe. His are made of stronger materials. (Every Brand does this obviously) #2) While MJ was the man of his time. His time was a long time ago and the technology of today outdoes his shoes easily.
So Jordan Brand came up with the idea of a new kind of fusion. Take the classic style of some the favorite Jordan's and Fuse it with newer better basketball technology.
The Air Jordan True Flight will take off January 17th for $140.
The only question now is whether these will actually perform good on the court.
More pictures available at NiceKicks.
I remember when this was going on at first and then I forgot about it. It's the finals week and it's down to Jay-Z vs Eminem.
Which is a respectable final. But let's look at the process it took to get here.
Final 4 / Elite 8:
Jay-Z > Kanye West
Eminem > Nas
Ludacris > Lil Wayne
The Game > Andre 3000
You can make an argument for all of these. Except THE GAME over Andre 3000. smh. That's all I can do. Everyone is sippin the Game juice right now. His album is getting amazing reviews everywhere I turn from normally level headed people. I think I need to listen to it again. Maybe it's just The Drop-Bomb Crew that thinks the shit sucks. Except for Fresh. He probably loves it. lol.
What? You thought we just blog? shiiit.
If you're LUCKY, we might drop some hints along the way.
but for now, I'm gonna leave you with this:
Any Man, Woman or Dog that sits behind his blog all day, either criticizing or judging other people for their work and is not doing something to change the status quo themselves... is a BITCH.
and I am NOT a bitch.
RE-Upped the picture, thought it was worth a bump anyway.
When you buy the deluxe edition I think, the cd comes with a short 30 minute film he made about him running for president. Looks hilarious. He's been on his short film tip for a minute. I remember his Walk Like A Man movie based off the song. Great song, Terrible movie. lol. But shit. Can't blame a dude for trying. Still my favorite MC right now. This looks much better quality and well worth watching.
MURS FOR PRESIDENT!
Now, if you're not familiar with Keith Olbermann, he's the equivalent to Faux's New's Bill O'Reilly. Not sayin' he's the same type of person, but what I meant was that the company loves him alot, and he gets his own opinionated show. Ahem, anyway, he always has a part of his show that comes on called "Worst Person In the World" (Very interesting, and funny facts,) and its usually three cases where someone is at fault and he'll explain and take each case from worse, to worser, then worst. And in this particular clip, he doesn't bad-talk ECA, he just gives 'em alil' advice.
