"2 It" - New Jack Hustle (Shawn Jackson & Newman) from Shawn Jackson on Vimeo.
Shawn Jackson (cali) and Newman (Seattle, Garfield Grad) are The New Jack Hustle. Shawn jackson was on the 2dopemixtape a bit ago. Pretty fresh video for a track that's not on the album. Why? Their answer: Good Question, No good explanation.
lol. Honesty is the best policy.
Murs For President out Today! New Music Tuesday.
Artwork by the Homie Steve Izzle who does amazing work on concert/club flyers, drawings, and tons of other shit but don't ask him to design you a logo for your blog because he'll take like 6 months on that shit even after you buy him lunch a couple of times. At least we got some rough drafts last year though. lol.
MANOJ from Zia Mohajerjasbi on Vimeo.
Local Filmmaker ZIA (who works on most of the important Seattle Hip-Hop Music Videos) has a new film out that's been in and around festivals over the last year, and now finally available on the Internet!
Big shout out to Zia who worked with Henry and I on multiple things and stay tuned for The Emerald City film to be on the internet in a few months as well, so long as Henry stays with his current plan he told me a while ago.
Damn, if someone from CNN calls you pathetic, and it's based on facts.. You must be.

Obama "sonnin' " McCain on the debate with video clips to back his statements... We'd call this beatin' worse than gettin' jumped down here... Or to you Seattle people... Is it called "Peter-Rolled?" Lol.
Ok. For the record. Murs > 50. Murs also had a movie with his album too. Walk like a man. It was a terrible movie, but he wasn't working with a budget like 50. lol. So f Curtis for thinking he's so original with all this bs. Decent track though. Produced by yer boy Jake One! White Van Music coming soon!

The new season starts in like 5 minutes too! GO WATCH!
Looks they have pretty much everyone's favorite characters in there. I'm seriously thinking of making an investment in this. I never did get to make it to the Kwik-E-Mart when The Simpsons' movie came out.
LOL. I swear this song is the perfect example of art imitating life. I can't tell you how many times I've related to this song when hanging out with a girl.
Biter: 88 Keys ft Kid Cudi - Wasting my Minutes
Writer: Andrew Gold - Never Let Her Slip Away
This song was off his album, Veteran, that came out last year. This remix with Juelz is a new version though that just released not too long ago. I have to say I don't remember this album even dropping, but I do know that Marques' new album, Mr. Houston is dropping in November.
The new single is called Sunset. It's a whole new sound from him..it's real dope. Some acoustic shit at the beginning. I gotta say I dig this and I TRULY feel like this situation JUST happened to me..
Welcome to Soulful Sundaes! This song is ill. I think this missed the summer madness, but it's still a hit. We need some rotations of new music in the clubs, there is alot of quality stuff like this that will get the party jumpin.
Tide Is High
Fux wit it!
September 27, 2008
Pardon the absence of important posts lately. The bomb squad is busy. Today we're hooking up with Tendo Beats to smooth things out with this track right here:
All the shit was made by the genius Tendo, I just rearranged everything to give him a better example of how it should sound. We're basically jacking Henry's soundtrack for Emerald City, and remixing it into a hiphop beat for Micheal Jordan (No 23 - It's Micheal & Jordan) to spit over.
We'll be back on our game SHORTLY.
and just because I used the title I did. RIP Dilla.

Boss status. Fuck the iphone. Coppin with my unemployment checks. lol. Hey Tiffloc. I know you need a new phone. Get on it. October! No set date (c) Masta Killa. but rumor is oct. 22nd.
I'm glad I never took more than 13 seconds to watch the original show. Apparently this was after it all completed and filming some interviews for the reunion show. Some guy caught feelings. Apparently it has to do with some backstory of the show. Hilarious regardless.
HAHAHA Homie's HAT was SPINNING!!!!!!!!!

Breaking: McCain Campaign Suspends Campaign Due To Crisis, Calls On Delay For Debate
By Greg Sargent - September 24, 2008, 2:59PM
John McCain will say later today in New York that he's suspending his campaign in response to the economic crisis, and is calling on Barack Obama to delay Friday's debate. From the prepared remarks just sent out by his campaign:
Tomorrow morning, I will suspend my campaign and return to Washington after speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative. I have spoken to Senator Obama and informed him of my decision and have asked him to join me.
I am calling on the President to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself. It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem.
We must meet as Americans, not as Democrats or Republicans, and we must meet until this crisis is resolved. I am directing my campaign to work with the Obama campaign and the commission on presidential debates to delay Friday night's debate until we have taken action to address this crisis.
It's not immediately clear what this means in practice. Will all of McCain's ads come down? Will the campaign stop sending out statements? Will campaign aides all leave headquarters and turn out the lights?
So what exactly does this mean?
Clever chess move by McCain to make himself look like he loves America?
Quick bail out to not have to debate with Obama because McCain's dug such a hole for himself at this point he couldn't possibly dig his OLD ASS out of it?
What you guys all think?
So Obama has refused to halt the campaign.
“This is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who in approximately 40 days will be responsible for dealing with this mess,” Obama told reporters in Clearwater, Fla
“It’s going to be part of the president’s job to be able to deal with more than one thing at once.”
Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., a close adviser to Obama, called the idea “the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football or Marys.”
But Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, welcomed MCCain’s offer.
“This is the John McCain I know,” Hatch said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “He is willing to risk election to do what’s right for the country.”
HMM... More on this as it develops
With an appearance from Young sherm! lol. Shout out to the homie Zia who did the video (I worked with him and Marty on stuff before) and he's done all the blue scholars video.
September 23, 2008
some one please help me get back to my daddyyyyyyyyyyyy...pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease...
i dont knowwwwwwwww what happened...i was with him and he was beeeeeeeaten....they were punching dub b...and kicking dub beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....smearing his make up...pulling his braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaids...they made him co sign for houses and carrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs...
Details as more information comes to us.
Uh huh. Yes it did.
I don't frequent the 206proof forums very much, so I don't really know the backstory behind all this. Maybe mike can chip in with his .02. Anyway, this dude has a love thing for Neema, and reps Seattle on his album cover because he can't blow up in his hometown New York (just guessing). Shouts are deserved to the raindrop fam for the backstory behind the lovefest.
The Set Up
The good folks at ONSMASH.COM always have hidden gems in their video list. This is one of them. According to them this track is produced by a Dr. Dre protege who also goes by the name of Focus. Confused yet? Anyway he proceeds to lay into the beat in the manner of a savage. enjoy
DECIBEL Starts Thursday! It's gonna go down. I'll be there at least one of the days.
So will these guys..
LA Riots. They will be there in full effect. They JUST dropped volume 1 of their remix series.
GET THAT HERE.
I hope I see some of ya'll there. Hip-Hop isn't the end!
=ToP ! FLiTE=
Jin couldn't find an instrumental so he just looped the intro and a few different parts. lol. I'm sure now yeezy will hit him up for a real one though. I fux with this. What say the rest of you?
Hmmm... looks worthy of another look. Not sure they should have made this shit still but still to be determined whether it will get my money. Either way I'll see it though. They're being hella sly about not showing any of the real acting or the main character. Very creative and well done trailer for that purpose. Assholes. I'm onto your shit.

The Homie GMK sent us this new unofficial remix sometime last week, but Mike and I seriously slipped and forgot to post it immediately. Then some shit happens in life and blogging isn't the #1 priority anymore. But no excuses. I got reminded that I needed to post it and show homeboy love when the record leaked out to the other Seattle blogs (Whdudup to RainDrop and BlogsisWatching.)
Is there any love - GMK REMIX
Word! Seattle. Stand up!
While we're at it, check out our interview with homeboy way back when we were FIRST starting the blog thing. GMK Interview
Hip-Hop NEEDS this right now. That positive role model shit. Any girls out there that got their own need to holla at me because I FUXXXX WITH THIS. I FUX with it.
Tommie Smith and John Carlos GOT OFF in 68. Do your History Homework. And the following year everyone else did.
Peace to 1968 AND 69. This shirt will be available soon..
Goods I'm glancing in your direction. FUX WIT ME!
Okay..firstly prayers go out to everyone involved. Secondly, when do you EVER hear of a celebrity crash where the CELEBRITIES survive but everyone ELSE dies? CRAZYNESS...

CNN - Fellatio is good for you
head over to the 2dopeboyz spot for a CDQ MP3 version of the song below (SWAGGER LIKE PUFF) and some NICCCCCE photos of Aubrey's complex shots. YOU KNOW she likes to lick the pole. lmao. Only because she reads CNN tho.
EDIT: For you dum dums out there. It's not really CNN. If you look at the actual address bar. lol. But YOUR GIRL DONT HAVE TO KNOW!
Swagger at a hundred trillion ZILLION
Part 2 is the in related videos but this one is much more interesting. The other one he just drives around his jeep. But can we talk about Orange Juice and Fruit Loops?
I'm bout to try that. lol
CIROC OBAMA FOR PREZ! See him Kiss the Ring? lol. This is my joint!
I was gonna do that Lil Rok song Mrs. Jones for this week a couple of days ago when I was thinking about what one to do. Then Mike and I started watching throwback episodes of the Fresh Prince. Carlton started playing Bobby Vinton on that episode where he falls in love with Tyra before Will snatches her:
Lol. So I thought I'd do this one instead. That, AND the fact this is before Akon (and everybody) was on their Autotune bullshit. Nice to reminisce.
Biter: Akon - Mr. Lonely
Writer: Bobby Vinton - Mr Lonely
Hope you bombers aren't lonely tonight, because it's fuckin FRIDAY! Although it really doesn't matter anymore now that I don't have a job. lol. But THATS NOT THE POINT!
I GOT MY BITCH WIT ME TONIGHT! lol.
Jeanius Jean Grae has put up an ad on Craigslist for guest verses (or hooks, intros, whatever). So all you local emcees who want a brilliant artist featured on your song. Get on that!
Here's the ad:
So, the economy sucks.... I apparently have another unauthorized album for sale dropping Sept 30th and I figure, if everyones gonna make money offa me, why not make it directly and directly to the people who really love this shit anyway.
Out the hands of big business, straight to you.
So.. you got beats?? cd's?? envelopes?? yousendit?? protools?
Whatever you got I'll try and find a way to work with it.
I work fast, so you'll have em fast.
16's for $800 (cause 8's half of 16..ooh math! math yo!) and yeah..we can negotiate.
Maybe you want a hook.. or 8 bars. or an into.. or outro.. whatever.
Figured we'd take advantage of our online community, since some of us may not get the chance to meet in person.
Kinda stick it to the man too. Who doesn't like that?
You send it to me.. You know you gotta pay me first.. lol ... Trust me, if I don't do it you can find me, right? And talk crappity crap about me, cause it's the internet.. I like the honor system and was raised on it.
Sooo... lets have some fun with it.. for ONCE in a long time.
Once you got it, you got it. Not looking for any extra publishing or anything..
Like Half Baked, "Go! Sell Weed!"
Just decided to do this today, so we can do deposits or western union.
I like working with people who love doing this and dont get enough shine.. plus, I like money just coming to me.
I'll put different songs up on my myspace everyday and change you guys to my top friends.
I'm sure I'll find some producers/emcees I didn't even know about and that would be awesome.
EMAIL THE ADDRESS AND LETS GET GOING.
