YESTERDAY SportNLife Remix
The Biz. Here's a Vid of a live performance of the OG version. Whatup Blackchild.
Understand where I'm comin from?
We're starting a day into her 30-day travel through 30 different pairs of footwear. I like day 2 the best so far for some obvious, and some not so obvious reasons. CHECK!
Day 1: Brian Atwood Pumps
“I made up a color for these Brian Atwood platform pumps: “caramel rose”. lol! Heading out for dinner”- Amerie
Day 2: Minnetonka Moccasins
“I’ve been wearing these moccasins for yeeearrrs, & I love them! Very comfy! I have the knee-high ones too, but these are my faves.” - Amerie
Look at those legs man..
Okay, I know it's about shoes, but this is Drop-Bomb. This is a MAN'S Site. With the exception of Tiff(Whatup LOC). Not only do I love Amerie, but the legs...if I didn't know that was her I still would have said that.
Hieroglyphics and Capcom have teamed up to bring a dope idea to the forefront. It's gonna be a mixtape/soundtrack to the ever-famed Marvel V. Capcom 2! Here's some more details from the officials:
For too long gamers have been bludgeoned by grating, repetitive game soundtracks. Capcom has answered their prayers and exceeded expectations by assembling the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Hip Hop Mixtape. The lead video from the Mixtape- "Battle Drum"- is provided by legendary Oakland hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics. Directed by Andrew Georgopolous and Paul Trillo, the video pays tribute to Capcom's rich history in the gaming industry by evoking classic Street Fighter imagery, as the rapping protagonists take down henchmen in a variety of settings, including a junkyard and a dojo. Tajai was thrilled with the video- "it's got some live action and mimics the video game itself. It’s not just us rapping, it puts us inside the game." Tajai says that the action was so intense, in fact, that "we had to tone it down for the final cut because it was too violent. We were really fighting behind the scenes." The track was produced by Domino, and features verses by Tajai, Casual, and Pep Love. With a catchy chorus, belted out powerfully by Tajai ("Hands, feet, 'bo’s, teeth, knees. Even the words I speak cut deep."), there can be no doubt that "Battle Drum" was perfectly crafted for a fighting game like Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The song, with its infectious chorus and pugilistic verses, will be instrumental in motivating gamers to crush their opponents. The video features cameos by Hieroglyphics members Del The Funky Homosapien, A- Plus (and his son, who features at the beginning of the video), and Phesto, as well as Capcom's own John Diamonon.
Sounds crazy legit right?? Maybe they'll perform some of these cuts on tour, as Souls of Mischief are traveling the world as we speak! They'll be here in Seatown very soon. Peep the calendar for the town nearest you and get hip.

AFTER NINE LOOOOOONG YEARS!!! Guess who's comin' back home...
And Guess who should probably be worried....
But Diddy's not worried, or at least that's the public face he's putting on. This is what he said according to AllHipHop.
I looked forward to this day. The whole situation was a tragic situation. He’s a young man that has a whole life ahead of him to live to be successful and to come out here and put his foot in the game....Rumors have also swirled around about him being signed to Roc Nation with Jay-Z, but Jay-Z shot those rumors down, or at least not yet anyway.
I don’t have anything to do with his personal business or his career, Combs told AllHipHop.com. As far as our relationship, only time will tell.
