Some of you know him as Skillz. Some of you know him as Mad Skillz. Some of you don’t even know him at all. Don’t worry though, dude’s only relevant about one month of the year. I saw him live at the Hammerstein Ballroom, opening for Jurassic 5 about five years ago. Basically, every year around New Years, Skillz puts together a clever “rap-up” of the year’s events in pop culture and hip-hop, touching on everything from Obama to Tiger Woods to Kanye & Lil’ Mama acting a fool. Hit the jump for a history of Skillz’ clever rap-ups. (more…)

Some of you have probably already heard about the kid Theophilus London (say whaaat?). If you haven’t, he’s a Brooklyn rapper kid who goes in over weird electro cudi-type beats. I’m actually feeling him on “This Charming Mixtape”, and it’s about time considering dude put it out almost a year ago. Either way, read more to listen to some key tracks and to download the entire mixtape for free. Don’t forget to comment! (more…)

Not a whole lot to do over Christmas break, but I couldn’t be less mad at that. Been watching a lot of Hulu lately, catching up on TV that I never get the chance to watch when at school. I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz for a long time now about It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and since I’d like to think I have pretty good taste in sitcoms and tv shows etc, if you don’t already watch this show you definitely should. Hit the jump to see why I think it’s worth your time as well as some links to hysterical episodes. (more…)

This ridiculous replica of the classic Air Max 90 was done by UK artist Benedict Radcliffe. The shoe measures to a massive 11.4 feet and was fully commissioned by Nike. Check out a brief interview with Benedict about the project right here. MaxB insisted I throw a jump in here so hit it if you want to see more pictures of the nikes. (more…)

I know a lot of people dislike this song and this and that. Having said that, I think the video is pretty dope. A lot of people hate on Mr. Hudson, as did I when I first found out who he was, but the man definitely has talent. For those of you that are unfamiliar with him; hit the jump to see more footage involving Mr. Hudson. (more…)

Had to get something posted today. This track was released yesterday and was supposed to be the intro for Attention Deficit. Track was produced by Osinachi, a DC native producer, who also set Wale up with the Nike Boots beat.

I saw this and figured it goes with the spirit of Vail. If you’ve got a spare $10,000 to drop on skis, you should probably invest in a pair of limited edition Zai for Bentley skis. Yes, that’s Bentley as in the car. Pretty dope skis though. Hit the jump to see more pictures. (more…)

If you caught Jordan’s post from earlier, you already know where we’re at. Just finished up the semester and flew out to Vail today. Looking forward to a day of fun in the Colorado sun tomorrow and it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t put together a little playlist for our day of shredding. Hit the jump for downloads and more.

Most of you probably don’t know who Nickelus F is. He was recently featured on Complex Magazines Ten Most Underrated Rappers. He is featured on a lot of Drizzy’s mixtape Room For Improvement.  On this freestyle, he comes HARD over Jay Electronica’s song of the year Exhibit C.

If you haven’t Kanye‘s “See You in My Nightmares” video, directed by Spike Jonze, definitely check it out. It’s without a doubt the oddest music video short film I’ve ever watched, and yes, that is including Busta’s “Dangerous“. Hit the jump for a little more on the film and why I think ‘Ye may have found himself a new hobby…

Game sounds extremely laid back on this track, on his verses and chorus. I think it is a pretty safe assumption that this will be on The R.E.D. Album dropping 2/16/10.

Had to give you folks something for today. Track is extra short, which leads me to believe this is not the mastered version, so check back. Nothing special, but enjoy.
