Why not listen after that great piece right there. It's food for your mind. The veggies of Hip Hop. The good one. Check it out. Peep these two tracks here first and then go on to listen to the album.
So my best buddy, Modi over at DCtoBC has been hyping up this rapper for a long ass time. I'm talking about gmail chats, tweets, and more tweets. Let me not forget the fact that in the car, Kendrick was all I heard. And although he hypes him to the core, Kendrick is pretty good. He has a weird way of rapping. Not weird like ewwww...but weird in a good way. (wc?) But Kendrick is from Compton and he does great work with the mixtape and on a majority of his tracks. I rock with it and I think you should too. Just listen to these tracks and peep the flavor in your ear.
Pep Rally which features 11 original tracks, lives up to it’s name--as a high energy, fun mixtape that cleverly combines indie sampling and hip hop music. Pep Rally is a celebration of growing up, narrated with help from samples by Beach House, Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys and more!
I enjoyed listening to this mixtape and just to let you know my friend was in the car as I was playing "Words Of Wisdom" and she liked it so yeah just support and listen.
Are you thinking about jumping out the window and letting everything go? Well I hope not. Anyways, Suai was on a Big Sean track and it was great so here is more from her. She re-wrote Kanye's "Power" and shot a quick video for it. Enjoy

So this is my friend Amanny. She can sing her ass off. But this is when she truly shows her skills on that acoustic, no studio shit, I'm gonna sing my ass off type of stuff. Check it out and I'm sure you're gonna like it. There's no way you can't like it.
That's my state of being right now and it's crazy how I go to the blog to share how I'm feeling. I'm going to take a shower, watch Modern Family, listen to some podcasts and fall asleep. Tomorrow I'll wake up and be the same smiley, cheerful dude again. I would have uploaded some music but even that's not working. Goodness. See yall tomorrow.
Hmm...I like the song for what it stands for but I don't know if the message is being portrayed correctly through the video. What do you think? I expected something like 3 different mini-stories of women reaching their breaking point and leaving and stuff like that.
So for the first ever 400 Forbes Summit these three sat down and talked about success for the release the 400 World's Richest People List. Check it out. I didn't watch it as of yet but I'm sure it's great.
Also catch Hov talking about a specific verse for his new book Decoded
I feel like this album will be okay. Why? I can understand Gucci a little bit more. I'm not talking about some thoughtful shit here. I'm talking like I understand what he's saying because he's pronouncing all his words. Thanks Gucci.
