What up! I'm consciously making an effort to stay up on the bloggin' tip...well, more importantly, I wanna stay current and relative to what's going on today, with me and in general. So yea, I'm gonna try my best to post something everyday, or at least a few times a week. I don't wanna force blog either, ya know? The idea is to blog about shit that's on your mind...whether it's current events, interests, arts, etc. Anyway, for now, I'll leave y'all with this...probably the hottest cypher I've ever seen, in today's world at least. It was shown on Tuesday nite, on the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards. There were a few cyphers shown, but this one features Mos Def, Black Thought (of The Roots), and Eminem. The shit had me outta my chair and hyped up. THIS is what hip hop is about...shame how it's become all about swag and catchy dance moves, huh? Enjoy.

There's a track by Consequence feat. Kanye & John Legend that is FIIIIRE! It's called "What You Want", and it's kinda catchy. Anyway, I posted a clip of this track a while back, but the video finally came out...and I'm glad to see Ye back to work! The video's pretty dope, of course, but due to YouTube disabling the embedding on the video, here's the link. Enjoy.

Ok, so I suck at updating often, but whatev, I've been busy...and kinda lazy I guess.
Anyway, I've had a lot going on with work, but I will nonetheless be releasing a single on iTunes next week! We're pretty hyped about that...by "we", I mean Diversatile, my group...which consists of Acin, Morelli (myself), and DJ Trace 1NE. The single is called "I Get Real", and is a direct shot at all that trendy/pop hip hop shit on the radio over the past couple of years. The track was recorded back in '07, but it's incredible how it still applies today. With more and more wack ass rappers and groups coming out, this song will hopefully be part of the new movement of real hip hop making its way back to the surface. We'll see how it goes, but regardless, we're hyped about it...as it's been a LONG time coming...and we fuckin' deserve it! Real talk! Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging at all, but the track is fire! Both Acin's and myself spit a verse about keeping it real in the hip hop game, and in general. We were planning on releasing an EP of 5 or 6 tracks that we have done, but we decided to drop a single now to get the ball rolling at least. We're planning to drop a 2nd single shortly after the release of "I Get Real", so I'll keep y'all posted. Either way, it should be a great way to end the year...and begin 2010, for that matter.
On a separate note, my DJ group, G-Factor, will be spinning at Moonchine in Miami this Saturday, from 8-9:30pm. We're pretty hyped about that as well. I'm pretty much sick of having to work and not being able to pay some bills off quick...so yea, we're trying to be even more aggressive about making it in this fucked up business. It is what it is, so we just gotta stay focused and on point with our shit.
