This trailer for the upcoming ThunderCats reboot is #winning. As long as Panthro still sounds like a soul brother, I’m good.
Congrats to Meek Mill, Big K.R.I.T., CyHi Da Prince, Lil Twist, Yelawolf, Fred the Godson, Mac Miller, YG, Lil B, Kendrick Lamar and Diggy Simmons.
R.A.G.U. (Raekwon and Ghostface United) dropped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform the Chef’s lead single, “Rock ‘N Roll,” from that Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, in stores March 8. Guess Jim Jones was AWOL. “Never rock skinny jeans I’m way above…” [Peeped at Rap Radar via HipHopStan]
Remember when ODB and Black Thought looked like they were about to throw the fives on stage? Can’t find that video at all. But Black Thought recently dropped standout verses on Ghostface’s Apollo Kids album and on Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, so it’s all good.
“The street raised me up giving a fxck, I thought Jordans and a gold chain was living it up.”—Nas “Street Dreams”
On “Jordans & A Gold Chain” ATL rapper on the come up Tez McClain spits a couple of verses about some of the fundamentals needed to stunt. Obviously, my affinitity is for the Air Jordan shouts in rhyme. Give Tez a shot (Don Cannon likes him), he’s got bars. L.T. Moe ((Ludacris, Ghostface, Murs) on the beat, Jordan 3s makes the cipher complete. [Props to the homie Branden J. Peters]
#1. “I’m over here trying to clean my sneakers. I can’t concentrate. All this fighting…like, they’re talking about f**king relationships, my sneakers are dirty!”—Pauly D
#2. Pauly D, of The Jersey Shore infamy, is using Formula 409 to clean his kicks.
Salute that man.
How To Dress Like The Situation & Pauly D From Jersey Shore [Complex]
Raekwon spittin’ that surgical glove flow in the clip for the title track from his fifth solo album, Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang. Due in stores March 8th.
The movie Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang (see the clip below) is a dope flick. If you’re up on the lore, you’ll know that Wu-Tang split from Shaolin, thus they are really one in the same. Get it? Nah? Read it in my book.
Check my review of the album in the April 2011 issue of XXL Magazine when it drops. Thumbs up.
Watch. Respect. Happy Birthday J. Dilla. [Spotted at Frank’s Spot]
The last time I was a New York Knicks fans, Gerald Wilkins was their starting shooting guard. That said, #21 repped Nike’s “Flight” line of basketball kicks and his commercials usually displayed the fact that like his brother Dominique, Gerald had serious hops. The above commercial for the Air Flight Lite, at the time (1991) the “lightest Nike basketball shoe on earth.” The point of this background is to now point out that dude that takes a serious L in the aformentioned commercial is none other than Bob Einstein aka Super Dave Osborne aka Marty Funkhouser from Curb Your Enthusiasm. How great is that?
