“I give a shit what you think of my life, hitting up every wife, cause we all up on strife.”
Given that essentially all of my followers have extremely good taste in music (your recommendations are always top notch), I’m going to start allowing follower submitted music reviews. So if you come across a song that’s randomly the greatest thing you’ve heard in a while or an old time favorite of yours that no one knows about, and you feel obligated to share it with the masses, just submit the song along with a brief well worded review. All you need to make sure of is that it meets a high standard of writing. If you are a colorful writer and have a blatantly good ear for hip-hop, I won’t have any trouble posting multiple of your reviews, in case you decide submitting your favorite music will become an ongoing thing.
It’ll also have to be in youtube format, so make sure the video can go at least to 480 in resolution, since anything less really takes away from the sound quality.
If I get any above average submissions today, I’ll definitely be posting them later tonight.
I had a few friends running in the Boston Marathon today. Thankfully they escaped unharmed. If you haven’t heard yet, 3 bombs went off today at the marathon. The 3rd one exploded only an hour ago.
NPR - Rapper Homeboy Sandman overcoming the odds
Without exaggeration this is greatest hip-hop related story I’ve ever heard, and it’s a must listen for everyone who understands the kinds of risks and sacrifices musicians need to take. I’ve been a fan of Homeboy Sandman for many years, but I never knew about this crazy/inspiring tale. It also really helps that he’s a damn good story teller.
My favorite song by Homeboy Sandman is Calm Tornado, which you should click if you want to read my review for it.

Nitty Scott MC - Bullshit Rap
There are numerous dope female hip-hop artists on the rise that definitely boast a lot of talent. Don’t sleep on them. Women in hip-hop who aren’t spitting bullshit need more support than ever now, so turn off that damn Nicki Minaj and listen to some real music.
