Maybe It's Just Me ...

But I really feel Kanye's new cd. "See You in My Nightmares" and "Heartless" are two great songs in my book, but other people have been putting off the cd. Why?
Listen to his track "See You in My Nightmares" ... And Tell Everybody That You Know ...SEE YOU IN MY NIGHTMARES - KANYE WEST FT LIL WAYNE

Thats Nasty (in the bad way)

The Dedication 3 is horrible. Point blank. The cd features too many different rappers from Cash Money, and Lil Wayne barely raps on the cd. If you really listen to music, you must admit that this cd is not acceptable. I am not a Lil Wayne fan by any means now, but even I will admit that the Dedication 2 was a classic. I consider that the turning point in Wayne's rap style. To me, it went downhill from there ... Judge for your self

Heartbreaks and Endings ...

Kanye West ... Lupe Fiasco ... the best rappers in my eyes are both planning releases of new albums. Kanye's is to be labeled "808's and Heartbreaks," while Lupe's will be titled "L-U-P end." More details coming soon on Lupe's album(which is said to be his last), but Yeezy's drops on November 25th. He pushed the date from December 16th in order for his music to be "Heard as soon as possible." Leading the way is his single "Love Lockdown" which was first seen at the VMA's where he performed it live. On the cd, there is also a track dedicated to his mother which I can't wait to hear. This cd will be like no other considering he has labeled it pop and created the whole thing using Auto-tune (voice changer software aka T-Pain effect).

Philly ... home of the cheesesteak, liberty bell and black panther?

In Philadelphia on election day, Black Panthers were seen at numerous areas in Philly "guarding" voting places. I don't believe this was a necessary move my brothas. It attracted attention to something pointless. So this goes out to you my Black Panther brothas:
Dear Brothermen Who Weren't Thinking,
The presence of Obama does not need to be accompanied by questionable actions like this. Drop the paranoia for one second and realize that this is not 1968 and we don't need troops protecting our right to vote. Obama would have clearly won Philadelphia without your help, seeing as how you can't even find a republican in Philly. I should know. I'm from West Philly! So, next election use your heads and put the batons away.
P.S. Dont ever embarrass my city like that again


Check your new editions of history textbooks for this quote from the new president of The United States, Mr. Barack Obama. It was taken from his first address after being declared the winner in Chicago's own, Grant Park. Obama won decisively over McCain and proved that he wasn't only supported by college kids and black people. As a black man, I am proud of my heritage everyday. However, tonight takes the cake my friends. On my campus in New York (St.John'sUniversity), there is a diverse mixture of students. You have people everywhere from California to the Virgin Islands celebrating amongst each other. I've never seen people from every walk of life together as one for the same cause. In a time filled with hard-times and sorrow, you can now put away your tears of pain and replace them with tears of hope and change ...

This is the moment we have been waiting for ... Get Out There and Vote ... Make Your Voice Heard

Tupac speaks on Obama?

"Although it seems heaven sent,
We ain't ready to see a black president"
Changes by Tupac Shakur
What do you think Tupac would say about Barack Obama?
Barack Obama's message this election has been,"Change You Can Believe In." Isn't it ironic that a similar titled song from Tupac contains a different message?

Laugh Out Loud if you see these on the street

This weeks worst sneaker of the week award goes to ... (drum roll please) ... A NIKE release? The NIKE JACK WOOL SOAKERS are the worst "thing" that NIKE has ever created. They look like duck boots, ACG's and "wtf" mixed into one shoe. I dont wear NIKE, and this just pushed me further away. If you like these, you must be:
3.John McCain

New Blazers on da Block

The NIKE SB BLAZER X Lance Mountain is here. Designed by no other than skateboarder Lance Mountain, these blazers go right with the Halloween mood for this time of year.

Election 08 ... OBAMA? McCain? Who has your vote?

Let's be serious, OBAMA should have your only vote for president next Tuesday. McCain and Palin (aka Maverick and Barracuda) are not whats best for our country. Don't vote for OBAMA because he's black, or even because he is a captivating speaker. Do it for the future my friends ...

A Nightmare for a DreamGirl

Yes the spotlight is on Jennifer Hudson, but not for a good reason. Her mother ... brother ... and nephew ... all murdered. A sad time indeed ... We all feel for you

Cold Weather is here ... Pull Out ... The Northface?

I must I am not a fan of North Face clothing. However, that doesn't stop others from bundling up with their latest and greatest. North Face is a trend of New Yorkers and D.C heads staying away from my hometown of Philly. It is sold in Philly, but not very popular compared to other areas. I am not putting down North Face fans ... who knows, I might cop a coat soon enough.

Paper Trail is Real ... Better than Carter 3?

I believe so. Maybe its because I am not a fan of Lil Wayne, but it could just be the fact that Paper Trail has more quality than Da Carter 3. We could sit and compare songs off of both cds for hours, but I will simply do three.
1. Swagga Like Us vs. A Milli
2. Live Your Life feat Rihanna vs. Got Money feat T-Pain
3. Whatever You Like vs. Lollipop
When you compare the songs throw ya personal favorite out the window and really listen to the songs.

I See You Philly and NY

I might not feel the D.C dances, but you gotta love Philly and New York stuff. D Mac and Get Lite, whas better?

No-No for Go-Go ...

Im sorry D.C but I do not respect go-go music at all or the "beating yo feet". It sounds like a group of people banging on trash cans and stop signs. This is not whas poppin ... Yall can judge for yourself tho ...


What you thought I only did kicks? If you like to be the only person wearing something, check out the Ironfist clothing label. Many people do not know about this artistic label that blesses the world with exclusive clothing. Although they showcase everything from jackets to cardigans, I would recommend sticking to their t-shirts and hoodies which display the best products of the company. Here is the website to Ironfist ... Show Love!

Did someone order a double flopper with cheese? WORST SNEAKER OF THE WEEK AWARD ...

This weeks worst sneaker award goes to ... (drum roll please) ... The new release by K-Swiss! I know I know, who wears them anyway right? But the reason I chose these particular sneakers for the week is the fact K-Swiss would have the audacity (nice word) to create something like this. Unless you are Kanye West and can make anything look acceptable, these sneakers are not for you. This is a promise, if I see anyone wearing these in the street, you will be shot. Then shot again.

Imports R' Us

Don't get ya' hopes up about being the first one on the block with these. These NIKE Terminators don't have a MADE in U.S.A stamp on them. Ladies and gentlemen these are Tokyo exclusive and can only be grabbed at the NIKE Sportswear Store in Tokyo. This shoe not only is ill, but also kicks off the store's opening which will be NIKE's only store in Asia. It opens October 11th, but unless you have frequent flier miles or a nice hook-up with Yao Ming; chalk it up my friend.

Welcome To UrbCoNNecT!
