That's right. The lady above talking about dog-sledding and college basketball is none other than Alaska Governor and John McCain's teammate Sarah Palin. This video is golden. It's the biggest leaked video since Washington DC's mayor did crack with a couple of hookers.

A very low-quality version of this video was leaked like a year ago. It was displayed at a Takashi Murakami exhibit a little less than a year ago. At the time, I assumed it would be a one-time-only thing, but Kanye just dropped a high quality version. Right now, it can only be found on iTunes, but you and I both know the full version will be available to everyone by the end of the week. Good Morning marks the seventh video 'Ye has made from Graduation, and that's pretty much unheard of.
The thing about Kanye videos that I like above those of other artists' is the uniqueness. 98.46% of Hip Hop video have a cookie cutter formula: hot chicks, drinks, entourage, club or party scene, women all over the MC, and maybe, if we're lucky, a geeky, pasty, no-rhythm-having white dude trying to fit in. Oh, and the white guy also is wearing clothes way too small for him. But not Mr. West's videos. Look at the seven that have been released with Graduation: Kanye in a desert (which sucked, I admit), A Japanese anime style video with Kanye in a mental institute, a D.A.N.C.E.-inspired video, Kanye getting murdered by Rita G, a black-and-white tribute to Chicago with a sometimes transparent Chris Martin, A Jim Henson version of Yeezy competing in the 100-meter dash, and now a cartoon.
LT is legit. Kimbo? I am not sold on the toughest porn company bodyguard in Miami, but he is scary looking, which is what Nike undoubtedly looked for in this ad. I would never, ever test Kimbo, but he gets way more pub than he has earned. What's his MMA record? 3-0. Why didn't the Chuck Liddell-beating Rampage Jackson ever get a NIKE ad. Then again, Rampage never did this.

Sorry I haven't made an update in a couple of days, I've been busy moving. There are a lot of big things that have gone down in the last few days. I'm not going to pretend like nothing happened, I'm not George Bush and this isn't New Orleans. At the same time, I'm not going to dedicate a bunch of posts to stuff a few days old (which is months in blog-time). Here is everything worth noting, basically a time capsule of the last few days.
- Kanye + Jay Z + T.I. + Lil Wayne = Crazy Delicious
- John Legend and 3 Stacks made a somewhat generic-yet-fresh music video. By the way, Green Light is the best song of August.
- Usain Bolt did it big. Not Michael Phelps-big, but still.
- The Cool Kids- Delivery Man. I don't have much to say about this, just add it to your collection if you haven't already.
- Are Cassie and Lil Wayne officially doing the nasty? This is kind of like when Iron Mike and Robin Givens got together. Every average-looking man across the United States is jealous.
- My Chicago Cubs keep rolling. 1908 and 2008... both championship years? Don't count them out. Actually, it depends on which Carlos Zambrano shows up in October.

This guy was a salesman and it shows. At times, this video seems a little over dramatic. But, at its heart, there is a good point. There aren't enough true music collectors. The fact that this guy has 1,000,000 vinyls (all the zeroes were used to show just how big a number that is) is astonishing. If I had $3 million to blow, I'd swoop up and make that purchase. Somewhere, Pete Rock is checking how much money he has in the bank.
Here's DC's great hope and Mr. Famous Stars and Straps in the studio working on a track for Wale's upcoming debut album, which can't come soon enough. If you haven't heard it, Barker and The Game's Collabo- Dope Boys- is beautiful. The best part of the above video is watching Barker go hard on his drums, it's nasty.

Heres a newly leaked track off of DJ-and i use that term extremely lightly-Khaled's new album, We Global Now. No comment. Notice how i didn't mention Khaled's name in the headline due to him serving absolutely no purpose in this song, along with his other rap endeavors. In essence, DJ Khaled is the Jackie Moon of the Rap World, a promoter to say the least. I almost pulled the plug after hearing obnoxious shouts via Khaled exclaiming, "I'm goin' in!" repeatedly, but had a change of heart when Yeezy followed those remarks. Quite frankly, i don't know what to think of this joint as of yet, so for the 4 people that read this blog feel free to drop some feedback on me.
Get it here
*Update: The only reason i posted this track is soley because of 'Ye, and i am in no way shape or form a patron of ANY music T-Painful and "DJ" Khaled are associated with
The men's USA basketball squad laid the hammer on Dirk and his fellow sorry-ass Deuches today, finsihing 5-0 in its pool. Talk about having something to prove; the dudes repping the stars and stripes are averaging 103 PPG and a 32-point margin of victory. After the game, Lebron was interviewed by the eccentric Craig Sager, and admitted the team is still playing with a chip on its shoulder, which is just what its nation wants to hear. F*ck Ric Bucher and all those analysts hating on the boys in red white and blue. This gold is in the bag
Bonus: Peep Lebron and Kobe acting like little kids while cheering on their boy here

Oklahoma Frehman Kicked Off The Team For Rapping About Shooting People And Sticking His Penis In A Girl's Mouth
Josh Jarobe was a four-star wide recievr out of Ellenwood, Ga. A month ago, Jarobe got arrested for bring a loaded gun to school, just for show. I would like to say this is a typical move by a college program, dropping a player to make themselves look good, but they were in the right on this one. The kid's clearly an idiot for bringing a gun to school.
As for the above video, the kid made a huge mistake because A) he clearly sucks at rapping and B) this was ONE MONTH after bringing a gun to his school. At the same time, I don't know how I feel about a program dismissing a player on the basis of a YouTube video. Just because someone raps about something doesn't mean they are actually going to do it. A couple years back, University of Miami players got in hot water for recording a song about gang-banging. Do you honestly think those guys had gang-banged some chicks in Miami? Don't answer that.
As for where Jarboe can go from here, I'd suggest he go to Jacksonville State. It's where former number-one high school quarterback Ryan Perrilloux is. Imagine those guys playing 1-AA ball. Defensive backs, beware.
This is why I hate it when people make fun of Michael Jackson. Yeah, the dude is frakin' weird, but he's also the top performer music has seen (at least, the best solo performer). Every time I watch his old videos, I can't help but think about what could have been. If he hadn't gone off the plastic surgery/hold your baby over the balcony wire, he'd have made like 5 more Thriller-esque albums. Oh well, I blame Joe Jackson for verbally abusing him when he was a boy. If you want to skip to the best part, go to the 3:30 mark and watch the best 23 seconds of live performance you will ever see.

So the American women's gymnastics team kind of choked and lost to China. It was pretty much a result of this girl falling twice, and the lady conducting the interview would not let her forget it. By the way, gymnastics is some pretty crazy ish. It's the best thing in the Olympics not named Michael Phelps.

Kanye West "Champion Video" Official Directed by NEON from nabil elderkin on Vimeo.
People try to tell me that Graduation wasn't a great body of work. While I don't put it on the same level as The College Dropout and Late Registration, this is his sixth single off the 13-track album. What album has done that, regardless of genre, in the last few years. That's a measure of greatness. And yes, I don't care that I'm pole-jockin'.

They're all tiny, minute long works of art, that pull at you like flesh-eating zombies. Here's the first example:
How bout a Redeem Team mash-up with Marvin Gaye at the '83 All-Star Game...
Though I must say, the 4x100m relay the US team took last night over those annoying French, was one of those moments in life I will always remember.

I hate to keep posting on a somber note, but this is another big passing from the world of entertainment. Man was a legend in the soul genre, shaping the game for many of the soul and R&B singers of today.
Most of us will remember him for his role as Chef on South Park, with his catchy songs on how to lay women down by the fire and his chocolate salty balls.
RIP Chef. Thanks for laughs and the songs.

BLUEPRINT 3 from kwest on Vimeo.
Blueprint III coming soon, and by soon I mean by the end of 2009. Some people say Jay-Z is too old and past his prime, but musicians don't lose their skills with age. It's not like they're athletes, no matter what everyone else says, Jay-Z is not Jordan on the Wizards or Favre on the Packers. Johnny Cash recorded music with Rick Rubin until he died, so I bet Jay-Z will be MCing until 2057.

So I found that preview for the music video, then the actual video drops the same day. I can't explain how lucky that was. The video consists of a lot of arcade sequences and even more Star Trak signs. It's also kind of quiet because it's a bootleg off that ignorant show 106 & Park.
Sometimes great speeches don't have to be eloquently spoken, they just have to be passionate. This video is a perfect example. The guy doesn't have a whole lot to say, but he says it with so much pride that you know it's close to his heart. People always talk about how no sport has the passion of European soccer, but I would like to argue on behalf of college football. Yeah, maybe fans aren't quite as violent, but they are definitely as drunk, especially in the SEC. College football gets started in about three weeks, which can't come soon enough, for me or this Alabama fan.
Here's Kanye closing out the concert with his words of wisdom. He did this at every concert, but he was more open in New York. He discusses Nas' new album, Soulja Boy- who he respects for some odd reason-, and being called a fag.
Here's him performing "Put On" sans Jeezy. He even throws in an extra verse.

Tell me this isn't the funniest thing to come out of the whole Brett Favre controversy. I guess he's officially back and Hitler is going to be happy. The film is called Downfall. You might need to pause the movie occasionally to read the subtitles. Unless, of course, you are a really, really, really fast reader.

It was designed by NetsForce, a graphic designer I found on the RealGM GFX Forums. The man does great work on everything he puts his mind to.
On behalf of everyone from The Boogie, thanks for your work.

Rehearsal Space: A-Trak from videos222 on Vimeo.
He's the dude who, until the Glow In The Dark Tour, rocked out during all of Kanye's show. DJ scratchin supposedly died a good fifteen years ago, but A-Trak is dope. Actually, all good scratchers are tight. A-Trak is a canuck but I'll that slide. His brother is the lead singer for the band Chromeo.
Oh, and my favorite part of that video is the zoom-in on the old lady at 0:47. Lol
