Before heading to an Asher Roth (plus-and i cringe when i say this-All American Rejects, Fall Out Boy, and Blink 182) concert, I thought it'd be a good idea to listen to some goodies via the kid from PA. While searching in my iTunes library, i found this gem from a while back.
It's still odd the two didn't collaborate after this display of music fusion shown above.

Indie Rock= The New Hip-Hop
Sorry, but hip-hop has been too mainstream, and somewhere along the lines it lost its soul. The aesthetic hip-hop once stood for can now be seen at an MGMT or Vampire Weekend concert. To hip-hop diehards (R.I.P. Gonzo), I'm sorry. Sometimes the truth hurts. For fans of indie rock, the torch has officially been past.

After leaving his life long pals at Lakai, Eric Koston is now the newest member of the Nike SB squad (if you weren't already aware from that P-Rod TV Spot). Above is set to be his first shoe he'll drop since inking his name.
The kicks are to be released in the next couple of months.

I've been providing all 340,000 daily visitors with some fantastic '80s baby-making jams. Well, it's all been building to this. This is the preeminent power-love jam, in my high opinion. If your girlfriend's name is Jessie, this song is kind of dirty, but in a good way. The only time I wouldn't play this bad boy would be if your girlfriend and you have a mutual friend named Jessie who has a smokin' hot girlfriend. That will not end well for anybody.

It's time for some Lionel. He's the guy your parents listened to while doing the dirty-- and if that doesn't make you horny, nothing will. This video is both innovative and mind-blowing. How the hell did Lionel get on those walls and, eventually, the ceiling? Is he a devil worshiper? Does that explain Nicole Ritchie's existence?

I swear to God... i've called BS's past two singles. If you haven't caught either Finally Famous or UKNOWBIGSEAN, you need to do as the song says. But honestly, Million Dollars and Getcha Some are some dope ass records, especially those coming from Sean, whose Studio Album doesn't even have a release date yet (I'm just assuming). Anywho, this video is the dopest i've seen in an oober long time. And most importantly, Kanye is back except way more fresher...
Oh and I'm also assuming this is So-Me's work?
Also peep Big Sean's (almost) self-titled blog. Extra G.O.O.D

What can I say? No band utilizes technology like The Cars. The part where they rock out on top of that bar of soap? Classic. The part where the lead singer became a bee? Thought provoking. The part where he removes his face and a bunch of water pours out? Fantastic.

Here we go on day 2 of project "Let's Class this Shit Up." Today, I bring you a nice live performance of Invisible Touch (I've always had a theory this song is about handjobs) by Genesis in 1992.
Look at Phil Collins rock out! If you aren't familiar with Collins' work, I highly suggest the Tarzan soundtrack as a reference point ('Cause you'll be in my heart/Yes, you'll be in my heart/From this day on/Now and forever more). If you are questioning Phil Collins as a certified bad-ass, you need to see his first album cover. In the words of Patton Oswalt: "He's pretty fuckin' dark man. Look at him. HE'S WEARING SNEAKERS WITH A SUIT!"

While everyone else has been busy popping boners to Best I Ever Had, I've been busy scouring the information super-highway to find the best music videos from a little time period i like to call the GREATEST TIME IN MUSIC HISTORY (some of you less intelligent people refer to it as the '80s.)
So, without further procrastination, open your ears up to the genre of synth-pop bitch! This video muight be a little surreal for you (where the hell did those instruments come from at the begining?), but trust me. You put this song on when you've got a girl in your dorm room and IT IS ON.

There's not much to this story other than the fact that Shaq has been blowing up UFC Prez Dana White's phone saying that he wants to fight the undisputed heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar.
"Shaq texts and Twitters me all the time saying he wants to fight Brock Lesnar. He's been training for 10 years; Shaq's probably the only dude in the NBA that can actually fight ... I told Shaq, I said listen, 'Win another NBA championship this year and then we'll talk next year.''I'd watch it, maybe not pay for it, but I'd sure as hell watch it.

I'm not trying to rip your achievement, Kobe, don't worry about that, but what I am trying to say is cherish this ring because it might be your last. Same goes for you, Mr. Jackson.
The competition in the NBA has arrived. It comes in forms of royalty, superheroes and guys chosen after Darko. The East is something to be reckoned with again, we (in reference to me being a Nets fan) aren't the JV league anymore. The talent pool in both conferences is deeper than ever, and we all know what 2010 might bring.
Kobe, I think you've got one season left before your venom is rendered sterile and the Black Mamba goes out of commission. Let the rumors swirl about how happy you may be in LA, maybe a change of scenery will do you good.
I'll throw this out there, too: you may want to try and keep Bynum healthy, because a certain big man you may be familiar with might just make one last stop in Cleveland to help that other puppet win a ring next year.
Anywho, congratulations to the 2008-09 Los Angeles Lakers on a tremendous season and terrific run to the championship... maybe Adam Morrison can be creepy on the court for you next time.

- He got punched in the mouth by a chick during a battle.
- People laughed, and he came through with no response.
- His album art was leaked, and he credited J Dilla as an executive producer, despite having no relationship with the Yancey family, whatsoever.
- Now DJ House Shoes (a good friend of the Yancey family and staunch rep-man for Detroit) is going off on the pink-clad rapper.
Do yourself a favor, Chuck: Get out while you can.

Yes-- above is a "preview" of the upcoming Toy Story 3 (?!?@?#@$!). Don't soil yourself just yet... the movie comes out in June of next year. Even the teaser is ill! Honestly, has Pixar done any of it's loyal audiences wrong?! Let's ponder some of their most recent works to date (the studio was conceived in '95 i believe): Both Toy Storys (dopeee), Monsters Inc.(brilliant!), Finding Nemo (brilliant!), The Incredibles (brilliant!), and their very latest Up which was dopeeeeee-- especially in 3D. And let's not forget Disney's signature heart warming music numbers.
Pixar is like Bad Boy Records during the Mase, Biggie, and Puffy era... "can't stop...won't stop..."

Find more videos like this on Street Dreams Movie
Been waiting on this flick for a minute now. This movie at first glance looks like the skateboarding version of Crossover, with a few more renowned actors/athletes added to the cast and minus the soap opera tone, but lets hope its not.
The film stars P-Rod and features Rob Dyrdek, Ryan Dunn, Ryan Sheckler and TK Fly AKA Compton Ass Terry AKA Terry Kennedy.
Due out this spring.

Kanye has been hyping up Mr. Hudson for a minute now, and I think this joint may justify the plethora of praise for the newest G.O.O.D. affiliate. Yeezy nails the hook and the Hudson/'Ye collabos (don't forget Paranoid) are a really good look. 'Ye even cops the British accent for a minute.
Mr. Hudson is the best thing to assimilate to the U.S. since the Spice Girls... yeah he's that big.

Here is Ms. La La, AKA the voice of reason in all those Flavor of Love reunions, going ape-sh** after being kicked out of last night's Nuggets-Mavericks game. The game was in Dallas, where her 4-year fiancee Carmelo Anthony and Co. failed to sweep the Mavericks. I guess she and the two confused-looking/older-looking."wiser"-looking women got into a heated argument. This is not a good look for her.
Another point: why have they been engaged for 4-years? Shouldn't their be a limit on how long you are engaged. If you have been engaged more than 2 years, you either have to do a shotgun wedding in Vegas or call the whole thing off because one of you does not really want to get married.

Two words: United States, no love, no brakes...
Here is an interview from Artest after being ejected last night against the Lakers. The man has seen a teammate die on the court after being stabbed through the heart with a table leg! A TABLE LEG! Someone seriously needs to make an Artest documentary where he just sits there and fields questions Dirt McGirt-style. I would play money for that. Keep it coming Ron. The NBA... where table-leg-stabbing stories happen!

Look how jittery he is. Plus, he says Brandon Roy (no relation to Patrick) is better than Kobe and LeBron. To add, he talks about how one of his friends in jail is better than almost the entire NBA. Any time I need to go get quotes on anything (global warming, the stockmarket, swine flu, Stan Van Gundy's resemblence to Ron Jeremy, the war in Iraq, the latest episode of Gossip Girl, the best toothpaste, whether or not Keanu Reaves is gay, how to spell Keanu Reeves, the dual between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, how much steroids Triple-H does on the daily, the underlying masculine motifs of Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart, whether or not Tupac is still alive, the odds of success for a Macaulay Culkin-Michael Jackson film in which the ambiguously gay duo portray Lewis and Clark) I'm going to Ron Artest. He has replaced the Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P.) as most quotable celebrity.

The interview at the end has me a little pissed. I really thought gay-fish Kanye was gonna calm down, then comes this b-word from 106 & Park (don't watch the show... the internet has made it obsolete) who tries her hardest to bring out cocky-Kanye. Also, does anyboy notice how shaky Mr. West looks during the interview? Whatever he's taking, give me some of that! Either that, or the 106 & Park stage is like Letterman's in that they make their guests freezing so they'll be alert.
PS: sorry for calling that lady a b-word. I actually think she is a nice-looking female, but she sounds a little to... shall I say "hood?"... for me.

For some reason, WHATEVER REASON, there are a slew of nasty sports documentaries coming out soon. Along with this, I will be seeing Tyson (out the Friday) and the new Kobe Bryant-Spike Lee project. I don't know if this lives up to hoop dreams, but I'm excited.
Click here to get Cudi's newest mixtape. It has all the songs you know and love by him, including I Poke Her Face, Buggin Out '09 and Sky Might Fall. Personally, I like Cudi most of the time but think it's more about the people around him- the people making beats- that make him great. I'm still not 100% on Cudi. Don't worry, I'll probably convert soon enough.

Via Contact Music:
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and rapper LUPE FIASCO have been recruited by pop singer KENNA to climb Mount Kilimanjaro this autumn (09) in a bid to raise money for charity.
The trio will be joined by a team of adventurers assembled by Ethiopian-born Kenna as they scale the 19,000-foot (5,890 metre) African peak as part of a fundraising and awareness effort for the worldwide water crisis.
The mammoth climb will serve as a personal triumph for Out of Control hitmaker Kenna, who almost lost his father to the water shortage.
He tells America's Elle magazine, "My dad almost died as a child from waterborne diseases in Ethiopia, and he had talked to me about digging a well there, and I thought, 'I have too many friends who would be concerned with the subject of clean water. Maybe I can help out.'"
And Fiasco insists he's ready for the challenge, which he plans to turn into a fun race with his pal: "I'm an adventure junkie. Part of the motivation is beating Kenna to the top. Sabotaging his tent, taking the lining out of his coat, lacing it with ants or something like that."

1) Albums from first time artists. If I'm going to pay money for an album, considering how easy it is to get an album for free, I want to know it's going to be good. That's why an artist has to prove his merit. Some guys can come out with awesome mixtapes and not translate to album artists. However, I will go back and buy a rookie album after the fact if the artist turns out to be an artist I want to support (example: Food & Liquor, College Dropout). I should note that I will be breaking this rule next week when I buy Asleep in the Bread Isle.
2) Artists that are down with giving away their album for free. This one is pretty self explanatory. If Radiohead is giving away In Rainbows for nothing, I'm not going to pay money. It's basic economics, really. The thinking with these albums is that the band will make it's fans love them and pay to see them live or support them later. This is the Lil Wayne Ideology.
3) History lessons. If you want to go back 10 years to learn about hip-hop's roots, go ahead. And don't bother paying. We all know the odds of you going to a record store and asking for a Eric B & Rakim album is unrealistic. Example, I went to a Best Buy a couple months back to buy De La Soul's 3 Feet High & Rising. I wanted to support what is one of the most fun albums, regardless of genre, of the last 20 years. When I couldn't find the album, I asked the Best Buy employee for help. When I told him which album I wanted, he looked at me like I was wearing girl jeans. He pretty much said nobody buys old school hip hop albums. I mean, I could have bought the album on iTunes, but what's the point? I like buying an album and getting a hard copy with an album cover and everything.
You can make your own rules, but make sure you support music to a certain extent, be it buying every album or buying no albums and going to see artists live.

Officer Ricky is back. After 'Ye (ill-advisedly) gave viewers a preview of his verse off this Carol City residers own track on 106 and Park LIVE, we finally are blessed with the studio version -which also features Pain and the reincarnated Kurt Cobain. Not sure as of what Ross intends to do with this track, as his current single is Usual Suspects. Regardless, this is an ill-track that you can bump to... no matter your means of auto-transportation.

This is another album you need to have, if you haven't jumped on it yet. Not just for I'm on a Boat and Dick in a Box, but for the lesser-known-but-possibly-funnier songs like Natalie Portman's Rap, We Like Sportz and Dreamgirl.
Get Incredibad here.

The Nike SB Dunk Lo Gibson. Yeah, I went there.
Other than this featured remnant, nothing (affordable) really caught my attention.
And since we kinda do feature music quite a lot on this thing, I thought I'd share with you what I got going on inside the headphones:
-Buncha Ryan Leslie... Next Selection Stand Up... that means you Cassie
-I'm the Shit Remix feat. Yeezy... Good luck coping those kicks today
-The Knux- Remind Me in 3 Days... Shouts to Nola
-Lady Gaga... Woops! Is that bad?
-Basically anything G.O.O.D.
Anyways, its getting kinda late, in the East Coast at least. Get at yall later...

ECap City is a hat lovers haven; with so many one-off colorways it makes your head hurt.
I could spend a couple thousand from this site and not feel guilty at all.

OK. So we've pretty much decided to take the entire month of March off (with the exception of Atari- thanks man). I guess it has something to do with Spring Break and March Madness being in back-to-back weeks. Now that my bracket has been crushed like Apollo Creed vs. Ivan Drago, I guess I can get back to making some posts.
I know this is like a day old (at least the good quality version), but it is the best song I've heard this entire year. THIS ENTIRE YEAR!

Almost a year ago I made a post about an upcoming Family Guy spin-off called 'The Cleveland Show' featuring everyone's favorite black deli owner, Cleveland Brown. It's still going through the motions of being finished, but its on the way. But, that's not why I'm posting about the show.
Kanye West will add yet another name to his long list of aliases by guest starring in the show, playing a failed rapper named (stick with me here), Kenny West.
I really shouldn't be surprised about this, yet I am. Ye never fails to amaze.

So, everyone's favorite martian, Kid CuDi, has already come out and said that his first album, Man on the Moon: The Guardians, will also be his last album. He cites that friends and family have noticed a change in his demeanor since gaining notoriety in the business, and doesn't want to hear rumors spread or have his reputation suffer.

This may very well be The Dream's first appearance here at the Boog, so here goes nothing. The Radio Killa/R&B Gorilla takes some leisure time from ghostwriting hits to putting together (once again, here goes nothing) a masterpiece. The Dream hooked up with Tricky Stewart in the beat laboratory to produce 14 bangers/bedroom jams. Thats right; The Dream-born Terius Nash-follows in the same route as Boog favorite 88-Keys, as he presents his premise clearly throughout the album. Dude likes sex, regardless if its in the VIP or not. LOL. Smart choice.
The obvious standout joints are Rocking That Sh*t and the Yeezy featured Walkin' on the Moon, but the album has something for everyone. Or at least something for the bedroom.

Ye's (gratefully) ephermal mullet is gone... for now. Above is Yeezy- featured with his most recent dime-piece Amber, who has been ubiquitous in photos of Kanye's fashion show endeavors as of recent-minus that horrid cut. BTW, notice 'Ye sporting the New Balance sneaks and surprisingly not his Louis Vs or his Aqua 8's.
To reiterate on what homie Siempre threw at yall bout his Story Tellers spot, shit was soooo dope. Bow in the presence of greatness lol Just gonna mention some of the highlights of the show, for me at least:
- Ye finally addressing 50! In case you missed Curtis' recent shot at Yeezy, check that here. No matter how awkward of an acknowledgement it was via Kanye, I'm glad to know he's not shying away from any beef.
-The opening of the set with "See You In My Nightmares" (minus Wayne) was so ill. Shit got me chills right off the bat.
-The sometimes awkward and baffling freestyles that were spit via Martin Louis the King, no matter how dumb he sounded. I loved the emotion and passion Yeezy displayed for this set.
-Lastly, his words on the doctor who performed the surgery on his mother, the great Dr. Donda West. Emotions definitely flared throughout the whole show.
In the words of Siempre, the set 'Ye put on for the folks of VH1 and music audiences in general was truly a blessing. I'm already vigilantly awaiting ANY more pieces to the puzzle of Kanye's alleged tour, "Ye Vs. The Volcano." I'm sure a doppeeee follow up to the GITDT awaits us
Meanwhile, I'll just bump out the live performances that the LV Don blessed us with in my car- with a conglomeration of some Drake joints-until something of this monumental quality comes across us.
Anybody able to catch Kanye's Storytellers on VH1 was blessed. Lyrically, Kanye has been slacking a little. But for an overall music feel, the concert was everything I love about Kanye. There was guitars, an 808-drummed up version of Stronger, and a Kanye mullet (two out of three isn't too bad).
The entire time I was watching it, I kept telling my friend how tight an album of this would be. Well, ILLroots has me covered.

Maurice Clarett, former Ohio State star and current inmate, has been blogging from prison for quite some time apparently. I love it. I urge anyone who reads this (yes, all 31 of you) to check out his blog as much as possible. I;m going to add it to The Boogie's blog roll as soon as I post this.
I would like to see everyone leaving comments on Clarett's blog. Why? I'm sure the man's bored to death. Plus, it would be hilarious if Clarett's blog grew more popular than some of the celeb blogs out there. Not to say Clarett isn't a celeb.

Love seeing Rubin in the studio, it's where he belongs. I read something on illroots that said, "Rubin working with Clipse, single with Kanye West on the way." Now, did that mean Rick Rubin and 'Ye are working together or Kanye and Clipse. I feel like it is the latter but I could only imagine how great it would be if it were the former.

Here's a Cudi freestyle over Rich Boy's single. It's ight. Nothing more, nothing less.
By the way, is Kanye the only artist who leaks other people's stuff. I'm not talking about this song in particular since Cudi is on the G.O.O.D. label, but what about MF Doom and Fesit? Is anybody curious about how their conversation goes after Kanye just leaked their songs?
Feist: Kanye, really? You had to leak that track I gave you? Really?
Kanye: First of all, it's Martin Louis the King Jr. Second of all, politely mam, F*^% off.
