"AZ can't appreciate good hip hop. We're stuck in a molding that invisions hip hop as a chain glistening dub rollin machine"
Wise words from my boy Jando spoken during our converstation about the stupidity of the Owner of the clothing store "Livin in Hip Hop" and the Bobby Fresh Clothing line. In you, my beloved reader, don't know on Friday July 25 there was a fashion show at the local Cherry Lounge with guests Tyga and the (dope) Kidz in the Hall.
Yep yep, the first appearance by Naledge and Double-O in the Valley of the Sun went absolutely............TERRIBLE! From my sources, the main Patron (i see him all the time, yet dont know his name, ahh) decided it was cool to not pay the full amount owed to the, now extremely famous, duo from the Chi. Then he decides to dip out of the club without telling anyone and leaving the crew out to dry (no money, transportation, nada!)
then this is where Hiphopdx.com comes in and fills in the rest of the details:
Although formal details have yet to be released, a reported eyewitness contacted HipHopDX over the weekend to claim that they witnessed group producer Double O in a physical altercation with several club owners and bodyguards. Although the source was not sure why the club staff was involved, suggesting it may have been from a dispute with another patron. The report stated, "After being grabbed up by one bouncer and put in a headlock, at least four other bouncers came over pulled Double O to the floor, and began kicking and beating him."
Following that, police intervened, arresting partner Naledge for what appeared to be taking pictures of the aforementioned beating. Rock The Bells reps told HipHopDX in Maryland that injuries resulted in Double O going to the hospital on Saturday. There was no additional information available on either Kidz In The Hall's present whereabouts or condition.
Can you believe this garbage....Seeing im a minor (but we major still lol) the venue was out of reach for me....but after hearing this...it just makes me wanna move from here. Go to a place where good music is apprecieated.
*looks at plane ticket prices to LA/NY, then bank account, tears up*
RIP to my chances at seeing Kidz in the Hall "Driving down the Block" in AZ
ahhh, if only the Rock The Bells tour came to AZ......yea right, im stuck with "edgefest"!!!!! TOTALLY!!!

With all this talk of illegal immigration here and the debate that ensues when the topic is brought up makes us forget that were not the only country that has this "problem".
Lets go half way across the world to the home of my favorite futbol club team Inter Milan....Italy.
Right now they are having their own problems with illegal immigration, not so much with mexicans like us here in AZ, that would be weird though lol.
Anyways, now they made it so that any illegal who gets arrested has to serve a sentance 1/3 longer than a sentance given to a legal citizen....
Now the question is - Is that going too far?
I mean should the fact that you are not in your country justify you having to go to jail for a longer time??...On the other hand. You are illegal. I dont know how they do it over there in Italy but if they tried to do that here there would be hell to pay!
There is one question that, although seems like its been beat too many times, remains to be asked. Are these new laws against illegals based off of a hidden racist agenda. Answer this...If these illegals happened to be of W. European decent, and were commiting the same crimes, something like this would have been passed?? I think not. But since they are African.....yea.
Now im not discounting the fact that, yes, these illegals are bad doing things in a country that they are not legal in, and that they should suffer the same consequenses.....the same. But there is just something that makes me question the motives of the Italians.
Just ask yourself this, if the canadians were the illegal immigrants here in America, would you be making such a big deal of it? Im not saying it should all be good and what not, we do need to watch our borders but, come on.
lol, idk.....im just ahhhhhh right now.

Damn, I wish I was musically inclined sometimes. Cus of times like this.
Instead I'm left working a 8-5 (aint no such thing as a 9-5 liarssss). I mean how nice of a life would it be to just ride around in a bus bigger than some of your listeners' house and just play trivia freestyle with one of the dopest MC's ever (BlackThought!!!) and with the guy who would make you laugh with his annual wrap-up song about the past years events. Alas, I'm left to just watch the video of it and wish....(cue mario's "one wish" lol).
But serioulsy go buy these albums, cus god knows thats the closest i'll ever come to making music haha.

Yet another DOPE remix for an already DOPE song lol. Nothing much else to say, I hope you guys have The In Crowd.........I Hope So! props to Matt Conaway for this one.
Kidz in The Hall ft. Pacific Division, Tyga, Glasses Malone, and Mistah F.A.B. - Driving Down the Block (WestCoasT Rmx)
I swear I'll post my Nogales experience.......after I get back from Dallas. YEA BOY!!!!
P.S. Since I love you guys....Here's another treat from some other Chicago artists....I think you might have heard of them.
Common - Announcement
The Cool Kids - Dinner Time
Lupe Fiasco - Hold It Down
The Hammer Crew/TSF - No Tight Clothes
Someone actually took the time out and made a song.....then a video....and then SHIRTS!!! about not liking tight clothes.
what happened to the good old days when you would just not wear it.......see what the internet gone and did.
p.s. Im still laughing at the fact that they went out and spent money for this.....what do they think this is Stop Snitching? lol......paying that much attention to another man's garb is probably just as G(ay) to me as wearing tight clothes is to them.
Congrats! mission accomplished? Now a kid somwhere is gonna make a shirt like that and start another stupid craze that everyone is gonna blame hip hop for.
haha, i guess you can see its not one of my favorite vids. But it did make me crack up at how rediculous it is.lol.
