What up world?! Well I guess I'm the late kid to class with this freestyle... HAHA! But I never been the one to follow rules and I ain't gonna start now. This a warm up freestyle for my next project titled "The Colonic" which drops in March. Make sure you also support my new single "February" ft. T.Ru which drops on Valentines Day on iTunes.

Trey Songz Performs NJ Nets Halftime?

I haven't caught the other parts but shouts to the hater engineer in the first part that believes sampling is not a art form. If you are a fan of hiphop (which I'm sure you are) you know that's the farthest from the truth. Sampling is a art form as much as playing a guitar is a art form. It just so happens that the sample is from a existing piece of music. It's amazing how some people still don't get it. Check out this documentary from PBS. Pretty interesting. Spotted @ Nahright

Marijuana Legal in Dirty Jers?!!

Yep. You read that right. The Garden State can be called The Garden State for another reason now. NJ is the 14th state to legalize marijuana. But don't go running to the store to pick up your dutches,swishers,papers,etc.. Check out the official report below.

The marijuana bill (S119) is expected to take effect in six months. Only patients with specific illnesses would be permitted to get a prescription: cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, seizure disorder, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gherig’s disease), severe muscle spasms, muscular dystrophy, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease and any terminal illness if a doctor has determined the patient will die within a year.

The law allows the state health department to include other illnesses when it writes rules implementing it.

The law has other restrictions, such as forbidding people from growing their own marijuana, ensuring it is dispensed through licensed “alternate treatment centers,” and requiring designated caretakers who retrieve the drug on behalf of someone severely ill to undergo criminal background checks.

SneakerHeads for Haiti

From now, everyone is aware of the tragic earthquake that took place in Haiti this past week. Our network partner, Nice Kicks took to twitter for Austin area sneakerheads to join in on a project that would send sneakers to Haiti. After receiving a great response via the social networking site, Nice Kicks then teamed up with Soles4Souls—a charity that is aiding in bringing footwear to the victims of the awful disaster. In addition to contributing new or gently worn shoes that will be shipped to Haiti you can also donate $5 via text message. Here are the ways to contribute to the charity:
1) Text “SHOES” to 20222 to donate $5 to Soles4Souls.
2) Send any new or gently worn shoes to:
Sneakerheads for Haiti
Soles4Souls, Inc.
315 Airport Road
Roanoke, AL 36274
3) Tell all your friends, family, coworkers, classmates about this effort.

Clipse & Play Cloths T-Shirt for Haiti Relief Effort

Get your T-Shirt right HERE <-----

Haiti faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake - and several very strong aftershocks - struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince. Over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince faced this catastrophe alone and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. Many people across the country have already started to contribute to the Haiti Relief Effort and Play Cloths must do its part as well. Sometimes it is very confusing when donating due to the high level of corruption within certain charities but in this instance we feel that WYCLEF JEAN is a man we can trust.

So starting today, Friday January 15th @ 3pm est, Play Cloths will release a signature Jack logo t-shirt designed for the Haiti Relief Effort. 100% OF THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED to the YELE HAITI EARTHQUAKE FUND ( which is an organization supported by WYCLEF. In order to send the donations as fast as we can, the Haitian Jack t-shirt will only be on sale from Friday, January 15th to Friday, January 22nd (one week only). We will be shipping Friday the following week. We cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is and every little bit we can give helps. We can only hope that our efforts combined with efforts from the rest of the world will help the people of Port-au-Prince immediately as well as create a better Haiti for the future.

Wyclef Jean State of Emergency

My next few post will be dedicated to what's going on in Haiti. Text the word YELE to 501501 to help the emergency relief effort in Haiti. They must raise 1 million dollars a day in order to make a impact and help with the crisis in Haiti.

Wyclef on CNN-Earthquake in Haiti

NEW YORK—The following is a statement by Wyclef Jean on today’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti: “Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced.

The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince.

I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.

President Obama has already said that the U.S. stands ‘ready to assist’ the Haitian people. The U.S. Military is the only group trained and prepared to offer that assistance immediately. They must do so as soon as possible. The international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible.”

Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit and click on DONATE.

Haiti needs your prayers and support.

Joell Ortiz "Free Agent" March Press Release

(New York , NY ) – E1 Music is thrilled to announce the release of critically acclaimed emcee Joell Ortiz’s new album. Free Agent will be released in on March 23, 2010 and features Akon, Brother Ali, Bun B, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Raekwon, Novel, Smokey Robinson, MOP, Slaughterhouse, Maino, Jean Grae, Talib Kweili and Bobby Ray. Production duties will be handled by a who’s who list of music’s finest producers including: Red Spyda, Dj Khalil, Lil Fame, Dj Premier, Sean C and LV , Statik Selektah, Novel, Moss, Nottz, Frequency and Frank Dukes.

Ortiz is coming off a tour of the U.S. and is starting a European tour on Jan 15th as ¼ of the lyrical powerhouse Slaughterhouse, along with Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9” and Crooked I. The foursome was described as “…the game’s most imposing lyrical force” by XXL Magazine. The self-titled debut album, Slaughterhouse, is in stores now.

Ortiz released his debut album, The Brick (Bodega Chronicles), in 2007 on E1 Music. The album centered on his dense, rhyme-based work, and featured notable collaborations with Styles P, Akon and the legendary Big Daddy Kane. The Brick was met with considerable critical acclaim, landing Ortiz features in numerous hip-hop and mainstream publications including a much sought after “Leader of the New School ” cover story for XXL Magazine, along with Papoose, Crooked I, Saigon , Lupe Fiasco and others.

Having earned a loyal following from his lyrically-driven performances and energetic live shows Ortiz is poised to make an impact with his highly-anticipated new album, Free Agent. Ortiz is ready to deliver his fans another dose of lyrical fire.

Alan Grunblatt, General Manager of E1 Music, says, “Joell Ortiz is one the hottest new emcees to come out of New York . We had a lot of success with the first Joell release and are very excited he continues to be in the E1 family.”

The first single off of Free agent is the incredible “Call Me,” a nostalgic story of teenage love set in Brooklyn New York in the ‘90s. It will be serviced to urban radio shortly.

The production duo speaks on sampling records, which I totally agree 100% with them. HipHop was based on sampling records and there is no right or wrong way to make HipHop beats. People who downplay sampling are corny because some of your supposed "no sampling" big producers have made hits off of samples. I.E. Timbaland,Neptunes,Dr. Dre,etc... That's right! Do your homework. I say if it sounds good, roll with it! Sample,play keys,whatever!

A Message///Outasight Performance in Boston

I personally hate posting something on this blog/site without checking it out first. But for some reason or another my Internet is deciding to play games with me tonight. Pause? Why not?! Lol! I will make an exception for this video below because basically everything this dude does is dope and I support his music. Also I will go back to it and check it out, once Verizon decides to get off their bullsh*t! But all you sites just posting things up without even seeing it first, is just stupid. What's the point? I post things on this site to share what I believe is dope and what I believe you will enjoy. How could I do that without watching and hearing the material first? I don't write much on this site but once in a while you might catch a little message like this one. Enjoy! Peace!
