5 Year Old Jonah Rocks!

This is just plain amazing! 5 year old Jonah murks the drums to System of the Down's "Toxicity". It never gets old to see such an incredible talent in such a young person. You can see he has having fun as well, this wasn't forced on him by some crazy parents. Check out his youtube page HERE for other cover songs incase you think its a fluke. Jonah Rocks!

Kicks of The Day:Nike Air Max Neon 95's

It's been a minute since I posted some kicks on here, and for good reason. I wanted to take a few months to put some paper aside for some business things I have lined up. Make sense? Well I was in a groove where I was buying a new pair of kicks every 2weeks. Thats $200 to $300 a month! In order to slow that down,I had to take the first step and not look at any kicks. LOL SOunds crazy right? If you are somewhat of a sneakerhead you should understand. Well, I'm still in savings mode and I think I can handle looking at some kicks without buying them for a minute. So my first post on Kicks in a long time is the classic Air Max Neon 95's. Why not? Their classics! And they are available today @ 21 MERCER. Go have fun and rest assure that you will not be seeing me there. Not for few anyways.

Mike Posner “One Foot Out The Door” Episode 9

Puma Presents: Mike Posner “One Foot Out The Door” Episode 9: Live Free or Die from Mike Posner on Vimeo.

In the ninth episode of Mike Posner’s web series “One Foot Out The Door” presented by Puma, Mike heads to New Hampshire to rock Dartmouth with Wale and Gym Class Heroes. Mike parties and pongs, then heads to Eastern Connecticut with Gym Glass Heroes where Travis gives him a major on-camera cosign.

Tune into Episode 10 as Mike heads to California for 4 shows in 3 nights as well as his national TV debut on Last Call With Carson Daly.

The History of Power Play Studios

This one takes place where Rakim recorded the whole Paid in Full LP, where Nas did the first of It Ain’t Hard to Tell’s many versions… Fat Joe, LL Cool J, Mobb Deep, Run-DMC, BDP, Biggie, and Jay-Z also laid classic verses here.
This studio was called Power Play until it was sold in 98. In Ya Ear is the new moniker, Joell Ortiz, Cory Gunz and Cormega are some of the regular customers… Rob and Ax, the new bosses, shares thoughts on the vast legacy of this joint.
Greatest moments include the (long) making of The Big Picture, Big L’s posthumous album, by his friend and mentor Lord Finesse.
Baddest moments ? Power Play was sold for a reason : the old owner was fed up with rappers and labels not paying their studio time. That’s why he kept each and every reel until somebody paid the bills. That’s why Rob and Ax ended up with dozens of masters from Finesse, EPMD, Rakim, etc.
I’m sure you’ve started guessing : the treasure was sitting here, and… something bad happened. In a New York Minute.

Fat Joe "Dark Side" Studio Session

I'm not going to sit here and front, I counted Joe out. But he has, once again proved me wrong. His new material is sounding crazy and his choice of production is on point! Check out this video below of Fat Joe in Cool & Dre's studio in Miami w/ Scoop Deville (Producer of "Ha Ha" & Snoop Dogg's "I wanna Rock"). He also plays a short preview of a record he has with The Clipse.

The Making of Lil Wayne & Eminem's "Drop The World"

I love the fact that this "monster of a track" was made on Fruity Loops. There is about 100 producers (probally more) scratching their heads like "Really? They made this on Fruity Loops?" Yes! Now don't ever knock what a producer uses again.

The Making of "Hard Knock Life"

Legendary. I remember exactly where I was when I first heard this record. I was in my mothers Ford explorer in a Pathmark parking lot. I didnt want to go in because as soon as my mother was pulling up to the parking space, this song came on. The song grabbed me immediately and I had to hear the whole thing. Me: "Ma,I'm going to hang out here. I don't want to go in." Mom: "Ok, I'll be right back. Don't dare drive this truck anywhere!" LOL

Big Pun ft' Terror Squad - Whatcha Gonna Do

I've been slacking the last few days. Some last minute birthday partying (Feb. 3rd I turned 25...Thank you) mixed with the superbowl and just overall laziness is the reason why I have not been on this computer. Well I'm back. Hello. R.I.P. Big Pun. I know his 10 year anniversary was yesterday but I want to pay my respects regardless. Anyone that knows me knows that Big Pun was and still is my favorite MC. I basically have anything he's ever done. I've been knocking his music all last week and today I've been playing this song below a lot! The way he put this together is just incredible!
