New Chris Brown x Lil Wayne x Swizz Beats

Chris Brown dropped his new track today "Transform Ya" Feat. Lil Wayne x Swizzy:

Are the Mavs Ready?


The biggest problem was the Mavs big men and their defense. Hopefully the new post acquisitions this off season will pay off. Tim Thomas has been somewhat of a problem for the Mavs, and now that we have him we don't need to worry about that. Although Thomas will probably be sitting on the bench since he is injured; and with Drew Gooden and James Singleton in rotation with Dampier and Dirk the post game should be solid and will improve when Thomas returns to the rotation along with rebounding and some in point production with Gooden averaging 2 more ppg then Dampier. But looking @ a starting lineup with Gooden, Dirk, Marion, Howard and Kidd the Mavs should get the job done along with a solid bench.

I still think the Mavs mishandled Gerald Green and made a mistake of letting him go. Green is only 23-24 years old with ridiculous potentional and a great compliment to Howard at a low price.

Just a few of my favorite things

I'm sitting here attempting to study, and all I can think about is how good this album is. Been listening to it all day to relax, and what's a rainy day without some Coltrane? Definitely a unique and an amazing Jazz album.

Kanye VMA outburst

Hahahahaha, Kanye...my dude....keepin' it real is always legit, but at least let ol' girl finish getting her shine! Lol always 100 with it. But on some real ish, dude can interrupt Obama's address to Congress by calling him a liar a few times...but Kanye gets called a "N" by our society....let's be real for a minute and weigh the level of disrespect. Not saying Kanye wasn't wrong, dude was straight up rude (but still hilarious). You heard about the Obama outburst a few times throughout the day after his congressional address; guy apologizes and no one says anything after. Bet Ye' will apologize & you will hear about the Kanye outburst for months. What we really talkin' about?

Blueprint 3 Review

The album was definitely on point lyrically, straight target on point matter a fact. Some people were hatin' on the beats from track 6 & up, but they were exactly what I expected & stuck to the album's agenda. The main point of this album was to get back to focusing on the instruments, bringing the sounds out with a classic feel. The only track I had to listen to a couple a times was "On to the next one". The Swizzy beat was skeptical for the first 10-15 seconds & then came around, but only because HOV merked the track. I was a little upset that Kid Cudi didn't get a verse & Drake got reduced to a chorus on "Off That" because he would have ripped that track, & that's why I think HOV didn't let him put some real lyrics down. Also surprised Wayne wasn't on the album (woulda been nice on "Venus vs Mars"), if HOV is goin to talk about passin' the torch to the man, he deserves some shine on the album. I know HOV was tryin' to keep the shine on him this album (as would any artist) so I can see why he didn't put or let some of the hot artists on tracks. This is a top 10 album this year for me so far though, Jay-Z def. remains top.

ten number 1's...maybe eleven?


On this Blueprint tres leak now, and so far so good. Some people were sayin' the second half of the album isn't up to HOV grade but we'll see.

Nike Dunk High AC TZ

Nike decided to keep it clean & simple with the new Dunk Hi AC TZ. Instead of throwing some insane colorways at you, they provided a stylish, crisp, clean design to the dunk with a canvas upper/vulcanized bottom. So if you're just tryin' to chill & have some freshes' to lounge in, this is an easy cop. This is the ideal/perfect dunk if you ask me; drop date September 5, exclusive to stores with tier zero "TZ" accounts.
