NAS – NIGGER The New Album…

January 7, 2008

While a bunch of others are soooo insulted and nervous about this new Nas upcoming album entitled “NIGGER” I am in no way scared nor do I feel that Nas will misrepresent his people and/or culture in any way at all!! I look forward to the record actually. In a recent interview I heard Nas make a extremely valid point, he said if Dr. Cornell West was coming out with an album called “NIGGER” no one would be worried about it. I agree we have to give Nas respect due and say for his entire career he has kept substance and integrity in the forefront of his music. I am even more excited about this record after seeing the tentative tracklist peep:

2. Black Legends
3. Rest In Peace
4. You A Nigger Too
5. The Fear Of A Black Man’s Dick
6. I’m Black
7. The Truth
8. Realise
9. Just Memories
10. This Way (featuring Jay-Z)
11. Kisses & Hugs (featuring Kelis)
12. Based on a True Story (featuring Dead Prez)
13. Take A While
14. Nigger
15. Publicity (bonus track)

More Soon Folks…

Thanks for reading

Always Bless

ATL MJQ Promoter Disrespects MF DOOM!!!

December 18, 2007

So After recently reading a post that leaked on to Okayplayer forum it bothered me that a promoter in ATL had the nerve to put MF DOOM’s personal info on the internet with the intentions of encouraging fans to harrass DOOM and his family. This honestly is going to far because you are putting a persons life endanger by doing this. People need to really think before they make moves sometimes!!

I have read the back story that led to this but honestly this is still going too far in my opinion. The reality is that there is always 2 sides to the story and I look forward to the Metal Face side to flourish soon.

I know one thing that remains consistent with DOOM and that is there is always a method to the madness!

More details on this soon.

Busta Rhymes Launching Exclusive J DiLLA Mix CD “DiLLAGENCE” NOV. 27TH!

November 23, 2007



By Roman Wolfe


Hip-Hop superstar Busta Rhymes and popular DJ Mick Boogie are releasing a new online mixtape titled Dillagence, in honor of late producer James “J. Dilla” Yancy.
According to Rhymes, Dillagence will feature exclusive unreleased J. Dilla songs produced for Busta Rhymes that have never seen the light of day.

Busta Rhymes and J. Dilla started working together as far back as 1996, when the famed producer remixed Rhymes’ hit single “Woo-Hah!!”
“When Mick brought this concept to the table, I felt the timing was right. Dilla left so much incredible music behind with me personally,” Busta Rhymes told in a statement. “It’s almost like he knew I was a vessel for him, and would be able to continue to champion his movement.”
The pair collaborated for over a decade, until J. Dilla died of complications from Lupus on February 10, 2006.
J. Dilla produced tracks for Rhymes’ hit albums When Disaster Strikes (1997), Anarchy (2000), Genesis (2001), It Aint Safe No More (2002) and The Big Bang (2006).

Dillagence will feature appearances from Papoose, MOP, Rah Digga, Talib Kweli, Cassidy and others.

“When I called Busta with this idea, he was so excited,” said Mick Boogie. “One day I woke up and my in-box was flooded with songs and songs of crazy Busta/Dilla material. I’m honored to be a part of this project.”

Dillagence will be released exclusively on Tuesday, November 27 at

A Tribe Called Quest Re-unites on stage @ The Vh1 HIPHOP Honors!!

October 8, 2007


Peace Everyone! it’s ya boy John Robinson! Fresh off the Vh1 Hip Hop Honors show last Thursday in NYC @ The Hammerstein Ball Room. I must say it was a Great look all the way around! This years honorees included: Missy Elliot, Teddy Riley and the new jack swing movement, Whodini, Wild Style: The Movie, Snoop and my Highlight of the evening ATCQ!!!
Wow how refreshing it was see all original members together in the building and on stage too!
Common set it off during the Tribe segment spitting “Bonita” which was crazy and then he was followed by Pharrell and Lupe sharing verses on “Electric Relaxation” which led up to probably some of the most energy I have ever seen on stage live in person… None other than “Busta Rhymes”!!! Wowsers Bus came out to Rock his “Scenario” Verse Please watch the joint if not for nothing else but the Tribe Set. Very serious Bizness!!!

Here is an official report from Rolling Stone:

Inside the Hammerstein Ballroom, the folks up front looked like they were hired to be there, going wild and rapping line-for-line along with each set, paying tribute to pioneers who were popular when many of them were toddlers. “You can call Missy Elliott a lot of things,” actress Kerry Washington said while introducing the first honoree of the night. “Visionary, genius, hot girl and a force. She stands among the guys.” Timbaland strutted across the stage while Eve and Keyshia Cole performed Missy’s “Hot Boyz,” before Nelly Furtado, in a skintight black dress and fully exposed gold bra, broke out the “Get Ur Freak On” remix. Ciara showed off her flawlessly long legs and equally flawless choreography on “Lose Control,” and in her signature Adidas jacket, Missy stood grinning and clapping from the audience.

As Diddy took the stage, the crowd began to chant “Bad Boy” so loudly, it felt contrived, but the label impresario was clearly honored to introduce the Teddy Riley New Jack Swing tribute. “Teddy let you know how it felt to be from Harlem. His swagger was impeccable. He’s the reason I started wearing shades,” Diddy said. Doug E. Fresh warmed up the set before T-Pain took over with Guy’s 1987 number-one hit “I Want Her.” In a three-piece suit, Kool Moe Dee kept the crowd in ’87, delivering his classic “How Ya Like Me Now” as if twenty years haven’t passed. Then Ne-Yo and Keyshia Cole went head to head with a sexy duet of Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time,” the best song off of 1992’s Dangerous. To top it off, Teddy Riley and Aaron Hall performed renditions of “No Diggity” and “Rumpshaker.”


LL Cool J looked like a Bedazzled rock star as he introduced a tribute to Charlie Ahearn’s 1982 movie Wild Style. The older set gave it all they’ve got — Chief Rocker Busy Bee, Grandmaster Caz, and KRS-One sped through freestyles and new verses. Next, Chris Rock introduced fellow Brooklynites Whodini. Nick Cannon rapped with four guys in nerd gear (thick glasses, argyle sweaters) dancing behind him, and Nelly performed “One Love” before Whodini came out singing their 1984 hit “Friends” and the crowd sang along like they’ve all been stabbed in the back before. At the end of “The Freaks Come Out at Night,” Jermaine Dupri breakdanced onstage.


Suddenly, it got gangsta. Reservoir Dog Harvey Keitel introduced Snoop Dogg. T.I. took the stage with former Cash Money Hot Boy B.G. hollering, “187 on an undercover cop!” Pharrell performed “Nuthin’ But a G Thang” with Tha Dogg Pound’s Daz, then the always pimped out Ice-T Crip walked onstage performing “Gin & Juice” while Keyshia Cole waved her hand in the air, rapping along from her seat, “We don’t love them hoes!” As Ice-T sauntered offstage, he called out, “Crips in the muthafucking house tonight!” Befittingly, Snoop then took the stage in a blue plaid button down, rapping “Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat” before Pharrell joined him for “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”


For a total change of pace, Common hit the stage with A Tribe Called Quest’s sweet rap ballad “Bonita Applebum.” Pharrell and Lupe Fiasco joined him for “Electric Relaxation,” and the Tribe tribute was in full swing when Busta Rhymes stormed the stage like a Dungeon Dragon for his verse on the classic crew cut “Scenario.” Busta was rocking a cartoonish neon-pink and green outfit straight out of his early Leaders of the New School days. “He’s bezzerk!” a guy in the audience screamed. “Best moment of the night!”

Soon, all four members of Tribe — that’s right, even the mystery member Jarobi was in the house — were onstage with their fists pumping along with “Check the Rime” and “Award Tour.” Although it didn’t sound quite as fresh as it did back in the early Nineties, the music felt just as fun.
