Vodpod videos no longer available.


above, the video for the single “The Top” if you haven’t seen it already or are interested in what they sound like (commonly referred to as an updated Prince and Phil Collins..but don’t limit them)…

peace, and open your minds to good music love.


lupe…laser time

here’s a sweet series of recent blogs from codename #WEARELASERS…

apparently shining down was just the first leak but not the first single. perhaps army girl? (see below)
lupe fiasco on to the next one twitter
lupe fiasco twitters "ya'll ain't ready"

the following video:

…Lupe perform at an underpromoted fraternity Step competition Sprite was sponsoring on campus.

Here’s a video I took on my iPhone of Lupe performing his new joint “Fire”; he gives a minute-long intro explaining the track and what it has to do with MTV’s recently released 2009 Hottest MCs List. I believe this is the first time he’s performed the track.

Also, he performed a new track, “Army Girl”, off of his upcoming album Lasers. -WeDoItRight


He talks about how (as previously posted) he’s ok with the list being “right now”…but he’s gonna have to be “two straight solid years” where he’s “like 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 on that mothafucker.” he says he’s just going to put in the work.
i respect a hard worker more that about anything else…so…let’s go!

Peace, and laser love.


M&M (eminem)…new old music

I picked up 4 never before heard (until today) unreleased exclusive raw ill…ok sorry…”M&M” tracks.
Here’s a couple of goofy pictures to kick this post off. Features Eminem with producer Manix and partner in rhyme Chaos Kid (making up the group Soul Intent).


Eminem & Proof – Hammer vs. Vanilla (Bassmint Suckerin Rhyme)
It just keeps goin, haha. Here’s an explanation as to what “Suckerin Rhyme” was…

Basically, the ‘Suckerin Rhyme’ was a way for us to have fun by freestylin. We would record the sessions to play back later and laugh at. They were never intended to be released to the public. They were purely for our own amusement. The term ‘Suckerin Rhyme(s)’ was derived from an old-school hip-hip slang term called ‘Sucker M.C.’ which was used by rappers to describe someone who sucked, hence the title ‘Suckerin Rhyme’. So the attempt was to, in a humorous way, represent a wack or ‘Sucker M.C.’. That was the only thing premeditated about this stuff! So much of hip-hop was so serious in its competitiveness and this was a way for us to unwind and warm-up to do some serious music we had written and intended to release to the public. In retrospect, I think some of these tracks are entertaining enough in their own sense to be released to the public finally. Anyone who enjoys the spirit of spontaneity in music and humor – impromptu, improvisation, or ad-lib, which came to be coined in hip-hop as the ‘freestyle’ should hopefully find some degree of merit and entertainment in these moments captured on tape.. Enjoy! -love, Snafu

Eminem & Chaos Kid – Unrealistically Graphic
Eminem & Chaos Kid – Poo Butt
Eminem & Chaos Kid – Artificial Flavor
Funny cause he totes started off just effin around (Poo Butt?). Jokin and freestyling…now he’s being put at the top of Greatest Emcee lists. Dude was still ill…i wonder if he ever paid Big Daddy Kane for this style (ha!).
Peace, and exclusive love.
