The Back Nine....

Heh...
I guess I've gotten to that lovely place where I have to basically yellow page a DJ....
Or should I feel blessed that I can basically APB my need for someone who can digitally select my set list so I can bust rhymes in front of people....
At the reference of the Rhyme Culture cats I got connected to new kid on the block DJ Tone....
I hadn't had the opportunity to meet with homeboy until he parked his whip in my driveway, loaded up my car, & embarked upon our 3 hour [tour] voyage....
We chopped it up about typical small talk polly for a few and when we got within our destination's doorstep, decided we should probably go over some sh!t....
He also isn't a big fan of "smoke", but being the annoyingly accommodating a*sh*le I be's, included in his Labeless welcome package (pause) was a mask I had gotten from the warehouse at my nine to fever....

Then we got to the spot we were to rock at....
Realised we passed right by it courtesy ala GPS on 1st pass because we didn't believe we'd be performing at a golf club....And you know what? We were performing at a f*ckin' golf club[house].....

Fence walls. Art. Pro Shop. Hip Hop. Yep.

Chris Blize aka DJ AlBums stunt double...

ApeSh!t.... This Super Bowl MC Battle Champ can do his thing kinda hard yo (pause)... Thoroughly enjoyed said set....

Two light skinned nigros lookin like two darker than normal light skinned nigros (On a staircase even!!!)

Pick Your Poison.

The DJ for the night (DJ Myth) was really, really f*ckin drunk and right after I rocked he asked when I was going to perform....

I can only accommodate so much, buddies.... (Gas station attendant voice)
Most muhph*ckas don't even attempt to do that much....

Pick Your Poison's DJ was real ill.
This cat MC Nobody Cares was kinda ill too. I know that name from somewhere yo....
New Hampshire. I'll call you.
Peace.

CasUno 2011 Top Fiiii...Errrr....Yeah.....

Yo, I been beating my head against the wall since the end of the year/St.ART of the "new" year on what the hell I'ma tell yall I put on a top 5 releases of 2011 (From a listener's perspective)...
Really, every year since I St.ARTed doing these lists sh!t is getting worse & worse (From a buyer's perspective)....

I truly enjoy copping a new record well worth my minuscule federal reserve notes, but as the years pass I find myself getting a hold of a grip of ish I enjoy via free download. Like most collectors, IF? I grab something worth buying the official release, I usually do so.... But more often than not, down loadable releases are just that; with no physical copy to follow.

Looking kinda bleak, music geeks....
So my first 3 entries are joints I bought that all hold the same weight in regard to their additions to Hip Hop culture in 2011....

This sh!t is type ridiculous yo. Caught me off guard. I got put onto this from someone else and had every intention on passing it over. Boy am I glad I didn't take my own advise. Made me St.ART diggin back into old stuff he previously released and I ain't disappointed by any of it! Sleeper pick of the year yo.... Cyber Sheik type styles even! I actually just caught a beat tape joint he did where he parody styled Aloe Black's release for the cover HERE

Prime example of something I got a hold of months before it's official release. So dope I went and copped as soon as it got onto the store shelf yo. Aesop Rock is probably my favorite melanin deficient Hip Hop artist. Period.

Took me a while to get on the Danny Brown train. I am no fan of Black Milk either. This sh!t is dope yo (minus like 1 song for me).... Also prompted me to rush out and see the Hybrid MC when he passed through my area. I crashed my car that night on some really drunk rain sh!t, but I don't regret the night at all yo.

That brings me to the rounding out of this list via 2 joints I caught on some download sh!t...
A continuum of the Danny Brown onslaught yo. That 30 (XXX) ish is crazy. Glad ya not 22 and I can't relate yo, but that gear is type tight, black man, and I don't mean tight meaning fresh either (Ha!)....

Found this "beat tape" download from another favorite of mine. This ish plays great and sounds fresh and you too can get your own HERE
Helps out that P. Locke & I originate from the same (Cape Verde) Islands in Africa, but that's just a bonus. (Correction: P Locke's bloodline is from Brava and my family is from Fogo)...

My summation: Hip Hop needs a defibrillator yo. Fast.....
Peace 2011, Hello 2012. What'choo got for we this year, huh?
