Lollipop Remix & Jay-Z Freestyle Diss


I also just grabbed Al Green & ?uestlove's collaboration album Lay It Down, I'll be posting my favorite tracks later tonight!

Here's Jay-Z's defense of Lebron James during the Cleveland Cavalier star's ongoing feud with DeShawn Stevenson of the Washington Wizards. Stevenson began the beef by claiming James is overrated, then James responded by making this analogy: Lebron = Jay-Z while Stevenson = Soulja Boy.

While I don't completely agree with Lebron comparing himself to Jay-Z (he's more like the NBA's Lupe Fiasco or Clipse, because both have only 2 albums under their belts and Lebron has yet to grab a ring yet), the Jigga man's diss is pretty amusing.

Then we have another remix to Wayne's chart-smashing electro-R&B hit "Lollipop" where Young Jeezy implements his version of the Auto-Tune voice. Stick to the trap, Snowman - you don't have crossover appeal like Snoop or Weezy. I'm out to class, peace!

I'm So Fly..


[tracy, tina & alec own all]

...Because there's less than a month left in my semester, then it's a Screenwriting summer class and then getting that diploma yessir! Still looking for that job, but one step at a time.

I had a big week in the Inside Beat coming out Thursday here at Rutgers New Bruns, I'll post my South Park Season 12 review, a cover story on the demise of TV theme songs and a review of Moby's latest Last Night. Next week will be even BIGGER with my review of Nas' Nigger and the new 30 Rock season A.K.A. the wittiest show on prime-time, network TV.

But first, some new jams to stay fly to.. Enjoy!

Because I floss so hard..




You can catch me covering the retro-rap connoisseurs the Cool Kids as they infiltrate Rutgers U's Livingston campus this upcoming Saturday. omprised of Mikey Rock and Chuck Inglish, these Mid-west newcomers pay homage to 80's hip-hop influences like Eric B. and Rakim with stripped-down, bass-thumping beats and flashy rhymes. Check out this vid for a slight taste of the action.. Enjoy!
