Y'all ready for this? Aight, let's go.
The sweet, charming, and incomparable homie Shenda a.k.a. Super Woman were choppin it up one day about songs that we can get high to. Now before you go jumpin to conclusions, she doesn't partake in the glorious herbal indulgence. I, however, have been known to from time to time (hence the name of my blog, a play on the famous THC-laced anthem "Hits From The Bong" by Cypress Hill).
So, when we say "high," we mean getting high on whatever it is you do. Green, booze, working out, reading, or life itself, I hope you're able to get high and just feel good.
We compiled this mix to lift you to a euphoric mental state - it's got some mood-enhancing jams from all types of music. Vibe out to songs from Erykah Badu, Blackalicious, Pink Floyd, Bootsy Collins, Jay-Z, OutKast and a bunch more - so please download it and let us know what you think!
Without any further ado, we present our mix to our faithful readers... get ready to Blow Ya Mind! Enjoy!

I just had to do it - It's Friday and it's payday. After reading on Bloomberg that the first estimate of real GDP growth for the 4th quarter was negative 3.8% (and I expect it probably could be worse when the Commerce Dept releases the real figures), I figured it's only right I do my part as a consumer to stimulate the U.S. economy.
I know, I know, we might be outta this recession even quicker if I keep this up - you can thank me later. Plus, I needed some fresh whites and I've been in love with the Dunk Low black/gums for a while.
Oh, to keep it music-related, I upped some new tracks from Raekwon featuring Ghostface & Crooked I and Rihanna alongside The-Dream. Peep below.
Shouts to DrJays.com rep BossLadyNYC for the info that Classic Kicks was having a dope sale and major clearances. Now go out and do your part y'all!

Girl I wanna hit that more than I wanna hit the lotto
Ohhh man, what a way to end the work day and head into the best day of the week.
Not only did Q-Tip recruit Busta Rhymes, Raekwon and Lil' Wayne for a remix to his banger "Renaissance Rap," but The-Dream scooped Officer Ross, Juelz Santana, and Ludacris to add to the original remix to "Rockin' That Shit" with Fabolous.

Young Jeezy ft. Jay-Z - My President Is Black (Official Remix)
Morning, all. During my daily news reading, which consists mainly of the New York Times and Bloomberg plus my Blogger Reader, I came across this real cool article in the Times that compared Obama's style in the Oval Office with that of that other punk who used to be in the White House.
Obama's less formal, more relaxed style is a change for those accustomed to Bush's suit-and-tie tight-ass ways:
Thus did a rule of the George W. Bush Administration — coat and tie in the Oval Office at all times — fall by the wayside, only the first of many signs that a more informal culture is growing up in the White House under new management.
Don't get it twisted though, Obama is serious when it comes to getting the job done as President:
When the president invited Congressional leaders to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue last week to talk about his economic stimulus package, the session ran so long that Mr. Obama wound up apologizing to the lawmakers — even as he kept them talking, engaging them in the details of the legislation far more than was customary for Mr. Bush.
By the way, the economic stimulus package passed in the House of Representatives yesterday without a single Republican supporter. It's now making its way to the Senate for a vote.
Peep the rest of the article here at the NY Times to read about more of Obama's White House habits and his plans to change the Oval Office's decor. Enjoy!

It never stops, so just keep on going.
I took part of the weekend off to study and relax, but I'm back at it Monday morning style. Let's recap some of the ish that went down during my brief hiatus.
Lil' Wayne will release his rock album Rebirth on April 7 and the first single "Prom Queen" produced by Tha Bizness leaked on Saturday. Even though I saw this coming once the Martian started to strum the guitar strings, I didn't expect him to put out an entire album of rock music. Since I'm open-minded, I'll give it an honest listen. And honestly, Weezy sounds awkward on this joint. I'm looking forward to see if he is capable of living up to the rock star persona he so often claims.
Now on to an album I'm actually looking forward to. A second cover and official track list for Jadakiss' upcoming LP The Last Kiss leaked courtesy of them NMC boys. 'Kiss is set to drop his 3rd album in early March.
1. Pain & Torture
2. Something Else ft. Young Jeezy
3. Things I’ve Been Through
4. Can’t Stop Me
5. Money and Jewelry
6. Smoking Gun ft. Jazmine Sullivan
7. Times Up ft. Barrington Levy
8. I Tried ft. Avery Storm
9. Searching ft. Sheek Louch
10. Two-Step ft. Pharrell Williams
11. Come and Get Me ft. Sheek Louch & S.I.
12. By My Side ft. Ne-Yo
13. Death Wish ft. Lil Wayne
14. Letter to B.I.G. ft. Faith Evans
And finally we've got music from the homie Wale, who recently came out of Twitteretirement after he and DJ Semtex had a little Twitter scuffle. This here is the DC native's remix to Euro group H.I.G. single "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes."
Check the Cbox to the right for links to Wayne's "Prom Queen" and Wale's Euro remix, Enjoy!

Sup all.I'd love to say Happy Friday but mine has been anything but. You ever get that feeling that as soon as your day is started, you feel like it's not your day at all?
After two accidents caused bumper-to-bumper traffic driving to work that impeded me from my daily Dunkin Donuts ritual, I rolled up to the office about a half hour late. I'm not focused here at work, I've got a bunch of projects but can't get my mind right. Plus, a couple of my co-workers are getting on my nerves. Just let me be, damn it.

I've been trying to figure out how to add one of those official list of the blogs I follow and FINALLY Blogger offers a gadget for this. Or, at least I finally realized it does.

At the MTV Youth Ball, Yeezy resurrected what I hoped died in the 90's, that business-in-the-front but party-in-the-back phenomenon - the shag. Or, as us caucasians call it, the mullet.
Complex Mag and Miss Info got a kick out of Yeezy's ridiculous cut too, 'cause they and their readers took on the daunting task of compiling a history of the shag highlighting some of history's most disturbing do's.
I switched it up right quick to post some of the most incredibly unfashionable mullets from the past. Feel free to check out the history of the black mullet, including the likes of Alfonso Ribero, Theo Huxtable, Lionel Richie, Jermaine Jackson, Walter Payton and many many more at the Complex Blog and Miss Info's site.
