I Forgot

Us Cowboys dont need you we Bill Parcells...

Joe Budden aka Regular Joe is focused. Dude was aggy when he went to see Green Lantern. Good look on whoever put that "Last Dayz" beat on, Onyx was dope. Had a talk with Dupont Menage about Joey. Hov didnt do shit at Def Jam, co-signed a few artists (spit a verse on their song) and kept it movin. One thing I agreed with Menage was that unlike other Def Jam artists Joey doesnt have a movement, he has a following. Joey is my favorite introspective artist and is gonna kill it in 2008.

I forgot a few things on my 2007 list.

Site of the Year
Inquiring Mind- the Canadian buls get it poppin.

Shoes of the Year
Common Projects-these are fresh on that grown man tip. Dont let the price scare you.

Sam Sparro is gonna be HUGE in 2008

Nikki Jean of Nouveau Riche is dope. Shes been on her grind for a minute. I'll let the video speak for itself.

Can't smoke no'more, can't drink no'more if you're from where I'm from.
Boston plans to dominate all pro sports, and everyone uses steroids.
Appalachian State started a BCS shitshow and Favre is back on his percocets.
Everybody and their wives are running for president and damn near everything is going green.
Blow is back like 85', filming sex tapes is just a hobby and rehab stands for vacation.
Myspace friends lands you a TV show and you better come up with a new dance or know how to do the soulja boy.

You ain't heard?

2007 Albums that moved:

1) Kanye West - Graduation
I remember listening to the mixtape and was like, "Damn, Ye' came back". Then Good Life played on Entourage, and I was like, "Damn, Ye' is back". Then I copped the album and I was like, "Damn, Hiphop is back".

2) Lil' Wayne - Da Drought 3
Had the Intro on repeat before I could even listen to the rest of the tape, and it wasn't even supposed to be the intro.

3) Little Brother - Getback (Nice Dewitz!)
Self-leaked album. Nottz produced Two-Step Blues is a must listen. The split with 9th is a good step for both. Watch out for The Wonder Years.

2007 was a good year, but not nearly as important as 2008 is going to be.

Next year we'll have a new President, the Detox and a Jamie Lynn Spears reality show.

Please know what's going on in your world.

Embrace what's true and let go of what's not.

Let's talk about it.

Cheers, and I'll see you next year.

Its A Wrap

Ahora loca mueva la carera, abre la boca y muere la marera...

Its been a crazy year in my life personally and just in general. This is MY top list for everything that has gone on. I'll be back after the new year so keep checkin the blog.

Album of the year
Kanye West- Graduation. This has been on repeat in my iPod ever since I picked it up. Not a lot has interested me in hip hop this year, but this was a standout album.

Jetsetters of the year
Mr Kim, dude gets it in. His site is bookmarked on my powerbook for a reason.

Heron Preston is another jetsetter makin moves. Trips to Europe and all over the world, another cat makin power moves.

Skate Video of the year
Lakai Fully Flared I could talk about this all day but just cop it. Mike Mo rips!

Shoe of the year

Penny Foamposites this shoe brings back memories. It was good to see Nike bring these back.

Upcoming Brands for 2008
Rip-off & Duplicate my favorite shirt of the year came from this brand.

DVSN Garment Supply I like the direction 10 Deep is headed with this brand.

Artists of the year
Kanye West-"Yeezy" had the biggest album of 2007. With all that has taken place dude is still touring and making videos. "Flashing Lights" might be my favorite song of 2007.

Lil Wayne- Whether you like him or not hes been everywhere. The Drought 3 stays in constant rotation for me. 2008 will make or break Wayne with The Carter 3.

Swagger of the year

Bill Belichick this dude is the definition of a BOSS. Its 20 degrees outside and you got a headset and a hoody on.

I'll be back after the new year. Everyone have a safe and happy holidays.

..Do your homework..

  • Ron Paul raised $6 Million in 24 hours this past Sunday.. Setting his total fundraising over $18 Million. those numbers are just stupid..

  • The little-known Texan, who favors abolishing much of the federal government and the Federal Reserve.
  • He also opposes the federal War on Drugs, leave the decision on whether to regulate or deregulate drugs, including medical marijuana, to the states. Holla!!!
  • He supports tighter border security and ending welfare benefits for illegal aliens.
  • He has pledged never to raise taxes.
  • Paul would abolish the individual income tax.
  • Paul strongly supports the freedom of the Internet.
  • Strongly believes in Pro-Life.
  • Paul received 26.2% of military donations, roughly equal to the support received by all other Republican candidates combined.
  • Is the only 2008 Republican presidential candidate to have voted against the Iraq War Resolution in 2002.

I'm not even big into politics, but how could you keep turning your head?? The guy raised over 18 million from his supporters- somethin has to be good here.. I'm not sayin I'm voting for him.. but he defiantly has some brilliant/wild ideas, and who knows if any of them will happen.. but at least it gets people thinking...

So come on people... Do a little homework on the knuckleheads who might be running our country soon...

..We $pend like its nothin... right?

So since my coach won't let the Americans go home for Xmas, he was kind enough and give us 5 days off since we are in 1st place.. So with this break, were planning a trip to Macau. Which is a little island about an hour from Hong Kong. It's pretty much the NEO- Vegas of Asia..

"As of the end of 2006, Macau became the largest and fastest-growing gaming market in the world, and has surpassed the Las Vegas Strip in total revenues. According to statistics provided by the Macau government, in 2006, Macau's gaming revenues exceeded US$7 billion, surpassing the Las Vegas Strip gaming revenues of US$6.6 billion".

But I might end up losing alot of money considering it did gross the more money last year than Vegas... In other words, I'm gonna have a great time-

Should be retarded!

Google this place!

Step yer Global game up people... So many places to see.. So little time.. Make it happen when opportunities arise

..Can ya work with that...

So I just got back from my trip this weekend in Shibuya, JPN.. Its the fashion capitol of Tokyo.. The whole atmosphere of that ward is dope, you know its fresh when your walkin down the streets and they got big as speakers posted on the street lights rockin Japanese hip-hop.. ill... Couldn't even listen to my ipod.. Great trip, and everyone who likes street wear needs to and should make a trip out to Shibuya at least once... nothin's like it... TRUST

Brand new Bape store just opened in Oct.

The display case is like the shit you see at Baskin Robins.. Clean.

Just a random shot inside, before they told me "no pictures"

When you walk in the doors, they got this shoe display under glass, and the shoes are on a conveyor belt type thing..

Right across the street, I mean not even 10 steps was Stussy^^

Damn I dropped way to much money this weekend.. $70 just for a T?? Why not?

Shot inside of Stussy....
I got more pics from this weekend that I need to post, but I need sleep, back to back games this weekend.. Sheesh!! and I just dropped 31 tonight.. I don't do much.

...Mayonnaise Colored Benz ...

"I Push Miracle Whips"

Did he hit his mid life crisis?? Damn, the little homie is on fire right now.. after droppin 51 on the Lake show, then hit Dallas with 35 and 12.. Dude looks hungry again...
*p.s..Melo is the 2nd best 1 on 1 player in the League, right behind Kobe..

Make sure you bring your lap top with you next week when you board American Airlines... My question is why has this not happened sooner? it's almost 2008 people.. “in a few years time, if you get on a flight that doesn’t have Internet access, it will be like walking into a hotel room that doesn’t have TV.” So crucial..

All I want for Xmas is this and this.

Eva Mendes is so naughty.. and now she is droppin it like its hot for PETA-

Crooks & Castles interview... "The blogs are responsible for the popularity and the mainstream of streetwear and its culture".

and shout out to Mr. West-
