To Pimp A Butterfly – initial thoughts for

“jus’ my thoughts…”



marc mac - dusty motown crates vol. 2

you know this is exactly my type of shit… soul music. a classic mix to inspire the heart and soul on a thursday… plus a few more there in the vault for the rainy days.

click thru the photo for the music. tons of it. mixed by the legendary marc mac of 4hero fame.


“Part two. More Motown Magic from the Motor City Crates.

Marc Mac presents 60 minutes of Motown Dusty Grooves “mixtape style”. All “green light Technics” strictly vinyl.

Without doubt Motown has always been one of my fave labels and truth is you don’t have to dig to deep to find Motown gems as it was such a popular label. In more recent times loads of previously unreleased Motown tracks have surfaced solidifying my admiration for the Motown groove.

Shout also has to go to the many Hip hop producers that helped in keeping the groove alive through sampling.

check it out.

serve or get served – freddie gibbs

love this video. that freddie gibbs gangsta shit… crazy tho.

“trill as bobby seale, i’m the new rendition of it.”

“This video is an experiment in wiggle stereoscopy. Shot on a pair of 7D’s with the same lenses. Shouts out to Statik Selektah on the beat, Fabian Tejada for the titles, Javier Goin for the help and Josh Harris for the roof. Download the “no dj” version of Str8 Killa No Filla here:”

respect ya passion - nipsey hussle

i don’t care if i have to post this tape track by track. so far, it deserves it. motivation + inspiration music from nipsey. i already said i really fux with nipsey. and this track is yet another reason of exactly why.

honesty. passion. uncompromising. human.

when huey p. newton spoke passionately about organizing “the brothers on the block” it was exactly this type of passion, intelligence and commitment that he was speaking to.

nipsey hussle is more of a revolutionary then the vast majority of rappers who purport to be. we don’t have to get into his gangster. but we can if it’s to be debated.

autonomy + loyalty. conflicting ideas carried purposefully forward. i respect this artist like few others right now.
