The guy who helped turn college basketball games into 40 minutes of advertisement thinks that the players should reap some of the financial benefits. And it’ll be on PBS to boot!
Hype Men Present: Kanye West’s First Beats →
dubraontherocks: A Collection of Kanye West’s first beats. All unreleased stuff. A couple of the beats were used on random albums, (i.e. #13 was used on Talib Kweli’s “Quality”). But this shows what hard work can do for you. It’s clear that Kanye knew what he was doing, musically. But mainstream rap wasn’t ready for his style. Not that it was edge, provocative, or...

Beats that KNOCK: Thoughts on Beats →
beatknock: I consider a good sample GOLD. “Good” meaning one with no obstructions; a vivid and clear section of a song that I can manipulate in ways no one would ever know the complexity of. In some cases I have made 3-4different sounding beats out of one section of a song, there are just so many ways to flip it. I guess what Im getting at is the idea that, if you chop a sample in a clever...
Scottie Wilbekin and Casey Prather walked in to the barber shop while I was getting a cut today. Not sure why they didn’t invite Parsons, cause he needs grooming more than either of them.

Spring Break 2011: Athens, GA
I spent my spring break in Athens, Georgia helping to build a house with Habitat for Humanity. Yea, I wear jorts. I was on the radio being interviewed about the program and I was quoted in a newspaper article about some of the work. (Skip the first 2:30, traffic and intro)

uomodelinquente-deactivated2012 asked: I will say that Lil B and Waka are smart because they know how to make people like their stuff, they make music that you just want to hype to, but they're dumb, and it is kind of societies fault for making these guys think that they're good!

Helvetica Not everyone has a thing for the subtleties in life. Of all things in the sexy world of graphic design, a documentary about a font probably shouldn’t intrigue most people. For those of us not in the majority, the documentary by Gary Hustwit about Helvetica creates an effective portrait of the ubiquitous typeface. The pretentious designers’ discussions about the beauty and...
Ghostface Killah, who was my favorite person on the Twitter thing, is now my favorite person on the internets.
jjlouis: Ken Robinson says school kills creativity And I agree. Yes, the concept of public school is rigid, therefore arts would have to be limited due to the structure of the system. I’m fine with maths and science being taught with more emphasis because they can lead to more productive careers that don’t depend on physical talent. I’m all for arts education though. To...
