SHIRT dives deep into his soul to share a couple truths about the world around him. In New York City — where he calls home — it’s a dog eat dog world like any other major metropolis. However, with thinkers like him, at least we know there’s some emcees looking to change the world for the better. It can’t all be money, cash h*es. Produced by Trac-Quada.

eminem-proof-westwood-freestyle

1999 was a great year for hip-hop. Around that time I had a lot of Rawkus records in rotation, and I was definitely intrigued by the Slim Shady LP. Around that time, Eminem and Proof shot over to the U.K. to drop some bars with Tim Westwood. It’s definitely ones session that needs to be archived in your iTunes for repeated listening. Give it a spin after the jump.

You an also download the freestyle via Soundcloud here.

In the world overtaken by trap rap and edm raps, Grand Puba remains as one of the voices that can bring it all home for me. As a part of Brand Nubian, he helped the group spread their movement across the globe. And then as a solo artist, Puba brought us a number of quality pieces of music. No matter the weather, I’ll take a performance over from the god over at least %90 of these new cats.

friends-reunion

As an avid Seinfeld fanatic, I always felt Friends was its red-headed stepchild. And I’ll never understand the people who love the show — like my ex. People in New York do not act or talk like that…

Anyway, before I get all off topic, I can’t deny its fanbase so this upcoming reunion (of sorts) is some pretty big news. Last night, the Television Critics Association’s network entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt said NBC will be broadasting a primetime special to celebrate iconic TV director James Burrows timed to his 1000th episode on TV — including a rumored Friends reunion with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer in the works.

“I shouldn’t go into detail,” Greenblatt said, when asked if the appearance was a legitimate reunion of all six actors filming at the same time. “I’m hoping that all six of them will be there in the same room at the same time. I don’t know, logistically, if we can pull that off.”

It’s not a new music video or record, but a short vignette that encourages hard work and determination. K. Dot even stars in the short visuals as he rolls around with a young friend, droppin’ game on the shorty.
