The Muthaf#%$n Rapture got my drawing of his wife @MoneyStax tatted on his arm

 Nothing gets rid of the frustration like getting tagged in a Facebook photo of a drawing you did of a rapper you like tattooed on the arm of another rapper you like...

"Look at his shiny necklace. The way he brags about it makes it less impressive..." -Rhymefest

Man, I'm in a crappy mood, but the mix of the silky feelgood beat by J. Rhodes and a flurry of fed up bars by Rhymefest actually made me feel better...

#downloadThis- The Death of ADAM (Warlock) by @UncommonNasa and Waatu (w/Prince Po, Elucid & Subtitle)

My familiarity with Nasa started with his making beats for dudes like C-Rayz Walz to rap on, but I eventually found out that he grabbed the mic on occasion too, under the moniker Adam Warlock. The Death of Adam is Nasa's way of putting that alias to rest with the help of some dope remixes by Waatu.

"We're all initiated into the League of Shadows. I told Raven to keep her eye on the Sparrow..." -Vast Aire

I am already on record as having said that the team behind The Cold Vein had already made the best record they would ever make in their lives. That isn't a diss. Cold Vein is just that good. R.A.P Music, the album El-Producto did with Killer Mike didn't change my opinion about that, and neither did these three new Cannibal Ox songs. But like El and Mike's record, this Gotham maxi-single sure is dope...

NPR's "Morning Edition" gives props to "Adventure Time"

Happy Birthday to animation Producer/Director @LeSeanThomas (Black Dynamite).

If Google can be believed, June 17th is the born-on date for animation director, producer, and international man of mystery LeSean Thomas. In the circles I run in, LeS is kind of a big deal...

DOPE Father's Day Gift- "BLACK COUNT" by Tom Reiss

My wife is very good at buying good Father's Day gifts. This Father's Day, she surprised me with a copy of Tom Reiss's NY Times Bestseller The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo, which I have wanted BAD since I first heard about it on NPR last fall.

Luke Cage, Monica Rambeau, Falcon, Blue Marvel and Power Man on one team?

I have been saying for a while that eventually every hero in the Marvel U will be either an X-man or an Avenger (or both). I’m feeling more like a genius every day… But seriously, Marvel is slowly revealing the lineup of their upcoming book MinoriTeam Mighty Avengers, which is due to drop this fall, and I guess this is a good time for me to voice my opinion about it...

CLASSIC MATERIAL- "Looney Tunes: A Hound for Trouble"
