THE FRESHMAN f. MARTY JAMES - CONTACT (NEW MUSIC DOWNLOAD)

0 comments





Some talent that Bad Lucc put me up on awhile ago and I actually posted one of their tracks last year.  This is a new song featuring Marty James and is produced by THX.  Word on the streets is that THX will be producing their next project entirely.  Sounds good already and the track goes.  Something to break away from the normal hip hop boom bap I supply you guys with.  This is just cool music.  Peep it.



EL PREZ & THE FCC: LEADERS OF THE NEW COOL (PHOTOS)

1 comments




















Here are a couple pictures my lil homie Matthieux took during El Prez' set at the Leaders of the New Cool show this past Tuesday.  Due to some technical difficulties Prez wasn't able to deliver the full set for a number of his fans that showed up but those who were there enjoyed the brief yet VERY LIVE set.  Prez even brought out the band and had the crowd rocking to tracks from Animal Style that have yet to be released yet.  If you want to see more pics from El Prez' set featuring the FCC simply go here.  And expect to see more photos via Matthieux on the blog as he'll be working with Eazee Street on future projects.  To see more of his prior work check out his site here.

Another day on the road, the Lake Show came to Indiana and left with a 19pt win.  Kobe dropped 29 and thought of flirting with a triple double again and Bynum dropped 27 & 12.  Pau and Lamar also picked up double doubles.  The Lake Show dominated on all stats (points in the paint, shooting percentage, rebounds and free throws).  Highlights up top.

LOS ANGELES LAKERS UPDATES : KOBE "GOT OBAMA ON THE TEXT"

0 comments


As part of their East Coast trip the Los Angeles Lakers visit President Barack Obama at the White House to be honored as the NBA Champs.  Very historical as the Lakers are the first NBA team to meet our first African American president.  A good look for the city, a good look for the team.  Also of note is that no matter how cocky or conceited some may say Kobe is, it's very evident he was excited and humbled at the chance to meet Barack Obama and be honored by him.  I'm trying to meet them both.

SHAWN CHRYSTOPHER - HARD (FREESTYLE)

0 comments


I thought I leaked this already but I see I didn't...it's probably that I've had this song bumping on my iTunes for some time.  The thing about this song, I heard Shawn's version before I ever heard Rihanna's. I'll stick to this one, sorry Ri Ri.  Enjoy, Inglewood up to all my 'Wood representers out there.
