The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!

Prisoner of Hope

Somebody said that to me yesterday and it sounded so eloquent I figured I'd pass it along. Many times, we do put our faith in and base our dreams around those who continue to let us down.

You know we try to bring it to you as soon as we can. This is no exception.

R. Kelly - TP3.Com Reloaded

Enjoy now and then decide if you want to purchase the retail on July 5.

We been slow on this one. Had it for a few days but haven't had a chance to up it until now.

Cassidy - I'm A Hustla (Retail)

And in the continuing quest to give you that old school.

Nina Simone - I Put A Spell On You (1964) and Pastel Blue (1964)

I swear if you ain't up on Nina Simone you need your music pass revoked. She's inspired so many in so many different genres. She's your favorite singer's favorite singer and she's been sampled heavily throughout hip-hop.

And now some randomness...

I like this cut, eff what you heard or what preconcieved notions you have. 3-6 puts out some the hottest beats right now.

Lil Wyte feat. DJ Paul - "Bye 2 Da Bad Guy"

"More drama is on the way for R. Kelly. The singer has completed a mini movie for his five-part song, "Trapped in the Closet," and at the end, viewers are promised that chapters 6-10 are on the way soon. All five videos that comprise "Trapped in the Closet" will be released on a DVD accompanying Kelly's new album, TP3 Reloaded, which lands in stores July 5.
