The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!

Rebel Without A Pause....

There's been a lot of dry snitchin here recently.

And somebody asked me recently...

"Why do you do this?"

Not for nothin though, it's simple.

I copped and pasted what I posted on a messageboard recently.

"half these fags used to be like "yo i got that new _____" but never tell where they got it, nor be around to share that shit on here or AIM.

I hated that.

...with a passion.

so i started diggin & kept diggin til i found different boards and other random sources.

now, of course right now, i ain't yellin out everywhere i get these shits from.

some i steal/leech just like everyone else

some, people up and send me links and i up quite a few myself.

but while i won't tell you where i'm gettin'em, i (with the little crew elves;) ) try my damnedest to make sure you get them as soon as i do.

because what these greedy bastards who hoard the shit don't realize is nobody gives a fuck how exclusive you are....including me in that list. pass it along.

...and sharing is caring motherfuckers

oh's the internet.

it's not that serious.

so now, you help.

take out them dusty cd's are rip a few and up'em.

or rip some of that shit off your ipod.

and give me some fresh links to share/leech/steal haha"

just playing...but for real, share that shit.

So in the spirit of fuck'em to these stoolpigeon cats singing they artist who said fuck musical standards & pushed the envelope, paying tribute to a boxer who said fuck'em to just about everything society had to say.

Miles Davis - Jack Johnson

If you haven't seen this movie, go get a late pass. This movie and soundtrack revolutionized reggae music in the early 70's and is still relevant due to it's exposure of Industry Rule #4080.

Jimmy Cliff - The Harder They Come

A video for my favorite song from the album...

Kanye West feat. Adam Levine - "Heard'em Say" Video

And I gotta give a big dookie rope chain shoutout to these cats making noise, representing the real hip-hop and showing love all the way from the 206. Right about now, these cats represent the true essence of all the OG aspects of hip-hop and need to be saluted. Take a second to check for'em and we'll have more music and info on them coming soon.

And catch the streaming audio of DJ B-Mello on "Street Sounds" on Sundays from 6 - 9PM.

Last but not least, the homie Dally ain't announced it to you all but he's practicing bigamy...son's got another love besides helping us. Peep his new shit, Dally's Personal.

Today, he's rockin with

- Okwerdz - Random Acts of Music
- Tim Dog - Penicillin On Wax
- Tommy Boy's Greatest Beats(The First 15 Years 1981-1996)[boxset]
- Terminator X & The Valley of the Jeep Beets
