The Ten Chickenhead Commandments...

Compiled by Retro, Gotty™, Big Fame One & PrurientSole...

Please note, these are not the end-all of how you should handle certain types of females. Just a general guide presented by a few of us based of experiences. No chickenheads were harmed during the creation of this list.

1. Never let them hoes stay the night...period.

2. If you go to her house, never let her drive. Always have an out if you gotta be out.

3. Wrap it up, chicks these days want babies, or at least thats what I have learned watching Maury and his "My teenage daughter is outta control shit". I don't even want to get into what I learn watching the damn "Are one of these 14 dudes my babies daddy?" shows.

4. No cellie number for her, especially if you got a girl. *67 is your friend.

5. While we're mentioning phones, ALWAYS remember, after making a phone call, to pick the phone back up and hit a number, don't let a B chick fuck you up with an A chick on some redial shit.

6. Make sure mansuace is disposed of properly, chicks have been known to keep it in their mouth for later use, and pull a turkey baster out for use with a disposed condom. Throw a little tabasco in the condom before tossing it (you'll know if she tries to be shady) or flush it, hell it ain't your toilet right?

7. Never leave'em alone in your room/crib. Not even for a few seconds, cause chances are something WILL go missing or will be snooped thru. This rule shall apply to ladies & smutbuckets. Women by nature are curious creatures.

8. After sex, if she's talking about stuff she needs to do regarding money (ie. "i need to go to the beauty shop/get my nails done/go gorcery shopping"), that's her subtle way of telling you that she's a hooker. Take yourself to the clinic asap cuz chances are that bitch burned you.

9. If you fuckin a girl your age who's grandma is younger than your moms, she's from a long line of chickenheads

10. If she turns into a stage five clinger, four words should cure her...





... follow that up with "So be on the look-out down there."

She'll stop talking with you, and she can't blab to her co-workers/friends that y'all messed around because she doesn't want it being revealed that she "has" genital warts.

It seems as if Cam is still trying to get @ Jay with his latest diss (click to listen), but it looks as if his ploy isn't working judging by his Soundscan numbers this week.

Note to Cam - I'm not a Jay-rider, but just stop throwing rocks @ the's entertaining but far from effective it seems.

"La La La..."

I told you a few weeks ago, you all were about to witness a dynasty like no other.

It's coming no homo.

Parts of the plans for growth are being revealed.

We asked for writers.

We appreciate the response we've recieved.

We've had so many folk who said they'd be down to contribute in any way possible.

We love that.

And while I've tried to answer each and every email with a personal response, it gets redundant saying the same thing.

Plus I realized we need more than just writers to make this thing of ours grow in the direction we foresee.

So for writers, prospective contributors, people with time on your hands and just want to help, we set up something to help clear things up & answer some questions.

I fucks with Model Minority

While you're checking for us, I usually stroll over & check for her.

She's witty, wise & entertaining.

And I loved this post she made because in it's essence she described what me & my dudes felt when we first heard this track.

So, I asked her to let me jack her post.

Isn't that image hella fresh. Its actually on a hoodie. I don't know sponge bob. I have been feeling the graphic heavy, skater meets hippety hop type jawns lately. The dope thing about copyright law is that THE artist HAVE A RIGHT to incorporate M-O-B-B into their art. I heart america. I heart the old M-O-BB too.



Blog family. I am in HIP- HOP HAPPYLAND. I managed to "PROCURE" "The World Is Yours" remix , where he says in the Hook, "Keep the La's inna Air". Dude. When I heard
that sh*yesterday, I started dancing around. That song, in and of it self, in its brief three minutes represents me in 94, and who I wanted to be. Someone, actually, I think my first ol' boy, gave it to me on a memorex mix tape, but it was f*cked up because the song would cut off at the end of the tape .
"The fiend of hip hop/ got me stuck like crack pipe."
[ Ol' boy is sayin' that the crack is like the rap, and he stuck on stupid. Dayuuum GINNNNAH.]

"Holding a stolen cops glock w/ g-notes in my hand."
[ First of all dude. This sounds like nothing but trouble. But as soon as he said it, I had a mental image of that scene in Clockers where the young buck was holdin
g the bench down. Talk about a saturated visual. Mental note to self, saturated visuals is hella fresh.].

"The mic is my religion/ the system is the devils lasso."
[ Did god put him on earth to make such poetic songs. Could you imagine the fights that he and Kelis has. Does he leave her little notes. Prolly poetic text messages hunh. I know>>>>hopeless romantic = me<<<<<<]

For nas bloggery, peep fletch and his family.



Up bloggin' as the sun rises. God. I love life.


New interview with Rakim where he discusses Nas's son
g, his new label and how it feels to perform in '06, and his family.
Peace to spine mag.

For You Doom fans...

"Monster's Inc."

To all my bloggers & blog family,

We're currently looking for two to three dedicated, knowledgable, work-for-free, create one or two posts per week type future literary geniuses....shit you don't even have to be a literary genius (look at me).

You just have to 1.) want to write & have your own thoughts 2.) love hip-hop or music in general and 3.) the drive to help us keep up the pace of posting daily...

Is that you?

Get at us!

This beats you starting up your own little crummy blog that only gets 100 visitors per day. Fuck being nice about this shit...cats steadily emailing like "yo I started up my own thing because of you"...bullshit.

Bring your work & ideas here, get noticed & an established readership...we've done the dirty work of gettin it off the ground so you don't have to. Help keep the movement moving.

See I got visions of a "Blog Commission" a la Biggie...e-Cosa Nostra to the fullest, where several strong writers come together & take over the that mainstream entities are trying to get in, it's either move or get moved on & rolled over. And we grassroots commonfolk can do it much better than the corporate let's do it.

Get at us.

Your friend,


Jack of Spades
has to be Dally's brother.

Or at least his cousin.

They will now simply be referred to as Monster's Inc.

Jack shot me an email that said "Since I love you guys so much, thought I'd contribute a little with a 'little' Wu & Fam"

Turns out, "a little" is a subjective term. Very subjective.

What follows is a lot of Wu that we'll try to break down over the next few days as to not overwhelm you...

No reups homie.

You motherfuckers were too cheap to cop us harddrives so ain't no way, even amongst us, that we could save all this (Big up to Great Scott though! Appreciate that my dude). Get it while it's hot.

Props to Jack of Spades...

"Mommy What's A Gravedigga?"...

For no particular reason, this album has gotten back into rotation for me. I think I found it laying around at another blog.

A precursor to when artists & superproducers would work together, the gravediggaz features two of the finest of all-time, RZA & Prince Paul.

Of all the Wu offshoots, this may have been the shining star.

Unfortunately, the gospel of this album has become something of a lost book of the Bible.

And this was back when RZA was still on top of his shit.

It was a paradox - an album that was supposed to be dark (it was) had some of the cleanest production; the haunting lyrics of nightmares, hallucinations, & murder was prolly one of the best sources to explain the source of frustration for so many younger people; and on an album that was portrayed as "devilish", it actually contained four strong practicing members of the Islamic faith.

Paradox at it's finest.

"Diary Of A Madman" and "1-800-Suicide" both tore up the mixtapes during the time when this album was out.

But for a break from the "horrorcore" aesthetic of the album & to see what made it purely beautiful, you'd have to give a listen to two tracks that are classic hip-hop in its purest sense, "Graveyard Chamber" and "6 Feet Deep." Since it wasn't exactly promoted as a mainstream release, the crew members take chances, from the producers using a variety of samples to everybody involved having fun experimenting with vocal inflections & rhyme patterns.

I be the Bushwick dutchmaster rapper
I love black women and I hate fuckin crackers
Check me yo
My breath stink 'cause I smoke skunk punk
everyday of the month
in a dutchmaster fuckin blunt
Bust the cliche
Niggas talkin he-say-she-say about me
ya bitch-ass-niggas
Y'all not ass, y'all titty
y'all style is shitty
How dare you try to represent New York fuckin City
I been down since BVDs and dew rags
shelltops and shags
I was a little badass with regular and tre bags
Always tryin to get shit I never had
'cause times is bad like luck
That's why I don't give a fuck
I dig up my nose and my butt
on the bus or the train
This is for niggas walkin in the rain
listenin to they walkman(e)
talkin the New York fuckin slang

"Graveyard Chamber"

It really doesn't get much better.

Gravediggaz - Six Feet Deep

I can't take any credit for this collective, that credit is reserved for CS.SA for putting me on & the cats @ Palms Out Sounds for puttin' it out there...

T.I. - "What You Know" (Ross Hogg Remix)*
Blackstar ft. Common & Black Thought - "Respiration" (Pete Rock Remix)*
Nas - "It Ain't Hard to Tell" (Dangermouse Remix)
Slick Rick - "It's A Boy" (Pete Rock Remix)*
Timbaland & Magoo ft. Missy - "Luv 2 Luv U" (Remix)
Gravediggaz - "Nowhere to Run" (Portishead Remix)
The Verve - "Bittersweet Symphony" (James Lavelle Remix)
Lil' Kim - "The Jump Off" (Prinz Valium Remix)*
Mos Def - "Umi Says" (Zero 7 Remix)
Depeche Mode - "In Your Room" (Portishead Remix)*

It looks like money is doing his own hosting over there. So instead of sending all you leechers over there to kill their bandwith, I took a sec to upload it for everybody's benefit.

The tracks take on a whole different feel, ranging from dance movement to straight cool out to TIP seeming as if he's on some rude bwoy shit a la his "I'm Serious" days. If for nothing more, the "Respiration" & "Umi Says" remixes are worth a listen. Hearing the Thought, Com, Talib & Mos over Pete Rock's jazzy pace is a mesh made in heaven.

I don't care what nobody says, I love it and think he's at his best when Lil Boosie gets on a beat & spits about these smuts in all his youthful, blissful age Too Short shit. Listen as he runs thru his Award Tour of freaks over this slow wailing track.

Drop down & get yo' Dilla on...nah I'm buggin'. But truly there's a reason why the man was held in such high-esteeem and part of it was because he made simple sound so sweet..."Hey, hey, hey, h-hey, hey/What you say, get this money/If they say what you gon do today, just say/Hey I wanna get paid..."

Now how the hell do you put Gravediggaz, Lil Boosie & J. Dilla all in one post?

It's all still hip-hop in its various forms.

Respect it.

Sunday Singles


Well, what can I say?

The Roots put on a perfomance that words cannot capture.

In a feeble attempt to even try to do justice, initial words that come to mind...




Honestly, either the sound system was shitty or the band was overbearingly loud because I couldn't decipher what hell Black Thought was rhyming for 75% of the show but it didn't hamper the energy for the group or the crowd from my perspective.

Highlights of the show...

1. Miri Ben Ari's set - I liked her work previously in a "this is different" type of way...wasn't sure if she could carry a whole album, & damn sure wasn't expecting to see her rock a live solo set at the show...but she did it well. Hearing her speak for the first time was quite funny & cute considering her Israeli accent. She masterfully ripped a rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" and did some brilliant covers, which leads me to...

2. The Roots...goddamn these dudes almost shut the place down the last 20-30 minutes of their set by covering everything under the sun, from "It's Going Down" to Biggie & ODB shit all the way to "Smooth Criminal", which officially had the hardest of the hard with their arms in the air. The tribute to Dilla during the interlude before they took stage was powerfully. The ability to cover so much and so many genres is one quality I wish more acts would incorporate into their stage shows. It opens so many avenues in which artists can travel and it's much better than some cat walking side to side ranting off lyrics. Entertain us please with showmanship!

3. A roughly 15 minute version of "You Got Me"...speechless. Everybody in the crowd zoned out to that joint as well as "Act Too (Love Of My Life).

4. The crowd that it brings/white people - offense but you could just tell the white people were there. White people are "looser" than Black folks, especially after a few beers. Dancing & moving...which you'd be hard pressed to get Black folks to do intially...the white people were just grooving lol...and the, I know they say Black folks are bad about smoking in public, but it was a white chick beside me who broke the ice & started pullin from a pipe early with no shame lol. The diversity was kinda cool though because after an hour or so into The Roots set I seen some big-boned sister backin it up on an American Eagle white dude with a Coors in his hand and they both looked as if they were playfully enjoying it lol.

5. Solos...I think the only one who didn't get a highlighted solo, for whatever reasons, was Kamaal. ?Love & the cat on drums with! My dude was animated and just blacked the fuck out! I don't know who the cat was on guitar (not a band member that I know of) but he spazzed out as well.

Overall, my ears are still ringing & my legs are sore...I can't really think of any other show were I felt this fuckin overwhelmed physically afterwards. I may have swimmer's ear as well lol.

Was it worth it?

Does a bear shit in the woods and wipe his ass on a fluffy white rabbit?

In other words, hellmotherfuckinyeah!

Check for tour dates near your city. Take ya ass out there & show the support we fuckin downloaders always say we'll show.
