Now I never ever write R.I.P. posts, but this one is having a huge effect on me. Guru, 1/2 of the legendary group Gangstarr, passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. His music has played a huge part in my life as far as what has made the producer/Dj that I am today. I remember when I first heard Mass Appeal (I taped it on VHS) and thought […]
If you’re a Twitter user (like myself), I’m sure you know this guy and perhaps you might even be this guy/gal. You know the dude that constantly claims he needs NO sleep and feels the need to tweet it on a bi-hourly basis along with his “grindin” tweets. Well….I hate to break it to you buddy, you’re not “grinding”. And furthermore, unless you’re a robot (in the literal sense)….you need […]
1 point loss for rappers….again
I’m sure by now you nerds have been hearing about all the hype surrounding Shyne and the crazy advance he received from LA Reid. First and foremost, I’ll be the first to admit that I used to be a Shyne fan (even when all my friends thought he was wack, I held him down *pause*).

So last week I started a Twitter contest for all Relatives Abroad listeners to participate in. I have narrowed down the entries to these top 5 and now you, my readers, will decide which listener should receive a free CD.

If you haven’t seen Erykah’s window seat video as of yet then I’m not sure what to say to you as a fellow human being…if you’re a living human that is. Anyways, at the very beginning of her video, you will notice the Inspired by Matt and Kim opening. Ms. Badu drew her inpriration from the Brooklyn duo’s 2009 video Lessons Learned.
I know I’m late on announcing the winner of the free CD, but I’ve been swamped nerds. We (yes, I refer to myself as ‘we’ from time to time) have surpassed well over 100 downloads early this week and I’ll probably do another giveaway at 1000 downloads. I figure it would be messed up to post the winner’s email publicly here, so I’ll shoot you an email over the weekend […]

History of Graffiti: DIRTY THIRTY CREW from Kane One on Vimeo. Art history class offered at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Students will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. Dopeness….
I spotted this over at Revok’s blog and it is pretty interesting. I don’t want to give the video away before you watch, but all I’m going to say is the scare tactics used by Fox never ceases to amaze me.
