Sound Bombing


I like some of the new muzik coming out. The infusion of fresh rhymes and production have changed my feelings like the seasons. I call this post sound bombing in tribute to the Rawkus Records. They had a series called Soundbombing started in 1997 which featured upcoming artists and industry heavyweights.

Below is my new dance track called "Thro Yo Hands Up." Its a blend of party rhymes, funky house beats and allot of bounce. There's also muzik from Krs One, Diz Gibran (the sample is coconuts), Blaq Poet, and Jae Ellis.

The video McDonald's doesn't want you to see!!!!


The video below is disturbing and might make you stop eating egg McMuffins. Undercover footage of McDonald's egg supplier Sparboe performing heinous acts of animal cruelty. I was always told that people just want the burger, they don't care how its made. This video shows how its made and its costing McDonald's millions in bad press. The group Mercy for Animals showed cases of animal cruelty at five facilities in Iowa, Minnesota and Colorado. Sparboe produces 300 million eggs a year, in regular, liquid, frozen and dried form, and ships them to restaurants and stores across the country.

Since this video was released McDonald's, Walmart and Target dropped Sparboe, one of the nation's largest egg suppliers. Bob Langert, McDonald's vice president for sustainability, said in a statement. "The behavior on tape is disturbing and completely unacceptable. McDonald's wants to assure our customers that we demand humane treatment of animals by our suppliers." Watch the video below to understand why.

Check the Rhyme


Below is music by some real spit boxers. I've been a fan of Immortal Technique for years. He always comes with thought provoking, lyrical verses that compel the listener pay attention to the underlying message. 

Vakill is an underground legend from Chicago that has worked with some of the best MC's in the business. He's released several projects and does allot of music with the Molemen. Check the rhymes by them and the new crew triple threat for some real Hip-Hop.

Truth... Its The New Hate


Below is one of the best speeches to humanity ever written…said by one of the most unlikely people. Here is a speech made by funny man Charles “Charlie“ Chaplin


He was known professionally for his long history of comedy in films. In a scene made from one of his movies, Charles makes an inspirational speech made to uplift humanity. The message behind the speech is the unification of mankind beyond race, color or status. Bridging the gap between the poor, middle-class and rich so all can live in a harmonious society

I don’t know what year it was done or from what movie but regardless this is hands down one of the best speeches ever written. Take a listen and judge for yourself. If you like it pass the link on to a friend, it could brighten up their day. “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.George Orwell

Brand New Muzik


The seas of time flow endlessly. Each life no matter how majestic or important is a mere pebble. Shining briefly in the sun before being carried away by its waves. 

I often think of the passage of time when listening to music lately. Hip-Hop has evolved so much since the days of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five "The Message". It was once a medium to breakdown social barriers, raise awareness, and ignite social change.

Now mainstream Hip-Hop is a means for artists to promote their newest venture. Media hype to sell a phone, liquor, clothing or accessory. I miss the variety that 90's Hip-Hop had. There was hardcore, conscious, gangsta and even horror Hip-Hop courtesy of the Gravediggaz. What the 90's had that is almost non-existent today is variety. There was a diversity of elements that made Hip-Hop a musical genre like no other.

Now I can listen to hours of music and have 80% cover the same subject matter Cars, Money, Drugs, Guns and Girls. Don't get it twisted, that is part of the foundation of Hip-Hop but back in the day, the people rappin that lifestyle were actually living it. Most of the catz rappin about that lifestyle now have only seen it on their television. I'm not hatin... I just miss the diversity. 

After searching through numerous artists and videos I posted some brand new muzik by up and coming as well as established artists. What I like is the return of the cypher. Tracks with 7 or 8 MC's so the listener gets a feel of how different styles can compliment each other over a beat. Check out how DJ Diamond Kuts puts it down for Philly.

Album Reviews


The fall season is upon us in Holland and its been raining like the end of days. I keep expecting an ark to float by filled with exotic animals. The rain has given me a chance to listen to some dope tunes.  I never review music that I don't like cuz I don't believe in giving bad press. If you're familiar with my previous posts you know how I grade music. If you're unfamiliar here's the scoop. I rate in a five star system 5 being the highest 1 the lowest, check my older posts for a more in depth breakdown. With that said...lets get it in. 



Kanye West & Jay Z - Watch The Throne  *** (3)


Perhaps my expectations were to high but when two moguls get thrown in the tank together I expected to hear magic. The flows are nice, the beats are nice, but its just that...nice. There are a few dope productions on the album but overall its average nice. If you're a Jay Z or Kanye fan it can be a nice addition to your collection.




Pete Rock & Smif-N-Wessun - Monumental **** (4.25) 


This album lives up to the name. Pete Rock is known for making classic beats and it seems like he saved some of the best tracks for this project. Smif-N-Wessun spit rhymes like two hungry young rappers looking for a deal. The chemistry between the three comes off as a smooth blend of classic Hip-Hop with new flavor.  There are guest appearances by Sean Price, Memphis Bleek, Styles P, Raekwon, Bun B, and several other heavy hitters. Standout songs like That's Hard, Feel Me, This One, and Night Time give the album a cypher like quality that can appeal to mainstream or underground listeners.




Canibus & Keith Murray - In Gods We Trust: Crush Microphones to Dust  *** (3.75)


I was waiting for this album to be released. Canibus is a lyrical monster and I've been a fan since his work with the Lost Boyz. By the time 1st round K.O. was released he was already a well respected MC. Keith Murray is no slouch when it comes to spittin. As a member of the Def Squad he used to go toe to toe with Redman and Erick Sermon. His track "The most beautifullest thing is this world" is still considered a Hip-Hop classic. The two lyricists have good chemistry and better rhymes. The only thing that needed improvement was a few of their beats. The majority of the production is on point and I would definitely recommend this album to any Canibus or Keith Murray fan.  




The Game – The Red Album ** (2.75)


The Game had made a name for himself with a mix of controversy (his blood gang affiliation), Beef with former label mate 50cent and by name dropping other artists in his rhymes. The Documentary helped bring the West back while making the game more than just another G-Unit soldier. This project had potential but the one dimensional subject matter and multitude of gang references weigh it down. The Red Album features production by Dr. Dre and a few other industry heavy weights. Overall this album has a few good tracks but its not going to make Game the west-coast legend he aspires to be.   

Next album review will be only underground artists. The mainstream is over saturated with artists who have all the promotion and radio play but rhymes, delivery and subject matter is lacking. Some of the new tracks I've been listening to have all these qualities minus the budget.

Super Earth Found


A planet with Earth like conditions has been discovered. The Planet was discovered by HARPS (High Accuracy Radial Planet Searcher) and has four times the mass of Earth. It's also close enough to its yellow sun to support life and since its close to its yellow sun the planet named HD 85512 B has a consistent temperature of seventy-seven degrees. It is a world almost four times the size of Earth and is located 36 light-years away in the constellation Vela.

The planet exists in what scientists term the habitable zone. This means its in the area around a star where water could exist in liquid form, which would make a potential planet livable. To date scientists have found more than 50 new planets and 16 potentially habitable ones. I posted clips from the news interview from CNN and other media outlets on this planet and other Astronomical discoveries.

Tyger Vinum live


I've been doing allot of shows lately in between working on new music. My most recent show was at the Little Stage in Berlin on September 3rd. The venue was nice, the vibe was cool, and the people know how to party. 

Before that I did a show  at the CC Muziek Cafe in Amsterdam on August 16th. That was a different vibe all together. The venue was more of a lounge performer set-up. There were instruments of all types on the stage for singer/songwriters to display their talent. The audience was a mix of middle aged to young Dutch and international people who weren't ready for me to unleash the beast.

Tyger Vinum live was a one hour set with my homie DJ Illskillz playing mostly new material and a few older joints. The crowd didn't know how to react at first but after the two songs they were hungry for more. Below I posted clips from the CC Muziek Cafe show for those who want to see how I get busy. I didn't have a camera for my last show in Berlin but I'll be back doing a show at the Acud Session Cafe on November 18th so I'll have some footage from that performance to post.

Elenin Comet Causing Earthquakes September 2011


The world has natural disasters all the time, its part of our history. Over the last few years the disasters such as earthquakes, climate change and numerous others have increased in frequency and strength. According to a group of astronomers and scientists its because a comet or dwarf star with a mass greater than Jupiter has been flying towards the Earth.

The celestial bodies name is ELEnin and its been known about since 1965 and causing magnetic pole migration since about 2004. The research indicates that Earth will experience a polar shift around 9/26 to 9/27, when the Sun, Earth and this ELE (Extinction Level Event) object go into alignment on the autumn equinox

Below is a video giving detailed information about Elenin and its history with the Earth. What I like about the video is that it encourages watchers to conduct your own research. Then gives resources on how to do it. Whether you believe the video or not it never hurts to watch and be informed. I also added a few other videos in the subject to provide more info.

Eye Bombing


I love graff art! Back in my teens I used to do bubble letters on whatever surface I could find. As I got older, I went from bubble letters to images then stopped all together in favor of writing rhymes. But I never stopped loving the craft. What I like to see in good pieces of graff work is a strong technique. Meaning if you're doing letters, the letters have good borders, colors and are easy to read. If you're combining text with images the same rules apply accept the image has to be creatively done to compliment whatever the text says. 

Below are some excellent pieces of graff art that are eye bombing the mind to capture your interest and imagination. I scoured the net searching for the names of all the artists work who appear in this post, but regrettably I couldn't find the names of everyone. Some of these pieces are so dope they look like they belong in a museum. Its sad to think that some of this art will be ravaged by the winds of time. As the old saying goes...nothing lasts forever, so enjoy it while its here. 

If you love graffiti art check out these posts (Local Graff Art and Local Graff Art 2) by clicking on the titles. The series is ongoing and features graff from different artists in Holland, so check back periodically for updates.

New Muzik


There's been a few new hot joints coming out. I like some of Black Robs new songs, Random Axe is one of the best super groups since Slaughterhouse started releasing music. Keeping in the spirit of banging tunes I give you new muzik from Pete Rock and Smif-n-Wesson featuring Buckshot. Their new album Monumental just came out and once I give it a thorough listen I'll put it in the album review. 

I've been a fan of the whole Boot Camp Clik since Black Moon, "Who Got Da Props?" I got into Pete Rock when I heard the track "They Reminisce Over You" with CL Smooth. That song is a classic so I have high expectations for the collabo album with Smif-n-Wes. Aside from them I got a few other hot tracks below.

How 2 Make Free Money


There is a simple way to make allot of money. First have a good idea, second...ask for it. I know that sounds like a no-brainer but its true. There's a name for this type of fund raising and its not beggar. Its called venture capitalist funding and its a respected profession. Venture capitalist fund raiser's are people who accept donations for starving children in Africa, for public schools, and land development. They are wall street business types that operate non-profit organizations. These are real people who care about making the world a better place.

The term venture capital means money provided to a high risk but also high potential start-up company. Most companies that need venture capital are biotechnology, or software companies that have some new invention they need funds for to market and produce their product. That is exactly what the people at donorschoose.org do, except they're fund raising for education. Their idea was so good they got a donation from miss money banks herself...Oprah Winfrey. She really supports education and is willing to donate to venture capitalists who come up with innovative ways to provide it. 

So the next time you hear a school or hospital was built in the US or some poverty stricken country from venture capital funding you'll know what it means. Also if you're feeling generous and would like to assist in donating to one of hundreds of education, housing and land development projects click on the links above.

Summer Jams


I haven't had allot of time for posting lately cuz I'm preparing for my shows. I have a show at the CC Muziek Cafe in Amsterdam on August 16th. Then one in Berlin, Germany at the Little Stage nightclub on September 3rd. In between all that I've been working on new music and other side ventures. To put it simple...I've been busy. 

In between work I've been listening to new music and found a few summer jams that are worth checking out. Also since it is summer time, I thought it was only proper to post the DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince classic tune Summertime with the other songs. I recently found out that the song was ghost written by Masta Ace.

Dolphin Speed Boat


I read this awesome interview on Popular Science talking about future water transportation. Some ingenious engineers decided to use nature as inspiration and made a speed boat named the Seabreacher designed after a dolphin. Not only does the Seabreacher look like a dolphin it also moves like one through the water and can emulate the dolphins ability jump into the air up to 18 feet. If you read my other article Animal Technology you know that this isn’t the first time designers used nature as inspiration. 

What makes the Seabreacher unique is that the engineers didn’t just take a few ideas from watching dolphins and add them to a speed boat. They tried to make a duplicate the design and make a mechanical one. Its animal technology on steroids…take a look at the video below.

Cajun Jumbalaya


I've been cooking up hot music in the kitchen like a pot of Cajun Jumbalaya. There's my new song posted below Redlight City which talks about all the things you see in Amsterdam on a Saturday night. Along with several other songs from my upcoming album Tha Audio Bully.

I also have a show August 16th at the CC Muziek Cafe. Its going to be raw, uncut, Hip-Hop so if you're around come hangout and party. Last, there's new music from a diverse group of artists. Check it out!

Cure to Aids and Cancer


A friend of mine got diagnosed with type one diabetes, which is incurable. I spent several days scouring the Internet learning as much about the disease as possible. I found no information on a cure for type one diabetes but I did find several videos with cures for Aids and Cancer.

I know that may sound strange since these diseases are the plagues of the 21st, but its true. There was a cure for Aids, Cancer and almost every other disease (bacterial and viral) that effects the blood found by scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in the early 1990s. They published a paper on the discovery in the March 20, 1991, Science News, page 247. What they discovered was low levels of electrification of the blood was proven to be a cure for almost all infectious diseases. The discovery was tested and confirmed by some of the biggest names in the scientific community. Why have you never heard of this discovery?

The information was suppressed because its more profitable to keep people sick than provide a cure. If pharmaceutical companies cured a disease they can only do it once. If they gave expensive and in most cases untested medication to suppress the symptoms of an illness they can do it indefinitely. This might sound like some conspiracy but the keep people sick formula was discussed in depth on a Michael Moore documentary. I’m not going to preach about how big, bad, business is making a profit of your illness, instead I’ll let you see for yourself that there is a cure.




Another possible cure to Cancer by means of alternative medicine is in the video below. This cure isn’t supported by the entire scientific community due to the demonization of hemp and marijuana. For free-thinkers willing to research the medicinal properties of hemp the information in the video below is beneficial. When searching for a non-invasive cure that doesn’t involve painful radiation treatments like chemotherapy.

Comic Movies


I was a huge comic fan when I was a kid. I would read the X-Men, Spider Man, Wolverine, Avengers, and most of the rest of the Marvel line. One of my favorites was X-Force because it was written like the team were average teens with adult problems. The new trend in Hollywood of turning popular comics in to movies has been really successful. 

The Superman franchise were the first successful comic movies. Followed by the Batman franchise which was successful for the first film but quickly lost popularity. I was never a DC comic reader because most of their characters had cheesy names and were to wholesome. It was like reading an episode of Leave it to Beaver except the Beaver and Wally wore spandex. After the release of the Batman movies I began reading his comic.

Thanks to advancements in C.G. (Computer Graphics) technology movies can push the envelope with special effects, making more films that resemble the action sequences found in the books. Which attracts readers like myself and new fans who may have never read the comics but are attracted to the movie. Below is my top fifteen list of comics that have been turned into movies that I think are worth watching. Also a list of movies that could have been done better.

1. Batman Dark Knight
2. Blade
3. The Crow
4. Time Cop
5. Sin City
6. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
7. Iron Man
8. X-Men
9. The Incredible Hulk
10. Spawn
11. V for Vendetta
12. Hell Boy
13. Watchmen
14. Dare Devil
15. Men in Black

These films were in a word “Wack!” They did no justice to the comic, were badly written, and most had bad acting as well.


Green Lantern
Ghost Rider
Fantastic Four
Cat Woman
The Spirit
Steel

Album Reviews


Summer is here, the weather is HOT and the music is even hotter. I never review music that I don't like, cuz I don't believe in giving bad press. If you're familiar with my previous posts you know how I grade music. If you're unfamiliar here's the scoop. I rate in a five star system 5 being the highest 1 the lowest...lets get it in. 


Random Axe - Random Axe **** (4.25)

Is what you get when you put three dope lyricist into one super group. Sean Price, Black Milk, and Guilty Simpson combined their talents and put out a solid first album. All the production was done by Black Milk and although a few of the beats were minimalist style like J-Dilla most of the tracks are banging. Black Milk and Guilty Simpson are from Detroit. Sean Price is a Bucktown, BK veteran and half of the Iconic group Helta Skelta. Combining their sounds and rhyming like their competing against each other make each track a competition of who can spit the dopest verse.   




EDO.G - A Face in the Crowd **** (4.25) 

EDO.G is a Boston legend. one third of the group Special Teamz he's been putting out music since the days of Big Daddy Kane. Although ED is a industry veteran he still rhymes like a hungry new cat spitting fire every verse. Boasting head nodding production and collabos with Made Men, M-1, Bishop Lemont, Special Teamz and a few others. This album is definitely worth listening to if you like hardcore east-coast lyricism.





Tech N9NE - All 6's and 7's **** (4.50)

Tech N9ne is a Kansas City spitter who came to fame as a member of The Regime. Now he has a label Strange Music and a roster of artists from all over the map. This album is more of a group album featuring most of his artists on each track. The album has several standout tracks like Pornographic featuring E-40 but it has to many skits. Regardless the KC MC has consistently put out dope music and this is a fine addition yo his catalog. If you're a Tech Nine fan I definitely recommend going out and buying a copy.





Curren$y - Weekend at Bernies *** (3.50)

The Baton Rouge MC has been building his buzz slow and steady with singles and videos. This album has production reminiscent of 90's west coast music. The flows are tight but most of the songs stick to the same subject matter. Women, weed and money, which is normal in Hip-Hop but it would've been nice to hear Curren$y diversify his subject matter on a few tracks. This is a good album and Curren$y spits some hot bars on a few songs, but overall its one dimensional and leaves listeners waiting for something different. 





Killer Mike - The Pl3dge **** (4.50)

Killer Mike is a Atlanta lyricist with a strong delivery and diverse subject matter. This album is in a word "dope." The production is on point, the flows are tight, and the albums filled with an assortment of content. Killer Mike aka Mike Bigga touches on serious subjects like the presidency, welfare and the plight of black people in these times of war. He does it all with wit and top notch lyricism. Standout tracks Ready Set Go, American Dream and Burn show that Killer Mike is in touch with current issues, and isn't afraid to voice his opinion.

Beauty and Pain


Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) is a Mexican surrealist painter best known for her use of vibrant colors and self-portraits. I found one of her paintings titled a few small nips in a book named The Visual Encyclopedia of Art. The violence depicted in the painting was no surprise since I've seen worse from artists. What surprised me is the fact that the painting was done by a woman. I was instantly captivated and curious to what images were depicted in her other works of art. 

What I found is that half of her works were self-portraits mixed with folk imagery. The other half were a blend of beauty and pain showing the different hardships she faced in life. Kahlo had Polio as a child which left one leg permanently smaller than the other. Then a serious traffic accident in her teens which required numerous surgeries and caused life long health issues. Finally, she had a miscarriage of the baby made with husband famous painter Diego Rivera and found out that she couldn't bare children. 

All these hardships bled into her paintings which showed the trials and tribulations of the female experience without compromise. Below are a few of her paintings that captivate the eyes and the imagination.

Animal Technology


As the 21st century grows more technologically advanced, science and medicine have found that some of the most complex problems have simple answers. Housing and energy are becoming big issues in most developing countries. Modern architects have turned to mother nature for their inspiration.

They have found that designing a building with a structure similar to a termite hill allows better ventilation and needs less electricity to power. Others found that the inner structure of a bee hive provided structural strength, conserves energy and requires less heat. These innovations are barely scratching the surface of what can be found from observing the animal kingdom.

Aside from architecture and engineering using animal designs for robotics has become incredibly popular. The robotic snake is considered one of the best technological achievements of the decade. It moves like a real reptile, is amphibious and can be remotely operated.

Most zoologist agree that if they had a robotic proxy animal in an environment the behavior of the animal being studied would be different. For example in marine biology when studying whales their behavior changes when humans are introduced into their environment. If they put a robotic fish with a camera in place of a person the whales behavior would be more natural and science could learn more about all aspects of their life.

The designers proposed that the robotic snake could be used for search and rescue as well as numerous stealth and surveillance operations. The military applications for this type of technology are enormous. Below I've placed videos of some amazing robotic animals that simulate the motion of their real-life counter-parts.

The Darkside of Seedless Fruit





 First off…all fruit contain seeds naturally. The purpose of the fruit is it to hold seeds and hopefully be consumed, digested and excreted to a new location. This germination symbiotic relationship happens in all areas of nature. Most commonly with bees and flowers. Seedless fruit is genetically modified fruit and has no place in nature.

The modifications are secret and patented by big named corporations. At first people assumed the fruit was created for convenience. Who wants to be seen spitting out the seeds of an orange or watermelon in public right? That tiny vanity made a niche market for companies to make a mutant fruit that has no seeds. It also took away the ability of the consumer to grow their own fruit. Say you brought a delicious bag of apples and decided you would grow some for yourself. With seedless fruit its not possible.

Seedless fruit takes away the ability to be self-sustaining. It makes you the consumer more dependent on the grocery stores for survival. When I was a kid almost all my aunts and neighbors had gardens where they would grow fruits and herbs. Everyone knew how to grow their own food and went to the grocery store only for necessities. Now most people use the grocery store for their only means of sustenance.


I’m not saying to stop eating seedless fruit, although if you eat natural its definitely more healthy. The only way to get naturally grown fruits these days is from local markets. If you buy it from a grocery store, it costs almost triple the price of the gen-mod foods… so it can be expensive. 

What I am saying, is for a fruit to be seedless it has to be genetically engineered. Its sterile, infertile and the lasting effects from its consumption are still being debated by scientists. So if you are what you eat, and you’re eating sterile and infertile food…what will happen to you?

Flava In Ya Ear


The title is a tribute to the Craig Mack song "Flava in Ya Ear" cuz it was banging...just like the tunes in this post. Thanks to Allhiphop.com I finally know why Craig Mack and Biggie had beef back in the day. They were both on BadBoy records but Craig was already a platinum selling artist while Biggie was working on Ready to Die.

Craig became a born again Christian and didn't support all the gunplay and drug dealing that people were glorifying in their rhymes. This didn't sit well with Biggie since his album was about to drop and that covers the majority of his subject matter. It's been a mystery in Hip-Hop to why they were beefing for a long time..now you know. If you want more details click the link and go read the article at AHH.com.

Below are videos by west coast mobsta Crooked I, a newly slimmed down Fat Joe (the beat is FIYA!). Also there's music by newcomers 2Gzz featuring Juvenile, Killa Kyleon and Philly Swain. Check 'em out.

Cell (phones) Can Cause Cancer


The title may seem like something you would see on a conspiracy website...but its true. Recently the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) concluded a study showing the radiation from cell phone use can cause brain cancer. The study was conducted by numerous different scientists and doctors from across the globe. They classify cell-phones in the same category as lead, chloroform, and carbon monoxide. The phones act like miniature microwave ovens causing the cells to rapidly duplicate leading to tumors.

There's a video on youtube showing how strong the radiation from a cell phone is. They put three cell phones in a triangle around a kernel of popcorn and make them ring. I few seconds later the kernel pops. Think about it.. if the phone is strong enough to pop popcorn... imagine what its doing to your brain.

This doesn't mean you need to throw away your cell phone and it doesn't mean that you're going to get cancer from having it against your ears every once in awhile. What it does mean is that you need to use a phone mic/headset when talking on the phone. What the study shows is that having the cell phone against your ear allows the radiation to damage the brain causing the tumors. So if you keep the phone a foot (30 centimeters) away from your head at all times it won't have the damaging effect.

In a different study some scientist found that the same cell phone radiation effects a persons bone density. Meaning if you keep the phone in your pants pocket all the time it will soon weaken your bones. Its better to keep it in a coat bag, backpack, or somewhere away from the body...until cell phone makers lower the radiation levels. Check the videos below for more information.

New Muzik


I heard a few new tunes today worthy of being classified New Muzik. The first is by artist Cuban Link who used to be part of the Terror Squad with Big Pun and Triple Seis. He was off the scene for awhile due to some label issues. There were also industry rumors that Fat Joe blackballed him in the game. Regardless he's back with some hot tracks for the summer.

Tech N9ne is back with more strange music. His rapid, machine gun fire flow leaves allot of people baffled and others copying his style. He gets comparisons to Twista but I think his flow is quite unique. He came in the game as part of the Regime with Yukmouth. Since then, he's released numerous albums and started his own label Strange Music. His new song 'He's a Mental Giant' will probably help stop the Twista comparisons and give him the credit for being a sick lyricist he rightfully deserves.

There's also tunes by newcomer Oun-P with his 'What chu Talkin Bout' remix featuring Lloyd Banks and Jadakiss. The beat to the track is Fiya! Last there's music from female spitter Patwa, Lloyd Banks and Ace Hood.

Romance Art


Spring is in the air! Its getting warmer outside and the women are wearing less. I don't know if its the birds, the bees, or flowers and trees...but people are sexing! I was biking through the woods yesterday cuz there's a large forest with bike trails behind my house. While riding I caught two different couples sexing in the woods. (Seriously!)

The first couple looked like teenagers and they had their bikes thrown in the bushes so no one would steal them. The second couple were older, much older. I'm talking 40's or early 50's and they were going at it. They were in a clearing that looks like a former camp site that hasn't been used in a long time. There were lots of trees and bushes surrounding the area, you have to go off road from the bike path to get there. Normally I stop in the area to catch my breath and enjoy nature. This time while riding through, I saw this man on his knees, behind a woman on all fours with streaks of white hair in her hair...f**King like drunk bunnies. As I rode by, the woman put her head down so I couldn't see her face and the man just smiled and gave me a slight nod.

The free spirited nature of the old couple reminded me of a girl who got turned on by art. Not just  any art... by a particular artist named Kevin A. Williams. His initials in reverse spell WAK. His art is described by some as black art by others as modern art but by most women as Romance Art. He depicts scenes of love and romance in a masculine way that invokes a certain feeling in the opposite sex. His paintings have been featured on television shows Law & Order, Soul Food and Oprah

He's a best-selling author and on a mission to change peoples perspective on art. If you want to know more about him click the link. I used one of his paintings for the "Sexist Science" post. Below are a few more of his more famous pieces.
