So, I can admit that my musical taste is all over the map. Just as an example, I’m listening to My Morning Jacket right now, but the day started out with The Dreams new album. I usually don’t listing to that much main stream hip-hop, especially not R&B, but I’ll have to blame my recent relapse to the mainstream stuff to designer and DJ, Fourcolor Zack. He posted this really good mix of tracks from The Dream on his myspace. I’ve had the mix for months now and I seriously can not stop listing to it. I have this moment before I click on the track in iTunes, where I know I shouldn’t do it, but I’m just so addicted, I have to… It’s really bad… haha.
So anyway, there was this video that just showed up on The Fader for a remix of The Dreams “Rockin’ That Shit” with Rick Ross, Ludacris, Fabolous, and Santana all backed up by this whole magazine layout theme. I’m pretty stoked on the video concept and I’m also stoked that I have finally admitted my horrible addiction to The Dream.
Check out the video after the jump and if you’d like to get sucked in, download Fourcolor Zack’s mix here.
Smoovebert just sent this over and while we are on the topic of posting cleaver internet shit, I thought everyone would enjoy this. It’s a mash-up of youtube clips mixed together to create a whole album. I thought it was just one track, but no… an album. I tried to just listen to it in the background, but the clips are almost as good as the music. I’m really digging the site as well…
Kevin Porter recently opened up a coffee shop in Chicago with his wife Chelsea, named De•li•cious Café.
I was stoked and intrigued when I heard about this venture, as it is a departure from the predictable bike shop that you would expect a pro rider to open. Hence, I asked KP some questions about it.

Through a few message boards and some random clicking I just came across this rad video on, a site called Quality Control, that compiles sounds from the world to create music. I really love the concept and the video is quite fun.
This is too dope not to post. Imagine watching this when your computer is going slow, making those pixel ghost on top of the intentional ghosts…
There is a pretty good post on The Font Feed about the Grammy that was awarded to best packaging and music video. They give their two sense about the Metalica album that won for best packaging and put up a few of their favorite album covers from the past year. They also have some good videos for video of the year.
Check out the Cookie Monster remix of Jay-Z’s 99 Problems.
Oh man, the Cookie Monster on the Spree at .48 seconds….
Via- The Rap Up
Ride BMX just dropped their 2009 Photo Issue, which has a colorful photo of Rich Hirsch on the cover.
If the cover caught your eye, but you didn’t know why, than you are in luck. I hit up Keith Mulligan with a few questions to find out exactly what is going on with the cover.
Click below to check that out.

Many of you have probably heard that Joaquin Phoenix has officially retired from acting and has taken up rapping. And why not? The live recording doesn’t sound so hot, but if you’ve ever watched live hip-hop then you know that live hip-hop is usually terrible, even when performed by the greats. From what I can tell, Joaquin’s beat sounds nice and the flow sounds interesting, so who’s to say that it won’t sound more polished when Diddy gets done with it?
Here is the story and video of the Joaquin Phoenix hip hop performance.
I was checking out the new Young Jeezy/Terry Richardson campaign for Belvedere Vodka, and it let me to an interesting video commentary with Terry. He comments on the irony of taste and wealth no longer being synonymous with each other.
Belvedere has been driving that point home with commercials like this one featuring Vincent Gallo and RZA, and personally I think it’s rad to see a talented artist chill out in a flannel shirt and mustache and point out that no matter how rich you are, you just can’t buy style.
Watch the short commentary here.
The Fader just posted an interesting, yet not to long, conversation between The Faders deputy editor How To An Ex Boyfriend To Want You Back When You Live Together Eric Ducker and Eskay of Nah Right, discussing the lack of good hip-hop albums. I feel like there’s always talk of “the current state of hip-hop”, but I found this interesting because it seems like there is just a bunch of people, labels and rappers, that don’t really know what to do because of what’s happening in the music industry… I don’t really have my hopes up for any good hip-hop albums to drop anytime soon and it’s interesting how my music taste is way more electronic and rock than it is hip-hop lately…
