This is moreso a placemarker for me. I'd been looking for this cypher for a couple days and thanks to the Ohio-based site OMNImix. I found it. Feel free to enjoy.

One of the most important notes I took in any of my photography lectures, years back, was making a connection with an artist. Finding art and an artist to invest oneself to, becomes more difficult as any medium grows. There is a high chance you could expose yourself to a lot of crap art and crap artists [subjectively speaking]. When I look at this documentary on A Tribe Called Quest, it reminds me about the many movements that occur in art. It reminds me of my youth. It also reminds me of my initial hate of the group.
Day to Day, February 12, 2009 - February isn't just Black History Month. It's also "J Dilla Month" — declared by Stones Throw Records in honor of the Detroit hip-hop producer James "J Dilla" Yancey. He died three years ago this weekend. The L.A.-based label worked closely with Dilla before he passed. Eothen "Egon" Alapatt, Stones Throw's general manager, talks about Dilla's music and legacy.
One of my favorite artists. Musically and otherwise. He is sorely missed.
Dirty Reik a guy I have never heard of and I'm sure most of you guys haven't either, is a part of a rap group called Major Figgas. Above is a diss video/freestyle to Gillie the Kid [ex-Major Figgas member] who was probably the most talented of the bunch.
However, instead of responding in kind, with another freestyle. Gillie goes that extra mile, by pulling up Dirty Reik's rap sheet only to find that Dirty Rick has had multiple cases of being arrested for sexual misconduct to minors.
This is beyond hilarious. Gillie has definitly gained extra points in my book for playing the role of Chris Hansen.
After the jump...Gillie and Dirty Reik's Baby Mama further expose Dirty Reik as a father...
I know you want to look away, but you can't. Props to Amy Poelher who's like 13 months preggers delivering both rhymes and bucks. I have no idea what this weekend has done for Palin and the rest of the GOP's campaign, but I'm guessing it couldn't have hurt all that much. [shrugs]
Quoted From Kotaku:
Noted game critic, aspiring developer and rapper Soulja Boy says there are four Xbox 360 titles on which he cannot be beat — any circumstances. Halo 3; Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare; Gears of War and Grand Theft Auto IV. (He's also a pure bastard at Viva Pinata, I assure you.) And at the end of this 7 minute video, which I dare you to tolerate, you can get his gamertag so you can sign up for your free assbeating. PlayStation 3 gamers, you are just shit out of luck, what can I say.
Update: Hawty McBloggy looked up his Gamertag and his "intimidating k/d ratio of 0.91."
Thank you Owen Good of Kotaku, although I find these recent developments...no...discoveries of all talents relating to Soulja Boy intriguing. I can't help but think if this youngster had a chance to make his own game...[which I've just knocked on wood about] what would it look like?
