FLIP murray for MVP

shoutout to ville

Wait What

The name of the mash-up artist is Wait What. I emailed him wondering if we could promote him on our site and he (Charlie/Wait What) was kind enough to email me back with lots of support. Here's the email he sent:


Thanks for getting in touch -- that'd be awesome for you to blog about my project! I've got some info on this page:

and would recommend including either a direct download link (http://www.mediafire.com/?nyjlhz4xytm) or a link to that landing page above. also, the press release below:

'Debut album from wait what marries vocals from The Notorious B.I.G. and instrumentals from The xx to create minimalist indie rock hip hop record, the notorious xx -- available for free download on 3.25'

San Francisco, winter 2010: in an apartment with single-paned windows and poor heating, wait what put the finishing touches on his debut album, 'the notorious xx.' That's where the story ends, but it's not where it started.

It's difficult to say how, when, or where wait what 'formed,' since no one 'met at London's Elliot School' or 'followed Sean Combs as he launched Bad Boy Records' in this story. First, wait what is just one guy, and If you read his resume, it would tell you that he is 24, has been DJing for a couple years now, went to college in New York, is gainfully employed at a San Francisco tech company, and began work on original material sometime after he began DJing. Also, he listens to The xx and Biggie, and decided to put them together to create this album.

This collection of tracks is the first cohesive gathering that he feels comfortable dubbing his 'debut.' He created it after realizing that his plan to buy two iPods just to play The xx in one earbud and Biggie in the other wasn't setting a good precedent of financial responsibility (he's still reeling from the Apple Store's 15% restocking fee).

The marriage, if you can call it that -- and really, you can't, given that it's about 43 minutes long, so he's more aiming for a really solid connection between two people just trying to feel something -- is admittedly unorthodox. Biggie's music can make anyone at the club feel like they're a rapper, and gets a dance floor going at most any party, whereas The xx are mostly consumed in iPod earbuds on public transit, sitting in isolation at home, or driving alone -- in many ways, the combination of the two is the extrovert meets the introvert.

Despite the clear differences between The xx and Biggie, their union -- err, encounter -- works. While their music comes from different eras and genres, both have one undeniable quality in common: when they speak, you can't not listen. As soon as Biggie's verses start, you want to hear more about his Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, just as you want to hear how the story concludes when The xx exchange lines asking each other to please not go when they're not finished. This need to hear what both artists have to say makes them a compelling match -- the introvert and the extrovert from whom you can't take your attention away.

'the notorious xx' is independently released and available free on waitwhatmusic.com on March 25, 2010, the 13th anniversary of Life After Death. wait what hopes that you enjoy listening to it as much as he enjoyed making it, and that if you like it, you tell a friend or two to check it out; he thinks that'd be really cool of you. And by he, I mean I -- it would be really cool of you to tell your friends to check out this album. If you have a blog, even better. Either way, I would like to thank you sincerely for listening to it, along with Biggie and The xx for providing excellent source material.

Let me know if there's more info I can provide -- would be happy to help out however I can!


The Notorious vs The XX

Not sure how I feel about mash-ups in general, but I kinda like this one. BIG versus some indie band named The XX. Listen slash download here.

Nas X Damian Marley

New Nas and Damian Marley CD droppin in May. This is the album cover.


Yours truly got the privilege to drive B.O.B. aka Bobby Ray around to his hotel and whatnot. The dude is super cool and a real person. Got him to sign my favorite sox hat and a broken drumstick from his set. I promised myself that if I got to drive him around, I would suggest a song since I know he likes to remix old songs. Couldn't break a promise to myself, so I mentioned that he remix the following song, both him and his manager loved it and showed great interest in remixing/sampling it. Look out for it in the future, definitely and strong possibility of it comin out.

B.O.B. at Purdue

You know it's a sick show when the opener can get 6000 people movin.

For all of you who watched Run's House on MTV, welcome to the world of Diggy Simmons. At first I figured I would be hating on this kid, but this song is seriously fire. Diggy does a cover of Nas' Made You Look, renamin it Flow Stoopid (Made You Look Freestyle). Shit is crazy, just check it out.

As Jobeezy and our good friend Tron know, Kid Cudi will be coming to THE Purdue University this Friday to play at 8PM. B.O.B. aka Bobby Ray will be coming with him along with Cleveland native and friend Chip Tha Ripper. Should be a sick show and all are welcome to attend with a ticket. Any St. Louis boys wanna come there might be a possibility of JUICE havin another ticket. First come first serve. $30 per.

Post Script: That's the shirt the Purdue Concert Committee designed to wear for the show, gonna be tryin to snag a couple free ones. We went with the blue design. Out.

Asher's New Mixtape

I honestly haven't been the biggest fan of this dude and I can't even remember the last time he came out with something on his own, but I've been feelin what he's been on lately. I really liked when Consequence featured him in Childish Games. I kinda dig his new mixtape, You can check out and download his new mixtape Seared Foie Gras w/ Quince & Cranberry here. There are some solid features on it from artists such as RZA, Pac Div, and Talib Kweli.


Alright I know I hate on Wayne quite a bit, but I figured it was about time to show him some love. I know this song is old and off Tha Carter I, but this song is without a doubt one of his top songs and possibly one of the best songs of the 2000s.

Kidz in the Hall - "Take Over the World"

I've been feeling Kidz in the Hall for a while and the single for their new album, 'Take Over the World,' is absolutely on fire. Look out for these guys. At some point they will get some serious national attention.

Solo Heroes of the Gym

Ran across this yesterday, this guy is the lead singer/MC for the rock/hip-hop group Gym Class Heroes. Travis McCoy decides to hook up with Bruno Mars for this song "Billionaire". Personally, love the song, especially Bruno Mars. This guy sounds like the future of hooks to me.

Cypress Hill Feat. Pitbull and Marc Anthony - Armada Latina

Cypress Hill, the west coast Latino rap group who achieved tons of success and critical acclaim in the 90's, only to more or less disappear in the last decade, is back with a new single off their forthcoming album "Rise Up," called "Armada Latina." It features Pitbull and Marc Anthony and has been blowing up the airwaves in Southern California. I'm really feeling the sample--this one is worth checking out. I have a feeling you will either love it or hate it, but you might as well give it a listen as it is a great example of Latino rap.

check out this video preview of "life" a new planet earth like series that looks every bit as epic as planet earth. as the makers of avatar said tonite, the avatar world we created was amazing but the one we live in is pretty amazing too.

more cudi

kid cudi ft snoop dogg- "I do my thing"
i like the simple electronic production. Since cudi got his message across in his first album, which was to inspire through his individual story, he wants to "have fun" with his next album, "cudder", but this wont be on there. Anyway, its gona have many features, and cudi is a certified hip hop emcee so expectations are already high.
