shot of the day- set music

i'm in atlanta b****

even though i pretty much consider myself a cosmopolitan, i reside (and have resided all of my life) in atlanta. yea, yea, yea, i'm sure plenty of people have shit to say about atlanta because of its crazy music scene thats pretty much destroying everyone elses meaningful shit, but i have to say that when i heard the "stanky leg" abroad, i knew for sure that atlanta was pretty much engraved on the map...

with that said, one of my favorite songs to party to here in the a is "i'm in atlanta bitch." (a remake of lmfao's "i'm in miami bitch"). I love this song because it stays true to atlanta, and every time i hear it, i grow butterflies in my stomach knowing that i've pretty experience everything in this song, from the sketchy clermont lounge, to the boujee buckhead scene. i heart atlanta. theres no other place like it...

lets make a toast- here's to you atlanta!

shot of the day- guitar hero

random fact about me: i am a guitar hero. yes. thats right. you read correctly. i am fucking awesome. 

if you're a hero of guitars, as i, you know that its not hard to know every single effin song that is on guitar hero after trying to master the riffs in order to beat the game. i have spent many a exam and term paper time dedicated to beating expert on guitar hero, so whenever i'm in a bar and i hear "message in a bottle" or "fly bird" i fucking go crazy! 

sadly, its gotten to the point where i've actually downloaded the songs that i liked the most of guitar hero just so i can sing along to the guitar riffs. one of my favs in particular is the stone temple pilots "trippin on a hole in a paper heart."  i've grown to love this song mainly because it took me effin forever to beat it on expert mode- but when i did beat it, i cried victory! 

anyway- take a listen. i really would like to hear someone do a remake or sample the beat or melody. its soooo catchy. (btw- i swear i'm not a dork, i just really like guitar hero!)

neat- curren$y

pilot talk II- album review

i recently coped curren$y's new album and i've been bumping it in my car for the past week. there are definitely some songs that stand out and some that get lost in the background. heres my brief review of the album:

after the pilot talk I, my expectations for II were exceedingly high, because the first one was so hot. just about every single song was hot- from the production to the lyrics. mad props to ski beatz for those hot ass beats btw. 

seems like pilot talk II is on some other shit though. the beats aren't luxurious as expected and the tracks seem more gutta. my favorite, by far, is "famous" mainly because its the most reminiscent of his last album, and i'm also feeling "michael knight."   the other tracks kinda all blend in with each other. maybe if i give this album a few more weeks of listening, this album will start to grow on me more?  anyway, I'm giving this album a b-. it was cool curren$y, but you leave me wanting more....

with that said, below is my fav song on the album...you be the judge...

freshly squozen-new music

good music is finna come out yall. yessssss! 

so here's what i'm really anticipating in the next few weeks:

curren$y- pilot talk II: i'm soooooo excited for this one. his flow is ehhhhh but his beats are fucking a-maz-ing!
b.o.b- no genre mixtape: i'm more excited that its gonna be free than anything, but i'm feeling b.o.b. his style is eclectic and raps to the beat of his own drum...
ne-yo- libra scale: despite his not-so-hot shit that he's come out with, i'm still gonna cop this one. ne-yo is a talented song writer, so even if his album doesn't turn out to be that hot, atleast i'll have some words of wisdom :)
kanye west- my beautiful dark twisted fantasy: i can't wait to see how this album is received. kanye is ridiculous, but he's alright in my book. most of his shit on this album is on the many mixtapes that are circulating now, but i'm sure he'll still make a fortune.
black eye peas- the beginning: i'm excited because i need more music to drink to.
young jeezy- thug motivation 103: omg. words can not explain how much i'm anticipating for this album to come out. its been so long jeezy! i luh you! 

is there anyone that i'm missing? let me know...

shot of the day- animal collective

when i first heard these guys i wasn't really impressed, but they sure as hell grew on me...and i'm really only talking about one song by the animal collective- my girls. mainly because when i listen to this song, i usually fast forward to about a minute into the song (thats when the beat really drops) and i seat dance (thats when u groove while sitting down) for the rest of the song. also the lyrics are pretty interesting- they are:

i don't mean/ to seem like a care about material things
like my social status
i just want/ 4 walls and adobe flats
for my girls

with lyrics like these it makes you think- are you tryna be humble? or are u really fooling us with this humbleness because ur a pimp and need "adobe flats" to house your "girls".....

whichever it is, the song is still pretty good. just keep in mind that the intro is drawn out so the real hot shit doesn't start until a minute n half way into the song...

animal collective- my girls

flight- j. cole

apologies for being m.i.a for a minute- work has been really busy for me, however, i am updating my blog on the job right now. oh the irony. 

anyways, i recently downloaded j. coles new mixtape "friday night lights" and let me say that i was really impressed. i've never really been much of fan of his, i mean, i thought "all i want is you" was cool n all, but i kinda shelved him with those other rappers like tyga, and yung berg (yes, forgive me). after a little convincing to listen to the mixtape by my followers on twitter, i instantly realized how hot this guy is. you should def check him out.

j. cole- friday night lights

you can download the mixtape on datpiff.com

shot of the day- quadron

quadron- buster keaton

shooters- breakfast music

soooo i'm no big chiefer but i do enjoy music that you can burn one too...the beats tend to be more exaggerated and the lyrics are pretty much awesome. back in the day i created a mix cd of over 20 smoke songs that was entitled "geek music," lol, but for the sake of sounding like i burn it down every mutha fuckin day (which i don't), i'm just gonna break yall off with my list of the top 10 greatest "burn one to" songs ever created in the history of  "burning one to."

10. "Mary Jane" by Major Lazer

because we all sometime need instructions sometimes on how to roll one....

9. "That Tree"by Snoop ft Kid Cudi

because they were obviously blowed during the entire video...

8. "Cut Ya Up" by Devin the Dude

because for a lonnnng time i thought he was a pedophile...

7.  "Up" by Wiz Khalifa

because you start to believe that "everything is better when ya highhh" after Wiz repeats it 20 times...

6. "Smokin' Out" by Project Pat

because i love icey white honey buns too....

5. "Easy Skanking" by Bob Marley

because Bob Marley makes this shit sound legit....

4. "Weedman" by Lil Jon n the Eastside Boys

because everyone loves a clever countdown in a song...

3. "Breakfast" by Curren$y

because the background music on this track makes your chiefing experience sound hella classy...

2. "Doobie Ashtray" by Devin the Dude

because this one's a classic and devin deserves to be on here twice...

1. "Weed Song" by Bone Thugs n Harmony

because when rappers sing about weed like its their love child, its impossible not to make it number one. i honestly know this song word-for-effin-word. listen!

shot of the day- the cool kids

mikey and chuck just tweeted that they had a new song out today- thought i'd share it with you guys. its called "big talk" and i personally think its alright. (yes alright, nothing to kill ya kids over, but nothing to sleep on either)

heres the link btw: "big talk" download

so back to the cool kids. i was absolutely in love with them in college, but then they kinda fell off the map. i coped a couple of their mixtapes after they came out with the bake sale and just wasn't as impressed with them as i was with "a little bit cooler" and "jingling." i think my all time fav by them has to be "bassment party" (chuck did a fuckin fantastic job on the beat) mainly because i went through this house party faze when the song was out. on their most recent mixtapes, i think the dj talk ruins everything, and mikey's raps just aren't as hot. with that said, they are alotta but cooler than most of these young rappers today. i also appreciate that they rap about segas and fruity pebbles. now thats something i can relate to.

anyways- i like where their career is right now. everyone nows about 'em but you're not forced to listen to them on the radio every two seconds. they've inspired a whole new style of swag and they've got this nonchalant-ness towards fame that i appreciate. they seem real in tune with the music and thats some shit i can raise my glass to... you guys are dope as hell....

farewell to the wires of lime

i'm no poet, but i felt compelled to creatively express my thoughts on one of the most important aspects of my life

to my beloved wires of lime; a response to your unfortunate legal troubles

ode to the wires of lime

farewell to my trusty source
you've kept my thirst quenched for many years
but your time has run its course
no more leeching off my peers.

i can't believe they caught you
its like a bad dream
waking up to nothing new
you held it down for the team

green little spinning lime
i feel bad for abandoning you
but if the feds took me in for time
i honestly wouldn't know what to do

so heres to the last hoorah
you gave me what i need
this is some real kaka
but hey, nothing in life is free.....

::sung in a high pitch A minor:: "unless you got BitTorrentttttttt!"

just kiddin folks. do the right thing!

gin and tonic-oldie but goodie

prince- when doves cry

self-explanatory. this song is the shit. mainly because our parents live similar lives and i recently saw an old dave chapelle episode and felt "inspired" to post a song by the blouse-man himself.

shot of the day- dirty diana

been seeing alot of michael jackson on t.v lately (must be about that time),  so i thought i'd break yall off with a song that i particularly like- dirty diana. diana was such a triflin hoe and mike did a great job in calling her dirty ass out.

enjoy Dirty Diana

neat- matt tong (bloc party)

for those who know who the band bloc party is, you probably already know that the drummer in the band matt tong is pretty effin awesome. there's one song in particular where he straight kills it. he kills it to the point where other drummers post his shit on youtube. if you haven't heard the guy (or the band for that matter) you should check em out.

bloc party-luno

shot of the day- paramore

paramore is the shit. i vividly remember listening to "let the flames begin" for the very first time and all of a sudden falling in love with alternative music. kinda like the first time i had an amoretto sour and realizing that alcoholic drinks could really be so tasty. doors were opened, gates of greatness flooded in and the world seemed that much better.

since then i've been an avid paramore fan. my favorite album is "all we know is falling" and one of my favorite songs by them is let the flames begin. i've been to a few of their concerts and when they first came out, they always opened with "let the flames begin." shit was dramatic, hayley would jump all over the place, and i'm pretty sure there were balls of fire barreling in the air  (but that could of easily been my imagination). anyways, if you really, realllyyy wanna fall in love with music all over again, you'd listen to the live version of this song.

let the flames begin- paramore (live)
