Machine Gun Kelly - Get Laced (Video)

I've been seeing this dude pop up a lot lately and I haven't really checked him out until now but damn can the dude spit. Apparently he landed a deal too but thats under wrap for now.

Vintage Cartel release party April 28th

Jim Jones - Perfect Day Feat. Chink Santana and Logic

This is dope. I can't say I'm one of the biggest Jim Jones fans out there but he definitely gets my respect for this. I have a deaf sister as well as family and friends in the military so I'm pretty touched that a rapper would make a song/video like this. Props to Jimmy.

Mistah FAB freestyle for Hard Knock TV

He spazzed out. And for my Northwest fam see anybody familiar in the background?

Smoke DZA - Loaded (Prod. Lex Luger)

Sure some of Luger's beats may sound repetitive but you gotta give it to the kid he's definitely making a name for himself and recently he teamed up with one of my favorites Smoke DZA who is getting ready to drop his upcoming project T.H.C. (The Hustlers Catalog) on April 1st (no jokes please).

Air Jordan II Max - White/Varsity Red/Black

I really wasn't feeling these at first but after seeing more detailed pictures I have to admit I'm kinda liking these. Don't get me wrong I'll still take a pair of actual IIs over these Max IIs any day but I think the fam over at Sneakernews said it best "the Air Jordan Retro can only be stretched so far, and so new ideas of reinvention can only be expected from the brand that has set the bar so high for the last 2.5 decades". What do you think of these new Air Jordan IIs with the visible 360-Max Air unit? Yay or nay? More pictures after the jump.

Oakley “St. Paddy’s Day” Frogskins

R.I.P. Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" D. Hale

The cause of death is unknown at this time but it's a strong possibility that it had something to do with his past health issues. Nate Dogg suffered two strokes from 2007 til now.

One things for certain however, West Coast rap will never be the same again. For those who are familiar with T-Pain and Akon, you should know that before those two came along Nate Dogg was pretty much the hook King. Growing up in the 90's it was pretty rare to NOT hear a song on the radio with a hook from him. Whether it be with Ludacris, Warren G, Snoop, 50 or whoever it may be, if you had a Nate Dogg hook your song was pretty much an instant classic.

Listening to this gives me chills now...

Video Response to Alexandra Wallace

So yesterday afternoon some ditzy UCLA blonde by the name of Alexandra Wallace decided to post a video on YouTube ranting away about how loud and obnoxious asians are in the library, how asians have no manners, and even goes as far as to crack a joke on the recent events in Japan. Well after a barrage of well-deserved hate comments and negative responses the aspiring model (porn star) took the video down (as well as her Twitter, Facebok, and Examiner profile) but not before the internet geeks out there could copy it, and since then the original video has been re-uploaded along with a bunch of corny remixes. Here is one video response that I found to be quite funny.

My 2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket

(Click to enlarge)
Yes I picked Washington to win it all, and yes it was a biased pick to say the very least. Everything was chosen based on match-ups I would like to see. I know some of the picks may sound crazy but hey this is March Madness right?

Tacoma's own Isaiah Thomas wins Pac 10 Championship for Huskies (Video)

I feel sorry for whoever missed this game... With about a minute left in the Pac 10 Championship game things were looking pretty grim for UW, but a trio of 3-pointers and some tough defense allowed the Huskies to tie it up and send the game to OT. In overtime the Huskies looked to be riding the momentum from the end of regulation by getting the early lead on Arizona but the Wildcats fought back and with under 20 seconds remaining in the game UW coach Lorenzo Romar decided to put the game in his star PG's hands even with 1 timeout still remaining. And this is where the always-entertaining commentary from everybody's favorite Gus Johnson takes over, just watch the video.


Kemba Walker...

The title speaks for itself... easily one of the nastiest moves I've ever seen.

Kemba GW on Pitt > MJ GW on Russell

Chris Brown - Look At Me Now Ft. Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne (Official Video)

Busta Rhymes verse is the only reason this song gets play. Pretty dope video tho.

Earthquake/Tsunami devastate Japan

Yesterday afternoon Japan was struck by one of the most powerful earthquakes in the past 100 years, an 8.9 magnitude quake to be exact. I was watching everything unfold on the news last night and all I could do is watch in awe, the tsunami waves were just washing away pretty much everything in sight whether it be homes, cars, planes, etc..
