Here are a few of the pics from the DC show i played a couple weeks back taken by Oneviision. The show was good but next time I’m in DC I’ll definitely make sure Wale isn’t playing down the street at the same time. Tends to hurt turnout but all in all a good night. Shout out to my college homie John Burns for coming through in the clutch.

I would probably have roaches if there was actually food to eat in my house. I think my house is where roaches go only if they wanna lose weight.
When you think about people stuntin and flossin, the images of rappers making it rain, and episodes of MTV cribs come to mind. But I would like to reintroduce you to a man who was putting all those dudes to shame in the 80s, Ted Dibiase “The Million Dollar Man”.
On June 25th, 2009 I have been asked to participate in the Content Under Pressure event going down in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Red Bull Music Academy has been putting together some cool events where they bring together producers from all over the globe to exchange ideas and celebrate hip-hop production.
As many of you know last Wednesday was the final night of our weekly event So What Wednesday. Here are some pictures taken by Columbus resident and excellent photographer Ed Luna. He posted these on his facebook page and since they’re really good I figured I would repost them here. Enjoy!
For all my people in columbus that fuck with classic hip-hop, and don’t have plans this saturday night, please come check out the new monthly event that I’m starting up:

I was at the bar Saturday and told a friend i was gonna take a week off drinking and his response was “that’s it? a week ain’t shit, anybody can do that“. I replied with “cool, then you should do it with me“. He thought about it for a second then went silent. Then he asked me to do a shot with him.
I have no words for life right now. Other than this song, which will serve as the soundtrack to what I’m feeling right now to this highest degree:
Its wild how sometimes you can speak things into existence.

The lead singer in the Columbus band called Psychedelic Horseshit is interviewed in the washington post, and there are so many funny (and completely correct) quotes in this intervew I have to post it here. While their music isn’t for everybody, this interview is, and you don’t even have to know anything about them to appreciate it. I wish more hip-hop people would do interviews like this. Shit, maybe I might when my next album comes out.
Shit makes me wanna sit down and write some shit.

Slaughterhouse “Move On” [Remix] feat. Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9″ & Crooked I:
If you live in Columbus then you probably know that I’ve been a part of a weekly hip-hop night called So What Wednesdays for about 2 and a half years. It goes down every week at Cafe Bourbon Street. The night was created and named in remembrance of our dude Daymon Dodson (aka So What) and we have held it down for a while hopefully in the spirit of what he was about.
Just wanted to clear this up before anybody out there got the wrong idea.
i was in limbo, and was like nah brah, i’mma chill at the crib. what i look like the guy who’s last record is 4 years old and whose new record doesnt have a release date, hoppin on stage feeling optimistic about shit like he unsigned hype from when the source meant something, feel me?
but i do have fond memories of it. first time i ever went was the 2nd or 3rd soul position show ever. we opened up for mr. len.
Last fall when i was on tour with atmosphere i did an interview with the Western Carolinian Magazine about everything from the future of hip-hop, to digital production, to the fate of vinyl. It’s pretty in-depth but a pretty good read. I actually forgot we talked about so many different things.
Either way the interview is HERE
