For sale is a 159w Ride Kink. Perfect rail slayer. I have grinded down the edges for street but never had the chance to ride it due to back surgery. Still catches an edge the grinding is so you don't hang up on rails, ledges, etc. My loss your gain. Used 1 season before edges were grinded. Still has wax on it so you know I haven't beaten on this board. $200 o.b.o. im very flexible to trades or what not.

2pac forever

You don't see too many 2Pac remixes so here's one I found.

New Kanye Single!!



This is the mastered version of Kanye's new single "Power" and shits tight. No auto-tune which I think ruined his last album. Hopefully his new album "Good Ass Job" is a banger like this track! This will be the Stronger of 2010.

New Dr. Dre track ft. Jay-Z


It's just ok. The beat gets tiresome after hearing it for a minute. Not as hype as I thought it would be. Anyways check it out and let me know what ya think.

Cant wait for the new Big Boi

This album is going to be tight! I have always loved and followed Outkast but by the time their double album dropped I knew it would never bee the same for Outkast. I had liked Big Boi's style more than Andre 2000's, dude just got weird. Big Boi transformed into his more mature self, Sir Lucious Left Foot, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2007 and began recording his first stand alone solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty. Here's the 1st & 2nd singles from the album that drops July 6th.

Throwback Thursdays!


This week is Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought by Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek. This was right around the time i was finding out what REAL hip hop was. Kweli -- who's name literally means "seeker of truth" -- also owns a small bookstore in Brooklyn and is more than just an average MC, being also a key to the Mos Def collaborational LP Black Star.

Kweli really comes out on this album with his lyrical skills and Hi-Tek's beats are spot on. All tracks are dope no filler just a really good flowing album. Lot's of soul went into this album thats for sure. If you like music you should own this cd. 6/5



This album dropped on May 18th 2010 and was long awaited. This album is pretty much Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought part 2. It's just as good. It is not legendary yet so i give it a 5/5 and when it does i will give it a 6.

New Drake Album April 15th


New Drake album drops April 15th and it's a banger! It pumps in the whip and its flows really well. This album almost has the anticipation of Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III. There's a lot of singing so for you hip hop heads there's the every other banger. I am changing my rating to a 4/5.

jason 2.0

jason 2.0 is a thing i started after my surgery. the main goal is get back into shape. this raises morale to succeed at physiotherapy and get back to work. also so i can shred this winter! i'm 3 weeks in and can notice a difference already, and if you're my beautiful girlfriend you can notice even more. my posture is better than ever, i had never gone to a gym before and am realising i should have been doing this years ago. as a kid i was always active, but got lazy. this is where jason 2.0 comes into play...

Well I didn't win that trip to COC...

But there's always next year...

Last Weeks Throwback...


Last week I wanted to review Wu-Tang's Forever double cd album. When I first heard this album I got hooked on rap for life. 9 MC's plus Wu-affiliates. Shit was dirty. After listening to this album I had to cop 36 Chambers. Another monumental rap album. Overall Forever gets a 6/5.


Sorry to everyone

I've been kinda lagging the last week, with appointments to see my surgeon and what not, I am now clear to start physiotherapy!

Remember when you were 14 and you just coped that new 2Pac cd?

or that new Wu-Tang, or even the new Hot Boy$. Man have times changed for 14 year olds getting into rap. They are being exposed to this shit. At least it's not Puff Daddy. Things could be worse...
