Steven Seagal’s guitar playing could make a wolverine purr….

….His compassion could make Mother Theresa cry…..

…but his justice would make even the most hardened criminal shit his pants…..

Only one man is capable of inducing so many different reactions….that man….is Steven Seagal….

A long time ago, I was a co host with this Rosenberg guy (more will be explained later, it’s not that interesting of a story). But with the legendary Pete Rock releasing a new album I had to post this link to his interview.

Album is dope too. Long live PR!


Making Easy Money Pimping Hoes In Style…Memphis Bleek. What in god’s name? This entry really doesn’t even require much more information. Bleek first appeared on Jay Z’s premier album Reasonable Doubt, on the acclaimed track Coming of Age. Bleek set fire to the track, providing the perfect immature foil to Hov’s more mature, dollar induced style of hustling. Recognizing the potential in the younginHov stepped down from his narcotics founded pedestal to school the young up and comer. Berating him to focus on business and not bling, Bleek seemed to be taking a lesson not only on how to survive and thrive on the streets, but also as an artist.

Somewhere between then and now that message was lost.

Bleek’s career has been an pointless mish-mash of forgettable commercial tracks interspersed with filler songs. In fact, on each of Bleek’s four solo projects, the stand out verses came from guest artists. From Hov’s verse on The Coming to the solo Jay Z track Dear Summer on 534, Bleek has been kept in the house more than Nas as a youth.

For some reason I picture Bleek sitting in one of Hov’s various cribs, constantly rolling up like the weakest link in Beanie’s crew in State Property I. If Jay Z had a bad day, I’m sure he struck out at Bleek on more than one occasion.

But nonetheless, Memphis Bleek has managed to avoid the fate of artists like Amil and Sauce Money, maybe due to his willingness to remain at 5’4″ his entire life.

Nas creates AZ


Nasir Jones first album, Illmatic, is critically acclaimed as one of, if not the, best single album ever released or recorded in the brief history of rap music. Hell, in certain circles, this cd is considered among the best musical recordings to take place in the 20th century.For many reasons, this album will be remembered as the point at which rap music became a legit art form. The stylings of KRS-1, the lyrical wizardry of Rakim, and the bantering humor of a Slick Rick were all drawn together to create an album whose impact sparked the mainstream acceptance and growth of America’s definitive sound.

But there is a dark side to this…

On the track, “Life’s a Bitch” one of Nas’ homies from the QB projects, a rapper by the name of AZ was given life. He breezed over and through one of L.E.S.’s most laid back and jazzy tracks with an unforgettable verse and delivery, promising that “as long as we leavin thieven, we’ll be leavin with some kind of doe” among other gems.

To bad for him the ride crashed to a halt almost immediately. AZ was able to follow up his appearance with some modest contributions on The Firm’s : The Album as well as a career’s worth of solo projects from Aziatic, to S.O.S.A. (Save Our Streets AZ) , to Pieces of a Man…but alas, it simply was not to be.

While AZ reached a strong level of success for a bastard child, he remains one birthed into the game without direction. He was never able to amount to the success of his “father” Nas, and as a result has faded into obscurity

AZ the VisualizaVisualizin the realism of life and actuality Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salaryAnd my mentality is, money orientatedI'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it causeyeah, we were beginners in the hood as five percentersBut somethin must of got in us cause all of us turned to sinners Now some, restin in peace and some are sittin in San Quentin Others such as myself are tryin to carry on traditionKeepin the schwepervesence street ghetto essence inside us Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide usEven though, we know somehow we all gotta go but as long as we leavin thievin we'll be leavin with some kind of dough so, and to that day we expire and turn to vapors me and my capers-ll be somewhere stackin plenty papersKeepin it real, packin steel, gettin highCause life's a bitch and then you die

Yo don’t sleep, this boy got talent. Look at him wield that guitar.

What a surprise another Rapper was arrested, WHEN WILL THEY LEARN… According to the AP lil wayne was arrested early Wednesday in YUMA, Arizona. The info is below. Also is a picture of Lil Wayne kissing bird man on the LIPS, they said its some black Mafia SHIT! I dont know its sounds more Brokeback Mountain then 3:10 to YUMA!

PHOENIX — Rapper Lil Wayne was arrested on three felony drug charges early Wednesday after federal agents said they found illegal drugs including cocaine on his charter bus at a checkpoint in southwestern Arizona.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was being held at the Yuma County Sheriff’s jail on state drug charges, Capt. Eben Bratcher said.

Carter appeared via video arraignment late Wednesday morning in a justice court in Wellton, 35 miles east of Yuma.
James Tilson, a local attorney retained by Carter and his New York-based lawyer, said his client was not formally charged and his next court date was scheduled for Jan. 25.
“We will find out by Jan. 25 whether or not the (Yuma) county attorney will file charges or not,” Tilson said. “He is looking forward to his day in court. That’s all I can say right now.”
His bond was set at $10,185. Tilson said they were working on his release.
The 28-year-old faces charges of possession of dangerous drugs, narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
Bratcher said Carter was arrested by Drug Enforcement Administration agents at a Border Patrol checkpoint near Dateland, Ariz., 78 miles east of Yuma.
DEA spokeswoman Ramona Sanchez said a Border Patrol canine unit alerted agents to the presence of illegal drugs on the bus. A search yielded nearly four ounces of marijuana, just over an ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstasy and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia. – AP
