A$AP and the gang recently released the official music video for ‘Fuckin Problem’ ft Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar, and I just watched it. Of course I watched it. I had to watch it. Look at that lineup. But like pretty much else everything in life, I was skeptical.
But bro…its a$ap…
Yeah I know. The guy has a pretty impressive resume. If you wanna talk a$ap, then I’ll happily discuss how great LiveLoveA$AP was/still is. But if you tell me that the guy is gonna be all over the radio with Drake? and 2 Chainz? before he even released an album?
I’d say maybe it’s time to pump the brakes. Think about where we are in our careers. How far we’ve come…how far we must go. Then I’d hide in my room, smoke weed all day, and write my debut album…and it would be glorious. Because I don’t doubt his talent.
But here we go. Let’s watch this thing together shall we?

Today is flooded with questions from co-workers about what you did on one of the biggest drinking days of the whole year. Most people are embarrassed because they spent Sunday figuring out what happened on Saturday.
Just so we’re clear: I never had a set game plan for Saturday I didn’t get arrested
I didn’t pass out in the middle of the day
I didn’t know most of the people who passed through my apartment Read More
NCAA March Madness starts tomorrow. Time is running out to get into our Suicide Pool so send your picks to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Don’t be a chad, read the rules first.
St. Patricks Dayis on a Saturday this year……..fucking….dangerous. I can literally see 6 Irish bars from my apartment window. If you want to join in on a drinking day to write home about…contact me on Friday. Because Saturday is pretty much a wash…as is Sunday. Hangover Sombrero status all weekend. Those of us who are actually Irish understand that some lame ass get together in Hoboken is a joke. St. Pattys Day falling on a Saturday is like Christmas, and your birthday. Basically you feel like Jesus I guess. Could be the best feeling ever – I may not spend another dime until Saturday and break the bank until I pass out.
Over / under on what time I pass out? My guess is I’m passed out around 3 or 4…probably still standing and raging in public…but sleeping. I have a history of doing that. Kinda hope I black out again.
Steak and Blow job day is today. Fuck Valentines day… If you are not familiar with that today is…and you can read then I feel bad for you because you must not know what a blow job is….or steak. Get your man some steak.
Thanks to Josh for the pic.
Since I’m a sad son of a bitch I’ll probably end up on my couch with some salad watching COPS reruns.
I’m so fucking stoked this show is coming back on the air. this shit was a staple in my childhood and during college summers where we would drink and watch the killer lineup on NICK GAS (games and sports) where it went LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE, then GLOBAL GUTS, then FIGURE IT OUT, then back to mofuckin’ GLOBAL GUTS.
shit was fire.
Anyway besides the Kordell stewart cllip on our newsfeed,
There was this fuckin’ kid with a bull cut who claimed to be the rodeo sheep riding champion and spent the whole episode laughing at Mike O’Malley for not guessing his “talent” So he gets on his stupid ass sheep at the end of the episode and BAM, kid gets owned:
Each year in Austin, TX there is a major art festival called South By Southwest (SXSW) and a few buddies (who happen to be twin brothers) from high school got a film accepted in this year calledFuneral Kings. Your first thought is probably – “oh you’re just supporting this because you went to school with the kids.” Even if I didn’t and this came across my desk I would have to get the word out. I just happened to have the inside scoop and we’re bringing you this first. Watch the trailer and judge for yourself…this movie is going to be straight fire.
I remember watching the short films these guys made in high school for some low key competitions – while those were good; adding Leo DiCaprio’s coke head cousin from the Departed is a pretty big step up from that for their first feature film. I don’t see it disappointing. Oh and if you are wondering about other famous brother directing duos?
Farrelly Brothers – Dumb and Dumber, Something About Mary, Kingpin… (Also from Rhode Island)
Coen Brothers – Fargo, Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men…
Are the McManus Brothers the next? A bit early for that but the whole brothers combination seems to work – I’d keep an eye on them.
If you happen to be in Austin this weekend, go see Funeral Kings Saturday at 7:30 pm – FULL INFO. And if you like the trailer – check out http://wwww.mcmanusbros.com/ for their other stuff. It is showing a few other times throughout the week so if you can get your ass to Austin to see it, do it. I’m going to make it to one. The only thing that could be more fire than the film is the soundtrack – sounds legit.
Side note…could los juggernaut and pharro be the best blogging brother team ever? I think yes.
Being my all-time favorite group, sure you can say I am biased. But I don’t care. If you appreciate good music, then the Roots’ thirteenth studio album ‘undun‘ is for you.
It’s hard to give you an idea how good this CD is as a whole by just dishing out some YouTube videos, but you needed to hear a few songs. They go above and beyond what most artist try to accomplish in 12-15 tracks. It tells a story from the first to last song about a fictional character named Redford Stephens. Illustrating the decision of making money and following a life of crime rather than turning his life into something constructive, and ending with his ultimate downfall. They didn’t just try to stick a bunch beats and annoying rappers on tracks to sell records, they created this for a reason.
By all means, please listen to these few songs on their own, but know this CD comes together as a collective thought. Something VERY hard to do these days with everyone rapping about hoes and Cristal and shit. Pick it up, pop it in, listen from first to last song. They make music for thought and turn thoughts into music. In their third decade of delivering nothing but fire, this could be one of their best records.
I was trying to get that cool sound cloud shit that putitupto11 does, but I kept getting the Roots MySpace page. Had no idea that shit even existed anymore. Deal with the Tube.
The first verse in this song is so fire I can’t even stand it.
Yo, we obviously need to tone it down a bit Running round town spending time like it’s counterfeit Everybody catching hay fever like sinuses Step in my arena let me show y’all who the highness is You might say I could be doing something positive Humble head down low and broke like promises Soaking and broken in a joke like comics is Not enough paper to be paying folks compliments But when that paper got low so did my tolerance And it ain’t no truth in a dare without the consequence Listen if it not for these hood inventions I’d just be another kid from the block with no intentions On the dock of that bay serving a life sentence Even if I’m going to hell I’m gonna make an entrance Yeah let em know I’m getting cheese like omeletes is But I’m the toast of the town like Thomas’
