So, I’ve hyped Blu a lot over the past few months. I’m a huge fan and was pumped to get his new album, N O Y O R K. It was on a bigger label, had a bunch of guest appearances and I felt like it was the first proper album he was dropping since Below the Heavens. Oh man, was I disappointed. He went some very weird direction with it. Super messy, electronic, off rhythm beats, weird vocals. It was just a let down. I understand what he was trying to do, I just don’t think he pulled it off. I’ve been giving it a few more run throughs, because anyone I truly love gets at least a few chances to catch my ear, and I was pleasantly surprised that there were a couple of bangers towards the end of the album. This track isn’t just a pleasant surprise, it’s a jam in every sense of the word. Enjoy! I’m getting drunk tonight. What what.
So don’t misunderstand, Spotify is absolutely legendary and 100% superior to surfing youtube vids to hear songs one doesn’t have on itunes for whatever reason, but one thing I am most definitely going to miss is the random image collections that enterprising young people put together to fill the screen while a song plays. We know you only wanted to upload the song, and you could’ve just put up a black screen with the artist’s name for all we cared. But you didn’t. You created a titty montage masterpiece to Donnie Iris’s “Leah,” and for that we will be forever grateful.
As an added bonus, look at how fucking hot Lindsay Lohan is in the opening photograph of the montage. And now think about what she looks like today. I swear to God its as though she drank out of the wrong goblet at the end of Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.
Actually, probably album cover of the year. Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire “Lost In Translation” mixtape. And he could have the artist name of the year too.
So, one of the best record labels out there, Stones Throw, recently had a “make a video for one of their existing songs” contest to celebrate their 15th anniversary. The results were pretty dope. They picked the 15 best & had a couple honorable mentions too. These are my 3 favorites. Click here if you wanna check the rest of them out.

And just when you thought it couldnt get more awesome, David Porter goes all thug with a gaucho hat & the pink silk sleeves on the back cover. I’m pretty sure Mr. Porter took down more chicks in Sept. 1973 wearing that outfit than I have in my entire life. I’m bringing the gaucho hat back.
Cuz you named yourself The Devil Wears Prada and you look like this:
