This Day Sucks Demo (VIDEO)

April 25, 2009

Described as being: “Seinfeld meets Yo!MTV Raps. Intelligent urban entertainment [packaged in an] animated short film birthed in the spirit of Golden Age Hip-hop.” The story needs some work but the detailing is hilariously spot-on. You can tell these cats really know and love their hip hop. [via Asya]

I’m too hungover to add more but stolen without remorse from the kitchen.

Madame Tussauds to Unleash Snoop Dogg Wax Figure

April 15, 2009


Keep it on wax, literally. It was just announced by Madame Tussauds that Snoop Dogg will be the next Hip Hop artist/icon to be displayed as a wax figure. Just like Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G, Snoop will be displayed at one of Madame Tussauds’ musuems, but will be the first living Hip Hop artist to be waxed up. Snoop’s $300,000 wax figure will be decked out in his Rich & Infamous clothing line including a baseball jacket. Personally I would rather see him in this earlier wardrobe (no homo).  Snoop’s wax statue will make it’s debut appearance at the Madame Tussauds studios in London next Monday, April 20th. 4/20??… ha go figure. I wonder if he has a waxed blunt.

Pharrell Williams x Atelier WM Candle

A life size wax candle molded from Pharrell’s own hand are now on sale. Only 200 of these were made and they only can be found at Flagship stores and Colette in Paris. Each of these candles are numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. I don’t know about dropping $110 for some candles, but I am sure some of you will probably cop.

Spotted at BBCIcecream which iswhere you can also purchase them from.

Jim Jones Play “Hip Hop Monologues” Frienemies

March 30, 2009

A lot of my NY peoples have seen Jimmy’s play and all say it’s pretty good. This past weekend he performed his Cam/Max B dis track “Frenemies”

Jim Jones rocked his diss track for Cam and Max B at this play which i caught this weekend. the play was good. I looked at it like a concert more or less, with a bit of dialogue. It had a lot of fat booties, and upskirt views from my seat… lol I love it!

I also remember seeing a tweet by Jim Jones yesterday saying some people were blazing at the play. SMH

Props to homie Blogxilla with the footage.
