Dizzee Rascal – Dance Wiv Me

July 26, 2008

Take a dude who can rap old school, add some great ragga beats and send them to the UK to chill. You end up with Dizzee Rascal. Having worked with Ecko to design sneakers and Beck to remix a song, he has made a niche which as he says “the biggest conflict I have is with major labels because they still don’t get it.”

Don’t expect to find him just on the shelves here in America but don’t deny, you felt like dancing when you heard this.

Props to Radek911 bringing this to my attention.

Million Kazoku

June 27, 2008

After seeing the atrocious shit that was the ABC show I Survived A Japanese Gameshow, in all its fake glory (the host is American and the show does not air in Japan), I figured it was time to remind people what real Japanese game shows are like. I have posted before about a personal favorite called Haneru no Tobira many times. But here is one that not many people know about called Million Kazoku.

The premise of the show is that they have famous people, singers and tv actors, come to your house and you have 30 minutes to hide in your house. If someone can stay hidden the full time, you win 1,000,000 Yen ($10,000 US roughly). The cool thing too is that the families are encouraged to cheat a bit. If you hit the jump, there is another episode where the family’s daughter gets shoved somewhere pretty creative, and no it is not in someone’s ass.

Daft Punk Coffee Table

June 23, 2008

This here is one of the few DIY projects I really want to try except I have no idea how to handle the electronics. Carpentry, piece of cake but the circuits and programming, I don’t know shit. These were apparently something you could buy from a store in the UK called Habitat but are no longer sold.

Daft Punk has always had a soft spot in my heart. From the melodic beats to the insanely cool videos, they are always pushing forward music in a direction not many venture into. They are definitely innovators.

Around The World Music Video after the jump for a bit of nostalgia.

Care For Some Lil’ Jon Wine? EEEYYYEEEAAAHHH!!

April 4, 2008

Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz

In what is sure to be the greatest thing since Haley’s comet collided with the moon is the announcement that Lil’ Jon will be releasing his very own wine. While not as hoity-toity as other beverages the rapper was interviewed about it:

Lil Jon acknowledges that he’s no wine connoisseur. “I’m not no ‘drink wine every day’ kind of dude,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’m not like an expert, so don’t ask me no questions … I just like the taste.”

So people, get ready fo’ the revolution. Break out and start polishing those goblets that you packed away, which by the way how dare you did that to begin with. Go call all the video ho looking bitches you know and get the blunts sparking cuz we be ready to get low on some 750mL Lil’ Jon Cabernet or maybe even a Shiraz. With some wangs and side o’ ranch BIOTCH!

Crackers and cheese too? OOOOKKKAAYY!!

Pop’n Music (ポップンミュージック) Madness

November 26, 2007

Now watch this and try telling your friends, “Oh dude, I so rock at games. I am 1337 beyond belief.” Wait, what’s that? What did you say? Did you just cry a little while your penis retreated into the warmth of your torso? That’s ok sonny, girls will still like you despite not having the 10 inch Pop’n Music e-Penis.

If you are wondering still what this game is, it is from Japan and falls into the Bemani category of games. I have tried it and it is fun but not my style. Also as one friend put it, “it looks like you are George Jetson working at Spacely’s Space Sprockets” and that killed it for me. I am not down with looking like a pussy-whipped retard of the future. I prefer to strive for something more manly.

Rip Slyme’s SPEED KING Video

November 6, 2007

Rip Slyme Speed King

Of the many groups out there, Rip Slyme is one that I actually listen to. Their smooth raps and cool voices go down like a menthol cigarette. I am in flavor country. This is their new video for their song SPEED KING. If you are still wondering who the hell they are:

Rip Slyme is a Japanese hip hop group. It is composed of 4 MCs; Ryo-Z, Ilmari, Pes & Su, and 1 DJ, Fumiya. Their sound derives its influences from old school hip hop and other Hip Hop such as The Pharcyde, De La Soul, Public Enemy, Jurassic 5, the Beastie Boys, DJ Premier, Leaders of the New School.

Smooth.

When Rapper’s Names Attack Good Taste

October 5, 2007

Oh Snap

It’s no surprise that lots of rappers have stupid names. To his credit, Kayne West has a normal name. He didn’t adopt some moniker like Master P or Professor King Bean. It is like they were playing darts with a dictionary and then smooshed the random words together. They might as well had used the rap name auto-generator. Take me for example, no one will mess with MC Nasty Cube of the Underground.

Funny is that most of the really stupid names come from people in or involved with the Wu-Tang Clan. Despite being some of the greatest rappers ever: GZA, The RZA, Raekwon, Method Man, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Unfortunately it also lent itself to other abortions such as Brooklyn Zu, ODB’s side job with his cousins and fellow retards.

Shorty Shitstain.
