So High My Shoes are Scraping The Sky
Uncharacteristically, I don't have a whole lot to say today. My mind is completely burnt right now----and no, bitch---it doesn't have a damn thing to do with my little weed habit. In order to assure that I get my vacation days at the end of this week, I've had to sell my soul to the devil (aka my boss). If you've ever worked a day in your miserable life, then you can probably relate. However, even though I've been working my ass off for very little gratitude or compensation, I have still made some time to explore all things dope, entertaining, and mildly amusing. Appreciate...
John Legend and Lauryn Hill have been collaborating on material for both of their upcoming albums. Here is an article about their joint efforts (past and present):
Also, at Cuban Links (http://onlybuilt4.blogspot.com/) you can download the duo's remix of "So High", a song which originally appeared on Legend's Get Lifted LP.
Before I move past the subject of John Legend, I wanted to mention that he's embarking on a tour of Australia with the Black Eyed Peas. My only purpose in stating this is to have an opportunity to say that BEP really suck nowadays. Legend might as well be on the road with what's her name...Ashlee Simpson...or someone equally talentless and annoying. I guess I'm extraordinarily bitter about The Peas because they were actually pretty damn groovy at one point...
This is unrelated of course, but are there any Trekkies out there? Any Lord of the Rings fans? Anyone currently breathing and/or paying way too many taxes? If you fall into any of these categories, you have to see this weird-ass old school video with Leonard Nimoy doing some kind of twisted tribute to Bilbo Baggins: http://www.fazed.org/video/view/?id=75. It's so strange that it defies words, but LSD was definitely somehow involved. Vulcans don't know why, they just love to get high...
Speaking of drugs, if you're ready to get off of them (you lazy, listless, waste of space), maybe Dr. Huxtable can help your sorry ass. Go here to download Bill Cosby Talks To Kids About Drugs...a classic recording from 1971:
Don't sleep on "Captain Junkie" or "Dope Pusher" for even one more second.
The man Es-Won has a lot of great mp3s and links posted over at Jungle Mission: http://junglemission.blogspot.com/.
And lastly, The Smoking Gun just posted NYPD's secret hip-hop dossier. They've definitely unearthed some semi-interesting information. Did you know that Busta once had to call the po-po because his baby mama pulled out some of his hair? All of this (and more) here:
