DJ Premier and Pete Rock mixing, cutting, and scratching records at New York’s Summer Stage in the Lower East Side is ILL

Achieving the next level of success in your life is ILL

Monday = Grind Time aka On Your Grizzly.  Another chance to take steps towards reaching your dreams and goals my ninja.  When times are hard on the boulevard you need tunnel vision to achieve what you want.  Like my ninja AG said “All I see is blinking lights, track boards, and phat mics, 950’s, SP12’s, MP60’s…”

Lands’ End Canvas Men’s Swim Trunks are ILL

It’s hot in August son.  Even hotter in the city.  When it’s hot you want to stay fly, and keep cool.  The beach is fly and the water is cool too.  Is the light bulb going off in your head yet?  Yeah me too my ninja.  THE BEACH SON! The beach has ladies walking and laying around almost butt naked, the water is cool, and the sand, the sand is freaky.  Freaky enough to roll around in, with a fine honie preferably. 

And you will need some swim trunks for the beach B. because swim trunks are made for swimming.  Know what I mean jelly bean.  Land’s End Canvas has some ILL swim trunks at even ILLER prices.  I personally coped a pair of these dope Lands’ End Canvas red board shorts on some retro 1982 swag for 50% off B!  $23.99

Lands' End Canvas Men's 5" Clean Board Shorts

And if you are feeling kind of bashful and aren’t man enough to show that much leg then Lands’ End Canvas has these ILL lime colored board shorts on sale for only $19.99.  Bam son!

Now you are ready post up on the beach looking fly and staying cool.  Peace to Red Alert and Kid Capri, Oooh La La, Ah Wee Wee, You say Muhammad Ali, I say Cassius Clay, you say butter I say Parkay!

April 19 marked the two year anniversay of the untimely death of Guru, of the famed Hip Hop duo Gangstarr. 

Guru can be summed up in two words “Hip Hop”.  Guru was and always will be Hip Hop.  Together Guru and DJ Premier created timeless records.  They created hip hop music in it’s purest and illest form, dope beats and dope rhymes!  They stayed true to their music and never changed their concept to sell records.  YOU CAN NOT, and I repeat YOU CAN NOT claim to be a fan of Hip Hop if you do not at least have an appreciation for Gangstarr’s music. And if you have never heard of Guru and/or Gangstarr you’re not allowed to discuss hip hop music with me because that’s like claiming to be an NBA fan and not  knowing who Larry Bird or Magic Johnson are.  Guru’s music inspires me and I hope brothas and sistas y’all keep playing his records.  As Mister Cee put it on his Hot 97 Guru Tribute Mix "The boy Guru didn’t have hits.  The boy Guru had catalogs".  So this weekend y’all turn the volume up and crank some Guru records hard body!  RIP Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal!
