Mercy ft. Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz,

Say what you want.. but Ye keeps coming with the fiyah!! .. I fools with this right here.. Like the video too.. Niggaz are on their apocalypse baller insurgent type steezee.. HAHAH. Teyana Taylor and Kid Cudi make appearances too .. in the video .. j/k .

Ayeeeee!!!..Big K.r.i.t………. Money on the Floor..

Pick that money up off the floor potna!!!

Here’s a little country fried trill for ya on this Sunday Afternoon..Big K.R.I.T,  The return of 8ball and MJG, with Tittyboi or 2Chainz (whichever you prefer lol)…

Go buy his new single “Money on the Floor  over on Itunes  and check out the rest of his situation .!! Follow him on twitter: @BIGKRIT

He is underrated in our honest opinion .  He needs to be getting way more shine.  Big K.R.I.T (King Remember In Time)  is currently signed to Def Jam Records, we are expecting huge things from him this year.

The Machines are winning- VIP Records Closes it’s Doors

How sad is this!!!!!! ..Worldfamous VIP Records has been a LANDMARK on the West Coast forever.  I am sure everyone remembers the image of a young Snoop Dogg posted atop the record store  in the “What’s My Name” video.

Kevin Anderson Sr. has had to endure some lean times since 2003 while trying to hold the shop together. He states that now he and his son “can barely pay rent or the utilities”.  This seems impossible but like so many record chains (Virgin, Tower) in LA.  People just don’t care about buying CD’s and Records like that from record shops.  People just want to Download from the comfort of home. Amoeba is the antithesis to this but the majority of shops are closing quickly.

 Itunes and music downloading is convenient but we never stop to think about the small mom and pop record shops we grew up with closing down or going bankrupt.  You know that going into Big Ben’s in LA off La Brea or sitting in VIP Records listening to the latest Con Funk Shun or Eric B and Rakim album was quite different than running to Target to listen to music at one of those little kiosks..

This was more than just a place to buy music and posters,  this was a place which housed the studio from whence Snoop and Warren G first created demos. Sir Jinx had a studio in this building.  The West Coast Gangsta Rap Foundation has bricks with VIP stamps on them.  Technology has given way to so much.  Read more about the demise of a part of history at LA WEEKLY. 

White Bitches have gone crazy LOL!!!! IGGY AZALEA

wow.. well let me get ready for the backlash.. I present to you.. Iggy Azalea.. she hails from Australia but currently resides in LA.. she feels she is hood.. and doesn’t like comparisons to that other Grey chick.. KREAYSHAWN..

Here is an interview with this chick over at http://yourfriendshouse.com

I say .. GAME ON.. u white hoes need to battle LOL..

Her first joint was affectionately named “PUSSY”… and it went viral.. she is currently unsigned but I am sure that will change soon.. for whatever reason. She also owns part of a WEAVE company… lol.. i suppose that garners some type of hood accolade but DAMN lol.

Her first free Mixtape was released in September and is entitled “IGNORANT ART”.. (click and download)

I suppose the cover gives a nod to the Andy Warhol/Basquiat BOXING GLOVE piece..

Progressive and Ignorant all at once .. *blank stare*.. any hoo.. IT’S WHAT THE KID’S ARE LISTENING TO SO… WEIGH IN.. lol

annnddd.. the bitch is in violation.. rumor has it her new beau is my young stuff (in my head) ASAP ROCKY LOL..  at least that is what the news is on AllHipHop.com (yup i just tossed you guys precariously under the bus lol)

Can Control……

As the summer nears it’s end.. it is time for bamboobanga to look back at a fulfilling summer.  This was a horrible summer I ain’t even gonna lie, but there were bright spots and our trip to MOCA for Art in the Streets was undoubtedly one of them.  This exhibit which ran from April to the first week in August, broke records for the David Geffen space.  Looks like Jeffrey Deitch kicked some ass during his first year:

I am both elated and truly surprised that this particular exhibit garnered  this type of attendance.

MOCA announced today that the exhibition Art in the Streets, presented in the first year of MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch’s tenure at the museum, attracted 201,352 visitors from April 17–August 8, 2011, marking the highest exhibition attendance in the museum’s history. Previous attendance records were set with the museum’s presentations of Andy Warhol Retrospective (2002) and ©MURAKAMI (2007), which welcomed 195,000 and 149,323 visitors, respectively. With this exhibition, MOCA expects to double its annual attendance this year to 400,000 visitors. (MOCA.ORG)

To that I say ..AWESOMMEEE..  We attended both Andy Warhol and the Murakami sessions and of those exhibits , I must say we returned to Art in the Streets 3 times .. OK..

It was a wonderful foray into the world of street art past and present.

Each decade and scene was represented. It took you from the first  Krylon Can in the 30’s to the LowRider Ice Cream Truck sitting on Daytons in the RIGHT NOW …. .. I mean it was awesome.. Everyones art was well represented ; from Lee Quinones to the homies Legit and Soon ( The King with the most tags on Venice)..

Peace to the Young Lords.. and RIP to both those brothas and MIKE ONE…

Street Art and it’s origins differ between East and West Coasts respectively , Los Angeles’ urban art has roots  represented by the cholo stylings of Charles “Chaz” Bojórquez his work can be cited back to 1969.

Our walls and yards have always been dominated by Gang Graffitti, visions of Guadalupe, Hand signs, RIP blocks , and Roll Calls; these things have always been present on our ghetto streets.  They were usually helpful indicators as to who’s hood you were in and where the hell you were, if you were paying attention.  We then branched out into traditional Hip Hop styled graffiti around the late 70’s to early 80’s.

The East Coast’s version of “writing on the walls”,  was created for similar reasons and additionally, to try to beautify, (in the hood’s own way) ,the raggedy ass buildings and pissy alleyways we must look at every damn day.  Taggers and Artists made sure to bomb every hallway, train, freeway off ramp, building space etc.. until the whole neighborhood looked like a comic strip.

A comic strip that some people swore looked like hell.  Major pieces though on trains and buildings were more than just a “throw up”.   These are the types of pieces that you see in say “Wild Style” or “Style Wars” or even at your local laundry mat or liqour store, these jawns require planning.. I mean you have to blueprint the colors, the measurements, how much paint is required etc..

You must….plan that shit out in your black book and create magic in the streets ..

Thank H.E.R Now… The BangerSisters already did…!!!!

Ness B was finally able to catch up with Jamla/IWWMG recording artist, Rapsody.   We really appreciate the innate skill that Ms. RAP is bringing to the table.  She was a big delightful SURPRISE..a surprise from North Carolina, even better. She is a young lady simply rhyming ..under the tutelage of beat impressario, 9th Wonder. She is just basking in the shine of being an ‘EMCEE”. Not the baddest bitch, or the ho with the most ends, or the biggest ass.  Just a female wordsmith in love with the hip hop game for the “culture and essence” of it all.

SuperbNess caught up with Rapsody Friday for a quick chat……..

Pour out a little liquor…..

His music was an escape for me back then…gave me hope. I was intrigued by him and his lyrical messages. He acknowledged the struggle and knew it was real. His words are still relevant till this day. I’m still devastated by his murder. Few years after his death I eased up on litening to him soo much due to it making me depressed and sad. I would even cry…I suffered thru the years and shed so many tears.

Rest in Power 2pac and mc breed
