The Pirate Signal

I saw these guys open for Public Enemy in Aspen, not far from their native Denver. While Colorado isn't known as a breeding ground for hip-hop talent, The Pirate Signal was pretty impressive. Their style is in the vein of Gym Class Heroes circa "Cupid's Choke-hold", with an emo spin to a upbeat sound. As far as I could tell, the frontman, Yonnas, had been smoking funny things all night, but he was coherent enough to spit some fire and sell me an album. What a champ.

Fun Stuff. Real cool live.

I thought it was clever.

If you liked the other stuff, pick up the full mixtape. Pretty good shit.

(PS - TJ, Zshare works great)

The Magical Chambers

Straight from the 36 chambers and live from abbey road, I bring you Sgt. Pepper, Ghostface Killah, yellow submarines and wu tang killa bees. A very well produced and mixed compilation of Wu's finest on Britain's gift to humanity, the Beatles. Most of you have heard Dj Danger Mouse' the Grey Album featuring Jay-Z's black and the Beatles' white albums. Pretty good stuff but im going to argue that this mixtape is even better with a wider range of Beatles samples. Ya got's to have it!

ehh, i still dont know how to put on links so just get it off of kanyeblog.

King Day Post

Good Morning Friends,

After much pleading, I have been added as a contributor this blog. I am very honored and will do my best to provide a cultural and musical insight on the current happenings of this day.

Seeing as it is the conlusion of the civil rights activist/martyr, Martin Luther King Jr., here are a few posts in relevance to the dream that Dr. King lived and died for (I havent learned the trade of putting up mp3 links so the youtube clips will have to suffice: "Fight the Power" -Public Enemy
A hit song from Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, not pro non-violence but at least pro-black folks. "MotherF**k the KKK"- Willie Dee
A classic in every African-American vinyl collection. You tell 'em Willie Dee, show those mean-spirited illiterate ghost headed ______ that we mean business!

Because Dr. King was killed in Memphis, Tennesse by alleged James Earl Ray while helping black sanitation workers. I chose to throw in Yo Gotti (not a huge fan but dope track nontheless) with a sample repping the town where Dr. King was shot.

Walking in Memphis ft. 8Ball- Yo Gotti

Not sure how it applies to MLK but still dope track with Raekwon, CNN, and Styles P that takes part in Alicia Keys "Empire State of Mind Part II rmx."

Kanye, Saul Williams, Jay-Z...nuff said. Real talk. Yall heard on the College Dropout and Im resurec -"Never Let Me Down"

Lastly, but not least, Jay-Z, Faith Evans, and my boy Biggie - "A Dream" (with biggie mashup"

R.I.P. Dr. King
