The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Jay-Z & Nas – The Eulogy


Here is a track remebering the memory of the Notorious B.I.G. along with two other great luminaries, Jay-z and Nas.

This song was created to celebrate and commemorate the life of the late, great Notorious BIG. As the 2nd “Deleted Scene” from the “City of God’s Son” project, I wanted to show my respects by creating this song, and create a parallel world where Biggie still lives.

MGMT “Flash Delirium”


So its been widely known that MGMT is releasing a new album in a month or so. Well here i the first track to be heard from that album. It features elements of the MGMT sound heard in the past. That Flute, halfway through was not expected at all but still very welcome. Now you can download the track at the MGMT site as well as play it below here on Uristocrat.

Aknowledge Spring 2010


Aknowledge gives us a look at their new products for the Spring/Summer 2010 season. The collection features one of my favorite items, Chambray shirts as well as dome denim. The denim should standout since its made by the same people behind PRPS. These looks are now available through Aknowledge stockists.

The Power Rankings: March 9nd Edition, The Oscars, The Lakers, Ron Artest, Allen Iverson, iPad and More


1. Oscars recap: To sum it up, Hurt Locker and Avatar won most of the awards and Precious, Up!, and The Blind Side won the rest. Honestly, I’m not a big awards show guy, but the bad jawns are enough to have me tune in for a minute here and there.

Best Picture: The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow)
Actor in a Leading Role: Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart)
Actress in a Leading Role: Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side)
Actress in a Supporting Role: Mo’nique (Precious)
Directing: The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow

2. Ben Roethlisberger slaying all the joints: Ben really messed up this time, or so it seems. Ben picked up his 2nd sexual assualt accusation in a year over the weekend, and in response hired the same lawyer that helped Ray Lewis get away with murder get out of legal trouble a few years back. Whether he’s guilty or not, at this point the Steelers have to be concerned with their franchise QBs shennanigans off the field, if they weren’t already concerned about his partying/womanizing/gambling/motorcycling/obesity incidents in the past.

3. Drake – Over: Well we’ve finally heard from Drake on the solo tip and of course the reaction is mixed. The Drake stans love it, the Drake haters hate it, and most of us in the middle are on the fence about it. I’m not a big fan of this record, and I’ve been underwhelmed by a lot of his post “So Far Gone” work, but his fan base seems to be solid enough to carry a lackluster to at least gold, if it comes down to that.

4. Fabolous’ Latest Mixtape: Fab teamed up with DJ Drama to drop “There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral.” The consesus seems to be that its fire. Fab’s had an interesting career: he’s always been a good MC and has a lot of fans, but it hasn’t translated into big commercial success. It will be interesting to see if a mixtape this successful will give him a bump in the stores.

5. Lil Wayne goes to jail …. finally: Well it seems like @liltunechi is finally going to the bing ….. I wouldn’t be surprise if he left some goodies for us, I’d be really surprised if he’d let the world go 365 without any new Weezey music, especially considering all of the delays involved in his case.

6. Warm weather: I’m not sure how long its going to last, but the forecast for this week says 60 under each day. I’m going to do my best to enjoy it. Sunshine, you have been missed.

7. Los Angeles Lakers 3 game skid & Ron Artest’s Rodman Impression: The Lakers have lost their 3rd game in a row for the first time since they added Pau Gasol (who’s bitching about his role in the offense btw), and have already lost more games this year than last. But, what’s more of a concern for me is the fact that Ron Artest did his best Dennis Rodman imitation on Sunday, dying his hair purple and gold. Ron-Ron, unless you’re going to pull down 18 boards a night like the worm, don’t fool around with the hair dye.

8. iPad release date announced: The iPad is dropping on April 3, starting at $499. This news sent Apple’s stock soaring, and made every parent of a kid aged 16-23 shed a tear.

9. Allen Iverson personal Troubles: Allen Iverson’s life seems to be falling apart right in front of us. Career, likely over. Marriage, likely over. Alcohol and gambling issues, exposed. All of this happened within a week. Only time will tell what happens to Iverson, but the hall-of-fame guard seems to be on his way to rock bottom, if he’s not already there.

10. Zach Galifinakis on SNL: watch it and laugh, if you haven’t already. if you have, watch it and laugh again.

Ludacris x War: Remixed by Emynd


This is a pretty nice remix of Ludacris “How Low,” done by Philly’s own Emynd. I wouldnt have thought of mixing War with Ludacris but it came out pretty nice. I will let Emynd describe it himself:

I’ve been bitching constantly on Twitter about how there’s already way too many “How Low” remixes floating around, none of which are close to touching the perfection that is the original. So, my completely stupid way of voicing my distaste for this over-abundance of remixes was to do a cheeky, fun, non-club-focused remix as a completely ineffective and hypocrtical protest. So I threw the acapella on top of War’s classic “Low Rider” and re-arranged things a bit making it into a fun little BBQ blend.

Air Jordan VI (6) Retro 2010 White Varsity Red


Here we take a look at a pair of Air Jordan VIs which are set to release in the spring of 2010. This pair features colors similar to the original Air Jordan VI White-Infrared which debuted in 1990. That original pair of Air Jordan VIs was released in Jordan’s 1991-1992 season in which he won his first NBA Championship. The 2010 edition of the colorway features a mostly white upper, infrared and gel sole, and its pull-tab draws inspiration from the spoiler on a Porsche. The sneaker is currently available on OSneaker.

Zach Galifinakis… Is the Man…

Well he’s the man because he is hilarious. Simply hilarious… He got his chance to host Saturday Night Live this weekend and I had to catch it on DVR. A great choice because it was pretty funny at times. His monologue to start out the show was hilarious even with this line “”I like dark comedies. That’s why I like the Wayans Brothers.”

Or this great sketch about Bidets

Nike Air Max CB34


The 2010 Holiday season will see the release of the Nike Air Max CB34. This sneaker was originally released in the 1990’s as Charles Barkleys second signature sneaker. This Black/Club Purple-Team Orange colorway will retail for $160.
