A decade and change into the new millennium and style has all but buried substance. It’s all about aesthetics for the masses while some of us pine over the death of wax and CD’s and other wooly mammoth shit we used to rock that is gone with the wind.

Once upon a time I would have bet money on Jay-Z in the clutch. Somewhere along the line, that Bulls jersey became a Wizards and the magic went to Pisa to get pizza. Old man Hov got bodied by Kendrick and showed only traces of his former brilliance. Eaux.

Funny thing about Mike in that Wizards jersey though. Every so often there’s a play like that infamous two handed block that…

The Godfather trilogy stands the test of time as one of the true classics of Mafioso-inspired entertainment. Aside from the violence and the start power, what made the movies special was the craft. the focus and the energy and painstaking detail spent to bring out the authenticity of the movie. James Caan isn’t even Italian, but damn if you didn’t buy him as Sonny Corleone. Hip-Hop is…

N****s is actors…n****s deserve Oscars – The Late, Great Christopher Wallace

That line encapsulated all you need to know about mainstream rappers. Don’t get wrapped up in whether rappers are “real” or not. Focus on their music.
