Two Raider Klan members, Ethelwolf and Chris Travis go in over Almighty Beats production, with the final product sounding very Memphis.
The fellas of Overdoz. and director Calmatic never disappoint with their music videos, and their latest “Lauren London” is no exception with gorgeous women, plenty of humor, and creative scenes. The dested quartet use Iman Omari’s bouncy backdrop to exchange verses on the craziness involved in getting some “nu nu”: the jealousy, the exes, and the dank weed needed to make sense of it all. Hopefully this is a glimpse at what’s to come on the group’s next project.
Joey Fatts and The King Mike G link up for a really smooth joint over a slowed down Bob James sample by way of LeKen Taylor. With his past few offerings Joey Fatts has not disappointed. I have to agree, the 3 Commandments, “money, bitches, and weed” are all we really do need.

With so much hype and analysis put on the lottery pick, people seem to forget that the first round is more than just fourteen picks.
Mark Jackson was taken 15 picks after Dennis Hopson in the 1987 NBA Draft. Boston stole Rajon Rondo with the 21st selection in 2006 (16 picks after Shelden Williams) and Portland drafted Zach Randolph 19th in 2001 (15 picks after Eddy Curry). In 2009, Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson, and Jeff Teague went 17-18-19. Other notable late-round picks include David lee (30th/2005), Nick Young (16th/2007) and Jordan Crawford (27th/2010). The best part of the NBA Draft is the second half of the first round.
In a year criticized for a lack of superstar talent, plenty of impact players can find success. Perhaps it will be Michigan State’s Draymond Green, who spent four years and two Final Fours under Tom Izzo in the Big Ten. Perry Jones III is big, athletic, and overlooked coming from a strong Baylor team. Or maybe Jeremy Lamb, Connecticut’s leading scorer and Kemba Walker’s championship understudy, will emerge from the back end. The class is uncertain but the the pool is deep.
Dennis Hopson spent five seasons in the league before leaving to pursue what would be a modest career in six different countries overseas. Mark Jackson played in the NBA for 17 seasons, is third on the all-time assists list, and current coach of the Golden State Warriors. The NBA Draft is difficult to predict but it’s certainly more than a lottery.
After listening to the Yellow Album for about the 10th time, one feature caught my attention, and it’s not the one you expect. It was Niko-G4. The name sounded so familiar, and after scrolling through my iTunes library, I found his G4Tour tape. I’ll say school was the reason I didn’t post it, but I am now. If you haven’t listened, give the 19 year old Los Angeles artist a chance.
