POW! Park Prankster Gets Knocked The F##k Out (Video)

Bwaaahaha! Oh well. Shout to Simple Misfits channel but… Daaaamn!! Guess there is NO polite way to tell someone to kiss your azz. Well, dude did warn him at 1:30 (Listen for it: “Somebody gone knock yo’ azz out…”). This video captures TWO of the realest answers to “Wanna kiss my azz?” … everrrr. My fav is from the Indie artist who stayed in grind mode: “Wanna CD?” Watch. Just WATCH!

Yasiin Gaye – “B Stands For Beef” (Soul Mates Tribute)

a0339095354_10

Word to the wise, my ‘digger’… Don’t sleep on these Yasiin Gaye releases. RIAA (you know, the Grammy folks) has been having the nice releases taken down due to ‘copyright violations.’ But if you are on top of things you’ll have scooped up hot ones (for FREE) like this before anyone could take them down anyway, right? Boooo… RIAA. Could call it hate. Not beef though.

“Beef don’t come with a radio edit.” First leak from Yasiin Gaye – The Return (Side Two).

- Amerigo Gazaway

This is another Yasiin Bey x Marvin Gaye (Yasiin Gaye) mashup from Amerigo Gazaway entitled “B Stands For Beef” (Soul Mates Tribute).
