Technology: Carnegie Mellon Has A Way To Capture Memories In 3-D (Video)

So you are looking at a scrapbook full of pictures and sharing memories with your folks. A pleasant afternoon, right? Probably. But then comes the start of the “that’s not how it happened” argument. How about the “y’all should’ve been there” comment about events a recaller swears he could show you better than he can tell you?

Well, Carnegie Mellon has stepped up in the coolest way with some of the coolest tech. Man! Watch this short clip, and imagine instant replay or crime scene investigations being enhanced with rich 3-D video/photo like this. Incredible! Some Hollywood ‘Avatar’ *ish on the next level.

Kickstarter: Massive Ammo For Your Next Water Balloon Fight (Video)

Maaann! This should be out NOW! Heads would getting splatted!! Haaaa. Water balloon fights were the best back in the day, but chances are you could only have one, two… maybe three on deck for the battle. Not a lot of ammo for a ‘sustained battle.’ And how many balloons popped or split at the lip when filling or stretching them over the faucet/spigot to start? Well, no more.

Fill and tie hundreds of water balloons in minutes with our attachment that comes ready-to-go, no preparation necessary!

Yeah. Tinnus Enterprises’ Kickstarter page promises that Bunch O Balloons will fill and tie 100 water balloons in less than 1 minute. Oh, and for those who don’t care or don’t care for fun in general (haters). It doesn’t matter. Because the Kickstarter campaign is over 6900% funded. In fact, Tinnus is taking pre-orders right now for this party product (anticipated to market Spring-Summer 2015)!

Kudos to inventor Josh Malone (and his testers kids).

Rakim Challenges The New School: ‘So Whatchu Saying?’ (Interview)

rakimWhen the G.O.D.M.C. aka The 18th Letter aka Rakim Allah speaks, especially on Hip-Hop, it’s worth taking heed. Well, Keenan Higgins over at Green Label Sounds did more than take heed. He took notes! Wrote up an article chock full of insight.

I just need younger artists to understand the power that they have. What you’re saying, people are listening to. Don’t take it for granted that you just writing rhymes. Young kids are listening. Y’all are influencing a lot of people, so watch what you say.

Homeboy Sandman – “America The Beautiful” (Prod. By Jonwayne)


Shout out to Bad Magics for a killer find by a staple artist over here. This new Homeboy Sandman joint, “America The Beautiful,” is…beautiful. Embodying the internal conflict of those Americans who love the country but know it’s far from perfect. Truly balanced commentary. Homeboy Sandman doing a lyrical homage to what makes “America The Beautiful” in the midst of our struggle. A ‘Beautiful Struggle’ (word to Kweli) to be certain. Produced by Jonwayne. Sandman’s LP “Hallways” drops September 2, 2014.


Technology: The Maker Of Hoverbike Needs Your Help To Make It A Reality (Video)

Kickstarter lets us fund everything; including the future! Check out the above video, and imagine being able to ride a Hoverbike. That’s right, you can be part of the creation of the world’s first flying motorcycle. Nice!

Declared “a revolution in aviation” by the project head, Chris Malloy, the Hoverbike is the result of years worth of R&D to combine the simplicity of a motorbike and the freedom of a helicopter. Cheaper, more rugged and easier to use, the Hoverbike flies like a quadcopter, and can be flown unmanned or manned, while being a safe – low level aerial workhorse with low on-going maintenance.

We are in the final construction stages of the latest manned prototype of Hoverbike, and in a few months we will start flight testing. After the successful completion of test flights we will build a final engineering prototype for submission to aviation certification authorities.

Oh yeah. This is happening. It’s over 66% funded already. Watch and wonder above. Follow the link to get in on this below.

Dayne Jordan – “I Want It All” (Prod. By DJ Jazzy Jeff) [Video]

Put your best foot forward, and put your next foot forward. If you take steps toward it, when ain’t no steps to warm up, that’s how you get toward it. Go for the goal, and you get rewarded.
Dayne Jordan

Super dopeness from Dayne Jordan (the artist formerly known as Dosage, now rapping under his government name) – a Philly born emcee whose steady grind and polish befits that of a rising star. Dig the GoPro cam shots (giving a first person view to the dawn of his day).

Relatively little is known about the up-and-coming artist thus far; but we do know he’s still rocking @THEREALDOSAGE on Twitter. He also makes no secret that super-producer and fellow Philadelphian DJ Jazzy Jeff is squarely in his corner as music-maker and mentor. Dayne doesn’t appear to be leaning on Jeff for career advancement though. The music videos, as is the case above, don’t feature Jeff (or anyone really; basically him going in). However, the latest Vinyl Destination videos (chronicling Jazzy Jeff’s travels, gigs and hijinks) do sport cameos of the rapper; as well as some of his music.

The Other Guys – “Turn The Lights Out” (Video)

Double-shot with a bonus in this post. The Other Guys put this video out for “Turn The Lights Out”… AND we have the FREE download for this smooth jawn below. Conspicuous by its absence in the video above, there is a verse in the audio below. See, what had happened… ahh maaan, nobody knows. But we do know that the Guys’ “Seeds of Ambition” (LP) is out. So, that’s linked below.

Album, video, single…with a ‘bonus verse’ (actually that’s a triple with a bonus; four-point play).

Supa Dave West – “Let’s Rock”


Hip-Hop producer/percussionist Supa Dave West drops his debut instrumental album “Beat Boxing” on August 19, 2014. For anyone reading with the audacity to mumble, “So what…” Well…that’s why this post is up well before the LP. “Let’s Rock” makes you wanna… rock! Infectious beat with a soulful singing loop. Yeah. You’ll become a believer, perhaps enough to pre-order the full-length (iTunes link below).


Mobb Deep – “All A Dream” feat. The L.O.X. (Video)

It may seem like a dream but it’s real. Mobb Deep & The L.O.X. connect on some Queensbridge-Yonkers type ‘ish for this new video with the Biggie sample from his classic ‘Juicy’ record. It’s crazy to think it took this long for Prodigy, Havoc, Styles P, Sheek Louch, & Jadakiss to collaborate altogether in some way.  Maybe it’s a start of good things to come in terms of crew collabos.  For now peep the new video & cop the song off the latest Mobb Deep album ‘The Infamous Mobb Deep LP’ that’s out now.

Strobe & Essex – “Charades” (Produced By Jamille Malik)

Enjoy “Charades” – produced by Jamille Malik (nope, Strobe didn’t do the beat duty on this go ’round; just going in on the lyrics).


G.L.A.M. – “4Eva Lonely”

glam2You know what? Instead of us drawing comparisons about artistic style on this “4Eva Lonely”… you take a listen and tell us what you think. Now, it doesn’t spoil anything for us to say that it’s dope music. I mean, why else would it show up on here. G.L.A.M. stands for Good Lyrics And Music. Indeed! Oh, she did the lyrics and music herself. Yep. Now we gotta check for her upcoming album “FLAW” (due out September 2014).


MAHD – “Hello Detroit” (Video)

Happy Birthday to The 313 (aka Detroit, Michigan, USA)! Well, happy belated birthday. It was July 24, 2014.

Let’s celebrate with a video courtesy of MAHD for his “Hello Detroit” single. A little education on and a lot of love shown for his hometown in there. This song will appear on his debut album “13″ (due out this Fall). You can get the single off iTunes now though.
