Kountry Wayne Loves The Kids, And He Went Viral And Got His Comedy Grind On To Keep His Fed (Video)

Y’all know Kountry Wayne, right? He started on the Facey-Space. And he was hustling before, but with EIGHT kids to feed… he had to REALLY be about getting his bag BIGGER (like $70K a month bigger, daayumm). More on Wayne after the jump.

Interesting the level of success at several ventures Kountry Wayne has had thus far (like never having a bad night in stand up comedy? Wow). Positive attitude, confidence, forward motion, working hard & smart for the right reasons. Good stuff.

Shannon Sharpe Says, “Let Me Celebrate!” So Remix God Suede Dropped This Beat And It Was On (Video)

For some reason, this does not seem to have gone as viral as the “Evaculation” mash. But please believe that this “Milds & That Yak” clip flip is just as much a trip.

Remix God Suede went HARD and brought out them Sharpe BARZ for Shannon! Hahaaaaa!

The SquADD Debates The ‘Best Chocolate Bar’ Ever (Video)

The struggle is SO real in this All Def Digital clip… the struggle not to laugh until you cry! Every candy bar in this “discussion” is someone’s favorite, so that’s not up for debate. But just like any food review panel the squADD convenes, the joning/cracking/bagging/janking is EPIC. They just cannot resist going in on each other, can they?

Look. Make up your mind about which candy you like early, then enjoy the hilarity of the panelists giving each other the business! Bwaaahahaa!

The killer lyrical combo Apathy & O.C. let another one off “Perestroika” though? Ha! Trying to act ‘fake surprised’… C’mon maaannn! When the music is this dope, the EASY way to promote is to keep leaking heat to the street, little by little. This leak is in visual format – “Soviet Official” (produced by MoSS).

Method Man Remembers & Praises The Excellence Of Prodigy (Video)

Meth says Prodigy was ‘Top 5’ in his day… PLUS he was a fan. Dopest and most real thing a colleague can say in almost any field of endeavor; but esp. so in Hip-Hop. One more RIP to Prodigy of Mobb Deep.

This body-bobbing beat will have you locked in before you get ‘hold of what the lyrics are saying. So know in advance you will need to click to play again to start catching what Rez & Rojas (and Dani) are putting down about being in a messed up place and getting into something (e.g. someone) that makes things a bit messier.

Kaytranada – “2017 07 04” / “2017 09 01 – SUS” / “2017 – 38” (Instrumental)

Um… okay K. So, just tossing these out there with no plan. Of course, we’re good with that, but you good? Too late! Because we are taking these jawns and running with them. Hahaaa! Get at the streams family!

Simply titled “2017 07 04,” “2017 09 01 – SUS,” and “2017 – 38,” these are the latest Kaytranada instrumentals.

Yasiin Bey On Politics And Rap, And Weighs In On The Possibility Of Another Mayweather/McGregor Event, “No. HELL NO!” (Video)

Interesting point Yasiin made, speaking on Mayweather vs. McGregorConor just took a page out of Floyd’s book. We saw it. Barking it up, making it an event (rather than a fight, we saw it was NOT a fight).

Yasiin Bey Talks opens up on the Mayweather/McGregor fight, South Africa Travel Issues, his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s stance, tearing down of the US monuments, the current state of rap and more!
– HOT 97

Of course, esp. now that we are far removed from the ‘event,’ we can see what Yasiin sees: That FloydConor do not keep doing business (e.g. that was a one-time thing).

Eljay Williams Presents The Soundtrack For His “Pathways” Movie (Mixtape)

Dope movies ought to have dope sounds associated with them, right? Yes. Like this “Pathways” flick. Good movie. Confirmed because the squad saw and approved (you should if you have not already). Now, for the tunes. Listennnn!

All music on this soundtrack either appeared in the film Pathways (Sean’s Lament), has been used to promote the film or has been inspired by the film. These are some of my favorite songs from some of the dope artists I know and were part of my backdrop while writing the film. These artists’ words and sound inspired me and I am grateful that they lent their talents to my dream. Thank you all.
Eljay Williams

Peep the trailer after the jump.

Young RJ – “Blaq Royalty” (Album Stream)

Impressive for a debut LP. Although heads are like, “about damn time, RJ,” it is still a debut. It’s been said you are known by the company you keep. Applied to a project… known by the features. So peep: J Ivy, Pete Rock, Boldy James, BJ The Chicago Kid, Joyner Lucas, Statik Selektah, Supa Kaine, and Guilty Simpson. That’s a LOT of DOPE company! Enjoy this FREE stream.

YOUNG RJ – BLAQ ROYALTY

WESTSIDEDOOM – “2 Stings” (Prod. By The Alchemist)

When MF DOOM is involved, there is just some stuff that comes with the territory… beats like this (even when Alchemist is doign ’em). Airiness and dark starkness to the stop-go flows (even when Westside Gunn is the guest monster on the track). But that’s okay though. Because what also comes with it is that the product is gonna be dope. Westside Gunn + MF DOOM = WESTSIDEDOOM (that’s the math).
