Ice-T’s TEDxSingSing Talk On ‘Surviving’ (Video)

Recent throwback TEDx talk from Ice T. Great insights and a very worthwhile watch. In fact, I should not have even mentioned the throwback aspect. Relevant to today. Hear some real life struggles from the former light-skinned, light-eyed little kid named Tracy who had to turn gangsta just to survive growing up.

Shawn ‘Freshco’ Conrad Speaks On Life And Lessons Learned On Tour With Ice Cube And Too Short (Video)

Lots of Hip-Hop timeline to cover from the Freshco & Miz days to now. Cool thing is Shawn ‘Freshco’ Conrad has the memories and memorabilia to share a unique perspective on some dope moments with folks we knew… but not like how he knew them. Way more in this than Ice Cube’s “how to sign autographs” advice in this clip. Another awesome look back with Freshco!

The Evolution Of Hip-Hop (1979 – 2017) [Video]

Dope. Pretty dope! Google’s Doodle was definitely cool. We posted that here (and the SikzPho song it inspired here). But this is straight to YouTube video documenting a back then-to-now timeline of Hip-Hop. No commentary, just the tunes and visuals to drive it. Nice.

Fashawn – “Pardon My G” feat. Snoop Dogg (Prod. by Louie Lou)

Aha! Go back and peep that GGN episode where Uncle Snoop and nephew Fashawn were chopping it up and consuming the good smoked greens. That vibe they had would have to give birth to something like this. Fashawn – with Snoop Dogg on the feature – doing this “Pardon My G” with Louie Lou on the beat. Fresh off the “Manna” EP.

Joe Budden & Cyn Santana Are Expecting (Video)

Wow. It’s like Joe and Cyn got on lock (see them declare it during an interview here) and started the clock… or should we say “timer” since Cyn Santana has that Budden bun in the oven. Check out the lovey dovey photo shoot and featurette above.

Here’s to happiness for the two; and happiness for us, too, if Joe (or some other worthy emcee) hops on that banging azz beat playing in the video.

Cassidy – “I’m A Prodigy”

The only ghostwriter that be really writing with actual ghosts. Facts!
P in the booth with me right now!

By now, Cassidy almost HAS to say crazier and crazier stuff to keep us off balance and convinced that he is forever on point. Dude is pretty much saying he literally channeled the spirit of Prodigy AND got his cosign to get in the booth and lean on n!ggas. Wowwww.

But it is a dope freestyle though. Awesome flows over Mobb Deep beats.
