Wale + Jerry Seinfield Part.1



Strip Clubs and Chicken Wings






After watching this on WSHH I was eager to know if there were more and luckily I found at least two others on YouTube. I  recall Wale going off on Complex Magazine regarding their "50 Best Albums of 2013" article because his album The Gifted was overlooked; I am surprised to see this amazing squash of beef. My hopes are that they will one day turn this into a full on sitcom as it is like the meeting of the greats. Jerry is the King of making shows about nothing turn into a 25 year old influential programs and Wale is the poetic artist that exudes great artistry/creativity while keeping it trill. I have watched all of the Wale and Jerry conversations and every one left me wanting more. Maybe my wish will come true and these two, along with Complex, can create a long standing dope collaboration sitcom so people can stop watching the nonsense on television. LOL


I hope you enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Flashback Fridaze : NAS "One Mic

All I Need Is One Mic








                               "All I need is one blunt, one page, and one pen

                                    One prayer, tell God forgive for one sin

                                Matter fact maybe more than one, look back
                                at all the hatred against me, fuck all of them" 

                                                       -Nasir Jones

Augu$t Ru$h: "NO HAND-OUTS" Mixtape


Ahhhright
Straight Out The Gutta




SOTG/BlowTheBankEnt's very own, Augu$t Ru$h, dropped NO HAND-OUTS last Thursday and has the streets ready for an album from this young man. NO HAND-OUTS is what he is calling the mixtape before the actual mixtape and if so I don't think any of us will be ready. His newly released mixtape is comprised of 13 tracks and has features from Pyro Traxx, Barnz, Jacene Mills, Pessoz, and Mook Love. A few of my favorite tracks would have to be "Walking Dead","F.I.Y.S", and "Bodega" just to name a few.
Being that I have had the ability to witness Augu$t in action perfecting his craft I am very well assured that this young man is going to go far. Not only does he make great music but he also is a fashion designer, model, writer, and his freestyles will mesmerize you. His mixtape is receiving much love and support online as well as in the streets as you can find him out there providing that work (CD's) while connecting with the people. Augu$t Ru$h is up next and if you haven't familiarized yourself by now I will provide all you need to get in tune LOL.






*** Brief Bio ***
At only 22 years young, Augu$t Ru$h has been taking the streets and internet by storm. After bubbling in his native Yonkers and Mount Vernon Ny, Hitting cypher after cypher, show after show, and underground radio stations from all over the country he's made quite a staple for himself. And old soul trapped with a young man his sound is gritty yet educated and his lyrics are vivid and for the timid a bit graphic which makes it easier to relate to. Take a listen and see what life's like on the SouthSide of the 914

Asher Roth "Pull It"

Asher Roth
RetroHash






Far to the right
Gone to the break of dawn, off for the night
Lost in a vacant lot, parked on a light
Crossed and it's shaking too long or a fight
And all in my might, call her I might
Know that I shouldn’t cause its hard to be nice
Boys gotta pick it when the arguments right
Stars and the stripes, off when a hall make me larger than life
Aw, beep beep, knees deep in a DC
Please need these demons to leave me
Need peace, no reason to repeat
Retreat, it’s easy, just release
Relief, be free, let it go
Fiening a leaf, ain't no need to control
Planting a seed, let me reap what I sow
Defeated the pieces he blow, pow

Music Gives Life : Beyonce "7/11"

I awoke…. and life was given




Shoulders sideways, smack it, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack you in the air
Shoulders sideways, smack it, smack it in the air
Smack it, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack it, smack it in the air
Smack it, smack it in the air

***Not only is this song and production completely off the charts but the visual is crazy. It definitely makes me want to just dance around oh so joyously while in my spray painted panties sipping from a red cup. Beyonce let us in and gave us the business. Every woman can relate to dancing around with her friends, maybe in underwear, while drinking and just having fun. That's what this reminds me of for sure… a hell of a slumber party! ***

In My Feelings, As Usual: Jhene Aiko "Pressure"


It's that moment when your body and your mind are at war with one another. The temptation to want that in which you should refrain from causes havoc on the emotions. The pressure to stay away when you are so drawn toward. Self has no control over the visions of ecstasy and LUST…. So the pressure told me to run away!





"Up till the sun rises
There's no compromising
I know, I know, I know
You are such a liar"

Artist: Jhene Aiko
Album: Souled Out

Sundays Jam: ScHoolBoy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar "Blessed"


"Stay blessed my nigga, blessed my nigga
Really think about it, could be worse my nigga
Don't stress my nigga, yes my nigga
We all blessed my nigga"






After a difficult weekend I needed this for sure. Feeling a little discouraged yet trying to fight through the mistakes I figured life could definitely be a lot worse. In life there will be heartbreak, disappointments, discouragement, darkness and more but they never last forever. We have the ability to cause ourselves to think too much at times when the moment should be executed naturally. Over thinking for me is a sign of insecurity as if you were already as confident in self then you wouldn't second guess that in which should be natural. Most of the time our past has shaped us into who we think we are, want to be, and who our spirit knows we are destined to become. It's time for some mental change over here. Anyway, enjoy another powerful song from ya boy ScHoolboy Q.

Love Day B!

PARTYNEXTDOOR "Thirsty"


"Thirsty, baby bring it over here"




I am slightly embarrassed for the amount of lust that I have for PARTYNEXTDOOR. Not only is he 21 but his music makes you want to party, fall in love, fall out of love, dislike that lover, but still want to be with them. LOL. This singer, songwriter, and producer from Ontario is about to dominate $hit if you ask me. Melodic verses, accompanied by amazing production, and an oh so seductive storyline has me on a PARTYNEXTDOOR binge.  He is signed to Drake's OVO Sound Label and if you ask me he is one great addition to that already epic team. Party released his first mixtape, PARTYNEXTDOOR, in 2013 and his first album was released in July of his year. I have taken a listen to both and I can promise you I am in love completely. SIGHS.  "Thirsty", "Sex On The Beach", and "Recognize" ft. Drake are a few hits from his latest self titled album PARTYNEXTDOORTWO.  Enjoy!
