For Namesake is the latest project released from acclaimed Detroit artist NameTag & his producer Nameless. This release form he Motor City duo is nothing short of Extraordinary and refreshing, breathing new life back into the rap game while paying homage to the groundwork that many legends in the game laid. The combination of cleaver wordplay & heavy punchline fueled rhymes from NameTag, and eclectic hard hitting beats from producer Nameless, this entire project elevates itself from rap album to an addictive head nodding and true to form Hip Hop  experience.

In the area of features NameTag was not shy about calling in some true next level talent with appearances from a couple Detroit legends, Miz Korona who is feature on ” Reaction”, Guilty Simpson on “Raw, Dirty, Filth”. and his blood cousin Black Milk on “OxyMoron.” With serious features such as this Nametag does more than hold his own he skillfully matches bar for bar & makes his presence felt. He also enlisted the lyrical prowess of his younger cousin and fellow up and coming Detroit artist M.A.H.D on the songs “Notchos” & one of the first singles from the album titled “HookLess”, where these two effortless assault the beat with viscous lyrical punches essentially letting other artist in the game know that they are hear to make a statement. He lastly called on young Detroit Vocalist Chell to help lay the smooth melodies over the “Teacher”  where Nametag gives a deep introspective tale of loosing his mother to breast cancer and his trained relationship with his father who battles drug addiction, ultimately resulting in a deep heartfelt song that is sure to touch the souls of those who listen.

Overall this project is highly refreshing, innovative, and is a much needed fresh change of pace to true fans of Great Hip Hop Music that is sure to easily  become and instant favorite with many listeners as it has to me.

“I F***ED Chris Bosh Wife!” Lil Wayne, BANNED from NBA.

Lil-Wayne-Wanted

“F**k LeBron, F**K She Wade, & F**K Chris Bosh…….Oh Yeah and I F**ked Chris Bosh Wife”  So Lil Wayne has OFFICIALLY lost his damn mind and this video is PROOF that prolonged drug use fries any shred of common sense in the human psyche. This dude has LITERALLY LOST IT, and in my personal opinion crossed a line that didn’t need to be crossed. This video is….well you just have to see it for yourself and judge accordingly. Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the words of Weezy F. Baby!!!

Hostess snack company…NOT going out of buinsess just yet!!!

As I am sure most of you have heard the recent news that the maker of one of America’s most beloved snack treats, Hostess, announced Friday that it was going out of business due to an ongoing labor strike that stemmed from negotiation breakdowns between Hostess and it’s labor unions.Hostess announced that with it’s workforce of over 18,500 employees being on strike that it simply could not operate and since talks were going no where  the snack maker filed bankruptcy, and chose to liquidate all of its assets rather the go through the bankruptcy process and try to salvage the company. When news of the snack makers impending closure thousands upon thousands of Americas flocked to stores, grocers, gas stations and vending machines alike attempting to stock pile these Delicious confectionery treats and savor a tasty piece of American History.  Also, shortly after the company announced it’s plan to liquidate, talks resumed between Hostess and the Teamsters labor union. However, the bakers union was unwilling to budge on its position and did not accept any deals that were in place, so the company was forced to move forward with Liquidation.

HOWEVER, in a surprise announcement today a bankruptcy court judged ordered the two sides to sit back down at the mediation table and at least attempt to come to some type of agreement to not only save the 18,oo0+ jobs, but to also save a company that has been an American Classic for over 83 years. Hopefully the two sides can soon come to some type of agreement and save the jobs of so many employees and help keep the American economy from getting any worse. Now in my personal opinion i n o longer indulge in hostess snack cakes because i choose to life a healthier life style, but I do not see a problem in having Twinkie every now and again because let’s be honest…TWINKIES ARE  PRETTY AWESOME LOL not to mention I would hate to see so many thousands of Americans out of work. Below is an article form the New York times that describes the events in a little more detail.
