  1. Come on, man. Enjoy it. You've got six posts with negativity, life is too beautiful for that. I'll also point out that those artists he has collaborated with in the past were not of his era either, with the exception of Biz or Slick Rick and a handful of others. He's collaborated with people outside his norm throughout his career and I can't complain about this choice and the messege. Let Will be... different. Dope track.
  2. This and new De La in the same day? Fantastic!
  3. I posted about this a while back. It's actually an article from volume 2 (which at the time you could order from Jazzy's site autographed, though unfortunately i'd already preordered it.) I definitely recommend picking up both book, there filled with these types of articles for a **** ton of classic hip hop albums.
  4. This was sad news for sure. I was lucky enough to drive to New Orleans and see him perform back in 09(I think). He sat the whole time but was still captivating.
  5. Looks like they showed up this week too, this time shows the beginning of their partnership. http://boingboing.net/2015/05/05/the-fresh-prince-meets-dj-jazz.html
  6. ​While you can read all the pages on that sight (It's updated every week) I recommend picking up the trades. I have the first two and there pretty cool, they're printed on that old comic style paper and are over sized so they're pretty big. The two trades cover 1975 to 1983.

  8. Awesome! That was funny, and it's nice to see it happen publicly, maybe it'll put more pressure on him. I like that Kimmel asked a questions I've always wondered about, basically why hasn't he ever really been featured on other musicians music. Its a bit of a tragedy that he isn't.
  9. I gotta agree with AJ here. I'm a fan of LL and Ice Cube but both have been inconsistent with there music the last few years. Effectively you can't water a plant whenever you feel like it. When you go away on a trip and come back to water that plant it's not the same. If you leave your craft and come back, you come back to where you left off, so there's very limited growth. When you look at artists who've stuck to there craft with their entire focus you see growth, you see artists that have gotten better as they've aged (I.E. De La, Pharoahe Monch). That being said, it sounds as if Will has ne
  10. Thankfully we're still getting peppered with new music.
  11. Here is an excerpt from the book: http://www.esquire.com/blogs/culture/parents-just-dont-understand-oral-history-will-smith?src=spr_TWITTER&spr_id=1456_108698541
  12. It's filled with a lot of stuff for hip-hop fans for sure. I love when talking about filming Parents just Don't understand, Carli called Russell Simmons and told him that Will was going to be bigger then Eddie Murphy and then Russell Simmons replied with "Well, he may be Malcolm Jamal-Warner but he ain't no Eddie Murphy."
  13. I pre-ordered Brian Coleman's Check the Technique Vol 2 and it was on my doorstep Monday when I got back from visiting my parents. I have the first volume and I ordered this one for two reasons. The first being the sample chapter they posted with 3rd Bass and their Cactus Album. The second because I looked at the chapter listing and I saw He's the DJ, I'm the Rappper--Clearly that's an automatic credit card choice right there. It was worth it for sure. Unfortunately there was no sign of Will (but as fan's I think we're accustomed to his minute involvement in all things hip-hop) but all th
