  9. BLACKSTAR - thieves in the night totally got that right away hahaha hip hop legend's newest cd. first verse on the song. Sent you a message, sent you an email Hasty decisions we may still prevail Both needed breaks, we both needed to bail Walking thru the corridors of my mind The hideaways and nooks, and things with good times Memories certainly yes they still bind Still a common man and yeah that's for sure Still a bankroll and yeah still couture But man this thing we had was much more Come back home, don't be out in the world It's a rat race and no place for a girl Amongst the scavengers, have found a pretty pearl It's for the faint of heart who never get enough Gotta get tough, buckle em up, we calling guts And we, and we and we ahhh i was going to do an aesop rock song but i figured nobody would know it. this one should be decently easy.
  10. Life's a Bitch - Nas we should add some general hints like -verse of the song -the "number" album from that artist -general year reference. (((this is the fourth verse from the song. from the second cd from the rappers albums. mid nineties))) Got stopped at the mall the other day Heard a call from the other way that I just came from, some nigga was sayin somethin talkin bout "Hey man, you remember me from school?" smoke some, naw not really but he kept smilin like a clown facial expression lookin silly And he kept askin me, what kind of car you drive, I know you paid I know y'all got buku of hoes from all them songs that y'all done made And I replied that I had been goin through tha same thing that he had True I got more fans than the average man but not enough loot to last me to the end of the week, I live by the beat like you live check to check If you don't move yo' feet then I don't eat, so we like neck to neck Yes we done come a long way like them Slim ass cigarettes from Virginia, this ain't gon stop so we just gonna continue
  11. this all happened. in case you thought it was some fictional thing i made up. (in response to your response)
  12. HERE IS A BLOG I DID>> Music Buisness Panel 101 written by mike petrow - 12/11/08 So its 1:43 in the AM. this music buisness panel happened technically yesterday, it was at about 10. So, lemme explain. the 6th element (hip hop club at Hofstra) set up a panel of radio DJs to come and talk about the music buisness and answer questions. there was DJ GeeSpin and DJ Whutevva from 105.1, Cipha Sounds from Hot97 and, DJ Chuck Chillout from 98.7. There was also another guy who isnt on this poster and i dont remember his name. He worked with Michael Jackson and other awesome acts. If you are reading thing, i greatly apologize for not knowing your name. so this panel is going smooth, the first cool thing tha happens is Chuck Chillout asks how many hip hop artists there are in the audience and many people, including myself, raise their hand. I was in the front row, rocking a suite and tie. So when i raised my hand, my whiteness had to have stood out becuase Chuck pointed right at me and goes "you rap?" i reply, "yes" he says whats your rap name and i said "mike Petrow" then he goes "aw man. Mike Petrow, Mike Petrow, Mike Petrow, i like that, Mike Petrow." so right away im glowing at how cool that is. second cool thing. now we are back into questions and one girl asks a question about singing artists opposed to rappers. i belive it was GeeSpin, maybe Chuck who was responding but he asked her if she was a singer and she said yes. so he asks her to sing. she didnt seem to into it and then everybody started clapping and she was peer pressured into it. not bad at all, she sang come rain or shine, a traditional song i believe. which was ironic becuase i sampled Sinatras version of it. so after she sits down, whoever asked her to sing asked if there were any rappers in the room. i look around. not one hand. where were all the people who raised their hands before? wimps. so my hand shoots up and Chuck points at me once again, "give this kid a mic." and then i rock the first 8 lines from Taking Time. during it i hear honest chuckles from some lines and perhaps a "oohh" or two. but that cause be wishful thinking. so i finish and i get an applause and sit down. then Chuck looks at me gives me a thumbs up and says that took guts. pimp. Last cool thing was handing out my mixtapes. i gave one to GeeSpin, one to Chuck, who learned that Mike Petrow was my actual name and thought it was dope. then one to the 5th panel member who i cant remember his name (sorry again) and he asked me if my number was in the case. which i took for a good thing. then i gave it to some guy who had a card with def jam on it and apparently he runs a studio somewhere close..i think. but he asked if i was a producer and said that they needed producers. sick. i want to say that he said he was going to check mine out first but that could have been my imagination. so thats all the cool things. i mean these two girls who just got signed rapped.. they sucked in my mind. one was like a girl version of me, awkward and lanky. except she moved alot more, making it even weirder. and in the crowd was also producers who made g-unit and 50 cent beats and two reps from def jam.. i wonder if that is who i gave my cd to. anyway it was a very exciting evening. afterwards i went to a formal dance and after that i watched spaceballs. which then leads me to now. if there was one thing i learned at the panel was take any chance you get and go hard. everybody starts at the bottom and in order to get anywhere you gotta "eat **** and sleep it". knock on wood -mike petrow
  13. is this a record for amount of nominations for rap artist? cause it seems like alot. lupe definatly should have gotten the 8 instead. im pulling for nas and lupe this time around.
  14. doesnt even sound like a kanye beat. im sure its just this phase he is going through. im hopin he will get back to the roots that he had in classic beats like his blueprint and college dropout beats.
  15. i love the break "nothin you can do" i dont like this new common as much as Be but hey, its 100% better than any other sht out there
  16. quality is very good. the intro track sounds like an intro track, im liking the vibe and quality. its a differnt genre from what i prefer but its good none the less. skits alright haha. dude seems cool. nice addition.
  17. i havent heard the album yet but my friend had it in ihs car and some song was playing and i liked it alot. besides that, coldest winter is an incredible song to me. i listen to it in chunks. like on repeat 10 times each time i click it. but then again i can respect experimentation alot more, at first i was totally against kanyes new album but im starting to lean towards it.
  18. sick beat and sick flow/lyrics. good combo. constructive critisism? i would say a little more passion in your voice can go a long way. im faulty to that as well. keep it up, you got a lot going for you.
  19. we all knew it but to actually see him say it is kinda just like .. wow. i hope he gets an oscar.. i think this part of his life is just trying to prove himself as an actor to the academy not the average fan. as in like, he isnt trying to make blockbusters you know? but yeah, i would like a jjfp reunion but its not happening, or at least not ANYtime soon.
  20. i agree, i mean he has his connections with the lesser known hip hop artists. i was listening to college dropout the other day and i forgot that get em high had kweli AND common on it. crazy. if he got more of these conscious rap giants out there hip hop could change. if anyting he is the gateway for that.
