Cali Trip: "The Photo Experience"

Not too much to say, certain memories are hard to vocalize/type out. 5 short days is not enough. No need to summarize this trip, but if I had to put it in two words - Outdoors + Homegrown. And chicken wings, cant forget those. I'm going back ASAP.


OG Tuesdays, The Premier

So, we decided to start blessin ya'll with some classic and obscure gangster og shit. Not limiting ourselves to strictly the west, we got some midwest and southern cuts to get your mind right. 40's and blunts type material right here ya know. To get it started right, C-Sick hooked up a quick little mix. Some gems from Easy E, MC Breed, DFC, Spice 1, and Whodini. Holler at us if you enjoy or have any requests.

Props on the MS Paint Photoshopping skillz


When Electro Goes Too Far......

He he he. As much as I can get down with Kraftwerk, Herbie, and Freakazoid, this clip just ain't right without some Cosmic Raindance, Push The Button, or Shari Vari.

They would have killed it to this!!!


This One Is For Dilla, Hip Hop

Go get this. All I gotta say. Madlib, Oh No, Kareem Riggins, 9th Wonder, Bilal production. What are you waiting for??

Unsigned Hype

Professor Germ and Digital V - the illest collabo you never heard of. In this industry, its becoming harder and harder for obscure, underground acts to stay fresh, real and not sell out. Yet somehow, NYC bred duo PGnDV managed to do just that. C2D catches up with them to find out whats what.
Professor Germ - represents Jersey Shore. Surfer boy at heart, world traveler at mind, Daoist by day, borrows from many walks of life for his inspiration. Catch him listening to the latest of Williamsburg hipster shit one day, screaming out "Killuminati!" the next.
Digital V - the Eastern European sensation. Born in Russia, street hardened on blocks of Brooklyn - a complex mix of a character. One thing for certain, his wild swagger and wicked delivery will keep you up at night.
Best known for their breakout single "The Deli Song" of their freshman album "Sex" and the club banga "Out to Eat" co-produced by their main man Vico Deini from their "Our Love for Daughters" LP, PGnDV stay in the lab. As these two are busting out their 3rd album, no genre is sacred, no chord is left untouched.
C2D: How would you describe your style?
Digital V: We try to touch many places. Psychedelic, psychotic, rhythmic, illmatic, melodic, bluesy wild ass type bongs. Freaky. Our sound is freaky. Hiphop, rock and roll, raggae, death metal, punk - anything. Talent dont grow on trees, its in the roots, and we're the motherfuckin nutrients of this music shit.
C2D: The two of you, established solo acts, came together for this project, how did this come about?
Professor Germ: Well, not gonna beat around the bush, we were getting twisted out, binging on all sorts of shit for like a month straight few summers ago, chillin in V Diggaz L.E.S. studio, when we decided to lay down a cover of Bill Withers "Aint No Sunshine", next came "The Deli" track. This music came from necessity, not boredom. It came from hunger.
C2D: Thats cool, thats cool. So whats comming up for you two?

Digital V: Ayo, can i say this one, can i say this one? Right now, i fell like PGnDV aint getting the respect they deserve, but believe you me, soon enough we gonna beat Soulja Boy on that ringtown download record he got. You aint seen nothing yet.
C2D: Any shoutouts to the fans and to the haters?
Professor Germ: Just wanna say wussup to all my people in Fairfield NJ, you know who you are.... mom, dad.
Digital V: wanna give props to my fam, PG, Vico Deine for them ill beats, PBR and any other cheap shit, them delivery services for ringin my doorbell with that sticky. To the haters - who's your A&R? A mountain climber who plays an electric guitar? Fuck yall. PGnDV out, keep your ears open.

Currently finishing off their 3rd LP, these monsters are still unsigned, surely not for long. Peep them at their MySpace page

Ya Better Have The Riot Gear Ready....

dead prez show ends in a riot

Is anyone really surprised? Hell, I think I even tried to start a riot at a dead prez show. If only I was as successful as these kids at Evergreen State College in Washington. Maybe it was the amount of anarchists in the building, or while the police were arresting someone from the audience maybe it was M1 and Stic's rendition of Fuck the Police that got everyone going. Regardless, it looks like they did some damage, and turned over a cop car, and a stolen police laptop, and a radar gun. Those crazy kids. Man I miss those days.

Memoirs of Flint Michigan pt 2

More excerpts from working in Flint some years ago:

"Yeah, I really didn't think it was gonna get much worse, but boy was I mistaken. With "Tony" filling me in on electrical knowledge like with installing plugs..

him: "Alright now, whats the colors of a black trans am?"
me: " uh.....I don't know."
him: " you know, black with the big gold bird on the hood"
me: "oh yeah, that trans am" (acting like i'm down)
him: "yeah well remember the black wires go with the gold clips."

Between learning aids like that and the constant "whoa did you see the tits on that one" while we drive to get parts or "it should be illegal for girls that young to wear clothes like that." He is quite the classy fellow. Later I meet D. I don't know his real name but he is the owner's son and just like the turtle-faced senior, this guy is a character. This guy has quite the slick mullet, with the half and half consistency of grease and gel, slick back on top, with shiny curls folding down to the base of his neck. Its a real site of beauty. He heard Tony was in the hospital a few weeks ago and D assumed it was the ol " stickin that dick in some nasty pussy." Tony explained it was called Diverticulitus and its from not eating right, immediately followed by D's "oh, you been divin in that nasty pussy etc etc...." I don't really have to on. Later he tells Tony (he always talks to Tony, I have worked three times with these guys and he has barely uttered 5 sentances to me, 2 of which were pertaining to masturbating). wait, let me try that sentance again....Later he tells Tony that he beat his old record..what record is that....2 ladys in one hour. Then he explains how, but it doesnt really matter. He cant work without booze and he won't fuck with a condom, and he's got a pension for strippers, hoes, and X. Something tells me that I really don't want to go to their strip club if they like a guy like this. His auto is also a trophy piece. Brownish-gold 80's big Buick with, not a single part of the body without a dent, usually a big dent, and I dont think the passenger door opens. the hood and headlights are held on by ducktape and a coat hanger and the inside is filled with cig butts. He's got a thing for telling the ritzy ladys of Fenton that park next to him "Hey! Don't scratch my car!!" when they pull up in their Audis or Cadillacs. I even find that funny. He sure is sexy."

Memoirs of Flint Michigan pt 1

A few years back I took an NYC hiatus and went back to Flint for a short stay, but due to some legal issues it became a bit longer. I was working construction in the Little Beirut projects and then in some other complex downtown that was a bit Mad Max meets Escape From New York. All the street lights were shot out, it was surrounded by abandoned houses, and full on SWAT raids on the buildings across the street were not uncommon. I wrote the following back then after I punched out.

One of the benefits of working in Michigans toilet (flint), is the wonderful people you get to meet. Tony, his real name is Rolando or Emando or something like that, but because of reasons I will not go into right now he likes to be called Tony. Tony is a regular Flint character, deer hunter,
fisherman, rude, crude dude with a pension for talking about tits and his health problems and how he doesn't seem to like anyone but white people even though he aint. Oh well, the wonders of Flint. So he gets to talkin about his old hair style, commenting on how long my hair is. "I used to have long hair a few years ago, shaved on the sides and short on the top. It grew really long in the back." He then went into details on the maintenance and upkeep of his beautiful mane, and how he couldn't go out in public since the ladies would flock around him everywhere he went and had to touch his plummage. Yeah, I imagine it was a beautiful sight. He is a bit of a paradox, how can anyone who has been in prison listen to so much phil collins???
