Fuck Harvey Levin and anybody that loves his celebrity news website. First you prematurely pronounce the impending death of Lil Wayne (Weezy Forgives. We Don't.) and then you try to link the horrific actions of one of the Boston Marathon culprits to our culture? "DEAD BOMBING SUSPECT: HEAVY INTO HIP HOP" You don't say? It's 2013 and most kids are into rap music. We've been penetrated pop culture, you cock suckers. "What's interesting... hip-hop lyrics are notoriously violent and often degrading to women." So our music is at fault in this tragedy? Let's be clear the only bombs my culture cosigns is DJ Funkmaster Flex's sound effects. Thirty Mile Zone is prone to post anything to get traffic. Fuck dude and his coffee cup. Get you a Rap Radar cup and drink with us in the winner's circle.
You Played Yourself
Yo Mister Cee, the people feel threatened! Soliciting prostitutes is illegal and this is the second time your private affairs have been publicized. Get some help...and a room! —B.Dot

Esco’s It Was Written turned 15 years old back in July. And in a recent interview with XXL, he reflects on his sophomore album.
What was your inspiration for “I Gave You Power?” A Premier beat. Just a beat from Premier… in the studio. Back then I was around a lot more guns and my reality was that. There was no armed security back then, it was just us moving around so that was a lot more in my world.
I remember you had “Silent Murder” on the cassette. What made you put a bonus track on cassette at a time where things were moving to CDs? Well, the cassette still wasn’t dead. They was still sellin’, so we figured, the cassette is what we grew up on. CDs is takin’ over so we need an extra attraction to get people to not buy the CDs, and also try to keep the cassette alive. We needed something to help keep the cassette alive so that’s what we did with Stretch and that was his last works, that was his last works with me. I miss him. I do. I think about him from time to time. Great dude. He was a real good dude.

We really wish people would stop recording vertically! Anyway, the night before last, Common brought out Esco for another live edition of “Ghetto Dreams” at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. The Dreamer/The Believer in stores now.

After dropping “Dog Shit“, P and Hav link up with Esco again for their new track. Black Cocaine EP officially drops Black Friday, so get it here. By the sounds of this, we hope that album is still coming.

Save the music y’all. Below is an explanation of how the track came together.
VIBE recently linked up with DJ Premier, Nas, and the Berklee Symphony Orchestra as a part of their RE:GENERATION project.
