(Video) @50Cent ft. @TonyYayo - ''I Just Wanna''

In Hip Hop once you attain a certain level of success, for whatever reason sometimes the audience that helped you attain that success turns on you. Now speaking for myself, if an artist continues to make the music I enjoy, I'm going to continue to support said artist. Now don't get me wrong, some artists turn into something different once they become successful. In those cases if they changed what I liked, then I'm done with them.

In case of 50? I think a lot of people just got tired of his overly competitive nature & him winning all the time. I don't really get that because Hip Hop is a naturally competitive sport....I will admit a lot of his music from the past couple years been lacking....but this new mixtape is that shit....I don't see how you could deny it...unless you got something personal against him....

(Opinion) Lakers/New Orleans/Chris Paul situation black eye for the NBA

At a time when anticipation and excitement should be about the return of the NBA season & training camps opening today, the focus is instead on the NBA putting a stop to the Lakers/Chris Paul deal. If this deal doesn't go through, there will be a big black cloud (of conspiracy) hanging over the NBA for the rest of the season. Why David Stern would put himself & the league in this situation because of pressure from rival team owners, boggles the mind.

This is a case of big market/small market paranoia gone wrong & an example of why there should never be a league owned team. This was actually a pretty good deal for the Hornets & they would be hard pressed to find a better one. "The proposed trade would have sent Paul to the Lakers, Pau Gasol to the Rockets and furnished New Orleans with three top-flight NBA players in Kevin Martin, Luis Scola and Lamar Odom as well as playoff-tested guard Goran Dragic and a 2012 first-round pick that Houston had acquired from the Knicks." via espn.com. I'm hoping everybody involved comes to their senses & they resolve this debacle asap.


(News) @DwightHoward to ask Orlando Magic for trade to New Jersey Nets

Of all the deals that have been rumored involving Dwight Howard & the Orlando Magic, I thought the New Jersey Nets offer of Brook Lopez and two first-round draft picks was the best one on the table. To go along with that, the Nets are willing to take on Turkoglu's remaining three year, $34 million contract. Today espn.com is reporting "Dwight Howard will ask the Orlando Magic to trade him to the New Jersey Nets, and a deal could go down as soon as Friday, sources close to the situation said.". Read the story here.

(Classic Spotlight) Killah Priest - One Step / Fake MC [Video]

As I stated previously, Killah Priest is one of my top 5 favorite emcees of all time. While Priest isn't your conventional top 5 pick, my reasons have more to do with the substance of his work. Most of his lyrics are based off biblical scripture and I've always been fascinated with ancient texts and civilizations. This is why I've never really considered him as being a part of the Wu, because the content of his music is something completely different.

A great example of this, is his first album entitled "Heavy Mental". If you never had a chance to peep this record, I suggest you find a way to get your hands on it. At times Priest's flow is rough around the edges but his wordplay has always been top quality. Below is one of my favorite cuts off the album, but it's only a small sample of what else is on the album.

(Video) Killah Priest [ @killahpriest ] - ''The Document''

Killah Priest is one of my favorite emcees of all time....in my top 5....yes I said top 5.....


Longtime Wu affiliate Killah Priest is preparing a brand new project, following July's "The 3 Day Theory". Set for January, the LP is titled "The Psychic World Of Walter Reed".

To get fans ready, Priest just released the album's first offering, a cut called "The Document," in which he details the harsh realities of the world -- corruption and suffering at the hands of a handful of powerful men.

In the Rogue Science Lab-directed clip, Priest spits bars as animated depictions of the Pope, George Bush and Barack Obama take part in pay-offs, murder, and underworld evil. From taking part in cult-like rituals from planned out hits to stealing money from the population ... all for "The Document."

"The Psychic World Of Walter Reed" is due out January 30th, 2012. Visit KillahPriest.com for more info.
