11:39 Sunday night 10/12/08, at the pad surfin the net and thinking, "I gotta jump on top of this weeks write up for ThugLifeArmy". Today is a good day. I mean a good night. ok.
Whats good this week? Everything regardless of the economy because if you are reading this, you still livin, huh? Been speaking with a few people that I may have interviews on; but only with around 5 questions. Something totally away from what you would expect the questions to be. We will have a few comin in the future.
Spoke to legendary hip hop artist Squeak Ru, my other half of allfrumtha i and he wanted me to let you know his new solo cd is in stores titled ‘Fatworld’ on Universal. Hot record. I was actually the one telling him to drop the record just the way it is. He got a banger on there with hip hop icon Ice Cube, so check it out. Peace to his manager Boo as well. They puttin in hard work.
Been surfin a new Inglewood High School website for everybody that went to Inglewood High and it is exclusive only. Set up like myspace. You have to be invited from another person that went there. I thought it was bangin because you can contact cats like me, Short Khop, Lou Ski (from Soul Train back in the day), Squeak, Luv from the Road Dawgs and I hear a few others are comin. We missin Mack 10, Paul Pierce and Harold Minor and a lot of others, but I am sure they comin. I don’t know if Damani is on there, I forgot to check, but I will. 211, where you at? Shout out to Ashanti Hands for creating the site.
Speakin of One-O (Mack 10), we was hollarin the other day while drivin down the street in the valley here in Los Angeles. I aint seen Mack in a while, and in most cases like that, we stop and holler for a minute. I was in the passenger seat with Don Doe and we was yellin out the window. I had to cut it short because I had someone waiting for us at the mall and me and DonDoe was already 30 minutes late. Maybe we can get Mack on here soon to finish the convo. Talk about his song with gospel rapper T-Bone and his song "Testimony", Schmell that !
Yaw make sure to go out to vote in November, ya heard me? If things get rigged (political vote jackin) like in the past, I will inform you on it. Trust me. What up young W? Yaw seen that movie? Not me...
I still keep up with the rap game on occasions and lookin forward to a few young hip hop and rap artist to come out. Glasses Malone, 211, Damani solo cd and Bishop Lamont as well as Focus. I like the fact that these artist don''t sound typical and that being said, there could be an upset by the new west come 2009. I really believe that so you gettin it hear first. I feel the playing field needs to be evened out a lil. I listen to gospel hip hop too and will be introducing them guys to yaw right here as well. It's goin down, so follow ship. (Old school sayin!)
I get info from the web on the hip hop and rap game because if I listen to the radio, you gotta listen to the same stuff over & over. So I am an internet man and I advise everybody else to come over. In a minute, you may not need a TV. We headin that way. The only use for a TV. will be a dummy being controlled by a computer.
Yaw go out and get my girls from Mary Mary's new cd ***The Sound*** comin out on October 21st. They gospel, hip hop and always give you some of that westcoast sound thanks to Warren "Baby Dubb" Campbell on the beats. I am gonna see if we can talk to Warren as well. He had a nice single on Snoop a few cd's ago. My man is dope with the music and arrangements. But I love his gospel stuff. Bangin.
Last and before I go... Rappers, give us somethin of substance in the music, huh ? We know how to do all the other stuff we been talkin about for years. I am from the NWA tree and we did that. Give us somethin to bang so our grandmothers and mothers can bump it along with the kids. Is that possible? Bad economy + good music = a smile on folks faces... Now that's GANGSTA !!!!!
