Some quick links before I get down to business:
The first 2 reviews of Nico’s Dinner is Served are up. First up is Poisonous Paragraphs who claims the mixtape is an “east coast overdose if you will.” Scroll down–it’s right after the Lilly Allen review.
Next up is 33jones, who loves the new genre that Nico created: “South Philly Rap.” No Stevie B or Lil’ Suzy is on the mixtape though, so that distinction isn’t 100% correct (thank heavens). Check out the review which has free MP3s and footage from the release party.
Finally, the authority on all things Douche, Douche McWilliams Worldwide, says if you don’t like this mixtape, you must be a…douche.
In non-Nico news, Aaron from MetalLungies.com drops the 10 Greatest M.O.P. Couplets at the Passion of the Weiss. My favorite Mash Out Posse bars that didn’t make the list? You guessed it:
“So keep your gun breezed for f*ckin with these New York Desperadoes
We’ll bust open your head like avocadoes”–Lil Fame “Stick To Ya Gunz”
I’ve been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to write for Foundation Magazine, a Philly-based hip hop print specializing in mixtapes. You might remember them for interviewing Lil’ Wayne when he said “Fuck DJ’s.”
I’ve been given a slot to essentially write about whatever the hell I want, hip hop related or not. If you have ever read Foundation Mag, what would you like to see in there that is not being covered? Should I talk about chicks that piss me off? Phife Dawg lyrics that are borderline great and nonsensical at the same time? How 50 vs. Rick Ross is essentially Bush vs. Kerry?
You let me know, party people.
