MUST HAVE FLASH DRIVES .:May 22 09:.
Flash drives are the most useful gadgets ever. Why not design them just as fresh. These are nice, but knowing me, I'd probably end up breaking or losing them. I don't know where you can get these...google it suckers....happy hunting.
BIG UP! .:May 20 09:.

RECORD REVIEW: DJ DAY - THE DAY BEFORE .:May 18 09:.
Once again my boy IX hits us with
another guest record review. This time it's for one of the crew's
favorite producers, DJ Day. Peace.
How many times have you been able to go through a whole album without skipping a track because it was too good? Probably not many. DJ Day's The Day Before: The Backcatalogue 1999-2007 takes precedence as a personal favorite of all-time. It's mostly just beats that came off of singles, remixes, and exclusives on wax throughout DJ Day's years as a producer, but this is not your typical compilation of beats - this is literally a melting pot of funk genre greatness. From its first track, Four Hills, praised by record collector Gilles Peterson, to its last calming track of Make You, the album plays through like a perfect day of sunrise to sunset. His sound spectrum borders from chill to serious and he was able to blend them all seamlessly. On top of all that, add in an unreleased track with Aloe Blacc on Closer and you've got yourself a must-have. If the sunlight from this album doesn't wake you up, then you've been sleepin' too long.
HGB SAMPLER 2009 .:May 18 09:.
The new HGB Music Sampler is out. If you are in Hawaii (Oahu) in late
May and happen to know about the hip hop festival, hit up the Armory
booth and holler at JABAone, he should have some. Also get one free
with any order at www.freshcrate.com. Big ups to Existence76 and
Dopeshoes for putting it together.
