[Video Proof] Lebron James tells D Wade they may reunite next year

 

“Like I said, if we aren’t better this year, we’re gonna reunite again and do some bigger and better things, alright? You already know.” - Lebron James to Dwyane Wade after Christmas Day loss




The knee jerk reaction to this comment is that Lebron James may leave Cleveland after this year if they do not do as well as he expected. The salary cap goes up next year and positions "King James" for another record payday. What if this isn't what we think it is though? What if Dwyane Wade were the one to come to Cleveland or what if they both went somewhere completely different? After this season, Wade would be in the second year of a a two-year, $31.1 million deal with a player option for the second year. It's feasible but don't count on it. Most likely, Lebron James will go down in history as the greatest journeyman ever.

President Obama Honors Robin Williams

 

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.

 I like to remember him like this :)

Record builds up and brings together Denton’s diverse hip-hop scene

 


 

Record builds up and brings together Denton’s diverse hip-hop scene



Published: 07 August 2014 12:51 PM

Keldrick Scott doesn’t claim to be a rapper.

The Denton High School alumnus doesn’t count himself among the city’s many musicians.

The CEO of the newly minted Denton label Gitmo said he just had a vision and some hustle.

“I can’t rap. I can’t sing. I can’t produce,” Scott said. “My concept was breaking barriers and building bonds. I know all these artists and I know their music. There was a lot of division in the Denton rap scene. A lot of people on the scene wanted to work with certain people. I wanted to get people to work with people they’d never worked with. And I wanted to get people to work with producers they’d never worked with.”

It turns out that Scott either has good instincts or missed a calling in politics.

Gitmo’s debut release, Breakin’ Barriers: Buildin’ Bonds, is a strapping record of intentional hip-hop made by young men (and women) who crave precise verse and integrity. There’s no big pimping or fake stunting, just fiery upstart artists who can turn their less-than-glamorous hustle into the kind of conviction that shows you the riches through their rags.

Scott said he framed the project as a favor at first, but paid for talent and studio time, too. Three partners financed the record, and Scott said the project took 11 months in part because they were paying $60 for a beat, $100 for mixing services and more for studio time.

“We did the first song, and let me tell you, Facebook is amazing,” Scott said. “Once we started to do tracks, the artists started talking about it on Facebook and people started showing up.”
Scott didn’t divulge any rivalries, but said Breakin’ Barriers did just that.

“When we started, there were some artists who didn’t like each other, who had a history of threatening each other,” he said.

Scott said his concept was to avoid making a mix tape.

“They didn’t submit songs,” he said. “If you wanted to be on a track, you had to show up. We’d all meet. I’d be like, ‘You want to make a song? We’re meeting up.’ The artists talked about their ideas. They’d write a few bars and another artist would say, ‘Try this.’ If it was good enough, they got on the track. If it wasn’t, they didn’t. But they could keep trying. None of them wanted to be the weakest guy on the track. Hip-hop guys are good followers.”

Scott recruited accomplished local producers to build the music: Izzy “The Kid,” Shagg, Apollo Bangz, TLit, Digo, Ritchy Flo, Trae “THEEEE” Hitmakah, Quicksaand and Stu Brootal.

Scott said they made 36 songs and put 19 on the record, plus an intro. The rappers take turns proclaiming their primacy on the local scene (“The Last Supper,” “Loyalty and Respect” and “Ball in My Zone”) and take a few breaks to suspend the jockeying for old-school feel-good numbers ( “Light Up a Blunt,” “Pour It Out” and “One of a Kind”).

The record is a sampler of Denton’s old guard hip-hop — with Pudge of Fab Deuce, Stu Brootal and Ernie McCrackin’ writing bulletproof bars. Southeast Denton gets good representation on the record, with the likes of more hardcore rap from Smitty and Whoa seasoning the record with old-school chest thumping.

AV the Great teases listeners with gold-standard bars, but doesn’t eclipse his peers. You end up wanting more of Denton’s hip-hop golden child, but AV was understandably reserving energy for his third album due out at the end of the month. Likewise for Wreckamic, a guy with impeccable flow and writing chops. Rising Denton hip-hop artist Wild Bill’s poetry and pinpoint meta-cultural references are as sharp as ever.

Breakin’ Barriers brings a diverse crew together, but the roundtable construction of the record makes for a cohesive product.

Scott pays the bills working in home health, but said he’s got a roster of talent signed to Gitmo. He said he feels like the project was a way of making a contribution to a city that set some hopes on him. Scott graduated from Denton High in 1998, and played football on scholarship for the University of Minnesota for a year (“Man, I love the cold,” he said).

“I just woke up one day and didn’t want to do that anymore. I’d been having issues with the coach,” Scott said. “I decided to come home. A lot of people probably think I didn’t do right.”

Gitmo seems poised for a future, even if he’s not making money yet.

“There are 20 more rappers who want to be on the next one,” Scott said.
Breakin’ Barriers will be available on iTunes and at Recycled Books Records CDs.

“There’s unity in the scene now,” Scott said. “Maybe not all the issues got settled, but they at least got set aside.”

TRACK BY TRACK

Various artists, Breakin’ Barriers: Buildin’ Bonds

“Last Supper” — This trick delivers Denton’s hip-hop strong suits. Ritchy Flo deals a full house of winning beats, a rhythm anchored by a chime-like, pendulum swing of a beat. Flo adds in a twitchy electro rattle and blunted bumping drumbeat. Flo’s beat inspires a triumvirate of young flowmasters Wild Bill, Buk Baby and Masa Lopez. Wild Bill claims his space with confidence, asking, “What’s your bread count?” Buk Baby goes on a tear of first-rate verse, working the metaphor over for all he can (“you trying to get a slice, we going for the loaf”), then passes the baton to Lopez.

“Pocket Full of Knots” — Pudge opens the track with tricky rapid-fire rhyme about the life of a rapper who isn’t rolling in cash, but isn’t low on grind, either. Stu Brootal eases through the speed-round without a hitch, letting LOC and Duke pack heat with more aggressive rhyming. King Pap doesn’t disappoint, ticking off the hard work it takes to be in the game: early mornings, naysayers, lackluster props from name-droppers. If this is hip-hop by committee, it’s an example of how to punch the clock proper.

“One of a Kind” — You know how Big Boi seems to make melodies without breaking a sweat? If there’s one thing Breakin’ Barriers lacks, it’s singing. Close to the end of the record, Rockbaby, Buk Baby and LOC break off some sweet, soulful singing. The trio takes a page out of a slambook by Prince and Andre 3000, laying down some lazy falsetto (you can nearly see them lounging through a blunt-fueled haze) between the bars of boss rhyme.

Justin Bieber Needs To Go Away Forever

 

I'm a white guy that just turned 30. I grew up immersed in hip hop culture. I have worked with gold and platinum producers as well as artists. I have a unique perspective on culture, race, gender, etc. I make distinctions between those that are genuine, wannabes and those who exploit other cultures for their own gain. In my opinion, Justin Bieber represents the latter. Yes he's very young and yes he was much younger when he recorded this video singing about killing n*ggers and joining the Ku Klux Klan, he's still just a punk ass white boy in my opinion. He's not someone I would have wanted to be friends with or hang out with at that age or at any age since then. He's an entitled punk and after seeing this video, it's cemented.

Open Letter To Parents

 

Parents,
PLEASE do not allow your children to stay attached to their phone all day. Set limitations. Restrict their usage until they've shown they are responsible and can be trusted. Too many young children are allowed to have unrestricted access to calls, texts, Internet, pic sharing, etc to the point where their phone is the center of their lives. Children have no real perspective. It is not fair to them OR the educators you send them to 23 days out of the month! The more parents allow their children to totally engross themselves in social media/texting, the less emphasis there is on education, respectful behavior and team building. I see a trend of self centered, entitled, tunnel-vision having teens that are really looking for a connection. When I was being raised by my mother, there were limitations on television, phone time, play time, etc. I wasn't even allowed to isolate myself in my room all day. Don't just BE a parent. Parent!

A Phone Isn't A Phone

 

A cellphone isn't even a phone anymore. It's an unfettered portal to instant gratification. It's a constant distraction from living in the moment. People can't enjoy simple moments anymore it seems without the snap a picture or a tweet about it. Thinks about "live-tweeting" shows like Breaking Bad or Scandal for example. Instead of watching the hottest tv show out, people are mini blogging about it in almost real time. TV used to be THE ultimate distraction. Mobile devices, as they are now called, are quite often the hub of popularity for teens. This generation's self esteem is a reflection of likes on their Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook pages. That is what makes them cool these days. I look around at restaurants, on the road while driving, walking through the mall... you name it and people are on their phone. There are distracted walking campaigns because of cellphone use. Our phones are so important to us nowadays but phone isn't a phone anymore though. Who even talks on the phone now?
