I Acquired Art: Squared Circle of the Universe @errdaytrapqueen

I was browsing through The 'Gram (can I call Instagram that or no?) the other day and I saw this piece of artwork come across my feed that was made by my old U92 friend Nicole.

Knowing that it must be mine, I asked how much she would want for it if she was willing to sell it. She initially offered it up for free for Aaliyah but I don't think Angel would like a wrestling ring in the middle of our under the sea nursery. After some haggling (on her part, lol) she told me I could have it for free anyway.

She spent 2+ hours on it and still refused money when I met her to get it but as you can see, it's f****** beautiful. If this came out this well, I can only imagine what other pieces she has stashed around her house.

Thanks again Nicole!

Podcasts @ BHYPHEN.COM

I finished redesigning the Podcasts section of the site last week. Every podcast that I'm involved with is here now and well as my guest appearances on other podcast.
  • Hip-Hop Manifesto - Hosted with Matthew "Chivalry" Spencer. Chiv and I take on random topics in the world of hip-hop.
  • Hyphen Nation - A potpourri type show that covers whatever I feel like talking about. All my Victory Jumpoff Radio and Two Webshooters & A Microphone episode are housed here as well.
  • Trike Adventures - Hosted with Anthony Sellers and Thomas Crawford. A roundtable podcast, I (try to) moderate by bringing various topics to talk about, but most of the time everyone makes fun of me. NSFW.
  • The Slobberknocker Chronicles - Hosted with Thomas Crawford. A wrestling podcast, Thomas and I discuss the current state of affairs in the WWE.
  • Moves Like Curtis: The Podcast - Hosted by Thomas Deja. Rising from Tom's Moves Like Curtis column, this is a NFL podcast covering the latest in league events.
  • Nocturne Travel Agency Podcast - Hosted by Thomas Deja. Tom sits down with a great collection of authors and gets to the nitty gritty of what makes them tick.
  • Mollyfog The Music - Hosted with Thomas Deja. Tom and I give each other 3 songs to listen to and we record our thoughts here. And talk about women. Episodes 1 and 2 coming soon.
  • Guest Appearances - Every trackable appearance I've made on other podcasts.

My Week On Reddit: 7/28/14

The moon landing conspiracy! Jeff Bridges! Sounds you don't hear anymore! Elementary school cool! And more!

Song Of The Moment: J. Cole - Is She Gon Pop

I've been bumping J. Cole's Born Sinner consistently since last June. I really didn't give Truly Yours 3 any burn until recently, when my iPod adapter for my car died again. I think any of the five Truly Yours 3 tracks could have made the official album, but this one right here is TRULY special. See what I did there?

Undiscovered Country: Ground Up - Let's Ride

Another gem from my listening session with E, this one comes from Philly's Ground Up. It should be on every radio station around because it's definitely a summer banger for sure. Get the single from iTunes.

Undiscovered Country: Mike Farrock Millz - Million Little Diamonds

I went to E's for the first time in a month and he was going through some new music he had been sent. This was one of the emails.

This song is featured on his album M3.

The Dime Session 7/25/14

In this 'Session: a new Kanye interview, Mark Bousquet's (unfinished!) trip to Martha's Vineyard, a bunch of romantic comedy pieces, Batman moves into Gotham City, and of course, more!

Catalog Friday - B Hyphen - Ain't Right

FINALLY. New Catalog Friday.

In between Thunderstorm and volume Three, my friend Billy Privitera was sending me underground beats as an alternative from the usual mainstream instrumentals I would use. Out of the handful he sent me, Diverse's "Ain't Right", produced by RJD2, was the only one that grabbed me.

I feel like I say this about most of my songs, but I dig the hell out of this one (I think I dig the songs that no one mentions the most though). Bonus points for the Obama mention in 2007. I credit Chiv for the awareness though.
