"CM Punk Georgia Funk" may have saved my music career.
After going through a tumultuous summer, I had released Spideyville Unlimited and was ready to call it day musically. If it wasn't for this and "If Tomorrow", SYU doesn't happen.
The true inspiration behind this track was not just my wanting to rap over Jay and 'Ye's "Otis" instrumental. Fellow MC An0maly actually released his version of "Otis" and in the spirit of competition, I made one as well.
I tried to tweet it to Punk several times but he ignored me. His loss I suppose.
I spend a lot of time in these columns groveling at the Creative team’s feet when something I’ve hated for months (years?) makes me a do a 180. But yet again, they’ve managed to do it.
They’ve made me care about Brock Lesnar.

So I'm very early into my client Kelen Conley's My Player career on NBA 2K11, and there's been some bumps in the road but things are looking up. Against the Golden State Warriors, he exploded for a game (and career high) 33 points. When the Lakers came to town, he scored 24 more points while taking turns guarding Kobe, Artest, Odom, and Derek Fisher. And he had a huge block on Kobe in the final minutes that sealed the win over the defending champs.
He heads to Philadelphia next, as the Bucks try to get back to .500.
Brandon Jennings frustrates the hell out of me. I set picks for him constantly and he's still forcing up terrible shots. And he won't pass the ball when he gets in the lane with two guys on him. I was having trouble with Andrew Bogut too but he's picked it up nicely.
Our rebounding against the better teams is infuriating.
I'm still coming off the bench behind Michael Redd, who's barely getting any playing time once I'm in. Hopefully I'll be starting once we get through the road trip.

The Roots and Mr. Mef recreated the Wu-Tang classic "Protect Ya Neck" with Black Thought handling every verse other than Meth's and ODB's. Just another case of how criminally underrated Thought is. At least he has a consistent paycheck.

Someday, I'd like to direct a film.
Until then, I have my YouTube channel. Mostly, it's filled with music, but there are some older live performances on there. I'm really trying to think of different content to add to it, as seen with my Hostess Pie video, so there should be a variety of things in the near future.

Today's Catalog Friday comes from 2012 by way of 2011's #28YearsLater series. Inspired by weekly projects such as GOOD Fridays and Freeway's Month Of Madness, I decided that in order to celebrate my 28th year on this planet, I would be releasing new songs throughout the year.
I wrote this verse for a collaboration with Beanz over the Diddy - Dirty Money track "Hello Good Morning (Remix)" but we didn't end up linking up in time for me to make his version. With 4 of the #28YearsLater tracks I wrote still unrecorded in 2012, I recorded them all in one day and released them as #28YearsLater Leftovers. I later included it in my Blood, Sweat & Tears: I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know collection.
For some reason, this is my video with the most views on my YouTube channel. Probably because I named it after a line in the song and a character from The Wire, Bodie Broadus.
