Shoot for Chronic (The Manual) Rhymefest

Shoot for Chronic (The Manual) Rhymefest

If you are not familiar with the ratings 1= oregano, 2= homegrown, 3= mid-grade, 4= dat purp, 5= Chronic
If one must shoot, Shoot for the chronic. Ready. Aim. Fire!

Bullets for (The Manual)
· Coolness. Oh no he didn’t. He to me back to the Cabbage Patch. 11% dis. This is mix tape quality, hence the overall concept. Kind of paper-thin. Yet it set’s the stage of what is too follow.

1. Native MEDLEY IS like chillin with De La Soul on a Saturday afternoon.

2. Pt.2 switches to what I would imagine Kanye West sounded like in 1990 (I guess). I always liked that Master Ace line though.

3. Pt3. Has the Chronic and Tribe called quest. The concept of lyrics don’t match the beat. It sounds forced yet I am intrigued to see what follows.

· Deals a Deal. This Marvin Gaye and CL Smooth excursion is nice and Premier like in essence; this is dopeness complete with nice turntables. Rhymefest should be named rhyme feast on this one. Inspired a hit of the sticky. Perhaps this compilation has life and legs. Where is the big bong? Place in da crate.

· Rhymefest vs. Big Daddy Kane… Truly genius not ingenuous. Have to say Scram Jones out loud though… DJ Fodder. Place in da crate.

· Think About It: This is a Radio sounder with awesome flavor. Thought it was Ludacris at first…I would blaze this joint again. Sadat X seals the blunt. Place in da crate.

· Okay, let smoke and ride out. Tender thug. Hilarity ensues. This smoke definitely needs some Devin the Dude/ Andre 3000 remix with a radio mix. The hook sanger sucks too. I blame the engineer though. 2 for 5, 5 for 10? Classic. Not.

· Supersonic: That was a beatbox! ‘Nuff said. This makes JJ FAD sound refreshing. This hip hop is not for the faint of heart. Too long and seems like it should be B roll material for a documentary. Especially if the documentary includes Eminem in a battle… I’d rewind it just because I can’t believe he did that. Not only that but who don’t want to smile when they hear that sample? Place in da crate.

· Wup your ass. Afroman rekindled.. Next.

· Pulls me back summons the spirit of 2pac and is a rare gem. This is an awesome concept all around. Autotune of the background singer may date this track in the future. Me thinks it’s the best song overall.. Place in da crate.

· Pop it off. That should be the name. The Real name is Party 4 free. Nice and Smooth are funky. Reminds me of skippin class to go see Yo MTV raps on Daytona beach. Not on TV… LIVE!!! Remember the times. Please play this at the party!!! Place in da crate.

· The Overpaid Rhymefest is in da house!!! Rhymefest for President. This is the song I play in MY Cadillac. Christ had undercover haters??? Right brain/ left brain. Place in da crate.

Bullet Shell: Thanks for the Cornel West clip I asked you for.

· Exodus 5:1 That sounds like me. It is reminiscent of the flavor of Jesus Walks. Dead Prez on the remix would be nasty. Especially if the remix included the previous Cornel Clip.

· Goin In. No opinion. Blah. Wanna be a baller? Perhaps too much David Banner in the heavy rotation. Sounds desperate. Perhaps if performed by Scarface…

· Memory Lane inspired the first time I heard the 1st Wu tang album. Unfortunately the sample is so familiar it inspires no specific recollection.

· Sometimes I rhyme slow is The apology for being dope. Crack cannot help being crack. It is what it is. People are the same way. If you got some crack pussy or crack dick in your life consider baby mamma drama (tangent). Excellent cohesive follow to the previous track. Place in da crate.

· Prove Myself is filler or overfill.

· RNQ screams Public Enemy wants their Chuck D back. One should listen to some of the latest Ice Cube release to get a clue on this flavor. The dart is way off bulls-eye. At least say “Yeah, Boy!” two snaps in a z hated it. I hope for a banger. Ohh. That’s the end. Who put Dianna Reeves in the rotation>>>





· Joe Budden Mixtape to Wax! Attempt reminiscent.

Final Grade= 8.5/16 Mid-grade and no roach.

Range Control: Needs an overall mix?

Bus Stop...



Okay, It is like this… I haven’t worked on a song in a while, so when I got the urge to do one yesterday, I just got up and did it. Since these moments don’t happen very often, Imma share with you the fruits of my labors:

It is ghetto introspection ala Forrest Gump. Don’t get phat. Life IS a box of chocolates after all…

Poetic Justice

Well people For my first real post back I shall show my poetic side. Yes i have a poetic side. I may be pushy and mean but poetic none the less. This first poem is special. Its for a little girl very very very close to my heart. My daughter. Thats right i have a young lady thats Daddy crazy. She lives in VA with her mother and it really hard to show how much i love her and this is what came up:

My Angel

My sweet beautiful angel.
Sent to me from above.
I am so grateful to have found you,
and I give you all my love.

You must have come from heaven,
because you have pretty little angel eyes.
When you gaze at me with them,
my heart begins to fly.

Your sweet angelic voice,
continuously rings in my ears.
With you by my side,
there is nothing I fear.

Whenever we are together,
You shine with a heavenly glow.
Your beautiful angel face,
raises me up from feeling low.

Yes, heaven is missing an angel,
because you are here with me.
You're my sweet, beautiful angel,
and I'll love you for eternity!


Here are a few for people i know if you know who I'm directing them to cool if not ask i may or may not tell you..:

Standing by,
All the way.
Here to help you through your day.

Holding you up,
When you are weak,
Helping you find what it is you seek.

Catching your tears,
When you cry.
Pulling you through when the tide is high.

Just being there,
Through thick and thin,
All just to say, you are my friend.




"Ms. Eye Candy…"

Look at you Ms. Lady body carries a mean definition
Sculpted by the heavens, perfection every inch of it
Eyes tell a story of an intimate seduction
Lips grasping my attention losing focus… Thoughts interrupted by images
of me being the Mac gloss up on it
Face should be on a runway or grazing magazine pages
Walk is hypnotic; turning heads when you enter places
With a look that's exotic could be displayed across the world on stage
There are a few words you hear on an everyday basis like
Damn baby, Excuse me there but, can I get a minute miss lady
Bodies sweet, makes me want to take you on trips to places where it's hot and sandy
So, So, Sweet
I had to nickname you Miss EyeCandy….


Heres one that if your under 18 you should not read just skip down to the next:


Iwannaphuckha : Rated R

Fine and Black.....
That ghetto booty,
Suburban cutie,
With the whole package infact.


She got it all....


The finest thing i've ever seen,
With her hair done,
She's the only one,
That would still look good in "Damaged Jeans"


Them juicy lips...
Them full hips...
Them thick thighs,
She must be the Star Trek Enterprise.


Cause Im beamin up !
Damn I wanna fuck...
And all my niggas told me that she suck...


I know she aint class,
But damn, baby got ass.
And I would be a damn fool,
To let that good pussy pass !



Here are a few from one of my favorite poets Edgar Allan Poe :


by Edgar Allan Poe
(1827)


Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?




by Edgar Allan Poe
(1831)

Ah, broken is the golden bowl! the spirit flown forever!
Let the bell toll!- a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river;
And, Guy de Vere, hast thou no tear?- weep now or nevermore!
See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore!
Come! let the burial rite be read- the funeral song be sung!-
An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young-
A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.

"Wretches! ye loved her for her wealth and hated her for her pride,
And when she fell in feeble health, ye blessed her- that she died!
How shall the ritual, then, be read?- the requiem how be sung
By you- by yours, the evil eye,- by yours, the slanderous tongue
That did to death the innocence that died, and died so young?"

Peccavimus; but rave not thus! and let a Sabbath song
Go up to God so solemnly the dead may feel no wrong.
The sweet Lenore hath "gone before," with Hope, that flew beside,
Leaving thee wild for the dear child that should have been thy
bride.
For her, the fair and debonair, that now so lowly lies,
The life upon her yellow hair but not within her eyes
The life still there, upon her hair- the death upon her eyes.

"Avaunt! avaunt! from fiends below, the indignant ghost is riven-
From Hell unto a high estate far up within the Heaven-
From grief and groan, to a golden throne, beside the King of
Heaven!
Let no bell toll, then,- lest her soul, amid its hallowed mirth,
Should catch the note as it doth float up from the damned Earth!
And I!- to-night my heart is light!- no dirge will I upraise,
But waft the angel on her flight with a Paean of old days!"




I hope you enjoy these poems. If you have one feel free to drop it in the comments section. A remember if it ain't ARSON it ain't FIRE....

VA'S FINEST



The Clipse were grindin’ to the top of the rap game when label politics threw a monkey wrench in their program. Currently in contractual limbo, the brothers from Virginia have formed a new crew and are hitting the underground hard.

“You can’t get in such a huge vehicle like this and just expect it to fucking work for you all the way through.”

Gene “Malice” Thornton is a realist. Lounging around a plush orange pool table in the common room of a grand, neo-classical mansion, he’s resigned to the reality of the music industry—for better or for worse, this is the profession he’s chosen. “We’re accustomed to shit like this,” he continues. “From the very beginning, we could tell you all sorts of stories about how it was almost this and all of a sudden it just turned to shit. You just got to have patience, take it day by day and know there ain’t no guarantees, just make the most of it. This is the game, like it or not.”

“A lot of dudes fall off,” says Malice’s younger brother Terrence, who goes by “Pusha T.” Together, the Thornton brothers, 32 and 28, make up the Virginia Beach rap duo the Clipse. Pusha continues, “But those are the same dudes who don’t love the game, who don’t love this as an art form. Who don’t know the Paid in Full album back and forth. That’s the only thing I have any faith in: what we do when we sit down and write. The rest of this shit is out of our hands.”

Malice concurs. “You’re not even mad or bitter at any one person,” he says, over the crack of the cue ball. “You understand it’s the game.”

Pusha chalks his stick, surveys the leave, and nods. “But the problem is getting them to understand. Like, ‘Listen, you’re holding something up right now.’ Something for real, it ain’t no bullshit.”

The big time is so close, the Clipse can feel it. They can feel it, and see it, and smell it, too. It’s in the blue lights that shimmer over the swimming pool in the mansion’s back yard. It’s in the salty air floating in from where the Chesapeake Bay laps at the edge of the lawn. It’s in the Greek statues and modernist furniture, in the life-size Superman mannequin and the five-foot-long Millennium Falcon replica—the eclectic home décor that says, I’m a star, I won’t be defined, and I’m ready for my close-up, Cribs.

The Clipse get a good taste of this kind of success, because this is the house where Pusha T stays—often by himself—and where Malice spends a lot of his time. And yet, this is not their place, not their stuff. This is the house of their close friend, producer and Star Trak label head Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes. And though the celebrity mix-man, songwriter, hook singer and style icon is often away globetrotting, his house serves as a constant reminder of the rewards that music-biz superstardom can bring.

It’s not that things haven’t been pointing in the right direction for the Clipse, former cocaine dealers who switched to rap just a few short years ago. The duo’s Neptunes-produced debut, Lord Willin’, earned a warm reception when it arrived in 2002. Hip-hop fans fell in love with singles like the much-imitated “Grindin’” and the thrilling “Cot Damn.” And while the album fell just short of platinum sales, its impact was enough to make everyone—the Clipse; Star Trak; Star Trak’s parent label, Arista; the critics; the streets—view the group’s follow-up as one of 2004’s most eagerly antici-pated hip-hop releases.

But if you’re swift enough to know that it’s now 2005 and no Clipse follow-up has been released, then you can probably also surmise that things haven’t gone exactly according to plan. Back in late 2003, work was progressing smoothly on the new record. It was far enough along to have been given a name, Hell Hath No Fury, and the group even sat in on some early strategy sessions between L.A. Reid, then president of Arista, and their powerful new manager, Violator Management CEO Chris Lighty. As Pusha recalls, one January 2004 meeting was particularly positive: They talked about what they were going to do differently in marketing the Clipse this time; Reid admitted past mistakes, such as choosing the R&B-flavored “Ma, I Don’t Love Her” as single over a more street record that would’ve pleased the group’s core audience. Plans were set, commitments made.

Then, Pusha says, hours after the meeting, word got out that BMG, Arista’s parent company, was dumping Reid and dissolving Arista into its sister label, Jive Records. Suddenly, a project that seemed to have all the momentum in the world ground to a halt.

The changeover sent all Arista acts, including multi-platinum stars OutKast and Usher, over to Jive. But in the transition, the Neptunes and Star Trak somehow managed to break loose of their deal. According to sources close to the situation, though, in order to avoid being transferred to Jive, Star Trak had to agree to leave the Clipse behind, at least temporarily, until the labels could work out a separate situation for the group. So, while Star Trak quickly found a new home with Interscope, the Clipse stuck around at Jive, hoping to move forward with Hell Hath No Fury, which was by then virtually complete.

At first, Malice and Pusha took a wait-and-see approach. They felt like they had no real reason to worry. They were busy on the road, doing well, and feeling love from fans and media alike. There were questions, though, as to whether Jive could handle street hip-hop (the venerable label, once home to Schoolly D, KRS-One and A Tribe Called Quest, had become better known for teenybop acts like Britney Spears and ’N Sync). Suspicion grew in late 2004 when Jive released Mobb Deep’s Amerikaz Nightmare, a critically acclaimed record by hardcore rap icons that under-performed commercially in the eyes of many.

At this point, things get a bit fuzzy, because just about no one outside the Clipse’s camp wants to speak on the record—or speak at all—about the complex relationship between the group, Star Trak and Jive. Even Pharrell, when asked about the state of the Clipse’s new record, avoids discussing business and speaks only as hype-man: “It’s street music,” he says via email. “And the streets everywhere should prepare for this.” Malice and Pusha T, for their part, have made one thing very clear: They want off Jive.

my 2 cents


Hello people i have noticed that my popularity has droped as if i had a popularity. But
now i must try to rebuild it. I have seen some sort of beef or argument or what ever you wanna call it and its kind of silly. Just cause 50 cent took on Ja Rule at the hight of his carrer and took him down everyone thinks they can do it. But its one thing to do it in real life and silly to try and do it on the internet with a person you dont even know or layed eyes on. If you went too school with them and grew up along side the hated person then hate away, but if you read some storys and opinions of someone for a few months and you decide too disagree with them, you should get a grip on life. Stop acting like a 5 year old and keep it moving. so with that said lets keep it moveing onto the next good thing.

Obsession March06

It is official.
I am obsessed with the following:
T-mobile MDA

The T-Mobile MDA is my brand new phone that I am sporting with a Motorola HS820 Bluetooth headset. The phone is a pocket PC, running off Windows Mobile 5.0 and has a Microsoft Office suite and a .pdf viewer. It has a 1.3-mega-pixel camera as well as video as well as a host of messaging and email options. The phone is way hotter than any device I have ever seen. The only drawback is its lack of ability to handle java applications and availability of free games for download seems slim.


Acer Ferrari 4006

I have been obsessing over this particular line of laptops since 2004 and have yet to pony up for one. I still don’t have a laptop yet and I probably will opt for opt for the dual processor Acers that are available with just as much muscle, a little less shine and price. Boy this joint sure is pretty though. I am really impressed with the SoundBlaster compatible sound cards that I like to use sound fonts and Cakewalk Sonar with….


Shearling Sheepskin Coat

I bought a sheepskin coat when I first got back from Iraq. I never wore it. I tore it. I replaced it with another. I still haven’t worn it. It is now Spring. I still obsess. That coat sure is pretty!


Banana Republic Boxer shorts

The boxers are the most comfortable thing that I have ever put on my ass! They are made with a practical cotton with a luxurious thread count. They also make me look good when I get undressed. Who can ask for anything more?


Lost

It was a science fiction show that transferred to a soap opera and I haven’t been able to miss an episode since I was loaned the complete first season boxset from a coworker. Now we have a Lost watching society where we share the downloaded episodes and review plots, theories, and rumors. I feel like a teenage girl. This is obsession at its finest….
NEC/ Ridata

I have a NEC DVD burner that is awesome! I pair it with these really inexpensive Ridata DVDs and I get awesome results. I cannot see how anyone would pay more for something so inexpensive and sweet as this combo…



The Fountainhead- Ayn Rand


By far one of the best books that I have read… There is no way this book is written in 1943. I am only a little over half through but I love this philosophy veiled with a novel. Dominique Francon (maiden) can so get it; yes, she makes me horny…


Yahoo mobile messenger

This is way cooler than making a phone call and cheaper than sharing text messages. Yahoo on an Internet enabled cellular phone is just awesome, especially if you already yahoo like I do.


No music has made the list. It is time to create the revolution as I see fit.
I now have a new web address; http://blackcaesar.net . I have some personal storage space to go along with my newfound zest for life. I will create. You will see. I will share. Obsession complete.
