Angry Smurf Discovers The Sixth Sense





     Am I the only person who wakes up on some maniac shit? 

 Like, the second my eyes open, the mental to-do checklist starts unraveling.   Im grabbing my blackberry, sending wild messages, and text banging Angry Smurf style................................


Its starting to feel like new-Alchemist-album season, and
  I must say this new ALC/CNN joint is harder than a two day old shit  word to Phife Dawg............................... just read the treatment for the vid.  beat makes your face have that "i smell shit" look.     Gonna be on both their new album,Channel 10 and mine, Chemical Warfare. 

    stay tuned ima post it soon.      


  I live for the Family Guy.  Brian kills me.  Whoever writes that shit might be the only person in town with stronger weed than me.............. I wonder what I would have to do to get an intern job as a writer over there......................  


  As I was chopping up this well-known break the other day (that shall remain nameless) I heard a James Earl Jones type voice in my head saying  'Many humans have sampled this break before, many have even chopped the same pieces.  But there is NO motherfucker on this planet that will do what you are about to do to it.'................people without imagination are lame.

   Imagination should be like one of the five senses.  Hear, smell, touch, see, taste. 

 and imagine.

 And if you don't have it or were born without it you should be considered handicapped................................

the 6th sense.

    By the way, horrible movie..........
you know a movie sucks extreme ass when in the first two minutes there's already  corny cliche lines with the movie title blatantly placed in them.    ex: 'oh, no, lookout, its......The Sixth Sense!'   or  'and then they discovered.....The Sixth Sense!'     just bad................



   So i'm in the crowd watching Kanye kill it at the Garden last week, as I manuevered closer and closer to wherever the soundboard was.....................    

  Wondering how much of this rap money I would have to hit the soundman with to sneak plug in this portable dat on the low, solo the bass and synth tracks, and press record.   

Holy shite his band was retarded with it.     

Shit was like listening to a record.........one of those craazy prog rock records where, even if its not a part to sample, the whole record just sounds good...............I was bugging on how Kanye weaved his whole catalog together musicaly like that.   Shit was inspiring, he's the man.     


I went straight home charged and made two new ones.

Hope Al, Dilated and La Coka are involved in this

VH1 announced earlier today that Cypress Hill, Naughty By Nature, Slick Rick, De La Soul and Too $hort will all be honored at the fifth annual “VH1 Hip Hop Honors,” hosted again by comedian Tracy Morgan.

Executive Vice President and General Manager of VH1, Tom Calderone said, “Now in its fifth year, the ‘VH1 Hip Hop Honors’ has come to represent the pinnacle of innovation and achievement in hip hop music. This year’s five honorees are no different and are being recognized for their significant contributions to hip hop culture and for helping to elevate hip hop into a truly global phenomenon.”

L.A. based Cypress Hill is credited with bringing a Latino element to hip-hop and is best known for the hit “Insane in the Brain,” which appealed to rap and rock fans alike. Long Island natives, De La Soul is said to have inspired the underground movement in hip-hop culture.

Lead by Treach, the New Jersey group, Naughty By Nature created such classics as “OPP” and “Hip Hop Hooray” both of which are among the most popular rap records of all time. With his signature eye patch and gold chains, Slick Rick created his own fashion and rhyme style. Too $hort is best-known for his raw style and freaky lyrics and he earned a name for himself after selling singles off his own indie label in Oakland in the 80’s.

“VH1 Hip Hop Honors” will air on Tuesday October 7th at 10 PM.

yeah man. imagination is what drives this world. boundaries are pushed only by thinking about what's not there and what could be.

what the fuck would hip hop be without imagination?

it'd be like trying to read a book with no eyes.

god bless good music
