Christmas was real cool this year. my family came from Dayton to visit and i actually got gifts this year lol
i also began brainstorming on a new album. My Dope Is Doper Than Your Dope will be out next month. i think you'll dig the first single, "Lebron James". i've been writing more than usual(and for those that know me, thats saying something)and getting beats from all over the country. imma figure out how u can get the free download from this page. the only price to pay will be your opinion of the album.
On To "that's fucked up" News
one of my beat files became corrupted and deleted a shit load of music-including the original version of "Lebron James". but a lot of The Jungle's music and several Junkeez instrumentals are gone.
also, the demo is dead. R.I.P
Martian VS The Juggernaut
i guess 50 Cent did get under Lil Wayne's skin. after Weezy shrugged off 50's taunts and had the biggest year of his career a "leaked" dis song comes to light.
chicken fajitas are tasty.

rap fans are nerds. they argue all day about ppl they will never meet while brow-beating each other over supposed lack of cultural knowledge. its the same as arguing about "who shot first? Han or Greedo?"(getcha Star Wars game up).
listening to a rap-nerd debate is quite amusing. especially if the debating parties have been drinking. voices raise and incoherent half-assed renditions of Hip-Hop classics are recited
the same cat that will denounce Lil Wayne will go on to tell u that the Gza is the greatest lyricist of all time. "u ain't got that Liquid Swords, kid? u illin,son."
the same goes for the Martian's disciples when it comes to understanding the realm beyond swag.
and fuck swag btw.
NEW JACK BEEF
i always find it amusing when new rappers go at each other instead of, u know, furthering their careers. back in the day there would be a B-side single released against your opponent but there was very little chance u would actually meet face to face. the late 90's and early 2000's brought about the mixtape format. now, in 2008, the new way of proving ur gangsta is by......blogging. ugh.
now i don't advocate fisticuffs of any sort and Lord knows Hip-Hop doesn't need anymore negative press but blogging about beef? a simple 4-minute dis track will suffice, ladies and gentlemen. no 4,000 word essays and youtube videos, please.
and for the 6,345,629th time, lay offa Soulja Boy, ppl.
do i have any of his music on my hard-drive? no. is his brand of music for me? no. do i hate the mention of his name and curse the day he was born and blame him for the disappointing sales of rappers more lyrical than he is? no.
the kids like him. that's why he's a mega-super-kajillionaire. there isn't a conspiracy against ur favorite rapper. nor do i believe he is masterminding the demise of a culture thats been around longer than his moms. THE.KIDS.LIKE.HIM. its that simple.
the bottom line is everyone needs to find their own lane. i'm broker than every rapper i listen to but that has no bearing on how i view them. i'm just trying to find my lane and floor it.
"......i'm just saying-shit don't stink if u don't smell it"
me and my ace boon since the 5th grade, Mista Chaos, will finally be recording our second album as The Junkeez.
the first album, detox(yes, long B4 Dre decided to call his forever delayed album that) came out 100 years ago back in 2001. the new album, rehab(of course) will be out early 2009 and the songs we have so far are the shit. yes, i'm biased but they really are the shit. check em out:

our longtime Hunnedspokes(now beatjones inc......holla!) group member Mizzat is also on the album and provides some production(that's him on the third verse of "Life is a Five Letter Word").

also on the horizon is The Jungle's new album Superamazing. if u know anything about The Jungle then u know 2 expect the unexpected. its rock. its hip-hop. its bangin'. check out the preview:
also be on the lookout 4 my protege Gimme's mixtape Gimme Got Got. he's one of the most lyrical new cats out there and ur guaranteed 2 hit rewind when u listen 2 him. i'll be providing some production and the whole beatjones fam will lend a hand on the project.
and if my stamina holds out, be on the lookout 4 two movies/videos/low-budget bootlegs this year. i can't tell u what they're about but they're tight. trust me.
i'm gonna be ranting about the future of hip-hop on my next post so be prepared.
