Cool Kids – Dinner Time

New Cool Kids track fromThat’s Stupid, the mixtape that disappeared, now resurfaced. Spotted over at FSD.

Download: Cool Kids – Dinner Time

Oh, and to get on my soapbox for a minute…. people’s comments on Nah Right crack me up. “I’m from the Chi and I’ll never listen to a Cool Kids song…”.

Mr. Blog Commenter… maybe you should sit down and listen to a track or two prior to casting stones. But you know what, nevermind… stick with your un-warranted/educated opinion.

But this guy (meaningless? GTFOHWTBS), and other people that try to use the term “hipster rap” as a limiting box to categorize something, remind me of the pissed off guy at a party going home alone. Out of all the things wrong in the hip hop industry, people are focusing on some kids with funky beats, fresh styles & party music… who know their history!? I don’t get it. At least Ice-T is focusing his hateful energies on more pressing issues.

The only readable criticism I’ve read is from Rusty, and he’s merely focusing on the history aspect.


1992 – Dream Team cups from McDonalds

As I was looking for a picture of these gems, I found a Dream Team drinking game from 1992… hahaha, I love the Interweb. Full game description after the jump Continue reading ‘1992 – Dream Team cups from McDonalds’

Barry Bonds x Spaz (Dub Floyd Screamixx)

Drew the Barber at Fake Shore Drive has had a LOT of unreleased exclusives lately, too much for me to re-purpose here. So make sure you go over to FSD and “Get familiar!” © Clinton Sparks

I just downloaded the above Kanye mixtape, from Hevehitta and Dub Floyd. It’s a nice collection of Kanye raririties and remixes. Some are familiar (Livin a Movie), some I’ve never heard (Plastic ft. Really Doe), and some came from the Go-Getters album (World Record Holders). And a little bonus track of Colin Monroe’s version of Flashing Lights with Little Brother’s verses from “The Way You Do It”?? Ok…. OK Dub Floyd. I see you.

I digress… My favorite mix on the tape is the Dub Floyd remix of Barry Bonds.

Rusty put me on to this new track from Indianapolis-based MC alpha., from Class of ’93 (w/ DJ Metrognome). I saw a video of alpha. on the mic for the got SOLE? Grand Opening, and he really caught my attention. Then I saw Class of 93 open up for the Cool Kids at the Vogue in April, which”fuuuuuuuurther let me know” (© Steve Harvey) that alpha. spit hot fiya like Dylan on Chappelle’s skit.

He entered in, to Harvard Law, at 88
