YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I'm back kids. All I have to say is "ain't nobody fucking with nyc" hahaha If you don't know all ready I was in NYC this past week with my man Thanh. The city was crazy especially seeing that CMJ was just this past week. So you all ready know the city was just on some ill shit. Man from drinking beers in coffee cups and being rolled up on by under cover cops to almost coping a ticket laying my feet out on the train. The craziest shit had to been when this dude jumped on this cab in front of club 205 on chrystie st. No but seriously we were at the Cool Kids show and this dude jumps on a cab in front of the spot. Next thing you know he is trying to run everybody over....then this lady gets in the way ....they spit in her car....she comes back with a bat...they steal the bat...she pulls out her badge? She was a cop????? SHIT WAS CRAZY!
All my dj gigs were super cool. Klassen put me on the hotel gig with him the first night we were in town. Literally there were pools in the middle of the dance/seating area. Nobody there but these types of places don't really care? Still got that money for them expensive ass drinks all week!
The Sweatshop Labor dudes know how to throw parties! My man Lucas and Johnsville showed us a fucking great time. I played with them at Home Sweet Home in the Lower E Side. Then was invited to play at this house party in Greenpoint Brooklyn, yo that was a fucking house party. The Sweatshop Labor guys you might not have heard of yet but trust me these guys are bout to blow. There whole crew was dope...The Bangers, Lauren Flax, and you all ready know PURPLE CRUSH!
Yo Roxy had me on at Sway on Monday night with Jaceyoh from Brooklyn. Shit was hella fun all night and my man Jaceyo is a cool ass dude! The week before was Pase Rocks birthday party with Klassen. I heard that shit was bananas. But big ups to Roxy for having me through!
Oh shit, my dude Morsy had me up for his Good Foot night in Park slope BK. That night was so much fun. First we get there its around 11ish, and Sujino was just playing bk hiphop for this girls bday party. What a fucking vibe...no dirty south..no snap..no garbage just classic hiphop from broooooooooklyn!!! Shouts out to Sujino for throwing it down. I went on after the kid and blazed it. Started with some classic dancehall tunes and crowd went nuts. This girl threw it down at the end to..jess jubilee.
And last but not least my girl June D had me on for a musebox party for CMJ. Crowd was mostly into the groups...can't remember them right now but the party was a lot of fun.
Yo big ups to everyone that showed me love while I was up there. All the crews I ran with were super dope.

Real Talk 7: You can get with this...
It's been a minute fam, we got catching up to do. Been a little hectic lately, after taking a new job with a well known fruit company I haven't got as much time as I used to. Rest assured though we here at CB don't punch girls and we don't punch a clock. That being said, hectic Halloween weekend coming up, here's a few tunes to get you to the club and back.
Black Sheep - The Choice Is Yours
Gotta kick it off with the classic. Another one stumbled upon while trying to to clean up my laptop for Leopard, I think the first time I caught this joint was on some mashup mix I got back in another lifetime and the drop immediately stood out; "Engine engine number nine...", beat is pure magic, soul samples and all. It also helps that the video is still miles ahead of everything else too. Crack rocks to chrome records. Serious.
Lil' Flip - This Is The Way We Ball
Takin' it third coast for a minute, my FAVORITE tune from Flipper. Almost checked the curb when I was pushin' something new the other day with XM installed (which I am TOTALLY sold on, by the way). Video on this one is totally ridiculous as well. Crew angle and karaoke to boot? You gotta be joking. Sing song chorus and Flip running the label angle into how he'd like to holler at the VP. Purists hate all you want, dude's got swagger.
Kanye West - The Good Life (feat. T-Pain)
"Graduation" is going HARD. I'll be the first to admit that I called it wrong, and I won't even go re-edit the last post so you can keep the evidence. I heard "Stronger" three times just walking down Greenville the other night, no lie. Video for this one takes the cake. So-Me (of Ed Banger fame) came through and totally killed it. Best green screen EVER. Feel good jam of the year, on the real.
Pitbull - Go Girl (feat. Trina)
New joint from the bottom, really the only major thing that's caught my ear lately. Slow creepin' beat with a nice Cuban influence, and that chorus that everyone loves to chant. Nothing short of infectious. And when was the last time you saw the diamond princess makin' moves? I know right. Pitbull tends to be slept on mostly, especially when he switches up the flow, be on the lookout for "The Boatlift" when it drops.
The Soul Searchers - Blow Your Whistle
A little bit different but I can't seem to get this one out of my head. Swizz went diggin' in the crates to find the sample for Eve's "Tambourine" but the original is just as hot. One for the record but a hype party tune you need to know anyway.
And also, don't forget to check out the dude Sober choppin' it up with the Lost Generation crew at Fallout tonight, time to get your weekend started!

YO YO YO... SPECIAL CB BONUS VIDEOS!!! I GOT SO HYPE ABOUT THE LINE UP FOR THIS THING I HAD TO JUST GO AHEAD AND WASTE MY LITTLE 2 HOURS YOUTUBING OLD SKATE VIDEOS.... GOT 2 THINGS FOR YOU...
1. Pat Duffy - Plan B's "Questionable Video". ... This dude moved the sport forward like 4 years with this one little 3 min section. Say what you want about this dude, but EVERYBODY had to check to make sure their fucking heads were still attached after watching THIS shit. For the time (i think 93??? check me on this..) this shit was just plain unheard of. Even today that last double kink ranks high, and the skating in the rain?!?! Fuck off. Welcome to new school.
2. Kareem Campbell - 20 Shot Sequence. ... This was really the first time I saw video of Kareem. Watching this should also explain any hip hop/skating correlation questions you may have. This shit is CLASSIC. Before this guy, the hood had to ride for Ray Barbee, which was a little to punk rock for some blocks.... Video has Keenan Milton, Ron Creager, Lavar McBride, Jason Dill, etc. SICK SHIT. Ask somebody.
Both of these dudes are gonna be in the spot on Sat... If you don't support this, you're a straight loser.
