Cool short interview with Freddie Gibbs basically saying hey let's tell the whole story and stay in your lane and respect the art.
[audio is unmixed + unmastered] First glimpse into the thought process behind the new epic Sum solo, Dragon. This is a conversation between Sum and his wife, Nzinga Kadalie, during a hike through the Santa Monica mountain range. Spirituality, heroes, and the dragon spirit are all topics of discussion. Audio slightly out of sync during the performance. Song title and producer shall remain unannounced until a later date.

FHHN friend TastyKeish of WBAI's Rise Up Radio, went to see how real the KONY movement really is offline. Very interesting how the elaborate the promotion looks a campaign for someone name KONY running for office in 2012. The last time I checked, people don't wear garments and brandish colorful posters of villains in order to create awareness about their treachery. Looks like some geniuses found a way to exploit the naivete of our youth who are driven to affect change in any way they're convinced that they can do so.
Always to good to see a young man express feelings in a genuine way on a record about something real to him. Takes a certain amount venerability to sing your message, but also an equal amount of strength and confidence to share it.

This looks interesting. But in order for a film like this to be made and distributed, well you need $'s. Show your support by contributing to the Kickstarter. Don't wait till it gets made and search for a torrent unless of course they decide to offer it up as such...

Man. I love y’all, man. I hope this table don’t fall and everything stays smooth. First off, NYU I want to say I love you. And thank each and every one of you, every beautiful person in the building, every legend, every historical human being. You know, every future legend in the building, man. I’m in the building with the future. Y’all going to be helping me when things get hard for me. That’s what I hope. I hope everybody leaves this conversation together feeling like family. This is not everybody listening to me, this is everybody is a part of it. If you feel compelled to say something in your heart, please do, because at the end of the day we all have something to teach, and we all have something to say.Read more: http://www.thefader.com/2012/04/12/based-scripture-the-full-transcript-of-lil-bs-lecture-at-nyu/#ixzz1rpQHJnqm
My buddy Brad passed away two days ago and it's been really hard for everyone who knew him. Brad told me he watched my videos and listened to my music, so this ones for him.

Player Hating: A Love Story
Definition: Player Hating- Someone else is about to shine, and you’ll do anything to keep that motherfucker from getting his cheese — it can be as subtle as negative flow (lyrics) or as extreme as trying to clap (shoot) him. – Trent Bond, Half’s Manager and former NYPD Detective
Half-a-Mill is a 26 year old hip hop artist from the Albany Projects in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. By the time he was seven, Half was sharing a gun with his brother, ‘cause he was sick of people putting their guns in his face in the elevator of his building, and not being able to do anything about it. Half’s been running with the same ten guys, since he was real little, and they’re his crew. But he’s the one that will take all of them out of the projects because he’s been signed by the indie music label, Warlock Records. Half and his crew are doing most of the work to launch his first album Milion, but that’s ok because there’s the chance they’ll blow up, and Half wants that so bad he can taste it, and he’ll do whatever he has to do, in order to support himself, his family and his music.
Player Hating: A Love Story follows Half-a-Mill and his Brooklyn crew, The Godfia Criminals, as they struggle to launch Milion, in an effort to attain money, success and recognition through music. Player Hating delves intimately into the lives of young “thugs”, and takes the viewer into an underground world of poverty, alienation, gangs, violence and music that most audience members have an inkling of, but few rarely see—unless they’ve lived it.
Wish the song wasn't on iTunes but somewhere where all of the funds, every cent would go to the family. iTunes shouldn't get a cent.
All the proceeds will go to the Martin family. Click here to buy "We Are Trayvon" on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/we-are-trayvon-single/id514394327?uo=4
