Somke Dza's "Rolling Stoned" will be out next Tuesday and since its almost that time I figured I'd put u up on a leak I found "Personal Party" feat Currensy...dope track to smoke to and the rhymez are on point...Rolling Stoned should be a real good listen right now I'm on that Watch the Throne, Verde Terrace, 24 hr karate school, R.E.D album & Smokedoutsundays personally. #SHOTTA
Seems Weezy and Baby felt a way about the "baby money" line on Watch the throne (H.A.M) assisted by Drake??? and Jadakiss...A couple shots from Drizzy & Weezy but Jadakiss definitely wrote that verse w/ no malice involved...I guess this is supposed to get the Carter hot b4 release b/c the numbers speculation at this point don't look as good as they may want it. Check out this exclusive leak download and let me know if you think Jay-Z will respond...hell I'm curious myself..you never know! DL link below #SHOTTA

This week marked the milestone that officially makes the statement Hip Hop is #NOT completely dead....
Billed as the first leak-proof album of its kind, Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative effort, Watch The Throne nearly went reached gold status in its first week. A bulk of those sales were exclusively through iTunes, breaking a record for the Apple digital music store for most first week-units sold ever. Reports indicated that approximately 290,000 of WTT's 436,000 units sold were from iTunes, in which case breaking Coldplay's 2008 record by 135,000 copies. The work features Frank Ocean, Mr. Hudson and Beyonce.
Speaking of, Beyonce's 4 remained a Top 10 release. The Destiny's Child alum's fourth solo offering features an appearance by Outkast's Andre 3000, along with production from Kanye West and his production team - including Jeff Bhasker, as well as a writing credit to former G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence.
Def Jam Records' other release last week, Ace Hood's Blood, Sweat & Tears pulled a Top debut. The Miami, Florida rapper and DJ Khaled protege sold over 25,000 first-week units. The rapper's third album features Yo Gotti, Lil Wayne and Drake.
Royce Da 5'9 and Eminem (as Bad Meets Evil) and their album, Hell: The Sequel climbed three spots. As of now, the Motor City natives are gradually approaching 500,000 units sold, which would earn Royce his first plaque from the RIAA.
A third duo, Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame's Brick Squad 1017 project, Ferrari Boyz, also debuted, with over 15,000 units sold. The Warner Brothers Records project features production from Drumma Boy, as well as in-house hit-makers Lex Luger and Southside.

Royce Da 5'9's solo album, Success Is Certain, scored a Top 25 debut. Nickel Nine's self-proclaimed "last solo album on an independent" featured some impressive help, such as Eminem, Travis Barker and Joe Budden, despite its Gracie Productions backing. The album is a thematic update to Royce's sophomore album, 2004's Death Is Certain.
Another Detroit, Michigan emcee, Big Sean, is fast approaching 200,000 units sold with his G.O.O.D./Def Jam Records debut, Finally Famous: The Album. Executive produced by Kanye West, the project was largely handled under the direction of Chicago Hip Hop pioneer No I.D.
Speaking of 'Ye, last November's magnum opus My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy saw a 29-place increase on the charts. Reportedly, the album's work with West's mentor, Jay-Z, is what prompted the idea for Watch The Throne.
A follow-up to 2009's Chamber Music, Legendary Weapons enjoyed a third week on the charts. Not to be confused as an official Clan album, this work, produced by Funk outfit The Revelations, along with guidance from RZA, featured Sean Price, Roc Marciano and Action Bronson, in addition to Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, U-God and Inspectah Deck. Masta Killa and GZA did not participate. The work fell 53 more spots in its second week on the charts.
OFWGKTA's Tyler, The Creator and Goblin climbed 19 spots on the charts, crossing the 100,000 mark.

BiG K.R.I.T is back w/ another tape before his Def Jam release "Last King 2" full of new production, features, and its a nice warmup to the album w/ a gang of cuts on it a definite DL. I had no idea Sha Money Xl was Krit's manager..yet another reason he's got a major prescence other than his music of course.

So I found a new group I like "White hinterland" after listening to this track called "icarus" on their new album, Kairos, they have a cool vibe.. electronic indulgences. Lead songstress Casey Daniel sounds like some sort of mermaid siren (i dig it), coaxing you down to her underwater basscave. You want to go to there. Kairos is out March 9th through Dead Oceans. support the artist...#SHOTTA

My brejrin Willie The Kid has been doing his thing since before Gangsta Grillz so respect his grind. Heavy on the wordplay detroit MC WTK has the respect of all who love dope spittas, including spitta himself who is featured on "The Fly" and "Never a Dull moment". The Crates are no exception filled w/ incredible soul samples w/ a modern feel, & even more modern rhymes. Wicked artwork cover also...B4 i even met him I was a fan & I still am, he can convert you too. Check out the crates and check out his entire catalog..it's a must listen! #SHOTTA

The way its going I really believe the house will push to impeach the president...I think a formal bill hasn't been drawn b/c they actually believe Michelle Bachmann will defeat him..(how I don't know)... Feels like "98" over again..I don't think there will be enough Senate votes but who knows??? I've been wrong about a few things *shrugs*
If it does happen Obama #WILL be re-elected in 2012 for sure!
