Sum Ish R Wrote – 2.16.15 »

My lame once every few month update average needs to improve, or I need to shut down the site. I’m paying the cost of spotify a month to keep the page up, ha! YEAR IN REVIEW REAL QUICKLY THOUGH: I’ll do this quickly, because those clickbait articles aren’t worth your time.  Album of the Year? [...]

Belated birthday wishes to D. Ellis + Other Thoughts »

Happy Belated to D. Ellis I know what you are thinking, this website has about a four post per yer year average and that’s so…laaaaaaaaame, and you aren’t kidding.  I’ll blame it on my wedding this year and an overall malaise about writing about rap music.  Excuses aside, I actually had a writing/mix planned for [...]

Sum Ish I Finally Wrote – 7.20.14 »

A four month hiatus? Damn, I’m slacking after spending all the time getting this new website up. I’ll blame the marriage-industry complex taking up most of my time as I’m about to get married in like two weeks. Having to plan and pay for a wedding has led me to believe that kids shouldn’t go [...]

So I’m lazy, have a great MF Doom mix I made »

Ok so I’ve been swamped at work, I really want to talk about three incredible records – Isaiah Rashad, Vince Staples, and Freddie Gibbs/Madlib.  I’ll get on it soon, but until then – enjoy this MF Doom mix.       -big R

Review Haikus and other thoughts »

It’s a snow day in DC, which gives me more time to give a quick review of all the new music that has hit us recently.  Plus thoughts on random sh*t. Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron A bit hit or miss, Hits like “Break the Bank” are DOPE. Overall, Schoolboy Cool. Pharrell - G I R L [...]

Valentine’s Day Ode to the Filet-o-Fish »

It’s Valentine’s Day, and my lady is out of the country visiting family – so I have to dedicate this to my first love, the Filet-o-Fish.  Sure, you may think it’s weird that I’m in love with the Fish Filet.  But after I had that first bite, I never really had a choice in the [...]

Sum Ish I Wrote – 2.13.14 »

Been a while, I was out sick and working 12 hour days.  That’s that shit I dont like.  Among other things really, here is a list of things I’m not feeling with some positives to end though. That’s the Sh*t I Dont Like: The almost Zimmerman vs. DMX fight – I took to the social [...]

Vince Young Fan Fiction »

This is Vince Young’s diary.  Written on the second day of the second month of a year I could give a shit about.  I’m in my humble Houston abode. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and I feel relaxed because of the music I’m listening to right now.  My Evanescence Pandora Radio Station is my saving grace. [...]

Super Bowl Sunday – Have a DJ Premier Mix »

First, a RIP shout out to a master of his craft, Phillip Seymour-Hoffman.  Capote, The Master, Boogie Nights, Almost Famous, etc – dude was brilliant at his job. Second, it’s superbowl time. Who do I got? I got Seattle with the points.  Why?  San Diego’s defense, which is meh, was able to make Peyton look [...]

Macklemore responds to the Backlashlemore »

Hi there: It’s your friendly neighborhood rapper, Macklemore. My mother always told me that when it comes to being angry, it’s better to be Mack-le-less, than Mack-le-more. I need to flip the script on that, because gosh darnit, I’m downright angry and Macklemotional.  Recently, I’ve been the target of a lot of hateful backlash. A [...]
