I've trashed many a terrible music video before. I've also destroyed lyrically terrible rappers. And sometimes I think that my point gets across to the masses. And sometimes I think niggas don't read. That being said I'm glad that these two lame cats from Oklahoma decided to put their money together and make a somewhat decent video. Because it's good quality and mild editting that you really can't knock. That doesn't make this any less terrible though.
I can't even find a fuckin' word other than terrible. Because the Okie Boys expect me to take this song seriously when you have some randoh white boy in his job interview attire saying "smokin' on dat kisha." I expect this video to go uphill. But no. There's some weird acid trip you have to go through during the chorus where Job Interview is under a bridge spittin' some hot 2 bar hook. No autotune. Because that shit's too mainstream.
Let's assume that they're in Oklahoma. And not by the criminally offensive face tattoo but by the cadillacs and the shiny rims that the are a distinct part of Oklahoma. But it's kinda hard for the believeability when you're rapping by the harbor or something when the LARGEST BODY OF WATER IS FUCKING LAKE EUFUALA!
So.......this is awesome. This is awesome because there's a dude out there that actually is taking the time to fufill your cosplay fantasies and build the very weapons you know and love. And make that shit work.
Tony Swatton is a blacksmith who's created many weapons for movies like Blade,Zorro, andPirates of the Carribbean. So I guess he decided to challenge himself or insulge his love for creating eapons or just do something for the fans out and create weapons by request. And it's not some type of bullshit you'd find at an anime convention. No this shit works. And this shit will kill you if put in the wrong hands. It's legit and he goes into vivid detail so you're not bored looking at him using unique machinery I've never seen before like....the multiple hammer hit thing or the curved thingy machine.
It's worth looking at. The vid of him making theKeyblade from Kingdom Hearts is special. Now imagine if this guy had access to Vibranium. Yes....a katana made of vibranium....
When was the last time I posted on this? What have I been up to? Am I still with the killing? Well I can only answer one of these questions because frankly why the hell am I going to tell you my super secret missions. I mean like...that defeats the purpose. I'm a stealth assasin. A bounty huner. A killer who scours within the night. Why in the fuck am I going to tell you what I've been doing? There are people trying to kill me. They are TRYING. TO KILL. ME. You can't just give that shit away! I mean damn what the fuck you think this is.
But I digress...
Since the last time I've posted I've grown somewhat fond of Hip Hop by discovering artists that are actually worth listening to. Also why I was away I came back to my Electronic roots and decided to jump back into this resurgence of dance music full of fancy lights and pumped up beats and crazy costumes.
I also gotta girlfriend.........for now. Which means you ladies need to give the kid some space. (I'm the Kid by the way). That's right a lucky lady has stepped foot into my life and tornado kicked my heart. I can't exactly tell you if that's a good thing or not but it's something cool to say.
As for DIA2ILL, last I heard from him he was in Las Vegas. And since he got back....he...hasn't exactly told me what the hell he did there. I mean not even I can find out and I'm Dat Dude last I checked. I find out all types of shit. But whatever. Not like he killed someone.......
Cause if he did I got nothing against it. You hear me, I got nothing against you.
Regardless, I'm gonna get back to blogging what I blog best. I'm not going to lie, I kinda forgot what that is because in between last time and now there's been a lotta drinking, some therapy for my ADHD, fights to the death, and a political debate with Ann Coulter. In her bedroom. And not necessarily in that order. So lemme get back to doing that.
Complex Magazine hasn't stirred me wrong. Though my distaste for hip hop has been strong recently, it's outlets like Complex that give me hope. It's a nice balance of mainstream and independent art with real opinions and the ability to recognize what's genuine and what's meant for the commercial audience. Throw in their opinions on style, music, and women, and Complex.com is the right place that speaks to me.
Amongst their thorough lists of opinions is their Best Hip Hop Beats of All Time. A countdown of 100 beats that paved the way maintains a staple in Hip Hop then and now. From the calm mellow sounds of Compton to the grit of NY to the durrty sowff bounce of ATL, these beats are based NOT on their lyrical skills but the amount of time and love spent on them. It also scans legends like DJ Premier, Jay Dilla, and underrated ones like Havoc and Buckwild.
Call it a history lesson but notice that there's only ONE song from 2011 and it's "N****s in Paris". Let this be something to learn from for all you up and coming producers out there.....and for all you rappers spitting bars on a beat that I've heard since '97.
I'm still on my "Fuck Rap" tip right now. Until you give me some quality, I think you and I need to give each other some space. See some other people. Maybe in the future it'll work out. Until then, I need to look elsewhere.
Memoria Inmortal showed up on my twitter multiple times. And I don't mean "Check the mixtape" with a bunch of retweets and a thousand hashtags of twitter searches that don't exist (hashtagging a word is exactly what it is, hashtagging a word). Thing with this is that it showed up on my timeline from a few people that DON'T like hip hop. And apparently they're local. But after one response, it seems they want to represent the local scene without representing the local scene (i.e. rappers).
But there's nothing rap about this. It's...Metal. Maybe I should thank my cousin for introducing me to the Deftones so late in my life because years ago I would've considered this screaming nonsense who wanna be Linkin Park. But it's not. It's actually good. Whomever these guys are use elements of electronica and metal and mesh it well that it doesn't sound like they're trying too hard. The thing about this EP is that it may seem like they're trying to find their niche. You have metal, rock, and a song that sounds like you should be outside a tiki bar with your lighter in a Hawaiian shirt.
Overall it's good, it's different, its $3, it's tolerable if you're not the metal type. But I like it. Whether it's 1 song or the whole EP I recommend it for metalheads and hip hop heads that are stuck in traffic. In fact, maybe you need a live band to help you out in your next 50 dude performance.
