Salute to Chuck D, Professor Griff, Flavor Flav, Terminator X and the big homie DJ Lord. Tonight Hip Hop legends Public Enemy were inducted into the 28th Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Salute to Public Enemy for always making music true to their hearts. PE has never compromised their thoughts, ideas, and sound and it’s great to see them still able to tour the world to packed shows bringing the noise.
And to think back in the day, record labels, media, and many more said that Hip Hop would not last and it just a passing fad. Now it’s in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame with Beastie Boys, Run Dmc, Grandmaster Flash & Furious Five and now Public Enemy.
Listen to Chuck drop some jewels last year, after inducting Beastie Boys into the HOF.
DOUG ANDERSON IS A BEAST!!! Nuff Said. He beasted the dunk contest so bad this year, they don’t even show the other dunks in the highlights. “Don’t believe me just watch!”
Thursday night at GA Tech’s newly opened Basketball stadium, Detroit’s Doug Anderson astounded the crowd with an amazing mix of dunks. Add on too that, HE DID NOT MISS ONE DUNK!! Truly, this was better than the NBA Slam Dunk contest. Can’t wait for D.A. to get drafted so we can see him light it up for All Star Weekend. Also check the footwork, Anderson rocks Jordan Cement 3 Retro’s for the occasion. The same kicks MJ won his 2nd slam dunk title in Chicago wearing over “The Human Highlight Film” Dominique.
This kicks off NCAA Final Four Weekend in ATL. Tons of concerts, games, and festivities. What you planning on getting into?
Two Queens legends who have never worked together. Well… I guess it’s better late than never. New joint from N.O.R.E. who is officially calling himself Papi… I think I’ll stick to calling him NORE for a while. Lol. Large Pro on the track and it’s called “Built Pyramids.” If I was from Queens, this would be my anthem right now.
Earlier this evening Adamville’s finest Killer Mike performed on Late Night with David Letterman and brought El-P and Scar along for the ride. TV just got good again. In case you missed it, check it out here.
Latest video from ATL emcee, DJ, and producer Rock Most. Track is called “Kill The Feed” and also features ATL’s own dynamic duo Clan Destined.

Today March 9th, 2013 marks 16 years to the day that the Notorious B.I.G. was murdered in LA. Leaving a huge void in the life of his family as well as the Hip Hop community.
A lot of people always say “why do we celebrate the day people die more than their birthday?” That’s a GREAT question. As far as our celebrities, I think the reason why is, we weren’t there when they were born, but we were there when they passed, and we remember the effect it had on us personally.
Even though the Notorious B.I.G. technically only released ONE album before his death (his second LP was released 2 weeks after his death) he created a LOT of hits and classic tracks that still are loved and played heavily till this day. One can only imagine where and what Biggie would be doing today if he were still alive.
So today especially, as I do in May (when his birthday is) I play Big’s music wherever I’m at un-apologetically loud! I suggest you do the same.
We still miss you B.I.G… R.I.P.
Here’s some rare footage of Biggie, and Puff Daddy performing in London from Tim Westwood. This was captured during a BBC Radio event in London circa 1995
