GQ: Eminem Lil Wanye and Keith Richards “Gods Of Rock” (Video)

Posted in Magazines, Video on October 18th, 2011 by B. Brown

As if the title doesn’t say it clear enough, GQ Magazine has dubbed Eminiem, Lil Wayne and Keith Richards the “Gods Of Rock” for their latest issue. Congrats to all three influential artists. Check out this excerpt from Eminem about his drug usage in the past.

“So I had to go in and make new songs to replace them. In my head I was pissed off: ‘Oh well. Songs leaked. F–k it. I’m just going to take a bunch of f–king pills and go in there and have a party with myself.’ I’m sure the more pills I took, the goofier I got.”

“Look, every addict in rehab feels like everyone’s staring at them. With me? Everyone was staring at me. I could never be comfortable. There were people there that treated me normal. Then there were a bunch of f–king idiots who aren’t even concentrating on their own sobriety because they’re so worried about mine. They’re stealing my hats, my books—it was chaos. Everything was drama in there. And at the time, I didn’t really want to get clean. Everybody else wanted me to. And anyone will tell you: If you’re not ready, nothing is going to change you. Love, nothing.” -RapFix

AKNB Case Of The Mondays: Maxim – Sex Wit Your Ex

Posted in Downloads on November 22nd, 2010 by B. Brown

Just a little read to get you over that hump we call a Monday. Enjoy

One of the shadiest things I ever did in college was sleep with two different guys in one day. Morally questionable, sure, but you see, one of them didn’t really count—he was my ex. I’d stopped by to pick up my things, and we had one last hurrah, a going-away party to seal the breakup deal, even though I was already dating someone else.

At the time I was under the impression that since he wasn’t a new notch on the bedpost, sleeping with my ex didn’t matter. Not true, of course, but when it works, ex sex is sort of like a get-laid-free card: easy, superhot, and painless. When it doesn’t, it’s, well, the exact opposite. But right or wrong, most girls are more than willing to risk future awkwardness by returning to a past fling. Choose the right ex and you could get laid free, too.

XXL Magazine drops the word on the Illest Illustrated Album Covers

Posted in Cover Art/Tracklisting on March 17th, 2010 by B. Brown

Up top is my personal favorite out of the XXL line up for best graphic work on an album cover.

A wise man once said, don’t judge a book by its cover. That may be a fitting assessment for the written word, but when it comes to rap music, we like our album covers to be as colorful as the artists themselves. That’s why fans were so psyched yesterday when the final comic-book inspired artwork was unveiled for Meth, Rae and Ghost’s upcoming collabo LP, Wu-Massacre. The Shaolin rhymeslingers are just the latest MCs to get animated. XXLMag.com has compiled a list of some of hip-hop’s illest illustrated album covers, dope enough to hang in any collector’s art gallery. Brush up…
