Wacka Flocka f. Wale & Roscoe Dash- No Hands

I dont know why I'm surprised at this feature. Wale does a wide variety of features and covers. Just another banger from three of the top artist most love to hate. "Flocka!" *shakes imaginary dreads*

Asher Roth- G.R.I.N.D. (Radio Rip)

Just in case you havent heard it yet. Shoutout to 2dopeboyz. This joint is fiyah.

Big Sean x Royce Da 5'9" x Mr. Porter- My Own World

Remember the earlier post that showed Royce Da 5'9" in the studio w/ Big Sean? Well if you don't, go to the search box and watch it before you listen to this joint. This is what you gett when Slaughterhouse meets G.O.O.D. Music. Mr. Porter provides the vocals and the beat.

(First blog post from my cell phone haha.)

Complex x Vitamin Water x Don Cannon- The Choice is Yours [Mixtape]

It’s a three track mixtape featuring Chip Tha Rip, Mikey Rocks, Nipsy Hussle, Jadakiss, & Brisco. (Click Here to listen and download)

Dope Gear: GX-56 G-Shocks

Dubbed the GX-56. A new model to be released during 2010. A keen eye can spot the design inspiration from the classic GLX-5600. Many new details were added, such as the LCD screen's "negative" color scheme.

Dope Stuff: Back to the Hoverboard

Made in 2008, an exhibit aptly titled “Back to the Future,” artist Nils Guadagnin sculpted an exact replica of the hoverboard used in the sequel. He fitted it with an electromagnetic and an internal laser stabilization system that allows the board to levitate.

Dope Stuff: Nerd Vs Bad Guys

Video is made by an asain kid by the name of Fwong. He's made some dope videos before via youtube, but this is by far the best. Uses Airsoft BB guns and after effects to produce this vicious vid.

Dope Gear: SIMPLEX- Drake: The Mixtape Was Better [First Look]

Drake's debut album release is right around the corner. With the success of So Far Gone, Drake's first album was expected to be beyond a mixtape and possibly the best album of the year. The recent leaks from the album has proven otherwise and is disappointing to most NeoHipsters.

I have decided to debut my SIMPLEX clothing branch this summer and leading the pack is the So Far Gone inspired teeshirt. The logos for SIMPLEX are the "O" and Rabid (figure standing on the falling words).

Tees will release July 1st, a week after Thank Me Later, and will run $35.00 a piece.

Tabi Bonney- A Place Called Stardom [Mixtape]

Mixtape is hosted by Mick Boogie and sponsored by DC cartel shops Commonwealth, and Stussy DC. Tabi, leader of the Dope movement and OG NeoHipster, is what some would say is a breath of fresh air from the music scene in DC. The mixtape features collabs from Wale, Raheem Devaughn, and Curren$y, and producers such as Alchemist, SkiBeats, Poet, and more. He blows the roof off w/ his first mixtape ever by concentrating on a different style of hip-hop by infusing spoken word w/ various tempo'd beats.

Lola Maxwell PhotoShoot [Behind The Scenes]

Lastnight myself, as well as my sister Bre, attended Lola Maxwell's Part II of her tee shirt and album promo photoshoot. Part I was shot at the National Harbor in Maryland. In this shoot we were located at The Art Institute of Alexandria, VA. It was official and everyone had fun chillin w/ the Maxwell fam. She's currently recordin tracks for her 7th mixtape. Peep her blog and follow her on twitter for show dates and more info on how to buy the tees.

Thank you for the opportunity Lola.

Drake f. Alicia Keys- Fireworks [Radio Rip]

Wow. Thank Me Later is about to bee leaked within a week. There are about 4-5 more songs to go till we've heard the whole thing. Below is a radio rip of the official collab between Ms. Keys and Drake. Official CDQ droppin this friday I bet.

Dope Gear: Kreative Khaos [Coming Soon]

The Cool Kids- TackleBox [Mixtape Artwork]

I spoke with Mikey Rocks briefly about their next tape & album not too long ago, and he informed me to look out for it mid-late 2010. Released 4 days ago, via Chuck Inglish's twitter, was a computer snapshot of The Cool Kids' next mixtape cover. I cant wait for the release date of the tape and their album When Fish Ride Bicycles.

Wiz Khalifa- The Kid Frankie [Video]

Mr. Spacely and the Taylor Gang crew release the official video for one of the faster tempo'd tracks on Kush & OJ. Peep the UTB Life$tyle gear.

Funny Stuff: White Guy covers "O Lets Do It"

I thought this was hilarious. He drops the N-Bomb like 3 times but has approval of a black guy who sits in the room the whole time. Turn your speakers down as there is some distortion because the white boy goes in on the vocals lol.

LEGO Stuff: Matrix

The video was uploaded by LegoAgentJones. He works with LEGO's to recreate some of the best scenes from popular movies. The one below took around 440 hours of work, and is entitled "Trinity Help". It is a direct copy of the infamous bullet dodge scene in the first installment of the Matrix trilogies. See the making of the mini flick at

Dope Gear: DURKL Feature

Syce Game loves DURKL. We were part of the first few to hear about the line and wear their gear. Dubb-B as well as myself went through great lengths to try and track down the creator and the shop. We bought some gear not only becuase it was dope, but because we wanted the official address so we can "google maps" it lol.

Anyways, here we have a preview of DURKL's summer line of tees. I'm feelin every design and I'm hoping to invest in these tees soon.

There is also the video showing off their recent collab w/ German bag company, Ortlieb, below.

Dont forget DURKL is throwin their first annual block party this Memorial Day. Hopefully Syce Game can get a video interview w/ Mr. 2047 himself, Luke. Details and flyer are in an earlier post.

Also visit the site to cop some pieces :

Kanye West- Good Ass Job [Album Hype]

British radio personality DJ Semtex [as well as other sources] has shared his thoughts on Kanye West’s upcoming new single off his highly anticipated album Good Ass Job. Prepare to get Syce'd.

The album is coming in September. Okay, so I’ve heard the first Kanye West joint. I was sworn to secrecy. All I can say is it is banging. If that’s a taste of what’s coming on the album, he has smacked it. Lyrically….he is saying things like, ‘Wow, he said that?’ It is going to shock everybody, the first record.

-DJ Semtex

The final mastered version? No I doubt it, but this is a CDQ (CD Quality) version. Aliyah provides the sample. Thank Me Later slated for June 15th. *Fabalous voice* "Niice."

Chris Brown x Tyga x Kevin Mcall- Deuces [Video]

Some smoove visuals for Chris & Tyga's breakup anthem.
