So, through no actions of my own, it appears a song I created with my brother Joey Ripps for my album Broad Street Boogie, released on Blocsonic will be featured in a short film being screened at the Hollywood Black Film Festival!! Talk about amazing! The short film, directed by film student Misa Spencer, is titled "Fall Beats" and is an urban love story.
First off, f*ck Black Liq for making me review this crap. Second, big shout to DJ NOW Graphics and RC DESIGNZ for the updated cover (no way I was putting the actual on my blog...). Now that that's out the way, we can get to it. This week, I'll be reviewing the third studio album by Wheelchair Jimmy, Nothing Was The Same. Seems like every album he does gets him more and more traction in the industry, and is guaranteed to have everyone talking. The album dropped Sept. 24th, but already has 3 songs people love to mention ("Started From The Bottom", "Hold On We're Going Home", & "WuTang Forever"). You can be sure that this album will spawn at least two more radio anthems (albeit, deserved or not).
On a serious note though, I really don't dislike Drake. I think he is technically proficient at rhyming. I just don't always agree with his subject matter. I mean, sounding like a bottle of Vaseline's Intensive Care ain't really my scene... Either way, you can hear how I really feel about the album on the radioooo. As always, listen in to Black Liquid's show Hip-Hop For The Rest Of Us on WRIR 97.3 FM, or stream the show from wrir.org and blackliq.com. Tune in Saturday night at 1 am to catch my views.
