BELOW THE SURFACE
Amazing illustrations of what might be below the surface. At the Schusev State Museum of Architecture
Body parts come and go, but good hip hop? Well that comes and goes too, but before it comes (insert joke/tip) it stills. Yeah still, like the bottle of water you paid $9 for, while the groups and rappers actively push their music and shows. It; is the music, the tracks, the time, the effort, the emotion, the shit, and the everything. Some rappers get lucky and score a quick single on the radio, success overnight, shortlived yet still success.
If it were up to me I would take the shortlived success, mainly shortlived can lead to something prosperous. Like the Cash 4 Gold Scheme, kinda? Then the word Legend comes to mind. What makes a legend? Who cares, It happens like the Dos Equis guy getting laid. Legends like Wu Tang, didnt just ball out on one hit, they created masterpieces then unleashed them on us innocent bystanders, until all of us were engulfed in the madness. Every now and then a couple acts come out that take the US (which is basically the world) by storm, recently TDE (Top Dog Entertainment aka Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul and etc)
I have heard the next two big names in hip hop and am willing to bet my kidney on their future. Yes, that’s right, a verbal agreement of my body part, promising that BIGGA BIZZ and YOUNG CHEECH will each eventually be one of the biggest acts out. Who are these people and are they related? No they’re not related, Bigga Bizz is a group and Young Cheech is a rapper; and yes my vital organs are on the line, so pay close attention you drunks. Also, this is not a Boston thing, this is a high quality gut instinct thing, ya dig.
The squad that tackles any angle in every direction and the group that runs shit. I play a track and it stays playing over and over and over. They are a well glued firm that has their songs mixed to perfection and their lines on point. “Fuck the world and your girl I’m just gettin blunted, only live once..fuck it,” as Bigga Bizz says.
BEFORE I TALK ABOUT YOUNG CHEECH OR PLAY ANY OF HIS MUSIC, GOOGLE THIS DUDE RIGHT NOW.
Yeah that’s what I thought, hollywood stylin. Young Cheech has been killing it and doing so much work for so long that I don’t know if I can say he’ll be the best, since he’s already the best! Shit, with tracks with Dipset and Jadakiss can you argue?
When I first met Young Cheech, it was at a studio and he had just layed down tracks with Dipset (days earlier). I interviewed him and was starstruck, not by the rappers he worked with but by the hard work. He (and to this day) may be one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met, nothing comes easy and nothings wasted. I knew that first day that Young Cheech was a name to remember, for life. Keep a close eye on this goodfella.

SPREAD THE WORD — Blogs with this profile picture and a bunch of random letters as the username have been following me on all my accounts in the last days, and I think it’s the blogs people are talking about, the ones that are giving people viruses; I almost opened one of those blogs by accident, SO SPREAD THE WORD AND IGNORE IMMEDIATELY AS SOON AS YOU SEE THAT PICTURE. Which is also sort of creepy.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. FUCK.
