yeah, i dug that one - here's my favorite diss from com, personally (and you know i'm a big fan of cube)




i don't think we'll see another like ether: 2 titans with over a decade of history,  the '99 summer jam with takeover, nas spending nearly 5 minutes breaking jay down to molecules and dropping it on his birthday 


but if you wanna talk about petty ones, super ugly was enough for jay's mom to make him apologize for it on the radio, haha! i love that story.  


pusha just got me going with that image, the story of OJ beat, the likely-taken-from-MAGAkardashian's-TMZ-plug or some shit info & all...i was honestly trying to think of the last time i thought a battle got that personal, and all that came to mind was this

In 1988, the summer A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master was released, New Line Cinema sued BMG, the music label of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. The rap duo’s second album He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper had been released earlier that year, and they made a video for “Nightmare on My Street,” a tribute, in the pair’s signature goofy style, to the Elm Street dream demon himself, Freddy Krueger. Originally, they’d been in talks to produce the video in conjunction with the studio, but the studio instead opted to commission “Are You Ready for Freddy?” from The Fat Boys. When BMG tried to release the video anyway, even managing to air it on MTV a few times, New Line sued and won, and the court ordered all copies of the video destroyed.

For three decades, the video was assumed lost. Jazzy Jeff told Uproxxearlier this year that his then-girlfriend had mistakenly taped over his copy, and that Will Smith’s father had reportedly lost his.



how cool is that? and here's the Fat Boys with their own freddy tribute back in the day 



happy halloween y'all!

im out of the loop musically this year but this friday's looking like an AOTY contender for me, phew




Gibbs x Madlib's last shit - Pinata - still stays in heavy rotation for me, and that was like 2014.  Madlib hasn't put this much effort into his collaborations since early DOOM stuff, shit's so good
