hhhWHat up ya’ll. Good weekend, congrats to Richie and Autumn who got married on Saturday. El Capo and I did infact get stupid and retarded at the reception then he cuddled up to our mutual best Mexican friend Medina… yes homo. I’m pretty sure I teabagged Capo like Bruno did Eminem that night as well… pause… guess it was just my skin tone working against me. Also this fucking song was in my head the entire weekend. Kind of a little bit in love with Lykke Li right now. Would make my year if somehow Drake and her made a video for that remix.
I also just gave a really quick listen to Make$hift’s No Doze mixtape after the homie Ollie from Nickel Plated Bama co-signed it for me. Shit is pretty ill, def worth the listen. Grab the tape and follow Make$hift on twitter. Once I devote some more time to it, I’ll hit ya’ll back with the official review but from 1st listen it’s hot. He spit over Nothin But a G Thang, Get Busy the International Players Anthem and tons more so its worth checkin out.
new shit for ya’ll. I actually heard it for the 1st time like a month ago and just remembered about it again. Got that real ill classic feel to it and Eternia has some lovelies to look at.
My girl Big Lex did a nice little piece about Gone Fishing over at State News that came out a little while back. Definitely check out what she has to say and what I thought about it in the comments. If there is one person who I am jealous of when it comes to witnessing today’s hip-hop it is her. Think she saw both Common and the Cool Kids perform at State and Lupe in England? Lucky hoe. If you haven’t checked out Gone Fishing, you can get grab it here… pause.
The homie Big Sean and the rest of Finally Famous visited Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factor and partook in some fuckery with Drama (a more famous Drama than me of course). LOLz at Dougie almost eating the bike and Big Sean trying to ride a bike. You best believe the Code2Ave crew will be at the Wiz Khalifa show featuring Big Sean and Mike posner in a couple weeks. Get at us for details.
If you’re into funny style shit, complex put out a list of gayish, semi-homo, pause worthy lyrics from all over the hip-hop spectrum. It’s got me saying pause a lot more then usual as you can tell. Glad that I found a lot of lyrics that I used to SMH to on here. The one that came to my head right of the bat… pause… was #10 on there from Biggie’s the Wickedest which is still the hardest verse he ever did in my opinion. I do think that the part where he said “Biggie Smalls is the wickedest/Niggas say I’m pussy, I dare ya to stick ya dick in this” was more pause worthy to me than the part they posted on there. They could have even put “Diseases, big pleases, MCs, across the seas/It’s just the way I clutch my prey” on there. The whole song taken out of context does sound pretty gayish. But indeed check out the article.
Hope ya’ll grabbed the Fake Shore Drive mixtape last week, get it here if you haven’t. The amount of young talent in Chicago is sickening to me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, CHICAGO IS HOT RIGHT NOW. I wish I lived out there cause they got ill shit goin on every week this summer it seems. I’ll be out there this weekend and on the 27th for Rock the Bells though so I’m happy.
Also check out the latest Dr. Dre sighting in this Dr. Pepper ad, supposedly that beat will be on Detox, we’ll see… in a year or two.
It’s been a while since we posted a Jerkin video….
Check out the video for Walkin on the Moon which I fuck with on the reg… pause.
Shot outs to El Capo for contributing to this youtube crazy update.
What up deucer heads? Its your boy Drama with another week of Sunday School.
Drop some quick shits for ya. T.I. is not getting the most jail time in the world for a ridiculous amount of gun charges which I guess is cool. I always love seein famous people not getting the fullest punishment for being involved in some shit, that way they will never learn and I will always stay entertained. Least he’s got the support of the old cats over at Breakfast at Sulimay’s.
Pharrell flipped out on some fans (No Akon). He can spaz when he wants to, I completely understand where he might have been comin from. He was just looking out for the people in front, didn’t want them to get stampeded on like it was a world cup qualifier… too soon?
Andre 3000 billion got arrested for speeding the most… must have been ready to go…. right now. Least he took the title of “Fastest Rapper Alive” from Twista.
Hot new ish from Chester French, big ups to my new love interest “girl in video”. Think she might be Willa Holland. If anyone can confirm, that would be awesome. Here’s She Loves Everybody
Lemme share something that you may not have heard of, kinda old but still great. The Strange Fruit Project is soooo slept on. The Healing is one of my favorite albums of all time. Peep the video. Wish they would have done a video for You (The Only Ones) or Special, still this is another great track from The Healing. Let me know what you think.
Some funny style shit right here… like literally LMFAO. Might be bumpin this in the car immediately.
Be on the lookout for all your boys from Code 2 Ave at Wale’s ‘Attention Deficit’ Tour in Chi-Town on April 22nd. Should be amazing. We’ll keep you updated with all the Wale news cause hey, we’re fans and not affraid to say it.
(last week’s post)
Week 2, Drama’s hip-hop review, lets get it
Ahhhh, this is fiiiiyaaaah. As recently as the last 2 or 3 years and perhaps early into the most recent decade, producers began to realize and exploit the fact that putting 3, 4, 5 big ass names on a record would instantly make it hot. Some fell short…. Some did it big. Others were ridiculous and just institute fuckery which is right up my alley. I stay with this and I ain’t mad at em… except for Khalid, he givin us middle easterns a bad name.
In other news, NORE aka superthug is beastin dudes over the head at fat burger and beefin with Perez Hilton? Why? I donno, but I did learn a new saying “twitter gangsta”. I will not be fuckin with this story, not because Perez is gay but because hes gaaaaaaaaaaaay and I hate hearin or lookin at him. Not that there’s anything wrong with that… No homo
50 Cent has a new video game out. Dude is fightin terror, peep it. I feel safer knowing hes out there fighting for our freedom. No word yet as to if he kills Khalid in the final level.
Some updates from last weeks Drama
Chris Brown got Rihanna a bunch of ish for her b-day to make amends and rumor has it that SHE wants to get back together with the kid. More proof that females love bein treated badly. Some more info on why this popped off in the first place, I know ya’ll have heard that it might have been due to the h bomb but there has also been word that she might be preggers. All I know is that Chris needs to put out more of this and everyone will forget.
Speakin of preggers, Ray J is insane, I mentioned last week that that girl Danger might be pregnant…. dude confirmed that she is. Not sure if it’s his or not yet but I’m sure we’ll know soon. Dude out here claimin he tryin to find love on the show…. we know whats up, if they were gonna bring the fly honies to you, why wouldn’t you partake? That’s just cutting out the middle man.
Not sure if you haven’t heard or seen this yet but listen to it again anyway. Found this over at the Ill-Advised nonCONFORMIST a while back. Huge ups to Lia and Rosco, 2 of the illest fly scholar hipster chicks on the innernets. We at Code2Ave appreciate what you’re doin.
Also, if you’re lookin to find pretty much any remix of Day ‘N’ Night, check this. (check back once they resolve them bandwith issues ya dig?)
If you have anything you would like us to cover in our weekly updates, please hit me up on the twitters. Or catch us at the new Friday night spot, J. Gardellas, where oddly enough, hip-hop lives on the top floor.
(peep last weeks review here)
Drama’s Hip-Hop Breakdown. The boys (not men) at Code 2 bring to you a weekly column from one of the resident heads: Benny “Drama” Lava. Everything from hip hop news, trends, genres, album reviews, artist bios and eventually downloads (once I figure out how to use WordPress).
Big ups to Jewie Louis and the news. I get the majority of my hip-hop news from those fools and I been on Rosenberg for a few years now… pause. Something about Jews and hip-hop just works.
Anyway for the few dense headed suckas still left out there in the world that think that there is no fuckin on reality TV, I present to you For the Love of Ray J or as I like to call it Super Star Part 2 (ask for the video link). Rumor has it that Ray J Banged it out with Danger (tattoo face) and got the bitch pregnant. I would smash too.
Kid Cudi got tasered by Reebok during All Star weekend for wearin Nike’s. Suge Knight stays getting whooopd on now a days as well. How the mighty have fallen….
In other news Chris Brown’s camp put out a whack ass apology and Rihanna is mad bout it. I still contest that old boy was just krumpin and she got in the way. The pertinent questions:
1) Will CB have a career when this is over?
2) Will Rihanna’s forehead ever be the same?
3) Will this end soon so we can get on with our lives?
Jay ain’t havin it son.
Rick Ross and 50 Cent beef is still not registering on whogivesafuck.com, even with numerous diss tracks and family gettin involved. Shits gettin too personal off a bad look. And yeah, people say 50 has a reputation of ending other rapper’s careers, I figure if he wanted to end Ross’s career he would have been had signed him to G-Unit by now… BOOM.. roasted. And I don’t give a damn if he comes after me next, my baby momma can use a shoppin spree too ya dig?
Speakin bout beefin and 50, Cam and Juelz may have made amends so there may be more lightly talented rap commin out soon. I used to maaaaad fuck with the set back in my hustlin days, I will most likely again… hustle… not fuck with the set.
Most importantly Big L rest in peace. Its been a handful of years since he passed. I feel that Big L was to Mase and Cam’ron what Big Pun was to Fat Joe. Kept them in check, kept the shit raw and gully and most importantly didn’t have Lean Back come out. Children of the Corn what up? If he was alive today I don’t know how things would be but it is for damn sure that he was taken too early.
“The good die young, I ain’t eligable for that”
- 50 Cent.. damn, he got that right
I actually fuck with Aunt Jackie though, shot outs Jason Fox and yeah thats young JoJo Simmons in the video
