In Washington, the first thing people tell you is what their job is. In Los Angeles you learn their star sign. In Houston you’re told how rich they are. And in New York they tell you what their rent is.

Nice. (Sydney is like New York.)

Curren$y - 4 Hours & 20 Minutes(Ride To H-Town) feat. Killa Kyleon

Kyleon played it cool in the background while Spitta was killin’ it…but as soon as it was his turn the charisma gets turned on instantly

Fuck yeah!! This is great. So glad they rescued Killa Kyleon from that mid-00s htown ‘movement’ media machine — always one of the most underrated dudes from that era (but what happened to magno??)

bonus: Magno & Killa!!

Jet life to the next life. Dope indeed. Also Houston cars and skyline are some nice cityporn.


I was taught only reach for the heat if you’re bussin’
So when I lift this shirt that’s the end of discussion.

Slim Thug, “Click Clack,” Already Platinum (2005)

"Chuck" is a great show, and tonight’s episode was good, but I really wish they’d all pay heed to the Slim Thugga mantra. All that waving around guns when clearly no one has any intention of pulling the trigger gets a bit silly.



A lot of rap niggaz be trying to play hardKnowing damn well that they lying and they fraudThey talk that hard shit when somebody press recordWhen there’s beef in the streets they run to their body guard

Speaking of Slim Thug and popular entertainment: Draco, weren’t you taught only reach for the wand if you’re cursing?

My dear boy, let us have no more pretence about that. If you were going to kill me, you would have done it when you first Disarmed me, you would not have stopped for this pleasant chat about ways and means.

Basically, tonight’s Chuck needed some Albus Dumbledore to sort everyone’s shit out.

We may presume this to be overly didactic, but it’s what Slim dishes out knowledge about – Pro Tools, questionable A&R guys, rappers who sell out of their home scene – that keeps everything grounded. He’s bitching about work, and people ruining the vibe and cohesiveness of a neighborhood. Malkmus did the same thing. Think of this as Crooked Game, Crooked Game.
