Sadat X “Throw The Ball” video / Unkut in XXL print

Check out this little clip for one of the best tracks from Black October, directed by Female Fun honcho Peter Agoston.

Elsewhere, Rafi and his trusty ban of “others” spotted an article in the latest print edition of XXL which lists as one of their “ten blogs worth bookmarking“, while Elliot Wilson confirmed my suspicion that eskay from Nah Right would be taking over the reigns from Brendan Frederick over at, which is good news considering eskay’s commitment to gutter New York shit over random flavor of the month Southern douchebags.

“southern douchebags”…haha yeah thats real, funny? nothing like a few hits on your web site to validate your myopic point of view. If you want to focus on new york gutter shit, great- but you must be feeling a bit threatened by these “douchebags” if you feel the need to throw salt instead of just offering up some positive content…

I think it’s great RA the rugged man kept his shirt on in the video.

dino, it was more the “random flavor of the month” Southern douchebags that I was talking about, rather than quality rappers like Scarface and Devin The Dude.

“I think it’s great RA the rugged man kept his shirt on in the video”

Likewise. Now if only we could convince Joey Crack to be as considerate.

“Random flavor of the month Southern douchebags” = priceless, but I sincerely hope you’re not referring to The Clipse. Hell Hath No Fury is a classic.

I wouldn’t really say Robbie feels threatened by the wack product that overwhelmingly reps the Southern part of America right now. He’s not a rapper from NY and it’s not like there’s a to steal his shine. As a hip-hop lifer, Dem Franchise Boys are going to turn you off, it’s just a matter of fact. We raised ourselves on quality rap music, and that shit’s just bad for the ears and the brain.

sza sorry for the grammar lesson, “brah”. i’ll try and keep it basic. rap music started as sing-a-long raps to disco/dance music…the music grew and evolved lyrically and musically: that is good. skylar, as a hip hop lifer i’m sure your familiar with Kool Herc; and by association party music. southern rap, snap music, or whatever, using your reference to dem franchise boys, has less to do with ditc or percee p than poison clan or tim smooth; but does that make it less hip-hop, less rap? does the area that creates a style then own that style? franchise boys are not competing with krs-one, this is a different type of music, influenced by rap music from the past, but not copying the music of the past. You raised yourself on what you knew, what was exposed to you; don’t confuse different with bad.
Full circle now, no disrespect robbie, your doin your thing. i love all different schools of rap music, though i do have preferences; one being southern/midwest rap from the early 90’s. Many of those artists are able to gain some respect/money in todays market because of the current marketability of southern artists, and they deserve every second/dollar of shine they can get. i just wish us rap heads would be a little more open minded sometimes.

If you’re familiar with the content of this particular site, you’ll notice that the hip-hop it’s most dedicated to is that eastcoast sound. I mean, check the interviews, the posts, the pics, the music, etc. Folks that frequent this site do so because it caters to their tastes. Sometimes the southern shit deserves to be shitted on. Some of it’s OK but if other southern douchebag flavors of the month gets put on blast for sounding like ignorant shit stew by folks who listen to Show & AG, you should know better. You should actually come to expect it.

It’s the comments section of an audioblog. We don’t have to respect shit! Just bring the bangers! Why you bringing clock radio speakers to the block party kid!

Comment by the SZA 12.27.06 @

we know robbie wasn;t talkin about the southern rappers of the 90’s .. dino is mega sensitive .. we just diss the new snap bullshyt on the radio . no shame
