Me and the homie Dallas Penn caught Rakim Allah doing a free show in Brooklyn as part of the Summer Concert series in New York. I’ll be posting my written review later, but in the meantime you can witness me forgetting how to perform The Wop and doing some serious Rap Hands in between the God MC rapping.
LL clearly read my article about him and decided to get his shit together for this guest spot on Action Bronson‘s remix. Pity that the rapping mummy Lloyd Banks is on this instead of Curtis though. SAAB Stories drops next week.
Footage of Action Bronson‘s recent visit to Australia, where he enjoyed local trees, frosted beverages and the simple pleasures of riding a jet ski in between almost getting bagged-up for bombing the suburbs.
I’m not even going to attempt to explain who the Internets Celebrities are – that’s what the ‘About’ section of their site is for, dummies! Okay, since you’re clearly too lazy and/or hungover to crawl over to your laptop and wipe the Cheezel dust from your fingers, I’ll provide a Twitter-proof rundown in less than 140 characters: Dallas Penn, Rafi Kam and Casimir Nozkowski made Ghetto Big Mac, Bodega and Checkmate, hit Sundance, and got 3 million views in the process.
