Memory Lane: Footage Of Tupac Explaining Why He Sags His Pants

by DG

It’s crazy to think Pac had such a powerful voice and message at that young of an age. I wonder what his thoughts would be on Wayne’s jeggings?

Slim was shot and killed yesterday in Atlanta. He was a member of Bricksquad and was just beginning his career. Hopefully his death serves as the wake up call we need. Below is Waka’s reaction via twitter, Atlanta news report and Lil Scrappy speaking on it.

by DG

This footage is obviously from 1996 but it’s the first time I’ve seen it. Both Nas and Ed Lover are stand up guys for doing that. Check out some rare photos of Pac here.


Memory Lane: Oh You Mad Cuz I’m Stylin On You?

I was telling Waves about my man back home beatin some dude up after battling him and this was the first thing that came to mind. This is a classic and I used the catch phrase for at least a year of my life.

Memory Lane: R.I.P. Terence Staten aka Young Gauge

by DG

It’s been 8 months since the death of Young Gauge, but he has remained alive through the music he left us. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish I could talk to him one more time. Let this serve as an example that life is precious and keep the people that you love close and let them know how you feel. If you would like to donate to his family click here for details.

Memory Lane: R.I.P. Stack Bundles (1982-2007)

by DG

Rayquon “Stack Bundles” Elliott would have been 29 years old today, but his life was cut short a few years back. His death is yet another example of the violence that has plagued our community for decades. Let his life be a lesson to us all that violence is not the only option. To download some of Stack’s mixtpaes click here (via Ice). The first time I heard of Stack was through Joe Budden, so it’s only fitting that I put Send Him Our Love below.

Diddy Dissing Pac

So apparently this was on the Bad Boy Vol. 4 mixtape but this is my first time hearing it. I’ll leave you with your own opinions on this one…

Memory Lane: The Origin of Big Sean’s ‘Supa Dupa’ Flow

by DG

The flow that Drake made popular on “Forever” and Jay & Yeezy mastered on “Hate” came from the westside of Detroit. To be more specific… Big Sean. The video above shows a newly signed Sean Don at the Def Jam offices back in 08′ kickin the ‘supa dupa‘ flow. This should be a testament to all up and coming artists that creating your own lane is the best way to go.

Memory Lane: The Jigga Man Sons Nick Cannon… Lmao

by DG

Nick Cannon dissed Charlamagne on wax earlier this week and it reminded me of this video. Not only did he get diss by Hov but Trey Songz & Jeezy paid him no mind as well. I have to give it up to Mr. Carey for keeping the camera rolling throughout his quest to get a ride. This situation serves as an example as to why a Nick Cannon diss record will never be taken serious.

Memory Lane: Drake’s Run (A Look Back At The Summer’s #1 Artist)

by DG

On October 24th, Drake is set to release his sophomore album Take Care. In preparation for the project he has released songs throughout the summer and gained more buzz with each one. It all started when DJ Khaled dropped “I’m On One” which many considered to be the summer’s official anthem. Drake wrote and vocally dominated the song and it began the type of run you don’t see too often. In an age where music is let go daily and forgot about hourly, he somehow managed to stay constant and put out good music consistently. Without an album or mixtape, Drake maintained his relevancy in a summer that seen dozens of mixtapes and albums from some of the games biggest stars such as; Beyonce, Big Sean, Game, Jay-Z & Kanye & Lil Wayne. Let’s take a look at how he did it below…

The first solo joint from Drizzy served as a warning to anyone that may have overlooked him. At the time many of us thought he took shots at the throne with lines like, “And I feel like lately I went from top 5 to remaining 5. My favourite rappers either lost it or they aint alive.” Looking back I still feel as if it was directed at Hov & Ye.

Drake – Dreams Money Can Buy

When he released this song the web blew up and it was the topic of discussion for a week or two (which is a long time in the era of trending topics). Everyone that had a voice put out a remix to the song and everyone that had an ex sent the “I’m just sayin, you could do better.” text.

Drake – Marvin’s Room

He basically took “I’m On One” and showed us what he would have done with it if it was his own. In the second verse he showcased his flow and dropped a bunch of ‘facebook status’ worthy lines that lived all summer long.

Drake – Trust Issues

This was the first official song that would be on Take Care. I don’t think it is what anyone expected and probably was the weakest effort of the summer. After a few listens it started to grow on me but I think it will be better in the context of an album.

Drake – Headlines

The highly anticipated Carter IV was due and Wayne really didn’t have a strong single other than “How to Love” which had been out for sometime then he dropped this. It isn’t a HUGE record but this will serve as every club and strip joint anthem for while to come.

Lil Wayne ft. Drake – She Will

Out of no where he released 2 songs (plus a remix) in one night. In typical Drake fashion; they described the strip club life. It feels as if he is deeper into his Toronto night-life roots on these, which is a good thing for anyone that remembers Comeback Season.

Waka Flocka ft. Drake – Round Of Applause

Drake – Club Paradise

Drake ft. Rozay – Free Spirit (Prod. by 40)

And here we are… A month after Watch The Throne dropped, a couples weeks after Carter IV did a million in 7 days, a week or two away from J Coles debut and Drake is still the center of attention. If these songs are any indication of what the album will sound like then we might be in for something special. Until then… “take care.”

“We been gone… your girlfriend will be reading my next blog.” – DG

Video: Method Man Speaks on Tupac and Biggie Smalls

Meth on Biggie and Pac from Gasface on Vimeo.

Everybody has an opinion about Biggie, Pac and why they died… But only this guy rapped with BIG on Ready To die, and only him would also make the trip to LA and work with Pac… That’d make his opinion worth more than… anybody’s, really. via Gasface
