The 2nd installment of the “For Fucking/Lovers” series tells a similar story to the 1st one, this time from a young lady’s perspective. Though she remains nameless, her story may resonate with many:Girl meets boy, boy charms her & she falls for him. After he hits, she’s left alone to simply play the game until she loves another….Though not everybody’s got a lover to keep them company on the Lover’s Holiday, we all have loved, been lovesick & almost all of us have made love. This is the soundtrack for fucking/lovers.Download here.
Chicago MC drops his 1st official mixtape & it’s definitely worth its weight in good music. An impeccable beat selection alongside superior lyricism usually equates to a solid project & this falls nothing short of it. Though it is on the shorter side with only 5 tracks (especially hearing plenty of individual tracks from the guy & knowing what he can truly offer), it does make up for it’s lack of more by filling what he does give us chock full of honesty, great wordplay & a soulful, everyman relatability.
Gyasi sound gives off a smooth, hip-hop vibe that many of today’s buzzing rappers coming out of the Chi seem to be lacking right now in place of bangers that are friendlier to Southern ears than the thinking man. The only thing that makes this 1st impression any better is knowing that the journey’s just begun. Click here to download & feel free to stream below. In the meantime, tell a friend or two that that real shit’s coming back.

I’m not a saint. I’m not perfect. My life isn’t together as it should be. I can admit that. But yet that isn’t a crutch for me to rest on and be ok with. I consistently want to be a better person then I was yesterday….

The Internet - 4 Bonus Songs EP
The most underrated band of the year so far, have a new EP with the creative title “4 Bonus Songs EP”. The 4 tunes didn’t make the album, because the band had some “technical differences with the physical release on Purple Naked Ladies”. Recently The Internet also released a documentary that captures the making of Purple Naked Ladies. You can watch the documentary here and stream their new EP below:

The war drums for war on Iran grew louder today.
Israel is counting on the influence of right-wing extremist views in US politics to bring pressure to bear on Obama to fall into line with a possible Israeli attack during the election campaign this fall.
In Israel, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said that Iran is “getting ready to produce a missile with a range of 10,000 kilometers… That’s the Great Satan. It was aimed at America, not at us.”
And, the Israeli IDF Intelligence Chief Aviv Kochavi said Iran already has enough uranium to build 4 nuclear bombs and could build one within a year.
Also today, Fairness and Accuracy in Media (FAIR) blasted ABC News for ”a blatantly propagandistic report on the supposed threat from Iran.”
Just yesterday, a “bipartisan” task force of conservative Democrats and neo-conservatives who served in the Bush administration urged President Obama to prepare for an “effective surgical strike against Iran’s nuclear program.”
