Elzhi breaks down a piece from his track with Royce on his album The Preface called "Motown 25". Honest to God, the dude was spittin' so much in that verse I could hardly tell what the hell he was sayin.  Elzhi is a monster.  Props to the "Syllable Scientist".

The Big Homie D and I went to the Black Milk album release party at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit and like I said before, one of the craziest hip-hop experiences I've had in my life.  I feel blessed we were able to get some footage, especially of this excellent tribute to a few of hip-hop's fallen Detroit soldiers.

I still have alot more footage to post, here's a few you may not have seen yet:

Video: Black Milk opens his set with "Long Story Short", "365" and "Welcome"

Video: Black Milk performs "Give The Drummer Some", "Shut It Down" and a remix of a song I can't seem to make out.  ITS FIRE THOUGH! lol

Video: Black Milk performs "Deadly Medley with Royce Da 5'9" & Ezhi and "Losing Out" with Royce as well.

One of the best hip-hop shows I've seen all year and quite possibly the best hip-hop experience I've had my entire life.

In Episode #122 of the HoodHype show, Major and I had a bit of a conflict when the subject of live hip-hop shows came up.  My stance has always been that hip-hop acts just seem to generally lack that feeling you get listening to their albums.  They have always lacked any sort of real stage presence and the ability to completely captivate.  Let me validate my opinion here. I've seen a few shows.  Shows you'd expect to be crazy like Outkast, the Hard Knock Life Tour, Busta Rhymes, Kid Cudi, Jay-Z & Eminem etc etc etc.  And while they all were entertaining, they always seemed like they were missing a lot.  Overblown vocals, an emotionless, straight-faced DJ and a giant LED screen can only go so far, know what I mean?

Not clear if those one is going to appear on Bar Exam 3, but damn Royce chewed this one up and spit it out in a mere 1:18.

Here's a brief cut from an interview Royce did for the book How To Rap: The Art & Science of the Hip-Hop MC.  He's saying flow is more important than subject matter.  In my opinion, as a music fan, subject matter is more important to me on a much larger scale than flow.  I agree with what he said, they're both important...but damn man, subject matter.  I need stories man.  What about you?

Shady Aftermath is doing themselves a great disservice if they are not signing Slaughterhouse.  Lyricism is making a huge comeback and Royce and the rest of the Slaughterhouse have a lot of em lol.

Spotted this cut over @ Nahright, and apparently this track will appear on Talib & Hi-Tek's The Re:Union project, as well as Statik's 100 Proof: The Hangover.

Part 1 of Episode #100 of the HoodHype show!  We're 4 years old!  This special episode features some FIRE music, our favorite clips from past episodes and an exclusive interview with Royce Da 5'9"!  We had to split the full three hour show into two parts so we didn't load up your iPods, Zunes and computers off the jump.  Part 2 is comin up next! Don't forget you can subscribe for free in iTunes so the show automatically goes to your iPod! Or you can subscribe with your Microsoft Zune!
