This is one of my favorite tracks I’ve produced for my man Shakespeare. Peep the live performance which took place at Tonic in Manhatten in ’06.
LOL…I’m not sure whether to comment too much on the history of this track, but I’ll go ahead and say BK Cyph version > Ross Version.
I really didn’t think this fight was going to happen with all the talks of the money not being right and many skeptics calling it a circus show. But low and behold, Oscar pulled off what is to be his last fight on December 6th against P4P #1 Manny Pacquiao. An official announcement will be made tomorrow and looks as if they’ll both be meeting at the Welterweight limit of 147 pounds.
Part of me is thinking, Pacquaio is too fast and too ferocious for Oscar at this point of his career. But the other part of me knows Oscar comes to fight and if he comes in fight night at say 154, can Manny hang against left hooks coming from a Junior Middleweight?
It’s going to be an interesting next 4 months.
Oscar De La Hoya, boxing’s biggest star, will announce Thursday that he will meet pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao on Dec. 6, two sources close to the fight told ESPN.com.
Top Rank’s Bob Arum, whose company promotes Pacquiao, would not confirm a deal was in place for what would be the year’s biggest fight, but he did tell ESPN.com that De La Hoya would host a media teleconference at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday to announce his opponent.
“We’ll know who is he is fighting tomorrow,” Arum said Wednesday from Youngstown, Ohio, where he was attending a promotional event for the Kelly Pavlik-Bernard Hopkins fight that he is co-promoting with De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. “I made a commitment that I wouldn’t say anything and that tomorrow there would be an announcement. I’m not allowed to make any comments. Everything will be clear on Thursday.”

The 90′s to me were not only the Golden Years for Hip Hop, but was also sort of the same for the Mixtape game. NY was runnin shit with tapes from Clue, Doo Wop, S&S, Ron G, Craig G (not the rapper), Camilo…and the list goes on. I ran into a pretty dope spot on line called Know Good Music where I found some mixtapes I thought I’d never see again (being some friends mysteriously lost them after borrowing them for an entire Summer).
Here are a few gems I know you 90′s heads will definitely appreicate.

Damn, this is the one thing a parent never wants to go through, outliving your kids. Word got out that Dre’s son Andre Young Jr (20 years old) was found dead in his room after a night out this weekend. A toxicology is still pending.
My condolences to Dre’s entire family.
