Stamina‘s album, The Jersey Devil, is inching closer to completion. Look out for it late Spring. Meanwhile, Epiphany Blue is in the beginning stages for his second video, “Feel Us Flow”, featuring Stamina. Hopefully this will set off 2004 as the return of good hip-hop.
Speaking of good hip-hop, the Madvillian album featuring the collaboration of Madlib and MF DOOM is due to drop March 23, 2004. Check out their animated video for “All Caps” in the video section.
Jaylib’s “McNasty Filth” (that crazy track that set off Logrithmic Radio‘s week one) was given an all-new mix down and now sounds better and bumps harder than the version that appears on the album “Champion Sound”. The video for McNasty Filth has been completed, featuring Madlib, Dilla, Frank-N-Dank, J-Rocc, the entire 805 crew, and a whole lot of strippers.
Logrithmic is featured in an article by Sam Passow titled “Success” which gives various views of what hip-hop artists consider success. Read it here.
Busta Rhymes has inked a deal with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath.

Well, Kanye’s album dropped and I had the pleasure of listening to it second hand. I find it funny that an album has six hot songs and people say that it’s hot. I also had the pleasure of listening to Pete Rock’s “Soul Survivor 2″. Yeah, Posta Boy has a song on it but at least the beat matches the personality. It wasn’t like listening to Kweli and Common rocking the most commercial sounding beat on the album. Check out some notes on what makes a classic album. I don’t know if Pete’s is a classic album but Kanye really needs to step his game up. Pete Rock is still running it.
What’s the deal with Puffy looking to purchase an NBA team? Has this become a hip-hop fad?
Week 3 of Logrithmic Radio and Boxxer’s Block are not up yet due to a combination of virus problems and laziness.
Yesterday marks the fifth anniversary of Big L’s death. I remember.
Wesley Clark dropped out so obviously you can’t “Vote Clark!” anymore. But Dennis Kucinich is surely the next best person to go up against Bush.

Thanks for all the support and positive feedback towards Logrithmic.com. I’m still mad at Soundclick for upgrading their system leaving all my beat and song links directing users to Soundclick. I’m working on it.
Due to my everlasting boycott I did not see the Grammy’s last night. I heard Outkast won album of the year which just prolonged my boycott ten more years. Where was Jean Grae?
She was here in Week 2 of Logrithmic Radio and Boxxer’s Block.
Are you a rapper? An emcee? You’re only 10 percent complete. Read what makes up a classic album and why so many emcees fail. It is very informative and a must-read for any artist.

Logrithmic.com has arrived and Brotha Afron has set it off with an installment of Brotha Afron Speaks on the subject of religion.
I also put up the first installment of Logrithmic Radio and Boxxer’s Block. It features new Jaylib, Kanye West, Dead Prez and many others. I met one of my idols the other day, 88 Keys. Check him out on Myspace.
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been watching Rawkus Records clean out their office. The word is that they are officially closing as of January 31st. See y’all at Interscope.
Check out the video of Common and Kanye West with Dave Chapelle. And did y’all see the The Niggars?
Vote Clark in March!
