What’s a summer without a hit single by everyone’s favorite rapper from the T.O.

In his first appearance  in-front of the home crowd in Washington D.C.,  the Wizards Rookie phenom teaches the NBA how to dougie and then goes  on to fall only one steal shy of  his first triple double in only his 3rd game and  ultimately leads the Wizards to their first win of the season by scoring 29 points and adding 13 assists and 9 steals.  Good work  John Wall AKA “Washington Wall”  AKA the “Great Wall of Chinatown”.

The often criticized Lebron “King” James adresses his critics in his new TV spot for Nike by asking “what should I do”….

During the filming of Transformers 3 on location in the Nation’s Capitol on October 11th a D.C. Police department SUV crashed into the 2010 Yellow Chevy Camaro known as “Bumblebee”. Despite the accident their were no serious injuries to the drivers (does Bumblebee require a driver LOL) of  both vehicles.

As a D.C. native and long time Transformers fan I have a funny suspicion that there is “more than meets the eye” here!  I suspect this  may have been the work of Megatron and the Decepticons…stay tuned…

That’s right   Maurice and Marquess have declared “Ashton Martin Music”  the official jam of the weekend!   Just because you don’t own an Ashton Martin doesn’t exclude you from bumping this joint in your Chevy Tahoe,  Saturn, or your Honda Accord,  hell bump this b*tch on your Ipod while riding the train and call it “Metro Music”.

The latest single from Rick Ross’ album “Teflon Don” features the vocals of Chrisette Michele along with Drake.  However, the real star of this track is the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League who produced the exceptional beat.   Make sure you crank this one up to fully enjoy the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s production as you bump this jam and enjoy the weekend. Peace!

Underground rapper and actor Mos Def has inked a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music imprint.  This is the latest in many big time signings for Kanye’s super stable of artists.  Mr. West recently signed one half of the group Clipse Pusha T.  This latest signing has many calling the G.O.O.D. music group the Miami Heat of the music industry.  The current stable of G.O.O.D. music artists  currently consists of Kanye West, John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Mos Def, Consequence,  and r&b legend Charlie Wilson just to name a few.

For those who are unfamiliar with  G.O.O.D. Music its not  a record label its essentially a production group which artists belong.  The group  helps each  artist find their own distribution deal.  For example, Kanye owns and belongs to G.O.O.D music but his distribution comes through Def Jam whereas Kid Cudi is a G.O.O.D. music artists but his distribution is through Universal Motown.

One thing is for certain this is G.O.O.D. news to hip hop fans that look forward to hearing Mos Def’s lyrics and vocals over Kanye’s classic production.  I know personally I would love to see a G.O.O.D. Music group album along the lines of Young Money’s  “We Are Young Money”.  I guess one can dream…LOL…
