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

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…

What else is there to say when two of Hip Hop’s Greats get together at a small venue in NY to peform, clasics hits such as NY State of Mind, or One Love??  TIMELESS!!

This is for all those who believe quality Hip Hop no longer exists.  This proves that good music hasn’t gone extinct, you just have to know where to look (mauriceandmarquess.wordpress.com (-; ).  Shouts out to Dom Kennedy and special shout out to J.Cole for not only lyrically lacing this track but for producing such a smooth beat.  I’m sure Bun B is proud of this dedication track.

As you have heard by now Atlantic Records has been holding Lupe Fiasco’s anticipated album “Lasers” hostage for some time now.  However, fans worldwide have decided not to stand idle while this happends and have started an online petition  requesting that Atlantic Records release the album.  As a thank you to his fans for their continued support, Lupe has released BMF (Building Minds Faster) and I think I speak for all Hip Hop fans when I say thank you Lupe for this jewel.
