Famed mixtape DJ Mick Boogie has recently hosted a slew of tapes with artists like Little Brother, Talib Kweli, Young Chris and Busta Rhymes. Amidst his DJ duties, Boogie took a break to head to the Nike headquarters and was apparently inspired by the visit.

Now wouldn’t that be something, the Mighty O who has spoken out her show about cheating spouses/partners on many an occasion cheating on her own man? I mean it was a lil suspect when she was holidaying in Italy with her BGF Gayle and Tyler Perry. But you get used to Steadman not being around anyway, but rumors are circulating more than usual this time.

These tracks are from Monday and Tuesday, but I’ve been having problems with word press, so I couldn’t hook you guys up with the links until today. Although I’m a little late I got 14 tracks for you to make up for my tardiness. I’ll probably hook you guy’s up with a big Dose tomorrow as well so be on the lookout. I’ve been kind of slacking this week, and I wanted to apologize to you guys as well as promise to step my game up. You know the routine; if you hear something you like, download the thing. Listen to everything and broaden your horizons already. I don’t fuck with tracks that aren’t nice. Enjoy Bitches!

After the New Yorker mag featured a cartoon of the future US President on it’s cover which upset quite a few people, this is what the man himself had to say to CNN… “It’s a cartoon … and that’s why we’ve got the First Amendment,” Obama said. “And I think the American people are probably spending a little more time worrying about what’s happening with the banking system and the housing market, and what’s happening in Iraq and Afghanistan, than a cartoon. So I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it.” “I’ve seen and heard worse,” he said. “I do think that in attempting to satirize something, they probably fueled some misconceptions about me instead. But that was their editorial judgment.” http://www.ihiphop.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/barack-obama-bw.jpg BObama
