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. Boogie and 6th Sense joined forces to create the 9-track “Just Do It: A Mixtape Ode to Nike,” which features freestyles over Just Blaze’s “Team USA” track and Wale’s Though the tape is rather short, the duo created and released it in just two days (pretty good turnaround time). Check out “Just Do It” right here and let us know what you think.
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.
Wow this mixtape is sick. I don’t even really know how to describe it besides ingenious and unconventional. I’m listening to this shit, and everyone in the office is turning their heads asking me who it is, and the answer is Kid Cudi so get familiar. Download this thing so that when he blows you can claim to be an original fan. “A Kid Named Cudi”- Kid Cudi
What’s good people? I know I’ve been kind of lacking on the commentary, but I’ve been mad busy which is a good thing. 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

Turns out super model Naomi Campbell is a little upset at the response people have shown over her getting away with her antics, you know beating the hired help with her blackberry, shouting at police officers at Heathrow..you know just the usual antics that super celebs get up to really when they think they are more important than they actually are. Naomi is worried that her charity work goes unnoticed because of all the tantrums she pulls. I think in a former life, her, Foxy and Kanye shared DNA http://www.ihiphop.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/naomi-campbell.jpg
Word is that Sean Combs may have impregnated Cassie who he allegedly broke up with, as if he doesn’t have enough to worry about right now. Check him out on his myspace blog the dude is on some serious BS, this is what happens when you go live on camera with no director…also rumor has it that the Didster is desperate to meet the Queen of England, but has yet to have that royal invite. I guess he wants to go and compare bling with her Majesty. http://www.ihiphop.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/diddy.jpg
A man with a plan and a hell of a way of getting his point across is Nyoil, the Staten Island based rapper who co -presents the BBC World Service show – WORLD HAVE YOUR SAY. With over 30 million people all over the world listening in to the show Nyoil has given people something to feast on talking about topics such as gentrification in Harlem and the recent debacle with Jesse Jackson and Presidential candidate Barack Obama. And mass media says Hip-Hop doesn’t have a voice…well Nyoil is proving to millions it really does.
