DivineRule – (CLUE) WHO KILLED 2PAC and BIGGIE SMALLS?

You have the most to lose when you are ahead of the game.  The higher you are in this world the more people want to hate, the haters are always out for blood. Believe me I know this, I have always been a go getter, a really hard worker, I don’t believe in failure and if you tell me I can’t do something I work even harder because boy to I love to prove people wrong and I usually do.  People don’t like confidence because the majority of this world doesn’t have it, so much insecurities in this world, people could actually learn a thing or two from the confident few but they would rather hate, sad but true.  I think it’s just easier for people to focus on the negative, I wish I understood why, I can sometimes rationalize it in my head but I just don’t live in that type of head space.  I know what it’s like to feel like there is just this dark cloud hovering over your head at all times but that’s no way to live, it’s a shit way to live people.

I think the lives of Tupac and Biggie tell a true story of what happens when people live in a hateful head space, when jealousy and rage take over and you can’t appreciate someone else’s hustle.  To much competition since the beginning of time, how do we get rid of that, we probably never will but for a few of us and hopefully more and more as time goes on the word competition can leave our vocabulary. Who knows, all I know is I don’t focus on what everyone else is doing, I focus on my grind and what I need to do to keep pushing forward and eliminate haters, your haters are actually your biggest fans so learn to love them hard working badasses of the world, learn to love em’!

Thanks DivineRule for this jam and a reminder not to be afraid of the hustle, but watch your back if you got somethin’ special!

DOSVEC – Somebody Nasty

Yes, I realize we have heard this track remixed a lot lately but this has to be my favorite so far, Somebody Nasty the perfect mashup sprinkled with a little bit of everything and it couldn’t be more perfect on this day of parties, independence, hot guys and girls, fireworks, and getting wild and crazy about how independent we all are today!

Anything mashed with Biggie has my attention no matter what.  Probably one of the most flawless hip-hop artists of our time, with a flow like no other.  I study this cat everyday to get on the level of skill that he had, but DAMN it ain’t easy!  Can you imagine what hip-hop might be if Biggie was still around, and I am not hating at all on what’s getting put out today, but I definitely think things would be different, probably a crazy take over if you ask me. Nasty Girl was lifted from Nasty Boy, the Life After Death album, but completely different musical arrangement and lyrics.  Nasty Girl ranked #1 in the UK in 2005, pretty dope to be #1 in the UK all the way from Brooklyn.  I love it when new artists and DJ’s today remember the greats and include them in their music, it shows mad respect!

I go, on and on and on and
Don’t take them to the crib unless they bon’in
Easy, call em on the phone and
platinum Chanel cologne and
I stay, dressed, to impress
Spark these bitches interest..”

DOSVEC/DJ Whatt definitely knows what he is doing, mashups can be hit or miss if you don’t know what your doing and when you are working with a top charted track and Biggies vocals and lyrics then you better be on your “A” game, just sayin’.  I don’t think I could have come by a better track to jam out to today, it screams everything I want out of my independence; Wild, Crazy and Free!

Enjoy!
