The good news is that it’s been a productive day today… finished up and mixed this Beautiful 2 joint, did the photoshoot (thanks to Khalil Stroman Photography Inc. for the hook up), put together the cover art and here it is for your listening pleasure today, just as I promised yesterday. The not-as-good news is that it looks like I’m gonna miss the Freeway / Jake One show here in Philly at the Troc tonight (sorry I can’t make it but thanks for putting me on the list anyway, hommie… I know y’all gonna rock it). Well, just as with the last Beautiful joint I did, I’m real happy about this one. Make sure to let me know if you dig this kind of schitt, ‘cuz I’m itchin’ to drop number three very soon if you want more.
Any NBA hoops fans out there checkin’ in at THAT REAL SCHITT? Probably not many, if any. Well, although NFL football is my number one passion as a sports fan, I follow teh pro basketball pretty tough too. Playoffs start today, and I got Cleveland and Lebron James to win it all this year. Why? Well, because I love the cohesion of this team right now… these dudes are TOGETHER (I actually thought about changing my pick because they’ve been going overboard with the clowning around on the bench- kinda juvenille and not the right look for a champion- but f*** it, they’re having fun and that swagger may actually help them when schitt gets tight). The Lakers will be hard to beat with Bynum back, but I dunno… I just like the Cavs, man. And as great as Kobe is, I like Lebron over him at this point in their careers. It would be a great matchup in the finals anyway you look at it (I don’t think David Stern would have it any other way). Darkhorses- watch out for those Nuggets out west. I’d like to see Atlanta shock somebody in the east… I think it’s possible in the 2nd round. Ultimately, though… Cavs over Lakers in seven (homecourt will make the difference).
