In the last few days a staggering number of verses caught my attention that was somehow about making "it" happen as the only way to, you know, make it happen.

I'm talking everything from Eminem to The Soft Pack to TV On The Radio. I didn't write them all down, and it could just be me. This Mighty Mighty Bosstones song was the tipping point though.

It remains to be seen if anybody outside of my house actually heard Pin Points and Gin Joints. No doubt, it slides in nicely with the run of classic mid-90s albums the Bosstones pumped out before crashing the mainstream with Alicia Silverstone.

Dicky Barrett may have a psuedo-day job, but he knows what it takes to get there, because he's still Dicky-friggin-Barrett.

Skank on, my friends.

Who knew white-boy rappers could be so good for a Saturday night jam? Granted, Astronautilus isn't new to the game but that beat made me stand up a little straighter and then go into a schizophrenic funk walk that scared the shit out of the child I was holding.

This album has been sitting on my computer for a couple weeks and I just got around to listening to it. I apologize for the negligence. This is the first track on DANCEHALLHORNSOUND!!!!, and it makes me want to worship the rest of the mixtape, which you can grab for whatever you do or don't want to pay for it.  

I don't know shit about DJ Fishr Pryce, but you can jump headfirst into his world by clicking that link. Whatever he did to this mixtape, it worked out really well.

Now, it's the weekend, get off yer computer and go do something.
