There have been a lot of rumors circulating online that Frank Ocean will release his album “Channel Orange” tonight. This wasn’t expected originally but neither was his coming out to the public. Looks like Mr. Ocean is full of surprises these days. Stay tuned for more info or check iTunes as the rumor says the album will drop at 12:30 AM Est.
First off let’s start by saying that this song is much more than just a good song. The way Kanye West delivers messages and metaphors throughout the whole thing while repeating some lyrics and still making it sound good is amazing. The beat is produced by Hit-Boy who has always been known for killing it on the production side of things. DJ Khaled does some screaming in the beginning so he’s automatically “featured” on it. The opening line (“Can’t a young ni**a get money any more, tell PETA my mink is draggin on the floor, can I have a bitch without no flaws, come to meet me without no draws”) alone makes a huge statement right there. You automatically know that Kanye is coming with it, straight rap, no weird stuff. “I’m from where shorties fucked up, double cupped up, might even kill somebody and YouTube it” gives a nice description of where Kanye West is originally from which is Chicago (considered the murder capital of the US by some). ”Only Ni**a I got respect for is Wiz, and I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim, round the same time she had fell in love with him, well thats cool baby girl do your thing, lucky I didn’t have Jay drop him from the team”. We all know what that line is talking about… Wiz Khalifa, Kim Kardashian, and Chris Humphries all in one take. He respects Wiz, admits to falling in love with Kim Kardashian, and takes a shot at Chris Humphries by saying that Jay-Z owns part of the New Jersey Nets but Kanye and Jay-Z are “La Familia” or family in common terms. Then we have “Don’t talk about style cause I’ll embarass you, shut the fuck up when you talk to me before I embarass you”, this line really lets everybody in the game know that nobody is on Kanye’s level right now when it comes to fashion, music, cars, girls, or anything. In the end Kanye concludes the song by introducing the title and says “Way too cold, I promise you need some theraflu”. I’m sure we can all relate the word cold and Theraflu, if not then the rest must be really confusing. Once again this song was a masterpiece and “Mercy” with Pusha T, Kanye West, Big Sean, and 2-Chaaaaaaaainz drops at midnight. G.O.O.D.
New song from Grammy winner John legend featuring the always great Ludacris called “tonight”. You most def want to have this in your iPod. In the image above Ludacris is wearing one of our RK Cursive Red/Black tees which is available for purchase here.
Just got word that Lebron James got sent home early during the Heat’s morning shoot around. He was experiencing flu-like symptoms and will be a game time decision against Kobe and the Lakers. Hopefully the king can play.
For those of you anticipating the release of the Air Jordan XI “Concords” they will be available tonight at midnight. In order to cop these just log onto Crooked Tongues and they will have you covered. A very highly anticipated pair.
Just so happened to be on Twitter and saw that Rick Ross posted this little Tweet-Video of him in his suite for the Mayweather/Ortiz fight. Always doin’ it big like a Bawse should. Can’t wait for this fight to go down, my money is on Mayweather of course. Not gonna pick up the spare?
This release isn’t as highly anticipated as most according to a lot of sneaker reviews but this is just a reminder that tonight most sneaker stores will be opening up at midnight for the release of the True Blue 3′s. Make sure to get in line early cause no matter what the Jordan number, people go nuts for these drops.
You bet your sweet candy ass they are. Sure the whole Big Three just came together (or the Heatles, I like that one best) this year but that doesn’t matter any more. They are in the finals and I’m pretty sure if you’ve made it this far then the game should pretty well figured out by now. Here are some highlights from the big three throughout the playoffs and as they move their way to the top. I’m rooting for the HEAT and you should know that if you’ve been reading this blog on the regular. Lots of respect to Dirk, but this time it’s an all out battle. Miami Heat 2010-2011 NBA champs…I’m callin’ it now.
Tip-off is at 9 P.M. Eastern (that’s 6 o’ clock for you West Siders)
