Recreating Mike Flo

| December 15, 2008 | 0 Comments

In Osaka, Japan.

If you’re a frequent reader of the site, then I’m sure you’re familiar with the Mike Flo picture that I always use for his posts (if not, check it out here), where he’s flipping the bird at a Chicago Police Department vehicle.  Well, FSD reader Timothy Mullin, who is studying abroad in Osaka, Japan took some time out from partying with hot Japanese women and drinking Sake’ on a Suzuki (we in Osaka Bay) to snap this quick flick.

Tim writes:

I’ve read your site everyday for about the past year or so…I’m studying abroad in Osaka, Japan and your posts help me stay up on the chi music scene – anyways last night I was out and had an opportunity for a pic that I couldn’t pass up. Enjoy.

I just had to post it.   Check out the Mike Flo pic below for reference.

Man, it’s been a short while since we’ve had something new from the Molemen’s Astonish here on FSD, but thankfully he’s back with something new for us.  Here the always-smooth (Pause?) emcee drops “Next Time”

Video: Kanye West on SNL

I had a lot of people hit me up about this last night. It’s definitely a lot different than what you’re used to for an SNL performance. I can’t believe the NBC/Universal Gods haven’t deleted this yet. Oh well, enjoy while you can if you missed it live.

“Love Lockdown” above and “Heartless”/”Pinocchio Story” after the jump.

Props to the Nation

Add 2 – "The Menace Returns"

| December 13, 2008 | 0 Comments

I remember Add telling me about the project he was working on with producer Jaguar Skills (Hoooo!) a while back, so I was anxious to hear this as I enjoy both Add and Jag.  The project is currently untitled and they are wrapping it up now – below is the first leak.  Also, be on the look out for some Add 2 material with THE Twilite Tone (who KILLED it last nigh at Com’s show) and The Bakery.

Something new from JDP.  He snags a Luda line and makes it a hot song.

As I mentioned earlier Common had a secret show last night in New York City in conjunction with NBC.com. My friend who was in attendance told me Kanye unexpectedly showed up to perform “Heartless” and “Robocop”. You can catch a little bit of his appearance here at the end.

His show in Chicago is TONIGHT.

Psychodrama feat. Kanye West – "Nirvana"

| December 12, 2008 | 0 Comments

Here’s another Holiday rarity for you.  This one comes from the legendary Chicago trio known as Psychodrama and features Kanye Tudda.  A lot of people ask about PD quite frequently, so hopefully we’ll have more from them coming soon…I actually just connected with Buk [II] last night.

This joint was produced by Firewater and featured on Mike Love’s Universal Sessions mixtape from a few years back, and has kind of flown under the national radar.  I figured I’d post for those who don’t have it.

I’m waiting on an untagged version, but until then all I have in the Mike Love (echo 3x) version, so if you have a fresh one, please feel free to send over.
