LeBron

A little sumptin', sumptin' for my NBA heads who are enjoying the 2009 Playoffs....by the way, I'm hoping for Cavs/Nuggets..

Before tip-off of every game, LeBron walks over to the scorer's table, puts powder on his hands, claps and tosses the excess into the air and throws on his game face. It's basically become an iconic symbol of King James' arrival. This commercial pokes a little fun at his routine....funny ish.. -Interstate P

The Robin Hood Foundation Raises Over $72M-Breaks Record

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last night, The Robin Hood Foundation hosted a gala at the Jacob Javits Center. For those not in the know, The Robin Hood Foundation (RHF) is an organization whose principle goal is to end poverty in New York. They fund a ton of things around the city including shelters, job-training seminars, meal centers, medical services and educational programs. In a recessed economy, they fell back from all the bells and whistles they usually go with for this event, but still took in over 72 million dollars. In the course of the evening, a record was made as well. Billionaire financier George Soros pledged 50 million dollars over a 2 year period for the charity, the largest single donation to a charity of the RHF's kind. So extra special shout out to him for helping out and focusing the spotlight on such an important cause!! -Interstate P

Hip Hop Sisters is a movement of women who would like to change the face of Hip Hop and the way that women are perceived in society today. We strive to bring the essence of Hip Hop back to its originality. There are too many negative images about women in Hip Hop, and it is affecting the younger generation. We need to show the world that a woman can achieve greatness, without selling our souls to the negativity that is put out there to destroy our culture. So in short, our mission is to promote mental growth, understanding, instilling self awareness in our sisters and using the Art of Hip Hop to help the youth find their voice.

These are just dope! Damn near perfect replicas of AKAI's MPC2000XL sampler and EMU's SP1200 drum machine, housing a 4GB flash drive. I was hype when I saw these just on the strength that it looked like you could actually push the buttons, like for real..lol. Unfortunately, you can't really get your Pete Rock on but you'd still be extra-fresh and for 40 bucks you can at least strike up good conversation with a real producer! -Interstate P
