Productively Stoned Mixtape Vol. 1……..Christmas came early
THIS THAT SHIT I DO LIKE
Ive sat on this idea for years. I’ve always been a procrastinator, lately I’ve been having a hard time differentiating if I’ve been procrastinating or just scared, maybe even selling myself short. I have tons and tons of things sitting in my head that I never do. Don’t know why. What am I waiting for? I always said man wait till I get this or this and I get it and I still underestimate myself. I just never think my bullshit is up to par with the rest of the bullshit out. I don’t know why “Loiter Squad” & “Ridiculousness” is going into season 2, Chief Keef has 14 million views of a video of him and his friends in his grandmas living room, & the dudes that made the ratchet girl anthem in their webcam are touring. Not to take anything from them they just had something they believed in and just did it. They gave the world something. I wanna give you guys something to , but I don’t wanna give you bullshit. Also they didn’t wait for anybody. I’ve been sitting on ideas like, ugh maybe somebody will come with the vision the management the budget the guidance, but fuck that I think it’s all here. I want to give people something they can feel connected to not a gimmick or a character but genuine personality, Something different. I’m in a weird point in my life and do to my last name it’s weird people in my life. I realize nobody’s gonna look out cause they think people are looking out and everybody wants to say they have my best interest and put there hand on my shoulder not for actual guidance but just in case so they can lie and say they’ve been there since the beginning. The most helpful people around me now are my close group of friends.

A video came out this morning that showed Chief Keef affiliate and GBE member Lil Reese stomping out a girl. I don’t know if this is a surprise cause i assume by now we all know that Chief Keef and GBE are savages. This video is not the 1st and most definitely not the last of random candid cell phone videos of these GBE kids. The first was when a audio tape of Young Chop dissing Kanye West came online hours after the “Don’t Like Remix” , then the candid of Lil Jojo running up on Lil Reese and him yelling “Imma Kill You” several hours before he actually was, & the self leaked photo of Chief Keef himself getting blown by some groupie. The internet is going to kill these kids career before it starts, and they’re so ignorant they don’t even understand that their friends and themselves too are the ones doing it. I love seeing kids my age doing good, but i also hate to see kids my age not appreciate their blessings. So today I thought of a list of things Lil Reese, Chief Keef, & all of GBE could do to take the Glory Boys to the Glory Land.
- Move out of Chicago.
- Delete all social media.
- Stop hanging with Soulja Boy
- Don’t smoke weed in your videos if Chief Keef is on probation.
- Don’t put Guns in your video if Chief Keef is on probation.
- Stop touching Chief Keef in these videos.
- Don’t hit women
- Don’t hit people
- Don’t punch the only girl ever in a GBE video.
- STOP HANGING WITH NIGGAS WITH CAMERA PHONES!

Who exactly is Kendrick Lamar? This is a question that’s still being answered, but at the moment he’s Dr. Dre’s newest protege’. A spot which was once held by Snoop Dogg, Eminem, & 50 Cent is now Kendrick’s position. The people who proceeded him were no one hit wonders, or gold album sellers ether; they gave us classic albums. Kendrick Lamar is not the rookie the media tries to portray him as. He’s been the face of the west coast and Black Hippie movement for the last few years, and dropping tapes as far back as 03. I was introduced to Kendrick Lamar on “Section .80” a project with one problem, when he was on he was on, when he was off that shit was horrible. So with that small background and my biased perception of “Section .80”, i decided to to invest in this ‘Good kid, m.A.A.d city’.
As I said before his predecesors gave us classic albums, think the first time you heard the “G Funk Era Intro”. It was something special. “Good kid, m.A.A.d. city” starts with “Sherana aka Master Splinter’s Daughter” a soulful and in-depth description of a young mans quest for pussy. You’re instantly sucked in. It’s a good ol’ old school gangster movie on record. It’s the story of a adolescent Kendrick a 17 year old in the 11th grade, living in a city filled with lust, greed, peer pressure, gangsters, and angel dust. This project is way more than i expected. It’s what i enjoy from Hip-Hop, emotions and originality. Two things that are simple, yet missing from today’s music. BUY THIS TODAY!
I’m trying very very hard to understand the behind the scenes business of the music business. Year after year I find a dope rapper follow his success to mainstream and notice how once they get there the music doesn’t stay true to it’s origins. I don’t know if maybe they’ve spread thin through all their self releases, maybe they’ve become distant from their audience, got cocky, shitty A&R, etc. The list goes on. I only bring this discussion up because yesterday A$AP Rocky released his second single from LONGLIVEA$AP entitled “Fuckin Problem” which features Drake, Kendrick Lamar, & 2 Chainz. I would not hate this song as much as I do if it wasn’t a single for his debut album.
Debut Albums are supposed to introduce the world to your sound. This single is what people like to call a crossover ATTEMPT. I call it shitty. Dude you’re A$AP Rocky at the end of last summer we thought you were bringing the trill wave back, something Drake and Kendrick Lamar are far from. You gave us LiveLoveA$AP, but that still didn’t establish your sound. You gave us Pretty Flacko, then you say FUCK Spaceghostpurpp the person who helped create your sound. You collaborated with Hit-Boy ,a very over hyped producer in my book for trying to get a nice radio banger. I guess it didn’t chart the way you wanted, but that was still you. Lord$ Never Worry was an awesome teaser, but not if this is the bullshit you plan on selling us, this A$AP stuff ain’t what i thought it was. The song is not trash trash, its just a lazy attempt for a radio song to get his album out by Halloween. FAIL
