“Where Hip Hop Lives”

September 29, 2010

I went up to see the fine folks at Power 106 here in Los Angeles today (shout out to DJ Coke-E and DJ Fuze, who were introduced to me as “huge Linkin Park fans”).  It was fun.

When I got home, I received this glorious youtube clip in my email inbox.

Thanks to Ryu from Get Busy for sending this video.  Remember kids, hip hop is an attitude, it can never go out.

    Hey, Mike I think you’ll like the “Wretches And Kings” Video that I made. Here’s the video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIMo1WoHcfE

    In the video you can see quite good effects and sync. I made it for 2-3 days. I don’t believe you have time to watch my video, but if you find some free time, please watch it!

    Hey Mike and the others =)
    On blitz.com I read that Lady Gaga’s songs are one of the most unwanted of a list. And I read the most populars too =) See what I found!!!!http://www.lastfm.com.br/charts

    Congrats guys, I’m really proud of you. As I usually do, I loved the new album… Keep it up.

    Here in Portugal ‘A Thousand Suns’ is #1 =P

    @annack82 & @zahralp
    Check out this interview with NoBrain:

    Next time I go to a hip hop club I will do the same the nice lady did. I will be the hippest person for sure.

  9. thegluelpfan on October 1, 2010 at 3:02 am

    Now this is REAL attitude… 😀 Although I think today’s hip hop has kind of drifted apart from that…

  17. mrdiamondj on September 30, 2010 at 7:56 am

    What’s crazy is that I do that same b-boy stance/peace out thing that she does at the end in the mirror every morning. Who woulda thunk it?

  30. smokins on September 29, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    this class should be given by Jack Nicholson, it will be a world wide phenomenon then..

  31. lpfmfan on September 29, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    LOL, that was interesting to say the least!

    Did you do an interview at Power 106? Because by the time I found out you were there and listened to the station live (streaming) you were gone I think..so I missed it :/
    Also DJ Coke-E is a huge LP fan..did you see his twitter background? Recognize it? LOL 😀

  32. silversmile13 on September 29, 2010 at 9:28 pm
