JoJo: ‘Jumping Trains’ Coming Soon!


After years of negotiations between labels, JoJo is finally getting ready to release her third studio album, newly titled “Jumping Trains” after this year. Her label, Blackground Records, reached a deal with Interscope Records for distribution & it will finally see the light of day. JoJo will shortly be dropping her new single “The Other Chick” shortly & has already shot the video. Check out Joanna Noëlle Blagden Levesque’s newly relaunched website. She’s all grown up now, I’m intrigued.

(2)Dope Radio…

… is finally back after a winter hiatus today (April 30th). Per usual, the dopehouse will be in attendance (myself at the station, Shake running the chathouse down bottom), & moreover members of the NMC may be around so expect nothing yet satisfactory music, shit-talking & special guests (maybe). Hell, I may be in the chathouse as well. Tune in today from 4pm-6pm EST (1pm-3pm PST).

Cory Gunz – Know My Name Lyrics

[Verse 1]
What, yeah I’m on nigga run up
I’m runnin’ with the gym blade in my fitted now
Fuck around with me & obtain knitted down
So much green cant remember the last time I shitted brown
Thirsty niggas aint admitting they bitter sound
Now I’m hungry to show em I’m the hottest fucking kid around
Show em how it go I dont kid around
Fuck ya crew & label go obtain a town
And set off & spit around
YMCMB in the bee & pee on ya bean
Why & if I see em tell em I wouldnt wanna be em
Run off gun out, gun off run out
Fuck the what nigga bring the pleasant out
Militia gang rap for the dumb out
Try me for a come up
I bet ya niggas raps never come out
Smooth drinking swigga with a temper like a bliquor
On the itchy finger nigga bought a liquor on the victim goin

[Chorus]
Dont you know my name?
Gunz Militia Pop
Show these little niggas I’m not playing games
I’m a pro with the dot I’m a cold nigga pop
Like cash with the flames
Gunz Militia Pop
Show these little niggas I’m not playing games

[Verse 2]
What, bitch nigga you aint saying shit
I received business on the block, Amber, Wayne & Nick
If aint depending on the watch then we made em sick
I knew a witness on the watch who became a vic
Had a wife of a life then became a bitch
Most my niggas lay the bricks so they lay in bricks
Or they laying bricks
I love the south like potato grits
But I bet whatever if you say the knicks
My niggas midwest with a plate of fix
Staged up & off the dimes & they making knicks
Caught a jooks by mistake I aint mean to obtain em
Shit, he was the trick he ain’t need to spend em
See me in any whips bet the nina’s in em
Gimme Christinas lips put the penis in em
My closet looking like I received a cleaners in em
Ya’ll aint poppin tommy’s ya’ll are just alotta gleamers with em

[Chorus]
Dont you know my name?
Gunz Militia Pop
Show these little niggas I’m not playing games
I’m a pro with the dot I’m a cold nigga pop
Like cash with the flames
Gunz Militia Pop
Show these little niggas I’m not playing games

Mac Lethal – North Korean BBQ (Mixtape)

North Korean BBQ is for old souls. People 30+ (figuratively & literally.)

The title, however, is a reminder for me & all of us, that no matter how complex life can seem. We are all very fortunate people to live where we live. In Kansas City, when we obtain lonely or depressed, we go gorge ourselves on delicious, molasses-based BBQ. In North Korea, they don’t obtain lonely or depressed. They don’t select feelings or thoughts. North Koreans don’t eat BBQ. They eat octopus skin & fried white corn. I was looking through audio clips from old North Korean documentaries to mix in with the music, yet honestly, I felt like I was being lighthearted approximately their situation, which is greatly serious.

I must remind you of something, though: THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL PIECE OF MUSIC. NO!

This is NOT a political statement, yet an examination on the self-entitlement we feel while bathing in our own excess & drama. I’m sorry your boyfriend broke up with you, yet treasure the satisfactory times you did have. Bump this mixtape as a way to assist push those negative, volatile emotions out, BUT…always remember that below the surface, life is truly a beautiful, pleasant work of art for some of us. Unfortunately it takes looking at other people’s situations to realize that sometimes.
