Taking A Time Out for The Pledge To Rage Tour
I’ll be on tour with OnCue for the next several weeks, so this little blog of mine will be taking a long hiatus. In it’s place, I will be reblogging from my dude PDA’s tumblr (www.pledgetoeat.tumblr.com) which will be updating our adventures in eating while on tour. Enjoy.

So this is what Florence would sound like if she lived in a drug induced state of darkness like The Weeknd seems too.
Rostam - Wood

Chappelle Show, all them Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?
Video: jj – “Your Love” - Acoustic (The Outfield...
As a DJ, I can say that I’ve had to play this Outfield joint in one way shape or another at about 80% of my gigs over the years. I also despise it in almost every way. In almost every way except for the acoustic version that jj’s frontwoman performs on this video. It’s exceptionally beautiful.
Video: Azealia Banks - 212
I caught this video over the weekend and was a bit blown away. This girl is incredibly talented. Harlem’s on a roll these days.

DRUNK DRIVING ON A WEDNESDAY!!!!!

Video: Meyhem Lauren - I Can't Win
I like seeing these young NYC dudes all fuckin’ with each other. Meyhem Lauren’s got bars too. Next level video concepts though? Not so much. But who really cares.
Video: Yelawolf ft. Lil Jon – Hard White
Hmm, reminds me of my typical Saturday night.
Dam Funk - Forever
I’ve been rocking with Dam Funk for a minute now. His funky original tracks and remixes have become a stable of any early night club set I’ve done of the past few years. His live show at Bonnaroo this past summer though, officially made me a fan. “Forever” is off Dam’s new InnaFocusedDaze EP for Scion A/V.

Ray J Discusses His Fight w/ Fabolous On The...
You couldn’t make something up this hilarious. Ray J is a straight ‘G. Hahahahaha.

He said, “Big AK’s, like Alicia Keys abbreviated”.
Video: LMFAO - Sexy & I Know It
Foo’s always been a funny dude. This video is hilarious.

I think I’ve said those words once or twice myself.

Mac Miller – Face The Facts (Prod. by DJ Premier)
Premo’s been talking about this track for a couple weeks via twitter. While the beat is classic Preem, I’m not sure if Mac brings out his A game for this one.
Video: Cut Copy - Blink and You’ll Miss a...
Apes in robes, a band of disembodied heads and arms. This is all good.
J. Cole. ft. Jay Z - Mr. Nice Watch
Outasight - Loosen Up
Outasight dropped a new track today via twitter. “Loosen Up” is a fun and light track with a classic Outasight quality. This feel good song will help you get through the rest of your school or work week! You can listen to and download the track HERE! Outasight-Loosen Up by RPM_MSC

Mixtape: The CEO - Cornerstone Mixtape #141
It’s almost Fall here in NYC ya’ll. What better way to wrap up the end of the hot weather than with some hot summer close out music? This time we took a hop, skip & a jump over to the midwest, MO to be exact… With that being said, we’d like to present to you The Cornerstone Mixtape #141: Pure Untapped. Mixed by The CEO, representing KHTT: 106.9 K-Hits, Late...
Mixtape: Mr. M'n eXquire - Lost in Translation
Via The Fader: Over the weekend, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire released Lost in Translation, a mixtape full of drunken, grimy, self-deprecating New York rap. There’s production by El-P on here (including a couple re-purposed beats from Cannibal Ox’s The Cold Vein), as well as a lot of talk about being drunk and not stoked on yourself. Mostly though, it’s exciting to hear a dude sing off-key, rap...
Video: Beirut - Santa Fe
I love Beirut’s album. It’s a steady “go to” joint when I want to get away from my usual diet of trap music and 90’s hip hop nostalgia. Today the band released their rather peculiar video for “Santa Fe”. You kinda just have to watch it for yourself.
