Top 10 MC’s… Just So You Know

Me and my homie Marco got into a heated discussion last night about who was the top MC’s in the game past and present. It seems like I alway’s get into some kind of discussion about that type of shit. It’s cool though because I enjoy those types of conversation and hate talking about cornball shit. So in light of that discussion last night I decided to a post on my top MC’s. This list for me changes sometimes depending on how i feel and where I am in my thought process but for the most part it doesnt drift to far from this…

This is a list that I have comprised of the Top 10 MC’s that had the most influence on the evolution and mental mind frame of The Kid…

1. Nas

2. Rakim

3. Jay-Z

4. Andre 3000

5. Biggie

5. Eminem

6. Tupac

7. KRS-One

8. Common

9. Big L

Nike “Air Stab” is causing violence in the UK.

Reportedly the Nike Air Stab is making people want to go out and stab someone. A shoe that was designed by a our main man Tinker Hatfield and has been out since 1988 is not responsible for street violence in London. That shit sounds totally ridiculous huh. I am not going to bother explaining the whole situation so read more here. By the way Stab=Stability

The folks over at crackberry seem to always come up with the exclusive cell phone pics. This time they were able to get a hold of the first live shots of the new blackberry thunder. I must say that i am an die hard iphone fan but before I had the iphone the BB was my thing for years. The design and the general concept of the seems to be modeled after the iphone (killing the cell phone game right now). Check out the features over at crackberry and let me know if it is enough to make you iphone users switch back.

Nods to my homie Frshmn for putting me up on this, I guess I was sleeping but yes that’s right there is a MacBook Touch. Well, it is actually a modification of the MacBook and a Tablet PC type of touch screen.
Since January a consumer electronics company by the name of Axiotron has been selling them for $2279 to $2479 (the difference is the RAM and DVD drive). Click here for more info.

Touch Screen DJ Turntables

With the facination of being able to touch things to get them to work, e.g., iPhone, or your grocerie store touch screen checkout, there is a new innovation that will allow DJ’s to just touch also.
The Attigo TT is a touch screen turntable that allows DJ’s to loop, sample, and scratch waveforms just like you would do vinyl. It is the same size as a regular TT.

I am not to hyped about this myself. I’m a turntablist/vinyl DJ who uses serato now and I can’t see myself converting my setup to something like this. I’ll save this for next generation. Holla!!!
