Rare Dilla Footage

J-Dilligence and Frank n Dank choppin it up in a very humble reminiscent atmosphere. As heard mid way through, Dilla almost impregnated the amazing 90's golden era with a Busta, Biggie, and Nas record produced by Dilla Doughnuts himself. Damn, he was truly a legend.

Pimpin' Pens continues to show appreciation, admiration, and the utmost respect for some of the most talented beat conductors this rusted world has ever seen. The legacies of production giants such as Pimp-C and J-Dilla will be carried by our torch for millenias to come, bet your balls on that.

Wu Tang Clan's First Interview

The Wu Tang Clan back when they were real hardbody and savage. This interview was filmed on the set of "Da Mystery of Chessboxin" music video, and conducted by the venerable ambassador of hip-hop in the early days-Fab Five Freddy. Wu Tang is the tightest rap group in history hands down. I'll even go as far as to say they are the greatest musical group ever, that is how much the TriplesixNinja has been influenced by these true veritable icons. Peep Ghostface Killah donning the the white mask. He was still a wanted man by the authorities at that time for gun-trafficking, so he had to stay incognito back in the enter the 36 chambers era. There has never been a rap group or any group in any genre for that matter, who once they started making major moves in the industry, came back to their respective hoods and held their entire affiliated nation down as well. Wu Tang is the most dangerous and thick clique in music history. Also, the most influential kniccas in the game. Who do you think set the blueprint for all the scarface, gambino, criminology, aka multiple alias shit that is considered commonplace now in the rap game. Trendsetters to say the least. Nuff respect due to the gods, and the earths. And they are still ten toes in the game for after nearly 20 years, that is a true testament to their longevity and perseverance in the game.

Nasty Nardo- Can't Stop Ballin Review

After hearing Nasty Nardo on the Hustle and Flow soundtrack I've been steady hooked on this dude's delivery and flow. This lead me to cop the Already Famous CD and now the Can't Stop Ballin junt which was the CD that caught the attention of Craig Brewer; director of the groundbreaking film Hustle and Flow. Released November 16, 2004 on Nardo's own label imprint Ghetto Star Entertainment this CD is just another link in the off the chain repertoire that is Nasty Nardo. In other words this was the CD that propelled Nardo to the national spotlight. I believe it was the cut off the Already Famous album "Watch TV" featuring Young Kee where Nardo alludes to his chance encounter with Hustle and Flow director Craig Brewer stating:
"he loved click on em, and that's when I said let's get a room on em, he took my phone number and then he called me, and ever since then there's been plenty salt shakin on me. bad talk on me because they wasn't chosen to represent they city with they hustlin and flowin. or they elbowin or the gansta walk don't get mad at me pimp it wasn't my fault. so stop throwin salt and stop worrying about my song, and don't don't don't watch me hoe watch TV its that p-i-mafucking-m-p its that Nasty Nardo and Young Kee don't watch me hoe watch TV"
Back to the basics, Can't Stop Ballin is another certified banger through and through, with cuts like the original "Let's Get a Room" featuring Gangsta Boo, and other junts featuring Memphis mainstays Kingpin Skinny Pimp, and the ever-present Mr. Sche who is often featured on Nasty Nardo's work. The song "Rollin" with Mr. Sche is bumping with hooks like:
"Do you want to Get Buck wit me, purple thangs and Hennesy, playboy I'm rollin, I'm rollin"
Another notable cut is track 16 entitled "trill" with the hook going a little something like this:
"I'm a pimp nigga trill nigga mathufuckin real nigga im the type of nigga to put a hole in you Hilfiger"
That particular cut is reminiscent to me of the late great Pimp C always talkin about puttin a hole in your Hilfiger. With guest appearances from Se7en Da Great, Tom Skeemask, Al Kapone, Mizz T, K-9, Chopper Girl, Krunk City, Don Vito, Jay-P, Pistol Pete, Mr. Sche, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, and Gangsta Boo-you can expect nothing short of greatness from the often imitated but never duplicated Nasty Nardo.

Teaser Alert! New Del the Funky Homosapien album: The Eleventh Hour

Dropping March 11th on the mighty Definitive Jux record label, Del, of the world reknown Hierogliphics familia, makes his overdue return after an extended hiatus to perhaps bring some type of guiding light back to music.

Peep the teaser, let it marinate, and purchase the record on March 11th, motherfuckers.

Mr. Sche and Nasty Nardo Album

Yeah that's right, we hit up Sche directly and he was able to inform us that yes, him and Nardo will be doing an album together. Ever since Nasty Nardo blew up with "Let's get a room" on the Hustle and Flow movie soundtrack he's been featured on multiple Sche Albums and vice versa. I'm glad to see these too putting down an album, I'm sure it's definitely going to be on some Gangsta Pimpin' Shit. Look for that Album to drop sometime in March and the Vendetta has been pushed to February. Keep checking back with us for more updates and further information.

Hit the play button - could take a while but it will play be patient!

Alphabet of Manliness by MADDOX: Hardest Piece of Literature Ever Created

Warning! If the following mentioned work of perfection is not added to your bookshelf immediately after reading you may suffer loss of all testicle usage. In fact, I would like to add to the disclaimer by emphasizing that it is not a warning by any means and if this is your second time glancing over this post you very well may have already had your balls removed, disintegrated, and/or tucked so deep into your colon your skin flute is now part of a one man band blowing other dicks for coke. Do not look down.

Full grown, hair covered caveman uppercutting a giant gorilla with no remorse. Ok, this is already a must cop. Lets keep it moving.

The man you see above this line should not be confused with the over hyped socialist turned trendy hipster icon Che Guevara. That man was a bitch, being Cuban allows me to say that, what a perk. Seriously though, the picture above is actually Maddox The Pirate, who has single handedly composed the greatest doctrine for everything hard, (and for the record, yes he is a modern day pirate). Maddox is notorious for his extremely opinionated writings and pompous views throughout his website: The Greatest Page in the Universe, but has far outdone anything he has ever concocted with the substance in this book. It truly is a masterpiece and should be preserved in the Louvre Museum next to the Mona Lisa, except it shouldn't be in a glass case but be held for eternity by naked porn stars who rotate shifts every 10 years. Upon extinction of Earth it will then be launched into orbit along with the last porn star, firm grip and all. I mean, the content within this scribe is so rugged, so toxic, and so incredibly manly that if your chest hairs don't grow chest hair immediately after reading the inner cover, you should end your life, period.

The Alphabet of Manliness is an A-Z debacle of douchebaggery. We're talking people getting drop kicked in the face, excessive violence, garish disregard for children, tit punching, obscure penile referencing, proper urinal etiquette, tributes to lumberjacks, pirate mania, porn, true love otherwise known as a quickie, and quite possibly the greatest ode to Chuck Norris in the history of hard ass motherfuckers like Walker Texas Ranger himself. I am not even half playing here, this book is the truth. Jam packed with brilliant phrases and perfectly crafted punch lines engulfed in so much debauchery you may go awol and pillage you neighbor's home only to wake up the next morning with his wife blowing your longhorn. Dead serious, there are some accounts of this happening after completion of the book. Above and beyond, the illustrations depict such a vivid picture of what this swashbuckler is describing you can spend your lunch break laughing hysterically at one page. Peep:

Point made, cop the marvel and become a man or spend the rest of your days watching your dick shrivel.

Pimpin' Pens is a proud supporter of Maddox and everything that spills from his obnoxious cranium.

Too Slept On: Rob Sonic's Sabotage Gigante

Rob Sonic is no new-comer to the indie scene, (I loathe using the word indie but blow me, I'm tired). His latest opus, Sabotage Gigante, is, I must say, a fantastic record and extremely slept on. This white boy definitively does not get the burn he deserves. With 12 futuristic Bronx boom bap bangers, Sonic's sophmore effort on the mighty Def Jux is worth adding to any dusty earmonger collection. Drug induced lyrics, up-tempo noisy beats, and an overall cold appearance, this northerner solidifies himself as a prominent emcee/producer monster in the "progressive", (I hate these terms), music world. Just peep the following simple studio and ill cut, Rob I got you yo.

Big Doe Bonkers

Released December 4th, 2007, this album surpassed expectations for Ghostdini connoisseurs everywhere. A perfect follow up to the critically acclaimed bangers Fishscale and More Fish, Big Doe Rehab explodes out the speaker box with 16 raw cuts guaranteed to have you rewinding those classic GFK liners, "Got my DDL on me that's my dickemdown license." (You're the shit Tony Starks.) I'm talking poisonous story darts from start to finish, imagery enhanced verses, undeniable flavor, and not to mention Rae and Meth get nasty shine as well. The production ranges from banging horns and percussion on "Barrel Brothers" to smooth blaze-a-spliffy-with-the-chicky-at-sunset bass lines on "Super GFK", and consistently compliments Killah's unique word choice and vivid depictions throughout the album. Considering the amount of garbage released late 2007, there is no possible way any hate can be thrown towards Big Doe. I am still burning to this in the whip, all praises due to the Ironman.

Lord Infamous: The Man, The Myth, The Legacy

When I heard that Lord Infamous was dropping a new solo in 2007 I was elated. There is only one other LP in history that could rival my anticipation for the Lord solo junt, and that LP was the Wu Tang Clan's double disc sophmore effort Wu Forever (a masterpiece). Lord Infamous is undoubtebly the hardest emcee in the rap game period. His flow is so sick and demented and at the same time extremely versatile. For instance in his earlier Lord of Terror and Mystic Style days he would spit the fast tounge-twisting devil shit. In the Teardaclupupthugz Crazynthelastdayz era he switched up to a more raspy, deep, and ghoulish voice to match his Keyzer Soze persona. Fast forward to 2007 like 13 years after he dropped his first solo offering Lord of Terror he comes as cold on the mic as he ever did, with his trademark lyrical flow onpoint as ever. It seems that during his brief hiatus from the rap game he was sharpening his lyrical swords while the rest of his former clique got too big for the bridges in Hollywood.
Back to the story at hand which is The Man, The Myth, The Legacy. Overall this is a solid piece of work, lyrically Lord is still a savage on the mic. He isn't quite as devilish and sinister in his style this time around, which is okay. Nobody can worship the devil forever, not even Lord(I don't think he ever really worshiped the devil anyway), but he is definately still hardbody. The only setback that this album suffers from is the production. That's not to say that there isn't some nicely crafted compositions, but for the most part this isn't a sonic landscape that I feel compliments Lord's rap style enough. However, this is still a dope album and you should go cop it on principal alone, it is after all Lord Infamous; the futuristic rowdy bounty hunter. It is also nice to hear my boy Pancho Villa who was the main character in the straight to video release Choices. Pancho come in on several different interludes. The album feautures T-Rock, II Tone, Big Stang, Santerria, La Chat, D-Dirt, Enigma on the production tip, Mac Montese, and Da Crime-Click.

The Brothers Solomon

What if you got free popcorn and a dead tweedy every time you changed a baby instead of plain old shit? Or porked an eskimo chick for your home school prom? Or entertained the possibility of giving birth to a baby cyclops? Huh?

So my couch forced a spliff in my mouth and inserted The Brothers Solomon on DVD into the player for me, (which scored a whopping 4.9 on IMDB), and I must say: "That shit was fucking hilarious!" You douche bags on IMDB that rated this masterpiece anything less than piss your piss-stained-pants funny deserve a quickie with 2 donkeys, yes 2. Directed by Bob Odenkirk from Tim and Eric Awesome Show fame and starring Will Arnet (Arrested Development) and Will Forte (Beerfest) The Brothers Solomon delivers some of the most hilariously awkward scenes I've ever witnessed. Packed with ridiculous facial gestures and outlandish attempts at baby making, these two optomistic halftards ensure that hilarity will ensue. Cop the DVD and give it a gander, I mean, they did knock up some big black dude's chick for their pops yo, that's funny shit.

Lil Boosie - Lil Boosieanna Mixtape Review

Boosie Bad Azz is back with some new shit, well at least a few tracks on the mixtape seem to sound like new joints. Released by the mixtape features 30 some odd tracks of Boosies tightest bangers and like 9 tracks I haven't heard before. "745" and "Southside superstar" are real hard as well as "models" and "post up" and "keep it gangster" with boosie's sick flow and vicious life-story lyrics. Block grinding, trap living, the dope game, hoes and g-shit as always come through as prominent themes in his music but by the sound of some of those new tracks looks like his new album is going to be a banger. A lot of his tracks were released prior to the BadAzz dropping, I think Asylum was supposed to release a double disc but the bootleggers apparently fucked things up so lets hope we get more tracks this time around. Peep the track listing and link to listen and download below.

We've heard the big homie Sche and T-Rock collab in the past on tracks like "Niggavile" and "Let's do some dirt" on the Supastar CD but a whole album together? Shit, this thing came outta nowhere and looks like it's going to be one of the hardest albums ever! After his departure from the Hypnotized Camp T-Rock and many others have unfortunately fallen upon the same path where they just can't get any decent production after Paul and Juice. The New Prophet Posse was lacking as did most of the Lord Infamous solo project but thankfully some of these talented cats have crossed paths with Sche who always comes correct on a track producing some of the hardest, most buck elbow-throwing anthems to date. From what I can gather in the trailer the Album is a spin off of the 2005 Wachowski Brothers blockbuster "V for Vendetta" where the main character "V" begins an epic, terrorist-style assault on a corrupt, Totalitarian Government. I'm sure we can expect heavy sampling from the film with politcal overtones as well as allusions to greed, wealth, crime and life in the city. The Album is slated to drop sometime this month. Check back with us and Sche's page for more info and reviews when it drops.

Pimpology: 48 Laws of the Game

It's been a long time since I left you without a dope blog to step to. Im back with some mo flavor and game for all of you lames and squares to soak up. When discussing the pimp game it is hard for one not to mention a true pioneer of the sport, Pimpin Ken. Pimpin Ken or Ken Ivy (which is his government name) has been ten toes down in pimpdom since he was a young teenager on the streets of Milwaukee. Ken goes into explicit detail about his formative years under the tutelage of older seasoned macks and some older not so seasoned macks. He drew a little something from each and everyone of those encounters and became the pre-eminent mack of present day. This book is not exclusively meant for aspiring pimps or macks, but anybody looking to gain an advantage and upper-hand in a variety of social settings. In other words this book doesn't teach you how to pimp per say but how to understand the inner-workings of the pimp mentality, and how to use these precepts in your everyday life at work and at home in order to stay on top and dominant in your relationships with people. I have long been captivated by the mystique and enigmatic profile of the pimp, and have dedicated my life to perfecting my innate skills of pimping. This book is a perfect tool for you to begin honing your skills as a up an coming young pimp. Although, you must be forewarned the pimp game is not for the weak-minded and timid, it will eat you up if you lack the backbone and pedigree. This book goes over in intricate detail the 48 unwritten laws of the game which cover all basis and contigencies, as no stone is left unturned. Ken is a pimps pimp, if you will, he will no doubt go down in history as one of the greatest pimps to ever turn the game out. The reason being is that he took the game to a whole new level as he discusses in the book, namely by bringing the pimp game into mainstream America through the influence of the greatest advocates of pimpin; rappers. Ken made alliances with countless rappers who have feautured Ken in their videos as well as records. A pivotal moment in his life came when he was approached by the producers and directors of the HBO documentary Pimps Up Hoes Down about providing his insight and perspective on pimpin. He discusses how the producers and directors were trying to pimp him early on in the negotiaitons but how he later flipped the script on them and asked for producers credit as well as some money on the front end and the back end. Now that is pimping my friends! Make sure you go pick this junt up it gets two thumbs up from the Pimpin Pens fam.
