Lucy In The Sky: Albert Hofmann Passes at 102

BASEL, Switzerland — Albert Hofmann, the father of the mind-altering drug LSD whose medical discovery grew into a notorious "problem child," died Tuesday April 29th, 2008. He was 102.

A Swiss scientist best known for synthesizing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). He stumbled upon this psychedelic discovery while synthesizing lysergic acid derivatives from fungus ergot, or in layman's terms, dude was fucking with them shroomies. While handling a specimen of the recently obtained LSD-25, he accidentally absorbed some of the liquid onto his fingertips and had what is quite possibly the greatest bike voyage the world has ever heard of. Since then A. Hof and his comrades continued to experiment with the cidy substance as well as many other aboriginal inspirations, including but not limited to psilocybin, morning glory, various roots, and salvia divinorum (more on salvia from Big Rico coming soon). He did mention that psychedelics can be very dangerous in the wrong hands, and before being hijacked by the pathetic hippie movement, was actually quite successful during psychoanalytic studies. Fortunately it leaked out though, for this visionary elixir contributed greatly to my youth as well as provided a plethora of layers and realms for my goonies and I to wander through during the witching hour. So many a moon cluttered with crawling spiders, morphed out statues, and colorfully melting Florida forests later, Pimpin' Pens honors A. Hof as a truly intelligent explorer for the greater of humanity and beyond.

Here's a Tribute For Big Al. Aesop Rock's Aptly Titled Banger: "The Greatest Pacman Victory Ever"

Hofmann authored more than 100 scientific articles and wrote a number of books, including "LSD:My Problem Child".

T.I.- No Matter What

In the face of recent controversy, court dates, jail time and sentencing, T.I. fires back with his first single off the upcoming "Paper Trail" album - "No Matter What". The song is a string and organ laced track with some southern soul and swagger that only the King can bring. As usual T.I. rips it with his signature calm flow and raspy, forceful delivery that we've all grown to love and respect. All praises due to the Bankhead Ambassador. ATLiens stand up!

Cypress Hill In This Piece!

This video comes off the third group effort from the stoned raiders, B-Real, Sen Dog, and DJ Muggs called Temple of Boom. A severely underrated composition of work containing collaborations with Wu Tang Clan's U-God and Rza, as well as appearances from the Fugees as you will see here shortly. DJ Muggs handles the bulk of the production while Rza lends his talents on a few cuts. Everyone knows that Cypress Hill's first two albums were classics, but this one is no exception either. It's a psychedelic trippy journey into the blunted drug-addled mentals of some smoked-out loced-out vatos.
Boom Biddy Bye Bye feat. Fugees


Killa Hill Niggas - Feat. Rza & U-God.

That was gay they only played 30 seconds of it. I guess I'll just have to do this!

Propers go out to the youtube user Eazyeat for being the only dude repping this uncut p-funk.

Oh, and by the way, any knicca who says U-God can't rap can eat a dick. But, not my mine. I'm out...

One more thang. I can't forget this classic cut off the album where he disses Ice Cube. He addresses him as Oshea Jackson, his government name. The beef between Cube and Cypress has long since been squashed, but that shit was an all out war from what I remember. The essays and vatos were all catching Cypress Hill's back, while the African American population was riding with Cube. Unfortunately Cube was out-gunned as the latino population is the predominant one out in LA. There still is to this day a lot of friction between the Hispanics and African-Americans. It's a God damn shame I tell you. Stop the insanity! Ice Cube won the battle lyrically though.

Naughty By Nature Producer Kay Gee Relaunches Divine Mill Record Label

Seems Kay Gee has been on his grind with his newest joint venture between Caroline/EMI and Merovingian Music (MRV). The deal will help extend his brand Divine Mill Records, housing platinum R&B artists Jaheim, Next and Zhane. Through the distribution of EMI and marketing savvy of MRV, Kay Gee will be able to cement and further his Divine Mill Record imprint. Kay Gee has remained a relevant and permanent fixture on the hip-hop scene for a minute, crafting production for artists like Eazy-E, Notorious B.I.G, Michael Jackson, Queen Latifah, Aaliyah, Mary J Blige, Luther Vandross, Will Smith, Brooke Hogan, and newcomer Noel Gourdin. That is an impressive resume to say the least. Godspeed Kay Gee. You've come a long way since the early days with Naughty By Nature. Shout outs go to Vinnie and Treach too.

I will now leave you with my personal favorite from Naughy, an undeniable classic video. It elicits memories of the movie Juice with Tupac. I thik that might be because it was on the soundtrack. At any rate, I present you with "Uptown Anthem." Tupac even makes a little cameo, chilling in New York like it wasn't no thang, before the east coast west coast brouhaha.

Fall Back: It's Just Music

Legendary Queensbridge emcee and perhaps one of the most influential pioneers in modern music, Nasty Nas (Nasir Jones), will be releasing his ninth and quite possibly most controversial studio album to date, entitled "Nigger". Now, before I begin to bury my knuckles into the topic at hand, let me preface the aforementioned by stating that as an avid listener of gritty poets I'm only enthused about Godson's new project based entirely on the premise that "Hip Hop is Dead" was crafted so magnificently that I eagerly await another concept album solely to see if Nasty Esco could manage to deliver consecutive bangers. Of course, my parade has been ruined by a monsoon of haters harping over the title of the record. Give me a fucking break already! Please, for the love of Jesus, Buhda, Mohamed, and Moses can you haters posing as intelligent human beings dig into your bank accounts and purchase an X-Box so you can stop bickering about a musical release in, oh yes, 2008! That's right numbnuts, 2008, if Ice Cube can release a record over 10 years ago spelling "AmeriKKKA" in the form and fashion as to take a jab at some white hooded inbreds, then Nas can name his album "Nigger", plain and simple. Furthermore, there should no longer be any form of derogatory meaning behind any word in our pretentious vocabulary. Have you taken the time to analyze what Hollywood feeds the masses this day and age? How about I name an album "Dick in a child's rectum: The messy chronicles"? Maybe that'll break the frozen tundra of politically correct hoopla floating around the campfire. Perhaps the Slavic race of old should have some input, or maybe Mr. Oreilly should let us peak at his porn collection, or senor Sharpton or Jackson should open their books to the most tedious auditor? All I'm saying is if one of the illest emcees breathing wants to name his album something to generate shock, attention, stimulation, peace, war, or art, then who are we to judge. Shit I'm smoking ganja watching porn as we speak, go Nasty Nas, it aint hard to tell.

New Street Single "Be A Nigger Too":

Oh, and on a peculiarly similar note. Here is a rather interesting little piece recorded decades ago by a man named John Lennon. You may have heard of him. He was the brutally assassinated member of some little band called The Beatles:

"Never on schedule, but always on time..."

Fallen Soldiers-Ol Dirty Bastard

One of the saddest days of my life was when I was broken the news that the beloved court jester of gangsta rap music, Ol Dirty Bastard, passed away. Ol Dirty was the epitome of trillness. The dude spoke his mind, kept it 100 of pure uncut funk. He lived up to his moniker Ason Unique. He was a free-spirited genius who held no punches and represented alongside the thickest crew in hip-hop ever, the Wu Tang Clan. There has never been another entity in the rap game that rivaled the pure diabolical genius that was Ol Dirty. He was a true renegade and rebel to authority, yet, he was also a good summaritan performing numerous heroic deeds. Like pushing a young girl out of the way of a moving car. When asked by the police at the scene of the accident what his name was he merely drew a Wu Tang logo. He wasn't trying to generate publicity, and it doesn't get any realer than that my friends. And still no good deed goes unpunished, despite all of his kind acts he remained a target for the police, who he was at constant odds with. From violating his probation to make an appearance at a Wu concert, Dirty risked his freedom on a daily basis just to rep for the Wu, and all of you too. So to commemorate the legacy of this fallen comrade, I've put together a little video collage of some of his more amusing moments, starting with his most infamous display of hijinks at the 97 Grammy's, where Wu Tang lost best rap album to Diddy of all people. What the fuck? He bought himself those fresh threads.

Wu Tang is 4 the children!

America's dying slowly:

Prince Rakeem & ODB in Rare Form during the early days. Pre-Wu Tan,. circa the All in Together Now days, a group consisting of Gza, Rza, and Ol Dirty Bastard. Those kniccas turned it out. Space age shit.

Dirty & Meth during the Wu Tang Forever Era. Wu Tang had the game on lock in 97. On the Swedish tip. Peep Dirty at the 4:50 mark, he's wildin out. 4EVA! 4EVA!

Big Daddy Kane feat. Scoob, Jay-Z, Shyheim, Sauce Money, and Dirt McGert. Old School. That fila jacket Kane is wearing is tight.

Mo Thangs:

The Knicca is possesed!

Ol Dirty's alter-ego was Osirus, who was the god of Hades (afterlife) in greek mythology. Now he really is the underbosshogg of Hades. RIP RUSSEL JONES, AKA Big Baby Jesus, Dirt McGert, Ason Unique and all the other aliases I'm forgetting.

K-Rock-K-Shock The World

A gang of former Hypnotize Minds/Prophet Posse artist clicked up to put it down on this sophomore effort from the original Killa Klan Kaze member K-Rock. After he was replaced by Project Pat he pursued his solo career releasing K-Rock the World in 2000, which was executive produced by Nick Scarfo CEO of the newly established incarnation of Prophet Posse. Released in 2002 this underground classic is not to be overlooked, with production from the underboss MC Mack and Spook as well as guest features from Indo G, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, Big Ed The Assassin, Nick Scarfo, South Park Hustlaz, and Kojack. I'm not going to get into specifics on why this is such a hardbody album, suffice it to say I'll let the music and video content preach the word of the gospel of Enzo and Pimpin Pens.

"Cheese and Crackers": An Almost Skateboards DVD Project

Daewon Son and Chris Haslam are just about two of the nastiest skaters to kick a board. Forming a very successful partnership with the legendary likes of Rodney Mullen, Greg Lutzka, and a few other gnarly nigz under the moniker "Almost Pro", these maniacs have pushed the boundaries of street skating passed unforeseen limits. The "Cheese and Crackers" project involves tossing a mini ramp and piles of garbage into an abandoned warehouse and letting two monsters loose on the wreckage.

That's right folks! Pimpin' Pens is a proud supporter of micro-breweries everywhere. A delightful touch of hops and spices makes for a compelling compliment to any evening, especially with a fly chicky and a blunt. And of the massive scale of micro-brews and assorted beers to choose from, the upper tier contains a specific brewery by the oh so reputable name "Dogfish Head". Known for their extreme brand of brews, this Delaware based brew hog has released enough special flavors and concocted such a plethora of exotic tonics that it seems the only ingredients they have yet to manufacture are illicit. No bullshit, these brew masters may fuck around one day and brew a batch of "Crackabsentheroinsativa Ale", just for fucking kicks! Their signature "Midus Touch Golden Elixir" just achieved bronze status at the 2008 World Beer Cup out of like 3,000 brews, shit, they get a pinky ring shining pimp hat tilt from us for that.

DJ Muggs best known for his production work with the widely influential west coast veterans Cypress Hill and Soul Assassins politicks with Sick Jacken--another Soul Assassin and Cypress Hill affiliate and member of the group Psycho Realm for the watershed masterpiece: The Legend of the Mask and the Assassin. DJ Muggs has being going hard since the dawn of the 90's with his trademark dusty-sounding, and soul-driven melodies, and though lesser-known Sick Jacken is a legend in his own right with his groundbreaking contributions to the Cypress Hill offshoot, Psycho Realm. This album is a follow-up to his critically acclaimed collaboration with Gza/Genius from Wu Tang on the DJ Muggs Vs. Gza- Grandmasters LP. The LP is laden with macabre and murky sounds ideal for the socially conscious lyrics of Sick Jacken. Sick Jacken also intersperses his verses with a Spanglish-type flow in an effort to cater to his Latino brethren. Don't get it twisted though, you won't find any reggae ton booty shakin junts on this work. This album is reminiscent of the contemplative and thought-provoking commentary so pervasive in the early and late 90's (Cuban Link era as I like to refer to it). The album is a breath of fresh air amidst the saturated, intellectually devoid climate of present-day hip-hop.

So don't be alarmed if you find material from musical artists ranging from the likes of Billy Idol, to Metallica.

When The Smoke Clears: Tribute Bangers for Cuatro Veinte

In light of this magnificent day, Pimpin' Pens has decided to take a well deserved break from providing Earth with a coated layer of THC fog to bring you these untimely classic junts revolving around the crystallized herbal remedy, nugz. Bathe in these sativa cuts as that bubbler enters another go around, filling your lungs with that alternate energy source on this glorious holiday. We apologize if the following catalog is not extensive enough, but due to the extreme frontal lobe damage, demonic eye syndrome, and massive case of hunger from the past 24 hours we feel the sudden urge to re-engage in a spliffy of hash and purp before the night retires. So fuck off and enjoy:

Ludacris' Raw Banger "Blueberry Yum Yum":

Young Buck's Ever So Appropriate "Puff Puff Pass":

Roots Manuva's Light Green London Cut "Highest Grade":

Outkast's Early Swayze Cut "Crumblin Herb":

Redman and Method Man's Ultra Classic "How High":

Madvillian's Funky Zooted "America's Most Blunted":

Pharcyde's Amsterdam Video Masterpiece for "She Said":

Cypress Hill's Blazed Banger "Dr. Greenthumb":

MF Doom's "My Favorite Ladies" featured on High Times fogged up record "THC Vol 1":

420 Bonus Beerfest Clip: "The Strikeout*":

*The Strikeout: For the extremely detached and/or pathetically sheltered numbnuts out there, the strikeout is a dangerous maneuver requiring the best of breed of talents, skillful enough to master the arts of 1) quick nug tokes, 2) bloated belly beer chugging, and 3) liquor shot consumption all in one fail swoop. This special combo pushes the use of all lung, liver, mental, and motor functions to the edge, often resulting in many hilarious fall outs, faces with detailed dicks drawn across them, and an occasional "achievement unlocked" flashing directly under the chest of the rare few who have lived to continue partying after such a risky adventure.

Prefuse 73: "Nuno"
The ATL Push-Button Dynamo At Work

On this bitter Tuesday of the red eyed, 5 o clock shadow dawning omni-grinder we have stirred up a digi snack of glitchy, chopped and skewed mastery. We're talking of course of the ever inventive and elusive gargantuan beatsmith Mr. Scott Heren AKA Prefuse 73. (Or Savath & Savalas, Delarosa and Asora and Piano Overlord to name a few ) Check out one of my favorite tunes from the Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives Album "Nuno" were he disects and reconfigures some Nas samples into a funky, mechanized ballad of blips and bleeps intertwined over a cleverly edited art-school style video.

Enjoy the caffeinated audio with a side of dusty drum patterns.

Know your ho's...

This is a landmark occasion for you loyal Pimpin' Pens fans out there, we're back with the friday special served up proper with a massive dose of this Pimpin. Any well schooled playa will tell you the game is to be sold and not to be told so don't expect a full breakdown of these terms but rather a general overview of some real game. For this piece we like to call "Know your Ho's" we've selected some terms from Ice-T's Pimpin' 101, an adult DVD that offers an essential, in-depth look into the lifestyle of a Pimp and the art of mackin these bitches.

First on the list...

"The Track Ho"

As you probably know the track is the street, strip or sidewalk upon which a bitch is strategically placed upon to get that money. However, working the track is not for every would-be hooker or prostitute according to Ice. These tracks can be extremely dangerous so "bitch got to have the nerve along with the curve."

"The Carpet Ho"

Defined as "the shrewdest of all bitches" where their primary objective is to spend the day getting ready to go out at night to casinos & clubs, all up in the VIP seemingly to party but in reality they're trying to look for the big spenders with money. These bitches walk on a carpeted track, hence the name for these low-down scallywags.

"The Stripper Ho"

These bitches are real conniving as well, though their self induced denile, these hoes are often cutthroat for some paper. A favorite of Ice, the striper ho "Don't really believe they're hoes. They think they're entertainers." but according to Ice-T a lap dance is prostitution. "Any time you press your ass against a man's genitals, it's prostitution." Man, thats some funny shit. From there he goes on to mention "no disrespect to Chris Rock, but sometimes there IS sex in the champagne room"

"The Call Girl Ho"

Now this bitch is at "the top of the ho heap," Ice proclaims due to their uncanny ability to attract high class clientele like business men, older gentlemen with money, and other high-paying tricks willing to drop some serious paper on that pussy. Ice-t gets into the mind of these Johns, often with a wife and kids, who spend a ton of money chasing a nut from a dirty slut... "there's something about being a man in a hotel room by yourself that makes your dick harder than it ever got in your life." I never thought of this but if he said it I'd assume it was fact, put a stamp on that shit.

"The Wife Ho"

According to Ice wives and Marriage are "the biggest ho of them all," because "free pussy always costs you more." Think about it....


These bitches are "a complex breed", as they're surprisingly prudish despite their "freaky" cum-dumpster occupation. Regardless to what they might tell a lame they meet at a club or anyone else, while working these bitches are prostituting by basically performing every sex act known to man on command. In one scene Ice has a shy-looking black girl next to him, from there he states that she got into porn because it was a "stepping stone" to conventional stardom. He smiles and talks her up then abruptly brings reality crashing down as he shouts "Bitch, you about to suck some dick and take it up the butt! Now get yo' ass in there!"

EVIL PIMP - Selections from the Pimpsta

Guess who's bizack? - It's your boy Rico and I'm back in this bitch with a shitload of goodies for the Pimpin' Pens nation. First let's kick this junt off with "Pimped Tonight" courtesy of the new homie "Luciferian Messiah's" Youtube Page.This video is laced with a bunch of nice ass shots and booty clips from youtube and other sources all spliced together in an extremely pleasurable hedonistic montage of ass clappin. Peep the 1:05 time code and on for some serious pussy poppin, ass shaking, booty shots, web cam booty dancing, upskirts and more borderline soft-core heat. Damn now that's a video, strictly for G's with nuts so soak up some game and watch a pimp work.

Catch the vapors as we take you on a journey through the "Mystic Fog"....

And another one...Peep "Underground King" one of the new singles from his upcoming album but don't quote me on that,as you'll soon see this motherfucker has a bunch of albums that drop per year.

And finally watch a Pimp make moves and emerge from the Underground and move straight "To Da Top"....

BONUS JUNT! What you thought I was done?

Evil Pimp and Krucifix Clan "Scarecrows"
This one has real tight, eerie beat reminiscent of "The Omen" or some other old school horror flick, just can't put my finger on it but listen and see if it sounds familiar.

Posted by the Almighty Rico "Okay I'm Reloaded" For Pimpin' Pens


After a brief sabbatical I'm back. I was on a spiritual retreat in India, meditating through the breeze, blowing trees. Actually I wasn't doing any of the aforementioned activities, but I was in one of my modes where I needed to be in seclusion in order to spark my mental. So I was doing my usual rounds of youtube surfing when I happened upon some old freshness from the horrorcore group Project Born. I first heard Project Born off the first two volumes of Forgotten Freshness by the wicked clowns ICP. I was immediately hooked when I listened to "Graveyard" featuring ICP. This is a spooky, eerie, spine-tingling, and hair-raising track guaranteed to get ya too shook to look.

I love the skit in the beginning of the track, it is something straight out of a horror/comedy movie. The audio depicts a scene where some unlucky chap happens to stumble across the wrong graveyard. Subsequently, he begins to hear little voices in the background pestering him. As he tells them to leave him alone, they only grow more agitated and begin to fuck with him even more, while his whimpers and pleas fall on deaf ears, thus the track begins and Project Born and ICP slay it.
Anyway, I don't have much to say today just a few darts to throw your way. Swallow these razors biatch!

Oh, and this one features the legendary pioner of acid rap, Esham. Most people out of Detroit are familiar with Esham, as he's been puttin it down for years. Before ICP were doing their thang, Esham was tearin da clubs up.
While we're at it, how bout some Robert Cooper aka Koopsta Knicca 4 that ass, since we are tackling the scary subject matter for you little boys and girls this evening. This video was blessed upon us by our new youtube homie out of Romania called LuciferianMessiah. I don't know what it is about these Romanian dudes these days, but they're steady flooding the youtube streets with massive flavor as of late. Karibe was the first to put the game on smash, now it looks like he's going to get a little competition from the knicca Lucifer.

West Coast Legends Return: Living Legends Roll Out "The Gathering"

A Snippet of History for the Sleepers:
It all started with Sunspot Jonz and Luckyiam of Mystik Journeymen in the early 1990's. By '94 they already had a huge following from throwing Underground Survivors shows, house party style at their loft in East Oakland. That's where the Grouch hooked up with the Journeymen in 1995, just before they took off on their first European tour. Around the same time in Los Angeles the Log Cabin Crew which consisted of several rappers including the 3 Melancholy Gypsys (Scarub, MURS and Eligh.) The Log Cabin Crew later broke up and the Gypsys formed of the three remaining members, who then crossed paths with the Mystik Journeymen to form Living Legends (Sunspot Jonz, Luckyiam, Scarab, Murs, Grouch, Eligh, Bicasso, Arata, & Aesop Fables). Over the years, the Journeymen and the Legends have rocked Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and the USA numerous times. I personally caught them up in North Florida some years back and they killed it, body bagged the stage and doused it with embalming fluid. Anyways, in the years since the Legends have continued releasing solo and crew projects and now have a catalog of over 50 full-length albums, no shit!

Pulling yet another voltron-esq manuever, the Legends return with an extremely dope record, "The Gathering". Peep one of the singles and then hit up the site, :

How bout we unleash an entire fucking array of West Coast bangers on these fools!

Bonus-Bonus-Bonus! Cali Hero Grouch's super video for "Artsy":

MURS I got you meng!

Teaser Alert! Lil Weezle "Carter 3" Poppin Off in May

In anticipation of Weezy the martian's sixth studio album and final edition to the Carter* trilogy, we decided to present a couple cuts to keep the salivation from spilling over the bucket's edge. I'd also like to address all the haters out there always complaining about Weezy wee, "Go eat a chafing dick!", whether this dude's brain is purple jelly or not he still makes great entertainment. Plus if that foam cup keeps him spitting outlandish nonsense like this then fuck it yo, pour it up.

Lil Wayne's really illy "A Millie":

I'd have to agree though, this song is proof that this cat has definitely been ice grilling into the abyss lately. Which is even more of a reason to cop the "Carter III", jeah!

Weezy F. Baby's ultra hard "1000 Degrees":

"Lil Wayne never drop the lil..."

*The Carter: Named after the infamous illicit headquarters in the movie "New Jack City" starring Wesley Snipes before he went on a vampire killing spree forcing him to stop paying the IRS under the notion that he had become some sort of immortal bat. Happens to also be Wayne's last name.

Bring It Back Bangers! Classic Beats Concocted From Your Favorite Past Time Toonies

Throughout the age of beat conductors, from basement boom-bap bruisers to chromed out MPC rulers, music's elite vinyl hogs have always sought for that killer sample. Whether it be a dusty horn, eerie horror movie loop, raunchy porn sequence, slick talking pimp slap used as a percussion hit, or coked out guitar riff, producers have endured endless nights in search of that forbidden sound. Sometimes, after taking a break from their odyssey to enjoy a splendid spliff or three, a common after effect seems to emerge. This effect has been coined, "the munchies", and during this ever so enjoyable occasion, one tends to compliment "the munchies" with a bowl of cereal and (you guessed it dickhead) classic cartoons (or porn, but lets stick to cartoons). And that's when Bob Marley and Stephen Hawkings go on a zanex binge and these producers create some of the most perfect beats our audio canals can ever consume.

Pimpin' Pens brings you these untimely classic toony cuts guaranteed to have you pop open that jar of greenery and go crate digging for hours:

The Supervillian emerged in the early 90's with the ultra fresh KMD crew to only disappear after several side winding downturns and then re-emerge as one of music's greatest unseen faces.

His debut classic "Operation Doomsday" shocked the streets, especially that ridiculous Scooby Doo sample.

MF Doom's legendary "Hey" produced by Metal Fingers:

After being forced to change their name from the impeccably hard as fuck SmifnWesson to Cocoa Brovaz, many hard knocks thought this Boot Camp Clique duo would never be the same.

Then bam! Smack in the rotten atoms apple drops "Super Brooklyn" and the cyphers started going bonkers. This may have propelled the group to grab their nuts, say fuck the world, and change back their name to SmifnWesson, thank you Tek and Steele.

Cocoa Brovaz super nusty "Super Brooklyn" produced by DJ Rob:

Notorious amongst the independent scene, this group has consistently released dope records since the underground movement propelled by Company Flow in the mid 90's. During that come up, 7L and the Esoteradactile blessed this tight burner upon middle white NY kids everywhere.

7L definitely did a sweet job with the transformers sample while Eso tore it up with that mid 90's wordy style.

7L & Esoteric's underground smash "Be Alert" produced by 7L:

What can I say, The Alchemist has never made a wack beat. Ever! This cat has laced hip hop's grimiest rappers with golden beats his whole career. Never one to let others take all the shine, Alchemist has dropped several instrumental joints for the true beat connoisseur in us all.

This banger exquisitely samples a spidey theme from back in the day to perfection. Truly magnificent work.

Alchemist's major raw "Guns is Razors" produced by Aly Al Alchemist:

Bonus Junt! B-B-Bonus Junt!

We had to honor the god P-Tone with a sacrificial vid instead of those little imeem players like them over there. We had to, especially this razor sharp classic from the maniacal record "Ironman".

Rae the Chef diesel and Ghostdini slaughter this shit right here, I mean they make mince meat out of this speedy beat. Perfect display of golden era hip hop at its best.

Ghostface Killah's "Daytona 500" produced by the pointy ring king RZA:

Here's a towel to wipe the sticky load you just busted from this imperial display of rawness:

Teaser Alert! Planet B-Boy in Theatres Now...

Lets give a nod to one of the four basic elements that comprise this culture we so fondly embrace. A pillar during a monumental age in music, when hip hop's forefathers barely scratched the surface with vinyl, before rap's pioneers developed complicated rhythms and cadence (to then be inherited by halftard emcees), there existed an art form as necessary to our subculture as the rustoleum giants who carpeted the city with marquee pieces: The B-Boy. From looking like some crack head Olympic sprinters and shit in "Flashdance" and "Wildstyle" to the epic performers on, umm..."Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew"? (What the fuck man! Is this all we got for B-Boys now of days!), these bouncy contortionists paved the way for all your super fly leaning, popping, locking, snapping, head up your ass juggling a midget while sipping pimp cups doing hand to hands on the corner dances. Pimpin' Pens pays homage, we tip our fury kangols to the Rock Steady and Cold Crush crews of the past, and drop daps to the new generation of hydros, flares, head spinning footwork freaks of the future. Go peep that flick yo!

Planet B-Boy France:

Planet B-Boy Korea:

Directed/Produced/Edited by the magnificent Bensen Lee. Visit for more info.

Can't Stop Won't Stop! Planet B-Boy Around the Globe:

On the really real, this film looks extremely tight. Pimpin' stamp of approval homie.
