Seems like everyone is talking about this track. For what? It aint that great. Hes going after Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, they cant even retort. LOL. 2Pac has the hardest dis record of all time, "I fucked your bitch you fat mother fucker," sorry but he won after the first sentence.

RIP YNOT TKO - Saint Louis

I didnt know Brandon. But as fate would have it I was talking to him on the phone doing a friend a favor to get him some money. I told him I would text him when he could pick up his money. At 10:46am Brandon texted me back "Cool Good Looking Out."
Then this happened that very same night.

Wheat pasting (Its the new black)

Jessica Alba is under criminal investigation for daring to take a stand on behalf of great white sharks — in Oklahoma!Oklahoma City cops tell us the city’s Director of Parks and Recreation — Wendell Whisenhunt — filed a police report after photos surfaced of Alba allegedly defacing electrical boxes, a bridge and a United Way billboard. Alba was on a mission, gluing posters that are part of a campaign to save the great whites.The problem — the glue is so gnarly the posters aren’t coming off. Cops say they want to have a chat with Alba, who’s in town filming a movie.

WTF... Dash Snow (Sace IRAK) Dead At 27

Years ago I read about the wild nights that were published about the infamous IRAK crew outta NYC. I remember their motto was "live like every night is new years eve." I became a big fan of the crew and specifically Sace who reminded me of a East Coast Gkae. When I visited NY Sace had the city crushed.

One night I was at my local bar in Hollywood and Sace walks in. I had been briefly introduced to him early in the day so I said whats up, introduced myself again and a friend I was with. Sace was asking us how to get to Echo Park, he needed to get to a bar out there. My homie was like fuck it ill take you out there. We all hopped in the car and chilled at a bar together until the night ended. Sace knew the owner of the bar and I video taped him catching tags inside the bar. The whole time I asked a bunch of questions, all the while trying not to jock too hard but dam, you could equivilate this to a basketball fan meeting and hanging out with Michael Jordan. I never saw or talked to him again, cant say I knew him too well but as I learned of his death today it is way more touching than that Michael Jackson shit. I actually was a fan of Sace, I met and hung out with him, he was taken far too early just like the other infamous NYC legends like Harold Hunter and Justin Pierce. RIP Sace my condolences to your family and crew.

Dash Snow, New York Artist, Dies at 27

Mordechai Rubinstein
Dash Snow
Dash Snow, a promising young New York artist, died Monday night at Lafayette House, a hotel in Lower Manhattan. He was 27 and lived in Manhattan. His death was confirmed by his grandmother, the art collector and philanthropist Christophe de Menil, who said that Mr. Snow had died of a drug overdose.

Mr. Snow gained prominence after being featured in an article titled “Warhol’s Children” that appeared in New York magazine in 2007. He worked in video and photography and also developed a distinctive collage style that fused and contrasted found images in fresh and suggestive ways. He exhibited in galleries and museums in New York, Los Angeles and Europe.

Ms. de Menil said that he had been in rehabilitation in March and had been off drugs until very recently.

Heres a article from a few years back
Chasing Dash Snow
At 25, he is a growing downtown legend, a graffiti writer turned artist with a beautiful face and a De Menil pedigree, elusive even to the two friends who created his myth. What happens if he’s caught?

Dash on High Line.
(Photo: Cass Bird)
The artist Dash Snow rammed a screwdriver into his buzzer the other day. He has no phone. He doesn’t use e-mail. So now, if you want to speak to him, you have to go by his apartment on Bowery and yell up. Lorax-like, he won’t come to the window to let you see that he sees you: He has a periscope he puts up so he can check you out first.

Partly, it comes from his graffiti days, this elusiveness, the recent adolescence the 25-year-old Snow spent tagging the city and dodging the police. “He’s pretty paranoid about lots of things in general, and some of it was dished out to him, but others he’s created himself,” says Snow’s friend, the 27-year-old artist Dan Colen, who—like so many of their friends—has made significant artistic contributions to the ever-expanding mythology of Dash Snow. Colen and Snow went to London together this fall for the Saatchi show in which they both had work. (Saatchi had bought one of Colen’s sculptures for $500,000.) Saatchi got them a fancy hotel room on Piccadilly. They had to flee it in the middle of the night with their suitcases before it was discovered that they’d created one of their Hamster’s Nests, which they’ve done quite a few times before. To make a Hamster’s Nest, Snow and Colen shred up 30 to 50 phone books, yank around all the blankets and drapes, turn on the taps, take off their clothes, and do drugs—mushrooms, coke, ecstasy—until they feel like hamsters.

A Note From the Editors
If you want to find Snow, you have to find Colen, or Snow’s other best friend, the 29-year-old photographer Ryan McGinley, who four years ago became the youngest person ever to have a solo show at the Whitney. That show, “The Kids Are Alright,” depicted a downtown neverland where people are thrilled and naked, leaping in front of graffiti on the street, sacked out in heaps of flannel shirts—everything very debauched and drug-addled and decadent, like Nan Goldin hit with a happy wand. Part of what made McGinley so famous (like Goldin before him) was that he offered not just an artist’s vision of a free and rebellious alternative life but also the promise that he was actually living it, through photos that looked spontaneous, stolen, of an intimate cast of characters, a family of friends, and in McGinley’s case, of Snow in particular. In some ways, Snow has been his muse.

“I guess I get obsessed with people, and I really became fascinated by Dash,” says McGinley, who shares a Chinatown loft a few blocks away from Snow’s apartment with Dan Colen, whom McGinley has known since they were teenage skateboarders in New Jersey. The apartment used to be a brothel; for a long time, Chinese men would come to the door and be disappointed when McGinley or Colen answered it. McGinley shows me his photos of Snow over the years, dozens and dozens of them. Snow with cornrows, with a shaved head, with a black eye. There is one photo called Dash Bombing that was in the Whitney show: a shadowy shot of Snow out on a ledge, tagging a building in the night sky, Manhattan spread out below him. It’s an image of anarchic freedom, one that seems anachronistic and almost magical in this city of hermetically sealed glass-cocoon condo towers. It’s as if Snow were an animal—prevalent in the seventies, now thought to be extinct—that was spotted high over the city.

“I actually don’t like graffiti,” McGinley says. “I was just interested in the person that would write their name thousands and thousands and thousands of times. These kids that would go up on a rooftop, 40 stories up, and go out on a ledge to write their name—it’s just, like, the insanity of it all!” McGinley smiles his clean smile. “It’s funny to me that Dash has become like a rock star, but he’s so paranoid. That comes from graffiti culture—like, you want everybody to know who you are and you’re going to write your name all over the city, but you can’t let anyone know who you really are. It’s, like, this idea of being notorious.”

And because notoriety is crucial to something much larger than graffiti culture, Dash Snow is becoming a kind of sensation. Young people poured out onto Joey Ramone Place waiting to get into his last show at Rivington Arms gallery. He had a piece in the Whitney Biennial—a picture of a dog licking his lips in a pile of trash and several other Polaroids. You may not be able to find him, but you can hear his name, that zooming syllable—Dash!—punctuating conversations in Chelsea galleries and Lower East Side coke parties and Miami art fairs and the offices of underground newspapers in Copenhagen and Berlin, like a kind of supercool international Morse code. Because the art world loves infamy. Downtown New York City loves infamy—needs it, in fact, to exist.

4th Of July Weekend

RIP Steve (AIR) Mcnair

This dude was the shit back in the day RIP

There was another strange and tragic celebrity death as former NFL quarterback Steve McNair was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds. His mistress 20 year-old Sahel Kazemi was also found dead at the Nashville, Tennessee condo. McNair had several bullet wounds, and Kazemi was found with a single shot to the head.
McNair was 36 and played 13 seasons before retiring in April 2008. He was married to Mechelle McNair. and they had four sons. A police spokesman said authorities were still investigating the shootings which they are calling a murder-suicide.
Police officers responded at the scene after receiving a call about injured persons inside the condo. When they arrived at the site, they found a man and woman shot to death inside the residence. The condominium is one that McNair was known to frequent, but a police spokeswoman said she didn't know if he was the owner.
In June, McNair opened a restaurant near the Tennessee State University campus. It was closed Saturday evening, but it had become a small memorial, with flowers, candles and notes placed outside the door.
On the restaurant's windows were messages: "We will miss you Steve" and "We love you Steve."
May Steve McNair and all who have recently passed on have a smooth transition to whatever is next for them. And may we all recognize that life is precious and can end at any moment
