Push It To The Limit, On And Off The Track / Oregon University Track and Field Runner Celebrates Too Early and Loses (Video)

Simply put, I love this video. Not only is this a lesson for track athletes, but this is also a life lesson. From the jump, in Track101 you learn to run through the finish line- so I don’t know what Tanguy Pepiot of the University of Oregon was doing?!? Probably watching Usian Bolt way too much lol. Runner Space interviewed Pepiot after the race… “I thought I was by my self, like, far in front of the second guy,” Pepiot said. “I saw [Simon] on the screen, I tried to pick up, he…

Prince Ea “BACKWARDS RAPPERS” Official Music Video

WHOA! My words can’t even begin to speak on the complexity of this record. In “Backwards Rappers” Prince Ea does what Nas does on “Rewind” but even better! He literally wrote a 16 that is split in half and can be rapped both forward and backwards. And not only does it make sense, but the meaning is completely flipped. He goes from being a generic commercial rapper who only spits about popping bottles and getting money to rapping about knowledge and education being the solution. If you appreciate good music,…

Masta Ace “Beautiful” Official Music Video/ Throwback Post

Easily one of my favorite Masta Ace records”Beautiful” came out a year after graduating from high school and I was off on a new journey, life was beautiful. Its mind boggling to me that the Youtube view count is less than 1,000,000 hits. This is one of those rap/ hip hop records that many so-called “rap fans” haven’t even heard… and its a classic! The hook is dope and his rhymes are on point while he still paints a beautiful picture. And even if you’ve heard it before, just press…

MC Lyte ft Common “Dear John” Official Record/ #EducateOURMen

Damn after at least 10 years since I’ve heard any music from MC Lyte, she drops some new heat just as it’s starting to get colder up here in the North East. As always, she’s spitting some knowledge that needs to be heard by many of y’all brothas out here. And with the help of Common and 10Beats, y’all can relate to the message; Take Care of Yours! And I’m feeling how they used the hook which poses one of Puffy Daddy’s signature lines into a question~ “Dear John” is…

Pat The Roc “I Was Not A Star” (Inspirational Video)

The world’s best basketball dribbler, Patrick Robinson aka Pat the Roc, comes through with an inspiring video that talks about the struggle and hard work that he went through to get where he currently is. He was not always a star. Not to say any star has always had it easy, but he was never in any kind of spot light or top position, which most NBA players for example, have always experienced. Now, those same NBA players are having private dribbling sessions with him. I enjoyed this piece and…
