Why the hell was this never released? A few things could be tightened up, but the video is cool and the song was an insta-classic as soon as that first College Dropout advance leaked. Ah…those were the days. Senior year of college…the memories!

Another day, another dope mixtape…this one from the homey Roosevelt Treasurechest, GLC, and the fine folks over at Ruby Hornet. It featues a bunch of new tracks, unreleased joints, and live performances from GLC, which should get you ready for his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music project, Love, Life, and Loyalty, coming in 2009. While you wait for that, bump this.
I love studio footage, especially when it involves Kanye To The. Paparazzi squabbles aside, ‘Ye’s life must be great. He literally flies all around the world with his best friends, making dope music in amazing studios. Sounds pretty good to me. In related news, if you haven’t heard yet, 808’s and Heartbreak has been unofficially pushed up to November by Kanye himself. We’ll see if Def Jam acquiesces.

Damn, I thought Shawn Jackson had a surprising number of videos off of one project when he dropped his 4th last week, but this is like the 7th from Cons’ last album. Apparently his grind has paid off nicely cause the sales numbers for Don’t Quit Your Day Job are pretty impressive for a project of that size. The song features his G.O.O.D. Music cohorts, GLC and Really Doe, along with cameos from all sorts of dope artists.
Sidenote: I wonder if the Pomona that GLC mentions is supposed to be the one in Cali. If so, that brings back classic college memories…like the time in 2004 when Tunji told GLC his haircut sucked, almost leading to a physical altercation. His most famous verse up to that point was on Kanye’s “Heavy Hitters” joint and included a line saying “mmhmm, mmhmm, NAW, your hair sucks!” (classic delivery btw). Luckily he remembered and figured out the reference, but not before giving Tunj the ultimate screwface. Good times.
