Sound Session #315 (6-12-11)

Posted in Episodes, Interviews, Sound Session on June 13th, 2011 by Hyphen

I initially intended to share some extended thoughts on the NBA season wrapping up last night, but then I went and forgot to eat food today.  Uh, whoops.  So I’ll make this quick cause my kitchen is callin’ me and for the most part, Bill Simmons expertly summed up many of my takeaways on the game, series, and Lebron’s incredible ability to avoid shooting alienate the entire viewing public in this piece.

Anyway, congrats to the Mavs and the big homey, Seattle’s own (and one of my Arizona Wildcats too) Jason Terry!  It was a very entertaining series, but after hockey’s game 7 and the NBA Draft pass, we’ll be down to just baseball and the WNBA for the summer.  Well, baseball, the WNBA, and the Women’s World Cup.  You think I’m joking, but I’m with it.  Word to Abby Wambach.

Musically, another great week, but y’all already know how we do.  Shout to good friend of SNSS, Royce Da 5’9″ for calling in to discuss his new Bad Meets Evil project with Eminem.  In stores today!

Travis Barker x Forever

Posted in Artists, Remixes, Videos on November 13th, 2009 by Hyphen

This dude is so ill on the drums.  Ridiculous.  Download link courtesy of the Dopehouse.

Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem – “Forever (Travis Barker Remix)”

Oh, and for the record: after further inspection, Lil Wayne remains thoroughly outclassed on this track.

Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem – Forever (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Sports on September 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

Honestly, this video is a little bit of a hot mess.  Hype’s shots just seem so boring these days, the performances aren’t anything special, and the clips from LeBron’s movie just make it all look odd.  Definitely would have been better served to not appear on the soundtrack and perhaps have a little more creativity with the scenes.  With my day job involving music videos, I see 10 cooler clips than this a day…which is pretty sad when you think about all the major players that were involved with this project.

That said:

“she insists she got more class…WE KNOW

is one of the hardest lines of the year.  Drizzy!

Lebron: “Thanks Rashard”

Posted in Sports, Videos on May 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

By now, I hope you’ve all seen Lebron’s incredible game winning three from last night, but if not, see above.  While this was clearly a great shot and an insta-classic NBA moment (Mo Williams = 2009 Thomas Hill), I’m still wondering one thing: what the hell was Rashard Lewis doing?

If you’re guarding the inbounder, you have a couple different options:

  1. Get up as close as possible to pressure the ball and make the pass difficult.  Rashard is 6’10″ with long arms…Mo’s like 6’1″…if you’re pressuring on the ball heavy, there’s no way Mo gets a clean pass off.
  2. Turn around and front Lebron off the ball.  As Kenny Smith mentioned on the TNT post-game coverage, Williams wasn’t going to pass that ball to anyone else.  The whole world knew it was going to Bron Bron, so if you don’t want to pressure the ball, put two on Bron and front him with your back to the ball.

Instead, Rashard got caught in two minds and did neither.  He was worried about the lob to the rim (which only would have tied anyway) so he inexplicably backed up in the direction of the basket.  That doesn’t prevent the lob at all, and in fact, makes it easier.  If he really wanted to take away the lob, he should have been pressuring the ball.  Then when Mo went to make an overhead pass to the top of the key, Rashard’s hands should have made that a difficult pass.

LOOOOL @ that halfhearted attempt to challenge Lebron’s shot too.  He got caught in no man’s land and then gave a fake effort to challenge the shot.  GTFOH.

But um, anyway.  WE ARE ALL WITNESSES!
