One of my favorite videos demonstrating this is here.
"Dance with the devil- Immortal technique"
If you don't think this is good, then you are fucked up.
Another demonstrating his insane way of flowing is this...
"Point of no return- Immortal Technique"
He often shows his sometimes scary love of the Islamic method of worship/ways of life.
All in all, his style and sheer ability to express himself tops almost any rapper i've ever heard, and I'm sure Ezzy would agree with me. Good shit, seriously.

The weather here changes more quickly than Ruby Tuesday's stock value (in this case, falling)
If its going to be warm, be warm. If its going to be cold, be cold.
Stop literally jumping back and forth. I know this is just how the weather is in East Tennessee, but that doesn't mean I can't hope for change. I did vote for Obama after all.
Besides, I thought global warming was supposed to fix this shit anyway?
Anyway, I just thought about all this after I came across pictures of Knoxville from a snowy day in December.
Check out The Sunsphere Is Not A Wigshop if you're ever in the mood for good down home opinion, Knoxville style.
So I guess all that just inspired me to post some pictures of Maryville from the last batch of white stuff God the Chef cooked up.
I'll be posting the others as soon as I can find them on my hard drive. Its so crowded you would think... well, never mind, that isn't appropriate.

It comes as no suprise that once it dropped, everyone had to get a copy. Raekwon, knowing how dope the joint was, used his shrewd marketing skills gained from years of cooking and selling crack to mark his album in a way that would immediately identify it as his. The media standard of the era was of course the cassette tape, and Rae decided that the tape would be purple, rather than the clear or black norm. This caused the album to become more than "Raekwon's Album" or "Cuban Linx". No, it needed no name, and over the years that has stayed the same as any hip hop fan will immediately know what you mean when you say "Purple Tape".
This leads me to today. I am on somewhat of a quest to attain my own copy of said Purple Tape, and I began on ebay. Often times ebay is the only place to find something such as a cassette tape or VHS in our digital world, and it proved to be the easiest place to find this. The only catch?
Well just see for youself.
That is right. A tape that was released 14 years ago finds an ebay value of $46 6 days before the auction even ends. On a DEAD media no less. The genius wasn't in what it would do for the albums vibe when it came out, Raekwons decission to go 'urple has made it an indisputable collectors item. I MUST HAVE ONE. In celebration of this I will record my spiritual journey to finding my own Purple Tape, post it here for all to see. This weekend is Raekwon weekend, so get ready to party motherfuckers.
I just wanted to share this comment, which was the most recent comment when I viewed the video. If you go to the site you should see or at least find my response:
"she just was drunk and drive anybody was did it sometime? the diference is just that he was stop by the police so what she show a lot of education because she never make an upset answer she´s a ladie"

"Today marks the three year anniversary of the passing of one of hip hops most talented producers, James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla. In the clip above Elzhi, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson & Buff1talk to Hip Hop Official about what Dilla meant to their city and hip hop as a whole."
J Dilla was a true gem in the hip hop world, and unfortunately one that never really got to shine in the mainstream due to the fact that he was actually talented. His loss is one that we will never be able to measure. Rest in peace.
Also, Nero sent this to 2DopeBoyz this morning. A track he recorded over one of Dilla's finest beats. Enjoy.
I didn't think so.
What up, 420 Nation? The name's Ring, Ring Lardner to be exact. My main man Ezzy called me in to liven the site up a bit. Evidently he wants someone who hasn't had their faith in humanity ruined by unbearable faggotry. I'm not really sure what he's talking about, but I guess I'll have that revealed when I'm ready/have posted enough. Its sort of like being a Mormon.
But to stay with the theme of making an actual post, I want to talk about the greatness of the picture Ezzy posted last night. Is there a word for that other than brilliant? If you were to ask me, "Ring, if you had to explain America to an Alien from Planet X, what would you tell them about first?", my answer would be easy. I would tell them of George Washington leading the revolutionaries into battle on the back of his triceratops, as Angels flew on the backs of Pterodactyls and destroyed the Empire's ultimate WMD, the Death Star. I would of course share with them the timeless tales of heroism, such as Robocop defeating Darth Vader and Emperor Bin Laden by remembering the lessons he learned from his fallen Jedi Master, Steve Irwin. And I would teach them about the melting pot of cultures our great nation has always been, welcoming Christians, Jews, Muslims, Africans, Asians, Supermen, Aquamen, X Men, and other non-gays with open arms. And I would only be scratching the surface. In order for someone to truly understand America, they would not only have to hear the stories and see the picture, they would have to watch Indiana Jones, The Godfather, and The Muppet's. And probably The Sopranos, too.
That, my friends, is what America means to me.

But it is a much better performance than anything you've seen tonight.
As I speak, JT is playing on stage with a scarf and coat on. I guess its cold outside. In LA. Stop Grammys, please! Don't do this to us!

Little does he know that isn't even the expression. Unless of course he is referring to being full of chalk, therefore making him able to use his own pencil dick when writing on a blackboard or sidewalk. It still doesn't make sense, as money has nothing to do with chalk. I'm calling bullshit on this one. Chock full of shitty rap lines, maybe?
Thibodeau hit a pair of 3-point shots, one early in the game and the other late. The night was additionally special for Patrick as his father, Perry, the longtime team statistician, attended after suffering a stroke two weeks ago.
A friend and I were wondering the other day, and I decided that if I found out I would post it on here. So from One Man's Blog, here are instructions on how to make crack. Details are better on his site, and they include pics. I just didn't want to jack his post completely. It's not like you need detailed directions anyway. Or do you...?
Materials Required: Cocaine powder, teaspoon, measuring cup, pan, baking soda.
Pour about an ounce of cocaine in the measuring cup.
Add about a teaspoon of baking soda.
Fill with about 3/4 cup of water.
Pour the mixture into the pan.
The mixture will start to bubble. Get a knife and flatten the bubbles.
Continue to flatten the mixture while cooking it.
Continue to flatten the mixture while cooking it.
Cook it until it is solid white.
Continue to cook it until it is solid white.
Place the solid form of cocaine on a towel or napkin to drain.
Place rocks in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Place rocks in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Congratulations you have successfully made crack cocaine.
Well that was easy...
In addition to the other Zane-y happenings of the weekend, I wanted to take a minute to discuss what really matters.
It has become increasingly evident that Only Built For Cuban Linx... 2 will in fact happen. There have been a flurry of leaks recently, including Criminology 2, which should excite any hip hop fan enough to make them shit themselves. I for one never thought it would happen, much less come out and re-establish the Wu on top of the hip hop game.
But I might be wrong. Everything i have seen and heard suggests this album is going to be one of the top releases of 2009, with star studded guest spots and truly inspired efforts from the entire clan for the first time in ages.
What I am most excited about is the rumor that GZA and Inspectah Deck will be the co-stars this time around. Ghost will still play an improtant part in the album, I'm sure, but the fact is that Deck and Genius are two of the greatest MC's of all time, and the idea that they may be able to shine on the years biggest release is almost too much to handle.
I'll have more posted on this as it comes in, as will Jesus I'm sure. But keep your eyes and ears open...shit is about to get real in hip hop. Looks like Rae is about to stick up the game once again.
With a classic video. This was only released in New York, and replaced by a version that is less offensive to asians. ODB, best that ever did it. Some call him the Zane Winders of rap...ok, sorry, that was mean. ODB's legacy doesn't deserve that.
Of course you don't care! Which is exactly why you took the time to update your status from your phone... Weird.
I would like to thank Zane for the added publicity. Even after a week plus away from paying regular attention to the blog, we are well on our way to setting a one day visitor record here on 420 Chambers!

Zane is just glad someone cares enough about me to write so much! Love me or hate me. Just ask yourself. Do you really matter? 12:46am
Lol, I love the classic douche move of using lil wayne references, like Love me or hate me, wasn't that played out 6 months ago? If he really wants to do this I'm happy to rap battle his ginger ass.
The results are in...and yes, I do! Do you though? That is the question... There will be a poll up in the morning for the readers to decide.
Either way, Zane has agreed to do an interview, although I cannot promise it will be a success. Probably just us arguing. Ill have it posted in the next couple days. Oh, I almost forgot...
He plans to sign his LOI live-online with the 420 Chambers team! Thanks Zane, can't wait to see who the lucky team is.\\
Good news, we made Zane's list of dislikes!
Yes We Can!
Now for someone who everyday feels the need to tell us what is going on in his athletic life, takes picture of himself looking like a hard ass in the mirror and puts them on the internet, and is a general pussy at life it might suprise you that he is laughing at me. One would believe that he would in fact be laughing at his own faggotry instead of how pathetic I am. Further more, he should note that the public has spoken and feels that he is in fact the one to be laughed at (to the tune of 300+ hits for the average Zane post).
In the end, he has only brought more attention to the sight and his actions. While at the end of the day my posts may be nothing more than hateful, bitchy opinions, the fact that he found the site by GOOGLING himself only validates everything that I have posted. Our intent all along is to rid the world of douchebaggery one douche at a time, and he now will draw the full wrath of the site.
Thanks Zane, you really make all of this too easy.
You should know I count many "friends" of yours among my most loyal readers.
Post more pics asap! I need some more material!

Odds are he will announce on his facebook status, so we will have the coverage.
Speaking of Zane Status', we have a lot of make up work to do, including a couple of NOTES he posted. Stay tuned, sorry for the break. Not knowing where Zane will play caused sever lack of sleep and the doctor ordered that I rest. But thats over, and we now have round the clock Zane Watch!
