Cameos from D.M.C. (Run D.M.C.) & Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest). I have one question: Is Consequence's 'grill' the consequence of that same car accident that had Kanye West coppin' new grills? Inquiring minds...

Another one bites the dust. This song is dedicated to DMX. He hasn't been charged yet with animal cruelty for the 12 'distressed' pit bulls the cops found at his Cave Creek, AZ home, but you better believe that they are coming. According to The Arizona Republic, the police also found three dead dogs buried on the property and about a 1/2 pound of alleged narcotics in the master bedroom. Oh, and of course they found a cache of assault-type weapons. Yep, you best believe the charges are coming.
I really don't like animals and I am actually frightened by most, so that's why I don't own any. I mean had a cat before, but only because where I lived at the time had major mice infestation issues. My boyfriend at the time took care of that cat, and good thing too. I have a lot of things going on and having a pet is like having another child. Feeding him, changing litter boxes, grooming, trips to the vet, and the attention that you have to give, all that comes with owing a cat. Sorry but there is just not enough time in the day, I am a hard working single mother. I know I'm a lousy pet owner, so that's why when I got rid of my man, I made him take the cat with him. No need to make the cat suffer.
That being said, I am in no way feeling the cruelty to animals thing. Just because I'm not a fan of pets does not mean that I would want any harm to come their way. But he should have made arrangements to have his dogs taken care of in his absence by someone that was responsible. Especially since we all know about Mike Vick's issues. Black men wake up! You know that everything you do is looked at through a microscope, and sifted through with a fine tooth comb. DMX should not be in this mess right now, he's been in this situation previously back in 2002, way before Mick Vick ever was. Do we even learn from our mistakes?

According to SOHH.com, the new Wu Tang Clan album 8 Diagrams is set to release on November 13 on Loud Records. Steve Rifkind brought the dead to life again by relaunching the defunct imprint, and Wu Tang Clan has been reassembled.
"We're rekindling flames," RZA said. "There's a strong potential this could be a long campaign, so this will keep us on the road together, on TV together, and keep us working together."
I can't wait for the new single to drop, I need to see if they still have the cohesion they had in the past.
Here's a blast from the past.

The new Public Enemy album "HOW YOU SELL SOUL TO A SOULLESS PEOPLE WHO SOLD THEIR SOUL???" is due out August 7th. I have a big thing for Chuck D. He is not all that cute, but he can stimulate me with his mind any day. I commend brother Chuck D. for sticking by Flavor Flav, even after he is still going through with Flavor Of Love III. SMH. Look at me talking shit when I know I'll probably be right there glued to the TV to check out FOL III myself,lol. It's like a car accident or train wreck or something, you can't help but look.
Public Enemy ~ Harder Than You Think
The new season of the Boondocks is coming out his fall, yay!!! Well, it's about time! I got tired of watching season one. Some people seem to think Aaron McGruder is a sellout, but I think he tells it like he sees it and the truth hurts sometimes. What's your thoughts on the Boondocks? Are you a fan like me?

OK, I'm about about to switch the flow up a little and show a different side of Nik. I love music of all types, and my MP3 player is proof of that. I love Queen, which I'll admit is a little weird coming from a chick hailing from out some of the grimiest hoods in South Philly. Coming up my friends thought it was crazy to listen to "36 Chambers" and then switch up to "Queen's Greatest Hits". They said that I had a inner white girl inside me named Amy and made jokes and stuff. I explained that a lot of hip hop is influenced by groups like Queen, and they were sampled heavily. Then I let them listen to songs like "Under Pressure","We Are The Champions", and "We Will Rock You" and they thought they were cool once they realized that that recognized their work.
Here is my favorite Queen song. This song is one of the greatest rock songs ever written.
Queen ~ Bohemian Rhapsody
R.I.P. Freddie Mercury
This is a hip hop version of the song done by a group called The Braids. The song was featured on the soundtrack for that terrible movie "High School High" with Mekhi Phifer and Melinda Williams.I guess The Braids was a "one-hit-wonder" because I never heard from them again. I liked this version though.
