Friday, June 29th, 2012

With Meyhem Lauren’s collaboration project with Harry Fraud set to drop the Combat Jack Show welcomed them along with Alchemist’s new favorite rapper: AG da Coroner.

Respect The Fly Shit was produced during alcohol fueled vampire lifestyle nights while at the SxSW festival.

Lethal Weapon @ SummerStage…

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

When Action Bronson announced he’d be on the bill for the City Parks (SummerStage) show at Red Hook Park I knew he was gonna bring out Meyhem Lauren for at least a track.

I’m looking at the pictures of these dudes with the NYC sky turning to dusklight and I feel a sense of satisfaction from their accomplishments. Its a funny thing to actually know these cats and to break bread with them and to talk the artistry and lifestyle of a rap singer.

These dudes were all real before I even met them. Their trajectory is still pointed upwards and onwards. They gonna have to do a track now called ‘Excelsior’. Pardon me internets, I’m just in a New York state of mind.

Avengers Vs. X-Men…

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

For those of you still fuxing with the Marvel Comic’s series Avengers vs. X-Men I just uploaded a review of issues #4 and #5. I skipped reviewing #3 because I was lazy and the Avengers movie was getting all of my attention, but I’m back on this series now.

Verdict: The storyline has picked up but the artwork leaves much to be desired.

Let’s get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLE!

DP’s Legendary Toybox…

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

I’ve been fuxing with the Marvel Legends action figure series since the mid-2000s. At one point I was copping every figure in the series but that became too consuming to maintain so I sold off all the figures except for the ones related to Iron Man.

Hasbro toys, which has been making the figures for several years suspended the 1/6th series to develop the smaller 3.75″ Marvel Universe series. I copped a bunch of the Marvel Universe joints just because I’m an addict like that, but I never responded well to the smaller scale superhero figures. Listen, I go back to the days of the 8″ MEGO figures so even tho’ the details of the dolls was more glorious the smaller scale left me wanting more.

The good news I found out during my Wal-Mart visits while in Atlanta was that Hasbro started up the ‘Legends’ line again. I prA’li would have known this had I gone to NY’s ComiCON past year. Missing that event was a fanboy fail. Here’s what the first wave of Hasbro’s reinvigorated Marvel Legends line looks like…

Thor, Captain America (as Steve Rogers) and Iron Man fill out a nice little Avengers lineup just in time for the summer motion picture blockbuster. I doubt I’ll be copping anything other than the Iron Man Extremis armor figures since the new pricepoint for the figures is up to $16 apiece.

I’ve already picked up two(2) Iron Man figures in the stealth blue armor.

The traditional red and golden armor must be the ‘chase’ (variant) figure. None of the Wal-Marts I’ve visited have had them in stock. The collectors go after the ‘chase’ figures hardbody, hence the name. I’m gonna hit up a few more Wal-Marts before I leave Atlanta to see if I can comeup on the OG Iron Man armor color.

I didn’t have the Mark V stealth armor figure that dropped when the Marvel Legends series first debuted. I’ve seen that figure being sold for upwards of $200 at some comic shops but thankfully the price is down to something more reasonable. What’s also good that I don’t copp these figures as investment items. I buy these Iron Man joints to make music videos for Ghostface Killah songs I like.
