The team from Obsessive Sneaker Disorder was in full effect this weekend.

I don’t see how you can call yourself a sneaker fiend and you still haven’t tuned in to their weekly Wednesday night program.

I’m going crazy with my handycam right now. Here’s some footage from the party on Friday night, plus me harassing some sneakerhead hindudes on the subway. Female sneaker fiends are killing shit in the game right now.

Fellas, step your game up.

Best. Show. Evar.

fresh prince

How many of you were stuck on watching the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ television show? No matter what I was into I tuned to this program. I always wanted to put my manhood on that sweet mulatto Hillary.

Peep this video from U.K. Canadian rapper SHAD that copies the opening sequence from the television show. Good shit.

Never Forgetting Our Bornday…

I made this website public during the evening that Hurricane Katrina touched land in the Gulf Coast region. I literally sat at my computer in my parent’s basement and watched the newsfeeds from CNN to MSNBC that proclaimed the storm to be the worst in decades.

We all remember the fallout and wreckage from the days and months that would follow this disaster. For my generation, the high water mark in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans was a low point in American history. As we here at DP Dot Com celebrate the anniversary of this website we also want to remind our friends that just like the flood waters in Louisiana, the stakes are high.

Using an angry and pointed humor my buddy P-City created this video using a track from another former New Orleans native – Mystikal.

Shout to Young Ruby-On-Rails for this .gif

I have said time and again that Black folks should be banned from dog ownership. Michael Vick was just the tip of the iceberg. The real reason that Black people shouldn’t be allowed to own dogs is because they don’t pick up their dogs shit.

White people will buy specially made organic biodegradable recyclable plastic bags to caress their dog’s feces. Black folks leave their dog shit on the street to evaporate.

What usually happens is that I step in it.

I see this as just another offensive example of Black on Black grime.

You Can Get With This, Or You Can Get With That…

BILLY X. SUNDAY says just get with it and register to vote.

The battle between KanYe and Fifty Cent was exactly one year ago. It was as exciting to see as a heavyweight wrestling match. KanYe was the brash, young contender and Fifty was the veteran. The hype and buildup was the best thing Hip-Hop has done in a while. No event this year generated the hype of that contest. The NaS album following Lil’ Wayne’s blockbuster has been our biggest story, but even that doesn’t come near the KanYe/Fifty publicity machine.

What the backstory of the KanYe/Fifty battle shows is that when people are motivated and activated they respond publicly. It was a great time for America in my opinion because it showed that we have a voice. We elected skinny jeans over white tee shirts. Basically. In many ways it was a test for the battle for the White House that drops this November. The Democrats are definitely the colorful cool kids while the Republicans are the older thugged out dudes. Think about it…

The Republicans have been using the model of block bully intimidation for their foreign and domestic policies. They were only fucking with the cats that couldn’t defend themselves on their own. Whether it was poor Iraqis or poor people from New Orleans the Republicans talked tough and showed them the bottom side of their boots. This is basically how Fifty Cent administers himself through rap music. Ja Rule was his Iraq. Fifty stays constantly getting at other rappers too simialr to U.S. foreign policy.

The Democrats are definitely the new, young hipster rap faction for the political world. Just because the Dems wear skinny jeans and crispy sneakers I don’t think that will make them light in the waist when it comes to dealing with other countries. Look how international the skinny jeans set is right now. M.I.A., Double O from Kidz In The Hall, SantoGold, I don’t remember who else right now, but all these cats are from other countries. My point is that the Democrats will be able to bridge the international divides that have been created by the current presidential administration.

You may like to listen to thugged out rap music. I’m not gonna say that shit is totally washed up either. Fifty has a few more incredible songs in him. I don’t know if I want to invest my vote in him for a whole album though. Where as KanYe is about to record an entire album using that vocoder autotune T-Pain device. That shit is going to be fire in the fucking clubs. My vote is going to KanYe West. At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter who we vote for just as long as register and vote.

Show the tall Israelis that run these record companies (and our country) that you are activated.
