Wiz Khalifa "Burn After Rolling" Mixtape Artwork


I'm still not sure about this kid's music but I saw him at that Better Recognize Showcase and he was pretty fresh. I sort of enjoy this concept and cover. Good shit !

*I won't be posting any music this time but these guys can take care of you

Nowhere Boy (Trailer)


Filmed in Liverpool about the life of a certain John Lennon. Peculiar ill rapper shit I agree.

Rosa Acosta x Terry Richardson ! Now with Video !


Quick but umm, viral video from over at SupremeNewYork. What a crazy looking bitch. Although I'm gonna have to agree w/ Lan and say she does have a manly face. Honestly, it's that ass.

Charlamagne Tha God's 39 Minute Conversation W/ Beanie Sigel


At times the Philly nigga sounds like he's crying. This is crazy. He's goes into so much one-sided detail and distress about the situation that a lot of people are feeling just sad. Especially because it really feels like he's sad about everything. My thoughts honestly are too much to write here quickly but I just wanna say this. I understand both sides. We don't have to hear Jay talk specifically on this record to know how he feels. Beans didn't paint him as a snake, just maybe as not a real enough nigga that he would take care of his own. How much someone as bright and as done with all the bullshit, and as already home, and as innocent as Jay-Z should take care of Philly niggas? I dunno. My man can't be stopped and I don't think I want him to.

Listen to the whole conversation here

Jay-Z x New York Magazine Interview


Hov in a good mood? Priceless.


"I think after a year with DJ Hero I’m gonna start D.J.-ing parties like Q-tip and all those guys. I already got a whole plan: I’m gonna work on this for a year, then I’m gonna get me a little Serato set, work on that for another six months. Then I’m gonna find out who makes the most. I’m gonna charge double that. I’m gonna do a tour, bar mitzvahs, weddings. I’m gonna have like video ... I’m telling ya’ll, 'cause I don’t want nobody stealing my idea … I’m gonna have, like, video behind me. Dancers. I’m gonna have people pour champagne when I get to a certain song. I’m gonna make a whole show of this thing."


"I actually predicted the Yankees in six with the Angels, so I think I’m like Jigga the Greek. I’m gonna say, Phillies are a bit tougher than the Angels. I’m gonna take Yankees in seven. Dramatic A-Rod walk-off at the end of the game redeeming him for all the time the papers and the media vilified him. Is that specific enough?"

I usually don't post low quality stuff like this but what's talked about is real interesting so more so of something to watch, check it out for the info spilling. Kiss talks about having a kid that's almost in High School who he lets hear all his stuff before it comes out. I never knew Kiss to be a pops like that. Crazy to think.

Jay-Z To Perform At Game 1 of the New York Yankees World Series


You say Hov lost it, you say he's not the best to ever do this, you hate him, he's weak, he sold out right? I don't wanna hear it ! My man kills this game. Every time I turn around he's doing something else that's never been done. He takes the term "power move" to a whole different level and all the while remaining cool and never corny. He was my first non-related T.Shirt post on this website for one reason. Jay-Z is a muuhhfuckin' ill rapper. Catch him and Miss Alicia keys performing their new smash New York anthem "Empire State Of Mind" before Game One of the World Series Wednesday, October 28th. Go Yankees. New York all day.

*New Music* Timbaland x Drizzy Drake

1,000th Post On www.illrapper.com *Black October*


Remember Black October? You probably don't unless you've been riding with me this past year. It was the first thing I ever put on this blog back when I thought I'd keep it as a T.Shirt only site. What a crazy kid I am. Within 2 weeks I was posting other stuff, artists, music, fashion, news I thought was interesting. Slowly illrapper.com became the behemoth you check now. Slowly I saw the potential here. Slowly but surely. Now 1,000 posts later, we're back in October, Black October, where it all began.
