"So UniQ in the studio working on his sophomore album, set to release Fall of '09. Stay tuned for more updates and exclusives, as he shows you his creative journey , step by step, until the completion of this record. It's a guaranteed hit!"
KWill and I would like to wish everyone a very safe and Merry Christmas. The site has grown tremendously from when it started back in May, and thanks goes to all of you who have supported the site by visiting and contributing. KWill and I also have a lot planned for you guys in the New Year so stay tuned. Cox Communications pulled a Scrooge so KWill is without internet right now so maybe Santa will bring him some internet and a copy of that Gears 2. So to keep with the holiday spirit here is classic hip hop holiday song:
"Here is some NEW Sez Batters music. The mixtape is called, "Sweet Sixteen", and dropping today on Sez Batters' 25th birthday. It features 16 tracks, 16 verses, with 16 bars. Rather than do a "blog series", he decided to just put together this introductory mixtape as The Fly Boy Club continues to grow nationally."
"Enjoy ANOTHER new episode of, The Making Of “The Kid With The Green Backpack”. This time, we go behind the scenes in the studio as we bring in a string section for a couple of records on the album. Check it out."
Last Night I was up late roaming around and thought I'd check out the myspace and see what was new. When I was shocked to see this in our comment section:
You can see the sincerity in his eyes and the seriousness in his voice. Like a gentleman though he tips his hat to his foes and calls it quits. Simply ending the video with a, "Illprint is Dead."
Kwill and I wish you the best in whatever you wish to pursue and good luck with your future ventures. We hope you stick to writing because you crack us up with your comical stories and one liners. Don't be a stranger and continue to visit the site because we still want you to be a part of Hip Hop in Wichita.
Here's a new track to keep you tied over until tomorrow when XV drops a new track tomorrow. Also be looking out for his LP dropping the first quarter of 2009, "The Kid with the Green Backpack." X plans to also drop a mixtape by the end of the year compiled of tracks from 40D40N and tracks that didn't make the upcoming album.
As we plan for big things here at ICTHipHop in the coming year were curious to know what YOU would like to see. A forum? a concert? a meet and great? ICTHipHop awards? Contest? Just let us know. We are very serious, so hit the comment section and let us know.
Here's a new feature on the site that my wife came up with, in which we ask ICTHipHop artist 10 random questions to gain some insight on who they are as people and artist. I figured who better to get this started with than Mr. Personality himself, Mike Game.
1. Can you explain the Illprint movement?
THE ILLPRINT MOVEMENT IS BASICALLY JUST A FEW REGULAR GUYS DOING REGULAR HIP HOP. NO REAL GIMMICK OR IMAGE. JUST US DOING WHAT WE DO BEST, AND THATS RAP. ALOT OF PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND US AND THUS CALL US WACK, WHICH IS IGNORANT. BUT TO EACH ITS OWN. I HAVEN'T GOTTEN THIS FAR BY BEING WACK, SO FOR ANYONE, RATHER THEY RAP OR NOT, CALLING US WACK MEANS NOTHING TO US, UNLESS YOURE JESUS, IF JESUS CALLED US WACK THEN ID JUST KILL MYSELF. I MEAN IF IM SO WACK, WHY DO PEOPLE GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO WORK WITH ME? YOU OTHER RAPPERS GOTTA ASK YOURSELF, IF YOU WERE WACK WOULD YOU RAP? AND IF YOU SAY NO, THEN YOU GOTTA THEN ADMIT YOU KNOW IM NOT WACK. I KNOW WHY WE GET HATED ON, BECAUSE YOU DONT UNDERSTAND US. THE MEDIA HAS PROGRAMMED YOU TO LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE, AND SINCE WE DONT SOUND LIKE THE SHIT YOU LIKE, THEN YOU ASSUME WERE WACK.
2. What is your favorite Mike Game diss?
MY FAVORITE DISS?? ONES IVE MADE OR ONES MADE BOUT ME? CUZ IF ITS THE FORMER, THAN ITS BY FAR "THE ANTICHRIST" BY XV. NIGGA WENT IN HARD AND LEFT ME WITH REALLY NO ROOM FOR RETALIATION. AND IF ITS ONES IVE MADE THEN "GREEN LIGHT" ALL DAY. I MEAN I SHOWED I DIDN'T GIVE A FUCK, AND PEOPLE HATED IT, AND GUESS WHAT? SURPRISE, IM STILL FUCKING RAPPING
3. What album best describes your life?
THE ALBUM THAT BEST DESCRIBES MY LIFE?? I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO CALL IT. YEAH I DO, "PAPERCUT CHRONICLES" BY GYM CLASS HEROES. THAT ALBUM THERE CONVEYS MY DAILY EMOTIONS. "PAPERCUTS" THE SONG TELLS THE STORY OF CONFLICTING LOVERS, WHICH IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH ME N EVERY GIRL IVE BEEN WITH. "CUPIDS CHOKEHOLD" HOW I ALWAYS FIND MYSELF WITH A NEW GIRLFRIEND SHORTLY AFTER DITCHING THE LAST AND "PETRIFIED LIFE" JUST DESCRIBES A CONSTANT DAILY STRUGGLE TO FIND A BALANCE BETWEEN DEPRESSION AND COPING. WHICH WHEN IM NOT MAKING SONGS BOUT DOING NASTY THINGS TO SOMEONES SISTER OR MOTHER, I HAVE A HARD TIME WITH. BUT THATS A SUBJECT ILL EXPAND ON LATER IN MY MUSIC
4. Would you have really called Young Buck a bitch to his face (you know he stabbed someone, right?)?
IF I CALLED YOUNG BUCK A BITCH TO HIS FACE, HE WOULDVE DONE SOME N-WORD SHIT, GOT LOCKED UP, GOT ME FREE PUBLICITY. AND KNOWING HOW SPITEFUL 50 CENT IS, HED PROLLY SIGN ME JUST SO WHEN I SUE YOUNG BUCK 50 CENT WOULDNT HAVE TO PAY ME, AND ID BE THE FIRST GUY FROM WICHITA TO I GUESS "BLOW UP"
5. We know you mess heavily with the purple one... so... What is your favorite Prince song?
YOU KNOW, THATS NOT EVEN FAIR. THATS LIKE GOING UP TO SOMEONE WITH 9 KIDS TELLING THEM TO PICK THEY FAVORITE. BUT IF IMA HAVE TO CHOSE, ITS EITHER GOING TO BE LITTLE RED CORVET, PURPLE RAIN, OR CALL MY NAME
6. If you could do a track with an artist, living or otherwise, who would it be?
SHIT IT DEFINATELY WOULDNT BE WITH ANY RAPPER. BECAUSE I AM NOT GETTING ATE BY NAS ON MY RECORD, MAYBE IF IT WAS A K SLEEP RECORD FEATURING ME AND NAS, NAS WOULD EAT US BOTH, BUT ID BE ABLE TO REST KNOWING IT WASNT MY SONG TO BEGIN WITH.
NAW ID PROLLY DO SOME SHIT WITH KURT COBAIN, NIRVANA IS MY FAVORITE BAND THATS NOT HIP HOP OR PRINCE
7. What do you think will happen to the world on December 21st, 2012?
THE SAME SHIT THAT HAPPENED JAN 1 2000, THE WORLDS GON KEEP GOING MAN. IM CHRISTIAN TO FAULT AT TIMES, SO EVERYONE GOING OFF SOME SHIT THAT AINT IN THE BIBLE, THEN I BASICALLY DONT ACCEPT IT FOR ANYTHING
8. Fill in the blank. Money, Cash, (blank).
MONEY, CASH, MENTHOLS
9. What do you want for Christmas?
WHAT DO I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS? HONESTLY, THIS MIGHT NOT SEEM HIP HOP OR WHATEVER WHATEVER, BUT ID REALLY LIKE TO HAVE LOVE IN MY LIFE. EVER SINCE ME N THE EX SPLIT, WITH OUT HER, I REALLY DONT FEEL COMPLETE, I JUST WANNA BE COMPLETE AGAIN, YA KNOW?
10. What did you really think of RIP Mike Game by TTH?
MAN I CANT EVEN ANSWER THAT WITH OUT SOMEONE GETTING MAD. BUT FUCK IT, WHO WOULD I BE IF I WASNT MAKING SOMEONE MAD?
"RIP MIKE GAME" IS BY FAR, THE BEST SONG THEYVE EVER MADE. ITS CREATIVE AS FUCK, AND CLEARLY THEY REACHED THE APEX OF WHAT THEYLL ACCOMPLISH AS RAPPERS WITH THAT TRACK. BEFORE MIKE GAME, THEY WERE JUST SOME RAPPERS, AFTER THAT TRACK, THEY NOW ARE "THAT ONE GROUP WHO BEEFED WITH MIKE GAME". SOME FAME IS MORE FAME THAN NO FAME.
I MEAN SERIOUSLY, LISTEN TO THEY MIXTAPE, THEN LISTEN TO THEY LIL CLUB SONG THEY POSTED, THEN LISTEN TO RIP MIKE GAME. THEN YOULL SEE THAT THEIR HATRED FOR MIKE GAME FUELED THEIR ONLY GOOD SONG.
AND TO TTH, IM NO LONGER BEEFING WITH YOU, I WANTED TO CONTINUE IT, BUT IT FUCKS UP MY OVERALL CREATIVE BEING, WITH THAT SAID, ANYTIME YOU WANNA SPIT BOUT YOUR MUSE (MYSELF), FEEL FREE HOMIE. FUCK, YOU MAY EVEN GET MY DEAD WEIGHT CHAOS (YOUNG BUCK OF ILLPRINT) ON THE TRACK
TO WRAP IT UP, I APPRECIATE K WILL N J TONG FOR HOLDING DOWN THE SITE, ITS A GOOD THING, THOUGH MOST TIMES NIGGAS ONLY CARE BOUT THE DRAMA INVOLVED. AND SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY PEERS DOING IT. AND BY THE WAY, IVE COUNTED, AND I BELIEVE I HAVE THE MOST SONGS UP ON THE SITE. SO FOR A WACK NIGGA, IM QUITE CONSISTENT. IF YOU DONT LIKE MY MUSIC USE ME AS MOTIVATION. IN THE LAST 2 WKS IVE CLOCKED 120 HOURS AT THE TRADEPOST, WENT TO DRILL WEEKEND, AND STILL PUT OUT MORE MUSIC THAN YOU. NO EXCUSES. STOP CRYING
"DJ 3 wants to let all artist know he represents for his city. He will play any artist on his radio show (www.okrp.com) as long as the music is hot. Make sure you have your song bds registered! If you don't know how ask Kae Wun, XV, So Uniq or whoever you think may know. I rep for my city, always have and always will. The best dj in the midwest..."
Sorry for the Bobby Valentino reference... Lately, "Anonymous" post have flooded the site with ignorant and stupid comments. To stop this and keep the integrity of the site KWill and I have decided to only allow comments from registered users. Most of you guys already have a registered name, but this will stop the "impostors" from talking reckless.
