At Last!

Wow, 2 posts in one night! It really is the season of giving. Well anyway, the Giants finally pulled the trigger and did something this off-season. We acquired Aaron Rowand on a 5 year $60 million deal, he played for the Phillies last year.. he'll give the Giants offense SOME sort of pulse. He's no Bonds but he's also not roided out =/

Hope he's ready for a loooong season.


Say Hello to the Bad Guy

Remember the Grey Album? Well another DJ has done it again with Jay-Z's new album.. DJ Skee (I'm not really familiar with him) has mashed up the American Gangster Acapella album with the soundtrack from the Godfather. It's going to be called "American Godfather" Here's a trailer for it:

Should be interesting!

Amidst madness

Yes we've all seen the Fully Flared video at this point. I'm not gonna say anything except YES the skating is awesome, YES that when you thought their skits couldn't crazier Spike Jonze uped the ante(intro>!?), and YES it is the video of the year.

I'm gonna go into my little corner in the Peninsula to bust out some nostalgia amonst this madness of Fully Flared and show a little part from my friend Mike Sutter. If you're from the peninsula you have probably met him one way or another. In a lack of a better term, he's EVERYWHERE. Enjoy his part. Thanks

P.S ASB SOUTH CITY ALL DAY!You know what it is Mike!

Masters of Innovation

The first thing on my mind when I woke up today was getting a copy of Fully Flared in my hands. So Kyle and I headed down to Pacific Drive Skate shop and picked it up as well as some EZ Js sandwiches.

Let the show begin

Hmm.. as far as a critique of the video, I'd have to say Guy's part was one of my favorites. I was disappointed in Pappalardo's part. The French connection part was really good. I guess what I'm saying is the video lived up to its expectations, expect Anthony. Sad. One word to sum of the video for me would be COMBOS. The whole video consists of combination grinds. Combo grinds must be learned to be be up to par with the OG's. But I definitely recommend the video. It definitely has set the bar for skateboarding for the next couple of years. Fully Flared did not disappoint. Get your skate on!!

Found out today that one of my favorite rappers and one of the kings of swag for the south, 1 part of UGK and one of the greatest sounding rappers(in my opinion) died today. Here's a excerpt from

Rapper was found in Los Angeles hotel room; official cause of death still undisclosed.

By Jayson Rodriguez

Pimp C of the long-running Texas hip-hop group UGK was found dead Tuesday (December 4) in a Los Angeles hotel room. He was 33.

Few details were available at press time, but according to TMZ, the rapper's body was found at the Mondrian Hotel Tuesday morning after the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a 911 call. The MC (real name: Chad Butler) was reportedly dead when officers arrived on the scene. The site also cites Captain Ed Winter of the county coroner's office as saying Pimp C may have died of natural causes. Winter reportedly told TMZ that no drug paraphernalia or drugs were found in the room, and it appeared that no one else was present at the time of Pimp C's death. He reportedly said an autopsy will be performed and toxicology test results will be available in six to eight weeks.

No official cause of death had been cited at press time.

A press release issued on behalf of his family Tuesday reads as follows:

"It is with great regret that I must confirm that Chad Butler, a.k.a. Pimp C, one half of the legendary UGK, was in fact discovered dead this morning.

"Manager Rick Martin is asking that everyone please respect his family and those close to him at this time and refrain from rumors and innuendo.

"A formal statement will be released later this afternoon. Thank you all for understanding."

That statement came from Pimp's manager, Rick Martin. It reads: "This morning saw the loss of a man that was not only a client, but a very dear friend at a time when he had the most to live for. He was my best friend and I will always love him. Chad's tragic passing leaves behind mourners the world over, including his mother, wife and children whom Chad loved more than anything. An official cause of death has yet to be determined.

"I was so very proud of Chad and the growth he has shown since his release from prison; as an artist and businessman and as a person. As one half of the legendary Texas group UGK, Chad was finally seeing the results of the years of love and labor that he and Bun B have put in over the years, culminating in the tremendous success of their album, Underground Kingz. Chad was set to soar with not only a new solo deal on Jive Records, but a lucrative publishing deal, a new satellite radio show, several group projects and a national cologne endorsement. Chad had everything to live for, making his unexpected passing a travesty.

"Right now, my number one concern is the well being and livelihood of his family who are the ones most deeply affected by this loss. All efforts will be made to ensure that they are properly cared for in this tragic time and beyond.

As Chad's friend and manager, and on behalf of his family and those closest to him, we ask that you, the press, keep reports of his passing to tributes to his amazing contributions as an artist and wait for the facts surrounding his death to come to light. Please let us all remember Pimp C as the kind and warmhearted man and rap music pioneer that he was."

Barry Weiss, president and CEO of Jive Records, UGK's longtime label, said in a statement released Tuesday: "We mourn the unexpected loss of Chad. He was truly a thoughtful and kind-hearted person. He will be remembered for his talent and profound influence as a pioneer in bringing southern rap to the forefront. He will be missed and our prayers remain with his family and Bun B. I've known Chad since he was 18, and we loved him dearly and he was a cherished member of the Jive family."

The Mondrian Hotel released the following statement to the Los Angeles Times: "Mondrian received calls this morning from the family of Chad Butler inquiring about his whereabouts. Mr. Butler had checked into the hotel on 28 November and, according to the callers, was to have checked out yesterday. Security personnel went to Mr. Butler's room and found him in bed, apparently expired. A 911 call was placed at about 9:20 a.m. and paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded and pronounced Mr. Butler dead."

Based in Port Arthur, Texas, UGK — Pimp C and Bun B — formed in the late 1980s and released their first album, Too Hard To Swallow, in 1992. While the group long enjoyed a strong underground following, Pimp C was perhaps best known in recent years for the "Free Pimp C" campaign launched by Bun B. Butler was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2002 for failure to comply with probation restrictions following a conviction for aggravated assault, but was released late in 2005..

In the wake of Pimp's imprisonment, Bun B. brought greater fame to the group as scores of hip-hop fans donned "Free Pimp C" T-shirts at shows and shouted the refrain in call-and-respond chants led by Bun B.

The buzz helped the group's comeback LP, UGK: Underground Kingz, debut at #1 on the Billboard albums charts upon its release in August. The album spawned the hit single "International Players Anthem" the video of which featured an all-star cast including Outkast, Three 6 Mafia and others.

Early this year, UGK was voted the #10 Greatest Hip-Hop Group of All Time in an MTV News feature.

UGK entered the mainstream in 1999 after collaborating with Jay-Z on the single "Big Pimpin' " from the Brooklyn rapper's Vol 3: Life and Times of S. Carter. Pimp C said the song, UGK's most mainstream track, was a collaboration he wasn't entirely fond of at first, as he felt the track was too soft for his group's image.

MTV News visited the rapper in prison and spoke with him regarding his tribulations while being incarcerated. Upon his release from prison, Pimp C became an outspoken critic of hip-hop's glamorization of jail.

"It's not a party. It's not fun," Pimp said. "Jail affected my whole family. My family got locked up. My group got locked up. I lost when I went to prison. That's something to be ashamed of, and that's not a badge of honor. My youngest son was 8 years old when I went in. I came back and he's a teenager. I can't get them years back."
