Sailor Pick | Killin Them All

Yeah, whaddup. London, I'm coming for you.

Onto the real shit, though.
The internet was blowing up last night in the aftermath of OFWGKTM [odd future wolf gang kill them all] debut on Jimmy Fallon.
Tyler The Creator and Hodgy Beats seriously killed in. Supreme hat, high socks and all.

But before all of that Tyler put out one of the best videos I've seen this year.

As uncomfortable it made me, ala Black Swan, it was still genius.
Check it out.

Shit is realer than a motherfucker*

*please realize that's just a saying and him hanging himself is not real. do not do it, kids

Now check out the ground breaking performance of Odd Future with The Roots backing them up here because iframe embedded codes FUCK UP MY LIFE RIGHT NOW.

ok, I'm out.
Love you guys, furrel

Sailor Pick | Magnetic Man

It's late in the day. And it's cold. So I'm coming in to give you something to listen to.
Shhhhhh. Don't say a word. Momma will take good care of you.


A collab effort from Dubsteps biggest Djs [Benga, Skream, and Artwork] released their debut album October 2010.
Shit went under the radar here in America as it usually does, then the heads that knew about it, hated it based on the fact that it was released on a major label and saw the DJs 'selling out'.

Fucking ridiculous.
Album is HUGE and they now have a spot playing at Coachella 2011.

Enjoy this track they did ft handsome John Legend.

Then head here to check out Skream's remix

Or hit up Breakage's take on the track

Either way. Shit is dope. Don't even play.

fuck the cold, too, btw.
