ErickArcElliot – Family Matters

25 Nov

Erick (of the loveinus family)’s album Almost Remembered, dropping January 2011. Not only a fresh emcee, Erick’s at the helm of everything he does creatively. From audio production to song writing to graphic design, this is a man who know’s exactly what he’s going to do in the next few years. Big fucking things coming out of this Brooklyn native.

Do Your Homework.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing this kid since I was still a snotnosed virgin. He’s a true artist. If you fucks with Illustrate, I fucks with you, end of story. Hit the jump for his latest release, look for big things in the happening in 2011 from one of Long Island’s most respected ex-patriots.

Premium OldHead Of The Week: The Many Faces Of Ice T’s Past Lives & Why He Is The Way He Is.

26 Sep

This is Ice T, the gangster rapper.


This is from Ice T’s first life, as a breakdancer & not a very good one at that. Pay close attention to the lack of backspins and the really expensive dance studio as well as the flailing arms and the cut off shirt that reads Ice T. How gangster is that?

Next, Comes Ice T, following his first resurrection where he came back to life as a gangster rapper, so gangster that he claimed that he was the ORIGINAL gangster. Notice how now he even says he WON’T dance? WHY WON’T YOU DANCE FOR US, ICE?

Next, comes Ice T as a punk, not a very good one at that. This MUST have been Henry Rollins’ Fault. I’m almost sure of it.

However many times he switched up his story, THIS is where Ice T starts really contradicting himself. On the soundtrack for New Jack City, the title track by Ice T is called “New Jack Hustler,” the lyrics depicting him being a gangster like he hadn’t played a narc in the movie with the same name! This guy is COMPLEX.

Next comes the final transformation, i give you Special Victims Unit Detective Ice T, play on playa.


Very Not Gangster.

Very Not Gangster.

So what have we learned here today? I’d say that usually the people that need to say how hard they are, really aren’t that tough. I mean sure there are a few rappers that maybe sold a few grams, a few hand to hands but i doubt any of them really pushed weight with the exception of a few emcees that have the court cases to back up their claims.

But even then if we the viewers can justify someone as legitimately gangster because they’ve been pinched then we’re ALL missing the point. It’s just a facade. Ice T acting like a cop is the SAME as Ice T acting like a dancer or a gangster or a pimp and a punk! At the end of the day Ice T is an actor, a life long actor, fitting rolls and molds he needed to play in order to pay the bills.
