The Bad Seed – “Intelligently Ignant” (Review)

 

The BAD SEED - INTELLIGENTLY IGNANT – production by Kleph Dollaz, VES, Golden Eye, Will Tell and DP , as well as features from Talib Kweli, MIMS, Nature, Kool G Rap, PH (aka Pumpkinhead)and Touch

Bad Seed sets it off right with Brown Water. He comes out the gate immediately telling his story, honest, brutal, emotional, nothing glorified. Right away we find out what he means by “6th Man Entertainment”. He addresses his former record deal with Warner Brothers, his underground status, fair weather friends and burnt bridges. This is refreshing, because for once an MCee is not bragging on how dope his rhymes are, how fly his girls are, how much money and jewelry he has and how he buss his guns all day. Instead, Seed is doing what you supposed to do in Hip Hop – be honest, be passionate and most importantly – tell your story.

When Crooked, Joel,Joey, and Royce hit the stage the crowd lost it as they brought out lyrical heavyweights Lloyd Banks and Pharoahe Monch throughout the set. A good night for hip hop indeed.

Sean Price Reviews Black Swan

If you thought Sean Price Grocery Shopping was hilarious (google it), here’s the next stop on his tour of all professions:

Sean P reviewed the movie “Black Swan” for Carpetbagger – New York Times’ Blog. He showed us his high standards when it comes to films, when “He gave it his version of the thumbs-up: ‘I didn’t fall asleep.'”

According to MELENA RYZIK over at Carpetbagger, he “also liked the dream sequences – “that was my favorite part, trying to figure out what’s real and what’s not,” he said – and the “girl-on-girl action.” (more…)
