Big Tom (-aka- TomBig7) put beats behind the bars from battles and makes them fit like its a real song. For this one, Cortez: “Ask For Me”, he took the best Cortez lines from MCMI WARZONE: CORTEZ vs AUTOMATIC RAY (from New Years Revolution at Radio Bushwick). He has a whole mixtape of them if you like this one, called “Beats Behind the Battles Mixtape” which you can DOWNLOAD FREE. The chorus he made for this one is hot! Cortez should really do a song with that “Ask for me” hook.

Racism is alive and well in 2011. I don’t think anyone is naive enough to believe it wasn’t, but we are so used to the veiled prejudice, the follow you around the store, or the behind the scenes defunding of schools in poor black neighborhoods type, that we may have forgotten – just for a brief moment – about the plain and blatant “black Â people can’t come into our neighborhood or live on our block” brand of hatred, complete with threats and racial slurs yelled from the front lawn.
Well,Â GrindTimeNow CEO, “Drect“, co-founder of “The World’s Largest Hip Hop Battle League” has experienced just that. He leased a house in an upscale exclusive gated community, “Royal Oaks” in Houston Texas. What I guess he didn’t know was those gates were designed to keep him – and any of his black friends – OUT! First, security was instructed not to let in any African-American guests past the gate into the sub-division. Besides that, a group of people banged on his garage door yelling racial slurs and challenging Drect’s uncle to come outside, that they “got something for you” for moving into “their” neighborhood.
The House Drect leases in the Royal Oaks section of Houston Texas.
I don’t know what I find surprising, that the racist neighbors were so brazen with it, that the security guard admitted that he had been given written instructions not to allow Drect to have any guests in his own house, or that Fox News even covered this story.
