I was totally on board with that video of the black kids from Ferguson talking about racism, until the advertisement at the end.

Buy our T-shirt to show that you’re not racist! $5 from your each purchase will go to anti-racist charities, but we won’t say which ones!

BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.

So last night, Your Old Droog had his first show in NYC, and there was a lot of people hating on Twitter because yes, it was just some white dude who sounded like Nas and not Nas himself.

If you seriously went to this show thinking you were going to see Nas, after ALL the evidence showed that he wasn’t, then you’re just an idiot. And to those calling him a biter, just stop. Yes, dude has a voice that sounds like Nas, but that’s where the comparisons end. His rhyme style is totally different from how Nas spits. Its not like Iggy Azalea who is from another fucking country and is putting on an obviously fake black accent, it sounds like his natural voice.

Bottom line: Your Old Droog is dope, and I’m looking forward to hearing more from the dude.

I’m kind of surprised my Tumblr post about my ringtone has gotten so many likes and reblogs. I had no idea people were so nostalgic for the first Lupin III TV series.

Reblog if you have made a friend online that you would love to hang with, but they live far away.

I’ve made quite a few in my time… though I’m not sure if they feel the same way.

Sometimes, nostalgia is a cage.

Probably the simplest yet most real statement I’ve heard in quite some time.

This has been my ringtone for the last couple of months.

Why?

It’s Lupin, I ain’t gotta explain shit.

Concerts I’m attending (or at least hoping to attend) in the next few months

  • Knocturnal 2nd Anniversary: Quelle Chris, Open Mike Eagle, Serengeti, and Dillon, at Snug Harbor (Charlotte), September 8th
  • Funk Fest Day 1: Outkast, B.O.B., Doug E. Fresh, Morris Day & The Time, and more, at Metrolina Expo Fairgrounds (Charlotte), Sept 12th
  • Big K.R.I.T. at Amos Southsend (Charlotte), October 2nd
  • Brother Ali at Cat’s Cradle - Back Room (Carrboro), Oct 24th
  • CunningLyngusits and J-Live at Cat’s Cradle - Back Room (Carrboro), November 7th

Only tickets bought so far is Funk Fest. I wanted to attend the second day of Funk Fest too, but I didn’t have the cash at the time. Sucks, cause I’ll be missing The Roots, Ice Cube, and War… and LL Cool J, but I don’t care bout him.
