A preview of the forthcoming album Ultraviolet from one of Seattle's finest, Sadistik. I have Blue Sky Black Death to thank for turning me onto this 'alternative rapper' as they handled the majority of the production on his album FFMF, dude is really dope with a dark moody flow, hit that play button and grab his latest album Flowers For My Father(on Fake Four) ASAP

It's 2014 and that means winter olympic's and the only thing that i'm concerned with is men's ice hockey. Now me being the die hard Blackhawks fan i am my eyes are on USA(Kane), Canada(Toews, Sharp & Keith), Sweeden(Hjalmarsson, Oduya & Kruger) & Slovakia(Hossa). With that being said Can, Swe & USA have been on a tare and Slovakia was destroyed in their game. Stats are as followed: USA 7 Slovakia 1, Canada 3 Norway 1, Sweden 4 Czech Republic 2. Kane and Keith both had a couple of assists but thats about it as far as any points generated by a Blackhawk in the olympics. Below are the 2014 Blackhawk olympians(hence i could care less about Rozival or Handzus).

Today in my email I came across a new video from Washington D.C. Producer/MC , Oddisee. The video, directed by Jeremy Ian Thomas plays like a short film and skate video in one. The visuals do not include Oddisee or his home city at all. Instead the focus is on the main characters, 3 members of Long Beach CA skate crew called Hammer City. Caprice Down from Oddisee's album The Beauty In All plays as the background soundtrack of the day for Juice, E.C. & ManMan of the Hammer City skate collective.
Hammer city is a collective of skaters who all live near or in the neighborhood on 14th street in Long Beach California. The crews founder was a skater named Michael Green A.K.A Blacc Mike (ManMan's brother) was gunned down in 2005 over a case of mistaken Identity. Needless to say, 14th street is not a conducive environment for skating, drugs and gangs shadow the landscape but in the middle of it all the kids found an escape, they found refuge in a park they dubbed "Ghetto Park" which later became know as "The Michael K. Green Skate Park."
