Columbus rapper Copywrite got a pretty good review in XXL Magazine for his upcoming album, the Life and Times of Pete Nelson.

You have to give to Pete here. He is getting all these respected rappers on his project on the strength that he can rap.
The song is basically each rappers coming age story.
Copywrite’s album The Life and TImes of Peter Nelson in stores November 16th.

MP3:Copywrite feat Crooked I-Crooked Cop

MP3:Copywrite feat Crooked I-Crooked Cop

Copywrite teams up with Slaugherhouse’s Crooked I. Columbus rapping fucking with  the rapper Suge Knight cosigned after Pac passed? Yessir

This song is of Copywrite’s upcoming album the Life and Times of Peter Nelson which will be released November 16, 2010.

In addition to Crooked I, Copy’s new album features appearaces by Sean Price, RJD2, Illmind, Khrysis, MHZ, MF Grimm, Motion Man, Camu Tao and Dilated Peoples.

Pete is my friend, so I’ve heard the new album. It bangs and but also shows the side of Copywrite people loved on RJD2’s June. The Life and Times of Pete Nelson is has Pete reflecting on the deaths of his Mom, Dad, Camu  Przm, his grandfather,  as well as Kurt Cobain, Biggie Smalls. But besides the introspective stuff, Pete still gives you the humor, and raw lyricism that one enjoys about a Copywrite release.

Dead Prez in Columbus @ Skullys October 22nd

YouTube Preview Image

It’s Still Bigger than Hip Hop. Dead Prez is playing Columbus with Copywrite and the 3rd on this bill with a few others.

While “It’s Bigger than Hip Hop” is the hit. Really, I’m using this show to show my favorite video in the history of rap, “Hell Yeah”. I posted it above. While you might not like the fact that its white people being robbed, you need to get past that and just enjoy the fact that it’s people being robbed. Why get defensive about race?

Look how much fun Dead Prez is having robbing tourists, pizza men, stores and their jobs.  Look how attractive Dead Prez are when robbing white people, pizza men, stores and their jobs.

This video is especially awesome because it shows vegans aren’t pussies. And also has a Rick Ross cameo near the end.(hint he is wearing a mask)

But yeah, Dead Prez, the one group that figured out that revolutionaries are supposed to look cool are performing in Columbus.

Anyway, Dead Prez, Copywrite and the 3rd  + more at Skullys October 22nd.

Video: Copywrite Repeatedly Punches Cage in The Head During L.A. Fight

YouTube Preview Image

Columbus rapper Copywrite videotaped punching Shia LaBeouf’s bff Cage next to a car. This video also has Copy carrying on a phone conversation after the fight with the girl in the video. The conversation is funny bc Copywrite is acting like he wasn’t involved and getting jokes in.

During the actual squabble it looks like Cage is trying to pull something out the trunk and Copy is pounding on his head. Doods used to be friends and make music together. And obviously aren’t and don’t anymore.

MP3:Copywrite Ft/Middle Distance Runner-Forever and A Day(Produced By RJD2)

Tuttle Park, Columbus Ohio

MP3:Copywrite-Forever and a Day

“On Forever and a Day” RJD2 and Copywrite work together to mourn their fellow Megahert, Camu Tao. They brought in an indie rock group, Middle Distance Runner, to add layers and sing the hook. This is the first song on Copywrite’s upcoming album the Life and Time of Pete Nelson due out in October.

Def Jux and Fat Possum are putting out Camu’s album King of Hearts August 16th

(I swear to Allah that I’m not trying to get on this computer and talk about death everyday. Not to get all Jim Carrol, but, 3 major figures in hip hop from Columbus did die. And both of Copy’s parents are deceased so…artists are gonna make art about what affects them )

Killah Priest will be releasing his new LP, The 3 Day Theory on July 6th, 2010. 14 new tracks featuring appearnces by Ill Bill, Cappadonna, Canibus, Copywrite and others.

This is obviously the song with Columbus malcontents, Copywrite and Jakki of the Mhz, on it. It’s cool cause Priest talk mystic shamen wizardy, while Copywrite and Jakki vow to be horrible people in vein with the Letter People cd we put up last week,
Well, Copy is a little reflective on this. Jakki isn’t.
