I am talking about the golden days when Jeezy was the proper role model for mental health, and 50 Cent was the new Nirvana?
Well, both these songs will take you back the the golden-era of crack music.
Well, The Jeezy song is about getting married or something and guests Andre, and Jay. But it’s still cool to have a powerful new Jeezy cut. This is kinda like International Players Anthem 2012. TM03 December 20th.
And Fif. Love you and thank you for not making a soft song. A wise man once said, ‘you can lose a lot of money chasing women. But you will never lose women chasing money’.
“Whats drugs my dealer?, asks Kanye on the breakout banger “Nwords in Paris”. Hopefully, the newly free T.I. no longer asks this question when looking for crystal meth. T.I. still can rap well, and even sounds masculine when rapping in french.

I wrote an article on Screaming Urge in this week’s The Other Paper. Screaming Urge were a pioneering punk band from here in Columbus that had their last performance on Saturday. The band had a lot of interesting things to say, so I figured I would post the interview with Columbus legends on Donewaiting.
The three above songs are off a cd Screaming Urge just released called Gory Years. Gory Years has remastered versions of Screaming Urge’s two albums, and their coveted 45. Classic material recorded from 79-81. I believe you can obtain a copy of this cd by contacting Screaming Urge’s Facebook.
I interviewed Michael Ravage (MRav), and Myke Rock (MRock) for the Other Paper story. Dave Manic, who also played in Great Plains, was not there for the interview because he lives in Erie, Pa. Dave Manic did play the reunion show. (Shirtless but without a half-beard). Danielle Kline who took the photo for the Other Paper story also asks a few questions.
W: What was Columbus, OH like in 1978?
Michael Ravage: We couldn’t get into any clubs. They wanted bands like McGuffey Lane. Cover bands. There was no punk. There was us, The Blades, (two bands whose names I couldn’t make out.hopefully someone post the bands names in comments)
W: How did you get into punk?
MRav: I was listening to a lot of Iggy Pop so that’s how I got into it and then went from there to the Sex Pistols.
W: Where was your first show?
MRav: Believe it or not it was at the Campus Methodist Center. I invented a thing called the ‘Nowhere shows’ they were called “Nowhere Fests,” we couldn’t find any place to play. I rented out the hall and we called it “Nowhere ’78” we brought the four punk bands together to play and that was our first show.
DJ Premier spoke with MTV this week about Jay-z’s new book Decoded.
The Gangstarr legend obviously produced many Jay-z classics like “So Ghetto”, “One In A Million”, “Friend or Foe” and “D’evils” so he has some insight on Jay.
Be sure to check for DJ Premier Presents- Year Round Records “Get Used To Us” which will be released on 12-7-2010.
