Van Morrison - Astral Weeks


When Van Morrison's second solo album, Astral Weeks, hit shelves in 1968, it was a commercial failure (Not until 2001 did it achieve Gold status). But in the following decades, the mystical-themed album has become one of Morrison's most beloved, influencing everyone from Bruce Springsteen to U2. It ranks #19 on The Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

Words From...


My dude Saint put me onto a blog that he started called "words from". It features an eclectic mix of people, some of which you may recognize, that he invited to share their words. Each 'words from' post includes a picture of the person and couple paragraphs of whatever they wanted to share. Here is Saint's words from so you get the idea.

Fader Magazine Kanye West Interview

Kanye is one of the few artists that produces quality and relevant music every time they drop. This new album has been the topic of much controversy within my crew. I have the utmost respect for Kanye because he's not scared to take risks, he represents true artistry and his image and marketing are always cutting edge. I think the ideas for 808's and Heartbreak are brilliant. I admire his commitment to this movement and it will be interesting to watch him follow through on the entire process.

Drake & Lykke Li - Little Bit

This is a record off of So Far Gone, the new mixtape which I am in Atlanta finishing right now. I chose to leak this song so that people can get a vibe for the tape. I am a true fan of this artist and I am looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks.

ZS. Enjoy.

Drake in the New York Times: Dedication 3 Review

" Of all the Young Money comers, the most promising is Drake, known best for his role as Jimmy Brooks on the television show “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” On “Stuntin’,” over the gurgling beat from David Banner’s “Get Like Me,” he’s limber and funny, clearly a student of his mentor.

And Wayne, rapping second, sounds as if he feels a bit of pressure: “I went from penny-pinching to private planes/Never sat on any benches, I got in games/Starter Carter ball harder.” Phew — still got it."

Saturday Enjoyment


Remember back in the days when there was that group of sisters that went to some high school like 14 mins away from where you live. Those legendary sisters that you made you wonder what kind of guy gains admittance into that family...I think I found them. One of them actually works at a studio I record at and wont talk to me ever since I sent her a floral arrangement from Vera Wang months ago, but least she knows I have good taste. Enjoy the Morton Sisters...
