As many of you know our store was designed and built out by Jason Gregory and myself. He is also the driving force behind all things MAKR. Here is a glimpse of what's to come.

Kobe, Tell Me How His Ass Taste. I Bet It's Better Than His Rappin'.

I might catch some heat for this one but whatever. Shaqs on some Bo Jackson shit with his entire rap career (Refer to A Tribe Called Quest to understand that one). Much less his poor attempt at a rhyme scheme the other night. When did it become ok to use the same word twice, no wait seven times to end a line. And I'm not talking about the hook either. It only leads me to wonder "How the hell did he....
A. Get a record deal in the first place &
B. Put out enough records to get a greatest hits record."

Shaq, you should stick to fake coppin' instead of fake rappin'.

Post #188, Someone Break Out The Champagne.

First and foremost, this marks the 188th post on this blog!
Secondly, thanks to Roctakon. Without him you wouldn't get to hear this little joint (I totally bit his post from the Labs blog. Yes, it's that good.). If you're ever in need of a good laugh and have a stupid amount of time on your hands, hit up the Scratch Live forum and look up some old post by Roctakon. Shits pure comedy. Then he got banned (twice).
Third, well I don't have a third. Just enjoy the Elvis Costello mash-up, mix, remix, rub or whatever you call it these days.

To Catch A Thief.

Spoke with Ronnie B. (The Shadow Conspiracy & Subrosa) today. Apparently some person or persons decided to break into his warehouse and steel about 20, yes 20 Subrosa bikes. Be on the look-out for anyone who suddenly has a grip of brand new box fresh bikes for sale. Shit's suspect. Any info would be helpful.


Alas! The In4mation x Casio G-Shock watches have landed, along w/ the rest of the Summer goods, which include some slick womens styles. Come by and SHAKA BRAH!

Doing It Wrong.

I'm sure there only a handful of people around who give a shit about the content of this video. I just happen to be one of them. Watch and you might learn something.

P.S. This one's so good it made two blogs.

LULZ for days.

(Taken from the TurntableLab golb) QUOTED FOR MUTHAFUCKIN TRUTH! (Cept I personally knew a lil about records when I was a git.)


While most of these kids are well out of their teens, I think this title fits because they know about as much about records as I did when I was a teenager.

Here's how you can spot them...

1- Big emphasis on playing records that Daft Punk, Armand, etc sampled in their "disco sets" (at first I was genuinely impressed with their deep knowledge of these records, than I realized there are like 10 million blogs that list and post these records).

2 - Instead of saying they "really love" a dj or "the dj killed it" they say things like "that guy really know his shit." This implies that the Teenage DJ's blog base of music knowledge is somehow comparable to someone's who shaped the game like a Cosmo Vitelli.

3 - Talking to them about music makes your stomach cringe in the same way as Estelle's lyrics on American Boy.

4 - They never stop trying to get gigs or setting up photo op's (squeaky wheel theory).

5 - They've heard of everything except Moodymann & Second Cousins...

To be honest this isn't some hater shit, just an observation. I prefer this generation to the "Too Cool DJs" of my generation who just sit around and complain about how they have to "go to work" making $500 an hour.

One Love & Strictly Positive Vibes To The Mighty DJ Nation....

Big up Jemz.

You Can Thank Austin For This One. Well, You Should Thank Wale, Catchdubs & 10 Deep Too.

This post was lifted entirely from the "Everybody's Somebodys Fool" blog. It's a new thing some friends and I are working on. I got an email from Austin asking for someone to post this mix. I was under the impression that anyone who checks this blog on the regular would already have this and it wouldn't be new to anyone. But he thinks different. So in case you were late to the party, here you go.

Up and coming MC Wale from DC just got with NYC street wear brand 10 Deep and dropped a T-Shirt (pictured above) and a mixtape (linked below). The mixtape was produced by Nick Catchdubs (He did "100 Miles And Running" mixtape with Wale that was released last summer). The mix is dope and the T-Shirt is, well, a T-Shirt. $40 bucks is a little steep for me. The T does come with a hard copy of the mixtape but $40 bucks? It's your money, do what you like.

Bonus beat left off the mixtape "The Crazy".
