Merry Christmas From the Weightless Crew

Earlier this week, producer Latimore Platz was reminded that he never sampled any of Smokey Robinson’s classic Chirstmas songs.
Once brought to his attention, this oversight was thankfully short lived.

Enjoy Latimore’s remix of ‘Deck the Halls’ by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.

Also, stay tuned for Latimore’s music video debut this Tuesday, December 28th.

Critically acclaimed mc/producer and Soul Position frontman Blueprint, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore solo release Adventures in Counter-Culture. Experimenting with synths, keyboards, and drum machines, Adventures in Counter-Culture touches on Blueprint’s cynicism with the world, his disdain for pop culture, the state of politics and an apathetic, uninspired society. The album encompasses every facet of music Blueprint knows. It blurs genre lines and connects his hip hop pedigree with his early days in the church choir, to the R&B bands he was a part of in high school, to his new found interest in rock and electronic music.

After a five year musical journey, Blueprint has emerged with his greatest effort to date. A culmination of self discovery and societal critique, Adventures in Counter-Culture is just that. The adventure begins March 1st, 2011.

Thug Life…Is It Everything Its Advertised To Be?

From what I can tell being a thug just isn’t what it used to be. It seems that its harder on a thug more than any other time in history.

I mean, what if your life consisted of nothing but shootouts and fights on a daily basis?  For most people having to deal with an overbearing boss is enough to make you wanna figure-four leg-lock someone.  Imagine the kinda mental stress you must go through everyday if you wake up like, “well this could be my last day here on earth, but fuck it let it do what it do.”  I dunno if that’s a lifestyle I’m equipped to deal with.  Imagine being in and outta jail sometimes for days, other times months, or even years.   But, this is your whole lifestyle we’re talking about, not just a one time thing when you were 20 years old.

One thing I don’t think most people realize about most thugs is that they’re mostly broke.  Now, you may be saying to yourself “I thought they sold drugs?” That’s a common misconception about thugs.  Most drug dealers are not thugs, and most thugs are not drug dealers.  There’s a difference.  This is why they’re always trying to rob people–because they’re broke.  Most thugs go to jail for assault and robbery.
