Okay, first of all, you don't fuck with MC Hammer, you know and I know we all used to dance, and know all the words to his hits so respect due. But this has to be the greatest and most annoying song i've ever heard. If soulja boy came out with this today with the exact lyrics and dance, it would be a hit i know it. You decide for yourself. Peep below...

damn, ya'll i just recieved some tragic news...
Sources report that early Thursday morning rapper Magoo, real name Melvin Barcliff, was found dead in a hotel room in Portsmouth, Va. Hotel owners said that they checked in "Magoo" two days ago and hadn't heard anything from the resident since the check-in. The cause of death has not been determined. Surrounding the rapper was an MP3 player and a notebook. Writing within the tablet, showed the derangement of a musician, disillusioned by the industry that had "chewed him up and spit him out". Police were called because a hospital associate stumbled upon an unconscious man inside the room. The rapper was believed to be visiting Virginia for a recording session, though he had not had a record out in quite some time. More details to follow.
More news as it comes...

Finally, the long awaited release from the big homie Just Plain Ant, I can't help but cosign this release from my dude. He's definitely taken his production to the next level maintaining a soulfulness, and cohesiveness lacking much in hip hop today. So support RVA Hip Hop!!!!
Oh, and by the way, This is an album, NOT a mixtape, twerps!!!

What up family, its been a minute since you've heard from me, life has a funny way of treating you sometimes. In the course of a month and a half i've moved out of an apartment into a townhouse and out again only to be staying with in laws while my wife is about to have my first seed. The stress can be overwhelming but thank God for good friends, good beats and good trees. On the music front I've been deep in my own world prepping a few solo and collab releases with my boy JustPlainAnt and the anxiety is building. In addition to being featured on his new album "Dig Deep" which i advise all readers to check out! I've been cultivating a style I like to call "Rugged Tranquility" Its hard to explain, you'll just have to hear it when i finally get off my ass and drop something. The anticipation is building but timing is everything so til then, keep ya ears open, and thanks for the patience. peacers.
