Malik-16 & Brandon Carter Ruin B.O.B.’s “Nothin On You”

Just watch.

Nonsense at it’s finest is all I can say…

This is real freestyling – take note Rappers!

New Brandon Carter Title track video

Last month, I posted the first of  the 17 (Count ’em!) videos that Mr. Carter plans on releasing from his latest album, Never Give A Fuck.

Here’s the vid for the title track.

This is another one that I was supposed to be in. But it’s a good look for Brandon to do his solo thing in this and rep the Chi hard. Don’t worry, I came through in the next video, providing a little comic relief.  Stay tuned…

New Brandon Carter Album Drop – NEVER GIVE A FUCK!

Today is the day!

There may be plenty of releases, but none quite like this one.

My boy Brandon Carter returns to glory with his second LP, and yes, that’s the title!

Every last track is written, produced and arranged by Mr. Carter himself, complete with live instrumentation by frequent collaborators, The Vanguard, with some guitar strumming of his own. And of course I make a couple of appearances as well.

I might revisit this with a review and interview, but we’ll see…

In the meantime, go cop that! It’s Completely FREE and well worth you adding into your music rotation.

2 new Music Vids – Brandon Carter’s “Around The World” & Sol-Leks’ “Always Like This”

2 of my Favorite Rappers that I know!

First up…

The boy Brandon Carter Took advantage of his time in the islands and shot a video on location for one of my favorite joints from him. I was in the vid, via our time in the Grand Cayman Island yearly carnival, but alot of scenes got cut during editing.  Shout out to Brian on the camera work!! Let the video take you away for a minute while we up here above the equator deal with this Global Warming-induced iffy weather.

And second…

My boy Sol-Leks is a master at sampling. He took liberties with this song and made it his own. This is just a taste of what’s to come as he’s got 2 mixtapes dropping soon. Washington Heights’ own…He’s a problem. Shout out To Who Is Number 5? on the video! My crew, The Balance is still in full effect!

Footage from 3/30 Brandon Carter Show @ DROM

Here’s a few clips from Tuesday’s show at Drom With Brandon Carter.

We shared a stage with the beautiful ass Black Buddafly, who will no doubt show up in a future Crush Alot segment.

Oh yeah, Malik Yoba was in the building too.

But anyway, The Boy Carter did his thing and has become quite the showman…cool, calm and in control. I played Hypeman for a couple of joints and then we went into an improvised version of the peoples’ favorite,  “Subway Bus or Walking”. Special Shout out to The Vanguard, who acted as the backing band and made wonderful things come to life by adding the melodious backdrop. Make sure you’re on the look out for his new album, entitled Never Give A Fuck!. Again kiddies, YES – that is the name of the album…

Subway, Bus or Walking Tee – Get Yours!!!!

In the wake of the success of our Viral video, “Subway Bus or Walking”,

The boy Brandon Carter has taken things one step further and made it into a ringtone as well as turning the title into a T-shirt for all my Stylish Straphangers out there!

If you are a proud commuter who knows how to utilize that public transportation system in your city, save money and still somehow remain flyer than those driving in the Newest new, then Rock this whenever this season and let people know how you roll…

The truth about why Men Cheat! Courtesy of Brandon Carter

My homegirl Tyiesha from the Bank across the street came into my day gig the other day in the midst of a testosterone-filled afternoon thanks to ever-so-reliable controversy sparkers, Gee and non other than Brandon Carter.

Well….Ms. Tyiesha had a question that seemed simple enough to her, as it does to most women apparently, but is really the age old question that’s been tormenting their minds for centuries now. Her question?

Why do men cheat? If they know they’re gonna cheat, why have a girlfriend?

The answer is as simple in actuality as her question seemed in theory.

Watch here as Brandon Breaks it down for all women. For any of you men who somehow didn’t know this, I guess this is Man-Up 101 for you as well!

Let me just go on record as saying that this is a conversation that I have held a million times, I prompted this particular convo, and I would like it to be known that I do not condone nor relate to any man who cheats in a serial fashion. In other words, I don’t associate with CHEATERS on average. I don’t respect what they do, nor have I ever been. YET, it is my firm belief that almost EVERY Man WILL CHEAT if given the proper oppurtunity, and have cheated at least once in their lifetimes (if they are the kind that actually get women). I know women cheat alot as well, but our reasons are totally different…Mainly because men don’t require reason at all for their infidelites. And yes, I have cheated before.

Your thoughts?

*Zoloft Files Edition* Hot 16…Or More…LOVER OF LOVE

Day 3 ya’ll,

and how fitting that the boy Brandon Carter decides to use his run-by as a platform to try to play me on the Love-life tip and the supposed motivation behind this very project.

It goes right in line with the song that we’ll be getting into the lyrics of today.

This is one of my favorite rhymes to read written. I think it highlights the seriousness of what I’m saying where it may get lost due to my playful delivery on the track.

This is actually the sister song to track 7 on this same volume.

They go into my approach towards Love and what I invest into it.

This stands as a favorite not only because it’s therapuetic, but I think it’s half self-deprecating, Part accepting, and part not-give-a-fuck tone gives a different spin on the typical rapper introspection.

Besides that,

It’s pretty Self -explanatory.

Whereas Andre spoke on the Love Hater or Hater of Love,

This is my life as the opposite…

“Stupid Muthafuckas like me!

Fall in Love with the thought of Love,

better warn your daughters – hide their student IDs.

Cause more than likely…

I probably Court ’em – only to get Caught up in like, 4 months – watch me call ’em Wifey.

Yeah it’s sorta my thing,

Cause when it come to borderline divorces: I’m King!

And all the time I walk the line and cross it slightly,

Start talking prematurely on some yours and mine things,

that should not be discussed…

And I get gassed up cause I’m awarded Highly, in the sport of Piping!

And it’s not me to trust – But I…

Don’t usually,

Truthfully,

I’ll be honest…I promise…

Cause it’s got me disgusted!

What’s this??!!

Some Pimp,

Look to me more like a square,

Hooked to these broads like a brassieres,

– I make me Hate me – I swear!

But is it true??

Am I really that pitiful?

This is me at my most analytical.

Let’s strip dude apart:

Big kid with big heart,

been with,

been apart,

This is-n’t a smart decision

-cause this in-ci-sion’s beginning an op-er-a-tion,

that can take a lifetime – and the doc…

Is Dr. Love

And she ain’t got no patience for me,

cause I complain too much, and she got other patients to see.

So patch me up – give me my clothes back,

close that hole that you started making…

clearly I have got that anxious disease.

I’m in Love with being in Love,

and even tho it ain’t really happen to me, E-nough…

I be chasing with speed.

So here’s my co-pay,

I gots to go – Hey!

There’s a future failure waiting for me.

Making believe,

making a tree,

one day to be…

K-I-S-S, I-N-G

-with the Love of my life,

Hopefully not just my Love for tonight,

It’s no wonder why I find myself time and time again in that cycle – Love Potion # 9,

til I find her – I’m the stupid muthafucka saying I Love. I Love. I Love…”

Hope you learned something.
