Third "Paid Dues" Hip Hop Festival Line-up Announced

Adam Schleichkorn Wednesday, January 23, 2008
The following article is from hiphopdx.com...

After last year's highly successful second annual Paid Dues festival, rapper and promoter of the festival MURS, in association with Guerilla Union (Rock the Bells, Cypress Hill Smoke Out) have announced its return.

Paid Dues showcases exclusively independent hip hop artists, as evinced by their lineup. Performing at the festival will be: Sage Francis, Little Brother, Jedi Mind Tricks, Dilated Peoples, Living Legends, Hieroglyphics, Visionaries, Boot Camp Clik with Black Moon, Kool Keith, P.O.S., A-Team, Mac Lethal, Fatlip & Omni, Yak Ballz, B. Dolan and Isaiah. MURS will be hosting the event, and there will be a suprise guest appearance.

“What we’re trying to do with Paid Dues as we go into our third year is: Number one is focus. Being that it's a festival birthed on the west coast we wanted to tailor the bill to appeal a little more to the region so we brought on local staples such as the A-team, Omni and Fatlip. To knock it out of the park we added the three major west coast crews Living Legends, Hieroglyphics and the Visionaries,” stated Murs.

“The second thing we are doing is expanding by grabbing more artists outside of the traditional indie hop family (ie Def Jux, Rhymesayers, Living Legends) so we approached Dilated Peoples and Little Brother. We also wanted to show some love to the decorated veterans of the independent hiphop scene so we reached out to Boot Camp Clik and Kool Keith. Third and most importantly we wanted to give back to the awesome fans who've supported us over the past two years to make the is the biggest and best Paid Dues yet. My partner Chang says third year is always the greatest and it seems to be like he's going to be right, again.”

"We are very proud to have partnered with Murs to build a true platform for independent hip-hop artists and their communities. The third annual episode combines the best and brightest artists from a myriad of labels, most of whom have new music or projects that can take advantage of our Paid Dues promotional platform,” added Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union. “The Living Legends, Boot Camp Clik, Hieroglyphics and Murs all have special projects they will be showcasing for 2008. Sage Francis is working on his Strange and Famous label initiatives and I can't wait to see Kool Keith and Yak Ballz! We are especially excited that SanDisk has partnered with Paid Dues to continue their efforts to educate and empower conscious music fans by encouraging our DIY audience to capture, share and distribute content by ‘Waking Up Your Phone.’ It is a very strategic partnership that will help shape the distribution of content that all these artists are capable of producing and sharing with their communities via mobile, on-line and social networking. As always, I'm sure Murs has a couple surprises up his sleeve. Murs for President in 2008. I think he could give the current candidates a run for their money--lyrically speaking at least."

Shabooty.com

So for those of you who don't already know, I run the Youtube channels for Yak Ballz (youtube.com/YakBallzTV) and the Killers of Comedy(youtube.com/killersofcomedy). So I was doing my daily Google searches, and I saw Yak interviewed by shabooty.com. After reading the interview, I noticed that he interviewed the majority of the guys from the Killers, so I looked into his site, and Shabooty apparently stands for "Stern", "Hip-Hop", and "Booty". What a freakin magical combination! Those are pretty much my 3 reasons for waking up everyday, so I had to show his some respect. I knew the name sounded familiar, and it turns out that he was already subscribed to Hidden Track as well. Long story short, we're trading links with his site, but this isn't one of those fake links, we actually truly recommend that you go check his stuff out! Besides Yak and the Killers, he has a ton of QUALITY interviews up there, including Greg Fitzsimmons, Cage, El-P, and Daryl Palumbo. He takes a page out of Howard's book, and asks non-generic questions, that I'm sure some of these dudes were sweating when trying to answer! Again, check it out at shabooty.com

R.I.P. Heath Ledger

Dan Taft

I used to refer to him as Heech Leather; at first I thought he wasn’t a very good actor who appeared in a bunch of meaningless and somewhat crappy movies. However, in the later part of his career he showed that he actually was a good actor. As much as the homophobes were scared to see the movie because it might bring out their secretly gay side, “Brokeback Mountain” was a pretty good movie in which he definitely stole the show. And it was important. Ledger also just wrapped production on the new Batman movie which also may show how talented he was.
Aside from that, I don’t really know anything about the guy. He was probably a good guy; it seems like he may have died from some drug related issue, which is a shame. I do want to point out one thing, though, which will probably be read as controversial. Any time someone dies at such a young age it is certainly tragic; however, the fact that his death gets the amount of press that it does in contrast to the minimal press that a soldier’s death gets says something about us as people. Even more so, look how little attention the deaths of the Iraqi civilians gets. On 9/11, several thousand innocent people died, which was certainly tragic. Since the beginning of the Iraq war, tens of thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands of innocent people have died, but because they aren’t American, or because they aren’t a celebrity, people here don’t seem to give a shit. In Darfur people are being slaughtered and you never hear about it. I’m just sayin…

The G-Men Cometh

Dan Taft Tuesday, January 22, 2008


My latest predictions about the New York Giants going on to defeat the Packers and advance to the Superbowl have come to fruition. Simply put, I was right. Thus, I shall make yet another prediction. The New England Patriots have this storybook perfect season thing going on- well guess what; the best, and most ironic, ending to that story would be for them to lose it all at the last moment to an “unworthy” opponent. And it’s going to happen. Mark my words- you heard it here first San Diego- the Giants will win the Superbowl.

After my newest prediction comes to pass, I shall heretoforth be known as the great wise one, “Danimodous.” Keep the diamond-couches coming Garcon!

Nostradamus Predicted the Giants would Win the Super Bowl in 2008

Dan Taft Sunday, January 20, 2008

You heard it here first- not only will the New York Giants defeat the Green Bay Packers this weekend at Lambo, they will go on to defeat the New England Patriots, thereby spoiling their almost perfect season.

In related news, the New York Knicks have won three games in a row, and I predict they will win their fourth game in a row tonight against the Washington Wizards. It is clear now that all the Knicks hate Stephon Marbury and play much better when he is wearing a funny little boot. So long Steph- I think it is safe to say he has played his last game as a Knick. The Knickerbockers will finish this season with a record around 34-48, and will end up with the fourth pick in the draft, selecting Derrick Rose and becoming an elite team in the Eastern Conference (not much of a feat) once again.

Isn’t it amazing how nice breasts are?

Dan Taft

I was just watching the preview for that Godzilla movie where he destroys New York City, and all of these preppy yuppy white assholes are talking into the camera about what an awesome time they’re going to have travelling to Japan on their parents’ dime, when I noticed a sexy lady swaying side to side to some song and I thought: “those breasts almost make this movie look interesting.”
Anyhoo, that video on myspace with the monkey pissing into his own mouth is great!

Bo Knows

I usually only post my own videos, or videos that I'm promoting, but I saw these "Bo Knows" commercials, and they just brought me back! I love how in the first one, the biggest stars from each sport at the time made cameos. A commercial like this nowadays would be huge!!!
