Dope! One of the most influential and most skilled MC's of all time. Microphone Fiend By Oronde Kairi - Carlos Newsome - Google+
Carlos Newsome's insight:
William Michael Griffin Jr. , better known as Rakim is widely regarded as one of the most influential and skilled MCs of all time. Rakim's rapping set a blueprint for future rappers and helped secure East Coast hip hop's reputation for innovative lyricism during the 90's.
Before his first album in 1986, there were only simple, singular rhymes. Rakim broadened and changed the entire rhyme scheme by creating intricate rhymes and word-play within each line. At the time this was a huge innovation , which paved the way for future rappers to develop their own complex styles.
Picture the world through the eyes of the jerk. The line of people in the post office is a mass of unimportant fools; it’s a felt injustice that you must wait while they bumble with their requests. The flight attendant is not a potentially interesting person with her own cares and struggles but instead the most available face of a corporation that stupidly insists you shut your phone. Custodians and secretaries are lazy complainers who rightly get the scut work. The person who disagrees with you at the staff meeting is an idiot to be shot down. Entering a subway is an exercise in nudging past the dumb schmoes.
The psychedelic English rock band The Zombies may have closed out last night’s Mad Men, but style-wise, episode two was far from experimental, opting instead for the show’s usual emphasis on period tailoring—both ill-fitting and not—pocket squares, cufflinks, and overcoats. Though we did get to see one hideous pea-green sweater (thanks, Stan).

Too many people simply coast through life one day at a time while looking forward to the next best event. The thing is, you are robbing yourself of the present moment. Each day has immense potential, but that is something people tend to forget about. Make the most out of all of your days instead of looking forward to the next best one.

The luxury brand has officially confirmed that the LF-LC concept will enter into production in 2016. Intended to be a slot above the RC as a niche-selling flagship, the production LF-LC will retain at least 90 percent of the concept's sleek styling.
Technical details for the range-topping 2+2 coupe aren't available, but rumors have suggested it will ride on a shortened version of the LS sedan's rear-wheel-drive architecture.
Speculative reports have suggested that anything from the RC F's naturally-aspirated V8 to hybridized V6 or V8 engines could make their way under the hood.
The LF-LC will be part of a Lexus growth plan that calls for a new model every year until 2020.
Released on the 1994 album Resurrection, and considered to be one of the top Hip-Hop tracks of all time, "I Used To Love H.E.R." samples "The Changing World" by George Benson. The song uses an extended metaphor, by having a young woman embody Hip-Hop music. The acronym "H.E.R" means "Hearing every rhyme", therefore stating "I Used to Love Hearing Every Rhyme and also HipHop in its Essence is Real.
In the song, Common makes an analogy comparing the degradation of a woman with the deterioration of hip hop music after its commercial success forced it into the mainstream. The song speaks on the direction that hip hop music was taking during the late 1980s and early 1990s. It specifically refers to the fall of Conscious and Afrocentric rap; as well as the rising popularity of West Coast hip hop and G-funk.
There was one verse in particular that caught the attention of prominent Hip-Hop artist Ice Cube, and he interpreted it as a diss against the West Coast.
"Now periodically I would see
Ol' girl at the clubs, and at the house parties She didn't have a body, but she started gettin' thick quick Did a couple of videos and became Afrocentric Out goes the weave, in goes the braids beads medallions She was on that tip about stoppin' the violence About my people she was teachin' me By not preaching to me, but speaking to me In a method that was leisurely So easily I approach She dug my rap That's how we got close But then she broke to the West Coast, and that was cool Cause around the same time, I went away to school And I'm a man of expanding, so why should I stand in her way She probably get her money in L.A And she did stud, she got big pub but what was foul She said that the pro-black, was going out of style She said, Afrocentricity, was of the past So she got into R&B hip-house bass and jazz Now black music is black music and it's all good I wasn't salty, she was with the boys in the hood Cause that was good for her, she was becoming well rounded I thought it was dope how she was on that freestyle shit Just having fun, not worried about anyone And you could tell by how her titties hung"
This criticism ignited a feud with Ice Cube, which helped fuel the growing animosity between West and East Coast rappers, despite the fact that Common hailed from the Mid-West.
Ice Cube with the help of West Side Connection answered with "Westside Slaughterhouse". But suprisingly,Common responded with "Bitch in Yoo", which suprised and caught the attention of most Hip-Hop heads, since Common was never considered a "Battle Rapper. This counteraction instantly gave the Mid-Westerner street credibility.
"The beef shocked fans and Common’s lash out at the untouchable Cube helped him gain credibility as a force to be reckoned with. “People started respecting his grind a little bit more because he had heart enough to dis a boss!” remembers West Coast hip-hop staple DJ Quik. “Then you saw Common’s real side,” adds Bonsu Thompson, longtime journalist. “You saw the origins of Common like ‘nah I really do this battle thing."
Horology, the science of measuring time and often referred to as the science of clock making, uses dedicated and precise tools and measurements when constructing the components of a clock. If a horologist were to only marginally err, even as much as being off a fraction of a centimeter, the entire timepiece would not function properly. Because of this incredible learning curve in custom geared clocks, we're going to use a pre-constructed gear box, and incorporate it into a unique clock of your own design. Prefabricated gearboxes and hands can typically be found at any crafts store.
The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library is relaunching its popular @JFKsaid Twitter account on Tuesday to connect Kennedy’s words to current events on Twitter. The account, which has 33,300 followers, had previously been used to live-tweet Kennedy's presidency, but ended on Nov. 22, the date of his assassination.
According to research by University of Chicago Booth School of Business Professor Matthew Gentzkow, assumptions about journalism are based on three false premises
In his new paper, "Trading Dollars for Dollars: The Price of Attention Online and Offline," which was published in the May issue of the American Economic Review, Gentzkow notes that the first fallacy is that online advertising revenues are naturally lower than print revenues, so traditional media must adopt a less profitable business model that cannot support paying real reporters
The second is that the web has made the advertising market more competitive, which has driven down rates and, in turn, revenues. The third misconception is that the Internet is responsible for the demise of the newspaper industry.
Online ad rates are typically discussed in terms of "number of unique monthly visitors" the ad receives, while circulation numbers determine newspaper rates. Several different studies already have shown that people spend an order of magnitude more time reading than the average monthly visitor online, which makes looking at these rates as analogous incorrect By comparing the amount of time people actually see an ad, Gentzkow finds that the price of attention for similar consumers is actually higher online. In 2008, he calculates, newspapers earned $2.78 per hour of attention in print, and $3.79 per hour of attention online. By 2012, the price of attention in print had fallen to $1.57, while the price for attention online had increased to $4.24
Being on-trend doesn't mean you wear only clothes from the latest collections or that you break the bank every time you go shopping.
