Exams: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I got to apologize for my absence, but it's been a lil crazy with midterms, Thanksgiving break and now we a week away from exams. Crazy how fast this semester went by, and dammit if it wasn't one of the best I've ever had. Big props to the football squad at NC Central for their undefeated season and on making it to the second round of the playoffs. I, of course, was at the game last Saturday and I don't know if the refs could have dicked y'all any more than they did. Only loss of the year coming in the playoffs? Nothing wrong with that. Also, big props to my NCCU Marching Sound Machine family on getting invited back to the Honda Battle of the Bands in Atlanta for the third consecutive year... can you say "dynasty"?

Speaking of exams... isn't this just the best time of year? Not to mention the fact that a whole semester of stress is piled into two weeks, you also get to see your friends at their worst. Yeah, she did come out on the yard with her hair still wrapped, wearing Chinese beauty supply store slippers, dirty socks, sweat pants and a "Tommy Gear" jacket. And yeah, he did just pass you in the caf with arms lookin like Ashy Larry and a FUBU jersey from 6th grade (who is #05?). Ahhh... soak in the finals week atmosphere!

I got a lil heat rock for ya while you sit in the library and stare at the same first paragraph for two hours. Nas and Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry have obviously become good friends. They were together on tracks for Hi-Tek's album (Music For Life) and The Game's album (Why You Hate The Game). And again, for Hip Hop Is Dead Nas requested her appearance, along with The Game on his track "Gangstas". Let me know what you think...

Gangstas - Nas feat. The Game & Marsha Ambrosius

Didnt really care for this song so much, but I just got done listening to the Tapemasters Inc. mixtape "NaS: The N...The Resurrection of Hip Hop" and all I have to say is wow, and that is mainly due to the song "Black Republicans". L.E.S did a great job with this track to fit Jay and NaSty on this track. The symphonic sounds are amazing and I love how the beat builds during the verse INTO the hook rather than just standing in the background during the verse then diversifying during the hook. Perfect beat.

Congrats on Honda. Ive gone every year since the 2nd one and the underdog then was Prarie View and they tore it up with the B.O.X drum break, but the next two years NCCU has impressed me the most, especially the transitions between Corps style and Traditional marching (ITS THE FUTURE). Don't think Im gonna attend this year though, but yall show up everyone. And start a drum battle with somebody after the grand finale haha shit happens every year.

Top 5 drumlines in the nation will be at the Honda this year: Norfolk State, Bethune Cookman, Prarie View A&M, Virginia State and NCCU. We all know who sits atop that list though... A.X.I.S.
