Cooking With Phil - Episode 2

Phil whips up some sushi with the assistance of another Bull City Legend, Jamie Patterson. You've seen plenty of Jamie's clothes on Phonte and Pooh, as well as his Getback tees worn by the legion better known as the "Getback Army". Check out his clothing line at

Bull City Sushi - Cooking With Phil

The Rap Game - Cormega feat. Little Brother

This track is sick, and Pooh goes super hard. I swear, if you go back to The Listening and analyze Pooh's verses, he has gone from that "third guy in LB" to holding his weight in the duo with Te. I like Pooh in the first verse because he sets up Te so well, but in this verse his 16 stands on it's own. Glad to see Mega and LB back together after their track on the HOJ album.

Cooking With Phil

My man Phil Harrington has become a Facebook sensation over his "Cooking With Phil" segments and as promised, I'm posting his latest installment as he prepares the "Simple Sweet Potato Pie" for the folks at home. One of Bull City's finest, Phil stays true to the game and keeps the Getback bumpin in the background. What else for a top chef?

Also want to remind all y'all in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area that there will be a wine tasting held by Phil and friends at the Richardson House, in Durham. Check out the details below.

Eskay said this album was more soulful than The Blueprint and I really just looked it over and credited it to the hype. I was mistaken. This album, to me, is Jay's second best album he's put out. I don't know if it's because Jay watched a movie (which definitely ain't no Goodfellas or Carlito's Way), because he got tired of young boys talkin greasy, or because he realized he can still murder 99% of the game on wax... but dammit, if this shit ain't amazing.

The production by Diddy and The Hitmen on this album is amazing, and really, it is his most soulful album and doesn't contain one single Kanye track. Amazing.

Roc Boys (And The Winner Is)... - Jay-Z
Crazy video... "Young Hov" put down a young Jay-Z's swag perfectly.

Been gone for a minute, but you gotta excuse me. Four straight weeks of homecomings (NCCU, Hampton/Howard, NC A&T, & UNC) will take a toll on a college student. No drinking this week, but I can't promise nothin for the weekend. Just got to say I've had a ball and thanks to my boys Yusuf, Major, Kev and Kearns cause they've made these last few weeks a WIN! Like the '72 Dolphins, baby!

I know this is a few weeks old, but shit... Phonte shreds this.
