With 2010 coming to an end, we at the 7th Boro put together a collection of our Favorite Verses of the Year.
We want to thank everyone who has been supporting us and everything we are doing. We started late in the year, but we feel we accomplished many things. With all the continued support of the real Hip Hop fans, the 7th Boro will only get bigger and better in 2011.
Lupe Fiasco’s newest video, “The Show Goes On”, is officially MTV Jams’ Jam Of The Week. I used to love tuning in to watch Hip Hop videos, until all the music channels turned into a continuous playlist of wack and garbage rap. But, it is GREAT to see that Lupe will be in heavy rotation.
Stroy said that “Lupe doesn’t have the IT factor”…he knows how much I disagree, and now MTV Jams also disagrees. (even tho I probably will NOT agree with MTV Jams again for a long while)
A few weeks ago two posts from our site were featured on the TROY Blog’s November & December Blogospheric conditions posts. This is where Troy Blog chooses the most interesting (original and fresh) posts and creates the month’s best. I was really hyped especially since Mills & I have been at this for only a few months. Since then, I have been peeping their blog and forum because it reps the classics as well as the new joints. I came across this Best of Native Tongue list created by the TROY Blog and featured on Complex.com. I thought to myself, “How do you ranks all these classic joints?”. I don’t know how they did it but they did…….and did it well (like Todd Smith). If you haven’t had a chance to peep this mega post you can do so right here. If you’re not familiar with The Native Tongues, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Listen to the tracks and enjoy. Bless.
This is a remixed video for an old Saigon track. I had a discussion with Mills a few days ago about who I felt more….Jay Electronica or Saigon. After hearing this track again. I’m going to say Saigon for now. I think Jay Elec will eventually surpass him over time though. I guess we will see on February 15th. Peace.
