Hopefully a new single off his debut album…meaning it is getting closer to being released. With every new track he drops, shows me how ready he is to blow up.

Would you be upset if you were rockin’ and then all of a sudden………………..watch what happens!
On October 29, 1996, Ghostface Killah released his debut album: Ironman. This is one of the earlier Wu-Tang albums and easily one of the best. This album had many guest verses from Wu-Tang members and production by RZA.
My personal favorite tracks: “Daytona 500”, “Soul Controller”, “Fish”, “Winter Warz”, “All That I Got is You”….What is your favorite??
That Mood Muzik 4 is sick. Easily one of the best mixtapes of the year.
Joe Buddens murders this track and if it was a solo track I would have NO problem with it….but Joell also does his thing and since the video is missing his verse….here it is:[audio:http://www.7thboro.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Follow-Your-Lead-Joell-Ortiz.mp3|titles=”Follow Your Lead”- Joell Ortiz verse]
ANOTHER MC who is lyrically above most. (I feel a new 7th Boro “BEST MC LIST” is on the way…)
CROOKED I- HOT TOTTIE (Hip Hop Weekly Reloaded #12)

It’s gonna be mad weird not having squeeze radio around anymore! I guess we could still reminisce like Mary J. Blige though…..or watch 8th St. Latinas. Enjoy this video!
I remember getting real hype as a kid whenever I got my hands on a new Tony Touch cassette. The Rock Steady DJ has some serious skills. This tape is like a fine wine……it gets better with age! Bless.
Mills: What is meaning of your name: Black Irish?
BI: Black Irish is a term used to describe Irish people with dark features (dark hair, dark eyes)….It’s a term my mother introduced to me because my family is all white Irish people with dark features….I’ve learned that it’s a term that has a lot of meanings to a lot of different people…I know black people that are Irish that use it to describe themselves and it’s also a term used to describe all Irish people when they came to America during the potato famine which was 1847 (Black 47)….Thanks for asking this question because now I can fully explain it…Basically for me it was a term used by my family and I decided it described me best because it’s a part of my heritage and it also describes me because I feel like my music and thoughts can be dark at times and I definitely always felt like a black sheep, a rebel so that’s pretty much it….It stands out and it’s powerful especially in this country when majority of people automatically assume it means I’m Irish and Black but it has a deeper meaning than just race…
Mills: Who are some of your influences? What made you want to be an MC?
BI: Well I started writing when I was 7 years old like poetry and little raps and then I heard “Don’t Sweat The Technique” and “Know The Ledge” by Rakim and that was it for me…I know write from there at age 10 that I wanted to rap. As far as influences I would say Gangstarr, Boot Camp, Wu-Tang, Cypress Hill, House Of Pain and Rage Against The Machine really influenced my music. Those groups created a sound that touched my soul and still does. It’s not only music. It feels like a soundtrack to my life. I’m a fan of all music though. My father put me on to Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin etc. and my mom put me on to more soulful r&b music. So I listen to everything.
Mills: If you can set up a “dream” concert…Who would it include?
