Skillz is from Richmond, VA (Yes, thats where we live, so what?). Skillz has been on the underground circuit for a while naking his own music, but more noteably ghostwriting for such artists as P.Diddy...I'm willing to bet if Diddy ever said anything on a track more than "Can't Stop Won't Stop" someone else wrote it. But recently Skillz has been popping up on many mixtapes and after hooking up with our boys dad (Carvin Haggins, producer for Musiq Soulchild and many more) he came up with his latest album titled "The Million Dollar Backpack".
I bought this album without hearing a song on it, because I figured that I should supoort Richmond hip-hop and cause Carvin produced it. I must say though, this album is nasty! It's got your hard songs, chill joints and a song so smooth and catchy you can't help but sing it. With features from Black Thought, Freeway and Common it's got enough extra flavor without you forgetting whos CD it really is.
Just go cop "Million Dollar Backpack" you won't be upset.

Just hours ago, Roots member ?uestlove revealed to Okayplayer.com that the bus, complete with full lounge and bathroom on the first level, was flipped upside-down.
The news came just days after the group announced a temporary retirement from touring.
"In reality the crash was all of about 7 seconds," wrote ?uestlove. "...but to do a 360 on the highway and end up ramped up (the van that crashed into ours was UNDER our double decker bus) in the air....is....well...a frigging miracle."
"My first thought was not move a fucking inch," he continued in the e-mail. "I always had fear that we would fall off a cliff while in high mountain traveling like Denver or Switzerland. I couldn't tell where gravity began and ended."
The group was en route to a stop on the Glow in the Dark Tour in Paris, which ?questlove wrote would "be a miracle" if they made.
To conclude the e-mail, The Roots' drummer wrote: "Til then just wanna let everyone know that we are happy to be alive. and not in that tv cliche way

Luda always seems to bring out the creativity that hip-hop has lost over the last few years...do you remember "Number One Spot", the Austin powers inspired song? Or any one of his numerous videos that mad you laugh the entire way through, including his new joint with T-Pain (You can watch it below).
Basically, it's time that people start appriciating him while he is still around.
This new evidence landed Wright in prison for the next 20 years.
Blue, 28, told police he had known Wright before the shooting, but that they weren't on good terms. He testified that Wright's friends egged him on as he chased and shot Blue in the thigh and groin.
Blue later told police that he recognized Wright's voice on a CD, where the rapper said "Chad Blue knows how I shoot."
In addition to a sentence of 20 years for two counts of aggravated assault, Wright will spend another 20 years on probation.
....Really Fam? C'mon even OJ's people didn't let him release the book "I didn't kill her but if i did this is how i'd do it"....is OJ smarter than you?
