He’s called God’s favorite DJ, but when you have the extraordinary skills and experience like DJ Clark Kent does, you won’t find many who would argue with that bold claim. The brooklyn based DJ/producer was the lastest guest on Elliott Wilson and Bdot’s excellent Rap Radar Podcast and he didn’t disappoint. One of the best DJs to ever touch the turntables, Clark dropped so many jewels speaking on his countless experiences in the industry. This is a must listen.
It’s been five years since I dropped the first Found Tapes and we still haven’t gotten another The Lost Tapes album from Nasty Nas. I had no plans to follow up my first drop figuring by now we’d have that next Lost Tapes album but with it still nowhere on the horizon, I decided to put together another mixtape of unreleased Nas songs.
So here it is Nas: The Found Tapes Vol. 2 a collection of unreleased songs properly labeled and in the CDQ form Nas fans deserve to hear them in.
Nas: The Found Tapes Vol. 2 drops tomorrow, in the interim here’s a bonus track that won’t be on the tape. Stream the song and read the backstory.

The field of gaming headsets is a very competitive and crowded one but that didn’t deter Monster from throwing their proverbial hat into the ring. The brand most known for their cables and high-performance headphones announced at E3 this past June a new partnership with Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel, a 12x world champion gamer and founder of the award winning collection of Fatal1ty Gaming Gear products. Under the agreement Monster and the Fatal1ty team collaborated on the design in an effort to bring to market a gaming headset that brought performance and value at a price gamers new and experienced could readily afford. The slickly designed FXM100 meets both criteria delivering crisp sound with a $79.95 price tag that won’t kill your pockets.

When Seattle Seahawks’ defensive back Richard Sherman isn’t blanketing wide receivers, you might find him on the virtual playing field racking up kills in Call of Duty:Black Ops III. With the NFL draft behind us, the self-proclaimed hardcore player recently spent a weekend in New York as part of a promo event with Activision. In between giving out shirts to amazed fans in the street, Sherman also took part in a live stream with Youtubers Hike the Gamer and Typical Gamer. The star cornerback then shared his thoughts on why he’ll never be better than a nine year old in COD, and despite beating the odds and becoming one of the top players in the NFL; his work is still not done.

2012 saw the arrival of Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, a traditional game that reminded me of the old Contra games, with a more lighthearted spin on it. Rocketbirds still offered plenty of frenetic violence except it featured birds as the target practice. Enter Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, the sequel that sees Hardboiled Chicken’s return as he looks to end the evil iL Putzki’s reign of terror. Continue reading
