Nikki Lynette On Chief Keef & Violence In Chicago

What nobody wants you to know about the violence in Chicago

I have been in New York on business for the past couple weeks. Every time someone finds out I'm from Chicago, the reply is always something like "Yo... Chicago is going crazy right now." Then they quote something to me about the latest death toll in my hometown. Honestly, I don't wanna hear that shit. I grew up around gang violence and poverty. It wasn't until I witnessed a murder/suicide in the apartment across the hall from me that I decided to save up money and leave the hood for good.

One of my friends who runs a prominent hip hop blog here in New York asked me why Chicago is so much worse this year and why our city is so bad that people like Cheif Keef were able to build a buzz by "talking that little kid street shit." I looked him in his eyes and said "Because people like you publicize it. You helped make Cheif Keef a star. People in Chicago finally get to see someone from the block getting fame, and it just so happens the rappers from Chicago who y'all choose to acknowledge are on some goon shit. So don't talk to me about the violence in my city. You contributed."

Talib Kweli & Z-Trip - Attack The Block Mixtape

I don't know if anyone else had encoding/metadata problems with the files for this, but I did.  I had to download an encoder to fix this.  Apparently it's a Windows 7 issue, but both of these links are good to go.  Streaming available below as well.

The Kid Daytona Breaks Down "Summer Games" Mixtape

Hulu Is Looking Brand New

I hadn't been on Hulu in a good minute so I figured it would be a nice time to clean up my queue.  Movie trailers can really clog that bad boy up, but I digress.  Anyway, I've always liked the site's layout, but it appears even cleaner, now.  Check it out:

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Trailer & Gameplay Footage

According to Kotaku, Metal Gear creator, Hideo Kojima stated that Ground Zeroes is an introduction to Metal Gear Solid 5.
The original Snake, also known as Big Boss, is back: and he's the star this time, like he was in Metal Gear Solid 3 and several other games in the series. He can use a helicopter to fly around the world, going between countries and taking on missions.
We're also introduced to a suited figure that appears to be one of the game's villains. The character wears a black, flat-brimmed hat, his face burnt and disfigured. He appears to be part of a group called XOF—FOX backwards—and he calls his squad of soldiers "an army without a nation."
