It's been a little over three years I think since Waitin for the DJ first popped up on the interwebs.  Since then, we've garnered an ungodly number of hits, begun receiving submissions from prominent and obscure artists across the world, and seen advertisers come and go and come again.

Throughout that entire history, we've never had to take a break or miss a week of new tracks and videos from all those artists and more until now.  The fact of the matter is that I'm heading to graduate school in Arizona and don't foresee any freetime in my future.  I'm already at a loss for time to post stuff on the blog.

So thanks for all the love thus far.  Check back every once in a while - I'm keeping all the links active so you can scour the archives for your favorite videos and material from the past.  Besides, you never know, I might just decide to pop back up one day.

Kool Keith breaks out another of his patented tongue-in-cheek style videos to accompany his consistently mischievous lyrics.

"He looks for Whole Foods wherever he goes."

I know I've been slow on the posting recently, but this one couldn't get passed up.

Em and Royce prove that lyricism hasn't been completely abandoned in popular hip-hop.  The most interesting thing about this collaboration is the fact that for years I've been hearing people diss Eminem, saying he stole his style completely from Royce Da 5'9".  Instead of generating some sort of stupid regular-issue beef between the two though, their similar styles have brought them together for a joint project.

Summer 2011 is the season of dream collaborations.  Allegedly, Watch the Throne - the Jay & Ye collabo - is set to finally drop on July 4.  Keep your ears open.

This is definitely my favorite track off Nato's REACH EP.  Glad to see it got the video treatment.

Shot on-sight in Austin, TX during South By Southwest.

Enjoy and check out Nato's REACH EP here.

MANIAC is a short film inspired by the song. It is not a music video and it has no reference to the song content. It will be scored by Dot and I as a film with all new music. Directed By Shia LaBeouf for Grassy Slope and Ragin4Dayz Productions.
