Mixtapes anyone?



So I’m back in action but I don’t know what to post about (as usual!) however, I have a lot of cool finds to share with you all. Shout out to the fact that I have over 260 views with no promotion! By the way, only two people I know have contributed to those views and they definitely only visited the site twice so don’t even say “oh well you’re just telling the people you know to read your blog and hit it up a lot!” because that is extremely untrue.

Anyways, back to the post. My beloved Mad Decent website has a new place to get mixtapes!!! Click here to check it out!



Put Your Clothes Back On Kanye

Kanye, Kanye, Kanye, What Crazy Thing Are You Going To Do Next?

What’s goodie yall. Back with another post about the craziness found within pop culture nowadays! Before I begin, shout out to the 250 something views so far!!! This blog has only been up for maybe a month or so and despite the lack of marketing & promotion, Know the Unknwn is doing pretty well.

Back to the topic… If you haven’t heard, Kanye West supposedly sent pictures of him in the nude to multiple women and now the pictures are being leaked! First off, what the hell are you doing Kanye? I know you said that if you worked out for a while you would pose nude and stuff but come on! Take a look at the picture below. Mr.West  doesn’t look horrible but he should have just stopped at shirtless pics.

I think after the death of his mom Kanye went off the deep end a little. There are some things you just CAN’T and SHOULD NOT do when you are famous. Sending naked photos to females via phone, email, or any other technological invention is one of those things.

Go cop Runaway though. I hear it’s pretty good.

Kanye West. Get Smart Bro. Keep Your Clothes On. Stay Away From The Nude Pictures. Oh And Twitter Too. Just Kidding About The Latter.


Totally Random

So I know the posts have gotten a little sparse on here but bare with me. With the whole “Gradient Eyes: apparel” line coming out, I’ve been super busy. Wait, what? Did I just say Gradient Eyes Inc. is coming out with a line of apparel (for the slightly slow viewers, apparel means clothing…) -Yes GE.SF is the latest invention! I won’t talk about it much since things are under construction! By the way shout out to Damn Pigeon (pronounced Dom-P-jon), the rosaries is looking legit!

Anyways, I just wanted to make a totally random post…Shout out to everyone I go to school with! Black Diamond Gang all day!!!

That’s basically all I have to say. Oh, and if you click on the “Cool Stuff” tab…you’re gonna find nothing. Remember, this blog site is still under construction. Please check back later though. I’m probably going to put up any contest and giveaways info there!

Get Smart. Be Random. Black Diamond Gang.


You Just Should…

Hello internets,

I’ve been gone for a minute. Resting, chilling, and most importantly thinking. I have a couple of pretty good posts coming up so look out for that! First off shout out to the people who went to my YouTube page from here or vice versa. It makes me so happy to see my self promotion is going relatively well.

So, it is pretty late but, I have been thinking about some stuff and just needed to rant (as usual). What are you going to rant about UNKNWN? Well y’all, I’m going to rant about relationships. Yes, I said relationships. Such taboo huh? Anywho, I’m not going to get too personal but I will say this, breaking up is hard but there are always lessons to be learned from the sometimes horrible experience.

One thing I just realized is that you should never have to force someone to recognize you as their significant other. That person just should… I have been trippin off of something I noticed about a recent ex of mine and I came to this realization. If you notice that you are pushing for your girlfriend or boyfriend to do things such as introduce you as their partner to even changing their “Single” status to “In a Relationship” on Facebook then leave that fool in the dust! If that person really values the relationship, they should have nothing to hide, right? I have always known this but like they say, it’s easier said than done.

My point is, I pushed to be acknowledged (and finally was) but I just so happened to notice, he (the guy I broke up with) has no problem talking highly of his “new chick”. Of course I was heated! I mean, who wouldn’t? As if breaking up isn’t enough, just go ahead and rub the whole situation in my face! Being the analytical person I am, I tried to learn a lesson from my emotions. Yes, I was mad that I had to basically beg and plead to be recognized and this new girl got instant recognition. And yes, I was sad because I felt something was wrong with me. BUT, I then became enlightened to the fact that I was trying to make a puzzle piece fit into the wrong place. Did I just compare a bad relationship to a puzzle? Yes I did, and here’s why. When things work, they just work. You don’t need force or debate or even violence! Things just work. As hard as it might be, sometimes we as people just need to realize that not all relationships work! I constantly reflect upon the relationship and think there was something wrong with me as do many other men and women. However, nothing was wrong with me, I was just trying to make something that was never going to work, work!

Did I mention that this was a rant post? So all in all, guys and gals out there, you just should acknowledge your significant other from Day 1. If not, just end things. There’s no such thing as “warming up” to someone. Either it works or it doesn’t work, it’s that simple!

Get Smart. Dump That Sucka! You Just Should.


Throw Back Thursday

What’s good y’all? I’m here to take anyone over the age of 25 way back. I’m talking 1990’s Bonita Applebum “You gotta put me on…” back! Took a bit of a break on the music but I’m back to hit you with some old school hip hop joints!

So, I have been soul searching lately and something told me to search “A Tribe Called Quest” in YouTube’s search bar. By doing so, I have found what I think is the most live playlist ever! There was some Digable Planets, Pharcyde, Gang Starr, Busta Ryhmes, and more. I was jammin’ for hours.

Anyway, here’s my top 5 throw-back joints from the late 80’s & 90’s. It’s super legit so hop on ’em quick! Don’t know if this is going to be a weekly occurrence but I will definitely be dropping in with some old school hip hop classics often.

1. Electric Relaxation – A Tribe Called Quest

2. Bonita Applebum – A Tribe Called Quest

3. Mass Appeal – Gang Starr

4. Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like That) – Digable Planets

5. California Dreamin’ – Dream Warriors


Of course I have more favorites but, I want you explore and find throw backs of your own.


Bruno Mars Hit With A Felony

Bruno Mars, in Las Vegas Police Custody

“Just The Way You Are” singer Bruno Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, has been charged with felony drug possession. Last month Mars was taken into custody by Las Vegas police after his show at the Hard Rock Hotel. Supposedly, a bathroom attendant alerted a security guard after noticing a man spending a lot of time in one of the stalls and suspected he was using drugs. The attendant said he noticed Mars had a “baggy of white powder substance.” and once confronted, Mars gave the guard the white substance consistant with cocaine. Reportedly, Mars recognized his wrongdoing, telling the guard he “did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before.”

At the time of his arrest, he tested positive for cocaine and according toThe Associated Press, if convicted, the star faces up to four years in jail and a $5000 fine.

Hopefully Bruno Mars will learn a massive lesson from this incident. First it was Kid Cudi, then Paris Hilton, and now Bruno Mars! What’s up with celebrities and coke? I think everyone needs to take a chill pill, but one that doesn’t contain drugs of course!

Get Smart you guys. Drugs may fix things for the moment but those problems will still be there when you come down from your high.


Fake Patois

Man, I have been trying to post about stuff but, I have been overwhelmed by the near 100 views I got off of my last post. What can top that? Nothing but Fake Patois could come close. Check this video out. It’s old but I love the song. Don’t know what a fake patois is? Well Get Smart and Google it! By the way, Wikipedia is the best thing ever!

I love how Das Racist is talking about fake patois but the whole song is done in a fake patois.

Oh, by the way, shoot me a comment below about what you would like to see me post about. Oh oh oh, and subscribe please! Thanks.
