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.

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.

Tecla is in My New Mezcla

Take one look at that wicked cover art and tell me you are not interested in who this chick is! I was reading a blog from MTV Iggy about Das Racist’s party for the release of their mixtape Sit Down, Man. Don’t worry, I’m going to post the review soon. As for this post. This post right here, it’s very informative. Every time I find a new artist that is worth listening to I nearly go KooKoo for Cocoa Puffs, Planet of The Apes, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Gwen Stefani. Why? You ask. Well look up at the title of this blog. What does it say? It says “Know The Unknwn” in other words I am saying, “Get Smart. This Music Right Here. I Mean This Music Right Here, Is Legit! Like Too Legit To Quite. MC Hammer.” Okay, back to the post. I was reading a blog about Das Racist’s album party at the Santos Party House in NY and I noticed that this woman named Tecla was listed as one of the many performers of that night.

So, being the person I am, I Googled her. Notice how I said “Googled” not “searched on the internet.” That’s called a Proprietary Eponym. Get Smart Y’all. Geez I keep getting sidetracked. Sooooooo basically I am trying to say this chick Tecla is sick. She’s beyond sick. She’s ill. Lil Wayne. OMG I keep saying off topic things.

Tecla is like a mix of pop, euro, electro, I don’t even know how to explain-ness. I am diggin her style. I think she’s worth dropping a couple bucks on Amazon to purchase her CD. Take a look at her Bandcamp page and listen to her music. http://tecla.bandcamp.com/

BTW: Mezcla means mix F.Y.I. Get it, “Tecla is in my new mezcla.” She’s in my mix because she fits in so well with all the other artist I love. She’s definitely going on the Unknwn Artists page!!

Where The Mix At?

Are you wondering where’s the “Music Mix Monday’s” ? Probably not since this blog is so new, no one in internet-land seems to notice it. Well what had happened was I made the post on Saturday and got distracted by unnecessary drama on Facebook due to a horrible break up with an unimportant entity (my favorite insult!).

Basically, there will be a music mix coming to the internets on another day this week. So far, I have had a couple of hits and one spam comment. This blogging stuff is going better than I thought!

Get Smart. Kill Spammers. Just Kidding. Kill Yourself If You Are A Spammer. Less People In Prison. Prisons Get More Money Than Schools Annually.

GET SMART.

Lady Gaga Gone Too Gaga Over Diet?

Alegedly, Lady Gaga has been hospitalized in the past for having dangerous diet practices that hint an eating disorder. Ms. Gaga’s former tour manager, David Ciemny claims that in 2009 alone, she was hospitalized six times because of her disorderly eating habits. According to Ciemny, Gaga goes to great lengths to fit into those sinful costumes that makes her little monsters go gaga for Gaga. “When I say she was sick, I mean physically and mentally,” David said in the new blockbuster book “Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga. Ciemny’s wife also notes some sort of odd behavior from Gaga in this book as well.

All  I know is that many celebs suffer from eating disorders and even though Gaga does appear to be remarkably thin at times, I would need more evidence than her former tour manager just saying so. Not to knock him but, how legit can you be when your a ‘former’ anything!
