What up. Just a note and reminder. When I put a video up here or a song. I'm not saying I was first to post it or anything like that. Take it as I'm posting it because I want you to vibe to it. Allow me to DJ in your life a little. I won't steer you wrong. Just wanna make that clear because for some reason I got an email from someone who seems to think, that I think I'm the first to post certain videos when you are so far from what I'm thinking when I post music num nutz. You're thinking to much, just do your job and press play. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight Now!

We're back with part 2 of the Greg "Gate$" Davenport exclusive interview with the real Freeway Ricky Ross and the OG drops some knowledge on what were some of the things that influenced him into a life of crime, his feelings on the current state of hip-hop and what he thinks about the rapper Rick Ross being a correctional officer.
Keeping it light on the hump day. Ace Hood comes through with the "Ride" remix with a mob of cameos. DJ Khaled is playing no games at this point. Looks like the well oiled machine known as Florida just ain't gonna stop. And that's great. Keeps everybody else on there toes. The cash flow is official and certified. From Slip-N-Slide to We the Best Music Group, TJ Chapman, DJ Demp, Trick, Redd Eyezz, Blood Raw, Hatian Fresh, mane hold up. I'll pick back up next week, just let it be known the Gunshine state is ready.
Both North and South Carolina have big movements on the way in '09, with key players like Charlamagne the God, DJ Chuck T and DJ B-Lord just to name a few. Their music has been overlooked for so long. They really represent a lot of states not only in the South but all over the country. Places like Arkansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Kentucky, Oklahoma.
No better way to kick off the week than with one of the hottest cats in the game right now. Trae is easily one of the most underrated in the game. His flow is one that you have to pay close attention to catch his vibe but once you're locked in then it on. Here's his new video where he addresses a few things. There is no telling how far Trae can go. Look for him to be all over the place in 2009.
What up wit ya? Some of you see what I'm attempting to do with this opportunity SOHH has given me and I appreciate the emails. You really understand where I'm going with all this. I may not do the typical Jerry Springer style blogger, but I do have confidence that I may be on the verge of being a part of the balance in giving you the true depth of the Southern hip hop voice. I say that lightly because without each and every other Southern publication my voice ain't shit. In the words of Derrty Ent. We All We Got (damn i gotta get back to the lou).
Time for them toons mayne. "Welcome to the South" was done by Jay over in Tucson, AZ. Check out his interpretation of the south. It's actually pretty close to how things should be concerning conflicts and really everyone not just the South. We all need those people to step in when it's obvious that we just misunderstand so much trying to be the number one negro. That's a trait we picked up along the way from Uncle Tom, and I can't wait to see it leave. Evolution will win as the new American black male has to see that you have nothing without your people. You are a hollow trophy for whoever cuts your checks at the time when you put yourself before everyone as a business. That's another topic.
Once again it's on! Greg "Gate$" Davenport is live and in the flesh and this time I've got a trill exclusive for you.

Dallas, Texas is a freight train coming. You can't see it, but you will feel it, I promise. While H-Town laid a good foundation, the D has a Swang all they own. Check out this list of songs from some of Dallas' best.
Memphis Hip-Hop has been the back bone for the South for a long time. They just never really get there credit. Take my word for it all that will change in 2009. Ya boy L'Daialogue Dicaprio summed up a lot of their history in this short song and video.

Whassapnin. Yes hold the S for two seconds on that. I'ma stick to the music today. Seems Plies is ready to capitalize on that growing fan base of his. Album #3 is on the way. This is one hell of a move by the good folks over at Slip-N-Slide Records. Ted Lucas, the CEO of the label, recently revealed to MTV that Plies' third solo album is titled Da Realest and will be hitting shelves in December.

Lil' KeKe is a Down South Don. 2008 and he's still has a flow that's classic. Here's a listen at the first single, "Money in the City," feat. Slim Thug, Paul Wall and up-and-coming R&B singer Tre Vidure on the hook. Take a listen and tell me what you think?
If Trey Songz is not the MVP of hood anthems right now I don't know who is. This time he helps Ace Hood slide his way into the hearts of the ladies with "Ride." This is a perfect joint for Monday or Saturday morning, just easy listening. Congrats to Khaled. Congrats to Flo Rida. New artist are exactly what we need more of. The bigger the variety the more it will become about the music. Now we just need that breakout song from ya broham and we might just have a new Florida Gator. Today will be real light but I'll make it up to you this week. Let's just say I had a rough weekend.

For those of you in the thick of football season you know the feeling oh to well. But for the rest of you guys here's a clip of the world famous Southern University's "Human Jukebox".
Keeping it light today. Mr. Scarface gives you a straight forward approach to politics. You gotta love the way he just puts it out there. I can't help but laugh at all the pretend democrats that have been telling you to go vote but never said who to vote for in the past because of the hidden agenda. This year they all side with Obama because they..... well....let me not got that far. Being a blogger is dangerous as hell.
For those of you who have been keeping up with the Dirty Blog you know how I posted the 40 Glocc piece before and was bothered by the whole dam thing. And really its because I would hate to see someone get hurt over not really understanding what they have gotten themselves into.

Now maybe its me, but I think we have reached a point in hip-hop where we have this great big variety of music to choose from. All we gotta do is organize it.
David Banner's got one of this year's sleeper albums. The Greatest Story Ever Told is making a steady move in the streets. But just in case you been missin' what he's been saying here's some fresh music from the Mississippi Vet. This reminds me of "Grey Skies". Now what you know bout that? Then you don't know David Banner.
Although most of you got what I was saying in my middle finger piece, a few decided to put words in my mouth in their email replies. Instead of answering you one by one. Let me address the hall in this fashion. In fact I can prove what we really think courtesy of Rhapsody. Killer Mike, DJ Drama, and Devin the Dude all comment on special hip-hop moments in there life in regards to hip-hop pioneers Cypress Hill, De La Soul, and Slick Rick.
Chamillionare and Trae put it down in the city after Ike. I told someone the other day rappers will fill a void left by athletes and other prominent figures from the hood. Cham and Trae are proving that.
