DJ Screw, "South Side"
DJ Screw, "Remember Them Days"
Master P, "If I Could Change" (Freestyle w/Lil' Keke, Big Pokey, Big Jut & Big Moe)
I've been sick as a dog the past three days, which should explain the lack of posts. I figured that I would up some music that sounds right to my head full of Nyquil. These songs come off the recent DJ Screw release The Greatest Hits, a compilation of some of the best flows and songs, all proceeds benefitting the DJ Screw Foundation. Buy it here, highly recommended, especially for those looking to hear some Screw but don't know where to start. What the hell, I'm also throwing up a freestyle from Plots and Schemes, one of the classic tapes and one of the greatest freestyles. I'll be back to regular posting tomorrow, as we'll be featuring some Lady Sovereign and some old YYYs and whatever else comes up.
-Read Seymour Hersh's latest piece in the New Yorker if you are dying to feel the same nausea in your stomach as I do. It chronicles the Administration's desire to go to war with Iran and developing war plans. I mean, are we in Narnia? Is it Groundhog's Day?
-Wanna feel even sicker? Read this essential New Yorker article, "Political Science", from Michael Specter which details the Bush Administration's attacks on science and scientists. Frightening, frightening stuff. The Washington Post adds to the story, looking at the pressure being put on climate scientists working for the government in discussing global warming publicly.

-Alright, that should give you an idea of how I get when I'm sick and cooped up inside. Thanks to MC, RS, JS and J C-S for putting up with me and taking care of your bol. Back tomorrow with Lady Sov and less bile.
