Wassup, this is Chiefer Kelvin with the first installment of my Weekly Detox column. The only detox you should be expecting this year and maybe for the rest of your life, no disrespect to Dr. Dre, haha. Me and the other Chiefers were talking about going in a new direction with the blog. We’re also currently working on a new layout so don’t worry, that’s on the way. But we got high as fuck and came up with this idea. Every Sunday, I’ll taking a break from smoking to break down all the Hip-Hop related shit that happened this past week. I know that wasn’t grammatically correct but I really don’t care because I’ll be typing the same way I would be as if I were talking. I’ll be testing this column out and hopefully you guys love it so we can make this a regular thing for the blog. We post a lot of music throughout the week, but we don’t really post much news so this shit would be perfect for those people won’t don’t keep up with music on a regular basis like I do. So let me start it off with the biggest news of the week… (more…)
Here is the artwork for Big KRIT’s long awaited debut album that got pushed back. Looks like Hip-Hop history is set to change on June 5th.
This is the artwork 4 my debut album “Live From The Underground”. It’s a representation of how I feel about underground vs mainstream music. At times I feel like mainstream music operates on a totally different planet. This illustrates how I’ve crash landed into the mainstream to bring the sounds from the underground back 2 the forefront. I want to thank everyone for all their support of my journey so far. Especially Team Big K.R.I.T. and my K4L supporters. I put twitter and facebook backgrounds in here for y’all to put on your pages. Let’s make history on June 5th… – K.R.I.T.

Complex grabs Hot Spitta for an extensive, written interview where he touches on a bunch of subjects all Curren$y fans will want to read about. With The Stoned Immaculate just around the corner, he talks about what he expects from the highly anticipated album and all that good shit. Being that 2 Chainz is probably the hottest rapper out right now, I’ve included the excerpt of Spitta talking about him:
How do you feel seeing 2 Chainz touching so many more people than he did as Tity Boi?
You know what? It’s like a season. When it’s your season, when it comes to you, that’s from you staying in the game. I always say the universe or God won’t give it to you until you exhibit some faith. If it’s in you to do music, if it’s placed in your mind—this is what you’re gonna do.
If you waver in faith, like “Ahh it’s probably not,” then it won’t. Because you’re not going 100%. I hate to say it but you got to throw all your eggs in one basket—you know what I’m saying? Cause once that happens then the universe is like, “He believes in himself. I can’t fuck him. He’s got nothing else.”
And that dude held on, he’s been around long enough where a motherfucker could have been like, “Alright fuck this this shit. I’m about to bubble some fucking crack and get it poppin’.” But lo and behold, he held on and held on, and now it’s off the chain—like way more than he could have imagined.
It’s the same with me, and I don’t even have half the acclaim around me that 2 Chainz has going around him. All I’ve ever really wanted to do was keep my sneaker collection straight and keep the Chevys running and all. It’s way more than I’ve imagined it being. It’s way more than that for me, so it’s like crazy. It’s all in believing.
