RSVP Gallery!!!

As told by Andrew from Fake Shore Drive:
Marc Moran has teamed up with Virgil and Don C to open the RSVP Gallery: "The Parallel Between Pop Art & Luxury" in Wicker Park. I stopped by the store this weekend to check it out firsthand and I was more than impressed with what they've created. The "curators" have kept the layout extra 'minimalist' and feature some of the dopest pop art, flashing lights (Chanel, Rolex, Apple) and inventory in Chicago. They also have runs in all sizes of the Yeezy's as well as Kanye's Louis Vuitton shoe line. Yes, you read that correctly. Runs in all sizes. They also have a Louis Vuitton skateboard, if you're in the market for one of those. I highly recommend stopping by and checking it out for yourself.
I'm definitly going to check this store out as soon as I get a chance!!! YESSIR!!! Been waitin' on somethin' like this to hit the Chi!!!

In Episode #10, Eternia introduces the viewers to the musicians she plays with: DJ Boo, Chesney Snow, & Colin Dean. They are joined on stage by Grammy-award winner Maya Azucena for their Encore. Pumpkinhead has to make up for missing E's set, and as usual E gets the official stamp of approval from a few "co-signs" at the end of the night... then tells 'em what she's really after! On September 4th, Eternia will be performing live @ Sputnik (Brooklyn) with MC Lyte, Jean Grae, and more! Definitely come out for an amazing show - more details to follow shortly. I've also included a "Bonus" audio track from Ras Kass, where he gives Eternia a special shout-out in the track & no doubt that's some hip-hop foreshadowing of things to come in the near future! lol

In the upcoming months, eternia will release steady video & audio leaks leading up to the highly anticipated release of eternia & MoSS's debut album, "AT LAST". Follow them as they shop for a record deal, promote the album, and countdown to the release date. And you just never know what special guests may pop up... stay tuned!

Video: Raekwon Talks Slaughterhouse & Cuban Linx 2!!!

Okay, so this phone conversation took place BEFORE the Joe Budden beef. But I did speak with him to get his thoughts on Slaughterhouse - and it's interesting hearing his answer before one of his people punched Joe in the face at the Rock the Bells concert in California. He also speaks on the new album, and the difficulties of having a classic album so early on in his career.

R.I.P. to Baatin from the Almighty Slum Village!!! YOU WILL BE MISSED!!! TOO MANY ARE DYING RIGHT NOW.........SIGN OF THE TIMES!!!



Baatin, who left Slum Village around 2003, had said in interviews over the years that he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and struggled with emotional problems. He embarked on a solo career but reportedly had recently rejoined the group.

Born Titus Glover in 1974, the Detroit native adopted the name Baatin in the 1990s to reflect a newfound spirituality. "Baatin" was "Islamic for 'hidden,' " he once said.

While in high school on Detroit's east side, he started rapping and formed what would eventually be called Slum Village with Jay Dee -- who died in 2006 of complications from lupus -- and T3.


At a nondescript Detroit storefront called the Hip-Hop Shop, the group honed its skills at open-mike nights along with a young Eminem.

Slum Village was "among the best" of the hip-hop groups to come out of Detroit, Soren Baker said in The Times in 2000.

"Where Eminem relies on lyrics full of violence and confrontation, the trio . . . takes a more universal approach," delivering "a balanced, soulful sound and attitude that separates Slum Village from rap's two dominant trends: the glossy glamorization of excess and the hard-core gangster sound," Baker said.

Slum Village's lauded major-label debut, 2000's "Fantastic, Vol. 2," was "widely decreed the torchbearer of progressive hip-hop," and the 2002 follow-up album, "Trinity," reaffirmed that position, reviewer Kris Ex wrote in The Times in 2002.

"Trinity" contained the group's first bona fide radio hit, "Tainted." By then, innovative DJ-producer Jay Dee had largely been replaced by lyricist Elzhi.

Slum Village shunned trends and injected spiritual and social commentary into its work.

"If people could open their minds," Baatin told The Times in 2000, "they could see a broader perspective of hip-hop instead of categorizing it as 95-beats-per-minute, loud snares and muffled samples. . . . It could be anything."

Baatin is survived by a son, Michael Majesty Ellis, 9; a daughter, Aura Grace Glover, 1; his parents, Howard and Grace Glover; and a sister, Tina, all of Detroit, according to the Free Press.
