dallas cowboys

i wonder how terrell owens feels about his "quarterback" being hurt. haha okay i quit.

shadoe valentine




"...damn, i got a mean flow
now keep your eye on me like a peephole..."
- shadoe valentine (fallin sky - mad world mixtape)

mmm hmm. is that so? well now that i see ya, it's time to dig beneath the surface of this 20 year old wonder by the name of shadoe valentine:

dom: who is shadoe valentine? in other words, what is the history behind the name?

shadoe: Shadoe Valentine is a complex mind, relaying his thoughts over tracks. I just want to get people to think. I feel many people don't actually listen to lyrics as much as they use to. Ironically, the name is self is not suppose to be thought provoking, it's just a name i came up with that sounded good.

dom: okay now Red Velvet. diggin the album. for anybody who hasn't heard it, give us a little history behind it.

shadoe: Red Velvet was a concept i came up with a couple years ago with my producer Nick Leon. The name is a metaphor for blood (no relation to the gang lol). It just symbolizes the nature of the album which is dark and violent, but the actual sound of of the album is smooth (like velvet) and laid back.

dom: what would you say is the best track on the whole album and why?

shadoe: There isn't necessarily a "best" track i think every piece of work i do is my best, but my favorite would have to be between "Top Down" and "God MC". I like "Top Down" just because of the over all feel of the track, the lyrics are on point the flow is smooth and the beat is incredible. "God MC" is just me showcasing my lyrical ability. I feel the execution was flawless, and the beat was just epic.

dom: how many other projects do you have out? list them

shadoe: aww man, ummm I have "Red Velvet", I'm on "Heart of The City" which is a mixtape from an artist named Jay Burna, I'm on "Water Break" which is a mixtape from a miami artist named Mikey, I'm on "Tha Binge" and "Light Switch" which are two mixtapes from B.Payne Tha Rapper, DJ Scoopz "Flawda Street Bangaz Vol.2", and i also have a new mixtape coming out Oct 31st called "MAD WORLD"

dom: most artists are listed by genre. what would yours be?

shadoe: I would be listed under MUSIC, i don't want to be casted into any specific genre. I just make music and that's all i want to do. If anyone feels that i belong in a certain genre than that's where i'll be in their mind. As long as they're listening that's all that matters.

dom: fair enough. hot people in the game right now. past/present, who would you "compare" to?

shadoe: with all honestly i couldn't tell you. I know who i want to be compared to though. When it's all said and done, I would like to be compared to Rakim, Eminem, Tupac, Big L, Big Pun, MF Doom, Royce da 5'9. I just wanna be up there with some of the greatest lyricist. I strive to be great and that's what i will be.

dom: that's a good list. last question, give me a line you spit that describes the story of your life.

shadoe:
"Some people had good ideas, but couldn't execute it
and truly the people around were too abusive
it makes you want to be reclusive
if you aint chasing what you see in your sleep, you dreams are useless"

this is a line off of a song i have on MAD WORLD called "Thinking". It relates to me because there are many people i see who give up their dreams because there are people constantly telling them its unrealistic. If everyone thought like these people who are shutting down the dreams of others, we wouldn't have any innovators, leaders, or entertainers. I choose to follow my dream, and i think everyone should too, otherwise you might be miserable for the rest of your life because you are too busy wondering what could have been if you just pursued your dream.

well done shadoe. you have earned the dom seal of approval.

nick 'noexit' leone



"go dj! thas my dj!" is what wayne say, but when down in florida that's what brandon "b payne" say...(damn i'm a poet lol). just who is this producer behind the hardest working man in the game by way of florida? nick "noexit" leone, that's who. and i got the 4-1-1:

dom: ok ok ok...b.payne doing his thing down in FL, why does he keep coming to you to produce his mixtapes? (explain what makes you different from other producers)

‎nick: well i think its because he knows i understand what production really is a lot more than most people who claim to be producers out there cuz i spend a lot of time tweaking sounds and mixes, and i can't lie i've heard im pretty talented ...with the beats.

dom: how long have you known b.payne?

nick: we met when i was a sophmore which was in 08

dom: hard question time: which mixtape (that ...you've worked on) is your favorite and why?

nick: i'd have to say red velvet because its the first real CD i did where it was almost all of my production and was all recorded in my studio which was in my brothers room at the time, plus me and shadoe had been in a group previously and where trying to break off and do our own thing which resulted into that album.

dom: what do people need to know about you?

nick: where to find the music so they can listen to it, b.payne's good at getting the word out.

dom: explain your style and where you draw inspiration?

nick: my style is everything because i listen to everything i make different beats for different people i don't mess with too many artists so i can mold styles around people to fit what i think they want.

dom: what would you consider to be your signature beat?

nick: I don't think i have a signature beat my style is constantly changing.

dom: a lot of great producers out there in the game. past or present, who is the greatest producer to ever bless the game in your eyes?

nick: quincy jones hands down, not to be corny but 1, he made thriller and 2, he has been around since the 40s

dom: which producer do you best identify with?

nick: Right now i'd have to say either Kanye West or RZA but that's just because of the project im working on

dom: anything lined up for the future?

nick: Im producing Zee's next CD, Shadoe's new mixtape called MAD WORLD is gonna drop very soon and possibly an EP from B.Payne.

well there you have it. he's young and motivated, coming for kanye (respect) and nothing short of greatness. take a bow young man...you have earned the dom seal of approval.

b payne tha rapper part 2


he's baaaaaaaacck! actually he never left. he was just busy with the re-up while you other cats were still wishing. check out the exclusive interview:

dom: what up man? i think it's time to do an update on the blogspot with the latest of the latest.

bpayne: well basically i just dropped a new cd two wednesdays ago called LightSwitch: Tha Mixtape (Hosted by: MysterBKS)...any questions you have for me?

dom: yeah bruh i'm listening to it right now. just heard lightswitch. what was your motivation/message behind this mixtape?

bpayne: basically i got tired of wondering if i was running the rap game in orlando, where im currently in school at the university of central florida, and i had some heartache over the summer where i started seeing an increase of hate, even from family and close friends. Not only that, i realized that i been grinding too hard to not take over. With that, i bottled that shit up and condensed it into ink for my pen to write up the cd. It was so from the heart that it only took me like a week to write strate thru. So LightSwitch is a metaphor/declaration saying now that the switch is up, its my turn to never go back down. BEWARE OF THA GLARE!!!

dom: i'm smellin ya right now! lol i'm hearing some maturation from the last mixtape. besides the what you listed so far, what else helped you to mature on the mic and get better?

bpayne: My producer nick leone and my partner shadoe valentine would always tell me i need to let the fans know exactly whats on my mind. Let all my emotions and heartaches out for the world to see. Once you conquer the shyness, you good. And thats what i did and its also about having the confidence and knowing that you doing you no matter what the haters say

dom: that's definitely wussup. anything else you wanna say to the people? what do you want people to take away from the mixtape?

bpayne: i want them to take my heart basically and realize that i put my heart into all the shit i give them. No half-assing. as a matter of fact, the last line i say in track 5 "HeartAche" is "You said you wanna see my heart, well you have it now"...thats it right there in a nutshell

dom: yessir! any projects coming up in the near future? collaborations? shoutouts?

bpayne: thinking bout doing a superhero ep behind my mask of heroics [haha] (smash hit from my last mixtape ThA.BingE) and in the works of a video shoot with my boy shadoe valentine for his song im on "Like A Poet" and also from a fan favorite song from LightSwitch...no big planned collabs...and shoutout to my haters...they made this cd what it is!

dom: nice...i really think you and j.a.y. need to collab for at least one track. the results might be illegal [lol]

[end]
check out "lightswitch"

i'm just saying...ya'll might wanna look out for that collabo.

language?

"watch my language? i'm a grown ass man!"

manly men shave chest hair




okay, by now a lot of you have seen the Nivea For Men Active 3 commericials where the product serves as a shampoo, a shower gel and shaving gel. well i couldn't help but pick up on the social undertones in the commercial. it seems that it is now socially acceptable to have a hairless chest and be a manly man at the same time.
follow me: such a phrase exists where someone might suggest a stiff drink because "it'll put some hair on your chest". historically, in that context, a hairy chest equals manhood. next level thinking would suggest that the opposite of that would be feminine and thus often associated with homosexuality.
full circle to present day: things that have been borderline have often been described as metro-sexual, but as you can seen from the commericial, it is now okay to openly discuss with friends that you shave your chest hair.
weird.

tiger woods...the standard

so i'm at the 9-5 the other day and this lady needed help so i helped her out. after it's all said and done, she looks at me and says, "has anyone told you that you look like tiger woods?" i said no, and she was shocked!
later on that same freaking day, a guy comes in and compliments me for being a stand-up guy..."like a young tiger woods".
answer me this: when the heck did we vote tiger woods and "the standard" for black men across america? now i'm not one to point out someone's flaws but we are talking about tiger woods here...i'm just saying.
