HELLO HELLO HEELLLLOOOO!!!!!
whats up people it is I. Picasso, Premo, Pico, THE premiere poet, or whatever else you people call me. lol I just wanted to take the time out and THANK everyone who comes by the blog every now an then, and those who are weekly visitors! I must say I am flattered. 😀 BUT!!! guess what! i got some news….. (drumroll!) well.. then again maybe its not “news” but or less a P.S.A….
For those who have been apart of The society since day one, you know the overall message and purpose of the group. But if your new to the society, we are an organization of artists that just love to constantly create, and show appreciation for the creative.(In simpler terms.)
anywho, back to the subject at hand. The blog is going into its 2nd year (hence the 2.0) and I think I want to take the society into a different direction. I want to keep the same focus and purpose but I also want to incorporate more of a “variety” to say the least. sooo far the society has showed HUGE love and appreciation for artists, poets, writers, rappers, MC’s, and photographers…. within the next year. I want to add more. I want to have that and then some! I love ALL my poets the constatly contribute thier work to the society, but…. I would love to see more of the fashion designers, interior designers, graphic designers, sketch artists, graffiti artists, etc. basically I want the blog to take a more Artistic and more Passionate approach to everythig now.
also, I want to also make this blog more personal. for me. Now that I dont use facebook anymore, (I guess) its a good idea to make “ME” more accesible to the world… I HOPE this is a good idea. the rise of blogging is at an all time high, and I dont really want to be railroaded into a catagory. (with that being said) I also want to say that: THIS IS NOT A HIP HOP BLOG! (i repeat) THIS IS NOT A HIP HOP BLOG! soooo I appreciate the emails for mixtapes to be posted, trust I really do, but thats not ALL that the society is about. hit up my man 100-grand Rasheed @ www.datsdope.blogspot.com for that type of exposure.
BUT! again back to what this is about!
its a new day! the blog is a year old, going on two and its time to hit the REFRESH button. we got a NEW team, and NEW focus, and a NEW outlook on life! 😀
soo with THAT being said I want to introduce the new leaders of the society….!!!! (**= new)

Yet again, my boredom pays off…(well @least I think it does) but either way I still want to share this with you guys…I came across this mixtape about 3 weeks ago but havent had the chance to listen too until now. I think its pretty cool. mos def just something to listen too…I wouldnt really call it a banger or “dope” like I always say but its cool…a real chill joint…
DJ Benzi & Don Cannon present one of the best mixtapes of 2009 (so far, obviously). This shit definitely gets a Shake stamp of approval. Mike Posner and The Brain Trust do a great job on fusing pop/R&B/hip hop. Benzi on the mixing, Cannon on the hosting and guest spots from Big Sean, Donnis, Jackie Chain & Eric Holljes.
DOPENESS SCORE: 7.7/10
