Damn That's some Real Talk! - Control of the Conn

Relationships can be compared to a lot of things. Tug of war, Pool, etc. Have you ever thought of comparing it to Crimson Tide? In the movie Crimson Tide Denzel Washington was in control of the submarine, (thus in control of the " Conn ') But Gene Hackman was the Captain and some Crew thought it would be better if Hackman was in Control of the Conn. So a divide and subsequent small war ensued on the ship. Blah Blah Blah The point is instead of really working together in a relationship, we all vie for Control of the Conn. Nobody wants to play #2, so everyone wants to be the boss. We will not stop until we have control of the conn. Fearing the possibility of hurt or disappointment, we never allow someone else partial/full control of the relationship we are both involved in. I bet it makes a whole lot more sense now! If not, See Crimson Tide.

Focus: Real T@lk - Mo Better Mixtape

If you never heard of Real T@lk, be ashamed. (I was at first but I don't like living in the past.) He's an artist hailing from Peoria, now repping Chicago-land by way of Maywood, he shot his mixtape over and before I blessed you with it I had to see what it was about. Lyrically this man is insane, he gives off a Kweli, Mos Def feel. Truthfully he sounds more poet than rapper. Anyway he is just what we look for over here at O4R. Good, Real Music. Download The Mo Better Mixtape by clicking on the Mixtape Cover at the bottom of the Page. Hit him up at one of these variety of links and tell the brother if you feeling him or not.

Whats the Best Chicago anthem?

While riding the train I came to a realization. Months ago while in search of something new to listen to, I stopped listening to a lot of mainstream artist (with an exception of a few) and started listening to more Chicago underground Artist. Naturally all artist love to rep where they come from and Chicago is no different. Since this morning I've been unable to stop listening to all the music I recently added to my new Mp3 player but the ones about Chicago stick out the most. A few weeks ago I was @ my dude home and like always we politic bullshit talk money, music, women and Just-pay said "No Chicago song is F*cking with Crown of he Midwest". At the time we argued for a nice minute about our difference in opinion. I now give you the chance to prove me right or wrong. Crown of the Midwest is classic but their are some true gems to choose from.  I'll give you three Selections and you make your own decision. JustPay - Crown of
