THE MAIN INGREDIENT @ MJQ 12/19/08



Honestly, last night's MAIN INGREDIENT was pretty cool!! RAZAH, SCIZZAHANDZ, MAJESTIK & SKOOTER all brought some great tunes to the table. The Performances were The SHIT!!! Life The Great showed Us what the Future of HIP HOP is goin to sound like & I Like it!! HEED Showed Us what a LIVE SHOW is supposed to FEEL like, DUKES OF DaVILLE are READY to be the NEXT BIG THING to come out of ATLANTA!! & ZERBY definitely showed Us that You Can't JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!!

When I do these shows, it's an Overwhelming process especially when You're doin it by Yourself... and it just lets me know that I gotta learn to ask for some Help. But when its actually going down and You see the People that are in there that get exactly what we're doing... it makes it WORTH IT!!!

We'll have Pics up very soon... in the meantime log onto The MAIN INGREDIENT on MySpace and let Us know what You thought about Last Night's show and other MAIN INGREDIENT Shows that You've been to. Also we're in the Lab working on the MAIN INGREDIENT Vol. 1 a Compilation of the Best of the Best performances of the First Year of the MAIN INGREDIENT!!!

Stay Tuned

KID CUDI vs. CROOKERS - DAY & NITE VIDJO!!! FINALLY!!! b/w MOS DEF'S PRESIDENTIAL SPEECH!!! Funny!!

So I'm checking out YouTube and I happened to come across a Video for Day & Nite by Kid Cudi and I'm like Fuckin Finally... He Did a Video!!! The song was a banger over the Summer of 08 and even Prompted Wack Ass Jim Jones to try to Remix it. (You Can't improve upon a Good Thing to save Your Career, Dumb Ass) So With out Further Adieu Ladies & Gentleman here is Kid Cudi... And Yes I'll be trying to get Him to ATL for a Show Very Soon!!!

Also, We have a Good friend of Mine, Mr. MOS DEF a.k.a. Black Donte musing on what would change if He Were President of The United States... President-Elect Obama - PAY ATTENTION!!! It's actually a Video Clip from the People a GOOD Magazine for a Video Campaign called appropriately enough "IF I WERE PRESIDENT" (Big Up to The PHARCYDE!!! If You don't know Do Your Homework!! LOL)

PAIN WITHOUT BORDERS... Pay Attention!!!

This is perhaps the most thought provoking and incredible thing I've seen in a long while... This film was made for a french N.G.O called "Pain without Borders/ Douleurs sans frontières". The campaign has started in France the 20th October for the global day against pain. The goal of this campaign is to increase the public awareness to "Pain" in its various forms and then have enough signatures (petition on line) to give the possibility to the french government to present a resolution at the U.N before the end of 2008. In this film you see a young boy walking and facing in life hard and painfull situations : - loss of his mother - earthquake, destruction of his hometown - war - psychological pain - injury Information regarding this commercial :






Title : Arrêtons la douleur / Stop the Pain
Duration : 63 sec
Directors : Philippe GAMER and Fred REMUZAT
Production and postproduction : SPACE PATROL
Agency : TBWA MAP (FRANCE)
Client : Douleurs Sans Frontières / Pain without Borders
