9th Wonder's mind has always operated on its own level and it's so intriguing to see what he cooks up given how unique the end result usually is.

When you're talking about Ridley Scott movies, and I'm assuming this is right after your home sock puppet show, it becomes immediately apparent that he's a rangy English bastard.

The iPod Shuffle – “Do You Feel Me (Remix)”

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/why-anthony-hamiltons-second-lp-is-one-of-the-most-underrated-this-decade"> I've never been a movie buff, so taking my word where American Gangster ranks amongst Denzel's best work should come with a grain of salt. However, anytime a director can create an enjoyable film about drug dealing with an A-List actor, that's a win-win in my book. Sitting in the movie theater during the Fall of 2007, I remember being impressed by how "old" the movie felt and looked. It successfully created the ambiance of being shot during the 1970s and <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/anthony-hamilton">Anthony Hamilton's</a> soulful "Do You Feel Me" had me typing a text message to myself so I could remember to look it up once I returned to my apartment later that night.

Hello Brooklyn

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/hello-brooklyn-baby-baby"> Nothing earth-shattering but these types of vids always intrigue because of each individual's interpretation. This clip by Greg Solenström nails it by combining stills of Brooklyn with the lyrics to Jay's borough dedication. Quite helpful because I just now noticed the Nets reference. There's also <a href="http://vimeo.com/10900459">a "making of" clip</a> as well, if you're interested.

Shock, disbelief, hysteria, peturpitudenousness - these are just some of the words that describe my reaction to today's news that Hollywood may use the words "based on a true story" loosely.
