We put the whole project together in one weekend

With features by Pace Won, Rah Digga, DU, Yah Yah and Young Zee's son
Krash Battle, "One Crazy Weekend" is sure to excite hardcore hip hop fans.
Zee uses his signature off the wall, inappropriate style but somehow
still comes across as the cool likable guy that he is.  I contributed my
'classic' beats that people know me for from albums like "The Only
Color That Matters is Green".  It makes a great combination.

One Crazy Weekend only $8.99 on Amazon.com!

Thank you as always
for the support, I do this
thing complete independently
and I appreciate every bit of support
you all give me.  Thanks again,  -Mr. Green

@AdamsWorldBlog Weekly 8/6 - Takin It Easy


Adam's World Weekly 8/6 - Takin It Easy

Welcome to the new week everyone. I actually took it easy this past weekend. Every once in a while that's a good idea, and when it's disgustingly hot and humid out, and the option to pass out in front of an air conditioner is available, I say go for it! Some other things I'm hoping you'll go for include this week's Pop Shots, which is an extended version because there was a ton of news this past week. This week's update also has an interview with the team behind the musicals Bayside! The UnMusical! and JonBenet Ramsey Murder Mystery Theater!!!, as well as a photo album from the most recent Enter The Cypher, and a great Vid Pick from longtime B-Listers Cavalier and Spills.

If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and enjoy!


Pop Shots - Long Strange Trips


Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Beyonce’s major ego trip, to Cee Lo Green moving up a company’s corporate ladder, to Snoop Dogg not booking any flights to Norway anytime soon, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.

Medium Face - Going From Bayside High to JonBenet Ramsey


Collectively, the New York City comedy trio of Bob and Tobly McSmith, and Mary Crosbie (pictured R to L), go by the name Medium Face, but thanks to their offbeat, pop culture-centric, musicals most of the faces they’ve seen as of late have been smiling ones. Earlier this year they put on Bayside! The UnMusical!, which was a send up of Saved By The Bell that included a pregnant Kelly, and homosexual Slater, and last week they debuted their latest work, JonBenet Ramsey: Murder Mystery Theater!!!

With topics and storylines such as those it’s no surprise that when it comes to comedy, Bob McSmith says “everything has to be on the table.”

Having seen successful initial runs of both their shows, and Bayside! The UnMusical! getting a second run in 2012 starting September 18th, the Medium Face trio are a comedy team on the rise. This week I sat down with them to find out about the intricacies of working with pop culture related topics, where their inspiration comes from, and what kind of jokes don’t go over well. The team also revealed the worst idea they’ve ever had, and what Queen Latifah has to do with it.

Author Kevon L. Gulley Presents Just Like Compton

Courtesy Todd Davis.

August 06, 2012 -- Just Like Compton, a must read indie-urban novel, gives readers a strikingly real portrayal of gang life in Los Angeles, California. Nothing is off limits or too graphic when it comes to telling it like it is for this first time author, who admits that for his first novel he drew a lot from his own personal life for readers to experience.

According to the L.A. Sentinel, Just Like Compton is..."A fictional novel, based on true events, where the names have been changed to protect the guilty. Just Like Compton has the grit of Monster Cody's Monster, the intrigue and mystery of a James Patterson novel, complete with the kind of sex scenes that rival acclaimed author Zane."

For those who have ever wondered about what goes on in the head of those who "bang," or what it's like to do time in a California prison as a Black man today, Just Like Compton does an incredible job of breaking down the inexplicable violence, revenge, betrayal, racism, love and loyalty to color, neighborhood block and gang family, that many have a hard time understanding. Just Like Compton is the perfect blend of real life, straight up with no chaser, complete with baby mama drama, a chick on the side drama, hood drama and the drama behind the walls.
