MP3: Hollywood FLOSS - "Champion Sh!t" Ft. Naledge (of Kidz In The Hall)
Courtesy Audible Treats.
When we last left Hollywood FLOSS, he was dropping his street album, One Fan At A Time for free download. The album is a testament to FLOSS’ work ethic - "I will work hard to earn your attention, one fan at a time, no matter how long it takes." - he remarked upon the release of the project, and keeping with that mantra, FLOSS is releasing the latest single from One Fan At A Time, the triumphant anthem, "Champion SH!t."
"The inspiration for the song is beating the odds and overcoming any trials that might get in the way of your dreams," explains the Houston emcee. To keep the creation process organic, FLOSS chose a limited guest list to collaborate with on the album, and on this song he called on Naledge from the Chicago-based crew Kidz in the Hall to contribute a verse. "Naledge stepped in and took the song to the next level," says FLOSS. The beat came from T.I.M.E., also from Chicago. The resulting track is one that declares FLOSS' message loud and clear: “Go hard or Go home; play to a higher level."
J-Zone Speaks on How Rap Got Him Robbed for Fake Jewels

Here's another excerpt from Root for the Villain: Rap, Bullsh*t, and a Celebration of Failure, my forthcoming collection of rants, memoirs, and think pieces.
We all f*cked up as teenagers. Bad tattoos, piercings, Zima hangovers (don't be bourgeois and front like you didn't drink that 7UP-looking sh*t liquor), etc. I avoided the aforementioned pitfalls, but rap music drove my adolescent express train to debauchery. Getting beaten to a pulp by a 6'1" monster of a girl (a few times a week over the course of two years), jumped for a $14 faux gold chain, and a completely dysfunctional introduction to the ins and outs of sex all played a part in a good amount of embarrassment, school detention, and all out recklessness. I'm still f*cked up today, and it's all rap music's fault. Click the link below to read (and see my vicious hi-top fade haircut).
If you missed the first excerpt from my book (a dissertation on the "Gadget Ho"), click here. All of this incessant texting / "LOL" ing and emoticon-ing has sent pay phone pimpin the way of the pterodactyl and it makes me very upset.
More memoirs, social commentary, and curmudgeonly rants from the book coming soon. Pre-orders for the book (on Amazon, Create Space, or directly from me with the limited cassette-only audiobook) will start up in about two weeks.
