For those of you that haven’t heard of Grind Time, or didn’t see our previous post on them, it’s The World’s #1 Rap Battle League started by emcee’s for emcee’s. I’ve been a huge fan of Grind Time, and a lot of the rappers involved for as long as I’ve known about the league, and certain battlers based on performances prior to the league’s formation. When I first heard about Battle Of LA 3, I knew I had to be there, and I waited impatiently for a few months till that day finally came. The event, better known as “BOLA 3” was held on New Years Eve at The Airliner, in Los Angeles, and I couldn’t think of a better way for me to have brought in 2010 than being at this event. It was my first time at a Grind Time event, and it was easily one of the funnest nights of my life, a jam packed night of entertainment from start to finish! Grind Time has single-handedly taken the battle scene to new heights, and I look forward to another big year from them. Much love to @LushOne, and everyone else involved in making this event happen! I hope they hold more events in Los Angeles, cause I will definitely be there every time!
I will keep this post updated with links to each battle as they come out, stay tuned!

I’m a strong believer that “Mixtapes Are The New Albums“, and Laws – 4:57 PM definitely strengthens my feelings on that statement. This new mixtape from Laws has solid original production (which includes J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, 9th Wonder, & DJ Khalil), great lyrics, dope hooks, and a variety of styles that blend together to make some great hip hop music. Laws is an extremely talented artist that has been paying his dues in hip hop, and is currently signed to J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League/Asylum/Warner Bros. I downloaded the cd when I saw him post it on a message board we both post at, and the last thing I expected to hear on it was the line below…..
“We’ll be alright, play your cards right you’ll be standin in some new clothes… cause I got them KARMALOOP CODES” – Laws on Vintage Futuristic 2
My favorite tracks from 4:57 PM are Vintage Futuristic 2, My Chick, This Is Me, Wall to Wall, Want It All, Murder, and Hold You Down!

Unfortunately, I never got into the MTV show “Jersey Shore“, or it’s safer to say, I just never made the effort to watch it, aside from one random episode. I will certainly take the time to watch it from the beginning one of these days. Now, whether or not you’ve seen the show, you’ve definitely heard about it one way or another. The cast of Jersey Shore recently signed on for a second season, so they aren’t going away anytime soon.
The Snookie Tee by Klothing Liberation Project, which reads “I Did It All For The Snookie” is a limited edition item available on Karmaloop. You can’t use any Karmaloop Discount Codes on limited edition items, but if you like the shirt, I wouldn’t wait to long to purchase it, cause this could sell out fast!
The latest brand addition to Karmaloop, is DUMB! They bring unique, colorful accessories that will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. So whether you’re looking for a new watch, backpack, or flip sunglasses, this is definitely a brand to look out for. Their stuff is affordable, and dope, so get yourself some DUMB today! Don’t forget, save even more with the Karmaloop Promo Codes available on our homepage at anytime, it would be DUMB, not to!
A big shoutout to @MsSkyeTwittzYa for showing us love on her latest video, where she does a haul showing her latest purchases from Karmaloop, and tells her viewers where to save, Karmaloop Codes, at the end of the video! With over 9,000 subscribers, and almost 90 videos on her Youtube Channel 2DoDat8, she is definitely no beginner when it comes to vlogging about make up, fashion, hair, and more. Her channel is undoubtedly a must subscribe for all females out there with similar interests. She is also cute as hell for all our male visitors that want to see more of her!
