*WOW, all I can say is both teams came ready to play. Tonight, the San Francisco Giants hosted the first game of the World Series against the Texas Rangers, and although the Giants got off to a slow start, they still managed to come out on top with a score of 11 points.
The Rangers got off to an early lead scoring twice in the first two innings, but the Giants came back with two scores of their own in the third inning. Both teams remained scoreless in the fourth inning, but suddenly in the fifth inning with the help of ^Juan Uribe's three-run homerun^, the Giants bumped up their score to a commanding 8-2 lead by the end of the fifth inning.
The Rangers answered back with two scores of their own but then remained scorless in the seventh and eighth innings while San Francisco on the other hand scored yet another three runs in the eighth inning. Texas made a final attempt to score in the ninth scoring three runs of their own, but was not enough to continue and thus the Giants won with a final score of 11-7.
GIANTS lead the series 1 - 0.
Game 2 of the Series is tomorrow, and takes place again at AT&T Park (Giants HOME) at 7:57 PM EDT.
*New video from the always DOPE Daft Punk, whom are providing the music for the TRON: Legacy Soundtrack. But seriously where the hell is the MOVIE.!!

*Although this is probably not the most popular World Series ever, those who've actually payed any attention to these two teams would now that they are both TOUGH, and we are gearing up for a good one. Both the Giants and the Rangers arguably both have the best pitching staffs in both the National and American Leagues and also have formidable bullpens as well.
These teams in my opinion have more than proved themselves to get to this point. The Giants have not won a World Series since 1954, and the Rangers have never been in a World Series. Both were considered the underdogs coming into the playoffs but refused to let this determine their performance; the Giants knocked off both MY TEAM and the Phillies to become the NL champs, and the Rangers also had impressive wins over the Rays and last years World Series champs for their AL championship. This years series in no doubt Underdog vs Underdog and both have a lot on the line [Except for Bengie Molina haha].
First game of the Series is tomorrow and will take place at AT&T Park (Giants home). First pitch begins at 7:57 PM EDT.

*So I've gotten most of the things from my list already such as a new belt, more shirts, and now one of the snapbacks that I ordered finally came in yesterday. Still haven't gotten the J's but I think I'll save that for christmas, maybe some CP3's to go with the hat.??
*Speaking of Mr. West, here is his DOPE short film that premiered last night on
Unfortunately the video/music is clean but the explict version can be viewed at Kanye's site.
*PROPS to Yeezy.
*At the Los Angeles premiere of his short film Runaway, Kanye West revealed that he is now preping 5 album covers for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which will all be included with the album itself on November 22. Up top is apparently the first cover.
*Also hit the jump for the tracklists of both Kanye's and KiD CuDi's albums; and also a interview Mr. West had with
MTV on why he changed his album title.
*One of my favorite artists/songwriters of the
moment year. You might/might not have caught some of his work over the summer with high charting songs with B.o.B and Travie McCoy. And also recently has landed Number 1 on the Billboard charts himself with his hit song Just The Way You Are. Since I first heard about him with Nothin' On You with B.o.B, he has been getting constant burn on my ZUNE and his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (which is avaliable now) is INCREDIBLE and should definitely should be checked out.
As a songwriter / producer Bruno Mars and his crew The Smeezingtons are responsible for some familiar/DOPE hits that you've may have heard such as - Wavin' Flag by K'Naan, One Day by Matisyahu, FUCK YOU by Cee-Lo Green, Bow Chicka Wow Wow by Mike Posner, Right Round by Flo-Rida, and countless others.
This dude is seriously DOPE and makes incredible music and should most definitely be worth listening to if you are not already.
*Hit the jump for some more cuts off his new album including the tracklist & MORE.!!
*Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song
*Bruno Mars - Liquor Store Blues (Feat. Damian Marley)

After constantly having to prove himself, it is great to see Cain Velasquez finally getting what he desereves. HARD WORK PAYS OFF..
*Tonight was not only a BIG win for Cain Velasquez, but for an enitre race, Velasquez coming in as the underdog became the first Mexican (-American) Heavyweight champion of the UFC.
Imposing his will right from the beginning of the fight, Cain Velasquez had incredible accuracy. Landing nearly every one of his strikes on Brock Lesner.
Lesner struggled to fight back, seeking takedowns hoping to turn around the fight in his favor, but surely it was not enough. Velasquez was relentless with his attack and ultimately broke down Lesner and used great ground-and-pound, making his face into a bloody scene.
After continuously beating down Lesner, referee Herb Dean had no choice but to stop the fight at around a minute left in the first round and Brown Pride coming off with an impressive win over Brock Lesner and becoming the new Heavyweight champ of the UFC.
In other news, Matt Hamill defeated his former Ultimate Fighter coach Tito Ortiz via split decision. And speaking of Ultimate Fighter, Ultimate Fighter: Season 11 winner Court McGee obtained a win over Ryan Jensen through submission by an arm-triangle choke. And also Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights contender Brendan Schaub defeated Gabriel Gonzonga by unanimous decision.
Also edging out with a big win was Diego Sanchez (finally) with a unanimous decision over Paulo Thiago.
RESULTS: MAIN CARD
Heavyweight Championship bout: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Cain Velasquez WIN - TKO (Punches) at 4:12 of Round 1
Welterweight bout: Jake Shields WIN vs Martin Kampmann Shields - Split decision
Welterweight bout: Diego Sanchez WIN vs Paulo Thiago Sanchez - Unanimous decision
Light Heavyweight bout: Tito Ortiz vs Matt Hamill WIN - Unanimous decision
Heavyweight bout: Brendan Schaub WIN vs Gabriel Gonzaga - Unanimous decision

*Up top is apparently what would've been the cover to Kanye's newest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy after it was recently BANNED in the U.S. (thank god). Kanye expresses his thoughts and reaction in numerous tweets..
*Hit the Jump for another G.O.O.D./DOPE album cover of KiD CuDi's sophomore album Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager...Oh and dont forget to keep up with G.O.O.D. Fridays.
*During his tour at Rock The Bells, Wiz sits down with MTD and talks about his ganja
*If I had a dollar for every time this dude talks about weed I'd be..
"MC's like you is queer, you use somebody's little dick to pierce both your ears" - Eyedea
*DOPE freestyle from Eyedea as he battles
*In honor of Michael "Eyedea" Larson R.I.P.
*Tragic week for Hip-Hop, as one of its brightest up-and-coming underground aritsts was found dead earlier today. Michael "Eyedea" Larson was definitelty not a stranger in the freestyling scene, and is perhaps most notable for freestyling at Scribble Jam 1999.
For those whom are not very familiar, I strongly suggest you check out some of his work including with DJ Abilities as well as Aesop Rock and Sage Francis.
No known cause for his death, but Word of his death came from his mother, Kathy Averill, when she made a Facebook post earlier today after finding him dead. “It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away.”
REST IN PARADISE..
*Eyedea & Abilities - Paradise

808's all over again.?
*New (UNFINISHED) song from Mr. West which is presumably off his upcoming "Hip-Hop" album, Dark Twisted Fantasy?? I'm not going to lie, this sounds like something straight out of 808's & Heartbreak, which is not completely bad but not too good at the very most. But I do see potential, his verse is actually not that bad and sounds like something more or less from his last Hip-Hop album Graduation. And although I am very open minded when it comes to music, and respect artists when they are trying to branch out and do something new, I really hope that Yezzy's newest effort is not completely covered with auto-tune/vocoder and weak instrumentals.
*Also Hit the jump for Kanye's returning cameo as Kenny West in the Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show,, which is actually pretty good..
*Kanye West - Lost In The World (Feat. Bon Iver)
Kanye West once again links up with Bon Iver..
