23 years ago Scarface released Hand of the Dead Body as the first single to his third studio album, The Diary. Produced by N.O. Joe and Scarface, the single features Ice Cube chilling at a table with Scarface as the press push their agenda on him, questions to feed to news makers and media machine but Scarface and Cube, rocking his afro bust back with some consciousness and Afrocentric knowledge, Devin The Dude provides vocals for the hook. Salute to @brothermob, @icecube and @devindude420 for their impacts in Rap and Hip-Hop.

Мой характер - как забор с напряжением.
Если ты сильный - ты заскочишь на него. И пусть шарахнет током, но ты окажешься на другой стороне. И увидишь и солнышко, и полянку с единорогами, и прекрасных нимф у озерца.
А если ты трусливая падаль, разворачивайся, и беги обратно. Не прыгай и не пытайся узнать суть.
8/10 #tendaymoviechallenge "SCARFACE"
It was January 2002 when I arrived @strasberginstituteny where I smashed head on into a cultural shock. Receiving a crash course in American acting history whilst immersing in the darkest limbos of sense memory.
I made friends from Rio De Janeiro, Canarsie, Israel, Tanzania and Sicily. We munched on New York's culinary diversities while mimicking our heroes with our mouths still full.
And here was this beautiful specimen of a man. Charming, menacing and full of life. I contemplated ever since: how can I define good acting? Is it either the drop of emotion that trickles through a wall of layered oppression on a dessert floor or is it the absolute freedom to express one's feelings like a roaring waterfall.
Either way, like Tony Montana with his American dream, like Strasberg's quote on his tombstone... we came to the theatre on the wings of a dream.
Lets keep on flying "Sensation Seekers"~!! I nominate @lucabianchi

AWAR - Limited Edition 7" Vinyl
Bricks Like 86 feat. Styles P & Jadakiss b/w The 87 Getback.
AWAR’s lead single from his upcoming album, Spoils of War. The track is titled “Bricks Like ’86” and features 2/3 of The Lox, Styles P. and Jadakiss. It will be available on a coke white 7” and have a non-album cut titled “87 Getback” on the B-side. Both joints are produced by the in-demand beat monster Vanderslice (who AWAR also has a duo with). It should be obvious from the titles, these companion tracks are a throwback to the Coke era, when the rise of crack first made millionaires out of street hustlers.
