T.I. – "On Top Of The World" ft. B.o.B., Kanye West and "Hunt Em Down" ft. Lil Wayne


Here are a couple tracks off the A Year & A Day mixtape featuring some unreleased T.I. If that Kanye verse from “On Top Of The World” sounds familiar, then you’ve probably heard “Kinda Like A Big Deal”. I don’t know why T.I. didn’t keep it, but whatever, it fits nicely with the Clipse.

P&P Highly Recommended (The First)


As an apology for not being around so often (lately and in the future), I offer you this post.

Most of the time I throw up new music pretty carelessly. I’ve thought about cutting back on the posts, and instead focusing on quality writing, reviews, and journalistic stories that involve research, wit, and effort. I always resort to short posts filled with nonsense and littered with profanity. Hope you like it!

Taste is a matter of opinion, so sometimes it’s better to just give you as much as I can and let you decide what you want and what you don’t. I try to focus on music that is either really good or really relevant (when a new Black Eyed Peas song comes out, I post it, burn it to a CD, pour Everclear and lighter fluid on it, and set it on fire while performing a ritualistic dance.) I don’t like it, but I think it’s worth checking out. I think this is best for music fiends like myself who want to get a little taste of everything that comes out, but I know it can be overwhelming for people who like to check out new music every now and then. If you come to P&P every week or so, it’s probably a big headache trying to check everything you missed.

The “best of the week” post is convenient, but ends up being a really tedious task. At the end of the week, a lot of the “best” songs have been taken down, and the line between “best” and “most popular” gets really blurry to a blogger trying to balance quality and hits. So maybe this “best of” post is going to turn into something more like this.

This post is meant to give you some insight into what I’m listening to, what I like, and what I suggest. So burn that shit to a CD and call it Pigeon Shit. When I posted this, all the links were good. So get it fast, because I’m sure some of them will be deaded soon. Here we go.
