Project Mayhem – Lo Sweatas

snow-beach-label.jpg

I’ve never heard anything else from these cats, but anybody who prays at the altar of Ralph is cool with me.

Project Mayhem – Lo Sweatas

On a related note, the L.A. Times spoke with the homey 88-Keys about his new album and fanatical ‘Lo obsession.

And finally, if the fashion fundamentalism of ‘Lo heads leaves you scratching your head, hit the jump and peep the trailer to the long delayed ‘Lo Life’s documentary for some history. Those guys are the reason you rock that horsey shirt in the summer.

    [...] One more in the POLO chamber before the year is out.  Hopefully that Lo Life documentary will make it to the small or the big screen in the ‘09 and the story will finally be told.  In the meantime this joint is on point in regards to how it illustrates our love affair with all things Ralph Lauren.

  22. Bronx bad boy Says:

    Track is decent but the real meyhem reppin lo-lifes is Meyhem Lauren from Queens he hosted the last 9 J-Love mix tapes and sun is a beast! I met duke recently on the ave sun is real humble. peep the joints and flics on http://www.myspace.com/meyhem

  23. QueensGettheMoney Says:

    These niggas need to reevaluate their lives. Talking heavy bout Lo and dressing like Pharrel?!! Weak flows, weak way to chop that sample. Meyhem Lauren is putting in REAL work on the rhyme tip, rhyming alongside vets and holding the crown…official Lo rocka, head to toe dipped. “MEYHEM LAUREN, FUCK YOU THINK THAT MEANS? AT ONE TIME I PROLLY HAD THE MOST POLO IN QUEENS!” Acknowlege the greatness niggas.

  26. LoLife4life Says:

    WTF?!?!?!?! The real Meyhem is from QUEENS, NY. I don’t know who these cats are, but that track is garbage. The real Meyhem is a beast. He’s J-Love’s artist and has trax with real LO-LIFES like Thirstin Howl 3rd, Bags, Rack, etc. Meyhem is a Lo-life. These dudes just emulate them. At the end of the day, this is funny……..Real Lo-Lifes stand up.

  27. go ill hitta Says:

    fuck all you weak ass niggas talkin about ya favorite nigga from ya hood!! The song is about polo and project mayhem rock mad lo, the niggas was payin homage to lo-lifes and talkin about what the really do. Niggas know the get real tough and disrespectful behind a keyboard and by the way I got a lot of j-love shit and never heard of ya man(just the truth)

  28. for real Says:

    fla$h-lauren you sound like a fuckin fool. Hats off to the real lo heads but you sound like one of them mad rapper hatin bitches. By the way the track is original pussy!

  29. Chitownhunny Says:

    these dudes are garbage they look like a bunch of clowns i neva seen them rockin lo yet they’re dick riding the LO-LIFES…what’s that about?
    They look like they need to be a reggae band looking like a bunch of dirty ass Jamaican niggas (no offense to Jamaicans but they look like they should be rocking wit TOK or something lol)

    How can you get mad at these niggas for biggin up Meyhem when they obviously never heard of ya???? And from what i saw on the links he is a hell of a lot better than these dudes. People are gonna comment on who they know and not who you think they should know and for the record the track is weak and the group is garbage…stop dick ridin!

  30. fla$h-lauren Says:

    ayo for real fall tha fuck back i aint no internet nikka be easy aight when u when u been rockin since 87 and reppin that nyc shit u can say somethin otha than that shut ya ras clot pussy hole idiot boi

  31. goillorgohome Says:

    The problem is not that no one has heard of Project Mayhem, its that no one has heard of the guy from Queens and he is upset. The Chicago Hater is obviously crazy!!!!! This song is good!!!!

  32. TheSilencer Says:

    I find it funny how dude’s keep talking shit on this site…it is what it is these Project Mayhem niggas wanna do their thing, so be it…but as for the nigga Meyhem Lauren, he’s definitely known…not just in NY, he’s been on mad J-Love cd’s and anyone who listens to J-Love knows that nigga cuz he hosted mad mixtapes and is featured on a bunch more….Nigga did songs with M.O.P., Kool G Rap, Ghostface…. I think niggas is clearly playin themselves saying they don’t know who he is…if anyone knows anything about Lo, you know that this nigga is a LO-LIFE and clearly friends with Thirstin…the same nigga these Project Mayhem dudes took their beat from….anyone find that funny????

    I’m not knocking those niggas they’re alright but if everyone who is on here talking shit would do some research they wouldn’t be sitting up here sounding like a bunch of fools…

    goillorgohome aka go ill hitta i’m sure that nigga ain’t even worried about this site or what niggas have to say about him or Project Mayhem so how you know he’s upset????

    Whether you wanna listen to Project Mayhem or Meyhem or both all ya niggas need to stop taking this shit so personal and speaking for the niggas like ya’ll are them i’m sure none of them are worried about what we have to say and more focused on making their music than all this silly ranting and raving back and forth like a bunch of school kids! Why are niggas catchin beef on the site like it’s that serious???????

  33. QueensGettheMoney Says:

    go illa hitta:”i got mad j-love shit and never heard of this kid”…come on duke. He put out a double LP with J-Love featuring some of the greatest rappers to ever touch a mic. I don’t think credible hip hop sites like http://www.unkut.com/category/bootleg/newest-latest/ would be wasting their time with someone they never heard of….check the fly shit dunny.

  34. fla$h-lauren Says:

The song was meant to spark the flames of what niggas been doin and continue to do. All that other shit sounds gay from where I sit. Niggas talk shit and never even been to the CHI!! Mayhem makes moves in NEW YORK. GET IN TUNE
