The New Dork – Entrepreneur State of Mind | Mediafire

Catch me up in TechCrunch, right on the homepage
Hell, I’m on Gizmodo, in a photo ’bout a phone craze
And I’m up in Mashable, weekend trip to New York..
Bar Pitti, 1OAK, parties full of New Dorks
Now I’m pitchin’ business plans, from the backs of napkins

Story of my life. Thanks to Success Jae for sending this through.

J. Cole came out and joined Jay-Z for their collabo when The BP3 Tour swung through J. Cole’s home state on Sunday night at the Greensboro Coliseum.

And could he be a star? Shouts to Ib for sending the footage.

Unsung Hero

Although Kanye was visibly missing from The Grammy’s last night, his mentor was there to put on for their city. Among all the fuckery I’ve read online today, the one thing I didn’t see was the legendary No I.D. getting the recognition he deserved for the work he put in this year. He not only took home a statue for his production on “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune),” but two more as well for the co-production of “Run This Town.” The world is anxious to see what he’s capable of doing in 2010.

Here’s the BP3 promotional poster they use in New Zealand. The funny thing is it’s dropping on Sept. 14th there, 3 days later than it is here.

But even a broken clock is right at least two times a day

Pic from The Corner. I know good help is hard to find Jay, so if you need someone new to carry your weed print up posters, I can do that.
