shoop, shoop....

nah, but really,

Random feat. Naledge - Exhale - Produced by Young B and Doug Funny
Scratches by DJ Akshun

the story:

This song transformed right before my eyes. It started out as a favor to a very good friend of mine. Doug Funny is a dope producer out of Ann Arbor, MI, who hit me up one day and asked me about us collaborating in the future. I agreed, so we started working. Doug asked me which artists I liked, and made an effort to track them down. He asked me about working with Naledge, and I was all for it, as a big fan of the Kidz in the Hall album. Now, fast forward, and they're bigger than ever, touring the world, performing at Rock the Bells, getting on Madden 09, and more…well deserved, IMO.

A few tracks in, the idea for the Mega Ran album hit me, so I had to abandon ship on Mr. Funny's collaboration plans. Anyway, the song was just 2 verses, me and Na just spittin', no real concept. I wanted to get Reef on it as well, but I think he was out of town...But when I called DF to get a mix of the beat for me to use it on The 8th Day, he didn't have it.
So, the beat had to it did, the song got smoother, and smoother....Enter DN3, who found a track that he had been sitting on forever (he always keeps stuff from me for situations like this), and he formatted it to fit the song. I liked it..but truthfully I didn't love it. I kept looking, deadlines looming...

Enter Young B, a talented cat from Australia that I met through DJ Speek Greene, DJ for Jaz-O, and NYOil's executive producer. It fit like a glove. I got DJ Akshun, my Philly homie, to lay down some scratching, and the rest is history. Funny story is that Naledge went to Penn, and I went to Penn State…it's like it was kinda destined to be...well not really. And trust, the project with Doug Funny (no title yet, I'm thinking about "Funny, in a Random Kinda Way") will happen one day.
The song is toward the end of the album, expressing the joy at hip-hop's new beginning, while stressing creativity and lyricism...ironically, it's the same sample as "Hip Hop Hooray," and that wasn't all that coincidental when you think about it.

enjoy, and gimme your thoughts.

Byc moze powinienes zastanowic sie nad pozycjonowaniem strony? [url=]pozycjonowanie stron[/url] Pozycjonowanie to umieszczanie jej wysoko w wynikach wyszukiwarek dzieki stosowaniu pewnego rodzaju zabiegow. Jeszcze do niedawna najlatwiejszym sposobem pozycjonowania bylo umieszczanie w tekscie, zamieszczonym na stronie, slow i fraz kluczowych [url=]pozycjonowanie[/url]..

Byly i sa one latwe do odnalezienia dla tzw. robotow wyszukiwarek. Slowa takie najczesciej wyodrebnia sie z tekstu za pomoca pogrubienia lub podkreslenia po to, aby staly sie jeszcze bardziej widoczne. Gdy wiec dane haslo zostanie wpisane [url=]pozycjonowanie[/url] w wyszukiwarce a jest dobrze wyeksponowane na stronie to istnieje duza szansa, ze strona ta pojawi sie gdzies na poczatkowej liscie wynikow wyszukiwania.
Pozycjonowanie to metoda, dla ktorej wazne sa wewnetrzne linki, [url=]pozycjonowanie[/url] optymalizowanie tresci i inne. Strona musi byc, bowiem zauwazana przez wyszukiwarki, ale jednoczesnie tez przez ludzi.

Musi zachecac trescia i wygladem do jej otwarcia i odwiedzenia.
Pozycjonowanie umozliwia, co prawda jej widocznosc [url=]pozycjonowanie[/url], ale to jeszcze nie znaczy, ze krotki tekst ze strony, pojawiajacy sie razem z wyszukana fraza, bedzie na tyle ciekawy i przejrzysty, ze uzytkownik szukajacy wiadomosci na dany temat [url=]pozycjonowanie stron[/url] otworzy akurat ten link. Korzystanie z wyszukiwarek bardzo pomaga w zdobywaniu informacji, dlatego dla kazdego uzytkownika wazne jest, aby, na pierwszych stronach otrzymanych wynikow, [url=]pozycjonowanie[/url] wyswietlaly sie te najbardziej rzetelne, kompetentne i sprawdzone.
