Cadence of Raw Produce
· best albums
DM & Jemini : Ghetto Pop Life
Why? Who knew Jemini was gonna come back like that. Makes you wonder how it might have been if "Scars And Pain" had seen a proper release.
· albums I listened to
I spent the rest of the damn year listening to Al Green albums. Why? Come on man. Al Green!
· best songs
Quite Nyce : Nyce Like That / You Don't Know Me / A Soul Once Cried 12"
Why? This one's personal. This is my first solo production (other than my own material) to be released, so it was significant to me. Add in Mr. Nyce's skills on the mic, Soul Searchers and D-Tension rounding out the production lineup and a cameo from Breez Evahflowin' and you have a dope 12".
· best beats
- Akrobatik : The Hand That Rocks The Cradle
produced by Edan
- Gang Starr : Skillz
· best producers
Jon Doe
Why? I just made $5000.00 just for saying that. Catch me at a show and I'll tell you who I really picked
· best emcee / lyrics
- emcees: no one stepped it up this year like MF Doom. He was everywhere!
- lyrics: I was really feeling "Hellohihey" by the Lifesavas; just a good creative song

Once again, gotta give it to DM and Jemini
· favorite labels
two way tie between Day By Day and Female Fun
Why? Look on the back of my records
· biggest surprise
the death of Art Carney (Norton from the Honeymooners)
Why? I thought he died years ago
· biggest disappointment
George W. Bush still in office
Why? Shouldn't he be in jail?
· books I read
I read a lot of books about first-time home-buying
Why? At the time, I had a landlord
· movies I saw
you heard it hear first: "School of Rock" will sweep the Oscars. No, wait, Mandy Moore had something out too, right? I don't know man, I used to like movies a lot more
· websites I visited
Umm. Urbansmarts. Yeah, yeah Urbansmarts. Dope site. Dope! There I said it. Now will you post my answers?
· foods I ate
I think it was a potato chip. It had some grit on it from being under the sofa cushion for so long so I can't really be sure, but it was still salty, so that was good.

G.W. Bush falls on his ass while trying to ride a Segway scooter on camera!

· hip hop in 2004 will be...
to coin a phrase: Cadence-ly
· my new years resolutions
gain weight, start smoking, get less exercise, stop doing any hobbies and be less friendly to people. We're only on this earth for a limited time. It's never too late to start making your mark
