· favorite labels
- Stones Throw
- Def Jam

- Sure Shot Records
· biggest surprise
- working with Dom Pacino aka PR Terrorist
- that "Venomous Villains" record
- that the MAD vs. NPR double EP didn't drop yet
- Theodore Unit putting out such a solid record
- Lloyd Banks turning into hot garbage
- El-P's "Collecting the Kid" not being as good as "Little Johnny From The Hospital"
- Jay-Z and R.Kelly / Jay-Z vs. Linkin Park: my question is why? why?
- this kid Belief just lacing Vordul's album (I am now a Believer)
- De La Soul dropping a sick record
· biggest disappointment
- MAD vs NPR not dropping
- Lloyd Banks album
- the Beastie Boys record
- Ol' Dirty (most original mc ever!)
- the fact that "MM Food" wasn't better than or even close to "Madvillainy" (although it's still good)
· books I read
- The Sandman comics (again)
- Edward Said "Orientalism"
· movies I saw
a lot. "City of God" and "Fog of War" stand out the most though
· websites I visited
- craigslistnyc.com
- urbansmarts.com
- daybydayent.com
- coolehmag.com
· foods I ate
lots of ribs and late night delivery
· things that made me smile
- reading some positive reviews of my work
- watermelon haze
- MF Grimm and MF Doom on stage together (athough they didn't rhyme together, it was cool to see)
· things that made me go hmm
accusations that Bush brought down the towers himself or as part of a covert op by a shadow government. Interesting theories but I dont buy it. America doesnt need to invent animosity, it's out there and for good reasons. I could be wrong though.
· things that made me cringe
Bill O'Reilly: what a pitifully small man
· best moment(s) of 2004
when all the manufactured copies of "The Chalice" showed up at the label (but before I saw the typos... haha)
· worst moment(s) of 2004
my people's dying, family and friends
· what I'd like to see in 2005
- this Terror Firma album drop on time and us all to do a really dope show
- new GZA/Genius
- new David Banner
- new GM Grimm
- new Cannibal Ox
- new Aesop Rock
- new Outkast (together...yeah, not likely)
- new Monsta Island Czars LP
- the Mighty Joe record
- all my peoples out of prison
· what I don't want to see in 2005
half-steppin' by me or anyone else I build with
· hip hop in 2005 will be...
some good music just like always and some bad music just like always
· my new years resolutions
- live to see another new years and speak on everything I see, every injustice I can
- stay the fuck from Po-Lice
