What in the world made this guy think this dance up?  It’s hilarious yet turrible at the same time.

Charles Barkley does not approve and neither does ATI:

Happy Monday errbody. I know that it’s harder for us to find happiness on Monday than it is for Serena William’s swimsuit to survive her butt cheeks…but I’ve got something to at least keep us afloat. This Monday’s Passion remedy comes in the form of some of the most soulful cats to ever pick up a microphone. Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Daryl Hall, and John Oates were bringin’ the heat back in the 80s. Some of our lighter friends, myself included, may damn well have been conceived to their smooth grooves. I know these old CCAs guys don’t look it, but they influenced some R&B legends including the late great Michael Jackson.

The first jam is by Mr. Loggins. Now Kenny’s decadence can certainly be called into question when he went in on the footloose soundtrack, or when his song was the theme for the Top Gun volleyball scene…but “This is it” is a smooth track that features our boy Michael McDonald on the background vocals. The song is pretty powerful, Kenny is basically breaking it down to his woman. Sounds like they’ve been havin’ some trouble…and it’s at that pivotal point where you need to let each other go, or stand up and fight. Pay attention to the 1:10 mark where ish gets real. Enjoy…

Chuch, and this video was posted by TheEbonyLounge, “where the music is ALL LOVE”

Our next artist is white in the same way that Larry Bird was white. They just did things like they should be brothers. You may recognize Michael McDonald from those turrible MCI commercials where he was singing the Motown hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. This dude played with several 70s/80s groups like the Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, and of course our boy Kenny Loggins. This jam, entitled “I keep forgettin'” is another classic story about how Mike can’t get his ex out of his mind. He sees her out, she’s lookin good, and he keeps forgetting how she kicked his ass to the curb. Anyway, you’ll definitely recognize the beat to this song.

For a synopsis of the song “Regulators” which featured this beat and was made popular by Warren G and Nate Dogg, please see Hotdogs Anderson’s post from a couple weeks back.

The last song I got for ya’ll is by the always popular Hall and Oates. I don’t understand why people hate on these two dudes, they were always bringing heat and really stood the test of time. Sure they looked decadent as the day is long, but their music spoke for itself. This song, “I Can’t Go For That” is pretty self explanatory. Its about a guy and a girl who are very much in love. Things are going well, the dude thinks he has a real catch until…she starts asking for illogical things. “Baby…why don’t you go shopping with me on Sunday??” when she knows damn well the game is on. “Baby…I think you should only go out 1 night a week for 1 hour with your goons” when she knows damn well you are dedicated to goonery and hamboozlery. “Baby…why don’t you let me stick my thumb in your 2’s??” when she knows damn well that…bahaha hopefully your girl never asks you for that type of ish, yikes. Anyway, sometimes you just can’t go for that…This video is fresh tho, real mysterious for the time…and the dude on the sax kills it. My only confusion is with :29…what is with the hand swiping chicanery? slightly treach.

Another notable slow jam from Hall and Oates is Sara Smile…which was re made pretty nicely by Boyz to Men. May have to relay this to Cleo for this week’s P Droppa. Damn Friday seems so far away. Fight the good friends…and if you question the soul of any of these gentlemen above…rest assured that they are indeed…

P.S. Make sure you play close attention to when she has her grill out.  HER TEETH ARE SO BUSTED!!!  She needs to keep that grill in at all times.

ATIliens, I am deeply sorry for my extended absence from posting.  Work and GMAT Passion has been droppin’ it in my britches.

Good thing for an amazing summer with the goons and with K-Dizzy.  Well now I’m back like Jordan wearing the 45.  My boy from HS sent me something amazing on Wikipedia today on gChat that I had to share with the rest of the ATI world.  Let’s start off by listening to the classic song Regulate by Warren G and Nate Dogg:

Now I know about 98% of ATI readers clearly know what this song is about.  but for the other 2% here is the Synopsis of the song from Wikipedia.

On a cool, clear night (typical to Southern California) Warren G travels through his neighborhood, searching for women with whom he might initiate sexual intercourse. He has chosen to engage in this pursuit alone.[5]

Nate Dogg, having just arrived in the east side of Long Beach, seeks Warren. On his way to find Warren, Nate passes a car full of women who are excited to see him. Regardless, he insists to the women that there is no cause for excitement.

Warren makes a left turn at 21st Street and Lewis Ave, in the East Hill/Salt Lake neighborhood[6], where he sees a group of young men enjoying a game of dice together. He parks his car and greets them. He is excited to find people to play with, but to his chagrin, he discovers they intend to relieve him of his material possessions. Once the hopeful robbers reveal their firearms, Warren realizes he is in a less than favorable predicament.

Meanwhile, Nate passes the women, as they are low on his list of priorities. His primary concern is locating Warren. After curtly casting away the strumpets (whose interest in Nate was such that they crashed their automobile), he serendipitously stumbles upon his friend, Warren G, being held up by the young miscreants.

Warren, unaware that Nate is surreptitiously observing the scene unfold, is in disbelief that he is being robbed. The perpetrators have taken jewelry and a Rolex Watch from Warren, who is so incredulous that he asks what else the robbers intend to steal. This is most likely a rhetorical question.

Observing these unfortunate proceedings, Nate realizes that he may have to use his firearm to deliver his friend from harm.

The tension crescendos as the robbers point their guns to Warren’s head. Warren senses the gravity of his situation. He cannot believe the events unfolding could happen in his own neighborhood. As he imagines himself making a fantastical escape, he catches a glimpse of his friend, Nate.

Nate has seventeen cartridges (sixteen residing in the pistol‘s magazine, with a solitary round placed in the chamber and ready to be fired) to expend on the group of robbers. Afterward, he generously shares the credit for neutralizing the situation with Warren, though it is clear that Nate did all of the difficult work. Putting congratulations aside, Nate quickly reminds himself that he has committed multiple homicides to save Warren before letting his friend know that there are females nearby if he wishes to fornicate with them.

Warren recalls that it was the promise of copulation that coaxed him away from his previous activities, and is thankful that Nate knows a way to satisfy these urges. Nate quickly finds the women who earlier crashed their car on Nate’s account. He remarks to one that he is fond of her physical appeal. The woman, impressed by Nate’s singing ability, asks that he and Warren allow her and her friends to share transportation. Soon, both friends are driving with automobiles full of women to the East Side Motel, presumably to consummate their flirtation in an orgy.

The third verse is more expository, with Warren and Nate explaining their G Funk musical style. Warren displays his bravado by daring anyone to approach the style. There follows a brief discussion of the genre’s musicological features, with special care taken to point out that in said milieu the rhythm is not in fact the rhythm, as one might assume, but actually the bass. Similarly the bass serves a purpose closer to that which the treble would in more traditional musical forms. Nate displays his bravado by claiming that individuals with equivalent knowledge could not even attempt to approach his level of lyrical mastery. Nate goes on to note that if any third party smokes as he does, they would find themselves in a state of intoxication almost daily (from Nate’s other works, it can be inferred that the substance referenced is marijuana[7]). Nate concludes his delineation of the night by issuing a threat to “busters,” suggesting that he and Warren will further “regulate” any potential incidents in the future (presumably by engaging their antagonists with small arms fire).


That ish is hilarious.  You can literally read it as you listen as if the song was in a foreign language.

“After curtly casting away the strumpets (whose interest in Nate was such that they crashed their automobile).”  HAHAHA!  I will definitely be calling certain types of women strumpets now.  Cleo will probably do it to their face.  Oh well, taste it.

What up ATIliens?!?  I hope by now most of you have seen Inception.  Most of us have seen it and definitely enjoyed it.  Even Reason’s convicted a$$ didn’t think that it contained any movie treachery.  I don’t want to do a full movie review and spoil the movie for our readers who have yet to see it.  Instead I’m going to touch on a few points:

  • Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio goes hard (NH), nuff said.  The dude from 3rd Rock From The Sun (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has definitely grown up since then and has an amazing fight scene.  That Juno girl (Ellen Page) can get it.  Everybody else does their thing.  The cast was like Kimmy K, very well put together.
  • Plot: AMAZING.  Very original plot (not one of those remakes of an old movie that everyone in Hollywood is doing).  Plus, to think that it took 10 years to get this movie from an idea to screen is ridiculous.
  • Special Effects: ABSURD.  Without saying to much, the fight scenes are on point, as well as all of the dream sequences.  Fiyah.
  • Overall: All I can say is Inception has been:

So I’ve been hitting y’all with some old school joints for the summer, but don’t think I forgot about that new music.  I’ll hit you with the old school post tomorrow but today we are sticking to that New New. DARKNE$$ and I were talking about what CDs we can’t wait for to drop.  And who was first on our list, none other than Officer Ricky:

Please keep your glasses on Richard

We got to talking about Ricky Rozay because of how nice that Albert Anastasia mixtape was.  Then we heard this joint:

Rick Ross ft. Kanye West – Live Fast, Die Young

Fiyahhhh.  Then I heard this today:

Rick Ross ft. Drake and Chrisette Michelle – Aston Martin Music

(I’m sorry for the bad quality, but as the release date gets closer I’ll put up some better ve rsions)

Last but not least, I gotta drop this bit of Ig’nance:

Juvenile – Drop That Azz

Whenever you shake it you make a playa’ smile

But if I wonder if you can drop it hot potato style

Juve is absurd.

Update: I’m gonna drop some of that Dipset piff for Logic.

Dipset (Jim Jones, Cam’ron, and Juelz Santana) – Salute

This song is turbs.  The best part is Jim Jones talking about getting tazed at the club in the beginning.  Dipset you are ATI Disapproved:

What up ATIliens???  It’s Thursday for you but it’s my Friday.  Don’t have to work tomorrow since I’ll be posted up at the Yankee’s game.  You babe, have that.  The new season of Top Chef started last week, so in honor of that this weeks Area Code of the Week is the host, Padma Lakshmi.

Looks like she likes Chocolate...good for us

Dear Padma,

Please continue to do that.



Let’s start out with the face:

Padma has that exotic look to her.  She’s also got that older woman appeal.

She’s defintely a Nolan because she’s almost 40 and still bringing the heat.  I’m going to give her an 8.

Now for the binary code a.k.a. would you.  That’s clearly a 1.  Let’s go.  Nuff said.

And on to the body.  Let’s take a peak at what she’s working with:

OOOOOOO, me likey.  She’s definitely working with a model type midsection and some nice J’s.  Plus she’s looking pretty damn sexy in that lingerie.  We need to see what she’s working with from the backside too though:

That’s definitely a nice little model booty but it’s not poppin’ enough for ya man Hotdogs.  It’s definitely good enough for these dudes though:

"We am NOT looking at these lobsters"

I’m going to give Padma a 7 for the body. She can definitely cook for me any time.   Maybe we can open up a restaurant together on the corner of Beat Street and Sesh Avenue.

That makes her an 817 meaning she’s chillin’ down in Ft. Worth, TX.  Who has ever made eating a burger sexier than this?

What do y’all think?
