After I finished this ruff mix, he asked for a two track of the instrumental to relay his vocal. He agreed to send it back so I could finish it…… It never showed up. To quote Jay-Z, “What the fuck you done to that?” — I gotta admit, those were the first words that came to my head when I heard what Blu (one of my favorite emcees) did to my remix. Well, It’s sorta like a remix of a remix. Check his version, here. I felt you should hear my original version and judge for yourself."  – Jeedo

The Best Ways to Cure The St. Patty's Day Hang Over


If you are anything like me you probably made a lot of bad decisions last night in the pursuit of finding out the real story behind this guy named Patrick. It all started when I put my green shoes on. The rest is a little bit of a blur. I woke up this morning and fealt like I lost a boxing match with the 80's Mike Tyson. Not feeling so hot is an understatement in this case. All morning I've been trying to figure out how to kick this horrible feeling of the green clover blues. This is the best list I could come up with. I hope it helps you as much as it's helping me.



Watch re-runs of Trailer Park Boys while drinking two gallons of water


This will make you laugh so much you'll forget that your head feels like it's in a vice.




Read Jay-Z's Decoded and take a shot of Pedialyte after every
page


Hang Over code.




Order IN-N-OUT


If you can make your way to an IN-N-OUT Burger, order yourself a 4x4 with animal style fries and a coke. This greasy combo is sure to settle your unsteady stomach.




Take 4 advil and play lil wayne's "I feel like dying" on repeat


I'm not really sure why, but this song always makes me feel better after a long night of drinking. Maybe because it makes me realize it could be worse. (laughs)




Go to Starbucks and blog 


There's nothing like searching for dope hip hop while sobering up to the bold pick of the day.



Start Drinking Again
If all else fails just keep going.
