Really??? If the contestant "loses" a man falls to his death??? Something about this didn't sit right with me. I mean "What did this guy do to deserve this??? And what's with this music??? So misleading. The music totally doesn't set the mood for what is taking place. A man has pretty good chance of falling off a cliff and you're yodeling ??? I don't know about you but that's fugged up to me! I refused to watch that game afterward but it still stuck with me. I could hear that haunting yodeling in my nightmares. And to this day, every time I hear yodeling I cringe. I heard that same yodeling today when I was walking past the television. I stopped dead in my tracks. I had all of these old emotions coming back. It had been over fifteen years since I heard that blood curdling chant but it felt like I was a kid again. I was forced to turn off the TV. There's a special place in hell for whoever created that sick and twisted game. -end rant-
The contestant is shown a two-digit prize and asked to bid on it. If they bid the actual price, the mountain climber stays where he is. Otherwise, the climber moves up the mountain, advancing along the scale the number of dollars away the contestant's bid is from the actual price. To give an element of suspense to the game, the actual price is not revealed until after the climber has moved, so that the contestant and audience will not know how far he will travel. If the climber remains on the mountain, the contestant wins that small prize.
The process is repeated for two more two-digit prizes, generally of increasing value. The climber continues from the point at which he stopped for the previous prize. If the contestant's bids are a total of $25 or less away from the actual prices of the prizes (i.e., if the climber does not go over the cliff), the contestant wins all three small prizes and the grand prize. If the climber goes over the cliff at any point, the game ends. (via wiki)

The Clipse are coming...are you still excited? I am. Here's another street single from " Before The Casket Drops" In stores Dec. 8th
"IN THE STORE
Secondhand Sureshots (Deluxe Super Set)
Exclusive pre-order. Ship date: December 1st
DVD Secondhand Sureshots the film
RECORD 12-inch Picture Disc, original music by Daedelus, J-Rocc, Nobody and Ras G, plus a megamix by Kutmah
SLIPMATS Left & Right.
SLEEVES Hand-screened gatefold LP sleeves individually printed by Hit+Run
Here's the short and sweet...
Secondhand Sureshots is a filmed experiment in creative sound recycling. Dublab Dublab directors Bryan “Morpho” Younce & Mark "frosty" McNeill sent beatmakers Daedelus, Nobody, J.Rocc and Ras G on safari into L.A. thrift stores with orders to make new music out of five finds while the cameras filmed the whole process. The result is a mini-documentary about putting new life into old vinyl. Over 2 hours of footage, music & bonus material.
Secondhand Sureshots will be released Feb. 9, 2010 as DVD & CD, distributed by Stones Throw. Today on our web store we present the exclusive Secondhand Sureshots Deluxe Super Set.
The Deluxe Super Set is a true sound and vision experiment. Dublab scoured Southern California and rescued 500 gatefold LP covers from dusty thrift store bin obscurity. Our graphic friends at Hit+Run took the covers and screen-printed them by hand, making new visual masterpieces to house the first public release of Secondhand Sureshots. Stuffed in this package is all-exclusive material sampled and shredded into new forms fine-tuned to blow your mind. We hope it inspires you to make your own creative gems and jams!"

HeavyGun recently interviewed the winner of the first HeavyGun x BRMF Beat Battle: Firearms. If you heard the name (or the music) you know that this man is serious about his craft. Get to know the man behind some of the hottest (no pun intended) beats and rhymes I've ever heard!
1. Did you have a strategy going into the battle?
Firearms: Kill shit and play dope ass beats. Wasnt expecting to win though...just wanted to make a lil noise. I was only confident about the Can sample round...I knew if I made it that far I would get through that round. In the final round I was thinkin Harvey was gon murder my shit hahahah....somehow I came out on top though. Mad props to my bro Joe Harvey...he inspired alot of production from me.
2.Describe your style of production?
Firearms: My style is what I call "not having a style" lol....whatever im feeling or whatever an artist requests is what gets done. I have damn near every type of beat. I go thru phases...right now im choppin samples alot. My last phase was straight down south beats. I pride myself on steppin out my comfort zone and re-creating my "style"...
3.You are a emcee/producer. Is it easy to rap over your own beats?
Firearms: Man im not tryna brag or boast, but, real talk, its easy to rap over ALL beats...once I catch the flow, I GO. I will say its easier to rap over beats that I DONT get that feeling inside me(the chills that tell you YOU GOTTA spit on this) with than it is the ones I do...if I feel it in my soul I feel like I gotta live up to my own expectations of what a track thats perfect should sound like.
4.Lil Firearms was in the building at the battle. Did he give you any advice for the battle?
Firearms: lol...funny you ask...before the final round started I asked Lil Homie pick a number...he said 16. After me and Harvey played our first 2 tracks and they was screamin 1 more round I couldnt decide what to play. So I was like fuck it im playing 16...thats the joint that won the battle for me and I didnt realize till after it was over that is was the track Lil Feeray said play from jumpstreet. Dudes a genius hahahaha
5.For the sample round what Can song did you sample? Was it difficult?
Firearms: Its a track off their "Soon Over Babaluma" album called "Dizzy Dizzy". Man I was choppin up the samp on the ASR10 coming up with some dope ideas. Threw them all out, and the morning of the battle @ 2am I started workin on the beat. I stayed up till 730am workin on it perfecting it. I wouldnt say it was difficult, just complex because of the way I chopped it and filtered the guitar sounds. Either way hard work payed off...
6.What's next for Firearms?
Firearms: My album "The Cure", more beats, more collabs, Beat Mafia, etc. I just wanna grow musically. Take it to the level it used to be on when it had SOUL.
7: Shout outs?
Firearms: First and foremost SHOUTS to heavygunblog and everyone involved with it, my P.I.C. Son of Thought, the MAF, Axehand, Tornado Alley, Cutboxxx, all the producers in the battle, Joe Harvey, Dola, Alpha, ComDot, BFAM, Flight City, ScumBag BillionHeirs, MY SON, the judges from the battle(alph, A.I., Hellhammer and Lex)...and everybody who came out. That was a good day in HIP HOP and we needed that. NAP IS ALIVE. PEACE.
