School Of Sharks Presents: MarQ Spekt & Huey P Capone – Snake Eyes Vs Storm Shadow by Steadybloggin

Gezzuuuss! y'all won't be able to go to bed after knocking this timeless joint tough. SMH

words by MarQ Spekt

If it’s one thing the game is missing, it’s fun. Not silly, nonsensical fun, but the fun mc’s used to have spitting and sharing their craft. We decided to keep the gems dropping because the movement has been growing on some a fan a day shit. You gotta appreciate the people who appreciate you. In doing this and with this new era of sharing music, I decided to open up the vaults a lil bit. This project originally done in 2003-04 embodies this totally. Bare in mind I’ve been doing art and being creative for a long time. This project was something organic between two friends who grew up in the culture like it was an eye of a hurricane or middle of a tornado. We weren’t some 2nd or 3rd hand account type people we were there. You’ll feel the hunger and rawness in the music, but I think you’ll also hear the fun as well. In conjunction with the good peoples over atSteadyBloggin‘/Philaflavas/TROYBlog I present to you

VIDEO: HAS-LO "Untitled #1 (Hold On)"

No Doubt!!!

words Mellomusic group

The second video, Untitled #1 (Hold On), was directed by Antonio Battle who also came up with the visual concepts. The song is one of the most autobiographical on the entire album. With the passing of Has-Lo's Grandmother the video's cemetery scene was meant to match the track's lyrival content and emotive weight. It was a visit to a lost relative on the anniversary of their passing. Other scenes such as the record store were more textural, to give listeners a setting to go with the music. It was also designed to emphasize the fact that music is a part of how Has-Lo copes with life's trials. Putting a video to this one was important for Has due to the personal nature of the track and since not everyone catches the layers of meaning within a song on just a listen or two: sometimes visuals help to key people into the themes.

Words MellowMusic group

Apollo Brown "Clouds" has been out now for just over a month and is still going strong! The first pressing of CDs sold out in an amazing 2 days (Don't worry it's back in stock)! The demand has prompted a vinyl edition to be manufactured that will soon be available. In the meantime, Apollo cooked up some special edition features for all the loyal supporters.

"Let's celebrate the end and get to startin' over"

Last week you heard Has-Lo & Apollo Brown join forces on Heirlooms, but this week it's Oddisee & Apollo Brown on The Times. Oddisee, who is half Sudanese, doesn't normally bring his politics to the table, but in this rare moment Oddisee offers an entire song devoted to the turbulent changes occurring in Northern Africa, in particular the historic vote that split his home country of Sudan into two separate nations. The Republic of Southern Sudan is now the newest African nation: listen to Oddisee break his thoughts down over the Apollo Brown beat.

Listen deep as Oddisee reveals some of his most personal, political, and poignant lyrics ever:
"Indeed, congratulations are in order / I'm from north of the border / responsible for the slaughter / I was always on their side / for them I'ma always ride / bein' raised in the states I learnt we in the same tribe"

Look for the official deluxe editions release of Oddisee Odd Seasons May 17th on Vinyl, CD, and Digital.

How Much Protein Do You Need?

No doubt!

By Cari Nierenberg
Reviewed By Louise Chang, MD

Protein tends to play a starring role at mealtimes, but you might be better off if it moves out of the spotlight and becomes part of a supporting cast of foods on your plate.

Most Americans get more than enough protein each day, and may be getting too much of this nutrient from animal sources, like meat, poultry, and eggs.

Although important in the diet, extra protein will not help you build more muscle or make you stronger. When you're consuming too much of it, you're probably taking in more calories and fat than your body needs.

You need protein because "it has its hands in every critical function of the body," says Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. But the truth about protein is that many people don't need as much as they are taking in.

How Much Protein Is Enough?

Adults in the U.S. are encouraged to get 10% to 35% of their day's calories from protein foods. That's about 46 grams of protein for women, and 56 grams of protein for men.

It's not hard to get this amount if you eat two to three servings of protein-rich foods a day, according to the CDC.

A small 3-ounce piece of meat has about 21 grams of protein. A typical 8-ounce piece of meat could have over 50 grams of protein.
One 8-ounce container of yogurt has about 11 grams of protein.
One cup of milk has 8 grams of protein.
One cup of dry beans has about 16 grams of protein.
People With Special Protein Needs

Not everyone needs the same amount of protein. Here are six groups who need to pay more attention to their protein requirements.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women. Lauren Antonucci, MS, RD, director of Nutrition Energy in New York City says pregnant women need about 10 more grams of protein than they did before. And "nursing women need 20 grams more protein a day than they did before pregnancy to support milk production," says Antonucci. You would get 10 grams in one Greek yogurt or a half-cup of cottage cheese, so it doesn't add up to a lot of food. She encourages pregnant women to get 20 to 30 grams of their protein a day from low-fat dairy products because calcium and vitamin D are crucial for the bone health of mother and baby.

Athletes. Most sports involve physically breaking down muscle during the activity and repairing it afterward. So the protein needs of active people are influenced by the length, frequency, and intensity of their workouts. Endurance athletes such as marathoners need about 50% more protein than a sedentary person, says sports dietitian Josephine Conolly-Schoonen, MS, RD, on Medscape Today. Body Builders might need twice as much protein as a sedentary person. But it's important to remember than most Americans, including athletes, get plenty of protein in their regular diet, and do not need protein supplements.

People With Special Protein Needs continued...

Dieters. When shedding pounds sensibly, the goal is to lose body fat but maintain lean muscle mass. Protein helps you do that. Protein foods tend to be more filling, so they delay hunger, making it easier to stick with your weight-loss program. Just keep an eye on the calories and portion sizes of your protein choices when including them in meals and snacks.

Vegetarians. When counseling vegetarians, Antonucci finds out which protein foods -- meat, fish, eggs, or dairy -- are being included or excluded from the diet. As long as vegetarians are eating a variety of healthy foods, they should be able to get the recommended amount of protein from sources other than meat.

Vegans. People who don't eat any animal products depend on beans, dried peas, and whole grains as their main sources of protein. Vegetables, nuts, and seeds also contain small amounts of it. Vegans can meet their protein needs, but it takes careful planning and may require more food to do so.

The Best Food Sources

"I encourage people to choose lean forms of protein, that way it has minimal extra baggage like fat," Bonci says. Lean animal sources include red meat with less marbling, poultry without skin, nonfat or low-fat dairy products, and fish.

She's also a fan of soy foods -- tofu, edamame (green soybeans), roasted soy nuts, and meat substitutes like veggie burgers or crumbles.

Most people benefit from eating less processed protein, such as bacon, hot dogs, and lunch meats, and are better off eating beans and fish a few times a week, suggests Antonucci. "Beans and whole grains are some of the healthiest foods on the planet and they're cheap, filling, and easy to make," she says.

From black beans and garbanzos to lentils and split peas, plant proteins can be used in soups, chili, spreads, and Mexican dishes. As for whole grains, three protein-rich grains are quinoa, spelt, and amaranth.

Unlike animal protein, most plant-based proteins are "incomplete," meaning they lack some amino acid building blocks. By combining plant proteins, such as rice and beans or hummus on pita bread, they become "complete" with all the essential amino acids found in animal protein. Soy protein is the only plant source that's complete.

Tips for Not Going Overboard With Protein

Protein servings of meat, poultry, or fish, should be the size and thickness of the palm of your hand, suggests Antonucci. That's about a 3-ounce portion. She suggests that meat eaters eat no more than two palm-sized servings of meat a day to get enough -- but not too much -- protein.

To look at it another way, protein should take up no more than one-third of your plate at meals, whether it's in a form you can drink or chew, suggests Bonci. She recommends including small amounts of protein foods at every meal to spread your intake evenly throughout the day.
