Music Break this week features the debut of "Don't Get Us Wrong" the first single off the upcoming Substance Abuse album "Background Music" which features appearances from Sadat X, Percee P, Myka Nyne, MC Eiht, and Max Julien. As opposed to groups who either force change or resist it, Substance Abuse embraces natural progression. The duo creates earnest hip-hop music, combining equal measures of intelligence, clarity, innovation, and polish to evoke the unpretentious consciousness of the Golden Age era, while avoiding corny retro posturing.
Group members Eso Tre and Subz grew up together in Los Angeles, where they became hip-hop fans at an early age. In high school, the duo could often be found in the audience at the legendary Unity events that have since come to define the progressive LA hip-hop scene of the early 90's. Inspired by the shows' emphasis on positive expression through creative art, the friends began working on their own music.
Jeff can also be seen on The Totally Rad Show. They've gone daily so there's a new segment to watch every day of the week!

In other news the Xbox360 version of Fallout New Vegas has been leaked, and pirated, proving once again that PC gamers are thieves who are ruining the industry.
Well, it's on the pirate market here in Korea, anyway. But you need to mod your console first. It's easier to pirate a PC game vs. a console game since no mod to the hardware of the PC is required. That doesn't make it right either way, just that PC pirating is bigger than console pirating because of it. It's also easier for companies to detect on consoles since they're running the online services.
I've never bought pirated console games but have picked up pirated PC games and DVDs. And before the legal eagles get on me, it was in countries where there were no copyright laws, so I wasn't breaking the law. For console games I don't want to risk a banning off the online services so I just shell out for the games. I also consider that I can easily sell my used console game for a decent price on the used market, but thanks to DRM can't on PC games (as easily or at all in some instances) and don't get squat for used DVDs. So that is an aspect to it as well.
