Often slept on New Orleans rapper Curren$y continues to amaze listeners with his unique delivery and comical punchlines. Here's the latest video from Curren$y titled "Hold On". As an emerging artist myself its always good to see up and comers get attention. Also as an independent artist I can appreciate the indie feel to the video. Fuck spending 1000's of dollars on videos when with enough creativity and editing skills you can create beautiful pieces. Enjoy...SYNO!!!!!
I don't cosign mixtapes until I have a chance to roll up and ride around with them (theres nothin like good car speakers) so when Rick Ross dropped "Ashes to Ashes" on 12/24 i couldnt post anything until i gave it the "Kahsyno treatment".

The US army has just released info on a new weapon thats been tagged a "game changer." The XM25 is the 1st weapon to use an array of sights, sensors and lasers that calculate the distance to the target and takes factors such as air pressure and temperature into account using a high tech microchip embedded in the shell. This weapon will turn an average shooter into a great one. It will come in handy specifically in Afghanistan where most fighting is done with large walls in between each side. Check it out...SYNO!!!!!

Inspired by Jay-Z's latest book "Decoded" I decided to do a little research on one of the most famous black painters of our time. Not only was he rubbing shoulders with the most popular socialites of his time something i found interesting is that he did most of his painting in $1000 Versace suits. In 2007 one of Basquiat's untitled works sold for a jaw dropping $14.6 million at Sotheby's in New York. Here's some background info on Jean-Michel and a few of his paintings. I anticipate hanging a few of these amazing pieces on the walls of my home in the near future, if i can get one for the low low that is LOL. Enjoy...SYNO!!!!!
Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist and the first artist of African descent to become an international art star. His career in art began as a graffiti artist in New York City in the late 1970s, and in the 1980s produced Neo-expressionist painting. Basquiat died due to a heroin overdose on August 12, 1988, at the age of 27. (Wikipedia)
This last painting is the one that sold for $14.6 million

Ive had the pleasure of test driving the 2011 Cadillac SRX Crossover for a week and i must say i was impressed. Took it on a rode trip and surprisingly it was great on gas. It has all the comforts of a Cadi with the fuel efficiency of a Focus. Starting at $33,830 its a great buy for those who want luxury without the $80,000 ticket. Even fully loaded its only $55,850. This is my Kahsyno's World automobile pick of the week.
