Nicolay’s City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya, but Don't buy it from iTunes

Nicolay and Phone dropped Nicolay's City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya in electronic format today (physical copy release is next week). If you heard or have City Lights vol 1.5, you are probably like me; waiting for 2.0 to drop.

Well that day has come with electronic version available at both iTunes and, however if you are going to purchase the electronic version, buy it from Amazon, NOT iTunes... here's Phonte to explain why:

iTunes gets the Gas Face!

Digital version of 'City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya' released!

The digital version of 'City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya' was released yesterday, exactly one week before the CD version drops on September 15. After an unusual but compelling request from Phonte and Nicolay not to purchase the digital album through iTunes (see: 'City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya' and why NOT to buy it from iTunes', fans collectively took to, pushing 'Shibuya' into the site's MP3 Album Top 100 chart almost immediately. And it didn't stop there. At the time of writing, 'Shibuya' is the #1 album in Dance, and the #16 album overall! Not a small feat for an album released independently by the artists themselves, without any marketing budgets or other financial backing.

A heartfelt thank you to all of our supporters, past, present, and future. You are much appreciated!

Dirk, You Are Not The Father....

That sigh of relief you hear is Dirk Nowitzki after getting news that is crazy ass live-in kleptomaniac of a ex-girlfriend/fiancee WAS NOT pregnant with Dirk's child.
"As we suspected from the start, we did not believe that she was pregnant and now that has been confirmed," Hart said.

The test, ordered July 24 by Dallas family court Associate Judge Randall Grubbs, was administered in Missouri. Hart on Friday received the documentation confirming that Taylor is not pregnant.

"Good news on Dirk's ex," Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said via his Twitter feed Thursday afternoon. "No surprise. Can't wait [for] training camp."

Within two weeks of her May 6 arrest at Nowitzki's Dallas home, Taylor told The Dallas Morning News in a phone interview that she was "pregnant and alone and broke," insisting that Nowitzki was the father.

On Thursday, Taylor's Texas-based attorney, Scott Renick, told ESPN's John Barr: "I don't know if she miscarried, I don't know if she was never pregnant, I just don't know and I may never know."

Below is video of Dirk's reaction to the news...
