04.05.13WU:Mixed Free Download Dropping 4-9-13!
WU-Mixed: is a 14 track compilation of one of the greatest game changing rap groups of the mid 90's, the Wu-Tang Clan.
This Free downloadable album is remixed and produced entirely by VERSE*ALL (instrumology / Blend:inn Series) who has recreated that Wu-Tang vibe, using their signature kung fu movie back drops and dusty sample effects. You can excpect to hear the entire WTC members including O.D.B, plus guest appearences by the Notorious BIG, Red Man, and Ruff Endz.
Bonus Track included when you download the entire album.
NOTE: VerseAll has no affiliation to the Wu-Tang Clan and has done this album as a longtime fan of the Wu-Tang Clan. All beats are original production by VerseAll. www.verseall.com.
02.27.13Sorry For Neglecting You!
Hey everyone, Thank you for all of your continued support and constantly checking into VERSEALL.COM. I appreciate all of you from the bottom of my heart. I know I haven't updated this site in quite a while but rest assure, I will be back at it with a new look, more exclusives, and also links to my new blog INSTRUMOLOGY.COM.
I have been focusing on my beatmaking more than my lyrics due in part of the constant evolving of rap and the other part being that I retired my rhyme book a year ago. Beat Making has always been my first passion and rapping came as apart of the package to sell my production to more skillfull MC's but as I was just as good and even better at some point than most of the rappers rapping.
Will I do it again, well time will only tell but as far as my stand on retiring from rapping, the answer is N.O.!
07.02.12BLEND:inn [A Remixtape] Series
Over the weekend, while I was beat making for a few hours. I stopped the track and thought about who would sound tight over this production? I started going through a bunch of acapellas when I finally came to a song called love sessions by Ghostface Killah Ft. Ruff Endz. I added the acapella to the track and BAM, it worked.
I then thought about the success that I had with my free Blend:inn remixtape series and thought before I retire from this rap music thing, I would do a final remixtape. I know you are wondering why I would be retiring from rap music, well not quite like retiring but more like playing the background for a choice of better words. I decided to work with positive artist and also speak through my production so that means, NO MORE LYRICS from the man you know as VERSE*ALL>
01.04.12[BLEND:inn] Remixtape is Here!

01.18.10MLK DAY! His Dream And The Message
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Civil Rights Leader, A Husband, and a Father. He had a vision of peace and equality and fought to get black people those equal rights which we enjoy today (some what).
"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus" is a quote from one of MLK's Speeches.
The Creator of the syndicated animated series The Boondocks brought MLK back to life a few years back in an episode entitled "Dream Differed" which caused a lot of contraversy amongst black and white people alike.
I Have a Dream - Address at March on Washington
August 28, 1963. Washington, D.C.
Watch the Full 16-min video of Martin Luther King's famous I Have a Dream Speach
I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. [Applause]
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity.
But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition.
In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check -- a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the determination of the Negro. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor's lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
MLK was assasinated in the year 1968 April 4th.
