I couldn’t pass this post up. Pigeon John is a hilarious and progressively more important emcee in the contemporary hip hop world. I first came across him back when he was doing some stuff with L.A. Symphony, a Christian hip-hop group. Now I’m not normally one for theological rap, but these guys were good. Heavy […]
So I quickly mentioned this the other day in my post about some upcoming albums in 2009 and I have to say that since I’ve had a chance to listen to the whole thing, this is just a stellar effort. I was grossly underwhelmed by the Rope-a-Dope and by The Undisputed Truth, but Us’ target=_blank>Us […]
Someone took the time to do a little rap about Mac products…recorded at an actual Apple store.
I’m not sure where these are coming from, but this little video of what Mos Def would do if he was president is amazing. Most of his ideas aren’t really that surprising based on the stuff he’s said in the past, but I particularly cared for the way he ended things….by declaring a 100 year […]
Ever heard of DJ Kayper? No? Well you, my friend, are missing out one of the best female deejays around town. Her BBC bio is glowing: Heavily influenced by legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, she mastered the art of turntablism at a young age and artfully merged beat juggling and scratch techniques with prime time club […]
These cats do instrumental versions of classic hip hop joints. In fact, they released a whole album in tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan titled Enter the 37th Chamber. Check out their version of CREAM below. No disrespect to them, or to the Wu, but frankly it’s a bit remarkable how repetitive the beats can get […]
Somehow I can’t find the video of the actual incident (most of them have been taken down due to a copyright claim by Viacom), which is totally fine by me. We’ve all heard all about how Kanye ran on stage when Taylor Swift won the award for Best Female Video, beating Beyonce’s Single Ladies video. […]
The rest of 2009 is shaping up to be pretty exciting in the world of hip hop. Not only have we finally seen the release of Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3, we’ve got way better stuff coming down the pipe. Jay-Z – The Blueprint 3 This is, by far, not Hova’s best work, and generally the […]
I just think this is amazing. I mean, he is a rep from New York so he should be aware of this stuff, but he is dropping a whole bunch of amazing names on the House. So there you go, conclusive proof that even the US Gov’t sometimes likes good hip hop.
Just a quick post about a decent webcomic called Diesel Sweeties. It takes a while to grow on you, but there are some pretty solid strips to date. Here are a couple of the ones I’ve enjoyed, especially since they’re all about records and vinyl.
