OJAYZIS: The Jay-Z – Oasis mashup

Given the recent feud between Jay-Z and Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher, it seemed inevitable that an ambitious producer (or, in this case, group of producers) would try to mash-up their respective catalogues.  Three days ago, Spanish producing trio Cookin’ Soul released just such a project.  Called OJAYZIS, the ten track download is a bit of a mixed bag, […]

Timbaland producing new Jay-Z album

Timbaland (the producer who can do no wrong)  is reportedly producing Jay-Z’s new album.  Not that Jay-Z seems to need the help producing an insanely popular record, but I think having Tim behind your beats pretty much ensures it goes platinum several times over. The last time these cats got together to make a track […]

NYPD tracks rappers

The Virginia Gazette, a few months back, reported that the New York Police Department (NYPD) has collecting information about various rappers and their crews.  Why, you may ask?  Good question. Now, there doesn’t appear to be any kind official policy in place to make this happen.  At least nothing that’s public knowledge.  But here’s what […]

Mash-Ups To Get The Weekend Started Right

So I was browsin’ through imeem.com today, looking for some new dopeness to listen to while I was at work.  I stumbled on to two absolutely ridiculous remix/mash-ups, and thought I would post them here for your listening pleasure. The first is a blend of Beck’s “E-Pro” and Dr Dre’s “Next Episode” feat. Snoop D-O-double-G.  Check this […]

Jay-Z at Glastonbury

We’ve previously reported on Jay-Z headlining the Glastonbury festival, and just how annoyed that made Noel Gallagher. Now that the festival is upon us, you can see Jay-Z hitting back in one of the best ways possible. I give you the Jay-Z live cover of Oasis’ “Wonderwall”.

Lil’ Wayne Feels The Love

Lil’ Wayne has been getting mad love recently. The CBC, Canada’s venerable national news service, compared his newest album, Tha Carter III, to “the 1990s opuses of 2Pac, the Notorious B.I.G. and OutKast – mega-selling, landmark releases that altered the course of rap music.” Diddy has called him the “best youngest rapper alive” and Jay-Z […]

The Green Album

Omer Saar (of universoulproductions fame) has cobbled together the Green Album, a collection of Al Green tracks mixed with acapellas from various rappers. You’ll hear some Jay-Z, MF Doom, Common,  the Fugees, Pharycde, and others on this record.  So definitely a pretty dope tracklisting. Check it all out at his blog here. Now I know […]

Jay-Z To Noel: Hip-Hop Deserves ‘Respect’

Earlier, we reported how Noel Gallagher (of Oasis fame) was upset with the decision to include Jay-Z on the bill for the upcoming Glastonbury Festival because hip-hop isn’t “guitar music” and thus doesn’t fit with the festival’s “tradition.” Although festival organizers were quick to defend their decision to include Hova, the rapper himself remained largely […]
