KRS-One Discusses the Difference between the MC and the Emcee, Makes Less and Less Sense

Oh, KRS-One. I love you. I REALLY, REALLY love you. You’re one of the best rappers and freestylers of all time, and Boogie Down Productions will always hold a special place in my heart. Your Stop the Violence Movement proved that hip-hop didn’t need to be violent to be legit, and suggested another way to young hip-hop […]

George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic at House of Blues Boston

George Clinton and PFunk will be playing at the House of Blues tomorrow, February 19. I don’t think I even have to write a description of this group, who are essentially the musical forefathers of everything cool from the last 30 years. But in case you are unfamiliar with the group: Forget George Clinton’s rainbow hair and […]

By now we all are acutely aware that the We Are the World 25 for Haiti was a big fucking musical mess. It took something that was original and  kind of touching from the 1980’s and made it into an auto-tuned trainwreck of forced, sappy pop idiocy.

It’s 3am, I’m coming back from watching the third person—in a long line of doe-eyed teenagers—make a mockery of a keg stand (it can’t be called a proper keg stand with an imposed 9 second time limit), and I can’t help but fixate on how these kids are destroying the floors of this apartment by […]

Parks and Recreation Ain’t Nothin’ to Fuck With.

Oh shit. Where do I even begin? There are so many things I love about this: ?uestlove with a sniffer of brandy and his trademark afro pick. The RZA’s emphatic endorsement of Girl Power. The idea that Amy Poehler only got the role of Leslie Knope after Ghostface Killah turned it down. AZIZ MOTHERFUCKIN’ ANSARI, who […]

The Carter (Lil Wayne Documentary) and other ways to waste your time

So the snow is back in Boston, you don’t want to go anywhere, but you keep on asking yourself, “what the Hell should I do with my life.” Well, if you are anything like me you’ll probably want to spend that time learning something about society, culture, or bitches. Sadly, neither of these videos do […]
