May 7, 2010 by

Okay, so this is by no means new, but when I first heard that Kanye was going to be on The Cleveland Show I filed it under “pass” along with getting my nails done did and watching Glee (I’d rather stick a taco in my mouth and the Taco-Bell Chihuahua in my ass and let […]

The sticky icky, the green monster, Thelonious Skunk, whatever you call it, today is the unofficial day that potheads and high schoolers the world around celebrate its existence. It should come as no surprise that the Doggfather of Ganj would release another record and video about smoking bud, but this time he is joined by […]

Where’s Weezy? In Jail!

March 2, 2010 by

After a one-month stay for dental surgery (which, if you ask me, was much more painful than anything he is going to experience in prison – the man had 8 root canals, work done on his diamond-encrusted grill, replaced several existing tooth implants, AND added new implants), Weezy is finally headed off to the big […]

Nyle “Let The Beat Build” Video

Easy T sent me this video (courtesy of her main man, Kool Keith) and it seemed worth sharing, so here it is (apparently I was living under a rock and missed this): The artist, Nyle Emerson, did this during his senior year at NYU for a school project. It’s amazing what a $2,000 NYU grant, […]

This is a little late, but perpetually cool human being Erykah Badu has released the video for her second single off the upcoming New Amerykah, Part II: Return of the Ankh. Entitled “Jump in the Air (Stay There)”, the song features my current least-favorite, but globally embraced MC Lil’ Wayne. Both the song and the […]

Ever since Jay-Z first threw up the Diamond Cutter sign (which apparently was stolen from WWE wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, DUH), Dungeons & Dragons lovers everywhere have been speculating about his (and his cohorts’) possible ties to occult secret societies, namely the Illuminati, the Freemasons, and Lucifericists. And with his new video for “On to […]

White Like Me: Loving Hip-Hop from the Outside

December 29, 2009 by

1

It’s the holiday season, and like so many of my 20-something counterparts, I’ve spent the past week at my childhood home, surrounded by family, old friends, good food, better drink,…. and absolutely nothing even remotely related to hip-hop culture. I grew up in the mountains of Western MD, where the dominate musical culture is caught […]

A Rage filled Christmas!

Sorry Simon Cowell, X-Factor winner Joe McElderry, and all you mindless UK American-Idol based program, X-Factor drones—the people have spoken and they are tired of manufactured reality tv celebrities. The voice of their outrage, Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing in the Name”, which is only fitting. Their battle grounds, the coveted top spot on Brittan’s […]
