Well now, the MC who presumably can do no wrong has ran into legal trouble over an allegedly sample used for his standout street single, “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2”, featuring Jay Z.  The sample in question is the notable intro: Good God Almighty.

    Hitting Queensbridge projects with Nas’ younger brother Jungle was definitely one of the more memorable experiences that I’ve had in hip-hop. Going back to Nas’ childhood and actually standing where he lived as a kid definitely sent chills through my body. Like many, getting introduced to Illmatic when I was 14 was unforgettable. In these outtake clips you can see how we actually ran into the kid who lives in Nas’ and Jungle’s old apartment.

    This is being passed around Facebook as an NYPD officer jumping into a dance cypher. The truth is this NYPD officer isn’t a real cop – it’s Joshua Vinyard aka Elusive; stuntman and b-boy. This took place on the set of Amazing Spiderman 2 where it would appear Vinyard is playing a cop. Dude gets busy for real maybe the real NYPD should take lessons instead of taking away people’s civil rights. Yup I said it.

    20 Apr 2014 | 5:32 pm
    Photographer, Terry Richardson, has been in hot water for his sexual advances before but he has always denied the accusations. Models, actresses, etc. have accused him of masturbating in front of them, shooting them while he was nude or just outright asking them for sex in exchange for their shoots. But when it all boiled down to it, Richardson has claimed that the accusations are, “an emotionally charged witch hunt.” Well once again, Richardson is being accused of some racy stuff. Model, Emma Appleton, has not only accused Richardson of offering her a Vogue photoshoot in exchange…

  • Movie Review : Captain America the Winter Soldier

    8 Apr 2014 | 4:53 pm
    Thor 2 aside , Marvel keeps getting closer to getting it right and the sequel to Captain America comes the closest yet. I liked the first movie and in someways think it stands out from this one in the way it juxtaposed the two time period where this movie comes across like a straight up action flick, a more over the top version of one of the Bourne films. This over the top element it what a comic book movie needs. A good question to ask is if this was in the pages of the book would it be a good read? This felt closer to the comic book than previous marvel films, with the first Iron Man, right…
  • The Next Big Thing ? : Plastic Yellow Band’s Breathe Air

      Singer songwriter Gerald Jennings, offers a different take on Brit Pop. Bands Oasis and the Verve tended to hover around where the Beatles went while they were together, Jennings explores what happened when they went their separate ways and released solo material. Like the projects name suggests of all the Fab four this owes the most to John, though I can hear some Ringo in the mix as well. This is rather low key psychedelia, not too far removed from Pink Floyd’s more radio friendly moments of Jeff Lynne  or even Ringo Starr’s All-Star Band. The winks at Lennon are done…

      Its time for your education  in dance music. Before EDM or even  house music there was disco, it took funk and soul and kept it up all night long snorting coke and rolled up in polyester.  My friends over at True Groove  who are putting out some of the most solid jams coming from  New York these days carry on the tradition with young singer Lael Summer  in their fold. Her influences are clearly dipped in the soul classics of the 70′s, there is a disco queen feel at times , without being  too divalicious.  Not just sugared out pop Lael has a mean streak  and street…

    I had an opportunity to attend an artist concert series featuring George Tandy, Jr.   I arrived to a packed room…no seats left!  Before seeing him, I could hear the melodic sounds of his strong yet gentle voice singing “I will do you right this time”.  I was captivated.   His vocal delivery had me and every other woman in the building, catching feelings, yet, I knew he wasn’t just singing the promise of “doing right” to us.  No, in fact, George Tandy Jr. was making this declaration to all of his fans and to the music scene holistically.  There is no…

    This former Singapore based artist relocated to Austin Texas ” Weightless With You” recalls 90′s alt-rock in many ways. The vocals are the strongest part of the album and the mix suggests it was intentional to put the vocals up front in your face. This guys influence range from David Lee Roth to Chris Cornell. The drums on this album are often the unsung hero and they work their way around the rather simplistic guitar lines that are living wide breadth for the vocals. Things back off on “Nora 5″ and his more sedate moments remind me at times of Lenny Kravitz…

I recognized the beat from one of my favorite soundtracks, Dead Presidents.

  • New Joint: "The Street" - Fortunato feat. Grhymes, Notez & Realistic (Prod. By Blanxx Of The Lost Info)

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Toronto based rap artist Fortunato puts together a good cast for this all Canadian hip hop collaboration. "The Street" is a really dope cut, produced by Blanxx of The Lost Info.Here's a great description of the track:Dark haunting melodies intertwine with tales from the hood in this cross country collaboration. Veteran MC Fortunato brings together Vancouver's own Grhymes who serenades the listener with an infectious hook while MC's Notez and Realistic of Toronto's infamous Teesdale projects and KOTD fame illustrate everyday life on the street with vivid lyricism. Production is provided…

  • Kanye West Gets Fired Up in an Interview with Zane Lowe

    Peter Tran
    3 Oct 2013 | 11:39 pm
    The infamous Kanye West and Zane Lowe interview.I finally got a chance to listen to Kanye West’s long interview with Zane Lowe of BBC Radio and see what the fuss was all about that made it worthy of a comedic spoof from Jimmy Kimmel and then an ensuing Twitter name-calling feud between the two. Zane Lowe invited Kanye West for a chat about the Yeezus album and rap music in general, but got way more than he had asked for. Kanye clearly had some things to get off his chest and wasn’t interested in just talking about the album or even about music at all. He gave quite an intense…
  • Drake - Hold On, We’re Going Home

    Peter Tran
    28 Sep 2013 | 5:32 am
    Drake takes parallels between the rap game and the mafia to a whole new level. The story takes place in 1985 and begins with a celebration of success (a great cameo from A$AP Rocky). We see Drake’s love interest get kidnapped in what could only be Drake’s own home. Drake gets the call while celebrating with his cohorts at the club and celebration turns into retaliation and rescue mission. As the story unfolds, we also learn that there is an internal traitor. Everything culminates to the most intense exchange of gunfire between two gangs that I’ve ever seen in a rap video. It…

    The final season of The Boondocks is here. Unfortunately, the bad news is Aaron McGruder gave up his power behind his popularized cartoon to work on his new project, Black Jesus. This is definitely going to be interesting on how this season is going to play out. This is definitely going to be ‘the fall of Woodcrest’. If you notice in the trailer above, you will catch a parody of Breaking Bad, and the return… of Stinkmeaner? I’m curious about how they’re going to explain that one. The season starts Monday night, so tune in! Related posts: ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:…

    18 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    Brother Beatbox and Deeflux return with the entertaining/humorous visual for Got That, a single off their upcoming 5 track Ep Rawganic. The two suspects step into the kitchen or lab (if you will) to cook up (literally) something for the fans out there and they do take their work seriously. Blending timeless records, kicks, and then some, they eventually come up with something tasty at the end of the session. I won’t give it all away so hit the play button to get the full gist. The EP Rawganic drops on the 28th of this month so keep it locked on WIB. Written & performed by Brother…
