Something Awful has an amazing collection of No Limit style album covers made for seemingly unlikely artists like They Might Be Giants, Elton John & the Wiggles. It’s done for their weekly Photoshop feature, Photoshop Phriday.
Absolutely frickin’ brilliant, well worth a look. Pictured above, the Mamas & the Papas.
Late pass please! I just saw this on E!, it looks like Hip Hop has FINALLY infiltrated young kids television programming with Hip Hop Harry. I can see it now, kids during recess claiming they are hip-hop cause they watch this. But why isn’t there a Rock N’ Roll Robby or Country Chuck??
Anyway here is a magical clip dealing with dried apples:
For some reason, I think Soulja Boy’s agent better be on the phone right now trying to holla at HHH’s (no wwf) people.
Damn, I haven’t done one of these in a minute! I missed Remix Tuesdays too this week, I’m sorry y’all. I’m in Florida chilling right now and I get a bit lazy.
Anyway, I was checking for places to listen to DJ Premier’s Sirius radio show, Live at HeadQCourterz when I stumbled across the show’s MySpace. They have playlists available for the most recent shows and while I was reading the playlist for last week’s show, I found this:
Kool G. Rap(f. Haylie Duff)–"On The Rise"—(Half A Klip)—-(Latchkey)
I did a double take and checked Wikipedia and they seem to have the same track listed for Half A Klip. Then I went to G Rap’s label Chinga Chang Records’ MySpace and they had a radio rip from Live at HQ of the track streaming. Then I found the image posted above, apparently the single cover.
We’ve covered Rappers I Know beforeat ML, but we never need a good reason to post about them. They just rolled out their podcast earlier this month, with the first instalment hosted by Kay of the Foundation.
They brought out the second instalment the day on Christmas Eve (like my Hebraic ass would know!) and Kay is joined by DJ Signify in hosting duties. Listen to streaming audio here.

Also: watch this spot for some upcoming goodness involving Rappers I Know, Metal Lungies & an associate blog of ours. No spoilers but it’s going to be pretty dope.
I didn’t actually cop this. Rather, my brother copped it for me. Its the life story of MF Grimm. The format is a comic book and is spans his whole career (up to American Hunger). Very interesting stuff. I didn’t even know dude was on Sesame Street?!
Seems like kind of a downer at the end, but Grimm seems positive. Read it. You’ll see.
Inspired by our friends at Hip Hop Is Read and Oscar Peterson’s recent passing, here’s a tribute to all the great artists we lost in 2007. Musicians, writers, directors, and more. This isn’t everyone who died in ’07 (you can view that list here), just those that affected us at ML specifically.
Let us know who you are mourning in the comments. Mourn with us.
I know AM put up something a bit ago.. but I HAD to use this picture (note: YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST ON THE INTERNETS!). Enjoy some videos on how Prisoners spend their Christmas + Others, after the jump. Back Wednesdayish…
A Bay Area duo, Bash Bros, that I don’t know a whole lot about shot a video for their great song “Joy Riden”. I was hipped to it by the excellent GRANDGOOD, who first put up the song on volume 28 of their regularly posted audiocast.
I’m diggin’ the production on this, by a cat named Style MiSia. He’s currently set to produce the entirety of their upcoming album, “Main Event”, due out next year.
This song is the street single off “Main Event”, which also features appearances from Sean Price, Pumpkinhead, Big Pooh of LB, among others.
You can check out more material by the Bash Bros at their official website or their MySpace and download songs by the group, including “Joy Riden”.
Prior to signing with Def Jam, you would release an album about every two years. Do you just have more material these days or did you want more exposure?
GFK: Yeah, just put ‘em out there. Before I did Fishscale, I was puffing a lot of weed and all that other shit. That shit makes you take a while to do things. The way the game is now, if you’re gone for a couple years people kind of forget about you. I just wanted to go ahead and go in so I could keep that torch burning. I don’t want to miss being in the people’s presence.
Ghost on the “Who would you fuck?” skit from Supreme Clientele:
DX: Yeah. Did you ever catch any backlash from that one?
GFK: I saw them, but nobody said anything though. You can’t really do that shit no more because these chicks got babies now. Even back then they probably had husbands and you’re saying, “Who would you fuck?” and then naming their wife. It was good for what it was back then. I saw all them, but ain’t nobody gonna say nothing.
Also, where SOHH.com had Ghost blog for them, HHDX has a blog from Brooklyn Bodega where he tells a story about going to Big Doe Rehab with Ghost. Pretty funny shit and it’s accompanied by some ill illustrations by Jimmy Blags aka James Blagden (he did the Ghost drawing posted at the top of this post). Check out some of his art here, I really dig his stuff.
Why is this even a single?! The video may be the best or worst thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t even know yet. Check For:
Big Words (a la Money in the Bank)
Discovery Channel Gags
Robbery Scenes with smoky suitcases
Old men wizards
Crew Shots in Paintings
Young Dude doing magic
An adlib that tells you to “Bungee Jump, or something”
And much more….
After all that, I have to ask. Why is Styles P sleeping on a bench? Thats not hard. Thats homeless.
