Same horn sample DJ Premier used on Blaq Poet’s “Don’t Give A Fuccc,” but it goes in a totally different direction. Premo flipped it mad militant while Statik Selektah skews it nostalgic for an appropriate backdrop to AZ’s street knowledge. Off Doe or Die: 15th Anniversary Edition, out November 23...
Today marks the kickoff of the Voodoo Experience in the heart of New Orleans. ML is taking this year off, but we have had documented an amazing time in years past. Even though we aren’t going it doesn’t mean we can’t recommend some acts, amiright?! Ticket’s are still available, trust me..
(image) …a guy committed suicide on the train that we were riding. We saw him when he was dead, right in front of us. When you’re in fifth grade, that’s the story to tell your friends: “Yo, man, we saw somebody kill themselves on our train, and his arm was..
Last seen on Kanye West’s “Devil in a New Dress,” Bink! ventures West on this track from Cypress Hill’s SmokeOut compilation. So dope. Download: Bink! – Smoke Sumthin (ft. Ras Kass, Kurupt, Young De) via HRSMN Sphere: Related Content

(image) It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Los Angeles electronic producer Daedelus once went on tour with Madvillain and J Dilla. His idea of a guilty pleasure is music from the 1930s. Every other picture of him shows him hunched over a monome (look it up). He’ll go on..
Kanye West premieres his Runaway movie, then steals the show at the Brooklyn Bowl, all in one Saturday.
This whole weekend I have been laid up sick (my cold is perfectly coinciding with next level/amazing weather occurring right out side of my sunroom). There was one good thing about this however; I was able to work my fingers into tip-top shape with the TV remote buttons and clicking..
Finally a song from Co$$’ new project I can get behind. Co$$ and Freddie Gibbs looks like an odd pairing but it makes sense considering they both have a sense of urgency in their flows. The dramatic soul sample seals it. Revelations drops tomorrow. Download: Co$$ – Gone (ft. Freddie..
Here’s one more track off 1982 which drops October 26. Term raps about the nightmares of the hood, savoring every graphic detail. It’s hard to believe this comes from the same album as “You Should Go Home.” By themselves, both songs work, but this kind of incongruity is usually reserved..
