Boiler Room TV presents a new episode this week featuring ?uestlove behind the boards. The entire set is a tribute to J-Dilla and features some unheard Roots rehearsal tracks of Dilla beats.

I picked this little gem up yesterday at Unique Thrift. We all remember the classic film; but what about the album it inspired? This late 90′s comp included the likes of Will Smith, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Ginuwine, a young Alicia Keys, The Roots, D’Angelo, Trey Lorenz (his name will..
A smooth jam from The Game and hometown hero Wale. I’ve never been the biggest Cool and Dre fan, but this might actually redeem them from the travesty that was Celebration (real Bone Thugs fans feel me on that). Who is that singing in the background? Cool or Dre? Some..

He’s a fellow DMV person and a rapper that is definitely worth discovering. He sounds a bit like Big Pun, but with a heavy..
Another year, another BET Hip Hop Awards. I’m not sure who the genius behind the idea of the Cypher portion of the show is, but that mofo has had me watching BET (albeit once a year) for the last 3 years. But enough about me, let’s break down the performances:..
The good folks at Three/21 Media (Rik Cordero and them) just put out a new mixtape of classic Beastie Boys tracks. A lot of the material on here is not their most popular work so don’t go looking for “Fight for Your Right” or “Sabotage” cause you won’t find it...
