Seriously rivalled only by the infamous “thugginest” interview with NORE (we’ve linked to this twice already, but it never gets old.) HipHopGame’s latest interview with two-time Beat Drop honouree Alchemist is about a week old, but it’s so damn entertaining that I’m posting it anyway. Alc drops knowledge on getting..
Browsing through the Crate Kings archives, I came across this mini documentary about the Fat Beats location in New York, hosted by the legendary (and Beat Drop Contributing) DJ Eclipse. Pretty interesting. They also did a slightly more generic documentary on the store while back that’s worth checking out too...
Something new from the last good member of the Unit. I really liked the original, and Banks definitely respects the song enough to rip it. I’ve always thought that Lloyd Banks had what it takes to be one of the best. But as long as he stays on the Unit,..
Fascinating story behind this beautiful animated interview with John Lennon, courtesy of Current. In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview.

Copped this a few days back while roaming the new Harris Teeter back in the ol’ DMV. Immediately this has become my non-alchoholic beverage of choice. From what I gather, this has been only launched in a few select markets in the States, after selling like hot cakes tea? in..
Hold up for a second. Forget all that bullshit assclownery going on in music right now. Forget Souljah Boy. Forget auto-tune. Sit down. Pour yourself a classy drink (ginger ale and rye is always a good choice) and sit down in a comfy chair. Lee Morgan has something he’d like..
I got an email a few days ago from Chicago emcee Nico B promoting this EP he put together. I don’t normally post stuff by people who don’t reach out to me directly, but this album is ill. Sabada Gigante is Nico’s tribute to salsa legend Hector Lavoe, produced entirely..
Image Source I should really go to OKP more often than I do, and this REALLY reminded me so. ?uestlove had a thread where he told stories and anecdotes on various famous people as requested by OKPers. Let’s just say the results are classic, I spent a good hour reading..
Via the Unofficial DJ Premier Blog Laura Izibor is an Irish soul singer signed to Atlantic Records. DJ Premier remixed her track “From My Heart To Yours” for a single, which is how I found out about her. Honestly, I think this is the best pop record Premo’s done. Feel..
We’ve been building it up a bit (we’ve probably featured dude enough to earn his own category), and finally the track listing and artwork for ML fam Black ELement’s debut are here. Catch us after the jump for a video of EL breaking down his album on 1. You Can’t..
