Madlib- WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip (Review)

The loop digga is back with his new album for the BBE Beat Generation series. This new project has a bunch of features and many of the tracks are only produced by Madlib with no rhyme input. I really enjoyed this new album even though I only got part of..

Artscape: Review (Sunday).

So DJ01 and I went to Artscape for Sunday only. Mostly because neither of us own cars, and public transportation to Baltimore is a crime on the weekends (or anytime for that matter). I was able to borrow a car on Sunday, so we made the trip. After a stop..

The Walkmen- You & Me, Review.

I like to drink in the afternoon. Maybe even more so than at nighttime. And I am not saying I like to get drunk midday cause that would make me a loser, right? Im saying that having some beer with your buddies on a blistering hot day provides me with..

Lil Wayne Tha Carter III Review

I’ve been contemplating on this one for a while now. Weiss likes it. Pitchfork likes it. And many others feel the same way. To begin with, its a good record. The fact that weez has been spittin more nonsense than bill o’ reilly over the last few months has been..

Al Green (Prod by ?uestlove)-Lay it Down

Once upon a time, Al Green taught the world how to treat a lady.  The silky grooves on “Lets Stay Together” are testements to the undying nature of true love, plus they are really bitchin tunes.  Back in the day, my father was clearly moved by the hopefulness of the..

Review: Strange Breaks & Mr. Thing.

When I got this I was confused. I didn’t think people did this anymore. Initially I gave it a quick pass, and blew it off as a set of good, obscure dance tracks. That is not the purpose of a break tape though. So, last night, I took some of..

Voodoo Festival 2007 Review.

Ed Note: We were supposed to head out to the Voodoo Festival, but last minute plans got in the way of that. Luckily we had ML homie & NO native Randon step in and file this report & photos: Yo, what up to all the Metal Lungies out there. Recently..

Honda Battle of the Bands ‘Stompin at the Dome’ DVD (Review).

Told you this was coming. Hopefully you got your emails out to but you still have time (considering there is no time limit…) The legacy of HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) is a very rich and diverse one. Every institution came up under different circumstances but the results are..

DJ Statik Selektah-Spell My Name Right (Review)

[Dj01 Note- You just read the tracklisting? now the review is ready, you know how we do!] Just who is Statik Selektah? I mean we’ve all heard his mixtapes, we’ve all heard the vocal drops on his music, but just who is this guy? A quick glance at Wikipedia and..

Strong Arm Steady – Deep Hearted (Review)

Over a year ago, blogger god (bloggod?) Noz pointed out how up-and-coming solo MCs appear less and less willing to go the group route to establish themselves, and everybody wants to jump ahead and be the next somebody, or the first themselves. A year later, and it’s the same shit,..
