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 would recommend just downloading the podcast, instead of watching the whole video. These broadcasts always contain a..

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..
Chances are David Geffen has had some sort of effect on your life (HE BIRTHED ASYLUM, THE LABEL GUCCI MANE IS SIGNED TO), the man is kind of a big deal. PBS dropped a documentary on him last week while you were scrambling home for Thanksgiving, I was floored after..
