Michael Moore's Slacker Uprising is available online... for free. Word is this is the first full length feature film to be given away for free and legal online.

Via Tunji:

Here's the trailer for Let's Get Free: The Black August Hip Hop Project, featuring performance and interview footage from Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, dead prez and more.

The Black August Hip Hop Project strives to promote human rights though supporting and influencing the global development of Hip Hop culture. By facilitating exchanges between international communities where Hip Hop is a vital part of youth culture, they promote awareness about the social and political issues that affect our global communities. Their vision is to bring culture and politics together and to allow them to naturally evolve into a unique Hip Hop consciousness that informs our collective struggle for a more just, equitable and human world. This film documents the movement through a series of interviews and performances with hip hop artists and key members of the black activist movement.

Watch out for his first mixtape, Untamed Beast, as well as his Troubles of the World album, which should be dropping early 2009.

Where's A Different World?

1 Comment »

Of the many hours of TV my wife and I watch, we don't watch a lot of the same shows. Two of the shows we have enjoyed immensely together are The Cosby Show and A Different World. A few weeks back, she made mention to me about how she read that, while Season 1 dropped on DVD, subsequent seasons have been held in limbo. Doing some research on Wikipedia, I found this, saying that Urban Works, the company that owned the rights to release these, was bought out by First Look Studios back in 2006. Digging deeper, I read that, while it was intially set to drop, Season 2's DVD release got cancelled with no word on if/when it would be brought back. What's good with that?

I hit up the First Look site, and tried calling the number in their Contact Us section. Error message? I noticed an e-mail address, and sent a pretty detailed message asking for info, and ended up getting it blocked by their spam filter. Now, this company has also released The Cosby Show, as well as Baywatch, in the last few years, on DVD. Why not A Different World? Is this just a mess up with the rights and licenses, or is it deeper? Do they not think a show of this caliber will make money with the demographic it reached (urban youth from the late 80s/early 90s, college students, fans of The Cosby Show, etc.)? BET has shown reruns over the last few months, as have Oxygen and other channels... how could a DVD release of the remaining seasons NOT get put out?

I am two steps from starting up a petition on this, but I want to know that fans of the series are with me on this, wondering where this show will end up in the end. Pass this on, leave a comment, let's get together on ths one!

EDIT: Right before posting this, I noticed TransGriot has the same idea, in longer detail, explaining Viacom's thoughts on putting this out (poor sales of Season 1 = not coming out). We need to get organized...

Shouldn't he be pointing this at ignorant ass niggas who don't know their history, as opposed to "YouTube commenters"? I feel what he's saying, but that's just ignorance.

John Legend ft. Kanye West & Pharrell "It's Over"

John Legend ft. Kanye West & Pharrell "It's Over": I know a lot of heads posted up the radio rip, but the homey Benzi says that this version is a bit different... and will be up on the next DDS shipment, as well as on John's Evolver. I actually avoided the radio rip, but I'm feeling this right now.

Via BGDB. Flex, you kick that real shit time and again, and this is the realest thing I've ever heard from you, and I applaud you for it. That's why this nasty nigga doesn't get any positive play on rock the dub - his fucking molester ass was ON TAPE PISSING ON CHILDREN! Be forreal with yourselves if you choose to stick up for this lame cat. Fuck R. Kelly.

G-Christ Damage Is Done EP

No Comments »

Shouts to MOS of Crew54 for hitting me off with this. I had this EP on during my commute to work this morning, and was pleasantly surprised. Most of the time, niggas will hit you off with shit and it will come off as too-similar to stuff that's out, but G-Christ has his own sense of humor, and the beats are knockin'! Nice use of ill samples... just a dope FREE project for you to devour.

No Comments »

If you've peeped my blog at all, you've seen mad posts with Black ELement featured. On the cusp of his release of A Major Minority (which is now set to drop on September 25th, just so Black can iron things out and get it 100% in his mind), he's linked with Dub Floyd and illRoots to drop the first volume of the Missing ELements mixtape, chronicling the leaks Black threw out in anticipation of AMM., as well as 4 album cuts AND some rare joints, all expertly blended by Floyd.

E.A.R.T.H. "Feelin' Alive"

No Comments »

E.A.R.T.H. "Feelin' Alive": Everything Around Revolves Thru Hip-Hop has been a group I wanted to get on my Lighthouse Project, but never got word back. Seems to be my dealings with them... love their work, set up to do something, and for whatever reason it falls through. Imagine my surprise when I got passed "Feelin' Alive" in my MySpace inbox. This is one of those tracks where you can't help but rejoice, even though life can be shitty at times, you gotta keep that focus and still strive to do you. Money and capitalism can be a bitch, but getting that frustration out with your art? Nothing better...

E.A.R.T.H. Crew, get at me!

Kanye West "Love Lockdown"

No Comments »

Kanye West "Love Lockdown": So this is the new single from Kanye's 808's & Heartbreak, and I can't hate this anymore than I do now. Actually, if he had T-Pain singing the chorus, with Lil' Wayne doing a auto-tune'd 16 about Superhead, I'd probably REALLY hate this. I truly hope the rest of the album (which hits stores December 16th) doesn't sound this ridiculous.

EDIT: Here's the mastered version. Shouts to BoBO.

Big Shug "Like A Muhfucka" (prod. by DJ Premier): While any other MC could do a whole track ending each line with "like a muhfucka", not every MC is Big Shug, nor or all of them produced by DJ Premier.

Johnny Polygon "Black In The Back" (prod. by Green Lantern): Johnny Polygon is the cat you probably heard first on Nas' "Black President"; Green Lantern has taken homeboy under his wing, and is bringing his work to us... interesting stuff, not the normal cuts you'd expect from Green. Check out this Polygon track about one of my favorite things... and while you're out it, check out the commercial for Wolf In Cheap Clothing:
