Props to RR via NQM.
Madlib's horns, Mos' mic, rings and attire... this feels like a Hip-Hop show from back in the '50s. Who knows where this is coming from or where it'll end up. Just savor the moment.

And for those who need some Biggie in their lives, here's episode 16 of rockthedub radio, which was my ode to The Notorious B.I.G. - lots of people dug this mix, so I figured I'd share with you today. Jadakiss and Puff also spoke out about Biggie during this time, and Chairman Mao even posted Biggie's final interview in The Source; do me a favor and take a half our out and celebrate Big's excellence. REST IN POWER, BIGGIE!

Double Dragon = i-EL (aka Ilyas) and Juice Lee. Looks like they dropped a project, Double Dragon 2K11, last month. Lovin' it. Each track definitely references another video game. Features Jermiside, Mega Ran and Stella. Win. Shouts to Meka for the heads up.

The jam you hear in this video is R.O.E.'s "Starship", taken from A Backpacker Named R.O.E., which I've been waiting to drop on you lot. This Friday, the wait ends, as this BPA affiliate is finally ready to let the world into his cipher. I've been a fan of his since The Lightouse Project, and being able to be a part of his growth and presentation is awesome. Get familiar!

jayZ shoots his brother, dealt coke, stabs rival producer in '99, but now "legit famous" b/o wealth and famous wife. Redmption or ridculous?less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®Chris Cuomo
Earlier today on twitter, ABC's Chris Cuomo brought some interesting questions about Jay-Z's rise to fame, given the path he chose.
I like the music, I root for people to overcome, but I must ask what qualifies as "success". Most overcome hard life w/o gangbanging/drugsless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®Chris Cuomo
I read a lot of people getting heated at Chris, but truthfully, quality music aside, shouldn't we all be asking these questions of our artists? I won't get into a grandiose debate/rant about glorifying stereotypes and negativity, but I immediately thought about how some people might immediately put Hov in a different basket, because he might not speak as ignorant as a Gudda Gudda or whatever. At it's basis, they're both highlighting the same things in life, but one is seen as a remedial rapper, while Jay might be seen as more of an intellectual.
@jodivpei I did. Not judging, but "victim" label odd. I know too many who overcome poverty w/o turning to crime. Why not celebrate them?less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®Chris Cuomo
I respect Hov's ability, and get his story. I personally just wish there was a balance in who got highlighted and why for. Big up Chris Cuomo for the dialogue.
