03/Hive & The Upbeats "Nothing Scared" [dutty DNB Beats.]
04/Sadat X "The Post" [see MCs, it's very easy to make up Hip-Hop tracks... just pick up the Post and rap about it.]

Some interesting music news this week...

01/Who knew that Michael Caine was not only into "Chill-Out" music, but that he was compiling a CD of it?!
02/Why would ANYONE turn down ?uestlove's request to DJ a gig - FOR FREE!?!?
03/Days of the Leak, an article on pre-release music culture in Spin.
04/Enigmatik has been going in, throwing up Wu-Tang related posts all week. Even linked this slick Raekwon interview with HipHopDX - No OB4CL2 this year?!
05/Yellow Nigga says no Detox from Dr. Dre until at least 2008... I agree with his "release it now or we'll forget about it" stance.
06/XXL also interviewed Skillz. He needs to get a serious break.

I can't even begin to express how wrong this Disco D article in The Village Voice is, for I was not that close nor do I have close ties to D, but it's absurd to think that THAT is how they'd like to go about it.

In rememberance and tribute, here's D's Hustle Harder trailer:

right, i thought the article was a bit negative and tried to assume too many conclusions

My older brother wrote that!
What's the deal, man? What was wrong with it?
I'm not attacking you or anything, just curious.

khal said...

seemed to dwell too much on the negative... i don't doubt your brother did research, but it seemed kind of one sided - glossing over dude's talents to expose the downfall, which is a needed story, but too much yang, not enough ying IMHO.

also, the fucking cover was ridiculous.

AaronM said...

That's fair, man. I can feel that.
Also, totally agreed on the cover. that's pretty fuckin' vile.
And definitely something big bro had nothing to do with.

Also, I highly recommend this post on bounce/oz if you want a great post on D's talent.
