Roc Marci is in the building… and the only one of his UN comrades who kept it pushing in the music grind. But Roc keeps in touch with the homies regardless (good). Hear him talk about “Rosebudd’s Revenge” (the album), being his own boss, loving that West Coast living and more.
Yoooo! When Bill Nye said, ‘Science is political,’ he must have meant for us to take that LITERALLY! Scientists are running for office folks. They are not just sitting by as politicians try to roll back protections for the environment and wage a ‘war on facts’… they are fighting back… with the ballot! Leadership from the scientific community. Cool!
Been official that “Come Down” was a hit. But remixxing it somehow makes us wanna say it’s official… again! Guess that is what a remix is s’posed to do, huh? Haaa! Check it out. This one includes Ty Dolla $ign and ScHoolboy Q in on the jam.
Watching the trailer for “The Making Of: Strength Of A Woman” (debuting on VH1, May 2nd at 11pm EST) you get a sense that Mary J. Blige is laying it all on the line in a few ways. First, she mentions a couple of times that this “Strength Of A Woman” project she is dropping is about healing herself; sharing her struggles, not prescribing or preaching for anyone else. That more than infers a second; Mary putting her business all the way out there (which she has done before, but that “that’s my Becky With The Good Hair” line implies some SCANDALOUS storytelling is in store). Third, The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul declares that this LP is the ‘real Mary‘… almost like a love-it-or-leave-it decision point will be laid out for the fans who cop. Risky, but hey, it’s Mary J; so folks will likely love it.
Now, we’d be pound foolish not to mention the coup of leveraging Mary’s brand in pushing an ‘album documentary’ timed around the release of “Strength Of A Woman” on VH1 where her target audiences (longtime fans of hers AND longtime fans of reality show level DRAMA) will be watching. Plus, peep all the contributors’ cameos, from Diddy to DJ Khaled.
There’s a reason the Queen is the most powerful attacking piece on the board. The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul is on the move, starting with tomorrow’s release of “Strength Of A Woman” followed by this tell-everything documentary on May 2nd.
Breaking Glass Pictures got the rights to this Puerto Rican indie drama and is planning to put it on some U.S. screens; in theaters, then making video-on-demand and DVDs available in June. Check out the trailer for “La Granja” (Not Safe For Work) above.
Damn. All that… from a random horse-in-a-park sighting. If this movie is anything like the trailer teases, it is WORTHY!
Good conversation. And hella cool? Which part, you ask, is cool? That funk pioneer George Clinton and Killer Mike have a barbershop sit down? That they do it at Mike’s place – the SWAG Shop? That two legends still living the dream thought enough of us to film this realness?
Yes. All of that is hella cool. Watch!
Bit of semisweet memory lane traveling at the start and end of this. Not together, but cool with wifey Faith Evans. This is her and Biggie together again on track. Here’s “Legacy.” Posted earlier on here, “The King & I” is linked below.
Powerful posthumous heat from the late great J Dilla with some assist on the production by J Rocc and lyrical content delivered by Bussa Buss and Leader Quest Q-Tip. Check out this previously unreleased “Motor City” blend from the album (linked below).
The late, great J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. Since his death in 2006, Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey has worked tirelessly to further her son’s legacy, and her latest effort is the new project Motor City. Inspired by Dilla’s beloved hometown, Motor City is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, hand-selected and sequenced by Ma Dukes. Conceived as a “letter” to her son, Motor City is packaged in a limited-edition mailing envelope, complete with a handwritten message from Ma Dukes to J Dilla inside. This 19-track collection will be available at physical and digital outlets worldwide on April 21st, 2017.
JU-ELLLLZZZ! Hahaaa! You can tell that this is an East-Meets-West SMOKEFEST if ever there was one just from the title and the lineup. Santana doing the devilment with The DoggFather and Khalifa Kush Pusher on “Mr. Weedman” *cough cough* Check it out *COUGH* Good sh!t *COUGH CHOKE*
So… you don’t have to travel all the way to the Down Under for that special underground feel. But doesn’t it sound like that’s where some crazy dopeness should jump off all the time? Well, agree or agree to disagree, it did a week or so ago. Nas did “Hate Me Now” on stage (classic, that good gas)… with The Soul Rebels backing him (that high-performance premium unleaded)! Check the footage from Byron Bay Bluesfest, Australia.

Don’t gotta tell you that it don’t get much more East Coast than Philadelphia Freeway and Harlem’s own Dave East, do we? ‘Cause it don’t! Boom bappage on the track that got damaged provided by DJ Skizz.
Nas getting down on “The Get Down Part II” soundtrack with this jawn “Angels With Dirty Faces.” iTunes credits the song to “Nasir Jones as Mr. Books,” as in one of the characters on the Netflix series.
Yes. We have posted on flying car tech, but this car right here ninja… this looks straight outta Star Wars… Trek… GI Joe! True vertical take-off and landing in a sleek design. Usually, we’d expect this to be a military thing for some time before it becomes a civilian product for consumption. But naaaaah son. LOOK at WHERE they are demoing this; right on the roadway!
Flying cars, that perennial dream for futurists that always seem to be at least five years away, may be a little closer to reality than we realize. A lot of prototypes have been showcased recently, and a lot of money is being tossed around. More people than ever seem to buy into the crazy notion that in the near future we’ll be buzzing between rooftops in private, autonomous drones. Today, Munich-based Lilium Aviation announced an important milestone: the first test flight of its all-electric, two-seater, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) prototype.

Oh, did we mention that it’s all-ELECTRIC!! Duuuude! No gas. Imagine charging this with solar power and flying with no fossil fuel use or emissions. BOOM!
