Everything Is Almatic

Another year another mash-up...

This time Nas with the Reverend Al Green.

It actually manages to make 'Oochie Wally' quite listenable, which is no mean feat.

You can get the tracks individually here or you can download the job lot here or you can get a taste of it over at the Myspace page.

It's made by DJ Swindle who also brought us 80 Cent and Bobb Deep and Frank Lyon, who didn't make those other mash-ups but must have done something...

If you like it buy it...

Pharoahe Monch - Gun Draws

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

It honestly doesn't get any more 'gangsta' than this...

Styles P, has been involved in an 'incident'.

You know the 'normal' publicity seeking attempts that rappers go through, usually getting shot, shooting someone or getting arrested for having a gun or drugs in their car?

Well Styles has come up with the best yet, so much so I would take my hat off to him if I was indeed wearing one...

He's been involved in a 'road rage' incident, which involves him throwing napkins and having his leg broken by a 50 year old...

More here.

Nas Interview With Flex...

It seems some people are being overly defensive over the title of Nas' album (see the previous post.)

There's all the rah-rah about how Hip Hop is alive and well, Nas is attacking the South, Nas killed it and he's 10 years too late... Whatever. Seriously, listen to the track 'Hip Hop Is Dead', "If Hip Hop should die before I wake..." You getting it yet?

This interview should either make it clearer or just wind people up into even more of a frenzy...

Thanks to Miss Info for making it available...
