The plot thickens….
The plot thickens….
White Rap has officially left the “gimmick” category. Or has it?
Here are all three episodes of the Combat Jack interview with the Greatest Southern Rapper of All Time, Brad “Mr. Scarface” Jordan. Part 2 and 3 below.
A list of great violent rap, including everything from broad beating anthems to gun clapping to cannibalism. Good times for all.
Never before have so many shots been fired on a podcast in the space of two hours as Premium Pete and Toure face-off once again. Essential listening.
The Curse Of The Shirtless Rapper is very, very real. Also, pause at the artwork that accompanies this week’s column.
As KRS-One once said: “We’re not done…we’re not done”. After Paypal tried to hate on the Conservative Rap Coalition movement by freezing our account on the grounds that we’re not a “registered charity”, I had to flip the script on the whole operation. Never fear valued members, everything is back on track and we are well on the way to hitting our target in terms of new recruits. If you’ve been a long time reader of the site, it’s time to pony up before I start posting pictures of Kanye and Kim shopping for baby leather kilts.
Combat Jack and Dallas Penn talk to Killer Mike about the making of his R.A.P. Music album with El-P…
The rap food chain is all over the place right now, as weed carriers are suddenly getting top billing…
Just helped out on this piece over at Takin’ Mines:
Released just a week after the one year anniversary of Nas’ Illmatic, Mobb Deep’s Loud debut, The Infamous, is nothing short of a masterpiece. Although historically, Illmatic has been held to the standard as the best rap album of all time, it’s fair to consider The Infamous as the equivalent of Da Vinci’s Virgin and Child with St. Anne, to his former Mona Lisa.. Illmatic. Imagine younger, mischievous twin brothers to your high school’s star quarterback/prom king.. that’s them Mobb Deep boys Hav and P, compared to Esco (yes, even though Nas was wavin’ automatic guns at Nuns). Well enough of the analogies, we’ll leave that to our words and their raps, as featured in today’s special edition of Rewind Wednesdays.
Time to play the “blame game” for all those token love/dance/radio songs that spoil otherwise great albums…
This is good news, it sounds like NORE’s What What is actually going to drop.
Black Thought continues his conversation with Combat Jack (aka Ben Grimm Esq.) and and Dallas Penn (aka Advanced Scarf Technologies) and talks about battling, hearing Illmatic and meeting Supernatural.
More of the raw from Combat Jack, Dallas Penn and the crew talking with Black Thought, who drops some show-stealing rhymes at the end. Concludes with a third episode at the end of the week.
Debut of The Combat Jack Show on Complex TV, where Dallas Penn, Combat Jack, Premium Pete and Just Blaze deliver that same type of in-depth interview technique with rap legends as they do on the podcast, only with less booze and better lighting. To set things off, Black Thought from The Roots talks about the time they had that issue with Nas following their involvement with Spike Lee‘s Bamboozled. Chea!
