Unkut TV: Episode 22 – Special Ed Live In Philly
Following the Kool G Rap & DJ Polo set at Treasures in Philly, Special Ed took to the stage and performed “Think About It”, “Crooklyn”, “Come On Let’s Move It” and “I Got It Made”. Basically half of the crowd had gone outside for a smoke by the time he hit the stage, but Ed’s female fans were in full effect regardless.

A Frozen Files radio exclusive from last month, this is destined for the UN Or U Out re-release next year with a few other cuts that only did the rounds on bootlegs.
Raekwon – A Rainy Day
It’s not “Rainy Dayz 2″ but it works regardless. Actually, let’s just avoid any rap part two’s not involving Mobb Deep.

A Look At Seven Veteran Rap Bloggahs First Posts
A decade ago, the magic of the Blogger platform allowed many an aspiring rap message board warrior step into the big leagues and pull themselves up by their bootstraps to become the media big dogs that they are today. The characters covered here have risen to the ranks of published authors, college professors, internets celebrities, Tumblr cult leaders and even presidents of important international movements. Let’s take a look back at some early rap blog gawds…

New Action Bronson tape with Party Supplies is available here for free ninety nine. Unclear at this stage why Action is listed as a guest on his on project on track 16. Also, sad face that the Cam’ron feature didn’t happen.

Outstanding track from Boldy James‘ My First Chemistry Set album, produced by the Alchemist and set to the visuals of a dive bar at 4 am, where a couple of long-haired young space cadets attempt to win the affections of an equally intoxicated red-head.
The Unkut Guide To Milk Dee Videos
Despite having a voice that can shatter glass and sends packs of stray dogs running for the hills, Milk Dee has built an entire career on the back of one song, which he then managed to sample or reference in every single thing since. Unlike most unfortunate 80′s rappers on indy labels, Milk’s dad owned the label that he and his brother Giz were signed to, alongside their sister MC Lyte. As a result, Milk was able to do a remix to 50 Cent‘s “I Get Money” where he listed all the high profile rappers who have written him checks for using samples of “Top Billin’” while wearing exactly the same outfit he sported in 1988. A true CRC role-model.
Why I Don’t Trust ?uestlove
There’s always been something that’s irked me about Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson. Whether it’s his painful name-drop stunting antics on Twitter, endlessly banging on about watching Prince roller skate or recording increasingly self-indulgent albums with The Roots, I’ve long suspected that the internets most beloved “music nerd” isn’t all that he’s cracked up to be. Sure, he can recreate the beat for Big Daddy Kane’s “Raw” well enough on stage, but let us not forget he is likely responsible for introducing Common to Erykah Badu and was involved in the Electric Circus album.
