With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, here are a few tunes you might want to ensure don’t come up on the car stereo while your driving your the woman who brought you into this world to lunch, else she decide to remove you from the face of the planet in a lot less time – or just scold you like you still wear short pants.
Here’s the latest episode of the Star and Buc Wild Show, which is live streamed on YouTube at 12pm every weekday and then rebroadcast on Shot 97. Basically it consists of Star shitting on people, dudes calling-up to make sure that Star got their donation to play their song and various other fuckery. Star might be showing his age by the fact that he still owns a Blackberry and has a Yahoo email address, but he’s lost none of that hate in his heart, which is something that Unkut Dot Com has to respect. You can also cop his book for free ninety nine if you still believe that reading is fundamental.
I haven’t had time to mess around with my internets between all the drinking I’ve been doing in the fine city, but I did have time to pen a quick review for an album from some douche called Tyler, The Creator:
So there was a free show the other night featuring Jean Grae and Pharoahe Monch, which isn’t really a big deal since I never really pay to get in anyways and I don’t really know a song that either of ’em have done for the last five years, but eff it. First thing I noticed that were a lot of broads around, which is pretty unusual for a scumbag spot like this one but always a positive. Did all this gals roll up to hear ‘Simon Says’? On closer inspection, I noticed that 85% of these chicks appeared to be on some of that old rug munch status, and then the penny dropped. ‘Oh shit, Jean got this girl-on-girl rap audience in a headlock!’. There also seemed to be your usual fudge pudge of type-Emo rap fans and J. Bieber wannabes, which seems to be par for the course in this fruit basket we call hip-hop now. (more…)
The artist formerly known as Tony Bones from The Home Office put together this ad for the Villain In Black‘s new range of Swap Meet Snacks, which got me thinking – what are some rap endorsements that need to happen? Tim Dog‘s Extra Beef Burgers? Lords of the Underground‘s Squidgy Set? Neek The Exotic‘s Exotic Spices of The Orient? OJ Da Juiceman‘s Fruit and Vegetable Juicemaker?
This just arrived in the inbox via UK correspondent crate digga. Basically, if the top 50 rappers of the world were someone wiped-out in nuclear explosion, this karaoke master would be be able to hold it down for dolo….assuming the rest of the population had their hearing destroyed by that same nuke attack.
Predictably, my comment the other day that LL ‘never lost a battle’ ruffled a few feathers among Canibus fans. LL vs. Kool Moe Dee was already covered a while back, but I guess there’s no other way to settle this than to dig out all the garbage songs recorded in this drawn-out and unsatisfying war of words.

More musical abortions to throw yourself under a bus to…
Black Eyed Peas – ‘They Don’t Want Music’ (Pete Rock Remix)
PR is considered to be hip-hop’s king of the remix, but even the #1 Soul Brother wasn’t able to fight the power of Fergie, who once again proves that she’s musical Kryptonite.
KRS-One – ‘Rappaz R N Danja’ (Rock Remix)
Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine somehow manages to fuck-up one of the Blastmasta‘s last great solo tracks.
A Tribe Called Quest – ‘I Left My Wallet In El Segundo’ (Vampire Mix)
Hardly the most memorable slice of Q-Tip‘s legacy, however thanks to the efforts of a pre-Fatboy Slim era Norman Cook, we get a Ragga-Lite remake. Lick a shot…or not.
Adrianna Evans – ‘Seein’ Is Believing’ (Jeru Remix)
If The Damaja‘s Premier-free solo albums didn’t convince you that he should never be allowed near a beat machine ever again, this tinny remix for some Loud Records D-List warbler will make you a believer.
The Police – ‘Roxanne ’97’ (Puff Daddy Remix)
Just when you’re ready to Kurt Cobain yourself, it gets worse…Pras from the Fu-Gees raps!
After tallying the results from the first two rounds, Redman (23% in Round One) and Ol’ Dirty Bastard (35% in Round Two) move through to the final, where they have to face-off against the wildcard entry…that’s right, the most effed-up individual to ever pick-up a microphone – Flavor Flav! The real story here is the connection between your recreational drug intake and your comedic output… (more…)
The rap game is full of clowns you say? Sure, there are some jokers out there, but what about the dudes who are actually funny on purpose? My gut reaction would be to say Biz Markie, but what about the other comedic MC’s out there? Apologies to Blowfly and Bobby Jimmy & The Critters fans, YouTube failed you. (more…)
It was fun while it lasted, but it seems that Unkut’s title as the “home of homophobia in the hip-hop blogopshere” has been brought to a close by the arrival of Rap Gaydar, a new blog which lets readers submit their favorite suspect lyric or photo. As I pass the proverbial torch over to the new kings of this fudge rap thing, it’s only right that I do one final drop on the topic of ‘up the coat’ rap – or in this case, rap that throws teh ghey’s under a bus.
Still as brilliant as when I posted it back in 2006. Lake covers a variety of important issues here, from ‘down-low’ dudes giving broads the germ to dudes turning sweet after being locked-up and how Lake doesn’t want them dude’s hanging around his kids. Say word. (more…)
A case could quite easily be argued that women have been dealt a bad hand by the vast majority of rap songs, but I say otherwise. Let’s just consider how many timeless terms of endearment have been created to describe the “good-time gals” that most people get into the music game to meet: (more…)
Dallas Penn and eskay let the people know that Unkut Dot Com is in their personal Top 5, which holds a lot more weight with me than where I got placed on the ‘official’ VYBE [sic] list. Maybe it had something to do with my comments that I’d “rather be in Hustler” after they “threw me a bone” and ranked Unkut #19 in the “30 Best Music Web Spots” list from 2007….
