some more unreleased Tupac,
props to NahRight

More posthumous music,

I was listening to Tupac earlier today and realised he dissed more rappers than the ones that were mentioned on the infamous Hit em up, I didnt even know he had beef with Jay-Z and Nas. He even dissed De La Soul which is pretty crazy. Either way Tupac is the very first rapper I ever listened to and he's still one of my favorites. Here's some unreleased music.

OJ Simpson is guilty and MAD,

Download Coroners Music!

The charisma that Detroit’s heavy hitting MC Guilty Simpson and the Los Angeles based Beat Konducta Madlib share is undeniable. A string of songs going back to Guilty’s first appearance on wax (Jaylib’s “Strapped”) testify to a musical kinship that is rare in today’s rapper-as-an-accessory marketplace. To us, Guilty over a Madlib beat is like hearing Guru over Premier circa Daily Operation, or CL over Pete around the time they recorded “Straighten It Out.” Some times, a rapper and a producer just work well together.

The two together making OJ Simpson, Madlib (Otis Jackson) and Guilty Simpson. OJ Simpson is the name of the album. No, you won’t hear Guilty make any references to bloody gloves. No, you won’t catch Madlib driving a bronco. These are some 14 hard hitting, straight from the gutter hip hop tracks featuring Guilty’s inimitable baritone and a couple guest appearances (Elzhi, Strong Arm Steady). Some cuts by J.Rocc. And a whole bunch of attitude. This is one of our favorite projects in a while.

We’re releasing this teaser single – the title track and the needs-nothing-more-than-the-title verbal onslaight that is “Coroner’s Music” - to remind you of the hip hop you’ve missed. The album drops this fall.

Best news i've heard so far.

from OkayPlayer
We received good word in an email from the homey Jeff at Stones Throw last night that Ma Dukes and J Dilla's other heirs have recently succeeded in their legal battle against the executors of J Dilla's estate. We've been following these matters which were discussed heavily in this interview with Ma Dukes, as well as written about in this Vibe Magazine article from early this year. More to follow.

I was listening to this album today on vinyl and it sounds so great. It made me appreciate the instrumentation on the album and I realized Zooey Deschanel's voice is way more amazing than I thought. This album sounded like something from the 1950's they truly have a great sound.

I absolutely love lanvin,

more info here.

City of Godson is a truly amazing project.

For more info go to download it and listen to it in the dark with headphones its like a movie.

The first song I heard this morning,

I've had this song on my ipod for a few months now but I actually paid attention to the song this morning. Nas is an amazing lyricist he can paint a picture in just a few words. As I listened to it I thought about the situation im in right about now and it was crazy how much it opened up my eyes. Thanks Nas and thanks to Kanye for the beat.


will be on FUSE Saturday at 6pm mountain time.

is a pretty good album, certainly not the best from The Mars Volta. There is always one very calm song on every Mars Volta album and this is like all those calm songs put in one album. The songs are what you expect from The Mars Volta but they are toned down. My only problem with this album was the lack of drums because Thomas Pridgen is a fantastic drummer (not as good as Jon Theodore but still good). If it included more percussion it would've been better but other than that its a good listen.

I need some of these,

Vans’ desert boot-inspired Cojo has returned for Summer 2009. With an ultra soft upper and crepe sole, the Cojo offers a much different aesthetic than your average Vans silhouette. With a renewable charcoal lining, these are some of Vans most eco-friendly kicks. The latest drop features brown suede and tan herringbone colorups. Available now at Huf.

Picasso: Drawing With Light.

LIFE photographer Gjon Mili visited Picasso in 1949. Mili showed the artist some of his photographs of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates jumping in the dark -- and Picasso's mind began to race. The series of photographs that follows -- Picasso’s light drawings -- were made with a small flashlight in a dark room; the images vanished almost as soon as they were created.
