November 2009

This is like when Dove decided to use “real women” half naked on their beauty ads. In theory, it was a great message. But I think a cross-the-board film-quality standard is sorely missed. That’s difficult if you’re calling in submissions from real fans. But it woulda made all the difference. On the other hand…there are some very psyched young gals (and 1 guy) out there today. (thanks to Mr. X)

Mikey: 57thave caught up with Raekwon at the House of Blues in LA for a  nice sit down, and caught some of his performance on vid. Rae speaks on OB4CL2 sales, Wu-Tang’s up’s & downs, breaks down “Catalina”,  the Wu-Massacre album, and more above. Catch The Chef performing “Catalina” & some Wu Classics after the jump.


gucci and girls

Yeah, this song is perfect for swingin’ your half-eaten turkey leg like a gucci bandana at the table in front of your gran-gran. But for dessert what I really wanna hear is that Gucci Mane x Cam’ron x Lil Wayne collabo….hello?? NMC??

New Music: Gucci Mane “Heavy” (CDQ)

UPDATE: Here’s another clip of my Gucci interview that debuted today on Allhiphop (thank you to my longtime cohorts Chuck, Greg, Steve and more)…In this part, Gucc talks about his recent spate of collabos…

Previously: Gucci Mane x Miss Info Pt2, on being blacklisted off Usher’s “Love in the Club”

After the jump, a video clip from Rolling Out TV, featuring an older interview clip where Gucci speaks reflectively about jail, and his interest in mythology etc.


Mikey: Usher’s upcoming  Raymond vs. Raymond sprung a few leaks, here are two standard “feature a rapper” tracks. Not mad though. (courtesy of Splash.)

Mikey: Last night at the Highline Ballroom in New York City, Myspace Music hosted 50 Cent and the G-Unit crew before a packed venue of Fif’s core audience. Surprisingly, nothing too controversial came out of 50’s mouth, but Beans did come out to perform “I Go Off”. Check out the clip from Thisis50.

But 50  finally did another interview with Green Lantern on Invasion Radio and took the time to address everything from his first week sales, Jay’s AMA comment, the origins of “Pimpin’ Curly, and more

Mikey: Just as I wondering where the hell Asher Roth was, the homie B.English hits me with footage of Consequence and Asher going dumb in Flint, Michigan. In this episode of Cons TV, watch Roth rip a show and Cons do the radio thing.

Mikey: I can’t take it anymore… seriously these little teasers are killing me. I need the full length album to accompany these clips…  The Mef + Rae + Ghost album drops Feb. 9th, 2010. (hopefully)

“According to David Fincher’s “Se7en” Deadly Sins, we’ve seen the sin of PRIDE (the high sense of worth for oneself) and SLOTH (spiritual and emotional apathy) and how the Wu deals with such vices. Well now it’s Raekwon’s turn and guess which capital sin pisses him off the most. Three/21 presents the final installment: “The Wu-Massacre” Part III. Directed by Rik Cordero. Album is now due on February 9, save the date!” – via Three/21 Media
