azizisbored: Enrique Iglesias - Tonight I’m Fucking You This is how I imagine Enrique emailing his director the idea for this incredible video: Ok, so the song is called ‘Tonight I’m Fucking You’ so I thought in the video I could just be fucking a lot. What I’m thinking is, the video starts and I’m in a nightclub… I see this really hot girl and right before I sing the chorus where I go...
Five Acts To Watch For In 2011 →
Das Racist - Rainbow In The Dark by HASSENPHEFFR Das Racist is a tough code to crack. Two mixtapes deep, journalists and listeners alike are struggling to decipher that hazy shade of what’s really going on. Beyond whatever subversion or absurdism is unfolding one thing can be said for certain, Himanshu Suri and Victor Vazquez are two technically-gifted emcees capable of freaking numerous...
The Lonely Island - I Just Had Sex →
It appears Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island boys have another hit on their hands with the Akon-assisted “I Just Had Sex.” Their wildly-popular Digital Shorts are arguably the only thing keeping SNL afloat these days. Well, that and the Kissing Family and Insane Clown Posse spoofs. Following in the familiar footsteps of “Jizz In My Pants” and “Dick In A...
The Heavy Guilt @ Winstons (Live Review) →
Ocean Beach multitudes packed the thin walls of Winstons to catch a glimpse of one of San Diego’s most promising new bands. Those on hand for the Heavy Guilt’s last show of 2010 were privy to hear their second, as-of-yet recorded album in its entirety. Nestled between jam-band aesthetics, Sean Martin’s virtuoso guitar machinations, and the raw, emotive vocals of Erik...

William Ryan Fritch - Stir Coals, Burn Nothing →
Oakland’s William Ryan Fritch earned his stripes crafting work for Anticon artists and when you listen to “Stir Coals, Burn Nothing” you can tell he is a maturing rap vet. It’s boudoir swank, overly sensory and apropos for laying down a hip-hop head or a krautrock lover. But the essence of the track must come from a Giorgio Moroder upbringing, who we have told you before...

Evidence x The Beatles Project Leaked →
The latest chapter in rap’s continuing love affair with the Beatles comes via Evidence’s I Don’t Need Love. Although the project was not initially intended to leak, the Dilated emcee has embraced it and spread the free download for public consumption. Following in the footsteps of Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album, Evidence’s record is a unique mash-up of two very disparate styles highlighted by the...

Wu Tang @ 4th & B (Live Review) →
Going into a mainstream rap show, not to mention one featuring a longtime crew on a reunion tour, you shouldn’t be all too surprised when they hit the stage over four hours late. Palpable anger swirled through the air as “Wu-Tang” chants ringing off the walls of 4th&B drown out the futile efforts of the dreadful openers. Just when the mood seemed to border on riot mode,...
Dear... by Saul Williams
As the media sways between reporting on the huge disservice Julian Assange has done to government secrecy and posting the secrets, as Interpol tries it’s hardest to track him, as the American government places him on the top of their most wanted list, and as the barefoot bandit sits alone in a cell awaiting trial- I would like to take a moment to admit that these guys are pretty much...
