Update: Excuse The Mess . . .


Building Notice


Still working on the redesign of this blog-turned-official website. I'm creating a new banner and streamlining the right and left sidebars. It's not much, but I want my website to look visually appealing in the new year.

My posts will be sporadic through January.

Thank you for your patience.

New Music: Kida - "Alliance" (F/ Chaundon, Sha Stimuli, Rapper Big Pooh & Joe Scudda)

This is an epic joint from Kida, an indie rapper from Inglewood, Calif., who's been getting a lot love from the hip-hop websites. "Alliance" features the Hall of Justus crew (Chaundon, Rapper Big Pooh and Joe Scudda) and New York rapper Sha Stimuli. The posse track will appear on Kida's mixtape project The Redshirt Freshman, which is due out March 2001.

Jay Electronica Mountain Dew Code Red Commercial


Suit Up: Jay Electronica


Wow! And the Jay Electronica promotional train starts . . . right now!

Jay Elect appears in a new commercial for Mountain Dew Code Red, which features the cool tagline, "Hip-Hop Is Different on the Mountain." The ad utilizes Jay Electronica's song "The Announcement" and was filmed at club One Eyed Jacks in the rapper's hometown of New Orleans. "This is the first time I've done something . . . of this magnitude," Jay Electronica told Miss Info. "I'm pretty excited about it."

New Video: Murs & 9th Wonder - "I Used To Love Her (Again)"


Beats & Rhymes: Murs

Murs updates Common's metaphoric hip-hop ode "I Used to Love H.E.R." in his new video for "I Used to Love Her (Again)." In the clip, which was directed by Jon Mazyck, the Los Angeles emcee reflects on the direction that hip-hop took through the mid '90s -- particularly during the rise of gangsta rap and G-Funk -- to the present day.

The song is from Murs & 9th Wonder's collaborative LP Fornever.

For the sample-digging fanatics, Wonder sampled Detroit soul group Black Nasty's "I Must Be in Love" from their 1973 album Talking to the People (via Stax Records).
