New Video: Rapper Big Pooh - "Wooden Wall Silverware"


All You Can Eat: Rapper Big Pooh


Summer must be the season for man-boobs! First it was Rick Ross and now Rapper Big Pooh shows off his "drooping pecs" in his new video for "Wodden Wall Silverware." Titties aside, this is a great video of Rapper Big Pooh and his friend visiting several Los Angeles eateries and getting their grub on. The song, which was produced by Madlib, appears on Big Pooh's mixtape FatBoyFresh Vol.1: For Members Only. The video was directed by Montage One.


New Video: Author Alvin Blanco Talks His New Wu-Tang Clan Book


Book of Wu



Hip-hop journalist Alvin "Aqua Boogie" Blanco has just released his first book The Wu-Tang Clan and RZA: A Trip through Hip Hop's 36 Chambers, which is in stores now. The book is a quasi-biography that focuses on how the influential New York rap group changed the landscape of hip-hop both in music and in business. The tome also explores the entire Wu-Tang Clan discography -- both group and solo efforts. In addition, some of the Wu-Tang mythologies are decoded for easy understanding.

The folks at Fuse TV's Hip Hop Shop chatted with Blanco about his book and what inspired him to write about the Wu. It's definitely a book you should cop and add to your Wu-Tang collection.

Also check out Blanco's rap blog Slang Rap Democracy, which you should know is a phrase taken from Raekwon the Chef's classic song "Incarcerated Scarfaces."

New Music: The Cool Kids - "Swimsuits" (F/ Mayer Hawthorne)


Cool Kids Cover


Today marks the official day of summer. So without further ado, here's a summer song by the Cool Kids called "Swimsuits" featuring crooner Mayer Hawthrone. Break out the suntan lotion and swim gear. The Cool Kids new LP When Fish Ride Bicycles heats up the summer on July 12.

New Music: Kendrick Lamar - "Ronald Reagan Era" (F/ RZA)



Whoop-de-woot! Kendrick Lamar comes through with another high-powered song from his upcoming LP #Section.80 (due July 2). Over a charging beat, Lamar spit some fiery bars at his detractors proclaiming, "You ain't heard nothing harder since Daddy Kane." My one gripe is that the RZA only has a few ad-libs on the song. It would have been phenomenal to hear the Rzarector spit some revolutionary-inspired lyrics on the track. Oh well, the joint is still fire, though. Take a listen:

New Video: Meek Mill x Rick Ross - "Tupac Back"


All Eyes On Me: Meek Mill


Philadelphia spitfire Meek Mill released his new video for the most freestyled-over song "Tupac Back" on what would have been Tupac Shakur's 40th birthday if he was alive today. Rick Ross proudly shows off his man-boobs in the clip, which was shot on the streets of Los Angeles. California love, for sure.

Rest In Power, 2Pac.
