Still one of my favorite UK hip-hop groups of all time and I wouldn't disagree with Tru Thought's contention that "Money Mad" is the "finest UK hip hop single of all time!" Listen to the full "Money Mad" single re-release featuring remixes by Drumagick and Wrongtom HERE . [video via DK Tumblr ]

Thanks to the good people at SOS for this very special contest offer: If you don't know De La Soul and claim to love hip-hop music and culture I suggest you get familiar ASAP with this legendary, pioneering act.

In various guises & at various venues in NY over the years, the crew has hosted the likes of Thomas Bullock (Rub'n'Tug), Terekke (L.I.E.S.), Mount Analog DJs, Andrew Vanwyngarden (MGMT), Laurel Halo (Hyperdub) and Jan Woo (Vibes/Body Actualized) among many others. DEEP TROUBLE believe in Quality Sound Systems, Strobing White LIght + Fog Machines. The goal is simple but ephemeral: To create [...]
Copycat remixes the classic hip hop standard “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow” from Nice & Smooth. Absolutely banging.
The make-up of long-respected DJ/ producer Terry Urban's remix of "All Gold Everything" is very simple: all it involves is pasting the acapella of Trinidad James ' breakout ratchet anthem to the familiar bump of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five's rap golden age standard "The Message" . Considering the polarizing response to James' basic existence, the idea of marrying his record to one of the most acclaimed socially conscious tracks in not only hip hop history, but music history, is also a bold one. Potential cries of "Blasphemy!!" aside though, the [...]

Considering the months-long reign that French Montana 's A-lister-slathered and Uncle Luke sample-highlighted "Pop That" had as the "ratchet jam of the moment" last year, it was a bit of a dome scratcher how the Bronx emcee never quite managed to pump out debut album Excuse My French while the breakout record was peaking. And now, with the album pushed back for a May (!!) release, it has put Montana in a situation to try to push out another banger on the same level as, or even bigger than, "Pop That" to stir [...]
I'm close to this record, personally so I'm not sure what I think of this 20th Anniversary remix although apparently Naughty co-sgins it as it the first track on their new soundcloud page.
Classic hip-hop! Here's the backgrounder: Your favorite OG edu-tainers receive the TME Pro Studios treatment. Just-Ice & KRS-ONE : The EP Vol. 1 was recorded at the Bronx studio and was released in 2010. Now in 2012, spearheaded by Fred Ones (Owner/Engineer of TME) the EP has been remixed with more of that melodic boom bap under consistent legendary flows.

Boasting an ample supply of nod-friendly beats, a lyrical intellect seasoned with slick metaphors and real world concerns, and an overall deep-rooted appreciation for that good hip hop of a non-pop ilk, there's plenty to admire about The Idea of Beautiful , the official debut of North Carolina emcee Rapsody . Mid-set cut (and now current single) "The Drums" definitely grasps repeat-worthy value thanks to its eased, feelgood vibe sounding like a street corner jam session between friends...that just so happens to be studio polished. With 9th Wonder [...]

I dunno how prepared I was today for new Showbiz & AG, but whenever I see those two D.I.T.C members names it definitely intrigues me, as it should anyone who still bumps Runaway Slave or Goodfellas. 20 years after the release of Runaway Slave the duo is prepping their next project, Mugshot Music which is due Oct. 9th, via D.I.T.C Records.
Here's a dope throwback for you. A classic classic 1987 release from J.V.C. Force which still retains its freshness. Old school, no doubt, but timeless. Continue Reading

Filed under: News , Exclusive Joshua Ostroff, AOL When Rob Base bounded onto the stage of Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum for TOGETHER 2012, the United Jewish Appeal fundraiser may have been an unlikely event but the venue was rather apropos, what with all the dinosaurs in the building. The '80s hip-hop legend no longer performs with his one-time partner DJ E-Z Rock, but Rob Base was part of a stellar old-school hip-hop [...]
