Fugees Announce Reunion Tour

Ready or not, here they come. The Fugees, one of the most important rap groups in history, haven’t released an album since their classic 1996 sophomore LP The Score, and they haven’t played a show together since 2006. But today, the trio of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel, has announced plans for a global reunion tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Score. It’ll start tomorrow in New York, when the Fugees will play a pop-up show at an as-yet-undisclosed location.

Twisted Sister’s Jay Jay French reveals secrets to success in new business book

When Twisted Sister was selling out tours and racking up hits like “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” guitarist Jay Jay French felt vindicated for the decade he’d spent playing bars and clubs and working on his rock ‘n’ roll dreams. And when bitterness and bankruptcy broke up the band just a few years later? French fell so far he found himself working the graveyard shift at a friend’s pool hall, scraping by to support his family until he could plot a second act. Jay Jay French, guitarist and cofound...

The Strange Magic of Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Chile”

Poor Polyphonic. He was just about to deliver another perfectly mixed treatise on a classic rock magnum opus when the YouTube algorithm and the Jimi Hendrix Estate stepped in to stop him before publishing. So while you can watch this real-time explication of Hendrix’s more-than-just-a-jam “Voodoo Chile” with just the the graphics and the narration, you should cue up the 15 minute track however you can (for example on Spotify), and then press play when when the video gives the signal. (Th...

Was uns die spannendsten Looks der Met Gala über „American Fashion“ verraten

Es war der zweite Montag im September – und in jedem anderen Jahr hätte das nichts weiter als einen üblichen Wochenneustart bedeutet. 2021 stand an diesem Datum aber das wohl größte Fashion-Event des Jahres im Kalender: die Met Gala. Nach 16 langen Monaten ohne prominente Badezimmer-Fotos und Star-Selfies auf der Treppe – und, nicht zu vergessen, die wohl extravagantesten Mode-Ensembles überhaupt –, fanden die „Oscars of Fashion“ gestern endlich wieder statt.

The Blueprint Turns 20

I know multiple people who woke up one Tuesday morning, watched from windows or Brooklyn rooftops as the second plane hit and the World Trade Center fell, and then went out and bought The Blueprint. Jay-Z’s opus wasn’t supposed to come out on September 11, but Jay was worried about bootleggers — he was always worried about bootleggers — and so he moved up the album release a week. On that calamitous morning, when people didn’t know if New York was under attack or the world was ending or what, pe...

Netflix documentary looks at mob-affiliated minor league hockey club

Of course there's a tax crime connection. A defunct Connecticut minor league hockey club is the focus of a new Netflix documentary. The film's tales of the brawling Danbury Trashers offer this weekend's diversion, along with a bit of a tax connection. I fell in love with hockey when I went to my first game, a Washington Capitals match back in 1981 shortly after we moved to the National Capital area. Those early Capitals' teams sucked majorly. But they had some good individual players. ...

Halsey. Miley Cyrus. Ariana Grande. Das sind nur ein paar der vielen Promis, die ihre Tattoos unter anderem an den Händen tragen – und während der Trend in Hollywood (und demnach auch auf Instagram) immer mehr zum Hand-Tattoo geht, überlegst du vielleicht selbst, dir dort ein bisschen Tinte unter die Haut piksen zu lassen. Vorher solltest du aber einiges wissen. Zuerst mal ein bisschen zur Geschichte der Hand-Tattoos: Einige archäologische Funde, unter anderem eine 3.000 Jahre alte Mumie, lasse...

Wiki – “Roof” & “Remarkably” (Prod. Navy Blue)

Wiki, the slurry New York rapper and former Ratking member, has been on a serious creative run lately. Earlier this year, he teamed up with the Belgium-based producer NAH and released the deeply strange album Telephonebooth. This fall, Wiki will release another new album produced entirely by one person. This time, the beatmaker in question is Navy Blue, the pro skateboarder who’s also carved out a serious niche as a lo-fi rapper and producer in recent years. (This won’t be Navy Blue’s first coll...

Watch Vince Staples & Foushée’s Artfully Staged Performance Of “Take Me Home” On Fallon

Last month, Vince Staples released his short, bleak, meditative self-titled album. The LP features only one guest appearance: Foushée, the New York soul singer who came to prominence after competing on The Voice and who sings on “Take Me Home.” Last night, Staples and Foushée appeared together as musical guests on The Tonight Show, and they found a cool way to deliver “Take Me Home” in front of an audience without compromising the song’s feeling.

Singer Judy Collins recalls Leonard Cohen, and talks new podcast, album and tour

Judy Collins says she is more than happy to give credit where it is due: Her new podcast, “Since You’ve Asked,” was her manager’s idea. “I’m so happy to be able to say that,” the singer says by phone from her home in New York City recently. “My manager is so smart. She said, ‘I’d like you to do some podcasts,’ and I said, ‘Great!’” But it’s Collins’ own intelligence and curiosity that makes “Since You’ve Asked” such an engaging listen. Episodes have so far included writer and teacher Julia Camer...
