Run The Jewels – “Ooh LA LA” (Feat. DJ Premier & Greg Nice)

At one point Run The Jewels promised RTJ4 would be out before Coachella. Thanks to coronavirus, Coachella is postponed, and the rest of the music industry is in chaos. Chaos, though, is RTJ's natural element, so it's good that they're rolling this shit out. More »

Gang Starr – “Bad Name (Remix)” (Feat. Method Man & Redman)

Gang Starr, the duo of Guru and DJ Premier, were one of the defining New York rap groups of the '90s, and they remain the greatest, purest exemplars of that era's boom-bap sound. Guru died in 2010, but last year, Premier assembled a bunch of the group's unreleased tracks, dropping the posthumous Gang Starr album … More »

Vol. 3… Life And Times Of S. Carter Turns 20

Two nights before his 30th birthday, Jay-Z was out in the club, acting like he had nothing to lose. Jay was at the Kit Kat Klub in Times Square, attending the record-release party for Q-Tip's Amplified, and he was in a bad mood. Jay's LP Vol. 3... Life And Times Of S. Carter was about … More »

One of the Best Yet from Gang Starr Album Released

Gang Starr is one of my favorite duos ever when it comes to hip hop. Hard to Earn is a certified classic that turned 25 earlier this year. DJ Premier is one of the greatest producers in my humble opinion. Guru is one of the coldest to ever touch the mic. Unfortunately, Guru lost his battle with cancer nine years ago. When DJ Premier dropped the Family and Loyalty track with J. Cole that brought back so many memories. Family and Loyalty was featured as a Music Monday track a little over a month...

Tierra Whack Gamed The System

For a while, it looked like Twitter fiction was going to be a thing. As early as 2009, a writer named Matt Stewart self-published The French Revolution, a novel originally shared in 140-character installments. Five years later, David Mitchell, the great British novelist who wrote Cloud Atlas and Ghostwritten, spent a week serializing "The Right … More »

.38 Spesh & Kool G Rap – “Son of G Rap” (Album Review)

If the recent Stabbed & Shot collab EP with Griselda Records’ very own Benny wasn’t enough for you, Rochester MC/producer .38 Spesh is now teaming up with the legendary Kool G Rap for a full-length collab album. After the intro, we go into the first song “Upstate to Queens”. Here, the 2 get confrontational over a soul sample. The track “Land Mind” is the first of 5 without G Rap, but Ransom fills in for him & they both spit about their closets being filled with fabrics as well as their skill...

Twenty-five years after its release, hindsight reveals one now-dated aspect of Guru's Jazzmatazz, Volume 1: The front cover refers to its fusion of hip-hop and jazz as "experimental."

New Music: J. Cole & DJ Premier “1985” (DJ Premier 1966 Remix)

“1985” is a standout track off J. Cole’s highly-praised new album, KOD. The record, which Cole World recently confirmed wasn’t a diss to rappers like Lil’ Pump, now gets the remix treatment. Adding his classic touch, DJ Premier gives the song a new song and renames it “1966.” “I bought J. Cole’s KOD LP as soon as it dropped with no warning to the fans; which I too am a fan. ‘1985’ resonated with me immediately, so I asked Cole if I could get the Acapella and do an underground DJ version just ...
