Everything About The Rock’s First Official Rap Verse Is Funny

I can still remember hearing that Wyclef Jean was going to have the Rock on his single. This was 21 years ago, when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was on his fourth or fifth reign as WWF World Champion. The Rock wasn’t a movie star yet — he’d make his debut as a terrible CGI effect in The Mummy Returns a year later — but he already seemed like he might be the coolest person on earth. The Rock had been a shit-talking, egocentric heel who’d become a crowd favorite simply because he was so good at egoce...

Fugees return to New York for their first gig in 15 years … after a three-hour wait

The rap trio kick off their just-announced world tour to an eager audience but fall into old habits of tardiness Dressed in a red frock which flounced as she performed, the rapper, singer and musician Lauryn Hill told the eager but weary crowd: “Respect the miracle. Respect the miracle of this union” three and a half hours later than billed. Related: Fugees announce reunion world tour, 25 years after The Score Continue reading...

Watch The Fugees Reunite In NYC

You’re never going to believe this, but a concert that involved both Ms. Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean didn’t start on time. Earlier this week, the Fugees, a group who hadn’t released an album in 25 years and hadn’t performed live in 15, announced a global reunion tour. The tour was set to start with a New York show in an unannounced location. Last night, the New York show happened, but there were some predictable snags.

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.

Wyclef Jean on Scoring ‘The Chi,’ Bob Marley and His New Music App, Sodo

Tom Jones Covers Talking Heads “Burning Down the House”–and Burns Down the House (1999)

It was supposedly “the album that finally obliterates the thin line separating arty white pop music and deep black funk,” as David Fricke wrote on the release of Talking Heads’ Speaking in Tongues. The praise maybe oversells music that is more arty white pop than “deep black funk.” But there’s never been any denying the funkiness of Talking Heads, either, just as there’s never been any denying the soulfulness of Tom Jones. Not that they’re musically comparable artists, but both have inco...
