Madvillainy 2: The Box

July 29, 2008

The one thing that I didn’t like about “Rock The Bells”, is that my man MF DOOM, didn’t show. It looks like Stones Throw Records, is making up for this! Attention Mrs. YZO, this is what I want for my early birthday gift.

Only available on the Stones Throw Website, until Aug. 15th. Box includes:

CD Madvillainy “2” The Madlib Remix. 25 tracks.
7-INCH “One Beer (Drunk Version)” Madlib’s original 2004 version, lost until recently on the floor of his Bomb Shelter studio. If you saw the studio you’d understand.
CASSETTE The Madvillainy Demo Tape. 12 tracks, 36 minutes. This is the first and only official release of the infamous Madvillain demo that “leaked into cyberspace,” while the album was still in progress, as DOOM alludes to in the lyrics of “Rhinestone Cowboy.”
T-SHIRT Nominated. Best Rolled L’s. Madvillain shirt.
COMIC BOOK Meanwhile… the continuation of the All Caps video, included with the CD.
12x13x3 inches. Wrapped in silver like a mask.

Sam Sparro “Black & Gold” video footage

July 24, 2008

When you first see this cat, and hear him talk, he reminds me of Hugh Grant,(the dude that got caught with the prostitute) but when you hear him sing, you hear one of the best new soulful voices around. Mr. Sam Sparro’s (down with Mr. Mark Ronson) self titled release might make my top ten list this year. Here is the making of the video “Black & Gold…

The Making of Reflection Eternal’s “Train Of Thought”

July 23, 2008

The first record label I ever worked for was Rawkus Records. This was back when nobody had a clue of Mos Def, and record stores could not say Talib Kweli’s name right. Anyway, we dropped the first Mos Def album and Pharoahe Monch album a week later, and that was all she wrote! The following year Talib Kweli & Hi Tek dropped the “Train Of Thought”. When this album dropped, I knew Rawkus was on to something big!
