The Old Dirty Bastard live & uncut

As Danny Brown prepares for the release of his much-hyped album OLD, due September 30th, he releases this clip for the aptly titled “ODB”.

Quentin Tarantino's pretty thugs in collectible form

Ever since seeing Django Unchained over the holidays, we’ve had a lot of Quentin Tarantino on the brain. Not only did I watch Pulp Fiction again recently, but I already lined up Jackie Brown on the old Netflix queue. What can I say, it’s one of my favorites. But as good as all of the above […]

The Sunset Strip's Roxy Theater kicks off the 20th Anniversary of hip-hop's most beloved party album

In our humble opinion, there is no better hip-hop party album ever recorded than the Pharcyde’s stellacular Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde. It is pure celebration in sonic form (oh how many brain cells we’ve happily surrendered to “Oh Shit”).
