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”. While surely a reference to the great Dirt Dog, aka Dirt McGirt, it also cheekily references the common barb thrown at Brown that he’s, well, old. An old ass bastard, one […]


In the early and mid-90s there simply wasn’t a better hip-hop clique than the Wu. Hell, there still hasn’t been anyone close to Wu Tang Clan in rap or rock or gospel or yodeling or damn well anything else since then. But in those halcyon years RZA helmed some all time classics, and Ghostface Killah’s […]

Dirt McGirt's landmark 1995 debut finally gets re-mastered

When you say that Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s landmark 1995 debut Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version is one of the best Wu Tang Clan records, you’re basically suggesting it’s one of the best hip hop albums of all time. And you’d be right. Next to eminent classics like GZA’s Liquid Swords and Raekwon’s […]

LIAS sits down with Sam Spiegel to figure out exactly who they've got naked pictures of...

We’ve covered N.A.S.A. (North America South America) here many times in the past, partly because they’ve managed to corral an almost unholy stable of collaborators to work with (“People Tree” featuring David Byrne, Chali 2Na, Z-Trip and Gift of Gab, “Whachadoin?” with M.I.A., Santogold and Spank Rock, “Spacious Thoughts” with Tom Waits and Kool Keith, […]

GZA lifts the curtain on the greatest hip hop crew of all time

Damn, this looks like must-see TV for any die hard Wu-Tang Clan fan. Compiled and directed by Wu Tang luminary GZA, this 10 years in the making documentary seems to be the video that no one could make except for someone so integral to the crew. Who else would Wu let hold a camera to […]

Boing Boing + NASA brings the animated noise

Props to N.A.S.A. who continue their Boing Boing-sponsored run of excellent animated videos (e.g. that Syd Garon directed “People Tree” video featuring David Byrne, Chali 2Na, Z-Trip and Gift of Gab, “Whachadoin?” with M.I.A., Santogold and Spank Rock, “Spacious Thoughts” with Tom Waits & Kool Keith, etc). This time it’s a vid for “Strange Enough”, […]

Peanut butter & jelly for your ears

Some clever producer named  Tom Caruana just put together this Wu Tang Vs. The Beatles Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers mixtape and man it’s made my day. No, it’s not as good as Danger Mouse’s Grey Album, but it really hits a delicious intersection in my brain where the Wu meets the Beatles — a […]

2 of my favorite things...

If you asked me to wax poetic about my love of Wu Tang Clan, I’d deliver a handsome leatherbound 1,200 page tome to your doorstep with a 24-karat gold W embossed on the cover. They blew my mind in the mid-90s, made me switch from blue Champion hoodies to black ones, and created an entire […]
