Berg talks the “Do That There” remix which is set to feature 50 Cent, Twista and Red Cafe (maybe?).  He also takes a quick shot at “Lil” Bow Wow and claims Da Brat used to write his rhymes.  Ouch.

Video: Crucial Conflict – "Change (Remix)"

| March 29, 2008 | 1 Comment


A new Barack Obama dedication song.  This isn’t exactly a video, per se, its more of a compilation of Obama clips.  A nice reworking of Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come” though.  Available on the ‘Flict’s latest album, Planet Crucon – in stores now.

Bonus:  Crucial Conflict freestyling on Rap City back in ’96

Remember The Procussions? The eclectic trio signed to Rawkus Records and released a pretty decent album a few years back? Well they broke up.

The good news? Naledge opened up the vaults and sent us a remix to their “would-be” single “Little People” featuring Naledge Born, himself.

R.A.G.U. @ Pitchfork Music Festival

| March 28, 2008 | 0 Comments

I woke up this morning to find this information waiting on me in my inbox – needless to say, today started off on the right foot:

The 2008 Pitchfork Music Festival invades Chicago’s Union Park from July 18-20. We’ve already revealed 13 of the 41 scheduled acts– including Public Enemy doing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, Animal Collective, Spiritualized, and Vampire Weekend — and now, we’re pleased to announce 13 more…

… Other additions to the lineup include…Ghostface and Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan performing together.

Are you kidding me? This is crazy. Last year Pitchfork did the unthinkable and brought GZA to Chicago to perform Liquid Swords in its entirety (Cappadonna, Killah Priest and others were also on hand), now they’re bringing Ghost and Rae? I had a feeling they were going to try and duplicate the Wu-Tang nostalgia that took place last year, but they went ahead and exceeded my expectations. Well done.
