Kidz In The Hall – “The Grizzly Man”

Since we’re approaching knee deep in the Holiday Season, Naledge & Double O plan to give the gift that keeps on giving – a FREE 13 track LP of all new material, entitled The Professional Leisure Tour.

Hey Double O, I’m still waiting on those modeling pics.  NHJIC.

So here is the first leak off the new Kidz In The Hall, “Professional Leisure Tour” free EP, dropping December 8th, sponsored by LRG. The project will contain about 13 new tracks, and act as a warmup to the groups third studio album, “Land Of Make Believe” which is set for a March release. This first track samples the indie band Grizzly Bear’s single “Two Weeks” and was recorded while on tour.

Kidz In The Hall is currently wrapping up their tour, alongside UNI, w/ the following dates remaining:

11/18/2009 Boulder CO Fox Theatre (1135 13th St, Boulder, CO)
11/19/2009 Ft. Collins CO Aggie Theatre (204 S College Ave, Fort Collins, CO)
11/20/2009 – Aspen, CO Belly Up (450 S Galena St, Aspen, CO‎ )

Kamilah Sumner – Heart Of A Lion [Cover Art & Tracklisting]

Looking good, Kamilah.  Here is the cover art and tracklisting for Kamilah Sumner’s upcoming project, Heart Of A Lion.  I’m really digging the artwork and photography on this one.

For your ‘Milah fans, be sure to check her out, performing some of her new material on Thursday night at The Wine Consortium.  Hit the jump for the flyer with additional details.  And don’t go up there looking for a date with her.  Ha!

Video: R. Kelly Is The Panty Raider

Screw Method Man.  When it comes to raiding panties, Kells is King.  At Rob’s first of two Homecoming shows in Chicago, the Arruh received a treat from a female audience member.  After smelling and expecting, he took the panties into his onstage dressing room, where I thought he’d pull a Larry David (“I’m Larry David. I happen to enjoy wearing women’s panties”).  Instead, HE retured the favor and chucked a pair of his dirty draws back into the crowd.  After ringing them out, of course.  Mayhem insued. 

I knew if I’d missed this show last night, I’d have been kicking myself today.  It’s entertainment of the highest caliber.  I’ve never seen so many grown women lose their minds over Rob.  Ladies were screaming, crying, passing out and throwing panties on stage like rice at a wedding.  Despite his personal life, this man is still the Pied Piper of R&B and ruled this Chicago crowd with an iron fist.  Hats off.

Also, known to make songs up out of thin air, Kells made an ode to the red carpet he kept tripping over during the “Club” portion of his set.  I call this one “3 God Damn Times”
