Kells follows up his single “#1″, with “Be My #2″ (no dookie) off Untitled. Coincidence? I think not.
This video shoot looks like it was quite the time. I doubt I’ll ever be invited to an R. Kelly party, but if I am, I hope it’s part two of this. Looks like the exact opposite of a swordfight, if you know what I mean.
Wes Restless, Awdazcate and Sang chronicle their 20 hour trek down to Austin, TX. What’s a Pfluggerville?
Smell it, inhale it and let Gene tell it:
Fresh off the SXSW trip to Austin Texas, YP and Big Homie take the stage at Reggie’s this past Monday and perform their newborn classic “I Wanna Smoke”– Catch YP performing Tuesday March 30th at the Wild Hare with Curtains and Freddie Gibbs.
In an article in today’s Red Eye, writer Matthew Bruce chopped it up with various Bulls and Hawks players to see what they were bumpin’ on their respective iPod’s. Born and bred Chicagoan D-Rose copped to enjoying Southern hip-hop, namely Waka Flocka, with Hinrich claiming he keeps it “traditional” with Tupac and Chris Wallace. Luol Deng (who I once famously caught cruising a smart car down Halsted) enjoys reggae and Bob Marley, as does Joakim Noah (obviously).
Someone tell these guys they need to come get their music from FSD. Please and thanks. Someone later in the article claimed to like “anything with a good beat” which is almost as milquetoast as claiming your favorite music is “anything but country”.
Near All-Star guard Derrick Rose, you might hear Wacka Flocka Flame’s “O Let’s Do It” blaring from his headphones. The second-year point guard from Chicago opts mostly for hip-hop in his pregame ritual and has a particular partiality for southern rap, he said.
Seventh-year guard Kirk Hinrich keeps it old-school with 2Pac and Notorious B.I.G. keeping him company prior to tip-offs, while Sudanese forward Luol Deng grooves to the reggae of Damian Marley, son of Bob Marley.
Joakim Noah is a Marley fan too.
“I listen to a lot of music in my car before I get [to the United Center],” he said. “I listen to Phil Collins. I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers. … A lot of Bob Marley.”
Gangsta L and Uncle Bun hit the stage with XV and Mike Posner down at SXSW to perform the “Mirror’s Edge” – Alcapulo style.
Bonus: GLC Interview w/ 6 Magazine
An interview with Mick Boogie led to an interview with Peter Bjorn and John, which led to meeting up with Hollywood Holt. A Warren G tour led to CurT@!n$ and U-N-I coming to Chicago, and a pass from Amanda Diva led to Million $ Mano’s production becoming the soundtrack of “So Cold”, the Closed Sessions song that ties everything together. Check out this documentary about the song as well as the participating artists to get the full scoop.
Not to be confroosed with Lonnie’s version.
