More Refill Spots

Check out what's inside Shady Claus's medicine cabinet as well as the official Jordan IV Shady Clause TV spot that's been airing recently. (It didn't serve as such good luck for the Saints against the Cowboys when it aired on the NFL Network broadcast...)

Relapse: Refill
is in-stores today, 12/21/09.

Hanukkah Radio 2009- Matisyahu

Reggae artist Matisyahu called up Hanukkah Radio on Shade45 this past shabbat (before sundown, of course) and gave us a very spiritual description of The Festival of Lights, aka Hanukkah. Check out the two segments below, and learn who the long-hair blunt smoking beatboxer at the White Plains house parties was in the mid-90's. Word to Buff Love.

The pic above is myself and Reef the Streets in front of the menorah in the mall at the Time Warner/AOL building shortly after the broadcast. We've got it on latke. Thanks to Matisyahu for making this year's program extra official.

Drake: Jew of the Year

Also from Hanukkah Radio 2009 on Sirius XM's Shade45 is the below phoner from none other than Canada's finest export in rap, Drake. Drake is Jewish, and we asked him some questions about it- including whether a certain event took place when he turned 13. Check out the audio below, and learn why we selected Drake as Hanukkah Radio's Jew of the Year. Somehow I doubt that a Hanukkah album is on the way, but we'd kill to get our hands on those photos from that Italian restaurant... Thanks, Drizzy.

Hanukkah Radio 2009- Jay Electronica

Like we do every year, yesterday we hosted Hanukkah Radio on Sirius XM's Shade45. This year was a bonanza for phone-in interviews, as we had Matisyahu, Drake and Jay Electronica call up and speak about various topics related to the holiday and the Jewish religion. Below check out Jay Electronica's interview and learn why he calls himself Jay Elec-Hanukkah and Jay Elec-yarmulke. I'll post the other interviews tomorrow and/or Sunday!

Complex Eminem Cover

Check out the video below about the "making-of" of Eminem's Complex cover, out now. To create this I Am Legend style urban abandoned landscape, we went to Detroit's infamous Brewster Projects and the more desolate areas of Eastern Market. Check out the rest of the pics and the full article here.
