Detroit native Dwele shows his talent as he makes a one-man cover of MJ's "Human Nature" in 7 minutes. Beat box to guitar to drum machine to bass guitar to keyboards to vocals. Impressive work.

Gangrene- "Under Siege" (Video)

The Alchemist has a solo album coming out on July 7th... This song is from a different project. Al formed a group with rapper/producer Oh No called Gangrene. Check out the very well done and clever video using clips from the LA riots and some classic OJ materials. Al's wig is crazy.

Yay. It looks like Blogger is embedding the videos correctly again. It ain't my fault.
In that case... Bonus round: Unofficial video for Sublime's "April 29, 1992".

Ultramagnetic MC's on Shade45

Last night on Shade45, the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's from the BX were on Tony Touch's Toca Tuesdays to mark the 20th Anniversary of their debut album. Ultra is one of my favorite groups of all-time, and their album Critical Beatdown is certainly in my Top 20 rap albums list (honestly probably in the Top 10).
Check out the audio of the interview below... Highlights: Kool Keith calls himself the "Kobe Bryant of Rap" that "travels like Bill Walton". Ced Gee claims credit for producing all of BDP's classic (wayyyyyy up in my Top 20) Criminal Minded except for "South Bronx", "9mm" and "Elementary". T.R. Love claims credits for the scratches on "Poetry".
Oh, and don't miss the shout-out to Tuff Crew. Big night for the kid...

The Knux- Live at Bonnaroo

Here is some video footage of The Knux from Bonnarroo performing "The List" and "Life In a Cage". Sound quality isn't great, though.

I got another link from Krispy...

Blink-182 "What's My Age Again" on Kimmel

Uh-oh, they let a "bitch" slip! Great to see the guys together again.

What Are You Doing (That's Interesting)?

Ok, I definitely am down with Twitter. It's the closest thing that artists and actors, etc. have to direct interaction with their fans, and as a social tool, messaging system, and electronic communication device it's purely genius. If you say you aren't into it, I'd hazard to guess that you haven't really tried. Twitter-haters are lame.
Try opening an account and searching a topic. Where else can you instantly see what a huge community of users are saying about a given subject so quickly? It's really amazing and definitely fascinating on many levels.
Here's what I can't stand though... I know Twitter asks "what are you doing?" But do we really want or need to hear it all? Do we need to know that you are brushing your teeth or walking your dog? Save that stuff for your diary. Most of us really don't care.
Use it to tell us interesting things. Your thoughts. Things you are doing or did that are truly of interest, different, or curious. Send us links to cool shit. But please don't tell us what you ate for breakfast. We don't care.
