Last week, a NY Times puzzle was the center of controversy when Will Shortz used a clue “Wack, in hip-hop” for “illin.” Some people weren’t too pleased with definition of the word. So Stephen Colbert rallied the troops to get to the bottom of this, by getting Mike D to come to a conclusion.

Raekwon gives upcoming New York rapper Napoleon Da Legend the co-sign with a verse and some words of praise:

When I first heard the beat by Napoleon Da Legend, I knew it was gonna be special, but when I heard his vocals and the beat combined, it reminded me of myself being a hungry cat coming up bout to take the game by storm. I’m very conscious about who I record with far as new artists is concerned, but when I wrote my verse I followed his lead because it was so powerful. It was that great that I contemplating about buying the record from him. But this will be a cat y’all will be hearing from in the near future I’m cosigning that!

We have received word from readers this evening that legendary singer and songwriter Jimmy Castor, known for his funky — and funny — hits during the 70s, has died. As the leader of the Jimmy Castor Bunch, he topped the charts with such cuts as the humorous “Troglodyte (Cave Man)” and “The Bertha Butt Boogie.”

Castor started as a singer and saxophonist in New York, and first appeared as a session man for Frankie Lymon, for whom he also wrote the hit “I Promise to Remember.” But it was his solo work and work leading the Jimmy Castor Bunch that won fans all over the world. Other hits included “King Kong,” “Potential” and “Hey Leroy, Your Mama’s Callin’ You,” with many of his songs being later sampled by hip-hop artists.

Even long after his hitmaking days were over, Castor continued to perform around the world, pleasing fans with his unique style of funk and dance music. He will be missed.
