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.

Nakon Bojanke, Jesi Spreman Na Vožnju je drugi singl s nadolazećeg albuma grupe 268 naziva Storydigital. Produkciju ove pjesme potpisuje Robbie Digital.
268 je grupa koju čine Muhamed i JuxXx aka Crack Sinatra kao MC-jevi te Robbie Digital kao producent/DJ. Grupa je nastala u Velikoj Gorici te je i dobila naziv po autobusnoj liniji Velika Gorica – Zagreb (268). Navedena trojica su utemeljitelji grupe koja se vrlo brzo raširila u crew, neki bi čak rekli i pokret te se tako kao članovi 268 familije danas nalaze i Lesho (MC), Chika 3.14mp (MC), PeroMatijević (producent), Mali Dinek i Entoni (B-boys; break dance) te nekoliko promotora (MarkOOrtak, Krilić, JoKe).

U nastavku posta poslušajte bonus pjesmu – solo uradak člana 268 kolektiva, Leshoa.

Underground Jazzy & Funky Hip-Hop zvukove na četiri gramofona donosimo 28.01.2012. u legendarni klub KSET.

Na PHAT KSET #2, pozvali smo SETT-a, našeg starog prijatelja (legendu u našim očima) i producenta sada već klasičnog General Woo-ovog albuma “Verbalni Delikt”. SETT je već imao priliku blagosloviti mikrofon na starim PHAT KSET večerima, a za ovaj put nam je pripremio prikaz njegovog nadolazećeg albuma, kojeg ćete uskoro moći čuti u vašim slušalicama.

MC Sunny Sun iz Rijeke sa trenutnim boravištem u Sloveniji učinio nam se kao pravi izbor u ovo vrijeme jer nam se svidio njegov funky stil i produkcija. Sunny Sun će baciti par traka sa svog nadolazećeg LP-a, na kojem produkciju potpisuju DJ Goce (MK), DJ Borka (SLO), a
vrlo vjerojatno i naš i vaš zagrebački MR. Dirty Hairy.

Naravno, Vama za ljubav, (Fresh Delivery DJ’s) Dirty Hairy & DJ Chill će biti zaduženi za bacanje bombi s gramofona na plesni podij.

Domaćin večeri na mikrofonu bit će već svima znan Špicizzle MC Grizzle Dizzle, MC Magellan (Sinestet) koji će vas voditi kroz večer. Ako mu pokažete dovoljno ljubavi, možda i baci koju lajnu na mikrofonu.

Za odličan Warm up kao i zadnjeg puta bit će zadužen jedan jedini KSET-ov gramofonski i glazbeni znalac DJ No Def.

SUBOTA 28.01.2012.
OD 22:00H DO 03:00H
18+ I 15KN U PRETPRODAJI / 20KN NA ULAZU

PRVIH 100 POSJETITELJA DOBIVA PHAT KSET MIXTAPE

William “Bootsy” Collins got his big break when James Brown plucked him for the original line-up of his groundbreaking early 70s backing band, The J.B.’s. But it wasn’t long before the charismatic Bootzilla – armed with his “space bass”, elastic vocals, and mischievous wordplay – would become a funk icon in his own right. Watch him tell his story to Andrew Noz during the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid.

Another great watch, courtesy of RBMA folks.
