the-meth-lab-cover-680x583-670x574

As announced, Method Man dropped his long awaited album The Meth Lab. Earlier this year when he dropped his first video for the opening track “The Meth Lab”, I wasn’t too impressed with the video, or the production in all honesty. Perhaps I expected something more than a cliché Breaking Bad series interpretation, but did not lose my faith in the Wu Tang legend. As one would expect from a rap great like Mef’ is, he really did cook up a great batch of fire tracks. I’m impressed by the uncompromising hard hitting (REAL) Hip Hop sound the whole album has and Method Man‘s flow is like fine wine. Gets better by the years. I’m also impressed by the features on the album, not just the expected Redman appearence and Wu affiliates, but also the fresh blood Tical brought on the album. All in all, it’s a very satisfying issue and I recommend all the real Wu fans cop the album and/or the cool merch he released with it, available at his Bandcamp.

A good samaritan posted a full stream on youtube (as did Method Man on his bandcamp), so enjoy the album and I hope you like it as much as I did.

Ever wondered what Big Puns son looked like? Ever wondered how he raps? He would make his daddy proud. Chris Rivers is now an aspiring rapper from New York, linking up with R.A. The Rugged Man and Team Backpack on various projects. With time I expect this rapper will gain stardom not just because of his fathers fame, but because of his own set of skills. Check out his freestyle over this classic Brand Nubian beat. Straight fire!

Definitely a dope remix for ATCQ‘s track Scenario featuring The Leaders Of The New School. Released on Jive in ’92 as a single and appears on their 2nd LP The Low End Theory from ’91.

ENjoy.

Exclusive images of Dope D.O.D. RobberyDope D.O.D. is well known for its groundbreaking, edgy, colorful videos.
For the video of Dirt Dogs however they chose a different path. They made a grimey, black and white video. One long sequence which takes the viewer with them on the road to something bad.

Dirt Dogs is taken from The Ugly EP, which was released last February. The Russian Producer OIKI made the beats. Dirt Dogs is one of the highlights in the set list of Dope D.O.D.

This is not how Sean Price’s new project was supposed to be released. He’s supposed to be on Twitter right now talking all types of shit about how much better he is at rapping than your favorite rapper – and then proving it with his rhymes.

It’s been two weeks since Hip-Hop lost a legend, a family lost their husband and father, and the world lost one cool muthafucka – but Ruck‘s legacy will forever live on. And right now, we’ve got eight Songs in the Key of Price to enjoy. So head on over to iTunes, purchase your copy, and remember the greatness of P!

UPDATE: Shouts to the trusty c-section, who just pointed out the iTunes version is condensed. If you want the FULL 30-track mixtape, you’ll need to head to Duck Down.

Hollywood is known for cashing in on a successful trend. Right now N.W.A and West Coast Hip Hop history are breaking box office records, and the result appears to be a follow-up to the $60 million making movie Straight Outta Compton.

TMZ reports Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Warren G, and Tha Dogg Pound are set to be the subjects of an upcoming movie. TDP member Daz Dillinger told the site a motion picture titled Dogg Pound 4 Life is currently in the works.
The film is said to include N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, but the actors from Straight Outta Compton will not be reprising their roles.

However, Dr. Dre’s son Curtis Young is already set to play his father. Cube and Dre are not attached to Dogg Pound 4 Life, but apparently Cube has approved the idea.
Tha Dogg Pound, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac were all central figures in the rise of Dr. Dre and Suge Knight’s Death Row Records. Knight will be portrayed in Dogg Pound 4 Life, but he is not going to be part of the production of the movie.
