In February , Jones witnessed a car accident from the window of his Brooklyn recording studio. He and a friend ran to the accident scene and organized about a dozen onlookers, who assisted in lifting the Ford Mustang—rescuing a 4-year-old girl from the wreckage.
She was taken to a hospital with first and second degree burns. Using a false name, Jones visited the girl in the hospital frequently until he was spotted by members of the media. The evening following the traffic accident, Jones rushed on-stage unexpectedly as Shawn Colvin took the stage to give her acceptance speech for Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards, and he announced he had recently purchased expensive clothes in anticipation of winning the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album that he lost to Puff Daddy.
As Jones took the stage to a round of applause, he asked the audience;. We teach the children. You know what I mean? Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best, Okay? I want you all to know that this is ODB, and I love you all. He was issued bench warrants to stand trial after he failed to appear in court numerous times. He was arrested for criminal threatening after a series of confrontations in Los Angeles a few weeks later, and was then re-arrested for similar charges not long after that.
Jones was cleared by a grand jury and insists that the officers had been scared by his cellular phone. No weapons or shell casings besides those of the officers were found in the vehicle or near the scene. Deep into their career, Yo La Tengo's sense of craft is intact.
On several levels, David Bowie's 24th studio album is a cunning act of sleight of hand. How you doing Jermaine? Massive shout out to Reyna Brady for coming through with the spoken word. The powerful words here are sure to uplift and uphold our women. He has evolved his sound as of late but this takes it back to almost that Little Brother type era.
But little did the fans know that the bossman of Jamla Records was bringing two familiar faces with him. The fans in the vicinity lost their minds as they bear witnessed Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh with 9th on stage together… this could only mean two things: a reconciliation has happened and two, a possible new album. A dream come true right? Well almost. Hip Hop is Knowledge.
They start bad mouthing the genius producer on social media. Very upsetting and ignorant to hear. It was all a distraction.
Over to you Mark Mcauley…. Everything 7. Picture This 8. Work Through Me. This is a beautiful welcome back for the once trio turned duo, and for the right reasons. Not only have Little Brother shown that they can be successful without their super producer, but in the process they have his blessing.
Take a bow fellas. Now in , Nas finally unleashes the sequel to The Lost Tapes, with the predecessor held in high regard by the fans, the pressure is on Nas to come through here. When it comes to Nas, fans love to play the comparison game, so we are going to do the same thing here. The way the album starts off, one would think the listener is at church with arms spread out and head tilted up with eyes closed as if the heavens have opened up.
We already know by the recent interviews that these are based on the last four album releases. As we enter the most polarizing track of Nas career… we know he can have his creative moments. On first listen, your confusion will go into overdrive. From that point, you will either decide to listen to it multiple times to absorb it or immediately dismiss it. Now the Lost Freestyle screams NAS all day long… Statik Selektah nailed this sound perfectly and becomes one of the albums highlights… one would think that fans on social media completely forgot about this being played in the initial trailer and focussed all of their displeasure on the track previous.
To keep the zoning out going, Statik lets the beat ride out, always a beautiful thing… Nas is also one of the few non-Wu artists on the planet who can rhyme crazy over a RZA beat, we know how unorthodox they can be… this time Nas directs his verbal intercourse over oriental sounding sonics and a Renaissance sample.
In this tune he contemplates getting married again after the failure of Kelis and RaVaughn providing the chorus enforcing our young women to respect themselves. The way Nas is talking in this video? After this mix, I will be following up with more new mixes for everyone to enjoy.
I have a few in the works now. Stay Tuned Please share these mixes on your social media. While other DJs are trying to make people pay, I have always given away dozens of my mixes for free. I just want people to hear them. This month he is on tour with Royce 5'9" promoting their new album together.
This last week i filled in for him. This is my set. It's a lil under two hours of raw new hip hop. I have been finding it increasingly difficult to find new songs i truly like, but these 40 or so tracks are the ones i liked the most.

It's an ode to many of the best hip hop djays and how it all got started way back when It is available now on 7" vinyl at fatbeats. Please take a listen here DJJS1 on instagram. For over a decade and a half they have provided NYC and the rest of the world with the go-to radio show for the hip hop WE love.
There is not many shows like this around the world, and certainly not in the home of hip hop, New York City. It is not a paid gig and not easy to maintain. Every week, no matter what, you can count on them bringing you new music. Over the years they have allowed guest Djays, like myself, and have hosted hundreds of guest MCees ranging from Redman to Homeboy Sandman. Every year they celebrate their anniversary in March with a "super-show", usually involving a guest-list most people would love to be part of.
This year, they decided to have different djays, who each in their own way have contributed to true skool hip hop. The line-up, as you can see is quite impressive. It was a fun night, lots of laughs, lots of good music, stories, and jokes. Each DJ played a 15 minute set, and there was 8 djays. At the end is also a quick scratch session. Enjoy the music Some time around late June i will be releasing another album.
The album is called. I'd also like to urge those who love all elements of hip hop, like graffiti, to follow my instagram page. Her husband David Gorrick, 38, told Daily Mail Australia that if it wasn't for the border closures, the family 'definitely' would have travelled seeking medical care.
