Frank Zappa – Stink-Foot (Live in 1974)

Nas – Nasty (music video)

This new track from Nas – “Nasty” – is a big explosion of Nas right in your face. The beats are fast, hard, and funky. HipHop DX has the audio. New record coming from Nas soon. Me want. [Update: Now there’s a video available for the song. See it below.]

Good interview with Big K.R.I.T. in the Village Voice

Good interview with Big K.R.I.T. from the Village Voice. I liked this bit in particular, on musical influences: Influences? Well, it wasn’t just southern rap because I was heavily influenced by B.I.G. and ‘Pac. Nas and AZ and even Mobb Deep. OutKast has a special place in my heart, though. So do UGK and Scarface. […]

Phish – Rock and Roll (video)

Another brilliant cover by the guys. It’s got some jam in it.
