Erykah Badu Strips Down For New Video

In anticipation of her new album New Amerykah PT.2: Return of the Ankh, out March 30th, Erykah Badu has dropped the video for her first single Window Seat. The video gives a nice to Matt & Kim, for their video Lessons Learned. If you've seen it, you'll know to expect some strong, drawer dropping statements to be made. The difference being, most of us would much rather see Erykah Badu nude, rather than Matt & Kim.

The Art of Favianna Rodriguez

About 6 months back, at a loud bar in Kihei, I had the pleasure of meeting a woman named Favianna Rodriguez thru my friend Ian Kual'i. Months later, thanks to the magic wonder that is facebook's "suggested friends", I was able to reconnect with her. It was at that moment that I learned Favianna was an amazing artist and activist. I encourage you to check out her website and learn more about the causes she stands behind on her website.

Last night brought sad news for the underground hip hop community; it's been confirmed that Nujabes(née Jun Seba) died last month in a car accident in Tokyo. The Japanese hip hop DJ and producer was a mere 36 years old, and passed the same day the 7.3 earthquake hit the coast of Japan on February 26th. News of his death was not made public until yesterday when his label Hydeout Productions issued a statement online. Nujabes' family held a private burial in Japan.

Nujabes was known around the world for his jazz-infused, sophisticated take on hip hop beats, and a melancholy, nostalgic undertone to his music that has made for some of the most beautiful tracks to emerge from the underground. In addition to making music and founding a record label, he also owned influential record stores in Tokyo (Guiness Records, T Records) and worked on the soundtrack ofSamurai Champloo, a famous anime about samurai and hip hop culture. 

my all time favorite nujabes track!!! classic

Dave Nada – Moombahton

Dave Nada invented Moombahton (pronounced Moom-buh-tone) at his little cousin’s house party when he slowed an Afrojack remix down to 108 beats per minute. Since then, he’s been making reggaeton-tempo edits of Dutch house and tropical house, and clubs have been going crazy for the stuff. By popular demand, we give you five Moombahton edits for free!

Who Says Rappers Are Homophobic

Let me clearly state this: WE DO NOT RECOMMEND BUYING THIS ALBUM. IT'S PROBABLY AWFUL. However, we do recommend you take a moment to take this all it. Definitely a canidate for most homo-erotic rap album cover of all time. I checked everywhere on the packaging, but there was no "No homo" to be found. I happened upon this gem on a site with the lovely name
REALESTNIGGAS.COM. Charming, right?

Wu-Tang vs The Beatles: Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers

What happens when a man named Tom Caruana takes Wu-Tang acapellas from both group and solo albums and put them over new productions made vaguely from samples of The Beatles originals and covers? The answer: Enter the Magical Myster Chamers. Not much needs to be said about the album. The results are great and truely speak for themselves. Even if you cringed when you first read the concept, trust us, this is no Grey Album bullshit. Shit is ill.

Freshjive's Got A Problem

I'm all for making a statement. Have at it. But, when Hypebeast recently spent some time with Rick Klotz, the founder of Freshjive, I felt like no one had the heart to tell Rick that he runs a FUCKING CLOTHING LINE! On top of that, it isn't the most raw clothing line out there by a LONG SHOT. In this video he talks about the controversial video of Budd Dwyer, the brand’s new vision, and what to expect for Spring/Summer, and more. Something seems very contrived about all of this. I'll leave that up to you to decide.
