Righteous Kill

Hype over this film doesn't seem to have reached these shores just yet, but its only a matter of time. With De Niro and Pacino back together for the first time since Heat, this is gonna be big. Here's a little trailer for you.

Lil' Wayne's Ill Brain

Its not often I have anything to say about Lil' Wayne, except "what the fuck is that dude on?" (The answer to this is obviously sizzurp, so I'm not gonna say that again). However, I caught this video on youtube and it is genius. Its like a lil' insight into what must be going through Weezy's brain at the exact nanosecond he conceives his lyrics. So peep this, and imagine yourself as a psychoanalist delving into his psyche as this is probably the closest you're going to get, being that in every interview with him I've ever seen he seems to be off his fucking nut.

PS: Check out Damn I'm Cold off Bun B's new LP Ill Trill for some more Weezy ridiculousnesseezy. The beat is off the lil' heezy. Fa sheezy. (stop it).

Hip Hop Blues - Snuff The Ablist

Just thought I'd draw your attention to the new 12" dropping this week from my man Snuff The Ablist. Hip Hop Blues features yours truly alongside the legend that is MC Mercury from Gunshot, one of the most well known and respected crews in UK hip-hop history. Since Gunshot split up, Mercs has been out of the game for 5 years, and this track is his first return to the mic booth since then.

The B-side, Maelstrom, features myself again alongside Foreign Beggars' Orifice Vulgatron on a dark, dark beat by Snuff which allows us both to take the listener to the realm of nightmares.

The 12" is the first release from Snuff's forthcoming LP featuring the cream of UK hip-hop, scheduled to drop later in 2008/early 2009.

The launch party is at Cargo in London this Saturday night and features Snuff, yours truly, Mercury, Dr Syntax & Stig of the Dump, Last Skeptik and St. Anthony, and is sure to be a show not to be missed. So clear your diaries and get down to Shoreditch!

Anyway, until then, get your listening gear round this little sneak preev... POW!
