Big Boi – “In The A” (Feat. T.I. & Ludacris) Video

The bangingest banger from Big Boi’s recent album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors is “In The A,” the Atlanta superstar summit that also features on-fire turns from T.I. and Ludacris.

Big K.R.I.T. – “What U Mean” (Feat. Ludacris) Video

“What U Mean,” the slightly reprehensible fuck-or-get-out track from Big K.R.I.T.’s Live From The Underground album, has a new video from Decatur Dan, quickly becoming one of the most dependable working rap-video directors. This one has K.R.I.T. and collaborator Ludacris, recapturing some of his early-’00s guest-verse zeal, firing away in crisp black-and-white. I love the… More »

Future – “Same Damn Time (Remix)” (Feat. Diddy & Ludacris) Video

Future’s “Same Damn Time” is arguably the Awesomely Dumb song of the summer. Meanwhile, both Diddy and Ludacris have done enough work to earn lifetime achievement awards in the field of Awesomely Dumb.

Ludacris – “I’m On Fire” (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

The great Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. has been hooking up with some serious Southern rap big dogs lately, most recently T.I. on “I’m Flexin’.” And now he’s got a new track with Ludacris, a guy he previously worked with on his own “Country Shit Remix.” Luda’s new track is a slow-churning country-rap banger called “I’m… More »

Ten Hip-Hop Albums That Would Make Great Performances

Somehow, billing an artist to play their most famous release, exclusively, got super vogue all of the sudden. Nas did Illmatic. Erykah Badu did Baduizm. A Tribe Called Quest did Midnight Marauders. So, yeah, some good stuff got covered, but what else is there? In appreciation of the ever-strong Rock The Bells festival series, and… More »

Virgin Mobile’s Festival will be free just like it was last year. And it’ll happen September 25th at Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. Sir Richard Branson took a break from para-sailing or base-jumping or whatever from the Virgin Islands (seriously) to announce the bands.

New Blakroc – “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)”

The Black Keys recruited quite a crew for their Damon Dash-spearheaded hip-hop project Blakroc. Mos Def, Q-Tip, RZA, Jim Jones, Raekwon, Ludacris, and the ghost of ODB all appear. Hear a cut and look for the LP 11/27 AKA Black Friday. More »

Hip Hop Charts: If (Sum(O) >= Oodles) Then…

How can you have mad knowledge, science, or Professor without mad charts? Via Fimoculous, “rap represented in mathematical charts and graphs” does what it says on the tin, taking half-remembered or fully-loved snippets out of context and turning them into funny abstractions. For example:

Or, since the tag cloud shows Kanye i… More »

New Fergie (Feat. Ludacris) Video – “Glamorous”

Fergie Ferg makin’ us nostalgic for 1994 … before we ever had to listen to this shit. The sentiment recalls “Jenny From The Block,” except, ya know, without the hot singer. And what’s up with the spelling again? At least she spells her adjective correctly this time. She don’t care, she’s still real (as evidenced… More »
