Houston rap trio the Geto Boys have been out of the game for a decade, but like plenty of other veterans on hiatus, they’ve decided to return by launching a Kickstarter campaign.

Watch Scarface’s Mystifying Nightly Show Appearance

The Houston veteran Scarface is, from where I’m sitting, one of the greatest rappers of all time, and he’s one of the few who still sounded vital decades after debuting. He’s also the author of a new memoir, Diary Of A Madman, which was published yesterday. This is awesome news, and I can’t wait to… More »

The Week In Rap: Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, & Major-Label Rap’s Age Of Weirdness

Not that long ago, major recording companies employed whole offices full of people whose whole purpose was to shape and mold rappers, to turn them into hitmakers. Maybe those people still exist. Maybe they’re up late at night, trying to figure out how to make Kid Ink happen. But the big labels, for the most… More »

Giorgio Moroder – “Tony’s Theme (Scarface 30th Anniversary Remix)”

In some secluded cabin somewhere, a curious type has found an old book of incantations and somehow read aloud the one spell that would reawaken a sleeping giant. That, at least, is the best explanation I can imagine for the reemergence of Giorgio Moroder, the Italo-disco genius who recently started DJing again and who ha… More »

Beyoncé – “I Been On Remix” (Feat. Bun B, Scarface, Z-Ro, Lil Keke, Willie D & Slim Thug)

A couple of weeks ago and absolutely out of nowhere, Beyoncé released the absolutely badass and aggressively weird single “Bow Down/I Been On,” on which she rapped in a screwed-up voice and repped hard for underground Texas rap. And now, for the “I Been On” remix, she’s rounded up an absolutely staggering lineup of Texa… More »

Stalley – “Swangin” (Feat. Scarface)

Rick Ross and his Maybach Music cohorts seemingly have the mainstream rap game in a chokehold, so it is extraordinarily head scratch-inducing that “Swangin’,” Stalley’s first single from his MMG debut full-length, has already been done by different rappers. The track utilizes the exact same title, the exact same beat, and the exact same hook… More »

Weeknd, Rick Ross Comment On Drake/Common Drama

A late entry to our 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011 list was the developing issue between Common and Drake, which may or may not have been based on general jealousy surrounding Serena Williams, of all people.
