The 2009 Grammys: Just The Good Parts

NARAS’s flirtation with attempting to matter in 2009 went alright last night. There was so much promised we had Videogum come over to help us log our reactions across as many internet platforms as possible, and even with all that fun and all the performances it still felt like 32 hours of schelp in four-hour… More »

Last year’s Clash-sampling, terror-ific “Paper Planes” found a second life this summer, thanks to Pineapple Express and a bunch of hot rappers. Maya tells Rolling Stone, “The way human beings hear stuff, it’s like, suddenly a song sounds better to you because it’s been in a movie.” Sensing that we’ve heard enough shitty covers by… More »

New “Weird Al” Yankovic – “Whatever You Like”

T.I., Jigga, Yeezy, Weezy Sample M.I.A.

“Swagger Like Us,” a leaked track from T.I.’s forthcoming Paper Trail, samples M.I.A.’s similarly fibrous “Paper Planes” then throws Jay-Z, Kanye, and Weezy into the mix. T.I.’s clearly bummed about the early appearance of the West-produced track, telling MTV he’s “beating down the Internet as we speak.” Ouch. He continues:

A cosmic cast of hip-hop titans surprised the MSG crowd at Wednesday night’s Screamfest ’07 stop in NYC, when TI brought out Mr. More »
