While we're waiting for The Carter III

I'm so excited about The Carter 3, I'm almost as excited to hear the new Drought tape as well. There's been some rumours that The Drought 3 has been leaked on the net, but according to DJ Khaled denounces the version spreading on the net as a bootleg

"Yeah we just finished mixing it last week, so it should be coming out soon. There’s a bootleg floating around with a few of the songs that leaked, but that’s not even close to all of the tracks that are going to be on the real thing. Plus, the real version is hosted by me and Birdman, so with the bootleg, it doesn’t even have the same feel. But it’s ready to go. We’re just not sure when it’s going to drop yet."

I guess that means it's a preview of the preview, but being familiar with previous Lil Wayne tapes, I assume even that will be worth the visit to your favorite mixtape resource.

Meanwhile, here's a video snack from, Lil Wayne live at BET's Rap City Freestyle April 10. (Can't see the videos? Go here)

And a chopped and screwed version which sounds unusually good, especially considering it's a freestyle.

I'm a shark in the water, I swim with the big, so I don't have time to deal with Willie Da Squid

And if that Gillie Da Kid quote doesn't satisfy your craving for Lil Wayne drama, here's an interesting article contemplating if Lil Wayne confessed (Sgt. Pepper style) to killing a white girl. It's based on Weezys lyrics on the track Hustler Music on The Carter II.
I ain't never killed nobody I promise
And I promise if you try me
You gon have to rewind this track
And make it go back

The author reversed the entire track (and supplied a slowed down version as well). Can you make out the lyrics he claims to be recorded on reverse? I picked up the "it was september run her meat albini" which made me think what I heard, "jibberish"...

Ice Age flossin' with Mike Jones

Mike Jones takes flossin' to a new level and talks about his new album. That sure is one mean list of guests, makes you almost not care about Mike Jones at all... Maybe that's why he had to get that watch. Crazy...

UGK ft Outkast - International Players (CDS)

This has to be the coolest collabo ever! As far as my favorites go, this is all four of them on the same track. This a remixed version of the Players Anthem track on the Underground Kingz sampler I mentioned earlier. Andre 3000 is on fire these days!

01 - International Players (Clean)
02 - International Players (Dirty)
03 - International Players (Instrumental)

The Shield season 6

I'm offering you an olive branch, if you prefer shock and awe, I can arrange that too...

Bwahaha, my favorite badass is back, with the vengeance comparable to nothing. The intensity of this show is unprecedented in TV history, if you haven't seen this series, start now! The Sopranos..? Bah, I'd rather root for the "good" guys...

Mark Ronson - Version (and free liveset)

Here Comes the Fuzz from 2003 was a serious headsup in regards to this fella. Lately he's been proving to be a lot more than a good track selector and a skilled mashup chef, with production for Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen amongst others. I previously mentioned the sampler of this album, and it's expectations were more than met. This is a rock solid album, and it's definitely one of my favorites this year. This kind of funky 'pop'-ish sound works remarkably well and is one of the freshest flavors you'll get this year. If this album doesn't get it's fair bit of recognition, I'll start working promotion for free (kinda like now, go figure)... Don't believe my rants & raves of acclaim? Check out the bold tracks. If I had to narrow it down even further, go for tracks #2 and #13

01 - God Put a Smile Upon your Face (ft the Daptone Horns)
02 - Oh my God (ft Lily Allen)
03 - Stop Me (ft Daniel Merriweather)
04 - Toxic (ft Ol' Dirty Bastard and Tiggers)
05 - Valerie (ft Amy Winehouse)

06 - Apply Some Pressure (ft Paul Smith)
07 - Inversion
08 - Pretty Green (ft Santo Gold)
09 - Just (ft Phantom Planet)
10 - Amy (ft Kenna)
11 - The Only One I Know (ft Robbie Williams)
12 - Diversion
13 - L.S.F. (ft Kasabian)

14 - Outversion

Also, to prove this fella knows his way around two turntables, check out his guest spot on Pete Tong's Essential Mix which was recorded January 1. 2007.

Three great reasons to visit Rå this month

DJ Spinbad April, 20.

Celebrating the newest Kingsize issue with one of the greatest to ever touch the wheels of steel; DJ Spinbad! Oh my GOD! Support: Patski Love & Chris Stallion. It's Juicy baby!!!

Spinbad is an old favorite of mine. Looking for good music? You just found it.

DJ Noize & DJ Static April, 14.

Denmark's Finest DJ Noize (DMC World Champion) and DJ Static dreper The Joint back2back på 4 platespillere og 2 miksere. "My squad stays on point..."

Noize is actually a two time DMC World Championship winner. I'm guessing this is going to get a tad more technical than we're used to.

DJ Jazzy Jeff, April 6. - Poster says it all

Scarface cancels European tour

Can't say I wasn't expecting this, it was too good to be true. Scarface cancels Oslo and deprives us of the possibility to experience one of Houston-rap's godfathers. A true tragedy, but on the upside his replacement is far from the usual replacement letdowns. Saigon is going to kick it with Little Brother instead.


Bjørn Torske - Feil Knapp

Bjørn Torske - Feil Knapp (Click the image to get a copy)

Bjørn Torske is back with a new album. Kinda floats on the same vibe as Nedi Myra which again means it's a bit more available than Trøbbel. Same procedure as always: Bold means Beautiful.

01 - Hemmelig orkester
02 - Hatten passer
03 - Spelunker
04 - Tur i maskinparken
05 - Loe Bar
06 - Kapteinens skjegg
07 - Møljekalas
08 - God kveld
09 - Ørkenrotta
10 - Fembussen hjem

Method Man @ Rockefeller March 29 (2007)


Mr Mef dove into the crowd like maniac and tore the roof off at Rockefeller in Oslo. I know cellphone pictures are worse than crap, but how often do you get to see a rap legend standing on a barstool in the middle of the crowd.
