May 30th, folks. If you haven’t heard, it’s gonna be a hot summer. Shout-out to Best Kept Secret and the Allido crew. I feel a Soundtrakk/Lupe type connection going on…

Wale – “The Crazy”

Also, I don’t see Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on the tracklist as previously reported… maybe she’s on one of the skits.

Emo’s is the hallowed ground of my most legendary Austin memories. The smell, shape and odd half-roof shielding packed bodies from the sky above will be burned irreparably into the grooves of my college experience.

Euroboy of Turbonegro surfing the crowd while guitar solo-ing, getting crushed in the Le Tigre moshpit and findin’ relijun at the De La Soul revival church are just a few of the stop-and-pinch-yourself music memories that I cherish from that shitty juke joint.

Tonight will add a chrome star to my track record as I stand in awe somewhere near the feet of Houston’s living legend Bun B. I am totally going backstage.

Check out this lil’ mama dancing to Rye Rye’s “Shake It To The Ground.” She is so awesome! I like how Hannah Montana is dancing along. This girl needs to teach ALL those fools on Sixth Street how to move!!!

Funky Fresh Friday, damn I’ve missed you. May 9, 2008

For serious, y’all. I’m in this mental energy apocalypse which has me mopping the floor for distraction while sweating bullets. Pray for this bitch!

For my return, I’d like to show you the instant classic vid for M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes.” I know that most of our readers already have this as their ringtone or whatever but we have never featured an M.I.A. video on BOJ before and what kind of third world democracy would we be if we dinnit, innit?

It also aligns perfectly with some of the original tenets of the Funky Fresh Friday concept, meaning more than a few gold chains, printed windbreakers, cash money, counterfeit goods, hot girls… Just watch it.

[photos c/o Kanye West]

The stadium lights drop into pitch darkness. A blood-curdling shriek from the masses responds. A screen of stars whizzes past on a giant screen as Kanye’s voice rises over the heavy beating of drums, which were as tall as a grown man. The Earth has lost all creativity, and he has accepted the mission to save it. This is his last mission before he heads home.

Kanye West’s Glow in the Dark tour, featuring Rihanna, N.E.R.D. and Lupe Fiasco, descended upon the Frank Erwin Center Wednesday night. Tickets were preciously priced, but thousands of students and teenage Lupe-lovers saved up weeks of allowance to attend. (more…)

Remember how I told you we’d cross paths with Nikki Jean again? Well one of our sources called us up the night before Glow in the Dark (more on that to come, believe me) to say a certain someone might be available for an interview. (more…)

Fader has a pretty in depth Q&A with the infamously elusive, legendary California hip-hop crew, The Pharcyde. As previously mentioned, the foursome are scheduled to reunite at Rock the Bells, but they apparently haven’t been in the same room together for over a decade. Stimulate your brain cells here.

Nikki Jean is cooler than you April 23, 2008

OK, so we first fell in love with R&B and alternative artist/Nouveau Riche frontwoman, Nikki Jean at the Lupe Fiasco show back in January. That’s when we found out she has a pretty well read and maintained video diary about all her adventures touring to support The Cool and with her band, and at SXSW w/ N.E.R.D. etc. Now 2dope‘s brought her back into our lives with the above video featuring none other than Mikey Rocks of The Cool Kids. The two chat about a failed encounter w/ Jay-Z and their love for Jonah Hill of Superbad fame. Definitely a cool little convo.

We shall meet again, Ms. Jean.

Fader has a ton of photos and footage from the last leg of A-Trak and the boys’ tour in San Francisco last weekend. If there’s anything we learned at South By, it’s that Fool’s Gold knows how to throw a party. I used like three exclusive tracks off a DJ sampler A-Trak gave out for Juicy Jams.
