Three nights ago at a show in the ATL, De La Soul brought out 2/4 of A Tribe Called Quest. That’s right 2/4. And they had an important announcement to make. Are you ready?:
Jarobi & Phife Dawg The Other Half (2010 or 2011)…Um, you can add *crickets* here. Thanks, B.Dot. Please don’t tell Kamaal or Ali about this.

Here’s a closer look at how Weezy closes out each show on his current tour. Think he’s made up for this yet.

Big Daddy, yes big not little (pause?) talks to D-Nice about the making of his classic track, “Ain’t No Half Steppin’.” Take note rappers, when Kane’s pen hits the paper…ahh shit!

Here’s a clip from the upcoming documentary on the topic of much controversy lately. Watch the widow Liza Rios, various friends, associates, and Mobb Deep’s Prodigy discuss his issues with weight gain. Very sad.

At a recent AMW stop in VA, Da Snowman brought your favorite quarterback out of hibernation. Fuck being low-pro when there’s a rap show to go to! And his lil cousin’ rhymes too. Who knew?!

According to the Rap-Up, Drake reveals in the current issue of Rolling Stone his love for cookin’ up in the kitchen.
“I want to drop this album, then another, and then take a break to do film and study culinary arts.” Once he masters his skill, the aspiring chef plans to put it to good use. “Then I’m gonna open a restaurant in Toronto. Hopefully my name will hold more weight by then.”
Let’s just hope his album is a dish worth waiting for. *rimshot*

“Come on down, boyee!”
Did you know the leader of the Clan just happened to be in Cali on that suspenseful Saturday? After a rough Dusty Springfield-filled start, RZA settles down and performs a pair of Enter The Wu-Tang classics. Ah yeah, pardon me B.Dot, but we still love you Rakeem!

Here’s the latest visual from prisoner 59458-019. Contextually, I always viewed this song as a replica of Jigga’s “Beach Chair”, but after a few listens, it holds its own.
