It's still bigger than Hip-Hop, some people say Deadprez is a racist group and my answer to that statement is that You not listening to what they are saying. these dudes always put me up on something new every time I listen to their interviews.

Teaser: Stones Throw Doc for National TV France



Peanut Butter Wolf opens the doors of Stones Throw label. Meeting with James Reitano, Dave Cooley, Om'Mas Keith from Sa-Ra, Frosty from Dublab. Also featuring Peanut Butter Wolf, Dam Funk and Mayer Hawthorne. By S├ębastien Bauer & Lucas Blaya. come to think of it, I probably bought most albums released on Stones Throw. They respect and create good music, my only regret was when they came to Newcastle a few years ago for a festival I was unable to attend because I could not afford it, although I have seen J-rocc a few times, Madlib, Mf-Doom and Mayer Hawthorne . looking forward to Aloe Blacc in april and hopefully see Dam Funk, Peanut Butter Wolf in the near future.

BLACK THOUGHT NEEDS YOUR HELP:Collect Your Thoughts, a Black Thought Contest


Black Thought, Okayplayer, and  The Smoking Section present:
COLLECT YOUR THOUGHTS, the ULTIMATE BLACK THOUGHT COMPILATION CONTEST
Black Thought has been releasing recorded music since 1992 and has long since established himself as one of the most fierce and prolific emcees in history. In fact, give the man a hand.. no, seriously, give him a hand, he has lost track of how many features and solo joints (anything that did not appear on an album from The Roots) and needs your help…
The challenge to you, compile the most comprehensive list of Black Thought features and solo tracks for a chance to win one (or a combination of) the following prizes:
- tickets to a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with access to meet Black Thought and the rest of the band behind-the-scenes
- sit in on a studio session with Black Thought and the Money Making Jam Boys
- Tickets and backstage to the next Roots show in your area
- Autographed Roots swag (t-shirts, CDs, Vinly)
The contest starts today, January 7th, and runs through Friday, January 28th.  There are two requirements to be eligible to win. Once you feel like you have established the complete list of Black Thought features and solo, non-Roots joints, compile them in a Word or text doc in a numbered list (order does not matter). The trick is, you must also have mp3s (any digital format for iTunes is fine) of ALL the tracks on your list. Whoever submits the most comprehensive list will be deemed the winner but they must then send a ZIP/SIT/RAR file of all the mp3s on their list to win prizes or a new winner will be selected.
Email your submissions (lists only, no mp3) to collectyourthoughts@gmail.com
Here are a few to get you started:
This one is mine!lol!

FIX EXCLUSIVE:Deejay LKP Interview and Free Album Download

When you mention the North-East of England there is one city that stands out, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Although it's mostly known for it's crazy night life, women,alcohol and the unpredictable weather,there is one thing that never gets mentioned and that is the music scene(yep! I know you are suprised). I've lived in Newcastle for a few years now and recently I've noticed a change in the night life, there is a lot more underground (shout to the CooLaid massive) events now and it's like the city is split in two.With all of this going on there is one man that has always being at both ends and that is DJ LKP, he is what I would like to call a double threat! a smooth operator on the decks, having sold out events on a weekly basis in different clubs all around Newcastle and also a great singer. Had a chat with him over the weekend and we talked about his music and djing, these are some of the highlight.

9th WOnder+ Phonte+ Big Pooh = LittleBrother

I woke feeling great today, knew something good was going to happen or maybe something good already happened and I was not wrong! Phonte and 9th Wonder squashed the beef!! Shoutouts to Kooley High Fam for posting the picture @EST . I went straight on phonte's twitter page @Phontigallo and read all the lovely messages. It was amzing to read them, these North Carolina dudes are legends. They started a whole new trend of Hip-Hop and to find out they had troubles, it honestly broke my heart. As big big fan I  hoped and prayed that one day! they would find it in their hearts to squash the beef.
This is a great day for HIP-HOP, this is a great day for good music. as they say everything happens for a reason, maybe if they did not have the beef we would not have seen new artist like Rapsody, Big Remo, Theetomhardy, Tyler woods, Halo,Heather , Foreign Exchange(Phonte+Nicolay) and also Big Pooh going solo. who knows? or maybe I am wrong. 2011 is going to be massive! although Phonte says they might never make new music together, I believe little brother fans all over the world are celebrating right now! Big shout to Little Brother! Ya'll handled ya Biz like Men and we are proud! Congratulations!!!!!! wish Phonte, Big Pooh and 9th wonder goodluck in 2011.
