Tribeca Digital Studios and Dicks’ Sporting Goods come together for ‘We Could Be King’, a docu about two rivalry high-schools (MLK and Germantown High) come together after budget cuts. The trailer will inspire you (especially with Rick Ross being the coach of the squad…I kid). Pretty inspiring. This will be on ESPN2 on April 26th. Set your DVRs.
You know the last time Zane did an interview with BBC Radio, it was Kanye beginning his “I’m-going-crazy-as-shit” tour (that eventually ended with him being on The Breakfast Club and yelling at Sway). I digress. I’m sorry the site has been really Nas heavy lately, but dammit, ‘Illmatic’ is almost old enough to buy a drink, so let’s show love. Enjoy.
It took about five years (or maybe less) since the last season of ‘The Boondocks’ (which premieres tonight). So, to help out for the wait, Drama and company put out a mix for your worries. I’m downloading now. Enjoy.
The big homie Jah Freedom just put up a rmx. Not much to say other than peep it. Love this dude.

(Courtesy of EgoTripLand.com): Random Rap Radio says: Just hours after their April ’91 gig at the Town & Country Club in North London, DJ Premier and Guru [along with support crew Caveman] rock up at the studios of Capital Radio to catch up on some promo for the forthcoming Step In The Arena LP. [It’s] a rare as hens in Huaraches interview with Gang Starr. Fundamentally it’s the crew and Tim shootin’ the gift on air. There are too many really interesting topics bein’ bandied about to mention ‘em, so just listen up at your leisure. Check out Westwood gettin’ hyped when Primo kicks the knowledge on 10″ car-trunk woofers! Both of them give Tim major propage for stayin’ in his indy lane too. That didn’t happen that often back then.
One of my favorite emcees and most consistent (albeit criminally slept on). New album coming out but you can listen to whole thing now. You’re welcome.
Outside of being one of the most sought after producers able to give the backdrops for artists wanting to have something to remind them of hip-hop’s glory years, 9th Wonder has been a thriving voice promoting hip-hop in the academic arena. Now currently starting a Hip-Hop Institute at NCCU, 9th releases ‘Hip-Hop Fellow’ showing his journey as tenure at Harvard University. Check the trailer below.
Yo….You’re fuckin’ welcome. Been trying to find the “Crown Royal” joint for a minute. This is right on time. Download direct HERE. Stream it below.
