Run-D.M.C., Metallica nominated for Rock Hall

CLEVELAND (AP) — Run-D.M.C. could “Walk This Way” into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The 1980s rap act, along with Metallica and the Stooges are among the nine nominees for next year’s hall of fame class, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation announced Monday.

The other nominees are guitarist Jeff Beck, singer Wanda Jackson, Little Anthony and the Imperials, War, Bobby Womack, and disco and R&B group Chic, the only nominee back from last year’s ballot.

The five leading vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted April 4, 2009, in Cleveland.

The ceremony typically has been held in New York but is returning to Cleveland after more than a decade-long absence. Tickets will be made available to the public for the first time.

Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five opened the door for rap at the Rock Hall as the first hip-hop act to be inducted in 2007. Now, Run-D.M.C., nominated in the first year of its eligibility, has the chance to follow on the strength of rock and rap blends such as the 1986 cover of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” and classics like “It’s Tricky” and “My Adidas.” …

We loves us some Odd Squad/Coffee Brovaz/Odd squad over here at buhbOmp and we wanted to share the love with you.

So Kayne’s released a mastered version of Love Lockdown, a song that I took as a cry for help from Young Yeezy. As it turns out, his VMA performance of the emo-diocre song must have prompted millions of Becky’s to break out the Visa’s because Love Lockdown is the #1 song download in both the Zune marketplace and iTunes… Finally something that Mac and PC users can agree on.

Top Songs downloaded from iTunes

1. Love Lockdown – Kanye West
2. So What – P!nk
3. Whatever You Like – T.I.
4. Love Story – Taylor Swift
5. Hot N Cold – Katy Perry
6. Disturbia – Rihanna
7. Paper Planes – M.I.A.
8. Crush – David Archuleta
9. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
10. American Boy (featuring Kanye West) – Estelle

There must be some sort of strange synergy between the artists on the iTunes top downloaded songs list, because whenever they collab, vomit happens. But I’ll get to that later…

Here’s the live version of Love Lockdown from Mtv’s 2008 VMA’s that has the Becky’s dripping in their A&F panties.

as instrumentals!!!

I’m not sure why no one thought of this before, especially when UBB was far more relevant in hip-hop and every dj and their mama wanted instrumental copies of all the classic breaks. 20 years plus after their initial release, El Michels Affair comes through with expert remakes.

Wilson Pickett or El Michels Affair? You be the judge:

Now if they can only remake Take me to the Madri Gras without the bells and smarmy organ leads…

You can pick up the UBB instrumentals here.

I didn’t want to sully the sanctity last blog post with anything unrelated to my mid-life crisis, but I just had to post another MeLo-X related download. Skimming over the MeLo-X blog, I stumpled upon this gem, The way I see it Remix Ep produced by none other than MeLo-X.

Although, it could use a considerable amount more Saadiq, you still need to download this.

I suppose it’s my middle aged crisis creeping in early, but I sorely miss the times when I was a heartbroken simp over some new faceless, nameless girl that is now more of a idea than a real actual person. Somehow this song reminds me of those youthful, innocent times before the true weight and burdens of adult life took their toll on my hairline.

MeLo-X (above) pays invokes the spirit of the late, great J. Dilla with “And I know (Treat her right)”. Peep game @ 320Kbps.

 King Most X Obama

King Most X Obama

Big up to the dude King Most for blessing the intrawebs with an uplifting mix celebrating the historic nomination, campaign and eventual swearing in of the next president of the United States, Barack Obama. Enough of my thoughts, here’s what King Most had to say about the mix himself:


The intent of this mix was to try and capture what WE’VE all been feeling these past months: hope, struggle, and the importance of facing a challenge. It also serves as a reminder, and perhaps an introduction to what OUR candidate is all about. With that being said enjoy, register, & get involved

When Kanye attacks…

In: Music, Video

I thought it couldn’t get any worse for my dude Kanye after dropping that horrible Love Lockdown crap just yesterday. Does hitting rock bottom musically have any effect on an artist’s mindstate? Methinks so.

I present Exhibit A:

Kanye Warhol

This pic was taken on MONDAY!!!

Exhibit B:
Video of Kanye smashing a $10K camera in a crowded LAX airport terminal. “There ain’t no police”


(AP) — Police say they have arrested Kanye West at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of vandalism after an altercation with a photographer.

An airport spokesman says police also arrested West’s bodyguard shortly before 8 a.m. on Thursday.

Airport spokesman Marshall Lowe says early reports are that West got into an altercation with a commercial photographer and a camera valued at more than $10,000 was broken.

The incident happened before West and his bodyguard, who was not identified, went into a security checkpoint at the airport.

Lowe says police are continuing to interview witnesses and West may be booked later this morning.

A call to West’s publicist in New York was not immediately returned.

And of course, Exhibit C:
Love Lockdown



DJ LIL TIGER starts things off with a love-themed Soul set with splashes of classic disco and contemporary R&B. EMPANADAMN holds it down in the second half with a mesh of synthy dance, pop, Hip-Hop and electro.
