This is going down, for real, and I can promise it will be super sloppy. The honorable Adam Weiss (Ham on Everything) has invited me to digitally spin an hour-long set of effed up rap music — swag, crunk, hyphy, trap, whatever — at one of my favorite Echo Park dives, The Short Stop. I will be joined by my oldest partner in grime, DJ Crazy Scotty Str8 From Rehab. 10/6 @ 10PM. Free fun.
Apocalyptic Urban Visions: E-40, Gil-Scott Heron
No words for this.
I had no words for this, but a second video tip-off from the Pedestrian, a.k.a. the good evangelist J.B. Best (check out the first two tracks on the Lala player, screen right), revealed a second gem in addition to the incredible new E-40 video. Eerily similar in its visual theme is the just-released clip from spoken word heavyweight Gil-Scott Heron. Two of the hip-hop’s biggest DNA-providers crossing paths in the night.
