Raekwon and Nas: Rich & Black – Video:

leave a comment »

Fresh off the LRG train, Raekwon and Nas team up for the video to “Rich and Black,” which 1. looks like it was a lot of fun to shoot and 2. proves that Nas is really sounding hungry right now. The newest single from the criminally slept on Shaolin vs. Wu Tang project, it gives you just a taste of how amazing this album really is.
Now I need to know why this isnt playing on MTVJams. Hrrrrm.

Enjoy, dammit.

Travis Barker is releasing A Solo Album. I'm mad no one told me about this until now.

Dope.

Not only does he have a Feature packed album due, Its been due for a little while and had been pushed back 6 month from its original date to February. While I’ve already seen one of the videos he directed and produced with The Cool Kids (ended up being his first single), I just attributed it to him being Travis and always being on everyone’s music. I can’t believe I’m just now figuring this out. But please believe it; I’ll be keeping an ear out for this sh*t from this point on.

Peace to Travis Barker. One of the hardest working men in the Music Industry today with one of the kindest hearts. An amazing career that includes almost 10 different bands, and 15 years of playing and being in the scene (on its way to 20 at this point), he could have one of the most diverse Musical Discographies of any Modern Drummer I’ve known (excluding Questlove). He has found and acceptance and respect within the Rock and Metal Community for his own work, and has been welcomed into Hip Hop culture with open arms for his powerful beats and ability to reproduce any hip hop beat you give him flawlessly. He is the Lil’ Wayne of Rock Drummers… he knew they way to keep his career alive was to diversify, keep different music bands and outlets at all times, and continue to hop on everyone’s sh*t. And aside from his music… dude has to be one of the strongest, most endearing human beings to grace the planet. From the loss of his mother early in life, to surviving a Plane Wreck… he is a testament to what happens to great people who work hard and keep their head up regardless of situations and circumstances. I genuinely liked this dude; always have.

The New Album, called “Give The Drummer Some” (awesome) is now slated for February 2011. And I cant wait. Confirmed apperances on the album? Linkin Park, RZA, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Game, Raekwon, Slash, Lupe Fiasco, Swizz Beatz, B.o.B, Beanie Sigel, Bun B, Tech N9ne, Corey Taylor of heavy metal group Slipknot, and Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine. Thats a lotta talent on one album. Hopefully it all goes well. Good luck to you; I’ll be supporting this.

For now, find his mixtape with DJ AM (I miss you dude), and enjoy the videos below.
