Video: The Next 48 Hours With Raekwon Pt. 1



Props to the God Raekwon, he did it!! Not only did he make an album which stood up to the original, but he showed the world that good music can still sell.

“The Next 48 Hours With Raekwon”, is a 3 part web series which goes behind the scenes during the album release week of “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2″.

Part 1 the day before the album release follows Raekwon to Hot 97s Rosenberg & Cipha Sounds Morning Show, Hall of Fame In Store Signing(Queens), Jam Master Jays Studio, Hot 97s Funkmaster Flex Show & concludes with the album release party at Club Santos hosted by Diddy.

ROC RAIDA RIP PT2

Roc Raida was a guy i really looked up to in the game, not only one of the best dj's, but a really cool guy. I first met Raida in 1995 in Subterania in Ladbroke Grove where he was djing for AG from Show Biz and AG fame. I remember he was selling his mix tapes after the gig for £10. I gave him some advice, that it might be better to sell them for £5 as £10 was way too much. He did, and sold all 100 of them. What i loved about Raida was that he was soooo laid back. He'd be doing some crazy juggle , and he'd make it look so easy, as if it was nothing.

Check out this mix from 1994 he did on Funk Flexs show. I remember i got this tape from my homeboy Dj Weston in Leeds back in the day. Props to Step one for posting it on his blog...Gonna dig out the mix Radia did for me on Kiss 3 years ago

NAS INTERVIEW

NEXT QUESTION....LOL

The Punchbowl Blog caught up with Nas at the Orange Rock Corps concert over in the U.K. and asked him about his new album with Damien Marley and his next solo project. When the interviewer asks him about his FAILure to submit a verse for “Verbal Intercourse 2″, he says that this is the first he’s hearing of it. When she specifically asks him about “Empire State of Mind”, he tells her to move on to the next question. Nevertheless, he goes on to say that Only Bult 4 Cuban Linx 2 and Blueprint 3 are two of his favorite albums right now and cites both as sources of inspiration. He also comments briefly on Kanye at the VMAs, Kelis and being offered the Def Jam presidency. Finally, he mentions Drake, Lil Wayne and Asher Roth as “new” artists that he respects.

R.I.P. Roc Raida



Taken from AllHipHop:

X-Ecutioners member and legendary turntablist Grand Master Roc Raida died this morning representatives of the DJ confirmed with AllHipHop.com.

“The legendary Grand Master Roc Raida has passed away this morning,” a representative for the DJ told AllHipHop.com. “Family and friends will miss him dearly. Please give the family their privacy.”

The source refused to give details of his illness or injury, or even the cause of Roc Raida’s death, but did state that previous reports of an injury during karate class or a car accident were inaccurate.

The rep confirmed that Roc Raida was hospitalized last week, but would only state that the DJ’s death was totally “unexpected.”

Grand Master Roc Raida started DJ’ing at the age of 10, after being inspired by his father, who was a member of Sugar Hill Records group, Mean Machine.

Roc Raida was an original member of the X-Men turntable crew, who later became The X-Ecutioners, a DJ collective that helped innovate the art form of turntablism.

He became internationally known, after taking home the DMC World DJ Championship in 1995.

Grand Master Roc Raida released 12 albums total as a solo artist and as member of The X-Ecutioners.

Roc Raida, born Anthony Williams, also produced tracks, crafting song or worked with artists like Smif-N-Wessun, Fat Joe, Ghostface, Black Thought, Pink, Linkin Park and others.

His scratching can also be heard on O.C.’s timeless Hip-Hop track “Time’s Up.” Additionally, Grand Master Roc Raida served as Busta Rhymes’ official tour DJ.

Rhymes expressed his condolences today, via his Twitter page, after Roc Raida’s death became a trending topic on the popular micro-blogging site.

"I just wanna thank everyone 4 ur love and support and ur prayers," Busta Rhymes Tweeted. "We will never let ur name die Roc...We love u and will 4ever miss u...RIP…I was told 2day, We r loosing [sic] all of these great people this year as a result of God calling his army because something is about 2 go down!"

RZA UK TOUR



Wu-Tang’s RZA is set to deliver his second book after 2005's Wu-Tang Manual, which was an introduction to the philosophy and history of Hip-Hop's original Dynasty, the Wu-Tang Clan.

The new book entitled The Tao of Wu, details RZA's own personal journey to enlightenment. By utilizing Hip-Hop lyrics, autobiographical anecdotes, and parables, the RZA explains how he was simultaneously inspired by Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Bruce Lee, and Islam.

The Abbott frames his philosophy under seven “Pillars of Wisdom,” which represent seven “key turning points in his life” that he hopes to impart on his readers.

The number 7 is symbolic in itself, representing consciousness in numerology, and considered a divine number in several faiths such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

According to the text’s publisher Riverhead Books, The Tao of Wu is a deeper reflection on the brief philosophical glimpses read in 2005’s The Wu-Tang Manual.'The Tao of Wu' is set for release on October 20th.



Catch RZA live across UK and Ireland on his Tao of Wu tour. Special guests on the tour include Shavo Odadjian from System Of A Down who will be appearing as part of the Achozen project alongside RZA and Kinetic 9, and Frukwan from Gravediggaz. Hotly tipped Liverpool artist Bang On will be opening up the shows alongside local support.
