    Smoot On Shamed Texans LB Brian Cushing

    The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Have something you always want...

    Eight Memorable Frank Frazetta Album Covers

    No man has ever been more able to make pure bad-assery out of ink and canvas than Frank Frazetta. In fact, Rocks Off's initial attraction to his wife owes much to his obsession with Frazetta's pale, almond-eyed, raven-haired heroine in his painting "...

    Ben Folds, Still Fighting His "Piano Man" Side

    ? For more pictures from Ben and Kate, see our slideshow here. It's been awhile since Aftermath came out of a show so ambivalent, so very "eh" that we almost feel bad about even attempting to review it. It didn't offend us in any way, nor did it...

    Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga (Again!) Headed Our Way

    After paying tribute to influences such as Ella Fitzgerald and the just-passed Lena Horne (R.I.P.) on 2006's retro-swing Back to Basics, Aguilera makes a hard right into Madonna electro/dance territory on Bionic, set to come out next month. Fans who ...

    Treme: We're Your Neighbors

    The opening scene was one of the most fanciful of any Simon production, but the departure from reality worked: Ladonna dreamed she found David and visited him in a prison cell, only to see he was rooming with the killer who'd swapped ID bracelets wit...

    Sage Francis

    No one MC defines indie hip hop better than Sage Francis. The unlikeliest of natives from Providence, Rhode Island, he owns his own label (Strange Famous), his fans are mostly urban white kids and, most important, he walks the line lyrically between ...

    The Village People

    Church for Thugs - 50 Cent decides to be a little more selfish on upcoming LP Black Magic.

    50 Cent has avoided confrontation exactly never in his 12-year career. His 2003 debut full-length Get Rich or Die Tryin', meanwhile, is universally hailed as a hip-hop classic. So he's been a polarizing force for a long time. You could say that 50...

    You'll get over it, your initial disappointment that Erykah Badu's New Amerykah Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh, daffy title aside, is not nearly as mind-bogglingly deranged as you'd feared (hoped?) it would be. You had reasons to assume a certain level of...

    Scott Ritter has just walked back into the soft light and currently calm atmosphere of Khon's Bar (2808 Milam). He picks up the cell phone he's left at the bar, clicks the screen on, then shouts "OH YES, MOTHERFUCKER!" to nobody in particular. ...
