    Glee: We're Gonna Keep On Rockin' Forever...Forever

    Idol Beat: Jamie Foxx, Why?

    This week's theme is music from the movies. For reasons that stretch the limits of understanding, Jamie Foxx was the musical mentor. I have nothing against the guy personally; Collateral was pretty good, and I know that we all learned to laugh and lo...

    Mayalino's F*** These WetWacks: A Mixtape Must-Have

    Rocks Off drowns ourselves in mixtapes, and we've come to one conclusion: It's hard to find a good one. But like a domestic violence-prone girlfriend, we keep going back to the mixtape circuit because we think, "he'll change." Mixtapes feel cheap, ...

    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 ...

    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...

    Erykah Badu

    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. ...
