    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 ...

    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...

    Carolina Chocolate Drops

    The Pros of Khon's - Occasional outburst aside, Midtown's boutique bar is as laid-back as it is hip.

    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. ...
