    Drenched In Blog: Hip-Hop Math is Dope

    I stumbled across this MySpace profile this past weekend. It's Ms. Robinson, the rapping math teacher. Imagine if Trina or Lil' Kim rapped about multiplication tables instead of fellatio and diamonds, and you get the idea. She's actually kind of abra...

    Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams

    Wu-Tang Clan's fifth album, 8 Diagrams, comes at a time of group strife. Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have laid into Wu ringleader/beatmaker RZA for the album's creative direction. Calling Wu a sinking ship and RZA a "hip-hop hippie," Raekwon says t...

    Sebastian Bach - Angel Down

    Say what you will about his hair-metal pedigree. Talk dismissively about his being firmly ensconced in the reality-TV wasteland (Supergroup, Celebrity Rap Superstar, I Married Sebastian Bach, etc.). The truth is, ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach ...

    Boxed Out - Do we really need to hear every last studio detail?

    As Radiohead's two different releases this month prove, rock box sets aren't getting any more sensible. The "discbox" version of their new release In Rainbows is stuffed with extras ranging from the useful (extra music) to the aimless (expanded boo...
