Turning the Screw: Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, Suge Knight, KRS-One, Snoop, Lil’ Kim, Yung Berg and More
Welcome back to Turning the Screw, Rocks Off's weekly rap post. It probably won’t rhyme, at least most of the time. E-mail tips to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, homies.
Single of the Week: Dwane Sweazie (above), “Drank”
Wire To Wire
We heard the newZ-Ro
album,and it’s dope
Vibe Magazine is not a fan of white musicians.
Aw hell, hide your jewelry (women, hide your faces): Suge Knight is out on bail.
(right) doesn’t know how you console a family member at a funeral, buthe feels a nice punch in the head helps with the mourning
Can someone please explain to Solange how the “On Air” sign works? Thanks.
Our thoughts go out to Dr. Dre and his family.
(right), most likely, will not be invited toFaith Evans’s next Christmas party
K-Ci is either a really great performer, or a really shitty friend. (Jo-Jo passes out at the 1:52 mark.) Check out how the big guy who comes onstage completely ignores the possibly dead K-Ci in lieu of picking up the microphone. How badass is that?
Three CDs out this week you otherwise never would have heard of (but are available on amazon.com nonetheless):
Hustle or Die, Made In The Streetz
Grandmaster Caz, Mid Life Crisis
Kasualty, Player Seduction - Shea Serrano
