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 Thanks, homies.

Kritikal Van Gogh, "Dog Eat Dog"

Beyonce had tongues wagging at this weekend's Coachella Festival when she joined husband Jay-Z onstage for "Forever Young" in a T-shirt with the words "punk-ass motherfucker" prominently displayed. Katy Perry, Kate Bosworth and Anne Hathaway didn't seem to mind the profanity.

Devin's new album, Suite 420, is out tomorrow. Get it. Wait - first read this. Then get it. Oh, and interesting aside: The track on there that Mike Dean produced was actually plucked from the annals of history. It was apparently recorded several years ago, and still jams. Devin releases 420 tomorrow night at Warehouse Live; if you can't see the stage through all the smoke, we're pretty sure he'll be up here somewhere.

Not music-related, but still: Here's Dave Chappelle talking about man-rape in Houston.
