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.
Here's thatDevin the Dude EP
that we kept forgetting to post. It's looking like his new album is going to be out of sight. Scarface is going torelease a mixtape
. We will check the internet every 20 minutes for the rest of our life until it leaks. P.S. Watch the video of 'Face talking about the tape. He seems crazy like a homeless person. Oh, and Big Pokey'sWarning Shot
tapecomes out Wednesday
. He's having a concert at The Roxy March 31. Bring your flak jackets. And your crosses. Z-Ro and Jay'Ton are supposed to be there too. We've been listening to The Kanye's808's and Heartbreak
a lot lately. If you didn't think that was one of the best albums of 2008, then you're a moron. We get you, The Kanye. We get you. Announcement: We will no longer be linking to videos of SXSW performances, so please stop sending them. You may, however, continue sending rap videos where a backup dancer's nipple is slightly exposed while she dances.

That's cool and all, but really we just wanted to link to thatLesbians That Look Like Justin Bieber
site again. Always funny. Asher Roth's manager tried toup Asher's credibility
.Yukmouth was robbed.
Hope Suge Knight has a solid alibi. Here's video of Nicki Minaj trying to pretend likeher feelings weren't hurt
when she got skipped on for that XXL Freshman cover last year. Akon is going to war with Sri Lanka.Yeah, the country.
Figure that one out.
