Turning The Screw: Guerilla Foco Clan, Z-Ro, Devin, Lots Of Bun, Kid Cudi, Juvenile 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 [email protected]. Thanks, homies.

Single of the Week: "Reflection," Guerilla Foco Clan

Wire to Wire

Of course, the universe spun out of control this week.

Devin, trying to lessen the sting of 'Ro's impending imprisonment, is starting to pop up places discussing his new album.

Now for your Bun B fix:

  • Universal Music Group just got way more dope.
  • Tony Yayo gave us a reason to buy his forthcoming album.
  • So did Grafh.
  • And French Montana.

Blasphemous Chopped and Screwed Youtube Video of the Week

Because you either missed it or forgot about it:

Juvenile was arrested after police found marijuana in his home. Whatever. Probably not newsworthy, but it gives us a reason to link to "Ha," the best song he ever wrote.

Ice Cube is readying his new album. We believe he's going to call it Exploitation of a Hallowed Hip-Hop Reputation: Are We There Yet?

Remember when 50 and Ricky Ross were fighting back and forth with each other and 50 released a sex tape that starred Ross' baby's mother? Oh, you don't? Well, the police do.

Somebody spotted T.I. out in public for the first time in a long time.

Krondon has an ill album cover.

Yep, rumors were true: Ludacris did a song with Criss Angel.

New album from Gorillaz.

So, some guy kissed Kid Cudi at a recent performance. No biggie, right? It's not like somebody will use this to make some really crude, ignorant, uncreative video parody.
