The title should say it all, Yo! MTV Raps is back!!! Now don’t go getting all super-excited, it is only for a special airing on Dec. 4th. But you never know what it could lead to if the ratings are through the roof. The show will feature the original show’s hosts, Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dre and will have Q-Tip, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa, Questlove, Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy, Phife, Common and much more as special guests.
I would rather MTV treat this special as a new show, as opposed to a memory lane episode. Let’s show the younger cats how we used to do it.
Don’t know about you all, but I am tired of the Otis remixes we have been bombarded with over the last week or so. But just in case you want more, here is DMX and he brought along his good friend Busta Rhymes.
“Hey dog, they thought we were going to mess up all this money” – Jay-Z
Last night Kanye West and Jay-Z threw a listening party for ‘Watch The Throne’. And from the the tweets that we saw, WTT will be a classic if you let them tell it. But we will be the judge of that Aug.8 or 12th if you want the physical copy. The listening party was held at The Hayden Planetarium in NYC, and the usual entourage was there Beyonce, Kelly, Solange, Jada and everyone else on Twitter.
DD172 is in full promotion mode. First we get a taste of Jim Jones Hip Hop Monologues featuring Busta Rhymes and Dame Dash. We also get videos from Music Videos for Curren$y with Stalley, McKenzie Eddy with Sean O’Connell, and Ski Beatz with Anarchy, Rino Latina II, McKan, and Maccho.
Old School rap crew, Leaders of the New School have announced plans to reunite onstage the first time in over 15 years, minus their most popular member, Busta Rhymes.
On Dec. 23, the remaining members — Charlie Brown, Dinco D. and Cut Monitor Milo — will be performing at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, N.Y. with fellow ’90s rappers Son of Bazerk and Grand Daddy I.U. Best known for their appearance on A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Scenario,’ the Long Island rap group disbanded shortly after releasing their second album, ‘T.I.M.E.,’ due to fans’ increased interest in the blustering and energetic Busta Rhymes as a solo artist.
Though they reunited on Busta’s 1996 debut, ‘The Coming,’ Busta and the rest of the group have continued a fairly rocky relationship ever since. Dinco D. released a diss track in 2006 entitled ‘F— Touch It,’ in response to a perceived diss on Busta’s ‘Touch It’ single. “I heard it on a Clue mixtape where [Busta] called us a bunch of b—-es,” Dinco said in a 2006 interview. “He said some real foul s—, saying my crew’s acting like a bunch of b—-es…and following conversations, he’s just been mad disrespectful to me.”
In addition to the reunion concert, they have confirmed that they are recording a new album with Public Enemy producer DJ Johnny Juice, who is also performing at the reunion
