Mick Boogie & The Beastie Boys - Grand Royal Mixtape

In honor of the Beastie Boys being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week… I thought it’s finally the right time to do a Beasties mixtape. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time… something people have asked me to do for a long time, actually… but I wanted it to mean something. Now, it’s finally the right time.
I present to you Grand Royal. 80 minutes of my favorite Beastie Boys rarities, remixes, demos, live versions, out-takes, and more. If you’re a Beasties fan, I guarantee you find something new and exciting on this mix!

Just Listen: WTF with Marc Maron Featuring Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart sits down with Marc Maron to talk about his rise and fall and rise again in comedy.  I didn't realize just quite how big Kevin Hart is until I heard this podcast and I actually like him and have seen him in concert.  There's also a cool discussion on the business side of television.

Jon Connor - The People's Rapper

Ice-T's Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap Trailer

I feel like I have heard about this documentary forever. Remember when it was simply titled The Art Of Rap? The feelings that I had when I first saw the original trailer, over a year ago, haven't changed one bit. I can't wait to see this. Hopefully it's not pushed back again.

Coming June 15- Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this art form that he credits for saving his life.

Peter Rosenberg's Noisemakers Featuring Nas

Peter sits down with Nas as they discuss his simple motivation for rapping as well as the making of Illmatic and much more. Nas is apparently drunk, high or both and Rosenberg made the best out of an awkward situation.

Quick Questions & Random Thoughts

How does Warren Sapp go bankrupt when he's barely been retired from football for five minutes?  Hell, he went directly into Dancing With The Stars and on air positions at both the NFL Network & Showtime.

Why is assault & vandalism legal as long as a MTV or VH1 television camera is rolling?

Is it just me or are Wu-Tang fans not necessarily hip-hop fans but just like them as an oddity like the current generation views Odd Future?  So many Wu fans that I encounter may not even have any other favorite hip-hop artists from that era outside of Wu.
