AG Wire / Q-Tip Talks The Renaissance & Tribe Documentary
« on: October 22, 2008, 10:34:20 PM »
October 22nd, 2008 | Author: Edwin Ortiz

Though it’s been nearly a decade since Q-Tip’s last official studio release Amplified, the buzz off his new single “Getting’ Up” and its a**ociated album, The Renaissance has been exemplary of the type of emcee he is. Stopping by Hot 97’s Angie Martinez Show, Q-Tip discussed his new album and also a documentary currently being filmed on A Tribe Called Quest.
After co-signing the likes of Charles Hamilton and Lupe Fiasco as fresh faces that are progressing the art form of Hip Hop, Q-Tip explained the title and musical direction of his upcoming release.

“You know we always have these conversations about ‘yo this is wack, this music is wack,’ and whatever, [but] we turning the corner," explained Q-Tip. "I feel like [The Renaissance] is speaking to a resurgence of some Hip Hop music that is just good.”

Another topic that "The Abstract" spoke on was a documentary being produced by fellow New York emcee, Nas. The significance of their relationship dates back to the early 90’s and Nas’ debut album Illmatic, for which Q-Tip produced “One Love” and subsequently was featured on the track.

Obviously behind the project 100 percent, Q-Tip stated, “Nas is producing a documentary on A Tribe Called Quest that Michael Rappaport is shootin’. He approached me like, ‘I wanna shoot it.’ He’s getting into film, and he’s producing it. I saw some of the rushes [unedited footage] and it looks crazy.”

Q-Tip’s album The Renaissance hits stores Nov. 4.

AG Wire / MF DOOM Addresses Rumors Of Fake Performances
« on: October 22, 2008, 10:32:16 PM »
October 21st, 2008 | Author: Edwin Ortiz

Though heralded as one of Hip Hop’s most acclaimed artists, MF DOOM has been a mystery behind the mask. In recent times, it has gotten to the point that fans are questioning the validity of DOOM shows, unsure if the man on stage is in fact the real MF DOOM. Speaking in the recent issue of Wax Poetics magazine, DOOM confronted the question of impostor performances, vying for a new perception. Putting his explanation into context, MF DOOM recapped a show from last year.

"I did some show, wrecked it, girls climbing up onstage and shit," recounts DOOM. "That was the first time that happened--but we was rocking, right? Somebody from the label was going to be there. I was like, 'Cool, he saw the show, and it was wrecked.'" Continuing on DOOM stated, "Next couple of days, I speak to him, and he was like, 'Good show, but a lot of people are saying it wasn't you!'"

Receiving the disconcerting news, DOOM was amazed to hear his character continues to fool people. "I lost fifty-nine pounds last year on some healthy shit, and I'm out there busting my a**, and niggas is still saying that shit? Niggas is caught up in the character part."

However, instead of killing off the impostor noise, MF DOOM stressed his shows are for the music, first and foremost. "Looking at it has nothing to do with what it sounds like," says DOOM. "A blind person could be at the show and feel it clearly, but don't see nothing of it. Don't matter what the shit look like. Look, was niggas rockin' or was niggas rockin'?"

AG Wire / Dj Babu talks about duck season vol. 3
« on: October 22, 2008, 10:23:45 PM »
October 21st, 2008 | Author: Omar Burgess

In addition to his status as an International Turntablist Federation titleholder and duties as a member of Dilated Peoples, DJ Babu has been displaying his ear for beats since dropping Super Duck Breaks under the moniker "Turntablist." Those unfamiliar with Babu’s production work on his own series of Duck Season mixtapes, were likely brought up to speed last year, when one of Babu’s breaks opened the trailer for Jay-Z’s “Blue Magic” single.

“To be honest with you, that was a lot of luck,” says Babu of his addition to the American Gangster project. “I released Beat Tape Vol. 1 last year, and Rik Cordero, who directed the trailer, just happened to be listening to it on his iPod. He played it for Jay-Z [click to read], and Jay loved it.”

Collaborations are more common than ever for Babu, who is also a member of the Beat Junkies. MOP appears on "Dearly Departed" [click to listen] and Bishop Lamont is featured on "My Opinion" [click to listen]. With his upcoming album, Duck Season Volume 3, Babu says he was able to call in favors from his collaborators to accomplish two goals.

“From the jump, my point was to put the spotlight on artists and songs that I felt needed more exposure,” Babu explains. “It’s like a full evolution. Everything I’ve done solo and with my other groups has led up to this point. On this one I produced, and mixed everything.”
Part of that evolution also includes an aptly titled collaboration between MF DOOM and Sean Price [click to read] called “The Unexpected” [click to listen].

“DOOM and I did a record, but there weren’t quite enough verses for a whole song,” says Babu. “I also had a song with Sean Price, Torae [click to read] and Skyzoo [click to read] that got lost when something happened to the Duck Down hard drive. I was wondering what to do and Ruck was like, ‘f*** it. Let’s just do a new jam.’ Since they had never been on a record together, I figured it would be a dope idea. He did an excellent job of bouncing off of DOOM and changing his style.”

With work on upcoming albums from Defari, and fellow group members Evidence and Rakaa Iriscience, Babu should be busy well into 2009. It’s left him with a wealth of material, which he already has plans for.

“It was only supposed to be 74 minutes, but I ended up recording 27 different songs,” Babu says. “'Duck Season 3.5' will be a bonus that I’m giving away. It’s like six or seven more tracks that didn’t have time to get dropped, plus some remixes. I’ve already got Alchemist, Evidence, DJ Khalil and some other bonus treats.”

DJ Babu's Duck Season Volume 3 will be in stores Oct. 28 via Nature Sounds

Artist: Jay-Z
Album:  Kingdom Come
Song:   Kingdom Come

[Intro] (Sample courtesy of "Superfreak" by Rick James)
I don't know what life will be in H.I.P. H.O.P.
Without the boy H.O.V. (I will be, I will be)
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor (Yeah)
When kingdom come, you ready? (I will be)
When kingdom come, I'm ready (I will be)
When kingdom come (Yeah, yeah) I'm ready
(Hey! Hey! Hey Hey Hey!!!)

[Verse 1: Jay-Z]
Now everywhere I go they like HOV you back
Up out the corner office out the coldasack
Where's Iceberg Slim he was the coldest cat
Get your swag back daddy where your focus at
Got to admit a little bit I was sick of rap
But despite that the boy is back
And I'm so evolved I'm so involved
I'm showing growth, I'm so in charge
I'm C.E.O. and yeah going god
I'm so indebted, I should have been deaded
Sellin blow in the park, this I know in my heart
Now I'm so enlightened I might glow in the dark
I been up in the office you might know him as Clark
But, just when you thought the whole world fell apart
I - take off the blazer losen up the tie
Step inside the booth Superman is alive


[Chorus: Jay-Z] (Sample courtesy of "Superfreak" by Rick James)
(I will be) The King Of New York (I will be) New York
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor (Yeah)
When kingdom come, you ready? (I will be)
When kingdom come, uh huh (I will be)
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah, yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor
(Hey! Hey! Hey Hey Hey!!!)

[Verse 2: Jay-Z]
I hear "hurry up Hov" when I'm out in the public
Cause niggas like it, you love it; We be it, you're of it
You breathe it, we need it; bring it back to the hustlas
Had to dust off the Hammer, dance - can't touch this
C'mon playboys, bring the cars back out
Cause ya boy Hov is back, you know them broads comin out
Got 'em dancing on the bankhead, like they from Bankhead
f*** Cristal, so they ask me what we drinking
I thought dudes remark was rude okay
So I moved on to Dom Cuvée Rose
And it's much bigger issues in the world, I know
But I first had to take care of the world I know
I'm from the bottom, so I still feel em from the bottom
Underdog before my cape, still couldn't stop him
Flash Gordon when recording, spark the light in the dark
Peter Park, Spiderman, all I do is climb the charts


[Chorus: Jay-Z] (Sample courtesy of "Superfreak" by Rick James)
(I will be) The King Of New York (I will be) New York
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor (Yeah)
When kingdom come, you ready? (I will be)
When kingdom come, uh huh (I will be)
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah, yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor
(Hey! Hey! Hey Hey Hey!!!)

[Verse 3: Jay-Z]
Just when they thought it was all over
I put the whole world on my back and broad shoulders
The War-Hova, but who you know took over tracks like that
Guess what New York, New York - we back
And I ain't never been afraid of a drought
Since I was six, seventeen been gettin money down south
Bout it, bout it, Master P
Ask the nigga Pimp C, ask my homey Bun B
I run the streets the streets don't run we
Y'all run, we chill still waters run deep
I repeat, sing a long with me
I run the streets the streets don't run we
Ladies sayin where you been Superman?
When niggas spendin ten million in media on my hands
The Bruce Wayne of the game have no fear
When you need me just throw your ROC signs in the air, yeah!


[Chorus: Jay-Z] (Sample courtesy of "Superfreak" by Rick James)
(I will be) The King Of New York (I will be) New York
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor (Yeah)
When kingdom come, you ready? (I will be)
When kingdom come, uh huh (I will be)
Not only N.Y.C. I'm hip hop's savior (Yeah, yeah)
So after this flow you might owe me a favor
(Hey! Hey! Hey Hey Hey!!!)

AG Wire / Fat Joe Talks Lil Wayne, Says He's Incomparable

October 14th, 2008 | Author: Slava Kuperstein

Fat Joe, busy working on his next album, took the time out to about another rapper's project - Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV.

“Lil Wayne, don’t bet against him right now!” said Joe. “Don’t bet against this guy ever right now. He calls me in the middle of the night: ‘Come to the studio.’ I get there, this nigga pressed play, and everything he played was super-duper phenomenal, number-one [smash]. He’s singing, ‘So I went to get her in my spaceship.’ Craziest thing you ever heard in your life.”

Joey Crack went on to say that while the Jay-Z comparisons may have been fine, Lil Wayne is soon to head into a cla** of his own after the sequel to Tha Carter III, which has gone over two times platinum.

“They compared him a lot to Jay-Z, and you could see where he was influenced,” elaborated Joe. “But after this next album — I’m not saying he’s the best rapper of all time, [but] you can’t compare him to any rapper in the world. Because no rapper has done what he’s about to do. That’s crazy! He’s a rock star, man. Hit mania!”
Fat Joe's next album, Nino "Dubs" DeLuca, like Tha Carter IV, has no set release date. Joe's album will feature Akon, Ron Brownz and Infamous.

Current top hip hop sellers
October 15th, 2008 | Author: Jake Paine

Regardless of selling over 500,000 less units than the week before, T.I.  did not budge, holding the #1 spot for the second week, after his third straight top-spot debut. Paper Trail ] held Metallica off by over 100,000 units as Atlanta's top-selling rapper is on likely pace to go platinum this week amidst an album campaign that's several singles from over. Time will tell how T.I. stands when Kanye West and 50 Cent enter the charts before year's end.

Top 200 Album Sales (Top 5 Hip Hop/R&B)


Rank             Artist                   Album                   This Week                      Est. Total
1                     T.I.                      Paper Trail          176,714                          746,075
13                  Lil Wayne           Tha Carter III      27,229                         2,550,507
15                  Young Jeezy       Recession             26,801                          516,476
21                  The Game         LAX                        20,809                         496,829

Having left Rap-A-Lot for Razor & Tie, Devin The Dude  gets a strong independent debut with his album Landing Gear [click to read]. Although released to mix reaction, the effort places the Dude considerably higher than Z-Ro, his former peer, who's sustained on the bottom of the charts for three consecutive weeks in Crack. Murs'  fell nearly 100 spots in the charts, despite a lively MTV presence. However, if Murs For President  can shop a single to radio, as witnessed a year ago with Lupe Fiasco's "Superstar," the Los Angeles independent veteran could have one of the more chart-long-lasting efforts of the quarter.

Nas and LL Cool J hold rank near the bottom of the charts. Untitled  cracks the 400,000 benchmark, and trucks towards a gold plaque by year's end. With Jay-Z, Jadakiss  and Kanye West, plus the present success of Ne-Yo and Young Jeezy at Def Jam, time will tell if the label continues to work its once flagship artist two short years ago.

Other Notables
Rank     Artist                         Album                      This Week                     Est. Total
