Levi Roots’ Tears

One thing the kids of the post-print media generation are going to miss out on is the visceral thrill of having your name published in the letters pages of a magazine. Those of you with a British Newspaper Library membership and literally nothing better to do with your time could find the opinions4u of a 13-year-old me clogging up NME, Melody Maker and SFX magazine back in the day. Being a three-time When Saturday Comes subscribers email “Wikipedia Vandal of the Week”, while undoubtedly an honour, doesn’t really register in the same way. Read more…

A few weeks or so back, dunno when don’t care, The Game released a new mixtape. It appeared on the “new” page of Spotify and everything. It’s pretty mediocre, unless you really enjoy Young Buck guest verses. However, we had nothing better to do here at ILB, so instead we’ve decided to tabulate every single name drop in every single track and see if we could draw some mathematical conclusions from this.

Masta Ace & Edo G – Little Young

October 18, 2009 1 comment

“Get off my lawn” rap at its finest, as Edo G and Masta Ace team up to have every single fucking comment box from Youtube to 2dopeboyz going “Wait, are they dissing Little Brother”? This is all we’ve been bumping this week outside of our attempts to pin down every Mondeo Pop track in existence, so try and enjoy the intermission.

I liked this video better when Fergie did it, though. Remember when she saw how popular Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls were, so she got herself her own Fergielicious Harajuku Girls, who I believe were called “Two Black Women”. It was so exotic and exciting to see Two Black Women in a R&B video, so fair play to Fergie Ferg on that one.

All you need to know about style is in this photograph. You hung out with Cyndi Lauper when she was still hot, and Jimmy Snuka after he beat that chick to death. RIP big man. The Piper’s Pit with Cyndi is after the jump Read more…
