Gordon Gartrell Radio: Episode 1

Gimme a good ole OkayPlayer late pass on this one. Phonte's doing a podcast a la Juan Epstein, except there is music on his, provided by DJ Brainchild. This episode finds Phonte discussing the unintentional comedy of fully-functional retards, and lamenting the death of Hillary Clinton’s dreams.

Mr. Carter - Lil Wayne feat. Jay-Z

I've been waitin three years for this.
Man I got summer hatin on me cause I'm hotter than the sun
Got spring hatin on me cause I ain't never sprung
Winter hatin on me cause I'm colder than y'all
And I will never, I will never, I will never fall
I'm being hated on by the seasons,
so fuck y'all who hatin for no reason

THE GO-GO EXPERIENCE: Joe Scudda, Joi, & PJ Moroton performing Live with the XO Band

Friday the 13th is approaching but no need to fear it's arrival! The Go-Go Experience will be your safe haven Friday June 13th @ D'jango. This month we are re-doing the PJ Morton show which was canceled due to the tornado that hit downtown only blocks from the club and just before the show started! (Crazy Night!) A lot of people came out even after the storm to see PJ but understood the circumstances. (Even though no one realized how bad the damage was until the next morning) This time around we have Joi and "Mr. Shoot the One With You" Joe Scudda joining him on the bill. Will be another classic...


Fresh Wale

Crazy story: So I'm in NYC with my boys Yusuf, Jasper and Jamal and we decide to ball out and hop in a limo to ride out to the club. The driver starts talkin to us and says, "You know who I drive for actually? You guys heard of a rapper named 'Wale'?" Of course, we're buggin out because we literally were listenin to 100 Miles & Runnin' on the way to NYC, but then the driver asks if we want to talk to him. So he hits up Wale, we get the voicemail ("Right person at the wrong time") and we leave him a drunk voicemail from the limp. (no homo) Here are three new Wale tracks... and because I've got an interview up in the District on Wednesday, you might be getting a lot more DC area music very soon.

Rid'n (Remix) - X.O. ft. Wale

These next two are off Wale's Mixtape About Nothing which will be available for download on May 30 over at Elitaste.

Video: "'93 Til Infinity" with Kanye & John Mayer

This is a little promo video for Opio of Souls of Mischeif's new solo project, Vulture's Wisdom Vol. 1. It features a clip of Kanye speaking on "'93 Til Infinity" which happens to be one of my all-time FAVORITES; during his Life & Rhymes special on MTV and Just Blaze and John Mayer jamming over the same track at The ALife Sessions.

New Kanye: Lollipop (Remix) & Put On

So after posting that "Everybody Nose (Remix)" yesterday, I realized that Kanye has been goin OFF recently. Then I checked out the new "Lollipop (Remix)" and I started thinking... maybe he's going super hard because the 2008 MTV Hottest MC rankings are being revealed FRIDAY. You can still vote here. , but I think it would be a shame if Kanye doesn't take the top spot this year. Yeah, Lil Wayne is still hot despite not dropping an album since 2005 (DAMN!) but Kanye's grind has been somethin serious lately. The remix to "Lollipop" is hot, in part because Wayne actually raps. I miss that guy. (pause)

Lollipop (Remix) - Lil Wayne feat. Kanye West

Check out this track "Put On" that's been out for a week or so that Kanye did with Jeezy. Production by Drumma Boy is bananas, and there's a lil more Yeezy with the autotuner.

New N.E.R.D. tracks

So I posted "Everybody Nose" a few months back and it's grown on me since initially hating it. "Spazz" on the other hand is BANANAS on the first listen and I'm probably looking forward to this album now more than any other. "Spazz" can be heard on the new Zune commercials, where you can get a glipse of the album cover for N.E.R.D.'s next album Seeing Sounds (not N.3.R.D., like previously thought). I wish I could have seen them at the Glow in the Dark Tour.

Spazz - N.E.R.D.

Check out the remix to "Everybody Nose" with the other two members of CRS (Lupe and Kanye) and Pusha T.
