Nardwuar vs. Wu-Tang Clan (Interview) [Video]

Vancouver, BC – As a general rule, Nardwuar interviews do not disappoint. When 90 something percent of the infamous Wu-Tang Clan are in the hot seat, it’s nothing short of EPIC. Nardwuar connects with the Shaolin disciples to talk classic kung-fu flicks (in which RZA is clearly quite knowledgeable), early days with Prince Rakeem and The Genius, Nardwuar’s fashion sense, Blowfly (aka Clarence Reid) and the Poon-Tang Clan, sampling Syl Johnson (“Shame On A Nigga”), Spoonie Gee (and the Treacherous Three) and more.

East Van Summer Jam with Rascalz, HeatWave and more [Photos]

Vancouver, BC – If you know Eastvan, you know Strathcona Park; a regular spot for skateboarders, ball players and bottle collector, rich with Eastvan culture in the summertime.

FanFair presented their first big park production this weekend for the East Van Summer Jam with The Boom Booms, The New Royales and of course, some of our favourite West Coast emcees. We caught the Rascalz set on the greyish afternoon (gotta love a typical Vancouver summer tease). Red1, Kemo and Misfit ran through every classic fav from “Warriors” to “Northern Touch” and even had Checkmate join the party. Also in the cut, Tre Nyce, J. Dennis, HeatWave and his Seattle bro Spac3man.

KassKills caught some flicks from the dope day in the park – peep them below.

King Menny & Levi Jeans – Tunnel Vision [Audio] #SOTD

Toronto, ON – Today’s Song of the Day is a new track from members of the 8-member hip-hop collective known as GOODMORNING (formerly Great Minds). This is King Menny and Levi Jeans with “Tunnel Vision.”

After making music non-stop for about two years, GM members, Levi and Menny make a song reflecting the trials and tribulations they’ve faced while growing up and trying to achieve their goals in music and life. From having to change the group’s name from Great Minds to GOODMORNING, to losing group members, and much more… Levi and Menny remind us that it is a long and bumpy road to achieve your dreams and nothing good comes easy. Without further ado, we present “Tunnel Vision.”

fouseyTUBE: The Kanye West Yeezys Experiment [Video]

San Jose, CA – Funny new video from fouseyTUBE called The Kanye West Yeezys Experiment! Check it out below.

“The concept was simple; put a pair of exclusive Kanye West Yeezy 2′s (Red Octobers) which resell for over $5,000 in front of the public eye and see how society would react. The catch; place them next to a homeless man who appears to be sleeping. Do the shoes have enough power and control over civilians to cause them to go against their morals and steal the pair? Let’s find out.”
