Black Milk – Give The Drummer Sum

Video for a track from one of my favorite albums this year, Black Milk’s Tronic. Not sure who directed it, but I’m assuming FMWJ did since he uploaded it.

Mos Def @ Amoeba

I want to go record shopping with Mos.
Also, someone open an Amoeba on the East Coast!


D-Pi’s an illustrator I’ve been following on DevArt for a while. I noticed he’s been doing a lot of work for URB Magazine lately. He’s got a great comic-influenced style, always impressive. Above is the cover he did for the last issue of URB.

Stones Throw Posters, Prints, Artwork

Stones Throw’s been doing a lot of art-related ventures lately. Now they’re selling prints including a poster for Dilla, Madvillain, Quasimoto, a show poster and a photo of Madlib by Brian Cross. I certainly can’t afford any of them. But check the Brian Cross signature below.

Illa J – Yancey Boys

Illa J, J Dilla’s younger brother, released his album on Delicious Vinyl last week. The album’s made up of Illa J’s rhymes/singing over some classic Dilla production pulled out of Delicious Vinyl’s vaults. It’s a good album, and it’s nice to see Illa J carry the torch.

Stefan Glerum – Crate Digging, Don’t Do It!

I have no idea who Stefan Glerum is, besides being an illustrator in the Netherlands. But his drawings have been posted on the Stones Throw forums a few times and I really like his style. This is a series of illustrations on why you shouldn’t crate dig. Hopefully there will be some more information about who he is as his blog is updated. Don’t do it!!!
