Track: Nicolay's "Lose Your Way" with Carlitta Durand

"Pardon, but could I beg of you some chai?"
  • "Pardon, but could I beg of you some chai?"

We don't necessarily think Nicolay is a yoga-practicing pacifist or some dude who thinks we should all hold hands, swill chai and sing songs of joy. But when he says stuff like this in his press releases, we have to wonder: "What fascinated me most about Shibuya was the co-existence of ‘old’ and ‘new’ in seemingly perfect harmony. The most advanced technologies and innovations exist next to traditions that are rooted in thousands of years of civilization.”

Live: Method Man & Redman tear it off

Method Man & Redman, Ghostface Killah

Lincoln Theatre, Raleigh

Thursday, July 23

The silence that fell over the Lincoln after an enjoyable (though not spectacular) set from Brooklyn’s Duo Live was puzzling. With nearly a half-dozen DJs in attendance, it seems like someone would have been spinning records to keep the room buzzing during the 20 minute break before Ghostface Killah made his way to the stage. Perhaps the lack of house music was for the best, though, as the onslaught that followed from the Wu-Tang emcee and Method Man and Redman’s Clan/Def Squad alliance meant that we needed to save all the energy we had.

Durham Police Department to "fuck with this rap game"

Leaning from the window of a gleaming 2009 Cadillac Escalade modified by rapper Xzibit in a process known as "pimping that ride," Durham Chief of Police Jose Lopez announced the Durham Police Department's latest plan for connecting with Durham's troubled youth Wednesday morning.

"We've decided to start a hip-hop record label," Lopez said, smiling after he slid the gold grill from his top row of generally white teeth so as to enunciate more clearly. "We've tried all sorts of things to connect with the kids in Durham—after-school programs, Popsicles, multiple arrest warrants. Now it's time we fuck with this rap game."

The label, Urban Renewal Records, will launch its efforts late in the fall, Lopez said, with an album entitled Take My Bull By Its Balls from young Durham rapper Geoff Magnum. The first single, "Get Up Off That Chronic," is a 9th Wonder production and will be premiered on K97.5 FM in early August.

Also, nothing in this post, aside from the photo, is true—well, as far as we know.
