Nas and Damian Marley are taking it back to a time when creative minds cooked up anthems in the basement. It’s neither rap nor reggae. It’s a hybrid of the two with some Mary Jane-inspired chops thrown in. From the early leaks, their upcoming collaborative album sounds like an epic. Watch as the two rave about Distant Relatives.

Fox News recently announced that the first installment of its Real American Stories series hosted by Sarah Palin, will air on April 1st. The series will feature interviews with Toby Keith, Jack Welch, and rapper LL Cool J. Wait, what? LL on Sarah Palin’s show? Well it turns out that uncle Todd never gave Palin an interview.
Hey kids, guess what? Bob Dylan may be the grandfather of hip-hop. Stop shaking your head, I’m trying to have a serious discussion here.

Behold the official video for MGMT’s “Flash Delirium” from the upcoming sophomore album, Congratulations, due out April 13th.
Shallah Raekwon hasn’t given up on pushing Only Built For Cubal Linx II to the masses. Peep the Chef’s music video for “Canal Street.” Is it just me or does Rae look like Beanie Sigel without his beard?
Behold Kelis in all her bejeweled glory. I salute her for challenging herself with a fresh concept (albeit with wonky execution). She also debuted something else at the end of the clip. Peep game.
Bey-Z F. Baby. Please make the baby.
Welcome to another installment of Cuban Linx. Jump in for a wrap-up of the hottest links and stories.
Phonte unearthed this Little Brother gem earlier on Twitter. This was the last song LB recorded as a trio (Phonte, Big Pooh, and 9th Wonder). Here’s the story behind “Star.”
This is what Lil Wayne will look like if he shaved his hair. Scary, isn’t it? But why would Weezy shave the dreads that he went through much discomfort to nurture over the years? He’s become synonymous with those dreads and it’s unthinkable that he would chop them off in a whim. But there’s a good reason to consider the possibility.
