In part one of HHR‘s Blackout 2013 documentary, Chuck D shares his early opinion on Kanye West, Crooked I speaks on the possibility of a Slaughterhouse/Black Hippy collaboration, Joe Cool kicks a freestyle and more.
He premiered it last night at the GRAMMYs and has decided to release it on iTunes. Hear the Chuck D, Travis Barker, Tom Morello, and Z-Trip-assisted “Whaddup” from LL Cool J’s upcoming Authnetic album.
Although my posting might be wildly sporadic this week (due to the fact I’m currently enjoying the sun rays out in Miami), that doesn’t mean I can’t come through and hit y’all with a (2)Dope world premiere. Some of hip hop’s most prevalent emcees (especially when it comes to politics and world issues) join forces for the latest drop off Tech’s upcoming project, The Martyr, which will be available (for the free) sometime tomorrow.
Now this is kind of interesting. The mouth of P.E. – who’s also a gifted artist in his own right – teamed up with creative team SceneFour for his first venture into fine art for this limited run of piece inspired by the legislative events that have gone down in Arizona called “By The Time I Got To Arizona.” Limited to 300 pieces, this artwork is their visual representation of the effects of the controversial immigration legislation. You can check out TheArtOfChuckD for more information. Dopeness.
The former Parliament-Funkadelic member has a new album coming out on the 26th of April, titled Tha Funk Capital of the World and here is the first offering from that LP. Spotted at RR.
New single from Chuck D and company. This reminds me that I gotta pick up another copy of Fear Of a Black Planet, as mine is shot to shit.
Here’s a quick video of Chuck D being interviewed by Vlad Yulin speaking on Pun and the Latin impact on hip hop. Props to khal.
Here goes another track off dead prez & DJ Green Lantern’s upcoming album, Pulse of the People, which drops this Tuesday (June 23rd, support). And those in NY can catch them at the BK Hip Hop Festival tomorrow.
If you don’t know who Chuck D is, or what his contributions to hip hop have been… ignore this post now. Chuck D speaks with my man Jonathan Hay about Marshall Mathers.

Here’s some footage of the legendary Chuck D talking about the history of hip-hop and the difference between rap and hip hop. Props to Chris.
After 5 years of absence from Germany, Public Enemy hit the German concert stages last December. So we sat around with Chuck D and talked about the music industry, Public Enemys successors, his father-role and upcoming projects. And even Flavor Flav had a short cameo…
I’m not entirely sure but I’m guessing there are atleast a few Nelly fans that frequent 2DB. Regardless, he’s a good dude. I gotta post a few tracks off his upcoming album, Brass Knuckles (September 16th), just for the awesome time I had during his listening session festivities here in Vegas. That and I think it’s pretty dope he linked up with Chuck D for a record! Extra pause sauce on the image above.
