Your Boy Is Back In Town...
So cue the Thin Lizzy! Topics for ya.
+ New Bay Buzz
More New Bay buzz, this time courtesy Marian Liu.
Still wondering what all the fuss is about? Check out this mixtape by DJ Hyphy, it's kind of a "New Bay 101" type thang.
Some music tips: the new Zion I album "True & Livin'" is phenomenal. Out April 19.
My boy LB's Same Shit, Different Day is also in heavy heavy rotates. Out April 26.
Check out New Bay MC/westcoast mixtape king Balance's website. He ain't makin all that noise in the press for nothing. Mad Mp3s and stuff there.
All this is, of course, all a lead-in to tomorrow night's event at the Commonwealth Club. A last minute note: Chief Xcel has been sidelined due to mad time restrictions as Blackalicious finishes their latest masterpiece. In his place, Balance and Quannum's Lydia Popovich will be on the panel. If you're in the Bay, definitely fall through.
+ RIP Harold Cruse
Harold Cruse has passed. His The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual will endure as a classic because of the profound critical eye Cruse brought to both aesthetics and politics in calling for self-determination and independence. If you need a primer, start with W. Jelani Cobb's The Essential Harold Cruse. The breadth of his work is awe-inducing.
+ I Love LA
Much love to ex-Bay head Tommy Tompkins, B+, Luke and Eric, and to everyone at Tia Chucha's, Eso Won, Imix, and KPFK. It was beautiful, sniff! All LA heads--Stinkzone where you at?--thank you and check this event with 2Mex & LMNO this coming weekend!
+ What Happened To The Tour Stuff?
Sorry. It's coming. For real.
