Did you catch the best thing that happened this week, aka Method Man performing “Protect Ya Neck” with the Roots? Well, if not, change that now, and then continue playing catch up with us. Some of other great things to come our way include Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s tour announcement, Questlove talking about his NYU course, and this video of a producer hammering out a beat by a Madison, Wisc. lake.
Disclosure continued their awesomeness with the “White Noise” visuals and Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” hit No. 1 following a change in the Hot 100′s calculations. Crazy. You know what else is crazy: DJ Nu-Mark’s vinyl collection. It might not be nutty, but Frank Ocean’s news about his next album had us going a lil’ insane. The same goes for Ryan Hemsworth’s remix of “Open” by Rhye and the news that 2Pac’s entire catalog will be released. Speaking of posthumous albums, did you see our list?
