Interestingly enough, some of the biggest news of the past week came in these past two days. Like that leaked Kanye West audio from after his run-in with Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Also, how about Jay Z dropping the hyphen? LOL. Seriously, though, how awesome is the guest lineup for Madlib and Freddie Gibbs’ full-length? And that lineup on Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris? Damn. Equally intriguing is the news of the Yancey Boys’ new album that will apparently feature a bunch of previously unreleased J Dilla beats. Nice.
Speaking of Dilla, that audio-documentary on his once-lost vinyl collection is a must-listen. Once that’s over, you should check out our thorough interview with Milo along with DDS’ comprehensive video chat with Danny Brown.
