Cop Today: 50 Cent, John Mayer, Felt, Rakim & More

50 Cent – Before I Self Destruct (CD & DVD)

Morning all, We’ve got some quality discs dropping today. I’m especially diggin’ the new John Mayer Battle Studies and Fiddy’s Before I Self Destruct but I was surprisingly disappointed by Rakim Allah’s The Seventh Seal. I need another run-through to finalize my opinion on each, though.

The new Felt record is impressive but I’d rather hear Murs & Slug over Ant’s production than Aesop Rock’s, something just doesn’t fit. The duo sounds more natural over Ant’s backdrops but their third effort A Tribute To Rosie Perez isn’t bad at all.

R.I.P. ODB

Wu-Tang (still) is for the children

R.I.P. Russell Jones a.k.a. Ol’ Dirty Bastard a.k.a. Dirt McGirt a.k.a. Big Baby Jesus a.k.a. Ason Jones a.k.a. Osiris the Father a.k.a. Joe Bananas a.k.a. Drunken Master Styles a.k.a. Ill Irving the Murderer.. Whew.

He died 5 years ago today. Wow, time flies. I saw Wu perform the February after ODB passed. It was an emotional night in Manhattan, I’ll never forget how it looked with everyone putting their lighters in the air for the fallen soldier. Moving, indeed.

For more, head over to Kevin Nottingham as they kick off their ODB tribute weekend today. Peep one of my favorite Dirt Dog videos “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” uncut as I’m sure it’s one of yours too. Enjoy!
