Team Tyler.

Parents, hide your kids on May 10. That’s the day Tyler, the Creator drops Goblin, and the above manipulated photo is said to be the album cover. No indication as to the significance of William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, but I’m sure Tyler will be dropping knowledge in the near future. In the meantime, check the snippit that was let go of album cut “Tron Cat.”

In a pretty hilarious turn of events, Tyler has been doing some early advertising on the very blogs he bashes repeatedly in his lyrics, and the blog owners were completely oblivious. Tyler wins this round.

And on a final related note, Left Brain recently joined Ace during a studio session with his muse Pharrell and his partner Chad, and Tyler even got a little emo about the whole ordeal.

Apparently product was created, though no word yet as to where it will end up. OFWGKTA continue the meteoric rise. And to any of you fucks in Austin, I’m jealous. Peep the OF crew at a string of SXSW events over the next week.

Night of the Living Baseheads.

Where the fuck did this come from?

Though I’m still yet to come all the way around on Based God and his movement, this is a step in the right direction. B is actually rapping. What a novel idea for a rapper.

9th comes though in typical fashion on the beat (love the Flava Flav sample), Phonte and Jean Grae stay on their lyrical grind to please the traditional types, and Based God proves he’s got chops of his own when he chooses to take this rap shit seriously. Thank you, Based God. But you’re still not getting anywhere near my bitch.

Believe.

Up North Trip.

Albert Johnson found out the hard way: Crime don’t pay. Sickle Cell P is coming home after three years in the clink on gun charges (though he claims it was due to shots he took at the Illuminati on wax.) Let’s hope he and Havoc can make their way back into the studio soon.

Welcome home, P.

Deaded.

It appears as though Wale and Scotty have put their differences aside in the best interest of hip-hop. Reunited, and it feels good. Pause.

Here is what transpired over twitter over the past 48 hours. It appears both were the bigger man in this case. Again, pause.

Chips and Dip.


Cleveland mixtape master Chip tha Ripper has come through with yet another high-quality free release. Since first making noise on Hi-Tek’s Hi-Teknology 3 in 2007, Chip has been steady on the mixtape grind. Soon he will be in the studio putting together a project with newly-announced “supergroup” Pulled Over By The Cops. For Gift Raps, Chip recruits fellow posse member Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids for production duties, and the combination impresses.
