Dave Chappelle x The Walking Dead.

Dave Chappelle returned to television after a considerable absence to host Saturday Night Live this weekend.  The comedian and once king of Comedy Central delivered a hefty batch of President Trump jokes and sketches but was asked leading up to the show whether or not he would bring any of his Chappelle’s Show characters to the show. He says he originally wasn’t planning on it but recently saw an episode of The Walking Dead which inspired him to bring them to NBC.  What ensued was maybe one of the greatest 5 minutes sketches of all time, done in true Chapelle Show fashion.  Check the method.

Wanna Play A Game Of Rhythm Roulette?

If you start making music for the Diplomats before you’re supposed to graduate from high school, you better pray that you’re consistently at the top of your game. That’s what araabMUZIK has been doing and then some. The Rhode Island producer has made a name for himself, in more than one way. His live MPC sets are dizzying and his imagination behind the boards is still expanding. He also miraculously survived a gunshot to the head in an attempted robbery in Harlem earlier in February. But he pushed through and released his album Dream World in July and produced Joe Budden’s last album Rage & The Machine.

As you can assume, it was only a matter of time before we got araab for Rhythm Roulette. We hit up Moodies Records in the Bronx and ended up with CDs from Blue Magic, Diana Ross & The Supremes, and The Dramatics (he’s not messing with vinyl). Then back at the studio with his AKAI MPC, araabMUZIK chops up samples and does what he does best. Layer after layer, he builds in his signature sound and producer drops for what could be the intro to the next Dipset album.
