When Wu-Tang’s GZA Goes Record Shopping…


tumblr_m11isw5WBX1qfx3q3o1_540

The Wu Tang Clan legend stopped by Philly’s Profond Music N Art to snag some choice vinyl while in town for The FADER and Goose Island’s Analog Migration show.  In December, hip-hop legend GZA headlined The FADER and Goose Island’s Analog Migration show in Philadelphia. During GZA’s stay, he stopped by Philly’s Profond Music N Art to dig deep into the store’s soul, R&B, and classic hip-hop collection. Watching him sort through the vinyl of his youth (he says he hadn’t bought a record since 1976 before now), like Al Green, Bill Withers, and Smokey Robinson, while talking about Biggie and Nas and the golden age of hip-hop is a thrill. Check out the video above to see the choice LPs that GZA snagged, including a strange Wu Tang Clan versus The Beatles mashup record.

A Look Back At The History Of One Of Hip Hop Hottest Songs.


003FCB_Eminem_037It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in high school, and Eminem was all the rage.  His music was everywhere, he had a movie coming out, and every song he dropped seemed to be fire.  I remember hearing ‘Wangsta’ blaring from car speakers after school, and not realizing that 50 Cent (the same guy who made ‘How To Rob’, one of my favorite tracks ever) was in cahoots with Em.  However it does seem like a while ago since the last time I’ve heard one of their first collaborations, ‘Patiently Waiting’, until I start singing it, and I remember every single word.  There was just something about that changed many peoples minds about this dynamic duo, and Complex Magazine thinks so as well.  Below is a short “documentary” (Magnum Opus style) about the origins of this amazing song, and why the timing was so perfect.  Check the method.

Business magazine Forbes named Madonna the highest-paid musician in the world, estimating her earnings at $125 million in the year to June. Revenues from her MDNA concert tour plus sales of Madonna-related products and merchandise put the Material Girl, 55, well ahead of Lady Gaga at $80 million. The Mother Monster’s income would have been higher had a hip injury not forced her to abandon a global concert tour, Forbes said. Veteran rocker Bon Jovi placed third at $79 million, followed by country star Toby Keith ($25 million) and British band Coldplay ($64 million). Forbes based its list on pretax income from ticket sales, royalties, merchandising, endorsements and other ventures. It doesn’t take into account fees for agents, managers and lawyers.

Naya Rivera is ready for her time in the spotlight as she strikes a sexy pose on the flip cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The 26-year old actress’ rise began on the popular Fox series Glee, where she plays lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez. But with the musical drama filming its final season, Rivera is ready to move to the next phase of her career as a musician.

“It took a long time to figure out where I wanted to go musically,” she told Rolling Stone. With the kinks worked out, the newly engaged entertainer called on her fiance, rapper Big Sean, to jump on her first single Sorry Not Sorry this past summer. Rivera recalled that while her album is not completed, she was eager to push her label Columbia Records to release the single early. “Get on or get off. I think this is a summer song, and I want it on the radio by the end of the summer,” she told them.
