"I very recently had brilliant conversation with Michael Vincent Patrick of Designer Drugs about non-conformity in music and the ability to work from all angles, ability to have no rules, it inspired me very much to go back to my original sound!"
"This is the un-mixed, un-mastered, vocal-edited version. Final version with vocals will be released shortly, in the meantime enjoy the sound of DEATH..." - Le Messie/DBD

In order to promote his upcoming album, Recovery, Eminem did an interview with The New York Times. Besides a lot of things they asked him if he thinks that Rap has peaked creatively...here's his answer:
"No. Hip-Hop right now — there are certain artists who put hip-hop in a good state. There are a lot of talented people, and there’s a lot of young talent coming up, like B.o.B, Jay Electronica, Lupe Fiasco and Drake."

The Trilly & Truly S/S 2010 collection is titled, Basic Info, stemming from a desire to be as simple as possible; to express the basic ideas; to extract any unneeded complexity; an overall retreat to the basic. With 3 polos, 3 pants, and 3 tees, the collection is "basic" as labeled, but with elements that make each item stand apart on it own.

Ever saw one of those rare Lupe tees that you'd die for to have in your collection but you can't find it anywhere? Too bad most of us will probably never be able to get one of those, unless they decide to re-release them (which, in most cases won't happen) Check the "Top 5 Lupe Tees You'd Love to Have" after the jump!

A project?...kinda sounds like more than just one track (or a remix) to me...on the other side, Lupe made it pretty clear that there won't be an album..but hey, maybe a mixtape or something like that...we'll see..don't get your hopes up.

Oh shit! So check this...Denim hit me up a while ago telling me that she wants to go in over one of Lupe's beats and I told her she should definitely use "Failure."
So, I got the instrumental for her and sent it her way and just now she sent the track back to me. Her version is called "Arabian Nights" - Make sure to check it out! Her mixtape, which is called "Glass Ceilings," will drop this summer!
