Prodigy brings back their mouthpieces, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett finds himself in the middle of a hip-hop album, Fugazi gets sampled (with Ian’s permission of course), B-Real almost accidentally creates a another Cypress Hill album, and Karen O brings out her inner Sheena…
Prodigy, Invaders Must Die (left)
Keith Flint and MC Maxim Reality back on the mic.
Black Lips, 200 Million Thousand
Is this a reference to all the people in India they offended when they mooned the crowd and one of the Lips showed his wiener on national television?
Can’t resist the cameos from hip-hop vet Chubb Rock and Metallica’s Kirk Hammet (he’s playing guitar of course).
Chris Isaak, Mr. Lucky
Don’t you think Chris Isaak looks like Kurt Russell?
Lamb of God, Wrath
Can’t hear the word “wrath” without thinking of Samuel L. Jackson.
B-Real, Smoke N Mirrors
If B-Real had Sen Dog sing all hooks (which he actually does on one of the tracks) he could have called it a Cypress Hill album.
Kool Keith, Tashan Dorrsett
The instrumental version of the album released last year.
Camp Lo, Stone and Rob Caught On Tape
Years ago I went to a show just to see Camp Lo and they only performed for seven minutes. I’m still pissed about it.
MC Lars, This Gigantic Robot Kills
Ever wonder what Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” would sound like with rhymes over it? Wonder no more.
Jesse Rose, What Do You Do If You Don’t?
What do you do it you do? (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) Heads up for two tracks featuring Hot Chip.
War Child, Heroes, Vol. 1
An album to benefit children affected by war. I’m lovin’ the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Ramones cover.
