The Worlds FIRST Hip Hop Harmonica Player

Meet Bad News Brown. He labels himself the first hip-hop harmonica in his music video for a song called "Reign," off his debut Born 2 Sin. I'm not sure how this song makes him the world's first hip-hop harmonica player of if he's truly the first to merge both worlds, but it's a striking performance nonetheless. You should definitely watch it, if only to see him trying to look hard while playing the harmonica. Bad News - "Reign"

Clipse Announce Solo LPs for 2010

While it's not clear where or when exactly this show took place, Clipse played a set last Friday (April 30). And during that set, which included "Popular Demand (Popeyes)," Pusha T and Malice apparently announced that they intend on releasing solo albums this year. Unfortunately, those are the only details available surrounding this news right now, but here goes some ol' fashioned predictions:

  • As Meka at 2DopeBoyz wrote, perhaps this will be packaged like Outkast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.
  • These won't drop in 2010.
  • Pusha T and Malice will drop solo mixtapes and not proper albums.
That's all I got for now. Hopefully these will actually come out, though I highly doubt we'll see them this year. Also, here's hoping they continue to branch out production-wise as they did on Til the Casket Drops, which, though disappointing on all fronts, was marred by weak production from the Neptunes. Let's keep DJ Khalil and Sean C & LV on board, Pusha and Malice, but drop Chad and Pharrell. They deserve a break anyway.

Swagger Wagon

This looks like something straight out of SNL. But it’s not. It’s a real video made for the Toyota Sienna, which apparently, is now the unofficial swagger wagon.

Jay Electronica - The Ghost of Christopher Wallace

So, I took a listen to Jay Electronica's new track, The Ghost of Christopher Wallace and here are my thoughts.

First things first, the track is hot, Jay Electronica's word play is immaculate, but there was too much Diddy and not enough Jay . The track was produced by Diddy and was a good look on Jay Electronica's part because it was his first collaboration with him, not to mention, it was a "Nod to Biggie". I felt Diddy did quite a bit of over talking, but Jay Electronica has a passion for his music point blank. Given Diddy's record past of ruining careers back in the 90's, I don't think it's a good look. The track was six minutes long, Jay takes two minutes give or take to pay homage, to the deceased MC and Diddy spends the next four "trash talking". I literally had to figure out if there was going to be another verse or not. Overall, I give the track a thumbs up on Jay Electronica's part but as for the Diddy feature, I would have left well enough alone.

Interview with Lanino Brown

Tae had a chance to talk with New Orleans native, Lanino Brown. Here's what she had to say:
For those that are not familiar with you, tell us a little about yourself

The name's Lyiena aka Lanino Brown from New Orleans, the name comes from my big cousin. She said I was the girl version of Nino Brown from the movie "New Jack City" because of my hustling and out of the booth. I've been rapping since I was around 10 years old, but I didn't pursue it career wise until as of recently, because of failed attempts when I was a teen. I've previously worked with 6-Shot, Blaqnmild, Joker, Na'Tee, Extreme Entertainment, Fleur De Lis Ent. and Acelo at the Chapel Studios.

Where are you from and when did you start rapping?

I'm from New Orleans, downtown, mainly 7th ward, but I've also lived in the 6th ward and have strong affiliations there. Started rapping at 10, because my big brothers used to rap and I picked up on it and found I was actually better than them. Then it was on to school yard battles, beating the fellas, to the 9 o-clock props to almost signing a deal with Sony. Then I got out of high school and got a boyfriend and started school, and pushed rap to the back.

What makes Lanino stand out from other female artists that are out, especially now?

I think the thing that makes me stand out is my femininity. I can spit like the guys, but I still have a voice that the girls would listen to. There's nothing fake about me, just giving the people the real...the stuff that they can feel.

As a new artist, what do you feel that you can bring to the game as far as a female emcee is concerned?

I feel I can bring music that a female can relate to and vibe to at the same time. Now a days every rapper is all punchlines, no stories, nothing for people to actually relate to. I think I will bring that story telling back that made people "feel" the music that they listened to.
So, we saw your video at the Jay Z concert, do you think that influenced you in any way to start spitting in a more serious light?

The Jay-Z performance definitely played a part in me beginning to rap again. It was my second time performing with him and well like they say lightening don't strike in the same place twice. I kind of felt like I belonged there on the stage and I think I held it down nice if I say myself,(laughs) I felt like playing on the whole Jay-Z vibe would really help out a lot as far as to me actually getting somewhere in the music business. Like Hov once said, "He's the new marketing plan.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

In the next 5 years, really I see myself as a married, retired housewife (laughs) so the sooner I get a deal the better.

How can people get in touch with you?

For booking they can call 504-352-1232. They can follow me on twitter @laninobrown or and my YouTube page is

Thank you again for the interview, do you have any additional comments?

It was nice speaking with you and thanks so much for the opportunity to be featured on your blog. You're such a sweetheart. Be blessed.

Despite its workwear connotations, for some time Dickies has transcended its original use into a lifestyle-like setting. Throughout the years, the brand was a notable fashion inclusion in a handful of subcultures for its durability and quality. As a further testament to its increasingly diverse releases, a collection of New Era caps are seen here including both a 59FIFTY fitted duo and a flaptop-style WM-01.
