Here is a link to Geo of Blue Scholars joins KRS-ONE, Buckshot and Talib Kweli on the official remix for “OH REALLY,” produced by Marco Polo, off KRS-ONE & BUCKSHOT’s Survival Skills album:/a>

The only regularly great part of the Jimmy Fallon show is the fact that The Roots are the house band. Thank goodness DJ Heat put a compilation together of performances of The Roots and guests on The Jimmy Fallen show.

The list for XXL’s list of 10 Freshmen for 2010 looks pretty weak.

RapRadar.com L:aunches

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Elliot Wilson of XXL fame has launched his new website RapRadar.com. The site seems to be in early launch because many of the sections on the site are content free; Elliot seems to his placed in getting his site up live after his promotional hype around the hip-hop blogs. The site is still lacking other things like an About Page and an RSS feed.

Elliot Wilson has called RapRadar.com a Huffington Post like destination for the hip-hop blogosphere. GlobalGrind.com had the same idea but has failed to take off as promoters had hoped.

Will rapradar.com be successful? Maybe. It does have some good content like an interview with Q-Tip and T.I. but do I really want to read about what Pam from Martin thought about Biggie.
