First day of Lollapalooza done and we must say it was intense. In normal BBU fashion, our show started at 12:30pm and we didn’t get out the door till 11:30, running hella late on that “Rapper Shit.” Hopped the train down and turned the train car into our own personal pre party—power to the working class. Around 12:10, we arrived at the Perry Stage. So we only got to over hear B.O.B. doing a MGMT cover, dope work sir! We hit the stage at 12:30 to a sea of kids ready to party.

While at Sirius Radio’s Hip-Hop Nation, Lupe explained the formation of the All City Chess Club. The club consist of himself, The Cool Kids, J.

Lupe refrains from saying there is going to be an album put out by this group, but he does say that we can all look forward to a mega remix of “Beamin”. [NahRight]

The time has come. One of the most acclaimed hip-hop groups of the last decade, the North Carolina duo of Phonte and Big Pooh, better known as Little Brother, are set to release their fourth and final album. They’ve represented the essence of hip-hop with vivid lyrics and fantastic production, but they’ve also seen more than a fair share of ups and downs. Expectations are high for LeftBack and fans don’t want this to come to an end, but after this LB take off to focus on other endeavors.
This is an unreleased record that didn’t make the tracklisting for Nickelus F’s upcoming project Season Premiere, but Nick felt that it deserved it’s own shine. F says: “I first heard Elite on J. Cole’s Heartache and I was really impressed. When I was in NY I had the chance to meet up with dude and it really worked well. We’ve done a bunch of joints together, and hopefully a lot more to come. This is not a Twitter song. It’s about guiding the audience to something with more substance and meaning.” Be on the look out for Nickelus F’s new project Season Premiere coming out in May.
