I’ve been working on this Mixtape for a minute now. It’s Jay-Z’s “American Gangster” mashed up with some samples from Joanna Newsom’s “Milk Eyed Mender”. Appropriately, it’s called “Milk Eyed Gangster”. Some people were wondering what it sounds like so here’s a little sample. It’ll be done when I have some time and I’ll put it all up for download.

Kool Herc Sues Jay-z Over Slavery Reparations

This is a bizarre situation. writes:

Kool Herc is suing Jay-Z, developer Bruce Ratner and Barclay’s Bank for a cool 5 bil over slavery reparations.

Mr. Ratner, Jay-Z, and Barclay’s are all linked through the $4 billion Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn, for which Mr. Ratner plans to build a Frank Gehry-designed basketball arena for the Nets and more than 6,000 apartments. Jay-Z, a partial owner of the Nets, has been a major supporter of the project, appearing at press conferences to tout its merits. Barclays owns the naming rights to the arena, and has been accused of having links with the slave trade—an accusation the bank denies.

In the claim, Mr. Campbell said that Mr. Ratner and Jay-Z worked “in concert” with Barclays, and “profited from the African Slave Trade and continue to profit from these gains, through a conspiracy dating back hundreds of years and continue to date to oppress Black people, enslave them, unlawfully deport them to all corners of the Earth.”

American Gangster Acapellas Drop

An acapella version of Jay-Z’s “American Gangster” drops today on Def Jam. Follows in the same light as 2003’s Black Album whose remixes brought cats (and mouse) to super stardom.

As many are calling “Gangster” the next Black Album, the remixes should be just as hot.

Get on it.
