       New K-Rino Interview by Jai Boo

Posts: 397


with friendly permission by the german hip-hop site

text and interview by Gordon Wuellner

the original of the germanophone interview can be read here:

Interview part 1

Next to your new album „Solitary Confinement“, which will be released on the 27thOctober,  another new CD of you hits the stores on the 21st September: “Speed Of Thought”, which is a collaboration with the UK Label Wolfpack. What makes the connection between Late and you so special?


We started to meat about 9 or 10 years ago, when they just had release done of their early albums. Always liked their music, always liked their production. They had some South Park sound. And Late was just a straight forward type of rapper, that spit a lot of knowledge in his lyrics. Me made the connection and never looked back.



Except for UK Rap, do you know about rap from other European countries?


A good friend of mine in Germany, a guy named Psycomatic. I was on his album “Im Angesicht des Bösens” and also I worked with one of the best producers in Germany in my opinion: Keyza Soze. He produced about probably 4 of my albums, including the new that I’m working on now. So, I always had a strong affiliation with German rappers or producers… and definitely German fans. Because Germany is one of the biggest international markets for the SPC.


You have released more than 16 albums and you are featured on many Underground records, but you always shine with new ideas in your songs. It never gets boring. Where you get all these ideas and inspirations from?


Well, I have to get a credit to god. All the inspiration comes from god. All thought and originality comes from god. So,when I’m just sitting around and come up with a new idea, I just give him the credit and give him thanks that he was able to let me walk into the thought,into the idea and then use a talent that he blessed me with. Manifested to bring it to life, just try to be the best I could be. And also we have to lookat what’s going on in the industry. Everyone tries to sounds like everybodyelse and that’s a motivational factor for me to try to go in a different direction. I don’t want to do what everybody else is doing. I try to speak on topics that nobody has ever touched before. And if I do touch something that has touched before, than I try to make sure that I do it in a different way.That’s my motivation.



You have a few songs like “Waste Man” or “Years Just Pass”, where you criticise somebody’s lifestyle. Do you want to awake people with songs like that by showing them their own reflection?


Yeah, you have to do it sometimes. It’s a thin line from you to the people you clean up. See, because the first thing you have to do when you do a song with that nature, is to look at yourself. You have to put the mirror in front of your own face. Because we all have short coming to the falls.

But also, there are different degrees of that type of songs. You have songs where you kind of patting people on the back, advise ‘em to to better. Then you have songs where you dealing with low down, low good people that you have to address in their fashion. Because lyrics that you hear on songs like “Waste Man” are a result of a hypo tactical situation, where we try to put a guy right for years. He past the point of tryna talk sweet to ‘em and talk nice to ‘em. Now we just got to let ‘em have it. And if he take it the wrong way, take it the wrong way.



Your vocabulary is gigantic and you play with words like a child plays with its toys. How would you describe your rapture and love for words?


I try to be different. I try to push my mind as far as it can go. And if I know that I push my mind as far as it can go then it’s automatically going to force the listener to push his mind, because he’s is going to have to research what I’m talking about, whatever for an topic it is. He is going to have to look up a particular word that I use. And in a industry where all the music is been gone down andeverybody is trying to rap more basic, I’m trying to make people think. I don’t wanna dumb you down, I wanna increase your intelligence.

If you’re not in a situation, where you wanna be educated and learn something, than my album is the wrong album.



Ok, but If I listen to a song like “BreakIt Down”, than I think that words are your hobby, that you love nothing more than complicated words.


Oh yeah, I mean It’s a part of a challenge. Especially when I write a song like “Break It Down”. I think of all the great rappers: Past, Present and Future. And I have to make sure that I lay down a standard that everybody else is going to live up to. Just like when Rakim wrote “FollowThe Leader”. Or when KRS One wrote “Poetry”, or when Canibus writes a greatsong… when they write a good song, it sets a standard. All the other rappers have to reach up to their standard now. So, It’s a competition. A friendly competition, because it’s like: “You know what? I am going to do something that hasn’t been done.” So if people hear it I want ‘em to say: “I wish I had the thought to do that!” So, but if they still will do it, they have to work hard to reach it on that level that I have it done.



Describe the process you had to go through to get your treasury of words. What did you do for that?


Years of reading and study. If you read something and you read a word that you’ve never seen before, you look it up, than you learn what the meaning of it is. So once I got into this rap game I analysed rappers like T La Rock, Kool Moe Dee or KRS One, the intelligent rappers who used big words. Especially T La Rock. It was a motivation for me.

So I couldn’t take credits for it like I invented it, but I do feel like I grabbed the whole of it and mastered it really good. But it’s jut a process of wanting to acquire more knowledge. You have to wanna learn. You have to wanna be able to t use more than just the basic words that your  language exists of.

And also I have to credit my parent, because I feel that I come from some pretty intelligent genetics.



Political and social criticisms are one of the many topics you talk about in your songs. If it’s in a funny way like in“President K” or in a serious way like in “Blood Doctrine”.

Are you even a little bit happier with the political situation of your country since the new president moved in the whitehouse?


It’s not much of a difference, man! The truth of the matter is, that we have several respect for Barack Obama, but the fact is, that he has an unfixable situation. Because previous regimes left so much damage, that is such a blow to the countries: Economy, the staff of steam, the unemployment, the war, the drugs. All these things been going on for years! And then one guy comes in and is expected to clean that up overnight. You can’t just drop a bomb on him.



So nothing will change if we vote for President K next time?


[Laughs] Ay, a few things will change if y’all votefor me, man! Because first: I’m going to break everything back down to it slowest compound and we going to start this thing all over. But Staff! They might not agree with my staff! Cats like Bil O’reily, a lot of these racist foxnew reporters, they wouldn’t be to happy with my staff.



[Laughs] Alright! As somebody who is in the game for more than 20 years, how do you see your own development as an artist from the C.O.D. album to now?


It’s a long way, man! I’m happy, because I feel like Ihave grown as an artist, grown as a person. I thing you have to grow as a person, before you grow as an artist. Because, you know, those life experience stranslate over to your music, so the development been good, it’s been good. No was far as it’s getting better in my craft as a writer: That’s a NEVER ending process. Feel like as long as you in it, you can get better. As long as you work on your skill and push to get better, you can always get better. But take me in 2009 compared to me in 1990, when we drop the first C.O.D. The 1990-K-Rino was a little bit meaner. I’m kind of made back know, I wish I kind of head that passion I had back when I was younger.



Let’s talk about your feature with Scarface on his last album “Emeritus”. Do you have the feeling that more people know you since you were featured on the song? Or has nothing changed?


I don’t feel a big change! If it would have happened 10 years ago, it would have been a bigger difference. You got an artist like ‘Face, who is one of the greatest of all time and a lot of people not really knowing that he put a new album out and his album was one of the greatest to come out. It’s a shame how messed up the industry is now. All of these wack rap, that we got going on out here now. So I know that back in the days, when the game was still real. If I then made the appearance on that album, then It would have big impact on me, my career and on my future projects… Instantly! Now, it’s like, you know the die-hard Face fans,they go out and get it and if people know me they’ll say “Ok, I heard K’ on that”… I got a lot of props! Don’t get me wrong, but for the people who don’t know me, they might just well say “Oh there is some new guy rapping with him and Slim Thug.”



But I mean, we really waited on that. You even had a song names “The Set Up” back in the days, where Scarface was involved in a story. I was like: “He even has a song with Scarface involved in a story, but they don’t even have a song together!” I was like: Damn!


[Laughs]Yeah, you know me and Face been cool for a long time. But sometimes it’s leaving; the music side of it is leaving. Because it’ll be two artist that never worked together and people will feel like “They must not know each other, must not be cool with each other”. It is a different situation, you know. The label issues or something like that. It’s some kind of things that might keep two artists working together, but all over all, behind the scene, we always been cool.

Interview part 2

Is it the same with the Screwed Up Click? Because I mean the SUCand SPC are the biggest rap groups in Texas, but except for Hawk, Z-Ro& Trae I never see you really working with them. For example: Not with Lil’ KeKe, ESG, Grace… why was that?




In certain situations it’s just the case that other guys just don’t knoweach other like that. You know we have neutral respect and we greeteach other when we see us, but we never really just were cool likethat. KeKe is in my opinion one of the top 5 artist that ever came outof Houston. We were justnever in a situation where we were close likethat, that we made a song together. And there are other guys that Idon’t even know. Mentioning Grace, I don’t even know Grace personally like that. I don’t even know if we met, if we did it may be once or twice. But ESG, and myself we go way back. ESG is a example like it was with Face, we go waaay back, back to the “Swanging and Banging” days. We always been cool, but we never actually did a song together. He is in one of my videos! I have a song called “On My Side” from the “TimeTraveler” album and ESG makes a cameo. It was cool for a lot of people to see me with cats, that they normally not would affiliate me with, wouldn’t connect with.




So the relationship between SUC and SPC wasn’t really different before DJ Screw died? Because I think he was a link between SPC and SUC. Am Iright?




I mean he was definitely a link,because I knew Screw before he started the SPC. And I had actually madehim honour to the SPC. So with that being said: By us being so tight,because we went to high school together. He would have introduced thepeople in his click to our music and intern he introduced us to theirmusic and indirectly to his work, putting out the tapes! You know FatPat went to high school with me, but I didn’t know that he was arapper. Fat Pat was a clown class type of dude. But through Screw I learned about Fat Pat, I learned about KeKe, about the whole Screwed UpClick. So he was definitely a link. 



But putting all these samples from Screw or Pat in songs, you’re not a fan of this, right?




People been sampling since the rap game began, when they just let the record play. Freak out play on a record and some guys just picked the mic up and started to rapping on the instrumental. So, I have no problem with that. It’s cool in proper channels, but I’m not a fan of that, because when I do a song with you, I wanna know that we actually worked together. I don’t want a verse from you, because you are in jail, or because somebody died and they gave you a verse. That’s for a few cool,but if I do a verse with Face, I wanna know: We sat in the lap and we put this together. Or we did it just the modern way and he sent me averse. But we definitely put that together, naturally. But a sample? Like a line or a hook or some? Not a fan, but I don’t see a problem with that.



In2008 you released 4 albums. What can you tell us about the feedback, the listeners gave you? Do you just heard positive feedback or were some people like “Mhmmm…. Please, less quantity more quality next time”?




I didn’t get any negativity for that. If there was some out there, thanit is what it is,but I got a lot of positivity, because really I got alot of gratefulness from the fans. They were just happy, that an artist will be willing to provide them with that much music in a 365 day period. Actually less than a year’s time. Because in this day and age,where you hear from rappers In might not 2 years. And then if they do drop every year, than are just like one or two songs good and the rest of the album is weak. …. You know, my goal is to always try to make sure that I give you a quality album in terms of content. It’s going to be like: Somebody’s inviting you to your house for dinner and they just won’t stop feeding you, but you had enough. The food is very good, but you had enough. But they say: “You know what? I’m going to rep’ some ofthis up and give it to you and you can take it with you and eat it later!”

This is what I did last year: I’m sending you off with a bunch of food that you can just eat when you want to eat.



I think your self-titled album“K-Rino” from 1998 was the hardest record you have ever done. It’s a bit different comparing to other of yourworks. Can we see you changing your style a bit in your future projects like you did it in the hard way on the LP“K-Rino”? Or can’t you see it happening?




The thing about that album is that that album didn’t even come out the way it’s supposed to come out. The label really took the creative control on that project. The lyrics spoke for themselves, because where I was standing, was still were Iwas standing, but you never saw me doing an album with just 10 tracks on it. And that album only had 10 songs. They might have been remixedto make it eleven. But they really just had 10 songs on that, because they left a lot of my songs. There were a lot of songs that never made it on that album. Those were great songs, that people would have liked a lot. Ah, and do you saw the covers? Some like a sun with my name going through it- I don’t know what that was! Because when they pissed me off and I told ‘em I wouldn’t do no more work for ‘em, I did not take the album picture. So they had to do the album cover in another form. That was their best thing to put together! A lot of people liked the album. It got my lyrics on that, my concepts on it. So you know, Igot some pride about the album. But I mean, I feel like I’ve done way better.

I had to send them the songs, because I was under a label. I had to summit the songs with ‘em. By them thinking that theywere some rap experts, they thought they could pick and chose what songthey going to use. Now, I never did my work like that, because always had my own label and had creative control of what I wanted to put out,so that was new to me. I didn’t do it like that. They left like 6 songs off my album. A lot of people felt like “That’s my favourite one”, but I would not even put it in my Top 5. May not even crack the top 10 to be honest with you.


And to say that it’s notin your top 5, is a good bridge to our next question: What is your favourite song o fall the songs you’ve recorded? And what is your own favourite album?




To say my favourite song would be impossible. I don’t think I have a favourite song. A couple of years ago somebody asked me my favourite album and I would always say “Fear No Evil” is my favourite album, because I think that album was more reflective of my range, my skills as a writer. I think that album expressed it more than any of ‘em. But since “Fear No Evil” I done“Book # 7”, “BloodDoctrine”, “Triple Darkness Vol. 1” and those albums kind of moved up in the ranking. “Book # 7” may been moving it out the way, so I would probably say “Fear No Evil” and “Book #7”, but it’s very hard.  And you know: Before I dropped “Book Nr. 7”, might thought that I had one black book. And I just revealed the secret on the cover of  “Book Nr. 7” and laid ‘em all out, so people knew how many I had: 7rhyme books full of lyrics.



But if it comes to the best song I got a nomination: What about “What If”? I really loved that song. Best from you I think.


“What If” is one of the best concepts that I came up with.. It was a topic alot of people might have interest on; it’s something that anybody can relate to. Cause we all have that in us. Thinking: “Man, I wish I could go back in time and change a situation. Because if I knew than, what I know now, I’d have done everything in a different way.” But this doesn’t mean, that it would came out for the better.Everything happens for a reason. Best concept!



If you ever stop rapping, what will you do with your Black Books?




[Laughs] Iprobably would buy a safe, would lock ‘em up real tight in it.

And I would pull ‘em out sometimes and just read in it, cuz I do that now any way. Read some of my older stuff. I have pretty much any rhyme Iever wrote in my life in them. Back in high school, middle school,everywhere I ever wrote. I saved ‘em, I can always go back and read all my writes. If it’s from ’84, or June of ’88. I like doing that, I like to know where my mind was back then.



What about selling it on eBay? [laughs]


If somebody wanted to buy my Black Book, it would cost ‘em!

It would not be cheap [laughs]. It’s nothing they can get for under 10.000 dollars. They will have to be come real strong, if they wanted  to purchase my life’s work.

You know somebody that will do this? Tell ‘em to get their bread up and we can talk.




What are your other future projects next to “Solitary Confinment”? TheC.O.D. album is coming out very soon, right? And I read something about a Z-Ro collaboration. Please bring a little bit light in the dark.




TheC.O.D. album will be out on November! It’s actually an album that meand Dope-E recorded in 2006, but because of certain circumstances i tnever came out, so I’m a go head and put it out by myself. The Z-Ro collaboration is something that we talk about a lot, but it goes back because of several situation.



Z-Ro is a busy man, right?


Yeah,he’s weeeeeight busier than me. He got a lot going on. We recorded songs in there, we got several songs that nobody has ever heard, but we wanted to sit down and come up with a masterpiece. We don’t wanna rush. We want to make sure that people feel like it was worth to wait when they hear this.



Do you think you’ll come to Germany or Austria in the future?


Man, I’m ready to come to Germany!I t’s a shame. It’s one of our biggest markets and nobody has reach us, to bring us over there, man. I been in Australia, just different places. It got to be somebody in Germany that wants to book this SPCshow or K-Rino show or whatever, we can work out. If they wanna see us, then I definitely wanna see them.

Make it happen, Gordon, make it happen! [laughs]



I would support it, for real.

Thank you for the interview, great answers. Really appreciate that.


I appreciate you, man. Let everybody know in Germany, I got much love.One day I’m a come up there, rip it up and we  have some fun there. In the meantime: Buy the album, don’t bootleg it! Join the 1.000 list, anybody who read this. Send me your E-Mail address to my, if you want to order the new album when it drops.And I got you covered. We looking for a thousand names, we almost there, but we need some more. And the website is back

ThugStar of the S.P.C.

brand-new Interview by Jai Boo for

So Thugstar tell us about this horror movie called ‘Swine' that you've just finished working on.


It's an independent movie about the bigger scale of the how swine could be, but the guy who put it together has turned the situation into a horror film. The part that I'm in isn't really a major part but the character that I play turned into a bigger role. It's a pretty good movie, it's like a plot but I don't really want to give too much away! It has a lot of twists and turns and when you see it you'll think ‘Wow!' I found out recently that it will be out by February 2010.


How did you get the part in the movie?


Well actually I already knew the guy who was working on the film basically I was just going to do the soundtrack for the movie. When I got there he offered me a part! I wasn't really the type who wanted to be an actor, but I read the part and liked it so I took on the character. (Laughs)


Do you actually have a talking part you're not just there in the background are you?


Yeah I talk in the movie and I also have a couple of fight scenes! It's pretty cool!


Is this your debut into the acting world ?


Yeah it's pretty much my first time of acting in a movie but I wasn't really trying to act. I tell people I'm not an actor but it comes natural and I actually enjoyed doing it. The fun thing about it was being around the whole cast and we got to like each other.


Who else is in the movie? Anyone who we may know? Or is it just mainly up and coming actors and actresses from the area?


There's a lot of local up and coming actors that have done some acting before. The other person who you know from the movie is SPC member Shan-no. The director actually gave Shan-no a big part in ‘Swine', she's in it from beginning to end. (Laughs)


Well that's a good look for Shan-no! So, Thugstar do you turn into a zombie in ‘Swine'?thugstar photo 2


No! I actually live in the movie! I have my little fight scenes and everything I don't let any Zombies stop me! (Laughs)


Now you've a little taste of being in a movie do you think it's something that you would like to move into?


As far as right now, maybe but I'm not too sure. If another movie came and there was a part available that I liked and the money was right then I'd probably do it. But that wasn't really my main goal to start acting.


Let's stay on the acting subject for a while. I've heard you've got a porno coming out!! Are you acting in that one too!? Tell us about that Thugstar.


(Laughs) Oh that one! Basically I had a birthday party and a couple of my old college frat brothers got together. It was one of the wildest parties that I ever threw! That's basically how that came about! The footage is from my party and I started shooting it on my camera so I'm not actually in it but I narrate it. It's pretty cool.


So everyone else is going wild and you're there filming it!


Yeah it's something that I've always wanted to do. The people that were in it where asking if I wanted to do another one! So we'll probably start another one in December. I haven't released it yet because I've had so much material that I wanted to get out.


Will you be following in DJ Yella's footsteps and be a porn director?


Hopefully if I get the chance! You know when you were younger and you had dreams of wanting to do this and that? When I put something on my mind I will do it. It actually gave me a chance to see how this business really operates. I've talked to a lot of people and producers in that industry and I just enjoyed putting it together and seeing what happens with it! (Laughs)


(Laughs) Would you ever star in a porno?


Would I ever star in one? Hmmmmmm.....I'm not sure....I've been tempted but not at this time right now but.....I'm tempted and really want to.....but I'm not sure. (Laughs)


As well as acting, filming and directing porn movies! You also rap as a solo artist and with your crew South Park Coalition (SPC) now you've linked up with SPC UK affiliates LATE and Tricksta to drop a mixtape called ‘Block 2 Block.' Can you tell us about that release?


Oh Block 2 Block! That came about by Tricksta hitting me up and asking me if I wanted to do a mixtape. I decided to do it because of the exposure and basically everybody over there is my favourite type of artist. Anything that exposes me more to different people and cultures and with your support behind it. All of you did a pretty good job on it I really like it.


You've also dropped your own mixtape in the US called ‘All in yo Face'. Can you tell us about that release?


The ‘All in Yo Face' mixtape came about when I was doing the porn movie. I put it together to fit the mood of where I was it was supposed to be a double release with the movie. My management team told me not to do it! (Laughs) They told me to separate the two, I do everything on my own but I have a team around that help me. I would have run wild with it! But the songs on the mixtape fit the expression of how I was feeling at that time. When I was younger I used to DJ in strip clubs and stuff like that and that's the era that I went back to with the types of songs they were playing. That's really how the mixtape project came about. I have another one that will probably be released next year.


Will the tracks from ‘All in Yo Face' be featured in the porn movie?


Yeah some of those songs will be featured in the porn movie as well as some of the songs that didn't actually make the mixtape. It turned out good because I networked with a lot of artists from the Ukraine and other different countries; their songs are actually featured more in the movie. It adds a pretty good twist to it as well.


Now you also launched a website called Glowbal Ent. Can you tell us more about that?

Glowbal Entertainment is basically the birth of my own independentlabel. I was sitting there going through names with my management teamand that's what we came up with. We just started putting the sitetogether, it's still in the process of getting done there's a few morethings I need to add to it. It will show my independence and thingsthat everybody will be able to keep updated with what I'm doing. I'vealways wanted to push my own label so that's the beginning stages ofwhat I'm doing. There are a couple of projects slated for release. Thefirst release is Shan-no's new album called ‘So Seductive' she has afew more songs to finish then we can get ready to do the mixing downprocess of the whole project. I've also got my ‘Speaker Music 2' albumto mix down; there are a lot of projects getting ready for release.

Will Shan-no's album be dropping this year or next?

We've spoke about and we're going to try and get it out aroundNovember. If I don't get a November date for it to be released then itwill be January.

If some one wants to book you or wants you to appear on a track what's the best way to get in contact with


The easiest way is to hit me up on and just let me know what they want to do and we can get it done.

Hip Hop 4 Haiti Bring Together Philly, Harlem And Houston With Events!

"Hip Hop 4 Haiti is doing a series of events today, January 30, in observance of National Hip Hop 4 Haiti Day, which will be recognized in 30 cities across the nation.

In Philadelphia at The Arts Garage there will be a live internet concert broadcasted in 40 different cities. The benefit show is slated to feature the legendary "Schooly D", Sandman, Black Deniro, Daddy-O, Housewife, Hedonis, James Cagnie, E. Ness and more.

A New York event at the National Black Theater in Harlem is scheduled to include Syles P, Naughty By Nature, Saigon and NYOIL. "Our goal is to raise spirits and funds of at least $10,000. We are urging the entire community to come together and open their hearts and wallets for those who need our help. And of course this is Hip Hop so we're going in with both feet! Beats, Rhymes, B-Boys, DJ's and plenty of Knowledge for Self,” said NYOIL in a statement to the media. He continued, "Hip Hop is a family; we don't always see eye to eye and we are always arguing, like most families; but don't mistake that familiarity as breeding contempt. Understand that we bicker, fuss and fight because we are family, and at our essence we have immense love for one another and what we are all a part of. Now Haiti is about to see what that love that power can do when focused and applied toward a singular goal."

Houston will also be recognizing Hip Hop 4 Haiti with an event at theBlack Cross Relief Initiative with performances by K-Rino, 144 Elite,Willie D, The Screwed Up Click, Real Thoughts, and more.

Gang Starr's Guru Goes Into Cardiac Arrest, In A Coma!



"One of Hip Hop's most influential emcees is presently in critical condition, several sources say. Guru, one half of pioneering '80s, '90s and '00s Brooklyn-based Hip Hop group Gang Starr suffered a heart attack this weekend, according to the emcee and producer's sister Tricia. says that the emcee, born Keith Elam is presently in a coma from complications of going into cardiac arrest. Guru is best known for penning hits such as "Words I Manifest," "Discipline" and "Just To Get A Rep." Between 1986 and 2004, Guru (an acronym Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal) founded Gang Starr, a duo with DJ Premier that also includes Gang Starr Foundation affiliates Big Shug, Group Home, Jeru Da Damaja and Smiley Da Ghetto Child.

Born and raised in the Boston area, Guru relocated to Brooklyn in the late '80s, where Gang Starr released its first singles with 45 King as producer. By 1988, the group evolved as a duo with Premier, and released their 1989 full-length debut No More Mr. Nice Guy on Wild Pitch Records. The duo would go on to release classic albums on Chrysalis/Virgin/EMI, such as 1994's Hard To Earn and 1998's Moment Of Truth. Gang Starr's last album, 2003's The Ownerz featured Jadakiss, Fat Joe and longtime affiliate Freddie Foxxx. The platinum group toured the world and released several greatest hits collections, most notably Full Clip: A Decade Of Gang Starr in 1999. The duo announced their split in 2004, reportedly due to creative and personal differences.

As a solo artist, Guru released four volumes of Jazzmatazz, Jazz-inspired recordings with legendary genre artists such as Donald Byrd and Roy Ayers. Guru has launched two labels in his career, Ill Kid Records and 7Grand, where he and production partner Solar worked alongside artists such as Talib Kweli, Damian Marley and Jean Grae.

HipHopDX extends prayerful thoughts to one of our staff's most-respected emcees, the Elam family, Solar, DJ Premier and fans. We will keep you updated.

UPDATE: Miss Info confirms these reports with sources close to Guru. The emcee is presently in a New York hospital, awaiting surgery. DJ Eclipse spoke with DJ Premier, who also confirmed this. Premier was going to address the matter on Eclipse's Sirius Hip Hop Nation show, but later changed his decision. has compiled Twitter reactions from notable artists including Jean Grae, Royce Da 5'9" and Jay Electronica.

DX will continue to report on this!"

Get Well Soon Keith!!! :(

Sosouth has been fine for me.  I ordered from them as recently as a few weeks ago and they delivered quickly with no problem.  Spoke with Randy over e-mail and he was quick to respond to all my questions.  What did you order?  If they were out of stock and then international shipping probably had to do with the delay for you.

Unhappily the sosouth myspace page was obviously not visited for a long time by a sosouth staff. I am surprised about it. :P

Houston rap veteran SCARFACE organises against music pirates at !

"I want to get everybody involved in this. The site is Music Rights Now. It's stopping muthaf*ckas from stealing our sh*t online.

If you put a song out that you want to be downloaded, then that's all fine and dandy. But if you put out a song that you need to recoup your money on--it's value in our music, so it should be sold. You can't walk into Wal-Mart and just walk out with a TV-- you can't just download a TV. It cost money to make that album, dude.”

don't know if I'm in time for the top 1,000 but I definitely BUY all K-Rino cd's.  always hear how I should just download, still old school, rather have the original disc and jewel case it come in.  add me to the list.
