Did these guys just jack Cool Kids entire steez?!?! Apparently this song is the official anthem for a new dance spreading on YouTube called The Jerk.

He does also say that he is disappointed in President Obama's characterization of the Bush administration though.

They're baacckkk!!! I had heard these kids had split up over delusions of having solo careers on the back of the success of their cult hit, "Vans" but common sense finally got the better of them and they've reformed for this track which astutely jacks the hook off the early 90's House/B'more club staple "Whores in this House" by Frank Ski. These guys were way ahead of their time first time around with their hipster rap fashion sense and Young L's club-rap production style. Is it too late for them to make a comeback?

Best hip hop album out right now: better than, Em, Busta, Jada, ANYTHING! Yeah, I said it! The lead single was aight but did not do this album justice - it was no indicator of how good Blackout! 2 really is.

Yes, that dude from MTV's 'The Hills.' Read the complete f-kcery at Complex's website here but here's a few choice quotes for those who can't be bothered to click through:
My first single, I just want to have me, Gucci Mane, and OJ Da Juiceman. It’ll be the flyest song in the game. I’m going to track them down, that’s my priority today.
Complex: You also said, “I’m like the white Jay-Z.” Would you consider Heidi the white Beyoncé?
Spencer Pratt: A little bit more than the white Beyoncé. Beyoncé had to be built by a group like Destiny’s Child, but Heidi shines solo. I’ll actually give you an exclusive: I could guarantee you Speidi’s [Spencer and Heidi's] “Bonnie & Clyde” version is going to stunt on Jay and B’s version.
"The bottom line is, if every single platinum song right now wasn’t auto-tuned, then I would be like, “I can’t be a rapper.” The fact that I could get up to perfect pitch just like Kanye West now, and T-Pain, it’s an even playing field. I don’t have to have talent. I just need to have auto-tune and be allowed to have the hottest track in the game, and my swag."
Scary thing is: he might be right on that last point!!! Hip Hop is over! Come back Asher Roth, all is forgiven! [spotted via Thisis50.com]

To celebrate the recent release of the new MSTRKRFT album, Fist of God, Cornerstone Promotions and Downtown Records has generously offered to give away two prize packs comprised of a limited edition poster and vinyl edition of the Fist of God album for the good readers here at The Kitchen.
In order to win, I'm gonna keep this ultra simple: send an email to email@example.com (subject line: MSTRKRFT Contest) and answer the question: What is the name of the hip hop duo rapper NORE, who is featured on the track "Bounce" from Fist of God, is a member of? The two winners will be selected at random from all correct entries when the contest ends at 11:59:59 EST tomorrow (Wed).

Then came the song by DJ Ocky:
"McNuggets" - DJ Ocky
And a bunch of 'viral' "McNuggets" videos like these:
So my question for anyone who's up on this McNuggets movement, what came first after the intial video: the DJ Ocky track or all these viral videos? I'd love to think a regional, underground Baltimore Club track inspired a viral craze a la Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat" without ever hitting the mainstream but somehow I think it was actually the original video that did it. Anyone?

I've featured this song before but this is the official video. Recommended if you f-ck with retro soul stuff like Amy Winehouse, Raphael Saadiq, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Duffy etc.

I hate to blog about blogging and the blogosphere, especially as it pertains to the clusterf-ck that is hip hop blogging, when its such old hat nowdays (and the heat is elsewhere) but you knew I had to make a comment on Vibe's list of what they think the Top 50 Hip Hop blogs are.
So of course, the internets is going nuts and with good reason. The list (see it here) is pretty badly conceived with some sites I've never heard, never mind read on the list and some sites way down the list that should have gotten more shine (I see you Dallas, Robbie and Sergdun & crew)
For the record, I'm cool with being #32: I've been doing this for a long while now and know a lot of big dogs who are currently way bigger than me started their sites based on reading me and some of the other pioneers of this space back in the early days of hip hop blogs in 2003/2004. However, I know my tastes oftentimes tend to run towards the eclectic and my pechant to go on occasional tears posting news & political stuff and you know, actually go to work and make a lving mean I'm never gonna be able to compete with the kids who can chill in their basement or dorm room all day trawling Eskay, messageboards, fileshare and torrent sites looking for new stuff to post 20x/day.
That being said, here's a list of 10 MAJOR hip hop blogs that absolutely should have been on this list too (in no particular order):
Thisis50.com - built the template for the artist-driven social network/blog (well ning did but you know what I mean). Thisis50.com saved 50's career by keeping him relevent on the internet.
Illroots.com - a real hip hop blog, written by someone who catually knoew what he's talking about.
KevinNottignham.com - same comment as for Illroots.com times 20!
Houston So Real - Matt Sonzala is a pioneer in this game. He's the authority on Texas hip hop and has been for years before the advent of his blog with his Damage Control Radio show. Granted it doesn't look like he's updated the site since the end of last year so maybe that's why he got omitted?
Woooha.com - pioneered the concepet of the hip hop marketing news blog. Unlike virtually every blog on Vibe's list, this guy does real journalism and actually breaks stories on his site.
Prohiphop - another excellent business-focused hip hop blog from guy who's been doing this for a while too (even if he was Bol's whipping boy for a time there!). To his credit, he built his own niche instead of jumping on Eskay's nuts like 90% of the blogs on Vibe's list.
RealTalkNY - speaking of which, Real Talk's Nigel D been acused of being a Nah Right clone in the past but he's been doing this for years too, has a huge audience and has actually developed his own lane over the years: not quite a straight-up hop site, he covers gossisp, R&B and sports too and shoots tons of his own original video content which is what separated him from the pack early on before everyone else started doing that too.
D-Nice.com - should have been Top 10, maybe top 5 based on his AMAZING True Hip Hop Stories online video series alone. This original member of the legendary BDP crew is a hip hop renaissance man: documentarian, photographer and DJ, he excels in all these fields and was the first relevent artist to start blogging. Derrick's a friend of mine and I'm happy to say I am partially responsible for inspiring him to start blogging after I told him the amazing journal-like emails he used to blast to his DJ gig list were worthy of being arhived and shared online too.
GrandGood.com - one of the most underrated blogs ever IMHO which is often overlooked for (or confused with?) Unkut.com. A great mix of old school and current true school, underground hip hop sh-t. Has impeccable taste for those who consider themselves 'real' hip hop heads.
Itsthe real.com - for pioneering hip hop sketch comedy on a consistent basis for the past few years. You can tell by their sketch writing (and their twitter posts) that these mensches they are true hip hop heads. Its nice to see the industry start to embrace them and show that hip hop is not all about street cred & ice grillin' but can actually have a sense of humor too!
(note: I left XXL's blogs for obvious reasons)
I just hope new artists, labels and promo/marketing companies don't take Vibe's list to be the be-all, end-all of blog sites they neeed to pay attention to 'cos there are so many people doing amazing stuff in this space that Vibe for some reason either just didn't know about or chose to ignore.
To wit: here's a list of unheralded blogs that I think deserved some shine this year or should be tracked over the next year by Vibe (hint, hint) for possble consideration on next year's list (if Vibe makes it that far, that is!):
- PleaseDontStare - truth be told, this is one of my go-to sites for links to jack.
- Traps n Trunks - the 2DopeBoyz of the South
- Rennaisance Soul Detroit - the Fake Shore Drive of Detroit with tons of Dilla-related content.
- CrateKings.com - long-running blog focused on all things related to hip hop production, diggin' and beatmaking. Should have been on the list this year, frankly.
- Gowhere Hip Hop
- Way More Fresher
- DJ Semtex - DJ, BBC radio personality, videographer and Def Jam UK AR man, this dude is tight with Kanye, is Dizzee Rascal's tour DJ and one of the leading bloggers supporting the UK hip hop movement.
