CRS… I think it’s some tour or album by Ciara, Rihanna & Shakira… [or] crack, rock, sells??


It’s been waaaaay too long since these three released a song together. I’m surprised there’s still a CRS folder in my music library.

CRS – Don’t Stop!

For the video, director So Me (Justice, Kid Cudi, MGMT) uses the song to soundtrack a hyperactive, ecstatic New York City travelogue. Shot over a week of long nights out with A-Trak and Armand (including live footage from the Fool’s Gold “Day Off” labor day block party), the clip is a pop-art adventure starring commandeered taxis and hotdog stands, sexy strangers, and a who’s-who of famous friends: rappers, producers, indie rockers, graffiti writers and nightlife icons all take turns adding their own special sauce to the song, turning “Barbra Streisand” into one of this year’s must-rewind clips.

New material from Afrikan Boy! Also check out his freestyle over Kanye’s Power.

If you ever find yourself wondering where certain samples came from or you’re curious as to who’s the original artist sampled in the latest [insert artist name] record mp3 playing on the radio, visit Just as the name implies, Who Sampled is an online database filled with thousands of entries giving you info on the original songs sampled in some of our favorite songs. Even just searching an artist/producers name will tell you the number of samples they’ve used in their work.

I’ve always wanted to know what was the original song Madlib sampled in his Quasimoto song Closer, so I put to the test.

Song: Quasimoto – Closer (feat. MF DOOM)

Original: Doris – You Never Come Closer

I also was interested in finding out the original song sampled by BINK! in Kanye’s recent Devil in a New Dress.

Song: Kanye West – Devil in a New Dress

Original: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – Will You Still Love Me (2:06 & 3:52)

Kanye West – Devil In A New Dress


A while back (actually I think my 1st or 2nd post when I started the blog) I posted, Jaydiohead genius, Max Tannone’s Mos Dub; a mashup Mos Def acapellas over dub reggae. This time around it’s the same formula as the last project, but just as the name implies, it’s Talib over dub reggae instead of Mos. I don’t listen to Talib Kweli on the regular, so I can’t remember the names to all of the original songs, but you’ll find features from Bun B, Common, Ghostface Killah, Mos Def, Kanye West and a few others.

I’m really late on this one. I’ve had it sitting in my iTunes for the past week or two without any plays. Мишка brings us a new mixtape from Chicago-based mashup duo The Hood Internet.  I first heard their Aesop Rock  x Tobacco mashup Dark Pink Goo a few years back and was convinced it was an official remix.
