I’m just doing a quickie here ’cause I’m watching this fantastic movie on BBC America–The State Within. It all starts with a terrorist attack comitted against America by a British citizen, and focuses on the ensuing diplomatic drama. It’s moving, powerful, taut, and exciting. Y’all need to watch it! Plus, it’s got Sharon Gless, who’s as good here as she ever was on Cagney and Lacey. I’m lovin’ it.
Hell Razah-Back to the Renaissance (DJ Rated R). A mixtape by a rapper on an independent label, provided as a preview to his upcoming record.
Cartoon Network brought the beats with MF Doom and Dangermouse’s team up on The Mouse and the Mask, and offered a few free mixtapes by the pair. Now, they’re offering Chrome Children (follow link), with cuts by Percee P, Med, Aloe Blacc, and production by greats like Madlib and Four Tet. Definitely worth the price (which is $0, by the way).
