With the final segment in Combat Jack and friends' inaugural episode released yesterday, I think we can safely assume that Complex's The Combat Jack Show has grasped the attention of a number of Hip-Hop heads.See more...

Black Thought should probably provide the people with a freestyle for every boring awards ceremony or any other snooze-worthy event to take place because not only was his freestyle about the Oscars pretty on-point, but it was also kind of helpful.See more...

BlackThought on something like "Rage Is Back" is the type of shit I don't even need to hear to know it's dope. Sure enough, the Roots frontman First 48ed this sh*t. See more...

I get it Kweli, it must be frustrating for people to want you to make your old shit, but....sorry, I want you to make your old shit. Your old shit was a classic. Which is why "Art Imitates Life" instantly became one of my favorite tracks of the week.See more...

As I just got done explaining over on the mothership, ¡MAYDAY!'s new "Take Me To Your Leader" is really good, like really fucking good. And because the Miami crew apparently doesn't sleep, they quickly followed the album release with one of the doper actual remixes you're going to hear. Listen and download...See more...

Questlove discovered that both his maternal and paternal lineage trace back to Sierra Leone while Black Thought discovered that his maternal side is also from the West African country.

Believe me, I like making fun of Ray J as much as the next man, maybe more, but in the end I do this because I love music, and I especially love music that means something. That's why I've been playing the hell out of Nneka's "God Knows Why", featuring a blistering guest verse from Roots frontman Black Thought. God this makes me want to throw a Molotov cocktail at the precinct. Listen and download...See more...

I don't even really know what else to say. Everything I've heard from Thurz, formerly of U-N-I, and his upcoming "L.A. Riot" album has been doper than a package of raw Malaysian white tiger. (It's actually too much dopeness to list, click here if you need to catch the fuck up.) And it sounds like he might have just saved the best for last. "Riot" featuring Black Thought. Boom. Listen.
