I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Joell Ortiz is a beast.

In the past few years New York’s been on a bit of a losing streak in terms of producing new talent with longevity (similar to their Basketball team – and trust me that hurts extra cause I’m a Knicks head), so it’s a blessing for not only the East but for hip-hop that Joell’s come through and styled his way into the ranks.  And while he’s shown that he can mash you down regardless of whether he’s solo or with his Slaughterhouse brethren it never hurts to get a little help from another NY legend.

I’ve been seeing a lot of hate round the web for this and I gotta say, I disagree in a massive way.   Aside from the fact that I’m a huge Mos Def fan, I’m even more of a fan of imagination and raising kids right.  A ton of you might see this as Dante tryin to pick up a cheque, which may be true, I can’t really speak for him.  But I know I can speak as an uncle to 3 baby girls and I know that Yo Gabba Gabba has gone out of their way to bring an eclectic group of incredible talent to the kids of today and hopefully inspire them to do something positive and creative.

Just like how Sesame Street and the Muppet Show were my first exposure to Buddy Rich and Paul Simon, Yo Gabba Gabba have exposed this new generation of kids to Biz Markie, Rahzel and Mos Def as opposed to the other nonsense they could be pimping out.

So quit hating and see the big picture.

More Mos in the mainstream.  Less Flo Rida.  That’s my word.

Kane is by far one of the most requested MC’s people always suggest, no demand, we cover. And we couldn’t be more thrilled that Kane blessed us with an interview.

We initially planned to talk to Kane about recording his classic 1988 debut, “Long Live The Kane” but it quickly dawned on me that we should make the most of our time with Kane, so instead of setting up a future interview to discuss his other classic album “It’s a Big Daddy Thing”, let’s just knock it all out at once.

Thankfully the most influential and finest rapper of all time was in for the trip down memory lane. Needless to say we couldn’t wait to hear Kane talk about creating some of the genre’s most defining songs. I know, neither can you, so I’ll skip the overview of Kane’s career and let him tell you in his own words. – Alex (via NWSO)

We posted something about this 6 months ago, and now finally, we actually have somethin to show you.
