    Prodigy from Mobb Deep is still in jail on gun charges– maybe almost-Matador alum Ill Bill can do it? He’s got a new (mostly awful, rap-metal) album to promote too.

  5. Patrick Says:

    Jake – the answer is yes.

  6. xYosefx Says:

    Matador should send copies of that Royal Swan 7″ out with the preorders of Chemistry of Common Life since they’re going to be late. Just saying…
