Ranging from David Axelrod to the Honeydrippers, from Busta Rhymes to Public Enemy, the article feels topical now that Matador is releasing hip hop again.

    man, what an incredible article. if more magazines created this blend of editorial and media online…. they’d probably be onto something.

    reminds me of how i had to read “check the technique”… scurrying between the book and the record collection.

    PA: have you read that?

    Don’t know the book, but just googled it and I clearly need it.

    P.S. the captcha words below are “snorting whitewashed.” no joke.
