I feel like this is becoming a once a week thing, and I'm trying to get stuff on here more often. Which is why these posts are stupid long. I can't promise I'll try, but I'll try to try.
I peruse all these articles, send em to myself to write about later, start a bunch of posts, but I can never get them finished in any sort of a timely fashion. Am I hear to break the latest in music news? Nah, I'd rather just get you the information when I can, and just hope you haven't heard it yet or I tell it in a way thats more fantastic than the other zillion blogs, tumblrs, pressers out there.
Well keep this short & sweet. Black Thought is doing his own thing now. He's got some new stuff with Danger Mouse coming out (via SKOA).
And in the above interview he did with the NY Post he said that he's got an EP titled 'The Talented Mr. Trotter' coming out on Def Jam (via Okayplayer).

Dilla's gives 2Pac a run for his money. Who's released more awesome music posthumously then this guy? ?uestlove tweeted this awesome article about how Dilla got so good over at the Guardian. Here is a trailer for the movie called 'Just Shining', which is all about the man himself with interviews with people close to him and live concert footage. This just came out last week (via 2dopeboyz):
