Some breaking news from the hip hop world:
Gang Starr’s lead voice, Guru, suffered a heart attack this weekend. The 43 year old is now in a coma.
Hip hop heads remember Guru for writing tracks like “Words I Manifest” and “Just To Get A Rep.” The Gang Starr duo included the equally legendary DJ Premier but the two parted ways back in 2004 due to creative differences.
Here’s some classic Gang Starr. Our prayers are with Guru!

Prince is back (does he ever really leave though?) with some new music. “Cause and Effect” debuted today on a Minnesota radio station. The song sounds a lot like vintage Prince… which means, it may be a lot to take in, so give it a spin, breathe, then listen again.

Anyway, you likey?
That picture is killing you softly though, right?
I don’t think you understand the sheer joy that filled my body when I opened up my innawebs and read this next one. I once had this feeling before, but there was chocolate involved. Anyway…
Maxwell and Jill Scott are going on a 20-city U.S. tour this Spring. It kicks off in Cleveland this May and will run through June.

And even more dates are expected to be added. Check Live Nation for dates and ticket info.
And yes, I will be seeing him…AGAIN. Don’t judge me.

Estelle’s new techno-friendly jam, “Freak,” is treadmill-worthy… or at the very least, it’s good for that hour you spend getting primped before you go out. The song is off her upcoming album, All of Me. Take a listen.
And here’s a little behind the scenes action from the video, which premieres later today.
Are you feeling the blackface?
