Remixes shit with a more relative tone.. IT’S DOPE AS HELL!!!!!We hear you though Mos.. ” We will not get caught up in the throne”  not that we don’t fool with Ye and Jay.. but damn.. that shit is not relative with what most of us are REALLY going through..

Join Bamboobanga420 in wishing .. Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi  A STRONG HAPPY BIRTHDAY..  let’s also continue to pray that he kicks cancer in the ass!!

this is a dope piece put together to Behind the Wall of Sleep…. Bill Ward’s drum solo is ghetto as hell on this lol.. it’s dope and raw.. when they were youngstaz.. anyhoo enjoy this .. and HAPPY BDAY MR. IOMMI we plan on keeping you here for a long time.. Now here is ..

The Original “War Pigs”..  same music.. different lyrics = WalPurgis…

ya know things like “eating Dead Rats innards”.. THERE IS THE DIFFERENCE LOL..

FELA KUTI.. Catch it when it’s in your city….

Me and Sis recently caught “Fela” when it was home in LA at The Ahmanson.. We went not once but twice.. it is a truly inspiring and emotional journey through the Nigerian musician’s difficult , soulful and rebellious life. FELA, directed by Tony Award Winner and choreographer,  Bill T. Jones,  tells the riveting story of Fela Kuti,  “King of Afro Beat” from his early beginnings and influences to his mother’s untimely death at the hands of Nigerian police.

 We laughed , cried, were jubilant and impassioned.  This piece is awesome catch it when it’s in your town.  Don’t just go see it because of Will and Jada or Jay-z (producers of the show) get into the man and his music.. His music is funky and should have been played in  your households growing up . It mos def was represented in The Banger Sisters lives..  

Sis said that when she dies bring her back as a KUTI QUEEN so she can devastate masses with her leg straps and booty rotations lol..Beejay is crazy ya’ll .. Anyway enjoy ..Fela’s Tour . Look next time your ass is at The King of Diamonds..tip the dancer heavily hell , it’s part of our ancestry..These sistas be gettin it. I wonder if they were tipped with Cowry shells. I believe all of these sistas were wives of Fela Kuti himself.  SCANDAL lol.. anyway we love them and we love him.  Roll up some E’BO AND GET INTO IT !!!!

Schedule after the jump along with some other kuts.. YEAH YEAH!!!!! Continue reading
