    Proto-Punks Death Honor Fallen Brother in New Music Video

    Once-obscure '70s proto-punk trio Death have finally begun getting the attention they deserve. Detroit's Hackney brothers — Bobby, David, and Dannis — belatedly found their audience via reunion shows, Bobby's sons carrying the family legacy forth with the band Rough Francis, an excellent documentary called A Band Called Death, and of course the Drag City album Death III, which pulled a solid collection of songs previously unheard from the group's past.One of the tracks on that recent release is "We're Going to Make It," and as Stereogum reports, it's the last song David wrote before he was lost to lung cancer in 2000. Above you can watch a brand new video for that song, which sets family photos and footage from A Band Called Death to the sentimental song.

  • J Dilla MPC Smithsonian Museum NMAAHC Sampler Moog

    J Dilla's Sampler and Synthesizer Are Going to the Smithsonian

    It should go without saying that J Dilla's effect on modern music was profound. The late, great beatmaker (De La Soul, Donuts, the Roots) has of late been extolled by the likes of Kanye West and Questlove, and is getting a mega-deluxe box set release set to arrive in the shape of a sampler no less. Fittingly, we now learn that James Yancey's MPC and custom Moog synthesizer will be installed in a forthcoming branch of the Smithsonian Museum.The pair can be seen above along with Jay Day's loving mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey. The Minimoog Voyager was made for the artist by the good Dr. Robert Moog himself. Both will find a new home at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, along with other "significant artifacts" once construction is complete — the Washington, D.C.

  • Juicy J ASAP Rocky Scholarship Video Ester Dean Twerk'n 4 Birk'n

    Juicy J, A$AP Rocky, and Ester Dean Offer Double Dose of Twerk

    Juicy J fans rejoice. Today brings a double dose of the Memphis MC — that's twice the J, and twice the excuses to pop bandz. First up, with help from A$AP Rocky, you'll find the video (above) resulting from last year's twerking "Scholarship," in which the SPIN interview subject stirred up controversy by giving aways the $50,000 prize for non-twerking reasons. The clip celebrating 2013's Stay Trippy is pretty standard fare: a number of college-aged women twerk in a garage before J and A$AP hit the strip club for some more of the same. Next up in the shaking-it-for-cash category is a new Ester Dean lyric video for the Juicy-featuring track "Twerk'n 4 Birk'n," via 2DopeBoyz.

  • James Brown Biopic Get On Up Trailer Mick Jagger

    James Brown Biopic Spawns Trailer, Mick Jagger Interview

    Today we get the first real taste of the upcoming Universal Pictures James Brown biopic, Get on Up, in the form of a full trailer. The film is directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and stars 42's Chadwick Boseman as the Godfather of Soul. It will span Brown's life, from his South Carolina childhood to his riot-averting concert in that followed Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, and beyond — into his later, more eccentric and troubled years.The film, which will be released September 26, has promised a "fearless" look at the star's life in its promotional materials. That should include, as NME points out, an alleged addiction to angel dust mixed with cocaine in his Kool's cigarettes. Castmembers and producer Mick Jagger joined Today in a segment this morning to discuss the film and Mr.

  • 'Weird Al' Latest Video Parody Offers a 'Sports Song' for Any Occasion

    'Weird Al' Latest Video Parody Offers a 'Sports Song' for Any Occasion

    The fifth days of "Weird Al" Yankovic's #8Songs8Days music video-palooz, brings us a halftime show of sorts with "Sports Song" — a parody on sports themselves rather than pop song we all know and love (to hate). In the Funny or Die clip above, our host leads a marching band across the field, mocking fight songs everywhere by over-explaining in explicit generic detail just how "vastly inferior" your sports team is. Which sport, you ask? That doesn't matter. Yankovic's guys are gonna take home the [penant/cup/ring] regardless.Over the past four days, Al's Mandatory Fun promotional campaign has brought us video parodies of Pharrell's "Happy" ("Tacky"), Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" ("Word Crimes"), Lorde's "Royals ("Foil"), and yesterday's "Handy" take on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy". And he was also on Conan last night, looking good with a live "Tacky" performance.

  • Aaliyah Lifetime Biopic Nickelodeon Actress Now Star Alexandra Shipp

    Aaliyah Biopic Replaces Disney Actress With Nickelodeon Actress

    With a bit of the old "take that," Lifetime has announced the new star actress for its made-for-TV biopic, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. After raising hackles by casting a young Disney acolyte in the role of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, they've replaced her with someone from Nickelodeon.Up until late-June, the cable movie was set to feature 17-year-old Zendaya Coleman, but she bailed following controversy that included the late "Are You That Somebody" singer's family threatening to sue the production.

  • Golfers Rory McIlroy Bubba Watson Don't Know George Harrison Lucas

    This Pro Golfer Thinks George Lucas Was a Beatle

    It's hard to imagine that someone might not know the names of all the Beatles, right? But maybe when you've been training to become a world-class athlete since you were in diapers, you wound up missing out on some of life's more important developmental stages, like getting stoned and listening to your parents' vinyl collection, for instance. We're probably being generous.It's with a great sigh that we present to you this ESPN segment we'll call "Golfers Trying to Name the Beatles." Watch it above and see current Open Championship-leader Rory McIlroy, of Ireland, make pretty big goof of himself when he can't remember George Harrison's name and squeaks out "George Lucas" instead. (That competition is at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, near where the Fab Four grew up, hence the questioning.)As if it needed clarification here, Harrison = Beatle, solo musician, Traveling Wilbury.

  • SZA Willow Smith Unreleased Duet Domino Brooklyn Video

    Watch SZA and Willow Smith Duet on 'Domino'

    Neo-soulstress and Best New Artist alum SZA surprised fans at the Rough Trade NYC shop in Brooklyn Wednesday night by inviting Willow Smith onstage to perform their unreleased duet, "Domino." The track's a swaying, etherial piece heavy in the groove, coming to us via Vibe, that elaborates on the Top Dog Entertainment singer's Z EP released earlier this year. After the song, the two exchanged giddy praise and SZA hinted at some new material coming from Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's formerly hair-whipping kin. "She's cooking some of the craziest shit I've ever heard. I mean it," she said of Willow. "She's perfect. She's so perfect."
