    Public Enemy Look Back at 20 Years of 'By the Time I Get to Arizona'

    The video for "By the Time I Get to Arizona" aired on MTV only one time in 1991. But its vision of violent retribution in the face of government callousness kicked over the coffee table of America's polite conversations about race. On November 6, 1990, the people of Arizona voted down a proposal to create a state holiday for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by a margin of 17,000 votes.

    Online Music Streaming: What's Best for You?

    Spotify finally launched in the States last week, making it the top contender to dominate the already crowded field of music-streaming services. But that doesn't mean the dozen or so prominent options - from Rhapsody to Grooveshark - have become instant dinosaurs. Most still have pros (and some cons) that would appeal to a specific type of music fan. Which one's best for you? SPIN breaks down the top services. SPOTIFY What It Is: An iTunes-like service for PC, Mac, or mobile that lets you stream more than 13 million songs (including every major label) and create and share playlists. Best Features: The sleek, user-friendly interface rules. And with the premium model, you can access your playlists and streams even when offline.

    Wiz Khalifa on Fan-Gifted Weed and Snoop Dogg

    Wiz Khalifa is riding high - and not just because he's been smoking for about nine years straight. His major-label debut, Rolling Papers, sold 197,000 copies in its first week, finishing at No. 2, just behind Britney Spears. He's in the homestretch of headlining the Campus Consciousness Tour (co-sponsored by SPIN), playing to sold-out crowds coast-to-coast, and he's also filming a stoner-buddy film with none other than Head Puffer In Charge, Snoop Dogg. It's been a rocket to the top for Wiz, who grew up traveling the world as a military brat before settling in Pittsburgh and pursuing a rap career on the mixtape circuit. SPIN caught up with the lanky tat-covered MC on a rare day off to see how he's adjusting to the high-profile life, what he does with all the weed people give him on tour, and his friendship with Snoop. Way to go on your opening week.
