50th Grammy Presentation = Horrible!

Yes. The music industry is in quite a shambles... The thing is the music industry needs to blame themselves for this. Sunday's televised presentation of the Grammy Awards ceremony was a great example of what i mean. Disjointed. Uneven. Too long.

Biggest Disappointment:
-- The Time Reunion with Rihanna

-- Kanye West / Daft Punk
-- Feist
-- Tina Turner / Beyonce

Erykah Badu has dropped a hot video!

Album Cover of the Month (February): Boogie Down Productions "By All Means Necessary"

Outspoken hip-hop artist KRS-One and his crew Boogie Down Productions chose to emulate a famous picture of slain civil rights activist, Malcolm X. (see below). A classic album and a classic cover!

Album Cover of the Month (January): Thelonious Monk

Yet another legendary jazz album that was both thought provoking and a sign of the times. Rumor has it that Q-Tip's forthcoming album will emulate this cover in a more modenized setting (you heard it here first!).
