Hip-Hop pops a 'Woodie'

The C to the O and Dante Beze have been nominated for mtvU's 'Woodie' award. Their version of the VMA's.

If you are not hip to mtvU (it's only broadcast on certain college campuses) peep their broadband site Uber. My man Yomi over there has been trying to make it happen and has done an excellent job incorporating some excellent Hip-Hop programming over there.

Plus they support our events, so they get extra love.

Here is the skinny (SCR bullet time)

Big Sty made noise a couple of years ago with a song called ‘It’s a Problem’ here he took swipes at everyone from Ja Rule to Suge Knight…This time we get a softer side of this ATL rapper as he takes major swipes at George Bush in a song called ‘Cry 4 Us’ .. Drop Sty's peep a line with your feedbackdantanalv@yahoo.com


Jahi 'New Orleans'

K-Otix-George Bush Doesn't care About Black People


Radio version


This song comes courtesy of Houston based rap group K-oTix..This is a cool remix of Kanye West’s hit song Gold Digger.. Big shout out to them for this hook up. It’s already big news in the Lone Star state... Drop them aline and let 'em know what you think.... mic@k-otix.com

Mos Def 'New Orleans Dollar Day (Katrina Klap)


Mos Def comes with a wicked remake of the Juvenile’s hit song Nolia Clap… Mos gives this song some much needed political substance and even takes some shots at Bono and U2 for being absent when the ghetto really needs their Live 8 help…
