Show summary

Where did Kanye West get the horns for "All of the Lights?" Are they sampled? Synthesized? We're pretty sure they actually recorded them live!! Wow. Who does that?

Pumice recently saw this clip of "Music Made with Buttons 4.0" from Egadz. We play "Music Made with Buttons" in the background, pretty dope.

What the #@$%? A Wacka Flacka Flame and Gucci Mane reality TV show? As LJ Knight from "YeahSheSaidIt.com" put it, "both of these rappers can barely stay their asses out of jail long enough to have a successful rap career. Also, hearing them speak is like trying to decode an alien ignorant language."

Flava Flav opened his first fried chicken restaurant in Iowa. "Flav's Fried Chicken" is expected to be a chain of restaurants. Flav also plans to introduce "La Flav's Spirits," a line of flavored liquors. Meanwhile, Terminator X is happily raising African black ostriches (not alpacas) on his farm in Vance County, North Carolina.

Malice of the Clipse turned to God for some career advice. If he wanted to kill his career, he might as well have turned to Mase for guidance.

50 Cent continues his antics on Twitter, this time boosting the value of his stock in HNHI.

The squeal in "Jump Around" by House of Pain is most likely sampled from "Shoot Your Shot," by Junior Walker and the All Stars, not Prince's "Gett Off." It's a tough call, but considering the fact that Everlast and Divine Styler are both alumni of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate, is it merely a coincidence that the Junior Walker sample is also in "Ain't Sayin' Nothin'?"

Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park: Are they Hip-Hop? The jury is still out on this one.
