I wish I had the time to fully explain the weirdness that was the Power 106 Cali Christmas concert. But I don’t. I’m working on a piece on the Ghostface and Wu albums for the LA Weekly and my brain is absolutely fried. However, I did write a 400-word piece for the Times that ran on Saturday. It probably isn’t enough room to truly vent about the abomination that is commercial hip-hop radio, but hey word limits are word limits. Half the review is about Lupe Fiasco, not because I think Lupe is spectacular, in fact I pretty much agree with everything Zilla wrote about him. But really, compared to the rest of those clowns, he was Rakim. The review also contains the revelation that T-Pain is really Levar Burton from “Star Trek” trying to do an impression of Roger Troutman. True story.
