Video: D-Lo "No Hoe Remix Feat. E-40, Beeda Weeda, and The Jacka"

Yeah, we know hyphy is dead and we're not exactly stoked on the song's message—for the record, we definitely DO give a fuck about hoes, erm... women—but damn if this new video for the remix of Oakland rapper D-Lo's street anthem "No Hoe," featuring jaw-dropping guest turns from E-40, Beeda Weeda, and The Jacka, doesn't make us want to pull out our white tees, start turfing, ride the yellow bus, and yell "BAY AREA" like it's 2006 all over again.

Planet Mu Keeps It Diverse With Two New Releases

Planet Mu has always carried a roster of tuneful yet disparate sounds, but the London label's two newest releases show this curatorial ethos going to the next level. First up is the latest effort from Kuedo, better known as Jamie from (sadly defunct) dubstep heroes Vex'd. Continuing in the same vein as his former collaboration, the Starfox EP features four tracks of complex yet dancefloor-friendly beats. In contrast, the label's next release comes from The Internal Tulips, a California-based project (so shady they don't even have a MySpace!) revolving around a healthy obsession with the Kranky Records catalog, with a bit of Akron/Family thrown in for good measure. The group prominently features Brad Laner, formerly of seminal alternative band Medicine. Tracklistings after the jump! Read more »
