Black Saturday

It is the mid 80's. You are a superfan of old fashioned southern style wrasslin. You are a loyal viewer of NWA World Champtionship Wrestling on TBS Superstation to the point where you curse the Braves for interrupting your treasured NWA stars on the mat. You HATE WWF, with all its glitter and glamour and Hollywood aspirations. That hatred is personified in Vince McMahon Jr., a smarmy troll of a man who is pushing his WWF promotion ever eastward, westward, and worldwide. Imagine your horror when you turn on your television and tune to TBS on Saturday, July 14th and see this. [more inside]

Straight out of Surrey

There's really no need for all that swearing, Mr Ice Cube. While Adam Buxton has already revised one of NWA's finest in Help The Police, it has been soundly trumped by Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, who is about to deliver the extent of his street cricket knowledge.

You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge

From reviled to revered. A lot has changed since N.W.A. formed twenty years ago this month. They brought gangster chic Straight Out of Compton (NSFW Youtube) and said Fuck the Police in 1989. Then came squabbling and diss tracks. Founder Eazy E died of AIDS a decade ago. Ice Cube still raps and makes movies. Dr. Dre went on to discover folks like Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and The Game and still produces. Both are superstars. Some other former members, um, aren't (NSFW audio). Want to learn more? Their manager Jerry Heller just wrote a book. [MI]

Get Off Your Dead Ass and Sample!

Three Notes and Runnin' has decided to protest the recent court decision that cited N.W.A. with illegally sampling a snippet of Funkadelic's Get Off Your Ass and Jam that had been modified to the point of unrecognizability. So in the tradition of online civil disobedience such as Grey Tuesday, Downhill Battle has issued a challenge to sample-based artists to create 30-second remixes that consist of nothing but the disputed 1.5-second Funkadelic sample.

Hee hee...The Boondocks, the most consistently enjoyable of all the daily comicstrips around, deftly compares the NRA to NWA. It's one of those "wish I'd 'a thunk it" moments.
