Luda previews his collab with Nas and Jay-Z at a listening party for Theater of The Mind in Chicago. You can hear a good portion of the Nas verse.

    for some reason, I still cop albums, then transfer them to the ipod, never to be seen again…it just feels weird to be buying electronic data, rather than an actual, tangible product—it’s the same with books- I bought an i-book for one of my classes, this semester, and it just feels weird….

  55. CiCi The Intern Says:

    President-elect Obama’s advisers are quietly crafting a proposal to ship dozens, if not hundreds, of imprisoned terrorism suspects to the United States to face criminal trials, a plan that would make good on his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but could require creation of a controversial new system of justice.

    During his campaign, Obama described Guantanamo as a “sad chapter in American history” and has said generally that the U.S. legal system is equipped to handle the detainees. But he has offered few details on what he planned to do once the facility is closed.

    Under plans being put together in Obama’s camp, some detainees would be released and many others would be prosecuted in U.S. criminal courts.
