Video: The Cool Kids Interview w/ illRoots

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Mike Waxx from illRoots spoke to The Cool Kids earlier this month:

After the concert I chopped it up with Mikey and Chuck about working on Blakroc 2 in New York, the status of their album, the Tiger Woods scandal and more.

I didn’t know there was already a second BlakRoc album in the works.

Get the Merry Christmas FreEP if you haven’t gotten it yet.

Video: Treach – Uptown Anthem Pt. II

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

The good folks at illRoots and DJ Mixx recently launched a new remix series called The Sequels in which they commission new versions of classic material from the original artists. Sort of like what Smirnoff and Reebok have been doing, but without all of the corporate shilling. For the first installement, which I slept on, they had the Bush Babees (remember them?) revisit “Remember We”. For episode two, which dropped today, they linked with the legendary Treach for a rendition of Naughty by Nature’s classic “Uptown Anthem” from the Juice soundtrack. While I think it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see any artist outdo one of their classics, this is a pretty faithful interpretation of the original.
