Ok, I’m days late and dollars short on my weekly round-up of blog links. So technically this is more like “last week in blogging”.
Stretch Armstrong dug up demos from Nas, Artifacts and Organized Konfusion. Related item: check this old Oh Word review for more of the Simply II Positive aka Organized Konfusion demos (plus O.C. demos). We also had these Gravediggaz / Wu-Tang demos reviewed around the same time.
over at crooklyn classics, dru ha’s brother “no ha” details the kick-off of the sean price tour. excellent, entertaining post… i’d love to see more storytelling on hip-hop blogs.
More quality storytelling… Ninoy Brown talks about how Kool Moe Dee changed his life.
and That Good good talks about being at a legendary battle between Craig G and Supernatural plus shares a cool video about the battle.

vik reports on lots of exciting progress for black cartoon characters! real black people… not so much.

Dopetracks has launched. It’s some kind of collaborative hip-hop site for mc’s or producers looking for the perfect beat or rhyme to match. Let me know if any of you have tried it.
A very entertaining video of The Turtles detailing their history in the carnival ride of the music biz. Oh well, they probably got some of that money back when they sued De La Soul.
some new joints from last week (in case you missed them):
