With Greece on the brink of economic collapse, many of its populous is turning to new ways of escape, mainly a new drug called Sisa. With the unemployment rate at 27% and rising, many people in Athens have become addicts through more inexpensive methods, like Sisa. Sisa is a cheap version of crystal meth, cut with ingredients that include battery acid (WTF?) and engine oil. The cost to get high? A whopping 1 euro.

It probably came as a surprise to most, but Kendrick Lamar’s message in his “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” video was not subtle at all (see: “Death To Molly”). In his sit down with Sway for MTV, Kendrick explains that this is one of the terms that needs to be put to rest because it’s corny and waters down to culture. He goes on to mention that some rappers out there might rap about molly, but don’t really live that lifestyle.
Some trends he approved of that rap spawned: jerseys and button ups.
If you peeped that Black Hippy “U.O.E.N.O.” remix, ScHoolboy Q had a little to say about molly in his verse.

Fat Joe’s been in the headlines all week, but not for music sadly as the BX native is currently facing up to a year in tax evasion. He pleaded guilty in December to charges stemming from over $700,000 worth of income for 2007 and 2008 and could face up two years in prison. While we all await the outcome for that verdict, Joe’s not letting any outside drama be the focus of his life, as he releases his a track with Future.
For “Long Time” he starts Memorial Day Weekend a bit early to clear his head with some new material that the ladies should have in rotation enjoying starting, now. Stay tuned for Joe’s next project, “The Darkside Vol. 3” coming at a later date.

We haven’t really sat down with the Daft Punk album like we should have but after giving the Japanese-only release “Horizon,” we might have to tonight. The way it starts, , very spacy and slow, gives you that Pink Floyd I Wish You Were Here album feel. By the time the drums hit, the tune gets a bit muffled and more vintage. It really sounds like an outro or the end of a movie that you float away to on a cloud.
Do remember, Random Access Memories is out worldwide now.
