Chris Rock on Real Time with Bill Maher

Posted in Comedy, Politics, Videos on September 27th, 2008 by Hyphen

Gotta love that ‘related videos’ feature on YouTube, right?  As long as we’re posting up recent Chris Rock videos, here’s his appearance on Bill Maher’s Real Time after last night’s debate.  He reuses a few of the jokes from Larry King, but there’s still some great new stuff in there.  Chris is always hilarious and on point as well.

Everyone’s asking where Sarah Palin is after this debate (answer: stowed safely away in Area 51), but I want to know where Dave Chappelle is.  I would love to hear his take on all this.

Questlove Interview on Sound Session (5 Part Video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session, Videos on June 8th, 2008 by Hyphen

Sound Session and ?uestlove

The Roots and Erykah Badu came to Seattle last Thursday to perform at Marymoor Park. While there, J. Moore and I had a chance to hop aboard the Roots’ (dope as hell) tour bus and talk to their drummer/ringleader, the legendary ?uestlove. We recorded the whole interview (shout to Caitlin on the Flip Cam) for y’all to check out. It’s 5 parts on YouTube, but the conversation was so dope and extensive, I didn’t want to just put up clips.

?uest spoke about all sorts of topics, including their new Rising Down project, the lost Roots album, volunteering for Barack Obama’s campaign, working on albums from Al Green and Marvin Gaye, why Black Thought is continually underrated, the rumor of a sequel to Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, and more!

Check out the first video here, and the rest after the jump.

Part 1 of 5

Also, if you can’t watch the videos and just want to peep the audio, you can do that right here (ZShare link available here). Warning: the audio only quality is a bit janky…the Flip Cam’s microphone + a running tour bus = an audiophile’s nightmare.  I suggest watching the videos if you can.
