Amazingly, the best thing on Pitchfork’s front page today isn’t the Cam’ron review blurb that declares Crime Pays as having a “lonely, defensive Kirk Van Houten vibe” (?!?) but this fairly extensive A-Trak edition of their “Guest List” feature, which you can read here. Check Trizzy talking about Proust, Mythbusters, weird Bill Wyman records and of course DUCK SAUCE.
This Friday on The FADER’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio, they had ATLien and Killer Mike associate Pill by to kick some rhymes, and whaddayaknow, one of the tracks he goes over just happens to be Trackademicks’ “Topsidin” instrumental from the “Enjoy What You Do / Topsidin” single (available here and everywhere else digital music is sold, vinyl on its way!) Sure, it’s a “freestyle” in the most literal sense, but as always it’s cool to hear other rappers on our stuff.
Elsewhere on the internet airwaves, you can listen to this extensive Trackademicks interview with Streets Is Talking Radio right here. “In the words of Mac Mall, this interview is full of ‘Nathan But Game,’” says Track. Grab it!
