This Prodigy tribute is brought to you by UpNorthTrips. Listen to the mix above created by myself and Vinylcologist from 2011—featuring 10 classic Prodigy and Alchemist collaborations which are among my favorite rap songs ever—while you peep the Pee pics below compiled over the years by my bro Ev Boogie…

RIP Prodigy. Hands down one of my favorite rappers of all-time, an artist I’ve spent a huge percentage of my life listening to. Pee and Mobb have always been my go-to in the whip, and will continue to be.
“Gangsters don’t die, they just turn to legends…”

Here’s footage of Conway & Westside Gunn performing a new Alchemist-produced banger during their Griselda On Steroids Tour stop Thursday night at Webster Hall, with a cameo by Raekwon. This shit is crazy.
More footage from the show, including guest appearances and performances by Jadakiss, Styles P, Prodigy, Meyhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy and Roc Marciano HERE and HERE.
Westside Gunn sits down with Peter Rosenberg on Real Late…
Skip to 23:30 for a hilarious rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” Fight on!
Matisyahu’s album Undercurrent is out now! Check out our song off it “Blue Sky Playground” above. And below, watch extended footage of our performance at his album release party, as well as our appearance on Sway In The Morning (freestyle session starts 24 minutes in, don’t miss it).
Thanks so much to Matis for putting me on the album, and always setting me up to shine! And thanks for the mention in the Mass Appeal interview (what up Rob Kenner). Love!
Funny, in the trailer for the new Judd Apatow-produced comedy The Big Sick, the word “Stonehenge” comes up as they’re discussing a game called “You Can’t Rhyme It.” But yo, I just rhymed the word “Stonehenge” on my “Blue Sky Playground” verse! Movie looks good, check out the trailer below.
This dude Russell Westbrook is truly unbelievable. Of all the stats that a player can accumulate during a basketball game, I’ve always found the triple double to be the most impressive. It shows that you’re a complete player that can do more than just score. Well last night, Westbrook broke the single season triple double record in style, recording his 42nd of the season with 50 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists—including a game-winning three-pointer. “What a perfect ending to a historic day”—watch the highlights above.
By the way, Westbrook is averaging a triple double for the season. How ill is that?! Props to my man Duigs for predicting his impact in our Westcheddar Hoops season preview back in 2009.
The Oh, Hello boys—Nick Kroll and John Mulaney—open up the 2017 Spirit Awards. Hilarious stuff, and also it’s nuts how they joked with Warren Beatty about being high and then he went on to blow it at The Oscars the next night.
Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze held an impromptu Instagram battle over the weekend, and the biggest highlight came towards the end when Swizz pulled out an unreleased banger featuring Nas, Jay Z, Jadakiss and DMX. Peep Busta’s face! Crazy.
