R.I.P. Nate Dogg

My homie Kevin sent me this message after learning that Long Beach rapper Nate Dogg died on Tuesday at 41: “I can’t believe it ... or maybe I just don't want to. But the rhythm is no longer the bass, and the bass is no longer the treble.”

Busdriver

An underground MC’s road isn’t paved in gold

By Marisa Demarco
Busdriver has never been a superstar. But if someone gave him the keys to the music-industry-mobile, he says he would surely go for a ride.

Bump It!

By Patricia Sauthoff [ Thu May 20 2010 2:36 PM ]

OMG! It’s summer. Y’know how I know? I mean, other than the short skirts all around town.

Bass baby. It’s blaring out of cars all over Central. Just now, on a quick ciggie break I got a taste of the old school. N.W.A.’s “F* Tha Police,” Onyx’s “Slam” (seriously, and that was NOT expected) and a little throwback from a few years ago, Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” Yay!

I love cruisin’ music, though I’m never too good at choosing my own selections. In high school my best friend and I went for a little Main Street U.S.A. drive through downtown Silver City -- where she’d just moved -- blasting Smashing Pumpkins. Naturally, we got some funny looks, but eventually she made friends anyway. (In my own defense, I at least made sure her Grateful Dead CD stayed where it belonged, in the case under the seat.)
