While I'm slacking on updates, I'll share this recent interview with NYOIL recorded on WBAI's Hip-Hop Takeover. It's fairly brief and pretty interesting if you've never heard him speak before. He seems passionate and genuine. I'm not yet decided if he's a dope MC behind the relative shock-value, but it's nice to hear someone with some substance and thought behind their rhymes, so I'll keep listening for now.

A Tribute to Ignorance has had a few entries on NYOIL, including his controversial videos and some heated discussion that the artist himself has gotten involved in here, here, and here.

I don't know if these interviews are mad boring to everyone, but I like them when it's a charismatic guest with a good story to tell. Regardless, I will try to focus on some more music soon.

Sorry for the delay in posts...shit is rather disorganized here.

Termanology dropped a tremendous 12" this year, thanks in no small part to beats from DJ Premier and Statik Selektah, and a guest verse from Trife Diesel. Despite a penchant for looking like a corny bastard on his cover art, Term is pretty nice on the mic himself. Here are three verses from his appearance on WNYU's Halftime Show earlier this year.

Apparently he's dropped a few mixtapes; has anyone heard them? I'll have to check a couple out once my self-imposed hiatus from buying any new music ends.
