    Doomtree documentary to blow up the Blowout

    There's always a place for hometown pride, and Doomtree, our prized hip-hop collective, has certainly won an unconditional spot in many of our hearts. But that kind of pride often comes off as puffery in a band documentary, and can spoil even the ric...

    Axl Rose at odds with Dr. Pepper

    He may sing and dance like Fred Astaire, but Axl Rose rarely represents himself gracefully. In a move of play-acted skepticism, Dr. Pepper announced in March of this year that they would give a free can of their soda to every American (excluding,...

    Gimme Noise remembers hip hop pioneer MC Skat Kat

    Riding high on his success, Skat Kat released a 1991 album with his posse "The Stray Mob," but the album's middling success and a three-cylinder promotional deal with Virgin Records quickly spelled trouble for Skat Kat, and by the mid-90's he was imp...

    The Popstream: Jay Reatard, ''See/Saw''

    I mean, c'mon, look at this clip. He's riding around in a shopping cart, playing with a tiny little dog, and wandering out of some weird railroad trackside backwoods forest strumming on a flying V. There's so many goofy non-sequitirs in this -- the m...

    Kanye's Crate

    I'm still not entirely sure what to make of Kanye West. He's a temperamental ego-tripping maniac, but at least he's not run through some triple-filtered publicity wringer until he's just another generic pop star. He's done a lot to turn modern ...
