A) I like the new album art for Eminem’s Recovery. Now where is the album?? UPDATE: Nah Right also has the tracklist. A Rihanna feature? Not what I was expecting. I’m looking forward to the production credits next.
B) The Feed The Animals Wikipedia page has already been a great resource for keeping track of all the sample’s from Girl Talk’s last album. How about something a little more interactive? This genius site allows you to listen to Feed The Animals and samples pop up as they hit your eardrums. (via Girl Talk’s facebook page)
C) T.I. just world premiered “I Got Your Back” featuring Keri Hilson. The DJ Toomp produced track is my early favorite for Song of the Summer. Get it via Nah Right.
D) Based on “How I Got Over”, the track list and newly released “Dear God 2.0”, I don’t see how the Roots can fail on their next release.

E) The Hood Internet. Their track record for pulse-pounding mash-ups is getting out of control. Hear their mastery combining Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” with Crystal Castles’ “Baptism”.The Hood Internet – Rude Baptism (Rihanna x Crystal Castles) by hoodinternet
F) I feel like these guys might be two of the most consistent remixers right now:
Andre of RAC brings up the tempo a touch and gives the keys a rest on Tegan & Sara’s heartfelt track “Alligator”. Nice work, as usual.

You should probably hear RAC’s last T&S remix too:Tegan & Sara – Back In Your Head (RAC Mix) by Remix Artist Collective
Alan takes off the melancholy wrapping of Phantogram’s gem and turns it into bubbly, summer-friendly fun.

G) Hov + Jack White (and maybe Amy Winehouse)? Whatever this is, I’m going to like it.
