Rosenberg Round Table: Is "Arab Money" racist?

Hip-hop's favorite Jew sits down with some Arab emcees to get the lowdown on Busta's controversial new song.

VIDEO: N.E.R.D. - Sooner or Later

Pharrell and the nerds get their recession on for this new clip.

Adele + Naledge

Naledge (of Kidz in the Hall) turns Adele's ballad into a hip-hop banger, part of Mick Boogie's "Adele 1988" project. This is SO post-worthy.

The project comes from the folks who did last month's Viva La Hova project, so odds are this hip-hop/Adele mash session should be dope as ever.

Shout-out to Ike, the latest of many late bloomers to Adele's talents.

Dr. Dre on a Kardinal Offishall track...and it's real?

According to DJ Skee, Jimmy Iovine sent the "Set It Off" vid to Dre since his new line of headphones made an appearance. He liked the song so much that he decided to lend a verse. Granted, this was at a time when Dre thought he should be hyping himself up in the coming weeks before the release of Detox...which is NOT the case anymore. Enjoy, the doctor don't come around much these days...

VIDEO: Charles Hamilton - Brooklyn Girls

Still can't decide if I think this guy will go the distance.

For those who view the glass as half-empty, peep this brilliant analogous article comparing Hamilton's challenging of Soulja Boy to the Godfather trilogy. Pure genius.

Jay-Z - Jockin' Jay-Z (Travis Barker Remix)

I assume this was made before Travis's tragic accident, but good to hear some new stuff from him nonetheless.

VIDEO: Lily Allen - The Fear

The world's most shamelessly-outspoken pop starlet is back. The song is fine, but this vid strings too close to Feist's "1, 2, 3, 4." Right?



Thanks, Leon.

DDoff Daily featured in The Couch Sessions' "Best of 2008" series

Mad love to Stone for using my picks as the debut feature for The Couch Sessions Best of 2008 series. Though I planned on creating an extensive Best of 2008 thing on DDoff Daily at some point, dude kindly asked for my pics and I sent this over...albeit a bit haphazardly.
Here's a link to my feature, and the text is below:

This year, instead of just having me yap on about my Best of 2008, I reached out to several of our readers to give their Top 5 of the best releases of the year. I’ll be profiling a new reader each day until the end of the 2008. First up, we have DDoff, of the very dope blog Ddoff Daily out of San Fran. Check his site at And, btw…..who knew that Heavy D put out an album this year??

Name: DDoff
Location: San Francisco via TEXAS

Top 5:

5. Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III
4. Wale - The Mixtape About Nothing
3. Heavy D - Vibes (yea, boi!)
2. Radiohead - In Rainbows
1. Sia - Some People Have Real Problems

5. Nas “Sly Fox”
4. The Cool Kids - “88″
3. Santogold - “L.E.S. Artistes”
2. Hercules and Love Affair - “Blind”
1. Kid Cudi - “Day ‘n’ Nite”

?uestlove Interview with DJ Semtex


I usually don't post interviews because most of them are pretty lame...but not this one!

Quest calls out Jim Jones, Ron Browz, and HSIC (of H-Town!) as some of the names to watch in '09.

VIDEO: Jurassic 5- Ducky Boy

Off the J5 Deluxe re-issue, which you can cop now. Reunion tour, anyone?

Did Coldplay really copy Joe Satch?

In case you weren't aware, Coldplay has been sued by guitar god Joe Satriani for copying the riff of his track "If I Could Fly" for the title track to the Viva La Vida album. Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, watch this video and think again...

HILAR ALERT: Andy Samberg and Lonely Island

Featuring cameos from Molly Sims, Jamie Lynn Sigler, and Justin Timberlake. Absolute hilarity.

VIDEO: Wale - Nike Boots

18 months (at least) in the making.

Shout-out to Wale, D-Weis and the fam on the release (finally!) of Wale's first official video.

To the right, to the right...

It's an age-old tale.

Dude starts a blog.
Dude stays excited for awhile, then falls off.
Dude quits blog.

Now hold up, everybody (all three of you). This blog is NOT over. But after 10 months and 100,000+ hits to DDoff Daily (thanks to everyone for the love), there's gonna be some changes 'round here.

Unless it's what I think is a HUGE (or HUGELY TEXAN) joint, I will be posting all new mp3s on the mini-feed only (it's over there, on the top of the right side). You might notice that there's been twenty-or-so new songs over there just in the past couple days...

All other jawns (videos, news, etc.) will still be posted right here on DDoff Daily. But for those interested in the music only, look to the right from this point forward.

And that's what it do, what it does, what it is, what it was -- ddoff

The Real: "Gym Class Superheroes"

Gym Class Superheroes from jeff on Vimeo.

VIDEO: Novel feat. Ben Folds, Talib Kweli and Spree - I Am

Ben Folds has the pop-friendly, hook-driven piano ballads that I've always felt would fit well on a hip-hop track (imagine "Brick" on loop with a deep bass line? Damn!).

Props to Novel for producing this sample of my favorite Folds song, "The Luckiest." Shout-out to Ike.

Colin Munroe - Will I Stay (Remix feat. Wale and Dallas Austin)

OK, one more post before I leave...

Colin made a name for himself with his "Flashing Lights" cover, as well as his U2 cover a few months later. DDoff Daily fave Wale joins him for this remix to his latest single.

Rihanna is pretty hot...

...and that's reason enough to post the new video for "Rehab," featuring (and written by) that Timberlake fellow.

VIDEO: Wyclef feat. - Let Me Push Your Button

Not sure what project this is coming from, but nonetheless a decent (albeit standard) Clef/will joint.

The Roots on Yo Gabba Gabba

Who would've ever dreamed this band would eventually end up on a popular children's TV show...what a long strange trip it's been for the legendary Roots crew.

What, you think I'm too cool to post this?

Big brawl at the Dallas Young Jeezy show

Beatles reach deal with makers of Rock Band

The Beatles today confirmed that the first computer-focused release of their music will come through a deal with Rock Band maker Harmonix as well as its partner MTV. The unnamed title, now said to be separate from the Rock Band series in contrast to earlier claims by others, will be devoted solely to the Beatles and should represent a progression through their music. Both of the surviving Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, have contributed input to the project along with widows Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono Lennon.

They beat iTunes to the punch. Read all about it here.
