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.

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...

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.

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 ddoffdaily.blogspot.com. And, btw…..who knew that Heavy D put out an album this year??
Location: San Francisco via TEXAS
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”

SEMTEX TV - ?UESTLOVE BREAKS DOWN THE HOTTEST MC'S FOR 09' from DJ SEMTEX on Vimeo.
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.

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...

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
