    So the Wu-Tang reunited on Jon Stewart last night…

    August 8th, 2014

    Listen, I love me some Wu but there are 9 active members as of now. You mean to tell me all 9 were okay with this atrocious hook on their new single “Ron O’Neal?” The song itself seems fine for 2014. It’s what you might expect, especially based on that new album cover. But daaaaaaaamn, we really gotta continue with these cheesy Miguel-type hooks for this group? I’m thoroughly pleased they’re all back and looking happy. Meth is on another planet the way Jon playfully puts his hand over his face while he is talking. U-God looks healthy. Cappadonna looking like the freshest cabbie we know. Masta Killa looks like an extra from Sons of Anarchy. Rae mumbling about some philosophical bullshit but at least he’s getting paid now.  All of this is good news but that hook. Yuck! What do you think about the latest Wu single?

    T.R.O.Y. Quiz: How Hip-Hop Are You? #2

    August 7th, 2014

    Well that was quick.  Yesterday we launched our new quiz and it took off like wildfire. Social media had people disgusted with their miserable scores. I realize I’m the one creating these questions so I’m bias, but there were definitely a few freebies I thought we gave you.  Apparently that wasn’t the case and even the top scholars I know got a few questions wrong. Not many scored 100%.  So, let’s try this one more time before we go to break. These quizzes will be published on The T.R.O.Y. blog bi-weekly, so yesterday if you did poorly, now is your chance to redeem yourself. I don’t want to say I dumbed this down, but it should be significantly easier than yesterday. I’ll continue to make these entertaining and informative, but I also want to add something for everyone. No site. No blog. No app. Nobody is fucking with us. This is fucking M.I.T. when it comes to hip-hop.
