Music:

THE BEST OF DJ QUIK: MIXED BY MATTHEW AFRICA

Quik makes incredibly beautiful laid-back G-funk beats. He also has the silkiest hair in hip-hop, as witnessed in this video. TBE’s crack research team recently discovered this chronicle of DJ Quik’s many hairstyles.

YOUNG JEEZY: TRAPPIN’ AIN’T DEAD

By now everyone knows Jeezy’s last album was better than Wayne’s and maybe the best hip hop record of 2008, but it’s still said as though saying it is breaking some sort of taboo. Anyway this mixtape isn’t amazing but it’s pretty good, especially the freestyles over other people’s beats.

LIL’ WAYNE & FRIENDS: EVERY GIRL

Speaking of Wayne, this is the video for his entry into the hottest song of the summer sweepstakes.

Words:

AIPAC spy case witness was urged to fake his own death.

Tony Judt calls Obama to account on Palestine in the NYT. Although TBE believes using a dictionary definition to start any piece of writing is just about the most hackneyed and cliched thing ever, we still applaud the Times for publishing this.

Pictures:

More Iran from the Big Picture.
