Walk to cure Lupus in honor of J Dilla, and then go see Madlib, Karriem Riggins as Supreme Team, J Rocc, Peanut Butter Wolf, Percee P & Guilty Simpson at Highline Ballroom in NYC on December 2nd. Tickets are on sale. Percee P is currently on tour with Common and Q-Tip, which also means you can see Percee at Nokia Theatre on October 7th. Q-Tip is also playing Gramercy Theatre on October 16th.

In somewhat related news, MF Doom was recently scheduled to play Central Park. How was that? I bet it would have been better if he showed up. According to Wikipedia,

On 22 September 2007, at a show in New York where DOOM was supposed to be the headliner but cancelled, the MC for the show, Kenny Muhammad, asked for a minute of silence for MF DOOM who was "fighting for his life in the hospital".
Not good. He didn't show up at the Independent in San Fran on September 18th either, and this all comes after accusations of him lip-syncing at some shows in August. People are now starting rumors that he died, and AllHipHop claims that, "Apparently, MF Doom is in the hospital, but not from a heart attack." I hope whatever is wrong, that he comes out of it okay!

The Madlib show is part of an upcoming Stones Throw records tour that also includes a show at the El Ray Theatre in LA on November 8th. More dates TBA.

Fuck MF Doom. He apparently doesn't give a shit about his fans, and his fans shouldn't give a shit about him.

How so? The guy rips off his fans by having a fucking impersonator take his place at shows. He doesn't show up when he's scheduled to, and he apparently lip-syncs some shows. If the guy cared even a little bit about his fans, he wouldn't consistently fuck them over like that.

"a fucking impersonator"

strong words, especially for the internet. is your adrenaline rushing?

I had a ticket for his show in sf. Doom called in MIA for a show in august like 20 minutes before doors. Then, in September, he did the same thing. This was at the independent. If he was sick...he would know for damn sure over the course of one month, and not 20 minutes before doors.

he's addicted to crack - the security guards at the SF show said they saw him smoking (crack) for two hours backstage and then he cancelled the show twenty minutes before he was going to go on.

I know it sounds cliche, but he literally has a crack-cocaine addiction.

Didn't wanna say it but now you know.

And the imposter shows were the only way he could get money for hospital treatment. Ain't got no medical coverage in this business. Don't believe the party line bullshit from fuckin Stones Throw, Doom is following Whitney yo. Can't lay off da pipe.

Posted by Tarsis | September 27, 2007 10:18 AM

super mothafuckin' villain, god

never none nicer.

Why the fuck would anyone buy a ticket for a hip hop show anyway? They all fucking blow...and 95% of the time they are cancelled or end early/in a riot. Listen to the album, it's the only way its bearable anyway half the time.

get off dooms nuts!!!Dude is in the hospital Have some compassion for this cat!

Posted by crate digga | October 10, 2007 4:40 PM

whatever Doom is only human. Let him have a slip up w/out being so quick to judge. Anyone you place on a pedastal will surely disappoint.

Posted by $ean Money | December 3, 2007 1:45 PM

Won't stop rockin' till he clocked in a gazillion grand."
