BAD BAD

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

The 25th Anniversary edition of Michael Jackson's BAD contains a previously-unreleased, disconcertingly-upbeat anti-abortion song, "Abortion Papers," which you can stream below.

Reggae group Easy Star All Stars, who in the past have tackled Radiohead and the Beatles, just released a "Thriller" tribute album called "Thrillah."

Kanye West allegedly announced a new album, and has may have another new release on the way: a sex tape!

Mercury Prize nominees Django Django kicked of a North American tour in Chicago last night.

Widowspeak, who play a free show at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday (RSVP), play a show at Swarthmore College on Saturday with Total Slacker and Blonds.

Blonds are not to be confused with Blondes who played 100 Troutman the other night.

Teengirl Fantasy were supposed to play that show but will play a no-longer secret show at 285 Kent tonight instead.

Adam Ant is on tour and we got some pictures from his Austin show.

Big K.R.I.T. played Irving Plaza last night (9/20), and was joined by special guests Slim Thug and Paul Wall who teamed up to perform the Mike Jones favorite "Sill Tippin'". Video of that is below.

Do you agree with Forbes that Williamsburg is the third hippest neighborhood in the United States?

Did you get your new iPhone 5?

Pussy Riot, who were just awarded a LennonOno Peace Prize, are still locked up, and it still sucks, as the Dave Hill Remix of Peaches' "Free Pussy Riot" reminds us. You can watch the video for the original at Vimeo.

Europe and the US approve the Universal purchase of EMI.

Fiona Apple, who is out of jail, will play Houston tonight.

Big KRIT

Big K.R.I.T. released his first official album (following a number of mixtapes), Live From the Underground, earlier this year via Def Jam. It's a solid album and continues to prove that K.R.I.T. is one of the most consistent rappers (and producers) in today's game but, like his other recent mixtapes, it lacks a standout single like "Country Shit." He recently made a video for album track, "What U Mean" (featuring Ludacris), which you can watch below.

K.R.I.T. is currently on a tour supporting the album, which hits NYC on September 20 at Irving Plaza with Slim Thug. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now.

A list of all dates and the video are below.
