Wu-Tang Clan’s 10th Official member Cappadonna renaissance continues. Last year he got down with his Wu-Tang comrades on RZA’s “The Man With The Iron Fists” OST on the Wu-Tang Clan reunion track “Six Directions Of Boxing” and with his appearance on the Wu-Tang Clan & D-Block project “Wu-Block”. Above is “Pull Your Life Together” off his upcoming album forthcoming double-CD, ‘Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre,’ which will be released on 2-26-2013 on RBC Records.
I really like that Cappadonna mentions that he doesn’t tip at the strip club while feeling empathy for a stripper.
Kendrick Lamar had my album of the year “Good Kid M.A.A.D. City” here on donewaiting. Above is a video for “Backseat Freestyle” which Lamar and Jerome D, Dave Free directed.
If you like this you can buy this album on i-tunes.
If you don’t get bored of scrolling down this list you can also watch random videos from Ohio artists. And read more lists in the Other Paper.
40. Ghetto Brothers – Power Fuerza
Ghetto Brothers’ Power Fuerza is a record created in 1971 by a South Bronx gang that turned into a band. This storied record was reissued this year. You know the Hip Hop story that turns the Warriors into Wild Style?
Something like that.
I think that BARACK OBAMA should have these dudes reform for his inauguration to promote Peace, Love ,Unity and Having Fun.

House of Blues Chicago
December 22, 2012
Kill Hannah hosted their annual party with Dot Dot Dot at the HOB Chicago along with returning members guitarist Jonny Radtke, who has been involved with Filter for a few years and drummer Elias Mallin, who’s been touring with Kesha. Ke$ha? Yeah, that’s it.

P.Blackk & Fabrashay A ride around Columbus and rap at various spots.. Personally, I love the scene where they rap in front of the graffiti in the bathroom of Carabar. Renee Dion adds vocals for this J.Rawls produced track.
This is off the P.Blackk & J. Rawls album “Contemporary Nostalgia” which drops tonight (Dec 30th) on P.Blackk’s bandcamp.
Patrick Carney tells Tony Hawk a story about stalking Akron, Ohio heroes Devo as a teenager.
It was a good year for good rock books. Joe Oestreich of Watershed released Hitless Wonder, probably my fave of the year, and Mike Doughty released The Book of Drugs. Doughty has been a busy man, and I’ve found he’s generally worth listening to, whether writing or releasing solo albums or mouthing off about the music industry.
His new album The Flip is Another Honey ($5) is a covers record. Check out the first video for the John Denver cover “Take Me Home, Country Roads” — a song you’re bound to hear at any given open mic or karaoke night. But Doughty does a good job of making it his own without excising the hook. (I’m also not ashamed to admit I’ve spent much of the holidays listening to an old vinyl copy of Rocky Mountain Christmas.)
Back in August we premiered the first video from Columbus ex-pat and Anyway Records alum Jenny Mae. The song was called “Ho Bitch,” off the album Don’t Wait Up for Me. (The track is far more lovely than the title implies.)
As mentioned previously, Mae played one of her first sets in ages over the weekend at Anyway Records’ 20th Anniversary show at Ace of Cups, and Surly Shirley was kind enough to capture some video of her performing “Ho Bitch,” ably backed by the Woosley Band. Enjoy.
And here’s that original video again:
