Ice Cube – No Vaseline

 

Got damn I’m glad y’all set it off.
Used to be hard now you’re just wet and soft.

Ice Cube decries N.W.A as a group that was once hardcore, but has now lost their touch. He uses a penis (“hard”) and vagina (“wet and soft”) analogy to describe them.

First you was down with the AK
And now I see you on a video with Michel’le?

After Ice Cube left N.W.A, the remaining members appeared in several music videos by Ruthless Records R&B singer Michel’le, including “Nicety,” “Keep Watchin’,” and “Something In My Heart.” Cube is probably specifically referring to the “Something In My Heart” video, which included scenes where Eazy-E and Dr. Dre wore costumes to fit with the video’s 1920s theme.

Cube is pointing out how ironic it is that a group who touts themselves as hardcore—down with a violent life of AK-47 assault rifles—is now playing dress-up in silly music videos for soft love ballads.

It’s also worth noting that Dr. Dre and Michel’le were a couple for many years, and have a child together – there’s also an implication that Dre is pussy-whipped.

Check out the new video “Winning as Truth” from Los Angeles based indie rock band Trapdoor Social. These guys are bad ass activists and tour the country with a solar-powered trailer.  They also run a 100% solar powered music and arts festival called Sunstock every year.

A Tour Inside Led Zeppelin’s Legendary Private Jet, The Starship

December 8, 2016 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Music |

In 1973, Led Zeppelin toured North American Tour for the ninth time. The tour was divided into two legs, with performances commencing on 4 May and concluding on 29 July 1973.

Led Zeppelin would travel on The Starship – a pimped United Airlines Boeing 720B passenger jet owned by Ward Sylvester and singer Bobby Sherman. For $2,500 a day, or $5 a mile, the airplane was specifically modified to cater to the biggest band in the world.

Inside, the main cabin contained seats and tables, revolving arm chairs, a 30-foot long couch running along the right hand side of the plane opposite the bar, a television set and video cassette player; an electronic organ was built into the bar. At the rear of the plane were two back rooms, one a den with a low couch and pillows on the floor, the other a bedroom, complete with a white fur bedspread and shower room.

The Starship was even staffed by two stewardesses, Susie, and attractive eighteen-year old blonde, and Bianca, a twenty-two year old with a dark complexion and a sense of humor.
