GOSPEL OF GHOST

Wu-Tang leg­end Ghost­face Kil­lah dropped knowl­edge in our Ques­tion­naire. Those who should shut up in­cluded “Mag­a­zine moth­er­fuck­ers ask­ing me the same ques­tions all the fuck­ing time. I don’t want to hear that same shit, like ‘Yo, what’s up with Wu?’ and ‘How’d you get your name?’ I don’t like that shit.” We’re glad he achieved suc­cess, be­cause if not, “I might have a gun to your kid­neys right now. I might’ve been in your house. I might be dead. I might be par­a­lyzed or in jail. I got no high school ed­u­ca­tion. That leaves me with fewer op­tions where I gotta be get­ting my hands dirty, G.”

THE FEIST FLING

In an in­ter­view about Open Sea­son, a full-length col­lec­tion of remixes of her 2004 al­bum Let It Die, Leslie Feist re­vealed the un­usual ori­gins of a par­tic­u­lar track, “Lonely Lonely (Fris­bee’d Mix)”: some­one threw it onto the stage at a show in Lon­don, UK. “It was in a plas­tic slip­cover and lit­er­ally al­most got crushed un­der my heel as I walked off­stage. I stuck it in my pocket, put it on in my ho­tel room and was floored. I know that melody in­side and out and I know the time sig­na­ture, yet [the remixer] found a new way to de­liver them.”
