Big Pooh has conjured up a whopping new remix with some big names to go along with it. "They Say," the most recent single released from Pooh's upcoming album, Dirty Pretty Things, gets a once-over by producer Focus..., along with some stellar guest verses from two rappers who have spent much of their now legendary careers unjustly overshadowed, namely, Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest and T3 of Slum Village.

"I wanted to do a remix that felt like when Pete Rock or DJ Premier used to remix records, give it a whole new feel," says Big Pooh. "As I was listening to the track and thinking about the message, I reached out to two legends from legendary groups who's contributions and skills may have also been overlooked." With Big Pooh's first verse untouched, the remix moves on to Phife's honest dialogue, sparring with the opinions of music fans who have may doubted his skills as a solo artist. T3, who closes out the track, offers his own scathing bars. For his part, Focus... doesn't disappoint, flipping the Cali-vibe of the original in favor of some classic horn chops of heavy drums, swapping out Choklate's singing in lieu of some sharp scratching that serves to keep things entertaining between verses.

Devo Spice Update - New Song and The Return of Manic Mondays

Devo Spice Update - New Song and The Return of Manic Mondays

Courtesy Devo Spice.

Manic Mondays is a 15-20 minute comedy show that I did from 2005-2009.  It featured 3 comedy songs, News of The Stupid, and whatever other comedy bits I could think of and had time for.  It was posted online late Sunday night so that it was ready for your commute back to work Monday morning.  In September of 2009 I ended the show for various personal reasons.  During my set at Con On The Cob I surprised the crowd by bringing it back.

The first episode of Manic Mondays in over two years went live on October 17th:

Yesterday’s episode can be downloaded from here:

New episodes will be posted weekly on Sunday night.  You can listen to all the past episodes and get new ones on the Manic Mondays page on my web site:

Or if you are hip to the whole podcasting thing you can have the episodes delivered to you automatically using this RSS feed:

Please note that iTunes still lists the old feed which no longer works.  I am trying to contact Apple to fix this but haven’t had any luck yet.  I may have to just submit the new feed and hope they remove the old one.

The other thing I did at Con On The Cob during my set was debut a new song.  This song is a parody of “How To Love” by Lil Wayne called “How To Sing.”  It features horrible singing and annoying music, just like the original song, but unlike the original song my version has witty lyrics that actually say something.

This song is now available to listen to and/or download for free at The FuMP:

That’s it folks!  Enjoy the new stuff and help me spread the word.
