Ursula Rucker in My Father’s Daughter

My Father’s Daughter is the story of my mother’s often-troubled, hard-ass life…and how it informed my living/life/self. It is honest, raw and necessary. It is the story of a true…true survivor.  And the music that Tim Motzer created to accompany my journey…is breathtaking. And the visual images just add another beautiful layer to the already multi-layered story. I know it’s Memorial Day weekend and all…but PLEASE…please come and go on this journey with me…and quite possibly feed your soul/spirit. Those who came to the premiere in February…if u dug it…please leave a glowing testimonial ;) ) May 22 & 23…THE NEW FREEDOM THEATRE. Please spread the word…and come share the experience.” -Ursula Rucker 

GZA, Tom Morello & Crazy Legs Perform “The Mexican” With the Roots on “The Tonight Show”

This was a pretty awesome hip-hop moment right here. Growing up a Wu-Tang stan, just the idea of GZA doing a solo performance on late night television in it of itself is amazing, but the genius takes things a step further. GZA is joined by Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello (shredding like no other and dropping in a wild sound effects “solo”, as you’d expect) for this killer performance of their new collabo track, “The Mexican” (with Kara Lane from k.i.d on the hook) on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “The Mexican,” of course, is a cover of the 1972 Babe Ruth track of the same name – one that has gone on to be sampled many times by hip-hop artists. The Roots supply the sounds, GZA brings the bars, and Crazy Legs and ABgirl come through at the end with a brief yet very dope performance to keep things all the way hip-hop – definitely a must watch. GZA’s long awaited new LP, Dark Matter, is coming soon..
