    Watch the Lotfy Nathan-directed video for Blaqstarr's 'Hands Up Thumbs Down'
    This thing where Mad Decent and Blaqstarr repurpose old Blaqstarr tracks for 2014 is weird as hell, man. For Baltimore club heads, tracks 'Feel It In The Air' and 'Hands Up Thumbs Down' (released earlier this year as "The Blaq-Files EP" along with 'Lemme Hump U' and 'Slide To The Left') are classics and we hear them every time we go out somewhere on a Friday night, and look, we get it, the rest of the world hasn't heard these things yet, but something about it is just kind of, well, off. Back when "The Blaq-Files" (which actually features some of these songs re-recorded, Blaq told Al Shipley in December 2013) was released in January of this year, it came with a typically icky introduction from Diplo, which has plenty to SMH at for sure, including this line: "While most producers were making records for the radio, Blaqstarr was making a soundtrack to murder people with by using a screaming Lil Jon sample played like a piano." Yikes! I thought we were past this Bmore-fetishizing junk.

    No Trivia: James Nasty, Lor Scoota and Young Moose, Bmore bros go home, and more
    The title of this music column is "No Trivia," which is swiped from a Wu Tang Clan lyric ("Raw, I'm a give to ya, with no trivia") because it's just a cool-ass way of saying, "no bullshit," which is a mission statement when I sit down to type out words...
