Quelle Chris‘ ode to GMOs, hydrogenated oil, and the poisonous wasteland that is American nutrition has gotten a tummy tuck, stomach staples, and plastic surgery. After releasing the video for the original track “We Eat It“ (off the new album “Niggas Is Men“) last week, Quelle Chris has put together a remix featuring P.U.D.G.E & Chris Keys. The new version wraps the lyrical message around a beautiful piano loop and is as distorted as the American view on diet.

Damn Weezy you got schooled by the legend Stevie Wonder. I love Weezy’s sex talk (PAUSE!) but I agree this one was a bridge too far. Damn homie!
Stevie Wonder is not happy with Lil Wayne’s vulgar lyrics that reference Emmett Till, a black U.S. teen whose murder in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman changed the national conversation on race and civil rights.
The R&B legend says the rapper’s disturbing verse should not have made it beyond the recording studio for the world to hear.
“You can’t equate that to Emmett Till,” Wonder said. “You just cannot do that. … I think you got to have someone around you that – even if they are the same age or older – is wiser to say, ‘Yo, that’s not happening. Don’t do that.’“
Wonder, who says he is a fan and friend of Lil Wayne, made the comments when asked what he thought of the controversial lyrics in an interview Thursday.
On a remix to Future’s song “Karate Chop,” Lil Wayne compared a rough sex act to the tortuous death of 14-year-old Till in Mississippi. Following a crude reference to rough sex, Lil Wayne indicates that he wanted to do as much damage as had been done to Till.
Till’s family has asked the rapper for an apology, and Epic Records, Future’s label, said the official song will not feature the vulgar words and is employing “great efforts” to pull it down.
Wonder, 62, hopes the 30-year-old Grammy winner understands the perspective of the Till family and chooses his words wisely in the future.
“Sometimes people have to put themselves in the place of people who they are talking about,” Wonder said. “Imagine if that happened to your mother, brother, daughter or your son. How would you feel? Have some discernment before we say certain things. That goes for me or any other (song)writer.”
Astoria’s TReZ presents the visuals for “Crescent Moon,” which reveals the Q-Borough emcee’s evil alter ego, and the inner duality that ensues. Self directed, the visuals depicts TReZ at odds with his evil reflection, which he comes to realize has been responsible for his criminal behavior, despite his inherently good nature. Conflicted, TReZ decides the only way to defeat his twin, is to put an end to his own existence. Production is supplied by DJ Skizz of WNYU’s Halftime Show (89 Tech Nine), who fuses hard drums over a haunting sample, which proves to be quite a fitting soundtrack to TREZ’s narrative
Here is the first single off Al Boges & Dr. Manhattan’s debut collaboration, “The Golden Silence”. Cuts by DJ Buffalo. Art Work by my brother from another Andreis Costa.
