Weekly Q-Tips Week Ending 5/16/10

  • Gucci Mane was released from Fulton County Jail at midnight on May 11, 2010, technically the 12th. Here is his statement. That Chain looks good for a fresh-out-of-jail homie.

  • Of all people to make an appearance on the Martha Stewart show, Outkast's very own Big-Boi stopped by this week with his Mother and I believe that they grilled lobster with her. See a clip of his visit on Stewart's website.
  • Weezy was nabbed for 'music contraband' at Rikers Island this week. He was caught with an mp3 charger and headphones while another inmate had a watch that doubled as an mp3 player. It's undetermined how these items wound up in their possession. Lil Wayne has men on the inside everywhere...Check out the blog he's keeping up while he's locked up.
  • Bummer, The Strokes are planning on waiting until January 2011 to release their new LP. So I guess, we'll be lucky to get it by the end of next year. This new album is like the upcoming Harry Potter movie.
  • Katy Perry has announced the title of her new album: Teenage Dream
    • This is eerily familiar to a similar to: Teen Dream, the beautiful release from the lauded indie pop savants Beach House. Beach House had to say this about the news.

  • M.I.A. has titled her new album /\/\ /\ Y /\, the most ridiculous way to spell "Maya," her real name. The 32-year-old artist has pushed back the release of the album to 7/13 from 6/28.
  • There are a lot of good releases coming out next week, just like every other week in May. Choice releases for Tuesday May 18th, 2010. 
    • Band of Horses – Infinite Arms [Brown Records]
    • The Black Keys – Brothers [Nonesuch]
    • LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening [DFA/Virgin]
    • The Rolling Stones – Exile on Main St. [Reissue] [Universal]
