A World Gone Mad has a very nice little rundown of news concerning older rappers making comebacks. The Rob Base and Fu-Schnickens thing is pretty funny (I haven't decided yet if it's good or bad) but can we please ruminate on something here?

X-Clan and Insane Clown Posse touring together.

X-Clan and Insane Clown Posse are touring together!!

What the fuck? Why is one of hip-hop's most militantly afrocentric crews touring with that aggro white boy bullshit? I'm all for racial unity, but Insane Clown Posse? Really? And that's not even getting into the talent gap between them... I mean, I'll admit I didn't hear the new X-Clan record, but that first single gave the impression that Brother J's still got it. I just don't understand.
