Murder Dem: 50 Cent Channels Ninjaman on “Murder One”

Words by Spliffington—

A reinvigorated 50 Cent hopped back to life yesterday, reverting back to the old cross hangry miserable 50 we know and love with the new mixtape, The Lost Tape. One track in particular, “Murder One,” grabbed our attention and not because of Eminem’s cameo, or the beat from Araab Muzik. After being exhorted by Eminem to “go back to doin’ the shit you used to do” on the intro, 50 gets things going with a lyrical assault (“Murder dem, murder dem…) originated by, and co-opted from, the Don Gorgon Ninjaman, on the classic boasting track “Murder Them.”

Field Trips with Spliffington: Cutty Ranks Meets the Gambian Cassette Vendors

Words by Herbert Spliffington, Illustration by Victor Kerlow—

In the latest installment of his storytelling-n-illustrations column Field Trips with Spliffington, Herbert Spliffington tells the story (with an assist from his Field Trip World colleague, Victor Kerlow) of how he discovered the music of Cutty Ranks while crossing into the Gambia from Senegal in the ’90s. Isn’t that how we all first heard “Limb by Limb”? With Cutty having just returned from hiatus with new music last week, what better time to pay tribute to this most uniquely vicious dancehall bad bwoy?

Video: Ninjaman feat. General B, “Outta Road”

Words by Spliffington

Another brand new combination tune from Ninjaman, “Outta Road” with General B, complete with video! In fact, this bare bones clip of Ninja vibing in the studio with General B is the closest thing to a proper music video we’ve ever seen for one of his songs.
