Gossip, folks

1. Old news first: Diplo and M.I.A. have, by several accounts, gone their separate ways. On the bright side, Diplo and Sasha Frere-Jones have kissed and made up. (n.h.)

1.5. S/FJ is correct, by the way. That Diplo "Hollaback" remix is online somewhere. Specifically, on the Rub wesbsite: Gwen Stefani, Hollaback Girl (Diplo Remix) (mp3)

2. Still no sign of the Missy Elliott/M.I.A. track surfacing, but here's two even more ridiculous collabos:

Snoop Dogg feat. the Bee-Gees, "Ups and Downs" (mp3, via S.I.N.)
Ol Dirty Bastard feat. Macy Gray, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (mp3, via S.I.N.)


This guy's got a couple more album tracks from Kano's Home Sweet Home; check your local P2P/torrent nozzle for full-album leaks. Hush-hush Kano tour date (singular) in major metropolitan East Coast market coming in August.

4. Everyone loves baile funk. Especially the guys who made this t-shirt.

Perhaps as a way to sell t-shirts, they've also put out DJ Sujinho's I Love Baile Funk mix. (mp3, via Lemon-Red, via boomselection, via murksleezy.) Another worthy introduction to the form. Even better, the liner notes are online.

5. If that doesn't make you a baile-funk fan, OTD guarantees this next one will: especially for our rock readers. Gotta agree with our old pal Douglas Wolk: the best baile-funk song ever is the one with the loudest guitars. Hearing this in late '04 made us want to hock all our Teengenerate and Hellacopters vinyl . . .
