    BOB: bombs away.

    The worst thing about indie-rap is indie-rappers. And while OTD would love to see a well-reasoned, rational debate about how hip-hop's relentless emphasis on floss and coke-slinging is killing the hood and how gangster-rap is genocide, we don't really want to listen to that mess on a record.

Disco D, the producer who introduced Kevin Federline to baile funk and crafted K-Fed's infamous debut single "PopoZao," commnitted suicide on Monday at the age of 26.
