A recording of a young Jimi Hendrix has been restored and released after going unheard for nearly 50 years. Prior to achieving megastardom, Hendrix played with the soulful Curtis Knight & the Squires in the mid ’60s . Together they cut the instrumental track called “Station Break,” which has only recently been unearthed. Although it’s not technically a Jimi Hendrix track, his guitar-playing is prominent and his embryonic talent is incredibly clear.

He may deserve all the grief he gets, but still, it ain’t easy being Chris Brown. Rumor has it the embattled R&B singer is taking baby mama Nia Gonzalez, A.K.A.

The family of a man killed by Suge Knight in an alleged hit and run has leaked video footage of the incident to TMZ— and it’s brutal. The clip clearly shows Knight’s pickup truck striking two men, injuring Cle “Bone” Sloan and killing Terry Carter.

The interwebz still hasn’t recovered from The Great Weed Debate, courtesy of 2 Chainz and Nancy Grace back in January.

Yesterday we told you how Kanye West borrowed the So Help Me God album art from a 2010 heavy metal album. We’re not sure what significance it holds (illuminati?), but now it seems his new single also has an unusual genesis. “All Day” dropped yesterday afternoon and features not only Theophilus London and Allan Kingdom, but Paul McCartney on whistling duties. However, that’s not Macca’s only role in the song’s creation. The final minute of the rap track bears a striking resemblance to one of Sir Paul’s songs from 45 years ago.
