Viet Nahmean?

Word to Dennis Hopper, DJ Rondevu's new remix-heavy CD, Napalm, is a real focused collection: an unusual selection of that new new shit from the usual suspects mixed with a whole lot of Dr. Frankenstein-style collabos.

In honor of the Apocalypse Now cover art, we thought we'd flex our deep knowledge of Francis Ford Coppola's feel-good romp by breaking down this joint using dialogue from the flick. No, we don't get out much.




One through nine, no maybes, no supposes, no fractions. You can't travel in space, you can't go out into space, you know, without, like, you know, uh, with fractions - what are you going to land on - one-quarter, three-eighths? What are you going to do when you go from here to Venus or something? That's dialectic physics.

The dude Hov would probably not even piss on Game if he was on fire. It is, you could say, scientifically impossible for these two to jump on a track with each other. But! Through the innovative technology of mixtapes, Rondevu joins these two opposing forces. Dialectic physics, son! The track is called "Get My Shit Off." Rondevu goes digging for an older Jay acappella, Jayceon does the hip-hop honors thing he does so well ("Another memorial for Makavelli and Big Pop"...nice, those dudes are totally slept on!)

Saigon... shit. I'm still only in Saigon.

Fresh off his not so blinding star turn on Entourage, the Yardfather joins up with Bun B on "Take The Money", spitting nothing but the trillest of trillisms. It's over Common's "The Corner" beat, which always seems to sound better without Com. Just sayin! PS, Atlantic/Fort Knox (Knocks?): RELEASE THE ALBUM! There is not gonna be any bigger promo push then homie being on an HBO comedy. Seize the day, doggies.

What the hell do you know about surfing? You're from goddamned New Jersey.

We imagine this is possibly what was running through the mind of Billy Danze or Lil Fame as they shared "Raw" with Mobb Deep (This is another Rondevu remix, so, no, they weren't really sharing anything.) Now we're not saying M-O-B-B are softbatch...and yes, we are aware that both duos now roll deep with the Unit. We read allhiphop too. But one can only guess how Brownsville's best felt sharing the track with braindead P. Do we all know that PRODIGY USED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST RAPPERS IN NORTH AMERICA? NAY, THE PLANET?! This dude fell off like Kevin Costner in Waterworld.

The horror. The horror.
"Curious Suzie" by Tony Yayo, 50 Cent and Joe. Let's really chop this up; is there anything more cold shower-esque in the game then a "love" song by the Predicate Felon? "Everytime you touch me/ You please my knees." What does that even mean? Does he have a fucking torn ACL? Is this girl giving him rehab? Also what is up with Joe? Is he like cryogenically frozen in 50's basement and then they roll him out twice a year to hop on the thug-luv anthem? The Ted Williams of this rhythm and gangster game.
