1. #MFDoomsday: 100 Rap Song Titles About (Or At Least Coulda Been About) the RAPture.


    To paraphrase the great Pete Rock, this weekend should've been time to "get wrek with the Creator." Instead it was time to get busy... tweeting. What began as a late Friday afternoon tweet about listening to the Jungle Brothers "In Days 2 Come" in anticipation of Saturday's supposed Doomsday begat an impromptu, 4 hour, end-of-the-world rap barbeque with our Twitter followers bringin' the special sauce. (Hip Hop Hooray for crowdsourcing!) The result of this communal brainstorm: 100 rap song titles applicable to the Rapture. We haven't experienced so much rap nerding-out since the basement dungeon days of Book of Rap Lists . (Now THAT was a Good Book. Thank you Black Jesus.)

      Mr. Lif also had a one-two punch of apocalypse tracks at the end of "I Phantom:" "Earthcrusher" and "Post Mortem" with Jean Grae, El-P, Insight and Akrobatik helping out.

      Good call. There's plenty of good ones we forgot. Guess we'll save them for the next Apocalypse. (Apocalypse 2, Electric Boogaloo).
