General Principles

As someone who (at some point) had the ambition to get somewhere in the Dutch Hip Hop industry (which is booming right now), the following caught my eyes and ears. It's an album by DJ.Muggs and Wu-Tang's GZA called "Grandmasters".
What should you care, well, maybe cause they blend Hip Hop with chess on it. Apparently, Muggs and GZA both have a passion for the 64 squares just as we do. Hot tip! It seems that GZA plays chess on the Internet even, at none other place then Yahoo!.
So if you're a Yahoo! player, you just might have crossed swords with GZA once. Though i haven't got a clue as to what his nickname might be.
Anyway, i don't know if there are more Hip Hop fans amongst the Knights, but i leave ya'll with a videoclip of one of the tracks of the album. It features samples from none other then Garry Kasparov and they use a lot of chess imagery. You can safely download it to your computer. The track is called "General Principles". Back in the days, we would have called this "def", "dope" or "fresh", and it defenitly fits that description :)
