Your 5 Favorite Things for the Next 5 Minutes

Five things that intrigue me right now:

1) SPIN. For having the guts to do a Changing Face of Hip-Hop cover.

2) Azealia Banks Filthy Mouth.

3) Man or Muppet. The most fantastic moment in the new muppets movie.

4) The spooky video for M83s Midnight City. Also, the video for Vomit by Girls.

5) Rap Genius. Most people know about this already, but quickly: Its a wikipedia for hip-hop, but with the crowd supplying the meaning of lyrics. The interface is clever: line-by-line lyrics that you can click on and define. For instance, heres Kreayshawns Gucci Gucci which kindly explains that Chickenhead is old slang for a girl, sometimes an MC, who sleeps with a group of (usually popular/prolific) male rappers/emcees to get on their good side/get a boost up in their popularity and sales.
