And hey, guess what? "SkyMaul" is in stores today! We're trying to get the book to shoot up the sales charts at Amazon, so if you're thinking of ordering, do it today! This book gets my personal guarantee -- the only two books I've read in the last five years which are this funny are "America: The Book," and "The Areas of My Expertise." I think this book is genuinely brilliant. So buy it. If you buy it, and don't like it, you can send it to me and I'll send you your money back. Out of my pocket.

Jamie Hewlett is the award-winning artist behind the world's most popular cartoon band, The Gorillaz. Before he created The Gorillaz with his then-flatmate Damon Albarn, he created the seminal punk-rock comic Tank Girl. The Gorillaz have just released a lavish "oral history" of the band called Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre.

I talked with Jamie about how music has influenced his art, how Hollywood ruined Tank Girl, and why rock star Damon Albarn was sharing a flat in the first place.

Bullseye


Jeff Chang is the award-winning author of "Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation," and a journalist for publications including The Nation, Mother Jones and Vibe. In the 1990s, he co-founded Solesides Records, which later became Quannum Projects.

In the January 22nd issue of The Nation, Chang wrote about Jay-Z. We talk with Jeff about Jigga's long career, his most recent album, and how his art fits into the larger context of the history of hip-hop.

In bonus audio (below), Jeff talks about "crack rap," a hip-hop sub-genre that's emerged in the past few years, focusing almost exclusively on drug dealing.
