Gang Starr, Hip-Hop's Chilliest Pair Of Heads, Returns

Gang Starr is back. After 16 years of silence, the revered duo of Guru and DJ Premier has put out a surprise new single, "Family and Loyalty." The song features posthumous verses from Guru, who passed away in 2010, DJ Premier's trademark string chops and light touch, and an acrobatic verse from J. Cole. During their heyday in the '90s, Gang Starr was one of the most popular and acclaimed East Coast hip-hop acts. Initially, the group was Boston-born Guru and DJ 1, 2 B Down, plus a string of helpers, an iteration which only lasted through a few early demos . Following a move south to New York, Guru linked with DJ Premier, where his heady, straight-faced rapping and Premier's jazz-indebted scratches and production (initially serrated, minimal; later luxurious and orchestral) created a world-conquering pairing that would become a high-water mark in the pantheon of NYC rap. YouTube "This record means so much to me," Premier says in a statement on the surprise release. "It's a continuation

The Cuban Roots Of Rock And Roll

If you submitted the DNA of rock and roll to one of those ancestry outfits, you'd get traces of just about every kind of music that developed in the U.S. Spirituals, folk, blues, country and western music have all have contributed to that early 1950s explosion of what became known as rock and roll. But listen closely and you can hear influences from the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, specifically Cuba. Can you hear the cha-cha-cha in The Rolling Stones ' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"? Or the mambo in Ray Charles ' "What I'd Say"? Or the Afro Cuban clave beat in "Bo Diddley" by Bo Diddley ? This week we put on our lab coats for a deeper dive into that DNA with two experts: Bobby Sanabria , a multi Grammy-nominated musician/educator and Lauren Onkey , the Senior Director of NPR Music and a walking encyclopedia on the history of rock and roll. Like our country itself, rock and roll is an alchemy of distinct cultural expressions that exist side by side. They come together to create a hybrid

Trump: Reports Of Alleged Improper Conversation With Foreign Leader Are 'Ridiculous'

Updated at 12:05 p.m. ET President Trump blamed "a political hack job" for reports that a whistleblower has charged he had an improper conversation with a foreign leader. The Washington Post on Friday reported the conversation in question involves Ukraine. Trump said he did not know the identity of the whistleblower, "but I hear it's a partisan person." Trump said it was a "totally appropriate conversation. It was actually a beautiful conversation," although he did not specify with whom. Asked if he mentioned former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in the conversation, Trump said, "Somebody ought to look into Joe Biden's statement because it's disgraceful." Trump alleged that Biden "talked [about] billions of dollars that he's not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor was taken off the case." Trump supporters have alleged that the senior Biden, while in office, urged the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was allegedly looking into son

A New Way Of Paying For Maternity Care Aims To Reduce C-Sections

The thrill of delivering newborns helped pull Dr. Jack Feltz into the field of obstetrics and gynecology. More than 30 years later, he still enjoys treating patients, he says. But now Feltz is also working to change the way doctors are paid for maternity care. Feltz's New Jersey-based practice, Lifeline Medical Associates, recently partnered with the insurer UnitedHealthcare to test a new payment model. The insurer sets a budget with the practice to pay doctors one lump sum for prenatal services, delivery and 60 days of care afterward. If the costs come in below that amount, the medical practice gets to keep some of the savings. (Hospitals aren't a part of this contract; the insurer pays them separately for their services.) "We've always been taught to take care of patients as if they were our mothers and our daughters," says Feltz, who also leads a coalition of obstetricians called the U.S. Women's Health Alliance that advocates for high-quality, affordable care. "But now we have to
