RIP Ike Turner and Thank You.

Ike Turner, rock'n'roll pioneer, r&b legend, and volatile husband to Tina Turner, passed away at his San Marcos, California home today, according to TMZ. Aged 76, he reportedly died in his sleep.

Born Izear Luster Turner, Jr. in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Turner first found fame as leader of the Kings of Rhythm, whose 1951 single "Rocket 88"-- billed to Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats-- is regarded by some as the first true rock'n'roll recording.

Turner's place in popular music history wasn't cemented, however, until he met a young, fiery vocalist by the name of Anna Mae Bullock in 1956. Bullock would eventually take the name Tina Turner, and the pair would enter a relationship, both musical and romantic, as notoriously tumultuous privately as it was electrifying live on stage and on record. Throughout the 1960s and early 70s, Ike and Tina remained at the forefront of rock'n'roll culture, touring with the Rolling Stones, recording with Phil Spector, and churning out hits like "Proud Mary" and "River Deep - Mountain High".

Turner's reputation was, of course, mottled at best. He has been painted as an abusive and domineering husband to Tina, who left him in the mid-1970s. Turner also landed in prison in the early 1990s after various drug charges, and was in fact incarcerated when Ike & Tina Turner were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.

Yet Turner had, by most accounts, cleaned up his act in subsequent years. He also regained some of his footing musically, winning a Best Traditional Blues Grammy this year for Risin' With the Blues. He was also apparently working with the Black Keys and Danger Mouse on a forthcoming album.

A LASTING IMPRESSION

At least until college, her life was made, remade and remade again by events beyond her control. Born in Hounslow, London, M.I.A. (an acronym that stands for both "Missing in Action" and "Missing in Acton," the rough west London neighborhood where she lived as a teen) is the middle child of Kala and Arul Pragasam. Arul moved the family to his native Sri Lanka when M.I.A. was an infant, where he helped found a Tamil revolutionary group. Wanted by the Sri Lankan government, Arul went into hiding, and, as the conflict intensified, Kala moved the family to India. But because of their poverty and scant resources, M.I.A.'s mother was forced to move the family back again to Sri Lanka. Then, fearing for her children's safety, she eventually fled the country and settled in London. M.I.A. was eight years old. The only English words she knew were "Michael Jackson."

beanie you back but with a few misfires

Add to del.icio.us

The Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel recorded his last album, 2004's The B.Coming, in the weeks between being sentenced to a federal prison on a gun charge and the beginning of his term. That album was like a rap version of Spike Lee's The 25th Hour, the sound of someone who knew he was headed for hard times. In the almost four years since The B.Coming saw release, Beanie served 10 months in federal prison and was acquitted of an attempted murder charge that would've sent him away for a whole lot longer. He was shot twice during a botched robbery attempt. His stepfather was brutally killed in a Philly alleyway, his body set on fire. He saw the chaotic, acrimonious breakup of his label, Roc-A-Fella Records, and the dissolution of his hometown rap crew, State Property. He ignited a minor internet controversy when he told Kanye West, his labelmate and past collaborator, to come out of the closet. By any measure, Beanie Sigel has been through a turbulent few years, and so it's something of a shock to turn on the first track of The Solution and hear him bragging about his money over the Runners' cheesy faux-epic synths while R. Kelly coos professionally behind him.

Beanie Sigel is not a smooth rapper. His voice is a halting, raspy snarl, and he delivers his words with hyper-emo bluster, like he's got so much rage burning in his gut that he's helpless to hold anything back, ever. When he's pissed, he sounds dangerous; when he's depressed, he sounds about ready to bury himself alive. And when he's happy, he still sounds depressed. Beanie has always sounded great playing the growling foot-soldier to mentor Jay-Z's liquid kingpin boss. But he's historically had even better chemistry with the gravel-throated Houston legend Scarface, since Face and Sigel share the same air of hard-won authority, the sense that they're trying pull wisdom from chaotic lives. Over crackly East Coast soul-rap beats, pretty much nobody sounds better than Sigel. So it's hard to figure why Sigel would play against his own strengths as completely as he does on The Solution's first half.

If Beanie's chief virtue is his embittered honesty, it makes no sense for him to drone on about bottle-popping and money-spending over Floridian synth-rap from producers like the Runners and Cool & Dre. It's depressing to hear him coming with endless money-talk cliches: "I don't windowshop/ And I don't lease, I just pick and cop," that sort of thing. This is Jay territory, however, so it's no shock when he up on "Gutted" and completely shows Beans up without ever easing out of autopilot. "Pass the Patron" has a shuffling almost-swing drum-shuffle, like B.Coming highlight "Gotta Have It", but it never even approaches that song's raging intensity. And "I'm In" finds him spitting empathy-free anti-romance over thin, tinkly quiet storm.

Beanie is a technical master, and he sounds happy just to be rapping again after so many years on the Def Jam shelf, especially when he and guest Styles P try out a Run-DMC tag-team style on "You Ain't Ready for Me". But he wasn't built to rap over halfassed club-rap, and so the only real bright moment on the first half comes when Beanie gets very, very dark. "Go Low" is a slow, eerie electro-reggae pulse, and it finds Beanie spitting terrifying jailhouse-bully threats: "No pause, no homo, no vaseline/ When I enter niggas slow with that broomstick." For four minutes, it's like he's venting all the rage that he represses elsewhere; it's not pretty, but it sure is effective. If "Go Low" proves anything, it's that this guy can't be domesticated, not even by himself.

We just received word that legendary Cuban percussionist Carlos "Patato" Valdes passed away last night in New York City. We profiled Valdes in FADER 36 and invited him to perform at the very first Puma/FADER Gen F Live show in 2006, at which he proceeded to shred the congas like no one we have ever seen. We recorded the whole set that night which you can download below.
