A sometime collaborator with Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, Juan Martín is one of the most versatile flamenco guitarists currently playing, combining as he does a time-honed technical mastery with an evergreen sensitivity to his instrument’s emotional range. This album, from his own label, pairs his talents with the younger but equally gifted guitarist Chaparro from Malaga, best-known as a skilled accompanist and exponent of the loose flamenco licks known as falsetas. Together, the duo play through an assortment of palos (rhythms), ranging from the sweet rumba of ‘Tu Eres la Fuente’ to the delightful alegría ‘Mar de Plata’ to two Sephardic songs that exude a more plaintive spirit. Two guitars playing flamenco allows for a richness and rhythmic vitality that one alone can never achieve, and Martín and Chaparro also explore the percussive potential of their 12 collective strings. Theirs is an entirely natural musical conversation, and all the rehearsing seems subsumed beneath something mellow and instinctive. An inspired joining of two of flamenco’s most exciting forces, with all the energetic fun of, say, Rodrigo y Gabriela, but with heaps more depth.

As Drake continues to flame Meek Mill at OVO Fest in Toronto, Ja Rule is chiming in on his role in the rap beef.
Just at the height of Drake’s festival finale performance where Drizzy rapped “Back To Back” in front of a PowerPoint of Meek Mill memes, Ja Rule took to Twitter to tell people his two cents on the matter.
If y'all wanna compare #meekvsdrake to 50vsRule I'm gonna need one of these niggas to get stabbed or shot!!! 😂😂😂 🍎🍊…
— Ja Rule (@Ruleyork) August 4, 2015
Ja is referring to his beef with 50 Cent back in the day. In 1999, at the surmounting height of the fellow Queens rappers careers, Ja and 50 partook in their own rap beef. The competing rappers started their fight when Ja accused 50 of rolling with someone who at one time stole jewelry from Ja. This beef seemed to reach its boiling point when a physical fight broke out in a New York studio where rapper Black Child of Murder Inc. stabbed 50 Cent. Fif had to get three stitches from the wound. Exchanging diss records and physical hits was business as usual for 50 and Ja for years until the latter admitted in a 2011 interview that their beef was over.
About twenty minutes after sending the initial tweet, the Queens MC clarified his earlier post and made it clear he wanted the Meek vs. Drake beef to stay on wax.
All jokes aside I don't wanna see those guys get hurt I like both of them keep it on wax but stop comparing it to other beefs…

50 Cent has also been vocal about the Meek Mill vs. Drake saga tonight, saying he would have been more ruthless than Drizzy.
Let’s not forget this whole ‘Drake vs. Meek Mill’ timeline all started when “trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers” as Meek went on a Twitter rant in which he claimed Drake doesn’t write his own material but instead uses ghostwriters. In the last two weeks, this war of words gone from social media to diss tracks and now live shows. But how far will Drake and Meek Milly take this one?
