As Lil Wayne was released from prison and Gucci Mane was arrested again (although no charges were filed) Click Track Chris Richards examined the unfortunate trend of incarcerated rap stars. As if Kanye West needed any help staying in the news, former president George W. Bush talked about how much he disliked West's controversial statement after Hurricane Katrina, calling it the lowlight of his presidency. Then former President Bill Clinton offered words of encouragement to Weezy on the eve of his release. We dipped into the archives to dig up Richard Leiby's fabulous 1991 profile of psych rock icon Roky Erickson. In concert, Luisa Maita showed lots of spark. Interpol showed a bit. See you next week!
