La Coka Nostra Returns With “Masters Of The Dark Arts”
All Hip Hop - over 4 years
(AllHipHop News) Rap collective La Coka Nostra has announced the release of a new album titled Masters of the Dark Arts. The album is the follow-up to the group’s 2009 debut release, A Brand You Can Trust and features original group members Slaine, Ill Bill, DJ Lethal and Danny Boy. Former group member is absent from the new album, something that pushed the group to work harder to produce Masters of the Dark Arts. “I think we approached Masters Of The Dark Arts with a chip on our shoulder and really took it back to our original mission of hardcore Hip-Hop amidst all the circus bullshit that is so prevalent in the current landscape of the genre,” group member Slaine told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “We are aware of the perception that somehow the group has suffered a loss we can’t recover from and in response we made an album that is the most conceptually focused and hardest hitting soundscape in the group’s history.” Masters of the Dark Arts features guest appearances from Se ...

Limp Bizkit: Tensions Easing?
Gun Shy Assassin - almost 5 years
Limp Bizkit Oh gee, that’s great. In early April, reports surfaced claiming that DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto were basically out of Limp Bizkit. Oddly, since then, we haven’t heard much about the guys’ status with the group. Now, it seems that tension has eased — at least with the drummer. The band’s guitarist Wes Borland has updated fans, saying the band will begin recording four new songs in the next two days; Otto’s sessions are scheduled first. No word yet on whether Lethal’s kissed enough ass yet to satisfy Fred Durst’s ego, but I’m sure we will know soon enough. Of course, Limp Bizkit recently revealed that they’ve been writing for their forthcoming foray into shit, which will be called Stampede Of The Disco Elephants. They’re also working on The Unquestionable Truth (Part 2), a follow-up to their flop EP of a few years ago.

Comment on DJ Lethal, John Otto Out Of Limp Bizkit? by The Real Cie
Gun Shy Assassin - almost 5 years
The more I hear about Fred Durst, the more he reminds me of Axl Rose. Total egomaniac, alienating the other band members, who are in fact what makes the band worth listening to. I saw Limp Bizkit in concert a number of years ago, and they actually put on a damn good show. But without the other band members, Limp Bizkit is just Fred Durst. And…yeah. No caption is necessary.

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of DJ Lethal
    THIRTIES
  • 2009
    Age 36
    In a 2009 interview with the Latvian newspaper Diena, Dimant professed to still feeling "Latvian" despite his many years in the USA.
    More Details Hide Details This connection stems from the fact that he was born there, and has a grandmother, other relatives, and many friends of the family there. He mentions Laima Vaikule as an important family friend who encouraged him to maintain contacts with the country of his birth. During his early years growing up in Riga, Dimant spoke mainly Russian at home and at school. He says his parents could speak Latvian, but did not want their son to learn it, so that they could have private conversations without him being able to understand. Nevertheless, Dimant can still recall several phrases in Latvian, such as "Nevajag viņam!" ('He doesn't need it!').
  • TEENAGE
  • 1990
    Age 17
    After the tour, in 1990, Everlast's first solo album, including a track featuring scratching by Dimant, was released to both critical and commercial failure. Following that, Everlast and Dimant, now known as DJ Lethal, decided to start a group, and with the addition of Everlast's high school friend Danny Boy, House of Pain was formed. The group's 1992 self-titled debut album went multi-platinum and is best known for the DJ Muggs produced hit single "Jump Around" and the DJ Lethal produced "Shamrocks and Shenanigans".
    More Details Hide Details A second album was released in 1994. In 1996, on the eve of the release of the group's third album, produced by Everlast and DJ Lethal, things began to go sour. DJ Lethal claims it started to become a hassle, and simply was not fun anymore. The day before the album came out, the group broke up. On House of Pain's final tour, Limp Bizkit, an up-and-coming band from Jacksonville, Florida was hired as a supporting act. DJ Lethal and the band became friends, and later, Limp Bizkit hired him to do some work on their recordings, eventually asking him if he wanted to join them. DJ Lethal accepted the offer, and the band became one of the most popular nu metal groups during the late 90s and early 2000s, selling over 40 million records worldwide. DJ Lethal wanted his contributions to the band recordings to be more original than typical DJs in bands at the time. "There are a couple of other rock bands that have DJs and they’re just like, a chirp scratch 'Hey, what’s going on? Let me spin around a couple of times and show off that I can spin two records.' So I definitely knew I didn’t want to be just another DJ in a rock band. I wanted to be another instrument—a part of the band, like another guitar player."
  • 1987
    Age 14
    Dimant and his parents lived in Jersey City for some time. They moved to Los Angeles in 1987, where his father got a job at a new Russian restaurant.
    More Details Hide Details His first introduction to hip-hop was in Jersey City, when his school held a talent show with several students performing a rap song, and Dimant was amazed. Once he moved to Los Angeles, he quickly became interested in hip hop culture, including break dancing and graffiti. Before learning to DJ, he started off as a beatboxer. He later practiced DJing using his friend's turntables and mixer. In the late 80s, Dimant became friends with a female rapper who, at that time, dated rapper Everlast. When Everlast was about to go on a European tour with Ice-T and Rhyme Syndicate, he mentioned that he would like to hear Dimant beatbox, and they met. Everlast was impressed by his beatboxing skills, and he invited Dimant to be his DJ on the upcoming tour. Dimant, who was only 16 at the time, decided to do so and dropped out of school.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1979
    Age 6
    In 1979, when Dimant was seven, he and his family emigrated to Italy, where they remained for a year until they obtained a visa.
    More Details Hide Details They were then allowed to go to either Toronto, Los Angeles, or New York City. His parents chose New York. There, his father performed in various Russian clubs and restaurants, mostly in Brighton Beach.
