Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, November 18, 2009...
- Flava Flav (world's greatest hype man) owes around $183,000 in back taxes. I wonder how much he could get for selling his viking hat?
- Jay-Z canceled the rest of his U.S. tour because of "unforeseen scheduling conflicts." What's unforeseen when you plan out a tour months in advance? I guess he forgot that his last dates were close to Thanksgiving?
- The Strokes Is This It beat out Kid A for album of the 00's? Since it's an NME list I'm surprised it wasn't a Kings of Leon record.
