Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, December 9, 2009...
- So Lenny Kravitz says he won't replace Steven Tyler in Aerosmith because he's "a family friend." I thought it was because they didn't have three albums worth of material about Lisa Bonet...
Avid music lover, blogger and funny-ass motherlover Aziz Ansari is coming out with a hip-hop mixtape produced by TV On The Radio's David Sitek.
- Finally: Hip-hop wonder boys Outkast plan to come out with a new album. (If you support each members' solo stuff, of course.)
