After conquering the small screen, the big screen, the art world, the soap world, academia, the Oscars, freaks, geeks, stoners, moms, drag queens, and bros, it was only a question of when James Franco would turn those sparkling brown eyes to the music biz. Voila: Introducing Kalup and Franco, a collaboration between the actor and video artist/performance artist/drag performer Kalup Linzy who starred alongside Franco on General Hospital. Their first EP, a digital and 7" three-song release called Turn It Up, is due July 12th via the label co-founded by spinner/scribe DJ /rupture, who co-produced a pair of tracks called "Rising (Both Sides Now)" and "Turn It Up (So We Can Turn It Out)," according to Pitchfork. Thanks for encouraging him, DJ /rupture! Oh, sorry, you can't read sarcasm on the Internet? Picture us doing this.
