Interviews

Bloodmoney, The Art of Self Destruction, Portland, Hiphop, Interview
Bloodmoney is dope as Fuck. I am a late adapter to this fact, but I now know it as fact. Bloodmoney, who is a Portland, OR based MC with decades of experience in the game has been on my radar in one form or another for some time. Yet like the asshole that I am, it took me forever to actually spend some quality time, in various states of undress, with his music. This makes me...
Zilla Rocca, No Vacation for Murder, hip hop, Philadelphia, Interview
No Vacation for Murder, the brilliant new album from Zilla Rocca, is on my short list for best albums of 2014. It is a list that is sure to change as the year unfolds but right now he is somewhere in the top half of said list. I fucking adore this album. No Vacation for Murder is everything I look for in a rap record: Dark yet banging beats Introspective rhymes...
Young Planet, New Fast Automatic, Eibol, Cidida, Interview
When I think of Brooklyn hip hop duo Young Planet for some reason I always think of cantaloupe. Yeah fucking cantaloupe! Weird right? But here is the thing.

It's actually the opposite; we love them...it's our fucked up way of showing affection because we don't know the proper way to express ourselves. And we wouldn't be wasting our time talking to somebody unless...
NOCANDO, Jimmy The Burnout, Hellfyre Club, Interview, Alpha Pup
Nocando's Jimmy the Burnout is in the early conversation for album of the year, sure it is only March but still, it is a rich and layered album that has the kind of legs to stay in the conversation through the remainder of the year. Will it? Only time will tell, at this point it is beyond anyone's control. All I can say is, at this moment it is between Jimmy the Burnout and Windows With Light by...
