If you’ve been a fan of Los Angeles underground at all over the last 15 years, chances are you’ve heard of Gajah, either as a part of Acid Reign along with beOND, or as an alumni of the infamous Project Blowed open mic in LA. Gajah has a lengthy discography under his belt, and has added to it with another banger, Hands Of Gold Are Always Cold, that was produced by Uncommon Nasa....

I’ve known this kid Jake on the internet for a few years now. We have a lot in common besides just our skin color and our affinity for spandex and white wine. Hell, our kids are breathing the same oxygen and we share his wife as an instagram follower, we’re practically related bro. When Jacob (THAT’S CAS ONE BRO) mentioned he was dropping the video for the track I almost got...
Our Guerilla Interview with EL-P from Run the Jewels
In May, I went to a free Run the Jewels show. "Free" meaning free show, free food and free beer courtesy of FADER. I went to have a good time and get nice and drunk. I ran into Rhymefest earlier in the night (Chicago legend, also notably a collaborator with Kanye and even lesser known as an MC who kind of destroyed Eminem at Scribble Jam in the late 90's before he even released the Slim...
Chaz Kangas, Hip Hop, Rex Manning Day
Chaz Kangas used to write for us. Chaz Kangas is 5’7” and 143 lbs of sensual man meat that smells like Body Shop White Musk massage oil for your soul. Chaz Kangas is the rap equivalent of Zack Morris if he spelled his name with a Y (I’ll let you figure out where the Y goes). Not only is he locking down all the hottest lunch room poon, he can also stop time and will eventually...
Rheteric Ramirez aka  Neitzsche Cortez | Hellfyre Club
Interviews are one of my favorite parts of being a SYFFALeer. The reason: intimacy. Album reviews, video postings, column additions? None come close to the interview on the scale o'sensh. So you know that if we've interviewed a band it's because we've usually reached out and begged and stalked and pestered them until they acquiesce. It parallels our love lives.  I had a chance to chop it up...

In Tall Buildings dropping new album called Driver out on 2/17/15! PEEP THIS SONG THO BRUH!

If this song doesn't make you want to rub coconut oil all over your body and run backwards through an out of service car wash, you're an asshole.

War Ink - PAY YOUR RESPECTS

I'm just like 99% of the country.

I have family and friends who've enlisted and fought and survived and came back to tell the tales, but I'll be honest, most of my friends who've served don't say shit.

Some don't say shit about anything...

New Release Tuesday, Pink Floyd, The Endless River, album review

New Release Tuesday | Pink Floyd | The Endless River

I promise you, anytime we set adrift on a New Release Tuesday we go into it with the best of intentions. We think long and hard about choosing an album the majority of us will like because we don't like shitting on a band just to shit on a band.
