I always wanted to type that. New MONEYDVNCE remix to one of the most referenced songs in Killa‘s catalog. He said:

The sound of Killa being lensed by John Carpenter whilst Rowdy Roddy Piper slapboxed cyborgs in 1980′s urban dystopia.

Right.

Okay now click here for the very special short movie, directed by our own Gila Monsta, starring Cam.

Word has it that MONEYDVNCE will not only be appearing on a near future ep. of Fresh Out The Box, but will also be making his live debut in NYC later this month.

Don’t make MuMMz angry. The god might bring that TRENCH out of the RAP (or bring that ____ out the TRENCH…maaan, the stories heads would never tell you). Straight from the most dimly-lit block in Harlem…yellow tape and all. EP and assorted other things coming soon on Live From The Kitchen/PTP Recordings.

NIGHTTIME VULTURES

Steady Bloggin’ and PTP presented this a few warm months back, live on Fresh Out The Box. It’s October and it is still warm outside (80-something degrees warm). That means you can still fire up the yacht, grab up the plushest of lightweight robing, a bottle of the finest brown water, a bag of jet fuel, and bump this shit while you wait for the upcoming Third Looks and TechSpec mixes by us.

“Your Bitch Like Alotta Sex”

Mummz_Jooks_Jackals_ART
Mummz is not the easiest artist to peg under a single category banner, unless you’re using spread-shot speak like “really real” or “G shit.” He’s like a mix of The Wire‘s Omar and Brother Mouzone in that he may enter or exit through your sixth story window, black-down in hood combat ensemble (durag included), or just casually ring your front doorbell with specks on, holding a rolled up newspaper. Either way, just know that a lot of strategy was put into this special visitation and that the god will never be short of a wild story to tell. Don’t become the next subject to be set to music, as it may just result in something as potent as this dense slice of trench rap over some murky funk provided by Eyes And Teeth. We will be “ooooh’ing” and “ahh’ing” at your misfortune while you are just sittin’ all fucked up. This isn’t your party soundtrack…this is the soundtrack of your party getting violently ran through and yellow-taped.

FULLY REALIZE!

Cities Aviv ain’t about the sucker shit (trust me, I’ve spent many hours with the god). This is the moment during which all of his past punk rock and Hypnotize Minds mosh pit experiences morph into an unrelenting motivational anthem. Some glitch-boogie-punk-funk fist pump music.

CitiesCome To Life will drop on January 28 on Young One Records. If you’re in NYC this Friday, check the guy out at 285 Kent alongside Factory Floor, Yvette, and DJ Kris DFA.

I Brought Your Tacos

Rome and Goodwin drop off the next chapter to a twisted tale of sex, lies, and murder (not necessarily in said order). Always keep a grooming kit, a change of clothes, and a back-up plan. Beautiful Pimp II on the way.

Loaded

Thugga and Longway throw a house party and our guy Goodwin was there to assign a lens to some very key moments of savagery. Gritty and well-shot has been a ledge many have been short of making when it comes to street-themed rap videos, thankfully, that is not at all the case here (and I could not think of two artists who more need and deserve such a proper visual treatment).

We’re also glad that Goodwin got out slug-free.

Know What’s Goooooood

Gavin aka Cities Aviv is exactly what happens when hardcore punk and noise elements taint the Memphis rap water supply. Okay, it ain’t the only way that can happen, but fam has found a way to present a hybrid sound while missing all pretentious musings usually found in such exercises (and dorm rooms).

(…ahem Anticon ahem practically any Noise “artist”)

Son’s music is definitely not for everyone (with the self-assigned genre of “outsider art”…why would it be?), but he is certainly a stand-out example in the realm of “not giving a fuck and remaining cool while at it” (especially live, where the aggression can really take flight and shit can get kicked into the crowd). Looking forward to Come To Life, coming soon on Young One Records.

The Cause & Effect

Rome Fortune and Goodwin crafted the most sense-pleasing, “warm-weather appropriate” video this year. After leaving The W in NYC, the duo took things out West to get sun-drenched in LA and, as expect, we see the umbrella-ornamented-drinking-glass vibe continue, but then the “Safety” happens: a track produced by HPG‘s own Dun Deal on which it seems like he was remixing “Get The Guap” while watching Misery. Things get a lil twisted in the storyboard department as well.

Rome hasn’t slowed a bit since the release of Beautiful Pimp (quite the contrary, actually) and now we have multiple projects on the calendar for which to impatiently wait.
