Welp, The concert has been cancelled. My man Parrish at SOBs hit me up to let me know about this benefit they are having tonight. If you are in NYC, you really should check it out. Also, let Knobbz know if Styles does his ‘Kill The ******’ Song. Details are..

Who would have thought the giant bearded rapper I randomly met at Fat Beats would have such an amazing musical output. His flow is one of a kind and his beat selection is otherworldly. “The Abduction” may be his best song yet. 6th Sense’s beat is from another dimension. Get..
From what I’ve heard of 100 Proof (The Hangover), the album has its hits (“Do It 2 Death”) and misses (“So Close, So Far” and “Fake Love”), but I’m anxious to hear how it sounds as a whole. “Life Is Short” goes in the hits pile for its winning combo..
