Photos by Helen Pearson. The crowd at the G-Side show on March 27, 2011 in New York City looked like an NYU creative writing class. Pasty white hipsters and tiny Asian girls packed into a basement in the East Village to watch ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova perform country..

Two new mixtapes out of Huntsville, Alabama today, Untamed Ent.’s Still Solid and the PRGz’ Hood Headlinaz 3. Out of all 33 tracks, my favorite is “Rocket City.” The group raps about escaping beyond the clouds over a euphoric combination of synths and hi-hats. It’s great except for the lazy..
Posted for the Wii shout out. Let us not forget the legendary Slim Thug line, “Blowin’ on that endo, GameCube Nintendo.” You know Thugga was down with Wind Waker.
Our dude Alex at Move Forward Music let us know of a few shows he’s working in NYC. Holler @metallungies on twitter, and we might even hook you up with a pair of tickets. Young Dro/ Killer Mike / Pac Div / Dee 1 Monday April 25th at SOB’s. Big K.R.I.T. /Freddie..
Funkmaster Flex went on Hot 97 two weeks ago to counter “rumors” (a police report) that his coworker Mister Cee was caught receiving oral sex from a man in the West Village (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Then, Flex implied that two employees from rival station Power 105.1..

While watching the ongoing Coachella stream this weekend I came across a dope promo video for the festival that feature Hip Hop head & Funkateer Dave 1 (1/2 of Chromeo), and Creative legend Eric Haze (I pray own an album with his art work). They both share candid reflections on..
Bizarre was smart to grab a Yelawolf verse for his album about a year ago. Ironically, it would probably be harder for Bizarre now that Yela is under the Shady umbrella. I mainly remember Bizarre as the guy who would ruin Shady Records posse cuts with painfully slow gross-out rhymes..
During a lot of Terror Squad sessions, having an entourage led to a whole other pile of things. I remember one of the dudes in Joe’s crew called one girl, and she had to suck off like 20 to 25 people. [Laughs.] We’re in Sony [Studios], and you see a..
DROP THE BOMB. ML Homie Alex slipped me this joint from a promising indie duo The Black Sunn & 810 called United Division. The duo raps about the so called “unity” amongst the DMV, that seems to exclude Bmore, where the duo hails from. The hook sounds almost like an..
