Termanology had a little listening party for his album Politics as Usual at a trendy sneaker shop called Sole Food last night. I honestly couldn’t hear the album very well because the acoustics were so bad, but I did mingle with some of New York’s finest underground rappers. Term was..

Busta Rhymes has really surprised me with the quality of his music these days and I’m eagerly anticipating Blessed, which is supposedly tied up with sample clearance issues. Today’s Busta isn’t as goofy as he was in the old days, but he’s still more fiery on the mic than today’s..
Faith Evans’ relevance to hip-hop and R&B has been cut down to her being one of the original members of the Bad Boy family and her being married to hip-hop’s beloved icon, The Notorious B.I.G. Faith, or (ghost?)writer Aliya S. King, recognizes this and opens the book with the night..
Exile produces the shit out of this mixtape from Cali’s Blame One. His beats are nonstop retarded and Blame One keeps it moving on the mic. The only thing it’s missing is any kind of cohesion as it’s a compilation of unreleased joints. His album Days Chasing Days drops January..
DJ Muggs is sorely underrated. This mixtape is a prelude to his new project with Planet Asia, Pain Language. Muggs’ beats are incredible; they range from sinister to funky to soulful to exotic. Planet Asia brings a classic West Coast flow and seals the deal. It seems like the West..
Miss Info may be posting scans (slightly out of order) faster than Rick Ross can write a parking ticket, but Metal Lungies will have a full review of Faith Evans’ tell-all memoir soon. It’s taking longer than expected because the last book I read was Harry Potter. Every titillating gossipy..
Remember Jae Hood (aka J-Hood/Jay Hood, they never really could decide)? He was that guy who was signed to D-Block and appeared on just about every mixtape that came out for a couple of years. He eventually got frustrated that his album hadn’t come out and left D-Block. In doing..

I was pretty much already sick of this song until P-Dash breathed new life into it by ingeniously incorporating puppets. Mark my words: puppets are the next big thing in hip-hop. Place this quote and win 100 ML funpoints*: He’s like Gandhi, but better – he likes puppets. I love..
Termanology drops his debut album Politics as Usual on September 30th. In this interview, he talks about his myriad of collaborations and his experiences as an up-and-comer. He also gives the most boring answer ever to our signature question. Nice, humble guy. ML: How’s the press day going? Term: I’m..
