Music Theory: Curren$y won’t stop…

Remember when stoners were thought as the unmotivated, the burnouts, and the couch lurkers. Pot smokers and laziness were synonyms at one point. I want to go back to that reality, where one marijuana cigarette turns your friend into a gross deflated blob on a love seat. Instead, now…now we...

Music Theory: The Quest For The End-All Curren$y Playlist

I’m on my David shit right now. In front of me stands a colossal undertaking that no sane man, woman, king, or child would ever attempt. A giant mocking the rational—laughing at the ant-like humans it towers over. A 17 foot tall Deebo ready to snatch my chain, my dignity,...

An Hour: Delayed Due to the MTA

An Hour: Delayed Due to the MTA

I’m not here to just rattle off complaints or to bore you with some unending rant; however, I’m going to rattle off a whole bunch of complaints and rant about something that is rage inducing, although, in light current events, trivial. I’m going to talk about the MTA and all...

An Hour: Speechless

This post may be a response to the madness of this past weekend, but it’s definitely not a response to you or any of your social media posts. So, please do not take this post personal, even though undoubtedly you will. This post is not a call for unity or...
An Hour: Rain Rain Go Away

An Hour: Rain Rain Go Away

I don’t really have much to say today. I hate sitting down forcing myself to write, especially when I’m hungry. However, sometimes just writing a stream of conscious helps conjure up a piece that was lying dormant in my head. If you have been following this series in any capacity,...
An Hour: Chill Out Bruh, Take It Easy

An Hour: Chill Out Bruh, Take It Easy

They say “death comes in threes,” but I think stress comes by the thousands, which is the real killer. Life seems to take every spare moment to make you a little bit more annoyed and occupied. One minute you are grooving to some Tity Boi, and the next you have...

ISS Is Finally Here! Help Us Celebrate Its Release

For the past six months, Bryan “Not Upstate” HAAAAHHN and I (James “Jimi” Elliott a.k.a. God’s Stepchild) have been tirelessly working on our followup to Back of the Bus. It has been a long arduous journey, filled with late nights, empty beer cans, one meal days, and bruising hangovers.  However, we are...

A Review of Bishop Nehru's 'Elevators: Act I & II'

A Review of Bishop Nehru’s ‘Elevators: Act I & II’

Bishop Nehru is someone we are rooting for at P.S. 4080. Besides being from the same area (845!) as us, Bishop demonstrates that he can make music that we’re naturally inclined to lean towards: head nod deep production with sharp flows and purposeful lyrics. And until he fully realizes his potential, he’ll most likely be...

Headed to the studio?

Headed to the studio?

Over time we’ve come to realize how much inspiration we’ve gotten from music videos, movie clips, and other forms of visual media. It’s kinda wild. So over the last few years and then some, we’ve compiled a YouTube playlist of some of our favorite videos we’ve stumbled upon. Maybe some of them will spark something...

Late Sunday for you, too? We figured. Roll onto the other side of the bed and catch up on last week’s headlines. Drake failed us on his “Lemon” verse We all know that he could do better than this. It’s Rihanna’s flow, his semi-fake introspective thoughts (“Never had a limit, never been religious/I just always...

Weekly Announcements for 3/16/18

So it happened. I’m late with this post. But let’s not lie to ourselves and say this wasn’t coming. A ton of new music dropped and when I say that I mean that a bunch of albums with way too many songs dropped. Like who really wants to listen to 34 tracks of new Iamsu!?...

There’s a lot of shit out there. Some of that shit is good and most of that shit is shit. Unfortunately the latter shit is plastered all over social media, which leads a lot of people to believe that the good shit doesn’t exist. We’re going to try and help reverse that unfortunate trend by...

An Hour: Just Nujabes

This past Sunday, my cousin came to the Island and, as is tradition, we went bar hopping. There are only like 4 bars around here, so it was more like a short hop, but we got nice and toasty. Whenever we drink together, hip hop and lists  inevitably come up; typically after he and I...

An Hour: Drunkenly Text Me When You Get Home!

As the Summer continues to heat up, I, like every other New Yorker, have begun to lose my mind. The City at this time is something special. It is a mix of humid wasteland and beautiful oasis. At one moment, you are cursing the gods and trying to figure out whether you are drenched in...
