An Hour: You Took Too Long

An Hour: You Took Too Long

Since it has been raining so much recently, I have been staying indoors and chilling out. Thanks to Mother Nature’s continued dominance in the art of water fights, my music listening time has increased exponentially, which gives me more time to muse over the wonders or lack thereof in the industry at large. While I do...
An Hour: Back 2 Back

An Hour: Back 2 Back

So, some people like to ring in their birthdays with a nice home cooked breakfast, surrounded by the people they love. Others head straight to work, anxious for the raucous good times promised after they clock out. Even saner people still, wait to until the weekend to unleash all the primal debauchery that one needs...
An Hour: It's Been A Minute Tho

An Hour: It’s Been A Minute Tho

Ay yo, it’s been a solid minute. No excuses or anything, but I have been slacking. You know how life does: you think you have all the time in the world, then boom, two and a half years flies by and you have not posted once on your blog. Time is such a fickle mistress....
ISS Is Finally Here! Help Us Celebrate Its Release

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 so proud to announce that ISS (‘In...
Hella Late To The Party Vol. VII: Day  Late

Hella Late To The Party Vol. VII: Day Late

Sometimes, I sit here and just think to myself, “how the hell is Big Sean still a thing?” I know, I have spoken out against the Sean “Don” previously, along with the fact that he probably doesn’t give a fuck about me or anything I do, but hear me out. This is not a diss...
Hella Late To The Party Vol. VI: Way Too Hot Out Here

Hella Late To The Party Vol. VI: Way Too Hot Out Here

So as of the writing of this post it is 7:30 in the evening and roughly 1,738 degrees Fahrenheit, give or take a few degrees. I slowly coming to the realization that living in the Northeast or Midwest forces you into an eternal struggle with Mother Nature. It’s like the entire region just didn’t eat...

Hella Late To The Party Vol. 5: The Hella Late Edition

Its been a minute fam. The last post we wrote was over two months ago, shame, shame, shame. That’s not how things are supposed to go, we have to do better in the future. However, we’re here now and we are excited to share some new music and thoughts with you on our beautifully redesigned...

Spring Forward Into The New Season With ‘Spring Fling’ Beat-Tape

If you are reading this sentence, it means you have noticed that P.S. 4080 has had a nice face-lift. From the beginning, it has been Bryan and my mission to find a great web designer to bring our vision to you in the sleekest way possible; we have succeeded. Things are looking quite nice around...
Curren$y and I

Curren$y and I

I have a penchant for describing things in extreme terms. “This Midnight Berry Skittle doesn’t just taste pretty good, it is in fact the best variety of Skittles on the market.” Or, “No, no, no, Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but I promise you, he is totally Hitler and possibly sent from the future...
Can Earl Come Out To Play?

Can Earl Come Out To Play?

2011 was a decent year, as far as years I barely remember go, filled with a number of firsts in my life: my first time living in an independent apartment; my first time spending an entire summer away from New York; my first time ever hearing the names Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean,...
Hella Late To The Party: V

Hella Late To The Party: V

When I was in Middle School this was one of my favorite songs; I was an Suburban emo, rock fiend. For three years, unless the rapper’s name was Jay-Z or Nas, you could not convince me that he or she was worth my time. Blink-182 were gods,  Taking Back Sunday were dons, and Motion City...
Great Expectations: Kendrick Just Dropped Sum Sh*t

Great Expectations: Kendrick Just Dropped Sum Sh*t

This is not a review. Please remember to keep this one fact present in the front of your mind, as you continue to read what will surely be a pretty substantial diatribe. I repeat, this is not a review. I’ve never been one to connect all the (K) dots in music quickly, which makes me...
