An Hour: Speechless

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...
An Hour: Just Nujabes

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;...
An Hour: Drunkenly Text Me When You Get Home!

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...
An Hour: An Ode 2 Tity Boi

An Hour: An Ode 2 Tity Boi

For the past week and some change, I have avoided a serious responsibility. I’m actually disgusted with myself; I’ve shattered all my mirrors (including the front facing camera on my phone) because I cannot, in good conscious, look at myself. Pretty Girls Like Trap has been out since June 16th, and...
An Hour: Walking Home In Torrential

An Hour: Walking Home In Torrential

There is something so specially lame about being caught in the rain. I’m not talking about a little drizzle or the “sun showers” that every kid loves to run through in the summer; I’m talking about that real shit—that moment when the Mother Earth is just tired of all her...
An Hour: Chillin

An Hour: Chillin

Sometime on Sunday, my brain melted. Either while I was mindlessly staring out the Ferry window or fixated on my computer screen in my room, my noodle said toodles and dipped. At this moment, somewhere in the world my liquefied grey matter rests in a puddle, fighting to avoid its...
An Hour: Leftover Ziti

An Hour: Leftover Ziti

I have a serious problem with finishing things. I can admit it, it’s a sore subject for me. Whether it’s a video game, book, or show, I will start off near obsessed and then inevitably, put it down. I do not know why I’m this way—this aspect of myself has...
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...
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...

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...

Hella Late To The Party Vol. Four

We only took a week off, but it feels like we haven’t seen each other a month. It’s your favorite day of the week, you know which one, stop trying to be bashful: Hella Late To The Party day. Young Hahn and myself love sharing new music with all of you, we hope you love experimenting and...

Live Through 700 NY Winters And The 701st Will Still Suck

Last week, like the week before it and the week before that, it snowed in New York. Out of all of the types of precipitation, snow is the absolute worst. Nature’s dandruff serves one purpose and one purpose only: ruining your fucking day. If you are lucky enough to live in a warmer region, safe...

Guys, Snoop Dogg is still high. Just take a look at the cover of his upcoming 13th album, Bush. It will be executive produced by Pharrell and will probably get you contact high if you buy the physical version. Finally, the next and last Wu-Tang Clan album has an update. It will be up for...

Flamethrowers and Fronto: Kanye Meet Wati

I have listened to a lot of music man. My addiction has gotten so severe that I can, with a fair amount of certainty, predict what a new song will be about, how it sounds, who made it, and who the artist listened to on the bus to school within the first thirty-odd seconds of...

The Night The Social Experiment Transformed S.O.Bs

If you are a New York hip hop or music concert goer, chances are one of your many excursions have landed you in SOBs’ medium sized venue. Since I fall into one of the two previously listed categories, I have spent my fair share of nights in blissful cramped heaven watching performers excite the onlookers...

Drake is making waves with every single track of If You’re Reading This being on the Billboard charts. But just wait until the next big thing in Hip-Hop is to release two surprise albums within a week or some short period of time. While people are still getting over the first surprise album, some artist...

Tried Extra Extra Extra Hard To Like The Big Sean Album

Doing an album review is a labor of love. When you sit down to write your treatise on so-and-so artist’s creatively titled album, you should be aware of a few things: reviews are practically obsolete because this thing called “the Internet” spreads music faster and further than your words can reach; everyone has an opinion and people...

2/21/15 In So Many Words

First, thank you to everyone who downloaded, listened, and/or shared our first compilation tape of exclusive music. And double thank you if you came to our release show. That shit was ultra lit. I don’t use that word lightly. All Nat and the live performers (Scienze, JohnNY U, SHIRT, Lurkavelli, YL, Starker, MadKem) killed their...

Premiere: Back Of The Bus Compilation Tape

All of our “listening session focus groups,” pleas with managers, back and forth with producers, and hours of not working our day jobs to reply to emails have paid off. Our first compilation tape of the finest exclusive music from around the country is here. We don’t claim that these artists are the best. The...

Hella Late To The Party III: Release Party Edition

Bryan and I can not express our excitement about tomorrow in words, we have been giddy like school girls ever since Sunday. On Wednesday, February 19, we are hosting our first ever Release Party at the Leftfield in Manhattan for our compilation mixtape: Back of the Bus. If you follow either one of us on any...

Something something Drake blah blah

Dear World, Last week, on Thursday February 12, Drake a/k/a 6 God a/k/a Mr. Steal Your Girl a/k/a Woe Lord a/k/a Let Me Hold That Flow real quick, dropped a surprise “Mixtape.” If you are reading this, you probably already heard If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and haven’t listened to anything else all weekend....
