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

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,...

Weekly Announcements for 4/1/18

The weather is finally warming up in NYC and that means blogs will soon be arguing over what the new summer anthem is going to be. You can miss us with all that. We’ll be over here, waving. Laughing at n*ggas. Maestro Wave God Maestro has been on TV (The...
P.S. 4080 Presents: 6th Period The Podcast

P.S. 4080 Presents: 6th Period The Podcast

We have been talking about, bragging about, practicing, and procrastinating the release of our podcast, but today is finally the day. P.S. 4080 may have made it to class late, but 6th Period is in session. Join Bryan and James every week for the new podcast that will tackle a variety of topics,...
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: 2017 Rapper Fantasy Draft

It’s that time of year again. We are only a few, but long lasting days away from the start of the NFL season, which means Fantasy Football is here. Every Sunday for the next four months, my phone battery will struggle for dear life as I try to keep updated...

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

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...

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

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,...

3/17/15 In So Many Words

I haven’t posted in a while. Here’s something to make up for it. And this. Oh, and this. As if I’d let James just run this site. In other news, the Beastie Boys’ Licensed To Ill is now Diamond (sold > 10 million copies). Slow and steady low, guys. John Forte continues to do what...
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

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...

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

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...
