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...

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

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...

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.

Suge Knight Watch: There was no gun or gunman seen in the video footage where Suge bulldozed over a dude. Clearly this would poke a Suge Knight sized hole in his argument that he was defending himself against a shooter. Drake is expected to land at the #1 spot on the charts with his new...

The only real news that you need to know is that Missy Elliott and Timbaland are working in the studio again. That just means parties are gonna get way more live this year. Oh, and 50 said what we were all thinking about the Grammys: Why should you care about Snoh Aalegra? Besides the fact...

"The Blacker The Berry" Conundrum

“The Blacker The Berry” Conundrum

I just finished my tenth listen of Kendrick Lamar’s latest single, “The Blacker The Berry,” at a volume that just blew out my left headphone (no lie). As I write these words, I press play, for the eleventh time, on the Youtube video. I have never listened to a song this much in such a short...
