In sports they are often fond of saying that “familiarity breeds contempt” and in music this is also sometimes true. Just look to any group of siblings that have ever formed a group, the tensions are often very volatile and uncertain. But under the best conditions that same kind of familiarity can also breed an [cont.]

In this life there are two things that just about anyone can do: you can either talk about it or be about it. It really is that simple. Yeah, it sounds as trite and cliched as a Nike add or a Bush Administration campaign slogan, but seldom seen are those quiet individuals who move through [cont.]

If you don’t know the Yardfather by now, that’s just a damn shame. While most of the world has been sleeping, Saigon has been putting out straight Hip-Hop classics that the streets have been eating up. Yeah, classics. Like Illmatic, Rakim and early WU-type classics. As in the type of records that will be revered, studied, debated [cont.]

Something about the kid Bill just ain’t right. As one third of Brooklyn’s Non Phixion, the world got a long, hard look at the warped mind that is Ill Bill through his searing lines on NP’s classic debut, The Future is Now. No doubt, Bill is one of those people that just don’t give a [cont.]

     While he’s teased us with appetizers such as Ill Bill Is The Future and Howie Made Me Do It, Non-Phixion’s “cult leader”, Ill Bill, steps up and delivers his first full length solo album: What’s Wrong with Bill. Backed by the demented production genius of his brother Necro, who produces the entire album), Bill takes [cont.]

Tony Toca’s dedication to Hip-Hop is immeasurable. From the earliest days of this culture’s inception, Tony Touch has always had a hand in it somehow, somewhere. Growing up in early 80′s Brooklyn he was connected to it from the outset and it didn’t take long for him to find his way to his vocation: the [cont.]

    It used to be, back in the day, that mix-tapes were nothing more than cassette compilations of choice cuts from your own record collection, designed to make up for the lack of a full album worth of bangers. Heads would just comb through records and throw all the best stuff on to one tape to [cont.]

      Necro has made a name for himself as the godfather of sickness. He is an independent impresario and a purveyor of fine smut. A pioneer of what can only be termed as “extreme music,” he has been churning out anthems of gore and violence for over five years now, combining his ill production skills with [cont.]

HHS: First off, congratulations on the new record. Where did y’all record it? H&M- Exclusively at The Mutha Fu#$in Spot on Lexington. HHS: How do Eon & Mighty Mi vibe in the studio? What is the writing and recording process like for High & Mighty? Mighty Mi- Erik writes the songs to Zhigge instrumentals and [cont.]

I’m not sure what exactly they do up there in Northern Cali, but whatever it is (especially in the Bay Area) it’s having some funkdafied results. Take the latest LP from Berkeley’s own Lyrics Born. As an original pioneer of the Solesides aesthetic, purveyor of general funkiness and gifted lyricist, LB was one half of [cont.]
