It was the summer of 1996. Hip-Hop was a mess. We were slowly losing the sound of classic hip-hop music at this time. Stakes were high. The east coast / west coast feud had reached the boiling point, with Death Row Records and Bad Boy Entertainment at the center of it. Biggie and Tupac were [cont.]

We used to see this happen every year, back when we ran indie rap retail – a bunch of labels all pick the same day for a bunch of quality releases, and none of them care to change it, forcing the consumer to start making choices, rather than multiple purchases. Today is a packed street [cont.]

UPDATE: We have picked a winner. Candidates were selected at random, then each transported to a magical island, where each was assigned a number, and then put through a series of life threatening tests, time travel, alternate realities, and the limited use of swear words, including only “damn”, “son of a bitch”, and “sodding”.

Seems like everyone moved their release dates around to make sure they weren’t competing with a little old artist named B.o.B. and his Atlantic Records / Grand Hustle debut, The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Atlantic’s direct deal preorder packages are done with, so let’s see where the best place to cop this album is…… Itunes [cont.]

One thing surrounding the controversial, untimely, and tragic death of Guru is the fate of his yet-to-be released recordings. We all know that Guru has been recording exclusively on 7*Grand Recordings over the last few years with Solar. What this means, sadly, is that the recordings under the label that remain unfinished or in the [cont.]

This just in, Little Brother’s official webstore, 5th & Fashion, is offering Left Back with a limited edition Left Back t-shirt in a package deal for $30. Maybe we were late on this, maybe it was just announced. Either way, support your favorite artists, or don’t be mad when they disappear.
