What’s good, Bay Area family? You’re probably already up on this, but coming up on Monday, September 1st is the region’s annual Hiero Day, featuring an outstanding lineup of hip-hop including (but not limited to) Seattle’s own Sol and The Bar (well, half of The Bar, anyway). Best of all, it’s FREE! #KeepHieroDayFree
A million and one MCs in the underground, but few have lyrical ability like Savant. You’ve probably never heard of this Chicagoan who now hustles hard in both music and matriculation in Arizona. “Make Your Move” is his first look on the video tip. Get familiar.
#OutOfTownMovement. Viewed for the first time at Out For Stardom. I don’t know who Azealia Banks is (that’s either because her thing is brand spankin’ new or because I am not nearly as cool as I think I am), but this track caught my ear. She raps, she sings, she smiles real cute, and she’s from Harlem, USA. The 212 is where I lay my head. The 206 is where I’m from. Something about this joint feels so right. Hence the post.
