It’s been a Minnesota minute since we last chopped it up with our pal Sluggo. This weekend Atmosphere kicks-offs their Welcome To Florida tour, so it only made sense to mix it up once again as we talk music, touring, Obama and his dislike for Larry David. If you haven’t already checked out Southsiders, you […]

The Roots – …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin I’m the biggest Roots apologist there is, but there is no defending this album. If I didn’t know any better I would think this was put out strictly for contractual reasons. Some avid fans will probably deem this another experimental release but clocking in at 33 […]

Atmosphere just dropped another track off their forthcoming Southsiders. All pre-orders of Southsiders comes with a bunch of goodies like stickers, shirts, digital downloads and its  even autographed. Plus it will ship earlier than the official street date (5-6-14). The new single is titled “Kanye West” and can be found below, as well as in […]

Thanks to everyone who has read, subscribed or supported this blog since its birth. We’ve covered a lot, from food, beer, tv, sports all the way to music. We will continue to cover all things as we head into ’14 too. Our Tuesdays with segment will return soon with special guests, including Roc Marciano, R.A. […]

  Last week marked the 20th anniversary of both Enter The 36 Chambers and Midnight Marauders. If I added up the amount of times I’ve listened to both albums, it would be significantly more than all of the albums I’ve listened to in their entirety over the past decade. Speaking of the Wu, RZA has […]

I’ll admit I was a late bloomer when it came to Atmosphere. But once I gave them a legitimate shot,  I became immersed in their music.  Ant is an accomplished producer and an intricate part of their success; whereas Slug is probably considered the groups’ Jagger. The fact remains, as an emcee, he is truly […]

Ever since I heard Lost Souls back in ’09, I was sold. As one of the early supporters for Meyhem, it’s been gratifying to see his growth as an artist. Earlier this year he laced our T.R.O.Y. blog with his Top 10 Grimiest NYC Tracks of All-Time.  This week, on Tuesdays with, I chop it up […]

On the 3rd installment of Tuesdays with, I sat down with one of the most honest, witty and talented emcee/producers/publishers in hip-hop. For more information about J-Zone visit his website He just dropped his new album Peter Pan Syndrome, in stores now, and I highly recommend you check out his book, Root For The […]

With the 2nd installment of Tuesdays with, I sat down with the king of Art Rap, Mr. Open Mike Eagle. Mike is one of the few young, refreshing and intellectual voices left in the hip-hop community. When he isn’t making “art rap” as member of Project Blowed, Thirsty Fish or Swim Team, he can be […]

With the debut launch of Tuesdays with, it made sense to start it off with my buddy Blockhead right before he hit the road.  Be sure  to check back as we’ll continue to feature Tuesdays with every other week with the help of some of your favorite artists. You’ve collaborated with an array of artists […]
