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.

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 […]
