Union releases their second video from their full length “Analogtronics”, out on Fat Beats Records. This animated video is the claymation work of Jesse Mann (@jesse_mann), who has done live projections for bands such as The Stepkids. Using only the natural elements of clay and paper, this video reflects Union’s sensibility of fusing organic elements with digital editing techniques. Enjoy the home made, organically produced laser light show.

ANTHM gives his track Siren's Song the visual treatment. I kept catching myself saying "don't go in there!!" or "don't do it!!" or "RUN!!" as I watched this. (laughs) This is off his latest release the Joy & Pain EP. Stay off the bath salts kids...
The first single off Statik Slek and Strong Arm Steady's new project Stereotype. This is FIRE...

The TxE crew, Tope, Epp, and G_Force, recently dropped a colorful video for their track Get It Back. When I say colorful, I mean fun, and when I say fun, I mean DOPE. You can catch this joint on their project We Get In True. That's all I have to say about that.

The most legendary Phife Dawg, of A Tribe Called Quest, made a stop in Tempe AZ last night to perform 45 minutes of classic Tribe joints. The entire night was pretty epic. He started the show by telling the crowd that they had to sing the Q-Tip lyrics since he wasn't at the show. That was no problem at all for the Tribe junkies that packed it in at Club Red. Phife sprinkled a little ESPN commentary in between tracks too. He congratulated LeBron on his first NBA title and spoke on Steve Nash trade rumors. If you know anything about Phife you know he is a sports fanatic. The Five Footer ended the night by rocking out to Buggin Out and giving a small talk on the meaning of Hip-Hop and the unity that it brings. Definitely a night I'll never forget...

Albuquerque New Mexico's Justin Hood just let loose this groovy little gem entitled Revival. It's not your typical type of hip hop project and I mean that in a good way. Definitely check it out.
I've been a fan of Buggs for a while now. The Ohio native is true talent. I've always thought of him as a rappers rapper. (pause) You know?.. the rapper that rappers listen to. (laughs) Buggs' camp just dropped off his brand new LP entitled The Wrath Of Zeus. He linked up with fellow Cincinnati Ohio player Dj Clockwork for the finishing touches. This one is a must get for sure.

Just got a chance to check out Noah's single Smoke & Mirrors. This joint had me reminiscing about back in the Chicago days listening to the J Davis Trio. Super dope jazzy track laced with smooth vocals. Good stuff right here.

Choo Jackson, who will be re-releasing Beer Flavored Pizza, talks about meeting his team members and building up Phresh Muney, making Beer Flavored Pizza beats off his iPhone, and how he went from linking with Mac Miller for a verse for a project to working as a solo artist with Most Dope.
Last weekend I was kickin it out in Greek Town on South Halsted, Chi. I hit the usual Philly steak joint I always hit after a night of drinking. This was like any other Chicago summer night the only difference was that there was this big ass red bone dude standing outside the door. I figured dude was tippin but NO. All this drunk ass had to say was BANG BANG to every passer by young and old... BANG BANG.
