EP Review: Mykki Blanco, Betty Rubble: The Initiation

It’s been a year since the release of Mykki Blanco’s breakout video, “Join My Militia (Nas Gave Me A Perm).” Since then, he’s been on both North American and European tours, covered The Village Voice and has arguably been the only artist to shake the “queer rap” tag...

Album Review: Gucci Mane, Trap House 3

Gucci Mane’s overwhelming onslaught of music of late has been a lot to keep up with, even for the most diehard of fans. 2013 has already seen five mixtapes from Big Guwop, and while this level of output is nothing new for him, his music has certainly taken a turn into slightly different territory...

Mixtape Review: Hustle Gang, G.D.O.D.

Album Review: Havoc, 13

When asked earlier this year about the concept of his upcoming album, Queensbridge MC Havoc simply replied, “This is about being me.” At the time, the response was taken as a declaration of severance from his longtime partner in music, Prodigy, who Havoc got in an ugly public spat with in 2012...

Album Review: Illogic & Blockhead, Capture The Sun

Columbus MC Illogic’s catalog is a deep one, mostly stockpiled with bars reminiscent of rap’s golden era. His lyrics easily double as poetic verses as he maneuvers his way through heavy topics—building a lasting relationship with God, being a good role model for his kids, life after marriage...

Mixtape Review: Scotty, F.A.I.T.H.

It’s become clear that there’s something new and exciting brewing down in the capital of the Peach State.
