I've heard it said that Grieves is "a little too emo". What the fuck does that even mean? Are we still pretending we don't have feelings? I musta missed the memo. For me, part of becoming the man I should be means being able to understand how I'm feeling, why I'm feeling it, and how to deal with it (rather than getting hammered and breaking some Ikea furniture). Call me gay. Maybe you didn't get the memo about that....shit is played out. One thing I have always respected about Grieves is that he puts it all out there. That takes real courage. It helps that he is talented, and lyrical. Also, this dude puts on a show. So, next time you get a chance to see him perform, do it. Years ago, we shared a conversation (at a Prof show...in Mill Creek. Weird.) We spoke of our love for whisky, particularly the Rye variety, and blonde women from Utah (or Sweden. Take your pick.)

Now go file your TPS reports. Make sure you use the new cover sheet.
Soooo, I guess it's 2014 now. I did not make a list of resolutions. That would have interfered with my drinking. However, I would like to start posting Hip Hop related things regularly again. Let's start there.
The homies over at SubSoniq Radio just dropped a fresh episode with a FILTHY playlist. Definitely worth checking out. Just click HERE. Download it, stream it, or get the Stitcher Radio app for your phone and subscribe there. If you have listened before, you will recognize a familiar voice that has been absent for quite some time. Gangsta Mittens must have decided to take a break from drinking Mojitos and complaining about her cat's unruly behavior to step up to the mic. As usual, her commentary and track picks are always enjoyable. If you haven't listened before, start. Stay tuned until the end for some outtakes, including a perfect RZA impression by K-Murdock.
Ok. Gotta go sign up for yoga or some shit. It's 2014. I should do something.
If you got anything for us, hit us up here. Whether it's some shit to sample, a request, or whatever, just get at us. We're not responsible for any broken links or other people's mistakes. We just do what we do, so if you find anything offensive: fuck. off. Oh yeah, here's the obligatory "support the artist" message - hey, do what they say, not what they do! One.
