Finally some footage from the FSD x Go ILL Radio Showcase (sponsored by PHLI, Leaders, Enstrumental, Sir & Madame, Hustle Simmons & Elephilms) in Austin, TX surfaces.  Hopefully some additional footage will be on the way soon (where you at Elephilms?  Ha!)

Anyhoo, Dave Coresh had a dope midday set at Light Bar, that included a bullhorn a megaphone and some grade A bars.  If you haven’t already been paying attention to Dave, you might want to start now.

Last week, Wiz K hit the Chi to preview his album Rolling Papers (in stores now!) as well as do radio and print promo.  The good folks at Elephilms and Smash Brothers documented Wiz’s stay in the Chi and captured it all on film.  Er..or digitally.

Bo shows another side and keeps it positive with his latest visual. I’m not mad at this at all.


Mic Terror – Dickey Simpkins

Ruh roh. Picking a “fight” with Mic isn’t the smart thing to do. My proof? This joint, which Mr. Terror liberated via Twitter himself.

I’m not too familiar with Magg Myle or how this all started but you can catch his track, “Terrorvision”,  here.

Project Mayhem – Legends of the Fall

| March 29, 2011 | 7 Comments

I have some good news for Project Mayhem diehards such as myself: Middle America finally drops on April 19th.  It’s been a long coming.  The Mayhem Machine project dropped all the way back in October 0f ’09, so we’ve had to wait for quite a while on a new full length.  I’ve heard mumblings that Middle America has stepped it up a notch and will even be better – featuring production from Tony Baines, Tye Hill and Tree.  Look for the official tracklist to drop in the coming days.
