BRICKHEADZ | Crime Scene: Let Hope Rise & Break It Up Cypher Today!

Today BRICKHEADZ perform at Crime Scene: Let Hope Rise in Bronzeville: Thursday and Friday, August 28 and 29 at Taylor Park, 39 W. 47th St

Crime Scene, Collaboraction's theatrical reaction to the violent crime in Chicago, will continue to incite change at a hyper local level as part of the Chicago Park District's Night Out in the Parks initiative this sumer. Crime Scene couples nonfiction source material such as interviews, articles, and online comments with true Chicago crimes to raise critical questions surrounding segregation, poverty, the news media, and popular culture. Artistic Director Anthony Moseley is re-conceiving the show for the 2014 summer parks tour to include up-to-the-minute stories of Chicago violence and those working to increase peace.

Universally lauded by press, the 2013 world premier of Crime Scene was described as "gripping, "direct, visceral, youthful and winningly honest" using "elements of history, testimony, song and hip-hop oration."

Then later today 6pm-Midnight Angel Brick & Shirox Foundation presents B.I.U. Kickoff/Cypher Party Event. All Ages!

Has-Lo & Castle | Good Feelings | Official Music Video

Directed by Pat Murray for Glass Cannon

The end of summer has come, Has-Lo & Castle are ready to remind you of the glory days that the sun is now setting upon. "Good Feelings (U Must Relax)," produced by Has-Lo, features Castle vocally lampin' - questioning the most important things in life, like is it still called morning wood if you wake up after noon? It's all Hawaiian shirts, orange sorbet push-up pops, backyard pools, switchblade combs, and easy going. Re-a-lax.

Cameo by Zilla Rocca's beard courtesy of Three Dollar Pistol Music.

From the album "Live Like You're Dead"


Lil Debbie Cool w/ Nicki's "Ratchet" Anaconda Cover

Lil Debbie shares her thoughts on Nicki Minaj's Anaconda cover, and while the Cali rapper feels the artwork is "ratchet," she admits that Nicki has a "fat a**." Lil Debbie says Nicki can do whatever she wants to at this point, and delves into a story about how much she loves the Queens femcee.

The Queen D rapper says that she used to post photos of Nicki on her Facebook about five years ago, but her followers always hated on them and said that Ms. Minaj was never going to be anything. Debbie elaborates, recalling that she would post a photo of the "Bees In The Trap" rapper wearing just a simple jeans and t-shirt, and her fans would respond by calling Nicki a "tranny."

Debbie speaks more on the situation by pointing out that it's funny what the media will choose to accept and what they won't. She also speaks about how Nicki has made sex sell, but adds that the YMCMB rapper has worked hard to earn her spot.

Made in LA ft. Warren G, Social Distortion, Warpaint, and Trash Talk

Made in LA ft. Warren G, Social Distortion, Warpaint, and Trash Talk

For the final episode on our great American journey we flew to a city founded on big ideas and bigger ambitions, a city where just as many dreams are made as wither and die: Los Angeles. Tackling the LA scene was no easy task. In fact it's almost impossible to truly traverse the city's disparate musical history, but with a killer set of artists we've pieced together how certain genres evolved and thrived in Tinseltown's divisive ground.

Check out the Made In America playlist:

We met up with Warren G in Long Beach on the corner of 21st and Lewis—the scene of the "Regulate" video no less—Egyptian Lover demonstrated his 808 prowess, and joined Warpaint at home. Plus we spoke with Ariel Pink, Trash Talk, Sam Spiegel (NASA/Squeak E. Clean), Jennifer Heremma from Royal Trux/Black Bananas, and shot the shit with French transplant Soko. Phew!

Georgia Anne Muldrow | Pop Iconz | Official Music Video

The Anaconda Killer takes aim at mainstream mindlessness!
Vocals by Georgia Anne Muldrow. Produced by Chris Keys.
Directed by Chuck NLV

Georgia Says:
“We as parents have to walk a very fine line between being watchful and overprotective of what our kids are exposed to...and that job is being made even more difficult by the hyper-sexual, consumerist and vain aesthetic packed with visual associations that are intentionally targeting the pre-teen generation. I’m placing the blame on the corporate agenda that abuses the minds and souls of talented or even aspiring artists.

To represent an awareness that is willfully avoidant of self-realization is the bottom line for these influencers of consciousness; if someone’s life goals are completely external his/her mind can easily be subdued and controlled.

Art means too much to me, i ain’t having it."

About the track:
When Georgia Anne Muldrow surveys the musical landscape, she's left wanting more. It's not easy for us to watch the likes of Nicki Minaj dressed up as kalediscopic crack dealer highlighting and promoting a dead end lifestyle.

"rap about the trap 'stead of kneeeling to god
rap about their back 'stead of freedom through art
rap about their cheese in a wig from a doll...
your lips are being used black swann, like a pawn"

Produced by Chris Keys, Georgia Anne Muldrow blesses us with her views on the politrix being parlayed into a hateful power structure that is affecting the community. Please don't get it twisted, she's not interested in your riches, she's trying to tell you the children - they are listening.

Working 9-foot TR-909 drum machine goes on display

9ft-909 – Initial sound check from RAY on Vimeo.

Find out how this oversized beatbox works.

It has a big sound, and Roland’s TR-909 drum machine has certainly left a large sonic footprint on the history of electronic music, so it’s perhaps appropriate that Edinburgh-based arts collective Ray is celebrating 30 years of the instrument by creating an oversized 9-foot replica.

Six times the size of the original, this playable sculpture, designed by project leader Brendan McCarthy, has a tensile steel and aluminium frame supporting a wooden outer shell. It can be assembled and taken apart in minutes, but is said to be tough enough to take a beating.

The guts of the machine, which were assembled by Sam Healy (of psych-rock groups North Atlantic Oscillation and Sand), recreate part of the original 909’s interface using off-the-shelf Roland gear. There are a dozen PD-8 drum trigger pads fitted under the spring-loaded buttons, which feed into a TD-12 drum brain.

This in turn sends MIDI data to an Aira TR-8. When interacted with, the sculpture not only pounds out 909 sounds via the TR-8, but also relays the MIDI data to a projection system synchronised to the beat. The more complex the rhythm, the more intricate the visuals.

The result, according to Ray is: “A hands-on behemoth wired for sound and vision. An interactive monument to electronic music.”

The 9-foot 909 is appearing at this weekend’s Green Man festival, and will also be at Bestival on 4 to 7 September. You can see it in action in the video above.

After getting a preview of the packaging late last month, Rukus Board Shop and Nike SB finally reveal the design for their collaborative Dunk Low silhouette. Design-wise, the shoe is inspired by Louisiana's popular crawfish delicacy, complete with an Action Red suede upper and newsprint tablecloth paneling.

Swing by your local skate shop to see if they have this limited sneaker in stock.



Back in 1991, Michael Jordan took home his first NBA Championship when he and the Chicago Bulls defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in a game-changing Finals showdown. Jordan Brand pays tribute to that iconic moment with a special pair of the Air Jordan 6, appropriately titled the “First Championship” edition.

Aside from the crisp white base, these truly stand out for the icy sole and subtle speckled accents. Check out a few pics below, and let us know if you'll be checking for these when they drop later this year.
