Tuesday is Recycling Day and I Looove Recycling…


Hootie Whooo, Who Dat and all that jazz…What is good my people!!!  Snowboarding yesterday was ILLLLLL, bust ass city but still a good day on the mountain despite the gimpy gait I now have for the nonce.  I have updated the Live Dates section so you should take a look at that to see if I’ll be in your area and If you didn’t catch the SUPER Bowl…well, you missed a great game where the better team really came out on top.  A fantastically strategized game by the coaching staff of the Saints, my hats of to this year’s World Champs.  Thanks for having a final game that doesn’t suck…Speaking of not sucking, my favorite commercial of the game was the Snickers ad in which Betty White gets put DOWN…Hilarious!!!  Check it…

Now on with my normal content jacking…As always thanks to the fine folks at Adam’s World Blog for letting me rerun their Artist of the Week feature.  This week’s Artist is My Brother’s Keeper aaaaand it just so happens to be the 200th (!!!) Artist of the Week feature, my hat’s of the Adam’s World for having a great column for so long…Dang!!!  Why did I even wear a hat today???

This feature is a momentous one. It’s the 200th Artist Of The Week here at Adam’s World. For such a milestone I wanted to get an artist who’s been down from the start. I actually managed to do one better than that – I found multiple artists who’ve been down from the start in My Brother’s Keeper. My Brother’s Keeper consists of (from L to R) Larry “Scholar” Aruwayo, Terrance “Thinker” Kelly, Dwayne “Tzo” Stewart and Levar “L-Star” McGibbon. I first met Thinker and Tzo back when I was co-hosting a radio show called In Da Mixx and they came to the studio with longtime B-Lister Conscious. That was at least five years ago, so with my Artist Of The Week feature reaching the milestone of #200, I could think of no one more appropriate to give the honor to than My Brother’s Keeper.
A hip-hop quartet with unparalleled skills on the mic and behind the boards, My Brother’s Keeper headlined as one of the main acts at Bondfire in January at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC. Their maxi single for “Master Musical Minds” / “Power Up” is available for download, and according to Scholar the group is over three quarters of the way done with a full length album, targeting a mid-summer release for it. L-Star notes the hip-hop scene has been changing as of late, and changing in a way that’s good for My Brother’s Keeper, saying “real people who are themselves are taking over.” It gets no realer than My Brother’s Keeper and this week I caught up with them to find out more about the group, including how they came together, what some of their inspirations are, and the aspects of NYC’s hip-hop scene that they feel don’t get enough recognition.  For the full article, check Adam’s World Blog…
