Tuesday is Recycling Day and I Loooove Recycling!!!


Yoooo!!!  I have to shuffle off to Buffalo real soon so I just wanted to hit you with the Artist of the Week and be out…This week’s feature is none other than NYC underground favorite BS!!!  Hell Yes it’s BS!!!  Peep Game…

Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing BS about BS. A part of NYC’s next generation of up and coming emcees, BS has rocked the mic with a litany of former Artists Of The Week (aka B-Listers, for the uninitiated), including Chaz Kangas, Jesse Abraham, and Premonition. In fact, the first time I saw him perform it was with a group of artists I’d known for a while, so it was almost as though he’d arrived on the scene already co-signed. To BS’s credit, he’s never taken advantage of that feeling and continues to work his ass off to get heard. This week I caught up with BS to find out more about the man behind the initials, including what those initials stand for, where you’ll never find him, and why instead of sneaking into shows he now has to sneak out of them.  For Full Article, Check Adam’s World Blog… (As always thanks for the content jack!!!)

Ruff Mix Monday…on Tuesday


Whuttup!!!  Alot of projects bubbling in the halodoesntsuck labs, will be in Buffalo the first part of the week to teach the yungins about the rap, self esteem and all that jazz…Holler!!!  This week’s Ruff Mix is a video I made for a HILARIOUS track off the Party Fun Action Committee album ‘Let’s Get Serious’.  If you are scratching your head like, “What the dunk is this cat talking about??? Jive Ass Mofo…” then check the link to learn more…

Party Fun Action Committee

The short of it is; this project was a joke project produced by Blockhead and it just happend to get put out by Def Jux back at the start of the label…See!  Rap can have a sense of humor too…Check the video and get at me about your sore abs from laughing.

For good measure here is another track from the album as well…Atoms Family anyone???  Plus the kid with the hoodie in the picture, dead up, could have been me 10 years ago…

Finally for all you Bostonites…

Tuesday is Recycling Day and I Loooove Recycling!!!


PUNK ROCK!!!! Was feeling a bit down today doing my Morning Show on WPKN, finished strong with a punk rock set of Rancid, NOFX, Op Ivy, Bad Religion and am feeling much better…something about spring and punk rock are like Paddington and Marmalade, they just go together.  So before I get into the Artist of the Week, peep this video of my favorite Bad Religion song of all time…American Jesus (as me for what the song means sometime…Holler!)

And for good measure…Blatz…

OK, Ok, ok…now that you have been all amped up from those two videos, let’s get into the Artist of the Week, Premonition!!!

The first time I heard Premonition was the remix to “Double Time” that was on the Spills & Jesse Abraham album Alphabutter. The song featured half a dozen of NY’s finest and when Premonition’s verse came on my initial reaction was “damn, who’s the dude with the deep-ass voice of God?” Then I started listening to his lyrics and thought “damn, the voice of God has some serious skills!” Over the next few months I’d run into Premonition at a number of shows and find that in addition to being able to shine on a track he can also rock a mic live. A truly passionate emcee, this week I caught up with Premonition to find out more about that passion, who’s going to end up on his future tour bus, and his strange connection with comedian Judah Freidlander.  For Full Article click the link to Adam’s World Blog HERE…

Now, onward and upward with this week’s edition of Artist of the Week, so thoughtfully provided by the good folks over at Adam’s World Blog…This week features none other thaaaaannnn, Ukulele playing rapper Jon Braman…aaawwww snap!!!

A couple months ago I was at an event in the city when a friend of a friend started telling me about Jon Braman. Now, bear in mind, I hear a lot of people telling me about a lot of artists, so it takes something really interesting to get my attention. As soon as she said Braman was a rapper who played the ukulele, getting my attention was no longer an issue. After what seemed like dozens of missed opportunities to check out Braman’s work, his album, Climatastrophunk, finally arrived in my mailbox. Really interested in knowing if combining the ukulele and hip-hop could work, I put it on. It was an oddly perfect marriage, at least with Braman at the helm. His lyrics are meaningful, and at times downright beautiful, and his vibe matches those qualities perfectly. Braman describes some of the inspiration behind his music, saying “being able to sing out your fears as well as your hopes and dreams is a pretty good feeling.” This week I caught up with Jon Braman to find out more about the man, his music, and what exactly a Climatastrophunk is.
