Thank you, Huffington Post!

Is Choke’s “40-Year-Old Vegan” on it’s way to becoming a vegan viral video? HuffPost certainly gave it a boost with their loving blurb…

We love you, too, Huff Post!

Ultra Magnus & DJ SLAM! interview

Ultra Magnus & DJ SLAM! dropped the video for first single “HELL-O-L” from their upcoming album on Hand’Solo Records recently, and it’s been getting some love… It also resulted in this slightly strange interview with Onya Ganja of Stoner Girl’s Guide. The duo talk cannabis, feminism, and a bit about hip hop. But you probably already guessed that from the title of their blog. Also, I’ve met SLAM!’s mom once; I can attest, she is pretty damn cool.

Weekend at Burgies – Episode 5

Yeah, the weekend is almost over, but you shouldn’t deny yourself the pleasure of the fifth episode of Weekend at Burgie’s just because of my tardiness. Ghettosocks stops by to talk David Lynch, bizarre 80s toys and rap, of course, while Burg provides his thoughts on October, Walking Dead, and guest lists. Exciting any time of the week!

New $5 Rap Show footage!

As a new $5 Rap Show is fast approaching (this Friday!), new footage from the last two shows – the album release parties for Timbuktu and Chokeules, respectively – has been posted to the $5 Rap Show YouTube page. And of course, there’s also plenty of footage from previous shows, too!

Here’s a couple of the new videos:

The rest of Swamp Thing (Chokeules and Savilion) joined Timbuktu on stage to perform “Raw Minded” from their sophomore group album, Fire Dogs, for Tim’s The Legend of Howard Huge release party on April 17, 2014…

Ultra Magnus & DJ SLAM! were much loved after impressive performances on both release party nights, but this footage is their performance of “Bill Clinton” (off their upcoming album) from their party-closing set at Choke’s release party for Stay Up on July 11, 2014…
