Grayskul gets Bloody on 9/11

Grayskul's latest full length "Bloody Radio" is coming on Rhymesayers on 9/11. Apropos because this record is a wake up call and maybe even a life changer. Check out the first single "Dope." Personally I just dig Onry because he wears skeleton gloves on stage...

Aesop Rock's new single "Coffee"

Aesop Rock's got a new album comin' out soon called "None Shall Pass." Everybody's already heard the single "none shall pass" but here is another track just to whet yer appetite for the full length due out in the fall. I still enjoy his work on Labor Days the most but no one can deny that along with EL-P, Slug, Madlib & MF Doom, Aes Rizzle is THE shining star of what remains of indy/underground hip hop.

Brother Reade's latest offering may be their very best yet! chemistry supersaturates the grooves of Rap Music. "Back to the beginning/ rap's first inning/ penny on the needle with the turnstile spinning," Jimmy Jamz flows on the album's explosive opener "Let's Go." Meanwhile Bobby Evans combines rib-rattling snare hits and bass kicks, flying in a sonic hook that sounds like a spaceman's thermos boiling over on the sun.

check out the single"Let's Go"

New Balance City Series 480

New Balance is releasing the city series 480 in august. Tier 1 accounts only so I'm gonna have to search to find these. I love my 480 comic series so I'm really lookin' forward to this one. Saw this on hypebeast and on the new balance-blog

New Balance 990 limited edition

Just picked up a limited edition black/purple New Balance 990. This is said to be a tribute to Japanese console games.
Note the black patent leather, perforated purple suede and embroidered rainbow logo on the heel and rainbow "N" on the tongue. Comes with white and multicolor laces, a welcome change considering how busy the colors are elsewhere.
In the technology department the shoe features a 3/4-length ABZORB EX sole (hence “990EX”) for shock absorption. ABZORB EX is the combination of NB’s premium ABZORB foam material and an outside air bubble.
These shoes are soooo dope in person! Really vibrant purple suede and the black patent leather definitely makes the shoe pop!
