Now Playing: "Runaway Slave" by Pep Love f/Otayo Dub
My dude Elihu blessed me with a youTube link to Runaway Slave, off Pep Love's new album Rigmarole. Obviously, any member of the mighty Hieroglyphics crew is gonna be worth checking out, but this track is a back breaker...

Album Review: "Thrift Store Jesus" by Heath McNease
Worship crooner and bandcamp rap champion Heath McNease dropped his album Thrift Store Jesus on the feverishly-waiting internets last month, but I was too busy to notice. Because being a Christian makes you persistent and stuff, he sent me another email today, so I checked it out. After all, I'm STILL bumping that Nintendo Thumb Mixtape, and it was free. Hell, the guy split the bill to pay me to draw that Wed, White & Wu artwork... the least I could do was check out his new plate, right? You can listen to it free below, and I'll let you know what
your opinion should be I thought of it...

Cute MF DOOM Wallpaper anyone? YES PLEASE!
Yeah, so I was messing around with Illustrator at my job, and created this fresh-to-death portrait of the world's greatest rapping supervillain, the mighty MF DOOM (all caps, please). I was so hypnotized by his steely digital gaze that I decided I wouldn't be happy until I created an MF DOOM Wallpaper for the people...

Comicbook World #63: Young Stars Shoot Water Bullets
While you were reading Facebook posts about what your friends had for dinner, I learned that not only did scientists discover a star shooting out superheated water at speeds 80 times faster than machine gun bullets, but they postulate that ALL "young stars" spray these liquid bullets! There's a rap lyric in there somewhere...

(p)REVIEW- "CLOSING DOORS and Other City Yarns" by Mark Rudolph
Tired of reading barely-legible tales about overly-muscled dudes, weird aliens and mutant vigilantes locked in a never- ending series of nigh-meaningless conflicts? Yeah, me neither... but peep this preview of Mark Rudolph's hella-tight anthology paperback Closing Doors and Other City Yarns for a refreshing and much-needed change of pace anyways. You'll dig it.

IN STORES NOW- "SAGA #1" by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples
FACT: If you have a picture of a woman breast-feeding with one hand, holding a weapon in the other hand on the cover of your comic, you WILL receive a shout on GhettoManga. Yeah, I drew a similar image in the past (and I'll do it again...), but my hat's off to your girl Fiona Staples who bodied it on the cover to her new sci-fi/ fantasy debut Saga #1 (Brian K Vaughan's writing doesn't suck either). Peep this preview that picks up where the previous one I posted left off...

"Sons o' bitches won't stop til the economy crash. It's gettin' a little vicious to make a little cash..." -King Ra
Jersey emcee King Ra expresses the resentment that many of us are feeling toward corporate greed in his single I Gotta Get Paid. Whether you're down with the lefty populism of the Occupy Wallstreet cats or not, you've probably felt the same way at some point...
