From the Tower by A L C Z R ™ #NowPlayingAtGhettoMangaHQ

I first ran across Seattle emcee ALCZR ("AL kuh ZAR") via the Soundcloud algorithm and was immediately blown away by his combination of playful delivery and serious lyricism.  Looks Zar dropped a new joint called From the Tower last month...

This video is dope: "COME OVER" by Jorja Smith (feat. Popcaan)

Don't Become The Thing You Hate The Most.


Hey fam,

In the nineties I was reading lots of superhero comics that were critiques of the genre.  That is, the characters often existed as an example of what not to do. 

My first attempt at this was the creation of the anti-hero Agent Orange.

Now THAT'S a Hip Hop CO-SIGN

Just because. Heavy bass dance like Baryshnikov..."

Rest In Peace- Remembering the mighty RICHARD CORBEN

I just found out that the prolific illustrator and cartoonist 
Richard Corben is dead.  


I have a soft spot in my heart for independent comicbook creators.  To that end, Kickstarter has been a game changer in creating an outlet for creators to fund their projects, and for fans to find them.  Check out this preview of IRON INFINITI, a new action comic on Kickstarter right now.

KickStart THIS- Ruining Christmas

I've known Stranger Comics for dark, weird, and well-made comics in the Niobe-verse, but I've not seen them go for the humor market.  They're swinging for the fences with what looks like a dark, weird, and well-made holiday comedy Ruining Christmas.


'Bout to go for my daily walk.  But first, here's new Tobe Nwigwe, featuring Black Thought and Royce Da 5'9".  You're welcome.

Stay Strong, fam
