Tuesday, June 17, 2014 by | No Comments | Category: Music, Rap


In preparation for his anticipated project, Pixburgh, Devin Miles drops off a brand new record, “Hella Late” produced by Christo. I’ve heard the two have been locked in, creating some crazy joints so here’s a little taste of what’s to come. The city of Pittsburgh just keeps producing talent and I’m all ears.

Last night, Central Florida MC, Will Brennan releases part one of his three part EP series, with the first titled, Laws of Motion. This EP is entirely produced by DJ Burn One and features three of Atlanta’s dopest artists on the rise as well, Miloh Smith, SL Jones (by way of Arkansas), and Scotty ATL. Look for the other two EP’s coming soon, but for now enjoy this.

Stated frankly, the word inspire means to make someone want to do something, it is a word you will hear from the mouths of many a creative, simply because it is the foundation for creation. Inspiration can come from any place, be it a traumatic experience, the gaze of a loved one or those awesome tacos you had for lunch. Keep in mind, there isn’t always a need to welcome such drastic taco filled measures in search of inspiration, some of us are lucky enough to be within close proximity to factories of inspiration; communities of brilliant creative minds that populate all facets of fine art from painting and photography to literature, filmmaking, music and dance. However, what one wouldn’t expect is that this epicenter for inspiration moves through a group of painters, illustrators and tattoo artists that just opened up a new location in what is becoming one of Atlanta’s go-to locations for young and fresh creative energy.

“Inspire your City” is the credo that Atlanta based tattoo shop City of Ink lives by; their dripping star logo was birthed from the idea that “we are all stars in this universe but only a chosen few stars inspire others. Those chosen few must drip down on the masses and inspire them through ART.” With Old 4th Ward increasing it’s stature as a go-to location for creative’s in the city, Edgewood Avenue serves as the perfect spot to continue spreading this message. On a weekly basis, Edgewood Ave is populated with a diverse cast of characters such as the homeless “parking attendants”, trendy hipsters, on up to new business owners looking to stake their claim early on this revitalized street. Literally and figuratively City of Ink left it’s own unique mark on June 11th, 2014 tattooing over 50 customers for free, while also bringing the same flavor and energy they have been supplying in Castleberry Hill for nearly 10 yrs. The Walker St. location has been more than simply a tattoo shop; it has hosted art shows, listening parties, cancer benefits and anyone who is just open to soaking up the creative vibe for application in their own lives, all things very important for burgeoning minds in this city.

Chance the Rapper is one of the best and one of my favorite, artists out right now. Why? He is original, un-apologetically himself, extremely talented, loves his city, and isn’t afraid to take risks. And this performance of the cartoon, ‘Arthur’  we grew up watching is just another reason of why I’m a fan. So dope.


Miloh Smith – “Intexication” [Audio]

What seems to be the most popular song off Miloh Smith’s second mixtape, “Intexication”, produced by ForteBowie, is a record that almost everybody (well at least over the age of 21) can relate to. A sensual, smooth track that can remain on constant repeat. Make sure to download Pulp Fiction HERE.

Ever since we met Denzel Curry at Art Basel 2012 in Miami, Greedmont has been supporting the young rhyme spitter. So, while he’s on his first European tour he decides to give his fans the record, “Ice Age.” Simply put, DC can rap his ass off. I love that he sells all his music too. Shout out to C9 and much success to the boy Denzel


OG Maco – “Road Running” [Audio]

You know, every once in a while, you’re out and about at different house parties and events, and there’s a record that comes on that people go crazy over, but you don’t know and feel left out because you don’t? Well, that’s how I came across Maco and his buzzing record, “Road Running”. Now that I’m familiar, I’m noticing more and more people talking about it and him. Heard he has some even crazier records on the way but for now, just enjoy this banger. He’s also performing at The Best of The Best concert on June 7th at the Basement One time for OGG.

LR LOW VIDEO 2 SMALL

LA based vocalist Lawrence Rothman will be hitting the road with Little Dragon for the North American leg of their Nabuma Rubberband tour. Definitely prepared for a dope show here in Atlanta June 16th at Variety Playhouse. Lawrence Rothmans music fits in perfectly with the vibe of Little Dragons show, I recently had a chance to check out the track and video for a song of his called #1 All Time Low, check it out below. It’s shot very nicely and kinda feels like an entire drugged out indie flick wrapped up into 6 minutes. Can’t wait to catch him live !
