We just discovered comic artist Ed Piskor's ongoing series of online graphic novel shorts entitled Hip Hop Family Tree, part of his Brain Rot series. These comics, almost too good to be true, cover the early early early days of NY kids creating hip hop out of nothing, putting on block parties, recording the very first rap records, and birthing legends like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, and Kurtis Blow. If you're a lover of hip hop and / or graphic novels, these are a must!

Our good friends Plain Ole Bill, Jimmy 2 Times, Last Word, and Fundo are gearing up for the big 4 year anniversary of their monthly DJ night and major rap party GET CRYPHY. Over the last several years, they've built up their brand of rowdy rap-related anthem mixing into a household name, revered as many as some of the finest DJs in the Twin Cities. Burlesque has been down since day 1, creating all of the visuals for the crew, printing t-shirts, and even guest DJing at their parties.
Between the 4th and 10th of December, Minneapolis' own almighty Doomtree crew fully stomped seven new holes into First Avenue and 7th Street Entry. After 5 straight sold out nights in the Entry featuring dozens of local and national acts, the crew united for 2 sold out nights in the mainroom. That's right - one whole f*cking week!

Back in 2006, I released a mix CD called Heavy Session - one hour of psychedelic beats, rap remixes, rock breaks, scratching, all that fun stuff. One section of the mix included a remix I put together of Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud's 1988 rap jam "I Gotta Good Thing." A few years later, I rebuilt the remix as its own extended standalone track. Read More
