New Album: Araless - “Filthy Digits”


This new sample-heavy Araless album is definitely worth some listens. For the most part, he’s left his impressive vocals out of this release so we can focus on his instrumentals. His crew Black Magic Noize will be performing at the March Edition of Home Slice at The Crocodile Back Bar on March 12 with All Star Opera , Jamil Suleman, and his Filthy Fingers United cohort Odo. - Liz

Mr. Wonderful

From his eating/cooking/smoking hella weed show to his overall presence on social media and what not, Action Bronson has to be one of the most entertaining dudes in Hip Hop. Can’t wait for him to comeback to the town. - Josh
