What You Really Know About The Dirty South?

You tell me, and I'll tell you that Carlton Wade almost definitely knows more. The man has been putting it down as a mentor and a hip hop journalist for years! He's a pioneer from the south and his documentary is finally about to see the light of day. Much respect this looks amazing!

Why I'm On the Radio

Because I'm a fat, nervous old man and TV just doesn't suit me. But yo straight up word to Do512 and Red Bull for having me up on the bus to do some interviews during FunFunFunFest. The first of which are up now.



Dopest thing about these interviews is that Spankrock and Fat Tony are straight up family to me. So glad to have this opportunity! Also FunFunFunFest has announced their dates for 2012 and next week they will sell some super early bird tickets at a deep discount. So make a plan to have FUN X 3 in Nov. 2012.

Trying to bring things fool circle here. Did you listen to my podcast yet????


Yeah so its really goin' down today. As we approach the end of 2011, biting our nails at the thought of 2012 because the Mayans told us to, presents a look back at a great year for Austin music.

So much great stuff came out of this little musical town, and on this podcast you can hear some of my favorites. This is by no means the definitive look at what happened in Austin this year, it's my look. It's 3 hours and 40 minutes long, so you can either download the whole show as one from the link below, or you can stream/download it in 2 parts. I suggest downloading it as streaming this big ass thing will more than likely be a pain in your ass.

Disclaimer: This could have been way longer. There's some songs I just couldn't find in my mess of a life, and well, at the 3 hour and 40 minute mark I realized that I have probably gone a bit too far. What with the attention span of the average internetter and all.

Anyway I hope that many of you jam this at your desk today and I hope that many of you will spread love and send this link to all of your people who may or may not have an interest in Austin music. It ain't just lil guitar boys I tell u whut.


Then go head on and use one of these links if you want it broken in two parts:

New Video! Austin's East 35 - Block Star!

This my kind of video for real. I like the girl jumping around two fisting Budweisers. I wouldn't drink no drink with smoke coming out of it neither.


EAST 35 hails from Austin, Texas with their much anticipated third album, SOUL, SIN and SWISHERS. The collaborative duo of Young Gift and Bigg John spit insane rapid fire verses over hottest guitar licks this side of the Mississippi.
Check out the album with a FREE ANDROID MOBILE APP

Nice one!

Er, the Holiday Season for you liberal Christmas haters, and our public school system. Which means I am supposed to be making some mixes for that azz to keep YOU and ME in the spirit.

Anyhoo I haven't done that yet but I will. For now go head on and download the mix I did last year.

Rest In Peace J-1 aka Tha Deer

Another rough passing. I didn't know the guy but I just saw him play in Atlanta with Master Blazter a little over a month ago, and I been loving the Starship 27 album he put together with NSect Records, from right here in Austin. NSect Records also recently released this:

The Lucky 7 EP. Beats By J-1. May he forever Rest In Peace. Another brilliant musician and great man gone.

Cool album from Austin... Equals

Good stuff from Austin's Equals. Been hearing good things, finally listening to the record as I miss them play with the Tontons at Lamberts tonight.

Free download on Bandcamp. An Austin producer needs to sample something off this.

This Weekend in Austin!
The Tontons, DMX, Jonti!

Lots going on in the Cap City this weekend of course. Here's a few totally diverse things you could do with your time. I'd like to hit all of them but alas we shall see. Houston's Tontons are always high on my list tho! Tonight at Lamberts!

Might have to head NE tho and catch Dark Man X up in the Mansion though. I know that shit is gonna be insanity X 10. Word to Jimmi Dean and all of ATX on this one...

And Saturday night I almost forgot but JONTI is gonna be at the ND. Dude is a slick producer from Australia whose CD I have had in my deck in the vehicle for a while now. I jam this dude all the time. Glad I remembered this. My mans Havana Joe from Stones Throw (y mas) will be in the house so I gots to see this. And the crew from Exploded Drawing (y mas). RIP J1 and such.

Another heavy freakin weekend.

Also, should I make a new Christmas Mix or several?

Rest In Peace Clip D, ABN

Not sure what happened but I am sick about this. A few too many losses in these past months and all good folks. One thing I do know is Clip was a leader, and one of the few/main people my man Trae would put his trust into. Which means a lot. To the entire ABN Gang, please keep your heads up. And all who loved Clip. I am sitting here wishing I could have gotten him to more countries, more crazy places. I know he got to go to Norway and Finland with Trae, wish it could have been more. I need to get to work on this shit. Too little, too late. Rest In Peace...

Can't wait to drop a super heavy OG Photographer joint next week. Stay tuned.

Melt Banana + B L A C K I E y mas

If you know me you know that I love Melt Banana. In fact I have said in all seriousness, and have probably written it as well, that they are my favorite band of all time, OF ALL TIME. For real, they really are.

No one jams like Melt Banana, no one. And no one brings it live like them. No one brings it live like B L A C K I E either, so yo, seriously, the Mohawk is going to be the most intense and awesome place to be this Saturday night. Please join me up in the spot. I have never seen 400 Blows but if they are out with Melt Banana then I assume they are great. After party inside with Prince Rama and Indian Jewelry will be dope as well.

But after Melt Banana I'm gonna go jam to HOUSESHOES at Beauty Bar, but that's a different post...

Check this and feel the funky real. Hope to see you Saturday in the spot.

FunFunFunFest Recap Video

Exploded Drawing X TONIGHT!

This is one of the tightest monthlies in this here city. Genuinely new music up in that space.

LEGEND: Buk of Psycho Drama! No Control Mixtape!

Some might not realize that Buk and Psyde of Psycho Drama used to live in Houston for a while when they were signed to Suave House. Down with everybody including and especially Bun B and them MDDL FNGZ, they made a big impact in Houston and throughout the underground but alas that Suave House album never actually came out and they went back to Chi and remained underground legends to this day.

This mixtape is off the chain. There's literally NO ONE who raps like Buk past, present or future. The man is his own animal and his style is one of the dopest I have ever heard in all of hip-hop history. Yeah, if you know me you know I ride for the south but I jock the hell out of Psycho Drama and honestly the early-mid 90's/early 2000's Chicago/Midwest gangsta shit is some of my favorite rap music. Especially Psycho Drama.

So this mixtape right here is a welcome addition to the collection. I need jams like this in my life way more often. Shit is fucking real.

Go get it over here at my folks FakeShoreDrive site asap and then go check for a whole lot of new Chi stuff all over the site.

Track 8 has me trippin' by the way. Word to Da Wreck and all my Chi-town folk. Where my Wicked Ent. folk at? Folk.

Houston Saturday, Dallas Sunday, Austin MONDAY! THIS IS THE TOUR OF THE YEAR! #OCCUPYMOHAWK naw but seriously in these daze and times, seeing Immortal Technique and Killer Mike on the same night is a revolution in itself.


FunFunFun Fest 2011 REALLY WENT DOWN!

And what a fine event it was. Seriously, 3 days of real music with real vibes and not a shit ton of corporate shilling up in your face.

First act I saw for the weekend was the first to hit the Blue Stage Friday, my man Fat Tony.

Who brought the band Mother Falcon out to back him for half his set.

Dude ripped it of course.

And the band was a nice touch and a nice start to the day.

Just after TOny Detroit's Black Milk hit the stage.

Seemed cool to me but I guess he had some sound issues and cut it short, I didn't notice.

Ocote Soul Sounds had no sound issues that I could hear either, they just came down and spread the beautifulness.

In front of the stupid fucking condos in the nu Austin skyline.

Whatever, they jammed so hard.

Close friends Stef and Serg came to town and stayed at the Embassy Suites just a couple blocks from all the action and well, if you know about Embassy Suites you know about their free happy hour that happens daily, and well, we took full advantage of that, daily.

Friday night after party of note happened at Empire Automotive with Kool Keith, Death Grips, B L A C K I E and late addition ADd+ from Dallas. Man, this is one of the best things happening hip-hop wise right now, and it's coming straight out of Texas.

Expect big things from ADd+.

And of course B L A C K I E came out and destroyed the party.

In a major way.

I had already put my camera away when the crowd started to surge and go ballistic, and Serg started hoisting people up into the air and chaos just broke out like hell in an automotive shop with beers.

B L A C K I E s official FFF show was out of control as well. Dude came out and said "I only came here for one reason and that's to tell you exactly what I believe in. I believe in total freedom. I didn't come here to sell you anything..." Etc.

And then he just exploded on and off the stage.

Showing folks how he gets down and telling them whats really real.

West Coast folks look out for B L A C K I E and Death Grips on tour out there in a couple of weeks.

Also Nov. 18th at Mangos in Houston and Nov. 19th at Mohawk in Austin with MELT BANANA!

Dude ain't even trippinG.

Death Grips impressed me on both shows too. Extreme raw power vocals and such.

Probably my favorite band of the weekend. A little out of place in some ways, and in some ways right at home.

They certainly dressed right for the weekend.

And killed it.

African desert psyche rock what?

This would have been me if this fest were 20 years ago.

By any means necessary.

Negative Approach also destroyed their set.

After (sort of) seeing Danzig limp through his set, it was great to see these dudes, same age if not older, coming out like its still 1981 and not missing a beat.

HOw John Brannon can scream like that, for so many years just baffles me. Adele cancels her tour cuz of vocal strain and John Brannon chugs on for 30+ years living ROUGH and rocking non stop.

He's an inspiration to us all.

My man Crispin and my girl Jessica in the place. Hung tough with ol' Jess all weekend which is always a pleasure. AND she brought air horns so it really went down.

I don't know what this or why/when I took a picture of it. Thanks for the drink tickets FFF dudes.

Closing set was of course the loudest and the craziest and the coolest. SLAYER.

I wish they would have done more (only) old songs, but they played a lot of shit I didn't know.

Still and all the destroyed and were a pleasure to see as I lol'd at the condos and all the people who live downtown in this city and hate/don't understand music and what Austin stands for. Shove the noise ordinance up yer ass, I wish I could see Slayer play in an outdoor park every weekend, preferably on a Sunday, maybe a little later.

Hats off to Transmission Ent and everyone involved in FunFunFun Fest. Already can't wait till next year. Wish I would have gotten more photos, but unlike John Brannon, and possibly like Glen Danzig, I have gotten lazy (and cranky) in my old age. Also my camera sucks now. As evidenced by the photos above. Yes, I blame the camera.
