SD Interview: Mod Sun Talks Upcoming Books, Full House, Look Up Features & More

Singing Mod Sun’s praises to the music industry is becoming repetitive and cliche. He’s a breath of fresh air. Cliche. He’s doing something no other rappers are doing. Cliche. However, it’s easy to see why these cliches are necessary when you listen to his music and hear him speak. Mod has the power to turn dark into light, negative into positive, and frowns to smiles. Why wouldn’t you want to be apart of that? In our sit-down at El Corazon before he hit the stage, Mod Sun broke down why he wanted to write a book, adapting it for the… continue reading

SD Interview: Michael Christmas on Netflix, The Simpsons, Wrestling, New Project & More

Michael Christmas just finished up his first major tour look alongside Logic’s Under Pressure tour. The 20-year-old Boston native made a splash with his debut project, Is This Art?, last February. From there, his crafty pop culture references mixed in with humorous subject matter spread like wild fire. Several media publications deemed him an artist to watch out for last year. This has all lead up to his present where he was able to perform in front of countless sold out shows across the country. Later this year, Michael’s sophomore album will be dropping. He’s keeping things as tight lipped… continue reading

Video: Dizzy Wright – Floyd Money Mayweather

Can you believe it’s been three years since Dizzy Wright’s debut album? In that time, he’s remained consistent with EPs, mixtapes and touring, so there’s been no shortage of Dizzy’s presence. Later this year, he’ll be giving us his sophomore album, The Growing Process, and a long tour from the end of May to July. His newest single pits him in boxing gloves and with the attitude of Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Dizzy falls into a number of categories with his music, which makes it a joy to listen to. You’ll never know what you’re going to get. The record is… continue reading

Some Thoughts On Hanif’s ’12 Inch Vinyls’ EP

Some Thoughts On Hanif’s ’12 Inch Vinyls’ EP

Writer’s block is terrible, but a natural part of being a writer. Nobody can be excused from it, nor can you predict when it’ll strike. For me, it came while trying to construct a review for Hanif’s 12 Inch Vinyls EP. I got two paragraphs done, then couldn’t figure out what else to say. Reviews in this day and age have a time limit unless you’re like a huge mega-star journalist, which I am not. Putting out a review late means less people care to read it. The Portland native might have just made my favorite project from him and… continue reading

Video: Sol – People

Sol’s two-track EP is doing so well. Both songs have racked up over 30,000 plays since they dropped a couple weeks ago. Despite being free, it’s also on iTunes for those who choose to support. No word on if both songs are getting the video treatment, but Sol links up with director Noah Porter to bring his vision for “People” alive. If you watch all of Sol’s videos on a continuous loop to figure out which one is his best, you’ll reach the end with “People” in mind. Sometimes, it’s hard to bring your idea on a song with such… continue reading

Video: Futuristic & Sam Lachow – Watch Yo Mouth

Most rappers who team up to go on tour together never do what Futuristic and Sam Lachow are doing. Many do collaborate at some point, but this record/video is strictly to promote their upcoming tour. On top of that, you will never see anything like this from any other rap combination. “Watch Yo Mouth” is the two spitting a verse each with some of the most ridiculous, fun bars you’ve ever heard them rap. They both met up in Cali to shoot this hilarious visual, directed by Jakob Owens, featuring the midget from R. Kelly’s Trapped In The Closet series…. continue reading
