Giorgio Murderer plays Saturday Night Sept 26 at Murphy’s 10 Band Blowout

for tickets and schedule visit Goner Records/ Gonerfest 12

Q: Can you give us a little history of the band….

A: My history is your future. In my time, the entire western hemisphere has been cordoned off with a psychic force field to prevent the grey goo there from engulfing the other half of the planet. What remains of the human species lives as nomads, fighting a guerrilla war against the cybernetic armies of the Ghost Warlords. I,...

Glasgow's clubs are home to a multitude of sounds; from techno to grime, house to hip hop, there’s a night to cater for almost everyone. This Friday, Glasgow’s Southern rap crew will definitely be on one as local producer, Inkke, invites DJ Halloween and The Blessings to throw down at the Art School on a night dedicated to low-slung beats, rumbling sub-bass and pitched down vocals.

As a reaction to East and West Coast rap, the Southern sound (rooted in cities like Memphis, Houston and Atlanta), peaked in the early to mid...

Buffalo

Oktoberfest is in stores, so some Halloween-y, horrorcore-inspired hip hop from Buffalo’s Mic Excel and L-Biz couldn’t be more welcomed.

Though not quite horrorcore in the vein of artists like Gravediggaz and Three 6 Mafia, “What’s Under Your Bed?” is certainly on the creepier spectrum of rap music. On the track, Mic Excel delivers an emotionally manic verse, and L-Biz follows it up by discussing his demons as well. Framing the verses is a crooning hook from Angelica R, who begs the question of the track’s title.

The track, produced by Angie M. Conte (aka Sparklebomb), includes funeral organs and...

Throughout the years, the artistic integrity of Kalenna has earned her the opportunity to work alongside legendary artists such as a Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Prince. Having built a rapport with these, and other established artists, the Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta star  understands the different embedded levels to an artist’s creative repertoire and perspective. Perhaps, it was that insightful mindset which lead to the explosive meeting between Kalenna and Ms. Deb Antney. As the two established businesswomen conversed about Ms. Deb possibly managing the “Borderline” chanteuse, a passionate interaction followed. The Dirty Money singer believes, “Me and Ms. Deb’s conversation was totally blown...

Three 6 Mafia released several albums that helped shape their legacy, but nothing quite matches up to their classic debut, Mystic Stylez. The album, which celebrates its 20th anniversary today, led the way for an entire subset of Memphis rap and would influence artists for decades to come. 

The fact that Mystic Stylez has developed such a lofty reputation is a testament to the creativity and innovation involved. The album wasn’t a major release with a powerful label backing it. Mystic Stylez was an independent album released through Prophet Entertainment, which DJ Paul and Juicy J co-owned at the time with Nick Scarfo.

When it comes to brash, unfiltered and wild personalities in hip-hop, Gangsta Boo is damn near the top of the list. From her on again, off again relationship with Three 6 Mafia and its later formed affiliate group Da Mafia 6ix, Boo–like many other veteran emcees–faces an identity crisis. She knows her beginnings and heart remain with the group she left in 2000 but also wants to be known as a separate entity, not unlike Three 6 co-founder Juicy J.

The legacy of Three 6 Mafia is almost as mysterious as their music. Originally forming in the early 1990s, DJ Paul and Lord Infamous–then known as the duo Da Serial Killaz–spent their early years reading about the diabolical mind. Paul literally hung portraits of serial killers on the wall in his bedroom and studied their dark motives to get inspiration for what he would eventually put on wax. Years later, Paul and his half brother would release music of their own with Portrait Of A Serial Killa in 1992.

Local law enforcement stopped Carlton early Tuesday on the strip when he walked into an intersection while the "do not cross" signal was flashing. They found methamphetamine on him, but according to the police report, he'd meant to buy cocaine and told police, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth."
