The homegirl KB the Boo Bonic has been making tracks lately. Catching flights, playing shows far away from home, and genuinely taking the steps needed to grow the KB brand. The latest visual/audio collaboration with The Moon Guys, I Want That, is an expression of these latest experiences, and hope that the travels and experiences continue to come with greater abundance. Another solid win for KB the Boo Bonic.
Ben ‘McNasty’ Buck and Ruler Why have been in the studio putting in work on what is sure to be a dope debut album. Between Ruler‘s production and McNasty‘s verbal/beatboxing prowess, I’d expect nothing but the freshest creations. Steak Sauce is a warning shot for what I imagine will be the megablast coming in the near future.
Pretend Agenda artist Kilmatik has always been one of the more unique and adventurous MCs in the Austin scene. The Kool Keith influence is undeniable, and this project takes it one step further. Kilmatik rhymes under the name Petey Pastel on this one, with production duties handled by Battle Axe Records alumni and legend Moka Only. DJ Bless 1ne handles his business on the cuts, and a handful of guest artists round out this wonderful experience of an album. I’m a little late to the party on reporting this one, but better late than never.

One of the best parts of curating a blog is coming across stuff you may not otherwise have crossed paths with. I am not very familiar with TrillAlumniDJ to be honest, but I know style when I see style, and the video for NEW DOPE has all kinds of style oozing out of it. Dope beat, solid lyrics and a unique visual take all have me interested to hear more. I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out.
The homeboys Moodie Black never have been ones to shy away from giving it to you raw. The latest single and video, V a n o w e n, featuring the guest vocals of Pierre Mottron, is almost like stumbling upon an old video tape in a drawer in an attic that shifts your entire perspective. Dope on the visual front, intriguing musically and lyrically, and an all around brain-scrambler of an experience. Worth your time, worth your shares, and worth your support.

It’s a tough climb when you’re trying to escape the belly of the beast. Domincan Jay, along with League of Extraordinary G’z brethren $ Dot and Reggie Colby tell you all about it in the new video for Under The Jail. It’s a tale as old as time itself, but with new faces partaking daily. Do what you can to get by, and pray that you don’t get taken under.

Everybody who performs music has dreams of reaching as many eyes and ears as possible. The rare breed from that vast spectrum are those who make steps towards actually spreading their word. Grid Squid Entertainment has been doing just that the past couple of years via several stints on the road. Their latest video, Facts Versus Fiction, is a prime example of them spending time touring, exploring their sound, and exploring their dynamic as a unit (and individuals within the unit). Throw in a nice closing verse by AK1, and you’ve got yourselves something enjoyable for sure. Share the video around and show these cats some love.
