What a wonderful December it’s been for my independent creative peers. This Christmas Eve finds the homies at Fake Four releasing Nada Tengo by Chisme (also the homies) for Freecember Week 3. Seeing REL and Progeny release their collective boom-bap magic on the same label that has signed Alligator Food and Perseph One brings me joy of the highest degree for the Texas independent hip-hop scene. Maybe one day, if I get my musical act together in an evolved status, I may see about joining the movement. It should go without saying, but make sure to cop this project, and take a moment to make sure your friends do the same.
