Fort Worth-based MC heirMAX looks to be deep into the run-up for a new project, much to the delight of us underground hip-hop heads out here. After a couple of singles dropped in March (which I will probably revisit next week for this blog), heirMAX is coming out swinging in April with a Moodie Black produced posse cut titled Hole. This warning about checking your ego features verses from the homie MC Homeless and Cainam, each of whom drops a very direct set of bars about essentially learning to mind your own business and keeping your house in order while doing you as all of us attempt to rise. Check out the track for sure, drop a buck or two if you can afford to, and share it around so others can do the same!

Metropolis is a really cool apartment complex in the East Riverside neighborhood of Austin. They cater to musicians and artist types and provide a chill atmosphere for people to live, create, and party. The show is in the center of the complex, where there is a pool and volleyball court. The pool area has a stage and some BBQ pits as well. The 2nd stage will be on the other side of the building, in a roped off parking lot. The volleyball court becomes our graffiti exhibition area.
THE PEOPLE OF METROPOLIS ARE KIND ENOUGH TO LET US DO THIS, SO PLEASE RESPECT THE PROPERTY AND DO NOT VANDALIZE ANYTHING. NO GLASS CONTAINERS ALLOWED.
Brought to you with the help of these great people:
Pawn Shop Entertainment : 33 1/3 Clothing Company : Movin’ Decibels : Metropolis Apartments : Fake Four Inc. : Fieldwerk Recordings : Exploded Drawing : Applied Pressure : Milled Pavement Records
