Name Building :: Ben Buck Drops ‘KILROY’

a0024126565_10

One of the blessings of having been on the Austin hip-hop scene for so many years has been watching new artists pop up generation after generation and hold down the city.  Over the past few years, one of the artists that has been impossible to ignore is the homie Ben Buck, a young, hungry MC with a penchant for intricate and elaborate beatboxing.  After a flurry of singles over the past 6 months or so, Buck closed out 2019 with the release of KILROY, a proper collection of work that represents Buck‘s skill level and vision.  The project is a collection of singles, live band demos, and even a live show snippet, with a vast collection of collaborators.  On the production side, Ruler WhyFlobamaWiardonUGGOJarvBRKCHK and even Ben Buck himself drop beats, and on the lyrical side, prolific MCs like Myka 9AFROJamar EqualityChi ClopzFlobama and Jarv all drop high quality guest bars.  Don’t front on a legend in the making… check out the project on your favorite streaming service or storefront, and support your local creatives!

Divine Vision :: MDK (Mindz Of A Different Kind) Drop ‘Foursight’

a1307597088_10

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… Austin hip-hop crew Mindz Of A Different Kind is the real deal.  MDK brings that crew element to our hip hop scene that seems to be sorely missing from the masses… they are a diverse mixture, each with a unique style, and yet the come forward with a unified voice.  Foursight is the follow up to 2013’s Butter & Water, and the work that has been put in over those few years is evident.  Guest appearances Abstract Rude and Myka 9 (and guest production by Blueprint) is just icing on the cake.  Don’t front… support these cats.
