One of my alltime favorite central Texas creative minds is emcee eats, hands down. Dude is an amazing painter and an unparalleled wordsmith. Whenever he drops new music, it’s all hands on deck, as it deserves attention each and every time. His latest single and video, Lakshmi, wonderfully captures the emcee eats vibe.. it’s DIY, yet it’s oozing creativity and ideas on a much higher level. Wonderful imagery over a solid song.. that’s all we can really ask for. This one is supposedly going to see the light of day on an upcoming collaborative mixtape with StormShadow titled Rare Ingredients, so we should all be on the lookout for that future dopeness.
Recently, Old Man Skateboards took to the road for a return trip to Texas, his former stomping grounds. Since the inception of Old Man Skateboards, we have since growth in terms of board confidence and skill set. This video, maybe due to the fact that he’s home again, shows some wonderful growth.. longer manuals, boardslides, 50-50 grind attempts, and even some transition skating into bowls, hips and so on. My man even took a couple of decent spills and got right back up. Inspiring stuff, for real.

a word from The Weird Project:
‘When the Weird turns Pro is The Weird Project‘s 5th Album. In 6 years of work, The Weird Project has gone from bedroom studios to performing live shows. When the Weird turns pro is a story about Love, Inspiration, Creativity, Austin Texas, Equality, Progress, and Women. Each sample was hand picked by the crew from a local favorite record shop. Vinyl is the backbone for every song made. Peace to Real Hip Hop.’
A solid project from a hip-hop crew embracing many of the beautiful aspects of Austin. Enjoy!
