Summertime Rolls :: Tone Of The Cosmos Lightens The Mood On ‘Nasty Summer Vol. 2’

a3017739318_10

From the digital desk of Tone of the Cosmos :

‘Been a minute since I felt like plopping this one.  I was all prepped to do this in 2018 but had some emo issues of my own flare up.  In the heat of the 2020 Texas Summer, and Coronavirus election year shenanigans I bring you this…something to make it simultaneously worse and better (haha).  A continuation of the first volume, maybe trading some tender love for some of the other themes, a mixtape nonetheless.  There is still Summer left.  Ride with me.’

The Diary :: Tone Of The Cosmos Waxes Street Philosophical With ‘G-Sides: Ruminations Of A G’

a1970835209_10

Former Heroes MC (and personality) Tone of the Cosmos has shown that just because the Heroes are on an indefinite hiatus doesn’t mean that the creativity has to stop.  With Tone being one of the most honest, straight-forward and forthright MCs in the central Texas area, it’s no surprise that G-Sides: Ruminations of a G would be equal parts soap opera and therapy session.  If you know Tone of the Cosmos, you know that you’re in store for some personal stories, introspection, jokes at the expense of himself and others, and even the occasional baring of the soul.  If you, like me, are going into a long weekend, here’s a good soundtrack for you… check it out, share it around, and throw my man a buck or two if you can.

Standard Issue :: Kilmatik Keeps The Culture Going With ‘Regular 2’

a2732089798_10

Kilmatik continues his efforts to push left of center into the norm.  Regular 2 finds our host spitting the same off-kilter on-point bars that he’s known for, and this time, he’s brought a wrecking crew of collaborators to the table.  With guest verses from Click-ClackEmcee EatsRobbie AnalogMad OneTone of the CosmosCooley FlyApasoRuler Why and Norman Ba$e, it’s no surprise that the album holds the listener from track to track in terms of variety and wordplay.  Production assistance is provided from Markie TeeHADES, and White Jamal (plus a Kilmatik track for good measure).  This is definitely more moves in the right directions from a man continuing to make a name for himself.

Digital Resurrection :: ‘Return Prophets’ By Heroes Finds The Internet

a0428887257_10

The central Texas area has never been a stranger to massive amounts of talent, and that goes for all creative and expressive cultures.  Right smack in-between Austin and San Antonio lies the rapidly growing small town of San Marcos.  Back in the 2000s, there was a massive boom of talented rock, folk and hip-hop acts that hit the scene, and one of the premier acts was Heroes.  This hip-hop collective of OMNIIIDusty Grin and Tone of the Cosmos brought some of the most insightful and infectious tunes around.

Return Prophets was a love letter to that creative scene and moment in time.  With guest spots by songbird Sarah Lamb, hip-hop underground legend Josh Martinez, and members of The Word Association on multiple tracks, this album was a celebration.  Now, we celebrate it finding the digital light of day, forever stored online for future generations.
