Baltimore's Basement Rap crew is back with a new installment of their monthly "Basement Rap Radio" mix. December's mix includes unreleased tracks from Buffa7o, Butch Dawson, Black Zheep DZ and a hilarious JPEGMAFIA song that comes across as a love letter to late-night Baltimore carryout, Jerry's where he details his favorite things to order "wings with mumbo sauce and a half & half). There's also beats from EU-IV, Jacob Marley and Llamadon musicians, Freaky and Michel. Stream "Basement Rap Radio" below:
In celebration of KAHLON--a party that I curate along with Abdu Ali--nearing its 1-year anniversary, here's a video that takes footage from each show, presenting a visual reference of what KAHLON is really about. All the sick video footage is courtesy of Keem Griffey and the video was edited by Brian Agamie. The performers captured are Abdu Ali, Butch Dawson, Dan Deacon, Buffa7o, Weekends, B L A C K I E, Jungle Pussy and Matic808. Get into it and be on the lookout for November's KAHLON lineup being announced soon! A special thanks goes out to anyone and everyone who's made KAHLON special!
Sometimes I sit and think to myself "am I so great?" or does everything suck so much that I'm able to feel this way.
I digress, but I am never put at ease with everyone's onslaughts to be the most original. I find happiness in the smaller and sometimes the finer things of life. Despite my poisoned mind, standoffish personality and attachment to individualism, older people I've met say I give off a hippie vibe. Also due to the massive amounts of marijuana I smoked up, earning me the name Leafy Lo. I started this whole rap experience by jacking for beats and making homemade video recordings of me spitting on Facebook. My friend Curtis discovered these ancient artifacts, passing them on to BlackZheep Dz thus earning me a spot with the 7th Floor Villains. Prior to these recent events I grew up all through Baltimore moving every school year due to my mother's financial instability. This caused the streets to claim me for its own, transforming my promising potential into probable potential.
All in all, I live and lived my life vicariously through others while still playing my vital position. I hate hate hate an unjustified hater so for those who hate with no debate for goodness sake consolidate!
