You ever get bored listening to music all the time? I do. Back in the day I’d tune into Art Bell or listen to my police scanner. These days I turn to podcasts.
99% Invisible is a podcast about design that has its interesting moments. One of those is this episode on clean trains. It’s worth the listening time if you can get over the square hosts.
They talk with a couple writers, and David Gunn – the head of MTA who finally eliminated most of the pieces running on the NYC subway in the late 80s.
San Jose’s favorite songstress Anya Kvitka is dropping an EP each week for the month of March.
Her latest effort just went up on YouTube – a track titled Limou$ines. Check the video above, or click the image below to peep her Soundcloud.
Cassandra The Goddess is an up and coming MC from New York.
When the female MC isn’t dropping science over fire beats, she teaches English at a Bronx high school. This is her first video off her mixtape “8” dropping later this year. Get to know her and learn more about her by following her on social media twitter @cassandra_themc Instagram @cassandra_goddessmc
Bay Area legend Motion Man releases a double single with LA legend 2Mex along with Invisible Skratch Piklz D-Styles and Bay Areas own Da Hermit.
Crazy wordplay from both Motion Man and 2mex on the head nodding “FUNK” produced by Da Hermit. On “Out Of Control” D-Styles brings a futuristic tone to Motion Man where he glides through and smoothest out the hard pounding beat.
It’s always cool to see real writers get their due and make some cash off of their body of work, so I’m really into what 1xRun has been doing lately. From collabs with Revok, Persue, and Rime, to this latest collaboration with Cope.
The newest run is for a limited edition of 30 spraypaint throwups on wood, cut by laser. Cool idea, and hope to see more interesting stuff like this come from 1xRun.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of whatever Blue Sky Black Death does, so it goes without saying that I’m stoked these dudes dropped a new tape with instrumentals of some of my favorite rap collabs they’ve done.
Their glacial production style really shines through on this joint. My favorites have gotta be Joey Gallo, Can’t take it with me when I die, and Frownin — only because I’ve banged all of the originals out in the whip more times than I count.
Go listen to it on their bandcamp — you won’t be bummed.
