Okay not only did these guys throw one of the best shows of SXSW 2013 but they are partly responsible for my younger years as an avid reader or alternative literature on Urban music, graff and skate culture.  They approached things with a distinctive perspective that reminds me of what a lot of podcasters are doing today with content, humor and with the an everyman approach. But these guys did it with cool fonts and visuals to accompany each and every issue.  Well now they are back!  I’m prepping for my KCRW show tonight but cant put this issue down.  This issue covers Earl Sweatshirt of Odd Future, the A$AP phenomenon  and an interesting feature on the evolution of writing styles in the new book Flip The Script.  After you read this blurb make sure you subscribe to them!  Or check out the Mass Appeal site! Big thanks to Mass Appeal / Decon for this doozy sitting at my doorstep!  Ps..  Chris Brown article written by the amazing Sacha Jenkins is definitely worth a read!   Thanks again and welcome back MA!

Walked in just in time to catch Bun B of UGK doing Big Pimpin followed by Pusha T perform some Clipse classics and his verse on Mercy and then Kendrick Lamar rip through his catalogue of mixtapes before dropping verses from his Good Kid M.A.A.D City album.  It was a treat to hear him speak the day before with Elliot Wilson.  Texas Hip Hop shows are always fun when surrounded by the youth of the city. I managed to work my way in through the crowds and found a nice comfy spot only to find myself standing next to Austin Dj Chicken George. Small world!
