As I've written before, as a native Boston boy in many ways the story of my hip-hop adulthood is the story of discovering how much dope hip-hop is coming out of the South. Case in point, Miami's always gravel-voiced J NiCS, who drops one hell of a slow banger with new joint "Wired Up". Listen and download...See more...

Maybe we should just all bang the fuck out of Jarren Benton's "Half Ounce, Quarter Pound". How about that? Another insane beat from SMKA plus a guest verse offering from Aleon Craft plus yet more lyrical schizophrenia from Benton equals some straight dopeness. Listen and download...See more...

All rapper's seem to have the same "ride or die," "there for me through thick and thin" girlfriend and she just so happens to go by the name of Mary Jane. Surprise, surprise. Atlanta rapper Aleon Craft and friends Tuki Carter and Grip Plyaz recently paid homage to their girl Mary Jane in the music video for their track "My Girlfriend." See more...See more...

Do you really get what's happening here? For lovers of a project with George Clinton is like a rap lover doing a project with Jay-Z. (If you love hip-hop you love funk, even if you don't know it, but that's a story for another time.) So huge props to ATLien Aleon Craft for linking up with the legend for his new "Mothership: The Decatur Connection" project. See more...

Walt Whitman once said, "Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes." So while I've been making a conscious effort to decrease the amount of "Bitches" in the hip-hop I'm listening to (Get it? Conscious effort?) sometimes I just can't help myself. Listen....See more...

There's a small circle of artist who don't have a ton of "buzz", whatever that means, but I don't really give a fuck about jumping on bandwagons. (I'll leave that up to XXL.) Sometimes it's really as simple as an artist is dope and posting their music. Tom P is one of those artist. Of course he's got the "white guy trying to rap" stigma following him, but there's just on way you can listen to the man and not tell me he can rhymeSee more...

Upon hearing that this latest track from Atlanta rapper Lyric Jones was titled "Gotta Go" I was really expecting a kind of high-energy, "I just drank way too many Red Bulls" type of song, but in actuality "Gotta Go" is quite the opposite. The song, which also features fellow ATLiens Playboy Tre and Aleon Craft, is a pretty mellow, otherworldly tune. Listen and download...See more...

Rather than treat himself to a pleasant evening at the strip club or a "Gotta Have It" size ice cream complete with waffle cone at Cold Stone Creamery, Atlanta rapper Aleon Craft instead treated himself to a new mixtape on his birthday (July 19). Aleon Craft delves into the indie rock world on his new mixtape, which is cleverly titled "Craft Singles." Listen and download...See more...

Even a couple years ago a "rapper" rhyming over indie rock instrumentals would have been unheard of, but the game's slowly but surely becoming more expansive, thanks in no small part to the wonders of the interwebs. Suddenly it's rare, but not unheard of, to hear, say, Aleon Craft flipping his own version of Mansions on the Moon's "Broken Paradise". Listen and download...See more...
