WILDCAT BACK! WILDCAT BACK! GOT OKC SCREAMIN THAT WILDCAT BACK! The homie Wildcat just dropped this video shot by DBL R, and I gotta say… It gave me nothing but pure joy to see this guy rapping and having fun again. They’re easily some of the most creative individuals around the state, with Wildcat being a natural star. It reminded me of early PDxPMBxQLAB days. Nothing but love for those guys. That’s a tough level to match. Anyway, enough nostalgia. Enjoy the vid and be on the lookout for more material coming from the dude Wildcat soon.

Been a minute since we posted something. Will have a post addressing that later and the shift in direction the website will be taking. Aside from that nonsense, the dude Johnny Polygon, Oklahoma’s pride, joy, and demigod rockstar son, sent over the video for “Purple Mess” he wrote and directed. It really made me revisit the song and kind of brought the haunting chants to life a little more for me. It’s off his project The Nothing which should be acquired immediately by yaself.
Johnny is a super talented guy and someone I always enjoy new material and art from. He’s got a cool outlook on life that I get on a certain level, so I’ll always really enjoy his vision to a point. Anyway, enjoy the video.
And as a sidenote, as the site is not updated as much with the frequency of what you had originally come accustomed to, we will get back to the roots of that to a point with a much more personal direction and interactive aspect. Thanks everyone for always supporting us and helping this thing continue to evolve. Now support Johnny and play that video 1000 so it can make some noise or something.
We are extremely proud to announce the first part of a tour we have been working on putting together for some time now. The tour includes some talent from around the region, the middle of the map so to speak, and in my opinion, the complete new wave of talent to look out for. The tour includes: Alex Wiley, Josh Sallee, Roosh Williams, and Pell. Some more dates are currently being added, if you know anyone in a city near these that wants this show to come there and rock with them, hit firstname.lastname@example.org. Now… The guys. This tour. What’s it all about? We collected four of the dopest MCs around the middle of the map; guys who have as much talent as anyone in the top 25 of any list regarding HipHop, and we turned them into monsters. Well, MonStars, actually. And who doesn’t rock with Space Jam? That’s right, nobody. This is going to be an incredibly fun tour that will present an eclectic, high energy show every night and give you a chance to check the new wave before anyone else even sees it coming. Who are they? Some you’ll recognize, some you won’t, but right here is going to be a nice condensed version of the dopeness you’ll be seeing in the upcoming cities if you just keep reading… Continue reading
Chance The Rapper has been everywhere collaborating with everyone, including one of my favorite artists ever, James Blake.This is the visual treatment they put together for their track “Life Round Here”. The black and white works extremely well with the setting they chose to drive around and view the life ’round there. This is one of my favorite tracks of the year and seeing as how it was raining like crazy this morning, this video seemingly couldn’t have come at a better time to serve a little slice of ambience. Enjoy.
My man Roosh Williams got an incredible opportunity from Simple Mobile for their Game Changing Series. They selected him to do a webseries of what it’s like to be on the come up as a rapper in the underground in such a HipHop enriched city like Houston. Not only did they follow him around for a few days with HipHopDX EIC, Justin Hunte, and get Roosh’s story, they surprised him with the opportunity to put together an EP presented by Complex Magazine and HipHopDX.com that is produced entirely by Like of Pac Div, who produced “Sing About Me” on Kendrick Lamar’s classic good kid, m.A.A.d. city album. But, there was a catch. It had to be done in 24 hours.
I was lucky enough to be there for it and see them get right to work on putting together a quality project that seemed seamless and would not give off the impression that it was done in such a time constraint. They achieved that in spades and actually put together one jamming project.
Application under pressure yields all sorts of results, but when they put those two determined, talented artists in a situation like that, they thrived and provided product that even Heisenberg would tip his hat to. This EP is a quick 5 songs and really shows quite a bit of range from Roosh with features from Like and Devin The Dude. You might catch yourself having the Devin one on repeat for a couple hours or pulling a muscle in your neck knocking your head to the Bruce Lee assisted “Water”. The immediate feeling when the tape is over is, “damn, already? I should probably go ahead and jam that again immediately.” J. Lacy did his thing on the engineering side of things and Trakksounds was more than accommodating with the studio to knock out a project in those conditions.
It’s got range, it’s a quick listen, and that perfect break in between your late night texts while playing Drake’s album and your GTA drive by’s to Danny Brown and Pusha T’s album. This is is an incredibly solid release I don’t recommend sleeping on and should get you excited for what Roosh has coming next, because in all honesty, he is next.

“Cause I know that they feel me rhyming, jumping over golden edges and landing on silver linings… Williams got filthy timing”
The MC from Norman’s own Regg, Takeoff Eyeslow, is back with another solo EP produced entirely by Shawny C. Takeoff is an extremely talented cat and at only 19 years old has nothing but incredible upside. We’ve been fortunate enough to have him on quite a bit of our shows and his stage presence is something that cannot be denied either. Incredibly proud of his progression, but it’s Shawny C’s progression that I’m most impressed with. They are both truly locked in on this one and put together a heck of a project that I think many will enjoy. Support these local dudes one good time and check them out on PMR this Sunday!

There’s no reason this shouldn’t have been posted the moment it dropped. The homie Homeschool has an ear that many others fall short to. Straight up, he hears beauty at an undiscovered core of most sounds. Pairing that with upcoming MC, Tone, fits quite nicely on this EP they opted to do together. I wasn’t just sleeping on this, I was full on Rick in The Walking Dead coma. I’m very impressed with how at ease each artist sounds at ease in their respective realms on this. Please, take the time to consider listening to this here, and if you dig it, support them both. Dare I say, surprise contender for project of the year in this state. Word to Shwing as well! Enjoy.
I’m dead ass serious, this is wonderful…
“And I represent Tulsa muthaf*cka tell em snap a photo”
Yung Willigan is back and ready to prep you for an onslaught of material coming your way. I know for a fact that dude has been working extremely hard on some very exciting things, so be sure to be on the lookout for that. I’ll actually let him explain it best:
I’m back. The album has been very successful and I’ve been steadily busy over the past 6 months, and hard at work. I am also proud to announce that I will soon be releasing a brand new EP (featuring a song with Devin The Dude), so stay tuned!
For the time being — I was asked to participate in a series called “Mic Check” with DJ Donnie Houston. So watch me freestyle some rappity rap via the link below (EffTeeEdit: or the video above), and keep your ears peeled because it looks like this Fall will be filled with new Roo.
***Edit: I was also asked to participate in a separate online freestyle series for ItsBizkit.com. This is me being a rapping ass motherf*cker on the “Jenny From The Block” instrumental!
Well there you have it. Roosh season is back upon us. I personally can’t wait for that EP that will be dropping much sooner than you think. Enjoy!
I for one am utterly jacked about a new Lil Wayne mixtape, but I also am irrationally optimistic most of the time new music comes out until shown a reason not to be. Even though this was delayed a little bit, those who were patient enough to stay up with the download were rewarded with a 29 track project. Features the YungGawd,Chance The Rapper, amongst many other familiar faces from the YMCMB circle. Enjoy the tape.

Remember when I said I was really feeling that Isaac Reid and Devin The Dude track? Well, I’m feeling this every bit as much but the energy is much different. You already know Roosh is talking shit to someone or something disrespectful, and Isaac shows he is every bit as confident and on edge when it comes to being respected. Thoroughly enjoy what the man Trakksounds did on the T.I. sample for the beat as well. Looking forward to Isaac’s project dropping in a couple days.
