Devo Spice Update - New Song and The Return of Manic Mondays
Courtesy Devo Spice.
Manic Mondays is a 15-20 minute comedy show that I did from 2005-2009. It featured 3 comedy songs, News of The Stupid, and whatever other comedy bits I could think of and had time for. It was posted online late Sunday night so that it was ready for your commute back to work Monday morning. In September of 2009 I ended the show for various personal reasons. During my set at Con On The Cob I surprised the crowd by bringing it back.
Please note that iTunes still lists the old SuddenDeath.org feed which no longer works. I am trying to contact Apple to fix this but haven’t had any luck yet. I may have to just submit the new feed and hope they remove the old one.
--== NEW SONG: HOW TO SING ==-- The other thing I did at Con On The Cob during my set was debut a new song. This song is a parody of “How To Love” by Lil Wayne called “How To Sing.” It features horrible singing and annoying music, just like the original song, but unlike the original song my version has witty lyrics that actually say something.
Wais P gets a hand from Spanky Wilson to add some Illadelph soul to his pimp cup. "Girl, tell em what you do for pimpin'...Pleasure's what I give for money, have you tried it with sweet wine...honey". Now that's pimpin...shouts to DJ Concept on the Machine.

This weekend shall mark the 29th year I've been on this earth, and yes I will be that 40 year old rapper in case you were wondering (you know you were. lol). Anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know what I wanted for my birthday, and that is for you guys to just PAY ATTENTION AND SPREAD THE WORD per usual. I realize I am preaching to the choir on this one, but here are a few specific things you can do.
For the week of my birthday we are putting up our debut album for FREE DOWNLOAD on our store. I'm sure many of you already have the album, but if you do not please take this time to give it an honest listen. Any feedback is welcome and appreciated.
If you already have the album please pass the link along to your friends and tell them to do the same.
Philly Emcee Has-Lo enlists legendary producer Kev Brown for his latest reenvisioning, "Never Was Yours." The track appears on Has-Lo's upcoming project "Conversation B" which hits stores November 15th.
Never Was Yours is a stark look at life's often unforgiving path. The recognition of everything's impermanance is reflected upon throughout the tracks lyrical display of wisdom. Has-Lo tackles aging, disapointment, loss, financial woes, and the devils deals we make to attain success, all with a stoic's calm and unflinching eye of a narrative reporter.
"I compete to win though I lose myself / In a penthouse room, with a view from hell"
Underneath Has' heavy lyricism, Kev Brown kicks another Low Budget classic. Kev's track features a funky guitar chop, minimal drum programming, and an atmospheric vocal sample to complete that completes the transformation.
Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of In Case I Don't Make It. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues.
