Mixtape: Trackstar's "Boogie Bang 26" (Hosted by Kid Vishis)
Hot on the heels of our April collaboration, the Bar 4 Bar mixtape, I linked back up with Royce's lil bro as Vishis hosts the newest compilation of my favorite recent rap songs. Heat from Camp Lo, Stalley, Slaughterhouse, Bambu, Pusha T, Big K.R.I.T., Mobb Deep, Elzhi, Pharoahe Monch and more, plus STL illness from Rockwell Knuckles, Vandalyzm, Tef Poe, Gotta Be Karim and T. Prince...
**This weekend, I make my first return to St Louis in almost 18 months. I'll be DJing at the release party for a 7" vinyl release from Tef Poe and Rockwell Knuckles, through f5 Records. The show is Saturday night (May 7) at the Gramaphone, and you get a free copy of the record at the door.
I want to see ALL of my STL folks in there...or at least as many as the fire marshall will allow. You can get presale tickets here.
**I'll be rockin with my dude Vandalyzm at the Roxy next Sunday (5/15), opening for Machine Gun Kelly.
**I did a cool little radio interview alongside Camp Lo with The Focal Spot last week, check it out here. Also tonight you can tune in as I'm a guest on The Carey Sisters show at 8:30 PST.

A.Dd+'s, When Pigs Fly, earned a spot in the "Chairman's Choice" section of the May issue of XXL magazine (with Lupe Fiasco on the cover). Shout out to Chairman Mao. From the magazine:
Dallas, Texas duo A.Dd+ (pronounced "A-D-D," silent "+") triumph with a much delayed project of their own. When Pigs Fly was scheduled for release last year, before the crew went back to the lab with producer Picnic Tyme to rework some material. The resulting fat-free platter strikes an impressive creative balance between Third Coast bravado (the nasty single "Likeamug," the bass-heavy anthems "Smell My Cologne" and "Southbound") and self-deprecating quirkiness (the self-explanatory "Greedy," the dour booze fest "Erica & Jamie"). In theory, A.Dd+'s stylistic dichotomy can be traced to the distinct personas of members Slim Gravy (gruff, brash) and Paris Pershun (artsy, thoughtful) – that is, until you listen and realize that they're less distinct than they are complimentary pieces essential to a greater whole. As P announces on "The Rapper & the Poet," "Our melodic notes make everybody jump for hope/And haters look at us different because we don't take the same approach." Super-duper Fly.
