Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: Perhaps I'm feeling overly nostalgic but right now I miss the era when Earl Simmons b/k/a DMX was only thought of as a top notch hip-hop artist and not the constant train wreck of court cases, probation violations and reality television that his life has become.

Audio: MC Bravado f/ Eze Jackson - "Enough's Enough"
Wanja: Rapper/English Teacher MC Bravado recruits one of Baltimore's dopest and most respected voices, Eze Jackson, for "Enough's Enough", a vitriolic battle cry for "the other 99%." One of MC B's earliest influences as an artist was Nonphixion, and it shouldn't take a seasoned ear long to deduce Brav is echoing their sentiments with his own voice of dissent.
