[The Boondocks]Steve 'Flash' Juon: Like many of you reading this editorial, I was initially excited by the announcement that The Boondocks was coming back for a fourth season. I was an avid reader of Aaron McGruder's witty, satirical, political and provocative cartoon from the 1990's, dating back to before it was even syndicated to newspapers nationally.

The Adam Bernard Experience #75 - Drowning in Dopeness
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

Adam: "Did I ever think this podcast would run for 75 episodes? Honestly, it didn't even cross my mind. When I start on something like this I just keep going. It's how I've had columns that have lasted three, four, even five years, without me noticing how much time has passed until I've decided it's time to move on to the next thing. The good news when it comes to this podcast is I'm nowhere near ready to move on from brining you the best in indie hip-hop every month (or so). This month I have a nice combination of new tracks, and some classics from old favorites, so kick back and enjoy!"

Ricky Rude follows up the recent release of his mixtape "Ready to Live" with an MTV supported video single entitled "Top of the World." On the record Ricky Rude spits his observations about life growing up with music aspirations and wanting to change the world with his words. The track is brutally honest, which Ricky says is a vital component to his music. “People relate to honesty,” explains Ricky, “because it’s through lyrics that fans recognize flaws in themselves.”
