Oh shit, keep this one on the hush. Unmixed, and unmastered this was supposed to drop back in July. But, the person who was doing that work didn’t wind up coming through. I was gonna scrap all this stuff and chalk it up to the game, but then I realized how foolish that would be, and a bit of encouragement from MyWhiteBoyPain was all it took. Forgot I rap in Spanish at the end of one of these. haha! Some of this stuff will turn up in a more carefully-executed state later on, but most of these songs kinda met their end with this record’s mishandling. Whatevs. I hope you enjoy Anotha Kinda Southern. And tell a friend, but don’t tell em too loud.

Here’s the fast rap track Werepie (as in werewolf pie):

This is a video of Zachg as Hemol rapping as Dirty Grandpa. Dirty Grandpa is a character from some old school freestyle tapes. It was not uncommon for me to go and enter the battle under a wide variety of names and under the guise of several characters because I have always been on that shit. Watch as Dirty Grandpa battles his way to the finals and raps against Grind Time’s Madd Illz for the evening’s title. Who do you think won?

OK! This one was super duper lowkey. Even for me. I like making very straightforward videos that showcase the rapping, and not a copmlex plot, fancy effects, or expensive things that aren’t rapping or music. The magic is in the fact that we as artists are able to create such wonderful manipulations of time and space, and create engaging experiences by refining a craft. So then, why go and take the focus off the magic and put it on the artifice of the film that presents it? Teal Peace. We out here.

This is a pretty special song for me. As I’ve said before, the stuff I make is rarely topical. It’s usually just rapperly, and thus is simulataneously about everything and nothing at once. And while this song definitely still does the “everything and nothing” its basically just about rapping and skateboarding. More speficically, it’s about me dedicating my life to rapping and skateboarding and weed. More specifically, it’s about the extreme disdain I feel towards rappers who treat skateboarding as a market to capitalize on. Go fuck yourselves. This shit aint for your posin ass.

On twitter a few days ago @SteadyBloggin mentioned that I should make a Lookin Ass Rapper video. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner.

I made this today. you can download at Bandcamp for free if you want to.

HAHA! In the year 2000, if you would have asked me when I’d release my first proper rap album I don’t know what I would have said. I probably would have said something really coy, and shy, but it would certainly have been words that I spoke while imagining something that I didn’t share. And as it would seem, my secret imagination has come to fruition in a fashion that I’ve come to see as typical for myself. “Late”. I’m almost always early or on time to meetings/events (although I just had to push something back in order to tie this up) but in life I seem to hit milestones late. I didn’t get my growth spurt till I was 16. I didn’t get braces until I was 14. I was getting my braces put on as other kids were having theirs taken off. Kids around me were having sex at 13, I didn’t have sex until I was 18.
