Is Biscayne Block Boyz Miami’s Magnum Opus?

10 of the strangest hip-hop music videos

One of my favorite ways to kill time is watching music videos. Back in the glorious days where one could turn on MTV, VH1 and The Box (my personal favorite) you could kill hours going through different kinds of videos that showed the visual side of music.

It’s been a sad musical month around the world, but for South Florida music lovers it has been particular tough with the passing of beloved musical legend and pioneer Clarence Reid, better known by his dirty alter-ego, Blowfly.

R.I.P. Clarence Reid, aka Blowfly

There isn’t much that I can add to the conversation concerning the death of Clarence Reid, aka Blowfly. He was a musical legend and a pioneer and he will be missed by a great many and many more will never experience him live and have him point that insanely long middle finger at them while […]

The Best Cassettes of 2015

What a year for the cassette tape, right? Cassettes sold four times as much in 2015 than the year before, at least 100 new cassette-only labels opened up shop this year, and the blatantly obvious marketing ploy and ridiculously-named Cassette Store Day celebrated its third year. It doesn’t get much trendier. But aside from the […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Forty-Four

I’ve been feeling ambivalent lately towards this little vanity project of mine. While it is nice to reminisce and talk some shit about music without worrying about deadlines and “clicks,” it is also a time-consuming endeavor that does nothing to pay my bills. A therapist once told me that I didn’t “follow through” with my […]
