Rap Duo Not the 1s Launch Kickstarter Campaign by Matt Valerio

Rap Duo Not the 1s (Cuzzo D & Mawnstr) just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the 12" vinyl of their upcoming LP Everybody's Rappin'. The release will come out on Gold Robot Records later this year and will be a 12" picture disc with art by illustrator Matt Gondek. The album features guest appearances by the legendary Kool Keith, Riff Raff, and more. 

By pledging $100 or more to the project, not only do you help fund the release of the physical goods, but you also become a PART of the album. Matt Gondek will incorporate YOU into the actual art on the picture disc. How cool is that? Oh, and how cool is Mawnstr's amazing Juice t-shirt in the above video? Where can I get one?

"Bad At Rap" presented by Cuzzo D. of Not The 1s by Matt Bomarr

Bomarr Blog superhomie Cuzzo D. of Not the 1s has finally put this horribly awesome mix online. When I say "horribly awesome," I'm referring to the fact that the music itself is horrible, yet fascinating. "Awesome" comes into play due to the sheer awesomeness of the concept of putting together a mix that consists of nothing but the worst rap songs the world has to offer. Just look at some of the people involved in this (as seen in the picture above): David Faustino (yes, Bud Bundy), Hulk Hogan, Elvira, Joey Lawrence, DC Talk....the list goes on. You can download this mix over at Dublab. (

Not the 1s - "You Dress Like An Asshole" by Matt Bomarr

Bomarr Blog superhomie Eric Steuer (Meanest Man Contest) has a brand new project called Not the 1s that he recently started with Oakland rapper Mawnstr (Connoisseurs). They have a REALLY great EP coming out soon called Why You Cryin? featuring production from Lunice (he produced this track), as well as dEbruit, Daedelus, Mexicans With Guns and Monster Rally. Seriously some great stuff and it's been in constant rotation around here lately. They just started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a limited vinyl release of the EP on colored vinyl via Gold Robot. If you're into this, I'd highly recommend going over there and pledging even a few bucks, because this NEEDS to get a proper vinyl release.
