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?

VIDEO: Ceschi's Minute-and-a-Half Banger, "Forever 33" by Matt Valerio

This song smacked me square in the face when I heard it last week. One of those songs that when the beat drops, you practically break your neck, which in this case, might not have been a good thing since I was driving on the 405 in Los Angeles. As soon as it was done, which was fairly quick, since it's only about a minute-and-a-half long, I started it over twice more. He kills it on this. Check out the video above, and be sure to pick up his new, Factor Chandelier-produced album Broken Bone Ballads right here.
