JAY ELECTRONICA VLOG – SIMPATICO:
Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder recently sat down with Okayplayer to discuss the future of the Freemans….
“Much like the cast of characters that make up his acclaimed comic strip The Boondocks, Aaron McGruder is a man unafraid to speak his mind. Whether addressing America’s racial stereotypes, the absurdity of its government, or the idiosyncrasies of its culture in general, McGruder’s smart and sardonic commentary earned him a legion of followers…..”

Here is LOUD’S latest “favourites” video. I’ll let them explain:
Sometimes, rap gets, for lack of a better word, disgusting. But not in a bad way. In a good way. Something that makes you wrinkle up your face and feel good about what you’re witnessing. Like, “Ewww, did you HEAR that?” That’s what it felt like taping Grafh while he went IN on these spits. You can tell emcees that are inspired and have a passion for what they’re doing in moments like this.
Here is part 2 of Tim & Trevor’s talk:
