I've been to some independent hip-hop events over the years and experienced quite a few performances.   After your first few,  you start to realize how tough it is for an artist to be heard let alone move a crowd of people who are there to see the headlining act, which a lot of times,  is also independent.

As a fan of the music, it's easy to get burnt out.  Between the rappers devoid of emotion who pace the stage with a blank stare and so-called "artists" who open for label acts but seem to lack any sort of passion, it is very easy to get burnt out and never visit an indie show again.

All too often, I'll see and hear stories about artists who have been in the "business" for a long time and tend stay below the radar.  Sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.  Whichever the case is for The Definition is irrelevant because these guys are easily one of Detroit's best kept secrets.   Made up of a drummer, bass guitarist, a keyboardist, a classically trained electric cellist (yes, thats right) and hard hitter spitter MC front man (Mola1), these guys are known for their crazy shows, that a lot of times,  will outperform the acts they open for....

If you're in the metro-Detroit area, you would be crazy to miss this show at the Crofoot in Pontiac with The Definition, Detroit's Paradime and headliner Action Bronson this Friday (5/25).  Make sure you support that REAL indie hip-hop and buy some tickets to this show!  We'll definitely be in the  house too!

BUY TICKETS HERE

Also, front man MOLA1 will be LIVE on the show with us tonight!

Last Episode of the Show we knew we would be discussing the Trayvon Martin case. What we didn't realize, was that the topic would take over and inadvertently rewrite the entire episode for four straight hours all on its own. With the hosts and the listeners, it was an incredibly heated debate at times, which reached a climax when an assistant high-school principal and long-time listener from the Sanford, Florida area called into the show. Everything came to a complete halt as we listened some of his personal dealings with the Sanford Police Department as well as a few other mishandled cases which the locals seem to be very familiar with.  Incredibly eye opening and disturbing at the same time.  Read the rest of this entry »

Seattle Washington's own took to the stage at Black Milk's Claps & Slaps tour stop at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Hell of an artist, and a super humble dude.  I'm late to discovering J.Pinder, but as they say, better late than never.  I needed this dude's music in my playlist and if you love some good lyrical, soulful music, you should too.

What can I say about him?  Black Milk is by far one of the best indie stage acts out there right now for this simple reason:  he entertains.  That's a lot more than you can say for most artists out there who think they should be able to get on stage, rap and be paid.  If you're familiar with Black Milk's music then when you hear these songs, you understand how much of a change up and work went into stepping up this show for his fans.  Watch what happens at the 4:00 and the 5:20 mark.  Crazy.  At one point the drummer, Zeb Horton snaps a drum stick (he did 3 times that night) and keeps rollin with it.

If the Claps and Slaps Tour is coming to your town, you'd be missing out huge if you didn't check it out.  Incredibly good show if you're music nerds like us or if you just wanna get down.  #supportindiehiphop !!

The Dallas Texas duo (Slim Gravy & Paris Pershun) perform their (Black Milk produced) track at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Michigan for their Claps & Slaps Tour with Black Milk and Seattle Washington's J.Pinder.

I've been following A.Dd+ for just about two years now, so it goes without saying that I'm a huge fan of their work.  This tour is a good look and I hope these dudes absolutely rip it at SXSW.  Much respect.

Song: Jitta On The Track (J.O.T.T.) - "Friday Night"

And its free....

Okay, I'm going to be honest, this sounds like something I'd expect from Mac Miller or Yelawolf.   So to see that it's an artist from Connecticut is actually a bit of a change I wasn't expecting... not really.    Read the rest of this entry »
