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!


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

Still pissed I missed the show last night with these dudes opening for Reflection Eternal with Nametag and a live band.  All good though, I came in and found that they dropped their latest album today which is 100% FREE.   I actually started to write a list of my favorite standout joints on this album and typed out over half of the tracks on the album, which definitely makes this immediate copy-to-ipod-and-burn-to-cd-for-bumpin-in-the-whip status.  On a brief unrelated side note, I sometimes wonder if Detroit hip-hop makes NYC heads nervous.

Check out Street Justice on BandCamp ( to cop this album and two other previous free joints of theirs.  Peep em on Twitter too.

I think it's Detroit day again here at HoodHype.  I just found a bunch of stuff I wanna share with you guys, like this Paradime joint I didn't even know dropped.   Nice track.  Still kinda irritated I missed his show on St. Patricks day last week.

Well put together video and a great track.  I love seeing independent artists put together stuff like this.  Well done.

Detroit did hip-hop fans real proud this night as everyone came together to support hip-hop manager /impresario / writer / Twitter extraordinaire HexMurda. Not only was there a great turnout and a really positive vibe, but the shows were off the hook and the crowd was full of energy. We met a lot of great people that night and saw ALOT of great artists rippin up the stage.

I feel sick that I not only had to knock the hour of footage down to 25 minutes, but I also had to break it up into three 10-minute videos (youtube). If you have any suggestions for somewhere I can upload a full hour of footage, let me know as I'd love to post the entire hour of footage somewhere.

My apologies for the shaky flip cam and distorted audio. Alot of excitement, a few drinks (more than a few), and being 3 feet from the stage speakers will do that lol.

Big shouts to the homies M.E.D., and who were also in the building.
