Bama is officially on the hip-hop map these days thanks to folks like Jackie Chain, Yelawolf and now G-Side.  They were one of the acts I was really looking forward to seeing and meeting at SXSW this year.    G-Side's - The One: Cohesive album was one of my  standout albums of 2011, I still have it in the player today. They are also on tour right now, the stops are listed below, one of which happens to be Detroit.  I won't be missing this one.

On last night's recording of episode #104 of the HoodHype show Phro was out and we had the duo .KOM in the basement to chill with us, talk their music and chat with everyone in the chat.  To be honest, it took me a bit to get used to the idea of two new people being in the basement this episode (Major already knows these dudes, but we ended up having a great time with Joka (as I'd pronounce it JokER) and The One (aka T.O.) .  At the end of the show, the people on Smoothbeats and UStream chat were demanding a freestyle and .KOM delivered.  My opinion, this is the type of act that a label needs.  Raw talent, charisma and an obvious passion for what they do.  Check out the results of last night's show below.
