The Latest on This Week's Update

From the desk of Steve 'Flash' Juon:

Some of you who know me personally are now aware that we had a death in the family this week - and those of you who don't are hearing it for the first time. A few days ago when we first received the news it was not the right time or place to discuss it publicly, other than to say website updates would of course be delayed.

As the death occurred at a time when the server for this website had already been inaccessible for most of Monday, I was very much "behind the 8 ball" as they say. I was already a full day behind as it was, and then had to catch up while also dealing with this family tragedy.

Thankfully things have settled down at this point. A small private service has already been planned to allow the family to grieve, which also necessitates me taking more time away from the website. That's tomorrow though. I'll have a few articles and reviews up before the afternoon is over.

Next week we'll resume our regular update schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and for those of you who already figured out what was going on, your kind words of support. Death is an inevitable part of the cycle of life, but it's how you live and what impact you made while here that matters, and I'm happy to say that "Grandma Punk" as she was known made an indelible impact on mine. She was everything I aspire to be - spirited, opinionated, humorous, and uncompromising in her views.

A chilly sampled female flows through the opening, before the soulful, heartfelt raps Thoughtsarizen lays down takes you away. The visuals where envisioned by Wackoe as an ode to Portland, Oregon. The melodies, color treatments, visual beauty and coolness of the environment had both Thoughts and Wackoe falling in love with this Pacific Northwest gem of a city. The song is a simple statement to hope, love, and peace. Hope you enjoy.

The MC known as Playdough is a rare story in Texas hip-hop. While much of the state is populated by artists who are content to achieve regional fame, and boast about it as if they have taken over the world – this is Texas after all, where everything is “bigger” – Playdough remains humble though his career has literally taken him all over the world. He recently hit number 2 on the CMJ hip-hop charts as well as cracking the Top 200.
