"For the latest edition of The Archerville Cartel's No Handout Series, Klazik is on the streets of Virginia and gives a fiery rendition of Kanye West's track, Monster. This is a song where people definitely need to pay attention to the word play of Klazik. Powered by Revo Media."

Don't worry, this isn't yet another "Nigg*s in Paris" freestyle - Shane Eli's latest promo single "That Shit Cray" does find inspiration in Ye and Jay's deliberate ignorance for an ode to Klonopin, Behihana binges and wrecked Bugattis....

I thought I would just give you a quick update on things before the mad rush to get ready for MarsCon begins.

--== THINGS ==--

MarsCon is next weekend.  You should totally go.  It’s going to be awesome.  I’m performing as part of Cirque du So What on Friday night bringing you all the sketch comedy goodness from our new album Stupid Cowboy Thing Volume 2: Additional Squid which will be on sale at the con.  And I’ll also have a solo show on Sunday afternoon.

MarsCon is taking place from March 9-11 in Bloomington, MN near the Mall of America.  For information go to

And if you didn’t see it, I posted on Facebook that I was looking for suggestions for ridiculous song topics.  Wes Kawaja was the first person to reply.  He said "The amount of poop my toddler is able to produce is astounding. There's a song in there somewhere."  Yes.  Yes, there is.  And now you can listen and watch this ridiculous new song here:

If you have a suggestion for a ridiculous song topic you’d like me to tackle just post it on my Facebook page:  I’m planning to do a bunch of these, so the more the merrier.

E Dott shows no signs of slowing down. The Tampa, FL native released a new video for his single “You Already Know," which is now exclusively on iTunes. The video was shot in New York City and directed by Jack Nine Films. This particular song displays his versatility as he raps and lays down some vocals. His laid back style and conscious heavy lyrics often results in E Dott being compared to artist like J.Cole and Big K.R.I.T.
