J-Zone's Book Makes Spin's Top 10 Music Books of 2011

Courtesy $ir Charge, Kenny Hoggin$, et cetera.

Yeah, I thought it was a hoax at first, too. My book, Root for the Villain, clocks in at #7 on SPIN Magazine’s “Top 10 Best Music Books of 2011” list. It’s in good company - I Want My MTV is also on the list. Click here to read the entry and a brief Q&A I did with SPIN.

Root for the Villain also received a review at The Onion A.V. Club last week (link).


The book also made Soul Train’s Top Books list for 2011 (link). That accolade hit a special place in my heart because I used to watch Soul Train in the '80s and figure out the scramble board long before the contestants did. I was hoping one day I’d get the free Jheri curl activator you received for doing the scramble board in an expeditious manner. Maybe they’ll send me some. I WILL get a Jheri curl before I die, just to be an asshole. It’s gonna hang in the back, too.
Then I'm gonna remake this video.

For all who've supported the book thus far. If you haven't and wish to do so, g'head and do it! (order link)


That’s all I’ve got.

Artist: Delusionists | Song: Underachiever
Producer: Ben Black | Label: Beats Laying About

Underachiever, the next song in our Lost Letters series, is out today and it's free to download from our Soundcloud page. Think of it as a seasonal gift from 3 not-so-wise men.

The Lost Letters are songs that got "lost" whilst working on other projects, and none of them will be appearing on our next album. However, we like them too much for them to stay lost forever, so we decided to release them one by one. If you like what you hear, feel free to share them around.

Enjoy the holidays and we'll be back up in this with plenty of new music in 2012.

Peace & goodwill,

Delusionists

As an early Christmas Gift, Mixo of the Stereo Boyz releases his solo mixtape "Truth Be Told" for free download.

After several group releases, Mixo finally shows his talent as not only an MC but also beatsmith, with more than half of the songs produced by himself and the rest featuring beats by the likes of Sleepy Biggs (USM), Eddie Logix (Midcoast Most) and Oddisee.

"Truth Be Told" is a collection of solo songs that have been created over the past three years. It is a high energy, exciting, live, creative project. In Mixo's words: "It's everything that an album should be, but in the form of a mixtape."

The mixtape features fellow Detroit MCs Marvwon, Ketchphraze (Street Justice), Metasyons (USM), Supa Emcee, Miz Korona, Blake Eerie and the Stereo Boyz crew.

Los Angeles, CA - Dec. 2011 - Interscope Recording artist Game is giving his fans an early holiday surprise releasing visuals for the single "Martians vs. Goblins" featuring Lil Wayne and Tyler the Creator today. The video gives viewers a jaunty chill, as it features a beguiled and entranced Game spitting verse after verse down the halls of an eerie, abandoned hospital, with special guest appearance by Tyler the Creator.
