It's time for another new edition of The Hip-Hop Shop. Episode #167 is called Flatbush Zombies in New York City. As so often happens on this show, I draw titular inspiration from the podsafe approved music we air on the show. This week you'll hear from Krayz Drayz (of Das EFX fame), Sandpeople, Flatbush Zombies, Kool Keith and more! Thanks for listening and remember to share the show with a friend and tell them to check it out every Tuesday on RapReviews.com! Don't forget to subscribe to our RSS newsfeed and follow us on Twitter so you never miss a new episode.
Listen to an advance stream of IAME's new album Lame$tream at www.heavennoise.com (Available for download April 3rd)!
Lame$tream is post-swag music for a new day and a new wrong. It will make apocalyptic ruins out of dance floors, subwoofers, and all that we hold dear within our popular urban culture. IAME plays the life and flatline of the world’s moodiest party; some fun is poked and some scathing bars are delivered but there are darker undertones throughout. Smoke M2D6 (Oldominion) provides the monstrous production, layering live instrumentation over crisp drums and industrial strength low-end. Guests include Sapient, N8 the Gr8 (The CUF), Onry Ozzborn (Grayskul, Dark Time Sunshine), Candidt, Toni Hill, Poeina Suddarth, and DJ Spark of Sandpeople.
Download Lame$tream for free (or name your own price if you would like to support) on April 3rd! There will be some exclusive packages including bonus songs and remixes that will be available for purchase. More previews, videos, and other surprises coming soon.

Central California’s country rebel band, the Moonshine Bandits have signed an exclusive management deal with Ken Madson and Average Joe’s Management, the home of Colt Ford, Ty Stone, and others.
“We are very excited to have Ken Madson and Average Joe's in Nashville as our management. They are the perfect fit for our group and they have a proven track record of success in the music industry,” says Tex from Moonshine Bandits. “We now have the best of both worlds with our label Suburban Noize Records, and Average Joe's as our management. Both are powerhouses and both have great work ethic. We look forward to all the new opportunities as the possibilities are endless.”
"The Moonshine Bandits have built a loyal fan base by giving the people what they want; great music and a bad ass live experience. Everyone at Average Joe's Management is excited to help expose this project to the masses," added Ken Madson.

Individually, Brick Squad Monopoly and Konvict Muzik represent two of the strongest crews in hip-hop, and while most recognize the collectives for their strong southern roots, both have managed strong west coast presences, thanks to the work of Compton's YG Hootie (Brick Squad) and the Bay Area's A-Wax (Konvict).
