[DMX courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: Perhaps I'm feeling overly nostalgic but right now I miss the era when Earl Simmons b/k/a DMX was only thought of as a top notch hip-hop artist and not the constant train wreck of court cases, probation violations and reality television that his life has become. There was a time when DMX seemed to be the unquestioned top hardcore to pop crossover hip-hop star, but almost as soon as he peaked at the top, he came crashing down at an even faster rate.

What he left behind in a meteoric blaze of glory was a memorable series of hip-hop songs and music videos that we can all still enjoy to the present day, while we all pray that he somehow someway eventually gets his life together.

[Snow courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's December. It's bloody cold outside. There's snow falling all around and it's going to make it s--t to drive anywhere. Going to the gym, the record store, even the grocery store is going to be a pain. It's not even that the snow itself makes it less safe to drive, provided everybody exercises common sense, it's just that most people seem to forget all of it and panic the moment a snowflake hits the window pane of their car.

A lack of common sense - yes that often reminds me of the intellectual snobbery that can take over when you've got a college degree and you've been writing about hip-hop for far too long. You start to think in a very limited way about hip-hop music, that it needs to be progressive and advance society, and that it needs to be written only for people who can appreciate the intricacies of well constructed wordplay and powerful metaphor.

Audio: Dave East - "Stretched Out" (Statik Selektah Remix)

Matt: The latest single from The Best of A3C is Statik Selektah’s remix of “Stretched Out” by Dave East. Originally appearing on A3C Volume 4, “Stretched Out” is a cinematic tale of stick-up kids turned killers. Statik’s remix is a soulful interpretation of the hard-hitting track originally produced by Buda & Grandz.

Audio: Cool Courtney - "The Mud Mixtape"

Joe: It’s easy to see why the city of Memphis has acquired such nicknames as Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll. Since the dawn of American music, the city has served as a springboard for several new styles of music and Cool Courtney is one of the latest artists to emerge from the music-infused city.

Audio: MC Bravado f/ Eze Jackson - "Enough's Enough"

Wanja: Rapper/English Teacher MC Bravado recruits one of Baltimore's dopest and most respected voices, Eze Jackson, for "Enough's Enough", a vitriolic battle cry for "the other 99%." One of MC B's earliest influences as an artist was Nonphixion, and it shouldn't take a seasoned ear long to deduce Brav is echoing their sentiments with his own voice of dissent.
