Rappin Ass Thursdays #1

Posted on Jun 4th, 2009 by Nick Catchdubs

Welcome to the inaugural Rappin Ass Thursdays (mega pause!)

I wanted to post up some more music on the blog that wasn’t directly FG related and this seemed like the best way to start. Every Thursday I’m gonna compile my favorite new downloads of the week just in time for you to grab before the weekend. This first one has tracks from GLC & Christian Rich, Wale, Donny Goines f. Che Grand & Izza Kizza, and DJ Soul’s Big L tribute mix. Lesssgoooooooooooo!!! Read More

The latest edition of our blog Q&A series of friends-n-fam brain pickage features none other than Chicago sons Flosstradamus, who recently took a bit of a break from touring to focus on production and studio work, including their debut single with Caroline from Chairlift, De La Soul’s recent Nike+ project Are You In and a slew of remixes including Trackademicks’ “Enjoy What You Do” and this Totally Michael mix, a collab with FG’s DJ Gant-Man.

After the jump, J2K drops knowledge behind-the-scenes of all those productions, as well as what its like to have your face plastered across billboards throughout the country, and the pitfalls of buying synths on Craigslist. Read More

Food Gold: Hot Doug’s

Posted on Jan 31st, 2009 by Sammy Bananas

It’s been a bit since my last Food Gold post, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. I’m out in Madsion, WI right now on the third day of my Midwest swing, but yesterday I went to eat sausages with Curt from Flosstradamus and Willy Joy.  The venue was Hot Doug’s, and this was my first trip to Chicago’s legendary dog establishment.  Follow the jump for the whole story.
