I write for that kid with headphones on who’s failing school [Listen]

Ann Arbor rapper, MR:B, shares music off his new album, Metropolis; inspired by the Fritz Lang classic and the anime remake– the man has good taste.

 

My name is MR:B hailing from Ann Arbor, MI. I’ve been a rapper/producer for 4 years.

 

I write for that kid with headphones on who’s failing school.

 

I speak for the kids living in trailer parks and smoking too much weed hoping they don’t die check to check.

 

My sound is one closely knit with rusty hip-hop, that raw, dusty vinyl, of hand crafted instrumentals.

 

Shout out to Airo, Cauz, and to you for downloading my mixtape…right?
-MR:B

Special thanks to MR:B for sharing.

Halloween music that’s not ‘Thriller’ [Listen]

For those of you interested in listening to something other than ‘Thriller’ and ‘Monster Mash’ this Halloween, check out Ice Cream Fire (Tim Kelly & Jackie Haydamacha), a pop/hiphop duo out of Los Angeles. It’s okay– change is scary.

Small world…
We really liked your recent write-up on Eion & Kendra. Eion actually produced our EP ‘Burn It Down‘ as well as our new song, “Last of Us” that we released today for Halloween. We hope you dig it.
