Misanthropic Lagosian. Lagos is somewhere in Africa, idiot. I dig fried plantains, women that can make fried plantains, racism, econometrics, soccer, basketball, Nas, Freddie Gibbs, Juicy J and whisky. Some other unimportant shit too. Talk to me on twitter or tumblr.

Art by El Ronzo Deen wears vintage suits to cop loosies I know this shit is about to sound like a backhanded compliment but there’s definitely a use for some of these cultural tourist ass niggas that synthesize old sounds into new sounds that serve as introductions to the old shit for the masses.

MobbDeen ain’t have no muffin money It’s immediately clear from the opening twangy notes of “Break” that you’re listening to some shit in the tradition of classic Pimp C all the way down to newer beat-smiths like DJ Burn One and Big KRIT. Basically, country rap tunes.

Mobb Deen swears he will never stop rapping the N Word. Every other year or so, I add a new rapper to my roster of ‘niggas I sorta stan’ for. That last addition to that list was LE$. Before him, it was Vince Staples. It’s beginning to look like 2014 is going to belong to […]

Deen is fully equipped to give advice as he is a licensed attorney in the state of Texas. A little while ago, I put word out on Twitter about getting questions from you lovely folks, the readers. Here’s the thing (and I know a lotta y’all are gonna find this hard to believe), I’ve always […]

Deen wanted Jordan’s with the blue suede on it I get the sense that a bunch of writers smarter and more generous with their time than me have written about how we all discover new music in 2014. I’m here to reveal a dirty secret: we all make mean and funny quips about how we […]
