|Alias & doseone Move With the Speed and Strength of Ants||June 16, 2014|
The name “Anticon” has always been a code for how you viewed what hip hop could be, not how it should sound. Last year, Anticon celebrated their 15th anniversary. Unlike their contemporaries Stones Throw, Def Jux, and Rhymesayers, there were no documentaries, festivals, or goodbye parties thrown in their honor. It’s hard to celebrate an […]
|Yoni Wolf is The Rap Scholar Here to Make a Dollar||May 12, 2014|
Will Schube spells cotton candy anyway you like it Yoni Wolf, frontman for rap/pop (or whatever genre the band’s dipping their toes into at any particular moment) group WHY? is going out on a solo tour with Serengeti.

Geti is at that point where other underground rappers fear him because he is more weird, creative and funny than almost anyone else. Archetypal art rap shit. Open your eyes. Peekaboo. Etc. Produced […]
|Living The ‘Geti Life’||July 31, 2012|
The man known to Rabbinical scholars as David Cohn drops C.A.R. today on Anticon. In conjunction with its release, Anticon dropped a Soundcloud stream to “Geti Life,” my favorite song from the record. According to this track, “Geti Life” means laying next to the sweaty wife, having a huge nose like ‘that girl on Blossom,’ […]
