Hip Hop

Lando Chill

Lando Chill (aka Lance Alan) released his debut LP, For Mark, Your Son, last week via Mello Music Group. The talented emcee was born and raised in Chicago, but is now based in Tucson. Below is the video for the album's lead single, "Save Me".



Noname (aka Fatimah Warner) has appeared on several tracks for Chance the Rapper and other over the last year, but earlier this month she finally struck out on her own. Her debut mixtape, Telefone, is a throwback to early '90's hip hop with tones of Digable Planets and Lauryn Hill.

From the NYC Submission: Foster.

foster., a NYC based artist blending blues and hip hop, delivers a hard-hitting track to the tune of "Think Me a Fool." The song, which lauches with a soul-quaking guitar line a la Gary Clark Jr., combines hip hop beats, with vocals that feature the warm distortion of an old school radio. The single is catchy, raw and seamlessly mixes two genres in a way that feels fresh. Check out the track below, and click here to hear more from foster. - Olivia Sisinni

Ghost Ghang Opening for Meyhem Lauren at KFN Aug. 9

This evening, the collaborative hip-hop assemblage known as Ghost Ghang, a.k.a. Hungry Ghosts, is part of a four-pronged billing at Kung Fu Necktie. The beauty in this situation is the group’s ability to hit on multiple fronts, lyrically weaving in and out of tight situations, while jumping on an array of beats that bridge the gaps from old school simplicity to a new age. There’s an underlying inherent intensity as (in this Olympic Summer) the baton of rhyme is passed from one to the another. Balancing chill, smooth-talking vibes with grimey, in-your-face tracks, they collectively reel you in to watch the practiced precision. A pair of local emcees in the steady-streaming, eclectic, experimention of YIKES the ZERO and the bull-mask-adorned combination of unbashed, poignant commentary with a humorous absurdist, Torito, will be there as well. There will also be a live taping of Fuck, That's Delicious with Queens emcee and show co-host Meyhem Lauren wrapping up this night of wordsmiths. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front., 8pm, $15, 21+ - Michael Colavita
