Hurt Everbody is back with yet another banger. Titled “2K47″, the record’s instrumental takes on a futuristic, almost Sci Phy like tone, complimenting Supa’s spastic flow well. The kid’s control and energy grows with each release, he knows exactly when to throw it all out there, while remaining reserved at other times. Carl’s (1st) somber, complex, yet persistent flow meshes and contrasts Supa’s at the same time; these 2 continue to show good chemistry. With the release of their next project en route, this is a good glimpse at what you can expect, check out “2K47″ below.
The good people at Familia recently dropped their December 2014 comp, the video features a bunch of riders at their Headquarters downtown. Good shit all around, winter or summer, Minneapolis definitely has an up and coming skate scene. Peep the video above and be on the look out for more from Familia.
A little late with this one, but Houston spitter Slihmm recently sent us a new track titled, “I Can’t Rap About Love”. Produced by Brotherman, the heavy, boom bap inspired instrumental is reminiscent of those early 90s years on the East Coast. Slihmm’s voice is distinct on the record and his story keeps the listener in tune, Noosance holds his own with a quality verse as well. Short and sweet, I’m definitely interested to hear more from the Houston MC; check out “I Can’t Rap About Love” above.
We rarely do this sort of thing, but the above record is absolutely insane. Seeing as Big Sean calls the West side home like I once did, it’s only right that we support the Detroit MC. With Dark Sky Paradise on it’s way, Sean’s new single, “Blessings”, feels like a flame ignited. Drake and Kanye West see features on the record elevating things to the next level. If you haven’t heard this yet, this is you chance, check it out above and keep an eye out for more.
Where do we even start with this beer. This vicious single-hopped IPA leaves taste buds wanting every last drop. The Hop Devil, has a whole lot going with it. In each sip, the sweet nectar fills your mouth with piny-grapfruit-tangerine flavors, backed by a solid biscuit malt taste. The finished product is rather juicy yet dry.
Some of Victory’s beers can be found at your local liquor store. For some reason, this brew can be hard to find in the upper midwest. If you ever stumble across this brew, make sure to grab a sixer if you already haven’t
Two Brothers Brewery, out of Warrenville, IL., now has been featured twice for our Brews of the Week. This time, we would like to feature their delicious Peppermint Porter.
Their latest winter release of this brew is absolutely delicious. If you’re into experimental beers, this one is a must try. The peppermint porter pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head – which immediately you will notice it’s peppermint aroma. After taking the first sip, I found that it has a balanced taste of peppermint bark, chocolate, roasted malts and a creamy smoothness to it. At this time of the year, it is only right to enjoy a delicious porter.
Location: 205 E Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis When: Wednesday, February 4th @ 9:30PM
