L.e. for the Uncool brings it on this video and reps Columbus properly. Footie of Ender, Rilla and others from the WTC. The video has effects that remind me of Pharcyde’s “Drop” with L.E. riding his BMX backwards at times. The song itself is a banger. L.E. raps with urgency over a bassline that will get stuck in your brain immediatley. Shots to Milk N Syrup’s Ralph Rude on the cameo.
A few weeks ago we celebrated the 4th annual Daymon Day here in Columbus. We had a basketball tourney, tribute mural, emcee battle, parade and a rowdy dance party. We got our Rucker park on and then brought it into the streets.
For those that aren’t familar with Daymon Day but like things perhaps reading this article before or after viewing the following videos and pictures might give you some background info.
This video shot by A.J.(i think) shows the parade.
Watch it if you think marching 300 plus people in the middle of the road to Black Sabbath, Dilla, Cam’ron, M.O.P. , DJ Przm, Camu Tao, Jim Jones,Pharoah Monche and Racist Joe instrumentals to honor their fallen loved ones on an OSU gameday sounds interesting.

I used think I was funny and say that Chicago rappers The Cool Kids are the new Jurassic 5. That was meant to be completely an insult towards the idea of throwback rap.
But shit, doods persona are a lot, ahem cooler, than Charlie Tuna and all those cornball jamband nerds. They don’t sing song over Dave Mathews percussion. Plus I can fuck with the miminal post-Neptunes production and a general feeling of superiority from the reality of how Allah made some of us .
Anyway, here is a video of the Cool Kids telling you how they want to be the reason you cop a system.
They also want you to download their new mixtape Gone Fishin which involves Don Cannon somehow. You don’t get the feeling Don Cannon got involved one of those pay to play scams that mixtape dejays use to get extra money off fanbase lacking rappers that are trying to work their angles. Shit bangs. Download it here:
Cleveland often gets a rep for being a location of pure misery. But things may be looking up. About 4 Years ago it quietly the Land started standing out as the best city for graffiti in Ohio due to the efforts of the Droids, BHS, and TKO. William “Upski” Wimsatt predicted this would happen in his book, Bomb the Suburbs. More recently, Mick Boogie, Chemical Kickdrums, Chipper the Ripper, and Fat Al, have started an upswing in Cleveland Hip Hop. So when I heard Diplo was coming to Cleveland to redeem himself for the worse show experience in his life, I was mad curious. Do people actually have fun in Cleveland these days?
Detox, the roadtrip only homie William,myself and Dkline hopped in the whip, and headed up to see how C-Town Rides in 0-infinity.
