MP3: Krate Digga-Champion feat CoCity of The 3RD

DJ Kratedigga is one of the coolest and most cerebral deejays in Columbus. He has immaculate taste and an excellent sense of composition.

Whether he is spinning out or backing J.Osceola, Krate is a great live deejay..

I didn’t know Krate produced. But here is a song that Mr. Digga made with CoCity of the 3rd. Looks like it’s off an album called Snap, Taps, and Boom-Baps. Wonder if that title is a reference to Snaps & Taps?

After the jump find-out where Kratedigga will deejay at in the near future.

MP3: Envelope “I Wanna New Satan”

MP3: Envelope “I Wanna New Satan”

On Envelope’s,  “I Wanna New Satan” one of Columbus’s most beloved rappers proclaims:

“I don’t mean symbolism 666 pentagram.
Most of your evil men aren’t even into that.
They are psychic vampires. They take without giving back.
I want to be the most symbiotic man in rap.”

I think that sums it up.
I could sit here and type out the whole song.  Or you could just listen to it.
If you want to read my review of the Envelope record scroll down to the bottom of the Other Paper’ s Local Round-Up Section.

Envelope will release his new EP, that features “I Wanna New Satan”,  This Could Go Either Way by playing at 8 Record Stores this Saturday, October 15th.

Tonight(Thursday) Envelope will be on CD 102.5’s Independent Playground here in Columbus which airs 11pm to 1 Am.
I will be lurking in the background.
