Da Underground Sound: Casual – Big Head Science

    Casual - Big Head Science - !!!!   Thinking back, there actually WERE some good things about 2020.  Once of which was the full-length album release from Casual - "Big Head Science".  After a few listens, I'm confident in saying this is Casual's best album since his landmark debut 1994's "Fear Itself".  It features fellow Hieroglyphic crew appearances from Phesto and Tajai as well as collaborations with Ghostface and […]

Da Underground Sound: Bay to LA Since 1991

California is a big, long state.  Its a unique place because the populations are split by hundreds of miles of relatively, uninhabited farm land in the middle of the state- which literally and figuratively divides Northern from Southern California.   Since 1977 I’ve moved back and forth between San Jose, San Diego, Fremont, San Rafael, Irvine and points in between.  One particular move stands out in my mind.  In 1991 […]

Da Undaground Sound: Bushwick Banger

The irony is Underground Hip-Hop never dies.  It thrives on its freedom.  Freedom from contractural obligations, sponsorships, an fickle popular expectations.  It is steadfast.  A true and living example is Godfather Don. From the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York, Godfather Don rose to to prominence in 1991 with his solo debut “Hazardous”.  He then went on to produce and rhyme with the inventors of Underground, backpack rap, Ultramagnectic MC’s […]

Da Underground Sound: Rather Megabusive

  I recently caught up with underground icon and battle rap legend Megabusive of San Jose, California for a quick question and answer session.  He speaks about his HipHop beginnings, five favorite albums, and we end it with a future thought.   1. Which HipHop element did you first gravitate to?  -  "First element I gravitated toward was break dancing, but everything else was soon to follow." 2. Who were […]

Born Day of a Prince, Paul

So Prince Paul is socially awkward- like me.  I mean we’re both kinda weird but functional.  I guess that’s why I grew up liking his quirky, yet funky productions and DJ techniques. Oh yeah- since its April 2nd let me be the first to wish Prince Paul Hutson a big born day salute!     I was about 11 years old when I first heard his Stetsasonic opus “Talkin’ All That Jazz”.  Shortly […]
