Grand Killa Con “Dead Pheasant” (Official Video)

Posted by TheMayor

On Grand Killa Con’s “Dead Pheasant,” the latest leak from their La Barranca LP (due out on wax May 23rd, 2016), over a particularly dusted Brycon beat, MC Luke Sick raps: “In my Autonomous Temp. Zone, I’mma keep it all one hundred with the hemp rolled.” What does he mean? The concept he is referring to is taken from the writings of Hakim Bey concerning a Temporary Autonomous Zone or TAZ for short. “The TAZ is like an uprising which does not engage directly with the State, a guerilla operation which liberates an area (of land, of time, of imagination) and then dissolves itself to re-form elsewhere/elsewhen, before the State can crush it. Because the State is concerned primarily with Simulation rather than substance, the TAZ can “occupy” these areas clandestinely and carry on its festal purposes for quite a while in relative peace. [Kinda like underground music, no?] The State cannot recognize it because History has no definition of it, making it a perfect tactic for an era in which the State is omnipresent and all-powerful and yet simultaneously riddled with cracks and vacancies. Babylon takes its abstractions for realities, precisely with in this margin of error the TAZ can come into existence.” Like it says in the first paragraph: “particularly dusted.” The accompanying video was filmed by GKC themselves, seemingly as the TAZ dissolves. The End.

Grand Killa Con “Who’ll Be First?” ft. Awol One & Eddie K (Official Video)

Posted by TheMayor

Grand Killa Con celebrates the vinyl release of their “52 Rooms” EP (www.artofrec.com) with these visuals for the song “Who’ll Be First?”.  Producer Brycon channels his inner-luddite via this 8-bit banger seemingly inspired by a kush nap in front of an NES console stuck on the Double Dragon pause screen. Furious in style as it is funky for the future shock, the beat challenges the GKC MC Luke Sick, and guests Awol One (Massmen/Shapeshifters/The Cloaks) and Eddie K (Bulletproof Space Travelers/Trunk Drank/Gurp City), to remain stoic and unabashedly ruff, rugged and raw while laughing in the face of an ever-softening, passive-aggressive, so-called “progressive” society. Who’ll be first to catch this beatdown, indeed. The accompanying visuals metaphorically recall a time in the Old Bay Area, where GKC hail from, when the marginalized and unheard made an effort to stick it to the man and baffle the squares at every turn, because life was nothing if you couldn’t do a little action every now and then. “52 Rooms” was released digitally through Megakut Records and can be heard here in its entirety:

White Mic & Deuce Eclipse – The Vegetable & The Bandidos

Posted by TheMayor

white miveggie bandidos

White Mic returns this time teaming up with Deuce Eclipse as The Vegetable and The Bandidos. The album starts with a dope title track produced by Brycon and never lets up. Its a socially and politically conscious album done right. Top notch lyricism matched with equally great production. I cannot recommend this enough. An incredible addition to both artists catalog. Can’t forget the sick cover art by Z-MAN.
