DEAD FRIDAYS: THE RE-BIRTH OF RAP

I would have thought that 2013 would finally be the year that we saw HIP HOP go out of style, as a popular genre of music. Thanks to the efforts of adventurous new MCs and producers taking this beaten down and basterdized genre in  new directions, RAP music is experiencing a re-birth. A bunch of the artists responsible for the comeback happen to be on the DEAD KIDS roster. I’m like a proud dad. Ha! Here’s some choice selections, that can all be heard on this past weeks EPISODE 003 of DEAD AIR BASS

BORGEOUS – FROM CALI WITH LOVE

Borgeous

Not quite Hip-Hop, but this ratchet monster is heavily influenced by the Rap game. It’s the Cali anthem, all trapped out.
