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
Not quite Hip-Hop, but this ratchet monster is heavily influenced by the Rap game. It’s the Cali anthem, all trapped out.[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/78930053″ iframe=”true” /]
Homegrown beats for all my Pittsburgh peeps. See you NEXT WEEK.

These guys are hilarious! What a shame they parted ways. At least they left us with some joints that will be dope forever.

A jam all about what it means to be “black” in the modern world. HADJI manages to approach the subject with a very fresh perspective.

TUKI CARTER & AC SLATER FT. PILL & DELL HARRIS – GIN IN THE HOUSE
AC abandons his signature style, for a moment, to team up with TUKI, and their favourite MCs, for a HIP HOP party jam. Triiiiiiilllllll![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/81798934″ iframe=”true” /]
