For about 10 years between the late 90s and throughout the naughts, Winter Music Conference in Miami was pretty much the greatest place on god’s green Earth. Directly following SXSW, WMC was the electronic/dance/EDM equivalent, except with turquoise water, bikinis, late night Cuban food and gorgeous art deco hotels. Just the thought of it makes [...]

Atlanta's twisted answer to Kool Keith returns with new LP

Things can’t seem to go right for Atlanta’s twisted answer to Kool Keith, the man known as Gucci Mane. After being arrested for hitting a soldier with a beer bottle at an ATL club, Gucci allegedly responded to the judge’s inquiry if he was guilty by saying, “Bitch I might be.” Well turns out this [...]


You need only catch a couple lines from Thunderbird Gerard‘s debut EP T.R.O.U.B.L.E. (which we posted HERE, as well as below) to get a sense of the Brooklyn-via-London-via-Berlin emcee’s sensibilities.
