Boston Phoenix Feature Profile: Virtuoso and NBS are Big Bang Records

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Let’s be honest. For the past decade or so, there have essentially been two Greater Boston hip-hop scenes — one for which the audience is black, and one for which the audience is not-so-black. As in many cities, the black scene is typically called “street,” while whiteboys use the term “underground” to describe their tastes. This reality has historically been too taboo to touch out loud, yet the silent schism was not lost on first cousins E-Flash and V-Knuckles, whose legendary Cambridge duo, Natural Born Spitters, have enjoyed just a fraction of the worldwide audience that some of their so-called “underground” neighbors have attained.

Australian Model Chick Raps Weezy + Busta + Twista Whilst Pwning Ducks on Wii

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Ok. Don’t understand WHY this is happening .. but I’m not mad at it.

She’s an undiscovered australian model from australiania.. Shauna Niaz. I would definitely move her to America on promises of Hollywood success and then lock her in a FEMA trailer I bought at government auction and buried in the woods.

She could get it.
