Tonight, we rage.
After weeks of planning, plotting and counting up a gazillion votes, The Phoenix is ready to throw down at tonight's Best Music Poll awards at the Brighton Music Hall in Allston. Fear not, we'll have the Bruins on the televisions as they shoot for their first Stanley Cup since 1972, and the awards should be over around whenb the 3rd period starts.
Wednesday marked the 14th anniversary of the passing of Christopher
Wallace. You may have come to this realization through the litany of
Biggie quotables and youtube vids filling your news feed, or maybe a
token memoriam post from your go-to music blog, even if they don't touch
hip-hop on the other 364 days of the year.
As my readers might remember, one of my absolute favorite discs last year came from Boston MC Moe Pope and Bay Area producer Headnodic. I would further boast about their Megaphone project here (like I often do at the dinner table, in stadium church services, and on the orange line), but I already reviewed it and profiled them for the Phoenix last year.
