The newest release on Thunder Zone
is one that I am extremely proud of. A true meeting of the minds. American insanity 2016 style. The beat goes on. Let me lay it down for you: two new songs by LA-via-BMORE duo ODWALLA88
featuring a remix from frequent Zone collaborator and cult rap legend LIL UGLY MANE
and art from Max Eisenberg aka DJ DOG DICK
This is an important release and there is a lot to say (to start, ODWALLA88 are a game changing American punk band, and the remix and artwork are just insane kickers that will blow some minds… only on THUNDER ZONE) but the most important thing of all is that you support the goddamn Thunder Zone and buy a few copies RIGHT HERE. It comes with a sticker insert and is limited to 250 hand numbered copies. Please keep going, kids. The world is a fucked up ball of darkness but we all gotta try our best to stay positive and find some sort of meaning.
The final chapter in the LIL UGLY MANE/THUNDER ZONE
saga is here and it is sick. Really sick. Super “inside baseball” goofy graphix design from Brian Blomerth
, if you know you know. If you don’t? Just enjoy it for what it: an amazing graphic that serves as an icon for all you ragers out there. Wear it loud and proud and represent for UGLY MANE
and THUNDER ZONE
as you fuckin’ pound the pavement and go on a Slurpee run at your local 7-11. Freaked out American culture for all the losers and weirdos… This is Thunder Zone. No rules, no limits. No fear.
PRE-ORDER RIGHT HERE!
My no-rules “lifestyle brand” (LOL) THUNDER ZONE is back at it again with that sick shit that all you kids crave… That’s right, due to popular demand we are making more LIL UGLY MANE longsleeves, but we aren’t just reprinting the already-classic SEND EM 2 THE ESSENCE design, nah my dude… That would be too easy.
We are FLIPPING that design on it’s head, keeping some elements (front design) but changing most (colorway, sleeves, back)… The result is something that might just be the sickest piece of UGLY MANE merch we have done to date, of course designed by UGLY MANE HIMSELF, and, of course, LIMITED EDITION.
You can order your longsleeve right here, right now. We are going to have a pre-order up for around a month, then things are 100 percent dunzo (or maybe not, maybe we will make a few more… but don’t count on it). Regardless, keep running and trying to figure out this wild thing that we call “life.”

STATE OF THE THUNDER ZONE
is back for this Fall 2K14 “one off” and damn it feels good to just yell into a smartphone again. Talking about life, talking about THE THUNDER ZONE
– you know the drill. This is it, there is no turning back man. New things this Fall include a Japanese-only LIL UGLY MANE
jacket and the SCHWARZ
sample pack for all of your club music/prank call needs. 2015 will see a new JUICEBOXXX
mixtape and “proper” full length plus all sorts of stuff.
And also! The “Big Reveal” — My friend Leon Neyfakh wrote a book about me, to be published next fall by Melville House. Someone wrote a book about Juiceboy? I’m still processing it too. More info soon. I wish I could stop, I really do. I would probably live a happier life but I am on a mission to just keep doing the sick shit no matter what. Somebody, anybody… Buy a THUNDER ZONE HACKY SACK. It is worth the money. Never Surrender.
2013 was a fucked up year but that’s OK because I’m still alive and rocking deep in the THUNDER ZONE
. 2K13 saw me spending time on both coasts and in the heartland, running like a chicken with his head cut off just trying to find something that I can call my own in this crazy place that we call the USA. Despite all the freaking out and breaking down, I kept on pumping out the sickest shit possible, all in the name of the THUNDER ZONE
. And that is positive. “After the jump” let us get deeper into the Nu-American insanity that was JUICEBOXXX
and THUNDER ZONE
THAT’S RIGHT KIDS, HERE IT IS. THE SECOND LIL UGLY MANE
SHIRT FOR THUNDER ZONE
. CATALOG NUMBER TZ009. BLACK POCKET (AMERICAN APPAREL) TEE SHIRT WITH BLACK AND WHITE PRINTING ON FRONT POCKET AND BACK. THIS ONE IS A SUPER NASTY DESIGN FOR ALL YOU RAGERS OUT THERE. WE ARE DOING A PRE-ORDER FOR A FEW WEEKS AND THAT’S IT. SO COP IT NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
UGLY MANE AND THUNDER ZONE: COMING TOGETHER TO FREAK OUT AMERICA SINCE 2K12.
2K13 IS HERE AND MY “NO RULES” “FUN STLYLE” “LABEL” THUNDER ZONE
CONTINUES TO BE “IN THE MIX”. COMING IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS IS A DIGITAL SINGLE FROM SCHWARZ
THAT IS TRULY A NEXT LEVEL MOVE FOR THE ARTIST. I’M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT AND WE EVEN SHOT A BANGING MUSIC VIDEO TO DRIVE THE POINT HOME.
AN ADDITION, THE THUNDER ZONE/LIL UGLY MANE CLOTHING REIGN OF TERROR CONTINUES. 9 DEADSTOCK COPIES OF THE FIRST SHIRT WE DID TOGETHER WILL BE LIVE ON THE WEBSTORE AT 8AM TODAY (THURSDAY 1/23/13) AND WE PLAN ON MAKING ANOTHER BRAND NEW DESIGN.
THE ENERGY DRINKS ARE ALMOST TEMPORARILY SOLD OUT BUT WE STILL GOT PLENTY OF G-SIDE (RIP) 7 INCHES IN THE STORE FOR ALL YOU KIDS OF ALL AGES TO COLLECT. THUNDER ZONE COOZIES ARE CLOSE TO FINALLY BEING MADE AND WHO KNOWS WHAT OTHER SURPRISES ARE AROUND THE BEND.
OH YA, BUY “I DON’T WANNA GO INTO THE DARKNESS” AND THE 2 TON BUG EP HERE, STOP SLEEPING! STAY TUNED KIDS AND NEVER FORGET TO ENTER THE THUNDER ZONE.

SIKED TO FINALLY ANNOUNCE THAT PRE-ORDERS FOR THE LONG-AWAITED LONG SLEEVE SHIRT COLLABORATION BETWEEN LIL UGLY MANE
AND MY LABEL THUNDER ZONE
ARE NOW ONLINE! GET THEM WHILE YOU CAN BECAUSE THE KIDS ARE SIKED AND THESE WILL NOT LAST. WE ARE ONLY MAKING 50 0F THEM!
I’M SUCH A BIG LIL UGLY MANE FAN AND THIS PROJECT IS THE ESSENCE OF THE KIND OF SHIT I’M TRYING TO DO WITH THUNDER ZONE. JUST SOMETHING SICK FOR THE KIDS THAT MAKES ME EXCITED! GET IT NOW, LIKE I SAID, THESE WILL GO FAST.
I’M SIKED ABOUT SOME OF THE RECENT SHINE
THAT MY BUDDY LIL UGLY MANE
HAS BEEN GETTING – HE IS SERIOUSLY ONE OF THE SICKEST MINDS IN CONTEMPORARY UNDERGROUND RAP. HIS NEW RECORD IS CALLED MISTA THUG ISOLATION AND IT IS DA SHIT.
SOME SERIOUS CONCEPTUALISM WITH THE RAPPING TO BACK IT UP – LIL UGLY MANE IS CREATING A NEW UNIVERSE WITHIN HIS MUSIC AND ART AND THERE IS A LOT TO TAKE IN. FOR SOME REASON I THINK ABOUT STEELY DAN WHEN I LISTEN TO THIS RECORD BUT IT’S KIND OF HARD TO EXPLAIN WHY. EITHER WAY I LOVE IT. SHOUT OUT TO THE CHURCH OF CRYSTAL LIGHT – REAL HEADS KNOW THE DEAL!
