“Freaking Out” is the first single off of my next record called “Freaked Out American Loser,” which comes out late Summer on Dangerbird. It got premiered over at The Fader, so fucking check it out. It’s influenced by Wu-Tang and The Breeders and just trying to stay alive despite your own insanity and despite everything, really. Lyric video and music video and all that to follow. You gotta do what’s in your heart. We are all losers.

In support of the vinyl release of my most recent LP HEARTLAND 99 on Vinyl International Records, I made a new music video for the last song on the release: “FOLLOW YOUR FUCKED UP DREAMS.” I shot it with my friend Joe DeNardo (of the band GROWING) and I think it works best if you go HD, full screen, headphones on. Freaking out is the name of the game and if it’s not in your heart, why bother? But if you gotta get it out, you gotta get it out. It’s never too late to change your life.

New York City is a twisted hellscape but I still have faith in all the losers and the dreamers. Rock and roll 4 ever.

Watch the video above, buy HEARTLAND 99 on vinyl here, and download it on bandcamp here. Also check out a short piece about the video in The Fader.

New JUICEBOXXX video for the song “OPEN UP YOUR LIFE” off of my new record HEARTLAND 99. Another collaboration with Mr. Guy Kozak and another attempt to communicate what it means to be lost with a dream. We shot it in a few hours and Bob Direct hooked up the production. I’m just trying to be real with you people, and myself. When times are f’d, you gotta open up your life. It premiered on NOISEY and THE FADER gave it some love too. Watch it above.

Open Up Your Life.

A little while ago I did an interview with Duncan Cooper of THE FADER alongside a man named Leon Neyfakh, who just wrote a book about me. We talked about life and music and culture and a lot of things. I tried to keep it one hundred precent real when talking about my insane fucked up path and what it really means to follow your heart. You can Read it right here. Check it out man, this is not a game, I’ve been fighting uphill since I was just a kid lost in the heartland and I continue to hold on in the name of the only thing that makes any goddamn sense to me: THE THUNDER ZONE. What is THE THUNDER ZONE? Man, it is just an attempt to fine meaning in this world.

I THINK I FIRST MET LE1F SOMETIME AROUND 2008, MAYBE EVEN WHILE GETTING A FALAFEL AT OASIS IN BROOKLYN? SOMETIMES MY EXACT MEMORY ESCAPES ME. EITHER WAY, HE IS A GREAT PERSON AND RAPPER/PRODUCER WHO HAS SET UP SOME LEGENDARY JUICEBOXXX WESLEYAN RAGERS IN THE PAST AND PRODUCED TRAX FOR THE LIKES OF DAS RACIST AND SPANK ROCK.

LE1F HAS A NEW RAP MIXTAPE OUT CALLED “DARK YORK” AND IT IS FUCKING BLAZING. A COMBO OF SELF-PRODUCED CUTS AND COLLABOS WITH HEADS LIKE NGUZUNGUZU AND BOODY, IT DISPLAYS A MASTERY OF IT’S INFLUENCES AND OF COURSE, SICK RAPPING.

JUMPING BETWEEN STYLES BUT ALL ROOTED IN FUTURISTIC NEW YORK RAP, I CAN’T RECOMMEND THIS HIGHLY ENOUGH FOR ALL YOU KIDS OUT THERE TRYING TO GET LOOSE TO SOME NEXT LEVEL PARTY MUSIC. STREAM THAT SHIT OVER AT THE FADER RIGHT HERE. GO!

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!
