Bootleg album/compilation from one of the most underrated groups from the bay. I don't remember where I found this but I'm sure it was on another blog, so shouts out to whoever put it together.

Check out the new album from Ayentee called My Retirement Plan Is Death. I haven't heard much lately from Ayentee or his crew the Secluded Journalists, but every time he drops an album it's worth hearing, and My Retirement Plan Is Death is no different. Do yourself a favor and check it out on his Bandcamp.

I've been thinking a lot about the great Megabusive interview that Etienne from Til Infinity recently posted. There's a lot of San Jose history in there which is perfect since it seems like the SJ scene has provided a lot of talented artists, but it always seems to be overlooked. As someone who isn't from SJ, I've always had a hard time learning more about the scene.
Mega also touches on some interesting points that have come up in some of my own conversations with artists including mental health, substance abuse, growing older, family, and the current state of the music business. I found it to be a very interesting read.
Check out the older interviews here.

Before Acey released his now classic debut album All Balls Don't Bounce, it was announced in an issue of URB magazine that the album was going to be called Universal Soldier. Shortly after that Acey decided to change the name and the rest is history. I don't know much about the origin of this rip other than what's provided in the info file from the person who ripped it:
"This is a collection of Acey's 12's that he put together on a cd-r...I have seen most of this joints on wax ...here they are in cd quality"
