Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Hello everyone, Mike Mackey here with another album review! This time it’s off the prolific and notorious San Diego based rapper Sick Rick’s new album, “Killmonger.” You may know Rick as one of the architects behind The “Spookygang” collective. A collective of the absolute best talent right here in the local San Diego hip-hop scene!

Anyway, so I’m writing this review from beyond the grave. I was laid a casualty from the sheer force of this release. It melts your face off like staring into Hell itself! And there’s no going back. This album is unrelenting from beginning to end. From the moment you hear the opening sample on the first track “Faces of Death” (featuring, Guile, Speak EZ, and Smalls Uno) you know your not going to survive the onslaught.

The grimey production style, matched with the thematic elements are a stand out on this record, but what really shines is Rick’s penchant lyricism. Sick Rick is uncontested and indisputable when it comes to his lyrical ability. With notable lines like on the track “Redrum.” “Let the purge commence, all I do is murder, never attempts” and “fuck drip I drench, that’s sauce overload, pillage your village, decapitate the king on his throne”

Killmonger couldn’t be a more apt title for this release. Sick Rick goes right for the jugular and lands a kill shot. You’ll add another tick to Sick Rick’s body count after you hear this record. Now I’m off to roam the afterlife, see you on the other side! Spooky!!!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “SHREDDER VIBES!!! – KING DICE INTERVIEW"

BY: GABY MORENO

B21AF325-A28D-435D-BF4A-986D2385BEA2

Hello Hip Hop Head and Horror Fans,

Please introduce yourself for those who might not know who you are?

My name is King Dice, I’m a rapper, producer, connoisseur of fine cheeseburgers and general entertainer. I created and run the Inland Empire’s dopest hip-hop culture website JooseBoxx.com. I am getting into streaming damn it, you never know what I’m going to do next!

Please tell us your journey and how you got into rapping? What made you fall in love with rap and the Hip Hop culture?

I started rapping on the block for the big homies. I would put our names in songs we’d hear on the radio and the young ladies we would hang out with would get a kick out of it and everything. Eventually we started recording those joints and then I found out I kind of had some skills, it grew from that. Everything about hip-hop is cool. The dudes I was watching and wanted to be like epitomized hip-hop in my eyes. I was watching Kid N’ Play dance, rap, and get the finest girls. I was watching The Fresh Prince on his TV show dressing fly, saying the funniest jokes … and getting the finest girls. Even in Living Color or All That were heavily influenced by hip-hop, so I feel it was the culture I was immersed in from birth. I loved Hip-hop before I knew what it was.

You live in the Inland Empire how is the Hip Hop scene in your area? Do you feel it needs more recognition?

I think the I.E. has some of the most talented acts in this country. It’s a region that is so diverse but consistently innovates. Most importantly, we make bangers. From production, to singles, to full-blown albums. Being from the I.E. is something I’m really proud of.

You mention how certain cartoons and comics inspire your lyrics. What or who else inspires your music and lyrics?

Anime, video games, and anything else I rock with in real life, is in my music. I also mentor a lot of teens so I’m conscious about that while still trying to inspire and lead. I’m a big movie buff so first off, go check out Movies Millennials Should Movie with me and my homie Parker Edison on YouTube, but that also shapes how I spit rhymes. I’m a product of my environment too so I grew up around a bunch of hood dudes from Crips, Pirus, Mexican gangs, pimps, and I soaked up what I could from all of them. I wasn’t ever the most gangsta guy on the block, but I had a little stretch where I ran the streets and did my thing too, so you’ll find that in my music.

CF1EFB0D-2BC5-4E75-B2D0-F4FEA5FAC6B9
King Dice moniker, what is the significance or meaning of your artistic name?

All the homies had hood names in my neighborhood. When I really started running with the big dogs, they called me Lil Psycho. One day I was like “I’m not even close to psycho”. The thing about a name like that is you constantly have to justify it. Dudes named Knockout always have to fight, dudes named Money can’t be caught broke, etc. I never liked not having money, so I used to shoot dice at school as a little hustle. I was Lil Dice, then Young Dice, and when I left that hood shit alone, I didn’t want to abandon my name because I WAS Dice. I felt like the evolution was leading me to something greater and that’s where the King came in. One of my greatest lyrical influences is the Fresh Prince too so I had to keep it royal.

Any new projects or albums dropping soon that we can anticipate?

I’m working on some music I’ll be dropping this year. I have a secret group project I’m trying to make happen and maybe even a beat tape.

How did you become part of The Fresh State? How does that collective motivate you or help contribute to your craft?

Kill C. Rey and Hip Hop Eddie were able to see me rock at an event a couple years ago. They saw some untapped potential in me, and I was fortunate enough to be offered a spot with the squad. Just being around such a diverse and creative collective motivates me. The Fresh State really knows how to decipher the code that is the music business and they have been a huge part of helping me the last few years. Shout out to them!

What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?

This is a dope follow-up question because during those early meetings with The Fresh State they asked me something like “what do you want from music?”. Literally everything I asked for they have helped me achieve, one of the biggest things being more touring. They put me on my first real tour I was getting paid from. Some other things that were big for me is opening up for acts I grew up on like DMX and Suga Free and my album Shalu Avenue being received the way it was.

Do you feel it is important to listen to other types of music to inspire you to create innovative music? If so what other genres of music do you listen to?

I actually don’t really listen to rap, like, It’s pretty rare. I’m an R&B, classical, movie score type of dude. I listen to some Grime which is U.K. hip-hop but I think my tastes are pretty diverse. I just randomized my Spotify playlist and dancehall artist Popcaan, FKA Twigs, Willie Hutch, and Rage Against the Machine came up. As a producer I think having an open palette is one of the most important things.

What is your writing process when working on a song or a project? If working on an EP or album do you have a concept in mind?

It differs. When working on a song or project one of the most important questions to me is “after hearing this piece of music, will the listener feel like they know King Dice a little better?”. My first album Red Mahogany Drive was about me growing up on that street in Moreno Valley, California. The album serves as a time capsule for my younger days; things I heard, things I saw, and outlooks & philosophies on life. My second album is the evolution of that concept as I transitioned from pre-teen/teenager to young adult. I wanted a snapshot of how I changed, how my philosophies, and outlook grew and matured as I did. As for songs, I just think about different aspects of myself I want to highlight. Most of my music is about me and autobiographical in some way.

What is your favorite scary movie if any and why?

This is tough. I have a tie because I like a few different joints for different reasons. One of the scariest movies that really scarred me as a child was Fire in the Sky. Specifically, the final scenes where the whole abduction encounter in relived. There are some primordial fears explored there that did a number on me. Nightmare on Elm Street was the first horror film that I willingly checked out (Wes Craven’s New Nightmare specifically) and I fell in love with the concept of Freddie Krueger and the meta-ness of that flick. As an adult I really liked Paranormal Activity 3. I think the suspense of that movie really made it a fun movie to get you scared.

What about favorite horror or scary tv shows you had and why?

I really like the new Sabrina show on Netflix. The way they traded the campy comedy for a serious occult-themed interpretation is dope. American Horror Story: Coven is a great horror TV miniseries. Ash vs. Evil Dead is one of my favorites too. I liked True Blood as well, but my favorite has to be Goosebumps or Are You Afraid of the Dark from Nickelodeon back in the day. It introduced me to the horror TV genre, and I remember some of the episodes being so scary but being addicted to them.

If you could be any horror villain who would you be and why?

My gut says Freddie, but I want to make sure I have fun so I’m going to go with a more unorthodox pick and say Chucky. The pranks alone you could pull off as Chucky would be crazy. I don’t have to go around killing folks. This idea is giving me Ventriloquist and Scarface from Batman vibes. Like, he’s a doll but he’s a mob boss and the puppet is the one who is actually pulling the strings (no pun intended).

Movies millennials should movie with Parker? How did that start are you a cinephile?

I’m definitely a cinephile! Parker and I are the type of people that can really hang out and talk about movies. Directors, actors, crazy and outlandish movie trivia. I mentor a lot of teenagers and it’s mind-boggling sometimes the classic films they have never heard of. Out of that, the concept was born. We were like “let’s educate this whole generation about movies they may have never heard of but NEED to see!”

Do you believe in the supernatural if so, have you had any supernatural experiences you can share?

I believe in the supernatural for sure. Not so much the mystic or paranormal but aliens? Aliens are definitely a thing in my opinion. I couldn’t tell you what they look like or if they interact with humanity at all, but I think they exist. My pops put me up on things like The Majestic 12, Project Blue Book, and books like Behold a Pale Horse were chilling in the house. Pops would tell me about things he saw in the military and let’s just say I’ve been convinced.

Any legends or stories you grew up being told that scared you as a kid?

Stories like La Llorona scared me because I knew about Candy Man, it was a Black cultural thing that I thought was real, saying his name in the mirror would summon him to kill you. My other friend told me about Bloody Mary and our Mexican homie put us up on game about La Llorona. Somehow in our little kid logic we deduced they were all the same being and that scared the shit out of us. Those were good times. I also vividly remember seeing this show air on Fox called Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County. It’s a mockumentary (a fictional story made to look like it was a real documentary). I didn’t know what it was at the time, so this found footage show scared the shit out of me. I thought it was a real account of a family that was abducted.

Who are your fav emcees dead or alive?

I love art and artists that are making the wave as opposed to riding the wave so that is a constantly revolving door for me, but I’ll give it a shot. Jaden is super dope to me, J Cole gets mad rotation in my whip, Kanye West was that guy for the longest time in my eyes, Snoop Dogg has stayed relevant by reinventing himself constantly which is something I admire, and I’d also have to include Nipsey Hussle for his dope music and his distribution of knowledge. My all-time favorite is probably the Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff/ Will Smith. The Fresh Prince had a huge impact on my love for storytelling in hip-hop. I try to incorporate a style that is accessible to the most amount of people and that is something I picked up from them.

To you, what is the difference between an emcee and a rapper?

From a fundamentalist perspective we get the word Emcee from Master of Ceremonies so the way I use it today is pertaining to someone who not only can kick dope rhymes but can put on a good show, rock the crowd, and command attention. A rapper is someone with the lyrical prowess to put together dope words in a creative and/or thought-provoking way. You typically have to be a good rapper to be a good emcee, but some rappers never become good emcees (and that’s ok). For example, Jay Z is a great emcee and rapper while a lot of battle rappers that try to transition to the mainstream have the lyrical skill but don’t find commercial success because they can’t pin down the master of ceremonies. I hope that makes sense.

ABB77D77-9B6D-4400-8005-DFEE7FA6E3A0

What is your fav rap song and rap albums of all time? Why?

Dr. Dre’s Chronic 2001 is like concentrated West Coast to me. I had a homegirl who was a part of the Roc A Fella Street Team in high school, she would give me CDs way before they dropped like Kanye’s College Dropout and Jay Z’s The Black Album, not only was I stunting in school because I had these projects super early but I was becoming a producer at the time and both projects had heat that left me in awe. Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Greatest Hits Album is a must for me because I know every word of it. Some songs that come to mind are Boyz-N-The-Hood by Eazy E, Why U Bullshittin’? by Suga Free, and Summertime by Fresh Prince. They all remind me of my youth

What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind either creatively or on a personal level?

I’m leaving my mark through my work with youth. I’ve mentored over 150 teenagers over the last 3 or 4 years. My legacy is how THEY will move forward and change the world for the better. I’ve made albums that are a true expression of King Dice. They’ll be immortalized on the internet. I don’t know if I can ask for more than that. I’m happy with what I’ve already accomplished so every day I do anything is just icing on the cake.21. Where do you see yourself in the next five years and what is your ultimate dream or goal?

In five years, I’ll be happy and doing whatever I want. My show with Parker came out a simple conversation, my ability to produce and create music allows me the freedom to do what I want on a whim. I may want to act, or direct more videos, or start a podcast. I’m not really sure because I’ve learned to enjoy the ride so much that the destination isn’t really as important to me at the moment. My ultimate dream is to be an old man one day telling a youngin’ about all the things I’ve done. AS long as when that moment comes, I don’t have any regrets… I’d consider that mission: accomplished.

Any platforms or people you would like to shout out.

Definitely! My wife is my rock and my queen, she indirectly makes it all possible. Shouts out to Royal Gambling Club, JooseBoxx.com, The Fresh State, Platform Collection, Stand and Deliver Collective, The whole I.E., and last, but not least 7 Octoberz!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “TAKE A KNEE!!! – MARK X – KAEPERNICK SINGLE REVIEW”

BY: MIKE MACKEY

Artist: Mark X

Single: Kaepernick

Release Date: Jan 30, 2020

Buy/Stream album: All streaming platforms

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I’m reviewing the newly released single “Kaepernick” from multifaceted rapper and entertainer Mark X. The track intro starts off with an ethereal sweeping arraignment notably marked by the overlaying sample of “It’s pressure, man. The more you feel coming back. That’s just a reminder on how much you possibly could stand, you feel me?”

This couldn’t be more evident in the tackling of such strong subject matter on this record, but Mark not only manages to highlight this plight, he is also able to do so with discerning wordplay that showcases his aptitude and clever display upon the mic.

This lyrical dexterity is also highlighted in the chorus.”Kaepernick feeling, I can’t stand up. Started as a poem then turned it into a stanza.” The track throughout maintains a raw personal feel that sets itself apart from other conscious hip hop contemporaries. Although you may be in solidarity with the message, you’re gonna want to stand up for something after you hear this new single!

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Tre Castro’s compilation project, “Supreme” that features San Diego artists.

The project is filled with trap beats that are pure bangers! You also get some tracks that are in Spanglish. This project is definitely a vibe! You get the tracks with heavy bass that you can definitely bump in your car. It is a feel good vibe to get you hyped for the club or just to go have a fun night with your friends!

TreCastro is in his own lane he is viibing to a different sound. San Diego is becoming the hub for breeding great Hip Hop talent. I love that TreCastro is experimenting with his sound with a mix of trap/latin type beats. We need diversity in the rap game and this is what this project brings.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “LA MARAVILLA IS BACK!!! – ARCANGEL – HISTORIAS DE UN CAPRICORNIO ALBUM REVIEW”

BY: GABY MORENO

Artist: Arcangel

Album: Historias De Un Capricornio

Release Date: December 20, 2019

Buy/Stream: All streaming platforms

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Arcangel’s album, “Historias De Un Capricornio”. It is no secret that I am a huge Arcangel fan. He is actually my favorite artist from the Reggaeton/ Genero Urbano genre. He is versatile he can sing and rap his ass off! His music has substance he can do a love track, then do a hard trap song and even inspirational tracks. He really can’t be compared to anyone he created his own lane! He is constantly reinventing himself. This project has been a long time coming he announce this project years ago and I am glad it finally got a release date! As he mentioned some of the tracks were from years ago, but what I love about his sound that he is so ahead of his time the tracks fit in perfect with todays sound. It is like he never left!

The album consists of 15 tracks and a running time of 51 minutes. He opens up the album with the track, “Mi Testimonio”. If I’m not mistaken his kids open the track. It is a very introspective and inspirational track. He raps how he has gone thru a lot of struggles and surrounded by fake people, but he managed to pull thru! He is thankful he has made it this far and does miss his life before the fame. The fame is great, but it comes with its problems as well. We also get a few dope features from Bad Bunny, Sech, Myke Towers, Ozuna and Manuel Turizo. My favorite standout tracks would be Mi Testimonio, Ponte Bonita, Habitos, Sigues Con El, Memoria Rota, Te Esperare and Invicto! This is another dope project that does not have skippable tracks. I have this project on frequent rotation. If you love Arcangel you won’t be disappointed! Check it out!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “YOUNG KING DEL GENERO URBANO!!! – MYKE TOWERS – EASY MONEY BABY ALBUM REVIEW”

Artist: Myke Towers

Album: Easy Money Baby

Release Date: January 23, 2020

Buy/Stream: All streaming platforms

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Myke Towers’ album, “Easy Money Baby”. I first came across Myke Towers when El Guru from Rapeton listed him as his top 5 new favorite rappers en el genero urbano. I decided to look him up and his music. I could see his talent and drive. His lyricism is very witty and descriptive. At times a bit even poetic. I really dug that he was versatile he could go in and do a trap beat with fire bars, but he also had dope love songs. When I heard he was dropping a new album I was hyped! Myke delivered a great body of work from top to finish every track goes hard. I honestly love the whole album as a whole. There is maybe 1 or 2 tracks I could do without, but the rest I have them on repeat! Myke set the bar high for the rest of la sangre nueva.

The album consists of 18 tracks with a running time of 55 minutes. This is Myke Towers second studio album. You get production from Faraon Twilightzone, The Rudeboyz, Smash David and more. My top favorite tracks off this project have to be Relacion Rota, Diosa, Piensan, Tiene Que Saber, Ronca y La Playa. The only feature you get is Farruko, which is dope that he carried this project on his own pretty much. I don’t think he needed that many features to show that he could produce hits on his own. He is definitely of the new cats I fuck with in this genero. He is definitely one to look out for. He is doing great things! Definitely tune in to this project if you like Reggeaton or latin trap!

Thank you for reading my album review! Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE – GENE FLO FT. NEMY!!! – DO IT WITH SONG SINGLE REVIEW”

BY: MIKE MACKEY

Screenshot_20200223-120606__01

Artist: Gene Flo (Producer) ft. Nemy

Single: Do It With Song

Release Date: Feb 14, 2020

Buy/Stream album: All streaming platforms

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Tucked into a dimly lit booth amongst the flurry of cascading lights and sounds you’ll find the dynamic and compelling producer, Gene Flo. I caught up with Gene recently to discuss his new single “Do it with Song” featuring prominent San Diego based Rapper Nemy, which is quickly becoming a staple on every local hip hop heads playlist. Gene had this to say when asked about his new project,

Mike Mackey: “Hey Gene, how’s it going? I’m curious, what was your inspiration while creating “Do it with Song?”

Gene Flo: “I create in the moment. I go off the energy in the room. I don’t think too much and just go with the FLO. I flipped the sample and the “I LOVE YOU” vocal set the tone.”

This empyreal approach to his production style sets Gene Flo apart from his contemporaries. This sentiment was also shared by Nemy, who had this to say:

Nemy: “Me and Gene been in the lab a few times. it’s easy. Play beat, I like it, then I jump on it. Simple. He takes care of the technical.”

Nemy also had this to add, “The creative process depends on the vibe. Especially for me because I do not write. I do it all in my head. So I gotta be in a good space in my noggin to give the best work possible. This joint we did was our first session together last year. I did this joint maybe in 15-20 mins if I’m correct. We been sitting on it for awhile. What better day than Valentine’s Day to release it!”

This seamless production style compliments Nemy’s veracious subject matter of love lost, and a yearning to return to a feeling of the essence of Love.

Nemy: “So, “Do it with song” is one of those joints that most of us can relate to. Whoever has been in a real relationship has most likely experienced something like that. Many have lost “a good one’. U know?”

Nemy continued: “My message more than the subject matter in the record would be to not to be afraid to be vulnerable as an artist. So it didn’t matter what the song was. If you’re willing to take it there, “personal” I think u gotta respect it.”

Nemy’s tenacious and fervent approach to lyricism is unparalleled on this record. He crafts an ardent picture of a man who is reconciling with his past mistakes, and atoning for a love once had. Even more impressive is the fact that Nemy was able to completely improvise this record with such precision and poise. That focused work ethic is a reflection of his professionalism and mastery of his craft.

Gene Flo had this to add as well, “Working with Nemy is like working with a hungry boxer in a training session. He will not be outworked in the studio. Watch out for Nemy to be on everyones playlist all year and for years to come!”

I couldn’t agree more. You can catch Gene Flo performing “Do it with Song” and other hits at this year’s THOP Festival in Ontario CA April 4th, Nemy will be providing some hosting duties for this festival as well, he might even jump in on a feature, so keep a look out! You don’t want to miss it! Go download “Do it with Song” on all streaming services and go follow @gene_Flo and @Itsnemy on Instagram.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “VETERANS VS ZOMBIE DRUG ADDICTS!!! – VFW MOVIE REVIEW”

BY: GABY MORENO

Image result for vfw movie poster

Movie: VFW

Main Cast: Stephen Land, Fred Williamson, William Sadler, Martin Kove and more

IMDB synopsis: “A group of war veterans must defend their local VFW post and an innocent teen against a deranged drug dealer and his relentless army of punk mutants.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will reviewing the film “VFW” who was directed by Joe Begos. He directed the film that came out last year titled “Bliss”. A signature of Begos filmmaking is his use of bright neonish colors. He loves using purples and pinks which normally I am not a fan of dark scenery, but in this case it went with the plot. The main premise of the film is there is this highly addictive drug that makes people look like Zombies. There is the main drug lord who ends up throwing the drug off the roof and one of the fiends jumps off the roof to get it. Of course she meets a gory death and her sister finds her. In order to get her revenge she breaks into the drug lords safe and steals his last batch of drugs. This sets the movie in motion because the drug lord finds out and sends his goons and zombie looking addicts to go get his drugs and kill the girl. The girl ends up going into a VFW bar where Veterans are hanging out as they always do. They are forced to defend the girl.

The film is very gory, the action and killing scenes are very entertaining. You are rooting the whole time for the Veterans who are much older, but experienced due to having been in combat. It was very nostalgic seeing legendary action actors all in one movie kicking ass! Overall the cast and story where great! This year has started slow with providing quality horror movies. A lot of the early releases have failed to meet expectations or just fell short. From Gretel and Hansel to The Turning. I also heard The Grudge and Fantasy Island failed miserably. I was pleasantly surprised with VFW it was refreshing to finally see a horror action flick done right! Yes the plot is a bit predictable and simple, but I felt like it captivated the viewers attention. Definitely had me at the edge of my seat. It accomplished what it was set to do. I highly recommend this film. Best Horror film of 2020 so far!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “BEAUTIFULLY ABSTRACT!!! – MILKY WAYNE X SKINNY VENY – GORGEOUS ALBUM REVIEW”

Artist: Milky Wayne & Skinny Veny

Album: Gorgeous

Release Date: December 31, 2019

Buy/Stream album: All streaming platforms

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Milky Wayne and Skinny Veny’s album, Gorgeous! This is the follow up album to The Hideous. The album consists of 21 tracks with a running time of 32 minutes. What I love about Wayne’s production is he uses live sounds and it gives it a raw and real feel! The into track Pathetic has a sample of seagulls. I get this California beach with wavy vibes. Then you get the second track, “Lazy” which has a comedic and witty hook (this is where the hook should go!) and of course Veny spazzes out on the track! The third track is “Vary Gee” featuring Sham Blak. One of my favorite tracks off this project. The sample is crazy and you get this boom bap soul vibe.

Then you get the fourth track, “24 Dollaz” which is definitely the hit off the project. The hook gets stuck in your head and you just get caught head noddin! We are also blessed with a feature from one of the illest emcees, Scvtterbrvin. He kills his verse like always! You also get the track, “Funky Lil Bih” that has a dope funk type beat with funny lyricism. Then you get the grimey side with Smalls Uno featured on the track, “Baby Steps”. It is a beautiful project with great production! Definitely recommend giving it a listen! You can stream the project on any major music streaming platform! Go show SD Hip Hop some love! We got so much talent and Milky Wayne and Skinny Veny are two of them!

Thank you for reading my album review! Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!
