MegaRan has earned his spot as a nerdcore mogul the hard way, so I always check for his new drops.  He just dropped this mixtape RNDM BEATS ALL STARS on bandcamp today, and I'm only a few minutes into this 51 minute mix, but I'm diggin' it so I figure I ought'a share...

PREVIEW- Fight of the Century

A few words about Run The Jewels, and that Machiavelli shit

Dem Atlas barely appears in his new video. SWEET!

Soulful rhymesayer Dem Atlas barely appears in this video for his melancholy alcoholic-rap joint In the Mud, which is one of the things I like about it...


Check out this press release  and preview art I got from that dude Anthony Ruttgaizer for the release of Aristocrats Comics' new all-ages comic Heroes of Homeroom C.

This episode of #KickstartTHIS has something for everybody!

So I get hit with a TON of Kickstarter campaigns and I generally don't get time to individually address each one.  That sucks, because I started GhettoManga to help get the word out about awesome independent projects.  So now I am rolling out #KickstartTHIS as a recurring feature here on GhettoManga, so that I can hip you to great projects you can back.  So let's dive into it!

You swear you stay fresh, but you ain't even know about that new MADVILLAIN figure did you? The one that comes with the 7" vinyl release of MF DOOM and MADLIB'S single AVALANCHE? Oh, you did? I guess I was the only one who didn't know...

Somebody tell me: Is THE PROWLER as DOPE as it looks?

 So I vaguely remember seeing this cover to The Prowler #1 in stores and thinking the art was nice-looking... but I was only mildly tempted to look at it, let alone buy the thing.  Fast-forward today. After spotting "story so far" page from the preview to issue 2 below, which lays out the premise of the series... I am FIENDING to read this shit!

Peep this dope live-action/animated hip hop video STRANGE TECHNOLOGY by L'orange + Lif

Surrounded on all sides as I am these days by people who want to evoke the spirit of Seduction of the Innocent for their own purposes (whether it's black intellectual analysis of Luke Cage, or feminist hatred of Frank Cho), I generally take the position that objectionable funny book characters are not gonna kill you.  Whether you agree or disagree, you need to peep this video for Strange Technology by L'orange and Mr. Lif (f/Akrobatik & Gonjasufi).  Just because...

#DownloadThis - SOUL OF THE CITY II by Shyne On Me

Right when I'm thinking social media has nothing to offer me, I got sucked in by the cover art to SOUL Of The CITY II on Twitter. This album by Shyne on Me, a D.C. area rhymer I never heard of before, may have single-handedly saved the internets from the blazing fires of my indifference...
