    Jamalski

    Joyful Altruistic Metaphysical Ageless Lover Seeks Knowledge Internally

    Jamalski is an internationally known MC who helped pioneer the reggae/hip-hop crossover genre both as a member of the Boogie Down Productions crew and as a prolific solo artist with hits such as “Jump, Spread Out.” His accomplished beats cover the gamut of hip-hop and dance styles. As long as it’s an underground scene, Jamalski’s into it. After spending most of the past decade living and playing in Europe, last year Jamalski moved his headquarters back to his hometown, New York City, and has adopted Albuquerque as his secondary base of U.S. operations. The Alibi spoke with him over the phone.

      R.I.P. (Regulate In Peace), Nate Dogg.

      My homie Kevin sent me this message after learning that Long Beach rapper Nate Dogg died on Tuesday at 41: “I can’t believe it ... or maybe I just don't want to. But the rhythm is no longer the bass, and the bass is no longer the treble.”

        Busdriver

        An underground MC’s road isn’t paved in gold

        Busdriver has never been a superstar. But if someone gave him the keys to the music-industry-mobile, he says he would surely go for a ride.

        Bump It!

        OMG! It’s summer. Y’know how I know? I mean, other than the short skirts all around town.

        Bass baby. It’s blaring out of cars all over Central. Just now, on a quick ciggie break I got a taste of the old school. N.W.A.’s “F* Tha Police,” Onyx’s “Slam” (seriously, and that was NOT expected) and a little throwback from a few years ago, Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” Yay!

        I love cruisin’ music, though I’m never too good at choosing my own selections. In high school my best friend and I went for a little Main Street U.S.A. drive through downtown Silver City -- where she’d just moved -- blasting Smashing Pumpkins. Naturally, we got some funny looks, but eventually she made friends anyway. (In my own defense, I at least made sure her Grateful Dead CD stayed where it belonged, in the case under the seat.)

          A murder of crows can’t out-creep Tech N9ne.

          Tech N9ne

          Tears of a clown

          Rarely do face paint and hardcore rap seamlessly fit together, but for Kansas City’s Tech N9ne, it’s been his steez for the past two decades. The self-proclaimed “weirdo rapper” deals in fallen angels and other dark material that places him worlds apart from other MCs. It’s not all about bling, bitches or Bentleys—he rhymes like he’s narrating a horror film. Tech’s style murders the competition by combining wicked, tricky wordplay, melodic hooks and incredibly speedy rap. But the most impressive thing about Tech N9ne isn’t his music—it’s his work ethic.
