A SOTB Q&A with @Betta_Mo

A hidden gem from Mo and Rob Regal (f/k/a Lyriciss). Hints for a future SpeedontheBeat.com interview, perhaps? Since we are in the season of giving, I felt that it was only right to switch up our interviews today. Today, I got the chance to catch up with DMV activist, do-gooder, and “part-rapper” Mo Betta, to […]

Dugee F Buller – GDLU EP

One of my favorite artists, social activists–and Death of the King collaborator–Dugee F. Buller recently released his GDLU EP via YouTube. All I’ve got to say is the EP is amazing. If you were a fan of Dugee’s interview and Twitter thoughts, the title track from this EP, or even his verse on “Come and Get It” […]

Lex Rush – Unbridled Enthusiasm EP Review

A few weeks ago, I interviewed New York lyricist and former Terp Lex Rush. Yesterday, the EP in question, Unbridled Enthusiasm, released. The collection comes in at about twenty-one minutes, and is a collection of tracks Lex held in the stash (or remastered) over the years. It has a legitimate “90s” feel (think Joey Bada$$ meets […]

UMD Gets a…Nightclub?: The Final Chapter

Last year, the University of Maryland’s (in)famous Route One was the recipient of a new nightclub-like spot in the form of Terrapin’s Turf. My first two encounters with the atmosphere were, to put it lightly, pretty infuriating–mainly because this place had “hit” written all over it, but ended up giving me something else that ends […]
