[Mixtape] DIVINE CIGHT – “Speak Your Mind”

DIVINE CIGHT is an up and coming rapper representing D.C. He fuses north and south sounds well and his music has much style and substance. His most recent mixtape Speak Your Mind hosted by DJ InfamousVA is a perfect example of this. There are fun and laid-back tracks like "Spliff" and "Teach Me How To Roll" but DIVINE CIGHT also has some more serious and personal lyrics on tracks like "Third Cup" and "All On Me Part 1". There is a good balance of sounds and the mixtape gives us a good look into the artist's mind. Listen to Speak Your Mind below and share your thoughts with us in the comments.

[Interview] Teenburger talk early influences, working with The Herbaliser, and how they first met

Interview by: Martin Bauman What do you get when you combine two of the most talented Canadian emcees, who make sure not to take themselves too seriously and also happen to be best friends? The long answer is a unique combination of lyricism and just plain fun. The short answer is Teenburger. Ghettosocks and Timbuktu are the perfect yin to each other's yang. As they'll tell you, they each have their own distinctive style (Ghettosocks's words: "Timbuktu is Timbuktu; Ghettosocks is Ghettosocks"), but their styles complement one another so well. It's no wonder that they also collaborate as part of Wolves and Backburner. Now they're collaborating once again, this time teaming up with Ninja Tune jazz rap heavyweights The Herbaliser. The Come Up Show caught up with Teenburger to talk early influences, working with The Herbaliser, how they first met, and much more. Read the full interview after the jump.
