If You Don't Know, Now You Know: Storage 24

Damn, these motherfuckers rock pretty hard... Where had they been hiding all this time? Anyway, everybody, meet Storage 24, a bad-ass rock band from Jackson, Mississippi. They already have a record out, and their 'No Surrender' video is a good introduction to their work (watch it below). Never mind the weird-ass name (they say the band was named after the storage unit it rehearsed in... great! :-P). If you… Continue

FREE DOWNLOAD: M.I.A.'s ViCKI LEEKX Mixtape Will Rub Some The Wrong Way

ViCKI LEEKX... Sounds like WikiLeaks, uh? You bet! M.I.A. just released a mixtape today, and as always, controversy and irony are on the menu. The music is a fan pleaser, way more "accessible" than her album /\/\ /\ Y /\. Still experimental and quirky though, don't worry. :) Featuring productions by Danjahands, Munchi, M.I.A., Diplo, Blaqstarr and more. Download it for free below and let us know what you think!

Lenny Kravitz On Teena Marie: “She Gave Me A Bedroom And Fed Me”

Beef Aside, Thomas dishes post The Mars Volta

I wanted the beef on his split with The Mars Volta, but he wouldn't dish out. At the age of 27, Thomas Pridgen, is far classier than most musicians I've encountered over the last year, even with his split with the Grammy Award winning band, The Mars Volta, back in 2009.  For the last year, Thomas has been tediously working on his new music venture, The… Continue

Fair Warning: Ninjasonik Dropping New Mix CD Jan. 12th 2011

If you were at this year's Afro-punk Festival, you've probably seen Brooklyn Hip-hop/Punk group Ninjasonik at work.

No words yet on whether or not they'll bless our ears with delicate subtle gems like their previous hits… Continue

The oOohh Baby Gimme Mores Change Direction for XMas

Call it a definite post stocking stuffer...or fifth day of Kwanzaa gift, but what a treat it was to see the release of Canadian duo, The oOohh Baby Gimmie Mores, mixtape come out this week.  We haven't heard from the guys, Denzil and Cola in a while, since releasing their first album, Interchorus, back in 2008, when they also booked the Afro-punk 2009 summer festival.  The new… Continue

Tattoo of the week: Taking Ink to the Schools

When Stevey aka Blackboitatted e-mailed us images of his tattoos to be featured on Afropunk.com, we were floored by the detailing in his ink work and knew that this guy was serious about his body work.  We later discovered that he has started his own company in Boston called Addicted 2 Ink, where he plans to expand the tattoo life style to different sectors such as after school programs and kid's events.  His brand is already located in Virginia, NYC, ATL, Chicago,…

Beautiful Black Women 2.0- Who's Measuring Your Beauty?

Beauty is one of those misnomers like the chicken and the egg.  What came first?  Were we born with our idea of beauty in our head and then shaped our lifestyle around who or what we find beautiful OR is it that we are born with no concept of beauty and those around us shape and form our ideas for us?  And if that's the case, in a society that has been dominated by white men, do other races ideals of beauty stand a chance of being considered beautiful in our subconscious…

Coming out of the closet for the holidays

In the holiday season, there are halls to be decked, presents to be bought (or made), carols to be sung and family to be dealt with. For many of us, it is that yearly trek that updates us on family and for some of us, reminds us why we don’t often stay in touch for the rest of the year. It could be the teen niece wants to dress like Nicki Minaj and throws a tantrum if you tell her to turn down her Usher. The deadbeat cousin that can always think of some get-rich-quick scam – I… Continue

Janelle puts face with sponsor

Whether you fully comprehend Janelle Monae's android themed musical compositions or not, there is no denying that 2010 was her breakout year on a mainstream level.  Before this year, Janelle has been known as the underground artist signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Records, dazzled with the pompadour, perfectly tailored suits, strongly believing in time travel and androids, and for avoiding live television appearances. This year, the 25-year-old Janelle broke out and…

VIDEO: 'Dead Christmas Trees' Look So Sad to Screaming Headless Torsos

If the headline of this article made any sense to you, then you know about experimental rock & funk band Screaming Headless Torsos, comprised of respected musicians such as guitarist David Fiuczynski, percussionist Daniel Sadownick, new soulful vocalist Freedom Bremner (+ bad-ass guests Gene Lake on drums and and Fima Ephron on the bass). The guys are back with a new tongue-in-cheek holiday single and video, 'Dead Christmas Trees', lamenting the fate of conifers right after… Continue

FREE DOWNLOAD: '6 Hours' By Kenyan Metal Band Last Year's Tragedy

What better way to celebrate the holidays than a free download from a Kenyan metal band, huh? Yeah, we can't find one either. Remember when we told you that the rock scene was vibrant in Nairobi? One of the band's we introduced you to back then was Last Year's Tragedy. They released a new track, '6 Hours' (an 'ode to the broken-hearted') and decided to offer it as a free download… Continue
