  1. good call on the moondog, you’ll also enjoy “The Hot Is On The Left” too in that case!

    Pip Skid will be dropping his Pip Donahue Remix project at the same time as SideWalk. Both will be available as free downloads or by donation in very early August! Physical copies will also be available. I may have some @ Summer Fling if its finished.

    Just to clarify, Marathon Of Dope is not necessarily a label (but could be in certain cases), but more of a imprint/website that will be dedicated to hosting new and past releases by certain artists for download (either by set price, free or by donation).

    Thanks for the feedback ya’ll. I am excited to come visit and rap the new shit in your backyards!

  2. good news!

    gumshoe will be rocking a show with us in vancity on august 11th at the lamplighter!

    50 fingers will be out one day!!!
