OG Maco
(OG Maco)

MissInfo: When I get fed up by all the passive aggressive boasting on twitter, all the crap that gets wrapped up and presented like “creative” writing genius, and all the holier-than-thou post-racially-correct how-dare-you thinkpieces… I find a happy place with a song of anti-social, often ignorant, “aggressive content” (c) 50 Cent. For the past month or so, that song has been “(Bitch) U Guessed It” by Atlanta’s OG Maco. (Prior to that it was Stitches “Brick In Yo Face” which was totally terrible and embarrassing…and of course, young Bobby Shmurda.)

But right now…it’s all about OG Maco. This song sounds like a 2014 Mystikal on a syrup bender with a jumbo side order of demonic possession. Yet another voice out of what I’ve been calling ALT-lanta. Maco released an EP with Key! last month called and now there’s a video!

Watch OG Maco (with an appearance from his boy Rome Fortune) tear the telly up in “U Guessed It”…

boaz like this

Boaz has been in beast mode all summer, and less than a month after dropping his Real Name, No Gimmicks Vol. 1 EP, the Steel City spitter returns with a fiery video to his !llmind-produced heater, “Like This.” With Matt Meehan behind the lens, Boaz spits his rhymes into the camera with as much fire as the rising flames that surround him. It’s junkyard dog rap at its finest, but just grimy enough to bump in the Benz. Stay tuned for Boaz’s Rostrum Records debut dropping this Fall.

> at  on April 16, 2014 in New York City.

After five years with the house that Hov built, Wale has parted ways with Roc Nation Management, XXL confirms. You may notice the MMG rapper has already been removed from Roc Nation’s website, because his move actually happened earlier this summer with his previous manager, Rich Kleiman, shifting his focus to Roc Nation Sports.

Keeping it in the sports field, Wale has since signed with 77 North Management, the company founded by British tennis star Andy Murray who also manages the majority of LeBron James’ affairs. The decision appears to be purely career-driven as Wale looks to finish his upcoming LP, The Album About Nothing, due later this year.
