French Montana: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013

NFL free agent/enfant terrible Chad Johnson (aka Chad Ochocinco) has had several run-ins with the rap world, having repeatedly chilled with Lil Wayne, and (jokingly?) sparred with Game, Joe Budden, and Wale on Twitter. With French Montana's recent "Ocho Cinco," Johnson is immortalized in proudly superficial banger form. The Moroccan-American Bronx resident born Karim Kharbouch uses Johnson's August 2012 headbutting incident as a springboard for goofy blowjob jokes and puns, a big and beefy club-pleasing beat, and, as Montana is wont to do, hosting many a guest rapper. The song is a fine way to catch up with the dopey party starter, Coke Boys member, advocate of "Haaanhhh" (that's his catchphrase), and bling-and-cash enthusiast before Montana's long-incubating debut Excuse My French hits May 21. (That is, if the record doesn't get delayed again.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
