The Beatnuts 

Milk Me

Wednesday, Sep 15 2004
These frat boys of East Coast rap return to the scene with their sixth album, a mixture of funky productions and juvenile rhymes. Not much has changed for Psycho Les and Juju since their early '90s sleepers like "Lick the P*ssy" and "Here's a Drink" -- they're still mainly concerned with ladies, liquor, and letting loose at fake MCs. The album's single, "Hot," blazes with a heavy beat and some serious horns, but for a group that prides itself on excellent production, about half of the album falls flat. "U Nomsayin" gets an extra punch from Roc-A-Fella MC Freeway, and "Confused Rappers," featuring Rahzel, is an example of classic 'Nuts (i.e., clever lyrics over an uptempo instrumental). Still, Milk Me is an average LP with some standout tracks, which could be seen as an accomplishment in this era of lackluster hip hop, but fans of the Queens duo expect -- and deserve -- something more.

  • 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.'"
