Finish off Monday like you mean it with this (free) banger from Central California rapper Fashawn's upcoming Grizzly City Volume 3 mixtape. Entitled "Santiago's Revenge," it has the 21-year-old rapper weaving lines through a swaggering Exile production. With huge synth-string sounds and some exotic vocal sample, the backing track is a bit better than your basic hard-hitting blaster. But Fashawn's midrangey swat turns the number into a big, pump-you-up kinda track that's worth spinning over and over again. If the fact that it kicks off with the line "I be movin' zips like Sendspace/ And I ain't talkin' bout no motherfuckin' mixtapes" doesn't entice you, we promise other rhymes in here will.

  • 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.'"
