Music Monday: Kid Ink’d

0 - Published January 13, 2014 by in The Life

Producer recently-turned rapper Kid Ink hales from LA and has been turning heads (or more so ears) over the last couple years with a series of mixtapes that earned him a well-deserved contract with RCA. As of late, it seems like there are plenty of new artists sprouting all over the hip-hop nation, but few with both the producing and rapping skills that Kid Ink supplies.

Tune in Tuesday: Wooster Wind Down

Happy New Year to all the LAS readers across the globe! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and got to rip some rope despite all of these nasty weather systems we’re seeing across the country (time for the old latex gloves and Vaseline trick). To start up 2014, I’m actually bringing you somewhat of a throwback with Santa Cruz’s own Wooster (not the college).

Music Monday: Taking It G-Eazy

A friend of mine turned me onto Oakland-born rapper G-Eazy a couple of years ago after he teamed up with Hoodie Allen for “Lady Killers,” which was featured on his 2012 album Must Be Nice. I ended up seeing the two perform together in Boston earlier this year, which was a treat to say the least. Ever since, I’ve been loosely following this laid back, stylish rapper and noticed that he has been pumping out singles over the last few months.

Hot and fresh out the kitchen! Yes, it’s that time of the week again. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and start to Hanukkah. Since I’m sure all of you were remixing your Thanksgiving dinners into leftover sandwiches and stews all weekend, I figured it was a great week to bring you some chopped […]

Music Monday: Off the Main-stream

Good Monday to all the Lax All Stars across the globe! With Tom and Peyton grappling for NFL legend status and Kanye and Miley battling for the controversy spotlight, I thought it would be appropriate to stay off the beaten path for another Music Monday.

To close out your Monday, we’re coming through with a great new reggae-rock album by Georgia’s own Passafire. This band formed back in 2003 when a bunch of college kids got together and started experimenting with their sound, which has evolved into something on the edgier side of that chill alternative beach sound.

The first two installments of this “Concussions in Lacrosse” series detailed what a concussion really is and why we should care about them. We covered a number of potential consequences of concussions (Post-Concussion Syndrome, Second Impact Syndrome and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) to outline why it is important to pay attention to them and protect ourselves.

Music Wednesday? Eminem’s New Album

0 - Published November 13, 2013 by in The Life

We’re back with a new Music Monday, on Wednesday, and for this rare Wed morning edition, we’re having a look at rap legend Eminem’s new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. I’m going to go right ahead and say that Eminem was, is (still), and always will be, one of the best rappers in the game. Yes, he’s had some sub-par albums in recent years, but I think that Recovery and especially this new album, which released November 5th, show that he hasn’t lost a step and remains one of the best lyricists and collaborators.

Last week, we covered the basics of what a concussion actually is, what symptoms can be experienced, and the common causes in the game of lacrosse. In this post, I’ll be discussing why we should care about concussions and what type of consequences can be associated with this type of injury. A 2012 study reported that among high school sports, concussion rate was […]

Let me introduce to you the Dallas duet known simply as The O’s. Taylor Young and John Pedigo played together in various other bands before striking out alone on their guitar and banjo in 2008. These two can absolutely jam and really show it on their new album, entitled Thunderdog, which let’s be honest is one […]

Today we’re checking in with two well-known “college rap” rappers that have been maturing over the last couple years… and moving away from the party rap scene into their own deeper genres.
