After a brief hiatus from Music Monday I’m back with a treat for you! Desmond Bailey aka Baer C00n The Ewokk’s Goon Hand 2. You may remember us mentioning Des in an October edition of End Caps. For those of you just hearing of Baer Coon for the first time, Bailey is a goalie for the Chicago Outlaws, a semi-pro box team which plays in the CILL. Des’ colorful and eccentric nature makes for a great character in the cage and on the mic.

I am not sure if it’s the pollen, the running snow melt, or the fresh green shoots sprouting from the ground but for some reason, spring always gets me thinking of bluegrass, folk, and general finger-pickin’ goodness.

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.

Happy New Year to all the LAS readers across the globe!
