Pink Navel spits heady tongue twisters on “Raw Navel”

Although Pink Navel, the solo project of smooth poet Devin Bee, released his full length album Raw Navel over a year ago, the rapper/beatmaker deserves some current recognition. Bee’s particular brand of oddball hip-hop is heavily driven by a stream-of-conscious and absurdist flow of spoken word poetry, highlighted by crunchy lofi beats swaddled in background noise and quirky synth patches. Bee’s poetic content bares a stark similarity to Mike Doughty’s, the mythic voice behind cult group Soul Coughing, while his delivery resembles the smooth confidence of 2000s alt-hip groups like Aesop Rock and Blue Scholars. Raw Navel, in all of its warped obscurity, is a clever and compelling release, and a much needed breath of life in New England’s alternative hip hop scene. You can stream Raw Navel below. -Charley Ruddell

Buzz Alert: Bohan Phoenix's Chinese-Brooklynite hip hop

Bohan Phoenix raps like he’s born and raised in Brooklyn.  His style is so close to the Beast Coast vibe, that he could be a Flatbush Zombie bitten by a Chengdu werewolf.  He flexes flows between English and Mandarin with such ease, sometimes it’s hard to tell; you think he’s just flowing some fresh new slang you’re not hip to.  His beat selection is Sichuan.  His flow is sharp as a Jian.  His swag is Flatbush AF.  His Jala EP is rolling into your collection like a cloud of Kush smoke.  You’ll be rapping in Mandarin before you know it. See him live at Zone One at Elsewhere on 03.09.

Miss Eaves brings Brooklyn's protest hip hop to SXSW + plays Silent Barn tomorrow (02.14)

Brooklyn Multimedia artist Miss Eaves is Feminasty as she wanna be.  She says what she wants and, doing her own design and video directing, she gets what she wants.  Since her Feminasty album dropped last year, she’s been fomenting her assault on the mainstream.  With nods from HuffPo and Glamour, she’s got a strong start.  Her throwback flow is a pleasant contrast to the electro-clash production she’s currently rocking.  If you’re looking for something to rock on your next roadtrip to a protest, Miss Eaves will let everyone know how you roll. Oh and, this year, she'll be at SXSW, but you can catch her at Silent Barn tomorrow for a V-Day Messup!
