In 2006, I created the Hip-Hop Chess Federation to teach kids chess and correlating life skills. A few years ago, a young Black female student tried to sneak past me in the lobby at John O’Connell High School where I worked as a security guard. She was late. Being the ever inquisitive security guard, I slipped into stealth mode. It was a hot morning. As she tried to skip through the lobby entrance I playfully popped outta the shadows and said “What time is it?!”

St. Louis emcee Steve N. Clair of The Domino Effect teams up with Deloney to drop his latest track, “There They Go.” The perfect mix of guitars, drums, lyrics, flow, and bravado. Check out the track below.
T-Dubb-O takes aim at the St. Louis and U.S Government about the State of Emergency that was illegally issued in Ferguson/St.Louis, MO this week. He also calls out Steve Stenger, Ron Johnson, Chief Dotson, Chief Belmar, & President Obama while explaing there has been an emergency for black people for over 400 years. Listen to the song which comes from one of the most active Ferguson protestors.
As a huge fan of the now defunct New Zealand band @peace, I was disappointed the guys euthanized the group. But I was ecstatic when one of the group’s vocalist, Tom Scott, told me they had some tricks up their sleeves. Out of the ashes from Melbourne, the hip-hop duo Average Rap Band was formed. The duo consist of Tom Scott and Lui Tuiasau as they rhyme over Dandruff Dicky and Hone St John production. The six track EP, Stream of Nonsenseness, is heavily focused on lyrics and the unique instrumentation by Dandruff and Hone. Check out the co-featured album of the month below and purchase it on Bandcamp.
In 2011, Mitt Romney announced to the United States that he was uniquely qualified to run for president because of his business background of turning things around. The country was several years removed from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and still facing many obstacles on the road to recovery. Romney saw himself as the right person for the right time to drive American forward. Unfortunately for him, the economy, by and large, operates independently from the executive branch of government, so as well-intentioned as he may have (or may not have) been, he was wrong, or at least misguided, and the economy continued as did the Obama presidency, making Mitt a mere footnote in American election history.
“I deserve an encore, y’all should welcome me back…”
Those are the first words that you hear on the opening track “Encore”. This serves to be a fitting title and the perfect introduction to the second installment of JP One’s Fire & Brimstone mixtape series.
JP One, aka Jackpot The Chosen One, hails from Detroit, MI and grew up in Benton Harbor. JP One had a rough childhood, but throughout all the trials and tribulations, one thing that has remained the same is JP One himself.
Our good friends at The College of Hip-Hop got us hip to an artist by the name of JP One, aka Jackpot Tha Chosen One. We got the chance to talk with the Detroit emcee and discuss maters such as Detroit hip-hop, working with artists like Boldy James, Black Milk and others, and tons more. See what he had to say and more below.
