Killa Kill aka Mike Bigga visits Jordan over at The Daily Habit for a live performance. And destroys.

"I'm the product of the age of narcotics which means I'm dope like the pills y'all swallow..."

Thanks, The Riverboat Gamblers!

The great indie record store Amoeba, which was outlets in the Bay Area and here in LA, has a video series called "What's In Your Bag?" Various high-cred bands go shopping at Amoeba and talk about why they picked what they pick.

In the episode above, sent to me by listener Paul, the Texas punk band The Riverboat Gamblers discuss their picks - among them Jimmy Cliff and No Age. One of the guys in the band picked out Killer Mike's debut LP, and much to my surprise, he said his inspiration was hearing Mike on his "favorite show," The Sound of Young America!

Thanks, guy from Riverboat Gamblers! That's nice of you!

(PS: I recommend Mike's two indie LPs, I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind volumes 1 & 2, over his debut, which has some great tracks but is a bit hit-and-miss.)
