I woke up Autograf‘s Mikul and Louis from a nap when I met then at the hotel. In fact they asked for another quick 15 minutes of sleep before we chatted.
Chicago indie dance band Autograf is three guys: Mikul Wing, Louis Kha and Jake Carpenter. Autograf started as an art collective modeled after Andy Warhol‘s legendary New York Factory scene. While working on art installations, Autograf made a few bootleg remixes (including 50 Cent, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations) to fuel parties at their Future Factory space. These remixes became incredibly popular and soon offical remixes followed which eventually led to Autograf releasing original material.
Louis and Mikul were still groggy and disoriented when I woke them up the second time, but we had a great chat. How did an art collective become a dance act? What does the band mean when they tell each other to “bask like a lizard?” We start with the most important question: If Autograf is three guys, and Louis and Mikul get the two beds in the Autograf hotel room, where does the third man sleep? Listen to our chat.

Here’s the extended version of my hang session with Autograf so you can hear all the stuff that won’t fit into radio length. Listen!
Our own DJ Hedspin collaborates with San Fran’s Deejay Theory for a 2014 version of Lil Kim’s single “The Jump Off” from her 2003 album La Bella Mafia. The originally Timbaland produced track gets a fresh 2014 club flip by the two DJ’s, stream or download above!

Let me start off by saying this, there are plenty of reasons to hate Iggy Azalea. She’s a white female from Australia who raps about bad bitches but models for Williminia. Moreover, one might argue that she temporarily exploited her relationship (or lack there of) with A$AP Rocky for publicity and/or industry respect. In the end, Iggy is left with a “Live Love A$AP” tattoo on her finger and he blatantly denies the relationship altogether.
However, beyond her porcelain skin, unstable love life, and frequent feuds with fellow female rappers, most notably Azealia Banks, you can’t deny the girls got lyrical flow. While she’s no Missy Elliot or even Lil’ Kim circa 2000, Iggy’s blatant sexuality mixed with her grimey rhymes make it impossible not to listen at least once.
After several mixtapes Iggy released her first EP Glory in July of this year, with features from T.I., Pusha T, and Mike Posner. It’s lyrics are at times outrageous, as Iggy likes to rap about her physical appearance, materialist tendencies, and sexual exploits. But in reality, that’s exactly what most male MC’s do and we think nothing of it. Iggy isn’t taking herself too seriously and thus neither should we.
Is she as good as Azealia? I guess that’s up for you to decide. No trolling here.
