Milwaukee's AUTOMatic are masters of the kind of true-head hip-hop that completely proliferated the local rap scene for most of the '00s. Back then there were more rappers claiming to represent "real hip-hop" than there were being accused of making whatever the fake stuff was, but that's gradually changed, as the scene has grown with the times, adopting new, more modern styles and moving past old ...

Since the genre’s earliest days, MCs have described rap as poetry, an assertion that once seemed bold but now seems indisputable. Of course rap is poetry. It's a uniquely insular strain of poetry, though, more interesting in quoting itself and inventing its own language and traditions than it is in quoting the classics, so it’s rare to find a rapper who cites literary poetry as a direct influe...

Lately I’ve been a little obsessed with Trap-A-Holics’ Certified Trap mixes. If you’ve never heard them before, they’re gleefully ridiculous, featuring dubstep makeovers of recent trap-rap tracks. Basically, DJs take some of the loudest, least subtle rap of the moment and rework it in the style of some of the loudest, least subtle electronic music of the moment, but there’s something und...

“Got it on my own like Oprah’s network / Now I’m just trying to make Oprah’s net worth,” Pizzle raps on his latest mixtape, Insomnia 2, which DJBooth.net debuted last month. Yes, last month, meaning I’m a little bit late to this one, but perhaps that’s just as well, since Insomnia 2 is solidly warm-weather, windows-down music—all expensive cars, popped champagne and upward mobility...

A technology-forward update on the Postal Service’s remote-album formula, Eric & Magill’s 2010 debut All Those I Know was pieced together by long-distance friends Eric Osterman and Ryan Weber, former players in the indie-rock band Camden who were living in Michigan and Milwaukee, respectively. Making the most of their Wi-Fi connections, the two swapped song ideas, piecing together the albu...

Gerald Walker has a new mixtape out. If that headline sounds familiar, it should: This is the rapper's seventh mixtape in about two years. That prolificacy is working well for him; right now he's the only Milwaukee rapper whose every move is charted by national rap blogs. His mellow new On Your Side Pt. 2 reunites him with his producer of choice, Dallas's Cardo, and it's as good an introduction as...

After an unusual quiet period, R. Kelly returned this week with The Demo Tape, a new DJ Drama mix loaded with interpolations of recent singles like Kanye West's "Love Lockdown," Keri Hilson's "Turning Me on," Soulja Boy's "Turn My Swag On," T. Pain's "Chopped & Screwed" and Jeremih's possible Song of the Summer "Birthday Sex." The mix hits plenty of sweet spots, as R. Kelly releases usually do, bu...
