OH NO THEY DIDN’T. my dudes in the niceguys are only the third hip-hop act to be on the cover of the coveted local magazine houston press. they got a real nice look over there with a cover story and the whole 9. to celebrate, they’ve released “ari gold,” the first single from their upcoming ep – the james kelley ep, which is dropping this month.
good clothes, good music and some other shit like that is all you need to know.

the houston press has a commissioned blog who sends us here at wwm nothing but love, so it’s about time to repay the favor. rocks off recently got the chance to interview brandon boyd, whom i’m sure all of you are familiar with.
incubus is playing the houston show tonight at the cynthia woods mitchell pavillion and after that off-kilter setlist they gave houston a couple years back, i’m ready for this greatest hits-powered set. really looking forward to hearing more off make yourself and morning view tonight.
anyway, boyd spoke briefly with the man about the recent hiatus and new material among other things. hit the jump for the interview.
congrats to my dude fat tony for winning a 2009houston press music award for the best underground hip-hop. there’s a lot of good up-and-comers in this city, so it’s nice to see him cop one. this is his second year in a row picking up the award. here’s to a 3-peat in 2010′s.
