At this year’s SXSW, we caught up with a number of artists to get their stories from the road. Rappers Lecrae, Trae Tha Truth, Casey Veggies, Skyzoo, Nyck Caution and Dee-1 all recalled funny, crazy or otherwise memorable experiences from their many road trips—from hitting a deer to taking a Greyhound cross country.
Soul Assassins/Hi Def Media producer G Rocka and fellow SA affiliate Medi have come together with The DJBooth to bring fans their new collaborative street release, the #NastyPercents mixtape. The project features 18 original records from the collaborators, including reader-approved singles “The Source” and “No Geek Sh!t.” G Rocka and Medi produce all beats throughout #NastyPercents, which packs guest rhymes from such heavyweight emcees as A$AP Rocky, Crooked I, Jay Rock, Joell Ortiz, Skyzoo and Trae the Truth.
