This Month’s (Updated) Guests at Double Entendre

Design by Adam LaMonaca

We were so excited to have our good friend Kuf Knotz kick off the second installment of Double Entendre that we totally forgot what Forest Gump realized during his Running Phase: shit happens.  Sometimes.

Unfortunately, Kuf will not be able to have a go at it on Saturday as he is recovering from surgery but he assured he will be ready for his debut at Slingluff Gallery in 2011.  We lucked out and hit up Jawnzap7, he of “Dead Queens 2” fame, and one of the hardest working emcee/producer/performer/songwriters in Philadelphia, to step in like Roy Hobbs in the bottom of the ninth to knock it off the stadium lights as we run the bases drenched in sparks and eternal glory.  After wrapping up his long-awaited second LP I Hate My Stupid Rap Life, he obliged.

Jawnzap7

Here’s some of Jawnzap7’s best works before you meet him on Saturday night at 8pm!

“Pens4Paper” live

Live at the Turntable Club in Baltimore

And here’s some choice works from Mike Maxwell whose collection “Minor Superior” is featured this month at Slingluff Gallery:

Mally & The Sundance Kid “Lights Off”

Man, I can’t believe it’s been since three years since Mally first mailed me his CD The Letter, complete with a personal handwritten thank you note.  He’s come a long way since the days of rhyming over Dilla instrumentals on less than desirable microphones.  It’s been a treat listening to him develop, make mistakes and tighten up his chamber with each passing song, project, and year of growth.

Aside from collaborating together on Bring Me the Head of Zilla Rocca and the remixed version of the mixtape via 33jones.com (plug plug both available to your left plug plug plug), Mally and I have kicked it as much as we can considering he’s neighbors with Joe Mauer, Rhymesayers, and the black hole that is the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Unlike blog/boutique rappers, Mally doesn’t toss out MP3’s like hot hand grenades on a weekly basis.  So when a song like “Lights Off” lands in my inbox, I’m not trigger happy with the “Report as Spam” button on my gmail account.

“Lights Off” sounds like the perfect opener or closer for a live set.  The organ chords and plodding kick drums from The Sundance Kid provide enough space for Mally to unload hell.  He’s moved away from the Budden-esque flows and emotional meanderings found on past projects like The Passion because sometimes a beat just needs to be bludgeoned without extra dressing.

Here’s a Let Me Learn You Something segment I did with Mally back in ’08 if you’d like to get more familiar
